BACKGROUND: Aggressive hepatectomy with venous resection has a higher risk of postoperative liver failure (POLF) than hepatectomy without venous reconstruction; however, venous reconstruction is technically demanding. We performed a novel two-stage hepatectomy (TSH) without venous reconstruction in a patient with bilobar multiple colorectal liver metastases located near the caval confluence, waiting for the development of intrahepatic venous collaterals between procedures. CASE PRESENTATION: A 60-year-old man was referred to our hospital with sigmoid colon cancer accompanied by intraabdominal abscess and two synchronous liver metastases...

BACKGROUND: The Focused Abdominal Sonography for Trauma (FAST) exam has been reported to be unreliable in pelvic fracture patients. Additionally, given the advent of new therapeutic interventions, such as Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA), rapid identification of intraabdominal hemorrhage compared to zone III hemorrhage may guide different therapeutic strategies. We hypothesized that FAST is reliable for detecting clinically significant intraabdominal hemorrhage in the face of complex pelvic fractures...

BACKGROUND: Acute appendicitis is the most frequent surgical urgency in children. Frequently, it can be complicated with an intraabdominal abscess that will require a longer and expensive treatment. Our aim is to know if it is possible to predict this complication before its beginning. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective case-control study with patients treated between 2011 and 2016, paired according to their own characteristics (age, sex and weight), clinical aspects (symptoms, time of their onset, physical examination) and type of appendicitis (gangrenous)...

Midurethral mesh sling is the most performed incontinence procedure. This hypotheses propose knotless barbed suture could be positioned as a tension-free trans-vaginal sling under the mid-urethra without vaginal incision. Knotless suture sling support and stabilize mid-urethra when intraabdominal pressure increase. This procedure is designed to replace midurethral mesh sling operation, aiming at reducing complications. It is completed in a similar way with retropubic mesh sling procedure, and less invasive...

INTRODUCTION: Pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A) stimulates insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I action through proteolytic cleavage of IGF binding protein-4 (IGFBP-4). Recently, stanniocalcin-2 (STC2) was discovered as an inhibitor of PAPP-A. Most members of the IGF system are expressed in adipose tissue (AT), but there is a relative paucity of information on the distribution of IGFBP-4, PAPP-A, and STC2 in different AT depots. Since IGF-I expression in AT is highly GH-dependent, we used bovine GH transgenic (bGH) and GH receptor knockout (GHR-/-) mice to investigate AT depot-specific expression patterns of IGFBP-4, PAPP-A, and STC2, and whether the regulation is GH-dependent...

Laparoscopic total gastrectomy(LTG)is one of the most increasing surgeries among gastric cancer surgery. Although LTG has many advantages on the patient, we should be more careful of its specific complications. Here we report a case of 72- year-old man with the complaint of severe acute upper abdominal pain due to strangulation ileus caused by incarcerated esophageal hiatal hernia(EHH)after LTG. Emergent operation has performed on the patient and total 180 cm length of necrotic small intestine was resected...

BACKGROUND: A mechanical intestinal obstruction (MIO) can generate intraabdominal hypertension (IAH) that is life threatening. The intestines are very sensitive to IAH since the low splanchnic perfusion causes intestinal hypoxia, local acidosis and bacterial translocations. This may lead to acute intestinal distress syndrome (AIDS). The identification of intestinal injuries during IAH and its correlation with clinical parameters as the abdominal perfusion pressure (APP), the gastric intramucosal pH (pHi) and lactic acid (Lc) are still unknown...

Risk of optic nerve injury after prolonged Trendelenburg's position Postoperative loss of vision due to acute ischaemic optic nerve injury is a rare complication following pelvic surgery. A steep Trendelenburg's position of the patient, high intraabdominal pressure and a long operative time in Trendelenburg's position are recognised risk factors associated with robot-assisted pelvic surgery. This manuscript presents the underlying pathophysiologic mechanism. Practical tips and tricks for prevention are discussed...

OBJECTIVE: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, which frequently cause intraabdominal metastases. The current standard of care is surgery for localized cases, and adjuvant imatinib is recommended for tumors with a high risk of recurrence. To date, radiotherapy has not been commonly accepted as a part of multimodality treatment approach other than palliation. However, recently published case reports and some small series suggest that radiotherapy is a valuable option for controlling locally progressive, drug-resistant disease...
