Energy sealing devices achieve hemostasis of the blood vessels through sequential coagulation and transection. Although use has been widely spread in multiple surgical fields, safety for sealing collaterals of autologous grafts during bypass surgery is unknown. We compare the efficacy of the main sealing devices used, Electrothermal Bipolar Tissue Sealing System (EB; LigaSure, Valleylab Inc, Boulder, Colo) and Harmonic scalpel (HS; Ethicon, Somerville, NJ), vs conventional vessel ligation of saphenous vein collaterals for revascularization surgery.

Authors: Freitas C, Barranha R, Abreu T, Von Doellinger O Abstract Manic and hypomanic states associated with antidepressant treatments are relatively common; however, when specifically considering mirtazapine, those side effects are infrequent. The authors report a clinical case regarding a manic episode with dysphoric features in a patient with no personal or family previous psychiatric history. It began two weeks after starting treatment with mirtazapine up to 30 mg/day. This episode was treated discontinuing mirtazapine and initiating olanzapine (10 mg), with symptomatic remission. Mirtazapine has a specific ph...

Gotlib, Brian KnutsonAbstractAlthough behavioral sensitivity to reward predicts the onset and course of mania in bipolar disorder, the evidence for neural abnormalities in reward processing in bipolar disorder is mixed. To probe neural responsiveness to anticipated and received rewards in the context of bipolar disorder, we scanned individuals with remitted bipolar I disorder (n=24) and well-matched controls (n=24; matched for age and gender) using Functional Magnetic Resonance...

Authors: Manabe H, Tezuka F, Yamashita K, Sugiura K, Ishihama Y, Takata Y, Sakai T, Maeda T, Sairyo K Abstract For full-endoscopic lumbar discectomy, operating costs are also important because expensive equipment are necessary. We surveyed the operating costs of surgical equipment necessary for full-endoscopic surgery together with surgical procedure reimbursement fees. A total of 295 cases of full-endoscopic surgery via a transforaminal approach were retrospectively analyzed. We calculated the frequency of damage and the unit purchase price of devices such as endoscopes, and surgical instruments such as grasping f...
