Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Patient care procedures performed during the operation that are ancillary to the actual surgery. It includes monitoring, fluid therapy, medication, transfusion, anesthesia, radiography, and laboratory tests.
Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.
Technetium Tc 99m Pentetate
A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.
Integration of optical imaging technologies can further strengthen the field of radioguided surgery. Rather than using two separate chemical entities to achieve this extension, hybrid imaging agents c...
Injury to the facial skeleton may result not only in aesthetic but also functional deficits. Computer-assisted surgery promises predictable reconstructive results. In clinical routine the authors use...
BACKGROUND: As low-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has very limited significance for intraoperative control of total tumor removal (TTR), we examined the influence of 1.5-T MRI, incorporating h...
PURPOSE: Real-time intraoperative near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging is a promising technique for lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymph node (SLN) detection. The purpose of this technical feasib...
Off-pump coronary arterial bypass grafting and new surgical apparatus and techniques have decreased the mortality rate associated with this procedure to approximately 1.5%. If we could detect problems...
The investigators aim to investigate the effects of prewarming of patients undergoing elective orthopedic surgery on intraoperative temperature control and blood loss and postoperative pat...
Some recent studies have shown that intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) can aid the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) identification during thyroid surgery. However, the role of IONM in re...
Purpose: - Improvement of extent of resection by the use of intraoperatively acquired image data sets to navigate. - Better define the role of different intra-operative...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a new surgical technique (radioguided seed localization) for localizing nonpalpable breast tumours is better than the standard technique (...
Cognitive and neurological dysfunction after coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) is common and multi-factorial in origin. Several previous studies have shown that intraoperative aprotini...
