T2 (tumor invades perimuscular connective tissue; no extension beyond serosa or into liver) gallbladder cancer has generally been treated by S4aS5 subsegmentectomy (S4aS5 HR). We investigated the therapeutic effect of full-thickness cholecystectomy (FC) and gallbladder bed resection (GBR), in terms of tumor location and resection margin (distance from the tumor). At our department we employ the following protocol to determine the extent of resection needed to achieve R0 status: (1) A tumor located in the gallbladder fundus (Gf) or body (Gb) and only on the free peritoneal side was classified as P-type, for which full-thickness cholecystectomy and regional lymph node dissection were performed...

This study is to present a case of thoracic kyphosis occurring in the setting of Wilson'disease and explore the possible association between the two diseases. CASE PRESENTATION: Case report and literature review. A previously unreported thoracic kyphosis in Wislon's disease is decribed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to estimate energy and protein intake of patients at the Department of Cardiothoracic surgery, Landspítali the National University Hospital of Iceland. Another aim was also to assess their nutritional status. METHODS: The energy and protein content of meals served by the hospital's kitchen is known. Starting at least 48 hours after surgery, all left over food and drinks were weighed and recorded for three consecutive days. Energy and protein requirements were estimated according to clinical guidelines for hospital nutrition at Landspítali (25-30 kcal/kg/day and 1...

Intussusception is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction in adult patients, but is common in children. In fact, it accounts for an estimated 1% of all cases of bowel obstruction in adults, although adult intussusception of the large intestine is rare. Sigmoidorectal intussusception, however, is a rare variety with few cases reported in the literature. A mucinous adenocarcinoma, a subtype of adenocarcinoma, is characterized by extracellular mucin production and accounts for between 5% and 15% of the neoplasms of the colon and rectum...

The standard therapeutique approach to patients with advanced germ cell tumors of the testis is a combination of systemic chemotherapy with surgical removal of the residual disease. The indication of surgery, residual tumor resection (RTR) or retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND), has changed during the last 10 years. Sugery is not longer recommended after chemotherapy of pure seminoma and surveillance of the residual tumor is the favored option. RPLND is a critical component of the treatment armentarium in low-stage nonseminomatous germ cell...

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Previous studies of sinus surgery on standing horses have been based on techniques which utilise powered hand bone saws and preserve the bone flap, which was thought to be essential for a good cosmetic result. This report describes a simplified technique applied to the standing horse where the sinus flap construction used a large skull trephine and where the bone flap is necessarily discarded. OBJECTIVES: To assess whether the modified standing frontonasal flap (SFF) surgery offers an effective method to investigate and/or treat sinunasal disorders in the horse...

A stabilometer has been used to measure changes in the activity of postural muscles during the later stages of recovery from anaesthesia. It is concluded that stabilometry might be a useful tool with which to measure and record the extent of recovery andthat this might be especially useful for use after out-patient sugery.
