BACKGROUND: Forward surgical team (FST) is a highly mobile team for surgical missions in battlefield. FST training has been well held in many western countries. However, such training in Chinese army is far from satisfaction. METHODS AND RESULTS: Relying on Second Military Medical University and its affiliated hospitals, we are launching an entry-level training program for 5th grade students, in order to improve their understandings on basic concepts of FST, as well as their abilities to complete surgical missions on battlefield...

BACKGROUND: Short-term surgical relief efforts have helped close some gaps in the provision of surgical care in remote settings. We reviewed the published literature on short-term surgical missions to compare their cost-effectiveness across subspecialties. METHODS: PubMed was searched using the algorithm ["cost-effectiveness" AND "surgery" AND ("mission" OR "volunteer")]. Articles detailing the cost-effectiveness of short-term surgical missions in low and middle-income countries (LMIC) were included...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic back pain is a common problem and imaging is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment. In low-resource settings conventional myelography is a cheap alternative to MRI and CT. This study was conducted to re-examine the diagnostic reliability, effectiveness for surgical decision making and safety of conventional myelography. METHODS: The study was conducted at Tenwek Mission Hospital during June 2009 and March 2010. New patients who presented with features of radiculopathy and/or myelopathy were eligible...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to assess functional, quality of life, and satisfaction outcomes of a hand surgery short-term surgical mission (STSM) to Honduras, and determine whether patient demographics and surgery characteristics during a surgical mission correlate with outcome. METHODS: A total of 63 patients who received upper extremity surgery at a week-long hand surgery STSM to Honduras in March 2013 participated in the study. A before-after study design was used...

BACKGROUND: The vision and mission statements of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine (APM) indicate that the APM should promote excellence in clinical care for patients with comorbid psychiatric and general medical conditions by seeking to influence research, public policy, and interdisciplinary education. OBJECTIVE: As the APM owns the journal, Psychosomatics, we sought to assess whether the APM's journal was fulfilling the vision and mission of its parent organization by reviewing the content of articles published in the journal to determine whether it sufficiently addresses the various clinical care knowledge areas it seeks to influence...

This article describes an economical, versatile hand board that was conceived in Gaza during a surgical mission in the absence of commercially available hand holding devices. It was initially created to allow access and immobilization of the hand when addressing volar digital burn contractures. It has been applied subsequently during 5 further missions and now forms a standard part of our surgical kit. We present it to provide others with an easy solution should they need to release complex hand contractures and not have any assistant or instrument to immobilize the hand...

The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery FACE TO FACE database was created to gather and organize patient data primarily from international humanitarian surgical mission trips, as well as local humanitarian initiatives. Similar to cloud-based Electronic Medical Records, this web-based user-generated database allows for more accurate tracking of provider and patient information and outcomes, regardless of site, and is useful when coordinating follow-up care for patients. The database is particularly useful on international mission trips as there are often different surgeons who may provide care to patients on subsequent missions, and patients who may visit more than 1 mission site...

BACKGROUND: Frontoethmoidal encephalocele is a congenital abnormality of the anterior skull base involving herniation of cranial contents through a midline skull defect. Patency of the foramen cecum, along with other multifactorial variables, contribute to the development of frontoethmoidal encephaloceles. Due to limited resources, financial constraints, and lack of surgical expertise, repair of frontoethmoidal encephaloceles are limited in developing countries. METHODS: Between 2008-2013 an interdisciplinary team composed of neurosurgeons, craniofacial surgeons, otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons and nursing personnel, conducted surgical mission trips to Davao City in Mindanao, Philippines...

INTRODUCTION: In December 2013, France deployed more than 2,000 soldiers in Central African Republic with two main missions, to restore security and to improve the humanitarian situation. The objectives of this article were to analyze the surgical activity of forward surgical teams in Central African Republic over 2 years and to discuss features of training for deployed surgeons. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From December 5, 2013, to September 30, 2015, we retrospectively reviewed the electronic surgical database...

Early creation of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) decreases morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease and is the standard of care in the United States. However, this procedure is frequently not accessible in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We present the first reported case of successful AVF creation as part of a humanitarian assistance mission. The patient was a 51-year-old male with diabetes, hypertension, and end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis via a temporary dialysis catheter...

BACKGROUND: Most people who lack adequate access to surgical care reside in low- and lower-middle-income countries. Few studies have analyzed the barriers that determine the ability to access surgical treatment. We seek to determine which barriers prevent access to cleft care in a resource-limited country to potentially enable barrier mitigation and improve surgical program design. METHODS: A cross-sectional, multi-site study of families accessing care for cleft lip and palate deformities was performed in Vietnam...

INTRODUCTION:   Secondary or residual cleft lip and nasal deformities following primary unilateral or bilateral cleft lip repair are common. Many classification systems have been proposed to describe congenital cleft lip and palate deformities before repair. This article proposes a one-of-a-kind classification system for residual cleft deformities and describes its application to 136 cleft lip revision cases from cleft outreach missions worldwide. METHODS:   Patients' demographics and deformities were classified preoperatively, and a database of the classification was created...
