The Prognosis Impact of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) Plus Cytoreductive Surgery (CRS) in Advanced Ovarian Cancer: The Meta-Analysis
Background and Objective Previous studies about the prognostic value of the HIPEC have yielded controversial results. Therefore, this study aims to assess the impact of HIPEC on patients with ovarian cancer. Results We included 13 comparative studies, and found that the overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) in HIPEC groups were superior to groups…
Clinical Challenge: Effective De-Airing designed to Reduce the Risk of Air Embolism
Clinical Challenge: Effective De-Airing designed to Reduce the Risk of Air Embolism. Video presentation from Sanibel Symposium 2018 (18:10 minutes).
Hydrogen Peroxide Monitoring and Design Upgrade Customer Letter
The purpose of this letter is to advise you that LivaNova Deutschland GmbH (“LivaNova” or “the Company”) is executing a voluntary medical device correction for the 3T Heater-Cooler Systems (“3T”). This letter describes immediate action to be taken by you.
Emergent Cardiac Surgery During Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI): A Weighted Meta-Analysis of 9,251 Patients From 46 Studies
Refinement in transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) technology should not only focus on miniaturisation and improving flexibility of the delivery systems and/or devices -which may have the potential for decreasing aortic dissection, annular rupture, and tamponade- but also incorporate modifications to prevent embolisation/dislocation of the valve.
Implementation of a Mechanical CPR Device in a Physician Staffed HEMS – A Prospective Observational Study
In this prospective, observational study we describe the incidence and characteristics of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) cases who received mechanical CPR, after the implementation of a mechanical CPR device.
Hybrid Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation
Veno-venous (VV) and veno-arterial (VA) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy is widely used in critically ill patients with refractory cardiogenic shock and cardiac arrest or suffering from severe respiratory failure. Besides traditional ECMO cannulation, changes in patients’ conditions or the occurrence of specific complications (i.e., cerebral hypoxia or left ventricular dilation) may require modifications in cannulation strategies or the combination of ECMO with additional invasive or minimally invasive procedures, to improve organ function and ECMO efficiency.
Early LVAD Implantation in a Patient with Left Ventricular Failure after Aortic Dissection with Left Main Stem Involvement
Coronary involvement in aortic dissection heralds a poor outcome. Involvement of the left main stem may lead to left ventricular (LV) failure requiring mechanical circulatory support.
Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion Review of a Revolutionary Technology
Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is widely expanding technology to assess and prepare the lungs who are considered marginal for transplantation.
Acute Biventricular Mechanical Circulatory Support for Cardiogenic Shock
The aim of this study was to explore the clinical utility of percutaneously delivered BiPella as a novel acute mechanical support strategy for patients with cardiogenic shock complicated by biventricular failure.
Risk Factors of Perioperative Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump Complications in Cardiac Surgery: A 12-Year Single-Institution Analysis
This study investigated the incidence and risk factors of the complications in perioperative intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) supported cardiac surgical patients.
Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate for the Treatment of Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus: A Systematic Review of Outcomes
The goal of this perform a systematic review on the outcomes of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) for the treatment of chondral defects and osteoarthritis (OA) of the talus.
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Support in Post-Traumatic Cardiopulmonary Failure: A 10-Year Single Institutional Experience
Patients with multiple traumas associated with cardiopulmonary failure have a high mortality rate; however, such patients can be temporarily stabilized using extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), providing a bridge to rescue therapy.
