We report a very rare case of mitral valve dissection and aortic-left ventricular tunnel caused by possible autoimmune vasculitis. We suspected Behcet's disease in this patient. There was no obvious clinical evidence of infective endocarditis. Echocardiography is the diagnostic tool of choice to recognize valvular dysfunction, related pathology, and possible complications. The patient may require immunosuppressive therapy due to the high likelihood of recurrence in the perioperation period.

Purpose: Open adrenalectomy (OA) remains the gold standard of surgical therapy for adrenocortical carcinoma, while the role of laparoscopic approach is controversial. We aim to explore the influence of surgical approaches on the oncologic prognosis of adrenocortical carcinoma by comparing the short-term outcomes of patients undergoing OA with those undergoing laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA). Patients and methods: We retrospectively analyzed the baseline characteristics, perioperative data and short-term prognosis of 42 patients diagnosed with stage I-III adrenocortical carcinoma, receiving OA (n=22) and LA (n=20) as primary therapy...

The Asia Consensus Statement (ACS) on the NCCN Guideline (NCCN-ACS) for treatment of bladder cancer version 1.2016 is designed to provide documentation of modifications of the 'parent' NCCN Guideline: Bladder Cancer (Version 2.2015). When considering ethnic differences or differences in health regulatory environments between Western and Asian countries, a process of adaptation to match the circumstances is helpful for utilizing the guidelines. The NCCN-ACS for bladder cancer consist of 11 ACSs, focused on diagnosis, imaging, surgical treatment, adjuvant intravesical chemotherapy or immunotherapy, periopererative (neodjuvant or adjuvant) chemotherapy and radiation oncology including bladder preservation...

The study was to comprehensively compare the postoperative outcome and imaging parameter characters in a short/middle period between the percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) and the internal fixation of bone graft fusion (the most common form is posterior lumbar interbody fusion [PLIF]) for the treatment of adjacent segment lumbar disc prolapse with stable retrolisthesis after a previous lumbar internal fixation surgery.In this retrospective case-control study, we collected the medical records from 11 patients who received PELD operation (defined as PELD group) for and from 13 patients who received the internal fixation of bone graft fusion of lumbar posterior vertebral lamina decompression (defined as control group) for the treatment of the lumbar disc prolapse combined with stable retrolisthesis at Department of Spine Surgery, the Third Hospital of Hebei Medical University (Shijiazhuang, China) from May 2010 to December 2015...

Surgical operation in treating obesity and type 2 diabetes is popularizing rapidly in China. Correct prevention and recognition of perioperation-related operative complications is the premise of ensuring surgical safety. Familiar complications of the operation include deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary artery embolism, anastomotic bleeding, anastomotic fistula and marginal ulcer. The prevention of deep venous thrombosis is better than treatment. The concrete measures contain physical prophylaxis (graduated compression stocking and intermittent pneumatic compression leg sleeves) and drug prophylaxis (unfractionated heparin and low molecular heparin), and the treatment is mainly thrombolysis or operative thrombectomy...

BACKGROUND: The survival benefits of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for esophagus squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains controversial. The surgical procedure was not well defined in NAC strategy, in past trials. The different surgical procedure and different levels of lymphadenectomy may decrease the survival benefits from NAC. The new chemotherapy regimen with paclitaxel is promising. The purpose of this study is to confirm the superiority of paclitaxel, cisplatin and McKeown esophagectomy with total two-field lymphadenectomy compared with surgery alone for ESCC...

Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of perioperational management of gynecological cancer patients with severe internal medical complications. Methods: We collected 37 cases of gynecological cancer patients with severe internal medical complications who were hospitalized in Peking University First Hospital from Jan. 2010 to Nov. 2014. All of the cases were planned to move to ICU right after operation based on the preoperational assessment of anesthetist and physician. The median age was 69.4 years, and 25 cases (68%,25/37) of them were over 70 years old...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the safety of implantation permanent pacemaker (PM) at different times in patients with dual antiplatelet (DAPT) therapy after implantation of drug-eluting stent (DES). METHODS: A total of 105 patients who implanted pacemakers with DAPT therapy (clopidogrel and aspirin) after implantation of DES admitted to our hospital from January 2009 to January 2015 were enrolled in the study. The patients were divided into 3 groups: dual antiplatelet therapy (DAP) group: implanting PM within 3 months after coronary stenting, continuous DAPT during perioperative period; low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) bridging group: implanting PM within 3 to 6 months after coronary stenting, DAPT interruption for 5 days replaced with subcutaneous injection of enoxaparin (1 mg/kg), twice per day, enoxaparin was stopped 12 h before operation; asprin group, implanting PM after coronary stenting 6 months, clopidogrel interruption for 5 days...

BACKGROUND: The management of a small aortic root at the time of aortic valve replacement is controversial. In cases in which the aortic root is very small the choice of aortic valve type and of root-enlargement method is difficult. The technical challenge of the small aortic root has instigated the creation of methods for annular enlargement. Severe mismatch as a predictor of overall 30-day mortality or midterm mortality reports about long-term results of aortic valve replacement using autologous pericardial patch are scarce...

All available surgical treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) have their individual advantages or disadvantages. However, the lack of head-to-head studies comparing different surgeries makes it unavailable to conduct direct analysis. To compare the efficacy and safety among different lasers and transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) for BPH, randomized controlled trials were searched in MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane library, WHO International Clinical Trial Registration Platform, and Clinical Trial...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP) showed advantage of perioperation outcomes for benign and low-grade tumor of the pancreas. The application of LDP for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) didn't gain popular acceptance and the number of LDP for PDAC remains low. We designed a case-matched study to analysis the short- and long-term outcomes of the patients undergoing either Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy or open distal pancreatectomy for PDAC. METHOD: From 2003 to 2013, 17 patients were underwent LDP and 34 patients were underwent ODP for PDAC were matched by tumor size, age and body mass index (BMI)...

Although percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is more accessible and less time-demanding compared with surgical tracheostomy (ST), it has its own limitations. We introduced a modified PDT technique and brought some surgical knowledge to the bedside to overcome some standard percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy relative contraindications. PDT uses a blind route of tracheal access that usually requires perioperational imaging guidance to protect accidental injuries. Moreover, there are contraindications in certain cases, limiting widespread PDT application...
