BACKGROUND: Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a complex endeavor involving both motor and cognitive skills. Current training requires extended time in the clinical setting. Application of an integrated approach for TEE training including simulation could facilitate acquisition of skills and knowledge. METHODS: Echo-naive nonattending anesthesia physicians were offered Web-based echo didactics and biweekly hands-on sessions with a TEE simulator for 4 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: The authors evaluated the educational benefits of using a first-generation HeartWorks simulator to teach senior anesthesiology residents basic echocardiography skills. DESIGN: Prospective observational study. SETTING: A single academic medical center (teaching hospital). PARTICIPANTS: Thirty-seven senior (fourth-year) anesthesiology residents participated in this study. INTERVENTIONS: Groups of 3 senior anesthesiology residents participated in a single 3-hour tutorial in the simulation laboratory in the authors' institution during their cardiothoracic anesthesiology rotation...

SESSION TYPE: Cardiovascular Case Report PostersPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Pulmonary veno-occlusive disease (PVOD) is an uncommon variant of primary pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) and is a rare but fatal complication of hematopoeitic stem cell transplant (HSCT). It often goes unrecognized antemortem.CASE PRESENTATION: 63-year-old man with history of Burkitt's lymphoma s/p chemotherapy in 2003 followed by autologous HSCT in 2005. In January 2011, he was diagnosed with MDS and received chemotherapy followed by an allogeneic HSCT...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
V Sharma, C Chamos, O Valencia, M Meineri, S N Fletcher
With the increasing role of transoesophageal echocardiography in clinical fields other than cardiac surgery, we decided to assess the efficacy of multi-modular echocardiography learning in echo-naïve anaesthetic trainees. Twenty-eight trainees undertook a pre-test to ascertain basic echocardiography knowledge, following which the study subjects were randomly assigned to two groups: learning via traditional methods such as review of guidelines and other literature (non-internet group); and learning via an internet-based echocardiography resource (internet group)...

OBJECTIVE: Ultrasonography is in continuing expansion in anesthesiology and critical care medicine (ACCM). It is an operator-dependent tool whose contribution is partly related to the quality of the user's initial and subsequent training. Within the framework of the ACCM residency, the French north-east anesthesiology residents have an initiation to ultrasonography by 24 hours of formal lectures. The evaluation of this teaching has not yet been performed. The objective of this survey is to depict this learning and delineate the expectations of the residents...

INTRODUCTION: The rate of attempted vaginal birth after previous cesarean delivery has decreased, while the success rate of such births increased. Advances in surgical techniques, the development of anesthesiology services, particularly endotracheal anesthesia, very quality postoperative care with cardiovascular, respiratory and biochemical resuscitation, significantly reduce maternal mortality and morbidity after cesarean section. Progress and development of neonatal services, and intensive care of newborns is enabled and a high survival of newborn infants...

Spontaneous cholecystocutaneous fistula is a rare complication of chronic calculous cholecystitis because currently gallstones are diagnosed and treated at an early stage. This occurrence is possible even if it seems actually to be rare. We report the case of a 90-year-old woman admitted to our hospital with diarrhea of 4 days duration and low-grade fever (37.5°C). On physical examination, she had a 10 × 10 cm erythematous swelling and discomfort of the upper right abdominal quadrant; the skin and mucosae were dry...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (DD) is defined as the inability of the ventricle to fill to a normal end-diastolic volume, both during exercise as well as at rest, while left atrial pressure does not exceed 12 mm Hg. We examined the concept of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in a cardiac surgery setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Literature review was carried out in order to identify the overall experience of an important and highly underestimated issue: the unexpected adverse outcome due to ventricular stiffness, following cardiac surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Echocardiographic images were integrated into patient simulation (PS)-based resident training with a goal of highlighting the applicability and limitations of pure pressure-based measurements in the management of different disease states. METHODS: Relevant echocardiographic images were selected, categorized, and sequenced to best represent specific hemodynamic changes and incorporated into a Powerpoint slideshow. Appropriate PS scenarios were then created to represent the hemodynamic changes seen with the selected pathophysiologic states...

During the more desperate years of the Great Depression a group of physicians brought an injunction proceeding against Dagmar Nelson and her employing hospital for illegally practicing medicine without a license. She administered general anesthesia and her employer knew it and supported her. It was a bizarre trial in that the arguments presented by both sides seem incongruous to our way of thinking today. The evidence presented at the trial echoed the predominant view at the time--the undisputed dominance of the male physician over the female nurse, who was portrayed, even by the defense, as only an extension of the surgeon who "has the power and therefore the responsibility" to control the surgery...

Until recently, more than 2200 Swan Ganz catheters were used annually in the operating rooms (OR) and intensive care unit (ICU) of the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. After cardiologists who were specialists in echocardiography (ECHO) trained anesthesiologists in ECHO, the need for these catheters in cardiac and noncardiac surgery was reduced. Initially intended as a local teaching project, an ECHO teaching compact disk (CD) was produced during the training and distributed later worldwide, thanks to a positive review in a major anesthesiology publication...

PURPOSE: Epidural cannulation is a difficult technique in the patient undergoing scoliosis repair, due to axial rotation of the vertebral bodies, as well as angulation of the spinal processes. This case series was performed to investigate whether ultrasonography could facilitate epidural insertion in patients with scoliosis, by assessing the degree of vertebral body rotation. CLINICAL FEATURES: Eleven patients scheduled for corrective scoliosis surgery were studied...

UNLABELLED: Artifacts in MR Imaging due to ventilation tubes. PURPOSE: MR examinations may be necessary in patients under artificial ventilation. Possible imaging artifacts originating from ventilation tubing made from silicone are demonstrated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In silicone carbohydrate residues are bound to silicon atoms. In silicone gels they give strong signals in MR imaging. MR signals from more solid silicone rubber are only possible if the carbohydrate residues in the molecular chain retain a sufficient mobility...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to define a correct anesthesiological and surgical approach in patient who present a significant carotid stenosis with contralateral carotid occlusion. METHODS: Between 1996 and 1998 in our Department of Vascular Surgery of the Hospital S. Giovanni Battista has been executed 337 Carotid Endoarterectomies (CEA). Of these, 44 patient (13%) had a contralateral internal carotid occlusion. Forty was male (91%), and 4 female (9%)...

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is nowadays proposed as elective treatment in acute cholecystitis; the advantages obtained with this method are comparable with those of laparoscopic cholecystectomy outside inflammatory complications. Moreover in emergency we have the advantage of better diagnostic definition and less surgical trauma. When acute cholecystitis affects high risk patients from the anesthesiologic view percutaneous US-assisted cholecystostomy is considered more valuable than the medical conservative treatment...
