Effects of soybean oil emulsion and eicosapentaenoic acid on stress response and immune function after a severely stressful operation. (1/1709)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of soybean oil emulsion and oral or enteral administration of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) on stress response, cytokine production, protein metabolism, and immune function after surgery for esophageal cancer. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: It has been reported that safflower oil, rich in n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-6 PUFA), affects the survival rate of septic animals and decreases the immune function. It has also been reported that the administration of fish oil, in contrast, reduces these stress responses and stress-induced immunosuppression. In humans, the effects of soybean oil emulsion and the administration of EPA on stress response and immune function after surgery have not been established. METHODS: Patients who underwent esophagectomy with thoracotomy were divided into three groups. Seven patients were fed by total parenteral nutrition (TPN) with soybean oil emulsion, which accounted for 20% of total calories. Seven patients were given oral or enteral administration of 1.8 g/day EPA, in addition to TPN with soybean oil emulsion. Nine patients served as the control group; these patients received fat-free TPN. Serum interleukin-6 (IL-6), C-reactive protein, concanavalin A (con A)- or phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-stimulated lymphocyte proliferation, natural killer cell activity, and stress hormones were measured. RESULTS: The postoperative level of serum IL-6 was significantly higher in the group receiving soybean oil emulsion than in the fat-free group. Oral or enteral supplementation of EPA with soybean oil emulsion significantly reduced the level of serum IL-6 compared with the patients receiving soybean oil emulsion. Con A- or PHA-stimulated lymphocyte proliferation decreased significantly on postoperative day 7 in all groups of patients. The supplementation of EPA with soybean oil emulsion significantly improved the lymphocyte proliferation and natural killer cell activity on postoperative day 21 compared with the group receiving soybean oil emulsion. CONCLUSIONS: Soybean oil emulsion amplifies, and the supplementation of EPA reduces, the stress response and stress-induced immunosuppression.  (+info)

Evidence of improving survival of patients with rectal cancer in france: a population based study. (2/1709)

BACKGROUND: Over the past 20 years there have been many changes in the management of rectal cancer. Their impact on the overall population is not well known. AIMS: To determine trends in management and prognosis of rectal cancer in two French regions. SUBJECTS: 1978 patients with a rectal carcinoma diagnosed between 1978 and 1993. METHODS: Time trends in treatment, stage at diagnosis, operative mortality, and survival were studied on a four year basis. A non-conditional logistic regression was performed to obtain an odds ratio for each period adjusted for the other variables. To estimate the independent effect of the period a multivariate relative survival analysis was performed. RESULTS: Over the 16 year period resection rates increased from 66.0% to 80.1%; the increase was particularly noticeable for sphincter saving procedures (+30.6% per four years, p=0.03). The percentage of patients receiving adjuvant radiotherapy increased from 24.0% to 40.0% (p=0.02). The proportion of patients with Dukes' type A cancer increased from 17. 7% to 30.6% with a corresponding decrease in those with more advanced disease. Operative mortality decreased by 31.1% per four years (p=0.03). All these improvements have resulted in a dramatic increase in relative survival (from 35.4% for the 1978-1981 period to 57.0% for the 1985-1989 period). CONCLUSIONS: Substantial advances in the management of rectal cancer have been achieved, but there is evidence that further improvements can be made in order to increase survival.  (+info)

Double gallbladder originating from left hepatic duct: a case report and review of literature. (3/1709)

BACKGROUND: Double gallbladder is a rare anomaly of the biliary tract. Double gallbladder arising from the left hepatic duct was previously reported only once in the literature. CASE REPORT: A case of symptomatic cholelithiasis in a double gallbladder, diagnosed on preoperative ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram (ERCP) is reported. At laparoscopic cholangiography via the accessory gallbladder no accessory cystic duct was visualized. After conversion to open cholecystectomy, the duplicated gallbladder was found to arise directly from the left hepatic duct; it was resected and the duct repaired. CONCLUSIONS: We emphasize that a careful intraoperative cholangiographic evaluation of the accessory gallbladder is mandatory in order to prevent inadvertent injury to bile ducts, since a large variety of ductal abnormality may exist.  (+info)

Surgical options in the management of groin hernias. (4/1709)

Inguinal and femoral hernias are the most common conditions for which primary care physicians refer patients for surgical management. Hernias usually present as swelling accompanied by pain or a dragging sensation in the groin. Most hernias can be diagnosed based on the history and clinical examination, but ultrasonography may be useful in differentiating a hernia from other causes of groin swelling. Surgical repair is usually advised because of the danger of incarceration and strangulation, particularly with femoral hernias. Three major types of open repair are currently used, and laparoscopic techniques are also employed. The choice of technique depends on several factors, including the type of hernia, anesthetic considerations, cost, period of postoperative disability and the surgeon's expertise. Following initial herniorrhaphy, complication and recurrence rates are generally low. Laparoscopic techniques make it possible for patients to return to normal activities more quickly, but they are more costly than open procedures. In addition, they require general anesthesia, and the long-term hernia recurrence rate with these procedures is unknown.  (+info)

Comparison of Payne and Scott operations for morbid obesity. (5/1709)

One hundred five patients were operated upon for morbid obesity using accepted criteria for operation. Forty-five patients with the Payne operation (35 cm of jejunum anastomosed end-to-side to 10 cm of ileum) were compared with 45 patients having the Scott operation (30 cm of jejunum anatomosed end-to-end to 15 cm of ileum with the proximal cut end of ileum vented into the transverse colon). The weight loss in the first two years was similar, although the Scott procedure patients lost slightly more weight. Comparison of the two groups by a new grading system also showed little difference in the two procedures. The Scott procedure takes longer and subjects the patient to an additional anastomosis. Study of a smaller group of patients having the Scott operation with varying lengths of jejunum and ileum indicates that there should not be less than 30 cm of jejunum nor more than 15 cm of ileum left in continuity. The length of jejunum is particularly important in the production of weight loss, and accurate intraoperative measurement of intestinal length is crucial. In the postoperative period the length of functional jejunum and ileum can be determined by upper gastrointestinal barium roentgenograms.  (+info)

Patients' experience of surgical accidents. (6/1709)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the psychological impact of surgical accidents and assess the adequacy of explanations given to the patients involved. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey. SETTING: Subjects were selected from files held Action for Victims of Medical Accidents. PATIENTS: 154 surgical patients who had been injured by their treatment, who considered that their treatment had fallen below acceptable standards. MAIN MEASURES: Adequacy of explanations given to patients and responses to standard questionnaires assessing pain, distress, psychiatric morbidity, and psychosocial adjustment (general health questionnaire, impact of events scale, McGill pain questionnaire, and psychosocial adjustment to illness scale). RESULTS: 101 patients completed the questionnaires (69 women, 32 men; mean age 44 (median 41.5) years. Mean scores on the questionnaires indicated that these injured patients were more distressed than people who had suffered serious accidents or bereavements; their levels of pain were comparable, over a year after surgery, to untreated postoperative pain; and their psychosocial adjustment was considerably worse than in patients with serious illnesses. They were extremely unsatisfied with the explanations given about their accident, which they perceived as lacking in information, unclear, inaccurate, and given unsympathetically. Poor explanations were associated with higher levels of disturbing memories and poorer adjustment. CONCLUSIONS: Surgical accidents have a major adverse psychological impact on patients, and poor communication after the accident may increase patients' distress. IMPLICATIONS: Communication skills in dealing with such patients should be improved to ensure the clear and comprehensive explanations that they need. Many patients will also require psychological treatment to help their recovery.  (+info)

Measuring patient satisfaction: a test of construct validity. (7/1709)

OBJECTIVE: To establish the validity of two patient satisfaction questionnaires (surgery satisfaction questionnaire (SSQ) and consultation satisfaction questionnaire (CSQ)) developed for use in general practice. DESIGN: Prospective study of performance of SSQ and CSQ in patients selected for their predicted levels of satisfaction. SETTING: Avon Family Health Services Authority (FHSA); general practices in Bristol (practice A) and in Cheltenham (practice B). PATIENTS: 400 patients selected by Avon FHSA who had changed practices but not their home address and whose original practice had not changed its services (group 1); 869 randomly selected patients (221 from practice A, 648 from practice B) (group 2). MAIN MEASURES: Median difference in satisfaction scores for each questionnaire between groups 1 and 2 and between subgroups of group 2 patients according to assessed level in continuity of care (< 50%, > or = 50%) in the past 12 consultations. RESULTS: 272 (68.0%) patients in group 1 completed the SSQ and CSQ. 711 (81.2%) patients in group 2 (178/221 (80.5%) in practice A, 533/648(82.3%) in practice B) completed the SSQ and 374(88/106(83.0%), 286/335(85.4%)) completed the CSQ. Both questionnaires classified patients in groups 1 and 2 according to the construct of satisfaction; thus the difference in median scores for every component of satisfaction in each questionnaire was significant and occurred in the direction predicted by the construct. Each questionnaire also discriminated between patients grouped according to their assessed level of continuity of care. CONCLUSION: SSQ and CSQ are valid measures of satisfaction for these types of patients. IMPLICATIONS: Valid measures of patient satisfaction can be developed; untested instruments should no longer be used.  (+info)

To the Editor: In their recent article, Lee et al1 mention that their index, which is derived and validated by a superb methodology, can identify which stable patients undergoing nonurgent major noncardiac surgery are at a higher risk for complications. In fact, the assessment of preoperative cardiac risk is complicated by many interposed problems. In the surgical decision-making process, it is precisely the assessment of all general risks (and not only cardiac risk) that could be of clinical interest, inasmuch as general risk factors can indeed be the indirect cause of postoperative cardiac complications and general complications can be the consequence of overlooked cardiac risk factors. Furthermore, the authors do not consider data from emergency surgery patients, although emergency is a widely reported independent predictor of operative risk.. As general surgeons working next door to busy cardiology and cardiac surgery services, we developed expertise with elective and emergency noncardiac ...
Cognitive dysfunction is common in adult patients of all ages at hospital discharge after major noncardiac surgery, but only the elderly (aged 60 yr or older) are at significant risk for long-term cognitive problems.

180 days after DES implantation. Thus, these findings may help inform clinical decision making regarding the timing of major elective noncardiac surgery after recent PCI. However, the decision of timing for elective surgery should be individualized, balancing the well-understood risks of restenosis with less certain risks of stent thrombosis, as well as patient anatomy, perioperative bleeding risks, and risks of delaying surgical procedures. Although surgery >180 days after DES may be reasonable in some non-ACS simple lesions with good acute results, data from the current study do not have sufficient size and scope to change current guidelines and recommend earlier surgery after DES, when there remain concerns regarding the residual risk of stent thrombosis within the first year.. ...
Our findings suggest that elective noncardiac surgery can be performed reasonably safely in carefully selected patients once at least 6 months have elapsed since drug-eluting stent implantation. There may also be an optimal time window for performing surgery within the year after bare-metal stent implantation, namely from 46 to 180 days after PCI. Although the presence of this optimal window is not certain, especially because its associated adjusted odds ratio is imprecise, this window is biologically plausible. It represents the period when re-endothelialization is largely complete after bare-metal stent implantation30 but when in-stent restenosis has yet to completely manifest itself.31 Conversely, once ,1 year has elapsed since either bare-metal or drug-eluting stent implantation, physicians can be reassured that the associated perioperative cardiac risk has reached a plateau, with risks similar to that of individuals with remote histories of previous PCI (ie, 2 to 10 years before ...

In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Dr. Hawn and colleagues compared adverse event rates in patients who previous received stents and underwent non-cardiac surgery with those not undergoing surgery. Our purpose was to determine the incremental effect of surgery on perioperative events and estimate the relative contributions of surgical and cardiac factors, Dr. Hawn says. The analysis matched 20,590 surgical patients to 41,180 non-surgical patients who previously received a stent between 2000 and 2010.. Stent recipients who underwent non-cardiac surgery had higher rates of heart attack and/or cardiac revascularization when assessed at 30 days after surgery. However, the incremental risk of non-cardiac surgery ranged from 3.5% immediately following stent implantation to 1.0% at 6 months. After 6 months, the incremental risk of non-cardiac surgery remained stable out to 24 months except with high-risk operations, says Dr. Hawn.. ...
In this large consecutive series of 1,534 consecutive clinical CMR studies, the reported prevalence of any noncardiac pathology was ,10%, with only 3% representing major findings. The majority of major noncardiac pathologies were previously known with ,0.5% of all reports representing new major noncardiac findings of clinical significance.. Our results contrast to studies examining the prevalence of noncardiac findings in cardiac computed tomography (CCT). Hunold et al. (12) found extra-coronary abnormalities in 53% of 1,812 patients who underwent electron beam CT for the assessment of coronary artery calcification (12), whereas Onuma et al. (13) reported that 58% of 503 patients who underwent MDCT of the heart had new, noncardiac pathology. In 2 smaller studies, Dewey et al. (9) found 16 (15%) of 108 patients had noncardiac pathology on coronary artery CT imaging, whereas Haller et al. (10) found noncardiac pathology in 25% of 166 patients who underwent contrast-enhanced MDCT. Finally, a ...
12-24 months, 3.5%; P < .001). MACE rate by stent type was 5.1% for BMS and 4.3% for DES (P < .001). After adjustment, the 3 factors most strongly associated with MACE were nonelective surgical admission (adjusted odds ratio [AOR], 4.77; 95% CI, 4.07-5.59), history of myocardial infarction in the 6 months preceding surgery (AOR, 2.63; 95% CI, 2.32-2.98), and revised cardiac risk index greater than 2 (AOR, 2.13; 95% CI, 1.85-2.44). Of the 12 variables in the model, timing of surgery ranked fifth in explanatory importance measured by partial effects analysis. Stent type ranked last, and DES was not significantly associated with MACE (AOR, 0.91; 95% CI, 0.83-1.01). After both BMS and DES placement, the risk of MACE was stable at 6 months. A case-control analysis of 284 matched pairs found no association between antiplatelet cessation and MACE (OR, 0.86; 95% CI, 0.57-1.29). CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: Among patients undergoing noncardiac surgery within 2 years of coronary stent placement, MACE were ...
Several indexes to predict perioperative cardiovascular risk have been proposed overtime. The most widely used is the Revised Cardiac Risk Index (RCRI) developed by Lee since 1999. It predicts major cardiac outcomes from five independent clinical determinants: history of ischemic heart disease, history of cardiovascular disease, heart failure, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and chronic renal failure (i.e. serum creatinine ,2 mg/dl). In external validation studies, the RCRI showed high negative predictive value in all groups of age, indicating that it may be used to identify people at low risk for perioperative adverse cardiovascular events in noncardiac surgery ...

It is common for a person to worry about a variety of things when told by the doctor that a surgical procedure is required to treat the underlying medical condition. Whether the required surgery is major or minor, people usually get stressed-out and become fearful both about the surgical procedure and its consequences. Many people get scared even on thinking about the anesthesia given before the surgery. If it is the first time that you are about to be operated, then it is normal that you are much tensed up and are unable to carry out your normal routine in a relaxed manner. To face the surgery successfully, you have to acquaint yourself with the surgical procedure that you are going to have and prepare yourself both mentally and physically.

Methods We analysed data for patients undergoing major non-cardiac surgery in 2008 from The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database (a prospective validated outcomes registry from 211 hospitals worldwide in 2008). We obtained anonymised data for 30-day mortality and morbidity (cardiac, respiratory, CNS, urinary tract, wound, sepsis, and venous thromboembolism outcomes), demographics, and preoperative and perioperative risk factors. We used multivariate logistic regression to assess the adjusted and modified (nine predefined risk factor subgroups) eff ect of anaemia, which was defi ned as mild (haematocrit concentration ,29-,39% in men and ,29-,36% in women) or moderate-to-severe (≤29% in men and women) on postoperative outcomes.. Interpretation Preoperative anaemia, even to a mild degree, is independently associated with an increased risk of 30-day morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing major non-cardiac surgery. ...
Objective - To determine the association of non-invasive cardiac stress testing before elective intermediate to high risk non-cardiac surgery with survival and hospital stay..

BACKGROUND: Myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery (MINS) was defined as prognostically relevant myocardial injury due to ischemia that occurs during or within 30 days after noncardiac surgery. The studys four objectives were to determine the diagnostic criteria, characteristics, predictors, and 30-day outcomes of MINS. METHODS: In this international, prospective cohort study of 15,065 patients aged 45 yr or older who underwent in-patient noncardiac surgery, troponin T was measured during the first 3 postoperative days. Patients with a troponin T level of 0.04 ng/ml or greater (elevated abnormal laboratory threshold) were assessed for ischemic features (i.e., ischemic symptoms and electrocardiography findings). Patients adjudicated as having a nonischemic troponin elevation (e.g., sepsis) were excluded. To establish diagnostic criteria for MINS, the authors used Cox regression analyses in which the dependent variable was 30-day mortality (260 deaths) and independent variables included ...
Despite increasingly sophisticated perioperative management, cardiovascular complications continue to be major challenges for the clinician. As a growing number of elderly patients with known coronary artery disease (CAD) or with risk factors for CAD are undergoing non-cardiac surgery, cardiovascular complications will remain a significant clinical problem in the future.. The overall objective of this thesis was to study the incidence of myocardial damage and perioperative adverse cardiac events, to determine predictors of poor outcome and to assess the effect of a medical intervention in patients at risk undergoing non-cardiac surgery.. The studies in this thesis were conducted on a total of 952 patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. Studies I and IV were multicenter studies; whereas the patients included in studies II and III underwent non-cardiac surgery at Linkoping University Hospital, Sweden. The correlation between postoperative myocardial damage and short- and long-term outcome were ...
For individuals who have no anatomic abnormalities, surgeries have been designed to treat their obstructive sleep apnea. All the procedures are designed to increase the size of the throat, either at the level of the palate or at the base of the tongue. A number of procedures have been described for both locations. The procedures have some general features in common. They are not used as the first treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. Generally, when used they are successful less than 50% of the time, are quite painful for two to three weeks afterward and have some associated long-term complications. There is a third type of surgery which is a major surgical procedure designed to enlarge the space behind both the palate and the tongue. In this procedure, both the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible) are moved forward. Maxillo-mandible advancement is a technically demanding major surgical procedure which is only effective 70% of the time. Because of the low success rates, surgical ...
AbstractWorldwide 200 million adults undergo major noncardiac surgery annually, and several million of these patients will suffer a major vascular complication (i.e., vascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal cardiac arrest, nonfatal stroke) in the first 30 days after surgery. Studies have identified several clinical risk factors (e.g., coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease) to help identify patients at risk of a major perioperative vascular complication. A preoperative NT-proBNP measurement may substantially enhance perioperative vascular risk prediction. Troponin measurements for the first few days after surgery hold great promise as a surveillance strategy to allow physicians to avoid missing the majority of perioperative myocardial infarctions. The results of the POISE Trial, which demonstrated that a perioperative beta-blocker prevented myocardial infarctions but at a cost of excess strokes and deaths, highlight why large perioperative trials are necessary. There ...
Introduction: 200 million patients worldwide undergo noncardiac surgery every year. Overt stroke is a serious complication of noncardiac surgery with significant impact on duration and quality of life. In the non-surgical population, covert stroke is 10 times more common then overt stroke and is associated with an increased risk of dementia and cognitive decline. The epidemiology of covert stroke after noncardiac surgery is not well characterized.. Study Objectives: We undertook a pilot study to determine the incidence of covert stroke after noncardiac surgery.. Methods: This was a prospective, international cohort study. Eligible patients were 65 years or older, and were admitted to hospital for at least one night after noncardiac surgery. A sampling strategy was employed to ensure a representative surgical population. Study personnel recorded clinical characteristics and the incidence of perioperative adverse events. We also assessed neurocognitive function, physical function and quality of ...
Perioperative cardiac events are a leading cause of death (1) in the 234 million major surgical procedures performed worldwide annually (2). Every year approximately 900,000 adults worldwide experience major cardiac complications after surgery (3). Accordingly, risk stratification has become an integral part of the evaluation of patients before major surgery. Providing reliable information about perioperative risk may help identify patients who could benefit from receiving more intensive treatment of their cardiac condition, choosing a less invasive surgical procedure, or opting for nonoperative management of their condition.. The American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology guidelines (4) emphasize the use of clinical risk factors-the so called revised cardiac risk index (RCRI)-for cardiac risk stratification. This simplified scoring system, which is based on the presence of coronary artery disease (CAD), heart failure, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes mellitus requiring ...

Aim. To investigate general surgical patients perspectives of the adequacy and appropriateness of their discharge planning. Objectives. To identify any aspects of discharge planning that could be strengthened to assist people in managing their posthospital care and maintaining continuity of care. Background. Appropriate discharge planning is a priority in todays healthcare environment in which patients are discharged quicker and sicker, sometimes without home support. Adequate and appropriate discharge planning helps promote health literacy, which has benefits for both patients and their caregivers in helping them manage postsurgical recovery at home. Design. A qualitative, interpretive study was designed in which patients were interviewed at least one week after they returned home from hospital. Methods. Purposeful sampling was used to interview 13 general surgical patients from one of three hospitals (two public and one private) in New South Wales and Queensland, Australia. Data were collected in

A device and method for preparing for and supporting surgical operations includes a numerically controlled positioning appliance which is arranged in a predetermined or measurable geometric relationship with respect to an operating site. A surgical instrument, such as a machining tool or a holder for a graft, can be releasably connected to this positioning appliance for movement in relation to the operation site. A measurement appliance is used for measuring coordinates of the operation site in relation to a stationary reference system. The holder can be releasably secured to the positioning appliance or, alternatively, can be secured on a securing device which is stationary in relation to the reference system. The securing device is arranged in a predetermined or measurable geometric relationship with respect to the operation site. A data processing unit with memory controls the positioning appliance. The memory stores a data record of a three-dimensional structural image of the operation site.
A suturing instrument for surgical operations is operated by an operator with his one hand. A suturing operation is carried out on a human part to be sutured up by crossing a needle thread and a shuttle thread in a lock stitching formation, the instrument being composed of independent members which are, for use, connected to each other easily, exactly and speedily. The main body of the instrument carrying a needle and a shuttle has an externally operated actuating member which actuates a signal generator incorporated in a connecting arrangement for connecting the main body with the drive part of the instrument, whereby when the drive part is connected to the main body by the connecting arrangement an operator may, by moving the actuating member, activate the drive through the signal generator and set all the parts of the instrument into operating positions.

Dr. Linn said for most men by the age of 60, about 60 to 70 of men will have an enlarged prostate. That was where Hastings learned about a less-invasive procedure called UroLift.. I was his first patient that he did this on, Hastings said.. Dr. Linn said the procedure involves little stitches.. Little stitches that hold the prostate back in the series to open up a channel so its not heating tissue, its not removing tissue, Dr. Linn said. And then I put in an average of four of those. Its different for every guy to open up the prostate and that allows the bladder to empty much easier.. Dr. Linn says the procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia and only takes about an hour..

by admin , Oct 31, 2013. Research has shown that total hip arthroplasty (THA) can significantly improve function and quality of life and reduce pain. THA has yielded excellent results when assessed at 5 to 7 years after the procedure. Despite these successes, there is still ongoing debate about how certain factors relating to patients, implants, surgeons, procedures, and volume affect THA outcomes. The contribution of each of these types of factors is difficult to evaluate independently. The FDA recently provided guidance for the enrollment of women and for conducting sex-specific analyses in device studies, with an emphasis on transparency. This is an important issue in orthopedics, explains Monti Khatod, MD. Sex differences in THA are substantial, and industry has already started developing sex-specific devices. Furthermore, THA is more often performed in women than men. Sex-specific risk factors and outcomes have been investigated for most other major surgical procedures, but Dr. Khatod ...
The risk of VTE in a hospitalized patient is hard to determine with certainty, because it varies widely depending on the ascertainment method. Studies relying on clinical diagnosis have found rates of 20% for deep venous thrombosis and 1% to 2% for PE after major surgical procedures in the absence of prophylaxis. Rates after certain orthopedic procedures are even higher. Studies using more aggressive observational methods (i.e., Doppler ultrasounds on every postoperative patient) have found much higher rates. It is not known how many of these asymptomatic clots would have caused clinical problems, but surely some would have. ...
Through the use of minimally invasive spine surgery techniques, what was formerly a major surgical procedure for the patient suffering from spinal disorders has become very much less serious. The well-being of the patients at our clinic in Germany is therefore much less affected postoperatively than was the case previously. This reduces the recovery period considerably.
