Anti-reflux surgery for controlling respiratory symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux disease: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Abstract Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients have a higher prevalence of airway symptoms, such as chronic cough, wheezing, and hoarseness. The therapeutic management of patients with these symptoms is controversial. Therefore, this study aims to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating the efficacy of anti-reflux surgery for controlling respiratory symptoms related to GERD. A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed. Extraction of the data concerning proportions of participants who were not free of respiratory symptoms related to GERD (cough, wheezing, hoarseness) or not subst...

Simple technique to preserve the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve during thyroidectomy: Clinical practicability of an attachable nerve stimulator.
CONCLUSION: The use of metallic surgical instruments with an attachable magnetic nerve stimulator may provide surgeons with real-time feedback on CTM twitching feedback and EBSLN status. Compared to direct EBSLN identification during thyroidectomy, this is a simple, easy, and noninvasive method for EBSLN preservation that is useful, especially for less-experienced surgeons.

Factors influencing the application of transrectal natural orifice specimen extraction performed laparoscopically for colorectal cancer: A retrospective study.
Abstract BACKGROUND: A few factors influence the feasibility of transrectal natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE) surgery for colorectal cancers. However, little is known about the underlying factors of NOSE surgery. METHODS: Consecutive patients with rectal and sigmoid colon cancers treated laparoscopically between January 2014 and April 2017 were enrolled in this study. The transrectal NOSE performed laparoscopically was the first choice of all patients. When NOSE failed, the specimen was removed through a midline abdominal wall incision. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were pe...

BMI-adjusted prognosis of signet ring cell carcinoma in patients undergoing radical gastrectomy for gastric adenocarcinoma.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Compared with other histologic types, signet ring cell gastric carcinoma (SRC) has unique oncological characteristics, and its implication on the prognosis of gastric cancer patients remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prognostic impact of body mass index (BMI) on SRC patients. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed using the clinical records of 3342 patients with SRC or tubular adenocarcinoma who underwent radical gastrectomy between 2000 and 2014. Patients were divided into three groups according to histologic subtype: SRC, well-to-moderately differen...

Trans-lateral decubitus radiograph of the hip: A new view to measure the anteversion of the femoral stem.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Malposition of the femoral stem is a risk factor for dislocation after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Currently, two radiological methods are available for the measurement of stem anteversion. However, one method is not applicable in patients with a stiff hip, and the other one cannot differentiate the anteversion and retroversion of the stem. Therefore, we developed a method to measure the stem anteversion and assessed its reliability as well as validity. METHODS: Trans-lateral decubitus view of the proximal femur was taken with the patient in lateral decubitus position, the hip in extens...
