Early Post-Operative Fever after cochlear Implant surgery is not uncommon. We assessed all pediatric patients undergoing cochlear implants and addressed the patients with post-operative fever. A hundred and thirty surgeries were performed; of all patients 25 developed early postoperative fever. The workup did not identify the cause of fever in any of the patients. Fever resolved without any additional Intervention. There was no difference in fever or infection rate in patients that received prophylactic antibiotic, whether prolonged (one week) versus or only perioperative treatment (one day)...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has undergone significant changes in recent years in the quest for improving efficacy and reducing morbidity. Newer minimally-invasive modalities of PCNL such as mini-PCNL, ultra-mini PCNL, and micro-PCNL have evolved with advancement in optics and technology. However, with these newer advancements, migration of small fragments produced with laser lithotripsy remains a concern, which may result in incomplete stone clearance. We describe a new technique of PCNL termed "Superperc", that utilizes suction to remove all the fragments and maintain one-way flow...

In leukemic patients, appendectomy must be approached with caution because of the increased risk of complications. Fungal appendicitis is rare and only a few cases have been described in the literature, particularly in immunocompromised individuals in whom this infection can be fatal. We present 2 pediatric patients with acute myeloid leukemia, who developed appendicitis during the postchemotherapy neutropenic phase, while receiving antifungal prophylaxis. Fever was the first sign of infection. Laparoscopic appendectomy was performed without postoperative complications...

Since the inception of the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society (PCICS) in 2003, remarkable advances in the care of children with critical cardiac disease have been developed. Specialized surgical approaches, anesthesiology practices, and intensive care management have all contributed to improved outcomes. However, significant morbidity often results from immunologic or infectious disease in the perioperative period or during a medical intensive care unit admission. The immunologic or infectious illness may lead to fever, which requires the attention and resources of the cardiac intensivist...

We investigated MBL2 and MASP2 genotypes, serum MBL (mannose-binding lectin) levels and activities of its complexes with associated serine proteases (MASP-1, MASP -2), in relation to complications following cardiac surgery in 195 children. The incidence of SIRS was lower in patients carrying MBL2 A/O and O/O genotypes (p=0.024). Children with MBL levels <500ng/ml had a lower risk of SIRS (p=0.014) and fever (p=0.044). Median MBL concentration was higher in patients who developed SIRS (p=0.048) but lower in those with post-operative infections (p=0...
