BACKGROUND: This is the first survey to assess and quantify the level of satisfaction among the integrated vascular surgery residents. METHODS: An anonymous 13-question survey was electronically distributed to 225 members of the Society of Vascular Surgery Resident listserv. The questions were a combination of multiple choice, free response, and 5-point Leichhardt scale. Satisfaction was defined as a score of 3 or higher on a 5-point scale. RESULTS: Sixty-nine of 225 responded to the survey with fairly equal distribution across the postgraduate years...

There has been significant progress throughout 2013 in cardiothoracic and vascular anaesthesia and intensive care. There has been a revolution in the medical and interventional management of atrial fibrillation. The medical advances include robust clinical risk scoring systems, novel oral anticoagulants, and growing clinical experience with a new antiarrhythmic agent. The interventional advances include left atrial appendage occlusion for stroke reduction, generalization of ablation techniques in cardiac surgery, thoracoscopic ablation techniques, and the emergence of the hybrid ablation procedure...

BACKGROUND: The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Case Log represents a data system that satisfies the American Board of Surgery (ABS) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program, yet has broad data fields for surgical subspecialties. Using the ACS Case Log, we have developed a method of data capture, categorization, and reporting of acute care surgery fellows' experiences. STUDY DESIGN: In July 2010, our acute care surgery fellowship required our fellows to log their clinical experiences into the ACS Case Log...

OBJECTIVE: Pulmonary hypertension may be encountered in the intensive care unit in patients with critical illnesses such as acute respiratory distress syndrome, left ventricular dysfunction, and pulmonary embolism, as well as after cardiothoracic surgery. Pulmonary hypertension also may be encountered in patients with preexisting pulmonary vascular, lung, liver, or cardiac diseases. The intensive care unit management of patients can prove extremely challenging, particularly when they become hemodynamically unstable...

Continuous arteriovenous haemofiltration (CAVH) has been adopted as the treatment of choice for acute renal failure (ARF) in critically ill patients in the intensive care units of Uppsala University Hospital since 1982. To know the outcome of CAVH during the last one and a half year this retrospective study was done on those patients seen in July 1987-December 1988. Forty patients aged 2 months-84 years (mean 57 years) were included. Treatment duration was 1-31 days (mean 10 days, patients with treatment duration less than 24 h were excluded)...
