Spontaneous bilateral cornual uterine dehiscence early in the second trimester after bilateral laparoscopic salpingectomy and in-vitro fertilization: case report. (2/277)

A bilateral cornual uterine dehiscence is reported, which occurred 14 weeks after in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in a patient having a medical history of previous bilateral salpingectomy via laparoscopy. Uterine rupture is a rare obstetric complication usually occurring during the third trimester of pregnancy within a uterus which has previously undergone an operation. Ectopic pregnancy is a well known complication of IVF. Post-salpingectomy cornual localization with rupture has also been published. Possible causes are discussed and the attention of the counselling physician is directed to the necessary awareness of such a complication in this high risk population. The reported case is an extreme rarity: a similar case has not been previously published in the literature.  (+info)

The impairment of wound healing process is correlated with abnormalities of TNF-alpha production by peritoneal exudate cells in obstructive jaundiced rats. (3/277)

The wound healing process and production of tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) by peritoneal cells of 7-day and 14-day obstructive jaundice (OJ) and sham-operated rats were investigated. In the study the skin wound breaking strength was measured. In addition such histological and biochemical parameters as fibroblast and endothelial cell proliferation, inflammatory cell infiltration and hydroxyproline content were evaluated in polyurethane sponge discs implanted subcutaneously into rats. TNF-alpha production by peritoneal exudate cells (PEC), both spontaneous and lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced was determined by a bioassay. In OJ rats the process of both early as well as late phase of healing was impaired. The breaking strength of skin wound was decreased, the fibroblast and endothelial cell proliferation and collagen deposition, as well as hydroxyproline content were diminished. In 7 day OJ the numbers of inflammatory cells in the implants were lowered with a subsequent slight increase on day 14 of OJ. The spontaneous and LPS induced TNF-alpha production by PEC were significantly higher in 7 day OJ as compared with sham-operated controls. On day 14 of OJ the LPS-induced TNF-alpha level was, in contrast, much lower and did not differ much from the spontaneous TNF-alpha production. We conclude that the impairment of wound healing in OJ results from disturbances in functioning of the immune system caused by systemic endotoxaemia.  (+info)

Comparison of closure of subcutaneous tissue versus non-closure in relation to wound disruption after abdominal hysterectomy in obese patients. (4/277)

AIMS: To evaluate the role of subcutaneous tissue closure in relation to wound disruption after abdominal hysterectomy in obese patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In a prospective study at a tertiary referral centre in Mumbai, India, 60 obese patients with subcutaneous fat more than 2.5 cms were included in the study. In 30 patients, subcutaneous tissue was closed using synthetic suture (dexon) while in 30 control patients subcutaneous tissue was not closed. Average weight in the study and control groups were 69 -/+ 9.2 kg and 63.3 -/+ 11.2 kg respectively. RESULTS: The wound disruption occurred in 5 patients in non-closure group as compared to only one in the closure group. Incidence of seroma, haematoma formation and other wound complications were higher in the non-closure group. CONCLUSIONS: Closure of the subcutaneous tissue after abdominal hysterectomy of women with at least 2.5 cms of subcutaneous tissue lowers the overall rate of complications leading to disruption of the incision.  (+info)

Management of complications of tracheal surgery--a case of dehiscence. (5/277)

We report a case of tracheal stenosis in a patient with immune thrombocytopenia who presented 4 yr after splenectomy. The 20-yr progression of the stenosis and management, including resection, is charted. The period after resection was complicated by wound infection, surgical emphysema, mediastinitis and dehiscence of the anastomosis of the trachea. The management of patients with tracheal lesions is discussed, but concentrates on airway care after tracheal resection when complications developed. A laryngeal mask airway was used to stabilize an uncuffed tracheal tube at the site of dehiscence.  (+info)

Closure of abdominal wounds by adhesive strips: a clinical trial. (6/277)

In a randomized trial of wound closure in 512 abdominal wounds, wounds were closed with either reinforced Steristrip skin closures or interrupted silk sutures. Comparisons were made of wound pain and discomfort, wound infection, discharge, redness, width, and skin reaction. The causes of peeling of the tapes were assessed. The results showed that tapes were significantly more comfortable and that patients preferred them to sutures (P less than 0.01), but wide scars occurred more often. There was no difference in rates of wound infection and no case of allergy to the tapes was seen. Closure of abdominal wounds by these tapes is a satisfactory procedure that could be used more extensively.  (+info)

Photochemical keratodesmos for repair of lamellar corneal incisions. (7/277)

PURPOSE: To determine the efficacy of photochemical keratodesmos (PKD) for closing surgical incisions in the cornea of enucleated rabbit eyes compared with that achieved using sutures and self-sealing incisions. METHODS: A 3.5-mm incision, at an angle parallel to the iris, was made in the cornea of enucleated New Zealand White rabbit eyes. The intraocular pressure required to cause leakage (IOP(L)) from the untreated incision was then recorded. Photochemical keratodesmos treatment was then performed by application of a dye, Rose Bengal (RB), in saline solution to the surfaces of the incision wound, followed by laser irradiation at 514 nm from an argon ion laser. Immediately after treatment, the IOP(L) was measured. Both dose and laser irradiance dependencies were studied in five or more eyes for each condition and appropriate control eyes. The IOP(L)s were compared with those obtained using conventional interrupted 10-0 nylon sutures. Other dyes were tested in a similar fashion. RESULTS: The IOP(L) of 300 mm Hg was obtained using a fluence of 1270 J/cm(2) with an irradiance of 1.27 W/cm(2) (laser exposure time, 16 minutes 40 seconds). No sealing was observed using dye or light alone where control pressures of approximately 30 mm Hg were found. At higher dose (1524 J/cm(2)) and irradiance (3.82 W/cm(2); 6 minutes 35 seconds), PKD was less effective, which may be attributable to thermal effects. PKD produced IOP(L)s similar to those in closure by sutures. Other dyes such as riboflavin-5-phosphate and N:-hydroxy-pyridine thione also produced efficient bonding after PKD. Nonphotochemically active dyes did not produce significant increases in the IOP(L) at which leakage occurred. CONCLUSIONS: The increase in IOP(L) after PKD treatment, comparable with that with sutures, in enucleated rabbit eyes demonstrates the feasibility of this technique ex vivo.  (+info)

Prediction of uterine dehiscence by measuring lower uterine segment thickness prior to the onset of labor: evaluation by transvaginal ultrasonography. (8/277)

OBJECTIVE: Lower uterine segment thickness was measured by transvaginal ultrasound examination and its correlations with the occurrence of uterine dehiscence and rupture was examined. METHODS: The thickness of the muscular layer of the lower uterine segment was measured in 186 term gravidas with previous uterine scars and its correlation with uterine dehiscence/rupture was investigated. RESULTS: Uterine dehiscence was found in 9 cases or 4.7%. There were no cases of the uterine rupture. The thickness of the lower uterine segment among the gravidas with dehiscence was significantly less in than those without dehiscence (p< 0.01). The cut-off value for the thickness of the lower uterine segment was 1.6 mm as calculated by the receiver operating characteristic curve. The sensitivity was 77.8%; specificity 88.6%; positive predictive value 25.9%; negative predictive value 98.7%. CONCLUSION: Measurement of the lower uterine segment is useful in predicting the absence of dehiscence among gravidas with previous cesarean section. If the thickness of the lower uterine segment is more than 1.6 mm, the possibility of dehiscence during the subsequent trials of labor is very small.  (+info)

The main objective of this study will be to determine the effects of a new advanced sternum external fixation (Stern-E-Fix) corset on prevention of sternal instability and mediastinitis in high-risk patients. This prospective, randomized study (January 2009 - June 2011) comprised 750 male patients undergoing standard median sternotomy for cardiac procedures (78% CABG). Patients were divided in two randomized groups (A, n = 380: received a Stern-E-Fix corset postoperatively for 6 weeks and B, n = 370: control group received a standard elastic thorax bandage). In both groups, risk factors for sternal dehiscence and preoperative preparations were similar. Wound infections occurred in n = 13 (3.42%) pts. in group A vs. n = 35 (9.46%) in group B. In group A, only 1 patient presented with sternal dehiscence vs. 22 pts. in group B. In all 22 patients, sternal rewiring followed by antibiotic therapy was needed. Mediastinitis related mortality was none in A versus two in B. Treatment failure in group B was more

A total of 16 patients fulfilled the initial non-surgical inclusion and exclusion criteria. However, the study was discontinued early after 9 surgically treated patients because unacceptable safety issues arose and severe infection related to the VN membranes. The VN membrane revealed statistically significantly more soft tissue dehiscence than the BG membrane (56% and 11%, respectively, P = 0.0455). In 3 of these 9 patients the VN membrane had to be removed due to infection early after the first follow-up visit. For the statistical analyses these sites were designated as the value of the baseline. The mean ΔDL values were 1.8 ± 1.6 mm at the VN site and 4.7 ± 3.3 mm at the BG site.

U.S., May 11 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03140683) titled Predictors of Scar Dehiscence in Patients With Previous Caesarean Section on May 3. Brief Summary: In recent decades, the percentage of Cesarean section deliveries has dramatically increased in most countries. Concomitantly, the rates of vaginal birth after Cesarean have decreased steadily. The pregnant women with previous Cesarean section face a difficult choice for their next delivery between a trial of labor after Cesarean or repeat caesarean section delivery. The performance of multiple Cesarean section exposes women to greater risks of complications; furthermore, the risk of complications increases with each subsequent Cesarean section. In fact, women with previous Cesarean section are more likely to experience short and long-term maternal complications in future pregnancies, or a trial of labor after Cesarean, with the risk of [uterine dehiscence, uterine rupture, genitourinary ...

Among 390 pregnant women, 208 (53.3%) had successful vaginal deliveries and 182 (46.7%) women underwent emergency lower segment caesarean section as failed VBAC. Among the 182 women, there were two cases of scar dehiscence and both had emergency LSCS performed for abnormal foetal heart tracing. Both had good foetal outcome ...
Background: Midline incisions have advantage of rapid and wide access to the abdominal cavity with minimal damage to muscles, nerves and the vascular supply of the abdominal wall, hence causing minimal long term morbidity. The techniques of wound closure after midline laparotomy differ among operating surgeons and institutions. Faulty techniques and suture materials used play a crucial role in post-operative wound complications like stich abscess, surgical site infections, wound burst and incisional hernia. Aims: The aim of this study is to assess the outcome of midline abdominal wound closure using small tissue bites versus large tissue bites with reference to surgical site infection and wound dehiscence. Materials and methods: The study is the prospective observational study conducted in the department of general surgery Government Medical College Srinagar. A total of 100 cases were enrolled and studied who underwent midline laparotomy in the elective as well as emergency settings from 2015 to 2018.
Jinling Wang, PhD1, Katherine S Lin, MD2, Keith A Watson, MD2, Caroline G Cao1. 1Wright State University, 2Miami Valley Hospital. INTRODUCTION: Robot-assisted hysterectomy is becoming more common due to its advantages over traditional laparoscopic surgery, such as an ergonomic working posture for the surgeon, a 3D view of the surgical site, and seven degrees-of-freedom in motion. One of the essential and critical steps in robot-assisted surgery is port placement. Well-positioned ports can avoid collisions between instruments, and provide adequate reach and visualization of the surgical site. Several factors must be considered for proper port placement, including the type of surgical intervention, location of the target anatomy, access to the target organ, size of the patient, size of the robotic arms and surgical tools, the physical coupling between the patient and patient cart, and prior surgical history. However, the guidelines provided by the manufacturers are only for a generic patient and ...
Isthmocele is a pouch-like defect on the anterior wall of the uterus at the isthmus. It appears as a fluid-filled pouch in the anterior uterine wall at the site of a previous cesarean section scar. The flow of blood during menstruation through the cervical region may be hampered by the presence of isthmocele. This is because the blood may accumulate in the pouch-like defect because of the presence of fibrotic tissue. This can also cause pelvic pain in the suprapubic area, infertility and abnormal post menstrual bleeding. The global incidence is somewhere between 6.2% and 36%, with an average rate of 21.1%.[1] These symptoms, taken together, have been closely investigated and are called cesarean scar syndrome.[2] Other complications of cesarean scar defect include complications occurring during subsequent pregnancy such as scar dehiscence, scar ectopic pregnancy, placenta previa and accreta. Complications can occur during gynecological procedures like uterine evacuation, hysteroscopy, or during ...
Anther dehiscence is the final function of the anther that causes the release of pollen grains. This process is coordinated precisely with pollen differentiation, floral development, and flower opening. The anther wall breaks at a specific site. Usually this site is observed as an indentation between the locules of each theca and runs the length of the anther, but in species with poricidal anther dehiscence it is instead a small pore. If the pollen is released from the anther through a split on the outer side (relative to the center of the flower), this is extrorse dehiscence, and if the pollen is released from the inner side, this is introrse dehiscence. If the pollen is released through a split that is positioned to the side, towards other anthers, rather than towards the inside or outside of the flower, this is latrorse dehiscence. The stomium is the region of the anther where dehiscence occurs. The degeneration of the stomium and septum cells is part of a developmentally timed cell-death ...
Sternal wound complications (SWC) are a rare but potentially life-threatening complication after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. Especially the use of bilateral IMA (BIMA) grafts as opposed to single IMA (SIMA) grafts is associated with an increased risk of SWC. Skeletonised harvesting has been proposed to reduce this risk. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively investigate the effect of skeletonisation on SWC after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB) in a centre with a high volume of off-pump procedures and high frequencies of BIMA. From January 2010 to November 2016, 1900 consecutive patients underwent OPCAB surgery at the University Hospitals of Leuven. The first group (n = 1487) received non-skeletonised IMA grafts, whereas the second group (n = 413) received skeletonised grafts. Optimal wound management was pursued in all patients. A new four-grade classification for SWC was developed. Incidence and grade of SWC as well as overall survival were assessed.

Megan Ishibashi, B.S., Toby Ishizuka, B.A. ABSTRACT Osteotomies that require a large incision site and are performed with a high-energy instrument may result in neurovascular injury and postoperative wound complications. The Gigli saw technique is a minimally invasive alternative to open dissection osteotomies. This technique uses a flexible stainless steel cable with attached handles in…
A surgical wound has typically been closed by approximation of the wound edges by either suturing or other closing methods such as stapling. This is called first intention healing. A wound dehiscence means that the wound breaks in the line of the sutures or other closing method and this is usually caused by an infection.. Sometimes a dehiscence can be re-sutured but if the infection is not eradicated before that, it is most likely to open (dehisce) again. Also, an infection leaves the wound edges weak, and the sutures, or other closing method, will not have a good hold but are likely to slide. Usually, there is not enough skin along the edges to try suturing for a third time.. A surgical wound that has dehisced / sprung open is usually left to heal by its own means, filling up with new granulation tissue from the bottom. This is called second intention healing or closure by second intend. This process also requires that the infection is cleared.. Amicapsil swiftly removes the infection without ...
Introduction. Intestinal wound healing is an essential process for surgical reconstruction of the digestive tract (1-6). The anastomotic dehiscence and leakage that occurs as a result of it may lead to high rates of morbidity and mortality. The risk of anastomotic leakage is high in large bowel surgery in contrast with surgery of the small bowel (7-11). Many factors, including pathological conditions, surgical technique, the localization (left colon or right colon) and type of operation, the patients age, the presence of obstruction and whether the operation was elective or emergency, which may affect the success of anastomotic healing have been studied (12-26). The nutritional status of the patient affects wound healing during the early postoperative period directly, and nutritional support facilitates healing, especially in malnourished patients (27-29).. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in plasma and skeletal muscle, but circulating and tissue concentration fall precipitously after ...
A new smartphone app, WoundCare, is enabling patients to remotely send images of their surgical wounds for monitoring by nurses, allowing earlier detection of surgical site infections (SSIs) and prevention of hospital re-admissions. SSIs are the most common hospital-acquired infection and the leading cause of hospital re-admission following an operation. Given the prevalence off SSIs, researchers at the Wisconsin Institute of Surgical Outcomes Research, Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, set out to assess if postoperative wounds could be effectively monitored by having patients upload photos through the WoundCare app and answering a few brief questions to gather information not easily captured through images.. Patients cannot identify infections and frequently ignore or fail to recognise the early signs of wound complications, according to a report of the research published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons. This leads to the common and frustrating ...

Bronchitis is a recognized hazard in anesthesia and surgery because coughing and tracheobronchial hyperirritability and hypersecretion predispose the patient to the following complications: (a) spasm of larynx, bronchi and respiratory muscles; (b) respiratory obstruction by bronchorrhea; (c) atelectasis, pneumonia, and (d) wound dehiscence, incisional hernia, recurrence of hernia. These are sequelae of bronchitis regardless of its etiologic origin. Yet when smoking is the cause of bronchitis its harmful potentialities are generally not respected. This report is an effort to arouse prophylactic interest in the smoking habits of surgical patients by supplying reliable clinical data on tobacco bronchitis, especially with regard ...
The overall complication rate following bilateral rostral mandibulectomy in dogs is 38%. The most common complications are mandibular drift and malocclusion (common), incisional swelling (common), tongue protrusion (common), wound dehiscence (8%-19%), ranula-like lesions (8%-14%), and short-term eating difficulties (up to 44% overall with 30%, 70%, 90%, and 97% of dogs returning to voluntary eating by day 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively). The median time to return to voluntary eating is 2.5 days following hemimandibulectomy in dogs.. Complications are more frequently encountered in cats with 100% of cats having short-term complications and 84%-98% of cats having long-term complications. The most common complications are eating difficulties and/or dysphagia. Eating difficulties and/or dysphagia are seen in 74% of cats in the first 14 days and long-term in 53% of cats treated with hemimandibulectomy. Eating difficulties and/or dysphagia are seen in 83% of cats in both the short- long-term in cats ...
Ms. Laura Walls was is a 57-year-old female who was admitted to Trevecca Center for Rehabilitation and Healing on July 25, 2019, after staying at Vanderbilt Hospital for wound dehiscence and disease of thyroid gland and H/O colon cancer. After being admitted to Trevecca, she was met by the admissions team, social workers, our therapy team, and our wound care team to asses her. She was also greeted and assessed by many other members of our wonderful Trevecca team to gather details about Ms. Walls to help ensure that she has a wonderful stay at Trevecca.. While at Vanderbilt, she was informed of the damage of her wound and that she would need extra care for her wound, and was suggested our center. Our wound care team is very well admired from hospitals, and this particular wound that they have helped treat doesnt fall short of showing how well their team works. On arrival, Ms. Laura Walls wound measured 23.0 x 1.0 x 8.0 cm with 25% yellow necrosis and 75% red granulation tissue. On August 20, ...
BACKGROUND: The exact characteristics of sutures are not only the basis for selecting from among different types of suture, but also provide the necessary information for the design of new surgical sutures. Apart from information relating to the breaking load of a suture reported in pharmacopoeias, the viscoelastic properties of sutures can be an additional selection criterium - one that influences stitching quality, especially when there is a risk of wound dehiscence. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to assess the stress relaxation process for 3 polymeric sutures in an environment simulating the conditions in a living organism and (for comparison) in room conditions ...
Objective: To study the association between known diabetes and complications after skin surgery. Method: In a 5-year prospective observational study, 7,224 lesions were excised on 4,197 patients in a referral center involving one surgeon in a southern Australian locale. Results: One hundred ninety-six patients with known diabetes (4.7%) underwent 551 excision procedures (7.6%) 4,001 people without diabetes underwent 6,673 procedures. Patients with diabetes were older (72 ± 13) than those without (64 ± 17) (p|.001.) Infection incidence was significantly higher in patients with diabetes (4.2%, 23/551) than in those without (2.0%, 135/6,673) (p|.001). There were five bleeds in patients with diabetes (0.9%) versus 47 in those without (0.7%) (p=.58). The incidence of wound dehiscence in patients with diabetes (2) was not different from that in those without (22), (p=.90). Noninfective complications were 1.8% for patients both with diabetes (10/551) and those without (118/6,673). Two thousand three hundred
The median volume of fluid aspirated was significantly lower in the axillary drainage group (0.00 ml; 0.00 - 270.00) compared to the no drain group (522.50 ml; 130.00 - 1148.75). The median number of aspirations performed during conservative breast cancer treatment was significantly lower in the drainage group (0.5; 0.0 - 4.0) compared to the no drain group (5.0; 3.0 - 7.0). The total volume of serous fluid produced (the volume of fluid obtained from drainage added to the volume of aspirated fluid) was similar in the two groups. Regarding complications, two cases (2.4%) of wound dehiscence occurred in the drainage group compared to 13 cases (13.5%) in the group in which drainage was not performed, with this difference being statistically significant. Rates of infection, necrosis and hematoma were similar in both groups. ...

Objective. To investigate whether cone beam computed tomography filters would improve periimplant dehiscence detection.. Study design. A hundred titanium implants were placed in bovine ribs in which defects simulating periimplant dehiscence had previously been created. After images acquisition, three oral radiologists assessed them with and without the following filters: Angio Sharpen high 5 x 5, Shadow, Sharpen 3 x 3, Sharpen Mild, and Smooth. The McNemar test verified the disagreement between all images versus the reference standard and original images versus images with filters; P , .05 was considered statistically significant.. Results. Dehiscence detection using the original images and the Shadow filter disagreed from the reference standard (P , .05), as well as when using the filters instead of the original images (P , .05).. Conclusion. All the filters tested, with the exception of the Shadow, improved periimplant dehiscence detection. The Sharpen 3 x 3 filter was considered best for this ...

A collection of blood (known as a haematoma) or body fluid (seroma) can build up underneath the skin. Any collection can often be treated using a needle and syringe. Rarely, a return to the operating theatre is needed.. Poor healing leading to wound breakdown and skin loss can occur. Although scars will often become a little red, raised and lumpy over the first three months following surgery, this usually settles to a white line. However, on occasions the changes in the scar may persist and need treatment. Rarely, the position of the tummy button may seem off-centre. Having said that, studies have shown that after bearing children the position of the tummy button can be any point within four centimetres of the central point of the tummy (abdomen).. The scar can sometimes develop small but pointed bulges at either end of the wound. These areas, which plastic surgeons call dog ears, usually settle down without any intervention. However, out-patient minor surgery under a local anaesthetic is ...
Im back, 12 days after my total hysterectomy.

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.. The safety assessment of THROMBIN-JMI is based primarily on the review of post marketing experience including three (3) randomized controlled clinical trials in which THROMBIN-JMI was used as a comparator and one (1) observational study. In these studies, the most common adverse reactions (incidence greater than or equal to 2%) following administration of THROMBIN-JMI were: hypersensitivity, bleeding, anemia, post-operative wound infection, thromboembolic events, hypotension, pyrexia, tachycardia and thrombocytopenia [see Clinical Studies (14)]. ...
