  • Nasoseptal Flap Necrosis After Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery in the Setting of SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19. [Case Reports]
    World Neurosurg. 2020 May 29 [Online ahead of print]Talmor G, Grube JG, … Hsueh WD
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of NSF necrosis in a patient with COVID-19. We postulate that the thrombotic complications of COVID-19 may have contributed to vascular pedicle thrombosis and NSF necrosis. Although the pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 and its effect on the nasal tissues is still being elucidated, this case highlights some challenges of performing endoscopic skull base surgery in the era of COVID-19.

  • Dexmedetomidine and worsening hypoxemia in the setting of COVID-19: A case report. [Case Reports]
    Am J Emerg Med. 2020 May 27 [Online ahead of print]Stockton J, Kyle-Sidell C
  • Emergency department management of hypoxemia in the setting of COVID-19 is riddled with uncertainty. The lack of high-quality research has translated to an absence of clarity at the bedside. With disease spread outpacing treatment consensus, provider discretion has taken on a heightened role. Here, we report a case of dexmedetomidine use in the setting of worsening hypoxemia, whereby oxygenation …
    Ann Vasc Surg. 2020 May 28 [Online ahead of print]Gomez-Arbelaez D, Ibarra-Sanchez G, … Gonzalez-Fajardo JA
  • COVID-19 may predispose patients to an increased risk of thrombotic complications through various pathophysiological mechanisms. Most of the reports on a high incidence of thrombotic complications are in relation to deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, while the evidence about arterial thrombosis in patients with COVID-19 is limited. We describe four cases of aortic thrombosis and associa…
  • Neuroleptic malignant syndrome in patients with COVID-19. [Case Reports]
