bleeding AND tunneled pleural catheter

Seung Kwon Kim, Bryan G Belikoff, Carlos J Guevara, Seong Jin Park
We propose an algorithm for management after transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) placement according to clinical manifestations. For patients with an initial good clinical response, surveillance Doppler ultrasound is recommended to detect stenosis or occlusion. A TIPS revision can be performed using basic or advanced techniques to treat stenosis or occlusion. In patients with an initial poor clinical response, a TIPS venogram with pressure measurements should be performed to assess shunt patency...

This article focuses on the role of interventional radiology in the therapeutic and diagnostic management of benign and malignant gynecologic conditions. The subspecialty of interventional radiology utilizes minimally invasive advanced image-guided percutaneous techniques in gynecology that include central venous catheter placement, fluid aspiration, drainage catheter placement, tissue biopsy, inferior vena cava filter placement, and pelvic arterial embolization. Central venous catheters, such as ports, peripherally inserted central catheters, and tunneled catheters, are placed for intermediate to long-term intravenous chemotherapy or total parental nutrition or antibiotics...

AIM: Blind peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter instrumentation with a Tenckhoff trocar is performed without direct visualization of the peritoneum. This method requires the least equipment, it is safe and it can be performed mainly by nephrologists. We report here on our long-term experience with this method as performed by nephrologists. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records at Yeungnam University Hospital in Korea and identified all the patients who had undergone blind PD catheter instrumentation with a Tenckhoff trocar by nephrologists...

UNLABELLED: Ambulatory peritoneal dialysis is an alternative to haemo dialysis for patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). This study evaluates our experience in laparoscopic placement of Tenckhoff Catheter (TC) for peritoneal dialysis. METHODS: Between december 2000 and december 2007 in the II Surgical Clinic of Timisoara the laparoscopic implantation of the Tenckhoff catheter was performed in a lot of 56 patients with ESRD with mean age 53.04 years (limit between 17-80 years)...

OBJECTIVES: Results of Fontan's procedure have improved considerably, but perioperative mortality still occurs, attributed to ventricular dysfunction, stroke, arrhythmia, thromboembolism, and multi-organ dysfunction. Our protocols of operative and intensive care unit management address these potential issues, and have been associated with zero mortality, even with many high-risk candidates. METHODS: From 1996 to 2006, all Fontan patients were managed as follows: operative strategy based on aortic and single atrial cannulation, cooling on full-flow bypass, and hypothermic circulatory arrest to create the Fontan pathway...
