Age, BMI, ASA score, PADUA score, operative time, warm ischemia
time, complication rates, and length of hospital stay were similar among the groups (Table 1), whereas EBL was significantly lower in the Floseal Group (Tables 2 and 3).
Limited warm ischemia
during elective partial nephrectomy has only a marginal impact on renal functional outcomes.
(1) DCD simvastatin group (DCD-Sim group): simvastatin pretreatment, DCD livers exposed to 30 min of in situ warm ischemia
followed by 24 h cold storage (UW solution) and subsequent 1 h ex vivo warm reperfusion.
Exploration of vessels still remains a good option in "B" Class hospital, not having investigating facility, and travelling to "A" Class hospital is such that it increases warm ischemia
Further studies are needed to determine the effect of surgical manipulation on gene expression profiling, accounting for the confounding factors of warm ischemia
; the allowable duration of delayed specimen processing; the optimal type, duration, and temperature of preservation and fixation; and the optimal storage duration of FFPE specimens in a fit-for-purpose approach.
Previous single surgeon studies have analyzed RPN versus LPN [11, 15-19] with the consensus being that RPN offers a shorter learning curve to minimally invasive PN and comparable warm ischemia
time, EBL, and length of stay.
Kanofsky et al., "Effect of warm ischemia
time during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy on early postoperative glomerular filtration rate," Journal of Urology, vol.
After 60 minutes of warm ischemia
, the vessels were unclamped and followed by 72 hours of reperfusion, while the right kidney was removed.
The mean warm ischemia
time was 18.6 min in low complexity tumors and 29.8 min in high complexity tumors (p=0.01).
"Absolute indications" exist for lower-limb amputation, as reported by Lange et al.: warm ischemia
time >6 hours, disruption of the tibial nerve in an adult, and threat to life in the attempt .
The average time patients spent on warm ischemia
increased from 28 minutes in the first 100 cases to 33 minutes in the last 100 cases.
Five months postoperatively, the transplanted lung was functioning well, confirming that the lungs can tolerate 1 hour of warm ischemia
after circulatory arrest, and that topical cooling preserves them in an "excellent" state for 12 to 24 hours, said Stig Steen, MD and colleagues in the March 17th issue of the Lancet.
