This video provides a case report of a 16-year-old male patient who underwent bladder enlargement with a catheterized conduit under Macedo's technique. This technique involves the use of a segment of the distal ileum with a flap that is used for confection of the conduit. Key points include: 1) skin incision planning; 2) bladder release to allow a tension-free anastomosis; 3) reservoir and a conduit creation with a distal ileum; and 4) creation of a continence mechanism.

BACKGROUND: Acute appendicitis is a common pediatric surgical emergency; however, there are few grading systems to assign disease severity. The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) recently developed a grading system for a variety of emergency surgical conditions, including appendicitis. The severity of acute appendicitis in younger patients in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) is unknown. We aimed to describe the disease severity in this patient population using the AAST grading system hypothesizing that the AAST grade would correlate with morbidity, management type, and duration of stay...

Method: A total of thirty-four patients with frontal sinusitis after transfrontal craniotomy were admitted, with the symptom of purulence stuff, headache and upper eyelid discharging. The onset time was 2.6 years on average. The frontal sinus CT and MRI images showed frontal sinusitis. Twenty-seven patients were treated with endoscopic frontal sinus surgery, and seven patient was treated with combined endoscopic and traditional frontal sinus surgery...

Objective: The aim of this study is to analyze the safety of a large number cases of percutaneous dilatation tracheostomy. Method: Retrospective analyzed the clinical data of PDT (1 200 cases) and TT (326 cases) patients which were recruited. The postoperative complications were analyzed statistically. PDT and TT randomized controlled trials (PDT and TT) were conducted with 80 cases in each group. The intraoperative conditions (including operative time, intraoperative bleeding volume and incision size) and postoperative complications in the two groups were statistically analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: Intraarticular corticosteroid (IAC) injections are often used to treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthritis associated with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). One potential complication of IA therapy is heterotopic bone formation (HBF). The purpose of our study was to evaluate risk factors for HBF development in children with JIA who received IA therapy for TMJ arthritis. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of children with JIA who had received ≥ 1 IAC injection into the TMJ...

BACKGROUND: Liver Transplantation (LT) is a high-risk surgery associated with significant hemodynamic changes requiring advanced hemodynamic monitoring. Pulmonary Artery Catheter (PAC) is still considered as a gold-standard for cardiac index (CI) measurement during LT despite association with an increased risk of complications. Noninvasive impedance cardiography (ICG) could be an interesting alternative tool for CI monitoring. The aim of this study was to compare the precision and trending ability of ICG versus PAC methods during LT...

INTRODUCTION: Herein, we describe and evaluate a curved periacetabular osteotomy (CPO) via an intermuscular approach (IM-CPO) between the sartorius and iliac muscles. METHODS: Between January 2009 and January 2016, IM-CPO was performed in 17 joints (16 patients), and a traditional CPO was performed in 17 joints. The length of incision at wound closure, operative time, intraoperative blood loss, serum creatinine kinase (CK) level the day after surgery, correctional angle, walking ability assessed using the gait items of the Harris Hip Score (at 3 and 6 months after surgery), and perioperative complications were evaluated...

Task-specific dystonia is characterized by abnormal repetitive movements or postures in a specific body part that is triggered and ends with a task, such as writing. Failing medications, surgery, specifically disruption of key nuclei in the thalamus, can provide excellent symptomatic relief. Transcranial magnetic resonance (MR)-guided focused ultrasound is an emerging incision-less thermoablation technique. We describe MR-guided focused ultrasound tandem ablation of the ventral intermediate and ventralis oralis posterior nuclei in a 60-year-old patient with writer's cramp...

BACKGROUND: The 3-piece inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) is the gold standard treatment for male erectile dysfunction when other less invasive approaches are contra-indicated or unacceptable for the patient. There are currently 2 surgical approaches for IPP implantation: the penoscrotal (PS) and the infrapubic (IP) incision. AIM: To assess the most recent evidence on the impact of surgical approach for 3-piece IPP implantation in patients with erectile dysfunction...

PURPOSE: Posterior component separation (PCS) via the transversus abdominis release (TAR) procedure continues to gain popularity. However, neither the physiologic basis nor the extent of myofascial medialization after TAR is established. We aimed to assess both anterior and posterior rectus fascia (AF and PF) medialization following each step of the TAR procedure. METHODS: Ten fresh cadavers underwent PCS via TAR. Steps included midline laparotomy (MLL), retrorectus dissection (RRD), incision of the posterior rectus sheath (IPL), transversus abdominis muscle division (TAD), and retromuscular dissection (RMD)...

Sally Frampton, Roger L Kneebone
The term 'minimally invasive' was coined in 1986 to describe a range of procedures that involved making very small incisions or no incision at all for diseases traditionally treated by open surgery. We examine this major shift in British medical practice as a means of probing the nature of surgical innovation in the twentieth century. We first consider how concerns regarding surgical invasiveness had long been present in surgery, before examining how changing notions of post-operative care formed a foundation for change...

OBJECTIVE: This study compares the effect of starting intravenous oxytocin infusion early before uterine incision versus late after umbilical cord clamping on the blood loss during elective cesarean section (CS). METHODS: A single-blinded randomized clinical trial conducted on 200 pregnant women at term (> 37 weeks) gestation scheduled for elective CS were assigned to either IV infusion of 30 IU of oxytocin started before uterine incision (Group I) or started immediately after clamping the umbilical cord (Group II)...

Although there is a great need for suitable vascular replacements in clinical practice, much progress needs to be made toward the development of a fully functional tissue-engineered construct. We propose a fabrication method of engineered tubular tissue for small blood vessels via a layer-by-layer cellular assembly technique using mouse smooth muscle cells, the construction of a poly-(L-lactide-co-ε-caprolactone) (PLCL) scaffold, and integration in a microfluidic perfusion culture system. The cylindrical PLCL scaffold is incised, expanded, and its surface is laminated with the cell layers...

A negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) protocol using Hydrofera Blue® bacteriostatic foam wicks and silver-impregnated foam overlay to close midline skin incisions after emergency celiotomy was compared to primary skin closure only and traditional open wound vacuum-assisted closure management as part of a quality improvement initiative. This single-institution retrospective cohort study assessed all consecutive emergency celiotomies from July 2013 to June 2014 excluding clean wounds. Included variables were demographics, wound classification, NPWT days, and surgical site occurrences (SSOs)...

Background: Unilateral renal tumor cryoablation and contralateral radical nephrectomy of bilateral renal tumors were performed by transumbilical three-dimensional (3D) multichannel laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) surgery, in an attempt to verify the feasibility and safety of the procedure, sum up the operational experience, and evaluate the surgical outcome. Case Presentation: This was a 47-year-old female patient with a body mass index of 27.34 kg/m2 without backache, low back pain, hematuria, urinary urgency, frequent urination, dysuria, and other symptoms...
