Fundamentals of Anorectal Technical Skills: A Concise Surgical Skills Course.

This study was granted an educational exception by the Institutional Review Board at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. RESULTS: Forty-three learners participated in this course. Forty-six percent of participants had not participated in any anorectal cases, 26% had participated in 1 to 5 cases, 17% had participated in 6 to 10 cases, 6% had been involved with 11 to15 cases, and 6% had been involved with more than 15 cases. For learners who had no prior experience, 1 to 5 prior cases, or 6 to 10 cases, there were statistically and educationally significant increases in confidence for all diagnoses and procedures. Additionally, there were statistically and educationally significant increases between pre-course and post-course quiz scores for learners who had no prior experience (7.8 ± 2.0 vs. 11.8 ± 2.5, P

Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

AbstractAluminum potassium sulfate and tannic acid (ALTA) injection is a new sclerosing therapy for internal hemorrhoids that has been gaining widespread use. However, there have been few reports about rectal cancer after ALTA injection. We performed laparoscopic surgery for three patients who had underwent ALTA therapy 6 months or 1 year earlier: (i) a 51 ‐year‐old man with neuroendocrine tumor; (ii) a 44‐year‐old woman with rectal cancer; and (iii) 77‐year‐old man with rectal cancer. All three patients had sclerosis of the resected rectal wall stump, making transection of the rectum difficult. Histological ex...

Conclusion The higher serum levels of LDH and YKL-40 are suggestive for Anorectal Melanoma diagnosis. The decrease of these findings may be associated with good prognosis. The review of both APR and WLE options suggests no significant difference in survival among patients.

This article deals with the diagnosis and management of common anorectal emergencies such as acutely thrombosed external hemorrhoid, thrombosed or strangulated internal hemorrhoid, bleeding hemorrhoid, bleeding anorectal varices, anal fissure, irreducible or strangulated rectal prolapse, anorectal abscess, perineal necrotizing fasciitis (Fournier gangrene), retained anorectal foreign bodies and obstructing rectal cancer. Sexually transmitted diseases as anorectal non-surgical emergencies and some anorectal emergencies in neonates are also discussed. The last part of this review dedicates to the management of early complica...

CONCLUSIONS: The colonoscopy had little value in patients with hematochezia because the most pathologic lesions were located below sigmoid colon. The first choice of diagnosis in patients with hematochezia is sigmoidoscopy. PMID: 26907484 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Symptom attribution in patients was associated with aspects of socio-demography and with the symptom type perceived by the patient as the most important. No significant associations were found between symptom attributions and patient interval. These results have implications for general practice as symptom attributions may prompt patients to present symptoms in a certain way and thereby influence the general practitioner’s assessment of presented symptoms.
