OBJECTIVE Rathke's cleft cysts (RCCs) are benign epithelial lesions of the sellar region typically treated via a transsphenoidal approach with cyst fenestration and drainage. At present, there is limited evidence to guide patient selection for operative treatment. Furthermore, there is minimal literature describing factors contributing to cyst recurrence. METHODS The authors conducted a retrospective analysis of 109 consecutive cases of pathology-confirmed RCCs treated via a transsphenoidal approach at a single center from 1995 to 2016...

The past decade has witnessed a dramatic increase in utilization of robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC). RARC has been shown to offer some perioperative benefits in terms of blood loss, transfusion rates, hospital stay, and recovery when compared with its open counterpart without jeopardizing oncologic outcomes. In this article, we review the indications, perioperative care, and describe the "Technique of Spaces" of RARC employed at our institution, and highlight the key steps for male RARC.

The aim of the study was to find out what perioperative risk factors predicted complications in patients having reconstructions with radial forearm free flaps (RFFF). We organised a retrospective study of 169 patients (mean (range) age 54 (22-86) years, 100 of whom were female) who had oral and maxillofacial tumours resected, and reconstructed with RFFF, from January 2011-December 2016. We recorded predictive variables, subdivided into: personal and clinical (sex, age, weight, coexisting conditions, history of smoking, radiotherapy, and primary lesions); haemodynamic (perioperative concentrations of haemoglobin and albumin, blood loss, blood transfusion, urinary output (ml), and rate (ml/kg/hour), and infusion rates for crystalloids and colloids (ml/kg/hour, and volumes given intraoperatively and postoperatively for 24hours); and anaesthetic and surgical (American Society of Anesthesiologists(ASA) grade, visual analogue pain score (VAS), and duration of tourniquet and operation)...

BACKGROUND: Although iodinated contrast (IC) agents are commonly used in endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), perioperative use in patients with renal dysfunction or IC allergies is avoided. Carbon dioxide (CO2 )-guided angiography is a promising alternative. We aimed to evaluate short-term and mid-term outcomes of EVAR using CO2 -guided angiography. METHODS: Three hundred and eighty-one patients who underwent EVAR from January 2012 to September 2016 were retrospectively reviewed and divided into an IC-EVAR group (n=351) and CO2 -EVAR group (n=30)...

Researchers and clinicians are frequently interested in either: (1) assessing whether there is a relationship or association between 2 or more variables and quantifying this association; or (2) determining whether 1 or more variables can predict another variable. The strength of such an association is mainly described by the correlation. However, regression analysis and regression models can be used not only to identify whether there is a significant relationship or association between variables but also to generate estimations of such a predictive relationship between variables...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aim to assess the impact of tumor size on clinical and oncological outcomes in patients undergoing laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). BACKGROUND: LLR has been shown to be feasible, safe, and oncologically efficient. However, it has been slow to develop in patients with HCC who often suffer from chronic liver disease which represents an additional challenge for the surgeon. The experience with large HCCs is even more limited...

Atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD) is a common congenital cardiac surgical problem. Over the years, younger and smaller infants are having operations for this condition before irreversible cardio pulmonary changes occur. Traditionally a single or two patch techniques have been used to repair this defect. However, in the past two decades an innovative method of modified single patch technique popularized by Dr. Graham Nunn has gained worldwide popularity. This review discusses the origin, surgical principles, technique and outcomes of this method, popularly known as Nunn or Australian technique...

Background Obesity is an increasing public health concern associated with increased perioperative complications and expense in lumbar spine fusions. While open and mini-open fusions such as transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) and minimally invasive TLIF (MIS-TLIF) are more challenging in obese patients, new MIS procedures like oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusion (OLLIF) may improve perioperative outcomes in obese patients relative to TLIF and MIS-TLIF. Purpose The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of obesity on perioperative outcomes in OLLIF, MIS-TLIF, and TLIF...
