INTRODUCTION: Although laparoscopic surgery uses relatively small incisions, incisional hernia after surgery is not uncommon. However, the incidence of incisional hernia and its risk factors are not well known. The purpose of our study was to investigate risk factors for incisional hernia after laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery. METHODS: The study group consisted of 212 patients who underwent laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery at Hiroshima Prefectural Hospital between November 2008 and October 2013...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the early clinical effects of treating the avulsed fracture of humerus greater tuberosity using the double-row suture anchor fixation technique. METHODS: Total 20 patients with the avulsed fracture of the greater tuberosity of the humerus were treated from September 2009 to January 2013. There were 12 males and 7 females, with an average age of 46.8 years old(24 to 69 years old). Eleven patients had injuries on right shoulder joint and 8 patients had injuries on left side...

The object of our study is to show the causes leading to conversion, in order to observe the responsible variables and analyses if conversion influences the patient's outcome. Between January 2013 and December 2016, Udine Thoracic Department performed 180 video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomies, and 24 cases were converted to thoracotomy due to an intra-operative complication such as arterial or venous bleeding, airway and other injuries. The VATS lobectomies' number increased over the three years: from 27 in 2013 to 55 in 2015 and 48 in 2016...

Post-endoscopic pancreatitis (PEP) is the most common complication of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Depending on the presence of risk factors, PEP can occur in 4,1% to about 43% of patients. According to the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) guidelines, only three to patient-associated risk factors have been identified: suspected sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) (OR 4.09), female gender (OR 2.23), and previous pancreatitis (OR 2.46). Another three procedure-associated factors include cannulation attempt duration > 10 minutes (OR 1...

BACKGROUND: Chronic leaks after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) are often difficult to treat by endoscopy metallic stent. Septotomy has been indicated as an effective procedure, but the technical aspects have not been detailed in previous publications (Campos JM, Siqueira LT, Ferraz AA, et al., J Am Coll Surg 204(4):711, 2007; Baretta G, Campos J, Correia S, et al., Surg Endosc 29(7):1714-20, 2015; Campos JM, Pereira EF, Evangelista LF, et al., Obes Surg 21(10):1520-9, 2011). We herein present a video (6 min) demonstrating the maneuver principles of this technique, showing it as a safe and feasible approach...

PURPOSE: To investigate and compare corneal biomechanical changes in the form of corneal hysteresis (CH) and corneal resistance factor (CRF) after small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) and laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK). METHODS: In this retrospective observational study, patients who underwent either SMILE (36 eyes, 21 patients) or LASEK (35 eyes, 19 patients) were included. Data were collected preoperatively and at 1 and 3 months postoperatively, which included corneal topography and Ocular Response Analyzer values of CH, CRF, and intraocular pressure (IOP)...

PURPOSE: This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the outcomes of bimanual microincision cataract surgery (B-MICS) through a 1.2- to 1.5-mm incision versus standard coaxial small-incision cataract surgery (C-SICS) through a 2.8- to 3.2-mm incision. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search was performed according to the Cochrane Collaboration methodology to identify randomized controlled clinical trials comparing B-MICS with standard C-SICS. Main outcome measures were mean surgical time, mean phacoemulsification power, effective phacoemulsification time, best-corrected visual acuity, surgically induced astigmatism (SIA), mean laser flare photometry values, mean endothelial cell loss, mean increased central corneal thickness, and intraoperative and postoperative complications...

OBJECTIVE: : Bilateral anterior transsternal thoracotomy incision (clamshell technique) is the standard approach used for bilateral sequential lung transplantation (LTX). The morbidity and wound complications of this large incision can be considerable and costly. Muscle sparing anterior thoracotomies without division of the sternum may lead to decreasing the sequelae of wound complications. The objective of this study was to determine the rate of wound complications in the nonsternal incising lung transplant patients...

OBJECTIVE: The neurosurgical approach through the lamina terminalis (LT) is a commonly used technique for management of the third ventricle region pathology. Furthermore, LT fenestration is a recommended procedure during surgery of ruptured intracranial aneurysms. Though the LT is a rudimentary structure in adult human brain, its neurosurgical significance is eliciting increasing interest. The aim of the presented study is to characterize the LT histologically, with special attention to the previously recommended area of LT fenestration and to the localization and structure of the organum vasculosum lamina terminalis (OVLT)...

To examine the mid term outcome of the lateral tunnel Fontan and the result is to be compared to extracardiac Fontan operation. Between March 1991 and May 2002, 72 lateral tunnel (LT) and 28 extracardiac conduit (EC) total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) were performed. Right atrium was incised parallel to the sulcus terminalis and LT was created by using autologous right atrial wall. Lateral tunnel size was determined 1-2 mm larger than normal half pulmonary artery (PA) size according to the body weight. There were 1 early and 1 late death, both initial LT group...

We present a case of lipoma arising from the chest wall spreading into the thoracic cavity. Although asymptomatic, a 65-year-old female was pointed out an abnormal shadow on the chest X-ray film taken at the mass survey. The tumor, measuring 3.4 x 3.0 x 2.0 cm in diameter, was surgically removed under thoracoscopic visualization through a small thoracotomy incision of lt. 1st intercostal space, and the diagnosis of lipoma was confirmed postoperatively by histopathologic examination.
