CA-3 Resident Dr. Justin Smith and graduated resident Dr. Scott Licata were coauthors with Dr. Vahe Tateosian on an "Images in Anesthesiology" contribution that will appear in an upcoming issue of Anesthesiology. The image shows two rapidly expanding intracranial arterial aneurysms of the left posterior cerebral artery (A) and left internal carotid artery (B) in a 4.7-kg, 2-month-old, full-term female with SCALP (sebaceous nevus syndrome, CNS malformations, aplasia cutis congenita, limbal dermoid, and pigmented nevus) syndrome.
CA-1 Resident Dr. Ehab Al Bizri is a co-author with Attendings Drs. Rany Makaryus and Stephen Probst and Adjunct Faculty member Dr. Helene Benveniste on a paper to be published in Anesthesiology. The paper concerns the effects of dexmedetomidine and isoflurane on solute transport via the glymphatic pathway. See image under New Publications below.
Congratulations to CA-1 Resident Leif Ericksen for being the lead author of the monograph “Enhanced Surgical Recovery: From Principles to Standard of Care.” The article is featured in the latest publication of Congress Review, a supplement to Anesthesiology News. It is a review of the Annual Congress of Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Medicine held on April 27-29, 2017 in Washington, DC.
Department members will be making presentations and moderating sessions at the annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. The meeting will be held in Boston from October 21-25.
Please visit our Presenters while you are at the ASA meeting. And, don't forget to take photos of department members standing in front of posters! We can use these in November's issue of SleepTalker, on our website and in the library display case.
