Anaesthetic management of intraoperative tracheo-bronchial injury.

We report successful anaesthetic management of an accidental traumatic rupture of the left main bronchus during surgical dissection in an elderly lady of Carcinoma Oesophagus who underwent a Video Assisted Thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), and was managed by one lung ventilation of the contralateral (right) side manipulating the same DLT and lung protective ventilation.

This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT02108964); enrolment to phase 1 is complete and the study is ongoing.FindingsBy Aug 31, 2017, 180 patients (116 [64%] women; median age 60 years (52–69); 116 [64%] with ECOG performance status 1) received nazartinib across seven dose levels: 75 mg (n=17), 100 mg (n=38), 150 mg (n=73), 200 mg (n=8), 225 mg (n=28), 300 mg (n=5), and 350 mg (n=11). Seven dose-limiting toxicities were observed in six (3%) patients who received 150 mg, 225 mg, or 350 mg nazartinib once daily. Although the maximum tolerated dose was not met, the recommended phase 2 dose was declared as 1...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPoint-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been widely adopted in the management of trauma patients by emergency and surgical specialists. Advances in technology, portability, and affordability have contributed to its exponential growth, particularly in the field of trauma anesthesia where ultrasound usage has steadfastly blossomed in recent years.Recent FindingsStudies and protocols have expanded beyond the oft-used focused assessment with sonography for trauma examination to include focused cardiac and lung examinations. POCUS may also be useful as an adjunct for airway management, vascular access, and...

AbstractA systematic review was conducted to provide an overview of the efficacy and safety of125I irradiation stent placement for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and main portal vein tumor thrombosis (MPVTT). Six studies with 406 patients were included in the final analysis. The median overall survival for patients treated with125I irradiation stent placement was 10.3  months. The most common radiation-related adverse event was leukopenia. The stent-related adverse events consisted of fever, abdominal pain, hemorrhage, and anorexia. No stent or seed migration was reported. Overall, the use of an125I irra...
