Innominate artery injury with arteriovenous fistula( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(Producer) Injury to the innominate artery may represent a Zone I cervical, thoracic outlet, or intrathoracic vascular injury and poses diagnostic, exposure, and management problems for the general, vascular, and thoracic surgeon. This complex injury becomes a new learning experience with each infrequent encounter. Here is presented a young woman who sustained a thoracic gunshot wound, producing innominate artery injury with AV fistulae. The method of repair is graphically illustrated, utilizing the bypass principle, with a synthetic conduit, and without use of systemic heparinization or complex temporary shunt
Bioterrorism : an assessment of medical response capabilities at Ben Taub General Hospital by Paul O Begnoche( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Prior to September 11th, 2001, it was believed that an attack against the United States was not likely. Terrorism experts have always agreed the probability of such an attack was low but added it was not a matter of if or when, but where the attack will take place. There have been several incidents throughout the world that clearly demonstrate the different forms of biological terrorism that exist and how they are used at the will of a terrorist. Terrorism experts estimate only 25 percent of hospitals are at some level of preparedness and therefore able to respond to a bioterrorism incident. A prepared facility will be better prepared to deal with unknown outcomes with greater confidence in the preparedness of the community. Health care organizations cannot delay in the development and implementation of disaster management plans in preparing for a bioterrorism event. This project evaluates the bioterrorism response capabilities at one of Houston's only two level-one trauma centers using a bioterrorism preparedness survey. The results indicate areas that must be improved or will have a profound impact on the readiness posture of the hospital. The project concludes with recommendations that should be addressed first. The facilities senior leadership should discuss all of the survey results to ensure the highest level of preparedness

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This project provides a business plan for establishing an international center of excellence for alcohol septal ablation at Ben Taub General Hospital.

The procedure involves the injection of ethanol alcohol into the left ventricle creating a controlled heart attack. This business plan provides a market analysis, volume forcast, staffing projections, and financial analysis. The five-year cumulative return on this project is approximately $5.4 million. Concluding analysis reveals the center of excellence can achieve profitability at the end of the first year of operations
