BACKGROUND: Echinococcosis is an uncommonly encountered zoonotic disease caused by the taeniid Echinococcus. The only endemic species in Australia, Echinococcus granulosus, forms cysts in the liver in 70% of cases. The aim of this study was to review the literature to provide an evidence-based narrative update on the diagnosis and management of hepatic cystic echinococcosis in Australia. METHODS: We reviewed the literature, utilizing multiple research databases and citation tracking...

BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) is one of the most common conditions encountered in neurosurgical practice. Recurrence, observed in 5-30% of patients, is a major clinical problem. The temperature of the irrigation fluid used during evacuation of the hematoma might theoretically influence recurrence rates since irrigation fluid at body temperature (37 (o)C) may beneficially influence coagulation and cSDH solubility when compared to irrigation fluid at room temperature. Should no difference in recurrence rates be observed when comparing irrigation-fluid temperatures, there is no need for warmed fluids during surgery...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to provide otolaryngologists with the most up-to-date advancements in both the medical and surgical management of CF-related sinus disease. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent studies have supported more aggressive CRS management, often with a combination of both medical and surgical therapies. Comprehensive treatment strategies have been shown to reduce hospital admissions secondary to pulmonary exacerbations in addition to improving CRS symptoms...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Implantation of a penile prosthesis in a patient with significant corporal fibrosis can pose a significant challenge to the surgeon, necessitating the knowledge of specific techniques used to dilate and close aggressively scarred corpora. The objective of our instructional video is to discuss 2 techniques used to approach corporal fibrosis: proper and safe use of cavernotomes for dilation and use of narrower prostheses. METHODS: In this video, we present a 53-year-old man with a history of priapism 3 years ago that lasted 4 days in the setting of trazodone use...

Surgical site infection (SSI) after immediate breast reconstruction is much more common than would be expected after a clean surgical procedure. Although the SSI rates reported in individual studies are quite variable, there are no obvious explanations for the variation in infection rates between institutions. The microbiology of these SSIs is unusual, with higher proportions of infections caused by atypical Myobacterium species and Gram-negative bacilli than would be expected for this anatomic site. In an effort to prevent SSIs, many surgeons use a variety of different practices including irrigation and soaking of implants with antibiotic solutions and prolonged duration of prophylactic antibiotics, although the literature to support these practices is very sparse...

BACKGROUND: Acute septic arthritis of the knee in children may be treated by arthroscopic or open methods however paediatric data comparing these methods is limited regarding both short and long-term outcomes. This study aimed to compare outcomes following arthroscopic versus open surgery for acute paediatric septic knee arthritis. METHODS: Paediatric patients with acute knee septic arthritis treated at our institution from 1996 to 2016 were retrospectively assessed...

REVIEW

Ocular chemical burns are an ophthalmic emergency and are responsible for 11.5% to 22.1% of ocular injuries. Immediate copious irrigation is universally recommended in acute ocular burns to remove the offending agent and minimize damage. Conventional medical therapy consists of the use of agents that promote epithelialization, minimize inflammation, and prevent cicatricial complications. Biological fluids such as autologous serum, umbilical cord blood serum, platelet-rich plasma, and amniotic membrane suspension are a rich source of growth factors and promote healing when used as adjuncts to conventional therapy...

Two-octyl cyanoacrylate is a popular skin adhesive used for closing surgical incisions. Since Food and Drug Administration approval in 1998, the few reports of adverse reactions following its use have primarily been limited to the nonorthopedic literature. The authors present a case series of contact dermatitis associated with 2-octyl cyanoacrylate following orthopedic surgery and a review of the literature on the diagnosis and treatment of this complication. All 3 patients presented with blistering around their incisions within 2 weeks of surgery and responded to treatment involving removal of the offending agent and use of oral diphenhydramine and hydroxyzine and topical triamcinolone...

BACKGROUND: Many perforated peptic ulcers (PPUs) require surgical repair due to diffuse peritonitis. However, few studies have examined the clinical effects of postoperative drainage after PPU repair. This study aimed to investigate the drain insertion rates in patients who underwent PPU repair in Japan, and to clarify the impact of drain insertion on the postoperative clinical course. METHODS: A retrospective nationwide cohort study was performed using administrative claims data of patients who had undergone PPU repair between 2010 and 2016...

BACKGROUND: Meconium ileus is a common cause of neonatal intestinal obstruction. Various surgical procedures are in practice for uncomplicated meconium ileus. Bishop Koop ileostomy allows distal passage of gut content and uses the distal absorptive area. T tube ileostomy avoids the need for gut resection and formal closure of stoma. The aim of this prospective interventional study was to compare the outcome of T-tube ileostomy and Bishop Koop ileostomy for the treatment of uncomplicated meconium ileus...

BACKGROUND: Calcified chronic subdural hematoma (CCSDH) is a rare disease for which no standard approach to treatment has been established. Reports covering both burr hole trepanation and craniotomy for CCSDH are rare. Furthermore, infection of CCSDH after the burr hole trepanation has not been reported in the literature. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 61-year-old man presented with left frontotemporoparietal CCSDH demonstrated on computed tomography (CT) scan. The patient underwent 2 separate burr hole trepanations with intraoperative irrigation and postoperative drainage...

AIM: To consider surgical tactics and to study the immediate results of primary enteroenterostomy in surgical treatment of malignant colonic obstruction. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Radical surgery was performed in 170 (63.9%) out of 266 patients with malignant obstructive colonic obstruction. Colonic resection followed by anastomosis was performed in 68 patients. Conventional hemicolectomy (9 patients) and various original techniques of Y-shaped ileotransversanastomoses (27 patients) were used for right-sided tumor process...

BACKGROUND: A relevant irrigating and flushing maneuver during cerebral microsurgical procedures allows for a neat and optimal operative field. However, when operating on the deep region of the brain, a delicately created slim surgical corridor could unintentionally hinder the assisting surgeon from properly performing this routine maneuver. METHOD: To address this problem, the authors devised a useful and convenient irrigation system that can be used during cerebral microsurgery...

We discuss the long-term results of 8 spinal HC patients who were monitored at our clinic for 7-15 years. METHODS: The demographic data and clinicopathological parameters of 8 spinal HC patients diagnosed between 2000-2016 were evaluated for their contribution to recurrence and long-term follow-up results were examined. RESULTS: Four male and 4 female patients with a median age of 30...

PURPOSE: Intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) is a valuable tool during vitreoretinal surgery, helping the decision-making process. It is particularly useful in pediatric cases to evaluate the macular anatomy intraoperatively, avoiding further potentially dangerous surgery in children. The aim of this report is to describe the role of integrated iOCT in the management of traumatic hyphema in a pediatric patient. CASE REPORT: A 5-year-old girl was referred to our department with a history of recent domestic trauma in her right eye...

A 67-year-old female patient developed an esophagocutaneous fistula 4 mo after C4 and C5 partial corpectomy. Plain radiograph and computed tomography (CT) scan of cervical spine showed inferior screws pullout with plate migration that caused the esophageal perforation. Management included removal of anterior hardware, revision C4-5 corpectomy, iliac crest strut autograft and halo orthosis immobilization. The fistula was treated using antibiotics and a 10-french gauge rubber tube for daily irrigation and Penrose drain...
