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...

PURPOSE: To analyze the alterations in corneal topography and keratometry (K) after glued transscleral-fixated intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. SETTING: Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospital, Chennai, India. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: Eyes having glued IOL implantation for aphakia or subluxated lens (>180 degrees) were included. Preoperative autorefractometer and corneal topography was performed. Intraoperative parameters, namely the type, position, and incision size, flap position, and number of sutures were noted...

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...

Current treatments for advanced solid tumors tend to be only palliative. Although radiotherapy is administered with a curative intent, radioresistance and dose-limiting toxicities pose limitations to treatment. Abexinostat, an oral pan-histone deacetylase inhibitor, demonstrated enhanced sensitivity to radiation in various solid tumor cell lines. We conducted an exploratory, phase 1, dose-escalation study of abexinostat in combination with standard hypofractionated radiotherapy in patients with advanced solid tumors treated in a palliative setting...

AIM: To evaluate endoscopic technologies in treatment of patients with colorectal cancer and severe comorbidities. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two groups of patients after endoscopic (group 1, n = 58) and open (group 2, n = 40) surgery were assessed. RESULTS: Comorbidities were observed in 90.7% patients in group 1 and 83.3% patients in group 2 (p > 0.05). Mean comorbidity index was 6.9±0.3 (2-14) and 7.1±0.7 (2-18) in both groups respectively...

PURPOSE: This study compares the use of a standard 7 mm resection length to a variable 4:1 ratio of resection length to desired elevation nomogram when performing Muller's muscle conjunctival resection surgery. METHODS: In this cross-sectional case control study, 2 groups were defined. The first underwent Muller's muscle conjunctival resection surgery with a standard 7 mm resection length and the second underwent the same surgery with a variable resection length determined by a 4:1 ratio of resection length to desired elevation nomogram...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and associated clinical factors of delayed absorption of subretinal fluid (SRF) after surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. METHODS: This study involved 36 eyes of 36 consecutive patients who underwent successful surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

PURPOSE: To evaluate perioperative and oncologic outcomes of patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC) for recurrence of urothelial carcinoma (UC) after prior partial cystectomy (PC), and to compare these outcomes to patients undergoing primary RC. METHODS: Patients who underwent RC for recurrence of UC after prior PC were matched 1:3 to patients undergoing primary RC based on age, pathologic stage, and decade of surgery. Perioperative and oncologic outcomes were compared using Wilcoxon sign-rank test, McNemars test, the Kaplan-Meier method, and Cox proportional hazards regression analyses...

Sohrab Keyhani, Mohsen Mardani-Kivi
Medial collateral ligament tears usually will be treated through non-surgical methods, but, in some cases such as those with tears at the distal insertion where the reduction could be blocked by the pes anserine tendons (Stener-like lesion), surgery will be performed. Here, we present a surgical technique in such cases. In this retrospective case series, we describe six patients diagnosed with Stener-like lesion based on clinical evaluation and imaging results. In the one-year follow-up visit, there was no complaining of pain or joint instability and full range of motion and negative valgus stress test were reported in all cases...

Perfect facial and body symmetry is an important aesthetic concept which is very difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. Yet, facial asymmetries are commonly encountered by plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Here, we present a case of posttraumatic facial asymmetry successfully treated with a unique concept of facial flap repositioning. A 25-year-old male patient visited our department with severe posttraumatic facial asymmetry. There was deviated nasal bone and implant to the right, and the actual facial appearance asymmetry was much more severe compared to the computed tomography, generally shifted to the right...

PURPOSE: No direct comparisons between extreme hypofractionation and conventional fractionation have been reported in randomized trials for the treatment of localized prostate cancer. The goal of this study is to use a propensity score matched (PSM) analysis with the National Cancer Database (NCDB) for the comparison of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for organ confined prostate cancer. METHODS: Men with localized prostate cancer treated with radiation dose ≥72 Gy for IMRT and ≥35 Gy for SBRT to the prostate only were abstracted from the NCDB...

A 69-year-old man presented to our hospital because of epigastric pain. A type 2 lesion was seen in the lesser curvature of the antrum of the stomach. A moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma(human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative) was diagnosed by biopsy. Abdominal computed tomography showed a mass shadow 52mm in diameter in the pyloric region invading the surrounding organs, but no evidence of distant metastasis. Chemotherapy with S-1 and cisplatin(SP therapy)was initiated because of a diagnosis of locally advanced gastric cancer...

PURPOSE: Through an anatomical review, the primary aim of this study was to delineate the dorsal thumb metacarpal (TM) periosteal branches of the radial artery (RA). In addition, we report here the clinical utility of a vascularized TM periosteal pedicled flap (VTMPF), supplied by the first dorsal metacarpal artery (FDMA), in a complex case of scaphoid nonunion. METHODS: Ten latex-colored upper limbs from fresh human cadavers were used. Branches of the RA were dissected under 3x loupe magnification, noting the periosteal branches arising from the FDMA...

PURPOSE: We sought to document the difference in the vitreoretinal configuration of Stage 4 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in photocoagulated and treatment naive eyes undergoing vitrectomy and to correlate it with surgical complexity. METHODS: Consecutive eyes posted for vitrectomy with Stage 4 ROP were documented preoperatively using a RetCam for the presence of peripheral traction (PT), presence of central traction just outside the arcades, and presence of traction extending to the lens...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to compare the refractive error outcomes in the eyes of premature babies with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) who underwent laser plus lens-sparing vitrectomy (LSV) in one eye and laser alone in the fellow eye. METHODS: This is a retrospective study. Fourteen babies with Stage 4A of ROP or worse who underwent laser plus LSV in one eye (Group 1) and laser alone in the fellow eye (Group 2) were followed at 2 months, 6 months, 1 year, one and a half year, and 2 years...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of the study was to introduce percutaneous reduction and fixation of paediatric talar neck fractures. The study also included a comparison between the technique and the conventional open surgery. METHODS: From October 2003 to May 2013, 23 children (group A) with closed two-part talar neck fractures were treated with percutaneous reduction. For comparison, another group of 26 children (group B) were treated with the conventional open surgery...
