Outcomes of Pancreatic Surgery in Patients Older than 70 Years
Conclusions Age should not be a limiting factor for pancreatic resections. The elderly have similar results as younger patients and their increased perioperative mortality is due to the presence of important associated comorbidities rather than age as an independent risk factor.

Results of Transanal Endorrectal Descent in Hirschprung's Disease
Conclusions TED is the surgery of choice for patients with HD. The majority can be handled by preoperative “nursing” without colostomy. The diagnostic tests of choice are manometry with suction biopsy. No significant correlation was found between enterocolitis and length of aganglionic segment, although we observed a drastic reduction of postoperative enterocolitis, since the introduction of technical changes, such as the use of postoperative rectal tubes and the posterior section of the cuff muscles.
