To Analyze The Risk Factors For CKD Patients

A study estimates the risk factors for new-onset chronic kidney disease (CKD) in patients who have received a liver transplant. A total of 190 patients who underwent liver transplantation between March 2001 and January 2015 were followed up and analyzed retrospectively.

Sex, age, primary disease, preoperative laboratory findings, surgical approach, blood loss during the surgery and transfusion volume, postoperative complications, and the average levels of calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) were analyzed. In total, 40 patients developed new-onset CKD after transplantation.

Anesthesia Given To Tracheal Bronchus Patients

The tracheal bronchus is a congenital anatomical variant of patients with accessory bronchus in the right upper lobe deriving directly from the supracarinal trachea. Pre-operative consultation with the anesthesiologist is important for patient safety and can avoid adverse effects induced by endotracheal intubation. The study involves complications in the tracheal bronchus.

Postoperative Chemoradiotherapy Offers No Extra Benefit in HNSCC

Although surgery and postoperative radiotherapy provided excellent freedom from locoregional relapse (FFLRR) in patients with high-risk cutaneous head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), there was no observed benefit with the addition of weekly carboplatin, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
