723. Airway Changes in Patients Undergoing Elective Surgical Procedures in the Prone and Trendelenburg Positions

classes in patients undergoing lumbar spine surgery in the prone position. Furthermore, although laparoscopic surgery has been shown to increase lung and chest wall mechanical impedance, which leads to increases in abdominal and intrathoracic pressure, as well as an increase in central venous pressure with subsequent increases in intraocular pressure, no studies have been performed to specifically track resultant airway changes. Lastly, to investigators' knowledge no studies have investigated (...)

727. IINB vs. QLB for Elective Open Inguinal Herniorrhaphy

following open herniorrhaphy. Additionally, because local anesthetic injected during a QLB has the potential to spread cranially into the thoracic paravertebral space following its lumbar deposition it could lead to alleviation of both somatic and visceral pain.3 This might therefore improve the quality and or duration of analgesia as compared to the IINB. To the best of the author's knowledge there has been no investigation comparing the efficacy, with regards to post-operative pain management, between (...) in the study and do not meet exclusion criteria will be randomized to either receiving an IINB or a QLB for post-operative analgesia.

, spine, etc.) and non-aerated lung tissues - which is a major limitation for the clinical use of information derived from EIT-imaging. Moreover, current EIT-reconstruction algorithms are based on the consideration of a complete circular thoracic shape and do not take into account the body contours and lung borders. The investigators are convinced that EIT-derived dynamic bedside lung imaging can be advanced by morphing computed tomography (CT) scans of the respective thoracic levels with concomitant (...) EIT images - thus enhancing EIT-image information with CT-data. Integrating the anatomy of thoracic shape and lung borders provided by high-spatial resolution multi detector CT-scans (MDCT) with high-temporal resolution EIT has the potential to improve image quality considerably. This data can be used to compute mean EIT-reconstruction models that further offer the possibility to develop novel and clinically meaningful EIT parameters. Therefore, the investigators hypothesize that by integration

731. Demographical aspects in cervical vertebral bodies' size and shape (c3-c7): a skeletal study. (Abstract)

Demographical aspects in cervical vertebral bodies' size and shape (c3-c7): a skeletal study. This cross-sectional study was conducted on the skeletal remains of individuals of known sex, age, and ethnic origin. The vertebral bodies of levels C3-C7 were measured and analyzed. Whereas many studies were performed on the size and shape of the vertebral bodies in the thoracic and lumbar spines, few have focused on the cervical vertebral bodies. Thus, there is insufficient data in the literature (...) on the anatomy of the cervical spine, especially based on large study populations.To establish a large database on cervical vertebral bodies' size and shape and analyze their association with demographic parameters.The population studied was composed of 277 individuals, adult males and females of African American (AA) and European American (EA) origin. The skeletal remains are housed at the Hamman-Todd Osteological collection (Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland, OH).A 3-D digitizer was used

and spine and tubular latex balloons to simulate the esophagus and lungs to make the basic model. This device was inserted into the thoracic cavity of a rubber dummy simulating a 3kg newborn with a work area volume of 50ml. The model was designed taking into account the experience of doing this procedure in neonates. The cost of the materials used was 50 US$. Regular video endoscopic equipment and 3mm instruments were used. Thirty-nine international faculty or pediatric surgeons attending hands (...) on courses with different levels of training in minimal invasive surgery (MIS) repair of EA/TEF performed the procedure in the model. We compared the performance of the practitioners with their experience in thoracoscopic repair of EA. A Likert-type scale was used to evaluate results. Previous experience in MIS, anatomical appearance of the model, surgical anatomy compared to a real patient, and utility as a training method were analyzed. We also used a checklist to assess performance. We evaluated

733. A neglected point in surgical treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: Variations in the number of vertebrae. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A neglected point in surgical treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: Variations in the number of vertebrae. Inaccurate identification of vertebral levels is the main cause of wrong-site spine surgery which is performed by nearly half of the spine surgeons. Unusual anatomy and failure to verify the surgical level on radiographs have been commonly reported. We aimed at investigating the variations in vertebral number in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients and thus to raise (...) awareness of the possibility for wrong-level spinal surgery and to make a comparison with normal adolescents. A cohort of 657 AIS patients and 248 normal adolescents, presented to our center from June 2008 to February 2013, who met the inclusion criteria, were recruited. Radiographs were reviewed to identify the number of thoracic or lumbar vertebrae and the presence of a lumbosacral transitional vertebra. In the AIS group, 70 (10.6%) patients had variations in the number of thoracic and/or lumbar

734. Termination of Pregnancy for Fetal Abnormality in England, Scotland and Wales

abnormalities (such as holoprosencephaly, schizencephaly) and thoracic or high lumbar neural tube defects are relatively straightforward to diagnose. However, the outcome for other CNS abnormalities (such as mild to moderate ventriculomegaly) is much less certain and further investigations will be required to refine the diagnosis. This may mean that decisions based on optimal information cannot be made before 24 weeks of gestation. In 2008, one- third of terminations undertaken beyond 24 weeks were (...) the need for a repeat scan several weeks after the initial diagnosis. This can result in delayed diagnosis. Severe cardiac abnormalities Severe cardiac abnormalities have a reasonably predictable outcome. Once an abnormality has been identified, paediatric cardiologists can offer fairly accurate information on whether the anomaly can be corrected (to normal anatomy) or whether a palliative procedure is required, with the much greater risk of long term morbidity. In 2008, there were 17 late termi

. The patient's clinical symptoms subsequently improved and the pathologic findings showed degenerative fibrocartilaginous tissue. In addition, no neurological deterioration, central spinal fluid leakage, or arachnoiditis was observed. Currently, the usefulness of the transdural approach has been reported for cervical and thoracic disk herniation. According to our results, the transdural approach is recommended for resection of retro-odontoid pseudotumors because it enables direct decompression of the spinal (...) Microscopic Posterior Transdural Resection of Cervical Retro-Odontoid Pseudotumors Retro-odontoid pseudotumors are noninflammatory masses formed posterior to the odontoid process. Because of their anatomy, the optimal surgical approach for resecting pseudotumors is controversial. Conventionally, 3 approaches are used: the anterior transoral approach, the lateral approach, and the posterior extradural approach; however, each approach has its limitations. The posterior extradural approach
