BACKGROUND: Currently, both the step-up approach, combining percutaneous drainage (PD) and video-assisted retroperitoneal debridement (VARD), and endoscopic transgastric necrosectomy (ETN) are mini-invasive techniques for infected necrosis in severe acute pancreatitis. A combination of these approaches could maximize the management of necrotizing pancreatitis, conjugating the benefits from both the experiences. However, reporting of this combined strategy is anecdotal. This is the first reported case of severe necrotizing pancreatitis complicated by biliary fistula treated by a combination of ETN, PD, VARD, and endoscopic biliary stenting...

Chylous pericardial effusion is a rarely reported complication of lung cancer surgery. Here, we report a case of an elderly man who suffered chylous pericardial effusion after radical right upper lung resection for cancer. The massive chylous effusion first occurred in the pericardium, drained to the right chest after the drainage of the hydropericardium and subsequently moved back to the pericardium again. Lymphoscintigraphy examination indicated that a chylous fistula was present in the plane of the tracheal carina...

Ureolytic bacteria are key organisms in the rumen producing urease enzymes to catalyze the breakdown of urea to ammonia for the synthesis of microbial protein. However, little is known about the diversity and distribution of rumen ureolytic microorganisms. The urease gene (ureC) has been the target gene of choice for analysis of the urea-degrading microorganisms in various environments. In this study, we investigated the predominant ureC genes of the ureolytic bacteria in the rumen of dairy cows using high-throughput sequencing...

BACKGROUND: Delayed colonic anastomosis after damage control laparotomy (DCL) is an alternative to colostomies during a single laparotomy (SL) in high-risk patients. However, literature suggests increased colonic leak rates up to 27% with DCL, and various reported risk factors. We evaluated our regional experience to determine if delayed colonic anastomosis was associated with worse outcomes. METHODS: A multicenter retrospective cohort study was performed across three Level I trauma centers encompassing traumatic colon injuries from January 2006 through June 2014...

Pancreaticoenteric anastomosis is the origin of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF). Although a variety of methods have been proposed to decrease the POPF rate, randomized controlled trials performed so far have failed to demonstrate superiority of any particular method to the others. Cattell-Warren duct-to-mucosa pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) is a widely practiced procedure. Their method is challenging, especially when the pancreatic duct is small. We assumed that the difficulty resides in the pancreatic duct becoming difficult to access when the posterior row is tied before suturing the anterior row...

Min-Keun Kim, Wonil Han, Seong-Gon Kim
Many congenital and acquired defects occur in the maxillofacial area. The buccal fat pad flap (BFP) is a simple and reliable flap for the treatment of many of these defects because of its rich blood supply and location, which is close to the location of various intraoral defects. In this article, we have reviewed BFP and the associated anatomical background, surgical techniques, and clinical applications. The surgical procedure is simple and has shown a high success rate in various clinical applications (approximately 90%), including the closure of oroantral fistula, correction of congenital defect, treatment of jaw bone necrosis, and reconstruction of tumor defects...

BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) formation is the most common vascular access procedure for patients requiring haemodialysis. However, it is associated with high failure rates, influenced by vessel diameter and arterial inflow. Mode of anaesthesia may affect these factors, and subsequently AVF maturation rates. OBJECTIVE: To perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effect of anaesthesia type for autologous primary radiocephalic or brachiocephalic AVF creation on subsequent fistula failure rates...

Temporary abdominal closure (TAC) techniques are routinely used in the open abdomen. Ideally, they should prevent evisceration, aid in removal of unwanted fluid from the peritoneal cavity, facilitate in achieving safe definitive fascial closure, as well as prevent the development of intra-abdominal complications. TAC techniques used in the open abdomen were compared with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) to identify which was superior. A systematic review was conducted using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis guidelines involving Medline, Excerpta Medica, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, and <ext-link ext-link-type="uri" xlink:href="http://Clinicaltrials...

Anastomotic leakage is a major postoperative complication after intestinal surgery leading to increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Omentoplasty has been evaluated to prevent anastomotic leakage in several studies. However, there is no consensus regarding whether or not omentoplasty should be used to decrease the rate of anastomotic leakage after intestinal resection. A prospective, randomized study was conducted to evaluate the influence of omentoplasty on anastomotic leakage after intestinal resection...

Granulocytic Sarcoma (GS) is a rare condition with a wide list of differential diagnosis and debatable guidelines of treatment in different cancer centers. Most of literature recommended systemic chemotherapy with or without radiation therapy and small role of surgery. One of the rarest sites for myeloid sarcoma is hard palate, which usually worsen the quality of life of the patient due to difficulty in feeding, drinking and speaking. We are reporting a case of hard palatine fistula caused by granulocytic sarcoma, in which we tried to get local control of disease with 3 dimension conformal radiation therapy 3DCRT and surgery with systemic control with chemotherapy using recommendation of multidisciplinary team and targeting mainly patient quality of life...
