Hundreds of thousands of anesthesia records are created each day. The earliest records were prepared by 2 medical students in late 19th-century Boston. Ernest Codman and Harvey Cushing went on to become prominent surgeons and contributed much to the safety of the surgical patient. Cushing's career is celebrated due to his associations with William Stewart Halsted, Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, Yale University, in New Haven, Connecticut, and his biography of Sir William Osler. Codman is remembered for introducing the morbidity and mortality conference as well as his drive to improve outcomes and patient safety...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Stents and flow diverters have revolutionized the treatment of cerebrovascular disease. Guglielmi coils, flexible microcatheters, and first-generation intracranial stents, such as Neuroform (Stryker Neurovascular) and Enterprise stents (Codman/DePuy-Synthes), have paved the way for the development of the Pipeline Embolization Device (PED) (ev3/Covidien/Medtronic) and other endovascular approaches. RECENT FINDINGS: This review discusses the historical development of flow diverter technologies from the PED to similar devices, such as the Surpass stent (Stryker Neurovascular), the Flow-Redirection Endoluminal Device (FRED; MicroVention, Inc...

Quality improvement and patient safety (QIPS) has become increasingly important in the practice of medicine, particularly since the Institute of Medicine's report, "To Err is Human." Despite surgery having been initially at the forefront in instituting QIPS, there has been a lag in promoting its importance until recently. A short history of QIPS is presented along with an introduction to the SQUIRE guidelines used for standardizing QIPS publications. As surgeons we are becoming even more accountable in promoting value in health care...

INTRODUCTION: Chondroblastoma (also known as Codman tumor) is a rare intermediate grade cartilaginous neoplasm, representing less than 1% of all primary bone tumors; it characteristically arises in the epiphysis or apophysis of a long bone in young patients, predominantly males. The most frequent location of chondroblastoma is the humerus (70% incidence rate) and more rarely it is located in the pelvis. When it affects the hip, the triradiate cartilage is the most common site. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An unusual case of Chondroblastoma located in the triradiate cartilage is reported...

BACKGROUND: Despite the existence of multiple validated risk assessment and quality benchmarking tools in surgery, their utility outside of high-income countries is limited. We sought to derive, validate and apply a scoring system that is both (1) feasible, and (2) reliably predicts mortality in a middle-income country (MIC) context. METHODS: A 5-step methodology was used: (1) development of a de novo surgical outcomes database modeled around the American College of Surgeons' National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) in South Africa (SA dataset), (2) use of the resultant data to identify all predictors of in-hospital death with more than 90% capture indicating feasibility of collection, (3) use these predictors to derive and validate an integer-based score that reliably predicts in-hospital death in the 2012 ACS-NSQIP, (4) apply the score in the original SA dataset and demonstrate its performance, (5) identify threshold cutoffs of the score to prompt action and drive quality improvement...

PURPOSE: Although previously frozen shoulder was thought to resolve by two to three years, recent studies demonstrated the symptoms can remain for much longer. Manipulation under anaesthetic (MUA) has been shown to be successful in relieving pain and restoring function. Yet, concerns have been raised regarding its safety and the risks of complications. We utilise Codman's paradox to manipulate the shoulder, avoiding rotational torque on the humerus. The aim of our study was to asses shoulder function in the early post MUA period...

Outcome is the numerator for the value equation, with the denominator being cost; measurement of each is essential to determine the most effective care. With regard to both total shoulder arthroplasty and rotator cuff repair, outcomes of low (vs high) volume providers are associated with longer hospital stay, longer length of operating room time, increased hospital complications, and cost. This suggests that volume thresholds are a key to providing greater value. However, this effect can be modified through systematic efforts to measure outcome and thus improve...

BACKGROUND: Three different types of anti-siphon devices (ASDs) have been developed to counteract siphoning-induced overdrainage in upright posture. However, it is not known how the different ASDs affect CSF dynamics under the complex pressure environment seen in clinic due to postural changes. We investigated which ASDs can avoid overdrainage in upright posture best without leading to CSF accumulation. METHODS: Three shunts each of the types Codman Hakim with SiphonGuard (flow-regulated), Miethke miniNAV with proSA (gravitational), and Medtronic Delta (membrane controlled) were tested...

Orbital lesions are challenging to access due to their location amid critical anatomic structures. Here, we demonstrate direct transorbital cannulation of an orbital venous varix using image guidance. A 36-year-old male was diagnosed with a left orbital venous varix approximately 5 years ago at an outside institution. He subsequently underwent surgery for direct intraoperative embolization of the venous varix followed by surgical resection. The patient recently presented to us with left eye pain, proptosis, double vision, and conjunctival hemorrhage precipitated by straining or lying flat...

PURPOSE: To validate the treatment planning system predicted proton dose beyond a heterogeneity (n-BCA glue) by making a measurement in a custom acrylic phantom. METHODS: A custom cubic acrylic phantom was designed for this experiment. A container was designed to fit in the phantom. This container was filled with TRUFILL™ n-Butyl Cyanoacrylate(n-BCA) glue. When the container was placed in the phantom, its center was at a distance of 7.4cm from the entrance. This depth allows us to make measurements around the center of modulation of a 126 MeV proton beam with a 3cm spread-out-Bragg peak...
