BACKGROUND: As part of an effort to maximize value in the perioperative setting, a paradigm shift is underway in the way that patients are cared for preoperatively, on the day of surgery, and postoperatively-a setting collectively known as the perioperative care. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS(®)) is an evidence-based, patient-centered team approach to delivering high-quality perioperative care to surgical patients. METHODS: This review focuses on anesthesiologists, with their unique purview of perioperative setting, who are important drivers of change in the delivery of valuable perioperative care...

Objectives A retrospective review of treatment of patients with massive or submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) using AngioJet rheolytic thrombectomy (ART) system with procedural modifications to improve on the previously reported outcomes. Materials and Methods Thirteen patients underwent emergent pulmonary artery thrombectomy for massive and submassive PE using ART with pharmacological and procedural modification, in comparison to prior reports. The modifications included the selective use of the Solent Omni AngioJet device in all subjects, distal contrast angiography via the AngioJet catheter before device activation, and limited short run times...

This is a report of a case of bladder ischemia which complicated bilateral prostatic artery embolization in an 80-year-old man with benign prostate hyperplasia and indwelling bladder catheter. Reflux of 100 μm microspheres into superior vesical arteries was the most likely cause. An unenhanced computed tomography (CT) scan performed immediately post-embolization showed retention of contrast in the left anterolateral bladder wall. Five days later, CT showed gas collections and dehiscence of the bladder wall at the same site, involving an area of 47 × 42 mm...

Transpulmonary pressure (PL) is computed as the difference between airway pressure and pleural pressure and separates the pressure delivered to the lung from the one acting on chest wall and abdomen. Pleural pressure is measured as esophageal pressure (PES) through dedicated catheters provided with esophageal balloons. We discuss the role of PL in assessing the effects of mechanical ventilation in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). In the supine position, directly measured PL represents the pressure acting on the alveoli and airways...

Depending on the planned catheter position for selective internal radioembolization, coil embolization of hepatic artery branches can be necessary to enable a selective and safe procedure. The anatomy of the hepatic arterial bed has been demonstrated to have a substantial number of anatomic variations, which turns coil embolization into a challenge if the feeder shows a reversed, "hairpin-like" turn immediately after its origin. Hepatointestinal collateral vessels originating from the periphery of the right hepatic artery often present with such a reversed course and can preclude patients from uncomplicated radioembolization if catheterization fails...

Echocardiography is the cornerstone in the diagnosis of any valvular heart disease. The accurate diagnosis of aortic stenosis, the left ventricle function and the other heart valves evaluation are currently done by ultrasound alone. Prosthetic valve choice and dimensions prior to implantation can be done solely by proper use of echocardiography. The emergence of new methods to cure aortic stenosis such as trans-catheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) emphasized the diagnostic value of cardiac ultrasound. The usefulness of echocardiography in TAVR can be divided in the baseline assessment (common to patients treated by conventional surgery), intra-procedural guidance of valve deployment and post-procedural follow-up...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Atrial anatomy and thickness may affect the electrical wave-dynamics of atrial fibrillation (AF). We explored the relationship between left atrial (LA) wall thickness (LAWT) or LA geometry and AF wave-dynamics. METHODS: We included 15 patients with persistent AF (age, 62.3 ± 11.9 years) who underwent AF catheter ablation. We measured the LAWT, LA endocardial curvature, and SD-curvature (surface bumpiness) from preprocedural computed tomography images...

Existing clinical intravascular imaging modalities are not capable of accurate detection of critical plaque pathophysiology in the coronary arteries. This study reports the first intravascular catheter combining intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) with multispectral fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIm) that enables label-free simultaneous assessment of morphological and biochemical features of coronary vessels in vivo. A 3.7 Fr catheter with a fiber-optic channel was constructed based on a 40 MHz clinical IVUS catheter...

INTRODUCTION: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent cardiac arrhythmia and causes patients considerable burden; symptoms such as palpitations and dyspnoea are common, leading to frequent emergency room visits. Patients with AF report reduced health-related quality of life (HQOL) compared with the general population; thus, treatments focus on the restoration of sinus rhythm to improve symptoms. Catheter ablation (CA) is a primary treatment strategy to treat AF-related burden in select patient populations; however, repeat procedures are often needed, there is a risk of major complications and the procedure is quite costly in comparison to medical therapy...

PURPOSE: To compare the technical and clinical effectiveness of ultrasound-accelerated endovascular thrombolysis (USAT) versus pigtail catheter-directed thrombolysis (PCDT) for the treatment of acute pulmonary embolism (PE). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A single-center retrospective study of patients treated with USAT or PCDT for acute massive or submassive PE between January 2010 and December 2016 was performed by reviewing electronic medical records. Sixty treatments were reviewed (mean patient age, 56...

OBJECTIVE: Determine pediatric resident training and preparation for 14 ACGME-required procedures. METHODS: National, random sample of 1000 graduating pediatric residents in 2015. For each of the ACGME-required procedures, residents were asked if they received training, successfully completed the procedure at least once, were comfortable performing the procedure unsupervised, and desired more training. To examine relationships among these 4 measures of training, we conducted logistic regression models and receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curves...

Staphylococcus epidermidis is a common cause of biomedical device-associated infections. Agr is the major quorum sensing system in staphylococci and regulates virulence factors. Four agr-specificity groups exist in S. epidermidis, and chronic S. epidermidis infections are hypothesised to select for agr-negative phenotypes. Therefore, we investigated S. epidermidis strains from prosthetic joint- and catheter-associated infections to establish i) whether an infection selects for an agr-negative phenotype; ii) the importance of PSMγ and iii) if the agr-specificity group is infection dependent...

OBJECTIVE: In addition to age and comorbidities, health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is known to predict mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Understanding the association of vascular access type with HRQOL can help surgeons to provide patient-centered dialysis access recommendations. We sought to understand the impact of HD access type on HRQOL. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional prospective study of community-dwelling prevalent HD patients in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania...

BACKGROUND: Long-term (tunneled cuffed) hemodialysis catheters are frequently used vascular access in renal failure patients. Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) is a common complication of long-term hemodialysis catheters, with severe morbidities and high risk of mortality. Management of CRBSI by systemic antibiotics while keeping the catheter in place is not effective. Among the different modalities of CRBSI management are catheter removal (CR) and guidewire exchange (GE) of the catheter...

In this article, we present a case of recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy not caused by nerve injury but due to local anesthetic infiltration that was applied prior to central venous catheterization. A 47-year-old female patient was admitted to emergency room with fatigue and nausea and was diagnosed with acute renal failure. Right jugular venous catheterization was performed for emergency hemodialysis with Seldinger technique using middle approach. Within minutes and immediately after the procedure the patient complained of hoarseness and shortness of breath, and she had stridor in her physical exam...
