Liposuction of the Neck: Low Incidence of Nerve Injury and Other Complications in 987 Patients.

We present a large case series (n=987) performed by three dermatologic surgeons. Five patients developed temporary post-operative marginal mandibular dysfunction, one patient had submandibular gland ptosis and one patient had arterial bleeding. Seroma, skin necrosis, scarring, and hyperpigmentation did not occur following neck liposuction. Neck liposuction performed with tumescent local anesthesia is a safe procedure associated with a low incidence of nerve injury and other complications. J Drugs Dermatol. 2018;17(1):30-34..

Authors: Yang Z, Xie Z, Pei X, Quan X, Feng D Abstract The guiding value of thrombelastography (TEG) on the selection of surgical timing for patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was investigated. A total of 90 subjects with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) treated between February 2014 and December 2016 in Henan Provincial People's Hospital were recruited. The patients received dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) and were scheduled for CABG. Subjects were randomly allocated into two groups, TEG group (n=45) and non-TEG group (n=45). Patients in the TEG group withheld medications at 24 h prior to ...

Conclusion: We conclude that there is no difference between bougie and balloon dilation of BESs regarding symptomatic relief, recurrence rate at 12 months, bleeding, and perforation. Patients undergoing balloon dilation present less severe postprocedure pain. PMID: 30116265 [PubMed]

Authors: Berry R, Han J, Girotra M, Tabibian JH Abstract Hemobilia refers to bleeding from and/or into the biliary tract and is an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Hemobilia has been documented since the 1600s, but due to its relative rarity, it has only been more critically examined in recent decades. Most cases of hemobilia are iatrogenic and caused by procedures involving the liver, pancreas, bile ducts, and/or the hepatopancreatobiliary vasculature, with trauma and malignancy representing the two other major causes. A classic triad of right upper quadrant pain, jaundice, and overt upper gastrointe...

Dual Energy Computed Tomography Scans of the Bowel: Benefits, Pitfalls, and Future Directions. Radiol Clin North Am. 2018 Sep;56(5):805-819 Authors: Yeh BM, Obmann MM, Westphalen AC, Ohliger MA, Yee J, Sun Y, Wang ZJ Abstract Current computed tomography bowel imaging is challenging given the variable distension, content, and location of the bowel, the different appearance of tumors within and adjacent to bowel, and peristaltic artifacts. Published data remain sparse. Derangements in enhancement may be highlighted, image artifacts reduced, and radiation dose from multiphase scans minimized. This m...

Abstract Lower gastrointestinal bleeding is defined as occurring distal to the ligament of Treitz and presents as hematochezia, melena, or with anemia and positive fecal occult blood test. Imaging plays a pivotal role in the localization and treatment of lower gastrointestinal bleeds. Imaging tests in the workup of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding include computed tomography (CT) angiography, nuclear medicine scintigraphy, and conventional catheter angiography. Catheter angiography can also be used to deliver treatment. Imaging tests in the workup of occult lower gastrointestinal bleeding include CT enterogra...

CONCLUSION: Arteriovenous access surgery can be safely performed in an ambulatory setting, in spite of complex cases, comorbidities, or the increasing implementation of axillary plexus blocks. Surgical results and patency are good, and complications necessitating readmission remain very low. PMID: 30117363 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Wortman M Abstract Endometrial ablation (EA) is the most commonly performed surgical procedure for the management of abnormal uterine bleeding unresponsive to medical therapy. In well-selected subjects, EA provides a safe, inexpensive, and convenient alternative to hysterectomy with a rapid return to normal function. The first generation of EA techniques were introduced in 1886 by Professor Sneguireff of Moscow. He was the first to apply super-heated steam to the uterine cavity to vaporize the endometrial basalis. This method-known as atmocausis-was refined by Ludwig Pincus of Danzig in 1895, and he went o...

ConclusionsPDT performed using a saline-filled cuff as the ultrasound-guided puncture target and an endotracheal tube exchanger is feasible, and appeared to be easier to perform than standard PDT. Larger studies are required to confirm the safety and benefits of this technique.
