Prevention of postoperative pericardial adhesions in children with hypoplastic left heart syndrome

Reoperations for congenital cardiac defects are associated with an increased surgical risk due to adhesions. We compared the capability of a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane, synthetic polyethyleneglycol hydrogel (PEG), and a combination of them to prevent postoperative pericardial adhesions in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). Eighteen consecutive...

Tissue Restoration After Implantation of Polyglycolide, Polydioxanone, Polylevolactide, and Metallic Pins in Cortical Bone: An Experimental Study in Rabbits

We performed qualitative and histoquantitative investigations of tissue restoration after implanting polyglycolide (PGA), polydioxanone (PDS), polylevolactide (PLLA), and stainless steel pins in the intramedullary canal of rabbit femurs. The effect of bioabsorbable devices on healing of a cortical bone defect was also assessed. The cortical bone defect was created in the right...
