JohnstoneAbstractTourniquets have been around for many years, providing surgeons with a bloodless operative field and saving lives in the pre-hospital care of major limb trauma. However, their use does come with risk. It is therefore extremely important that we, as surgeons, fully understand the physiological influence they impose on patients, the complications associated with their use and, moreover, how to minimize the incidence of these complications. Most tourniquets are now electronically...

This study aims to evaluate radiation exposure in patients with complete portal vein thrombosis (CPVT) or portal cavernoma (PC) undergoing transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation using real-time ultrasound guidance for portal vein targeting.Materials and methodsThis is a single institution retrospective analysis. Between August 2009 and September 2018, TIPS was attempted in 49 patients with CPVT or PC. Radiation exposure (dose area product [DAP], air KERMA (AK) and fluoroscopy time [FT]), technical success, clinical success, complications and survival were analyzed.ResultsIn total, 29 patients had CPV...

An 85-year-old man presented with left hemiparesis, too late for any intervention. Brain computed tomography (CT) revealed a right hemispheric infarct. He had a history of diabetes mellitus (on metformin, statin), hypertension (on losartan/lercanidipine), past smoking, COPD (on inhalers) and peripheral artery disease (on aspirin).

Conclusion: To our knowledge, this is the first report in which an immediate thrombus formation on the carotid web was observed in a patient with congenital protein C deficiency. In a case of acute ischemic stroke with carotid web, especially when congenital coagulopathy such as protein C deficiency is suspected, careful follow-up with ultrasound imaging should be performed.

This study aims to investigate the utility of TTE as part of AIS workup.Methods: We collected data on consecutive patients with AIS who were admitted to our institution between 07/01/2016 and 09/30/2017. Patients were included based on neuroimaging-documented AIS, age>18 and neuroimaging studies. Primary endpoint was the proportion of cases in which TTE yielded relevant finding, defined as Atrial Septa Defect or Patent Foramen Ovale, left atrial enlargement, left ventricular thrombus or ejection fraction of

AbstractKey contentThe number of women attending gynaecological services who are taking oral anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents is increasing.Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are becoming increasingly popular and offer an alternative to warfarin.Knowledge of the use of anticoagulants in the perioperative period is imperative to provide optimal care and ensure patient safety.It is essential that health professionals practising gynaecology, at all levels, keep up to date to reduce unnecessary cancellations, delays in treatment and increased risks of thrombosis and bleeding.Learning objectivesTo understand the managemen...
