Variations of Retromandibular Vein and Its Relation to Facial Nerve Within Parotid Gland

AbstractMaxillary vein and superficial temporal vein unite to form the retromandibular vein in the parotid gland. The facial nerve lies lateral to external carotid artery and retromandibular vein. Identifying and preserving the facial nerve is the prime motto during parotidectomy. So the variations of facial nerve and the retromandibular vein should be known so as to avoid injury to both. The variations we encountered during parotid surgery will be helpful in avoiding unexpected bleeding and injury to facial nerve.

While use of different clotting factor supplements have been used in patients with direct oral anticoagulant induced major bleeding or when there is need for urgent surgery, the lack of preclinical and clinical data are concerning.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe conducted a comprehensive and updated overview on complications occurring after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) for severe aortic stenosis.Recent FindingsDespite remarkable improvements in patient selection, devices, procedures, and ancillary management, complications may still occur in patients undergoing TAVI. On top of most commonly described adverse events such as death, myocardial infarction, stroke, bleeding, vascular complication, renal failure, pacemaker implantation and residual valve regurgitation, other less common but similarly severe complications may still occur. The...
