BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal mesenchymal or stromal tumors (GIST) are lesions originated on digestive tract walls, which are treated by surgical resection. Several laparoscopic techniques, from gastrectomies to segmental resections, have been used successfully. AIM: Describe a single center experience on laparoscopic GIST resection. METHOD: Charts of 15 operated patients were retrospectively reviewed. Thirteen had gastric lesions, of which ten were sub epithelial, ranging from 2-8 cm; and three were pure exofitic growing lesions...

OBJECTIVE: Fascia lata is a validated source of autologous grafts, adopted by many surgical figures throughout different types of reconstructive procedures. Postoperative pain and muscle prolapse are frequent complications after harvesting fascia lata; donor site morbidity causes delayed mobilization and increased lenght of hospital stay. In our department fascia lata is used as autologous graft in reconstruction of skull base after extended endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery (EETS) and the thigh defect is usually repaired with allograft to restore tissue continuity and avoid muscle prolapse...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: One of the greatest challenges found by the intensivists in their daily activities is tissue hipoperfusion control. Blood lactate is generally accepted as a marker of tissular hypoxia and several studies have demonstrated good correlation between blood lactate and prognosis during shock and resuscitation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical utility of arterial blood lactate as a marker of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients in the post-operative period of high risk non-cardiac surgeries...

OBJECTIVE: We compared polyglecaprone (Monocryl®) and bidirectional barbed (V-Loc® 180) running sutures during urethrovesial anastomosis (UVA) in laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 92 consecutive patients underwent extraperitoneal LRP for prostate cancer. In the first 47 patients, the running UVA was performed using 3-0 monofilament polyglecaprone (Monocryl®) suture (Group 1). In the subsequent 45 patients, the running UVA was performed with the 3-0 barbed suture (V-Loc® 180) (Group 2)...

INTRODUCTION: Liver is made up of functionally indipendent parts or segments, and segmentation is based on course and ramification of blood vessels and bile ducts whereby each segment represents separate territory of the liver. Most severe complication is a postoperative liver insufficiency that demands complex treatment, is followed by high mortality and demans specific treatment including liver transpaltation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Study was designed as retrospective and included patients who underwent liver resection at Clinic for abdominal surgery of Clinical Centre University Of Sarajevo (CCUS) during period 2010-2012...

OBJECTIVE: Serum albumin levels have been used to evaluate the severity of the burns and the nutrition protein status in burn people, specifically in the response of the burn patient to the nutrition. Although it hasn't been proven if all these associations are fully funded. The aim of this retrospective study was to determine the relationship of serum albumin levels at 3-7 days after the burn injury, with the total body surface area burned (TBSA), the length of hospital stay (LHS) and the initiation of the oral/enteral nutrition (IOEN)...

The endoscopic techniques of groin hernia repair have developed tremendously over the past 10 years. There are numerous prospective randomized clinical trials comparing conventional techniques of groin hernia repair with endoscopic methods. However, it is difficult to establish a proper meta-analysis of the currently available data due to widely differing study designs. We assessed the currently available prospective randomized clinical trials comparing conventional versus laparoscopic hernia repair. We conclude that based on present data there is a clear advantage for the endoscopic techniques regarding length of hospital stay, postoperative recovery and return to normal activity...

In ambulant pediatric care, patients situations are becoming increasingly complex, because the lenght of hospital stay is reduced since the introduction of Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG). Consequently, the patients' safety is constantly becoming more important. The patients' safety is closely associated with the nurses' awareness of risks and the safety climate within the institution. This study is investigating how nurses of a pediatric outpatient service estimate the patients' safety and how that can be optimized, if necessary...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Decompressive craniectomy is the most common justification for cranioplasty. A medico-economial study based on the effective cost of the hydroxyapatite prosthesis, the percentage of autologous bone graft's loss due to bacterial contamination and the healthcare reimbursment, will allow us to define the best strategy in term of Healthcare economy management for the cranioplasties. A comparison was made between the two groups of patients, autologous bone flap versus custom-made prosthesis in first intention, based on the clinical experience of our department of neurosurgery...
