A dual-off-axis pumping scheme is presented to generate wavelength-tunable high-order Hermite-Gaussian (HG) modes in Yb:CaGdAlO4 lasers. The mode and wavelength can be actively controlled by the off-axis displacements and pump power. The purities of the output HG modes are quantified by intensity distributions and the measured M2 values. The highest order reaches m=15 for stable HGm,0 mode, and wavelength-tunable width is about 10 nm. Moreover, through externally converting the HGm,0 modes, the vortex beams carrying orbital angular momentum (OAM) with a large OAM-tunable range from ±1ℏ to ±15ℏ are produced...

We present a segmental clamp with distal perfusion technique to reduce myocardial ischemia during onlay grafting, on a beating heart. After a proximal coronary arteriotomy for 2-3 cm, the distal artery is perfused through a cannula, with femoral arterial blood (distal perfusion with external shunt). During proximal and distal coronary snare clamping with distal perfusion, onlay anastomosis is performed, from the heel toward the point of cannula insertion. We then move the proximal clamp to the onlay area and open the graft, to get early proximal coronary reperfusion...

Background: In octogenarian patients there is a potential for more tangible clinical benefits from off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) compared to conventional coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) (COCAB). We aimed to investigate whether, compared to COCAB, OPCAB is associated with better operative outcomes in octogenarians by analyzing the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) databases 2003-2011. Methods: Of the 134,117 discharge records from 797 hospitals analyzed of patients aged ≥80 years undergoing first time isolated CABG from 2003 to 2011, 70...

BACKGROUND: Endotoxemia in pediatric cardiac surgical patients is poorly understood. The endotoxin activity assay (EAA) levels were examined in neonates undergoing cardiac surgery in order to assess their reference levels and their association with other pre-, intra-, and postoperative risk factors for gut hypoperfusion. We finally observed if refeeding was associated with modification of endotoxin levels. METHODS: In a prospective cohort study, neonates undergoing surgery for correction or palliation were enrolled...

Local-scale opportunities to address challenges of the water-food nexus in the developing world need to be embraced. Borehole-garden permaculture is advocated as one such opportunity that involves the sustainable use of groundwater spilt at hand-pump operated borehole supplies that is otherwise wasted. Spilt water may also pose health risks when accumulating as a stagnant pond. Rural village community use of this grey-water in permaculture projects to irrigate borehole gardens is proposed to primarily provide economic benefit whereby garden-produce revenue helps fund borehole water-point maintenance...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is not uncommon neoplasm, and its occurrences with coronary artery disease (CAD) is more confronted by cardiac surgeon today. In most cases, when the HCC is detected, it has invaded to regional or distant sites. The most frequent location of HCC metastasis includes pulmonary system, musculoskeletal, lymphatic system, and central nervous system. Indeed, intra-atrial metastasis is a rare phenomenon and associated with poor outcome. We report a case of CAD with known HCC that referred for CABG before scheduling for hepatic tumor management...

We present historical, epidemiological, and statistical data on heart echinococcosis (also known as hydatid disease) and concomitant lesions of different organs, as well as a demonstration of its surgical management. The diagnosis of heart echinococcosis is based on review and identification of the cyst and we evaluate the various common diagnostic methods. Surgical treatment of patients with heart echinococcosis may require cardiopulmonary bypass or may be an off-pump procedure depending on the location of the cysts...

BACKGROUND: Transapical implantation of artificial chordae using the NeoChord system (NeoChord Inc, Minneapolis, MN) is an emerging beating-heart technique for correction of mitral regurgitation (MR) through a minimally invasive left minithoracotomy. The purpose of the study was to describe the anesthetic management and procedural success of patients undergoing this procedure. METHODS: All patients (n = 76) who underwent mitral valve repair with the NeoChord system in our institution from December 2011 to December 2016 were included in this observational prospective study...

Use of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has had a resurgence, as clinical trial data emerged showing that it remains the standard of care for patients with complex lesions. Debate exists regarding various factors, including endoscopic vs open vein-graft harvesting, single vs bilateral mammary artery grafts, radial artery vs saphenous vein grafts, right internal mammary artery vs radial artery grafts, and on-pump vs off-pump surgery. More recent developments include minimally invasive approaches, robotics, and hybrid revascularization, which are changing the risk-benefit ratio for this patient population...

Hyper-coagulation after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB) is one of the main reasons for graft thrombosis. D-dimer is closely linked to the activation of coagulation. Few studies have reported the variation range and long-term abnormal coagulation after OPCAB in the Chinese population. Our study aimed to determine the characteristics and value of D-dimer after OPCAB.In this prospective study, 265 patients who underwent OPCAB for the first time were recruited from 2011 to 2012. The D-dimer level of the patients was tested before surgery and on the 1st, 4th, and 14th day, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd month after surgery...

PURPOSE: We aimed to investigate the ability of oxygen uptake kinetics to predict short-term outcomes after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting. METHODS: Fifty-two patients aged 60.9 ± 7.8 years waiting for off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery were evaluated. The 6-min walk test distance was performed pre-operatively, while simultaneously using a portable cardiopulmonary testing device. The transition of oxygen uptake kinetics from rest to exercise was recorded to calculate oxygen uptake kinetics fitting a monoexponential regression model...

BACKGROUND: Tumor-derived autophagosome vaccines (DRibbles) have the potential to broaden immune response to poorly immunogenic tumors. METHODS: Autologous vaccine generated from tumor cells harvested from pleural effusions was administered to patients with advanced NSCLC with the objectives of assessing safety and immune response. Four patients were vaccinated and evaluable for immune response; each received two to four doses of vaccine. Study therapy included two cycles of docetaxel 75 mg/m2 on days 1 and 29 to treat the tumor, release hidden antigens and produce lymphopenia...

There is a pressing need for new treatment regimens that enable improved glycaemic control and reduced diabetes self-management burdens. Closed-loop, or artificial pancreas, systems represent one of the most promising avenues in this regard. Closed-loop systems connect wearable continuous glucose monitor (CGM) sensors to smartphone- or tablet-mounted algorithms that process and model CGM data to deliver precise and frequently updated doses of fast-acting insulin (and glucagon in dual-hormone systems) to users via wearable pumps...

Lasers monolithically integrated with high speed MOSFETs on the silicon (Si) substrate could be a key to realize low cost, low power, and high speed opto-electronic integrated circuits (OEICs). In this paper, we report the monolithic integration of InGaAs channel transistors with electrically pumped GaAs/AlGaAs lasers on the Si substrate for future advanced OEICs. The laser and transistor layers were grown on the Si substrate by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) using direct epitaxial growth. InGaAs n-FETs with an ION/IOFF ratio of more than 106 with very low off-state leakage and a low subthreshold swing with a minimum of 82 mV/decade were realized...
