We prospectively evaluated the impact of serum albumin levels (ALB) on international normalized ratio of prothrombin time (PT-INR) control and hemorrhagic events in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients treated with warfarin.MethodsSeven hundred fifty-five non-v...

Preprocedure circuit performance as indicated by extracorporeal membrane oxygenation postoxygenator PO2 is an independent predictor of major complications following percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy.

Authors: Rossi SMP, Ghiara M, Castelli A, Ivone A, Jannelli E, Benazzo F Abstract Measured resection and ligament balancing techniques are the most used in TKA; both require, in the majority of knee arthroplasty systems, a femoral intramedullary canal referencing for the distal femoral cut. Fat embolism, activation of coagulation and bleeding may occur from the reamed canal; this can be avoided with different solutions such as navigation, patient specific instruments or the use of an extramedullary device. The FuZionTM tensor was created as a blended method with the purpose to overcome the downsides of both techniq...

This study was a retrospective analysis of a clinical database. Included were all digital single-operator digital video (SOV) pancreaticoscopy-guided interventions (n = 23) on CCP patients (n = 20) between 2015 and 2017. Success and complication rates were collected from the database. Clinical success was determined by assessing pain level score (NRS) and quality of life (QoL) using standardized questionnaires. Results Overall technical success rate (successful SOV-pancreaticoscopy and PD drainage) was 95 %. Adverse events occurred in 7 of 23 procedures (30 %) and included extravasation from the PD (n...
