Laparoscopic nephroureterectomy is associated with higher risk of adverse events compared to laparoscopic radical nephrectomy.

CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative complications within 30 days of surgery are common after LNU and LRN. Despite having technical similarities, LNU carries a significantly higher risk of developing short-term complications compared to LRN. This information should be considered when counseling patients prior to surgery. Notable limitations of this study included the lack of information on tumour stage and management of the distal ureter. PMID: 27217860 [PubMed]

I was offered an out of match fellowship position and accepted it 2 days ago. Now, due to family issues It would not be ideal for me to relocate to that area. Is there a way I can withdraw my acceptance (I haven’t sign the intent letter or anything whatsoever, just email agreement) or would it be profesional suicide?

Authors: Wan Q, Qian S, Huang Y, Zhang Y, Peng Z, Li Q, Shu B, Zhu L, Wang M Abstract Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of human morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although cholesterol-lowering drugs, including statins and recently approved PCSK9 inhibitors, together with antithrombotic drugs have been historically successful in reducing the occurrence of coronary artery disease (CAD), the high incidence of CAD remains imposing the largest disease burden on our healthcare systems. We reviewed cardiovascular drugs recently approved or under clinical development, with a particular focus on their pharmaco...

Authors: Li T, Yuan D, Yuan J Abstract Thrombosis, the localized clotting of blood that affects arterial or venous circulation, is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Arterial thrombosis is commonly initiated by vascular endothelial injury, while venous thrombosis mainly stems from blood stasis. Despite these differences, platelet adhesion, activation and aggregation, and fibrin formation as a result of coagulation constitute the fundamental processes of thrombus formation. Antithrombotic drugs permitted on the clinical currently can dramatically reduce major adverse cardiovascular events; however, they c...

Authors: Kimmig R, Verheijen RHM, Rudnicki M, SERGS Council Abstract All surgery performed in an epicenter of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, irrespective of the known or suspected severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) status of the patient, should be regarded as high risk and protection of the surgical team at the bedside should be at the highest level. Robot assisted surgery (RAS) may help to reduce hospital stay for patients that urgently need complex-oncological-surgery, thus making room for COVID-19 patients. In comparison to open or conventional laparoscopic surgery, R...

CONCLUSIONS: Insufficient documentation and inappropriate indications for IDC insertion were features noted during this audit. Daily electronic reminders and prompting concerning TROC are important to reduce catheter days and reduce infection rates. Indwelling catheters and associated infections impact the length of hospitalisation, mortality and morbidity of stroke patients. PMID: 32242174 [PubMed - in process]

We present a case of a nodule on the earlobe of an elderly patient, without any known clinical history. Microscopic examination revealed a tumor with morphology reminiscent of metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma. The results of an extensive immunohistochemical (IHC) examination confirmed our initial diagnosis and further investigation of the patient's medical history revealed that a unilateral nephrectomy had been performed 27 years prior to the current tumor. We are reporting this case to emphasize the long interval between the primary tumor and its metastasis in an extremely unusual site, with a brief discussion o...
