CONCLUSIONS: More neonatal surgeries (491 vs. 74 patients) were performed than those in the past (1984-1999). The surgical outcomes were much better than before. Our surgical outcomes revealed that the Republic of Korea has been transformed from a country receiving help to a country that helps other low socioeconomic status countries.

This article considers the challenges that would need to be overcome in terms of the morphology of the condition, the age limitations, and t he necessary technological advancements that would be required—while setting these against the benchmark of current surgical outcomes and the parallel progress that is being developed in surgical correction. While complete interventional repair of ToF may still be beyond current techniques, a hybr id approach between surgeons and intentional cardiologists can strive to create a life-long paradigm of care that minimizes the need for surgery and focuses on the maintenance of ...

We present a case of a 61-year-old man with the diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder, clinical stage IV (T4bN1M1), complicated with an ileo-recal-urethrocutaneous fistula. We reconstructed a massive defect of the abdominal wall by rotating bilateral pedicled TFL flaps. The therapeutic plan comprised 2 surgical procedures. The first surgical intervention was intended to obtain and temporarily fix the flap, and to allow the delay phenomenon to occur. Three weeks later, we performed the abdominal wall reconstruction by repositioning the bilateral TFL flaps and placing a dual prolene with regenerated oxidized ce...

We report our experience with bidirectional Glenn shunt placement as a palliative procedure for complex congenitally corrected transposition. We retrospectively identified 50 consecutive patients who had been diagnosed with congenitally corrected transposition accompanied by left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and ventricular septal defect and who had then undergone palliative bidirectional Glenn shunt placement at our institution from January 2005 through December 2014. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to subsequent surgeries: Fontan completion (total cavopulmonary connection, 13 patients) (group 1), a...

Ferraris, Michael WinklerAbstractEndobronchial stenting is a well-established palliative approach in lung cancer patients with airway obstruction secondary to tumor burden. However, endobronchial stenting can be complicated by stent erosion into adjacent vessels. While most cases of endobronchial stent related hemoptysis can be treated by stent revision and/or surgical resection, here, we present a case managed by endovascular pulmonary arterial stent placement as a last resort option in the m...

Abstract Endobronchial stenting is a well-established palliative approach in lung cancer patients with airway obstruction secondary to tumor burden. However, endobronchial stenting can be complicated by stent erosion into adjacent vessels. While most cases of endobronchial stent related hemoptysis can be treated by stent revision and/or surgical resection, here, we present a case managed by endovascular pulmonary arterial stent placement as a last resort option in the management of an iatrogenic bronchovascular fistula in a non-surgical candidate.

This study aimed to compare the prophylactic effects of intravenous (IV) dexamethasone and lidocaine on hemodynamic condition, respiratory complications, pain control, and vomit incidence following cleft palate repair surgery. This double-blind randomized controlled trial was carried out on 87 children assigned to three groups. Prior to anesthesia, subjects in groups D and L received 0.2 and 1 mg/kg IV dexamethasone and lidocaine, respectively. Moreover, group C received placebo in a similar condition. The outcome variables were recorded prior to the surgery and then every 15 minutes during the surgical and r...

Conclusion: Ketamine along with low-dose fentanyl, when used for anesthetic induction, in comparison to high-dose fentanyl, reduces postoperative extubation time and ICU stay, in pediatric patients undergoing corrective/palliative surgery under CPB and epidural analgesia for congenital cardiac defects.

Advancements in surgical interventions, specifically the newer biventricular valve replacement, for babies born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome have increased the survival rate of this otherwise fatal congenital deformity. For those interested in surgical intervention, patients are lucky to have this option, although not all babies are candidates for this surgery. Survival rates must remain only a part of the conversation, as there are significant lifelong medical needs/risks for these babies, including neurologic and developmental disabilities. Medical factors are only part of the story. The out-of-pocket costs for t...

In this study, by adenovirus-mediated delivery and inducible transgenic mouse models, we demonstrate the proliferation of both HCs and SCs by combined Notch1 and Myc activation in in vitro and in vivo inner ear adult mouse models. These proliferating mature SCs and HCs maintain their respective identities. Moreover, when presented with HC induction signals, reprogrammed adult SCs transdifferentiate into HC-like cells both in vitro and in vivo. Finally, our data suggest that regenerated HC-like cells likely possess functional transduction channels and are able to form connections with adult auditory neurons. Epige...
