This study included 24 patients with severe MV disease and medical comorbidities who were considered too high risk for conventional MV replacement. All patients underwent TMVIV or TMVIR with Edwards Sapien XT or S3 transcatheter valves (Edwards Lifesciences). A secure database of patient demographics, preoperative risk assessment, and procedural data was created and included technical success rates, blood loss, operative time, and intraoperative and immediate postoperative complications. Subsequent follow-up of patient outcomes reported here include those collected at 30 days, 180 days, and 1 year. RESULTS: Of the 24 p...

Authors: Zhang J, Shi K, Jia H Abstract Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is highly associated with post-operative pain. The present randomized trial aimed to explore the possible post-operative pain management by a different combination of analgesics or opioids (ketamine and bupivacaine) following TKA. A total of 84 patients were randomly divided into four groups. All subjects were anesthetized for TKA surgery and received post-operative pain management via intra-articular saline (control group; n=23), ketamine (2 mg/kg) infused with saline (ket group; n=21) bupivacaine (0.5 mg/kg) infused with saline (bupi group; n=2...

AbstractPurposeInguinal hernia repair and general anesthesia (GA) are known risk factors for urinary retention. Paravertebral blocks (PVBs) have been utilized to facilitate enhanced recovery after surgery. We evaluate the benefit of incorporating PVBs into our anesthetic technique in a large cohort of ambulatory patients undergoing inguinal hernia repair.MethodsRecords of 619 adults scheduled for ambulatory inguinal hernia repair between 2010 and 2015 were reviewed and categorized based on anesthetic and surgical approach [GA and open (GAO), GA and laparoscopic (GAL), PVB and open (PVBO), and GA/PVB and open (GA/PVBO)]. Pa...

The incidence of gynecological malignancies is on the rise partly because of the availability of screening programmes, awareness, higher technological advancements, and availability of better medical care. Early diagnosis of any malignancy leads to prompt treatment. Use of 18Fluorine-Fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) PET/CT in the treatment and follow-up of patients with Ca cervix considerably improves patient management. The primary diagnosis of Ca cervix is made either by biopsy of a visible tumor on the cervix or by a cone biopsy of a nonvisible malignant cervical focus. The staging procedure is purely clinical (i.e. gynecol...
