PURPOSE Men with localized prostate cancer currently face a number of treatment options that treat the entire prostate. These can cause significant sexual and urinary side effects. Focal therapy offers a novel strategy that targets the cancer rather than the prostate in an attempt to preserve tissue and function. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective,… (More)
OBJECTIVE Cyanotic congenital heart diseases (CCHD) with secondary polycythemia and hyperviscosity state are associated with a reduction in blood flow, stagnation of blood, and thrombosis. Sufficient hemodilution in cyanotic children results in higher blood flow and significant reductions in perioperative blood loss. The aim of this study was to investigate… (More)
Acute pancreatitis is a potentially life threatening disease. The spectrum of severity of the illness ranges from mild self-limiting disease to a highly fatal severe necrotizing pancreatitis. Despite intensive research and improved patient care, overall mortality still remains high, reaching up to 30-40% in cases with infected pancreatic necrosis. Although… (More)
Abernethy syndrome (congenital extrahepatic portosystemic shunt (CEPS II)) as an etiology of hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) is uncommon. The severe hypoxemia and its consequences become incapacitating for the patient. Early shunt closure resolves hypoxemia and clinical symptomatology and prevents irreversible changes in pulmonary vasculature.
The atypical antipsychotic olanzapine is increasingly being used for various psychiatric conditions. There are few reports of olanzapine overdose in adolescent population. We report a case of 16-year-old adolescent who ingested 750 mg olanzapine, the highest reported nonlethal dose of olanzapine in adolescents. He presented with tachycardia, hypotension,… (More)
Severe persistent hypertension is seen infrequently in newborns and infants, but we came across two infants who developed severe paradoxical hypertension after successful coarctation repair. Treatment of systemic hypertension following repair of coarctation of the aorta is always challenging particularly in infants. Dexmedetomidine was used successfully as… (More)
BACKGROUND Nosocomial infections (NIs) in the postoperative period not only increase morbidity and mortality, but also impose a significant economic burden on the health care infrastructure. This retrospective study was undertaken to (a) evaluate the incidence, characteristics, risk factors and outcomes of NIs and (b) identify common microorganisms… (More)
An 18-year-old boy with congenital erythropoietic porphyria and calcific constrictive pericarditis underwent total pericardiectomy. The cause of pericardial calcification could be deposition of porphyrins in the pericardium. Surgical importance of this rare condition is highlighted.
BACKGROUND The number of grown ups with congenital heart diseases (GUCHs) is steadily increasing. AIMS To analyze factors predicting early cardiac morbidity following cardiac surgery in GUCH at a tertiary care center. SETTING AND DESIGN Retrospective study at a multispeciality tertiary referral center. METHODS Between January 2004 and December 2014,… (More)
