Abbott Laboratories is bringing two of its pediatric devices in the cardiology space to Europe. The Abbott Park, IL-based company has received CE mark for both the Masters HP 15mm rotatable mechanical heart valve and the Amplatzer Piccolo Occluder. The Masters valve is the world's smallest mechanical heart valve and allows doctors to treat babies and toddlers in need of a mitral or aortic heart valve replacement. Until Abbott's device, surgeons could only use a range of larger-sized valves to replace a pediatric heart valve that could not be repaired, which could result in improper fit and complications. The Masters pediat...

Authors: Ewy S, Pham H, Quan K, Su B, Tachdjian R Abstract Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a rare blistering skin disease that is commonly treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents. Here, we present a 74-year-old woman with severe BP following a leg fracture who was successfully treated with omalizumab. We started her on a regimen of omalizumab 300 mg subcutaneously every 4 weeks, and within a week she reported significantly decreased pain and faster healing time of lesions. Incidentally, bilateral erythematous, non-blistering dermatitis developed 5 centimeters distal to the injection sites within a week...

We present a patient with refractory neuropathic pain in a normotrophic spread-scar treated with the injection of BTA. A 47-year-old Caucasian female with a history of invasive melanoma of the left upper arm presented with pain in her excision scar, which she described as a “pins and needles” sensation alternating with a dull, deep ache. She had previously tried topical lidocaine, topical and intralesional steroids, and oral gabapentin without improvement. We treated the patient with 50 U of onabotulinumtoxinA intradermally at 1-1.5 cm intervals within and immediately around the perimeter of the scar. At 1-wee...

Objectives: Discharge destination is a commonly used surrogate for long-term recovery in rehabilitation studies. We determined the accuracy of discharge destination as a surrogate marker for 6-month mobility impairment in acute respiratory distress syndrome survivors. Design/Setting: Secondary analysis of the Economic Analysis of Pulmonary Artery Catheters study, a long-term observational sub-study of the National Institutes of Health/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Network Fluid and Catheter Treatment Trial. Patients: Patients underwent functional assessment using the ...

CONCLUSIONS Arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction currently appears to be the method of choice in unreconstructed supraspinatus and infraspinatus tear. Our group of patients shows that early clinical outcomes of SCR using xenograft are very promising. A significant pain relief and a considerable improvement in the range of motion of the operated shoulder joint were observed. No complication specifically associated with the use of xenograft has been reported as yet. A longer follow-up period and assessment of a larger group of patients will be necessary to confirm the success of this surgical procedure. Key words: ma...

Rosenbaum J Abstract PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a serious and fairly frequent disorder with prevalence increasing with age which often results in a disability. The surgical procedures are often very risky due to the greater age of patients with severe stenosis and their comorbidities. The study aimed to assess the functional outcomes and complications in patients who underwent surgical treatment for LSS at one year postoperatively and to identify the differences in the functional outcomes, if any, in dependence on the number of operated segments. MATERIAL AND METHODS It was a prospective ...

aacute;č P Abstract The team of authors presents a case of the patient who suffered an isolated unstable extra-articular distal ulnar fracture, the surgical treatment of which was affected by a postponed management in consequence of inadequate primary treatment. The primary non-operative treatment resulted in a complex malunion ad latus, ad axim and ad peripheriam. The malunion which led to a painful restricted range of motion of the forearm (59%), decreased hand grip strength and significant limitation of activities of daily living was surgically treated by a triplane corrective osteotomy at 11 months after inju...
