Recurrent Osseous Choristoma Involving the Mandibular Buccal Vestibule: A Case Report

Curtis Gregoire, Clayton Davis, Martin Bullock and Thomas Steeves

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 19, 2015

This case report is the third ever reported of a recurrent intraoral osseous choristoma. The lesion had manifested twice in the left mandibular buccal vestibule of a 63-year-old Caucasian female. The patient was treated with wide local excision on both occasions. We believe that the lesions may have arisen as a result of previous trauma, although the exact etiology of the lesions is unknown. Interestingly, the recurrent lesion contained satellite nodules of bone, which suggests that the osseous ...

The New Paradigm for the Treatment of Chronic Pancreatitis

Rainer W.G. Gruessner

Article Type: Opinion | First Published: March 10, 2015

Effective treatment of chronic pancreatitis remains one of the greatest surgical challenges to date. Th incidence of chronic pancreatitis ranges from 3 to 10 cases per 100,000 populations per year worldwide. In the United States alone, more than 50,000 hospitalizations per year are caused by this disease. Chronic pancreatitis is an inflammatory process, progressive and irreversible in nature that eventually leads to complete destruction of pancreatic parenchyma and ductal structures....

Erythropoietin Treatment Improves Peak VO2 and Oxygen Uptake Efficiency Slope without Changing VE vs. VCO2 Slope in Anemic Patients

Ayumi Goda, Haruki Itoh, Yoshiko Ebi, Kumiko Kondo, Tomoko Maeda and Toshitsune Shimada

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 20, 2015

The aim of this study was to evaluate the improvement in hemodynamic, metabolic, and ventilatory response during exercise along with the improvement of anemia with EPO treatment in anemic hemodialysis patients. Methods: Thirty-seven hemodialysis patients with anemia (48.8 +/- 13.6 years) received EPO (1500 or 3000 unit, 3 times a week). Parameters measured prospectively before and after EPO treatment included hemoglobin, cardiac output by dye dilution method, echocardiography, and cardiopulmonar...

The Concentration for Loss of Consciousness by Propofol does not differ between Morning and Afternoon

Kumiko Tanabe, Shigemi Matsumoto, Mayumi Nakanishi and Hiroki Iida

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: March 20, 2015

Background: Circadian rhythms influence the pharmacology and effects of anesthetic agents such as local anesthetics, general anesthetics, and muscle relaxants. However, the influences of the circadian rhythm on new anesthetics such as propofol are unknown. Results: Thirty-seven patients underwent induced anesthesia at 8:30. Twenty-eight patients were induced between 14:00 and 16:00.There was no significant difference between the two groups in the predicted blood concentration, the predicted effe...

Cost - Benefit Analysis of Focused Pre-Operative Transthoracic Echocardiography in the Pre-Operative Clinic in Patients at Increased Cardiac Risk Presenting for Non-Cardiac Surgery - A Pilot Study

David Neale, Daryl Williams and David Canty

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: March 13, 2015

In a prospective observational study, focused transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) performed in the preoperative clinic on 100 patients with increased cardiac risk resulted in a change in management of 54% and a net reduction in use of hospital resources. The aims of this study are to apply a cost benefit analysis to demonstrate whether or not this translated into saving money for the hospital....
