Hi all! I'm a current CA-2 at a midwest program. I'm in the middle of applications for OB fellowship. Hoping to find others engaging in this process and people with information on OB fellowship programs. I'm having a hard time finding much information prior to my interviews on many of the programs' websites.

Background: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is an effective treatment for symptomatic osteoarthritis after failed nonsurgical therapies. Minimizing perioperative complications is critical for faster recovery and shorter hospital stay. The primary aim of this study was to identify predictors of perioperative major complications (MC) and mortality after THA, and to use these predictors to develop a risk scoring system. Methods: The 2006-2016 National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database was queried for adult patients who underwent primary elective THA performed under general or neuraxial anesthesia. Univar...

Recently, Lin et  al1 suggested that high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy was superior to 2 L/min by nasal cannula in terms of the incidence of hypoxia and severe hypoxia among America Society of Anesthesiologists class I–II patients undergoing elective gastroscopy with low-dose propofol sedation (mean dose, 10 6 mg). Hypoxia and severe hypoxia occurred in 8.4% of patients with nasal 2 L/min cannula oxygen therapy versus 0.6% of patients with high-flow oxygen. This differs markedly from our experience with low-dose propofol sedation for diagnostic EGD done without routine supplemental oxygen.

ConclusionAdministration of articaine as a supplemental intraseptal and BI following IANB can be considered a more successful anesthetic technique in mandibular molars with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis compared with the conventional IANB and supplemental BI.Clinical relevanceThe addition of an articaine intraseptal injection to IANB+BI technique may result in a significantly higher success rate of pulpal anesthesia in mandibular molars with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis.

Abstract Online measuring end-tidal propofol concentration during balanced anesthesia is important for anesthetists to learn the patient's anesthesia depth as exhaled propofol concentration is well related to blood propofol concentration. In previous work, exhaled propofol was detected using acetone assisted negative photoionization ion mobility spectrometer, however, the existence of high concentration sevoflurane interfered the response of propofol. In this work, an anisole assisted photoionization ion mobility spectrometer operated in positive mode was developed to sensitively and selectively measure the end-ti...

Objectives It remains controversial whether a subanesthetic dose of ketamine could modulate the antidepressant effect of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in patients with major depressive disorder. We investigated the effect of ketamine on accelerating the antidepressant efficacy of ECT. Methods One hundred twenty-seven patients with major depressive disorder were included in this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study. The study group received 0.3 mg/kg ketamine, and the control group received an isovolumetric dose of normal saline before undergoing ECT under propofol anesthesia. The main outcome was the H...

Authors: Lespasio MJ, Guarino AJ Abstract Heterotopic ossification (HO) is the presence of normal bone in soft tissue where bone should not exist. After direct musculoskeletal trauma of the surrounding soft tissue, HO is hypothesized to develop from a dysfunction of normal lamellar bone formation and remodeling that appears in nonskeletal areas of the body. Acquired HO related to total joint arthroplasty (TJA) of the hip and knee forms outside the joint capsule and can be a challenging condition when it impairs the essential healing process after elective surgery. Although HO is rare after elective TJA and thus cli...

Gupta, Muhammad M. Abd-El-BarrAbstractAwake surgeries are commonly performed in many specialties through the use of local or regional anesthesia. These methods avoid the risks associated with general endotracheal anesthesia and allow faster recovery times. In neurosurgery, awake surgeries are typically reserved for craniotomies involving tumor or lesion resection near eloquent tissue. Only recently has awake spine fusion surgery...

Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated presence of a mass in the area of the right atrium. The mass appeared adherent and possibly infiltrative to the external wall of the right atrium. Three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography allowed better ...
