Peri-operative changes in echocardiographic measurements and plasma atrial and brain natriuretic peptide concentrations in 3 dogs with patent ductus arteriosus. (1/3746)

Peri-operative changes in echocardiographic measurements and plasma levels of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) were investigated for 1 month in 3 dogs with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Post-operative left ventricular end-diastolic dimention and fractional shortening decreased in all cases. Pre-operatively increased plasma ANP concentrations reduced dramatically after the operation. Peri-operative changes in plasma BNP levels had slightly S-shaped curves in all cases. These observations suggest that post-operative responsiveness of ANP and cardiac function are rapid in comparison with cardiac morphological changes, and BNP has a different pathophysiological significance from ANP in dogs with PDA.  (+info)

Usefulness of fractional flow reserve to predict clinical outcome after balloon angioplasty. (2/3746)

BACKGROUND: After regular coronary balloon angioplasty, it would be helpful to identify those patients who have a low cardiac event rate. Coronary angiography alone is not sensitive enough for that purpose, but it has been suggested that the combination of optimal angiographic and optimal functional results indicates a low restenosis chance. Pressure-derived myocardial fractional flow reserve (FFR) is an index of the functional severity of the residual epicardial lesion and could be useful for that purpose. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 60 consecutive patients with single-vessel disease, balloon angioplasty was performed by use of a pressure instead of a regular guide wire. Both quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) and measurement of FFR were performed 15 minutes after the procedure. A successful angioplasty result, defined as a residual diameter stenosis (DS) <50%, was achieved in 58 patients. In these patients, DS and FFR, measured 15 minutes after PTCA, were analyzed in relation to clinical outcome. In those 26 patients with both optimal angiographic (residual DS by QCA /=0.90) results, event-free survival rates at 6, 12, and 24 months were 92+/-5%, 92+/-5%, and 88+/-6%, respectively, versus 72+/-8%, 69+/-8%, and 59+/-9%, respectively, in the remaining 32 patients in whom the angiographic or functional result or both were suboptimal (P=0.047, P=0.028, and P=0.014, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with a residual DS /=0.90, clinical outcome up to 2 years is excellent. Therefore, there is a complementary value of coronary angiography and coronary pressure measurement in the evaluation of PTCA result.  (+info)

Reduction of laparoscopic-induced hypothermia, postoperative pain and recovery room length of stay by pre-conditioning gas with the Insuflow device: a prospective randomized controlled multi-center study. (3/3746)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy and safety of Insuflow (Georgia BioMedical, Inc.) filter heater hydrator device in reducing the incidence, severity and extent of hypothermia, length of recovery room stay and postoperative pain at the time of laparoscopy. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, blinded, controlled multi-center study. Patients underwent gynecologic procedures via laparoscopy; surgeons, anesthesiologists and recovery room personnel assessed the results. SETTING: Seven North American institutions. PATIENTS: Seventy-two women for safety evaluation and efficacy studies. INTERVENTIONS: Intraoperative pre-conditioning of laparoscopic gas with the Insuflow device (treatment) or standard raw gas (control) during laparoscopic surgery and postoperatively. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence, severity and extent of hypothermia, postoperative pain perception and length of recovery room stay. RESULTS: The Insuflow group had significantly less intraoperative hypothermia, reduced length of recovery room stay and reduced postoperative pain. Pre-conditioning of laparoscopic gas by filtering heating and hydrating was well tolerated with no adverse effects. The safety profile of the Insuflow pre-conditioned gas showed significant benefits compared to currently used raw gas. CONCLUSIONS: Pre-conditioning laparoscopic gas by filtering heating and hydrating with the Insuflow device was significantly more effective than the currently used standard raw gas and was safe in reducing or eliminating laparoscopic-induced hypothermia, shortening recovery room length of stay and reducing postoperative pain.  (+info)

Manipulation of total knee replacements. Is the flexion gained retained? (4/3746)

As part of a prospective study of 476 total knee replacements (TKR), we evaluated the use of manipulation under anaesthesia in 47 knees. Manipulation was considered when intensive physiotherapy failed to increase flexion to more than 80 degrees. The mean time from arthroplasty to manipulation was 11.3 weeks (median 9, range 2 to 41). The mean active flexion before manipulation was 62 degrees (35 to 80). One year later the mean gain was 33 degrees (Wilcoxon signed-rank test, range -5 to 70, 95% CI 28.5 to 38.5). Definite sustained gains in flexion were achieved even when manipulation was performed four or more months after arthroplasty (paired t-test, p < 0.01, CI 8.4 to 31.4). A further 21 patients who met our criteria for manipulation declined the procedure. Despite continued physiotherapy, there was no significant increase in flexion in their knees. Six weeks to one year after TKR, the mean change was 3.1 degrees (paired t-test, p = 0.23, CI -8.1 to +2).  (+info)

Hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia in children with chronic renal failure. (5/3746)

BACKGROUND: Hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia has been identified as a significant risk factor for the occurrence of atherosclerosis in adults with chronic renal failure. Because of its presumed direct toxic effect on the vascular wall, long-standing hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia in children with chronic renal failure might have an important influence on their risk of future development of atherosclerosis. Hitherto no data on hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia in children with renal failure have been published. METHODS: We investigated 16 children with chronic renal failure on conservative management, 12 children on haemodialysis and 17 children with a renal transplant. Age-matched controls were used for comparison. Plasma homocyst(e)ine levels after an overnight fast were determined by HPLC. Glomerular filtration rate was estimated by the Schwartz formula. RESULTS: Mean plasma homocyst(e)ine levels were 12.6 +/- 5.2 micromol/l in the conservatively managed group, 22.2 +/- 13.5 micromol/l in the haemodialysed group, 14.2 +/- 2.1 micromol/l in transplanted children with an estimated GFR > 60 ml/min/1.73 m2 and 17.5 +/- 5.1 micromol/l in transplanted children with a lower estimated GFR. In all groups homocyst(e)ine levels were significantly elevated as compared to controls. Homocyst(e)ine levels were significantly correlated with age and negatively correlated with estimated GFR and serum folate levels. CONCLUSIONS: Hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia is a feature of chronic renal failure in children as well as in adults. Elevated homocyst(e)ine levels can already be demonstrated in children with renal failure before end-stage renal disease has developed and persist after renal transplantation. Whether treatment of hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia in children with renal failure decreases the risk for future atherosclerosis remains to be proven.  (+info)

Immediate and early renal function after living donor transplantation. (6/3746)

BACKGROUND: In order to assess the immediate renal function after living donor transplantation, renal function was compared in eight renal allograft recipients and their living related kidney donors during the first 24 h after transplantation. METHODS: Substantial and comparable intraoperative volume loading with Ringer's acetate and mannitol was performed together with the administration of frusemide. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and effective renal plasma flow (ERPF) were estimated by the clearances of inulin and p-aminohippurane, respectively. Tubular reabsorptive function and injury were estimated from the clearance of lithium, the fractional excretion of sodium and the urinary excretion of N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase. RESULTS: One hour after completion of surgery, GFR (54 +/- 7 ml/min) and ERPF (294 +/- 35 ml/min) were only 30% lower in the grafts than in the remaining donor kidneys, increasing to similar levels within 3 h. Only minor tubular dysfunction and injury were revealed in the grafted kidneys, and these tended to normalize within 24 h. CONCLUSIONS: By the present transplantation procedure comprising short ischaemia time and substantial volume expansion combined with mannitol and frusemide administration, kidneys from living donors regain nearly normal function within a few hours after transplantation.  (+info)

Leptin in CAPD patients: serum concentrations and peritoneal loss. (7/3746)

BACKGROUND: To determine whether serum leptin concentrations in patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) are influenced by peritoneal loss of leptin and to compare serum leptin levels of normal subjects with those of patients receiving renal replacement therapy such as haemodialysis (HD), CAPD, or kidney transplantation. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Eighty-four individuals were investigated: six females and 14 males on standard CAPD; 13 females and 13 males on chronic HD; 10 female and eight male kidney transplant recipients, and 10 female and 10 male subjects as controls. Morning serum, 8-h and 24-h samples of peritoneal fluid concentrated to 6-20-fold by Centricon 3 (cutoff 3000 daltons), and 24-h urinary concentrations of leptin were measured with commercial RIA (Linco Research, Inc., USA). Venous blood and peritoneal fluid samples of albumin, beta2-microglobulin, glucose, urea, and creatinine were determined by standard laboratory techniques. Serum insulin levels were measured by radioimmunoassay. RESULTS: Patients (men and women) on CAPD and after kidney transplantation exhibited significantly higher serum concentrations of leptin and leptin/BMI ratios than control subjects. These increased values did not reach statistical significance in HD patients. Serum leptin concentrations were correlated very significantly with BMI in all cases (r=0.380, P<0.001). Moreover, in CAPD patients (r=0.630, P<0.007) and in HD patients (r=0.668, P<0.005), but not in kidney transplant recipients or control subjects, significant correlations were observed between serum leptin and insulin concentrations. Residual renal function (RRF) in the range 0-12.8 ml/min and serum beta2-microglobulin levels in the range 7.9-47.1 mg/l did not influence serum leptin levels in CAPD and HD patients. As expected, leptin was detected in the peritoneal fluid of CAPD patients. Twenty-four-hour peritoneal loss (30.95+/-21.05 ng/min) and 24-h peritoneal clearance (0.01+/-0.01 ml/kg/min) of leptin account for only 3.9% of estimated whole-body leptin production rate and 0.7% of leptin clearance from plasma respectively. Twenty-four-hour urinary losses of leptin in CAPD patients were negligible, accounting for 5.6+/-1.8% (range 0.3-15.2%) of total (peritoneal and urinary) loss of this hormone. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that serum leptin levels are not affected by continuous peritoneal loss of leptin during CAPD and that insulin resistance and hyperinsulinaemia contribute to elevated serum leptin concentrations in CAPD and HD patients. The aetiology of increased serum leptin levels in kidney transplant recipients is probably different from that in dialysis patients.  (+info)

Erythromycin enhances early postoperative contractility of the denervated whole stomach as an esophageal substitute. (8/3746)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether early postoperative administration of erythromycin accelerates the spontaneous motor recovery process after elevation of the denervated whole stomach up to the neck. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Spontaneous motor recovery after gastric denervation is a slow process that progressively takes place over years. METHODS: Erythromycin was administered as follows: continuous intravenous (i.v.) perfusion until postoperative day 10 in ten whole stomach (WS) patients at a dose of either 1 g (n = 5) or 2 g (n = 5) per day; oral intake at a dose of 1 g/day during 1.5 to 8 months after surgery in 11 WS patients, followed in 7 of them by discontinuation of the drug during 2 to 4 weeks. Gastric motility was assessed with intraluminal perfused catheters in these 21 patients, in 23 WS patients not receiving erythromycin, and in 11 healthy volunteers. A motility index was established by dividing the sum of the areas under the curves of >9 mmHg contractions by the time of recording. RESULTS: The motility index after IV or oral administration of erythromycin at and after surgery was significantly higher than that without erythromycin (i.v., 1 g: p = 0.0090; i.v., 2 g: p = 0.0090; oral, 1 g: p = 0.0017). It was similar to that in healthy volunteers (i.v., 1 g: p = 0.2818; oral, 1 g: p = 0.7179) and to that in WS patients with >3 years of follow-up who never received erythromycin (i.v., 1 g: p = 0.2206; oral, 1 g: p = 0.8326). The motility index after discontinuation of the drug was similar or superior to that recorded under medication in four patients who did not experience any modification of their alimentary comfort, whereas it dropped dramatically parallel to deterioration of the alimentary comfort in three patients. CONCLUSIONS: Early postoperative contractility of the denervated whole stomach pulled up to the neck under either i.v. or oral erythromycin is similar to that recovered spontaneously beyond 3 years of follow-up. In some patients, this booster effect persists after discontinuation of the drug.  (+info)

Results: The levels of CD152 in Group A showed an upward trend from the 3rd to 7th day, with a downward trend from the 7th to 14th day (20.12 ± 0.71%, 30.71 ± 1.14%, 13.50 ± 0.71% at postoperative days 3, 7, and 14, respectively, P , 0.05). The levels of CD154 in Group A showed a downward trend from the 3rd to 7th day, with an upward trend from the 7th to 14th day (10.00 ± 0.23%, 5.28 ± 0.69%, 14.67 ± 2.71% at postoperative days 3, 7, and 14, respectively, P , 0.05). The ratio of CD4+/CD8 + T in Group A showed a downward trend from the 3rd to 7th day, with the minimum at postoperative day 7, then an upward trend from the 7th to 14th day (P , 0.05). Meanwhile, the levels of CD45 and CD54 in Group A were found as the same trend as the ratio of CD4+/CD8 + T (CD45: 83.39 ± 2.56%, 82.74 ± 2.09%, 87.56 ± 2.11%; CD54: 3.80 ± 0.24%, 0.94 ± 0.40%, 3.41 ± 0.33% at postoperative days 3, 7, and 14, respectively, P , 0.05).

The methods used to follow up 575 kidney transplanted patients, (transplantations performed between October 1979 and November 1997) in the early (within 6 weeks) and late postoperative periods have been assessed. The diagnostic value of core biopsies and ultrasound examinations, the prevalence of complications, and the applicability of the diagnostic tools in the evaluation of the graft status and viability were analyzed. In the early postoperative period, graft rupture occurred more frequently after biopsy than in the late period (7.4% vs 0.82%), this leading graft loss in 18 of 20 cases. The sonographically diagnosed morphologic and ...
Background: Current guidelines for the management of patients with specific low back pain pathology suggest non-surgical intervention as first-line treatment, but there is insufficient evidence to make recommendations of the content in the non-surgical intervention. Opinions regarding the dose of non-surgical intervention that should be trialled prior to decision making about surgery intervention vary. The aim of the present study is to investigate if physiotherapy administrated before surgery improves function, pain and health in patients with degenerative lumbar spine disorder scheduled for surgery. The patients are followed over two years. A secondary aim is to study what factors predict short and long term outcomes. Methods: This study is a single blinded, 2-arm, randomized controlled trial with follow-up after the completion of pre-surgery intervention as well as 3, 12 and 24 months post-surgery. The study will recruit men and women, 25 to 80 years of age, scheduled for surgery due to; disc

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether physical, psychological and social recovery within the first 6 weeks following coronary artery bypass surgery varied by age. METHODS: A repeated measures design was used for this study. Data were collected from a convenience sample of three age groups of patients at the following times: prior to hospital discharge and at 1, 3 and 6 weeks after discharge. The three age groups studied were less than 60 years, 60 to 70 years and more than 70 years. Data were collected by interview and mail questionnaires. The initial sample consisted of 258 patients, of whom 184 completed the study. Eleven instruments were used to measure recovery including the Sickness Impact Profile, Beck Depression Inventory, Rosenberg Self-Esteem scale and the Symptom Inventory. RESULTS: No significant differences were found among the age groups for any of the physical, psychological or social recovery measures. Within each age group physical, psychological and ...

All patients received a similar standardized anesthetic, surgical, and multimodal analgesic treatment. The team measured C-reactive protein (CRP) and pulmonary function, pain scores, nausea, and the number of vomiting episodes. They also recorded analgesic and antiemetic requirements. Patients reported their fatigue and pain scores daily, before and during the first postoperative week. They also reported when they resumed work and recreational activities.. The investigators found that dexamethasone significantly reduced postoperative levels of CRP, fatigue, overall pain, and incisional pain during the first 24 postoperative hours. They also found that cumulated overall and visceral pain scores during the first postoperative week were significantly reduced. Dexamethasone also reduced nausea and vomiting on the day of operation. Furthermore, patients in the dexamethasone group resumed recreational activities significantly faster than those in the placebo group.. Dr Thue Bisgaards team concluded, ...
Yesterday I went to the pre-surgery information class at the hospital.

I learned more about the types of vitamins and supplements that are required post-surgery. I know that I can purchase half vanilla and half chocolate of the pre-surgery liquid diet ...
Hi Iz. My Hawkfan name comes from the Seattle Seahawks. I just got home from our thrilling victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Ive had Seahawk season tickets for 30 years, so these victories are very sweet. (Sorry Dallas fans - was TO worth the money??) It was nice to get into this game and my thoughts of my cancer and surgery put into a second area of my thoughts. If the NY Giants win out and the Hawks also, we would have the NFC Championship game here at Qwest field, but Id miss that one since my surgery is two days before.

Doppler ultrasound (DUS) is able to measure parameters of blood flow within vessels of transplanted organs, and vascular complications are associated with abnormal values. We analyzed the findings of 51 consecutive patients who underwent DUS on 2 occasions in the first postoperative week following liver transplantation for cirrhosis to determine the range of values in patients following liver transplantation. Three patients developed early vascular thromboses that were detected by the absence of a Doppler signal. In patients making an uneventful recovery, the arterial velocity tended to increase and the resistive index (RI) to decrease during the first postoperative week. All recipients were shown to have high-velocity segments within the hepatic artery, without an increase in flow resistance. Assessment of the portal vein revealed narrowing at the anastomosis, associated with a segmental doubling of flow velocity, and the mean portal venous flow decreased by approximately 20% in the first postoperative

In our study (1) we observed a reduced incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF) following coronary artery bypass surgery in patients receiving polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). The way these compounds could have determined this result is, at present, only speculative. Indeed, PUFAs have been demonstrated to have a direct anti-arrhythmic effect in different laboratory models, but the importance of a concurrent (or prevalent) anti-inflammatory action cannot be excluded. In fact, PUFAs have anti-inflammatory properties (2), and inflammation, as correctly pointed out by Dr. Korantzopoulos and colleagues can play a fundamental role in postcardiac surgery AF. Actually, the efficacy of an anti-inflammatory therapy in this setting is still not clear owing to conflicting reports. Whereas a single postinduction steroid administration was shown to prevent postoperative AF (3), a similar protocol was found ineffective in other hands (4). The debate on this subject is thus still open, but unfortunately a ...
IN BRIEF This study examined whether elevated A1C in patients with diabetes is associated with a higher incidence of postoperative infections and other complications. Researchers followed 50 noncardiac surgical patients for 7 postoperative days. Half of the patients had an A1C ,7% and the other half had an A1C ≥7%. The two groups were otherwise comparable except that the higher-A1C group had significantly higher pre-induction and postoperative blood glucose levels, with wider variability in the first 24 hours after surgery. During the first postoperative week, 11 patients developed complications, of whom 10 were in the higher-A1C group. Elevated A1C, unlike a single preoperative blood glucose value, may predict difficult postoperative glucose control and postsurgical complications. ...

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecules storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters. ...

I think there might be another alternative, if they havent mentioned it. I do not, of course, know WHY your lung function test was horrible but if you HAVE the surgery they will most likely give you some toys to use to rebuild your breathing capacity. I wonder why you couldnt use them pre-surgery to get yourself in shape? I am aware that it is not so simplistic as that, that it probably would not have an immediate effect, but between that sort of exercise, daily walks if possible, and cessation of smoking and/or drinking if they are part of your current regimen, maybe you could get there.. I cannot figure out from your post what the doctor meant when he said the surgery would be iffy. I was told when I was going through pre-op instructions with my doc that there was a one in 100 chance that I would die and I thought THAT iffy, personally, until my wife advised that a previous surgery for head/neck cancer was MUCH more dangerous :)..

Thursday, August 16, 2012 Hi, everyone! Hope everyone is having a good day... Things in Cleveland went well today. We arrived, and I was admitted on the surgical unit at 5:30. They got me in my gown and settled and let my sister Pat and her husband, Bill, and Richelle and Ken spend time with me before they took me back.

Ovarian cancer is a disease associated with a high mortality mainly because it currently escapes detection at early stages. Identification of an effective biomarker for early detection would improve survival. This study reports statistically significant differences in LPL levels between preoperative samples of ovarian cancer patients and those of healthy controls. The study also confirms that statistically significant elevations in LPL levels are present in patients with early-stage disease. Thus, the findings support the utility of LPL, especially LPA, as biomarkers for early detection of ovarian cancer. The study is the first to report significant postoperative changes in specific LPL levels. Further study is needed to determine whether some LPLs may return to baseline after successful treatment and/or have utility as biomarkers of recurrence. The study also contributes data toward determination of the best combinations of markers and cutoff values for clinical use.. Although our conclusions ...

Anestesiol. [online]. 2003, vol.53, n.4, pp.440-448. ISSN 0034-7094. BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Pressure controlled ventilation (PCV) has been used as the ventilation mode of choice in coronary artery bypass graft surgery patients who develop severe hypoxemia in the immediate postoperative period. However, there are no evidences showing that pressure controlled ventilation is more effective in reversing postoperative hypoxemia than controlled mandatory ventilation (CMV). This study aimed at comparing the effects of both ventilation modes on systemic oxygenation in cardiac surgery patients who develop hypoxemia characterized by PaO2/FiO2 ratio lower than 200 in the immediate postoperative period.

The total procedure time was significantly longer using NOTES technique, median 121 min (94-155), compared with open surgery, median 22 min (14-27) and laparoscopy, median 37 min (20-45) (p,0.0001). Despite the longer operating time there was a non-significant tendency for shorter recovery time for the NOTES animals. (Time till standing up) Twenty-seven animals survived for four weeks. One animal in each group was euthanized prior to four weeks. All animals gained weight as expected during the 4-week-period with no significant differences. (Mean weight at 4 weeks: 46.3±4.0 kg). However, during the first postoperative week only animals in the NOTES group showed a significant weight gain p=0.007 not found in the other two groups. There was no difference in CRP-levels pre- and post-operatively. However, on post-operative day 1 CRP was significantly lower in the NOTES group compared with the open and laparoscopic groups (mean 0.72 ± 0.22, mean 0.98±0.26 and 0.97±0,20 respectively, p=0.048). On ...
A large number of elective surgical patients in Sweden and elsewhere have their surgical procedure performed in a day surgery context. The surgical care event, with its postoperative surveillance, is brief at the surgery unit and patients are discharged home with the intention that they should manage postoperative recovery mainly themselves. However, several patients attest to being in an exposed situation when assuming responsibility for recovery at home. The overall aim of this thesis was to attain comprehensive knowledge of postoperative recovery following day surgery from a patient perspective.. A questionnaire, the Post-discharge Surgical Recovery scale, was translated into Swedish and evaluated regarding its psychometric properties in a Swedish context. A sample of 607 day surgery patients who had undergone orthopaedic, general or gynaecological surgery self-rated their recovery at postoperative Days 1, 7 and 14 using the Post-discharge Surgical Recovery scale and the Quality of ...
Information technology has transformed the way healthcare is conducted. There is a deluge of patient data dispersed in different systems that are commonly not interoperable. As a result, access to patient data has become a major bottleneck for healthcare professionals that struggle to find the relevant information in a timely way and without missing critical clinical information. We implemented PreOptique, a novel hybrid semantic and text-based system that was commissioned by a large hospital in Norway for providing integrated access to patient health records scattered over several databases and document repositories. We use ontology-based data access (OBDA) for the seamless integration of the structured databases at the hospital through the Optique platform. We employ text analysis techniques to extract vital sign measures and clinical findings from patient documents. PreOptique was developed and deployed at the hospital. This solution demonstrates how OBDA technology can provide integrated data access

Red blood cell survival was determined in patients with aortic valvular disease, postoperative patients with aortic valvular ball-valve prostheses and postoperative patients with multiple ball-valve prostheses. The red blood cell survival was reduced in the majority of patients in each group when compared with the red blood cell survival from a normal control group.. A detailed analysis of the survival curves suggested that in many patients there was more than one population of red blood cells. The first population displayed rapid random destruction. This population was not present in normal persons in the control group. The second population showed the usual decline in radioactivity due to random destruction and loss of the red cell label due to elution. The shortened red blood cell survival in some patients was due to a large percentage of the first population of randomly destroyed red blood cells, in other patients to an accelerated rate of destruction of the usual single population of cells ...
From 40 patients (52.5%men, the mean(SD) age: 26.7 (4.13) years), 40, 40, 17.5 and 2.5% of participants had severe, moderate, mild and no pain at the 1st post-operative day, respectively. Whereas, at the fourth post-operative day no patient reported severe pain. The mean of pain was higher at the first v.s forth post-operative day(5.77 (2.57) vs. 1.73 (1.72), P< 0.001). We observed significant correlation between anxiety trait scoring and pain scoring at the 1st post-operative day(r=0.402, p=0.01). Also, there was a significant correlation between cooperation of patient and pain(r=-0.331, p=0.037). Furthermore, no differences were found between pain and other factors ...
Of a total of 26 patients included in the study, 5 underwent pneumonectomy, while the rest underwent lobectomy. Left and right pneumonectomy was performed in 38 and 62% of the patients respectively. None of the patients had right ventricular (RV) dilation or dysfunction on preoperative echocardiograms. Postoperatively, mean LV ejection fraction (LVEF) was 52 (±7.5) %. Mean RV strain in immediate postoperative period (day 2) was -15.1% (reduction of more than 20%). None of the patients progressed to RV failure or had mortality. Estimated RV systolic pressure was 41 (±20) mm Hg. The differences in RV echocardiographic parameters were significantly different pre- and postsurgery. The RV function decreased significantly on POD 2, which improved slightly thereafter. Extent of resection and side of resection did not make a difference in the RV functions. ...
Research is currently being undertaken to expand the window of efficiency for medical treatment through pre-symptomatic diagnosis. This is achieved through an observational clinical study. Blood is taken from consenting elective surgery patients from pre-surgery to treatment end. Some of these patients go on to develop sepsis (3.8%) and the majority recover without developing sepsis. Blood is taken daily. The diagnosis of sepsis has a level of variation between clinicians and hospitals and consensus is reached via a clinical advisory panel where the level of disagreement is analysed. The bloods are stored and then shipped to a laboratory where the RNA or transcriptomic signature is measured by microarray and quantitative methods. The data is retrieved, pre-processed, normalised and undergoes statistical modelling. This then predicts when a patient is likely to go on to develop sepsis or not ...

Ah, the joys of parenting, right? To tell the truth, in some ways its a relief to be dealing with such typical parenting struggles. After the stress and worry of our lives pre-surgery, life became pretty euphoric for a while. It seemed that the typical early parenting woes and the difficult transition didnt really apply to me. Because the initial worry made me feel so apart and so atypical, and later, the intense joy and high from suddenly having a healthy baby made me so happy. I just couldnt relate to other parents who were worried about what seemed to be mundane day-to-day things ...

The team secured a significant damages award for a woman who, at the age of 52 had a laparoscopic sacrocopopexy for urinary symptoms.

  • Cardiac complications are by far the most frequent cause of 30-day postoperative mortality. (
  • The risks of complications in the postoperative period are not dependent only on the extreme factors of the operating injury, but also on the nature of the disorders occur after surgery. (
  • Prevention of complications that may develop in the postoperative the period of life support systems is largely determined by the treatment of comorbidities. (
