BACKGROUND: Involvement status of lymph node (LN) is one of the most important prognostic factors for esophagogastric junction (EGJ) adenocarcinoma. However, the prognostic value of the number of examined LNs remains unclear in node-negative (pN0) Siewert type II EGJ adenocarcinoma. METHODS: A cohort of 262 patients who underwent curative surgery for pN0 Siewert type II EGJ adenocarcinoma from January 2000 to August 2013 were retrospectively analyzed from high-volume center database...

OBJECTIVE: It was hypothesized that monitoring end-tidal sevoflurane (ETS) during endoscopic surgery could reduce the incidence of intraoperative awareness in patients undergoing general anesthesia. Herein, the incidence of intraoperative awareness and other correlative factors was recorded and compared. METHODS: Two thousand five hundred ASA I-III patients aged 18-80 years who underwent general anesthesia were randomly divided into 2 groups (n = 1250): routine care group (R) and ETS concentration group (E)...

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the clinical applicability of 3-dimensional CT angiography (3D-CTA) in evaluating the anatomic variations of inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) and left colic artery (LCA), to help make pre-operative strategies of rectal cancer surgery. METHODS: 188 patients with abdominal and pelvic contrast-enhanced CT scan were retrospectively enrolled and 3D-CTA was reconstructed. The origin and branching patterns of IMA, tracking patterns of LCA, intersectional patterns among IMA, LCA and inferior mesenteric vein (IMV) were examined, and their associations with clinical features were analyzed...

STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study PURPOSE: To explore the risk factors for reintubation after airway obstruction following anterior cervical surgery. STUDY BACKGROUND: Anterior cervical surgery is an effective surgical therapy for cervical spine disorders. As the anterior approach is adopted more frequently, some rare postoperative complications come under the spotlight, among which, airway obstruction is extremely detrimental. However, the risk factors and the pathogenesis of the airway obstruction still remain unknown...

BACKGROUND: According to the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) guidelines, every patient diagnosed with ovarian cancer (OC) should undergo a complete staging procedure to adequately assess tumor spread. The role of lymphadenectomy in the initial management of primary early mucinous ovarian cancer (MOC) remains unclear. OBJECTIVE: To describe the prevalence of pelvic and para-aortic node metastases in MOC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of patients with MOC treated at our Institute during January 2005 to December 2011 were assessed...

BACKGROUND: laparoscopic appendectomy(LA) has proved to be a safe alternative to open appendectomy(OA) in uncomplicated appendicitis; however, the feasibility of LA for complicated appendicitis(CA) has not been conclusively determined. OBJECTIVES: To assess the feasibility and safety of LA for CA through a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS: A literature search in PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and web of Science was performed for eligible studies published from the inception of the databases to January 2016...

BACKGROUND: To determine the optimal local treatment modalities in stage IB-IIA adenocarcinoma (AC) of the uterine cervix and assess the impact of tumor size in the clinical outcomes. METHODS: Patients with a primary diagnosis of stage IB-II cervix AC between 1988 and 2013 were identified using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. Cox regression analyses were performed to analyze the effect of local treatment modalities on cause-specific survival (CSS) and overall survival (OS)...

BACKGROUND: Acute Achilles tendon rupture (AATR) is a frequent injury occurring dominantly in young to middle-aged males. Outcomes and complications between percutaneous and open repair are still controversial. Thus, the purpose of this meta-analysis is to evaluate the outcomes and complications of these two operative methods. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We searched multiple databases: PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library up to October 2016. Two reviewers independently screened the studies for eligibility, evaluated the quality and extracted data from eligible studies, with confirmation by cross-checking...

BACKGROUND: Identifying risk factors for conversion from laparoscopic to open appendectomy could select patients who may benefit from primary open appendectomy. We aimed to develop a predictive scoring model for conversion from laparoscopic to open based on pre-operative patient characteristics. METHODS: A retrospective review of the State Inpatient Database (2007-2011) was performed using derivation (N = 71,617) and validation (N = 143,235) cohorts of adults ≥ 18 years with acute appendicitis treated by laparoscopic-only (LA), conversion from laparoscopic to open (CA), or primary open (OA) appendectomy...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leakage following esophageal surgery is a major contributor to mortality. According to the national database leakage occurs in 20% of esophagectomies carried out in the Netherlands. Therefore anastomotic leakage has been the topic of many studies. However, studies discussing application of tissue adhesives for either prevention or management of anastomotic leakage are limited. This article systematically reviewed all available literature on the potential use of tissue adhesives in esophageal surgery...

Acute appendicitis is the most common condition that presents with an acute abdomen needing emergency surgery. Despite this common presentation, correctly diagnosing appendicitis remains a challenge as clinical signs or positive blood results can be absent in 55% of the patients. The reported proportion of missed diagnoses of appendicitis ranges between 20% and 40%. A delay or mis-diagnosis of appendicitis can result in severe complications such as perforation, abscess formation, sepsis, and intra-abdominal adhesions...

BACKGROUND: The sepsis in intersphincteric space has important role in pathogenesis of most complex fistula-in-ano. This sepsis is like a small abscess in a closed space. This closed space needs to be drained adequately and then kept open for the fistula-in-ano to heal properly. The aim was to lay open and drain the intersphincteric space through internal opening via transanal approach. This has been tried in submucosal and intersphincteric rectal abscesses but has never been tried in complex fistula-in-ano...

INTRODUCTION: Routine splenic flexure mobilization (SFM) has been previously recommended to ensure an adequate length for a tension free anastomosis during resection for diverticulitis. We sought to evaluate the role of selective SFM for diverticulitis, and its impact on outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of elective colectomies at a tertiary care center (2007-2015) for left-sided diverticulitis were identified from the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program...

BACKGROUND: The use of a self-expanding nitinol framed prosthesis (ReboundHRD(®)) for totally extraperitoneal laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (TEP-IHR) could solve issues of mesh shrinkage and associated pain. We prospectively evaluated the use of the ReboundHRD(®) mesh for TEP-IHR. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patients who underwent a TEP-IHR using the ReboundHRD(®) Large mesh from April 2014 till May 2015, were included. No mesh fixation was performed. Follow-up assessments were performed at the day of surgery, 1, 2, and 7 days, 1, 3, 6, and 12 months...

BACKGROUND: Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a devastating disease that is characterized by necrotizing fasciitis of the perineal, genital, or perianal region. Broad-spectrum antibiotics are the key component of its treatment. However, there is paucity of data regarding the optimal empirical antibiotherapy for FG. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data from patients who underwent surgery for FG between January 2007 and December 2012 were retrieved from a prospectively collected departmental FG database...
