BACKGROUND: Little is known regarding the impact of operative time on adverse events following arthroplasty. The present study tests for associations between a 15-minute increase in operative time and the occurrence of adverse events following primary total joint arthroplasty. METHODS: Patients undergoing primary total hip or knee arthroplasty during 2006-2013 were identified in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program. Operative time (as a continuous variable) was tested for association with perioperative outcomes using multivariate regression...

BACKGROUND: Preserving the integrity of the eyelid margin in eyelid reconstruction remains a challenge for plastic surgeons. In 1976, Hübner described a technique to repair full-thickness eyelid defects using a tarsomarginal graft covered with a local flap. This simple technique addresses both functional and aesthetic requirements of eyelid reconstruction by using tissue from the contralateral eyelid. The aim of this study was to determine the appropriate role of this uncommon technique in eyelid reconstruction...

Cerebrospinal fluid leakage following meningomyelocele surgery is a frequent complication in the wound-healing period and is associated with wound dehiscence. CSF loss can cause severe hyponatremia, especially in the newborn and early infancy periods when dietary sodium content is relatively low. Hyponatremia in the newborn period can result in adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. In addition, hyponatremia's cerebral effects can increase complications in neurosurgery patients. The authors present the case of a newborn in whom CSF leakage from the operative site and severe hyponatremia developed following meningomyelocele surgery...

Background: Rectovestibular fistula (RVF) is the most common type of anorectal malformations in females. The need for a diverting colostomy during correction of defect has ignited a heated debate. In this study, we reviewed the girls with RVF that had been treated by either one or two stage procedure in the past 10 years in our institution to define whether one stage or two stage procedures is safer and more beneficial for the patients. Materials and Methods: Seventy girls with RVF that had been operated from January 2005 to January 2015 were studied retrospectively...

Background Hartmann's procedure is a commonly performed operation for complicated left colon diverticulitis or malignancy. The timing for reversal of Hartmann's is not well defined as it is technically challenging and carries a high complication rate. Methods This study is a retrospective audit of all patients who underwent Hartmann's procedure between 2008 and 2014. Reversal of Hartmann's rate, timing, American Society of Anesthesiologists grade, length of stay and complications (Clavien-Dindo) including 30-day mortality were recorded...

OBJECTIVES: Throat packs are commonly used to prevent ingestion or aspiration of blood and other debris during cleft lip/palate surgery. However, dislodgement or (partial) retainment after extubation could have serious consequences. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of omitting pharyngeal packing during cleft lip/palate surgery on the incidence of early postoperative complications in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on all children who underwent cleft lip/palate surgery at the Wilhelmina Children's Hospital...

Aims: To report current results of preputial flap onlay urethroplasty using the principle of the total preputial flap (TPF) for the one-stage repair of mid- and proximal hypospadias. Methods: This study was a retrospective chart review of patients in a prospectively kept database of all hypospadias operations performed at two institutions from January 1 2011 to August 2017. Inclusion criteria: all patients who underwent hypospadias repair using a preputial only flap urethroplasty based on the principle of the TPF...

Purpose: We aimed to compare skin closure techniques, standard (intermittent mattress) and continuous subcuticular sutures, following Limberg flap procedure. Methods: From July 2013 to July 2015, 92 patients with sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease were prospectively randomized into 2 groups consisting of 46 patients for both. Patients underwent sinus excision and closure with Limberg flap; continuous subcuticular suture was used in subcuticular group (SG) and intermittent mattress sutures were used in mattress group (MG) for skin closure...

INTRODUCTION: Bariatric surgery results in massive weight loss, leaving many patients with redundant skin that can cause significant physical and psychosocial limitations. We sought to identify variables associated with postoperative complications and adjuncts associated with the mitigation of postoperative complications. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of all post-bariatric surgery patients who underwent panniculectomy over a 10-year period. RESULTS: Total 706 patients included...

BACKGROUND: Surgical residency training programs in the United States are modeled on the principle of graduated responsibility. Residents are given greater responsibility and autonomy in the operating room and during perioperative care as they gain surgical skills and progress through their training. The impact of this method of surgical training on patient outcomes remains unknown. The purpose of this study is to compare early patient morbidity and mortality after bariatric surgery in cases with and without resident participation using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database...

BACKGROUND: Even though wound dehiscence is a surgical complication, under certain medical conditions, repetition of the laparotomy (LT) (relaparotomy) can become inevitable. In addition to the risks associated with this surgical operation, relaparotomy can interfere with the tissue healing and contribute to the development of chronic wounds. METHODS: In an experimental relaparotomy wounding model, this study investigated the impact of repeated surgery on wound healing and on the immune cells of myeloid origin...

Background: The role of wound drainage after total knee arthroplasty is still considered controversial as although closed drainage systems have been believed to be effective in decreasing the post-operative complications, they could also facilitate the bleeding and increase the rate of transfusion and infection. We have conducted the current study to compare the outcomes superficial subcutaneous, one deep, and two deep drain techniques after total knee arthroplasty. Methods: Between 2014 and 2015 sixty consecutive patients were prospectively selected and underwent primary total knee arthroplasty...

The guided bone regeneration (GBR) technique is often applied to provide sufficient bone for ideal implant placement. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether GC membrane®, which has already been used for guided tissue regeneration (GTR), can also be available for GBR. Twenty-three implants in 18 patients were evaluated in the study. All patients underwent implant placement with GBR using GC membrane®. Cone-beam computed tomography was performed at 13-30 weeks after surgery and the amount of augmented bone was assessed...

INTRODUCTION: Pyloromyotomy is the standard care for hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. The traditional approach for this procedure is a right upper quadrant transverse incision, although other "open" approaches, such as circumumbilical or periumbilical incision have been described. The more recent approach used is laparoscopic pyloromyotomy (LP), but experience feedback is still debated and its benefits remain unproven. The aim of this study was to make a review of all our LP procedures with an objective evaluation according to the literature...

BACKGROUND: Reducing post-sternotomy mediastinitis (PSM) requires incorporating multiple methods. However, the independent effects of these measures are not well studied. AIM: To evaluate the independent effect of preoperative disinfection using isopropyl alcohol (IPA)-chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) and the topical application of a retrosternal gentamicin collagen sponge at wound closure on reducing PSM. METHODS: From October 2012 to August 2014, 2340 patients were included in this prospective, controlled registry...
