Isolated roux loop pancreaticojejunostomy versus conventional pancreaticojejunostomy after pancreaticoduodenectomy: a case -control study

ConclusionsThe use of IPJ is associated with decrease in the rate of postoperative PF in patients undergoing PD. In addition, patients with IPJ reconstruction have lesser need for re-laparotomy and early resumption of oral feeding.

We report a patient who presented with abdominal distension and had raised tumor markers. A computed tomography scan revealed a calcified cystic lesion of the bladder dome together with features of PMP. These findings were confirmed at laparotomy, and cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy was performed. Histologically, the urachal lesion was a low-grade urachal mucinous tumor (mucinous cystic tumor of low malignant potential). The peritoneal disease was associated with ovarian involvement and omental cake and was designated low-grade mucinous carcinoma peritonei on histology. The immunoprofil...

AbstractColic is a serious disease for horses and the nutritional management of postoperative colic patients is an extremely important field. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyse the different factors, especially related to nutritional management, that may be associated with recovery length during hospitalization after a surgical intervention for colic, using a multivariate model. Data were collected from the records of horses presented to two hospitals and undergoing surgery for colic. The length (days) of recovery was the outcome of interest and was taken into account as a reference parameter (short, medium...

Publication date: May–June 2019Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Dipak Limbachiya, Mangirish Kenkre, Siddharth Shah, Rashmi KumariAbstractHemorrhage after gynecologic surgery is an infrequent complication. It can be divided based on time of onset into primary and secondary. Secondary hemorrhage is a life-threatening complication with a reported incidence of .17% to .45%. When the etiology cannot be ascertained and when the hemorrhage does not respond to conservative management, it is aptly labeled as an intractable hemorrhage. Numerous techniques have been used to manage s...

We report a case of misdiagnosed endometrial cancer by D&C, but with a positive cytopathological finding. Following that, a meta-analysis including 4,179 patients of endometrial diseases with cyto-histopathological results was performed to assess the value of the endometrial cytological method in endometrial cancer diagnosis. The pooled sensitivity and specificity of the cytological method in detecting endometrial atypical hyperplasia or cancer was 0.91[95% confidence interval (CI) 0.74–0.97] and 0.96 (95% CI 0.90–0.99), respectively. The pooled positive likelihood ratio and negative likelihood ratio was 25.4 (...

Abstract Endometriosis is a polygenic and multifactorial gynecology situation which might be associated with angiogenesis. In the current study we assess the role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) - 2578 A/C, and + 936 C/T polymorphisms in susceptibility to endometriosis and checking the expression of VEGF mRNA in eutopic tissue of endometrium with and without endometriosis. The study was comprised of 300 patients who underwent laparascopic or laparotomy surgery with 100 cases who had confirmed histological diagnosis of endometriosis, and 200 controls with no histological diagnosis of dise...

AbstractPrevious studies have had conflicting results when comparing risk of mortality in patients with gunshot wounds (GSWs) treated at Level-I and II trauma centers. However, the populations studied were restricted geographically. We hypothesized that patients presenting after a GSW to the torso at Level-I centers would have a shorter time to surgical intervention (exploratory laparotomy or thoracotomy) and a lower risk of mortality, compared to Level-IIs in a national database. The Trauma Quality Improvement Program (2010 –2016) was queried for patients presenting to Level-I or II trauma center after a GSW to the ...

This study aimed to value all the possible variables related to the successful of laparoscopic procedures; in fact, we investigated not only the uterine weight, but in our multivariate analysis, the position of the fibroids, the trocar's setting, etc. were analysed. What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? This study reported novel data about the feasibility of laparoscopic hysterectomy for enlarged uteri. In opposition to the literature, the uterine weight is not a predictive value for laparotomic conversion. Moreover, we discussed the possible reasons of our novel finding...

Authors: Çimen S, Taşdemir C, Vardı N, Ateş B, Taşdemir S, Özaydoğdu Çimen A Abstract Background/aim: The aim was to investigate the protective and therapeutic effects of ghrelin, which has antioxidant and antiinflammatory activity, on preventing kidney damage that occurs by induced partial ureteral obstruction in rats Materials and methods: Twenty-eight adult male rats were included in the study, and the rats were divided into 4 groups. After the laparotomy operation on the sham group, the ureter was identified in the retroperitoneal area and was duly sutured (n = 7). Ghrelin was admini...

Conclusion: Esophageal pH values decreased and continued to remain low following IAP increase and TP in this experimental rat model. Prolonged laparoscopic procedures can particularly lead to GER that requires instant recognition and rapid and appropriate intervention. PMID: 30997979 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
