BACKGROUND: Despite improved surgical practices and in-hospital surveillance systems, surgical site infections remain a major public health problem worldwide and often require readmission to hospital. The aim was to apply an advance and innovative spatial analysis approach to identify spatial pattern and clustering (hotspots) of surgical site infection rate (CSIR), and quantifying disparities across communities. METHODS: We used the Admitted Patient Data Collection for patients aged 18 years and over who underwent colorectal surgery in a public hospital between 2002 and 2013 in the Australian State of New South Wales (NSW)...

Dural arteriovenous fistula(dAVF)is relatively rare, and its etiology remains uncertain. Generally, dAVF is thought to be acquired and has been reported to develop secondary to sinus thrombosis, head injury, infection, and surgery. We report a rare case of dAVF in the anterior cranial fossa that developed remote from the craniotomy site after surgery. A 52-year-old man underwent surgery for hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage 4 years prior. Perioperative imaging modalities demonstrated no abnormal vascular malformation except for an un-ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm...

BACKGROUND: Spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is a rare disease and multiple concurrent lesions are extremely rare. Such multiple spinal DAVFs have similar outflow routes at neighboring levels. However, there have been no reported cases of remote lesions of multiple spinal DAVFs. The authors herein report a case of double synchronous cervical and sacral DAVFs. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 56-year-old man with no prior history of disease presented with progressive myelopathy, and spinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed extensive edema of the spinal cord from the conus to T7...

Hemorrhage is the most preventable cause of posttraumatic death. Many cases are potentially anatomically salvageable, yet remain lethal without logistics or trained personnel to deliver diagnosis or resuscitative surgery in austere environments. Revolutions in technology for remote mentoring of ultrasound and surgery may enhance capabilities to utilize the skill sets of non-physicians. Thus, our research collaborative explored remote mentoring to empower non-physicians to address junctional and torso hemorrhage control in austere environments...

Guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus) are a frequently used species in research, often involving potentially painful procedures.Therefore, evidence-based recommendations regarding analgesia are critically needed to optimize their wellbeing. Ourlaboratory examined the efficacy of carprofen and extended-release (ER) buprenorphine, alone and as a multimodal combination,for relieving postsurgical pain in guinea pigs. Animals were assessed by using evoked (mechanical hypersensitivity),nonevoked (video ethogram, cageside ethogram, time-to-consumption test), and clinical (weight loss) measurements for 96 h during baseline, anesthesia-analgesia, and hysterectomy conditions...

Saphenovenous graft aneurysm is a rare complication of coronary artery bypass grafts that is likely underdiagnosed. It is typically asymptomatic, slow growing, and often diagnosed incidentally on angiography or following catastrophic rupture. There is no consensus on best management but PCI and surgery appear to have more favourable mortality outcomes relative to conservative management. We present the case of a 48-year-old male with a cardiovascular risk profile hallmarked by diabetes mellitus, end stage renal failure, recalcitrant hyperlipidaemia, and IHD previously treated with CABG...

BACKGROUND: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a major reproductive health problem in Nepal, though many women delay seeking treatment. To address this, the Nepalese government has been providing free vaginal hysterectomies with pelvic floor repair to women in mobile surgical camps. Studies exploring factors that enable women to attend these camp settings are limited. This study aimed to identify factors that affected women seeking surgical treatment for POP at mobile surgical camps. METHODS: The study used a qualitative approach...

PURPOSE: Obtaining remote patient-reported outcomes (PRO) is limited by low patient response rates and resource-intensive collection methods. We hypothesized that an e-mail-delivered Web-based data collection tool would outperform the traditional methods of telephone and standard mail for collecting long-term Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (BCTQ) scores at a minimum of 1 year following carpal tunnel release (CTR). METHODS: We conducted a randomized trial of 969 patients who underwent CTR at a tertiary medical center within the past 5 years...

The study was aimed at revealing risk factors for progression of atherosclerosis in the shunted coronary artery in the remote period following coronary artery bypass grafting. Our prospective study included a total of 292 patients having endured coronary artery bypass grafting. All patients were divided in two groups depending on the type of the bypass grafts used: either autoarterial shunts (Group 1) or autovenous grafts (Group 2). We thus assessed a total of 516 autoarterial grafts and 257 autovenous grafts, as well as the coronary arteries shunted thereby...

Acute and chronic cerebral circulatory impairment is a very commonly encountered type of neurological diseases, annually affecting more than six million people worldwide. The absolute majority of all cases are associated with atherosclerosis of cerebral arteries. Surgical intervention in a stenotic lesion of the internal carotid artery (ICA) is a method of preventive treatment with confirmed efficacy. Eversion carotid endarterectomy (ECEA) is currently the most commonly used 'open' operation for this cohort of patients...
