Surgeons favoring tourniquet-free knee replacements

By Tom Lloyd | Staff Writer Dr. Kenneth Sands.
[email protected]
Everybody has heard of tourniquets. In
cases of traumatic bleeding a tourniquet can
save your life.

In a total knee replacement procedure,
however, there’s now ample evidence that
tourniquets may actually do more harm
than good.

Sebastian River Medical Center ortho-
pedic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Sands has seen
more than his share of traumatic bleeding
after spending more than a dozen years as a
U.S. Army surgeon.

That said, Sands has also spent the past
six years performing “total knee arthrosco-
pies” or knee replacement surgeries at a rate
of close to 60 procedures a month and, as he
puts it, “one of the things we are doing now
that’s different is something called tourni-
quet-less total knee replacements.”

Bucking a more than half-century-old
formula, Sands and many other ortho-
pedic surgeons have now turned to the
tourniquet-less technique to help speed
recovery times and allow patients to com-
fortably leave the hospital in less than 24
hours after surgery.

“In a traditional total knee procedure,”
Sands explains, “we’d put a tourniquet on the
thigh to decrease blood loss during the oper-
ation. That’s been standard care for 60-some-
odd years.” But Science Direct’s Seminars on
Arthroplasty says “we have encountered no
difference in blood loss or transfusion rates”
between the two approaches.

Sand then adds, “the downside of using
a tourniquet is, patients end up having a lot
of thigh pain after the operation. If you have
a lot of thigh pain after the operation, that
tends to decrease your ability to [start on]
your physical therapy.”

The National Institutes of Health agrees. It
says that in clinical trials comparing patient
outcomes with and without tourniquets, “pa-
tients in the non-tourniquet group showed a
better outcome in all knee replacements and
better early knee range of motion.”

And then there’s the pain factor.

From Sanchez, a ‘collage’ education in sophisticated art

By Ellen Fischer | Columnist Tim Sanchez.
[email protected]
Tim Sanchez needs no introduction to his
Vero Beach public. His paintings, which com-
prise expressionist abstracts with collaged-on
elements, as well as moody landscapes and
spare interior scenes, can be seen in a number
of private collections in the 32963 area, as well
as a public one; the Vero Beach Museum of Art
added a large Sanchez painting to its perma-
nent collection in 2014.

“The collectors here have responded to my
work so positively,” says Sanchez.

He notes that demand for his work – es-
pecially his collage paintings – is associated
with the increased sophistication of art lov-
ers who, like him, have come to live on the
barrier island.

When Sanchez and husband Jim Haigney
moved here from Long Island 17 years ago,
a taste for nonrepresentational painting
had not yet been established among the
art-buying public.

“People looked at art in a more decorative
way,” Sanchez says, tactfully.

He attributes the rise in interest in post-
World War II art, from abstract expressionism
to digital projection, to Vero’s Museum of Art,
as well as its contemporary retail galleries.

With affection, Sanchez recalls gallerist

when his teacher, a recent Yale Art School
graduate named Richard Baumlier, offered
Sanchez some memorable advice.

great vegetarian dish.

My husband’s Scottish salmon, encrust-

was served atop beautiful asparagus

spears, the chef’s rice, and topped with a

lobster saffron cream sauce.

Then to conclude another great evening

at the Yellow Dog, along with espressos,

I enjoyed the chocolate walnut dog bone

brownie with vanilla ice cream and my

husband had an excellent crème brulee.

By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist A Q 10 6 5 4

Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “What strikes me is that there’s a very fine line between Q92
success and failure. Just one ingredient can make the difference.”
Sometimes, that ingredient is being in the right place at the right time, not pure talent. J96542 EAST
In today’s deal, what do you think of the auction, and what should West have led against 10 7 5 K Q 10 3
five diamonds? AK3
North, especially given the favorable vulnerability, might have made a three-heart weak
jump overcall, but that would not have worked well here. South, fearing a bad misfit, 4
would probably have passed throughout. When North passed, East added 3 points for
his singleton and made a game-invitational limit raise. Now South might have bid four no- Q85
trump to show his minor two-suiter, but with longer and stronger diamonds, he chose to
intervene with four diamonds. In a way West did well to bid four spades, because it would SOUTH
have made, but it persuaded South to persevere with five clubs. West doubled that and,
on less firm ground, North’s correction to five diamonds. A

There is a reliable rule: When the opponents are sacrificing, lead a trump. Here, as long 7
as West then wins the first and second rounds of clubs to continue leading trumps, the
defenders will take three club tricks for down one. AKJ863

At the table, West started with a spade. Now declarer played on clubs, eventually J 10 6 4 2
benefiting from the 3-3 break, losing only two clubs and scoring plus 550.
Dealer: West; Vulnerable: East-West
