Laparoendoscopic single site (LESS) ureteral reimplantation.
CONCLUSIONS: LESS ureteral reimplantation, in our initial experience, shows a low complication rate, similar to current laparoscopic series, offering less postoperative pain and abdominal wall aggression with great cosmetic results that are perceived by patients very positively, in addition to rapid recovery and return to normal daily life.

CONCLUSION: Compared with control intervention, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation supplementation intervention was found to significantly reduce pain and morphine requirement over a period of 24 h and to promote functional recovery in patients who have undergone total knee arthroplasty.

This study demonstrates that AAV vectors with a GFAP promoter are capable of discriminating for SGC transduction when delivered into the DRG.
CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of cervical cancer in Jordan is low compared to regional estimates and remained relatively constant between 2008 and 2013. Implementation of screening measures could lead to better case finding, early diagnosis, and prevention of cervical cancer. PMID: 28932241 [PubMed]

AbstractBackgroundPostoperative adhesions are the major cause of postoperative complications including intestinal obstruction, infertility, and chronic pelvic pain. In order to reduce postoperative adhesions, Terumo Corporation (Tokyo, Japan) has developed an adhesion barrier system (TCD-11091) which is easy to use at the treatment site in various surgical procedures including laparoscopic surgeries. We conducted a prospective randomized single-blind study in patients who underwent laparotomy with ileostomy.Methods and ResultsOne hundred twenty-six patients were randomly assigned to TCD-11091 group (n = 62) or no...
ConclusionEven though there is no strong evidence to support its use, utilization rates of mesh for laparoscopic PEHR remained high and stable between 2011 and 2014 in the USA. The use of mesh was not associated with a higher incidence of postoperative complications.
Conclusions: Palliative surgery using PDFIV can improve neurological function and alleviate pain effectively, and allow low cement leakage and timely disposal of leakage combined with intraoperative visual vertebroplasty.
Conclusions: There is no significant advantage of 1-stage posterior corpectomy over decompression with fusion. Furthermore, more blood loss and longer operative time may increase the risk of postoperative complications following corpectomy. For this reason, 1-stage posterior corpectomy to control thoracic metastasis should be considered with caution.
Study Design: Prospective cohort study. Summary of Background Data: Minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) has been gaining recognition in patients with metastatic spine disease (MSD). The advantages are reduction in blood loss, hospital stay, and postoperative morbidity. Most of the studies were case series with very few comparing the outcomes of MISS to open approaches. Objective: To evaluate and compare the clinical and perioperative outcomes of MISS versus open approach in patients with symptomatic MSD, who underwent posterior spinal stabilization and/or decompression. Patients and Methods: Our study included 45 M...
