OBJECTIVE: The aim of the current study was to assess symptomatic outcome and need for surgical reintervention for patients identified with pathological esophageal acid exposure by routine postoperative 24-hour pH-monitoring. BACKGROUND: Although laparoscopic fundoplication is associated with excellent short- and midterm results, recurrent symptoms pose an important challenge. Postoperative pH-monitoring is considered the "gold standard" for diagnosing recurrent GERD and frequently used for routine postoperative follow up...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols across noncolorectal abdominal surgical procedures. BACKGROUND: ERAS programs have been studied extensively in colorectal surgery and adopted at many centers. Several studies testing such protocols have shown promising results in improving postoperative outcomes across various surgical procedures. However, surgeons performing major abdominal procedures have been slower to adopt these ERAS protocols...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to elucidate the impact of sarcopenia in elderly patients with esophageal cancer on postoperative complications and long-term survival after surgery for esophageal cancer. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Sarcopenia, defined as loss of skeletal muscle mass with age, has been identified as a poor prognostic factor for malignancies. This retrospective study investigated the effect of sarcopenia on surgical outcomes among young and elderly patients with esophageal cancer...

OBJECTIVE: Assessment of long-term comprehensive outcome of multimodality treatment of bile duct injury (BDI) in terms of morbidity, mortality, quality of life (QoL), survival, and work related limitations. BACKGROUND: The impact of BDI on work ability is scarcely investigated. METHODS: BDI patients referred to a tertiary center after BDI were included (n = 800). QoL and work related limitations (HLQ) were compared with 175 control patients after uncomplicated laparoscopic cholecystectomy...

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the incidence of adhesive postoperative bowel obstruction (PBO) after colon cancer surgery and its risk factors using nationwide claim data. BACKGROUND: PBO has a significant impact on quality of life and medical costs after colectomy, though most of the literature consists of single-institution analyses. METHODS: Data from 24,645 patients who underwent regional colectomy for colon cancer from 2010 to 2012 and had at least 3 years of follow up were obtained from the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service database...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of intrasphincteric injections of autologous myoblasts (AMs) in fecal incontinence (FI) in a controlled study. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Adult stem cell therapy is expected to definitively cure FI by regenerating damaged sphincter. Preclinical data and results of open-label trials suggest that myoblast therapy may represent a noninvasive treatment option. METHODS: We conducted a phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of intrasphincteric injections of AM in 24 patients...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the safety of radical resection for retroperitoneal sarcoma (RPS). BACKGROUND: The surgical management of RPS frequently involves complex multivisceral resection. Improved oncologic outcomes have been demonstrated with this approach compared to marginal excision, but the safety of radical resection has not been shown in a large study population. METHODS: The Transatlantic Retroperitoneal Sarcoma Working Group (TARPSWG) is an international collaborative of sarcoma centers...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize the longitudinal course of the systemic inflammatory response (SIR) throughout the perioperative period. To investigate whether postoperative changes in the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) or lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) when compared with preoperative levels ('conversion') are associated with survival differences in colorectal cancer patients undergoing resection. BACKGROUND: Recent evidence suggests that preoperative measurements of markers of the SIR including the NLR and LMR are prognostic...

OBJECTIVE: It was hypothesized that patient survival improves with increasing surgeon age up to an age where it then decreases. BACKGROUND: Experience, physical and psychological abilities required for esophagectomy may change with increasing surgeon age. METHODS: This population-based cohort study included all patients having undergone esophagectomy for esophageal cancer in Sweden in 1987 to 2010, with follow-up until 2016. Risk-adjusted cumulative sum (RA-CUSUM) analysis was performed to estimate the relation between surgeon age and 90-day mortality, all-cause, and disease-specific 5-year mortality...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize the economic hardship for uninsured patients admitted for trauma using catastrophic health expenditure (CHE) risk. BACKGROUND: Medical debts are the greatest cause of bankruptcies in the United States. Injuries are often unpredictable, expensive to treat, and disproportionally affect uninsured patients. Current measures of economic hardship are insufficient and exclude those at greatest risk. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review, using data from the 2007-2011 Nationwide Inpatient Samples of all uninsured nonelderly adults (18-64 yrs) admitted with primary diagnoses of trauma...
