  • Chronic Serratia marcescens sternal infection presenting 13 years after coronary artery surgery. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2019; 62:50-53Chinn A, Knabel M, … Almassi GH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Nosocomial or hospital-associated clusters of S. marcescens infection are known, but isolated infections seldom occur. S. marcescens infections in cardiac surgery patients are unusual. Only a single report described a chronic sternal infection resulting from S. marcescens that was identified 15 years after an initial episode caused by the same organism in a heart transplant recipient who was immunocompromised. Diabetes and non-absorbable braided sutures placed for hemostasis at the wire sites were probably contributing factors to our patient's chronic infection.This report described the presentation and treatment of a chronic S. marcescens sternal abscess that occurred 13 years after CABG. Chronic sternal infections due to this organism in cardiac surgery patients are exceeding rare.
  • Live imaging the Foreign Body Response reveals how dampening inflammation reduces fibrosis. [Journal Article]
    J Cell Sci 2019Gurevich DB, French KE, … Martin P
  • Implanting biomaterials in tissues leads to inflammation and a Foreign Body Response (FBR), which can result in rejection. Here we live image the FBR triggered by surgical suture implantation in a translucent zebrafish model and compare with an acute wound response. We observe inflammation extending from the suture margins, and correlating with subsequent avascular and fibrotic encapsulation zone…
  • A novel, low fidelity simulator for laryngotracheal reconstruction. [Journal Article]
    Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 125:212-215Kavanagh KR, Murray N
  • CONCLUSIONS: We present a readily available, easy to construct, and low cost simulation model for open airway reconstruction that can be used as a stand-alone simulator or in preparation for an animal dissection course. Our participants reported that the model had acceptable tissue characteristics to practice performing laryngotracheal reconstruction with a cartilage graft.
