AIM OF STUDY: We aimed to investigate whether the difference in pleural pressures (ΔP) is wider among patients who develop a residual pneumothorax after chest tube removal following lung resection surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-eight patients who underwent lung resection were included in the study over a period of 12 months. The ΔP prior to chest tube removal in patients who developed a residual pneumothorax after chest tube removal was compared with that of patients who did not develop this complication...

AIM: It is difficult to treat delayed acetabular fractures due to massive blood loss during operation. Temporary balloon occlusion of the abdominal aorta was introduced into sacral tumor surgery to reduce intraoperative hemorrhage. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of this method on reduction of intraoperative blood loss and analyze the complications of this technique in the treatment of delayed acetabular fracture. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 43 patients with delayed acetabular fracture who were surgically treated through combined approaches...

BACKGROUND: With an aging population, more elderly patients are being considered for hepatic resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study aimed to evaluate postoperative outcomes including liver regeneration after major hepatectomy for HCC in the elderly. METHODS: We assessed 41 patients who underwent major hepatectomy (≥3 segments) at our institute between 2000 and 2013. Patients were divided into two age groups, elderly group (age ≥70 years, n = 23) and younger group (age <70 years, n = 18)...

AIM: To investigate regarding the safety and effectiveness of a balloon catheter (Aqueduct-100 device) to dilate the uterine cervix before operative hysteroscopies. Secondary objectives were to evaluate the duration of the dilatation procedure and to investigate on physicians' satisfaction with the device. METHODS: Fifty women younger than 40 years, wishing pregnancies and diagnosed with apparently benign intrauterine lesions and/or uterine anomalies, were enrolled into this study and submitted to cervical priming with Aqueduct-100 device before operative hysteroscopy...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify a theoretical support for the prevention of urethral fistula following hypospadias repair, by comparing the preputial wound healing process in Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats with and without hypospadias induced by flutamide. METHODS: Fifteen pregnant SD rats were randomly divided into three groups. These rats in one group received the androgen receptor antagonist flutamide (25 mg/kg/day) from gestation days 11-17, to establish a rat model of hypospadias for further study of the molecular mechanisms of the hypospadias etiology...

BACKGROUND: Excessive blood loss is a relevant complication of partial liver resection. Topical hemostatic agents have proven useful to improve the control of the bleeding in this among other surgical indications. Until now all of these products have been based on the action of thrombin. In contrast TT-173 is a new topical hemostatic agent based on recombinant tissue factor naturally incorporated into membrane vesicles. This work sought to assess the efficacy and toxicity of TT-173 in an animal model of liver resection...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to explore the feasibility and clinical applicability of a modified type V resection method for malignant bone tumors of the proximal humerus. METHODS: The relevant anatomic MRI data from 30 normal adult shoulder joints were measured to analyze the feasibility of the modified type V resection method for malignant bone tumors of the proximal humerus. Sixteen patients with malignant bone tumors of the proximal humerus were treated with modified radical resection between March 2012 and April 2017...

PURPOSE: Endobiliary radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a new endoscopic ablative technique. However, the ideal power setting for RFA has not yet been clarified. Therefore, we intended to evaluate the effects of endobiliary RFA according to time variations using novel RFA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Nine female pigs were divided into three groups according to ablation time (60, 90, and 120 seconds) with the same setting (10 watts, 80 °C). All pigs underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) and endobiliary RFA in the common bile duct...

BACKGROUND: Radical hysterectomy could result in dysfunctions of pelvic organs and a decline in quality of life. METHOD: 298 patients who had underwent laparoscopic radical hysterectomy were retrospectively analyzed in this study, of which 216 patients had underwent laparoscopic nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy (LNSRH) and 82 had underwent classical laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (LRH). The mean duration of the postoperative catheterization, a questionnaire and an urodynamic examination were used to assess the bladder functions...

PURPOSE: Double ipsilateral inguinal ("pantaloon") hernias and also the more advanced "combined" inguinal hernia involve disruption of the inguinal floor. In the case of pantaloon hernias, the medial boundary of the internal ring remains intact but in combined hernias this is fully disrupted, producing a single hernial protrusion. Deepening the pathophysiology of these hernias may be helpful in addressing hernia genesis, thus improving strategies for the treatment of this disease...

INTRODUCTION: Translating basic science research into a safe and effective therapy for spinal cord injury (SCI) requires suitable large animal models for testing both implantable devices and biologic approaches to better approximate human anatomy and function. Hemisection lesions, routinely used for investigational purposes in small animals, are less frequently described in large animals that might be appropriate for translational studies. Size constraints of small animals (mice and rats) limits the predictability of the findings when scaled up...

Purpose/Aim of the study: The main purpose of the colonoscopy is screening for colorectal cancers and diagnosis of colorectal disease The cost-effectiveness of colonoscopy directly depend on the adequate bowel preparation. Inadequate colonoscopy is recommended to be re-scheduled within 1 year. Re-scheduling is an economic and patient burden. Thus instead of re-scheduling, another strategy may be attempted. The purpose of this study was to examine the usefulness and effect of the same day repeat colonoscopy after administration of an additional laxative dose...

PURPOSE: Fibrin glue and polyglycolic acid felt are used for tissue repair in various surgical procedures. However, using a spray device to apply fibrin sealant during laparoscopic surgery can increase the intraperitoneal pressure, which can cause complications such as air embolism. We developed a novel non-gas endospray for use in laparoscopic surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the sealing effect of this non-gas endospray in comparison with a conventional gas-spray device and to evaluate the safety of its application in the clinical setting...
