A late sequelae of diabetes is the diabetic foot syndrome (DFS), the prevalence of which is greatly increasing. It comprises all alterations of the foot as a result of diabetic polyneuropathy as well as microvascular and macrovascular (peripheral arterial occlusive disease, PAOD) alterations. Many of the ca. 250,000 newly diagnosed diabetic foot ulcers per year become chronic wounds. Despite intensive efforts for prevention, early diagnosis and adequate wound care, ca. 13,000 persons with diabetes undergo major...

CONCLUSION: Even during the learning curve the known advantages of laparoscopic liver surgery seem to be confirmed also for robot-assisted liver surgery. According to the center's own experience, minimally invasive liver surgery will in future be meaningfully supplemented by robotic technology. In particular, technically highly complex resections with reconstruction are made possible. PMID: 33095282 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Der Chirurg)

Abstract The extensor tendon apparatus is a network consisting of two different systems, an intrinsic and an extrinsic system, which are subdivided into eight different zones. Isolated injuries in zones 1 and 2 can be treated nonoperatively, whereas injuries in zones 3-8 usually require surgical treatment. A decision on the suture technique, suture material and postoperative follow-up care is made depending on the zone of the injury. The concomitant injuries of joints, bones, nerves and vessels must be taken into consideration and treated. The outcome of a tendon injury depends on the loca...

Nearly all types of pancreatic surgery have now been performed robotically and especially standardized resections, such as distal pancreatectomy (RDP) and partial pancreatoduodenectomy (RPD) have gained importance despite a potentially long learning curve and high associated procedural costs. The present review article summarizes the available literature and evidence on the respective procedures focused on their use for indications of malignancy...

Abstract Despite the development and introduction of new pharmaceutical approaches for Crohn's disease, the treatment of these patients still remains a major clinical challenge due to the heterogeneity in the course, degree of inflammation and localization. Over the last decade surgery was mainly reserved for the treatment of complications during the long course of Crohn's disease; however, due to new evidence-based knowledge, primary surgical resection in patients suffering from isolated Crohn's disease of the terminal ileum represents an equally effective alternative to medicinal antibody-based treatment.

[How often is a chest tube needed following thoracic trauma in the severely injured-and when is more needed? : Data from a Swiss trauma center for planning of resources and surgical training].
CONCLUSION: In the observational period only 1% of all relevant thoracic injuries required emergency thoracic surgical care beyond a pleural drainage. Given this low rate, for efficiency and cost reasons a thoracic surgery on-call service appears to be appropriate and compulsory attendance is not needed; however, the capability to insert a thoracic drainage must be appropriately assured by surgical training. In view of the number of cases observed per trainee, the minimum number of interventions required according to specialty training regulations should be well achievable.

Based on phase III clinical studies, four multi-kinase inhibitors (MKI) are approved for the treatment of progressive thyroid cancer in Germany. The indications for starting systemic treatment remain a challenge as the diseases can be stable and asymptomatic over long periods of time. In contrast, MKI treatment, which slows the disease progression but is not curative, is often associated with side effects that can impair quality of life. For this reason, an a...

This article reports the case of a patient with a hot thyroid nodule, which was resected and turned out to be follicular thyroid cancer. In this context it appears to be necessary to critically question thermal ablation as an alternative treatment option for thyroid nodules, particularly since the current recommendations are weak with low or even very low evidence. Radioiodine or surgery remains the first-line treatment for hot and hyperfunctioning thyroid nodules but malignancy in a hot thyroid nodule also needs to be considered.

[Penetrating abdominal trauma].
Abstract The management of patients with penetrating abdominal trauma has significantly changed in recent years. While exploratory laparotomy was the gold standard in Germany in all patients up to the 1970s, selective nonoperative management (SNOM) is increasingly being discussed in hemodynamically stable patients without pathological findings in computed tomography (CT) scan or extended focussed assessment with sonography for trauma (eFAST). A standard algorithm taking a balance between invasiveness, patient safety and the use of resources into account has still to be implemented in Germany. The present...

CONCLUSION: A consistent treatment with great effort is required for septic complications of the IPOM procedure. The interventions are often associated with extensive adhesiolysis and intestinal resection. Therefore, the indications for intraperitoneal mesh implantation should be handled with caution and an alternative surgical procedure should be considered. There are still special cases, such as hernias with very large abdominal wall defects in which the IPOM method is a suitable treatment option for tension-free reconstruction.

Despite intense efforts by all parties involved up to the amendment of the German Transplantation Act, the lack of suitable donor organs was still one of the limiting factors of this therapeutic procedure. One way out of this problem is to make so-called marginal organs usable, e.g. with the help of machine perfusion or by utilizing living liver donation, which are used in some countries for more than 90% of organ donations. In general, there is no difference in the indications for ...

Abstract Cervical lymphadenectomy in thyroid cancer is a frequent intervention with around 20,000 operations per year in Germany. Some of the complications are identical with those in thyroid surgery, such as recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy and hypoparathyroidism as well as postoperative bleeding and wound infection. Specific complications of lateral lymphadenectomy are lesions of the accessory, phrenic and hypoglossal nerves, the sympathetic trunk and cervical plexus as well as lesions of the salivary glands and lymphatic vessels, in particular the thoracic duct. Most of these complications are rare with a&n...

CONCLUSION: Operations below the currently valid minimum quantity threshold should no longer be carried out. There are many indications that the minimum quantity in Germany should be raised to ≥20 resections/year/hospital in order to comprehensively improve the quality. Prehabilitation programs with endurance, strength and intensive breathing training as well as nutritional therapy improve patient outcome. The current treatment of esophageal cancer is stage-dependent and incorporates endoscopic resection of (sub)mucosal low-risk tumors (T1m1-3 or T1sm1 low risk), primary esophagectomy of submucosal high-risk tumors (T1a...

Abstract Advanced thyroid carcinomas with infiltration of the aerodigestive tract are rare but are responsible for approximately 50% of the tumor-specific mortality. Due to impending and frequently life-threatening local complications and in the absence of promising therapeutic alternatives, a resection in curative or palliative intention is indicated if the local tumor is resectable.
