Complications of Arthroscopic Versus Open Biceps Tenodesis in the Setting of Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repairs: An Analysis of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery Database.

Complications of Arthroscopic Versus Open Biceps Tenodesis in the Setting of Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repairs: An Analysis of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery Database. J Am Acad Orthop Surg. 2019 Nov 05;: Authors: Yeung M, Shin JJ, Lesniak BP, Lin A Abstract INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to compare complication rates between arthroscopic versus open biceps tenodesis in the setting of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and to determine the effect of fellowship training on complication rates. METHODS: The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery database was used to identify cases of arthroscopic and open biceps tenodesis in the setting of rotator cuff repair between 2012 and 2016. Surgical, medical, and anesthetic complications, location, fellowship training, surgery year, and patient demographic data were recorded. Overall and specific complication rates were calculated and analyzed. Chi-square or Fisher exact tests were used to determine statistical significance. RESULTS: Altogether, 1,725 cases of arthroscopic biceps tenodesis and 1,637 cases of open biceps tenodesis with arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were analyzed. No significant difference was found between overall complication rates between arthroscopic (11.4%) versus open (13.1%) biceps tenodesis (P = 0.14). Although open tenodesis had statistically significant higher rates of wound healing issues (0.7% versus 0.2%, P = 0.02), hematoma/seroma formation (0.5% versus 0.1...

ConclusionsWe established a novel formula to mathematically calculate actual 3D angles between inflow cannula and device body of HeartMate II. The formula would help investigators to validate their findings of the relationship between 2D projected angle (from CXR) and device thrombosis.

The objectives of this study were to compare in-hospital outcomes of repair versus ligation of isolated PVI, as well as to determine nonvascular factors associated with worse outcomes.MethodsPatients in the National Trauma Databank from 2007 to 2014 with at least one PVI were evaluated. First, patients with concomitant PVI and PAI were compared with patients with isolated PVI. Second, outcomes were compared between ligation and repair of isolated PVI. To limit the impact of concomitant injuries and focus on the impact of venous injury management, we defined isolated PVI as cases without concomitant PAI and with Abbreviated...

The objective of this study was to determine the rate of complications of catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) in cancer patients with deep venous thrombosis (DVT) compared with anticoagulation therapy alone.MethodsThis observational study used the National Inpatient Sample database to screen for any cancer patients who were admitted with a principal discharge diagnosis of proximal lower extremity or caval DVT between January 2005 and December 2013. Patients treated with CDT plus anticoagulation were compared with those treated with anticoagulation alone using propensity score matching for comorbidities and demographic cha...

ConclusionsThis novel percutaneous venous thrombectomy system is safe and effective for removing large volumes of lower extremity acute thrombus in a single session, without the need for lytic therapy, intensive care unit admission, or repeat intervention. Further studies are warranted to determine mid-term and long-term outcomes.

ConclusionsBased on our experience, in-stent restenosis followed by inflow lesions in the common femoral vein are the most common causes of stent thrombosis. These data suggest a need for future research to target these areas.

ConclusionsIVC reconstruction is a safe option for patients requiring IVC resection during oncologic surgery as evidenced by 1-year survival of 75% and 1-year primary patency approaching 90%. The overall rate of postoperative thrombus development was low and similar across all groups. In the management of primary and secondary retroperitoneal malignant disease with IVC infiltration, IVC reconstruction should be considered to achieve appropriate oncologic resection while minimizing possible complications from caval interruption.

Although the majority of papillary thyroid cancers (PTC) are indolent, a subset of PTCs behaves aggressively due to extensive invasion and distant metastasis. Integrin β4, a member of the integrin family, has been shown to enhance the progression in some malignancies; however, its role in PTC remains unclear. Here, we demonstrated that β4 overexpression was associated with extrathyroid extension, lymph node metastasis, high TNM stage, and poor overall survival based on The Cancer Genome Atlas cohort. Immunohistochemistry showed that β4 expression was significantly upregulated in the tumors with infiltrating ...
