Authors: Pederson H, Staples CJ, Housewright C Abstract When treating invasive basal cell carcinoma (BCC) with Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS), including infiltrative and nodular subtypes, the goal is complete surgical removal of the tumor. In some cases, after several stages of MMS, residual foci of superficial BCC are noted with no dermal invasive components apparent. Some patients and surgeons have opted for halting surgery and treating residual superficial BCC with adjuvant topical fluorouracil. In this retrospective study, this treatment method is shown to be effective with a recurrence rate of BCC of 3.7% ove...
Which of these is better for my adversity essay for secondaries: 1) My mom was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer at the end of my second year in undergrad. I had to drive back and forth from school (2 hour trip) to take care of her and attend her chemo sessions and surgeries in addition to keeping of my school work and activities. 2) I moved around a lot cross-county when I was growing up. I only went to each school for K-12 for a max of 2 years before changing schools. This led to... Adversity topic for secondaries
ConclusionAWRC is a useful technique for safe and efficient bile duct cannulation for therapeutic ERCP in the setting of choledocholithiasis at the time of CCY. Despite supine (rather than the traditional prone) positioning, total ERCP times were short and we eliminated any manipulation of the pancreatic duct. No patients in our series developed PEP or post-sphincterotomy bleeding.
ConclusionRobotically assisted Heller myotomy and POEM are safe and efficacious treatments for achalasia with lower rates of technical complications compared to laparoscopic Heller myotomy. With the advancements in endoscopic instruments and robotic surgery, POEM and robotically assisted Heller myotomy should be considered in the treatment of achalasia and esophageal dysmotility disorders.
ConclusionsOur study of published trials indicates that using low, as opposed to standard, IAP during laparoscopic cholecystectomy may reduce patients ’ post-operative pain, including shoulder pain, and length of hospital stay. Heterogeneity in the pooled estimates and high risk of bias of the included trials suggest the need for high-quality, adequately powered RCTs to confirm these findings.
ConclusionsLaparoscopy is effective in treating SBOs due to various etiologies including single band or multiple adhesions, hernias, or masses. Other than BMI, there was no single predictor of success or failure with laparoscopy. Therefore, we conclude that perhaps all patients requiring operative treatment for SBO deserve consideration for a diagnostic laparoscopy.
