AIMS OF THE STUDY: Fingertip injuries can be treated in different ways, including shortening with primary closure, skin graft, and local or distant flaps. Several local flaps for the reconstruction of the amputated fingertip were described. We present our experience with a new concept of homodigital adipofascial reverse flap that avoids the second surgical stage and allows a complete and anatomically perfect reconstruction of nail bed, with preservation of the nail lamina. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between March 2014 and February 2015, five patients with digital amputations (distally to the nail matrix) were treated using the Fenestrated Adipofascial Reverse (F...

PURPOSE: The spleen presents numerous functions, including the production of immunoglobulins and blood filtration, removing microorganisms and cellular debris. The spleen also has anatomical and functional relationship with the liver, but there are few studies on this topic. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of splenectomy and autologous spleen transplantation on both filtering functions of spleen and acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-two BALB/c mice were randomized into four groups: splenectomized; splenectomy and splenic autotransplantation in the greater omentum; sham operated control; and non-operated control...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)-assisted lung parenchymal transection through thoracotomy and thoracoscopy. Twelve domestic pigs underwent RFA-assisted lingulectomy: six through thoracotomy (group A), and six with thoracoscopy (group B). There was no mortality, no bleeding, or air leak intra- or postoperatively in either of the groups, and no conversion to open thoracotomy in group B. Group A had longer operating period and more pleural adhesions. A barotrauma, a skin burn, and a localized infection were observed in this group...

Peritoneal invasion is more common and has a worse prognosis in gastric cancer than most of other intestinal cancers. Advanced gastric cancers have a poor course in terms of the development of peritoneal carcinomatosis and prognosis, even if the curative resection has been performed. Patients usually die within the first 2 years of the postoperative period mainly due to peritoneal metastasis. It is, therefore, essential to eradicate intraperitoneal free cancer cells to prevent peritoneal recurrences. A standard therapy has not been developed yet for patients with gastric cancer with a positive peritoneal cytology or a gross peritoneal metastasis...

AIM: Bariatric surgery is becoming an acceptable option for treatment of obesity worldwide, but there is no systemic review and meta-analysis focusing on obese patients in China. This study is to quantify the overall effects of bariatric surgery for Chinese obesity using up-to-date, comprehensive data. METHODS: We systematically searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, ISI Web of Science, and CNKI databases in English and Chinese. The weighted mean difference (MD) and 95% confidence interval (CI) were calculated from the original literature...

Complete ischemia and reperfusion effects on twitch force (∫(F·t)), twitch latent period (TLP), maximal rate of rise of twitch tension (δF/δt)max, and twitch maximum relaxation rate (TMRR) were assessed. We divided 36 adult rats into four groups; two control groups (n = 9), a group undergoing 1 hour of ischemia followed by 1 hour of reperfusion (n = 9), and one group exposed to 2 hours of ischemia followed by 1 hour of reperfusion (n = 9). We have induced twitch contractions every 10 minutes in the soleus and the extensor carpi radialis longus (ECRL)...

BACKGROUND: Gadoxetic acid is a liver-specific intravenous T1 magnetic resonance (MR) contrast agent that is excreted via the hepatobiliary system. We hypothesize that hepatocyte expressions of bile transporters (OATP1 and MRP2) correlate with dynamic profile of Gadoxetic acid enhanced (GE)-MR imaging (MRI). METHODS: Two groups of rats, control (n = 6) and cirrhosis (n = 12), received gadoxetic acid enhanced MRI followed by 70% hepatectomy. The change in MR signal intensity from the baseline before the contrast injection (ΔSI) was analyzed every minute for 30 min...

BACKGROUND: After considerable weight loss, the breast suffers significant deformation. The ptotic breast is characterized by a lack of superior pole, tissue excess in the inferior pole, down-migration of nipple-areola complex (NAC) with redundancy to skin tissue. The authors describe a mastopexy technique based on a modulated and progressive reshaping, back rotation, and suspension of mammary gland parenchyma without parenchymal incisions. METHODS: Forty-five patients with bilateral moderate or severe breast ptosis underwent mastopexy from January 2011 to January 2014 with complete detachment of breast from the pectoralis major muscle and the plication line of parenchyma without any parenchymal incision...

PURPOSE: Acute appendicitis is the most frequent emergency procedure that requires acute surgical intervention. The mortality risk is higher in geriatric patients. There is not a single parameter to diagnose it easily and negative appendectomy is traditionally accepted however the operation itself can cause morbidity and mortality especially in elderly patients. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio is a predictor of acute inflammation and was recently studied for the diagnosis of AA. The aim of this study is to analyze the diagnostic value of NLR on positive appendectomy rates amongst geriatric and nongeriatric patients...

INTRODUCTION: Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) is a rare benign inflammatory breast disease that can clinically and radiographically mimic breast carcinoma and bacterial mastitis. The aim of this study is to investigate the importance of levels of the inflammation markers, interleukin-33 (IL-33), soluble ST2 receptor of IL-33 (sST2), procalcitonin (PCT), and CRP on differential diagnosis of IGM and breast cancer (BC). METHODS: 25 patients with IGM and 32 patients with primary BC who applied to General Surgery Clinic, and 30 healthy volunteer women with similar demographic condition were enrolled in the study...

PURPOSE: Ideal approaches and materials for reconstruction of large chest wall defects remain a topic of debate. We sought to explore the suitability of a reinforced nanostructured cellulose (NC) patch for chest wall reconstruction in an animal model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In four domestic pigs, a standardized 10 × 10 cm chest wall defect was created by resecting three rib segments. Subsequently the defect was reconstructed via a biosynthetic NC patch (16 × 12 cm) reinforced by polytetrafluoroethylene mesh...

Pseudoaneurysmogastric fistula is a rare consequence of pseudoaneurysms occurring in the vicinity of stomach. They are the result of pseudoaneurysms eroding into the stomach, and represent a life threatening emergency. Urgent surgical intervention is often necessary to salvage the patient. Data regarding the presentation and management of this condition is sparse. Herein, we present our experience with four cases of pseudoaneurysmogastric fistula, their clinical context, presentation, management and outcomes...

Dong Jin Kim, Wook Kim, Jun Hyun Lee
PURPOSE: Intra-corporeal esophagojejunostomy (EJ) using a linear stapler creates a stapler entry hole that requires secure closure during the totally laparoscopic total gastrectomy (TLTG) procedure for gastric cancer. Since a standard method has not been established yet, the feasibility of using V-loc 180 (Covidien, Mansfield, MA, USA) suture material was evaluated in this study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: During January 2012 to March 2015, 25 patients who underwent linear stapling EJ and V-loc 180 closure of remaining enterotomy were included in this study...

AIM: Differentiating between parathyroid lesions is still difficult and ambiguous. In cases of primary hyperparathyroidism, appropriate and prompt diagnosis is of great importance for effective treatment and follow-up. A great amount of mechanisms contribute to the pathogenesis of primary hyperparathyroidism, such as disturbance in balance between pro- and anti-apoptotic factors. Therefore, we examined whether immunohistochemical expression of apoptotic factors, TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and Fas, could have clinical utility as a marker of proliferative lesions of parathyroid gland...

There are several animal models routinely used for study of the spinal fusion process and animal selection largely depends on the scientific question to be answered. This review outlines the advantages and disadvantages of various animal models used to study spinal fusion and describes the New Zealand White (NSW) rabbit which is the most popular preclinical model to study spinal fusion. We outline critical steps required in planning and performing spinal fusion surgery in this model. This includes determination of the required animal number to obtain statistical significance, an outline of appropriate technique for posterolateral fusion and other components of completing a study...
