Emin Kapi
BACKGROUND: Visual recording of surgical procedures is a method that is used quite frequently in practices of plastic surgery. While presentations containing photographs are quite common in education seminars and congresses, video-containing presentations find more favour. For this reason, the presentation of surgical procedures in the form of real-time video display has increased especially recently. Appropriate technical equipment for video recording is not available in most hospitals, so there is a need to set up external apparatus in the operating room...

Trisomy 18 (T18) is a genetic disorder with cardiac lesions in up to 90% of patients. Cardiac surgery is not frequently offered because of the overall poor prognosis, although this has recently been challenged. Our study aimed to explore the practices and attitudes of Canadian pediatric cardiologists managing T18 patients. We administered a survey to pediatric cardiologists attending the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress, Canadian Pediatric Cardiology Association Business Meeting. There were 30 respondents. Most (67%) supported comfort care for affected patients with a heart lesion...

BACKGROUND: Introduced more than 20 years ago, laparoscopic pancreatic surgery (LAPS) has not reached a uniform acceptance among HPB surgeons. As a result, there is no consensus regarding its use in patients with pancreatic neoplasms. This study, organized by the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES), aimed to develop consensus statements and clinical recommendations on the application of LAPS in these patients. METHODS: An international panel of experts was selected based on their clinical and scientific expertise in laparoscopic and open pancreatic surgery...

CONTEXT: Mid gut neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare tumors whose incidence is increasing. Curative surgery remains the gold standard for the treatment of NETs of the small intestine. Surgery should be considered as soon as possible even if a metastatic stage is diagnosed. The management of unresectable well-differentiated metastatic NETs of the small intestine recently changed with the publication of trials demonstrating the benefit of targeted therapies and metabolic radiotherapy, leading to a change of practices and update of French and international recommendations...

Objective: Introduce the low-cost and easy to purchase simulator without biological material so that any institution may promote extensive cardiovascular surgery training both in a hospital setting and at home without large budgets. Methods: A transparent plastic box is placed in a wooden frame, which is held by the edges using elastic bands, with the bottom turned upwards, where an oval opening is made, "simulating" a thoracotomy. For basic exercises in the aorta, the model presented by our service in the 2015 Brazilian Congress of Cardiovascular Surgery: a silicone ice tray, where one can train to make aortic purse-string suture, aortotomy, aortorrhaphy and proximal and distal anastomoses...

REVIEW
Alp Numanoglu
Halstedian method of surgical training has been the mainstay of surgical education for many decades. Onsite knowledge sources in surgery have traditionally been textbooks, which are often a number of years out of date or teaching rounds with a Professor or senior colleague that enables a small number of trainees to benefit from. Congresses have been a good way of learning new developments in the field, but they often require travelling and are very costly. We have identified web-based education as a means of linking experts with trainees, regardless of their geographic location and often without requiring any substantial capital...

BACKGROUND: In 1992, Congress implemented a relative value unit (RVU) payment system to set reimbursement for all procedures covered by Medicare. In 1997, data supported that a significant gender bias existed in reimbursement for gynecologic compared to urologic procedures. The present study was performed to compare work and total RVU's for gender specific procedures effective January 2015 and to evaluate if time has healed the gender-based RVU worth. METHODS: Using the 2015 CPT codes, we compared work and total RVU's for 50 pairs of gender specific procedures...

Congress provided for the formation of patient safety organizations (PSOs) so that physicians and other providers would come forward to improve the safety and quality of health care. Important legal safeguards for the providers and patients were put in place for PSOs. The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) PSO operates the Vascular Quality Initiative. The latter gathers information from certain commonly done vascular procedures. First, information is collected so a risk adjustment determination of each individual patient can be done...
