Current Situation and Challenges in Vitreous Substitutes.

Macromol Biosci 2021 May 13:e2100066. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Pharmacology, Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Technology, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Santiago de Compostela (USC), Santiago de Compostela, 15782, Spain.

Vitreo-retinal disorders constitute a significant portion of treatable ocular diseases. These pathologies often require vitreo-retinal surgery and, as a consequence, the use of vitreous substitutes. Nowadays, the vitreous substitutes that are used in clinical practice are mainly divided into gases (air, SF , C F , C F ) and liquids (perfluorocarbon liquids, silicone oils, and heavy silicone oils).

"Peanut saves the day": an innovative solution to massive, cryptogenic haemoptysis-a case study.

Respirol Case Rep 2021 Jun 7;9(6):e00754. Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Anaesthesia and Critical Care Aster CMI Hospital Bengaluru India.

Massive (or life-threatening) haemoptysis is a time-sensitive emergency encountered by a physician that requires an interdisciplinary, collaborative effort to arrest the bleeding in a prompt and timely manner. Placement of an endobronchial Watanabe spigot (EWS) to halt haemoptysis is a relatively recent technique finding its wide application in airway pathology, with the current extension of its use to bronchial bleeding. However, the lack of immediate access to EWS gives rise to the need to innovate with day-to-day materials used in routine surgical practice and available in resource-limited settings, which may serve the purpose of a spigot.

CT scan assessment of intrauterine balloon tamponade failure for the treatment of atonic postpartum hemorrhage: implications for treatment.

BJOG 2021 May 3. Epub 2021 May 3.

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Kyoto University, Kyoto, 606-8507, Japan.

Uterine atony is one of the leading causes of maternal death, and the use of intrauterine balloon tamponade is recommended for the treatment of atonic postpartum hemorrhage. The success rate of balloon tamponade for uterine atony is high, but some cases with atonic postpartum hemorrhage require arterial embolization or hysterectomy. Therefore, it is important to understand the underlying causes of refractory atonic postpartum hemorrhage and the limitations of balloon tamponade to choose an appropriate treatment for atonic postpartum hemorrhage.
