Disease relevance of Suction


High impact information on Suction

  • Patients in group 2 also had suction drainage, but the tetracycline (1.5 g) was instilled when the chest radiograph showed the lung to be re-expanded and the effusion drained, which was usually within 24 hours [5].
  • Management of sternal wound complications by high-pressure suction drainage via a polyurethane foam [6].
  • Under 50 and 200 mbar suctions, there was no statistical difference between the overall mechanical properties of control and patient aponeuroses [7].
  • Prophylactic metronidazole or suction drainage in abdominal hysterectomy [8].
  • Although the proportions of cases requiring urgent operation, intraoperative cholangiography, use of a fourth trocar, and use of drainage suction were similar, the difficulty score of the operation was lower (6.3 vs. 7.0, P =.03) and the operative time was shorter (44 vs. 61 minutes, P <.0001) in the ACG than in the TCG [9].

Associations of Suction with chemical compounds

  • In the second patient closed drainage and parenteral penicillin were not successful in eradicating the infection, and surgical incision with suction drainage was required [10].
  • After the operation, serum, urine, and wound suction drainage concentrations of tobramycin were determined serially by radioimmunoassay [11].
  • Intravenous antibiotics, local suction-drainage, and irrigation with a solution of 1% kanamycin and 0.1% polymyxin controlled the infection in each case [12].
  • METHODS: In a randomised, controlled, double blind, crossover trial, placebo (10 micrograms/kg) and 20 micrograms/kg alfentanil were infused in random order two minutes before three separate endotracheal suctions, at least six hours apart, to 10 infants [13].
  • Our protocol included preoperative albendazole for 4 weeks, laparoscopic cyst evacuation after its sterilization, and deroofing and suction drainage of the cavity, addition of omentoplasty if required, and a follow-up exceeding 6 months [14].

Gene context of Suction

  • The frequency of suction did not change the duration of feeding, but it was found that the efficiency of suction (number of suctions to ingest 1 cc) was significantly lower in the first minute (Anova, p < 0.05) (figure 4) [15].
  • Blood loss associated with Ring uncemented total knee replacement: comparison between continuous and intermittent suction drainage [16].
