BACKGROUND: Uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is gaining popularity among thoracic surgeons, but the limited space in the thorax of children makes uniportal VATS difficult to perform. The purpose of this study was to evaluate procedural and outcome differences between a modified uniportal VATS (MU-VATS) and three-port VATS (TP-VATS) for peripheral lung nodule biopsy in pediatric cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is an Institutional Review Board-approved retrospective analysis of all consecutive MU-VATS and TP-VATS peripheral lung nodule biopsies performed at a single institution between June 2014 and December 2016...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of urolithiasis is nearly 20% and patients with urolithiasis constitute an essential part of the patients referred to the urology clinic. Many parameters should be considered for the management of renal stones and authors recommend extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL), retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS), and percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PNL), as treatment options. Among these techniques, SWL does not require general anesthesia, has 89% success rate for renal pelvic stones: 83% for upper caliceal stones, 84% for middle caliceal stones, and 68% for lower caliceal stones...

INTRODUCTION: Innovative strategies to reduce costs while maintaining patient satisfaction and improving delivery of care are greatly needed in the setting of rapidly rising health care expenditure. Intensive care units (ICUs) represent a significant proportion of health care costs due to their high resources utilization. Currently, the decision to admit a patient to the ICU lacks standardization because of the lack of evidence-based admission criteria. The objective of our research is to develop a prediction model that can help the physician in the clinical decision-making of postoperative triage...

PURPOSE: Management strategies for acutely incarcerated/strangulated groin and obturator hernias may differ from institution to institution, although, conventionally, the open approach has been used. Recently, laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair and totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair have become commonly used operative procedures for the repair of groin hernias. It is unclear whether laparoscopic reduction and herniorrhaphy can be successfully accomplished in all cases...
