Split abdominal wall muscle flap repair vs patch repair of large congenital diaphragmatic hernias.
We hypothesized that a split abdominal wall muscle flap would reduce the risk of recurrence. A retrospective review of neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia in whom primary repair was not possible was performed. Kaplan-Meier analyses and Cox proportional hazards modeling were...
[Patient safety in oncology surgery: experience of the São Paulo State Cancer Institute].
Patient safety concerns in surgery are increasing. The frequency of surgery-related adverse events and errors is high, and most could be avoided. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) proposed the Universal Protocol (UP-JCAHO) for preventing wrong site, wrong proc...
Transarterial embolization of large complex arteriovenous fistula associated with hip joint surgery.

Most studies do not appear robust enough to support major policy decisions. There is a need for better data sources and consistent analyses...
Applying the Surgical Apgar Score.

Massive bleeding is a major cause of intraoperative death or death in the immediate postoperative period as a result of surgery. The present article describes the basic principles for the control of surgical bleeding as well as temporary and definitive maneuvers. Temporary control of bleeding can of...
Prevention of acute coronary events in noncardiac surgery: beta-blocker therapy and coronary revascularization.
During major vascular surgery, patients are at high risk for developing myocardial infarction and myocardial ischemia, and two risk-reduction strategies can be considered prior to surgery: pharmacological treatment and prophylactic coronary revascularization. beta-blockers are established therapeuti...
