AIM: Prior studies have demonstrated a reoperation rate ranging from 5.8 to 7.6% following colorectal surgery. However, the indications for reoperation have not been extensively evaluated. We aimed to describe the indications for reoperation and associated procedures following colorectal resection. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of all patients undergoing colorectal resection at a single institution from 2003 to 2013. For patients who returned to the operating room, the primary indication was categorized into mutually exclusive categories and all procedures performed within 30 days of the initial operation were indexed...

INTRODUCTION: Esophagocoloplasty represents a useful technique to restore the intestinal continuity after esophagogastrectomy. This technique has been used mainly after esophagogastric caustic injuries. The aim of this review is to assess the role of esophagogastrectomy with esophagocoloplasty for esophageal or gastric neoplasms. METHODS: A systematic literature search was performed using Embase, Medline, Cochrane, and PubMed databases to identify all studies published in the previous 25 years (1991-2016) reporting cases of esophagocoloplasty after esophagogastrectomy for malignancies...

Gastrointestinal bleeding following Roux-en- Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is rare. We report an unusual cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding following RYGB that was complicated by porto- splenic vein thrombosis. A 35- year- old woman was successfully treated by mesocaval surgical shunt for recurrent variceal hemorrhage in the excluded stomach following RYGB.

BACKGROUND: To investigate the predictable value of postprognostic nutritional index (PNI) for patients who are suffering hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) within Milan criteria and hypersplenism with well-preserved liver function after curative resection. METHODS: Patients were divided into two groups: group A (postoperative PNI < 53.05, n = 280) and group B (postoperative PNI ≥ 53.05, n = 109), according to cutoff value of receiver-operating characteristic curve...

BACKGROUND: Unlike other neuroendocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, management of duodenal and periampullary carcinoids remains controversial. We aimed to determine the metastatic potential and optimal choice of therapy for these neoplasms. METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients treated at the Johns Hopkins Hospital between 1996 and 2012 was conducted. Clinicopathologic factors associated with lymph nodal involvement and clinical outcomes were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of patients presumed to have mucinous cysts of the pancreas who were initially selected for radiographic surveillance. METHODS: Patients with a pancreatic cyst and a measured cyst fluid carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) ≥192 ng/mL were included. Patients were stratified by those who underwent initial resection and those who were recommended for radiographic surveillance. The natural history of these two groups was examined...

BACKGROUND: Cirrhosis increases a patient's risk of developing postoperative liver failure (PLF). Liver stiffness (LS), assessed by two-dimensional shear wave elastography (SWE), indicates liver fibrosis with high accuracy. Whether LS is superior to portal hypertension (PHT) in predicting PLF remains to be studied. METHODS: The study enrolled 280 patients who underwent hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma from July 2015 to July 2016. All patients received preoperative assessments for LS, PHT, and serum markers of liver fibrosis in addition to other clinicopathological tests...

BACKGROUND: This study investigated long-term trends in hematological and nutritional parameters after gastrectomy for gastric cancer and evaluated the influence of the reconstruction type on these trends. METHODS: The medical records of 558 patients who underwent curative gastrectomy with standard lymph node dissection for stage I gastric cancer between January 2006 and December 2013 were reviewed. The hematological and nutritional parameters evaluated included hemoglobin, ferritin, vitamin B12, total protein, albumin, total cholesterol, triglyceride, and calcium...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are a heterogeneous group of islet cell-derived neoplasms with a propensity toward hormone production. Among PNETs, proinsulin-secreting tumors (proinsulinomas) are exceedingly rare. The objective of this study is to collect and summarize the existing literature to provide a comprehensive evaluation of this uncommon disease. METHODS: A systematic review was performed to characterize the clinicopathologic features of proinsulinoma...

BACKGROUND: Jaundice as a presenting symptom of gallbladder cancer has traditionally been considered to be a sign of advanced disease, inoperability, and poor outcome. However, recent studies have demonstrated that a small subset of these patients can undergo resection with curative intent. METHODS: Patients with gallbladder cancer managed surgically from 2000 to 2014 in 10 US academic institutions were stratified based on the presence of jaundice at presentation (defined as bilirubin ≥4 mg/ml or requiring preoperative biliary drainage)...

INTRODUCTION: Re-operation is advised for patients with T1b or greater incidental gallbladder cancer (GBCA). The presence of residual disease (RD) impacts resectability, chemotherapy, and survival. This study created a preoperative model to predict RD at re-operation. METHODS: Patients with re-operation for incidental GBCA from 1992-2015 were included. The relationship between pathology data from initial cholecystectomy and RD at re-operation was assessed with logistic regression and classification and regression tree (CART) analysis...

Cindy Kin, M Kate Bundorf
BACKGROUND: Infliximab was approved for ulcerative colitis in 2005 after randomized trials showed it reduced the risk of colectomy. Its effect on population-level surgery rates is unknown. Our aim is to assess the impact of infliximab approval for ulcerative colitis on surgical intervention. METHODS: Retrospective review of a private insurance claims database (2002 to 2013) was performed of patients aged 18-64 diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and with 2 years of follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal surgical site infections (SSIs) contribute to postoperative morbidity, mortality, and resource utilization. Risk factors associated with colorectal SSI are well-documented. However, quality improvement efforts are informed by national data, which may not identify institution-specific risk factors. METHOD: Retrospective cohort study of colorectal surgery patients uses institutional ACS-NSQIP data from 2006 through 2014. ACS-NSQIP data were enhanced with additional variables from medical records...

BACKGROUND: Zenker diverticulum is a rare condition commonly associated with dysphagia and respiratory symptoms/complications, which are alarming especially in the elderly population. Aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of respiratory symptoms/complications and the effects of minimally invasive trans-oral surgery in these patients. METHODS: Consecutive adult patients who underwent trans-oral septum stapling for Zenker diverticulum were included in a retrospective, observational cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (L-IPAA) has been increasingly adopted over the last decade due to short-term patient-related benefits. Several studies have shown L-IPAA to be equivalent to open IPAA in terms of safety and short-term outcomes. However, few L-IPAA studies have examined long-term functional outcomes. We aimed to evaluate the long-term functional outcomes of L-IPAA as compared to open IPAA. METHODS: A previous case-matched cohort study at our institution compared short-term outcomes between L-IPAA and open IPAA from 1998 to 2004...

The altered anatomy in patients after bariatric surgery who have undergone a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass may pose a technical challenge for surgical removal of the pancreatic head. We treat patients with pancreas cancer with multimodality therapy in a neoadjuvant fashion followed by pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). In patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass anatomy, the gastric remnant is preserved and used for pancreaticogastrostomy reconstruction and subsequently drained by the same jejunal limb used for the hepaticojejunostomy...
