BACKGROUND: There are various ways of fixating an intraperitoneal onlay mesh during a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. The risk of complications is high, and around 22% of the hernias will recur within 3.5 years. The aim of this study was to assess if sutures in addition to tack fixation would reduce the re-operation rate for recurrence compared with permanent tacks without sutures. METHODS: This study was based on the data from the nationwide Danish Ventral Hernia Database, which contains information of ventral hernia repairs from all hospitals in Denmark...

PURPOSE: Pheochromocytomas (PCCs) exhibit malignant potential, but current histological modalities for the proper detection of aggressive behavior are debated. The two most widespread algorithms are the "Pheochromocytoma of the Adrenal Gland Scaled Score" (PASS) and the "Grading System for Adrenal Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma" (GAPP), both which mostly rely on histological parameters to identify PCC patients at risk of disseminated disease. Since the algorithms are derived from studies using predominantly sporadic PCCs, little is known whether the PASS or GAPP scores can predict malignant potential in hereditary cases...

PURPOSE: We used propensity score matching to compare the complication rates after laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) with esophagojejunostomy (EJS) performed using a circular or a linear stapler. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled all patients who underwent curative LTG between November 2004 and March 2016. Patients were categorized into the circular and linear groups according to the stapler type used for the subsequent EJS. Patients in the groups were matched using the following propensity score covariates: age, sex, body mass index, American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status, extent of lymph node dissection, and Japanese Classification of Gastric Carcinoma stage...

PURPOSE: Viral infections represent a serious threat for patients after liver transplantation (LT). The identification of risk factors during the early post-transplant period might help to improve prevention of viral infections after LT. METHODS: Between 2004 and 2010, 530 adult patients underwent LT at a large university hospital serving a metropolitan region in Europe. This retrospective single-centre study analysed putative risk factors for early viral infections with herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1), varicella-zoster virus (VZV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), hepatitis A/B/C (HAV/HBV/HCV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) in the first 3 months after LT...

INTRODUCTION: The outcomes of failed laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomies (LSG) converted to laparoscopic standard R-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) in case of insufficient weight loss (IWL), weight regain (WR), and/or severe gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) are scanty. PURPOSE: To evaluate incidence, indications, and short-term outcomes of LSG conversion to LRYGB in three bariatric centers. METHODS: Patients operated between January 2012 and December 2016 by primary LSG, with mean follow-up of 24 months and converted to LRYGB for IWL, WR, and/or GERD, were retrospectively analyzed for demographics, operative details, perioperative complications, comorbidities evolution, and further WL...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic liver resection is widely used for liver tumors, but its utility in patients with cirrhosis remains controversial. The aim of this study was to assess the surgical outcomes of laparoscopic liver resection in patients with liver cirrhosis with specific reference to a difficulty scoring system. METHODS: From January 2010 to March 2016, the outcomes of laparoscopic liver resection in 95 patients were retrospectively reviewed. Surgical outcomes were analyzed to identify differences between the liver cirrhosis and non-liver cirrhosis groups; these groups were further stratified to high and low difficulty scores...

PURPOSE: Prognostic factors for survival ≥ 15 years and life years lost after liver transplantation are largely unknown. METHODS: One thousand six hundred thirty primary adult liver transplants between 1983 and 2014 were analyzed. Risk factors for survival were identified with multivariable Cox regression and subsequently tested for their relevance as prognostic factors for observed 15-year survival using multivariable logistic regression and c statistics. The difference of life expectancy between a matched national reference population and survival in patients with post-transplant survival ≥ 15 years was calculated...

BACKGROUND: Peripancreatic collections occur frequently after distal pancreatectomy. However, the sequelae of peripancreatic collections vary from case to case, and their clinical impact is uncertain. In this study, the correlations between CT findings of peripancreatic collections and complications after distal pancreatectomy were investigated. METHODS: Ninety-six consecutive patients who had undergone distal pancreatectomy between 2010 and 2015 were retrospectively investigated...

PURPOSE: Esophageal cancer is one of the deadliest cancers worldwide. Esophagectomy with lymphadenectomy is regarded as the only curative option for resectable esophageal cancer, but it is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Multidisciplinary team (MDT) management was recently associated with improved outcomes after surgery for esophageal cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of standardizing procedures for minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) in the MDT setting...

PURPOSE: Visualization and precise dissection of the parathyroid glands are a crucial step of thyroidectomy. Moreover, identification of parathyroid adenoma in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism can be challenging due to the possible abnormal location of the enlarged parathyroid. Near-infrared fluorescence (NIR) can be adopted during video-assisted neck surgery in addition to standard endoscopic magnification to enhance the visualization of the parathyroid tissue. METHODS: Between July and August 2017, five patients (one male, four females) underwent video-assisted neck surgery at our hospital...
