Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous studies on readmissions after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation have focused on hospital readmissions after dismissal from the index hospitalization. Because few data exist, the purpose of this study was to examine intensive care unit (ICU) readmissions in patients during their initial hospitalization for LVAD implantation to determine reasons for, factors associated with, and incidence of mortality after ICU readmission. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed from February 2007 to March 2015 of patients at our institution receiving first-time LVAD impla...

Study Design. A prospective randomized trial of patients enrolled at a university affiliated tertiary medical center between February and December 2017. Objective. To compare perioperative blood loss in patients undergoing elective posterior thoracolumbar fusion who were treated with intravenous (IV) versus oral (PO) tranexamic acid (TXA). Summary of Background Data. The use of antifibrinolytic agents such as TXA to decrease operative blood loss and allogenic blood transfusions is well documented in the literature. While evidence supports the use of IV and topical formulations of TXA in spine surgery, the use of PO...

ConclusionsAlthough the risks involved are high, level III-IV RA-IVCT is feasible and serves as an alternative minimally invasive method for selected patients. It also requires more complex techniques and multidisciplinary cooperation.Patient summaryWe studied the treatment of patients with level III-IV inferior vena cava (IVC) tumor thrombi using a robotic approach. This technique was feasible for well-selected patients. However, level III-IV robot-assisted IVC thrombectomy requires more complex techniques and multidisciplinary cooperation.

Conclusions: Most surgery-related acute kidney injury occurred within 48 hours of surgery. Acute kidney injury occurring within the first 48 hours was associated with underlying health, whereas acute kidney injury occurring after 48 hours was related to postoperative complications or drugs. Design of clinical and experimental interventions for acute kidney injury in this population should consider these differences.

CONCLUSIONS: As current evidence shows, RARC seems as a technically feasible and safe procedure, providing equivalent perioperative and oncological results compared to ORC. More prospective, randomized-controlled trials are necessary to draw definitive conclusions on all comparative aspects. PMID: 31086134 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractAimsThe occurrence of hyperbilirubinaemia after heart surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass or post ‐operative heart failure is fairly common. We investigated the incidence, predictive value, and post‐operative outcome of hyperbilirubinaemia after cardiac surgery in an effort to identify potential risk factors and significance on clinical outcome.Methods and resultsBetween 2006 and 2016, 1272 (10.1%) out of 12  556 patients developed hyperbilirubinaemia, defined as bilirubin concentration>3  mg/dL, during post‐operative course at our institution. All patients who were operated using cardiopulmonar...

Aplastic anemia (AA) is a hematologic disease characterized by pancytopenia and hypocellular bone marrow, potentially leading to chronic anemia, hemorrhage, and infection. The China Aplastic Anemia Committee and British Committee for Standards in Haematology guidelines recommend hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT) or immunosuppressive therapy (IST) comprising antithymocyte globulin (ATG) with cyclosporine (CsA) as initial treatment for AA patients. With limited epidemiological data on the clinical management of AA in Asia, a prospective cohort registry study involving 22 AA treatment centers in China was conduct...
