Clinical Fluid Therapy in the Perioperative Setting
Conclusion: A single surgical procedure to implant a differential pressure shunt can simultaneously drain and obliterate an extracerebral fluid collection while managing the hydrocephalus. Compared to routines that include external drainage, differential pressure shunting requires fewer surgeries, shorter hospitalization, with expected less expense.Pediatr Neurosurg
Many types of ocular surgery can cause diplopia, including eyelid, conjunctival, cataract, refractive, glaucoma, retinal, and orbital surgery. Mechanisms include direct injury to the extraocular muscles from surgery or anesthesia, scarring of the muscle complex and/or conjunctiva, alteration of the muscle pulley system, mass effects from implants, and muscle displacement. Diplopia can also result from a loss of fusion secondary to long-standing poor vision in one eye or from a decompensation of preexisting strabismus that was not recognized preoperatively. Treatment, which typically begins with prisms and is followed by su...

Conclusion Both fluorescence systems are valid and applicable for SLN mapping in the case of apparent confined endometrial cancer. In our experience, the PinPoint system seems to allow surgeons an easier and faster nodal staging of the SLN's, particularly with the color segmented fluorescence function activated that can better discriminate between the lymphatic channels and the real SLN's [4,5].
Conclusions TAP block using liposomal bupivacaine provides effective analgesia comparable to PCA.
Dr. Eger and colleagues developed a technique to determine the proper dosage of anesthesia in operating rooms all over the world, saving an untold number of lives.
Clarius Mobile Health, a Canadian firm, is a pioneering company specializing in portable solutions for ultrasound diagnostics. Since its debut, it has surprised and impressed us with its tiny portable ultrasounds. Clarius offers the only app-based, wireless ultrasound scanner that can be taken to the point of care even in the most rugged conditions. The multi-purpose Clarius C3 scanner comes with transducer clip-ons, transforming the convex scanner that can image heart, lungs, and deep structures, into a linear or virtual phased array scanner. Although these clip-ons are not meant to replace the dedicated Clar...
