A massive upper abdominal tumor:
An unusual mechanism of atelectasis and cardiac tamponade. Anesthesiology.

Published: 2012 Nov;117(5):1129

An upper abdominal tumor may compress the lung as well as the right atrium, resulting in atelectasis and cardiac tamponade. Increasing pericardial pressure reduces and offsets filling pressure (intracardiac minus pericardial pressure), leading to initial impairment of right heart function, and ultimately of all four cardiac chambers. Decompression and removal of the mass can restore pulmonary function and normalize stroke volume, thereby improving arterial blood pressure.

The use of proximal fixed modular stems in revision of total hip arthroplasty. J Arthroplasty.

Published: 2006 Jun;21(4 Suppl 1):112-116.

Proximally fixed femoral stems in revision of total hip arthroplasties (THAs) have had inconsistent results. Our aim was to determine the safety and efficacy of a new proximally fixed modular stem in THA revision. Fifty-three patients underwent THA revision with the Exactech AccuMatch M-Series (Gainesville, Fla) modular stem and were followed up prospectively for an average of 2.5 years with preoperative and postoperative Harris Hip Score and SF-12 scores. A small number of complications were reported. One stem was revised within 4 weeks due to subsidence. No later mechanical failure cases were reported. Postoperative Harris Hip Score and SF-12 improved significantly. The use of this modular stem system appears to be safe and efficacious regarding fixation and function in the short term.

Hip arthroscopy technique and indications. J Arthroplasty.

Released on: 2006 Jun;21(4 Suppl 1):68-73.

About this publication: The recent advances in hip arthroscopy have made it a useful minimally invasive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of intra-articular hip pathology. It offers the benefits of being an outpatient procedure with short rehabilitation and few reported complications and does not hinder opportunities for future surgical interventions. The lateral approach has been widely accepted, and technical details are discussed. Patients typically present with mechanical symptoms and persistent pain resistant to a reasonable trial of conservative treatment and are without significant joint space narrowing. Indications include debridement of labral lesions and loose bodies as well as treatment of impingement syndrome and avascular necrosisArthroscopy has also proven a useful tool in evaluation components in symptomatic patients after hip arthroplasty and in the treatment of native and replacement joint infections.
