Perioperative thrombocytopenia.

Frederick W Lombard, Wanda M Popescu, Adriana D Oprea, Miklos D Kertai,

<h4>Purpose of review</h4>In this review, we discuss recent developments and trends in the perioperative management of thrombocytopenia.<h4>Recent findings</h4>Large contemporary data base studies show that preoperative thrombocytopenia is present in about 8% of asymptomatic patients, and is associated with increased risks for bleeding and 30-day mortality. Traditionally specific threshold platelet counts ... Read more >>

A Lower Tidal Volume Regimen during One-lung Ventilation for Lung Resection Surgery Is Not Associated with Reduced Postoperative Pulmonary Complications.

Douglas A Colquhoun, Aleda M Leis, Amy M Shanks, Michael R Mathis, Bhiken I Naik, Marcel E Durieux, Sachin Kheterpal, Nathan L Pace, Wanda M Popescu, Robert B Schonberger, Benjamin D Kozower, Dustin M Walters, Justin D Blasberg, Andrew C Chang, Michael F Aziz, Izumi Harukuni, Brandon H Tieu, Randal S Blank,

<h4>Background</h4>Protective ventilation may improve outcomes after major surgery. However, in the context of one-lung ventilation, such a strategy is incompletely defined. The authors hypothesized that a putative one-lung protective ventilation regimen would be independently associated with decreased odds of pulmonary complications after thoracic surgery.<h4>Methods</h4>The authors merged Society of Thoracic Surgeons ...

COVID 19: A Stressor for Both the Patient and the Anesthesiologist.

Terrence F Feldheim, Margot Denham, Wanda M Popescu,

The coronavirus disease 2019  pandemic has created not only  widespread  morbidity and mortality, but a myriad of social, financial, and psychological stressors. In this setting, the medical community has seen a substantial increase in the incidences  of cardiac morbidity and mortality, and, therefore,  anesthesiologists should expect a higher incidence in the perioperative period. In this E-Challenge, the authors present a ... Read more >>

P2Y12 Receptor Inhibitors in Acute Coronary Syndromes: What Is New on the Horizon?

Adriana Dana Oprea, Wanda M Popescu,

Dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor represents the cornerstone therapy for patients with acute coronary syndromes or undergoing percutaneous interventions, leading to a reduction of subsequent ischemic events. Variable response to clopidogrel has received close attention, and pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, and pharmacogenomic factors have been identified as ... Read more >>

Critical cardiac decompensation during laparoscopic surgery.

Wanda M Popescu, Albert C Perrino,

For patients with impaired cardiac function, the physiologic alterations incurred by the laparoscopic approach can produce marked, if not life-threatening, hemodynamic instability. We present such a case in a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy who hemodynamically decompensated during abdominal insufflation. Guided by intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography, the cause of the intraoperative ... Read more >>

Phantom aortic valve pressure gradient: discrepancies between cardiac catheterization and Doppler echocardiography.

Wanda M Popescu, Edward Prokop, John A Elefteriades, Kevin Kett, Paul G Barash,

We present a case of a patient scheduled for mitral valve replacement and possible aortic valve replacement. On Doppler examination, her peak transaortic pressure gradient measured on three separate occasions (pre-, intra-, and postoperatively) was approximately 60 mm Hg. In contrast, the peak-to-peak pressure gradient (cardiac catheterization) was 11 mm ... Read more >>

Increased leukocyte-platelet adhesion in patients with graft occlusion after peripheral vascular surgery.

Claire J Esposito, Wanda M Popescu, Henry M Rinder, Jeffrey J Schwartz, Brian R Smith, Christine S Rinder,

Graft occlusion following peripheral vascular surgery is attributable to some combination of acute thrombosis, and progression of atherosclerosis: interactions between leukocytes and activated platelets may play a role in both of these processes. This investigation measured perioperative leukocyte-platelet conjugate formation, and leukocyte and platelet activation in 46 patients undergoing surgery ... Read more >>
