Epilepsy Surgery: A Paediatric Perspective

., 2010). It is this cohort of paediatric patients who may benefit from surgical treatment, as their brains are capable of reorganizing their neurologic function post-operatively (Sheng et al, 2017; Cross et al., 2006). Many types of epilepsy surgery exist including temporal resections, excision of seizure provoking lesions or developmental malformations, sectioning of the corpus callosum and hemispherectomies (Dwivedi, etal. 2017). Without such intervention, uncontrolled seizures may create

Preoperative coagulation studies to predict blood component usage in coronary artery bypass graft surgery

Bleeding remains a serious complication of cardiac surgery. Studies indicate that preoperative fibrinogen concentration is an independent predictor of blood loss during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. This study evaluates whether fibrinogen concentration is a better predictor of blood usage than the prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) tests. Patients not taking clopidogrel bisulfate who underwent CABG surgery during a 3-month period at a 350-bed

Background: Considered rotation of the occlusal plane and the maxillomandibular complex during orthognathic surgery is an approach that enables optimisation of the functional and aesthetic outcomes of surgical-orthodontic treatment for the correction of a variety of dentofacial deformities. Objectives: The objectives of this study are to: (1) retrospectively evaluate the stability of clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation of the occlusal plane during orthognathic surgery, and (2) compare the

For adult patients with severe mandibular protrusion, only orthognathic surgery can improve facial aesthetics and correct the skeletal discrepancy. Conventional three-stage orthognathic surgery, which incorporates presurgical, surgical and postsurgical stages, is the most widely accepted procedure for correcting skeletal deformities to produce

The use of neuromonitoring in descending and thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery. Literature Review

Without surgical repair thoracic aortic aneurysms are a lethal disease with poor prognosis. An extensive major operation is required to correct an aneurysm that involves the descending or thoracoabdominal aorta. Particular considerations must be made to protection of all abdominal organs, the brain and the spinal cord which are all at risk. Consequently there is a risk that these patients post operatively wake up paraplegic from spinal cord ischaemia due to the nature of the surgery. Certain

The utility of high-frequency ultrasonography in preoperative assessment of vulvar Paget’s disease – a case report

Introduction Paget’s disease of the vulva (PDV) is a rare superficial skin cancer accounting for less than 1% of all vulvar neoplasias(1). Extramammary manifestation occurs in the apocrine glands and is a form of intraepidermal adenocarcinoma(2,3). The most commonly affected regions are the vulva, perineum, perianal region, scrotum, penis, or pubic area(4). Although surgery is the most effective treatment, a complete excision is challenging due to PDV intraepithelial reticular spread(2

Chimerism and mosaicism are important causes of ABO phenotype and genotype discrepancies

Discrepancies between blood group genotype and RBC phenotype are important to recognize when implementing DNA-based blood grouping techniques. This report describes two such cases involving the ABO blood group in the Korean population. Propositus #1 was a 22-year-old healthy man undergoing pretransfusion testing for minor surgery. Propositus #2 was a 23year-old male blood donor. RBCs from both propositi were determined to be group AB and demonstrated unusual agglutination patterns on forward

Immunoprophylaxis using intravenous Rh immune globulin should be standard practice when selected D-negative patients are transfused with D-positive random donor platelets

A 67-year-old female developed excessive bleeding and thrombocytopenia following cardiovascular surgery. Her blood type was group A, D–. The only platelet products available in the transfusion service were random donor platelet concentrates from D+ donors. She was transfused with a pool of 6 D+ random donor platelet concentrates. Anti-D undetected in her pretransfusion serum by solid-phase antibody screen was present 11 days later. Retrospectively, the patient provided a history of having

Consent and complete records were obtained, including pre-treatment photographs, radiographs and cephalometric superimpositions over an eight-year period from initial presentation until retention. Results: Distraction osteogenesis in combination with orthodontics successfully managed the dentoalveolar and soft tissue defect

planning options, there were no statistically significant differences related to the treatment options of growth modification (p = 0.720), orthognathic surgery (p = 0.101), and/or an extraction decision (p = 0.840). Conclusion: Lateral cephalometric radiographs did not significantly influence orthodontists’ diagnosis. There was also little evidence to demonstrate the radiograph’s efficacy in treatment planning cases with no skeletal discrepancy or no significant labiolingual incisor

Additionally, we evaluated the expression of TRPV1 in dorsal root ganglia (DRG) by western blotting after PRE- and POST-treatment with RTX. Results: Our results showed that the CCI mice developed prolonged mechanical allodynia-like behavior in ipsilateral paw after surgery up to 24 hours. The PRE- and

A prospective, observational study for optimization of antibody screening in pretransfusion compatibility testing

54 months of the study period, a total of 22,888 patient samples were studied. The majority of patients were from hemato-oncology and blood marrow transplant, hepatobiliary sciences and liver transplant, cardiac surgery, and medical intensive care units (Fig. 2). The prevalence of unexpected antibodies detected in our study was less than 1 percent (0.87%; 198). Of the 198 AS+ patients, 145 (0.63%) were found to have alloantibodies while the remaining 53 (0.24%) had autoantibodies with clinical

The indications for the endosonographic examination of the prostate gland are patological changes found in the per rectum examination, elevated concentration of the prostate-specific antigen in the blood serum, cancer and inflammations of the prostate gland if an abscess is suspected, qualification for surgery in the course of benign prostatic hyperplasia and the

Ultrasound examinations applied in the diagnostics of benign prostatic hyperplasia accelerated the diagnosis, facilitated the qualification to surgery and the selection of the treatment method. The assessment of the size of the prostate gland performed using the endorectal ultrasound examination is helpful in making the choice between transurethral electroresection and adenomectomy. In prostate inflammation this examination should be performed with particular gentleness due
