Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is a multimodal approach to perioperative care that combines a range of interventions to enable early mobilization and feeding after surgery. We investigated the feasibility, clinical effectiveness, and cost savings of an ERAS program at a major U. S. teaching hospital.

A prospective comparison of a noninvasive cardiac output monitor versus esophageal Doppler monitor for goal-directed fluid therapy in colorectal surgery patients.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) is associated with improved outcomes after surgery. The esophageal Doppler monitor (EDM) is widely used, but has several limitations. The NICOM, a completely noninvasive cardiac output monitor (Cheetah Medical), may be appropriate for guiding GDFT. No prospective studies have compared the NICOM and the EDM. We hypothesized that the NICOM is not significantly different from the EDM for monitoring during GDFT.

Distant Harrington rod migration 35 years after implantation.
J Clin Neurosci
PUBLISHED: 05-07-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Harrington rods have been successfully implanted in thousands of patients for the correction of scoliotic deformity since the 1950s. An exceedingly rare complication of Harrington rod placement is loosening with resultant migration. The authors present a 50-year-old woman who had a single Harrington rod placed when she was 15 years old. Thirty-five years later, she presented with acute sensory changes in her lower extremities. Imaging revealed rod failure and migration of the hardware distally, resulting in penetration of the wall of the rectum. Due to the unique anatomical position of the migrated hardware, sigmoidoscopy was used to directly visualize and remove the rod. The patient ultimately made a full recovery. Rod migration is an exceedingly rare complication that has been described only a few times since the introduction of Harrington rods over 60 years ago. The case herein is particularly unique given the extensive period of time that passed before migration (35 years) and the use of sigmoidoscopy for hardware removal.

Detection of intestinal dysplasia using angle-resolved low coherence interferometry.
J Biomed Opt
PUBLISHED: 10-28-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Angle-resolved low coherence interferometry (a/LCI) is an optical biopsy technique that allows for depth-resolved, label-free measurement of the average size and optical density of cell nuclei in epithelial tissue to assess the tissue health. a/LCI has previously been used clinically to identify the presence of dysplasia in Barretts Esophagus patients undergoing routine surveillance. We present the results of a pilot, ex vivo study of tissues from 27 patients undergoing partial colonic resection surgery, conducted to evaluate the ability of a/LCI to identify dysplasia. Performance was determined by comparing the nuclear morphology measurements with pathological assessment of co-located physical biopsies. A statistically significant correlation between increased average nuclear size, reduced nuclear density, and the presence of dysplasia was noted at the basal layer of the epithelium, at a depth of 200 to 300 ?m beneath the tissue surface. Using a decision line determined from a receiver operating characteristic, a/LCI was able to separate dysplastic from healthy tissues with a sensitivity of 92.9% (13/14), a specificity of 83.6% (56/67), and an overall accuracy of 85.2% (69/81). The study illustrates the extension of the a/LCI technique to the detection of intestinal dysplasia, and demonstrates the need for future in vivo studies.

Diagnosis and management of ileocolic pseudoaneurysms.
Perspect Vasc Surg Endovasc Ther
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Ileocolic pseudoaneurysmal disease is a rare splanchnic aneurysm that affects 3 out of 100 000 patients, and only 7 cases have been described in the past 40 years in patients without preexisting connective tissue disorders. Abdominal pain is the most common presenting symptom and nearly 30% of patients present with hemorrhage. Ileocolic pseudoaneurysms are diagnosed by contrasted computed tomography scans and verified by arteriography. We present a case report and review of the literature in which a patient was initially managed by coil embolization, followed by laparotomy and suture ligation due to pseudoaneurysm rupture.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
