Lin Xie, Zhi-Gang Zhao, Shu-Jun Zhang, Ya-Bin Hu
BACKGROUND: This meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety in percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) and conservative treatment (CT) for osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs). METHODS: The authors searched RCTs in electronic databases (Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, PubMed, EMBASE, Medline, Embase, Springer Link, Web of Knowledge, OVID and Google Scholar) in a timeframe from their establishment to Feb 2017...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between filling proportion of bone cement in the vertical direction and incidence of recollapse in the augmented vertebrae after vertebral augmentation. METHODS: Fifty-one patients (51 vertebrae) who had operations between January 2014 and July 2016 with a mean age of 78.10 years were included. All patients in our department of spine surgery were advised to have follow-up care every 6 months...

#4
REVIEW
Wenbin Gong, Junsheng Li
Esophagojejunal anastomotic leakage (EJAL) is considered to be one of the most serious complications after total gastrectomy (TG), despite improvements in surgical instruments and technique. The occurrence of EJAL would cause poorer quality of life, prolonged hospital stay, and increased surgery-related costs and mortality. Although there is ever-increasing knowledge about EJAL, the optimal management is controversial. In the present review, we aim to demonstrate the effective management by focus on the possible risk factors, potentially useful preventive strategies, and several kinds of treatments in esophagojejunal anastomotic leakage after total gastrectomy for gastric cancer...

PURPOSE: To analyze the outcomes of j-pouch and side-to-end anastomosis in rectal cancer patients treated with laparoscopic hand-assisted low anterior resection. METHODS: Prospective trial on cases randomized to have a colonic j-pouch or a side-to-end anastomosis after low anterior resection. Demographics, characteristics of disease and treatment, perioperative results, and functional outcomes and life quality were compared between the groups. RESULTS: Seventy four patients were randomized...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate feasibility of sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping by using near-infrared fluorescent imaging and indocyanine green (NIR/ICG) integrated laparoscopic system in clinically uterine-confined endometrial cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with clinically early-stage endometrial cancer were included in this prospective study. ICG was injected to the uterine cervix and NIR/ICG integrated laparoscopic system (Spies Full HD D-Light P ICG technology, Karl Storz, Tuttlingen, Germany) was used during the operations...

INTRODUCTION: Here, a modification during gastric pouch forming was implemented in laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). We aimed to examine the feasibility of metallic clip closure for the remaining small stomach bridges (<1 cm) between the pouch and the remnant stomach. METHODS: During pouch creation, after the last stapler firing, the remaining small bridge was closed with clips and divided instead of using a new stapler. Metallic clips for this aim were used in 41 of 520 LRYGP between September 2010 and January 2017...

BACKGROUND: We investigated cervical soft tissue recurrence of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) after thyroidectomy, and these lesions exhibited no evidence that they were lymph nodes (LNs). METHODS: Between January 2012 and April 2016, consecutive 6308 patients underwent thyroid surgery for DTC at our center. Among them, we encountered 21 patients with recurrent cervical soft tissue lesions, none of whom had previously undergone fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB)...

BACKGROUND: This meta-analysis aimed to perform a meta-analysis to investigate the impact of additional intravenous acetaminophen for pain management after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). METHODS: We conducted electronic searches of Medline (1966-2017.07), PubMed (1966-2017.07), Embase (1980-2017.07), ScienceDirect (1985-2017.07) and the Cochrane Library. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and non-RCTs were included. The quality assessments were performed according to the Cochrane systematic review method...

REVIEW
Shahryar Noordin, Salim Allana, Bassam A Masri
Insufficiency fracture care requires more than surgery to ensure rapid and strong union with diminished chance of future fractures. The FLS program provides an opportunity to treat osteoporosis from a public health perspective rather than leaving this to the whims of individual physicians. This is achieved by providing a seamless integration of care by health care providers, nursing staff and administration. The FLS can be adapted to any model of care including academic health systems. FLS provides a holistic approach to identify patients as well as to provide evidence-based interventions to prevent subsequent fractures...

BACKGROUND: Kidney transplantation represents the treatment of choice for end-stage renal disease (ESRD). However, nephrectomy bears certain short- as well as long-term risks for the healthy, voluntary donor. As obesity is increasing and is a known risk factor for surgical complications, we wanted to assess the impact of BMI on perioperative complication rates and renal function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively assessed patients undergoing living donor kidney nephrectomy at our institution...

BACKGROUND: In many centres in Australia, CT scan of abdomen and pelvis (CTAP) is a commonly used staging investigation to detect asymptomatic synchronous metastasis (ASM) in newly diagnosed breast cancer. However, its routine use is not supported by strong evidence either on its cost effectiveness or on specificity. Despite contrary recommendations by international guidelines this staging investigation is widely used among new early breast cancers(EBC). This retrospective study aims to assess the cost effectiveness and usefulness of CTAP in new breast cancers...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Several procedures for the treatment of complete rectal prolapse (CRP) exist. These procedures are performed via the abdominal or perineal approach. Perineal procedures for rectal prolapse involve either resection or suspension and fixation of the rectum. The present review aimed to assess the outcomes of the perineal resectional procedures including Altemeier procedure (AP), Delorme procedure (DP), and perineal stapled prolapse resection (PSR) in the treatment of CRP...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic inguinal pain due to the inguinal hernia repair is still a serious consideration, and its incidence is evident in approximately 3%-6% of the patients. The purpose of this study was performed to assess the prevalence of chronic pain after inguinal hernia repair and the effects on the quality of life in our patient. METHODS: The records of the patients who were 18 years of age or older and had had an inguinal hernia repair under spinal anesthesia after receiving a diagnosis of inguinal hernia at this hospital from 2009 to 2015 were accessed through the hospital's data system...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) seems to be an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis (PF) and is assumed to be safe. No systematic reviews have been published that specifically studied the complications and side effects of ESWT in treating PF. Aim of this systematic review is therefore to evaluate the complications and side effects of ESWT in order to determine whether ESWT is a safe treatment for PF. METHODS: For this systematic review the databases PubMed, MEDLINE, Cochrane and Embase were used to search for relevant literature between 1 January 2005 and 1 January 2017...
