OBJECTIVE: Hemorrhoidectomy is one of the most common hemorrhoid surgery. Many areas are innervated by nerves, and this makes the surgery to be very painful. Various anesthetic methods have been proposed, and the number of investigations and procedures demonstrated the absence of a reliable method for reducing pain. This study compares the cavity ischiorectal block with spinal anesthesia in reducing postoperative pain, analgesic consumption, and hospital stay. RESEARCH DESIGN: This study is a randomized control trial carried out on seventy patients sampled...

PURPOSE: Non-opioid medications as a part of multimodal analgesia has been increasingly suggested in the management of acute post-surgical pain. The present study was planned to compare the efficacy of the combination of pregabalin plus ıv ibuprofen. METHODS: 58 patients were included in this prospective, randomized, double-blinded study. The pregabalin group (Group P, n = 29) received 150 mg pregabalin, the pregabalin plus ibuprofen group (Gropu PI, n = 29) received 150 mg pregabalin and 400mg ıv ibuprofen before surgery...

To prevent postoperative abdominal adhesions, many new antiadhesion materials have been developed all over the world. Few studies have analyzed the thickness of antiadhesive materials, but it is an important factor in maximizing adhesion prevention. The aspect of material thickness will needed for the future studies. However, few materials proceeded further than animal experimentation. Comparison tests between the newly developed antiadhesion materials and products already on the market will make it easier to conduct clinical trials...

BACKGROUND: Steroid-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) in young adults is a challenging disorder that can impairs the quality of life of a patient. The disease also leads to frequent occurrences of collapse of the femoral head and resultant dysfunction of the hip joint. In recent years, some scholars have studied steroid-induced lipid metabolism disorder and achieved the effect of steroid-induced ONFH treatment. This study aims to review the investigations on the hepatic CYP3A (cytochrome P4503A enzyme) genetic polymorphisms in steroid-induced ONFH patients...

AIM: Hemophilic pseudotumors result from repeated episodes of bleeding into bone, subperiosteum, and soft tissue. Since clotting factors became available, uncontrolled perioperative bleeding is a less significant problem for surgeons in developed countries. However, they are more difficult to come by in China. Additionally, patients often have to undergo surgery for giant masses and suffer complications. We wanted to present our experience in the surgical management of hemophilic pseudotumors over a 40-year period...

Median and Ulnar nerve palsy is a devastating condition that compromise hand function. A procedure of tendon transfer may be helpful to restore the movements by linking palsy muscles to other muscles able to contract. Scientific discoveries and technological innovations have profoundly changed this kind of surgery; studies on sarcomeres, for example, changed the concept of tensioning. To date we know that muscle strength and its contraction capacity depends on many factors (not only tensioning) such as sarcomeres length, cellular cytoskeleton and extracellular matrix composition: all of these factors interact together and in a ways not still fully understood, determining the complex concept of "movement...

AIM: Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) has been used as a strategy to reduce acute renal injury and ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) in renal transplantation (RT) with controversial results. OBJECTIVE: To determine if RIPC modifies IRI in cadaveric RT recipients through inflammatory mediators and graft function. METHODS: Twenty-nine RT recipients were studied, 12 in the control group (CG) and 17 in the RIPC group. RIPC which was performed on donors using a pneumatic tourniquet placed on both thighs for 10 min followed by the determination of IL-1, IL-6, TNF-α, VEGF, and ICAM-1, and hematological and biochemical parameters in different phases of RT...

OBJECTIVES: To facilitate simple and safe manipulation during proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) operation, we studied the range of safe implantation angle of the helical blade of the PFNA system by using a digital-based three-dimensional reconstruction model of CT images. METHODS: Thirty-five healthy volunteers were recruited. Original multilayer helical CT scan data of the left femur were collected and imported into Mimics software. Anatomic features of the femur, including the safe implantation angle, anterior and posterior angle, were measured...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The usefulness of sentinel lymph node biopsy in thick melanomas is debated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible prognostic significance of sentinel lymph node biopsy in T4 melanoma patients and to verify whether this was a homogeneous group of patients with similar poor behavior. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective observational study was performed. Data were extracted from the Tuscan Regional Referral Center database. The outcome of sentinel lymph node-negative and sentinel lymph node-positive T4 melanomas were compared...

Purpose/aim: To focus on current aspects of primary thyroid lymphoma (PTL), which is a rare clinical entity usually manifested by a rapidly growing mass in the neck that can cause pressure symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Relevant papers in PubMed published through June 2017 were selected to track updated information about PTL with an emphasis on diagnosis and novel therapeutic management. RESULTS: The most frequent cases include non-Hodgkin lymphoma derived from B-cells, mainly diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) followed by mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma or a mixed type...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic liver resection is safe, feasible and associated with less blood loss, shorter hospital stays and fewer postoperative complications in the working age patients with malignant liver tumors. However, it is still unclear if the elderly patients with malignant liver tumors would also benefit from that approach as the younger patients. So, the aim of the study was to compare the clinical outcomes of laparoscopic versus open liver resection for malignant liver tumors in elderly patients...

Renal ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI), an inevitable event during kidney transplantation procedure, can result in delayed graft function or even primary nonfunction. In addition to strategies to limit IRI such as advancements in organ allocation systems and preservation of organs, and reduction in cold and warm ischemia time, remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) has attracted much attention in recent years. With promising findings and data suggesting a potential benefit of RIC in animal kidney transplantation models, a few clinical trials have investigated the use of RIC in human kidney transplantation...

PURPOSE: To measure serum PTX3 levels in patients admitted with right lower quadrant pain to emergency department and to investigate whether this parameter will be helpful for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was conducted with a group of 89 patients over 17 years of age who were admitted with the complaint of right lower quadrant pain to ED and had a preliminary diagnosis of acute appendicitis clinically and the control group of 31 healthy volunteers in a tertiary university hospital for 3 months...

PURPOSE: Albendazole is the drug of choice for chemotherapy of cystic echinococcosis (CE) but 40% of patients do not respond to it satisfactorily. With regard to the previously reported scolicidal activity of Zataria multiflora, this study was done to evaluate the efficacy of the co-administration of albendazole and Z. multiflora aromatic water (AW) on hydatid cysts in a murine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Laboratory mice were infected with 1,500 viable protoscoleces...
