Peripheral leg ischemia detected via intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring during a multilevel complex anterior and posterior operation

Journal of Surgical Case Reports

Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring is a technique utilized during spinal operations to minimize sensory and motor function morbidity. We herein report a case of a 73-year-old female with renal cell carcinoma and metastatic involvement of the cervical and thoracic spine, who underwent a multilevel complex anterior and posterior operation. Neurophysiological monitoring was able to localize the lower limb ischemia utilizing somatosensory evoked potentials. This prompted intraoperative investigation of the peripheral ischemia, and the patient was found to have an Angio-Seal device embolus in the right popliteal artery that dislodged from the right femoral artery.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
