Irrigation

Lavage Therapy


Presentation

  • The surgical procedure was carried out as planned and the patient presents no signs of recurrence of the disease one year after the intervention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 60-year-old Japanese male presented with a severe headache was diagnosed with a subarachnoid hemorrhage and an immediate surgical obliteration was successfully performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Two patients presented with cervico-thoraco-lumbar SEA. Laminectomies were performed at the natural apices of the spine, namely, at the midcervical, midthoracic, and midlumbar spine levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present here two patients with acute formed gastric bezoars due to plaster ingestion. Their main complaints were abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This disease is a rare finding in the head and neck region, and its presentation varies according to the area involved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Wound Infection
  • Our results suggested that there was no difference between peritoneal irrigation and suction alone in terms of intraabdominal abscess rate (odds ratio 2.39, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.49-11.74, P .28), wound infection (risk difference 0.00, 95% CI[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Frequently, povidone-iodine is used as a topical antiseptic for treating and preventing wound infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sneezing
  • Patients experience symptoms of nasal obstruction, rhinorrhoea, sneezing and nasal itching, which may affect their quality of life.Nasal irrigation with saline (salty water), also known as nasal douching, washing or lavage, is a procedure that rinses[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Abdominal Pain
  • A 50-year-old man was admitted with fever, abdominal pain, periumbilical fistula and pus in stool.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Their main complaints were abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Clinical examination revealed a slightly distended abdomen and a palpable mass in the epigastric region. Plain abdominal radiograph showed plaster casts in the stomach.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pus in Stool
  • A 50-year-old man was admitted with fever, abdominal pain, periumbilical fistula and pus in stool.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Lacrimation
  • Here we describe an alternate method of sinus access via lacrimal sinus diversion using a novel lacrimal diversion device (LDD). METHODS: A cadaveric study was performed using 12 disarticulated fresh heads.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Eruptions
  • In rare cases skin irritation or iododerma-like eruption could represent possible adverse effects due to the oxidative effects of iodine and allergic hypersensitivity reaction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • : volcanism is a fundamental driver and consequence of plate tectonics, the physical process reshaping the Earth's lithosphere; the world is home to more than 1,500 potentially active volcanoes, with over 500 of these having erupted in historical times[cia.gov]
Skin Lesion
  • This adverse reaction determined a severe edema and diffuse skin lesions, involving the whole left side of the face mimicking an iododerma-like eruption. These violent symptoms were solved after 60 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Epistaxis
  • Primary outcomes were patient-reported disease severity and a common adverse effect - epistaxis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Most treatment failures (12 of 15 failures) occurred within the initial 6 weeks of treatment; failures subsequent to 6 weeks occurred in 3% of those treated with chronic antibiotic suppression compared with 11% of those who were not treated with suppression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It needs careful monitoring and treatment. A 28-year-old woman with hepatic hydatid cysts who received operation treatment developed electrolyte disturbances.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • To date, he has suffered various recurrent epidural abscesses, which have been treated with surgical cleaning and antibiotic treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] on biofilms of E. faecalis isolate, which may be considered an effective protocol for root canal treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The treatment course was uneventful, and finally patients were discharged with good condition and referred to a psychiatric clinic for treatment of underlying psychological disorder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Monitoring and appropriate treatment are needed to improve prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However it is not clear whether the irrigation during operation improves the prognosis or gives rise to additional complications instead. This retrospective cohort study was conducted to determine this issue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Furthermore, the changing epidemiology of PAM highlights the importance of raising awareness about this disease among physicians treating persons showing meningitislike symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Therefore, determining the most prevalent pathotypes in food and environmental sources may help provide better guidance to various stakeholders in ensuring food safety and public health and advancing understanding of the epidemiology of enteric disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • BACKGROUND: Abnormal mucus composition and bacterial biofilms are thought to contribute to the pathophysiology of rhinosinusitis. Addition of a mucoactive surfactant to saline irrigation solution has been hypothesized to address these factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • The addition of suction permits the start of irrigation early after surgery and prevents severe post-operative complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Intraoperatively, we used a novel method of saline irrigation with 3% hypertonic saline, previously not tested on exposed nerves, in an attempt to prevent further recurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We pooled the effects of pocket irrigations on the prevention of pocket infection by meta-analysis methods.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Therefore, measures to prevent SSI in this field are urgently needed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Frequently, povidone-iodine is used as a topical antiseptic for treating and preventing wound infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
