BACKGROUND: In patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and preoperative imaging suggesting a solitary parathyroid adenoma (SPA), focused parathyroidectomy is most often curative. Even so, large studies show up to 3% of patients experience persistent or recurrent PHPT. Unilateral neck exploration (UNE) aiming to identify the SPA and the other ipsilateral parathyroid may reduce this failure rate. We hypothesized that: (i) minimally invasive video-assisted (MIVA) approach would facilitate UNE and (ii) this would be a clinically relevant strategy...

BACKGROUND: Recently a procedure termed 'Associating Liver Partition and Portal vein ligation for Staged hepatectomy' (ALPPS) was developed to increase the resectability of marginally resectable or locally unresectable liver tumours. This study focused on the application of ALPPS in patients with advanced colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) and pre-operative chemotherapy, with the aim to investigate whether the latter still allows for sufficient hypertrophy of the future liver remnant (FLR) following the first step of ALPPS...

BACKGROUND: Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is rarely on its own the indication for thyroidectomy. However, surgery in patients with HT will be undertaken when there is malignancy and may be required for pressure symptoms. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the indications for surgery in HT patients. METHODS: The Monash University Endocrine Surgery Database was analysed from 1994 to 2013 for patients with HT. Patients with HT were compared to a similar group of patients with no HT on histopathology...

BACKGROUND: Medium-sized, non-trauma hospitals experience many of the same difficulties as tertiary centres do when it comes to managing emergency general surgery patients. However, acute surgical units are not a financially viable option in these hospitals. To improve the care of emergency general surgery patients at one such hospital, a Rapid Assessment Medical Surgical (RAMS) unit was developed to decrease the time to review and increase the efficiency in caring for these patients...

Alfin Okullo, Yuigi Yuminaga, William Ziaziaris, David Ende, Howard Lau, Andrew Brooks, Manish I Patel, Simon Bariol
BACKGROUND: Many surgeons use a stent after ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL). For short-term stenting purposes, a surgeon has the choice of either a tethered or a non-tethered stent. Stents may be associated with complications that entail an additional cost to their use. There is a paucity of data on the direct healthcare cost of using stent type after either primary or secondary URSL. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records for patients who underwent URSL for uncomplicated urolithiasis between January 2013 and December 2013 at two tertiary referral hospitals...

BACKGROUND: Acute cholangitis, also known as ascending cholangitis, is a life-threatening systemic condition that results from a biliary tree infection and obstruction. Severe acute cholangitis was reported to have a mortality rate between 11 and 27% in the 1990s. This article is a literature review about acute cholangitis. Its aim is to review the latest literature about acute cholangitis and to discuss its pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis, prognosis, risk factors and treatment...

REVIEW
Kevin Phan, Konrad Schultz, Victor M Lu, Ryan J Campbell, Nelson Wang, Prashanth J Rao
Vertebral artery (VA) aneurysms in the paediatric population are a rare but a serious condition. However, the epidemiology of paediatric VA aneurysms is poorly understood and there is little consensus on what constitutes the appropriate treatment. Although multiple treatment options are available, including surgery, endovascular approaches, coil embolization and parent artery occlusion, there is limited clinical evidence regarding which approach is most optimal. This review outlines the current literature and evidence outlining the epidemiology, presentation, pathogenesis and treatment of paediatric VA aneurysms...

#17
REVIEW
Ju Yong Cheong, Anil Keshava
Traumatic colorectal injuries are common during times of military conflict, and major improvements in their care have arisen in such periods. Since World War II, many classification systems for colorectal trauma have been proposed, including (i) Flint Grading System; (ii) Penetrating Abdominal Trauma Index; (iii) Colonic/Rectal Injury Scale; and (iv) destructive/non-destructive colonic injuries. The primary goal of these classifications was to aid surgical management and, more particularly, to determine whether a primary repair or faecal diversion should be performed...

Hannah Collins, Kin Mun Lee, Paul T-Y Cheng, Sarah Hulme
BACKGROUND: A fish spike injury can be sustained by anyone handling fish; during fishing, meal preparation or in retail. Case reports of fish spikes inoculating victims with virulent marine-specific pathogens and causing systemic illness led us to question whether empirical treatment of these injuries with amoxicillin and clavulanic acid is adequate. METHODS: This 2-year prospective observational study was conducted at Middlemore Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand...

REVIEW
Thore L Borgenvik, Tina M Karlsvik, Saikat Ray, Monica Fawzy, Nick James
BACKGROUND: Malignant blue nevus, blue nevus-associated melanoma and blue nevus-like melanoma are all terms used to describe malignant melanomas arising from, in association with, or resembling blue nevi. This review is aimed at summarizing the available literature to reduce the confusion surrounding this rare malignancy, and aid the surgeon in choosing further diagnostic or therapeutic measures. METHODS: We conducted a search of Medline, Embase, Science Direct, Scopus and the Cochrane Library for all full text articles published in English that reported on a malignant melanoma arising from, in association with, or resembling a blue nevus...
