This study was aimed at assessing the role of H. pylori infection in GERD utilizing a large cohort of patients diagnosed with GERD. Methods and Materials: All patients who underwent gastroscopy for an indication of GERD during the study period between 2015 and 2017 at the EMMS Nazareth Hospital were considered eligible for the study and therefore were included. H. pylori infection was determined by the rapid urease test or histology. Severity of esophagitis was assessed using the Los Angeles classification. Univariate analysis was performed to figure out differences between patients according to H. pylori infection sta...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the polyp detection rate and its influence on post-colonoscopy colorectal cancer rate. PATIENTS AND METHODS: in this study, 12,482 colonoscopies conducted by 14 endoscopists were analyzed. The polyp detection rate was calculated for each endoscopist. Endoscopists were grouped into quartiles (Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4), from lowest to highest polyp detection rate, in order to evaluate whether there were any differences in the development of post-colonoscopy colorectal cancer. RESULTS: the lowest polyp detection rate was 20.66% and the highest was 52.16%, ...

This study analyzed the increased costs of RAS in common surgical procedures using the National Inpatient Sample.MethodsRetrospective analysis of the 2012 –2014 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project-NIS was performed for the following laparoscopic/robotic procedures: cholecystectomy, ventral hernia repair, right and left hemicolectomy, sigmoidectomy, abdominoperineal resection, and total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH). Patients with additional concu rrent procedures were excluded. Costs were compared between the laparoscopic procedures and their RAS counterparts. Total costs and charges for cholecystectomy (the most ...

ConclusionsThe Retzius-sparing approach significantly reduces time to continence following RALP. Further studies are required to confirm the reproducibility of our results and investigate the role of the RS-RALP as an additional “protective” factor for postoperative continence in the elderly population.

AbstractBackgroundTo evaluate the efficacy and safety of temporary simultaneous two-arterial occlusions (TESTO) in terms of operative blood loss during laparoscopic myomectomy.MethodsA total of 62 patients with symptomatic myomas were randomly assigned to either the experimental group or the control group. In the experimental group, the uterine arteries and utero-ovarian arteries were temporarily occluded with laparoscopic bulldog clamps. The primary outcome measures were operative blood loss and change in hemoglobin.ResultsThere were no differences in baseline demographics between the two groups. The amounts of operative ...

AbstractThis retrospective study compared the immediate post-operative short-term outcomes of Lateral Approach-Video Endoscopic Inguinal Lymphadenectomy (L-VEIL) and open surgery approach in patients with TNM stage N0 and N1 tumors. Inguinal lymphadenectomies performed for various TNM stage N0 and N1 cancers between January 2011 and December 2015 at a single center were analyzed by collecting data from operation theater records and case files. Mean blood loss, operative time, drain output, nodal yield, nodal positivity, and complications were analyzed as post-procedural outcomes. Among the 116 surgeries performed, 92 were ...

This study sought to identify EBS-associated risk of recurrent biliary obstruction and postoperative SSI, with particular attention whether it was replaced with external drainage methods before surgery.MethodsFrom January 2005 to December 2014, 102 consecutive patients with perihilar biliary cancer who underwent PBD followed by hepatobiliary resection were analyzed.ResultsAmong the enrolled patients, 49 (48.0%) underwent total 76 re-interventions due to recurrent biliary obstruction with a median number of 1 (range, 1 to 6). Cholangitis occurred more frequently in patients with EBS (26.9%) than in other methods (P
