INTRODUCTION: Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most frequent cause of anovulatory infertility and management involves a multistep approach. Laparoscopic ovarian diathermy is accepted as a second-line treatment of patients who failed to respond to clomiphene citrate. The aims of this study were to determine the efficacy of this technique at short and long-term and to perform an analysis of predictive factors of spontaneous pregnancy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective study involved 76 women who underwent laparoscopic ovarian diathermy between 2004 and 2013 in a university hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Diathermy is an integral part of many modern surgical procedures. While diathermy is generally accepted as 'safe', electrosurgery-induced injuries are among the more common causes for malpractice litigation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the awareness among surgeons of the principles, risks, precautions and appropriate use of diathermy. METHODS: All surgeons employed from Senior House Officer (SHO) to Consultant grade in two teaching hospitals were surveyed...

BACKGROUND: Haemorrhoidectomy is considered the most efficient method to treat haemorrhoids of III and IV grades. The aim of this study is to compare conventional diathermy haemorrhoidectomy and radiofrequency haemorrhoidectomy based on a large series of patients. METHODS: Between June 2001 and June 2014, 1000 patients have been treated with radiofrequency haemorrhoidectomy (Group A) and 500 patients have been treated with diathermy (Group B) as a day-case procedure...

BACKGROUND: Liver parenchymal transection is the most invasive and challenging part in the living donor operation. The study was planned to compare the safety, efficacy, and outcome of harmonic scalpel versus spray diathermy as a method of parenchymal liver transection in donor hepatectomy. PATIENT AND METHOD: Eighty consecutive patients, who were treated by living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), were included in the study. The study population was divided into two groups according to the method of liver transection: group A by harmonic scalpel (HS) and group B by spray diathermy (SD)...

Background: Stapled hemorrhoidopexy is associated with less postoperative pain and faster recovery. However, it may be associated with a greater risk of symptomatic recurrence. We hypothesized that undertaking a limited surgical excision of hemorrhoid disease after stapling may be a valid approach for selected patients. Aim: To compare long-term results after stapled hemorrhoidopexy with and without complementation with closed excisional technique. Method: In a retrospective uni-institutional cohort study, sixty-five (29 men) patients underwent stapled hemorrhoidopexy and 21 (13 men) underwent stapled hemorrhoidopexy with excision...

PURPOSE: Recently, optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has been used to successfully delineate vessels within the retina. This current study aims to assess corneal vascularization secondary to herpetic keratitis pre- and post-treatment using serial OCTA imaging adapted for the anterior segment. METHODS: All eyes were scanned using the split-spectrum amplitude decorrelation angiography (SSADA) algorithm on the AngioVue OCTA system (Optovue Inc. Fremont, CA, USA) with an anterior segment lens adapter...

OBJECTIVE: To provide a review of the literature regarding this technique as well as a step-by-step description with the goal of increasing its use as a safe surgical option. Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is characterized by vaginal agenesis and a variety of mullerian duct anomalies. To date, a variety of procedures have been described for creating a neovagina, but the best treatment remains debated. The Wharton-Sheares-George method, a minimally invasive surgical approach for the creation of a neovagina, is remarkably simple to perform...

BACKGROUND: Inferior turbinate hypertrophy is often encountered by plastic surgeons who perform rhinoplasty. Many treatment options are available to treat the inferior turbinate. The objective of this study was to systematically review outcomes of available techniques and provide guidance to surgical turbinate management. METHODS: A MEDLINE search was performed for means of treating inferior turbinate hypertrophy. Studies selected focused on treatment of the inferior turbinate in isolation and excluding patients with refractory allergic rhinitis, vasomotor rhinitis, or hypertrophic rhinitis...

The da Vinci Xi robot has been introduced as the successor to the Si platform. The promise of the Xi is to open the door to new surgical procedures. For robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP)/pelvic surgery, the potential is better vision and longer instruments. How has the Xi impacted on operative and pathological parameters as indicators of surgical performance? This is a comparison of an initial series of 42 RARPs with the Xi system in 2015 with a series using the Si system immediately before Xi uptake in the same calendar year, and an Si series by the same surgeon synchronously as the Xi series using operative time, blood loss, and positive margins as surrogates of surgical performance...

UNLABELLED: A systematic review on laryngopyoceles across Ovid, PubMed, and Google Scholar database was conducted. A total of 61 papers published between 1952 and 2015 were found. Of these, 23 cases written in English, which described the number of cases, surgical approaches, resort to tracheostomy, complications, and outcomes, were shortlisted. Four cases of laryngopyoceles were managed endoscopically using a cold instrument, microdebrider, or laser. Eighteen cases were operated via an external approach, and 1 case applied both approaches...

PURPOSE: To compare a plasma ablation device with a standard ablation device in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction to determine which system is superior in terms of intra-articular heat generation and diathermy efficiency. METHODS: This was a prospective, randomized controlled trial. The inclusion criteria were adult patients undergoing primary ACL reconstruction. Patients were randomized preoperatively to the standard ablation group or the plasma ablation group...

The present circuit was designed to apply to human tissue impedance tuning and matching device in ultra-short wave treatment equipment. In order to judge if the optimum status of circuit parameter between energy emitter circuit and accepter circuit is in well syntony, we designed a high frequency envelope detect circuit to coordinate with automatic adjust device of accepter circuit, which would achieve the function of human tissue impedance matching and tuning. Using the sampling coil to receive the signal of amplitude-modulated wave, we compared the voltage signal of envelope detect circuit with electric current of energy emitter circuit...

Video-assisted diathermy ablation (VADA) and crystallised phenol application (CPA) have been independently suggested as minimally invasive treatment options for sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease (SPD). The failure rates may be 5-33% with either method, and these methods have a longer healing time when used alone. Thus, we combined the two methods to fulgurate the infected inner lining of the sinus after cleaning up the hair and debris, and to identify the anatomy of the pilonidal cavity in its entirety, including its branches and cavities, by video assistance; the ultimate aim was to disperse sclerosing phenol crystals for faster healing and potentially less or no recurrence...

BACKGROUND: Cervical cancer is a major public health problem worldwide. In Mexico there are an estimated 50 cases per 100,000 women. Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) is a precursor of inva- sive cancer. Early detection and treatment of this condition lead to a cure rate close to 100%. OBJECTIVES: To know the percentage of patients who, following a loop diathermy conization, present premalignant lesion recurrence within a cyto-colpo-histological follow-up period of one year; to identify risk factors for patients with persistent lesions...

BACKGROUND: Management of rotator cuff disease may include use of electrotherapy modalities (also known as electrophysical agents), which aim to reduce pain and improve function via an increase in energy (electrical, sound, light, or thermal) into the body. Examples include therapeutic ultrasound, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF). These modalities are usually delivered as components of a physical therapy intervention...
