Conclusion The concordance between CT ELISA and CT immunoblot is moderate. Due to separate criteria for positivity of both tests there is a significant difference in sensitivity and specificity. PPV and NPV, the most relevant characteristics for clinicians, of both tests did not differ significantly. The distribution of individual antibodies and the adjustment of the immunoblot algorithm will be further explored in the future in order to develop a potentially better prediction method for TFI with a higher clinical accuracy.

Conclusion ERAS protocols in liver surgery appeared to be safe and effective. Recent recommendations from the ERAS group in liver surgery are the only ones published so far. Other studies evaluating ERAS components in liver surgery and recommendations from scientific societies are needed to spread this clinical care pathway.

We report middle age man with skin hyperpigmentation oral and lip mucous membranes, general malaise and depression. Further examinations lead to adrenal insufficiency, Addison's disease. Imaging studies show bilateral adrenal hyperplasia, show negative result for tuberculosis. We perform laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Multiple caseosa necrosis in gross specimen and Langhan's giant cells microscopic appearance ensure patient suffered Addison's disease cause by adrenal gland tuberculosis.

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has become the most frequently performed bariatric surgery in recent years [1,2]. The procedure has gained popularity both among surgeons and patients for its seemingly reduced technical complexity and more favorable long-term complication profile. In patients with body mass index (BMI) less than 50 kg/m2, both procedures have been shown to be equally effective in weight loss at three- year follow up [3]. Comparable results are described when not controlling for BMI [2].

Patients with liver cirrhosis represent a high risk group for colorectal surgery. The safety and effectiveness of laparoscopy in colorectal surgery for cirrhotic patients is not clear. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of laparoscopic colorectal surgery with those of open procedure for colorectal cancer in patients with liver cirrhosis.
