OBJECTIVE: To report an observational investigation of small high attenuated foci in computed tomography (CT) scan followed by brain parenchymal catheterization. METHODS: From January 2011 to March 2015, we retrospectively reviewed the 381 patients who had undergone brain catheterization in our clinic and enrolled the patients who had newly developed high attenuation foci in the postoperative CT scans. The brain CT scans were reviewed about the lesion location, Hounsfield Unit (HU) and the time of appearance...

BACKGROUND: Local hemostatic agents are important for the control of bleeding during liver resection when standard surgical techniques are insufficient. STUDY DESIGN: This was a multicenter, randomized, open-label study to compare fibrin sealant patch (FSP; TachoSil; Takeda Pharma A/S) with oxidized regenerated cellulose gauze (ORCG; Surgicel Original; Ethicon) for the secondary treatment of local bleeding after hepatic resection in adult and pediatric patients...

BACKGROUND: Splenic hydatidosis is a rare condition and is usually managed by total splenectomy, which is associated to various complications, including overwhelming post-splenectomy sepsis and thrombosis. Probably due to supposed technical difficulties, the partial splenectomy is rarely performed being often unknown to physicians, infectious disease specialists and surgeons. METHODS: Demographic, clinical and surgical data were collected of four consecutive patients undergoing partial (or hemi-) splenectomy using an original, recently improved technique as a treatment for polar splenic hydatid cyst...

OBJECTIVE: The use of hemostatic agents has increased over time for all surgical procedures. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the newer topical absorbable hemostat products Surgicel * Fibrillar † and Surgicel SNoW ‡ (Surgicel advanced products, abbreviated as SAPs) compared to the older product Surgicel Original (SO) with respect to healthcare resource use and costs in procedures where these hemostats are most commonly used. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the Premier hospital database was used to identify adults who underwent brain/cerebral (BC), cardiovascular (CV: valve surgery and coronary artery bypass graft) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) between January 2011-December 2012...

PURPOSE: Currently available hemostatic pads are effective in treating oozing bleeds, but otherwise ineffective in more severe bleeding. This study investigates the hemostatic efficacy of a new hemostatic pad with advanced sealing properties using protein-reactive polyethylene glycol-coated collagen (PCC, Hemopatch) versus an oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC, Tabotamp/Surgicel Original) in a leporine arterial bleeding model of vascular reconstruction and a porcine hepatic model of general surgery...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the hemostatic effectiveness and safety of Fibrin Pad (Omrix Biopharmaceuticals Ltd.) vs absorbable hemostat in patients undergoing nonemergent surgery. Fibrin Pad is a topical absorbable hemostat designed to be effective in a variety of soft tissues and across multiple bleeding intensities. STUDY DESIGN: Patients 18 years and older, requiring abdominal, retroperitoneal, pelvic, or thoracic (noncardiac) surgery and with an appropriate soft-tissue target bleeding site (TBS), were randomized to receive Fibrin Pad or absorbable hemostat (NCT00658723)...

BACKGROUND: Oxidized cellulose is a well known and widely used surgical hemostat. It is available in many forms, but manufactured using either a nonregenerated or regenerated process. OBJECTIVE: This study compares the fiber structure, pH in solution, bactericidal effectiveness, and hemostatic effectiveness of an oxidized nonregenerated cellulose (ONRC; Traumastem(®)) and an oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC; Surgicel(®) Original). METHODS: In vitro, fiber structures were compared using scanning electron microscopy, pH of phosphate buffer solution (PBS) and human plasma were measured after each cellulose was submerged, and bactericidal effect was measured by plating each cellulose with four bacteria...

BACKGROUND: Augmentation of the nasal dorsum using autologous cartilage remains an exacting task in rhinoplasty. Precise, long-term control over graft contour and alignment can be difficult to achieve. In an attempt to alleviate these problems, the use of diced cartilage wrapped in a supportive sleeve has recently seen a resurgence of interest. The Turkish delight technique uses Surgicel as the sleeve material, whereas Daniel and Calvert have proposed autologous fascia. METHODS: The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy and reliability of diced cartilage-fascia grafts in the treatment of dorsal nasal volume deficiencies...

BACKGROUND: Diced cartilage grafts have long been used in rhinoplasty. Along with their various reported advantages, they also have some disadvantages. The irregular resorption rate of the engrafted mass is one of the major issues noted with diced cartilage grafts. An explanation for the unpredictable resorption rate has not yet been elucidated. This study aimed to determine the role of traumatized versus nontraumatized cartilage as the source of diced cartilage grafts. METHODS: This study included the noses of 32 patients (19 traumatized noses and 13 nontraumatized noses) who underwent surgery using Surgicel-wrapped diced cartilage grafts...

An 80-year-old man underwent middle and lower lobectomy of the right lung to treat squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) (4 cm in diameter) originating from the right B4 bronchus. On the 4th postoperative day, a massive air leak from the thoracic drain was noted. At that time, a diagnosis of bronchial stump fistula was made on the basis of the bronchoscopic findings. Continuous thoracic drainage, aspiration of sputum via a tracheostomy and intravenous administration of antibiotics were performed immediately after the diagnosis...

Saddle nose reconstruction is based on the use of support grafts to manage aesthetic and functional problems. Bone (calvarial, iliac crest, costal, nasal hump, ulnar, and heterogeneous origin), cartilage (septal, costal, heterogeneous), and synthetic materials (silicon, silastic, polyethylene) were used as support grafts. Three patients have been included in this study to define the surgical management and long-term aesthetic and functional results of patients undergoing rhinoplasty with support grafts for a saddle nose deformity...

Chemical agents routinely used in neurosurgery to achieve intraoperative hemostasis can cause a foreign body reaction, which appears on magnetic resonance (MR) images to be indistinguishable from recurrent tumor. Clinical and/or imaging evidence of progression of disease early after surgical resection or during aggressive treatment may actually be distinct features of granuloma in these circumstances. A series of three cases was retrospectively analyzed for clinical, imaging, surgical, and pathological findings, and the consequences they held for further disease management...

Kaltostat is a new haemostatic wound dressing composed of non-woven sodium calcium alginate fibres, and was originally developed to cover exposed wounds of the skin. A histopathological study was undertaken to determine the tissue response to Kaltostat in healing tooth sockets, to obtain a comparison with oxidised regenerated cellulose (Surgicel). Tooth sockets filled with blood clot acted as controls. The results showed that both biomaterials delayed wound healing in the early phase (1-4 weeks), giving rise to foreign body reactions...

A 65-year-old woman was evaluated for vertigo. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging as well as angiography revealed the coexistence of a tumor at the junction of the right transverse-sigmoid sinuses, a dural arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the right transverse sinus, and a right sigmoid sinus thrombosis. After transarterial embolization via the external carotid artery, the tumor was totally removed and the right transverse sinus was embolized with platinum coils and Surgicel. Postoperatively, the dural AVM was completely occluded, and the histological examination of the tumor showed it to be a transitional type of meningioma...
