We performed transoesophageal echocardiography on 20 patients with femoral neck fractures randomly treated with an uncemented Austin-Moore or cemented Hastings hemiarthroplasty. Cemented arthroplasty caused greater and more prolonged embolic cascades than did uncemented arthroplasty. Some emboli were more than 3 cm in length. In some patients the cascades were associated with pulmonary hypertension, diminished oxygen tension and saturation, and the presence of fat and marrow in aspirates from… Expand
Embolic events during total hip arthroplasty: an echocardiographic study.
TLDR
The results indicate that embolic events may occur during THA whether or not cement is used, and make several recommendations for technique modifications during insertion of both femoral and acetabular components in THA. Expand
Paradoxical cerebral arterial embolization of cement during intraoperative vertebroplasty: case report.
TLDR
Paradoxical cerebral embolism of cement occurred in a 78-year-old woman after cement-assisted transpedicular spinal fixation surgery, which occurred because of failure to recognize venous migration of cement during the procedure and the injection of multiple levels in one setting. Expand
Medullary lavage reduces embolic phenomena and cardiopulmonary changes during cemented hemiarthroplasty.
TLDR
There was a statistically significant reduction in both the duration of the response and the number of large emboli in patients who had had thorough lavage as compared with the control group with minimal lavage. Expand
Uncemented hemiarthroplasty for fractured neck of femur: a consecutive series with a single prosthesis
TLDR
There were no intraoperative deaths or periprosthetic fractures as a result of stem insertion, demonstrating that it can be used safely when an uncemented option is preferred. Expand
Pulmonary Embolism in Cemented Total Hip Arthroplasty
TLDR
The use of pulsatile jet-lavage can be regarded as an obligatory preparatory procedure before cement application, and fat and bone marrow are removed as potential embolic sources and the cement-bone interface is enhanced. Expand
Transesophageal echocardiography and clinical features of fat embolism during cemented total hip arthroplasty
TLDR
This study was able to show a clearly reduced risk of pulmonary emboli using the bone vacuum cementing technique, and the presence of pre-existing disease greatly magnified the clinical relevance of fat embolism. Expand
Deep Vein Thrombosis after Cement Intravasation during Hip Hemiarthroplasty
TLDR
A 70-year-old woman who underwent hip hemiarthroplasty for a displaced left femoral neck fracture demonstrates radio-opacity consistent with local cement intravasation, leading to the development of deep vein thrombosis just distal to the site of cement occlusion. Expand
Effectiveness of the ROBODOC system in preventing intraoperative pulmonary embolism
TLDR
It is suggested that the ROBODOC femoral milling system may reduce the risk of clinically significant pulmonary embolism during cementless THA. Expand
Percutaneous vertebroplasty complications
TLDR
Complications arising from vertebroplasty can be classified as mild, which may include a temporary increase in pain and transient hypotension; moderate, including infection and extravasation of cement into the foraminal, epidural or dural space; and severe such as cement leakage in the paravertebral veins, leading to pulmonary embolism, cardiac perforation, cerebralembolism or even death.

The detection of fat embolism by transoesophageal echocardiography during reamed intramedullary nailing. A study of 24 patients with femoral and tibial fractures.
TLDR
Transoesophageal echocardiography on 24 patients during reamed intramedullary nailing of 17 tibial and seven femoral fractures found minimal evidence of emboli passing through the heart, but in six copious showers of small and multiple large emboli were observed. Expand
Hypotension during cemented arthroplasty. Relationship to cardiac output and fat embolism.
TLDR
The relatively mild hypotension after lavage was secondary to transient vasodilation, which may accentuate the hypotension caused by the decreased cardiac output due to a large embolicFat embolism, and hence the decrease in cardiac output. Expand
Brief report: fulminating fat embolism syndrome caused by paradoxical embolism through a patent foramen ovale.
TLDR
A patient undergoing treatment of a femoral fracture in whom massive fat embolism was demonstrated by transesophageal echocardiography is described, precipitating paradoxical fat emblism across a patent foramen ovale, with the subsequent development of the Fat Embolism syndrome. Expand

TLDR
Adequate intramedullary femoral canal venting can significantly reduce the amount or dosage of fat embolism and thereby reduce and prevent primary or superimposing secondary injury of the capillary-alveolar gas exchange area within the lungs. Expand

A 61-year-old woman presented with a left mammary tumour, which she had noticed two weeks previously, and was clinically confined to the breast, with no evidence of metastases, and there wasno evidence of concurrent disease. Expand
Pulmonary marrow embolism: A dog model simulating dual component cemented arthroplasty
TLDR
Cardiopulmonary collapse has been associated with Guepar dual component arthroplasties clinically and patients are at increased risk and should be monitored continuously and prophylactic measures include meticulous lavage of the intramedullary cavity, increased FiO2, and maintenance of intravascular volume and cardiac output.

For many years now I have been treating soft anogenital warts with 3% podophyllin in propylene glycol with the main advantages being that the treatment can be carried out daily (with an orange stick) by the patient himself. Expand
Prostanoid production and pulmonary hypertension after fat embolism are not modified by methylprednisolone
TLDR
It is concluded that acute fat and marrow embolism after BCA is associated with increased levels of TxB2 and 6-keto PGFlα and neither the acute haemodynamic changes nor the prostanoid response are inhibited by MPSS. Expand
Cardiovascular Effects of Methylmethacrylate Cement
TLDR
Precautionary measures can be taken and groups of patients who are especially at risk can be identified, thus reducing the hazards of total hip replacement. Expand

TLDR
The ability of the patient to tolerate an increase in pulmonary shunt should be assessed when the femoral component is to be cemented during total hip replacement. Expand
