INTRODUCTION: The stapled hemorrhoidopexy (SH) and the Doppler-guided transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization (DG-THD) are minimally invasive procedures for the surgical treatment of hemorrhoids. This study aims to verify the efficacy of the DG-THD versus the SH in the treatment of third-degree hemorrhoids. METHOD: One hundred consecutive patients were causally allocated to either procedure, obtaining two groups of 50 pts. A clinical examination was performed at 3, 7, 15, and 30 days after the operation...

Obesity is a growing socio-economic problem especially in the western population. Patients who are undergoing bariatric surgery after a significant weight loss have an altered body profile which may have an important psychological impact. These patients may be candidates for surgical body-lifting. The aim of body-lifting is to obtain a firmer, tighter, rejuvenated appearance for patients who have lax, ptotic tissues. In this paper we describe our experience with two techniques currently practiced by our team, brachioplasty and thigh lift, reporting the indications, the surgical technique and possible complications...

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is associated with adverse outcomes and increased mortality in cardiac patients. No studies have examined PTSD in the adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) population. The objectives of this study were to assess the prevalence of self-reported symptoms of PTSD in patients with ACHD and explore potential associated factors. Patients were enrolled from an outpatient ACHD clinic and completed several validated measures including the Impact of Event Scale-Revised, PTSD Checklist-Civilian Version, and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale...

Low cardiac output syndrome (LCOS) is a well-described entity occurring in 25-65% of pediatric patients undergoing open-heart surgery. With judicious intensive care management of LCOS, most patients have an uncomplicated postoperative course, and within 24 h after cardiopulmonary bypass, the cardiac function returns back to baseline. Some patients have severe forms of LCOS not responsive to medical management alone, requiring temporary mechanical circulatory support to prevent end-organ injury and to decrease myocardial stress and oxygen demand...

BACKGROUND: Instability of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) is a complication that can occur following distal radius fracture or malunion. We have observed that residual radial translation of the distal radius, relative to the radial shaft, may be a causal factor of DRUJ instability, even once the traditional radiographic parameters (volar tilt, radial inclination, and ulnar variance) have been restored. Residual radial translation of the distal fragment may cause detensioning of the distal interosseous membrane (IOM) and pronator quadratus with poor apposition between the ulnar head and sigmoid notch...

OBJECTIVES: Analyses of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) in pediatric heart surgery have primarily focused on single-center outcomes or narrow applications. We describe the patterns of use, patient characteristics, and MCS-associated outcomes across a large multicenter cohort. METHODS: Patients (aged <18 years) in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Congenital Heart Surgery Database (2000-2010) were included. The characteristics and outcomes of those receiving postoperative MCS were described, and bayesian hierarchical models were used to examine variations in the adjusted MCS rates across institutions...

BACKGROUND: Despite modern advances in surgical care, triple-valve surgery (TVS) remains a challenge and carries a mortality of 10% to 20%. No validated risk score is available for TVS, and the effect of advanced age is unknown. This study examined our results in the modern era with the aim of identifying perioperative predictors of adverse outcomes. METHODS: Between 1997 and 2013, 131 patients (mean age, 67.2±13.4 years) underwent TVS at our institution. Sixty-eight patients (51...

OBJECTIVE: Surgical repair of acute Type A aortic dissection (AADA) is still associated with high in-hospital mortality. We evaluated the impact of perioperative risk factors on early and midterm survival. METHODS: Retrospective (2002-2011) database analysis at a single institution of 132 consecutive AADA patients (88 male, age 59.8 ± 13.6). All but five patients underwent repair with open distal anastomoses and hypothermic circulatory arrest: aortic valve replacement/root replacement (n=44, 33...

OBJECTIVE: Outcomes data for adults undergoing congenital heart surgery are limited. Previous analyses used administrative data or focused on single-center outcomes. We describe the most common operations, patient characteristics, and postoperative outcomes using a multicenter clinical database. METHODS: The study included adults (aged ≥ 18 years) listed in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart Surgery Database (2000-2009). We describe patient characteristics and morbidity and mortality, and examine congenital procedures in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Adult Cardiac Surgery Database to permit consideration of the primary dataset within a broader context...

The results of the Ferguson medial approach for reduction of developmental hip dysplasia were reviewed for 24 hips. The mean age at surgery was 4.8 months and the mean length of clinical follow-up was 59 months. Clinically all hips were normal in follow-up and radiologically the acetabular index was within normal limits. There was the need for further surgery in two cases with loss of concentric reduction. There were two cases showing evidence of vascular insult post operatively according to the classification of Kalmachi and MacEwan...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and other variables in hole closure and functional success rate after idiopathic macular hole surgery. DESIGN: Retrospective, multicenter, observational study. METHODS: The records of 1627 patients operated on for idiopathic macular hole were collected retrospectively from 28 surgeons. All patients underwent a single pars plana vitrectomy and were divided into 2 groups: with and without ILM peeling...

BACKGROUND: The implant of intraocular lenses (IOLs) following cataract surgery induces a foreign-body reaction to the IOL and a response on the part of the lens epithelial cells (LECs). The purpose of this study was to compare these aspects after the implantation of two different IOL materials. METHODS: Thirty-six cataract patients were randomised to receive two different foldable lens: an acrylic hydrophobic IOL (Acrysof MA30BA) and a heparin surface-modified (HSM) polymethylmethacrylate IOL (Pharmacia & Upjohn 809C) after phacoemulsification...

A case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma involving the caecum and the rectum was resected. The disease occurs in 1-4% of gastrointestinal neoplasms and comprises 0.2-0.65% of colorectal tumours. The caecum is frequently involved while primary malignant lymphoma localized to the caecum and the rectum is more uncommon. The most representative histological types are histiocytic or lymphocytic tumours. The disease commonly presents as a painful abdominal mass and is associated with weight loss and diarrhoea. Barium enema and pancolonoscopy are sufficient for diagnosis, but echotomography and Tc scan are useful for staging...
