Removal of the Tumor Thrombus from the Right Atrium without Extracorporeal Circulation: Emphasis on the Displacement of the Tumor Apex.
Conclusion: Our work represents the initial experience in the liver transplantation technique for thrombectomy in distinct and well-selected patients with atrial tumor thrombi. The effectiveness of this approach needs further study. The video presentation of our research took place in March 2019 at the 34th Annual EAU Congress in Barcelona. PMID: 32612649 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: Although not currently utilized with frequency, these preliminary data indicate that placing both a dual lumen dialysis catheter and central venous infusion catheter in the right internal jugular simultaneously could be a viable option.

ConclusionsThe clinical outcomes of 10 patients who underwent TES for spinal metastatic LMS were favorable without severe complications. Postoperative disability was significantly associated with short-term survival after TES.
ConclusionsDespite these benefits, port catheters are associated with various complications. However, most of these complications can be effectively prevented by proper techniques and easily applied precautions.
This study will evaluate the clinical impact of multi-organ POCUS in internal medicine patients admitted with cardiopulmonary diagnosis on the hospital length of stay. Recruitment of participants commenced in September 2018 and is estimated to be completed by March 2020.Trial registrationAustralian and New Zealand Clinical Trial Registry,ACTRN12618001442291. Registered on 28 August 2018.
ConclusionsMS is a safe and feasible procedure and results in less thrombosis. MS may play an important role in improving outcomes for the implantation of TAVID.
Conclusions: The use TICVAP for the patients on new MDR-TB regimens with long term IV infusions demonstrates good safety profile and high level of patients and HCP acceptability.
Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases
AbstractCentral venous port devices are indicated for patients, who need long-term intravenous therapy. Oncologic patients may require intermittent administration of chemotherapy, parenteral nutrition, infusions, or blood transfusions. A venous port system is composed of a port chamber attached to a central catheter, which is implanted into the central venous system. The subcutaneous location of the catheter chamber improves the patients ’ quality of life and the infection rate is lower than in non-totally implantable central venous devices. However, proper implantation, use, and care of a port system are important t...
BY ALI OZCAN, MD; AYUSH GUPTA, MD; ISABEL NEACATO, MD; DAVID DONALDSON, DO; &SHANNA JONES, MDA 17-year-old boy presented to the pediatric emergency department complaining of a right shoulder injury and right clavicular pain for two hours. The pain started after he checked another player into the boards while playing hockey. He had no head injury, loss of consciousness, or other trauma. He took 600 mg of ibuprofen with no relief, so he came to the ED.He had no past medical or surgical problems, and reported his pain as 4/10 over the clavicle region. His review of system was otherwise negative. The patient's vitals we...
This study had afatal flaw: they did not keep track of all the Non-STEMI patients who were NOT enrolled, but instead were sent for immediate angiogram. It was done in Europe, where the guidelines suggest taking all shockable arrests emergently to the cath lab. So it is highly likely that physicians were very reluctant to enroll patients; they did not want them to be randomized to no angiogram. This strong suspicion is supported by their data:only 22 of 437 (5.0%) patients in this study had OMI.What percent of shockable arrests without STE have an OMI? This large registry in Circulatio...
