Conclusions Surgical experience varied among FMPRS surgical fellows. Case volume was somewhat but not completely associated with self-perceived ability to practice a procedure independently.

Conclusion: There was no significant difference between the groups in terms of tube changes and side effects. So that we can start with the largest possible uncuffed tube to decrease ETT leak, both laparotomy and laparoscopic operations in children can be achieved with safe mechanical ventilation and target tidal volume.

Conclusion: This study expanded the spectrum of STK11 gene mutations and further elucidated individuals with null mutations of STK11 typically had an earlier onset of PJS symptoms and needed earlier management. PMID: 32462036 [PubMed - in process]
Uterine fibroids (leiomyoma) are benign monoclonal neoplasms of the myometrium and represent the most common tumors in women worldwide. Tumors occur in ∼77% of women overall and are clinically manifest in ∼25% by age 45 years. Although benign, these tumors are nonetheless associated with significant morbidity; they are the primary indication for hysterectomy, and a major source of gynecologic and reproductive dysfunction, ranging from profuse m enstrual bleeding and pelvic pain to infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and preterm labor.
Conclusion: Adding a BM-TT to FIT-screening considerably reduces colonoscopy burden, but could also decrease screening effectiveness. Combining FIT15 with a high polyp sensitivity BM-TT seems most promising. PMID: 32462913 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractThis video shows the case of a 64-year-old morbidly obese woman, with a non-adjustable gastric band, who consulted for weight regain and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms and was converted to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). The operative technique included extensive lysis of adhesions, complete band dissection, partial gastrectomy of the fundus and body due to band erosion and conversion to RYGB.
ConclusionCombined laparoscopic pouch resizing and distalization are safe and can lead to adequate weight loss. This technique allows the combination of an added restriction and malabsorption to the previous RYGB and could lead to an improved weight loss.
