Endonasal resection of orbital cavernous venous malformations with septal preservation.

Am J Otolaryngol 2021 Apr 5:103021. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, CA, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Multiple surgical approaches have been described to maximize visualization and accessibility for resection while minimizing morbidity in the patient with orbital intraconal tumors. Transnasal endoscopic approaches have become increasingly standard in select orbital cavernous venous malformations but often require a partial septectomy. The purpose of this manuscript is to communicate a septal preserving modified transseptal approach. Read More

Popliteal Artery Occlusion with Collateral Blood Flow in a Reducible Knee Dislocation During Pregnancy: A Case Report.

JBJS Case Connect 2021 04 9;11(2). Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Case: A 29-year-old healthy woman, 19 weeks pregnant, sustained a right posterolateral knee dislocation with multiligamentous injury and a complete occlusive injury to the right popliteal artery yet had adequate distal perfusion. She declined operative management for both the knee dislocation and the arterial injury, and successful collaboration between obstetrical, vascular, and orthopaedic surgical services resulted in limb preservation and restoration of function.

Conclusion: This is a unique case of traumatic complete popliteal artery occlusion with adequate collateral arterial perfusion after a reducible posterolateral knee dislocation in a pregnant patient that resulted in limb preservation with nonoperative management. Read More

Multi-scale mechanical and morphological characterisation of sintered porous magnesium-based scaffolds for bone regeneration in critical-sized defects.

Acta Biomater 2021 Apr 5. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Zeiss Global Centre, School of Mechanical and Design Engineering, University of Portsmouth, Anglesea Road, PO1 3DJ Portsmouth, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

Magnesium (Mg) and its alloys are very promising degradable, osteoconductive and osteopromotive materials to be used as regenerative treatment for critical-sized bone defects. Under load-bearing conditions, Mg alloys must display sufficient morphological and mechanical resemblance to the native bone they are meant to replace to provide adequate support and enable initial bone bridging. In this study, unique highly open-porous Mg-based scaffolds were mechanically and morphologically characterised at different scales. Read More

Pancreatic damage control: the pancreas is simple don't complicate it.

Colomb Med (Cali) 2020 Dec 30;51(4):e4164361. Epub 2020 Dec 30.

Professor Emeritus Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA, USA.

Pancreatic trauma is a rare but potentially lethal injury because often it is associated with other abdominal organ or vascular injuries. Usually, it has a late clinical presentation which in turn complicates the management and overall prognosis. Due to the overall low prevalence of pancreatic injuries, there has been a significant lack of consensus among trauma surgeons worldwide on how to appropriately and efficiently diagnose and manage them.

Medical high-protein nutrition therapy and loss of muscle mass in adult ICU patients: A randomized controlled trial.

Clin Nutr 2021 Feb 23;40(4):1562-1570. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences, Nutritional Physiology, University of Bonn, Nußallee 9, 53115, Bonn, Germany. Electronic address:

J Am Coll Emerg Physicians Open 2021 Apr 6;2(2):e12372. Epub 2021 Mar 6.

Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center Toledo Ohio USA.

Orbital compartment syndrome (OCS) is a rare, vision-threatening diagnosis that requires rapid identification and immediate treatment for preservation of vision. Because of the time-sensitive nature of this condition, the emergency physician plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of OCS, which is often caused by traumatic retrobulbar hemorrhage. In this review, we outline pearls and pitfalls for the identification and treatment of OCS, highlighting lateral canthotomy and inferior cantholysis (LCIC), a crucial skill for the emergency physician.

Prevention of Chronic Rejection of Marginal Kidney Graft by Using a Hydrogen Gas-Containing Preservation Solution and Adequate Immunosuppression in a Miniature Pig Model.

Front Immunol 2020 17;11:626295. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Department of Organ Fabrication, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

In clinical kidney transplantation, the marginal kidney donors are known to develop chronic allograft rejection more frequently than living kidney donors. In our previous study, we have reported that the hydrogen gas-containing organ preservation solution prevented the development of acute injuries in the kidney of the donor after cardiac death by using preclinical miniature pig model. In the present study, we verified the impact of hydrogen gas treatment in transplantation with the optimal immunosuppressive protocol based on human clinical setting by using the miniature pig model.

Does Reduced Renal Function Predispose to Cancer-specific Mortality from Renal Cell Carcinoma?

Eur Urol 2021 Mar 4. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Recent publications have reported an association between increased renal cancer-specific mortality (CSM) and reduced renal function "below safety limits," and advocated for partial nephrectomy (PN) even for potentially aggressive/complex tumors. We hypothesize that this association may be related to confounding factors rather than a consequence of functional differences.

Objective: To assess whether there is an independent association between preoperative estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) or new baseline eGFR (NB-GFR) and CSM in patients undergoing PN or radical nephrectomy (RN). Read More
