Masimo announced the findings of an abstract presented at Euroanaesthesia 2018 in which researchers compared Masimo Patient State Index, or PSi, a processed EEG parameter provided by SedLine brain function monitoring, to Medtronic Bispectral Index, or BIS, in monitoring the depth of anesthesia of two groups of patients: healthy volunteers undergoing hepatotomy
for liver donation and cirrhotic patients undergoing liver resection.
The patient was consented for open cholecystectomy due to her unusual anatomy and likely need for hepatotomy to access the gallbladder.
Multiple strategies are described and now used for parenchymal liver transection in hepatectomies, and while no method has been found to be superior, we elected to use a new approach for our hepatotomy in order to access the intrahepatic location of the gallbladder .
The recent non-operative management of liver traumas include extensive hepatorraphy, hepatotomy
, resectional debridement, lobectomy, segmentectomy and liver transplantation or have co-existing organ injuries.
