This study was conducted to identify the predictors for conversion cholecystectomy (CC) for AC.MethodsThe subjects of this study were 395 patients who underwent emergency surgery for AC between 2011 and 2019. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to establish the significance of the risk factors for CC in patients with grades II and III AC.ResultsThere were 162 TG18 GII and GIII patients in the LC group and 31 in the CC group. Univariate analysis revealed significant differences in performance status (p = 0.039), C-reactive protein levels (p = 0.016), albumin levels (p = &t...

Authors: Larose LD, Vroman PJ, Musick SR, Beauvais AA Abstract A 37-year-old active duty male Air Force instructor pilot, with no prior medical history, was found unresponsive at his home after awakening with symptoms of altered mental status when the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) was called. The patient was found to be hypoglycemic with a glucose of 37 mg/dL. The patient recovered after administration of a dextrose bolus. Further investigation revealed that over the last several years, the patient exhibited symptoms of lightheadedness and tremors if fasted greater than 3 hours. Further clinical workup ...

Authors: Ko KJ, Lee KS Abstract Abdominal sacrocolpopexy is the gold-standard treatment for apical compartment prolapse, as it is more effective and durable than the transvaginal approach. In the current era of minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy techniques have been described, but have not gained popularity due to their complexity and steep learning curves. To overcome this problem, robotic sacrocolpopexy was introduced, and has shown equivalent outcomes and safety compared to open and laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy based on findings that have been accumulated over 15 years.

Authors: Manabe Y, Uojima H, Hidaka H, Shao X, Iwasaki S, Wada N, Kubota K, Tanaka Y, Nakazawa T, Shibuya A, Masaaki I, Kumamoto Y, Kaizu T, Koizumi W Abstract Abdominal ultrasound in a 50-year-old Japanese man revealed a cystic lesion on the caudate lobe of the liver. Four-month follow-up imaging showed a rapid increase in the size of the cystic lesion. The patient underwent laparoscopic partial hepatectomy because of a suspicion and perceived risk that the lesion might be malignant. The initial histological diagnosis was a hepatic cyst. Eleven months later, computed tomography showed a giant cystic lesion in the ...
To examine the fidelity of our model of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (LIHR) in boys and evaluate its value in resident training programs and the learning of basic laparoscopy skills.
ConclusionsBony pelvic measurements may predict surgical difficulty during TME, however, use of different indicators of difficulty limit comparison between studies. Early data suggest MRI soft tissue measurements may predict surgical difficulty and warrants further investigation.
