Bleeding in Knee Arthroplasty: Age, Drained Volume, and Ischemia Time

J Knee SurgDOI: 10.1055/s-0034-1388655Drainages in primary knee arthroplasty remain unclear. Our aim is to analyze variables that may affect bleeding in knee arthroplasty (age, drained volume, and ischemia time). We included 188 knee arthroplasties, divided into three groups: conventional approach for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty (MIS), and unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UNI). Main variables analyzed for the present study were age, drained volume, and ischemia time. Other recorded variables were operated knee, pre- and postoperative hematocrit, diagnosis, comorbidities, and transfusions required. No relationship between age and drained volume was observed. However, patients younger than 70 years presented a major rate of survival curve bleeding. A statistically significant difference was found between drained volume in UNI in contrast to TKA and MIS. There was a significant relationship between time and bleeding at 24 hours postoperative, observing that the greater the bleeding, the longer it would keep bleeding (log-rank, p

Basel, 27 May 2020 - Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced positive topline results from the phase III Archway study, evaluating Port Delivery System with ranibizumab (PDS) in people living with neovascular or “wet” age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). PDS is a permanent refillable eye implant, approximately the size of a grain of rice, which continuously delivers a customised formulation of ranibizumab over a period of months. The Archway trial met its primary endpoint, demonstrating that patient s with PDS who received refills every six months achieved visual acuity outcomes equivalent to tho...

Conclusions: The visual field is more clearly exposed during submucosal tunneling when using the near-focus mode than when using traditional procedures. This technique appears to be more efficient and secure than the traditional ESTT procedure. PMID: 32449398 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Watanabe S, Oda J, Nakahara I, Matsumoto S, Suyama Y, Hasebe A, Suzuki T, Tanabe J, Suyama K, Hirose Y Abstract Mechanical thrombectomy using a retrograde approach is performed for tandem occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA). In our patient, a guiding catheter was easily passed by the stenosed lesion despite severe stenosis at the ICA origin. Therefore, we aimed to recanalize the occlusion of the terminal ICA without angioplasty for the stenosed lesion. When contrast was injected, a massive extravasation of contrast from the C2 portion of the ICA was observed. It was speculated that the bleeding ...

AbstractBackgroundThe impact of structural heart disease (SHD) on safety and efficacy of catheter ablation of cavo-tricuspid isthmus-dependent atrial flutter (AFLU) is unclear. In addition, recent data suggest a higher complication rate of AFLU ablation compared to the more complex atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation procedure.Methods and resultsWithin our prospective multicenter registry, 3526 consecutive patients underwent AFLU ablation at 49 German electrophysiological centers from 2007 to 2010. For the present analysis, the patients were divided into a group with SHD (n = 2164 [61.4%]; median age 69 year...

AbstractObjectiveThe aim of this randomized controlled trial was to evaluate the interproximal cleaning efficacy of waist-shaped compared with straight soft interdental brushes in patients undergoing nonsurgical periodontal therapy.Materials and methodsTen patients diagnosed with periodontitis stage II or III were scheduled for nonsurgical periodontal therapy. Baseline plaque control record (PCR), modified approximal plaque index (API), papillary bleeding index (PBI), probing pocket depth (PPD), and bleeding on probing (BOP) were evaluated. Four interdental spaces of equal sizes were determined, and baseline plaque indices...
