A surgical correction [CTR] is possible fix for airway obstruction necess. trach, how soon do you rec doing this major surgery with high risk of complications?

A surgical correction [CTR] is possible fix for airway obstruction necess. trach, how soon do you rec doing this major surgery with high risk of complications?

When it's safe: Your question is a little confusing. Not sure what ctr is. Anytime the benefits outweigh the risks, that's the time to do the intervention, whether it be surgery or medications. The airway is the most important of all body functions. Without a patent airway, nothing else works. If there is an obstructed airway, then the sooner a procedure to correct this is done, then the better. ...Read more

Another doctor on here said the post surgical mortality rate is 2%. That can't possibly be correct, even with cleft palate surgery right?

Another doctor on here said the post surgical mortality rate is 2%. That can't possibly be correct, even with cleft palate surgery right?

Procedure dependent: The risk of dying (mortality) and developing complications (morbidity) is dependent on the diagnosis, the procedure, the condition of the patient and the situation (emergent vs elective). Most elective procedures have very low mortality rates, clearly cleft palate surgery in a child without other risk factors (e.g. Cardiac defects) will be low, very low, on the order of 0.1% or less. ...Read more

Can excess beer (8) cause damage/complications to open umbilical hernia surgery no mesh, one night after 2 1/2 weeks post op due to alcohol/bloating?

Can excess beer (8) cause damage/complications to open umbilical hernia surgery no mesh, one night after 2 1/2 weeks post op due to  alcohol/bloating?

Yes: alcohol in any amount, but particularly in large amounts, impairs the body's ability to fight infection and heal properly. Binge drinking is associated with increased problems with car accidents, sexual assault, falls, as well as illnesses like pancreatitis, bleeding from the stomach and many other problems.

Can Sympathetic Nerve Block procedure help/cure tachycardia/angina/vascular issues as well as pain that I've had after traumatic drug reaction?

Can Sympathetic Nerve Block procedure help/cure tachycardia/angina/vascular issues as well as pain that I've had after traumatic drug reaction?

Most of no use.: Synthetic nerve block had been successful, but I doubt that it will help in any of your conditions. I am not quite sure about if it will help in vascular issues as you have not specified about what veins and what kind of vascular problem, I also cannot answer about your traumatic drug reaction as you did not indicate what type of drug was involved and what kind of reaction. ...Read more

Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?

Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?

Coblation: Understand, these treatments are low (not zero) risk, but for what purpose? Contained herniation means that there is no pressure on the nerves, and the disc is simply not in a "normal" location within the disc space. Study? Fine. These haven't worked except temporarily in the lumbar spine. I would be pessimistic. Maximize mckenzie pt. Not heat/us/tens as they are useless. If no other option, fine. ...Read more

Are pars defects a long term (like life long) kind of problem. 8 months post op direct repair still consisten pain like preop just not quite as bad.

Instability: If a pars fracture does not come to union (bones fuse back together) with or without surgery then one could have chronic spinal instability and pain and would be a life long problem.
