BACKGROUND As a potent anticoagulant agent, rivaroxaban exposes a risk of bleeding. An effective way to reverse its effects is needed. Objectives were to study efficacy and safety of recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) and prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) to reverse the anticoagulant effect of an overdose of rivaroxaban in a rabbit model of(More)
Duplication of the internal jugular vein (IJV) is a rare malformation. Three intraoperative cases are reported. In our personal experience, the clinical incidence of the anomaly is approximately 4 per 1,000 unilateral neck dissections. The venous duplication is at a variable height, affecting the superior part of the IJV. The lateral branch of the accessory(More)
BACKGROUND Hydroxyethyl starches (HES) could differ with regard to the origin, and the influence on the coagulation of the raw material is unknown. This study compared the effects of a new potato-derived HES with a maize-derived HES and two crystalloid solutions. METHODS Whole blood from 10 healthy individuals was diluted by 20% and 40% using either(More)
The descriptive anatomy of the cricoarytenoid articulation provides an essential foundation for understanding disorders of mobility of the larynx, especially in carcinology. Thirteen formaline-preserved anatomic specimens of the adult larynx were studied and 4 pathologic larynges with loss of mobility due to a malignant tumor. The cricoid and arytenoid(More)
The recently discovered longitudinal displacement of the common carotid arterial wall (i.e., the motion along the same plane as the blood flow), may be associated with incident cardiovascular events and represents a novel and relevant clinical information. At present, there have only been a few studies that have been conducted to investigate this(More)
The aim of this study was to clinically investigate the association between the risk factors of early-stage atherosclerosis and the two-dimensional (2-D) movement of the artery wall. To meet this objective, a speckle tracking approach for the estimation of the 2-D trajectory of the vessel wall was proposed and applied to B-mode ultrasound (US) sequences of(More)
OBJECTIVES The study aimed to describe French off-label use of rFVIIa for intractable bleeding in major cardiovascular surgery. METHODS Retrospective observational analysis of data from 2005 to October 2007 (no formal guidelines were available) was employed. The collect request form was elaborated by a multidisciplinary committee. RESULTS Data on 109(More)
As a potent anticoagulant agent, fondaparinux exposes a risk of bleeding. An effective way to reverse its effects is needed. It was the objective to study efficacy and safety of prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) to reverse the anticoagulant effect of fondaparinux in a rabbit model of bleeding and thrombosis. In anaesthetised and ventilated rabbits, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the risks and benefits of a systematic reimplantation valve sparing procedure in the surgical treatment of type A aortic dissection (TAAD). PATIENTS AND METHODS From February December 2005, 15 consecutive patients (mean age 61+/-12 years) who underwent surgery for TAAD were analyzed prospectively. Eleven had a preoperative CT-scan(More)
