There were no aesthetically or medically serious problems needing secondary rhinoplasty such as hematoma formation, warping of the graft, graft extrusion, infection, and rejection of the graft.
Discussion: Augmentation rhinoplasty using a folded pure dermal graft has many advantages and is a very useful surgical option in patients who have an aversion to the use of artificial implants, who want to change the postoperative appearance of their nose due to insertion of an artificial implant into a more natural appearance, and when there is too much thinning of the skin due to repeated insertion of silicone implants.”
“As major prescribers of oral anticoagulants,
cardiologists must be familiar with strategies compound screening assay to manage bleeding, the principal complication associated with all anticoagulants, and to reverse anticoagulant effects in acute-care settings. The purpose of this manuscript is to review currently available information regarding dabigatran and rivaroxaban, the 2 novel oral anticoagulants approved to date in the United States. Further, we suggest reasonable interventions for the clinician faced with a patient who suffers a major bleeding event while receiving one of these agents. Data sources were peer-reviewed publications, US Food and Drug Administration documents
AZD8931 mouse in the public domain, and approved US prescribing information for dabigatran (Pradaxa) and rivaroxaban (Xarelto). Strategies for management of bleeding and reversal of anticoagulant effects from warfarin include vitamin K, fresh frozen plasma, and prothrombin complex concentrates. For rivaroxaban and dabigatran, appropriate therapies include support and observation, which are likely to be effective for the majority of patients because of the short half-lives of these agents. In severe life-threatening hemorrhage, clotting-factor substitutes
may be appropriate in certain situations. Validated protocols specific to each agent remain to be developed. Clin.
