Background Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a common disease that may contribute to morbidity and mortality among trauma patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). This study evaluated the associations between trauma factors and the development of VAP in ventilated patients with multiple rib fractures. Methods We retrospectively and consecutively(More)
We report a rare case of dyspnea caused by a cardiac tumor in a 53-year-old woman. The patient had undergone a cardiac tumor (inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, 6.2 × 4.2 × 3.3 cm) resection at our institute 13 months earlier. We performed preoperative evaluations which revealed a cardiac tumor originating from the posterior wall of the left atrium.(More)

PURPOSE Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (RAAA) is a rare, extremely dangerous condition. Previous studies have published preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative data; however, there are not enough studies on the preoperative factors alone. Here we studied the preoperative predictors of 30-day mortality in patients with RAAA. MATERIALS AND(More)
Method We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 398 consecutive patients who underwent isolated elective OPCAB with intention-to-treat base from July 2005 to March 2015. 365 patients underwent successful OPCAB, whereas 24 patients were converted to EBS-CAB due to hemodynamic instability. The early and late clinical outcomes were analyzed and then(More)
