BACKGROUND: Uterine myoma is the most common benign gynecologic tumor in reproductive-aged women. During myomectomy for women who want to preserve fertility, it is advisable to detect and remove all myomas to decrease the risk of additional surgery. However, finding myomas during surgery is often challenging, especially for deep-seated myomas. Therefore, three-dimensional (3D) preoperative localization of myomas can be helpful for the surgical planning for myomectomy. However, the previously reported manual 3D segmenting method takes too much time and effort for clinical use...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure in the USA. Identifying preoperative risk factors for prolonged postoperative hospital stay will help appropriately select patients for fast-track protocols and avoid costly readmissions. To date, there has been no large national database analysis of risk factors for prolonged length of stay following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. METHODS: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy procedures reported to the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program between 2009 and 2012 were reviewed...

As a result of the introduction of fast-track programs, the length of hospital stay after arthroplasty has decreased to a point where some patients meet the discharge criteria on the day of surgery. In several studies, well-established fast-track centers have demonstrated the feasibility of outpatient procedures in selected patients. However, in literature the term "outpatient" is sometimes also used for patients who spend one or more nights in hospital. We therefore propose to use "outpatient" solely for patients who are discharged to their own home on the day of surgery and do not have an overnight stay at either the hospital or another non-home facility...

Fasting before general anesthesia aims to reduce the volume and acidity of stomach contents, which reduces the risk of regurgitation and aspiration. Prolonged fasting for many hours prior to surgery could lead to unstable hemodynamics, however. Therefore, preoperative oral intake of clear fluids 2 hours prior to surgery is recommended to decrease dehydration without an increase in aspiration risk. In this study, we investigated the body fluid composition and hemodynamics of patients undergoing general anesthesia as the first case of the day versus the second subsequent case...

Nutrition support therapy can improve the general condition of the patient and is one of the main factors to ensure the success of the operation. Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) improves the recovery following gastrointestinal surgery by reducing postoperative stress response. The application of nutrition support in ERAS includes nutrition risk assessment before surgery and preoperative nutrition treatment for malnutrition. The time to fasting and clear liquid was shortened to 6 h and 2 h before anesthesia induction...

BACKGROUND: Children often starve for longer than recommended by current preoperative fasting guidelines. AIMS: We studied the effects of implementing a more lenient fasting regimen on the duration of clear fluid fasting, as well as the incidence of extended fasting in children. METHODS: Preoperative duration of clear fluid fasting was recorded for patients scheduled for procedures in a unit applying the standard 6-4-2 fasting regimen. This group was compared with a cohort in the same unit 1 year after transitioning to a 6-4-0 fasting regimen...

OBJECTIVE: Adjustment in the doses of opioids has been a focus of interest for achieving better fast-track conditions in cardiac anesthesia, but relatively sparse information exists on the potential effect of psychologic and behavioral factors, such as stress, anxiety, and type of personality, on anesthesia requirements and patient turnover in the cardiac recovery unit (CRU); to the authors' knowledge, this particular focus has not been systematically investigated. In this randomized study, the authors tested the hypothesis that low-dose sufentanil, compared with a standard dose, can improve fast-track parameters and the overall quality of recovery...

BACKGROUND: Acanthosis nigricans (AN) has a close relationship with obesity. It is believed that obesity and AN have the common pathophysiological basis such as hyperinsulinism. This study is aimed to observe the effect of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on body composition and insulin resistance in Chinese obese patients with acanthosis nigricans. METHODS: A total of 37 obese patients who underwent LSG in our hospital were selected for analysis. They were divided into simple obesity (OB n = 14) and obesity with acanthosis nigricans (AN n = 23) group respectively...

Presently, the standard of care for prolactinomas, a type of pituitary adenoma, is dopaminergic agents such as bromocriptine and cabergoline. However, dopaminergic agents may induce fibrosis of cardiac valves leading to valvular insufficiency, necessitating surgical treatment of prolactinoma. Fibrosis of prolactinoma can be induced by prolonged medical treatment with bromocriptine, and this usually occurs after years of treatment. In comparison to bromocriptine, there have been no reports of cabergoline-induced fibrosis of prolactinoma...

In recent years the protocols of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (E.R.A.S.) have been introduced into clinical practice and actively used. The goal of E.R.A.S. is to increase recovery, decrease complications and reduce length of stay after surgery through optimization of perioperative management. One of the key elements of E.R.A.S. is Metabolic Optimized Fast Track Concept (MOFA). It is aimed at the reduction of the period of preoperative fasting and at the activation of glucose transport inside the cell. It involves the administration of combined carbohydrate-protein-glutamine drinks which results into decreased insulin resistance in the early postoperative period...
