#1
Hugh Taylor, Amalia Karahalios, David Bramley
BACKGROUND: Smoking is associated with adverse effects in the perioperative period, including elevated risk of death. The perioperative period provides an opportunity to engage with patients who are smokers to encourage smoking cessation, often referred to as a 'teachable moment'. We developed a smoking intervention model for the pre-admission clinic (PAC) at Western Health, Victoria, Australia. This case series aimed to assess the impact of the smoking intervention model, which is standard of care, on the participant's smoking habits over four time points...

BACKGROUND: A reversal of Hartmann's procedure can be performed using either a laparoscopic or open approach. However, laparoscopic reversal (LR) of Hartmann's procedure is challenging. This study was designed to compare the results between open and laparoscopic approaches. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of prospectively collected data. We analysed 29 patients who received Hartmann's reversal at Korea University Anam Hospital between April 2007 and September 2014...

BACKGROUND: The acellular dermal matrix (Flex HD) (FHD) became available for use in Western Australia in 2014 to aid prosthetic breast reconstruction and this descriptive study aims to review and discuss a single institution's experience since its introduction. METHODS: By retrospective case note, review data were collected for all patients who underwent prosthetic breast reconstruction with the aid of FHD between January 2014 and August 2015 in our institution...

BACKGROUND: A key metric of the research quality of medical conferences is the publication rate of abstracts. The study objective was to determine the publication rate of abstracts presented at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Annual Scientific Congress (RACS ASC) and to examine for any predictive factors associated with publication. METHODS: Abstracts presented at the RACS ASC from 2011 to 2013 were analysed. Abstract characteristics such as presentation format, study type, study design, study site, cohort size and author origin were recorded...

BACKGROUND: This study is a collation of baseline demographic characteristics of those presenting for rotator cuff repair in New Zealand, and exploration of associations with preoperative function and pain. Data were obtained from the New Zealand Rotator Cuff Registry; a multicentre, nationwide prospective cohort of rotator cuff repairs undertaken from 1 March 2009 until 31 December 2010. METHODS: A total of 1383 patients were included in the study. This required complete demographic information, preoperative Flex-SF (functional score) and pain scores...

BACKGROUND: Histological heterogeneity is thought to be important for prognosis of lung adenocarcinoma. We investigated to determine pathological features with prognostic value for recurrence of early stage lung cancer. METHODS: A total of 368 patients who underwent curative surgical resection for early stage lung adenocarcinoma between 2009 and 2012 were enrolled. Pathologic characteristics including the presence of visceral pleural invasion, micropapillary patterns, aerogenous spread, lymphovascular invasion, perineural invasion and necrosis were examined...

BACKGROUND: Long-term improvement in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is one of the most important outcomes of cardiac surgery. The aim of this study is to define the impact of perioperative patient and procedural variables on HRQOL dynamics, a year after cardiac surgery. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing elective on-pump cardiac surgery were enrolled in this prospective observational cohort study. Patients completed the Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) questionnaire a day before surgery and once again a year after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Although the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade was established for statistical purposes, it is often used prognostically. However, older patients undergoing elective surgery are typically ASA III, which limits patient stratification. We look at the prognostic effect on early complications and survival of using ASA and self-reported physical fitness to stratify patients undergoing endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms. METHODS: Data were extracted from a trial database...

BACKGROUND: Emergency appendicectomy is the most common emergency surgical procedure performed in Australia. Despite this frequency, there is a relative paucity of contemporary, broad-based, local data that examine how emergency appendicectomies are currently performed and what are the outcomes from these operations. METHODS: A multicentre, prospective, observational study was performed. Patients were recruited by local investigators for a period of 2 months with 30-day follow-up...

BACKGROUND: To assess the prognostic value of preoperative (18) F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography in patients with high-risk stage II or stage III colon cancer who underwent FOLFOX chemotherapy. METHODS: The study included 166 patients with high-risk stage II or stage III colon cancer who received FOLFOX4 chemotherapy. Retrospective patient data were analysed including pathological stage, histology, disease-free survival (DFS) and the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax ) of the primary tumour on (18) F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography...

BACKGROUND: Brain metastases (BMs) are the most common intracranial neoplasms in adults, but they rarely arise from colorectal cancer (CRC). The objective of this study was to report an overview of the characteristics and current management of CRC BMs. METHODS: A systematic review on CRC BMs was performed using Medline database from 1983 to 2015. The search was limited to studies published in English. Review articles, not relevant case report or studies or studies relating to animal and in vitro experiments were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Adrenal incidentalomas are increasingly diagnosed and include a wide spectrum of lesions from benign adenomas to secreting or malignant lesions. The aim of the present study is to report a large single-institution experience of patients undergoing surgery for adrenal incidentaloma with particular attention to their diagnosis and post-operative course and the evolution of surgical practice over time. METHODS: From 1993 to 2013, 274 patients underwent adrenalectomy for incidentaloma...

BACKGROUND: Extravasation occurs when a drug is inadvertently administered outside of the vein. Depending on the substance involved, this may lead to tissue necrosis with significant long-term morbidity. Children, particularly neonates, are particularly susceptible to extravasation with up to 70% of children in neonatal intensive care unit having some form of extravasation injury. These injuries are commonly referred to plastic surgeons for ongoing management. METHODS: We prospectively collected information on all extravasation injuries referred to the plastic surgery department in a children's hospital over an 18-month period...

BACKGROUND: A commonly used metric for evaluating the quality and impact of presentations at a scientific meeting is the frequency with which the findings presented are published as full research papers in peer-reviewed journals. The purpose of this study was to determine the full article publication rates of abstract presentations for General Surgery and related sub-specialities at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Annual Scientific Congress (RACS ASC) from 2010 to 2014. METHODS: All General Surgical (including its sub-speciality groups) abstracts presented at the RACS ASC from 2010 to 2014 were identified from the ANZ Journal of Surgery...

BACKGROUND: Less invasive surgery is widely used in the treatment of early gastric cancer; however, no definite guidelines exist regarding indications for less invasive surgery to treat early gastric cancer with signet ring cell histology. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for lymph node metastasis (LNM) in early signet ring cell carcinoma (SRC). An extensive search of PubMed, Embase and the Cochrane library was performed for pertinent articles involving early SRC and LNM...

BACKGROUND: Compared with traditional (Trad) systems of managing emergency surgical presentations, the acute surgical unit (ASU) model provides an on-site registrar, on-call surgeon and dedicated emergency theatre, 24 h/day. To date, there have been no Australasian ASU studies of >3000 patients, nor from South Australia. METHODS: A retrospective historical control study compared the outcomes of adults admitted to the Lyell McEwin Hospital in the Trad (1 February 2010 to 31 July 2012) and ASU periods (1 August 2012 to 31 January 2015), who underwent an emergency general surgical procedure...
