Suture and Fixation of the Transversalis Fascia during Robotic-Assisted Transabdominal Preperitoneal Hernia Repair to Prevent Seroma Formation after Direct Inguinal Hernia Repair.
Conclusions. In the treatment of direct inguinal hernia with R-TAPP, suturing and anchoring the transversalis fascia to the Cooper ligament are safe, feasible and recommendable in order to prevent postoperative seromas. PMID: 32936065 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
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
Conclusions: The study ’s findings support the efficacy of tube weaning based on the published “Graz model of tube weaning” for children born with EA/TEF and indicate the necessity of specialized tube weaning programs for these patients.What is Known:• Children with esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula often suffer from feeding problems and tube dependency.• Different tube weaning programs and outcomes have been published, but not specifically for children with EA.What is New:• Evaluation of a large sample of children referred for tube weaning after EA repair.• Most children wi...

Authors: Ebrahimi-Zadehlou P, Najafpour A, Mohammadi R Abstract PURPOSE: It is compulsory to make a tension-free, end-to-end repair in transected injuries. However, when it comes to longer defects, placement of an autograft or nerve conduits is required. The present study was designed to assess regenerative potential of silymarin nanoparticles loaded into chitosan conduit on peripheral nerve regeneration in a transected sciatic nerve model in rat. METHODS: In NML group left sciatic nerve was exposed through a gluteal muscle incision and after careful hemostasis skin was closed. In TSC group left sciatic nerve w...

CONCLUSIONS: More than half of the iIONP patients had an enhanced oculomotor nerve in MRI. A few of them also had elevated CSF IgG synthesis rate, but no further evidence for inflammation was found. The administration of steroids seemed to have no benefit other than increasing the blood glucose level. PMID: 33029972 [PubMed]
AbstractBackgroundTo repair a blow-out fracture, the endonasal approach is indicated when the center of the fracture occurs in the orbital floor medial to the infraorbital nerve, or when the orbital tissue is herniated inwards; additionally, the combined endonasal and transmaxillary approach is indicated for fractures of the anterior and lateral parts of the orbital floor.Method and conclusionThe use of endoscopic modified medial maxillectomy and special instruments enabled the surgeon to repair an outwardly herniated blow-out fracture by the endonasal approach alone, despite the center of the fracture being in the orbital...
