Mid-Term Efficacy of Subxiphoid Versus Transpleural Pericardial Window for Pericardial Effusion.

Sujana Balla, Rodrigo Zea-Vera, Rachel A Kaplan, Todd K Rosengart, Matthew J Wall, Ravi K Ghanta,

<h4>Background</h4>The optimal surgical technique for drainage of pericardial effusions is frequently debated. Transpleural drainage via thoracotomy or thoracoscopy is hypothesized to provide more durable freedom from recurrent pericardial effusion than a subxiphoid pericardial window. We sought to compare operative outcomes and mid-term freedom from recurrent effusion between both approaches in ... Read more >>

Pericardial tamponade resulting in hemodynamic compromise requiring either pericardiocentesis [Vandyke 1983] or subxiphoid pericardial window has been reported in literature [Armstrong 1984]. There are no large case series, only scattered case reports. Cardiac tamponade is known to affect the diastolic function of the heart but rare reports have documented systolic impairment of the left and right ventricle in ... Read more >>

Use of a trauma service clinical pathway to improve patient outcomes for retained traumatic hemothorax.

C Anne Morrison, Timothy C Lee, Matthew J Wall, Matthew M Carrick,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Early evacuation of retained hemothorax (RHTX) has been shown to improve clinical outcomes. In 2006, our trauma surgery service instituted a clinical pathway for management of RHTX that was designed to decrease time to operation and improve patient outcomes. We report our experience with early evacuation of posttraumatic RHTX after ... Read more >>

Chlorhexidine-Alcohol versus Povidone-Iodine for Surgical-Site Antisepsis.

Rabih O Darouiche, Matthew J Wall, Kamal M F Itani, Mary F Otterson, Alexandra L Webb, Matthew M Carrick, Harold J Miller, Samir S Awad, Cynthia T Crosby, Michael C Mosier, Atef Alsharif, David H Berger,

<h4>Background</h4>Since the patient's skin is a major source of pathogens that cause surgical-site infection, optimization of preoperative skin antisepsis may decrease postoperative infections. We hypothesized that preoperative skin cleansing with chlorhexidine-alcohol is more protective against infection than is povidone-iodine.<h4>Methods</h4>We randomly assigned adults undergoing clean-contaminated surgery in six hospitals to preoperative ...
