PURPOSE: To describe a modified up-and-over access technique for treatment of iliac artery aneurysms in patients with prior bifurcated stent-grafts for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). TECHNIQUE: This technique uses a coaxial 12-F flexible sheath that is docked with a through-and-through wire into a 7-F sheath advanced from the contralateral femoral approach. This maneuver allows both sheaths to be moved as a unit while maintaining position of the apex of the system as it loops over the flow divider, avoiding damage to or displacing the extant endograft...

INTRODUCTION: The type of anastomosis of the pancreas following pancreaticoduodenectomy is often attributed to the reason for pancreatic leak. Results of various randomized trials comparing pancreaticojejunostomy and pancreaticogastrostomy are conflicting one suggesting advantage over the other and vice versa. In this study we intend to critically analyze a novel technique of binding pancreaticogastrostomy following pancreaticoduodenectomy. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to see the outcome of binding pancreaticogastrostomy by evaluating the technical aspects of binding PG and study the incidence of post-operative complications...

A strategy to rapidly determine if a matched unrelated donor (URD) can be secured for allograft recipients is needed. We sought to validate the accuracy of 1) HapLogic™ match predictions, and, 2) a resultant novel Search Prognosis (SP) patient categorization that could predict 8/8 HLA-matched URD(s) likelihood at search initiation. Patient prognosis categories at search initiation were correlated with URD confirmatory typing results. HapLogic™-based SP categorizations accurately predicted the likelihood of an 8/8 HLA-match in 830 patients (1,530 donors tested)...

Introduction: The availability of rapid and short-acting intravenous and volatile anesthetics has facilitated early recovery that is why nowadays ambulatory surgery is becoming more common. If the criteria used to discharge patients from the Postanesthesia Care Unit (PACU) are met in the operating room (OR), it would be appropriate to consider bypassing the PACU and transferring the patient directly to the step-down unit. This process is known as "fast-tracking" after ambulatory surgery...

The intention of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer is to shrink the tumors in locally advanced disease and to improve the degree of cure of operation (security). Therefore, it is expected to improve quality of life and survival for patients. Additionally, neoadjuvant chemotherapy is administered based on the observable primary tumor. Thus, the timely assessment of tumor response to chemotherapeutic drugs provides a basis for subsequent treatment. Currently, however, the treatment concept of breast cancer requires whole process management...

Introduction: Radiology plays a crucial role in the emergency care setting by delivering early and precise diagnoses under pressure of time, right at the beginning of patient treatment. Although there is a need for postgraduate education in emergency radiology, most of the national bodies responsible do not offer it in a uniform fashion and a general proof of qualification is missing in Europe. Therefore, the European Society of Radiology (ESR) has founded the (Sub-)Society of Emergency Radiology (ESER), prompting them to develop a European curriculum...

There are various registries for patients with peritoneal metastases (PM) that aid pooling of data and generate evidence that dictates current clinical practice. This manuscript describes the setting up of the Indian HIPEC registry that was set up with a similar goal by a group of Indian surgeons. This is a registry for patients with PM treated with CRS and HIPEC in India. It also acts as a database for storing treatment-related information. Patients with PM from colorectal ovarian, gastric, appendiceal tumors, and other rare peritoneal tumors/metastases from rare tumors are enrolled in the registry...

U.S. guidelines recommend BRCA1/2 mutation testing for women diagnosed with high-grade ovarian cancer (HGOC) to increase recognition of carriers, but most remain unidentified and at risk. Accordingly, an approach termed "Traceback" has been proposed in which probands are retrospectively identified by testing archived pathology specimens, and family members are traced to provide genetic counseling and testing. We used population-based data to estimate the number of family members who might be contacted through such a program...
