STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey study. OBJECTIVE: To determine what are the most commonly used graft materials in anterior cervical discectomy and fusion and whether the choice of graft is affected by surgeon's training, years in practice, geographic location, practice setting, or surgeon's perceived difficulty in achieving fusion. METHODS: A 23-question survey was sent out to 5334 surgeons using the Global AO Spine database. Response data was then stratified into surgeon training, years of practice, practice type, and global region...

BACKGROUND: Engagement in social media is increasing. Medical professionals have been adapting LinkedIn, a professional networking site, and Twitter, a micro-blogging service, for a number of uses. This development has been described for a number of medical specialties, but there remains a paucity of European data. A study was undertaken to measure engagement and activity of German visceral surgeons on social media platforms. METHOD: Visceral surgeons were identified from 15 regional Associations of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (Kassenärztliche Vereinigungen) opt-in registers...

PURPOSE: The initial assessment of severely injured patients in the resuscitation room requires a systematic and quickly performed survey. Whereas the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS(®))-based algorithm recommends focused assessment with sonography in trauma (FAST) among others, recent studies report a survival advantage of early whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) in haemodynamically stable as well as unstable patients. This study assessed the opinions of trauma surgeons about the early use of WBCT in severely injured patients with abdominal trauma, and abdominal CT in patients with isolated abdominal trauma, during resuscitation room treatment...

BACKGROUND: Mindfulness skills training interventions seem efficacious in increasing physical function and decreasing pain intensity in patients with chronic pain. The relationship of mindfulness and upper extremity complaints in patients presenting to orthopedic surgical practices is not known. The aim of this study was to assess if mindfulness has a relationship to physical function and pain intensity in patients with upper extremity illness. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, a total of 126 patients with a nontraumatic upper extremity condition were asked to fill out questionnaires assessing the 5 facets of mindfulness, pain intensity, and upper extremity physical function, along with clinical and demographic variables prior to their visit with the surgeon...

AIM: Peri-operative hyperglycaemia is associated with an increased incidence of adverse outcomes. Communication between primary and secondary care is paramount to minimise these harms. National guidance in the UK recommends that the glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) should be measured within 3 months prior to surgery and that the concentration should be less that 69 mmol/mol (8.5%). In addition, national guidance outlines the minimum dataset that should be included in any letter at the time of referral to the surgeons...

Lymphadenopathy can be due to multitude of causes. Owing to the high prevalence of infectious diseases in India, and malignancy being a life threatening cause for lymphadenopathy; accurate diagnosis is important in preventing delay or misdiagnosis and in improving patient care, thereby increasing longevity with quality. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is the first line investigation commonly done. Should the doctor be contented with the benign FNAC or is a lymph node biopsy needed in this age? The aims of this study are the following: (1) to study the spectral pattern of lymph node biopsies done in a surgical oncology unit of tertiary care centre, (2) to assess the yield of malignant cases from lymph node biopsy and (3) to compare the reliability of benign FNAC with lymph node biopsy...

BACKGROUND: Current surgical indications for Graves' disease include intractability to medical and/or radioablative therapy, compressive symptoms, and worsening ophthalmopathy. Total thyroidectomy for Graves' disease may be technically challenging and lead to untoward perioperative outcomes. This study examines outcomes in patients with Graves' disease who underwent total thyroidectomy and assesses its safety for this patient population. METHODS: A retrospective cross-sectional analysis was performed using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database from 2006 to 2011...

BACKGROUND: Context: Although lumbar spinal stenosis often presents as a degenerative condition, some patients present with symptoms from lifelong narrowing of the spinal canal. These patients have congenital stenosis (CS) and present with symptoms of stenosis at a younger age. CS patients often have a distinct pathophysiology with fewer degenerative changes but present with multi-level involvement. In the setting of neurological symptoms, decompression-alone while preserving stability, has been proposed for both patient populations...
