BACKGROUND: Reoperation rates after breast-conserving surgery are highly variable and the best techniques for optimizing margin clearance are being evaluated. The aim was to identify the reoperation rate at our centre and identify influential factors, including a change in guidelines on margin recommendations and the introduction of in-theatre specimen X-ray. METHODS: A retrospective review of medical records was undertaken to identify 562 patients who underwent breast conservation at The Royal Melbourne Hospital and Royal Women's Hospital between 2013 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Neurolytic celiac plexus block (NCPB) is an effective method of palliative pain control. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of the laparoscopic NCPB versus open approach. METHODS: Eight patients (Group A) underwent diagnostic laparoscopy which revealed an inoperable pancreatic cancer. Forty millilitres of solution (20 mL of 95% ethanol mixed with 20 mL of xylocaine) was injected into either side of para-aortic soft tissue...

BACKGROUNDS: The aim of this study was to systematically analyse and perform a meta-analysis on the current available literature comparing the fusion rates and complications associated with use of autograft, allograft and bone substitutes to supplement posterior spinal fusion for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). METHODS: The electronic databases including Embase, PubMed, Medline, Cinahl and Cochrane Library were searched to identify relevant studies. A total of 12 studies with 2389 patients were included for meta-analysis...

REVIEW
Christian Beardsley, Kilian Brown, Charbel Sandroussi
Surgeons play a significant role in the treatment of patients with many types of cancer, including the management of advanced and recurrent disease after long periods of apparent remission. The recently introduced Victorian Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) Act represents a shift in paradigm in Australian medical practice. To be eligible for VAD, the new legislation requires patient assessment by a physician with at least 5 years post-fellowship experience and relevant expertise in the patient's condition. Given many specialist surgeons' experience in managing advanced and often incurable malignancy, it is likely that many will receive referrals for assessment for VAD...

BACKGROUND: This is a retrospective review of prospectively collected data on our hospital, a Level 1 trauma centre, where stable patients with single abdominal stab wounds are considered for non-operative (conservative) management if they fulfil the criteria with the aid of computed tomography. The aim is to review our current approach in managing these patients. METHODS: Patients' data were obtained from January 2005 to June 2016. All injuries classed as assault or self-harm by sharp object in Injury Severity Score body region 4 were included...

REVIEW
Jakob Köstenbauer, Philip G Truskett
Small bowel obstruction is a common and significant surgical presentation. Approximately 30% of presentations will require surgery during admission. The great challenge of adhesive small bowel obstruction (ASBO) management is the early detection of silent intestinal ischaemia in patients initially deemed suitable for conservative therapy. Recent literature emphasizes the effectiveness of computed tomography enterography and water-soluble contrast studies in the management of ASBO. Low-volume undiluted water-soluble contrast has been shown to have both triage and therapeutic value in the management of ASBO...

BACKGROUND: People with comorbid mental illness have poorer health status and disparate access to healthcare. Several studies internationally have reported mixed findings regarding the association between mental illness and surgical patient outcomes. This study examines the surgical outcomes in people with decompensated serious mental illness (SMI) within the setting of the Australian universal healthcare system. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study involving elective overnight surgical patients aged 18 years and above who attended a large public tertiary referral hospital in Sydney, Australia, between 2010 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Numerous otoplasty techniques have been described in the literature to correct prominent ears; however, few have focused on the complication rates. We reviewed our experience aiming to assess peri-operative care requirements and complication rates. METHOD: We conducted a retrospective review of 207 otoplasty procedures performed in 119 patients over a 5-year period (2009-2014) at the Women's and Children's Hospital, Adelaide. Information pertaining to demographic details, length of stay, otoplasty technique and complications (early and late) were obtained...

BACKGROUND: Intestinal volvulus is a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when loops of bowel twist around its supporting mesentery and associated vasculature. Clinicians often rely on various radiological investigations for prompt diagnosis to avoid complications such as bowel infarction. This review assesses the clinical reliability of the ultrasonographic whirlpool sign (WS) in the diagnosis of intestinal volvulus. METHODS: In adherence with the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-analyses) statement, a systematic search of BMJ Best Practice, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, EMBASE, Google Scholar, PubMed, Scopus and Web of Science databases was performed (August 2017), using relevant search terms...

BACKGROUND: To quantify the incidence and timing of second hip fracture, and to evaluate the relative impact of comorbidities on risk of second hip fracture. METHODS: Hospitalization records for individuals aged ≥65, admitted to a New South Wales hospital for fall-related hip fracture between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2009 were linked. Comorbidities were identified from the records using a 1-year look-back period. To calculate second hip fracture rates, individuals were followed until death, fracture or end of study period (31 December 2012)...
