Cutaneous horn ( cornu cutaneum ) in a Pakistani goat
In this report, this lesion was observed on the apex of the ear in a female Pakistani goat. The size of the cutaneous horn was 12 cm length. It was removed under local anesthesia and fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin. Histopathologic examination showed well-differentiated keratinocytes without atypical keratinocytes. Thick dermal collagenous bundles were observed in the horn base. Mononuclear cell inflammation was obser ved around the vessels of the dermis in the base of lesion.
CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest that the old concept of securing the airway in difficult situation by tracheostomy should be revised. PMID: 32773741 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The intraoperative general anesthesia combined with thoracic epidural anesthesia and postoperative epidural analgesia may reduce adverse effect on cellular immune and cognitive functions of patients undergoing thoracotomy for EsC. PMID: 32773737 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Bohl DD, Idarraga AJP, Hamid KS, Holmes GB, Lin J, Lee S Abstract BACKGROUND: Total hip and knee arthroplasty (THA and TKA) are performed more commonly than total ankle arthroplasty (TAA), so patients and the orthopaedic community are more familiar with the likelihood of complications after THA and TKA than after TAA. The present study places early complication rates after TAA in the context of those after THA and TKA. METHODS: Patients who underwent TAA, THA, or TKA during 2006 to 2016 as part of the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program were identified. Multivariate regression was used to com...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Remimazolam is a new ultra-short-acting benzodiazepine currently being developed for intravenous use in procedural sedation, general anaesthesia, and intensive care unit sedation. Benzodiazepines represent a drug class associated...

Hey everyone,So I am one year out of fellowship. I wasnt happy with my current practice (>80% personal/auto injury ) and they proposed a large pay cut due to covid which I wasn't willing to accept. The pain job market in my area is very saturated and the hiring environment is not the best due to covid. I am going back to Anesthesia for at least a year until I figure out my next move. The salary and benefits are great for the time being and it was hard to turn down. Any advice as far as... Going back to Anesthesia, any advice?
Geriatric patients are not just older adult patients. Aging brings about unique physiologic, psychological, and sociologic changes within individuals. Recognition of these unique characteristics and measuring for their impact; instituting mitigating strategies; using age-specific anesthetic measures; and performing a systematic, algorithmic care model in the postoperative period overseen by a multidisciplinary team brings about enhanced outcomes and improved quality of care for this expanding group of patients.
Conclusions: ARCB is a versatile and practical Tx choice. It is an effective delaying method in sparing time until surgery with no apparent cardiopulmonary compromise. Curve control was most effective in Idiopathic patients while some curve control was achieved in other etiologies which may have spared time until their eventual surgery. Significance: Cast Tx without the need of general anesthesia is an increasingly important topic since anesthesia toxicity from its repetitive use has become apparent. This study exemplifies safe and efficacious use of such cast with effective suppression on cast progression in differen...
Conclusions: The expandable rib-based distraction device is an effective method to treat severe congenital scoliosis in very young children. It can control the deformity and promotes spinal and thoracic growth. Level of Evidence: Level IV.
