Association between bacterial resistance profile and the development of intra-abdominal abscesses in pediatric patients with perforated appendicitis: cohort study
ConclusionE. coli was the most commonly isolated microorganism, with a low rate of ESBL-producing isolates. No association between resistance and risk of postoperative intra-abdominal abscess was found. However, it was identified that being a high-risk patient on admission was associated with this complication.Type of studyPrognosis study.Level of evidenceLevel I.

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (LIHR): the benefit of the double stitch in the largest single-center experience
ConclusionThis is the largest single-center reported series of LIHR. LIHR is safe at any age, the risk of recurrence is low, and can be corrected by re-laparoscopy. Use of a Z-stitch or second purse string is associated with a significantly lower rate of recurrence. (Source: Pediatric Surgery International)

Can we preserve the necrotic testis caused by incarcerated inguinal hernia in infants under 3  months?
ConclusionPreserving the necrotic testis may allow it to survive without impacting the contralateral testis. Therefore, a more conservative approach should be considered for orchiectomy when dealing with testicular necrosis caused by incarcerated inguinal hernias in infants.

Prospective evaluation of common hepatic duct histopathology at the time of choledochal cyst excision ranging from children to adults
ConclusionsHigh DMR, high IS, and evidence of dysplasia in pediatric CC suggest children are at risk for serious sequelae best managed by precise histopathology, protocolized follow-up, and awareness that premalignant histopathology can arise in infancy. (Source: Pediatric Surgery International)
