OBJECTIVE: Venous-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is a well-established therapy for refractory cardiopulmonary failure. Femoral cannulation offers a quick and effective means of providing circulatory support but is not without complication. Inflammation or lymphatic disruption at the site of cannulation can cause the formation of lymphoceles, leading to the patient's discomfort and possibly necessitating intervention. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of in-hospital lymphocele formation in VA-ECMO patients and to identify predictors for their development...

OBJECTIVE: Lower extremity bypass (LEB) operations have high rates of surgical site infections (SSI). Phenylephrine is a commonly used vasoconstrictor which may reduce skin blood flow and increase the likelihood of SSI in these patients. We studied the potential effect of phenylephrine infusion during LEB surgery on SSI. METHODS: LEB cases and their demographic data were identified through the Vascular Quality Initiative registry. SSI in this population was identified using the hospital epidemiology surveillance database...

Parastomal hernias (PHs) cause significant morbidity in patients with permanent ostomies, and several laparoscopic and open repair techniques have been described. We report our experience with open retromuscular repair of PHs using permanent synthetic mesh. A prospectively maintained database was retrospectively reviewed to identify patients undergoing PH repair. Primary outcomes are surgical site occurrence, surgical site infection (SSI), and hernia recurrence. Variables were analyzed using Pearson's χ2 test or Fisher's exact test...

INTRODUCTION: Exchange nailing is most acceptable for treating hypertrophic non-union of the long bones, requiring the removal of previously fixed implant. However, its main effect of mechanical stabilization is controversial in non-isthmal area. We hypothesized that minimally invasive plate augmentation over the non-union site may have a better option, without the need of bone grafting or removing pre-existing implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventeen patients with hypertrophic non-union of the long bones between 2010 and 2014 on radiography who previously underwent intramedullary (IM) nailing or plate osteosynthesis for long-bone fractures were included...

Salvatore Giordano, Patrick B Garvey, Donald P Baumann, Jun Liu, Charles E Butler
BACKGROUND: Panniculectomy (PAN) is often performed during abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) to decrease wound healing complications and hernia recurrence rates. However, studies of AWR with concurrent panniculectomy (AWR+PAN) have reported contradictory results. We hypothesized that patients undergoing AWR+PAN experience more wound healing complications but similar rates of hernia recurrence compared to AWR alone. METHODS: In this retrospective study of 548 consecutive patients, 305 (52...

BACKGROUND: Alveolar bone is a critical tissue for tooth retention; however, once alveolar bone is lost, it may not spontaneously regenerate. Currently, bone grafts or artificial bone are commonly used for alveolar bone regeneration therapy. However, these therapies require surgical procedures, which present risks, particularly in aged patients. Therefore, the development of alveolar bone regeneration techniques that do not require surgical procedures is critical. It is well known that stem cells present in the periosteal and periodontal ligament may be induced to differentiate into osteogenic cells...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have provided substantial evidence on the association of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa), and its highly leukotoxic JP2 genotype, with localized aggressive periodontitis (LAP). The present study aims to evaluate the presence of JP2 in LAP individuals following periodontal treatment. METHODS: Sixty African American LAP patients between ages 5 and 25 years were examined. At baseline, pocket depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), bleeding on probing (BoP) and plaque index were measured and subgingival plaque was collected from both LAP diseased sites and healthy sites for each participant...

BACKGROUND: Vascularized lymph node transfer (VLNT) is a surgical treatment for lymphedema. Multiple donor sites have been described and each has significant disadvantages. We propose the jejunal mesentery as a novel donor site for VLNT. METHODS: Cadaveric anatomic study analyzing jejunal lymph nodes (LNs) and description of outcomes from the first patients who received jejunal mesenteric VLNT for treatment of lymphedema. RESULTS: In 5 cadavers, the average number of total LNs and peripheral LNs were identified in the proximal, middle and distal segments of jejunum...

REVIEW
Javad Parvizi, Sue Barnes, Noam Shohat, Charles E Edmiston
In the modern operating room (OR), traditional surgical mask, frequent air exchanges, and architectural barriers are viewed as effective in reducing airborne microbial populations. Intraoperative sampling of airborne particulates is rarely performed in the OR because of technical difficulties associated with sampling methodologies and a common belief that airborne contamination is infrequently associated with surgical site infections (SSIs). Recent studies suggest that viable airborne particulates are readily disseminated throughout the OR, placing patients at risk for postoperative SSI...

PURPOSE: The best choice of antiseptic agent for skin preparation at cesarean section remains controversial. We performed this meta-analysis to assess whether chlorhexidine (CH)-based skin antisepsis was more effective than povidone iodine (PI)-based antisepsis for prevention of surgical site infection (SSI) after cesarean section. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library were systematically searched to identify English publications that compared chlorhexidine gluconate (CH) as a skin preparation agent with PI in cesarean section...

PURPOSE: The prevalence of peri-implantitis has increased significantly, forcing clinicians to search for ways to prevent it. Laser-microtextured surfaces promote soft tissue attachment and provide a tight seal around implants. Hence, the aim of this study was to examine the clinical, radiographic, and histologic features of ligature-induced peri-implantitis, as well as the effect of surgical treatment of these induced peri-implantitis lesions on laser-microtextured implants in a controlled animal model...

Regenerative therapies are commonly needed prior to implant placement in the posterior maxilla following tooth extraction. The aim of this study was to investigate the anatomical features of the atrophic posterior maxilla that might affect surgical approach selection and technique and risk of intra- and postoperative complications. Cone beam computed tomography files were screened to identify pristine atrophic maxillary ridges in need of bone augmentation (ridge height < 10 mm). Ridge height and width and lateral wall thickness (LWT) were measured at different levels, and palatonasal recess and lateral wall morphology were calculated...
