We report on 19 patients from Western Australia of pleural empyema with Klebsiella oxytoca, an organism never before reported in association with this condition. Median age was 65 years, 14/17 (83%) had been in hospital within 30 days prior to diagnosis, 12/18 (67%) had active cancer, 9/17 (53%) had been in intensive care and 7/17 (41%) had prior surgery.(More)
INTRODUCTION Reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract is the most commonly performed valve repair/replacement procedure in congenital cardiac surgery. There is an ongoing shortage of homografts, and existing bioprosthetic options suffer from substantial rates of structural valve deterioration over time. The Medtronic Freestyle valve is used(More)
The last two decades have seen a revolution in the treatment of aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD). Acceptable safety and durability outcomes have now been realized with endovascular treatments, which is increasingly finding a place in the treatment of AIOD. Evolution of stent technologies and endovascular techniques is seeing an expansion of AIOD lesions(More)
OBJECTIVES The Freestyle valve may be used for pulmonary valve replacement (PVR). Whether its stentless design and anticalcification treatment improve durability relative to alternative bioprostheses, however, is unknown and long-term data are lacking. METHODS We performed a retrospective review of all Freestyle PVRs performed by a single surgeon in two(More)
