BACKGROUND: Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) has become a standard technique for critically ill patients who require long-term ventilation. The most common early post-operative complication is bleeding related to anatomical variation in vasculature. The procedure is performed at the patient's bedside unless this is deemed unsafe and then the accepted alternative is open tracheostomy in the operating room. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the use of pre-procedural ultrasound to aid in the decision of whether PDT in critical care patients should be performed at the patient's bedside or by open surgical tracheostomy...

Meditation is an increasingly popular psychobehavioral therapy. Various meditation techniques in use make it hard to objectively scrutinize the psychological benefits. Therefore, in this study we set out to examine the effects of two fundamentally different meditative techniques, Zazen, 'seated meditation', in which the body and mind are calmed, and Tai Chi, 'meditation in motion', based on energetic martial art performance. The aim was to compare the effects of both techniques on personality structure, emotional intelligence, mood, and coping with stress...

REVIEW
Nicole Endlich, Florian Siegerist, Karlhans Endlich
Podocytes, the postmitotic and highly branched epithelial cells of the glomerulus, play a pivotal role for the function of the glomerular filtration barrier and the development of chronic kidney disease. It has long been discussed whether podocytes in vivo are motile and can laterally migrate in a coordinated way along the capillaries until they reach the position of naked glomerular basement membrane often found in podocytopathies. Such motility would also be the prerequisite for the replacement of lost podocytes by progenitor cells...

PURPOSE: This study evaluated the repair integrity and patient clinical outcomes following arthroscopic rotator cuff repair of medium to large rotator cuff tears using a single-row technique consisting of medially based, triple-loaded anchors augmented with bone marrow vents in the rotator cuff footprint lateral to the repair. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 52 patients (53 shoulders) comprising 36 males and 16 females with a median age of 62 (range 44-82) with more than 24-month follow-up, tears between 2 and 4 cm in the anterior-posterior dimension and utilizing triple-loaded anchors...

BACKGROUND: Computer navigation-assisted surgery for musculoskeletal tumors has shown to reduce the risk of intra-lesional margins in resection. Experiences with this method are still limited to smaller case series. METHOD: We reviewed our first experiences in 24 patients in whom computer navigation-assisted surgery had been performed. In 7 of these patients (6 male and 1 female), this has influenced the surgical treatment plan and navigation was used for both tumor resection and reconstruction...

A Halmagyi, E Surducan, V Surducan
Two distinct microwave power levels and techniques have been studied in two cases: low-power microwave (LPM) irradiation on in vitro Sequoia plants and high-power microwave (HPM) exposure on recovery rates of cryostored (-196°C) Sequoia shoot apices. Experimental variants for LPM exposure included: (a) in vitro plants grown in regular conditions (at 24 ± 1°C during a 16-h light photoperiod with a light intensity of 39.06 μEm(-2) s(-1) photosynthetically active radiation), (b) in vitro plants grown in the anechoic chamber with controlled environment without microwave irradiation, and (c) in vitro plants grown in the anechoic chamber with LPM irradiation for various times (5, 15, 30, 40 days)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Animal models using rodents are frequently used for the purpose of practicing microvascular anastomosis - an essential technique in cerebrovascular surgery. However, safely and efficiently exposing rat's target vessels is technically difficult. Such difficulty may lead to excessive hemorrhage and shorten animal survival. This limits the ability to perform multiple anastomoses on a single animal and may increase the overall training time and costs. We report our model for microsurgical bypass training in rodents in two consecutive articles...

BACKGROUND: Direct carotid-cavernous sinus fistulas (CCF) are high flow arteriovenous shunts that are typically the result of a severe head injury. The endovascular treatment of these lesions includes the use of detachable balloons, coils, liquid embolic agents, and covered stents. To minimize the chance of treatment failure and subsequent complications, endoluminal reconstruction using a flow-diverting stent may be added to the treatment construct . METHODS: We present 3 cases and review the existing literature...

OBJECTIVE: Proficient open surgical treatment of cerebral aneurysms requires extensive training and practice. The goal of this study was to test the validity of a human placenta aneurysm model for surgical simulation training of aneurysm clipping. METHODS: Thirty participants were divided into 3 groups (n=10 per group) according to their neurosurgical experience: low experience, intermediate experience, and attending. Subjective measures were collected using the Aneurysm Clipping Participant Survey (n=27)...

We describe a series of 4 patients with complex femoral pseudoaneuryms including short, wide necks that were successfully managed with a combination of proximal endovascular balloon occlusion and percutaneous thrombin injection. Contralateral femoral access was used to place an occlusion balloon proximal to or across the lesion and thrombin was injected directly into the pseudoaneurysm under ultrasound guidance. All patients recovered from their procedures without incident and are free from recurrence at follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: The principal objective of this study was to determine the evolution of the surgical management of stenosis of the carotid bifurcation over a period of 10 years in France. The secondary objective was to ascertain the impact of recommendations and of the literature on the evolution of these practices. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From the registry of the 'Agence Technique de l'Information sur l'Hospitalisation (ATIH)', we collected all of the data for carotid surgery procedures carried out in French healthcare establishments between 2006 and 2015...

We present a series of 4 patients with carotid restenosis following carotid endarterectomy (CEA) who underwent transcervical carotid artery stenting (CAS) using a novel prosthetic conduit technique. The patients were high risk for repeat CEA (short and obese necks) and had contraindications to transfemoral CAS (Bovine arch, prior dissection). Carotid artery stenting was thus performed via a transcervical approach with a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) conduit anastomosed to the proximal common carotid artery (CCA)...

OBJECTIVE: Smoking rates have declined, however it remains the primary modifiable risk factor for vascular disease. While vascular surgeons often advise patients to quit, few provide assistance. We sought to understand patients' interest in quitting and determine factors that influence this willingness to quit. METHODS: Anonymous surveys were given to vascular surgery clinic patients in a single institution over a 5-month period. Demographic information, smoking status, cessation attempts, and barriers to quitting were obtained...

Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunting of cerebrospinal fluid is one of the most common procedures performed by neurosurgeons around the world. Migration of distal VP shunt catheter into bilateral segmental pulmonary arteries is an extremely rare complication of VP shunt placement. In present case, a 30-year-old male underwent VP shunting complicated by migration of distal VP shunt catheter into the bilateral pulmonary arteries. Despite manual attempt at externalizing the distal VP shunt catheter at the level of the clavicle, a small piece of distal VP shunt catheter in bilateral pulmonary arteries was noted on CT chest obtained following manual externalization...
