A flexible laryngeal mask airway device (LMAD) embedded with 2 pharyngeal suction catheters was used for a young female patient who underwent a revision rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and chin implant. The modified LMAD was constructed by attaching 2 suction catheters onto the back of the mask; it functioned well without signs of malfunction or complications, with a total of 71 mL of blood evacuated from the pharyngeal area during the five and a half hour surgery. The patient emerged from anesthesia without coughing or straining, and reported no sore throat or nausea/vomiting in the recovery room...

Telemetric monitoring of hemodynamic parameters has become an established standard in experimental models of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). To that purpose, a dedicated catheter is usually implanted through the right ventricular wall of study animals. Drawbacks of this standard technique are: obtained pressures are from the right ventricle and therefore only surrogates for pulmonary arterial pressures, and furthermore, right ventricular myocardium is always damaged to a certain degree. To overcome shortcomings of standard hemodynamic assessment, we modified an established rat model, where severe PAH is induced by left-sided pneumonectomy plus monocrotaline injection...

Patients undergoing chemotherapy usually undergo placement of a totally implantable venous access port (TIVAP), but TIVAP catheter fracture is rare. We encountered a case where flushing the TIVAP catheter became impossible because of resistance. A 61-year-old-woman underwent TIVAP placement. Although a chest X-ray revealed the fractured catheter had migrated into the right hilar area, the timing of the fracture was unclear. Four-dimensional computed tomography (4D-CT) showed that the tip of the fractured catheter was located at the anterior segmental artery of the right upper lobe and was immobile, with the remaining portion flapping with the blood flow...

PURPOSE: Totally implantable venous access ports (TIVAP) have been widely used for many years in the management of patients suffering from cancer. The implantation and long-term use of TIVAPs are associated with mechanical, thrombotic, and infectious complications. This is the first exhaustive prospective study of all complications occurring in a whole population on long-term follow-up and therefore allows an objective assessment to be made of the safety of TIVAPs. METHODS: We carried out a prospective single-center observational study...

BACKGROUND: Success rates of assisted reproductive techniques (ART) are approximately 30%, with the most important limiting factor being embryo implantation. Mechanical endometrial injury, also called 'scratching', has been proposed to positively affect the chance of implantation after embryo transfer, but the currently available evidence is not yet conclusive. The primary aim of this study is to determine the effect of endometrial scratching prior to a second fresh in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) cycle on live birth rates in women with a failed first IVF/ICSI cycle...

Prevention of orthopedic device related infection (ODRI) using antibiotics has met with limited amount of success and is still a big concern during post-surgery. As an alternative, use of silver as an antibiotic treatment to prevent surgical infections is being used due to the well-established antimicrobial properties of silver. However, in most cases silver is used in particulate form with wound dressings or with short-term devices such as catheters but not with load-bearing implants. We hypothesize that strongly adherent silver to load-bearing implants can offer longer term solution to infection in vivo...
