The article presents a study which investigates the rate of clinical results, safety and recanalization of the use of Merci retriever embolectomy device in embolectomy procedures. The study compared the data of Merci Registry with the data from the Mechanical Embolus Removal in Cerebral Ischemia (MERCI) and Multi MERCI trials and assessed the outcomes at 24 hours, discharge, and 90 days. Results indicate that embolectomy during intubation was associated with higher risk of the rate of mortality.

    The article focuses on the prediction of mortality risk in patients undergoing bariatric surgery which has become increasingly common in the U.S. It says that the total mortality risk within 90 days of surgery is 0.5 percent. It states that the variation of mortality risk relies on risk factors...
