A rare case of bullhorn-injury associated traumatic hernia of anterior abdominal wall managed by laparoscopic sutured tissue-only repair - Singh KD, Singh V, Gupta P, Mani R.

Traumatic abdominal wall hernias (TAWHs) are relatively uncommon entities. Common mechanisms that predispose to such hernias include motor vehicle accidents, seat belt injuries, fall from height, handlebar injuries, and bullfighting. Bullhorn injury leadin...

AbstractPurposeWe investigated the etiology and impact on outcomes of polycystic kidney disease in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm.MethodsEight-hundred patients who underwent open (n = 603) or endovascular aortic repair (n = 197) were divided into three groups: no cyst (n = 204), non-polycystic kidney (n = 503), and polycystic kidney (≥ 5 cysts in the bilateral kidneys,n = 93). The characteristics and outcomes were compared among the groups.ResultsIn the polycystic kidney group, the age was increased and the proportions of patients with...

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

The influence of the α/β ratio on treatment time iso-effect relationships in the central nervous system. Int J Radiat Biol. 2020 Apr 03;:1-25 Authors: Jones B, Klinge T, Hopewell JW Abstract Purpose: To investigate the influence of changes in α/β ratio (range 1.5-3 Gy) on iso-effective doses, with varying treatment time, in spinal cord and central nervous system tissues with comparable radio-sensitivity. It is important to establish if an α/β ratio of 2 Gy, the accepted norm for neuro-oncology iso-effect estimations, can be used.Methods: The rat spinal cor...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...

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...
