AIMS: To achieve additional weight loss or to resolve band-related problems, a laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) can be converted to a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). There is limited data on the feasibility and safety of routinely performing a single-step conversion. We assessed the efficacy of this revisional approach in a large cohort of patients operated in a high-volume bariatric institution. METHODS: Between October 2004 and December 2015, a total of 885 patients who underwent LAGB removal with RYGB were identified from a prospectively collected database...

BACKGROUND: Biologic agents have contributed significantly to the management of patients with in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A significant proportion of patients with RA still require arthroplasty procedures however. It is unclear whether these agents increase the risk of post operative infection after lower limb arthroplasty . The aim of this review is to review the contemporary literature about this topic along with the recommendations from specialist societies. METHOD: A literature search was performed for articles published over the last 10 years in the English language examining the association between anti-tumour necrosis factor inhibitors and the incidence of post operative infection in patients with RA undergoing hip and knee arthroplasty procedures...

BACKGROUND: Standard open surgical management of thoracolumbar infection, trauma and tumor is associated with significant morbidity. Mini-open and less morbid surgical techniques are being introduced. Our objective is to compare perioperative and immediate post-operative morbidity of open and mini-open thoracolumbar corpectomy techniques including direct hospital costs. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of all patients who underwent open or mini-open corpectomy along with their demographics (age, sex, body mass index (BMI), primary diagnosis), operative data (length of surgery, EBL, blood transfusion-BT), surgical level, pre- and post-operative neurologic status (using ASIA scale), immediate peri-operative complications (within 30 days post-op), overall length of stay (LOS-A), length of stay from surgery (LOS-S), and total direct hospital costs were tabulated and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Donor-specific antibody (DSA) is a widely-used biomarker for antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) but correctly indicates only 30-40% of patients with ABMR. Additional biomarkers of ABMR in kidney transplant recipients are needed. METHODS: All 68 kidney transplanted-recipients enrolled in this study were negative for graft rejection as determined by surveillance-biopsy ELISA at day 7 post-transplantation. Allograft biopsy was then performed at 6 months post-transplantation for subclinical-ABMR detection...

BACKGROUND: Cholecystectomy is performed either as an open or a laparascopic route. Despite of a number of peri-operative and post-operative benefits of laparascopic cholecystectomy, the traditional and invasive open cholecystectomy is still in frequent practice for various reasons. Though general anaesthesia is regarded as the gold standard anaesthetic technique, alternatives to it such as spinal anaesthesia, with its advantages, outweighs general anaesthesia. Spinal anaesthesia, therefore, could be a safe and effective anaesthetic procedure over general anaesthesia for open cholecystectomy...

Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are rare and heterogeneous tumours. A correct definition of STS is imperative from the very beginning of disease management, to guide the diagnostic and imaging work-up, and help to establish the prognosis on which the therapeutic strategy will be based. Over the last few years, many efforts have been made to identify characteristics that could predict disease behaviour and to enrich the therapeutic armamentarium against the advanced disease, that is still characterised by poor prognosis...

INTRODUCTION: Previous guidelines recommend that FXI:C levels should be used to monitor FXI replacement in factor XI (FXI) deficiency. However, FXI:C levels do not correlate with bleeding tendency in this disorder and may not be the optimal test by which to monitor and determine further treatment in the postoperative period. AIM: To assess whether the thrombin generation assay (TGA) and rotational thromboelastometry can be used to monitor FXI replacement peri-operatively in FXI deficiency and to determine if changes in FXI:C levels correlate with changes in thrombin generation and clot formation parameters following treatment with solvent-detergent fresh frozen plasma (SD-FFP)...

In minimal invasive image guided catheterization procedures, physicians require information of the catheter position with respect to the patient's vasculature. However, in fluoroscopic images, visualization of the vasculature requires toxic contrast agent. Static vasculature roadmapping, which can reduce the usage of iodine contrast, is hampered by the breathing motion in abdominal catheterization. In this paper, we propose a method to track the catheter tip inside the patient's 3D vessel tree using intra-operative single-plane 2D X-ray image sequences and a peri-operative 3D rotational angiography (3DRA)...
