lo MF Abstract BACKGROUND: Pneumoperitoneum and nonphysiological positioning required for robotic surgery increase cardiopulmonary risk because of the use of larger airway pressures (Paws) to maintain tidal volume (VT). However, the quantitative partitioning of respiratory mechanics and transpulmonary pressure (PL) during robotic surgery is not well described. We tested the following hypothesis: (1) the components of driving pressure (transpulmonary and chest wall components) increase in a parallel fashion at robotic surgical stages (Trendelenburg and robot docking); and (2) deep, when compared to routine (moderat...

Authors: Karaca O, Pınar HU Abstract Postoperative opioid administration can cause various side effects, such as drowsiness, respiratory distress, postoperative nausea, and vomiting. The use of non-opioid medications as part of a multimodal analgesia method has been increasingly suggested in the management of acute postsurgical pain. Erector spinae plane block (ESPB), which is a regional anesthesia technique, blocks both visceral and somatic nerve fibers. Though it is infrequently used in young patients, presently described is a series of cases in which ESPB was successfully used in the performance of pediatric la...

ConclusionThere does not appear to be a survival advantage with the use of diverting loop ileostomy with colonic lavage compared to TAC for fulminant CDI. However, diverting loop ileostomy with colonic lavage results in increased rates of colonic preservation, restoration of intestinal continuity, and laparoscopic surgery. This review is limited by the small number of included studies.

AbstractPurpose of reviewWe sought to understand the key aspects to optimize in the perioperative period when treating an elderly surgical patient with inflammatory bowel disease.Recent findingsAddressing preoperative polypharmacy, frailty, and nutrition is important in the elderly population. Understanding intraoperative principles of oncologic risk and pouch formation and the advantages of laparoscopy are key. Postoperative-enhanced recovery pathways and VTE prophylaxis are essential for high-quality care.SummaryPreoperative, perioperative, and postoperative factors can greatly impact elderly patients ’ surgical outcomes.

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Eric M. Chevli, Tyler J. Maiers, David J. Abramowitz, Shervin Badkhshan, John J. BodkinAbstract:Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare condition with left-right mirror imaging of both abdominal and thoracic organs. While this configuration is rarely of medical importance, an understanding of this unique anatomy is essential in the setting of surgical intervention. Here we review a case of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in the setting of SIT. The patient underwent a hand-assisted laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. Pathology revealed pT3aNxM...

ConclusionsOur results revealed specific details regarding residents’ error management strategies and provides validity evidence for the use of human factors error frameworks in surgical performance assessments. Practice in simulation-based learning environments may improve resident decision-making and error management opportunities by providing a structured experience where errors are explicitly characterized and used for training and feedback. Error management training may play a major role in equipping residents and junior faculty with the skills required for independent, high-quality operative performance.
