#6
Andrei M Beliaev, Neville Angelo, Michael Booth, Colleen Bergin
BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of acute cholecystitis (AC) is frequently associated with an increase in white cell count (WCC) and C-reactive protein (CRP). However, one or both of these inflammatory biomarkers can be normal in AC. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the discriminative powers of the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) with WCC and CRP in diagnosing AC. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study. For more than a period of 5 y, 1959 patients were identified from the cholecystectomy Registry...

BACKGROUND: Informed consent is a fundamental requirement of any invasive procedure. Failure to obtain appropriate and informed consent may result in unwanted or unnecessary procedures, as well as financial penalty in case of litigation. The aim of this study was to identify key constructs of the consent process which might be used to determine the performance of clinicians taking informed consent in surgery. METHODS: A multimodal methodology was used. A systematic review was conducted in accordance with PRISMA guidelines to identify evidence-based components of the consent process...

BACKGROUND: The recurrence of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) beyond the Milan criteria after liver resection (LR) is common. This study aimed to clarify whether LR plus postoperative adjuvant transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) could improve the outcomes of patients with HCC beyond the Milan criteria after LR. METHODS: A total of 754 consecutive patients with HCC beyond the Milan criteria who received LR alone (n = 459) or LR + TACE (n = 295) were included...

BACKGROUND: We describe our novel technique of inserting pancreaticogastrostomy (IPG) after pancreaticoduodenectomy. In our technique, the seromuscular and mucosal layers of the posterior gastric wall are separated to create a mucosal pouch. A duct-to-mucosa anastomosis is performed through a small incision in the mucosal layer. An inner suture at the seromuscular-mucosal margin incorporating the pancreatic parenchyma and an outer suture on the exterior margin of the seromuscular layer to wrap the pouch around the pancreas are placed to complete the IPG...

BACKGROUND: To describe a new design for an extended lateral thoracic artery (LTA) perforator flap and investigate its anatomical, dynamic, and potential territories. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To assess vascular territories, rats were randomized according to LTA perforator flap type into the surgical groups A, hemidorsal island flap; B, entire dorsal island flap; and C, reduced-size dorsal island flap. RESULTS: On postsurgical day 7, the surviving flap areas were 95%, 92%, and 89% in groups A, B, and C, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Cancer patients are at increased risk for postoperative sepsis. However, studies addressing the issue are lacking. We sought to identify preoperative and intraoperative predictors of 30-d sepsis after major cancer surgery (MCS) and derive a postoperative sepsis risk stratification tool. METHODS: Patients undergoing one of nine MCSs (gastrointestinal, urological, gynecologic, or pulmonary) were identified within the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (2005-2011, n = 69,169)...

BACKGROUND: Readmission rates after surgical procedures are viewed as a marker of quality of care and as a driver to improve outcomes in the United Kingdom, they are not remunerated. However, readmissions are not wholly avoidable. The aim of this study was to develop a regional overview of readmissions to determine the proportion that might be avoidable and to examine predictors of readmissions at a unit level. METHODS: We undertook a prospective multicenter audit of readmissions following National Health Service funded general surgical procedures in five National Health Service hospitals and three independent sector providers over a 2-wk period...

BACKGROUND: Extracellular metabolic acidosis of mineral origin is commonly associated with plasma hyperkalemia. Nevertheless, in previous experiments, animals subjected to acute metabolic acidosis induced by normovolemic hemodilution using a colloidal volume replacement solution containing succinylated gelatin (gelafundin), developed a hypokalemic state with concomitant marked increases in diuresis and renal potassium excretion. In the present study, the succinylated gelatin's impact on diuresis and consequently potassium excretion was studied...

BACKGROUND: The prognostic nutritional index (PNI) is a useful parameter indicating the immune and nutritional status of cancer patients; this study investigated the prognostic value of the PNI in advanced gastric cancer patients treated with preoperative chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 117 advanced gastric cancer patients who met the inclusion criteria for preoperative chemotherapy and underwent surgical resection from July 2004 to December 2011...

BACKGROUND: As a newly developed treatment, preoperative pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) has been studied in depth. However, few studies have assessed the relationship between advanced age and a shorter term intensive pattern of preoperative PR in patients with lung cancer (LC) and especially those patients waiting for therapeutic LC surgeries. This study investigated short-term preoperative PR combined with inspiratory muscle training (IMT) and aerobic endurance training in elderly patients scheduled to undergo LC lobectomy...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study is to quantify the impact of the weight of radiation protection lead aprons on the discomfort and the fatigue of the medical staff within an operating room of interventional gastroenterology. To quantify this fatigue, we analyzed variations of the physiological parameters, including heart rate, blood pressure, and cutaneous temperature; we compared two situations: the first within the classic endoscopy department (without apron) and the second within the operating room with apron...

BACKGROUND: Although central venous access for port placement is common and relatively safe, complications and poor resource utilization occur. We hypothesized that despite the simplicity of port placement, surgeon and/or resident performance-rather than technique-is associated with clinical outcomes and operating room efficiency. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Medical records of 1200 patients who underwent port placement between 2012 and 2015 at our institution were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Secure vessel occlusion is critical to the success of all surgical and interventional procedures. The purpose of this study was to compare in vivo the use of the Amsel Vessel Occluder (AVO), a novel occlusion clip device for secure blood vessel closure, with one of the many commercially available hemoclips, the Ligaclip, in the porcine model. METHODS: Vessel closure of arteries and veins was performed on 10 swine to compare the ease of use, safety, and efficacy of the AVO with the Ligaclip as well as the tissue response at 7 and 30 d...

#19
Eric Chu, Shyla Saini, Tiegang Liu, James Yoo
BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel disease is characterized by episodic intestinal injury and repair. Myofibroblasts are gastrointestinal tract stromal cells that regulate the reparative process and are known targets of inflammatory mediators including bradykinin (BK). However, the mechanisms through which inflammation regulates myofibroblast-induced wound healing remain incompletely understood. Here, we demonstrate, for the first time, that BK stimulates myofibroblast migration through protein kinase D (PKD)-mediated activation of the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and heat shock protein 27 (Hsp27) pathways...

BACKGROUND: Few opportunities exist for early learners to engage in authentic roles on health care teams. In a geriatric optimization clinic for frail high-risk surgical patients, first-year medical and nurse practitioner students were integrated into an interprofessional team as health coaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Frail surgical patients with planned operations were referred to a new preoperative optimization clinic to see a geriatrician, occupational, and physical therapists and a nutritionist...
