INTRODUCTION: Single institution studies suggest a benefit of a week of preoperative antibiotics prior to percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). These studies are limited by lower quality methodology such as the inclusion of heterogeneous populations or the use of non-standard definitions of sepsis. The American Urological Association (AUA) Best Practice Statement recommends <24 hours of IV antibiotics, but no other data exist about the duration/benefit of preoperative antibiotics. We sought to perform a rigorous (using CONSORT guidelines), multi-institutional trial to assess preoperative antibiotics in PCNL patients at low risk of developing infections...

Introduction With increasingly limited operative resources and patient desires for minimally invasive procedures, there is a trend toward local endoscopic procedures being performed in the outpatient clinic setting. However, there remain limited data supporting a technique to adequately anesthetize the lateral nasal wall and provide patient comfort during these procedures. The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of a novel lateral nasal wall block for use in office-based endoscopic sinus surgery...

Vascular Behçet's disease (BD) would keep risk of anastomotic pseudoaneurysm due to deterioration of the disease even after vascular surgery was successfully done. Therefore, it is one of the least-welcome diseases for vascular surgeons. There still exist several points on a concept and criteria of the vascular BD which not only general practitioners but also the vascular surgeons do not understand. Clinical findings strongly suspecting vascular BD are follows; saccular aneurysms without atherosclerosis developed in younger than 50-year-old patients, superior vena cava syndrome or deep vein thrombosis in bilateral legs without apparent causes, and multiple superficial thrombophlebitis, etc...

Introduction: Surgery is performed more frequently now at days, due to the increasing incidence of melanoma and no-melanoma skin cancer. There are different opinions among dermatologic surgeons between to continue or discontinue antithrombotic therapy prior to the procedure, which increases the risk of thromboembolic events. Prophylaxis with oral antibiotics in the postsurgical period is controversial. Objective: To report the safety of surgery without suspending antithrombotic therapy and without oral antibiotic prophylaxis in dermatology surgery of patients with multiple comorbidities and polypharmacy...

Endothelial dysfunction is observed in several cardiovascular diseases, where endothelium-dependent vasodilation is impaired by oxidative stress. However, the time course of endothelial function during the perioperative period of a minor-to-moderate surgery, and the effects of atherosclerotic risk factors and employed general anesthetics on recovery of endothelial function, are unknown. Endothelial function of 30 patients was evaluated as the reactive hyperemia index (RHI) of reactive hyperemia peripheral arterial tonometry...

INTRODUCTION: Oral therapy with alpha-blockers or 5-alpha reductase inhibitors remains the most common treatment in men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). For patients who progress or fail medical therapy, the standard of care surgical treatment continues to be transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), which has long-studied and durable outcomes. Emerging, minimally invasive options for LUTS secondary to the BPH, however, have been developed over the last decade with promising results and minimal side effects typically associated with TURP, such as retrograde ejaculation and erectile dysfunction...
