Middle ear gentamicinsoaked pledgets
in the treatment of Meniere's disease.
Two-millimeter cotton pledgets
soaked in 70% perchloric acid were kept in contact with the bone for 2 hours (Figure 1); after each application, the mandibles were washed for 1 min under tap water, according to the methodology used in previous studies.
Small tears can be repaired primarily by simple suture with or without the use of pledgets
under direct compression or with application of a vascular clamp thus avoiding the need for potential cardiopulmonary bypass.
Non-absorbable Teflon felt is intended for use in cardiac surgery, most commonly as a patch where there is a tissue defect but also as a buttress for sutures, using small pledgets
for vessel repair.
The subsequent TCH investigation into the two cases focused on the following three single-use, disposable items used in the treatment of both patients: 1) sterile syringes prefilled with sterile saline solution, 2) sterile applicators packaged with a 2% chlorhexidine gluconate/70% alcohol solution for skin preparation, and 3) pledgets
packaged with 70% isopropyl alcohol (alcohol prep pads [APPs]).
As a result, a softer, more pliable pledget
is formed that not only increases user comfort during use, but also affords a user with comparable and/or increased leakage protection over conventional tampons or tampon pledgets
In the first place then, take care that you do not open your mouth; but holding your breath, rush at the intruder and seize his cue in your left hand, while with the thumb and index finger of the right, you lay hold of his nose just above the alae with a firm grip; a bolus will drop out of each nostril, with which you are to plug your own nasal passage (be not fastidious) and you may then commence breathing (your mouth still closed)--for these medicated pledgets
possess the property of decomposing the somnolent gas.
The perforation was repaired with direct suture closure using Teflon pledgets
1% of total urine was collected and filtered through two-double pledgets
into plastic bottles containing a few ml of 10% hydrochloric acid solution to maintain pH below 3.
Fluoroscopy-guided UAE consists of the placement of bilateral UA balloon catheters through femoral sheaths, followed by embolization with Gelfoam pledgets
to maintain or achieve hemostasis.
The risk lies in the procedural type and technique and may often be due to exposure to suspension sutures, polypropylene pledgets
, or mesh--all of which may serve as a nidus for crystallization.
tarsalis (infected with WEEV by feeding on viremic chickens or heparinized viremic chicken blood presented by hanging blood droplets, pledgets
, or solutions through a biomembrane) did not show significant differences in infection rates or titers in infected female mosquitoes (F.
