A Massive Chylous Ascites With Severe Morbidity After Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy and Successful Treatment With Total Parenteral Nutrition and Octreotide.
A Massive Chylous Ascites With Severe Morbidity After Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy and Successful Treatment With Total Parenteral Nutrition and Octreotide. Exp Clin Transplant. 2019 Oct 11;: Authors: Zomorrodi A, Farshi A Abstract Kidney transplant is a choice option for treatment of chronic kidney failure because it is associated with cost-effective and normal quality of life. To increase the number of living kidney donors, laparoscopic and minimal invasive modalities have been introduced. Here, we present a case of a living donor with an extremely rare complication after laparoscopic donor nephrectomy that presented as massive chylous ascites. Kidney donor operation can be performed with the use of 3 modalities: traditional open, laparoscopic, and open with minimally invasive. All 3 modalities may be associated with some complications, including wound infection, hemorrhaging, and deep vein thrombosis. With regard to rare complications of chylous ascites after laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, few cases have been reported. To our knowledge, only 5 such cases have been reported thus far. Our patient, a 29-year-old male donor, received left donor nephrectomy via laparoscopy and was discharged 4 days later in good condition and without any problems. However, 3 weeks later, he presented with abdominal pain. During evaluation, massive ascites in the abdomen was observed and he was hospitalized. Abdominal paracentesis was performed and chylous ascites was dia...
We describe the most highly recommended generic and disease-specific PRO tools in SCD and discuss the challenges of incorporating them in clinical practice. EXPERT OPINION: PRO measures are essential to incorporate into SCD clinical trials either as primary or secondary outcomes. The use of PRO measures in SCD facilitates a patient-centered approach, which is likely to lead to improved outcomes. Significant challenges remain in adapting PRO tools to routine clinical use and in developing countries. PMID: 33034214 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Currently in fellowship doing bread/butter procedures (MBB, epidurals, PNB, few SCS/PNS trials, etc.) and just interviewed at a private practice spot where they do a lot of procedures that I will have not done any training in prior to graduating (e.g. IT pump, SI fusion, Vertiflex, Kypho, MILD, Discectomy, lots of SCS/PNS trials etc) and significant amount of "OR pain procedures" at a very busy practice seeing 30-40 pts/day - how many of you are commonly performing these procedures and are... private practice concern
This study investigated the factors associated with the nutritional status of school children in a rural municipality in Cebu, Philippines. Children aged 6-12 years (n = 327) and their parents were asked to participate. Children's anthropometric measurements were taken in schools, while interviews and measurements of parents were conducted at home. Children's nutritional status was assessed using height-for-age (HAZ) and weight-for-age (WAZ) z scores, while body mass index (BMI) was used for parents. Children's dietary patterns and physical activity, and household characteristics, such as food insecurity, eating ...

Conclusion: there is no increased risk of doing the lymph node dissection early on. Dr. Eggener-CON Basics Lymph node dissections rarely done, even for large tumors, because there is no proven therapeutic or staging benefit for low risk patients. A Mayo study revealed no data showing therapeutic benefit in high risk patients. For clinically node negative high risk patients, there is staging value but no proven therapeutic benefit. Rate of positive nodes is associated with stage and grade; the higher the stage and grade, the more likely there will be positive nod...
