Background: Diabetic foot ulcers are frequently related to elevated pressure under a bony prominence. Conservative treatment includes offloading with orthopaedic shoes and custom made orthotics or plaster casts. While casting in plaster is usually effective in achieving primary closure of foot ulcers, recurrence rates are high. Minimally invasive surgical offloading that includes correction of foot deformities has good short and long term results. The surgery alleviates the pressure under the bony prominence, thus enabling prompt ulcer healing, negating the patient's dependence on expensive shoes and orthotics, with a lower chance of recurrence...

Bariatric surgery is an effective treatment for morbid obesity and its metabolic related comorbidities - Type II Diabetes, Hypertension and Hyperlipidaemia.1 However, the literature is scarce regarding the long-term outcome after bariatric surgery especially among multi-ethnic Asian populations. Considering the growing number of bariatric metabolic operations in Asia, we have attempted to provide a regional perspective on 5-year long-term clinical outcomes post bariatric surgery in Singapore. Between years 2010 to 2016, all bariatric operative cases consisted of 393 Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG), 125 Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) and 43 Laparoscopic Mini-gastric Bypass (MGB) were included...

OBJECTIVE: Minimally invasive mitral valve repair may be associated with prolonged cardioplegic arrest times and ischemic reperfusion injury. Intravenous (propofol) and volatile (sevoflurane) anesthesia are used routinely during cardiac surgery and are thought to provide cardioprotection; however, the individual contribution of each regimen to cardioprotection is unknown. Therefore, the authors sought to compare the cardioprotective effects of propofol and sevoflurane anesthesia in patients undergoing minimally invasive mitral valve repair...
