BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is widely used although its clinical indications are often debated. The aim of this study is to describe our surgical experience in order to establish the safety, efficacy, feasibility of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair and to identify the factors that influence the risk of recurrence in a group of patients treated with only one type of prosthetic mesh and by the same surgical team. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 2007 and December 2016, 512 patients were admitted to the General and Urgent Surgery Unit, with diagnosis of ventral hernia...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasonic and electrosurgical energy dissectors are main dissecting devices widely used for the laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Trial sequential analyses can establish whether firm evidence favoring a specific device has been reached from accumulated literature. To explore this, we performed a meta-analysis and trial sequential analyses. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were searched from inception to October 2016. The primary outcome was operative time...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent inguinal hernias after initial repair with mesh are preferably treated via an alternative route (e.g. posterior after anterior). For recurrent inguinal hernias after an anterior repair such as Lichtenstein's, an endoscopic approach such as the total extraperitoneal or transabdominal preperitoneal technique (TEP or TAPP) is recommended if expertise is present. The TransREctus sheath PrePeritoneal (TREPP) technique is a promising open posterior technique and could be an alternative to endoscopic methods...

BACKGROUND: To date, there has been ongoing debate over whether intravertebral vacuum cleft (IVC) has the effect of therapeutic efficacy in percutaneous vertebral augmentation (PVA) for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs). OBJECTIVE: The aim of this meta-analysis was to calculate a pooled estimate of the IVCs on the effect of therapeutic efficacy of PVA for the treatment of OVCFs. METHODS: A systematic electronic literature search was performed using the following databases: PubMed, Embase and Cochrane Library; the databases were searched from the earliest available records up to June 2016...

INTRODUCTION: Liver injuries remain major obstacle for successful treatment, due to size and location of the liver. Requirement for surgery should be determined by clinical factors, most notably hemodynamical state. In this present study we tried to declare our approach to liver traumas. We also tried to emphasize the importance of conservative treatment, since surgeries for liver traumas carry high mortality rates. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Patients admitted to the Department of Emergency Surgery at Kartal Research and Education Hospital, due to liver trauma were retrospectively analyzed between 2003-2013...

Negligence claims in the UK NHS has increased over the last 30 years. The aim of this present study was determine the number of claims and the cost of litigation in Bariatric Surgery and compare it to similar other specialties. Data was received from NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) in response to Freedom of Information data request. There was a total of 7 claims, of which 4 were successful. The total pay out sum was £210,000 in 10 years. This is a very low amount compared to other surgical specialties. This low level of litigation probably indicates that the current bariatric surgical services in the NHS are delivering safe care with good patient satisfaction...

BACKGROUND: Surgical resection of the abnormal parathyroid glands is the only curative treatment for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Radioguided parathyroidectomy with technetium-99m (TC-99m) sestamibi has been successfully used in patients with PHPT. This study was designed to evaluate the results of a series of patients with PHPT who underwent minimally invasive radioguided parathyroidectomy (MIRP) using very low dose (1 mCi) of TC-99m sestamibi (MIBI) without application of intraoperative parathyroid hormone (PTH) assay or frozen section analysis...

INTRODUCTION: Optimized biocompatibility of new materials is a major requirement for transvaginal meshes for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair. Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) presented good characteristics in prior animal experiments and clinical use in humans. METHODS: Between 01/2012 and 04/2016 37 women underwent transvaginal repair of symptomatic prolapse of the anterior vaginal wall (cystocele) with PVDF-mesh in a single institution. A chart review for recurrence, continence, peri- and early postoperative complications was performed...

BACKGROUND: The treatment method for acute ischemic stroke is rapidly developing, and the effects of endovascular modalities, when used alone or in combination, needs to be studied. We aimed to identify the difference between pharmaceutical thrombolysis and multi-modal therapy (MMT) used in acute posterior circulation ischemic stroke (APCIS) patients and also to detect the predictors for successful recanalization and favorable outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients with APCIS who received thrombolytic pharmaceuticals and MMT from 2011 to 2016 was performed at the stroke center...

INTRODUCTION: Parathyroid damage or unintentional excision still affect thyroid surgery and may cause permanent hypoparathyroidism. The only way to recover the excised or ischemic gland functionality is still reimplantation. Many sites of reimplantation have been described, each of one showing both advantages and drawbacks. The aim of this study is to verify results of a new procedure called PR-FaST: Parathyroid Reimplantation in Forearm Subcutaneous Tissue, in a series of unselected patients after long-term follow-up...
