BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery program for pancreaticoduodenectomy have become standard care. Little is known about adherence rates and sustainability of the program, especially when pancreaticogastrostomy is used in reconstruction. The aim of this study was, therefore, to evaluate adherence rates and continued outcome, after implementation of an enhanced recovery program. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy at the Department of Surgery, Skåne University Hospital, Lund, Sweden were followed, after implementation of enhanced recovery program, October 2012...

Diagnosis of primary appendiceal adenocarcinoma (PAA) is hindered by its rarity and largely asymptomatic nature. Appendiceal diverticulosis (AD) is equally rare. We report an unusual case of PAA presenting with perforated appendiceal diverticulitis, and discuss a review of the literature about its association, and its surgical and pathological implications. A middle-aged man was admitted with right iliac fossa (RIF) pain and a corresponding tender abdominal mass for 5 days. Computerised tomography (CT) scan demonstrated a thickened appendix with 3 cm abscess at its base...

Background: Metabolic syndrome is defined as a cluster of at least three out of five clinical risk factors: abdominal (visceral) obesity, hypertension, elevated serum triglycerides, low serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and insulin resistance. It is estimated to affect over 20% of the global adult population. Abdominal (visceral) obesity is thought to be the predominant risk factor for metabolic syndrome and as predictions estimate that 50% of adults will be classified as obese by 2030 it is likely that metabolic syndrome will be a significant problem for health services and a drain on health economies...

INTRODUCTION: Small bowel malignancies are rare and often present with non-specific symptoms. Because of this, diagnosis of small bowel malignancies is often missed. PRESENTATION OF CASE: 71-year-old male presented with a four-week history of right iliac fossa pain and loss of weight. Laboratory tests showed a raised C-reactive protein, but all other pathology results and tumour-associated antigens were normal. Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen demonstrated an inflammatory mass extending laterally into the pelvic wall...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Dyspepsia is the commonest gastrointestinal (GI) adverse effect of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). The effects of preventive measures and their adherence from a real-world perspective have been little reported. METHODS: A prospective longitudinal study was conducted among outpatients with regular NSAID usage. The presence of dyspepsia (assessed by locally validated versions of the Leeds Dyspepsia Questionnaire (LDQ), gastric preventive agents (GPA) and their adherence were assessed at recruitment and two weeks later...

INTRODUCTION: Feeding tubes in burn patients are at high risk for becoming dislodged as traditional tape securement does not adhere well to sloughed skin, resulting in nutrition delivery disruption and placing patients at increased risk for iatrogenic injury upon reinsertion. METHODS: Seventy-four patients admitted to our regional burn center requiring nasoenteric nutritional support were prospectively followed. Fourty-one patients received a nasal bridle while thirty-three received traditional tape and elastic dressings...

Ventral and incisional hernias of the abdominal wall are common problems treated by surgeons around the globe. Incisional hernias are common postoperative complications of abdominal laparotomies with a reported incidence of up to 20 per cent. The increasing use of prosthetic mesh in open ventral hernia repairs necessitated the development of different operative techniques used in the repairs. It also required that surgeons become facile with placement of the mesh in different anatomical positions on the abdominal wall...

Intestinal perforation (IP) is a life-threatening gastroenterological condition requiring urgent surgical care, which may present itself as an uncommon complication following incisional hernia repair surgery, most often because of iatrogenic traumatism occurring during the procedure. However, we report a case where a spontaneous onset can be hypothesised. A 60-years-old patient underwent repair of an abdominal laparocele, through rectus abdominis muscle plasty, 5 years after development of an incisional hernia due to exploratory laparotomy for the treatment of acute appendicitis...

INTRODUCTION: Desmoid-type fibromatosis represents a rare, benign, soft tissue tumour that is locally invasive with high recurrence potential. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We encountered a case of retroperitoneal desmoid-type fibromatosis in a 45-year-old woman who presented with chief complaints of stomach ache and vomiting. She underwent total abdominal hysterectomy and left salpingo-oophorectomy due to uterine myoma and a paroophoritic cyst at 42 years of age. Abdominal computed tomography showed a 5-cm left retroperitoneal tumour and severe hydronephrosis of the left kidney...

Excessive calorie intake and physical inactivity are considered key determinants of the rapid worldwide increase in obesity prevalence, however the relationship between diet and weight gain is complex. We investigated associations between adherence to a Mediterranean diet and long-term changes in weight and waist circumference in volunteers recruited to the Italian section of the prospective European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC). We investigated 32,119 cohort members who provided anthropometric measures at recruitment and updated information on recall a mean of 12 years later...

BACKGROUND: Current practice guidelines for antimicrobial prophylaxis in surgery recommend a cephamycin or cefazolin plus metronidazole for various abdominal surgeries. In February 2016, cephamycin drug shortages resulted in a change in The Johns Hopkins Hospital's (JHH) recommendation for peri-operative antibiotic prophylaxis in abdominal surgeries from cefotetan to cefazolin plus metronidazole. The primary objective of this study was to quantify the percentage of abdominal surgeries adherent to JHH peri-operative antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines...

Bezoars are intra-luminal concretions of ingested material which accumulate within the bowel. They are termed pharmacobezoars when the constituent material is drugs. We report a 64-year-old female with abdominal pain and obstipation for 3 days. Patient had completed anti-tuberculous combination therapy for suspected abdominal tuberculosis 25 years ago. She exhibited features of shock with a right iliac fossa lump. Abdominal X-ray displayed multiple air-fluid levels with densely cluttered radio-opacities in the right lower quadrant...

BACKGROUND: Public health strategies targeting multiple healthy behaviors, rather than individual factors, have been proposed as more efficient strategies to promote cardiovascular health. However, the additive effect of multiple targets on primary prevention has not been fully characterized. OBJECTIVE: To examine how adherence to multiple healthy behaviors is associated with the presence of subclinical atherosclerosis, a measure of early cardiovascular disease...

Acute appendicitis in children requires early surgery, and a short course of antibiotics active on Enterobacteriaceae and anaerobes. Although aminoglycoside-containing 3-drug regimen have been used successfully for decades, simpler regimens with similar efficacy are increasingly used. We aimed to evaluate the impact of a switch from the combination of cefotaxime, metronidazole, and gentamicin (regimen 1), to piperacillin-tazobactam (regimen 2), as first-line regimen for complicated acute appendicitis in children...

The authors report a case of a patient with intrahepatic sarcomatous cholangiocarcinoma. A 45-year-old Thai man presented with a 3-month history of right upper abdominal pain. CT scan revealed hepatomegaly with a 6.5 cm hypovascular soft tissue density mass in the right lobe and showed mild delayed enhancement. On exploratory laparotomy, the tumor adherent to right diaphragm was found. We performed right hepatectomy, partial resection of right diaphragm, and cholecystectomy. The immunohistological results suggested "sarcomatous intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma...

Addressing unsafe abortion in developing countries may propel a rapid decline in overall maternal death. A retrospective review of patients with complicated unsafe abortion was conducted in a Nigerian Tertiary Hospital. In order to provide evidence that may inform policy changes, we describe patients' clinical profiles, abortion providers, and morbidity and mortality patterns. Of 3122 gynaecological admissions, 231 (7.4%) had unsafe abortion-related complications. The majority (53.2%) of admissions were between 16 and 25 years...
