BACKGROUND: Although the greater superficial petrosal nerve (GSPN) is an important landmark of the anterior transpetrosal approach (ATPA), bleeding from the interdural space around the foramen spinosum (FS), the GSPN, and the foramen ovale impedes the identification of the GSPN, during epidural dissection in the ATPA. OBJECTIVE: To describe the technique of intraspinosum middle meningeal artery (MMA) ligation, which enables us to control bleeding from the interdural space...

BACKGROUND: The extradural temporopolar transcavernous approach can be used to treat central skull base pathologies, but control of bleeding from the opened cavernous sinus is essential. Oxidized cellulose cotton packing and fibrin glue injection can be used, but the effect on the postoperative venous draining pattern remains unclear. OBJECTIVE: To investigate changes in the venous drainage pattern immediately after transcavernous surgery with and without fibrin glue injection into the bleeding cavernous sinus...

Laser treatment on a large size of prostate gland often encounters significant bleeding that can prolong the entire procedure and cause urinary complications. The current study investigates the feasibility of dual-wavelength (532 and 980 nm) application to achieve rapid hemostasis for 532-nm laser prostatectomy. Porcine kidney and bleeding phantom models were tested to quantify the degree of the irreversible tissue coagulation and to estimate the time for the complete hemostasis, respectively. The ex vivo kidney testing verifies that the dual-wavelength created up to 40% deeper and 25% wider coagulation regions than a single wavelength does...

We thank Dr. Dorgalaleh et al. for their interest in our report regarding the minimal Factor XIII (FXIII) activity level to prevent major spontaneous bleedings [1] and for describing their experience using a low dose prophylaxis in patients with severe FXIII deficiency [2]. As reported by the authors, primary prophylaxis is mandatory for all patients with severe congenital FXIII deficiency, since the diagnosis, to prevent spontaneous life-threatening bleeding. It is well known that the main cause of death or disability in these patients is intracranial haemorrhage (ICH), occurring either spontaneously or after minor trauma, therefore an early prophylaxis is crucial [3]...

We evaluated whether the current bioequivalence limit is adequate to ensure safety and efficacy of rivaroxaban in patients under total hip arthroplasty and total knee arthroplasty based on its model informed benefit/risk profile. Clinical data from a total of 7145 patients from 3 phase 2 and 4 phase 3 clinical trials were included in the current model-based exposure-response analysis. The relationships between rivaroxaban exposure measurements (ie, minimum or trough, maximum, average concentration, and area under the concentration-time curve [AUC] at steady state) and clinical outcomes (ie, the probabilities of major bleeding [MB] and venous thromboembolism [VTE]) were modeled using NONMEM 7...

Schizonepetae Herba Carbonisata (SHC) has been used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to treat haemorrhagic diseases for more than 1000 years. However, little information is available on its haemostatic components and mechanism. In this study, we developed novel water-soluble carbon dots (CDs) in aqueous extracts of SHC for the first time and a modified pyrolysis method was used to prepare the SHC using Schizonepetae Herba (SH) as the sole precursor. The SHC-CDs were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-resolution TEM (HRTEM), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) and fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)...

OBJECTIVE: To develop a new score (CATH-score) for predicting intra-procedural risk in patients undergoing CT-guided percutaneous needle pulmonary biopsy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 100 CT-guided lung biopsies performed with a 18 Gauge (G) needle (Pilot Group) were reviewed to analyse patient-, lesion- and procedure-related variables to identify risk factors for procedural complications (pneumothorax and parenchymal bleeding) and diagnosis failure. A scoring system for predicting complications and choosing the right needle (16 G, 18 G, 21 G) was developed using risk factors weighting and prospectively applied to 153 consecutive biopsies (CATH-score Group); complications and diagnostic rates obtained were compared with a group of patients (Control Group) that underwent lung biopsy; in this group of patients the choice of the calliper of the needle was based on the operator experience...

Acquired haemophilia A (AHA) due to autoantibodies against Factor VIII (FVIII) is a rare disease associated with severe bleeding. Since diffuse cutaneous hematomas and ecchymoses are the main clinical signs of this condition, dermatologists should be aware about this disease. Here, we present a case of AHA in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS : Combined use of thienopyridine derivatives and other antithrombotic agents is reported to be a risk factor for postoperative bleeding after gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). However, risk associated with a single thienopyridine derivative has not been evaluated. In this study, we aimed to evaluate bleeding risks of gastric ESD without discontinuation of a single thienopyridine derivative agent. PATIENTS AND METHODS:  This multicenter, prospective, observational cohort study included patients who had undergone implantation of a coronary artery stent and who were taking a combination of aspirin antiplatelet therapy and a thienopyridine derivative agent...

One patient with Dieulafoy's lesion (DL) of the rectum who had a history of anal receptive intercourse is described and the relevant literature reviewed. DL is rare in clinical practice and is extremely rare in the rectum. It often affects patients with no history of cirrhosis or gastrointestinal disease and occurs with abrupt or recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding. Visible vessels can usually be found by endoscopy and coinstantaneous treatments are essential while surgical interventions can occur when necessary...

INTRODUCTION:  The over-the-scope-clip (OTSC) can potentially overcome limitations of standard clips and achieve more efficient and reliable hemostasis. Data on OTSC use for non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB) in patients with cardiovascular comorbidities are currently limited. PATIENTS AND METHODS:  We prospectively collected and retrospectively analyzed our database from February 2009 to September 2015 from all patients who underwent emergency endoscopy for high-risk NVUGIB in 2 academic centers and were treated with OTSC as first-line (n = 81) or second-line therapy (n = 19)...
