INTRODUCTION: An early extubation in cardiac surgery (fast track cardiac anaesthesia) refers to mechanical ventilation during 1-6 hours after the intervention, the extubation criteria being the same as for any other surgery.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty-five consecutive patients scheduled for OPCAB surgery, who were planned for very fast track cardiac anaesthesia (planned extubation within one hour after the end of the operation), were included in the study...

Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection is one of the leading causes of death from communicable diseases worldwide. However, the incidence of leaking thoracic aortic tuberculous pseudoaneurysms is rare as a complication. Conventional treatment of a leaking tuberculous pseudoaneurysm involves surgery with graft interposition or patch repair. With the emergence of stent graft treatment as a viable option for leaking pseudoaneurysms, we report a 63-year-old man who had his leaking toracic aortic tuberculous pseudoaneurysm treated with endovascular stent grafting...

The rib hump is a protrusion of the apicals ribs of the convex side of the toracic scoliosis and it is due to the torsional deformity that appears in scoliosis. It originates a great cosmetic deformity that although improves with the correction of the scoliosis, it appears again by the costal elasticity. For this reason, in cases of important deformity it is necessary to associate a costoplasty for its definitive improvement. 10 cases of Idiopatic Scoliosis with 75.5 degrees of average and rib hump of 22.1 degrees were analysed...
