  • Lung Volume Reduction in Pulmonary Emphysema. [Journal Article]
    Semin Respir Crit Care Med. 2020 May 20 [Online ahead of print]Garner JL, Shah PL
  • Severe emphysema with hyperinflation presents a therapeutic challenge. Inhaled medication has limited efficacy in individuals with mechanical constraints to the respiratory pump and impaired gas exchange. Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) reestablishes some semblance of normal physiology, resecting grossly expanded severely diseased tissue to restore the function of compromised relatively heal…
  • Robotic Inguinal Hernia Repair. [Journal Article]
    Surg Technol Int. 2020 May 20; 36Edelman DS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Robotic inguinal hernia repair is safe and effective. 1) Proper training, including simulators and proctors, is necessary; 2) having the same operating room team and an interested first assistant at the OR table is very helpful; 3) the learning curve is about 50 patients; 4) postoperative narcotics are rarely more than three hydrocodone pills; 4) no fixation of the mesh is necessary, but fibrin sealant was used routinely in these patients; and 5) urinary retention is the most common postoperative issue and is best planned for by knowing the patients urinary history, use of peripheral alpha-blockers, and straight catheterization in the OR at the conclusion of the surgery. OR time was longer than standard laparoscopic herniorrhaphy but decreased with experience. The robotic technique allowed for an excellent view of the myopectineal orifice and appears to have a low complication rate.
  • Postoperative Thecal Sac Compression Induced by Hydrogel Dural Sealant after Spinal Schwannoma Removal. [Case Reports]
    Korean J Neurotrauma. 2020 Apr; 16(1):99-104.Han HJ, Jeong JH, … Seung WB
  • Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak is a common complication of spinal and cranial surgery, and patients undergoing spinal tumor surgery are probably particularly predisposed due to the presence of an intradural tumor and many other factors. Furthermore, a meticulous dural closure technique does not always result in watertight closure. A number of adjunctive methods have been used to assist with dural…
  • Cork oak and climate change: Disentangling drought effects on cork chemical composition. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2020 May 08; 10(1):7800.Leite C, Oliveira V, … Pereira H
  • Climate change induces in the Mediterranean region more frequent and extreme events, namely, heat waves and droughts, disturbing forest species and affecting their productivity and product quality. The cork oak (Quercus suber) is present along the western Mediterranean basin and its outer bark (cork) is sustainably collected and used for several products, mainly wine bottle stoppers. Since most c…
  • Discoloration of surface sealants by plaque disclosing solution. [Journal Article]
    J Orofac Orthop. 2020 May 06 [Online ahead of print]Şen S, Erber R, … Lux CJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surface sealants show clinically relevant discoloration after exposure to plaque disclosing solution under in vitro conditions. Such discolorations could not be removed by professional tooth cleaning. Thus, in clinical practice, plaque disclosing solutions might cause esthetic deficits in surface sealant-treated teeth. The impact of plaque disclosing solutions under clinical conditions (e.g., in the presence of saliva and by various aspects of a person's nutrition) should be investigated in clinical studies.
  • Comparison and application of commercially available fibrin sealants in ophthalmology. [Review]
    Ocul Surf. 2020 Apr 29 [Online ahead of print]Somani SN, Moshirfar M, … Ronquillo YC
  • Fibrin glues carry many advantages over traditional suture as a tissue adhesive and have been increasingly used in a variety of ophthalmic procedures over the past 15 years. Several fibrin sealants are commercially available worldwide, each of which differs slightly in its composition and mechanism of delivery. The focus of our review is to briefly discuss the reported uses of fibrin in ophthalmi…
  • pH-responsive calcium and phosphate-ion releasing antibacterial sealants on carious enamel lesions in vitro. [Journal Article]
    J Dent. 2020 Jun; 97:103323.Ibrahim MS, Balhaddad AA, … Melo MAS
  • CONCLUSIONS: NACP incorporated into an antibacterial sealant protected the enamel against demineralization. pH-responsive calcium and phosphate-ion releasing sealants with antimicrobial and rechargeable properties may be a reliable complementary approach for caries management.Dental caries is the most common childhood disease. Enamel demineralization represents the initial stage of carious lesion formation and may lead to invasive dental procedures. We explored the role of amorphous calcium phosphate (NACP) in a newly-developed antibacterial and rechargeable dental sealant formulation as a preventive approach.
  • Spinal cerebrospinal fluid leak in the context of pars interarticularis fracture. [Journal Article]
    BMC Neurol. 2020 Apr 29; 20(1):162.Chan TLH, Cowan R, … Carroll I
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study highlights: 1) the importance of PI fracture as a possible culprit of suspected spinal CSF leak in patients with intracranial hypotension; 2) the added benefit of CT imaging for detecting bony abnormalities such as fractures in patients with intracranial hypotension; and 3) the successful treatment of suspected spinal CSF leak when targeting the fracture site.
  • Energy vessel sealant devices are associated with decreased risk of neck hematoma after thyroid surgery. [Journal Article]
    Updates Surg. 2020 Apr 24 [Online ahead of print]Moran K, Grigorian A, … Nahmias J
  • Postoperative neck hematomas following thyroidectomy occur in up to 6.5% of cases. It is unclear whether the use of energy vessel sealant devices effects the rate of PNH. We hypothesized use of an EVSD to be associated with decreased risk of PNH in patients undergoing thyroidectomy. The 2016-2017 American College of Surgeons Thyroidectomy database was queried for patients undergoing thyroidectomy…
  • Anti-biofilm activity of a novel pit and fissure self-adhesive sealant modified with metallic monomers. [Journal Article]
    Biofouling. 2020 Mar; 36(3):245-255.Cocco AR, Cuevas-Suárez CE, … Hwang G
  • Dental plaque is a biofilm composed of a complex oral microbial community. The accumulation of plaque in the pit and fissures of dental elements often leads to the development of tooth decay (dental caries). Here, potent anti-biofilm materials were developed by incorporating zinc methacrylates or di-n-butyl-dimethacrylate-tin into the light-curable sealant and their physical, mechanical, and biol…
