BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing treatment for esophagogastric or esophageal cancer are exposed to a considerably high risk of malnutrition due to early obstruction of the gastrointestinal passage. Presently most of the patients undergo modern multimodal therapies which require chemoradiation or chemotherapy ahead of surgery. Therefore reconstruction of the obstructed gastrointestinal passage is considerably delayed. Surgery as the only curative option after neoadjuvant treatment is the mainstay of therapy in this setting...

Dramatic hemodynamic changes occur following resection of brain arteriovenous malformations (AVM). Transcranial Doppler (TCD) records non-invasive velocity and pulsatility parameters. We undertook a systematic review to assess AVM hemodynamics including the time course of changes in velocity and pulsatility in patients undergoing AVM resection. The review employed the Embase and Medline databases. A search strategy was designed. An initial title search for clinical series on AVM and TCD was performed followed by a search for reports on AVM and TCD...

Postoperative infectious complications are independently associated with increased hospital length of stay (LOS) and cost and contribute to significant inpatient morbidity. Many strategies such as avoidance of long periods of preoperative fasting, re-establishment of oral feeding as early as possible after surgery, metabolic control and early mobilization have been used to either prevent or reduce the incidence of postoperative infections. Despite these efforts, it remains a big challenge to our current healthcare system to mitigate the cost of postoperative morbidity...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative pain is a barrier to the quality of paediatric care, the proper management of which is a challenge. Acute postoperative pain often leads to adverse functional and organic consequences that may compromise surgical outcome. Cleft lip is one of the most common craniofacial birth defects and requires surgical correction early in life. As expected after a surgical intervention in such a sensitive and delicate area, the immediate postoperative period of cleft lip repair may be associated with moderate to severe pain...

Cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy has emerged as one of the primary modalities of treatment of diffuse peritoneal malignancies. It is a complex surgical procedure with the patients facing major and potentially life threatening alterations of haemodynamic, respiratory, metabolic and thermal balance with significant fluid losses and the perioperative management is challenging for anaesthesiologists and intensive care physicians. Though the alterations are short lived, these patients require advanced organ function monitoring and support perioperatively...

BACKGROUND: Use of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) pathways have evidenced improved outcomes in several surgical specialties. The effectiveness of ERAS pathways specific to hernia surgery, however, has not yet been investigated. We hypothesized that our ERAS pathway would accelerate functional recovery and shorten hospitalization in patients undergoing open ventral hernia repair (VHR). STUDY DESIGN: Consecutive patients undergoing open major VHR using transversus abdominis release and sublay synthetic mesh placement, with use of our ERAS pathway, were compared with a historical cohort before ERAS implementation...

BACKGROUND: During the perioperative care of infants with hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, an opioid-sparing technique is often advocated due to concerns such as postoperative hypoventilation and apnea. Although the rectal administration of acetaminophen is commonly employed, an intravenous (IV) preparation is also currently available, but only limited data are available regarding IV acetaminophen use for infants undergoing pyloromyotomy. The objective of the current study was to compare the efficacy of IV and rectal acetaminophen for postoperative analgesia in infants undergoing laparoscopic pyloromyotomy...
