• emboli
  • There was no significant difference in the number of fat emboli in the lungs of both groups. (otago.ac.nz)
  • The new reamer system incorporates irrigation and aspiration during reaming, theoretically minimizing pressurization and fat emboli. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The objective of this study is to determine effectiveness of reaming in diminishing fat emboli to the lungs as evidenced by decreased numbers of large fat droplets entering the right heart as measured by transesophageal echocardiography during the reaming process. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • droplets
  • The purpose of the study is to see if there is a difference in the amount of fat droplets reaching the heart during surgery between the standard reamer currently used and a new reamer system which is expected to reduce the fat going into the blood, via an intraoperative echocardiography done through the food pipe.
