Various anomalous muscles and fibrofascial structures have been described in relation to the anatomy of thoracic outlet syndrome. We describe two patients with a previously undescribed muscle anomaly, which originated laterally near the trapezius muscle, coursed across the supraclavicular space deep to the scalene fat pad, and attached obliquely to the superior undersurface of the medial clavicle, which we have termed the "supraclavius" muscle. The significance of the supraclavius muscle is unkn...

Intimal hyperplasia (IH) remains one of the primary causes of prosthetic vascular graft failure. The goal of this study is to engineer a vascular graft material that has the ability to knock down genes associated with IH by local delivery of a select siRNA moiety to cells surrounding the implant. Thrombospondin-2 (TSP-2), previously shown to have increased expression during graft implantation, is a logical candidate for knock down. TSP-2 siRNA, alone and when complexed with the transfection reag...

Background The Fistula Risk Score (FRS), a ten-point scale that relies on weighted influence of four variables, has been shown to effectively predict clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF) development and its consequences after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). The proposed FRS demonstrated excellent predictive capacity; however, external validation of this tool would confirm its universal applicability.

Abstract Background The Post‐operative Morbidity Index (PMI) is a quantitative utility measure of a complication burden created by severity weighting. The Fistula Risk Score (FRS) is a validated model that predicts whether a patient will develop a post‐operative pancreatic fistula (POPF). These novel tools might provide further discrimination of the ISGPF grading system. Methods From 2001 to 2012, 1021 pancreaticoduodenectomies were performed at four institutions. POPFs were categorized by ISGPF...

Introduction Intimal hyperplasia represents a complex pathologic vascular response to injury. Our group previously revealed that TSP-2 was associated with this response, and demonstrated that intraluminal delivery of TSP-2 siRNA can suppress the intimal hyperplastic response in an animal model. Furthermore, we have shown that siRNA can be incorporated into prosthetic graft material using a dip-coating technique. We sought to determine whether this method could be employed for siRNA delivery in o...

Background The efficacy of pancreaticojejunal (P-J) anastomotic stents in preventing clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistulas (CR-POPF) after pancreatic resection is poorly understood. We sought to compare the outcomes of stented and nonstented patients in light of recognized risk-factors for the development of CR-POPF and to determine whether outcomes differed once there was a change in practice where use of stents was abandoned. Methods A total of 444 patients underwent proximal p...
