Alpha Blockers More Effective for Large Kidney Stones

For the two-thirds of kidney stone patients who need more than just extra hydration to pass their stones, physicians are eager to find non-surgical ways to help. Now, a new review of the medical literature suggests alpha blockers may be useful in some cases.

Study of Thousands of Operations Finds Overlapping Surgeries Are Safe for Mayo Clinic Patients

ROCHESTER, Minn.­ — A common way of scheduling surgeries to expand patient access to care and improve hospital efficiency, known as “overlapping surgeries,” is as safe and provides the same outcomes for patients as non-overlapping surgeries, a Mayo Clinic study has found. Spacing operations so a surgeon has two patients in operating rooms at the same time is a common practice in surgery at Mayo and other leading medical institutions. It gives patients greater access to qualified surgeons, allows more efficient use of operating rooms, and avoids unnecessary downtime for surgeons. A Mayo Clinic study compared the outcomes of thousands of such overlapping surgeries with non-overlapping operations at its Rochester campus and found no difference in the rates of postoperative complications or deaths within a month after surgery between the two groups. The findings are published in the Annals of Surgery.

UC San Diego Health Performs Region’s First Heart-Liver Transplant

On November 4, 2016, surgeons at UC San Diego Health performed the region’s first combined heart-liver transplant (CHLT). During the 10-hour surgery, 54-year old Frank “Sonny” Taitano received a healthy heart and liver. This is the first successful heart-liver transplant for San Diego; less than 10 of these surgeries are performed each year in the U.S.

Fluid Flow Model Evaluates Clotting Risk in New Stent Graft Design

Dr.PatKellyResearchteam03-26-2015_cropped.jpg

Whether patients with mechanical heart valves or left ventricular assist devices must take blood thinners depends on how effectively blood flows through these implantable devices. Researchers have modeled the flow of blood through these devices to estimate clotting risk, but this type of work has not been done on stent grafts—until now. The results showed that shear accumulation in a new endovascular stent graft design was comparable to that of an idealized aorta.

Patients Should Stop Using E-Cigarettes Before Plastic Surgery, Experts Conclude

Cigarette smokers are at increased risk of complications after plastic surgery. Could e-cigarette users face a similar risk? Evidence and recommendations related to e-cigarette use by plastic surgery patients are discussed in a special topic paper in the December issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
