BACKGROUND: To better understand the role of acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) in a surgical setting with high risk of bleeding, we analyzed all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in the setting of cardiac surgery that compared ANH with standard intraoperative care. The aim was to assess the incidence of ANH-related number of allogeneic red blood cell units (RBCu) transfused. Secondary outcomes included the rate of allogeneic blood transfusion and estimated total blood loss. METHODS: Twenty-nine RCTs for a total of 2439 patients (1252 patients in the ANH group and 1187 in the control group) were included in our meta-analysis using PubMed/MEDLINE, Cochrane Controlled Trials Register, and EMBASE...

A young adult man presented to the emergency department reporting a convincing story for acute aortic dissection, a disorder in which diagnostic evaluations should occur in parallel with pharmacologic management. Transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated normal cardiac and aortic structures. Additional history was notable for extensive travel across numerous medical facilities with associated misrepresentation of his diagnosis and treatment. The patient was willing to undergo unpleasant and invasive procedures and succeeded at least once in the past to deceive clinicians to the point of performing a median sternotomy...

OBJECTIVE: The management strategy for type A acute aortic dissection (AAD) with intramural hematoma (IMH) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of emergency surgery and medical treatment for patients with acute type A IMH. METHODS: One hundred seventy-one patients with acute type A IMH, whose average age was 69.4 years (range, 39-90 years) were divided into 3 groups: groups I and II consisted of 74 and 33 patients undergoing emergency surgery for complicated and uncomplicated type A IMH, respectively, and group III comprised 66 patients who were treated conservatively...

BACKGROUND: Sufficiently large, prospective randomized trials comparing suction drainage and nonsuction drainage are lacking. The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of suction drainage and nonsuction drainage on the postoperative course in patients who have undergone lung resection. METHODS: This prospective, randomized trial included patients undergoing different types of lung resections. On the day of surgery, suction drainage at -20 cm H2O was used...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether mediastinal lymph node dissection improves survival compared with mediastinal lymph node sampling in patients undergoing resection for N0 or nonhilar N1, T1, or T2 non-small cell lung cancer. METHODS: Patients with non-small cell lung cancer underwent sampling of 2R, 4R, 7, and 10R for right-sided tumors and 5, 6, 7, and 10L for left-sided tumors. If all tumors were negative for malignancy, patients were randomized to no further lymph node sampling (mediastinal lymph node sampling) or complete mediastinal lymph node dissection...

BACKGROUND: Continuous coronary perfusion during Norwood reconstruction offers the theoretic advantage of less postoperative cardiac dysfunction. The avoidance of a cardiac and circulatory arrest period allows time for a more deliberate aortic reconstruction while the heart remains beating. This single-center study was designed to compare patient results using this method vs standard cardiac arrest for Norwood reconstruction. METHODS: A retrospective review was done of 32 patients undergoing Norwood reconstruction from November 2004 to July 2011...

The appropriate selection of lung transplant recipients is an important determinant of outcomes. This consensus document is an update of the recipient selection guidelines published in 2006. The Pulmonary Council of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) organized a Writing Committee of international experts to provide consensus opinion regarding the appropriate timing of referral and listing of candidates for lung transplantation. A comprehensive search of the medical literature was conducted with the assistance of a medical librarian...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) provides days to weeks of support for patients with respiratory, cardiac, or combined cardiopulmonary failure. Since ECMO was first reported in 1974, nearly 70,000 runs of ECMO have been implemented, and the use of ECMO in adults increased by more than 400% from 2006 to 2011 in the United States. A variety of factors, including the 2009 influenza A epidemic, results from recent clinical trials, and improvements in ECMO technology, have motivated this increased use in adults...

OBJECTIVES: To review left ventricular assist device physiology, initial postoperative management, common complications, trouble shooting and management of hypotension, and other common ICU problems. DATA SOURCE: Narrative review of relevant medical literature. DATA SYNTHESIS: Left ventricular assist devices prolong the lives of patients with end-stage heart failure, and their use is increasing. Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices have replaced first-generation pulsatile devices...

A method, based on well-established trauma principles, is described for surgical management of serious intrathoracic bleeding complications that can occur during the extraction of pacemaker or defibrillator leads. Using this method, four patients who experienced rapid hemodynamic deterioration due to traumatic injury of the superior vena cava and its tributaries during defibrillator lead extraction underwent successful surgical repair. Perioperative preparation for high-risk lead extractions, management of major bleeding complications, and surgical repair techniques are discussed...
