Bedside percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy has become one of the most commonly used interventions in ICU medicine. Different techniques have been developed, but guidance of percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy by video bronchoscope has been suggested to be clinically reasonable for direct visualization. The current Step-by-Step tutorial gives a detailed instruction of the procedure with visualization of every single step offering tips and pitfalls of the procedure.

Percutaneous dilatational tracheotomy (PDT) has become increasingly popular and gained widespread acceptance. The modern PDT procedure has also evolved to whereby it can be safely performed by surgeon...
Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is one of the most common bedside surgical procedures performed in critically ill adults, on intensive care units (ICUs), who require long-term ventilation...
Tracheostomy is a commonly performed surgical procedure in intensive care units (ICUs). Over the past three decades, there has been a substantial body of evidence to suggest percutaneous tracheostomy ...
Percutaneous dilatation tracheostomy (PDT) has several advantages over traditional surgical tracheostomy. However, it is still performed using bronchoscopy guidance.
We sought to provide a practical educational tool for the utilization of intracardiac echography (ICE) in the left atrium for the percutaneous closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA).
The aim of this study is to compare Ultra-perc single stage dilator technique with Ciaglia Blue Dolphin ballon dilatation technique for intubated unweanable ICU patients with respect to pr...
This is a phase III clinical trial comparing early tracheostomy (day 4) versus prolonged endotracheal intubation in ICU patients needing prolonged ventilatory support after cardiovascular ...
Use of the ultrasound before, during and after percutaneous tracheostomy allows us great advantages; anatomy of the pre and paratracheal region and displaying potential aberrant vessels, a...
Trial is a randomized study to compare between ultrasound guided percutaneous tracheostomy and bronchoscopy guided percutaneous tracheostomy.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia and late complications by comparing two different cannulas and two different percutaneous trach...
3'-Phosphoadenosine-5'-phosphosulfate. Key intermediate in the formation by living cells of sulfate esters of phenols, alcohols, steroids, sulfated polysaccharides, and simple esters, such as choline sulfate. It is formed from sulfate ion and ATP in a two-step process. This compound also is an important step in the process of sulfur fixation in plants and microorganisms.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Gram-negative bacterial secretion systems which translocate effectors in a single step across the inner and outer membranes. The one-step secretion is carried out by a channel that passes from the CYTOPLASM, through the inner membrane, PERIPLASMIC SPACE, and outer membrane, to the EXTRACELLULAR SPACE. The specificity of type I secretions systems are determined by the specificity of the three subcomponents forming the channel - an ATP transporter (ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS); a membrane fusion protein (MEMBRANE FUSION PROTEINS); and an outer membrane protein (BACTERIAL OUTER MEMBRANE PROTEINS.)
