Highlights

  • Comparative Analysis of Anatomy Following Intraoperative Cholangiograms in Elective Laparoscopic Cholecystectomies

  • The Value of Doppler Venous Pressure Index in Chronic Venous Disease of the Lower Limbs

    The diagnostic evaluation of chronic venous disease (CVD) of the lower limbs (LLs) is mainly based on duplex ultrasound (DUS). Invasive venous pressure measurements (VPMs) are seldom performed in specialized centers with still controversial results.

The Macintosh Laryngoscope: the Mechanism of Laryngeal Exposure and the Optimal Maneuver
The Macintosh laryngoscope enables safer and easy intubation. However, the mechanism of laryngeal exposure remains unclear. I hypothesized that extension of the hyoepiglottic ligament contributes to elevation of the epiglottis, and laryngoscope maneuvers that pull the hyoid bone rostrally will effectively elevate the epiglottis and expose the glottides.

Intra-Vascular Occlusion of the Aorta for Massive Pelvic Trauma: A New Application

Globally, trauma remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality for all age groups with uncontrolled hemorrhage as the most common form of preventable death in the trauma setting. Specifically, non-compressible torso hemorrhage in trauma patients is known to have high mortality rates. Open aortic cross clamping via anterolateral thoracotomy has been the standard approach, but the procedure carries a high mortality risk. Full Text

Focused Abdominal Computed Tomography in Clinically Suspected Adolescent Acute Appendicitis
Acute appendicitis (AA) is one of the most common causes of acute non-traumatic abdominal pain. The use of computed tomography (CT) in facilitating the diagnosis of AA in patients above the age of 50 where right iliac fossa (RIF) pain may represent a wide spectrum of differentials is well established. However, few studies have explored the value of low radiation, unenhanced focused abdominal computed tomography (FACT) in adolescent patients where AA represents the main differential for RIF pain.
