Analysis of the Results on Perioperative Blood Loss after a Total Knee Arthroplasty Employing Tranexamic Acid Before or After Inflating the Tourniquet

Ana Torres, Mariano Fernandez-Fairen, Daniel Hernandez Vaquero and Jose Sueiro Fernandez

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 30, 2014

Introduction: Tranexamic acid has showed its good results reducing blood loss in total knee arthroplasties. It has also probed being cost-effective (red cell concentrate: 350 euros/ TXA vial 3, 05 euros) but it remains not being clear at what time during the surgery we have to administrate it. In this prospective, randomized study, we have investigated the effects of the use of tranexamic acid before or after inflating the tourniquet on blood loss, transfusion needs and thromboembolic complicati...

Although transitional cell carcinoma is the most common tumour of the renal pelvis, we report the first histologically-confirmed case in our service in a period of about twenty years. The patient is a midaged female African, with no apparent risks for the disease. She presented with the classical sign of the disease (hematuria) and was treated by nephrouretectomy for a pT3N0MX grade II renal pelvic tumour. She is reporting well one year after surgery. The case highlights not only the peculiar di...

Is Left Ventricular Hypertrophy Early Regression Possible?

Delgado-Baeza Emilio, Quintana-Villamandos Begona

Article Type: Editorial | First Published: September 30, 2014

It is well established that hypertension is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) is a relevant problem in patients with hypertension because of its role in long-term severe cardiovascular diseases, including ventricular arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, stroke and sudden death. There is a relationship between the regression of LVH and a decreased morbidity and mortality. Treatment to achieve regression of ...

Airway Management in a Patient with Metatropic Dysplasia: Grossly Abnormal Anatomy Combined with a Low Functional Residual Capacity

Joseph G. Werner, Alberto A. Uribe, Karina Castellon-Larios, Sergio D. Bergese and Matthew P. McKierna

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 29, 2014

Difficult intubation is a constant concern in surgical and critical care settings due to its direct relationship with morbidity and mortality. The incidence reported in literature varies between 0.1% to 13% and reaches 14% in the obese population. The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) defined difficult airway as a situation in which a trained anesthesiologist experiences difficulty with facemask ventilation of the upper airway, difficulty with tracheal intubation, or both. They also de...
