OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of preoperative axillary staging with ultrasound (US) and fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Can we avoid intraoperative sentinel lymph node (SLN) examination, with an acceptable revision rate by preoperative staging? DESIGN: This study is based on the retrospective data of 336 patients that underwent US evaluation of the axilla as part of their staging. A FNAC biopsy was performed when abnormal lymph nodes were visualized. Patients with normal appearing nodes on US or a benign diagnostic biopsy had removal of the SLNs without intraoperative pathological examination...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer and the fourth most common cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Besides the lymphatic and haematogenous routes of dissemination, CRC frequently gives rise to transcoelomic spread of tumor cells in the peritoneal cavity, which ultimately leads to peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC). PC is associated with a poor prognosis and bad quality of life for these patients in their terminal stages of disease. A loco-regional treatment modality for PC combining cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal peroperative chemotherapy has resulted in promising clinical results...

Routine use of nasogastric tubes for gastric decompression has been abolished in nearly all types of gastro-intestinal surgery after introduction of enhanced recovery after surgery programs. However, in esophagectomy the routine use of nasogastric decompression is still a matter of debate. To determine the effects of routine nasogastric decompression following esophagectomy compared with early or peroperative removal of the nasogastric tube on pulmonary complications, anastomotic leakage, mortality, and postoperative recovery...

Peroperative imaging with indocyanin green (ICG) is developing to increase safety in dissecting anatomical structures during hepatobiliary surgery. Images obtained with the fluorescence camera rely on concentrations measured in liver regions of interest. However, how ICG sinusoidal uptake and hepatocyte elimination rates generate ICG hepatocyte concentrations is largely unknown. To investigate such issue and better understand the role of membrane transporters in generating ICG hepatocyte concentrations, we perfused ICG in livers isolated from normal livers...

Posterior wall with transverse acetabular fractures represents the most common type of acetabular fractures and is generally associated with poorer outcomes. This is caused by improper visualization of the fragments leading to imperfect reductions. Navigation in pelvic and acetabular trauma is reserved nowadays to non-displaced or mildly displaced fractures. To add to that, perioperative control of reduction is difficult using the conventional X-ray. The described 3D imaging method allowed proper reduction control...
