Preoperative Evaluation in Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty for Secondary Penetrating Keratoplasty Graft Failure

Khaled Safadi, Ron Kaufman, Eleanor Nche, Denise Wajnsztajn and Itay Lavy

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 28, 2021

Over the past decade, Penetrating Keratoplasty (PKP) graft failure has been increasingly managed by Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK). Moreover, Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT) is becoming as essential modality for perioperative evaluation. Our aim is to share important surgical considerations and modifications based on preoperative evaluation using AS-OCT and, consequently, present our clinical and surgical outcomes of DMEK performed for secondary PKP graf...

Risk Perception Associated with Covid-19 Pandemic among Anesthetists: A Cross-Sectional Study

Salah N El-Tallawy, MD, MSc, Maher A Titi, MSc, Abdelaziz A Eja, MD, Ahmed Abdulmomen, MD, Hala Elmorshed, MD, Jumana Baaj, MD, Mohamed Alharbi, MD and Ahmad Alqatari, MD

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: August 20, 2021

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the anesthesiologists are involved in the riskiest interventions e.g. airway management, and resuscitation. So, they are subjected to a higher risk of infection compared to other medical specialties. This study aimed to assess the level of anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder during COVID-19 pandemic among anesthesiologists. This is a cross-sectional, hospital-based survey conducted after getting IRB approval. The primary outcomes a...

Comparison of Neurovascular Structures at Risk during Ankle Arthroscopy: A Cadaveric Study

Ramez Sakkab, DPM, Varsha Salunkhe, DPM, Monica Jung, DPM, MS, Kristina Corley, DPM, Jae Yoon Kim, DPM and Gautam Sowda, BS

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: August 30, 2021

Arthroscopy has become increasingly common for diagnosis and treatment of ankle joint pathology. The four most common portals used for ankle arthroscopy are the anteromedial (AM), anterolateral (AL), posteromedial (PM), and posterolateral (PL). And anatomy of neurovascular structures (NVS) along the ankle can significantly vary. The distance of NVS was compared to anatomic landmarks of ankle arthroscopic portals to verify safe zones for scope insertion. Twenty-six fresh-frozen cadavers were util...

Alignment-Free Joint Angles Measurement Using Virtual Reference Coordinate System

John Pontius and Seung-Jae Kim

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: August 29, 2021

In order to overcome the difficulty in aligning specimens accurately within a reference system for angular kinematic measurements, a method of using a virtual reference coordinate system was designed and implemented in conjunction with using an optical motion capture device. The virtual coordinate system is created by digitizing three identifiable points in space. In this way, angular measurements of specimens can be described with respect to the virtual coordinate system to be anatomically rele...

Proposed Biology of the Spontaneous Remission of Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Behzad Niakan

Article Type: Clinical Case | First Published: August 30, 2021

Case Reports of the Spontaneous regression or remission of hepatocellular carcinoma was studied. Two common factors were noted among the prolonged spontaneous remission or regression of hepatocellular carcinoma. Low blood oxygen and a short and steady or rapid growth of hepatocellular carcinoma before the spontaneous remission or regression of hepatocellular carcinoma. It is suggested that the rapid growth of the hepatocellular carcinoma faced with low blood oxygen has possibly resulted in the h...

Pulse Wave Velocity is an Independent Predictor of Office Hypertension

İsmail Sahin, MD, Ömer Şatıroğlu, MD, Hakan Duman, MD, Ali Gokhan Ozyildiz, MD, and Murtaza Emre Durakoğlugil, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 25, 2021

Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cf-PWV) is the gold standard measure of arterial stiffness and a stronger predictor of poor outcomes for cardiovascular events. Pulse wave velocity is closely related to blood pressure, but its effect on office hypertension (OHT) is unclear. The study aims to investigate the relationship between OHT and cf-PWV. This was a prospective, singlecenter, clinical trial. A total of 102 subjects were included in the study: 48 patients with OHT and 54 subjects with no...

Determination of Factors Influencing the Activities of PR Interval on the Electrocardiogram (ECG) in an Experiment of the Factorial Type

Adisa Jamiu SAKA

Article Type: Medical Statistics | First Published: August 16, 2021

Human heart is a strong muscle that pumps blood to the body. A normal, healthy adult heart is about the size of human clenched fist and it is like an engine that makes a car works, moves and functions properly as such, the heart keeps the body running. A healthy heart supplies the body with just the right amount of blood at the right rate for whatever the body is doing at that time. The flow of blood to the heart could be reduced by plaque build-up or blockage by a plaque suddenly ruptures, thes...

Efficacy and Safety of Rilpivirine-Based Antiretroviral Therapy in Treatment-Naïve and Treatment-Experienced HIV-1- Positive Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Clinical Trials

Lazzarin A, Rusconi S, Antinori A, Galeone C, Uglietti A, Termini R and Mancusi D

Article Type: Meta-Analysis | First Published: August 16, 2021

Rilpivirine (RPV) is a second-generation non-nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor used in combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) in naive and experienced HIV-positive adult subjects. To evaluate its efficacy and safety in these patient settings, we performed a metaanalysis of randomized controlled trials with available data at 48 and 96 weeks of follow-up. We considered 4 studies involving 2336 cART-naïve patients and 8 studies involving 3165 cART-experienced virologically controlled p...

Cardiac Anesthesia Would Be Better With Ultrasound Guided Erector Spinae Plane Block

AHMED Hassan S, MD, MADKHALI Majeed M, MD, SHIHATA Mohammed S, MD and ZABANI Ibramin A, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 28, 2021

On July 2020, The International Association for the Study of Pain released the revised definition of pain. Stressing that pain is always a personal experience and should be respected. Candidates of cardiac surgical procedures have significant issues to address regarding outcome of procedure and post-operative pain as well. Cardiac surgical procedures are done either through midline sternotomy or thoracotomy; both are associated with significant pain. Pain can be debilitating and frustrating. It ...

Pseudocholinesterase Deficiency and Patient Perspectives

Jevaughn Davis, MD, Anita Vincent, MD, and Geetha Shanmugam, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 25, 2021

Pseudocholinesterase deficiency, commonly referred to as Butyrylcholinesterase deficiency, is a rare, inherited, or acquired condition that results in decreased or absent enzymatic activity. Pseudocholinesterase is a plasma enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of succinylcholine and mivacurium, which are commonly used paralytic agents. People with this condition are usually unaware they have the disease, and the disease may not manifest until extubation at the end of surgery. These patie...
