Perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis in non-infected orthopedic surgery is evident, in contrast to prophylaxis during surgery for infection. Epidemiological data are lacking for this particular situat...
The analgesic efficacy of paravertebral block for percutaneous nephrolithotomy remains controversial. We conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the analgesic efficacy of paravertebra...
Although clinical guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis across a wide array of surgical procedures have been proposed by multidisciplinary groups of physicians and pharmacists, clinicians often deviat...
To analyse the changes in renal function and serum electrolytes in the early post-operative period of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).
Antibiotic prophylaxis is usually adopted to prevent urinary tract infection (UTI) after nephrostomy catheter placement and replacement. This prophylaxis has been little studied in cancer patients, an...
To evaluate whether 5 days of levofloxacin before percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in reducing upper urinary tract infection and urosepsis after PCNL.
This prospective, randomized study is aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of paravertebral block compared to epidural anesthesia for percutaneous nephrolithotomy. The investigators sup...
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a surgical procedure that is standard of care for the removal of large kidney stones. PCNL involves removal of the stone(s) from the kidney through a...
The EUA Urolithiasis Guidelines Panel meta-analysis suggest that mPNL is at least as efficacious and safe as sPNL for the removal of renal calculi. However, the quality of the evidence was...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether continuous intravenous ketorolac infusion reduces pain in patients who are having percutaneous nephrolithotomy for kidney stone disease.
Surgical removal of large KIDNEY CALCULI by means of a percutaneous nephroscope which is passed into the KIDNEY PELVIS through a track created in the patient's back.
The time periods immediately before, during and following a surgical operation.
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.
Use of antibiotics before, during, or after a diagnostic, therapeutic, or surgical procedure to prevent infectious complications.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
