BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Only a limited number of reports have documented zero mortality in consecutive pancreaticoduodenetomy series. The aim of this study is to review and verify our management aiming to eliminate mortality after pancreaticoduodenetomy. METHODS: Three hundred sixty-eight consecutive patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenetomy between 2002 and 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. During this period, in order to enhance the safety of pancreaticoduodenetomy, we have employed a consistent strategy consisting of early ligation of the inferior pancreatoduodenal artery, mucosal sutureless pancreaticojejunostomy combined with external pancreatic duct stenting, conditional two-stage pancreaticojejunostomy, jejunal decompression using tube jejunostomy, application of an omental flap to cover the stump of the gastroduodenal artery, and careful postoperative drain management...

INTRODUCTION: Minimal evidence exists to guide the surgeon on the risk of complications when performing abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) in the presence of active infection, contamination or enterocutaneous fistula. This study aims to establish the outcomes of contaminated complex AWR. METHODS: Analysis was conducted according to PRISMA guidelines. Systematic search of the MEDLINE, EMBASE and Pubmed databases was performed. Studies reporting exclusively on single-staged repair of contaminated complex AWR were included...

BACKGROUND: Several clinical reports have been published on complications resulting from swallowing multiple magnetic foreign bodies. This study aimed to summarize the clinical experience of managing children who swallowed multiple magnetic foreign bodies. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical records of five children who swallowed multiple magnetic foreign bodies and were admitted to our hospital during June 2012 to June 2014. Details of the patients' presentation, imaging studies, complications and treatment were recorded...

BACKGROUND: This study sought to characterize soft and hard pancreatic textures radiologically and histologically, and to identify specific risks in a soft pancreas associated with postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) formation after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). METHODS: Consecutive 145 patients who underwent PD at a single institution between January 2010 and May 2013 were studied. Pancreatic consistency was intraoperatively judged as soft or hard. Pancreatic configuration was assessed using preoperative CT...

The art and science of using stents to treat dysphagia and seal fistula, leaks and perforations has been evolving. Lessons learnt from the deficiencies of previous models led to several improvements making stent deployment easier, and with some designs, it was also possible to remove the stents if needed. With these improvements, besides malignant dysphagia, newer indications for using stents emerged. Unfortunately, despite several decades of evolution, as yet, there is no perfect stent that "fits all." This article is an overview of how this evolution process happened and where we are currently with using stents to manage patients with dysphagia and with other esophageal disorders...

Intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas(dAVFs)cause pulsatile tinnitus that can easily impair the individual's quality of life. In this study, we aimed to assess the usefulness of the semi-quantitative Tinnitus Handicap Inventory(THI)score before and after endovascular treatment in patients with intracranial dAVF by determining the relationship between the severity of pulsatile tinnitus, radiographic findings, and the effect of treatment. This study included a total of 14 sides in 13 patients who underwent endovascular therapy for pulsatile tinnitus due to intracranial dAVFs between March 2014 and September 2015...

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical data of 6 patients who underwent Ho: YAG Laser lithotripsy in Peking University First Hospital during May 2012 to October 2015. 4 females and 2 males, with a median age of 60 years, were enrolled. Among 6 patients, persistent cough(n=2), hemoptysis(n=2), recurrent pneumonia(n=2) were the main clinical symptoms. Broncholiths were found in the left side in 1 patient and right side in 5 patients...

Abdominal aortic graft-enteric fistula is an uncommon but grave complication. Acceptable early results of its management have been reported in recent years, but aortic stump disruption remains a dreaded problem in the remote period. This report describes a case of a 71-year-old male with graft-enteric fistula following after a distant abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. The patient underwent 1-stage operation with extra-anatomic bypass preceding the complete removal of the infected aortic graft and intestinal repair...

Introduction The need for open abdomen in the treatment of severely ill neonates will increase in time as more complex abdominal procedures are undertaken. However, the experience of temporary closure of an open abdomen using vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) system is still relatively limited in premature and term neonates. The aim of this study is to describe and review our experience in the use of temporary VAC of the open abdomen for neonates with varying pathological processes. Materials and Methods A retrospective folder review of all neonates treated with VAC for open abdomen over the study period of 2010 to 2014 at our institution was performed...

The aim of this study was to assess the clinical and socioeconomic indicators associated with dental anxiety in preschool children with severe dental caries. A total of 100 children between 3 and 5 years of age were selected during a dental screening procedure. The selection criteria were having at least one tooth with dental caries and a visible pulpal involvement, ulceration, fistula, and abscess (PUFA) index of ≥1 in primary teeth. Before the clinical examination or any treatment procedure was performed, we evaluated the children's dental anxiety using the Facial Image Scale (FIS)...

BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is commonly used to locally treat hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, when tumors are close to the Glisson's capsule, RFA may induce injury in this region, complicating therapeutic efforts. We investigated the impact of RFA-induced Glisson's capsule-associated complications on liver function and prognosis of HCC patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed our patient database and found 170 early-stage HCC patients treated via RFA from April 2004 to December 2012...

BACKGROUND: To correlate the operative findings of patients with fistula-in-ano with preoperative MRI and quantify the information added with MRI. METHODS: All consecutive fistula-in-ano patients operated between July 2013 and May 2015 were prospectively enrolled. Preoperative MRI was done in every patient. The details of tracts, internal opening and "complex parameters" (additional tract or additional internal opening, horseshoe tract, associated abscess and supralevator extension) found at surgery were compared to the findings determined by MRI...

Importance: The morbidity of bilateral lateral neck dissection (BLND) for thyroid cancers has not been described in detail. This study delineates the specific complications arising from BLND for thyroid cancers at a single high-volume center. Objective: To determine the morbidity associated with BLNDs for differentiated thyroid cancers at our institution. Design, Setting, and Participants: This was a retrospective review of medical records performed to identify patients having undergone BLNDs for thyroid cancers by a single surgeon at an academic, tertiary medical center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, from 1988 to 2015...

A 25-year-old man was referred to the urology department after a subacute history of left back pain, burning micturition associated with pneumaturia and fecaluria. Ultrasonography was performed showing hydronephrosis, and plain film radiography demonstrated a long vertical left pelvic calculi. Uro-computed tomography (CT) combined with a water enema CT showed a 10 cm long calculus with the cranial extremity fistulating the sigmoidal wall. Surgical treatment included left nephroureterectomy and sigmoidectomy with a colorectal anastomosis...
