Microcirculatory perfusion disturbances following cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass are associated with in vitro endothelial hyperpermeability and increased angiopoietin-2 levels

Endothelial hyperpermeability following cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) contributes to microcirculatory perfusion disturbances and postoperative complications after cardiac surgery. We investigated the postoperat...

Five pigs underwent robotic RAT using the da Vinci® robotic system. A robotic left nephrectomy was performed in all cases. Robotic RAT was performed on the left side in all but one case. Four ports were used. In 3 cases, the kidney was taken o...

Authors: White H, Venkatesh B, Jones M, Kruger PS, Walsham J, Fuentes H Abstract Objective: Although extensively studied in children, the safety and tolerability of ketone supplementation in adults is unclear, particularly in the acute brain injury population. The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility and safety of inducing ketosis using an enteric ketogenic formulation and determine its impact on intracranial and cerebral perfusion pressures and metabolic parameters.Methods: Prospective interventional Phase II trial of ventilated critically ill patients with acute brain injury administered a ketogen...

Tissue perfusion is essential for the survival of the tissue inner core and can be achieved through perfusable vascular networks constructed by employing microfluidic technology. However, there are still challenges in recreating a physiologically realistic microenvironment system in vitro. The biochemical and engineering aspects of the tissue microenvironment that regulate vasculature formation on a microfluidic platform are discussed. AbstractVascularization of engineered tissue constructs remains one of the greatest unmet challenges to mimicking the native tissue microenvironment in vitro. The main obstacle is recapitula...

ConclusionDual Tracer technique with Tc‐99m pertechnetate and Tc ‐99m tetrofosmin could be helpful in selecting nodules need surgical intervention. This technique can be used for convenient and rapid diagnostic evaluation of thyroid nodules non‐invasively. We suggest a combination of fine needle aspiration biopsy and dual use of Tc‐99m ‐pertechnetate and Tc‐99m‐tetrofosmin as a routine diagnostic approach to thyroid nodules.

Conclusions: Intraoperative use of indocyanine green angiography was associated with significantly lower odds of fat necrosis. This technology may reduce additional revision operations and improve patient satisfaction. Additional studies are needed to determine whether this innovation is cost-effective and generalizable to the entire autologous breast reconstruction population. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, III.

CONCLUSIONS: Monitoring of mesenteric rSO2 is feasible in patients at risk for intra-abdominal hypertension. Moreover, both mesenteric regional oxygen and perfusion markers may be used to identify pediatric patients at risk for intra-abdominal hypertension. PMID: 32093443 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
