Authors: Terboven T, Heblich LA, Weiß C, Viergutz T, Rudolph M, Waldeck S, Schönberg S, Overhoff D Abstract Objectives: Needle decompression of tension pneumothorax in children is a rarely encountered but potentially life-saving procedure, that is accompanied by a certain risk of injury. We evaluated the nipple as a landmark for an alternative anterior insertion site and as an aid in localizing lateral insertion sites, as well as its influence on the safety profile of the procedure. Methods: In thoracic computer tomography scans of children aged 0-10 years, the distance to the closest vital structure was...

AbstractEndoscopic Sinus Surgery is evolving day by day, there is a constant need for improvisation in terms of instrumentation with clear bloodless surgical field and good postoperative results. The applications of Dr. Ahila ’s Conchal Crusher for managing Concha bullosa in Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery  (FESS) Surgery are presented. The creation/innovation of Dr. Ahila’s conchal crusher will prevent raw mucosal surface area, bleeding and scope fogging with blood during FESS surgery after traditional conchop lasty. This new instrument makes it easy to reduce concha bullosa during nose and sinus...

Nasogastric and orogastric tubes (NG/OGT) are commonly used in emergency and critical care settings, with indications including medicinal administration, gastric decompression, and enteral feeding. Previous studies have highlighted a variety of complications associated with tube placement. These range from minor occurrences such as nose bleeds and sinusitis, to more severe cases highlighting tracheobronchial perforation, tube knotting, asphyxia, pulmonary aspiration, pneumothorax, and even intracranial insertion.
