BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic Roux Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) are the most commonly performed bariatric procedures. Improvement in techniques and perioperative management of patients have resulted in shorter hospital stay and reduced overall costs. Many post-operative protocols aspire to post-operative day 1 discharge with studies showing reduction in length of stay without increasing complications. In this study, we investigate the factors predictive of early discharge at our high-volume bariatric centre...

BACKGROUND: Navigated total hip arthroplasty (THA) can employ intra-osseous pins through a separate incision to secure reference arrays to the iliac crest. This study is the first to investigate the consequences of pin use in THA in vivo. METHODS: A prospective, consecutive series of 43 patients presenting for navigated THA were included. Two temporary 125 × 4 mm Schanz screws were inserted into the iliac crest for the attachment of a reference array. Telephone follow-up occurred at 6 and 12 weeks post-operatively...

BACKGROUND: To address emergency department overcrowding operational research seeks to identify efficient processes to optimize flow of patients through the emergency department. Vertical flow refers to the concept of utilizing and assigning patients virtual beds rather than to an actual physical space within the emergency department to care of low acuity patients. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of vertical flow upon emergency department efficiency and patient satisfaction...

The aim of this study was to improve clinical decision-making for the identification of persistent ectopic pregnancy after linear salpingostomy. The study identified 854 laparoscopic salpingostomies performed between 2011 and 2016; 794 had a human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) <10 mIU/ml documented in the electronic medical record within 1 month after surgery ('successes'). Sixty (7%) received either methotrexate or repeat surgery for persistent ectopic pregnancy ('failures'). Five hundred and seventeen, including 46 'failures', had two or more immediate post-operative HCG measurements available...

Effective postoperative analgesia after emergency caesarean section is important because it provides early recovery, ambulation and breast-feeding. The ultrasound-guided erector spinae plane block has been orginally described for providing thoracic analgesia at the T5 transverse process by Forero et al. We performed post-operative bilateral erector spinae plane blocks with 20ml bupivacaine 0.25% at the level of the T9 transverse process in a pregnant woman after caesarean section. In this report, we described that bilateral erector spinae plane block at T9 level provides effective and long-lasting postoperative analgesia for lower abdominal surgery...

BACKGROUND: We hypothesized that administration of IV acetaminophen alone would reduce the opioid consumption in post-operative colorectal surgery and reduce the side effects of narcotics. METHODS: Patients were randomized to receive either IV acetaminophen or placebo in addition to opioid PCA. Primary endpoints evaluated were opioid consumption and pain visual analogue scale score (PVASS) during first 48 h post-operatively. Secondary endpoints evaluated were time of return of GI function (ROGIF), time to diet ordered (TTDO), length of hospital stay (LOHS), and occurrence of ileus...

INTRODUCTION: Due to complex anatomical considerations, results of cementless-stem total hip arthroplasty (THA) in hip fusion remain controversial compared with conventional THA. We therefore aimed to analyse 3D anatomy of the fused hip based on pre-operative computed tomography (CT) scans, functional outcomes based on the Harris Hip Score (HHS) and the Hip Disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (HOOS), modifications of hip anatomy based on post-operative standardised radiography, and determine complication rate and long-term survival based on Kaplan-Meier analysis...

Endobarrier® is a minimally invasive, reversible endoscopic treatment for obesity. It provokes malabsorption along 60 cm of the small intestine, which can contribute to the development of vitamin deficiencies and to changes in bone mineral density (BMD). To determine the prevalence of nutrient deficiencies, changes in body composition and BMD during the first year after Endobarrier® placement. Twenty-one patients with type 2 diabetes met inclusion criteria. Levels of vitamins, micro and macronutrients were assessed prior and at 1, 3 and 12 months post-operatively...

Hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) represents a major risk factor of early graft dysfunction and acute/chronic rejection as well as a key obstacle to expanding the donor pool in orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Although glucocorticoid receptor (GR) signaling may enhance cytoprotective programs, clinical use of glucocorticoid is limited due to adverse effects, while clinical relevance of GR-facilitated cytoprotection in OLT remains unknown. We aimed to evaluate the significance of hepatic GR in clinical OLT and verify the impact of recombinant human relaxin (rhRLX), which may function as GR agonist in tissue/disease-specific manner...

Avoidance of hypotony in the early post-operative phase following glaucoma drainage device surgery is paramount, if serious complications are to be avoided. Current strategies of preventing early hypotony are either a valve mechanism, as those found in Ahmed Glaucoma Valve or flow restrictor as used in Baerveldt or Molteno implants. The Ahmed glaucoma valve has a pre-tensioned valve which opens and closes at the pre-determined level of intra-ocular pressure. Although the opening and closing pressure can be slightly inconsistent, coinciding with the change of material used in the plate construction, the reliability appears to have improved in recent years...
