It is a large-headed metal-on-metal device that(More)
Two healthy males relaxing supine on a ballistobed were mechanically ventilated at positive end-expiratory pressures (PEEP) from 0 to 19 cmH2O. Pressures at the airway opening, middle esophagus, and stomach were monitored, together with tidal volume (VT) and ballistobed displacement. The effective elastance (i.e., sum of active and passive components) of(More)
The age of patients undergoing primary Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) remains fairly constant despite an increasingly elderly population, possibly owing to concern over postoperative complications. This study evaluated 90-day outcomes in patients over 80, undergoing uncemented collared primary THA for osteoarthritis in a high volume unit. Data were recorded(More)
INTRODUCTION Angiosarcoma of the spleen is a rare malignancy of vascular origin with a high rate of metastasis and poor prognosis. We report one such rare case of spontaneous splenic rupture, along with a review of current literature.
