BACKGROUND: Prolonged pre-treatment wait times in head and neck cancer are associated with increased morbidity and reduced survival. Traditional metrics exclude delays prior to biopsy, which represents an important and measurable period of time. This study aims to describe total wait time for head and neck cancer patients in our institution, to define a more accurate representation of the clinically relevant pre-treatment wait time, and to evaluate predictive factors for prolonged wait times...

REVIEW
Emilia Nan Tie, Michael A Henderson, David E Gyorki
In-transit metastases (ITM) of cutaneous melanoma are locoregional recurrences confined to the superficial lymphatics that occur in 3.4-6.2% of patients diagnosed with melanoma. ITM are a heterogeneous disease that poses a therapeutic dilemma. Patients may have a prolonged disease trajectory involving multiple or repeat treatment modalities for frequent recurrences. The management of ITM has evolved without the development of a standardized protocol. Owing to the variability of the disease course there are few dedicated clinical trials, with a number of key trials in stage III melanoma excluding ITM patients...

BACKGROUND: Acute biliary pain is the most common presentation of gallstone disease. Untreated patients risk recurrent pain, cholecystitis, obstructive jaundice, pancreatitis and multiple hospital presentations. We examine the outcome of implementing a policy to offer laparoscopic cholecystectomy on index presentation to patients with biliary colic in a tertiary hospital in Australia. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of adult patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) with biliary pain during three 12-month periods...

BACKGROUND: Symptoms of bloating, discomfort and altered bowel function persist post-colonoscopy in up to 20% of patients. A previous randomized controlled trial of probiotics for post-colonoscopy symptoms has demonstrated a reduction in duration of pain with the use of probiotics. This was performed with air insufflation and the question was asked whether the effect would persist with the use of carbon dioxide to insufflate the colon. METHODS: Eligible patients were recruited and randomized to receive either probiotic or placebo capsules post colonoscopy...

BACKGROUND: Current surgical practice often leads to excision of all papillary lesions of the breast diagnosed on percutaneous biopsy. This study aims to identify a subset of patients with papillary lesions who may be able to avoid surgery. METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2015, 157 cases of papillary lesions with complete surgical excision pathology results were reviewed retrospectively to compare the clinical, imaging and pathology features. Of these, 50 patients with benign papillary lesions without atypia and 19 patients with benign papillary lesions with atypia on needle biopsy were analysed to determine the rate of upgrade to malignancy after surgery...

BACKGROUND: The survival outcomes of recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after curative resection remain unclear due to lack of clear basis for the selection of treatment option. We investigated overall survival (OS) after intrahepatic recurrence and re-recurrence free survival (rRFS) of the patients with recurrent HCC, and whether Milan criteria (MC) status at resection and recurrence impacts on OS and rRFS. METHOD: We enrolled 959 patients who experienced recurrence after primary hepatic resection for HCC...

BACKGROUND: Infection in orthopaedic surgery can be catastrophic. Increased perspiration from theatre staff has been associated with higher rates of wound contamination. Wearing lead safety gowns, which is often done during surgery to allow the use of image intensifier, may result in heavy perspiration. This study aimed to determine the feasibility of wearing a neck cooling device during surgery and whether it reduced surgeons' subjective discomfort and perspiration levels during orthopaedic procedures requiring the use of lead gowns...

BACKGROUND: This prospective randomized comparative study is designed to compare outcomes of ultrasonography-guided pigtail catheter drainage (PCD) and needle aspiration for the treatment of liver abscesses in terms of days to achieve clinical improvement, 50% reduction in cavity size and duration of hospital stay. METHODS: This is a hospital-based comparative study conducted in SMS Hospital, Jaipur, India, from May 2015 to May 2017. Sample size was calculated to be 95 subjects in each of the two groups at α error of 0...

BACKGROUND: To investigate the role of interleukin (IL)-17 in tissue and peripheral blood of perianal abscess and anal fistula. METHODS: Patients with primary perianal abscess (n = 50) admitted to Jinhua Municipal Central Hospital between March 2003 and August 2004 were enrolled. Fifty patients with mixed haemorrhoids, who showed no perianal abscess or anal fistula, were also recruited as the control. After surgery, patients were followed up for 6 months. Protein and gene expression of IL-17 was determined in surgically harvested anal tissues and peripheral blood, respectively...

REVIEW
Daniel J Youlden, Keran Sundaraj, Chris Smithers
BACKGROUND: This paper compares volar locking plates (VLPs) and percutaneous Kirschner wire (K-wire) fixation for distal radius fractures in an adult population up to and beyond 12 months. The aim of this review is to compare functional and radiological outcomes along with complication rates. A meta-analysis was performed to investigate this. METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed using the PRISMA guidelines. A search of major databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) and CINAHL) was performed up to November 2017...

BACKGROUND: Many pathogens of importance, including the staphylococcal species of concern in orthopaedics, demonstrate seasonal variations influenced by environmental factors. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of humidity as a risk factor for deep prosthetic joint infection following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in a tropical Australian hospital. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of all TKAs performed over a 13-year period was conducted at the author's institution...
