Sports Med 2021 Aug 2. Epub 2021 Aug 2.

KBR, Human Physiology, Performance, Protection and Operations Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center, 2101 NASA Parkway, Houston, TX, 77058, USA.

Due to improvements in acute burn care over the last few decades, most patients with severe burns (up to 90% of the total body surface) survive. However, the metabolic and cardiovascular complications that accompany a severe burn can persist for up to 3 years post injury. Accordingly, there is now a greater appreciation of the need for strategies that can hasten recovery and reduce long-term morbidity post burn. Read More

Reassessment of Prostate Biopsy Specimens for Patients Referred for Robot-assisted Radical Prostatectomy Rarely Influences Surgical Planning.

Eur Urol Open Sci 2021 Jun 27;28:36-42. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Department of Urology, Catharina Hospital Eindhoven, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Background: The minimum volume standard is 100 robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) procedures per hospital in the Netherlands, so patients have to be referred to high-volume surgical centers for RARP. During preoperative work-up, prostate biopsies taken elsewhere are reassessed, with upgrading or downgrading of the initial Gleason grade group a possible consequence.

Objective: To determine if prostate biopsy reassessment leads to adjustment of the surgical plan regarding a nerve-sparing approach and extended pelvic lymph node dissection (ePLND) during RARP. Read More

Atlas and feature based 3D pathway visualization enhancement for skull base pre-operative fast planning from head CT.

Proc SPIE Int Soc Opt Eng 2015 Feb 18;9415. Epub 2015 Mar 18.

Electrical Engineering Department, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA 98195-2500.

Minimally invasive neuroendoscopic surgery provides an alternative to open craniotomy for many skull base lesions. These techniques provides a great benefit to the patient through shorter ICU stays, decreased post-operative pain and quicker return to baseline function. However, density of critical neurovascular structures at the skull base makes planning for these procedures highly complex. Read More

Finite element modeling to predict procedural success of thoracic endovascular aortic repair in type A aortic dissection.

JTCVS Tech 2020 Dec 13;4:40-47. Epub 2020 Oct 13.

Cardiology and Aortic Centre, Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, London, United Kingdom.

Objective: Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is recommended for type B aortic dissection and recently has even been used in selected cases of proximal (Stanford type A) aortic dissections in scenarios of prohibitive surgical risk. However, mechanical interactions between the native aorta and stent-graft are poorly understood, as some cases ended in failure. The aim of this study is to explore and better understand biomechanical changes after TEVAR and predict the result via virtual stenting. Read More

Understanding the Process and Challenges for Return-to-Work Post-Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation from a Musculoskeletal Perspective: A Narrative Review.

Occup Ther Int 2021 6;2021:5568513. Epub 2021 Jul 6.

Rehabilitation Association for Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation, Gloucester, UK.

The current paper seeks to inform healthcare professionals on how adapting various components of return to work (RTW) programs that are already in use by other musculoskeletal rehabilitation settings can help optimize return to work process for patients with or without musculoskeletal manifestations, posthematopoietic cell transplantation. Since there is no universally agreed RTW structure for hematopoietic cell transplant patients, a narrative approach has been taken utilizing evidence from the existing musculoskeletal return to work assessment publications to help draw parallel for the hematopoietic cell transplant patients. Databases were searched including PUBMED, CINHAL, AMED, SCOPUS, and Cochrane using keywords RTW, functional restoration program, hematopoietic cell transplant, bone marrow transplant, stem cell transplant, and musculoskeletal functional assessment.
