OBJECTIVE Uterine leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is usually diagnosed after surgery for leiomyoma; thus tumor morcellation frequently occurs. We evaluated the impact of tumor morcellation during surgery on the prognosis of patients with apparently early uterine LMS. METHODS Outcomes were retrospectively compared between patients who underwent total abdominal(More)
Twenty-five chipmunk species occur in the world, of which only the Siberian chipmunk, Tamias sibiricus, inhabits Asia. To investigate mitochondrial cytochrome b sequence variations and population structure of the Siberian chipmunk in northeastern Asia, we examined mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences (1140 bp) from 3 countries. Analyses of 41 individuals(More)
BACKGROUND Supraclavicular (SC) and infraclavicular (IC) brachial plexus block (BPB) are commonly used for upper extremity surgery. Recent clinical studies have compared the effect of SC- and IC-BPB, but there have been controversies over spread of sensory blockade in each of the 4 peripheral nerve branches of brachial plexus. METHODS This study included(More)
Transurethral resection of the prostate is the gold standard in the operative management of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate using saline solution is a safe technique and reduces the risk of transurethral resection syndrome. This report discusses a rare complication of bipolar transurethral resection of the(More)

OBJECTIVE Laboratory hemostatic variables and parameters of rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) were evaluated for their ability to predict perioperative excessive blood loss (PEBL) after congenital cardiac surgery. DESIGN Retrospective and observational. SETTING Single, large university hospital. PARTICIPANTS The study comprised 119 children(More)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) after pediatric cardiac surgery is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Modifiable risk factors for postoperative AKI including perioperative anesthesia-related parameters were assessed. The authors conducted a single-center, retrospective cohort study of 220 patients (aged 10 days to 19 years) who underwent congenital(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effects of early goal-directed therapy (EGDT) on reducing mortality compared with conventional management of severe sepsis or septic shock. MATERIALS AND METHODS We included a systemic review, using the Medline and EMBASE. Seventeen randomized trials with 5765 patients comparing EGDT with usual care were included. RESULTS There(More)

BACKGROUND The plasma effect-site equilibrium rate constant (k(e0)) of propofol has been reported in various pharmacodynamic studies; however, it is not desirable to apply k(e0) for the link with pharmacokinetic models that were separately investigated. Thus, we titrated k(e0) for the pharmacokinetic model, which is known as the multiple covariates adjusted(More)
