INTRODUCTION: Although totally endoscopic surgery (TES) has been widely applied for the treatment of atrial septal defect (ASD), small children receive few benefits from this technique due to risks of the femoral cannulation. CASE PRESENTATION: A 23-month-old boy, weighing 10.5 kg, with the diagnosis of sinus venosus ASD underwent successful repair by TES. We performed this surgery through 4 small trocars (one 12 mm trocar and three 5 mm trocars), without robotic assistance...

Oxygen saturation in arterial blood (SaO₂) provides information about the performance of the respiratory system. Non-invasive measurement of SaO₂ by commercial pulse oximeters (SpO₂) make use of photoplethysmographic pulses in the red and infrared regions and utilizes the different spectra of light absorption by oxygenated and de-oxygenated hemoglobin. Because light scattering and optical path-lengths differ between the two wavelengths, commercial pulse oximeters require empirical calibration which is based on SaO₂ measurement in extracted arterial blood...

OBJECTIVE: To fight the "silent killer" hypertension, continuous blood pressure (BP) monitoring has been one of the most desired functions in wearable electronics. However, current BP measuring principles and protocols either involve a vessel occlusion process with a cuff or require multiple sensing nodes on the body, which makes it difficult to implement them in compact wearable electronics like smartwatches and wristbands with long-term wearability. METHODS: In this work, we proposed a highly-compact multi-wavelength photoplethysmography (MWPPG) module and a depth-resolved MWPPG approach for continuous monitoring of BP and systemic vascular resistance (SVR)...

Acute compartment syndrome is the physiologic consequence of increasing pressures within an enclosed anatomic space; if left untreated, it can subsequently cause irreversible necrosis, nerve injury, and tissue damage. A number of iatrogenic causes have been reported in the literature; however, to the best of our knowledge, there are no prior reports of upper extremity compartment syndrome in orthotopic liver transplant following arterial line placement. Here, we report a 52-year-old male with a history of end-stage liver disease secondary to primary sclerosing cholangitis who presented for orthotopic liver transplant...

Many basic and clinical studies have demonstrated that atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease. Although there are many factors affecting atherosclerosis, the role of lymphatic vessels in this disease has been neglected. Traditionally, lymphatic vessels have been considered to be passages for transporting interstitial fluid to the blood circulation. However, as early as the last century, researchers found that there are numerous lymphatic vessels surrounding sites of atherosclerosis; however, the relationship between lymphatic vessels and atherosclerosis is not clear...

Background: The most straightforward method of ascertaining arterial PO2 , PCO2 , and other components of blood gas is to measure them directly from a blood sample. In situations in which arterial puncture cannot be achieved or may be technically difficult, the venous blood sample can be used. Methods: In a prospective analytical study, 80 patients undergoing mechanical ventilation after open-heart surgery in the intensive care unit were evaluated. Simultaneous, matched arterial and central venous blood gas samples were taken from radial artery line and central vein, respectively, when the ABG (arterial blood gases) assessment was needed...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of invasive blood pressure as reflection of blood flow and tissue perfusion is often carried out in animals during general anesthesia. Intravascular cannulation offers the potential for gas to directly enter the circulation and lead to arterial gas embolism. Cerebral arterial gas embolism may cause a spectrum of adverse effects ranging from very mild symptoms to severe neurological injury and death. Although several experimental models of arterial gas embolism have been published, there are no known published reports of accidental iatrogenic cerebral arterial gas embolism from flushing of an arterial line in animals...

BACKGROUND: Atypical Shigella flexneri Z variant, that agglutinate with E1037 group factor specific monoclonal antisera against Shigella flexneri IV-I but not with other group or type specific antisera, has continuously being isolated in Bangladesh since 1997. Later this serotype has been reported in Indonesia, China and Argentina. Despite being a provisional serotype, continuous isolation of these strains in diverse geographical regions implicated a great necessity to study the overall characteristics of these strains...

BACKGROUND: Inula helenium L. is an herb whose anti-inflammatory properties are attributed to its active components, the sesquiterpene lactones (SLs). Our previous study demonstrated that the total sesquiterpene lactones isolated from Inula helenium L. (TSL-IHL), consisting mainly of alantolactone (AL) and isoalantolactone (IAL), may have potential in the prevention and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, the effect of TSL-IHL on atopic dermatitis (AD) has not been studied yet...

PURPOSE: Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is increasingly used to support conventional unsuccessful resuscitation and it is mandatory to rapidly initiate invasive hemodynamic monitoring, as soon as ECPR therapy is commenced. Commonly, this is achieved by establishing an additional arterial line via the right radial artery for invasive blood pressure measurement, but this can be challenging and risky on the one hand and might lead to erroneous measurements on the other hand...

Manual palpation of pulses is unreliable in detecting pulsatile flow in human participants, complicating the assessment of return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest. Ultrasound may offer an alternative. This study's objective was to investigate whether return of pulsatile flow in humans can be reliably assessed by common carotid artery ultrasound. We conducted a single-blinded randomised study of common carotid artery ultrasound using 20 cardiopulmonary bypass patients to model the return of pulsatile flow...

Isoalantolactone (IAL) is a sesquiterpene lactone extracted from roots of Inula helenium L and has shown anti-inflammatory effects. In this study we investigated the therapeutic effects of IAL on acute lung injury (ALI) and elucidated the mechanisms underlying its anti-inflammation potential in vitro and in vivo. Treatment with lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 100 ng/mL) drastically stimulated production of inflammatory mediators such as NO, TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 in mouse bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDMs), which was dose-dependently suppressed by pretreatment with IAL (2...
