Endoscopic resection of the pancreatic tail and subsequent wound healing mechanisms in a porcine model.

CONCLUSION: Purely transgastric endoscopic resection of the pancreas is a safe, effective, and feasible procedure, but the incidence of pancreatic leakage in total pancreatic tail resection is high. The expression of TGF-β1 and Smad3/Samd7 is related to the progression of pancreatic wound healing. PMID: 31210714 [PubMed - in process]

De CarlisAbstractIntroductionPatients with a single small Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) may be definitively treated by Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) with a very low rate of peri-operative morbidity. However, results are still controversial comparing RFA to Liver Resection (LR).MethodsAll consecutive patients treated by RFA or LR for a single untreated small HCC on liver cirrhosi...

AbstractObjectiveIn this systematic review, we evaluated all literature reporting on the surgical treatment of primary epigastric hernias, primarily focusing on studies comparing laparoscopic and open repair, and mesh reinforcement and suture repair.MethodsA literature search was conducted in Embase.com, PubMed and the Cochrane Library up to 24 April 2019. This review explicitly excluded literature on incisional hernias, ventral hernias not otherwise specified, and isolated (para)umbilical hernias. Primary outcome measures of interest were early and late postoperative complications.ResultsWe  obtained a total of ...

AbstractPelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) can cause lymphoceles. Lymphocele formation following PLND can reach up to 60% and are symptomatic in 0.4 to 16% of patients. The aim of the study was to identify factors that are significantly associated with lymphocele  drainage. We retrospectively analysed all men that underwent RALP between April 2010 and November 2018 from our prospectively collected IRB approved database. All patients who developed lymphoceles were grouped into two groups, the ones who were drained and those not drained. Chi-square test was used to perform univariate analysis for categorical varia...

AbstractIntroductionUp to 30  % of patients undergoing bariatric surgery are dissatisfied with treatment outcomes in the long term. The aim of this study was to examine overall satisfaction with treatment 5 years after bariatric surgery and its association with body mass index (BMI) and health-related quality of life (HRQOL).MethodsPatients were surveyed 5  years after bariatric surgery; 108 patients had duodenal switch (DS) and 153 patients had laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). The main outcome was overall treatment satisfaction, assessed by a single question, and analyzed by multiple logistic regressi...

Conclusions: Our study demonstrates that baseline arthroscopy performance correlates most highly with 3D video game experience. The ability of trainees to learn arthroscopy using a virtual reality simulator appears to be influenced more by those who have regularly participated in sports requiring hand eye coordination rather than video game use.Level of Evidence: III.

AbstractIntroductionA gastrostomy placement (GP) is an established treatment to provide enteral feeding in pediatric patients with feeding difficulties aiming to improve nutritional status and health-related quality of life (HRQoL). The aim of this study was to evaluate HRQoL in children with severe feeding difficulties who have undergone GP.Materials and methodsA cross-sectional study was performed including 128 patients who had undergone laparoscopic GP (2004 –2011). HRQoL was evaluated using the validated Pediatric Quality of Life 4.0 Inventory. Multiple regression analysis was performed to identify predictors of ...
