INTRODUCTION: Peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) is a cancer disease with an urgent need for effective treatment. Conventional chemotherapy failed to show acceptable results. Cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic chemoperfusion (HIPEC) are only beneficial in few patients with resectable peritoneal metastasis. Immunotherapy could be attractive against PC, as all requirements for immunotherapy are available in the peritoneal cavity. AREAS COVERED: This review analyzes the present literature for immunotherapy of PC...

OBJECTIVE: The treatment strategy for diabetic foot syndrome must take into account protective sensibility of the foot, open wounds, infection status, and the rules of septic bone surgery. Interventions are classified as elective, prophylactic, curative, or emergency. Amputations in the forefoot and midfoot region are performed as ray amputations (including metatarsal), which can often be carried out as "inner" amputations. Gentle tissue treatment mandatory because of greater risk of revision with re-amputation compared to classical amputation...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS), guidelines entail a strategy of perioperative management proven to hasten postoperative recovery and reduce complications in adult populations. Relatively few studies have investigated the applicability of this paradigm to pediatric populations. Our objective was to perform a systematic review of existing evidence regarding the use and efficacy of enhanced recovery protocols (ERPs) in the pediatric population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were collected through a PubMed/MEDLINE literature search...

BACKGROUND: Total proctocolectomy (TPC) and ileal pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA) have become the standard of care for patients with ulcerative colitis refractory to medical management. The purpose of our study is to show our single-site approach and to identify maneuvers that improve efficiency. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent single-site three-stage TPC-IPAA for ulcerative colitis at our institution. Primary outcomes included operative time, conversion from single site to standard laparoscopy, time to oral intake and stoma function, postoperative complications, and length of stay...

The present article describes the guidelines for the surgical treatment of atraumatic avascular necrosis (aFKN). These include joint preserving and joint replacement procedures. As part of the targeted literature, 43 publications were included and evaluated to assess the surgical treatment. According to the GRADE and SIGN criteria level of evidence (LoE), grade of recommendation (EC) and expert consensus (EK) were listed for each statement and question. The analysed studies have shown that up to ARCO stage III, joint-preserving surgery can be performed...

Acetylcholine (ACh) is an important signaling molecule in non-neuronal systems where it is involved in regulation of viability, proliferation, differentiation and migration of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) that are capable to differentiate into osteoblasts, chondrocytes and adipocytes. Patients with the systemic disease osteoporosis show altered MSC properties, reduced bone formation and mineral density followed by increased bone fragility and high fracture incidence. Here we asked whether nicotinic and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (AChR) are expressed in osteoblasts, adipocytes and chondrocytes differentiated from bone MSC extracted from human reaming debris (RDMSC) that was harvested during surgery of long bone diaphyseal fractures...

Background Cases of posttraumatic arteriovenous (AV) fistula of the distal lower limb are rarely reported. Time from trauma to diagnosis varies from hours to years. Case Description This case report of a 51-year-old male patient shows very impressively the extensive consequences of an unrecognized traumatic AV fistula. The fistula developed here after a car accident led to a massive healing delay in a pilon fracture of the tibia and a wound, resulting in almost 1 year immobilization, 20 operations, and extensive pain drug therapy...

Accelerated vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation is implied in cardiovascular disease and significantly contributes to vessel lumen reduction following surgical interventions such as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or bypass surgery. Therefore, identification and characterization of compounds and mechanisms able to counteract VSMC proliferation is of potential therapeutic relevance. This work reveals the anti-proliferative effect of the natural product capsaicin from Capsicum spp...

OBJECT: The effect of craniovertebral decompression surgery on CSF flow dynamics in patients with Chiari malformation Type I (CM-I) has been incompletely characterized. The authors used computational fluid dynamics to calculate the effect of decompression surgery on CSF flow dynamics in the posterior fossa and upper cervical spinal canal. METHODS: Oscillatory flow was simulated in idealized 3D models of the normal adult and the CM-I subarachnoid spaces (both previously described) and in 3 models of CM-I post-craniovertebral decompressions...

BACKGROUND: Appendicectomy (AE), the most frequent emergency surgical procedure, can be performed as a transvaginal hybrid natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) technique (TVAE). The question of feasibility also arises in cases of advanced inflammation with perforation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Since May 2012 all female patients with suspected acute appendicitis were offered a TVAE as an alternative to the standard procedure. Preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative parameters were registered prospectively...

INTRODUCTION: For cholecystectomy (CHE), both the needlescopic three-trocar technique with 2-3-mm instruments (needlescopic cholecystectomy (NC)) and the umbilically assisted transvaginal technique with rigid instruments (transvaginal cholecystectomy (TVC)) have been established for further reduction of the trauma remaining from laparoscopy. METHODS: To compare the further outcome of both techniques for elective CHE in female patients, we analyzed the secondary end points of a prospective randomized single-center trial (needlescopic versus transvaginal cholecystectomy (NATCH) trial; ClinicalTrials...

5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) has been used for the last 5 years to increase the extent of resection in adult brain tumors, mostly glioblastomas, but it is not approved yet as standard adjuvant treatment in the pediatric population. We report three different cases of pediatric brain tumors (two glioblastomas and one medulloblastoma) recently operated using 5-ALA fluorescence guidance, highlighting how useful it is in pediatric high-grade glioma (but not in medulloblastoma) also and confirming the lack of 5-ALA-related side effects...
