Alfred C Kuo, Eva Grotkopp
BACKGROUND: Most patients experience moderate to severe pain after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We hypothesized that intraoperative treatment of cut bone surfaces with local anesthetic (preimplantation immersion anesthesia, PIA) would lead to decreased postoperative pain and opioid consumption. METHODS: Records of 76 patients who underwent unilateral, cemented TKA were retrospectively reviewed. For PIA patients, surgical wounds were immersed in local anesthetic solution immediately prior to component implantation...

INTRODUCTION: This study was designed to test whether exogenous application of nerve growth factor (NGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) to muscles reinnervated with nerve-muscle-endplate band grafting (NMEG) could promote specific outcomes. METHODS: The right sternomastoid muscle in adult rats was experimentally denervated and immediately reinnervated by implanting a NMEG pedicle from the ipsilateral sternohyoid muscle. A fibrin sealant containing NGF and FGF-2 was focally applied to the implantation site...

PURPOSE: High dose rate prostate brachytherapy is a widely-practiced treatment, delivering large conformal doses in relatively few treatment fractions. Inter- and intra-fraction catheter displacements have been reported. Unrecognized displacement can have a significant impact on dosimetry. Knowledge of the implant geometry at the time of treatment is important for ensuring safe and effective treatment. In this work we demonstrate a method to reconstruct the catheter positions pre-treatment, using a 'shift' imaging technique, and perform registration with the treatment plan for verification relative to the prostate...

INTRODUCTION: Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) assisted implant-based breast reconstruction (IBBR) has grown in popularity over traditional submuscular techniques. Numerous human, bovine or porcine derived ADMs are available with the type used varying considerably worldwide. Yet, comparative evidence for the efficacy of different ADMs particularly xenogenic is limited. This study directly compares early outcomes of porcine (Strattice™) and bovine (Surgimend™) ADMs in IBBR. METHOD: Retrospective study of sequential experience of immediate IBBR using Strattice or Surgimend ADM...

Myocardial perforation by pacemaker electrode is a very serious complication. Usually, the pacemaker electrode perforates the right ventricle, but rarely the left ventricular myocardium. We describe an 82-year-old female patient who presented with left ventricular pacing after temporary pacemaker implantation and was diagnosed with myocardial perforation. Emergency thoracotomy showed that the exact position of the cardiac perforation was close to the left ventricular apex. Perforation of the left ventricular free wall by an electrode sometimes progresses slowly...

OBJECTIVE: The efficacy of traditional spinal cord stimulation (t-SCS) tends to decay over time in patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). While it has been shown that dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation is extremely effective in t-SCS-naïve patients with CRPS, its efficacy in patients who had previously failed t-SCS is unknown. Given that DRG-SCS and t-SCS target different spinal pathways, a failure with t-SCS should not automatically preclude a patient from attempting DRG-SCS...

A minimum subantral bone height in the posterior maxilla may require a bone augmentation where a sinus lift procedure is the most commonly used technique, either preceding or simultaneously with the implant installation. While elevating the Schneiderian membrane ruptures are common, possibly resulting in less bone formation. In this paper, we propose the surgical pneumatization of the Schneiderian membrane as a new technique to minimize the risk of such complications. This can be achieved mainly by creating a hole for the immediate and increased passage of air through the Schneiderian membrane and the maxillary sinus wall above the region of augmentation...
