Wilson, Sandeep NayakAbstractMedical devices are one way by which healthcare-associated infections can be transmitted. Medical equipment can be categorized based on its risk of spreading infection and these categories aid decisions about whether to decontaminate or dispose of a used medical device. Decontamination is the process by which a reusable device is rendered safe for further use through cleaning and either disinfection or sterilization. It is frequently an automated process which usually involves...

WeissAbstractA systematic review of clinical trials investigating the safety and efficacy of left gastric artery (LGA) embolization as a bariatric procedure was performed. The Methodological Index for Nonrandomized Studies (MINORS) instrument was used for quality assessment. Patient characteristics, weight loss after embolization, and complications were reviewed. Meta-regression was performed to assess associations of age, sex, body mass ...

Conclusion The impact of sepsis on the gut is manifold, e.g., sepsis mediated alteration of the gut-blood barrier and increase in the intestinal permeability, which may correlate with the phenomena of bacterial translocation and lymphatic activation (“toxic-lymph”). Systemic consequences of sepsis are widespread and concern to the coagulative system, the microbiome as well as enzymes, such as pancreatic proteases, MMPs and IAPs. Nevertheless, the therapeutic approaches for modulating the mucosal immune system are still rarely effective in daily routine. Recent published studies showing that treatment with FMT,...

Discussion Gastrostomy tubes (GT or GTubes) have been used to support patients for about a century. They are placed between the abdominal skin and the stomach either percutaneously or surgically. The tubes can be a standard long tube with either a bumper or inflatable balloon internally and externally they have a retention piece to hold the GT in place. A button or low profile tube are similar but extend just beyond the skin. Reasons for GT placement include: Nutritional support Hydration maintenance Medication management Aspiration avoidance Gastric stasis decompression Obstruction bypass Quality of life improvement for...

This report presents a patient who developed acute pancreatitis immediate post-LSG. Patient was referred to our institute on 10th post-operative day with a complaint of fever, nausea, abdominal pain and leucocytosis. A diagnostic laparoscopy showed pancreatitis. Post-operatively, the patient was managed on treatment line of acute pancreatitis and recovered well. LSG is a common procedure in bariatric, and the most common complications are leakage and bleeding from the suture line. However, we encountered pancreatitis after LSG which is a rarely reported complication after LSG. We hypothesise that the development of acute p...

Authors: Yang L, Liu J, Xing Y, Du L, Chen J, Liu X, Hao J Abstract Hyperlipidemic acute pancreatitis (HLAP) is characterized by critical condition and high recurrence rate compared with non-HLAP. We conducted this study to investigate the value of body mass index and waist-hip ratio in predicting severity and local complications in HLAP. 96 patients with HLAP were categorized by body mass index and waist-hip ratio, respectively. According to the body mass index, they were divided into 3 groups, including normal weight, overweight, and obesity. According to the waist-hip ratio, they were divided into central obesit...

This study aims to determine the effect that excess weight and obesity have on acute general surgical conditions. METHODS: A prospective observational cohort study comparing the pattern of acute general surgical admissions in patients with a BMI>25 kg/m2 to those with a normal BMI from a single tertiary-level hospital. RESULTS: There were 2,676 (21.5%) patients who were overweight or obese (mean BMI 32.4 ± 6.3 kg/m2). These patients were significantly younger than those with normal BMI (48.3 ± 18.1 years versus 50.5 ± 22.4 years; p
