BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leakage is one of the most feared complications of rectal resections. The role of drains in limiting this occurrence or facilitating its early recognition is still poorly defined. We aimed to study whether the presence of prophylactic pelvic drains affects the surgical outcomes of patients undergoing rectal surgery with extraperitoneal anastomosis. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library were systematically searched for randomized controlled trials comparing drained with undrained anastomoses following rectal surgery...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To describe the left lateral extraperitoneal approach to perform complete para-aortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy and transverse total hysterectomy from left to right as a novel approach to treat obese patients with endometrial cancer. Laparoscopic management of obese patients represents a challenge for the gynecological surgeon. The extraperitoneal approach is technically easier in the obese patient as it naturally creates a bowel-free operative field. DESIGN: A prospective pilot bicentric and descriptive study (Canadian Task Force III) evaluating the feasibility and reproducibility of the transverse total hysterectomy and complete lymphadenectomy through left endoscopic extraperitoneal approach in obese patients with endometrial cancer...

We report a case of renal artery pseudoaneurysm at the anastomosis site complicated with arterioureteral fistula (AUF) in a 57-year-old kidney transplant recipient who presented with intermittent massive hematuria at one month post-transplant. We successfully treated the pseudoaneurysm and AUF with endovascular covered stent implantation. The diagnosis of AUF is rare and it is a condition that occurs in patients with previous pelvic or vascular surgery, chronic ureteral catheterization and radiotherapy. This diagnosis requires the expertise of the urologist, vascular surgeon and interventional radiologist...

INTRODUCTION: Recently, trauma management has been markedly improved with interventional radiology (IVR) and damage-control strategies. However, the indications for its use in hemodynamically unstable patients with severe trauma remains unclear. In some cases, IVR may be more effective than surgery for damage-control hemostasis; however, performing IVR in life-threatening trauma settings is challenging. To address this, we practiced and evaluated a trauma-management system with emergency physicians who trained for both severe trauma management, and techniques of surgery and IVR...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of pelvic ring fractures in the elderly significantly increased. Because of persistent pain and immobilization associated with this injury, surgical treatment is recommended. To minimise comorbidities and surgical risk, percutaneous techniques are becoming more relevant. In-screw cement augmentation of sacroiliac screw fixation is a promising procedure; however, clinical follow-up data remain scarce. This study investigated the safety and possible complications of the procedure along with a 1-year follow-up...
