BACKGROUND: The risk of gallstone disease necessitating cholecystectomy after ileal resection (IR) in Crohn's disease (CD) patients is not well established. We studied the incidence, cumulative and relative risk of cholecystectomy after IR in CD patients, and associated risk factors. METHODS: CD patients with a first IR between 1991 and 2015 were identified in PALGA, a nationwide pathology database in the Netherlands. Details on subsequent cholecystectomy and IR were recorded...

BACKGROUND: Colovesical fistula (CVF) is an uncommon complication of diverticulitis. Substantial heterogeneity exists in the perioperative management of this condition. We seek to evaluate the role of bladder leak testing, closed suction drainage, prolonged bladder catheter usage, and routine postoperative cystogram in the management of CVF. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective study from a single academic health center investigation patients undergoing operation for diverticular CVF from 2005 to 2015 (n = 89)...

BACKGROUND: Recent data illustrates improved outcomes when adhering to early drain removal following pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). This study aims to explore the potential benefits of expanding the timeframe for early drain removal. METHODS: Six hundred forty PDs were originally managed by selective drain placement and early removal. Outcomes were reappraised in the framework of a novel proposal; intraoperative drains were omitted based on a low-risk profile (Fistula Risk Score 0-2), followed by drain removal at PODs 1, 3, and 5 if drain fluid amylase (DFA) fell below specific cutoffs based on optimized negative predictive values (NPV) for clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula (CR-POPF)...

BACKGROUND: Injuries to segmental or aberrant bile ducts are encountered less commonly than their major bile duct counterparts and present a unique diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, since the nature of this injury involves a transected bile duct that loses its communication with the main ductal system. In this systematic review, we aim to pool available data on this particular type of biliary injury in an effort to outline available diagnostic and therapeutic modalities and evaluate their efficacy...

BACKGROUND: Despite scientific evidence of the safety, efficacy, and in some cases superiority of minimally invasive surgery in hepato-pancreato-biliary procedures, there are scarce publications about bile duct repairs. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of robotic-assisted surgery versus laparoscopic surgery on bile duct repair in patients with post-cholecystectomy bile duct injury. METHODS: This is a retrospective comparative study of our prospectively collected database of patients with bile duct injury who underwent robotic or laparoscopic hepaticojejunostomy...

BACKGROUND: Passage of flatus after abdominal surgery signals resolution of physiological postoperative ileus (POI) and often, particularly after complex open surgeries, serves as the trigger to initiate oral feeding. To date, there is no objective tool that can predict time to flatus allowing for timely feeding and optimizing recovery. In an open, prospective study, we examine the use of a noninvasive wireless patch system that measures electrical activity from gastrointestinal smooth muscles in predicting time to first flatus...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous cholecystostomy is frequently used as a treatment option for acute calculous cholecystitis in patients unfit for surgery. There is sparse evidence on the long-term impact of cholecystostomy on gallstone-related morbidity and mortality in patients with acute calculous cholecystitis. This study describes the long-term outcome of acute calculous cholecystitis following percutaneous cholecystostomy compared to conservative treatment. METHODS: This was a cohort study of patients admitted at our institution from 2006 to 2015 with acute calculous cholecystitis without early or delayed cholecystectomy...

BACKGROUND: The impact of minimally invasive surgery on the short-term outcomes of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) undergoing liver resection remains poorly defined. METHODS: The ACS-NSQIP-targeted hepatectomy database was used to identify patients who underwent liver resection for HCC during 2014-2016. A 1:1 propensity score matching was created between patients who underwent open (OLR) vs. minimally invasive liver resection (MILR) based on age, ASA score, liver resection type, liver texture, and stage of disease...

Shu Shen, Yiwen Qiu, Xianwei Yang, Wentao Wang
BACKGROUND: The successful application of ex vivo liver resection and autotransplantation (ERAT) has gained widespread attention for the treatment of end-stage hepatic alveolar echinococcosis, which is considered to be unresectable by conventional methods due to extensive invasion of the extra- and intrahepatic vasculature. However, data on remnant liver volume (RLV) are limited, and the safe volume limit of remnant liver is still unclear. METHODS: To determine the effect of liver volume in the technically developed era, we investigated the impact of the remnant liver-to-standard liver volume ratio (RLV/SLV) on the outcomes of ERAT...

BACKGROUND: The optimal dose of neoadjuvant radiation for locally advanced, resectable esophageal cancer remains controversial in the absence of randomized clinical trials, with conventional practice favoring the use of 50.4 vs. 41.4 Gy. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of adults with non-metastatic esophageal cancer in the National Cancer Database (2004-2015) treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy. Outcomes were compared between patients undergoing 41.4, 45, or 50...

PURPOSE: This study has aimed to evaluate the effects of surgery on physical activity (PA), quality of life (QoL), and disease-specific health status, by analyzing the differences between sphincter-preserving surgery (low anterior resection (LAR)) and abdominoperineal resection (APR) among rectal cancer survivors. METHODS: Individuals who were diagnosed with rectal cancer and who underwent an APR or a LAR between 2000 and 2009 were included. The different questionnaires on QoL, disease-specific health status, and physical activity began their surveys in 2010...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leak after gastroesophageal surgery is a life-threatening complication. Self-expanding metal stent (SEMS) implantation or endoscopic vacuum therapy (EVT) have been established as alternatives to reoperation. This study compares the outcome of both interventions for anastomotic leak clinical management. METHODS: In this retrospective study, we identified all patients who received SEMS or EVT for anastomotic leaks after oncological gastroesophageal surgery between January 2007 and December 2016...

BACKGROUND: Assessments of surgical quality should consider both surgeon and patient perspectives simultaneously. Focusing on patients undergoing major gastrointestinal cancer surgery, we sought to characterize hospitals, and their patients, on both these axes of quality. METHODS: Using the American College of Surgeons' National Surgical Quality Improvement Program registry, hospitals were profiled on a risk-adjusted composite measure of death or serious morbidity (DSM) generated from patients who underwent colectomy, esophagectomy, hepatectomy, pancreatectomy, or proctectomy for cancer between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016...

PURPOSE: To identify available clinical prediction rules (CPRs) and investigate their ability to rule out appendicitis in children presenting with abdominal pain at the emergency department, and accordingly select CPRs that could be useful in a future prospective cohort study. METHODS: A literature search was conducted to identify available CPRs. These were subsequently tested in a historical cohort from a general teaching hospital, comprising all children (< 18 years) that visited the emergency department between 2012 and 2015 with abdominal pain...

BACKGROUND: Splenectomy during total gastrectomy increases operative morbidity (Nakata et al. in Surgical endoscopy 7:1817-1822, 2015). Establishing a safe approach to laparoscopic splenectomy is one of the most urgent issues in the treatment of proximal advanced gastric cancer, which invades to the greater curvature (Kawamura et al. in Gastric Cancer 3:662-668, 2015). We developed a novel three-step procedure for splenectomy during laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG). METHODS: Splenectomy consisted of three steps...

BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the deadliest malignancies worldwide due to the lack of effective treatments. Chemoprevention in high-risk patients is a promising, alternative strategy. In this study, pioglitazone was investigated for its ability to prevent hepatocarcinogenesis in two rodent models of cirrhosis. METHODS: In the first model, male Wistar rats were given repeated, low-dose injections of diethylnitrosamine (DEN) to accurately recapitulate the progression of fibrosis to cirrhosis and HCC...
