Background: Traditional total knee implants designs, usually, are not able to reproduce the physiological kinematics of the knee, leaving almost 20% of the patients, those who underwent a total knee arthroplasty (TKA), not fully satisfied. Modern inserts are nowadays designed with a fully congruent medial compartment to reproduce the normal medial pivoting biomechanics of the knee. The aim of this article was to evaluate preliminary clinical improvement using the Medial Congruent (MC) insert as specific level of constraint...

Dexmedetomidine is a highly selective α2-adrenergic agonist with analgesic and sedative properties. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of the drug for short-lasting sedation (24 h) in intensive care units (ICUs) in patients undergoing mechanical ventilation and endotracheal intubation. In October 2008, the Food and Drug Administration extended use of the drug for the sedation of nonintubated patients before and during surgical and nonsurgical procedures. In the European Union, the European Medicine Agency approved the use of dexmedetomidine in September 2011 with a single recognized indication: ICU adult patients requiring mild sedation and awakening in response to verbal stimulus...

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy is a promising treatment for perianal Crohn's fistulas refractory to conventional therapy, which are an extremely morbid complication and a true therapeutic challenge. Autologous adipose-derived stromal vascular fraction (ADSVF) is an easily accessible source of cells with angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, and regenerative properties. Here, we describe a case involving a patient with severe perianal Crohn's fistulas refractory to the best medical and surgical practices who received local treatment with ADSVF and microfat...

Introduction The use of intrathecal morphine has the potential to help alleviate the pain that patients experience undergoing spinal surgeries. Complications can cause immobilization, which can lead to vascular thrombosis and ileus. Studies have shown epidural analgesia significantly lowered postoperative pain scores in scoliosis surgeries. Intrathecal anesthesia has been shown to have good pain control over the initial 24-hour postoperative period. Purpose Determine if intrathecal morphine would reduce postoperative pain with minimal side effects...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated renal arterial perforation is a rare consequence of blunt abdominal trauma. Meticulous surgical control of retroperitoneal active bleeding is difficult due to oozing of soft connective tissue, the deep position of operative field, and the presence of friable vascular tissue. Therefore, endovascular treatment is often preferred. PRESENTATION OF CASE: An 83-year-old man was transferred to our trauma center due to retroperitoneal active bleeding after a car accident, in which his right upper abdomen struck the steering wheel...

In SEEG, as for any surgical procedure, the benefit/risk ratio is a key-point. This implies rigorous clinical practice in terms of indication, information delivered to the patient, and surgical technique. Numerous technical options may be used to achieve this goal. All are valuable, as long as they are executed with rigor and consistency. Intracranial bleeding represents the main risk of the procedure (1-4% of cases). The procedure also carries a risk of infection (0.8%), death (total of 6 reported cases in all the literature, <0...

Neovascularization of the cornea is characterized by the growth of blood vessels caused by imbalances between angiogenic and anti-angiogenic factors. We investigated whether the expression of Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGF), Vascular endothelial growth inhibitor (VEGI) receptors, as well as topical drug treatments, participate in regulating corneal neovascularization after corneal damage and remodeling. We used 72 mature male New Zealand rabbits...

REVIEW
Alena Stenglova, Jan Benes
Blood pressure (BP) is one of the most important variables evaluated during almost every medical examination. Most national anesthesiology societies recommend BP monitoring at least once every 5 min in anesthetized subjects undergoing surgical procedures. In most cases, BP is monitored non-invasively using oscillometric cuffs. Although the risk of arterial cannulation is not very high, the invasive BP monitoring is usually indicated only in the case of high-risk patients or in complex surgical procedures...

Regional anesthesia has been used to help create local sympathectomy and improve blood flow in plastic surgery procedures involving tissue grafts and flaps. However, anesthetic techniques that reduce systemic vascular resistance must be used with caution in patients with aortic stenosis (AS). Combined neuraxial and general anesthesia with careful titration of the local anesthetic dose can be a safe approach for patients with AS undergoing microvascular procedures. We present the anesthetic management of the first North American penile transplant, on an obese patient with moderate AS...
