REVIEW
Nisha Narula, Thomas A Aloia
BACKGROUND: Liver resection of benign, primary, and metastatic tumors is challenging and places patients at risk of postoperative liver insufficiency. This risk is largely dependent on the volume and function of the future liver remnant (FLR). It is, therefore, critical that hepatobiliary surgeons are well versed in the measurement of liver volume and function, as well as various techniques for preoperative liver volume augmentation. PURPOSE: This comprehensive review of portal vein embolization (PVE) begins with an overview of FLR measurement and progresses to patient factors to consider when choosing PVE and assessment of hypertrophy...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the procedural and clinical outcomes of carotid artery stenting (CAS) in the hands of endovascular trained vascular surgeons. METHODS: Between April 2008 to May 2013, 1197 patients were treated for extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis. The proportion of endovascular treated patients was 5.0% (CAS n = 60 vs. carotid endarterectomy (CEA) n = 1137). All patients in the CAS group (44 males, median age 70 years) were treated by two senior vascular surgeons experienced in endovascular methods...

BACKGROUND: Proximal early gastric cancer is a good indication for totally laparoscopic proximal gastrectomy (TLPG) with double-tract reconstruction (DTR). However, when most of the dietary intake passes through the escape route of the jejunum, the functional benefits of proximal gastrectomy might be similar to those after total gastrectomy. Our DTR procedure was improved for easy passage through the remnant stomach. The purposes of this study were to present a novel technique for intracorporeal DTR using linear staplers after TLPG and to investigate surgical outcomes...

PURPOSE: The relationship between the body mass index (BMI) of kidney transplant recipients and outcomes after kidney transplantation (KT) is not fully understood and remains controversial. We studied the influence of BMI on clinically relevant outcomes in kidney transplant recipients. METHODS: In this retrospective single-centre study, all patients who underwent kidney transplantation at our institution between January 2007 and December 2012 were included. Demographic data and BMI were correlated with the clinical course of the disease, rejection rates, delayed graft function rates, and graft and patient survival...

PURPOSE: Recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) injury is one of the most common and detrimental complications following thyroidectomy. Intermittent intraoperative nerve monitoring (I-IONM) has been proposed to reduce prevalence of RLN injury following thyroidectomy and has gained increasing acceptance in recent years. METHODS: A comprehensive database search was performed, and data from eligible meta-analyses meeting the inclusion criteria were extracted. Transient, permanent, and overall RLN injuries were the primary outcome measures...

PURPOSE: Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) can serve as a tool to increase skills in recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) identification and complete removal of thyroid tissue. The aim of this study was to validate this hypothesis. METHODS: This prospective study involved 632 patients (1161 RLNs at risk) who underwent thyroid surgery in 2011-2014. Although IONM was not used until 2012, this prospective study started on 1 January 2011. The three participating surgeons knew about the study before that date and that the rate of RLN identification would be carefully measured in total and near-total surgery...
