Groin hernia in adults is a frequent affection in digestive surgery. Many repair techniques have been described to date, including laparoscopic surgery. Two methods are quickly adopted by the various practitioners for the surgical treatment of groin hernia using laparoscopy: laparoscopic totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) technique and laparoscopic transperitoneal inguinal hernia repair (TAPP). This study focused on the feasibility of groin hernia repair using coelioscopy, aiming to describe its outcomes in terms of recurrence and postoperative pain...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Outcomes after TKA surgery are supposed to be related to the intensity and type of post-operative rehabilitation. Aim of this paper is to describe our early rehabilitation protocol following TKA with mini-invasive surgery in the immediate post-operative period and analyze functional recovery and changes in pain scores in these patients. METHODS: in this observational study, data were collected on 215 total knee arthroplasty patients referred to Orthopedics and Traumatology inpatient ward from July 2012 to January 2014, treated with the same early start rehabilitation protocol...

BACKGROUND: Different techniques have been reported for the exploration and repair of femoral artery (FA) in patients who undergo minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) and endovascular aortic surgery. We used a modified approach alternative to the conventional technique (group CT) since May 2013, which specifies a shorter groin incision and diamond-shaped hemostatic purse sutures for arteriotomy closure without the requirement of cross-clamping (group PT [purse suture technique]) and evaluated early outcomes and the complication profiles of the 2 techniques for femoral access...

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.

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...
