ConclusionsPillar suture combined with tonsillectomy may reduce postoperative bleeding incidence despite increasing pillar edema in pediatric tonsillectomy. Postoperative pain-relief, palatal hematoma, palatal discomfort sensation, site infection, and velopharyngeal insufficiency were not significantly altered compared to tonsillectomy alone. However, further studies are needed to corroborate the results of this study.ResumoIntroduçãoDiversas técnicas cirúrgicas têm sido utilizadas na tonsilectomia no intuito de reduzir complicações.ObjetivosAvaliar os efeitos da sutura dos p...

Conclusion: It may be employed either alone or in combination with cryotherapy, existing chemotherapy, bypass surgery or radiations to achieve the optimal results in these patients. Nevertheless, there is a need to formulate a uniform dose and procedure to achieve homogeneity and develop references for clinical practices. PMID: 31977258 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Ashour AS, Dey N, Mohamed WS, Tromp JG, Sherratt RS, Shi F, Moraru L Abstract Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE) is a highly promising technology for gastrointestinal (GI) tract abnormality diagnosis. However, low image resolution and low frame rates are challenging issues in WCE. In addition, the relevant frames containing the features of interest for accurate diagnosis only constitute 1% of the complete video information. For these reasons, analyzing the WCE videos is still a time consuming and laborious examination for the gastroenterologists, which reduces WCE system usability. This leads to the emergent...

ConclusionsThis is the largest series to date reporting>30-day follow-up for patients undergoing venous ablation procedures while receiving anticoagulation and the longest follow-up reported of any series. Durability, safety, and efficacy of vein ablation in patients receiving anticoagulation are comparable to those in control patients. Anticoagulation should not be considered a contraindication to endothermal ablation of the GSV or SSV for symptomatic venous reflux.

Material and methods: The analysis concerned 343 patients treated in the years 2001-2012. The effect on local recurrence of such factors as patient's sex, age, tumour size, shape, pigmentation, location, presence of orange pigment or petechiae on tumour surface, retinal detachment, and blood or dispersed pigment in vitreous body were studied.

Early diagnosis and shunt placement can improve outcomes. Herein, we examined the incidence of and predictors of PTH after craniectomy.MethodsA retrospective analysis of prospectively collected database of severe TBI patients at a single U.S. Level 1 trauma center from May 200...

Conclusion: Bleeding occurred in 20% of AML at presentation. In patients selected for AS, we found a very low risk of bleeding in sporadic AML justifying our cut off size of 50 mm to trigger intervention. In TSC-associated AML individually tailored follow-up is needed due to a higher intervention rate. PMID: 31971051 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We describe a method which is safe and reproducible.It is not uncommon for the right ventricular perforation to occur during dissection for exposure of intra myocardial left anterior descending artery (LAD) as a part of coronary artery bypass grafting and in unroofing procedure for myocardial bridging.This complication is likely to develop when the dissection is kept to the right side of anterior descending artery. The right ventricular cavity comes closest to the LAD in the intramyocardial portion separated only by thin layer of muscle and endothelium. Several techniques are in vogue for dealing with this potentially seri...
