INTRODUCTION: Diagnostic laparoscopy is well accepted in the management of penetrating abdominal trauma (PAT). Therapeutic laparoscopy, on the other hand, remains controversial. In patients with multiple hollow viscera injuries, laparoscopy is usually converted to laparotomy. We aim at describing the laparoscopic-assisted technique in the management of patients with PAT. Using our experience with laparoscopy, we tailored the technique to the setting of PAT. METHODS: The laparoscopic-assisted approach (LAA) was adapted to a trauma setting and prospectively evaluated...

BACKGROUND: To avoid bile leakage from the stump of a cystic duct that is closed at edematous and/or involved areas, the decision regarding the location of the resection line during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for benign lesions extending into the cystic duct is important and requires technical ingenuity. For these situations, we used fluorescent cholangiography. METHODS: Our procedure for single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy utilized the SILS-Port, and an additional pair of 5-mm forceps was inserted via an umbilical incision...

BACKGROUND: Vaginal birth is a safe mode of birth for most women who have had a prior caesarean with a transverse incision. Despite the evidence, most Taiwanese women who have had a previous caesarean are rarely offered the opportunity to consider any possibility other than a repeat caesarean. AIM: This study explored factors affecting Taiwanese women's decisionmaking regarding vaginal birth after cesarean. METHODS: Ajzen's Theory of Planned Behaviour provided the theoretical framework to underpin the study, which adopted an interpretive descriptive methodology...

Double-hit lymphoma (DHL) has been identified as a subset of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with poor clinical outcomes. It is because of genetic translocation of C-myc and Bcl2 gene that make it more aggressive and un-responsive to conventional and salvage treatments. DHLis an extremely rare entity of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) having no established incidence data so far. In literature very limited data is available to guide therapeutic decisions and despite aggressive chemotherapy followed by autologus hematopoietic cell transplantation, outcomes still remain poor...

BACKGROUND: Many guidelines advocate the use of shared decision making for men with newly diagnosed prostate cancer. Decision aids can facilitate the process of shared decision making. Implicit in this approach is the idea that physicians understand which elements of treatment matter to patients. Little formal work exists to guide physicians or developers of decision aids in identifying these attributes. We use a mixed-methods technique adapted from marketing science, the 'Voice of the Patient', to describe and identify treatment elements of value for men with localized prostate cancer...

BACKGROUND: Anatomic reinsertion of the distal biceps is critical for restoring flexion and supination strength. Single- and double-incision surgical techniques have been reported, analyzing complications and outcomes measures. Which technique results in superior clinical outcomes and the lowest associated complications remains unclear. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesized that rerupture rates would be similar between the 2 techniques, while nerve complications would be higher for the single-incision technique and heterotopic ossification would be more frequent with the double-incision technique...

BACKGROUND: Ventral incisional hernia is the most common long-term complication after an abdominal operation. Among newly diagnosed colorectal cancer patients, we screened the preoperative plasma proteome to explore predictive markers for the development of an incisional hernia. METHODS: We utilized preoperative plasma samples of 72 newly diagnosed colorectal cancer patients who underwent midline incision for tumor resection between 2010 and 2013. A total of 21 patients with incisional hernia occurrence were matched with 51 patients with at least 18 months follow-up without an incisional hernia by sex, age, and body mass index...

Compartment syndrome is an orthopedic emergency with a multitude of etiologies. Although it is most commonly associated with trauma to the extremity, hematoma and infection are 2 rare etiologies of insidious compartment syndrome. Proteus mirabilis is an opportunistic gram-negative species that can infect the respiratory tract, urinary tract, and open wounds. The authors present the case of a 69-year-old woman who developed tissue necrosis and compartment syndrome secondary to an untreated hematoma infected by P mirabilis...

INTRODUCTION: Palatal fistulas anterior to the incisive foramen, generally seen as a complication of cleft lip and cleft palate repair, can be extremely difficult to repair. The requirements of the defect necessitate nasal lining, oral lining, and bone for maxillary arch continuity. Local pedicled flap has limited use in such patients with extensive scarring from previous surgeries. The authors have recently described a technique involving osteocutaneous free-tissue transfer of second toe for anterior oronasal fistulas...

BACKGROUND: Increasing experience with minimally invasive surgery and the development of new instruments has resulted in a tendency toward reducing the number of abdominal skin incisions. Retrospective and randomized prospective studies could show the feasibility of single-incision surgery without any increased risk to the patient. However, large prospective multicenter observational datasets do not currently exist. OBJECTIVE: This prospective multicenter observational quality study will provide a relevant dataset reflecting the feasibility and safety of single-incision surgery...

BACKGROUND: A perianal abscess is a collection of pus under the skin, around the anus. It usually occurs due to an infection of an anal gland. In the UK, the annual incidence is 40 per 100,000 of the adult population, and the standard treatment is admission to hospital for incision and drainage under general anaesthetic. Following drainage of the pus, an internal dressing (pack) is placed into the cavity to stop bleeding. Common practice is for community nursing teams to change the pack regularly until the cavity heals...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Cesarean myomectomy is a controversial issue. It was considered relatively contraindicated for many years due to increased risk of intraoperative hemorrhage. Recent studies showed that cesarean myomectomy in some women may not be associated with increased morbidity. The aim of the study was to determine the causes and risk factors for intraoperative hemorrhage in patients subjected to cesarean myomectomy. METHODS: This retrospective study included women subjected to cesarean myomectomy, divided into the study group of 36 patients in whom intraoperative hemorrhage was registered, and the control group of 66 patients in whom it was absent...

Torsion of the pregnant uterus, at term, is a very rare event in obstetric practice. It is associated with high perinatal mortality. We are reporting a case of uterine torsion, where a booked second gravida with previous lower segment cesarean section underwent an emergency cesarean section due to severe lower abdominal pain, persistent fetal tachycardia and poor Bishop Score. Following delivery of baby and placenta, uterus untwisted on itself through 180 degrees and it was realized that the incision had been made on the posterior wall of the uterus...

BACKGROUND: Pre-eclampsia is a complication of pregnancy responsible for high rates of morbidity and mortality, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. When undetected or poorly managed, it may progress to eclampsia which further worsens the prognosis. While most studies examining pre-eclampsia have used a bio-medical model, this study recognizes the role of the socio-cultural environment, in order to understand perceptions of pre-eclampsia within the community. METHODS: The study was conducted in Ogun State, Nigeria in 2011-2012...
