Authors: Vigueras Smith A, Cabrera R, Kondo W, Ferreira H Abstract The present review aims to analyse the current data available on the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of the minimally invasive surgical (MIS) treatment of diaphragmatic endometriosis (DE). Through the use of PubMed and Google Scholar database, we conducted a literature review of all available research related to diagnosis and treatment of DE, focussed on the minimally invasive techniques.

Objectives: Determine the intra-tidal regional gas and blood volume distributions at different levels of atelectasis in experimental lung injury. Test the hypotheses that pulmonary aeration and blood volume matching is reduced during inspiration in the setting of minimal tidal recruitment/derecruitment and that this mismatching is an important determinant of hypoxemia. Design: Preclinical study. Setting: Research laboratory. Subjects: Seven anesthetized pigs 28.7 kg (sd, 2.1 kg). Interventions: All animals received a saline-lavage surfactant depletion lung injury model. Positive end-expiratory pressure was va...

By GREG HAMMER, MD Burnout among healthcare professionals is at an all-time high. Its drivers include longer work hours, the push to see more patients, more scrutiny by administrators, and loss of control over our practice. We seem to spend more time with the electronic medical record and less time face-to-face with our patients. I have faced burnout personally. My son passed away at the age of 29, which was beyond painful. At the same time, I felt burdened by the growing number and complexity of metrics by which I was judged at work. Days in the operating room and intensive care unit seemed more and more exhausting,...

CONCLUSIONS: No complications occurred in the intraoperative period and during the months of follow-up. There has been no recurrence of the starting problem and all treated patients were free from residual maxillary pathology 18 months after surgery. Four works meeting the inclusion criteria were identified. The surgical fenestrated approach to the maxillary sinus is a valid alternative to the classical Caldwell-Luc techniques that, alone or in combination with endoscopic sinus surgery, allow to treat foreign bodies of maxillary sinus, of mucoceles and other diseases of the maxillary sinus. The proposed technique does not ...

Hi all, Had a situation come up where a skinny 71 year old woman without much else going on medically who was getting rotator cuff repair with subacromial decompression. She planned to get a ride home with her neighbor but not have them stay with her, stating "my neighbor is just a call away." Surgeon is cool with this arrangement from his standpoint. Now I typically do interscalenes with just about every shoulder operation but I decided it as contraindicated in this patient because she... Ambulatory regional anesthesia and support person

Subacromial analgesia (SAA) is hypothesized to reduce pain after arthroscopic shoulder surgery by delivering a continuous infusion of local anesthetic directly to the surgical site. The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy of SAA vs. placebo for pain relief after arthroscopic subacromial shoulder procedures.
