Precise mathematics yet hazy predictions: Can validated risk indices help improve patient selection for major elective surgery?
ConclusionOffering advantages such as enhanced coagulation properties and high-quality incision, absence of bleeding, low risk of nerve damage, and few comorbidities.
AbstractLuigi Porta (1800 –1875), an Italian physician who was well known in the field of surgery, played an important role in spreading ethereal anesthesia in Europe. Moreover, he proposed an original method to administer ethereal anesthesia, the Italian method “of the bladder of pig”. This paper reminds us of the imp ortant role that this physician played in Anesthesiology.
ConclusionOur data support the presence of persistent pain in pediatric patients after common surgeries. Most patients who developed persistent pain at 6 months had pain at 1 month. We recommend questioning at follow‐up visit about persistent pain and functional impairment with follow‐up until resolution.
I'm a 3rd year and starting to plan my 4th year electives, and will eventually apply to anesthesiology residencies and am thinking about a peds fellowship afterward. I'd like to take clinical electives that will help build a foundation before residency. Here's a list (sorted by category) of what looks interesting and potentially useful to me. Any advice as to which of these sounds particularly useful would be appreciated. Cardiology - Clinical cardiology - Clinical cardiology... Clinical electives to take 4th year of med school before anesthesiology residency?
ConclusionThrombectomy of UOS with anterior circulation occlusion and DWI‐FLAIR mismatch appears to be as safe and efficient as thrombectomy of KOS within 6 hours from onset. This pattern of imaging could be used for patient selection when time of onset is unknown.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
ConclusionsDespite older age and co-morbidities including more advanced cancer, patients undergoing Hartmann ’s procedure had low rates of serious postoperative complications and re-laparotomy. A low HP was not associated with a higher rate of intra-abdominal infection. HP seems to be appropriate for old and frail patients with rectal cancer.
We performed a systematic review of various anaesthetic medications for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and aimed to make a comprehensive comparison based on a network meta-analysis.
The field of medicine is built upon science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), yet the United States is rapidly falling behind when it comes to educating the next generation in these disciplines, especially under-represented populations. The authors reflect on existing educational literature surrounding efforts to promote interest in STEM among students and under-represented populations. The authors advocate for greater efforts toward the development of youth programing. Cardiac anesthesia is uniquely positioned as a subspecialty to advance the goal of promoting interest in STEM in diverse groups of young students.
ConclusionsOur study results suggest that performing dental treatments under GA can reduce the dental anxiety levels of children with a high number of caries.
Conclusions Major morbidity and mortality rates SCA-TAVR are equivalent to TF-TAVR. The SCA should be the preferred secondary access site for TAVR because it offers procedural and clinical outcomes comparable to TF-TAVR and applies to most patients who are not TF candidates.
