Jul 9th, 2014 - Ninety percent of cases of acute calculous cholecystitis are of mild (grade I) or moderate (grade II) severity. Although the preoperative and intraoperative antibiotic management of acute calculous cholecystitis has been standardized, few data exist on the utility of postoperative antibiotic treatment. To determine the effect of postoperative amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid on infection rates ...

American Journal of Rhinology & Allergy; Patro SK, Verma RK et. al.

Jul 14th, 2015 - Criterion standard treatment of allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) is primary surgery followed by adjuvant therapy. Even after good surgery, recurrence rates vary from 10 to 79%. Antifungals, e.g., itraconazole, and steroids have shown varying success rates in delaying recurrences given after surgery. Itraconazole decreases the need for steroids given as a primary treatment in allergic bronchopulm...

Surgery Siddiqi HK, Yang HY et. al.

Nov 19th, 2012 - Calcium channel blockade with nicardipine (NC) is an alternative to phenoxybenzamine (PB) preparation for resection of a pheochromocytoma. Intraoperative magnesium sulfate infusion (+MgSO(4)) is often used for its cardiovascular stabilizing properties. We hypothesized that preparation with NC would be similar clinically to PB for resection of a pheochromocytoma, and MgSO(4) infusion would not a...
