REVIEW
Gillian E Mead, Andrew Elder, Andrew D Flapan, John Cordina
BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation increases stroke risk and adversely affects cardiovascular haemodynamics. Electrical cardioversion may, by restoring sinus rhythm, improve cardiovascular haemodynamics, reduce the risk of stroke, and obviate the need for long-term anticoagulation. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of electrical cardioversion of atrial fibrillation or flutter on the risk of thromboembolic events, strokes and mortality (primary outcomes), the rate of cognitive decline, quality of life, the use of anticoagulants and the risk of re-hospitalisation (secondary outcomes) in adults (>18 years)...

BACKGROUND: International guidelines on the prevention and treatment of parastomal hernias are lacking. The European Hernia Society therefore implemented a Clinical Practice Guideline development project. METHODS: The guidelines development group consisted of general, hernia and colorectal surgeons, a biostatistician and a biologist, from 14 European countries. These guidelines conformed to the AGREE II standards and the GRADE methodology. The databases of MEDLINE, CINAHL, CENTRAL and the gray literature through OpenGrey were searched...

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Speech durations of Turkish orthopedists and the rates of these durations against the durations specified in the schedule were calculated...

PURPOSE: Live surgery (LS) is considered a useful teaching opportunity. The benefits must be balanced with patient safety concerns. To evaluate the rate of complications of a series of urologic LS performed by experts during the Congress Challenge in Laparoscopy and Robotics (CILR). METHODS: We present a large, multi-institution, multi-surgeon database that derives from 12 CILR events, from 2004 to 2015 with a total of 224 cases. Radical prostatectomy (RP) was the most common procedure and a selection of complex cases was noted...

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses the resource-based relative value system to determine payment for physicians and nonphysician practitioners for their professional services. For many surgeries and other types of procedures, Medicare payment includes pre- and post-operative visits delivered during a global period of 10 or 90 days. Congress mandated that CMS collect data on the "number and level" of visits in the global period from a representative sample of physicians beginning January 1, 2017...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Due to a decreased interest in surgical training the German Society of Surgery (GSS) has provided a specially sponsored student program at its annual clinical congress for many years in order to increase the number of applicants for a career in surgery. It remains unclear if this goal is reached because an evaluation has not yet been performed. MATERIAL AND METHODS: At the clinical congress in 2014, 200 medical students participated in a special student program with the aid of a congress grant totaling 100,000 €...

Ibrahim Nassour, Patricio M Polanco
Peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) from colorectal cancer (CRC) is a disease with a poor prognosis, often thought to be a terminal illness with no hope except for palliative treatment. New therapeutic modalities combining cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) have shown favorable outcomes and may provide a significant survival benefit in a selected group of patients. The main rational for CRS is to remove all visible tumor burden to allow for the chemotherapeutic agent (HIPEC) to eradicate any microscopic residual disease...

INTRODUCTION: Since 2013, at the French society of ophthalmology (FSO) meetings, two simulators for intraocular surgeries have been available. The goal of this study was to assess the satisfaction of the participants in these organized training sessions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A questionnaire was mailed to participants in the FSO sessions as well as those carried out during the annual congress. This questionnaire collected data on the participants and the practical modalities of the sessions, and assessed participants' feelings and satisfaction with these sessions...

BACKGROUND: Background Surgical conditions lead to premature death and disability resulting in a massive economic burden. Contributing to this global crisis is the lack of data on the limited surgical workforce in many low and middle income countries (LMICs). METHOD: All paediatric surgeons were contacted during the period 1-28 February 2017 via email as well as during a congress which was held at Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, and a database was compiled...

BACKGROUND: Live surgery events (LSEs) have become one of the most attended activities at surgical meetings and provide a unique opportunity for the audience to observe the decision-making process used by skilled and experienced surgeons in real time. However, there is an ongoing discussion on whether patients treated during LSE are at higher risk of complications. OBJECTIVE: To examine LSE outcomes for robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) and establish patient safety and efficacy...

Traumatic spinal cord injuries have a tremendous impact on individuals, families, and society as a whole. Substantial heterogeneity in the patient population, their presentation and underlying pathophysiology has sparked debates along the care spectrum from initial assessment to definitive treatment. This article reviews spinal cord injury (SCI) management followed by a discussion of the salient controversies in the field. Current care practices modeled on the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons joint section guidelines are highlighted including key recommendations regarding immobilization, avoidance of hypotension, early International Standards for Neurological Classification of SCI examination and intensive care unit treatment...

The early techniques of cleft lip repair involved the straight-line technique, the triangular flap technique or some kind of geometric line (triangular, quadrangular closure). A turning point in cleft lip surgery was in 1955 when doctor. Millard presented his method: the rotation-advancement technique or flap, at the First International Congress of Plastic Surgery in Stockholm. Today, the technique, with or without some modifications, is used by more than 85% of cleft surgeons around the world. We are presenting a patient with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate who underwent surgery sixty-five years ago...
