BACKGROUND: Injuries contribute to a substantial proportion of the burden of disease in Kenya. Trauma registries can be a very useful source of data to understand patterns of injuries and serve to provide information about potential improvements in the care of injured patients. In Kenya, health facility-based injury data has been largely administrative. Our aim was to develop and implement a prospective trauma registry at the largest trauma hospital in Kenya, the Kenyatta National Hospital, and to understand the nature of injuries presenting to the hospital, their treatment and care, and their outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Past studies identify an association between provider volume and outcomes, but less is known about the volume-cost relationship for cancer surgery. We analyze the volume-cost relationship for 6 cancer operations and explore whether it is influenced by the occurrence of complications and/or utilization of processes of care. METHODS: Medicare hospital and inpatient claims for the years 2005 through 2009 were analyzed for 6 cancer resections: colectomy, rectal resection, pulmonary lobectomy, pneumonectomy, esophagectomy, and pancreatic resection...

BACKGROUND: Occasionally, right hepatectomy, rather than parenchyma-preserving hepatectomy, has been performed for solitary small colorectal liver metastasis. The relative oncologic benefits of parenchyma-preserving hepatectomy and right hepatectomy are unclear. This study compared the outcomes of patients with solitary small colorectal liver metastasis in the right liver who underwent parenchyma-preserving hepatectomy and those who underwent right hepatectomy. METHODS: The study population consisted of a multicentric cohort of 21,072 patients operated for colorectal liver metastasis between 2000 and 2015 whose data were collected in the LiverMetSurvey registry...

BACKGROUND: Emergency medical services are important to the functioning of health systems, but these services tend to be neglected in low- and middle-income countries, such as India. In recent years, several models of pre-hospital emergency medical services have emerged in India. Research on these models holds important lessons for existing and future emergency medical service programs in low- and middle-income countries. Our objective was to provide a comprehensive description of the organizational structure and service delivery model of a public-private partnership in the southern Indian state of Karnataka, GVK Emergency Management and Research Institute, with a particular focus on its operations in Bengaluru...

BACKGROUND: In rectal cancer, anastomotic leakage was reported to have a negative impact on both short- and long-term outcomes. However, there is limited data on the impact of anastomotic leakage on oncologic outcomes in patients with colon cancer. We aimed to evaluate the impact of anastomotic leakage on disease recurrence and long-term survival after curative resection of colon cancer. METHODS: This multicenter, retrospective cohort study of 4,919 consecutive patients utilized data from the Japanese Society for Cancer of the Colon and Rectum...

BACKGROUND: Temporary portal vein embolization may be a safe alternative to permanent portal vein embolization. Such a new approach could be applied in living-related liver transplantation to increase graft volume before procurement. The impact of temporary portal vein embolization on occluded liver after recanalization, however, has never been assessed. Using a mouse model of temporary portal vein embolization, we investigated (1) the efficiency of temporary portal vein embolization in inducing nonoccluded liver hypertrophy and (2) the regeneration potential and functional recovery of embolized liver after recanalization...

BACKGROUND: While previous studies have demonstrated short-term efficacy of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in candidates awaiting renal transplantation, the combination of morbid obesity and end-stage renal disease presents unique challenges to perioperative care. We demonstrate how increasing experience and the development of postoperative care guidelines can improve outcomes in this high-risk population. METHODS: Single-center medical records were reviewed for renal transplantation candidates undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy between 2011 and 2015 by a single surgeon...

BACKGROUND: Cirrhosis is associated with blood loss during liver resection and postoperative complications. The liver stiffness measurement has recently become available for assessment of liver fibrosis. METHODS: This prospective study was performed to predict postoperative outcomes of liver resection. The liver stiffness measurement was measured prospectively using magnetic resonance elastography for patients who had undergone liver resection for malignancy. We investigated whether the liver stiffness measurement by magnetic resonance elastography is correlated with liver fibrosis and postoperative outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Road traffic injury surveillance systems are a cornerstone of organized efforts at injury control. Although high-income countries rely on established trauma registries and police databases, in low- and middle-income countries, the data source that provides the best collection of road traffic injury events in specific low- and middle-income country contexts without mature surveillance systems is unclear. The objective of this study was to compare the information available on road traffic injuries in 3 data sources used for surveillance in the sub-Saharan African country of Cameroon, providing potential insight on data sources for road traffic injury surveillance in low- and middle-income countries...

BACKGROUND: Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is used to accelerate growth of the future liver remnant. We investigated alternative methods for increasing the future liver remnant. METHODS: A total of 152 rats were randomized as follows: (1) sham; (2) portal vein ligation; (3) portal vein ligation/surgical split (ALPPS); (4) portal vein ligation/split of the liver with a radiofrequency ablation needle; (5) portal vein ligation/radiofrequency ablation of the deportalized liver (portal vein ligation/radiofrequency ablation necrosis in the deportalized liver); (6) portal vein ligation/radiofrequency ablation of the future liver remnant (portal vein ligation/radiofrequency ablation-future liver remnant); and (7) controls...

BACKGROUND: Armed conflict increasingly involves civilian populations, and health care needs may be immense. We hypothesized that sex disparities may exist among persons receiving operative care in conflict zones and sought to describe predictors of disparity. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of operative interventions performed between 2008 and 2014 at Médecins Sans Frontières Operation Center Brussels conflict projects. A Médecins Sans Frontières Operation Center Brussels conflict project was defined as a program established in response to human conflict, war, or social unrest...

BACKGROUND: Gallbladder cancer is a rare neoplasm with a poor prognosis. Early diagnosis and correct treatment strategy is important. The aim of this study was to identify predictors for incidental gallbladder cancer. METHODS: Data from cholecystectomies registered in the nationwide Swedish Register for Gallstone Surgery between 2007 and 2014 were analyzed for incidental gallbladder cancer. Exclusion criteria were patients with a gallbladder not sent for histopathology, preoperative suspicion of polyps/gallbladder cancer, and indication for operation for other reasons than gallstone disease...

BACKGROUND: Injury is a leading cause of disability and death worldwide, accounting for over 5 million deaths each year. The injury burden is higher in low- and middle-income countries where more than 90% of injury-related deaths occur. Despite this burden, the use of prospective trauma registries to describe injury epidemiology and outcomes is limited in low- and middle-income countries. Kenya lacks robust data to describe injury epidemiology and care. The objective of this study was to investigate the epidemiology and outcomes of injuries at 4 referral hospitals in Kenya using hospital-based trauma registries...

BACKGROUND: We reviewed the published literature related to prehospital and hospital trauma care in India to identify how trauma care is defined in the literature and what factors limit the delivery of appropriate trauma care. In summarizing the evidence and recommendations regarding trauma care, this review identifies essential research and development goals to address the burden of injury in India. METHODS: A review of the literature was conducted between August 2014 and September 2014...
