BACKGROUND: Transabdominal, preperitoneal (TAPP), laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (IHR) requires the creation of a peritoneal flap (PF) that must be closed after mesh placement. Our previous study indicated that sutured PF closure resulted in less short-term postoperative pain at 2 and 4 weeks compared to tacks and staples. Therefore, the aim of this follow-up study was to compare short-term QOL with a greater sample size and long-term QOL at 2 years by method of PF closure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective institutional hernia-specific database was assessed for all adult TAPP IHRs from July 2012 to May 2015...

Surgeons often consider that a right colectomy (RC) carries less risk than a left or sigmoid colectomy (L/SC). Our aim was to compare outcomes between RC and L/SC. Review of the Carolinas Medical Center National Surgical Quality Improvement Program data from 2013 to February 2015 was performed. Procedures were categorized as RC Versus L/SC based on current procedural terminology codes for both open and laparoscopic colectomies. Demographics and minor and major complications were evaluated using standard statistical methods...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this prospective, randomized, double-blinded controlled trial was to investigate the utility of indocyanine green fluorescence angiography (ICG-FA) in reducing wound complications in complex abdominal wall reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All consented patients underwent ICG-FA with SPY Elite after hernia repair and before flap closure. They were randomized into the control group, in which the surgical team was blinded to ICG-FA images and performed surgery as they normally would, or the experimental group, in which the surgery team viewed the images and could modify tissue flaps according to their findings...

Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction (ACPO) is a rare but often fatal disease. Herein, we present the largest study to date on ACPO. The National Inpatient Sample was queried for ACPO diagnoses from 1998 to 2011. Patients were analyzed by treatment into four groups: medical management (MM), colonoscopy alone [(endoscopy-only group) ENDO], surgery alone (SURG), or surgery and colonoscopy (SAC). Logistic regression was used to identify predictors of adverse outcomes by treatment group. There were 106,784 cases of ACPO: 96,657 (90...

BACKGROUND: Resuscitation after hemorrhage with crystalloid solutions can lead to marked acidosis and iatrogenically worsen the lethal triad. The effect of differing solutions on base deficit and lactate has been sparsely prospectively studied in humans. We sought to quantify the effect of normal saline (NS) and lactated Ringer's (LR) resuscitation in voluntary blood donors as a model for Class I hemorrhage. METHODS: A prospective randomized control trial was conducted in conjunction with blood drives...

BACKGROUND: The predictive value of the Model for End-stage Liver Disease (MELD) for mortality after hepatectomy is unclear. This study aimed to evaluate whether MELD score predicts death after hepatectomy and to identify the most useful score type for predicting mortality. We hypothesized that an increase in this score is correlated with 30-day mortality in patients undergoing hepatic resection. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was queried for hepatectomy...

Modern adjuncts to complex, open ventral hernia repair often include component separation (CS) and/or panniculectomy (PAN). This study examines nationwide data to determine how these techniques impact postoperative complications. The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was queried from 2005 to 2013 for inpatient, elective open ventral hernia repairs (OVHR). Cases were grouped by the need for and type of concomitant advancement flaps: OVHR alone (OVHRA), OVHR with CS, OVHR with panniculectomy (PAN), or both CS and PAN (BOTH)...
