BACKGROUND: In cases of high ulnar nerve palsy, result of nerve repair in term of intrinsic muscle recovery is unsatisfactory. Distal nerve transfer can diminish the regeneration time and improve the results. But, there was no perfect distal nerve transfer for restoring intrinsic hand function in combined proximal median and ulnar nerve injuries. This cadaveric study aims to evaluate the possibility and feasibility of supinator nerve transfer to motor branch of ulnar nerve (MUN). METHODS: Ten cadaveric upper limbs dissected to identify the location of the supinator branch, anterior interosseous nerve (AIN), and MUN...

BACKGROUND: Delayed splenic vascular injury (DSVI) is traditionally considered a rare, often clinically occult, harbinger of splenic rupture in patients with splenic trauma that are managed conservatively. The purpose of our study was to assess the incidence of DSVI and associated features in patients admitted with blunt splenic trauma and managed nonoperatively. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted over a 4-y time. Patients admitted with blunt splenic trauma, managed no-operatively and with a follow-up contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan study during admission were included...

BACKGROUND: Despite a multitude of evidence-based prediction models and risk factors for postoperative complications after ventral hernia repair, estimating a patient's risk of postoperative complications after ventral hernia repair remains challenging. In an attempt to improve the preoperative assessment of complex hernia patients, some studies have examined pulmonary changes after hernia repair hypothesizing that large hernias lead to pulmonary changes and increased pulmonary complication rates...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal carcinomatosis represents widespread metastatic disease throughout the abdomen and/or pelvis. Cytoreductive surgery/hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC) improves the overall survival compared to standard therapy alone. The role palliative care (PC) plays however, remains poorly studied among these patients. METHODS: Patients who had previously undergone HIPEC and who underwent an inpatient admission from 7/1/2013 to 6/30/2014 were identified to determine which patients were referred for inpatient or outpatient palliative consultation...

BACKGROUND: Intravenous administration of ulinastatin (UTI), a broad spectral protease inhibitor, has been used on an experimental basis with severe sepsis patients in Asia. However, the effects of intraintestinal administration of UTI on intestinal and multiple organ damage in sepsis have not been reported. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, we established a sepsis model in rats using cecal ligation and puncture and compared the effects of intraintestinal administration of UTI through an artificial fistula of duodenum and intraperitoneal administration of UTI on the pathophysiological changes of sepsis...

BACKGROUND: In Japan, it has been reported that an increase in atmospheric pressure is associated with a higher incidence of acute appendicitis. The aim of this epidemiologic study was to investigate the association between climatic elements and the incidence of acute appendicitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-crossover design was used in the present study. Two wk before diagnosis was used for the target period. The same 2-wk period, but 1, 2, and 3 y before diagnosis, was used for the control period...

BACKGROUND: Liver resection or partial hepatectomy (PH) is still the most commonly used therapeutic option for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) at present. However, the impaired regenerative ability induced by the accompanied liver cirrhosis is an important risk factor of posthepatectomy liver failure, and posthepatectomy liver failure is a feared complication that accounts for up to 75% of mortality after extensive liver resection. MicroRNA(miR)-203 is a tumor suppressor of HCC and may act as a positive intermediary in A20-enhanced interleukin (IL-6)/signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) pro-proliferative signals, which may promote liver regeneration after PH...

BACKGROUND: The role of collateral artery circulation in the lower limb is under debate but clinically relevant, particularly when using covered stents for occlusive disease. Covered stents seem to outperform nitinol stents in extensive disease, but collaterals could be essential in case of acute thrombosis. In the present study, we describe the collateral pathways of the deep and superficial femoral artery (DFA, SFA) and the popliteal artery (PA), observed in human cadavers. METHODS: Ten fresh frozen cadaver legs were selected...

BACKGROUND: Severe muscle mass depletion, sarcopenia, has been shown to be associated with poor operative outcomes. However, its impact on emergency abdominal operations remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between low muscle mass (LMM) and outcomes after emergency operations for acute diverticulitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients ≥18 y requiring an emergency operation for acute diverticulitis between January 2007 and September 2014 were included...

BACKGROUND: Effectiveness of protein-bound polysaccharide K (PSK) during adjuvant chemotherapy in gastric cancer patients expressing programmed death-1 ligand 1 (PD-L1) has not been investigated. Investigating this might help in triaging candidates eligible to immunochemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 918 patients with stages II and III gastric cancer, undergoing curative gastrectomy, and receiving adjuvant chemotherapy were enrolled in a prospective database, and the patients were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer is a common cancer with a poor prognosis. Chemokines play important roles in the tumor microenvironments to support tumor growth and metastasis. The effects of C-C motif chemokine ligand 22 (CCL22) in gastric cancer remain unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 1, 2014 and April 31, 2014, a total of 298 gastric cancer patients were recruited to this study. Circulating concentrations of CCL22 were measured in gastric cancer patients before surgery, at discharged and during follow-up visits...

BACKGROUND: In 2011, road traffic injury-associated fatalities among motorized two-wheeler (MTW) pillion riders (backseat two-wheeler passengers) rose 30% in Karachi. Despite mandatory helmet laws, helmet use fell 20% the same year. This study aims to identify opinions of female pillions on helmet usage and whether various forms of media influence their self-perception. METHODS: Trained surveyors, using a survey tool used in similar studies in South Asia, conducted random, man-on-the-street interviews of 400 women in four areas of Karachi...

BACKGROUND: Liver organoids show potential for development as a tissue replacement therapy for patients with end-stage liver disease, but efficient methods for introducing organoids into host livers have not been established. In this study, we aimed to develop a surgical technique to implant hepatic organoids into the liver and assess their engraftment. METHODS: Donor hepatocytes were isolated from ROSA26 C57BL/6 mice, so that engrafted cells, when implanted into wild-type mice, could be easily identified by X-gal staining...
