PURPOSE: The European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA) congress is an important venue, and the research presented can be a critical source of information used to impact clinical decisions and health policies. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the level of evidence of clinical free papers presented at the ESSKA congress from 2008 to 2016. Moreover, this study evaluated whether there were any changes in the distribution of level of evidence over time...

BACKGROUND: The MitraClip procedure can be an alternative treatment option for patients with high surgical risk for whom surgical treatment is contraindicated. Patients with prosthetic material have an increased risk for infective endocarditis. HYPOTHESIS: Incidence, treatment and outcome of patients with endocarditis after interventional mitral valve repair are not known. METHODS: We searched for articles using PubMed using the terms "interventional mitral valve repair", "mitraclip" and "endocarditis"...

REVIEW
Nobhojit Roy
: This article is based on the Hugh Greenwood Lecture delivered at the 2016 Congress of the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons. It presents the view of the global surgery movement from the bottom of the surgical food chain and proposes what HICs (high-income countries) can do for global surgery in a coordinated fashion. From the LMIC (low- and middle-income countries) surgeon perspective, global surgery is transitioning from the charity-based surgery model to codevelopment with multiple stakeholders...

T Verse, S Wenzel
The impact of treating nasal obstruction in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients is still intensively discussed at congresses. This is likely due to the highly conflicting results of nasal treatments in regard to restorative sleep on the one hand, and their influence on the severity of OSA on the other. Both conservative and surgical nasal treatments result in a highly significant improvement of sleep quality. Patients' sleep is more restorative, which has a huge impact on several quality of life parameters...

In this article, we present the rationale for creating a new society aiming at organizing laparoscopic liver surgery. It has been named International Laparoscopic Liver Society (ILLS). Its main mission is to facilitate the diffusion and education of laparoscopic liver resection for meaningful improvements in patient care. This will include organization of a biannual congress dedicated to laparoscopic liver resection, coordination of international registries, helping in the education of surgeons wishing to learn these techniques including travel grants, provide a website serving as a forum supporting collaboration between surgeons interested in the advancement of laparoscopic liver resection techniques (http://www...

BACKGROUND: The last 200 years have seen remarkable achievements in the art and clinical practice of surgery. These advances include the introduction of antisepsis, anesthesia, vascular anastomosis, antimicrobials, organ transplantation, and the widespread application of minimally invasive operative procedures. Very recently, a surgical procedure has been shown to cure diabetes, representing the most effective treatment of a metabolic disorder by surgeons. METHODS: The author reviewed the major surgical milestones in the modern surgical era and prepared this monograph for presentation as the Claude H...

PURPOSE: To investigate the proportion of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) use in patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer before radical cystectomy and the approach of urologists to this subject. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We invited 242 urologists during the 12th International Urooncology Congress in Turkey to answer a self-administered questionnaire. The questionnaire included questions related to radical cystectomy, lymph node dissection and neoadjuvant chemotherapy that had been performed in patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer by the urologist...

BACKGROUND: Numerous technological adjuncts are used during transsphenoidal surgery for nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs), including endoscopy, neuronavigation, intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diversion, and dural closure techniques. OBJECTIVE: To generate evidence-based guidelines for the use of NFPA surgical techniques and technologies. METHODS: An extensive literature search spanning January 1, 1966, to October 1, 2014, was performed, and only articles pertaining to technological adjuncts for NFPA resection were included...

BACKGROUND: Nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs) are among the most common pituitary lesions and may present clinically with vision loss and hypopituitarism. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the existing literature as it pertains to the initial management of NFPAs. METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted to identify and screen articles assessing primary treatment options (surgical, medical, radiation based, or observation) for NFPAs...

METHODS: A multidisciplinary task force composed of physician volunteers and evidence-based medicine-trained methodologists conducted a systematic review of the literature relevant to the management of NFPAs. To ascertain the class of evidence for the posttreatment follow-ups, the task force used the Clinical Assessment evidence-based classification...

BACKGROUND: Despite growing evidence that bariatric/metabolic surgery powerfully improves type 2 diabetes (T2D), existing diabetes treatment algorithms do not include surgical options. AIM: The 2nd Diabetes Surgery Summit (DSS-II), an international consensus conference, was convened in collaboration with leading diabetes organizations to develop global guidelines to inform clinicians and policymakers about benefits and limitations of metabolic surgery for T2D. METHODS: A multidisciplinary group of 48 international clinicians/scholars (75% nonsurgeons), including representatives of leading diabetes organizations, participated in DSS-II...
