BACKGROUND: Secondary Hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) requiring parathyroidectomy (PTX) occurs more commonly in patients with progressive chronic kidney disease and in those on long-term lithium therapy. Successful PTX often results in a dramatic drop of parathyroid hormone level, relieves the patient from clinical symptoms, and reduces mortality. However, there is an ongoing debate on the optimal surgical treatment of SHPT. Currently, no clinical guidelines or trials have definitely answered the question of whether Total Parathyroidectomy (TPTX) is superior or equal to Total Parathyroidectomy with Autotransplantation (TPTX + AT)...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility of the application of the laparoscopic technique in perihilar cholangiocarcinoma. METHODS: A total of nine cases of patients who received laparoscopic perihilar cholangiocarcinoma surgery from January 2007 to May 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. The Bismuth subtypes consisted of one case of type I, three cases of type II, two cases of type IIIb, and three cases type IV. RESULTS: Radical resection was conducted in six cases: two cases (type II) with the caudate lobe resection, and two cases (type IIIb) with the left hepatectomy and caudate lobe resection...

BACKGROUND: Conservative treatment is the first line of treatment for anal fissure. The current study aimed to evaluate the impact of symptom duration on the response of anal fissure to conservative treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This prospective study was conducted on sixty patients with acute or chronic anal fissure who were treated conservatively with bulking agents, Sitz baths, and topical glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) 0.2%. Pain and constipation were assessed prior to treatment and at 6 weeks after therapy using visual analogue scale (VAS) and Wexner constipation score...

BACKGROUND: The proportion of the both serum hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis C antibody negative hepatocellular carcinoma (NBNC HCC) patients are tended to increase recently. We investigated the characteristics and surgical outcome for those patients after liver resection. METHODS: Four hundred and thirty-five NBNC patients were involved in our study. According to the results of the HBcAb in the serum, those patients were divided into HBcAb-positive subgroup (n=328) and HBcAb-negative subgroup (n=107)...

BACKGROUND: Therapeutic laparoscopy (TL) for penetrating abdominal trauma (PAT) is controversial because the management of multiple bowel injuries is challenging and the conversion rate is high. However, the laparoscopic-assisted approach (LAA) allows easy management of multiple bowel injuries but not investigated in a trauma setting. The aim of this study was to investigate its role in management of multiple bowel injuries and to compare LAA with therapeutic laparoscopy performed fully laparoscopically (FTL)...

BACKGROUND: Chemical sphincterotomy with pharmacological agents is recommended as first line therapy for chronic anal fissures (CAF). Calcium channel blockers (CCB) are associated with similar efficacy but fewer side effects compared to nitrates. However, the optimal formulation (oral versus topical) is unknown. We aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the effectiveness of oral and topical CCB in the treatment of CAF. METHODS: PubMed and Embase online databases were searched for relevant articles...

BACKGROUND: There is still a debate regarding the optimal management of bile duct injury following cholecystectomy. Our aim was to ascertain if delayed referral influenced clinical outcomes for patients with BDI treated in our institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We interrogated a prospectively maintained database, including all patients with BDI (Bismuth and Strasberg classifications) post LC managed in our unit from 2000-2014. Referrals were arbitrarily defined as early (<96 hours from the injury) and delayed (>96 hours)...

BACKGROUND: In 2013, the Declaration of Helsinki changed to mandate that all research studies involving human subjects must have a protocol registered in a publicly accessible database prior to the enrolment of the first patient, rather than just clinical trials. The objective of this work was to assess the number of research studies involving human participants published in leading journals of plastic surgery that had either published or registered a protocol with a publicly accessible database...

BACKGROUND: Economic downturn can have a wide range of effects on medicine at both individual and national levels. We aim to describe these effects in relation to surgical volume to guide future planning for physician specialization, patient expectations in the face of economic crises, or estimating healthcare expenditure. We hypothesized that because of high out-of-pocket costs, cosmetic procedure volumes would be most affected by economic decline. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted using MEDLINE, Embase, and ABI/INFORMS...

BACKGROUND: In patients without or with injured cephalic vein, using the basilic vein for creating arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the best way for hemodialysis. In order to create AVF, the basilic vein should be superficialized and lateralized. This study sought to examine outcome of relocation of basilic vein in brachiobasilic fistulas in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). METHODS: We evaluated the outcome of creation of brachiobasilic fistula with transposition of basilic vein in 27 patients (14 males and 13 females with mean age of 60...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer in Egypt has a higher incidence in young patients compared to western countries, where the disease is more prevalent in the old age group. This difference has been attributed to higher incidence of hereditary cancers in young Egyptian patients. The aim of this study is to compare the family history criteria and pathology features of tumors in young (<40 years) and old (>40 years) Egyptian patients with adenocarcinoma of the colon and rectum. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is the analysis of our prospectively collected data on the pathology features of tumors in 313 consecutive patients (133 young, 180 old) with colorectal cancer presenting to the Department of Surgery within an eight-year period...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Electrochemotherapy is a novel ablation technique combining chemotherapeutic agents with reversible cell membrane electroporation. Previous experiences have shown its efficacy for cutaneous tumors. Its application for deep-seated malignancies is under investigation. We performed a prospective, pilot study to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of intraoperative electrochemotherapy for otherwise unresectable colorectal liver metastases. METHODS: Electrochemotherapy with bleomycin was combined with open liver resection and performed with linear or hexagonal needle electrodes according to an individualized pretreatment plan...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy and safety of the combined application of both intravenous and topical tranexamic acid versus the single use of either application in patients with total knee and hip arthroplasty. METHODS: Potentially relevant studies were identified from electronic databases including Medline, PubMed, Embase, ScienceDirect and the Cochrane Library. Patients undergoing primary total knee and hip arthroplasty were included in our studies, with an experimental group that received combined intravenous and topical application of tranexamic acid and a control group that received a single application of tranexamic acid or normal saline...

AIM: To improve survival rates in patients diagnosed with cancer in the UK, a two-week wait (2ww) referral to first appointment target and a 62 day referral to treatment target were introduced in 2004. This study analyses survival rates for patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC) by mode of referral and referral to treatment time. METHOD: A prospectively maintained database of CRC outcomes at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust was analysed. Data for patients diagnosed with CRC was analysed for survival...
