Background: The most common site of sarcoma metastasis is the lung. Surgical resection of pulmonary metastases and chemotherapy are treatment options that have been employed, but many patients are poor candidates for these treatments for multiple host or tumor-related reasons. In this group of patients, radiation might provide a less morbid treatment alternative. We sought to evaluate the efficacy of radiotherapy in the treatment of metastatic sarcoma to the lung. Methods: Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) was used to treat 117 pulmonary metastases in 44 patients...

BACKGROUND: Acutely admitted medical patients are often fragile and in risk of future surgery. The biomarker soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) is a predictor of readmission and mortality in the acute care setting. We aimed to investigate if suPAR also predicts acute surgery, which is associated with higher mortality than elective surgery, and if it predicts post-operative mortality. METHODS: A retrospective registry-based cohort study of 17,312 patients admitted to an acute medical unit in Denmark, from 18 November 2013 until 30 September 2015...

Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI), an important cause of maldigestion and malabsorption, results from primary pancreatic diseases or secondarily impaired exocrine pancreatic function. Besides cystic fibrosis and chronic pancreatitis, the most common etiologies of EPI, other causes of EPI include unresectable pancreatic cancer, metabolic diseases (diabetes); impaired hormonal stimulation of exocrine pancreatic secretion by cholecystokinin (CCK); celiac or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) due to loss of intestinal brush border proteins; and gastrointestinal surgery (asynchrony between motor and secretory functions, impaired enteropancreatic feedback, and inadequate mixing of pancreatic secretions with food)...

BACKGROUND: Acute gastrointestinal (GI) wall defects contain a high risk of morbidity and mortality and may be closed endoscopically by a full-thickness over-the-scope clip (OTSC). METHODS: Unselected consecutive patients presenting with acute non-surgical perforations or postoperative anastomotic leaks or perforations underwent attempted OTSC placement as primary closure method after interdisciplinary consensus in three tertiary referral centres. Their clinical data and intervention characteristics were evaluated in an intention to treat analysis during a 24-month period to assess closure rates, 30-day mortality, hospitalization and comorbidity...

PURPOSE: Virtual surgical planning (VSP) has become routine practice in orthognathic treatment planning; however, most surgeons do not perform the planning without technical assistance, nor do they routinely evaluate the accuracy of the postoperative outcomes. The purpose of the present study was to propose a reproducible method that would allow surgeons to have an improved understanding of VSP orthognathic planning and to compare the planned surgical movements with the results obtained...

BACKGROUND: Ventral midline hernia formation following abdominal surgery in horses is an uncommon complication; however, it can have serious consequences leading to increased morbidity and mortality. Currently, mesh hernioplasty is the treatment of choice for large ventral midline hernias in horses to allow potential return to normal function. Complications following mesh hernioplasty using polypropylene or polyester mesh in horses can be serious and similar to complications seen in human patients, including persistent incisional drainage, mesh infection, hernia recurrence, intra-abdominal adhesions, mesh or body wall failure, recurrent abdominal pain (colic), and peritonitis...

PURPOSE: In the literature, the manifestations of gastric cancer have been described based on all patients. In recent times, interest has focused on the subgroup of young patients. In the following analysis, the subgroup of young patients (< 50y) is compared with an older reference group (≥ 50y). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between 01.01.1995 and 31.12.2005, 482 patients with a previously untreated gastric cancer underwent surgery. Fifty-six patients in this group were under 50 years of age, and the remaining 367 patients constituted the reference group...

BACKGROUND: Hiatus hernias are considered as the most prominent form of diaphragmatic hernias. The passage is defined through the oesophageal hiatus, resulting in a superdiaphragmatic displacement of parts of the stomach or the complete stomach, respectively. In our work we investigated the treatment of partial thoracic stomach with both open and minimally invasive surgical procedures emphasising the view on operating data, the success of the surgery and recurrence rates. Patients with mesh insertion for hernia defect closures were considered separately...

Tinnitus is a common complaint in the candidates for cochlear implantation (CI). Tinnitus-related distress has often been measured in these patients using categorical ratings, which lack information about tinnitus severity, stress and health-related quality of life or their correlation. Here, using 4 validated questionnaires, we evaluated psychometric parameters and the quality of life of 32 postlingually deafened patients before and after CI. The data regarding pre-CI were collected retrospectively. Of all patients included in this study, 28 (87...

OBJECTIVES: Long-term Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) predisposes to various secondary middle ear diseases. Most surgical and prosthetical interventions on the Eustachian tube itself have proven to be ineffective, whereas middle ear surgeries treat the sequelae of ETD without major influence on the underlying tubal pathology. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the outcome of laser Eustachian tuboplasty (LETP) on tubal function and associated otological symptoms in topically anesthetized ETD patients with intact or perforated eardrums...

The management of insufficiency fractures of the tibial plateau in osteoporotic patients can be very challenging, since it is difficult to achieve a stable fixation, an essential condition for the patients' early mobilization. We present a minimally invasive technique for the treatment of proximal tibial plateau fractures, "tibiaplasty", using percutaneous polymethylmethacrylate augmentation. Five osteoporotic patients (7 fractures) with a non-traumatic insufficiency tibial plateau fracture were treated with this technique at the authors' institution from 2006 to 2008...
