Blood product usage is a quality outcome for patients undergoing cardiac surgery. To address an increase in blood product usage since the discontinuation of aprotinin, blood conservation strategies were initiated at a tertiary hospital in Oakland, CA. Improving transfusion rates for open heart surgery patients requiring Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) involved multiple departments in coordination. Specific changes to conserve blood product usage included advanced CPB technology upgrades, and precise individualized heparin dose response titration assay for heparin and protamine management...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic management of nonobstetric acute abdominal pain during pregnancy remains controversial. A gestational age of 26 to 28 weeks has been considered the upper limit for laparoscopy by some authors. A case series of nonobstetric surgery in advanced pregnancy is reported. METHODS: Third-trimester patients who underwent surgery between 1997 and 2006 were reviewed. RESULTS: Laparoscopic surgery was performed for nonobstetric emergencies during the third trimester for 11 patients...

BACKGROUND: Amniotic fluid embolism is a rare yet often lethal peripartum complication resulting from rapid cardiovascular collapse. Progress toward a better understanding of this entity has failed to identify either the underlying hemodynamic pathophysiology or an effective evidence-based treatment. CASE: A 45-year-old woman with a documented placenta previa experienced an amniotic fluid embolism during scheduled cesarean delivery. Transesophageal echocardiogram examination revealed catastrophic pulmonary vasoconstriction...

In this paper we present new experimental results that show pupillary noise to be multiplicative in a particular fashion with greatest variance in midrange and smaller variance at high and low ranges. This confirms the finding of multiplicative noise by Stanten and Stark (1966), but modifies and extends the relationship they suggested between standard deviation and mean pupil diameter. We propose a parametric model of the iris muscle which not only describes the static characteristics of pupil response to given stimuli, but also explains its random fluctuations in terms of probability density functions...

We describe our experience between 1985 and 1989 with 24 patients with clinically significant pancreatitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. The resulting pancreatitis was categorized into three groups, all requiring hospitalization: (1) mild pancreatitis (n = 12); (2) moderate pancreatitis requiring aggressive evaluation, treatment, and follow-up (n = 6); and (3) severe pancreatitis requiring surgical therapy (n = 6). The average length of hospitalization for the entire group was 12.8 days...

Achieving reduced mortality rates in patients with necrotizing pancreatitis and pancreatic abscess is possible by employing a comprehensive management plan. Components of the plan include (1) rapid evaluation and assessment of the degree of physiologic and anatomic derangement, the latter by the prompt use of vascular enhanced computed tomographic scan; (2) adequate fluid resuscitation determined by early institution of advanced hemodynamic monitoring; (3) attempts to identify and document septic foci via computed tomography-guided percutaneous aspiration; and (4) aggressive surgical debridement...

The effect of FUT-175, a new synthetic trypsin inhibitor, was evaluated in a lethal model of acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis induced by feeding mice a choline-deficient, ethionine-supplemented diet (CDE diet). When FUT-175 was given prophylactically at doses of 20 mg/kg body wt, the survival rate was significantly improved (p less than 0.05). The serum amylase concentration and trypsin activity in serum were also significantly diminished (p less than 0.05). Prophylactic administration of 5 mg/kg body wt of FUT-175 showed a statistically significant decrease in the serum trypsin activity, but it did not improve the survival rate...

A review of phytobezoars is presented, emphasizing medical treatment using enzymatic dissolution for bezoar located in the gastric pouch. Clinical and in vitro studies show the efficacy of both papain and cellulase, and it is suggested that, since each acts on a different component of the bezoar, they be administered in combination. There were no complications with this treatment in the patients reported in this series.
