Peripheral hepatojejunostomy as palliative treatment for irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum. (1/3544)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the concept of surgical decompression of the biliary tree by peripheral hepatojejunostomy for palliative treatment of jaundice in patients with irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Jaundice, pruritus, and recurrent cholangitis are major clinical complications in patients with obstructive cholestasis resulting from malignant tumors of the liver hilum. Methods for palliative treatment include endoscopic stenting, percutaneous transhepatic drainage, and surgical decompression. The palliative treatment of choice should be safe, effective, and comfortable for the patient. METHODS: In a retrospective study, surgical technique, perioperative complications, and efficacy of treatment were analyzed for 56 patients who had received a peripheral hepatojejunostomy between 1982 and 1997. Laparotomy in all of these patients had been performed as an attempt for curative resection. RESULTS: Hepatojejunostomy was exclusively palliative in 50 patients and was used for bridging to resection or transplantation in 7. Anastomosis was bilateral in 36 patients and unilateral in 20. The 1-month mortality in the study group was 9%; median survival was 6 months. In patients surviving >1 month, a marked and persistent decrease in cholestasis was achieved in 87%, although complete return to normal was rare. Among the patients with a marked decrease in cholestasis, 72% had no or only mild clinical symptoms such as fever or jaundice. CONCLUSIONS: Peripheral hepatojejunostomy is a feasible and reasonably effective palliative treatment for patients with irresectable tumors of the liver hilum. In patients undergoing exploratory laparotomy for attempted curative resection, this procedure frequently leads to persistent-although rarely complete-decompression of the biliary tree.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of positron emission tomography with 2-fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (PET-FDG) in the preoperative staging (N and M staging) of patients with lung cancer. The authors wanted to compare the efficacy of PET scanning with currently used computed tomography (CT) scanning. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Results of whole-body PET-FDG imaging and CT scans were compared with histologic findings for the presence or absence of lymph node disease or metastatic sites. Sampling of mediastinal lymph nodes was performed using mediastinoscopy or thoracotomy. RESULTS: PET-FDG imaging was significantly more sensitive, specific, and accurate for detecting N disease than CT. PET changed N staging in 35% and M staging in 11% of patients. CT scans helped in accurate anatomic localization of 6/57 PET lymph node abnormalities. CONCLUSION: PET-FDG is a reliable method for preoperative staging of patients with lung cancer and would help to optimize management of these patients. Accurate lymph node staging of lung cancer may be ideally performed by simultaneous review of PET and CT scans.  (+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. (3/3544)

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)

Measured versus predicted oxygen consumption in children with congenital heart disease. (4/3544)

OBJECTIVE: To compare measured and predicted oxygen consumption (VO2) in children with congenital heart disease. DESIGN: Retrospective study. SETTING: The cardiac catheterisation laboratory in a university hospital. PATIENTS: 125 children undergoing preoperative cardiac catheterisation. INTERVENTIONS: VO2 was measured using indirect calorimetry; the predicted values were calculated from regression equations published by Lindahl, Wessel et al, and Lundell et al. Stepwise linear regression and analysis of variance were used to evaluate the influence of age, sex, weight, height, cardiac malformation, and heart failure on the bias and precision of predicted VO2. An artificial neural network was trained and used to produce an estimate of VO2 employing the same variables. The various estimates for VO2 were evaluated by calculating their bias and precision values. RESULTS: Lindahl's equation produced the highest precision (+/- 42%) of the regression based estimates. The corresponding average bias of the predicted VO2 was 3% (range -66% to 43%). When VO2 was predicted according to regression equations by Wessel and Lundell, the bias and precision were 0% and +/- 44%, and -16% and +/- 51%, respectively. The neural network predicted VO2 from variables included in the regression equations with a bias of 6% and precision +/- 29%; addition of further variables failed to improve this estimate. CONCLUSIONS: Both regression based and artificial intelligence based techniques were inaccurate for predicting preoperative VO2 in patients with congenital heart disease. Measurement of VO2 is necessary in the preoperative evaluation of these patients.  (+info)

How can videolaparoscopy be used in a peritoneal dialysis programme? (5/3544)

BACKGROUND: Recently videolaparoscopy is considered to have a vaster use in surgery due to the undeniable benefits such as low operatory traumatism, quick recovery of canalization, a short stay in the hospital and minor scarring. METHODS: Forty patients were treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD); 15 videolaparoscopic procedures were performed on 13 patients before starting PD and two during the course of PD. The videolaparoscopy procedure was started by inducing pneumoperitoneum after initiation of general anaesthesia through endotracheal intubation. RESULTS: Peritoneal catheter placement was carried out in 11 ESRD patients showing abdominal scars due to previous laparotomies; their abdominal condition precluded safe PC placement using conventional non-laparoscopic procedures with local anaesthesia. Release of adhesions was performed only in two patients. Videolaparoscopy was also used in three patients for elective cholecystectomy; 2/3 underwent concomitant PC insertion. One patient was submitted to cholecystectomy during the course of CAPD; following the procedure we left the peritoneum dry overnight and then we started temporary IPD, using small volumes, avoiding haemodialysis (HD). Regular CAPD was resumed 6 days later. Finally, videolaparoscopy was also used for diagnostic purpose i.e. in one 59-year-old man patient who had a peritoneal catheter obstruction. Repeated rescue attempts using urokinase solution to irrigate the peritoneal catheter had been used in vain attempts prior to the procedure. CONCLUSIONS: Videolaparoscopy proves to be a useful tool in a PD programme. Firstly, it may be used as a technique for catheter implantation, not as a routine procedure but in patients with extensive abdominal scars due to previous laparotomy, i.e. at risk for accidental viscera perforation due to the possibility of adhesions between intestinal loops and parietal peritoneum. Secondly, videolaparoscopy used for abdominal surgery allows the resumption of PD immediately after surgical procedure and thus avoiding HD. Videolaparoscopy is fundamental for diagnosis and rescue of catheter dysfunction and has an integral role in the successful management of these patients in extending catheter function and permitting safe replacement of peritoneal catheter if it becomes necessary. Along with the undeniable advantages, remains the disadvantages that it must be carried out by an expert surgeon in an operating theatre while the patient is under general anaesthesia.  (+info)

Hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma: toward zero hospital deaths. (6/3544)

OBJECTIVE: The authors report on the surgical techniques and protocol for perioperative care that have yielded a zero hospital mortality rate in 110 consecutive patients undergoing hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The hepatectomy results are analyzed with the aim of further reducing the postoperative morbidity rate. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: In recent years, hepatectomy has been performed with a mortality rate of <10% in patients with HCC, but a zero hospital mortality rate in a large patient series has never been reported. At Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong, the surgical techniques and perioperative management in hepatectomy for HCC have evolved yearly into a final standardized protocol that reduced the hospital mortality rate from 28% in 1989 to 0% in 1996 and 1997. METHODS: Surgical techniques were designed to reduce intraoperative blood loss, blood transfusion, and ischemic injury to the liver remnant in hepatectomy. Postoperative care was focused on preservation and promotion of liver function by providing adequate tissue oxygenation and immediate postoperative nutritional support that consisted of branched-chain amino acid-enriched solution, low-dose dextrose, medium-chain triglycerides, and phosphate. The pre-, intra-, and postoperative data were collected prospectively and analyzed each year to assess the influence of the evolving surgical techniques and perioperative care on outcome. RESULTS: Of 330 patients undergoing hepatectomy for HCC, underlying cirrhosis and chronic hepatitis were present in 161 (49%) and 108 (33%) patients, respectively. There were no significant changes in the patient characteristics throughout the 9-year period, but there were significant reductions in intraoperative blood loss and blood transfusion requirements. From 1994 to 1997, the median blood transfusion requirement was 0 ml, and 64% of the patients did not require a blood transfusion. The postoperative morbidity rate remained the same throughout the study period. Complications in the patients operated on during 1996 and 1997 were primarily wound infections; the potentially fatal complications seen in the early years, such as subphrenic sepsis, biliary leakage, and hepatic coma, were absent. By univariate analysis, the volume of blood loss, volume of blood transfusions, and operation time were correlated positively with postoperative morbidity rates in 1996 and 1997. Stepwise logistic regression analysis revealed that the operation time was the only parameter that correlated significantly with the postoperative morbidity rate. CONCLUSION: With appropriate surgical techniques and perioperative management to preserve function of the liver remnant, hepatectomy for HCC can be performed without hospital deaths. To improve surgical outcome further, strategies to reduce the operation time are being investigated.  (+info)

Hemangioblastoma mimicking tentorial meningioma: preoperative embolization of the meningeal arterial blood supply--case report. (7/3544)

A 72-year-old male presented with a primary hemangioblastoma of the posterior fossa with unusual dural attachment and meningeal arterial blood supply from the external carotid artery and marginal tentorial artery. Preoperative embolization facilitated complete resection of the tumor with no resultant neurological deficit. Hemangioblastoma must be included in the differential diagnosis of tumors with dural involvement. Preoperative embolization is very useful in such tumors.  (+info)

Predictive value of perioperative gastric acid tests. (8/3544)

Preoperative acid studies and early postoperative insulin tests in 275 patients undergoing various forms of vagotomy have been related to recurrent ulceration. Follow-up time has been from two to nine years, mean 4-3 years. Recurrence is directly related to basal acidity in both tests but is not related to stimulated acid levels preoperatively. In the insulin tests higher levels of acidity after insulin are associated with a higher incidence of recurrence. When positive, Hollander's and multiple criteria are both associated with a higher recurrence rate.  (+info)

Controversy: whether or not preoperative cardiac testing can ever be justified. It is clear that preoperative testing can stratify patients with regards to risk [Landesberg G et al. Circulation 108: 177, 2003], however in order for cardiac testing to be defensible, anticipated management changes (i.e. revascularization) must improve outcomes.. Data Supporting Preoperative Cardiac Testing:. There are no prospective studies in support of preoperative cardiac testing. The most widely cited retrospective study comes from Landesberg et al., who retrospectively reviewed the perioperative course of 502 patients undergoing major vascular surgery, and found that mortality was lower in those who had moderate-severe reversible ischemia on thallium scanning and underwent revascularization (n = 74) than those who did not (n = 74, OR 0.52, p = 0.018) [Landesberg G et al.

Panigrahy and colleagues, including Charles N. Serhan, PhD, DSc, director of the Center of Experimental Therapeutics and a member of the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Brigham and Womens Hospital, hypothesised that an early blockade of the inflammatory cascade and/or accelerating the resolution of inflammation could overcome the tumour-promoting unintended consequences of cancer surgery.. Using a well-established animal model, the scientists found that preoperative but not postoperative administration of a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug called ketorolac eliminated the spread of cancer cells in multiple tumour-resection models, resulting in significantly prolonged survival.. The team also showed that preoperative administration of resolvins - naturally occurring anti-inflammatory factors produced by the human body first discovered by Serhan and colleagues at Brigham and Womens Hospital in 2002 - produced the same result.. Moreover, they found that ...

All patients listed for surgery require full preoperative assessment. There are two essential aims of the preoperative assessment. Firstly, the anaesthetist must determine the most appropriate anaesthetic technique dependent on the patients medical condition, the planned surgery and their own individual preferences. Secondly the anaesthetist must determine the appropriate timing of the anaesthetic/surgery. Surgery may be considered elective, urgent and emergent. Where there is coexisting illness, every opportunity must be taken to improve the patients condition prior to surgery Elective should be delayed until the patient is fully optimised. The anaesthetist should not be intimidated into proceeding with anaesthesia if they have doubts. Urgent surgery can usually be delayed until the anaesthetist has had the opportunity to fully assess the patient and commenced optimisation. Urgent surgery does not dictate immediate surgery and anaesthesia. There is sufficient time to investigate and correct ...

The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate the preoperative management of pain from the perspectives of a literature overview, emergency medical service pain management, an intervention with a fascia iliaca compartment block and the association between cognitive status and the treatment of pain. Paper 1 is an integrative review of the literature on emergency care in patients with hip fractures or suspected hip fractures. Pain is a major problem for patients suffering a hip fracture when waiting for surgery and it is challenging for health care to provide sufficient pain relief. Listening to the patients narrative and the mandatory use of pain scales and pain documentation are necessary to deepen our understanding of individual patients needs. Paper 2 is a prospective observational study that explored the prehospital pain levels in 1,426 patients with suspected hip fractures. Furthermore, this study evaluated prehospital pain management. At the site of the injury, patients with hip ...
The following summary comes from Emanuele F. Kauffmann, MD and colleagues, and was recently published in Surgical Endoscopy in January 2019.. Link to article: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00464-018-6301-2. Over the recent decades, improvements in preoperative management and introduction of new surgical techniques has seen a substantially declined the morbidity (rate of complications) associated with pancreatic surgery. Among these, the most intriguing innovations has been the introduction of the surgical robot as a tool to assist the surgeon. When using this platform, surgeons may enjoy increased control, a 3-D view of the abdomen, and greater magnification of the surgical field, while minimizing the length of required incisions. In this article, the authors sought to evaluate the outcomes of robotic pancreatic oduodenectomy (also known as the Whipple procedure) as compared to its classic open counterpart. The authors chose to evaluate immediate oncological outcomes including ...
The results suggest that perhaps routine preop echo should be part of the preop workup before vascular surgery.

Preoperative fasting duration was lower for liquids. Still, a full 20% of children had nothing to drink for more than 12 hours before their surgeries, and another 16% went without clear liquids for six to 12 hours.. Why Prolong Fasting?. After analysis of several potential factors behind the prolonged preoperative fasting times, the strongest correlation was found with the time of surgery. Fasting duration increased steadily throughout the day, practically doubling from around 10 hours at 8 a.m., to 20 hours or more by late afternoon, the study found.. Preoperative fasting also increased steadily, although less dramatically, with advancing age of the child.. Infants less than 1 year old went, on average, without liquids for 3.6 hours and without solids for 9.6 hours. Those figures rose to 4.4 hours for liquids and 13.6 hours for solids among children aged 1 to 5 years. Whereas preoperative fasting times for liquids generally stayed the same among older children, fasting time for solids rose to ...

ABSTRACT Background: Preoperative fasting for many years has been a traditional method of reducing the risk of aspiration while the patient is under general anesthesia, and eliminating the risk of postoperative nausea and vomiting. Studies indicate that despite guidelines regarding preoperative fasting, many patients fast longer than necessary. This can cause damage and discomfort for patients including: thirst, headache, nausea, weakness and fatigue.. Aim: The aim of the current study was to investigate patients experience of fasting more than 12 hours before emergency surgery.. Method: The study had a qualitative approach. In total, 12 patients who underwent emergency surgery were included. Data was collected through a semi-structured interview, using open-ended questions following an interview guide. Collected data were analyzed using manifest content analysis according to Graneheim and Lundman.. Result: Analyzes resulted in four categories: Preoperative information, experience of fasting, ...

UNLABELLED The erythropoietic capacity for preoperative autologous blood donation (ECPABD) shows marked inter individual variability. This study was performed to evaluate factors useful to predict individual ECPABD from data available before the first donation. The subjects consisted of 74 adult patients who received autologous blood donation, with a mean of 61 +/- 12.8 yr (SD). We classified the patients into four groups using our criteria for evaluating the ECPABD and investigated the relationships among age, disease, pre-platelet count, and the rate of platelet increase. RESULTS (1) Advanced age and the status of disease were not distinctly correlated with low ECPABD. (2) Patients with a high pre-platelet levels had a low ECPABD regardless of the haemoglobin. (3) Patients in which the platelet count increased in accordance with the level of collection exhibited low pre-platelet counts and high ECPABD. CONCLUSION In patients with high pre-platelet levels, we reduced the amount collected,

We compared ferucarbotran-enhanced MRI with triple-phase MDCT for the preoperative detection of hepatocellular carcinoma. SUBJECTS AND METHODS. Seventy-three consecutive patients with 121 hepatocellular carcinomas underwent ferucarbotran-enhanced MRI, including a dynamic study, and triple-phase MDCT before hepatic resection. The diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma was confirmed in all patients by means of pathologic examination after surgical resection. Three experienced radiologists independently reviewed the MR and CT images on a segment-by-segment basis. The accuracy of these techniques for the detection of hepatocellular carcinoma was assessed by conducting a ...
Quality of life in preoperative patients with sacroiliac joint dysfunction is at least as depressed as in other lumbar spinal conditions Daniel Joseph Cher, W Carlton RecklingSI-BONE, Inc., San Jose, CA, USABackground: Pain from the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is an under-recognized cause of low back pain. The degree to which SIJ pain decreases quality of life has not been directly compared to other more familiar conditions of the lumbar spine.Methods: Multivariate regression analysis of individual patient data from two prospective multicenter clinical trials of SIJ fusion and three prospective multicenter clinical trials of surgical treatments for degenerative lumbar spine conditions.Results: Controlling for baseline demographic parameters as well as a validated disability score, quality of life scores (EuroQOL 5-D and SF-36) were, in most cases, lower in the SIJ cohorts compared to the three other spine surgery cohorts.Conclusion: Patients with SIJ dysfunction considering surgery have decrements in quality
On February 6, 2012, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Padma Jain committed an act of professional misconduct, in that she failed to maintain the standard of practice of the profession in her care and treatment of 27 cosmetic surgical patients between 2001 and 2008 in the following ways: Her pre-operative care was substandard: Her pre-operative evaluation of abdominoplasty patients was consistently minimal with no record of the presence of hernia, amount of laxity or surgical plan; Her pre-operative evaluation of blepharoplasty was consistently inadequate with no inquiry about eye history and inadequate examination of the lids recorded; Her pre-operative evaluation of breast augmentation was minimal without standard comments on nipple position; Liposuction was performed on patients with relative contraindications for this type of surgery, including one patient with lupus; The pre-operative evaluation for breast reduction and gynecomastia was insufficient in that nipple position was not ...

Preoperative assessment and risk stratification is an integral part of anesthetic care which is one of the various duties of an anesthesiologist. Laboratory investigation is an important element in the process of preoperative assessment and risk stratification. Unfortunately, despite of having negative recommendations for routine preoperative testing for more than a decade, it still remains a tradition in health care delivery for surgical patients[1,2]. The health care cost is becoming an increasing burden for every nation, especially for developing and underdeveloped countries. Studies conducted on cost savings have shown that 63% of the total cost of the tests was due to unnecessary tests[3,4]. Preoperative testing is estimated to cost US$ 18 billion annually in United Sates alone[5].. Efforts have been made by different health care societies and authorities to guide the preoperative testing before elective surgeries. American Society of Anaesthesiologists and the National Institute of Health ...
Preoperative radiation therapy has shown to be of benefit for the prevention of local recurrence rates in rectal cancer patients (11, 12). Long-course preoperative chemoradiotherapy is of benefit in stage T3/T4 rectal cancer patients, and long-course preoperative chemoradiation is the standard of care in the United States (27). However, considering the extensive morbidity of preoperative radiation therapy (13-15), it is of great importance to identify patients with a low risk of local recurrence in which radiation therapy is redundant. With this intention, the current study was done in patients with stage III rectal cancer, as these patients are at the highest risk for local recurrence (12). Our results show that biochemical detection of caspase-3 levels can be used as a marker to identify patients with a very high probability for local cure with surgery alone.. To select patients who can be refrained from preoperative radiation therapy, a marker should provide accurate prediction of clinical ...
The study protocol was approved by the institutional review board. From a prospectively collected database of all patients undergoing colorectal surgery in our department, 46 consecutive patients were selected who underwent laparoscopic surgery after preoperative chemoradiation for rectal cancer from January 2009 to June 2014. All patients were diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in the rectum with tumors ,15 cm from the anal verge. Preoperative assessment included digital rectal examination, colonoscopy with biopsy, rectal ultrasound, abdominopelvic computed tomography (CT), chest x-ray, and laboratory data including complete blood cell count, biochemical profiles, serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and cancer antigen (CA 19-9).. Patients with CTs showing locally advanced tumor (i.e., penetrating through the rectal wall, T3), and/or tumor with lymph node involvement without evidence of distant metastasis were given the option of preoperative chemoradiation therapy. As preoperative chemoradiation ...
The initial literature search identified 7,453 studies. We excluded 1,931 duplicates and excluded 5,504 studies by title screening because they did not meet the eligibility criteria. Eighteen randomized controlled trials were selected for full-text review, and 15 papers were discarded; 6 trials compared surgery alone and surgery plus postoperative radiation, 2 compared surgery alone and preoperative longcourse radiation plus surgery, 6 compared surgery alone and preoperative short-course radiation and surgery, and one was long-term results of a previous reported trial. Three randomized trials comparing preoperative CRT with postoperative CRT in resectable stage II-III rectal cancer were finally identified; Park et al. [9] in 2011, Roh et al. [10] in 2009, and Sauer et al. [5] in 2004 (Fig. 1). All patients in both preoperative and postoperative arms received conventionally fractionated radiotherapy of 50-54 Gy with 1.8-2 Gy per fraction for 5-6 weeks. Concurrent chemotherapy of intravenous ...
Patients with unresectable primary rectal cancer or with unresectable local recurrence without distant metastases are randomly allocated to control or experimental arm. The preoperative treatment in the control arm is conventionally fractionated chemoradiation with 50.4 Gy total dose in 28 fractions of 1.8 Gy over 5.5 weeks simultaneously with 5-Fu, leucovorin and oxaliplatin. Experimental group receive 25 Gy in 5 fractions of 5 Gy over 5 days and after one week interval - consolidating chemotherapy of 3 courses of FOLFOX4. Surgery should be curried out 10-11 weeks from beginning of radiation and at least 4 weeks from the last dose of fluorouracil or radiation. The study hypothesis is that the short-course preoperative radiotherapy with consolidating chemotherapy produce at least 10% increase of the rate of R0 resection compared to preoperative chemoradiation ...
Preoperative anaemia and low exertional oxygen uptake are both associated with greater postoperative morbidity and mortality. This study reports the association among haemoglobin concentration ([Hb]), peak oxygen uptake ( peak) and anaerobic threshold (AT) in elective surgical patients. Between 1999 and 2011, preoperative [Hb] and cardiopulmonary exercise tests were recorded in 1,777 preoperative patients in four hospitals. The associations between [Hb], peak and AT were analysed by linear regression and covariance. In 436 (24.5%) patients, [Hb] was |12 g dl-1 and, in 83 of these, |10 g dl-1. Both AT and
No clear MRI screening guidelines exist for patients with idiopathic scoliosis. Recommended indications for MRI in the literature include pain, rapid progression, left thoracic deformity, neurologic disorder [1], early onset [910], double thoracic curvature [1112], and male sex [13]. Several studies have reported the incidence of intracanal impairments in patients with idiopathic scoliosis, some of which are briefly cited below.. Gupta et al. [14] reported that 18% to 20% of 98 patients with idiopathic scoliosis had neuroaxial problems. However, the effects of age, sex, and type of curve were not assessed. Ouellet et al. [15] studied 93 patients but did not report the incidence neuroaxial abnormalities; however, a relationship was reported between neuroaxial abnormalities, male sex, and a left curve, but not with age.. Nakahara et al. [16] reported that 3.8% of 472 patients had neuroaxial abnormalities, which was directly related to factors, such as early onset ,11 years of age, male sex, ...
The aim of this study was to examine racial differences in long-term mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), stratified by preoperative use of inotropic agents. Black and white patients who required preoperative inotropic support prior to undergoing CABG procedures between 1992 and 2011 were compared. Mortality probabilities were computed using the Kaplan-Meier product-limit method. Hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were computed using a Cox regression model. A total of 15,765 patients underwent CABG, of whom 211 received preoperative inotropic agents within 48 hours of surgery. Long-term mortality differed by race (black versus white) among preoperative inotropic category (inotropes: adjusted HR = 1.6, 95% CI = 1.009-2.4; no inotropes: adjusted HR = 1.15, 95% CI = 1.08-1.2; Pinteraction < 0.0001). Our study identified an independent preoperative risk-factor for long-term mortality among blacks receiving CABG. This outcome provides information that may be

BACKGROUND Although tumor size affects survival of patients with lower-grade glioma, a prognostic effect on patients with glioblastoma remains to be established. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of 61 patients using volumetric data of tumor compartments of 61 patients obtained by preoperative magnetic resonance images using the visual ABC/2 method. Preoperative enhancing, nonenhancing, necrosis, and edema volume, the preoperative tumor area (TA) as a product of the 2 largest tumor diameters perpendicular to each other on axial T1-weighted postcontrast images, as well as postoperative enhancing residual volumes, were measured. Multivariable Cox proportional hazard models were used to associate these parameters with overall survival, adjusting for potential confounders. RESULTS The median preoperative enhancing tumor volume was 18.2 mL (interquartile range, 8.2-41.7 mL); the median remnant tumor volume was 1.3% (interquartile range, 0.0%-42.9%). During follow-up, 59 patients (92%) ...
Preoperative testing (e.g., chest radiography, electrocardiography, laboratory testing, urinalysis) is often performed before surgical procedures. These investigations can be helpful to stratify risk, direct anesthetic choices, and guide postoperative management, but often are obtained because of protocol rather than medical necessity. The decision to order preoperative tests should be guided by the patients clinical history, comorbidities, and physical examination findings. Patients with signs or symptoms of active cardiovascular disease should be evaluated with appropriate testing, regardless of their preoperative status. Electrocardiography is recommended for patients undergoing high-risk surgery and those undergoing intermediate-risk surgery who have additional risk factors. Patients undergoing low-risk surgery do not require electrocardiography. Chest radiography is reasonable for patients at risk of postoperative pulmonary complications if the results would change perioperative management.

Surgical preoperative planning software is used for the planning the orthopedic surgery of the patient. Surgical preoperative planning software helps the surgeon to find out the best possible way of surgery. This software is usually used for planning the orthopedic surgery such as hip, knee or joint reconstruction. This software is also used for the fracture management and deformity correction of the bones. Surgical preoperative planning software manages the orthopedic surgery which makes surgeon to work on their plans efficiently. This software creates the digitally accurate data which can be easily analyzed by the surgeon prior to surgery. Surgical preoperative planning software will lead to the rise of the success rate of orthopedic surgery. The data generated by surgical preoperative planning software is stored on cloud server which enables the easy access of the patient data for the surgeon. Surgical preoperative planning software also helps the surgeon to construct 3D digital models or ...

Ive woken early. Lying here I feel an unfamiliar hollow pressure in my gut. What is this? Fear? Anxiety? Tension? Tense apprehension seems to fit. Im lying here in the early hours of the morning, a hollow tense apprehension in my belly. And it isnt surprising. Pretty normal in fact as I move closer & closer to major surgery. Consciously. By my own decision. On this journey, travelling down the kidney donation river, I can hear the roar of the approaching rapids. Surgery soon. Its a pretty standard, basic, healthy response to tense a bit as I move towards the crux, possibly the most intense section of this donation river. And I dont have to tighten the rest of my body around the belly apprehension. I can let go, loosen in my arms, my face. Its OK. Nothing to do right now. I can let go ... move into not doing, not holding on. Letting go and softening in my body generally. And the hollow gut tightness can just be. I can almost cradle it ... with kindness.
