This prospective comparative study was conducted with an initial experience in the Department of Pediatric Surgery, Dhaka Shishu (Children) Hospital during the period of December 2007 to January 2009, with the infants of 2-12 weeks age, diagnosed as Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. Patients selection was done by simple random technique by means of lottery. For open pyloromyotomy conventional method & for laparoscopic pyloromyotomy three trocher techniques was applied. In this study, among 60 cases with infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, 30 cases were finally selected for analysis irrespectively both in laparoscopic (Group A) & in open pyloromyotomy (Group B) group...

An observational study on TachoSil® as used in the gall bladder surgery and an analysis of the experience obtained by employing a haemostatic agent in one of the most common procedures in general and visceral surgery have been carried out. The aim of the study was to answer the following questions. When is TachoSil® in routine use? Does TachoSil® have a positive effect on the perioperative course? Is TachoSil® suitable for the routine application in difficult cholecystectomy? In the present single-arm prospective cohort study only departments with specialisation in general and visceral surgery of 40 clinics in Germany participated...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Perioperative hypothermia is a frequent occurrence and can lead to several complications, which adversely affect the patient's outcome, expecially in high risk patient. Nonetheless, central temperature is not frequently monitored in the clinical routine. The aim of this work is to make the point on complications, monitoring techniques, prevention and treatment of mild perioperative hypothermia. METHODS: We reviewed literature on cardiovascular, haemorragic, infectious, and other clinical consequences of mild intraoperative hypothermia, epidemiology and techniques, of temperature monitoring and efficacy of different approaches for the prevention and treatment of mild hypothermia...

The liver is an essential player in the pathway of coagulation in both primary and secondary haemostasis. Only von Willebrand factor is not synthetised by the liver, thus liver failure is associated with impairment of coagulation. However, recently it has been shown that the delicate balance between pro and antithrombotic factors synthetised by the liver might be reset to a lower level in patients with chronic liver disease. Therefore, these patients might not be really anticoagulated in stable condition and bleeding may be caused only when additional factors, such as infections, supervene...

UNLABELLED: From October 1994 to November 1995, 150 male eligible patients were randomly assigned to Palmaz-Schatz stent implantation through 6 French catheters using the femoral (puncture) (n = 56), radial (puncture) (n = 56), or brachial (cutdown) (n = 38) approach at 6 participating Belgian centers. Acenocoumarol was given for 1 month after stenting. END POINTS: Primary-entry site complications (bleeding, haematoma, transfusion, occlusion, surgery) poststent implantation...

Ten patients with neurological complications (NC) among a retrospective series of 53 consecutive cases of infective endocarditis were studied: 6 males and 4 females, mean age 60 years. NC were present at admission in 6 cases: 2 generalized seizures, 4 strokes, associated with 2 meningeal syndromes. Four cases of NC occurred during hospitalization: 1 stroke with come, 1 transient ischaemic attack, 2 generalized seizures. Blood cultures were positive in 7 cases: 6 group D Streptococci, 1 Gram negative bacillus...

The authors report two cases of cardiac rupture during acute myocardial infarction successfully treated surgically. In the first case, rupture occurred 7 days after hospital admission for anteroseptal myocardial infarction. The patient developed sudden cardiogenic shock with signs of venous hypertension without left ventricular failure. The second patient was admitted for syncopal chest pain with transient hypotension which regressed after volume repletion and pressor amine therapy. On admission, the patient had signs of cardiac tamponade...

A description is given of a technique named "Protected Sleep", which produces a deep and residual analgesia and neurolepsia, without interfering with spontaneous respiration. A deep, stable and reliable neuroanesthesia is achieved by means of a partial pharmacodynamic blockage of the neuro-humoral reaction system. It is recognisable by the following features: 1 degree a smooth transition through pre-, per- and post-operative stages, avoiding in particular immediate awakening; 2 degrees a relative arterial hypotension, low venous pressure good peripheral circulation and tissular perfusion; 3 degrees light hypothermia; 4 degrees completely spontaneous respiration...
