New microvascular anastomotic device for end-to-side anastomosis using negative pressure; a preliminary study.

New microvascular anastomotic device for end-to-side anastomosis using negative pressure; a preliminary study. J Plast Surg Hand Surg. 2020 Feb 24;:1-5 Authors: Tachi K, Furukawa KS, Koshima I, Ushida T Abstract We previously developed a device for end-to-end anastomosis powered by negative pressure and demonstrated that using the device allow the operator to anastomose semi-automatically with little stress. Here, we sought to build a device for and demonstrate that negative pressure can also be used in end-to-side anastomosis which is clinically popular as end-to-end anastomosis through animal experiment using rats.The devices were constructed with a laser lithographic/3D-printing machine. Nine SD rats were used. Each of the nine rats underwent end-to-side anastomosis between the superficial epigastric vein and the femoral vein using the device. Rat was anesthetized one week later and the anastomotic site was inspected through operative microscope for patency. The anastomotic site was harvested with the device and the rat was euthanized. The anastomotic site was embedded in epon, sectioned, stained with toluidine blue, and analyzed with light microscopy. Eight of the nine anastomoses were patent immediately after the procedures, and two of the nine were patent at 1 week after the procedures. In the failed cases, the vessels dislocated from the device because the clamps loosened during the observation period after the operation. The experiments hav...

Authors: Best MJ, Aziz KT, Nayar SK, Patten IS, Bansal A, Huish E, Srikumaran U Abstract Objectives: Smoking has been associated with poor cuff healing and worse long-term outcomes in patients undergoing rotator cuff repair. The effects of smoking on short-term complications following open rotator cuff repair are not well defined. The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of smoking on 30-day outcomes following open rotator cuff repair.Methods: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program was used to identify patients who underwent open rotator cuff repair from 2011 to 20...

Amid a shortage of medical-grade face masks, such as surgical masks (loose-fitting, disposable masks that block large droplets but don’t filter small particles) and N95 respirators (tight-fitting face coverings that filter out small particles), the U.S. federal government recently changed its recommendations, suggesting now that all residents wear homemade facial coverings when they have to go out. That’s a marked difference from previous federal guidance that recommended only sick people or those caring for someone who is sick wear face masks. According to newly updated guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Di...

Thoughts on the following case: Morbidly obese patient in ICU, thick neck+Covid, respiratory failure, high vent settings (20 PEEP, 70% FiO2). Called by ICU attending to exchange ETT because it becomes kinked when turning the patient prone, and randomly when turning the patient's head in certain directions when supine. Patient also with severe angioedema of the tongue, which is protruding several centimeters from the mouth, firm, immobile, making access to the oropharynx impossible. Patient...

Sinapic Acid Ameliorates Oxidative Stress, Inflammation, and Apoptosis in Acute Doxorubicin-Induced Cardiotoxicity via the NF-κB-Mediated Pathway. Biomed Res Int. 2020;2020:3921796 Authors: Bin Jardan YA, Ansari MA, Raish M, Alkharfy KM, Ahad A, Al-Jenoobi FI, Haq N, Khan MR, Ahmad A Abstract In the present study, we explored SA's activity against DOX-induced cardiotoxicity and revealed its underlying mechanisms. Male Wistar rats (weight, 190-210g; n = 6) were randomly divided into four groups: group I, normal control; group II, DOX 15 mg/kg via intraperitoneal (ip) route; group III, admi...
