PURPOSE: Encapsulation of the Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) plate is a common cause for postoperative elevation of intraocular pressure, especially in children. Many reports have described the outcomes of AGV revision in adults. However, the outcomes of AGV revision in children are poorly documented. The aim of this study was to determine the outcomes of AGV revision in children. DESIGN: Retrospective cross sectional study METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients less than 15 years of age who underwent AGV revision with a minimum postoperative follow-up of six months was conducted...

BACKGROUND: The ability to preoperatively predict postoperative complication risks is valuable for individual counseling and (post)operative planning, e.g. to select low-risk patients eligible for short stay surgery or those with higher risks requiring special attention. These risks however, are not well established in pituitary surgery. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of associations between preoperative characteristics and postoperative complications of endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery according to the PRISMA guidelines...

Robotic rectal surgery is becoming increasingly more popular among colorectal surgeons. However, time spent on robotic platform docking, arm clashing and undocking of the platform during the procedure are factors that surgeons often find cumbersome and time consuming. The newest surgical platform, the da Vinci Xi, coupled with integrated table motion can help to overcome these problems. This technical note aims to describe a standardised operative technique of single docking robotic rectal surgery using the da Vinci Xi system and integrated table motion...

BACKGROUND: Biliary complications continue to be the 'Achilles heel' of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The use of biliary stents in LDLT to reduce biliary complication is a controversial issue. We performed a randomized trial to study the impact of intraductal biliary stents on postoperative biliary complications following LDLT. STUDY DESIGN: Of the 94 LDLT's, that were performed during a period of 16 months, ABO incompatible transplants, left lobe grafts, ≥3 ducts on the graft and those requiring bilio-enteric drainage were excluded...

: Paravalvular leak (PVL) is an uncommon but serious complication associated with the implantation of prosthetic valves. Following aortic valve replacement, up to 5% of patients affected by PVL develop clinical symptoms of heart failure, hemolysis or both. Percutaneous treatment of PVL has emerged instead of conventional surgery, as a well tolerated and less invasive procedure but remains a challenge. We present the case of a young woman with mechanical aortic and mitral prostheses, who presented surgical aortic PVL caused by a serious frailty of native annulus, became symptomatic after 5 months and was successfully percutaneously treated with an Amplatzer Duct Occluder device...

Fate and transport of 72 chemicals in soil and groundwater were assessed by using a multiphase compositional model (CompFlow Bio) because some of the chemicals are non-aqueous phase liquids or solids in the original form. One metric ton of chemicals were assumed to leak in a stylized facility. Scenarios of both surface spills and subsurface leaks were considered. Simulation results showed that the fate and transport of chemicals above the water table affected the fate and transport of chemicals below the water table, and vice versa...

End-stage renal disease (ESRD) has become a challenging health problem worldwide. Currently, ESRD patients treated with hemodialysis mainly undergo low-flux hemodialysis, high-flux hemodialysis (HF-HD), or hemodiafiltration (HDF). The clearance of middle and large molecules is, however, quite insufficient as regards HF-HD, HDF, and on-line HDF. An unsatisfactory prognosis has led to improved dialysis technology and materials; both protein-leaking membranes and high cut-off membranes increase the clearance of uremic toxin, but in clinical application they may induce albumin loss...

We describe a case of a 65-year old man diagnosed with retinal vasoproliferative tumour secondary to posterior uveitis. The fluorescein angiography shows an interesting meteor-like leak emanating from the tumour and rising towards the superior retina in the later frames of the angiogram. Pictorially, we call it the "Retinal Meteor" and also describe the possible mechanism for this pattern of leakage.
