Recent advances in materials chemistry establish the foundations for unusual classes of electronic systems, characterized by their ability to fully or partially dissolve, disintegrate, or otherwise physically or chemically decompose in a controlled fashion after some defined period of stable operation. Such types of "transient" technologies may enable consumer gadgets that minimize waste streams associated with disposal, implantable sensors that disappear harmlessly in the body, and hardware-secure platforms that prevent unwanted recovery of sensitive data...

BACKGROUND: Recently, perioperative transfusions were demonstrated to be associated with higher rate of surgical site infections (SSIs) in neonates. We sought to examine whether a similar relationship exists between perioperative blood transfusions and SSI among non-neonatal pediatric general surgical patients. METHODS: We conducted an IRB-approved retrospective study reviewing non-neonatal patients (age greater than 28days and less than 18years) who underwent a general or thoracic surgical procedure in 2012, 2013, 2014, in the American College of Surgeons National Safety and Quality Improvement Project-Pediatric (ACS-NSQIP-P) Participant User Files...

The rate of ulcerative colitis (UC), an inflammatory bowel disease, has been on the rise in the United States for the last several decades. Colectomy can be performed when other treatment options cannot provide a reasonable quality of life to patients with UC. Frailty has been shown to be a strong tool for evaluating preoperative risk factors for poor postoperative outcomes. The National Surgical Quality and Improvement Program cross-institutional database was used for this study. Data from 943 patients who underwent colectomy for UC between 2005 and 2012 were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: After a Department of Health site visit, 2 teaching hospitals imposed strict regulations on operating room attire including full coverage of ears and facial hair. We hypothesized that this intervention would reduce superficial surgical site infections (SSI). STUDY DESIGN: We compared NSQIP data from all patients undergoing surgery in the 9 months before implementation (n=3,077) to time-matched data 9 months post-implementation (n=3,440). Univariate and multivariable analyses were used to examine patient, clinical, and operative factors associated with SSI...

REVIEW
Ezra N Teitelbaum, Lee L Swanstrom
Traditional surgeries involve accessing body cavities, such as the abdomen and thorax, via incisions that divide skin and muscle. These operations result in postoperative pain and convalescence, and a risk of complications such as wound infection and hernia. The development of flexible endoscopy allowed diseases as varied as gastrointestinal bleeding and colon adenomas to be treated without incisions, but this technique is restricted by its endoluminal nature. A novel category of surgical endoscopic procedures has recently been developed that uses flexible endoscopic techniques to enter and access the submucosa of the gastrointestinal tract...

Purpose: Furcation involvement in the molars is difficult to treat, and has been recognized as a risk factor for tooth loss. Although periodontal regenerative therapies, including guided tissue regeneration and various types of bone grafts, have been applied to furcation defects, the effects of these treatments are limited, especially in large class III furcation defects. The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effect of reciprocal autologous root transplantation on periodontal wound healing and regeneration in class III furcation defects in dogs...
