BACKGROUND: Bertolotti's syndrome is a spinal disorder characterized by abnormal enlargement of the transverse process of the most caudal lumbar vertebra. The L5 transverse process may be enlarged either unilaterally or bilaterally and may articulate or fuse with the sacrum or ilium. Pseudoarticulation between the transverse process of the L5 and the alar of the sacrum can cause buttock pain and leg pain. In addition, the L4 exiting nerve root could be compressed by an enlarged L5 transverse process...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Anastomotic leakage remains the most serious complications of colorectal surgery. To prevent colorectal anastomotic leakage (CAL), an air leak test (ALT) with intraoperative colonoscopy (IOCS) is performed to detect mechanically insufficient colorectal anastomoses. The approaches to an intraoperative anastomotic air leak (IOAL) have not been fully investigated. This study aimed to clarify the safe management of an IOAL in laparoscopic colorectal surgery. METHODS: One hundred forty-eight consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic resection with double-stapling technique (DST) anastomosis for left-sided colorectal cancer between April 2015 and June 2016 were included and retrospectively reviewed...

The relational inquiry approach enables nurses to understand and examine different nursing situations within complex healthcare contexts using the ideologies of pragmatism, critical theory, and hermeneutic phenomenology. In this paper, the author presents the application of the relational inquiry approach using Newman's theory to analyze a case of a man who refused coronary artery bypass surgery in Pakistan. This analysis demonstrates that relational inquiry is useful in examining patients' experiences and related healthcare needs and helps the nurses to perform appropriate actions to produce desirable outcomes...

Advances in breast cancer management, including breast-conserving surgery, have resulted in an increase in the incidence of breast oedema. However, this is addressed by professionals less often than arm lymphoedema. Breast oedema results in significant physical and psychological morbidity, makes finding a comfortably fitting bra very difficult, and can act as a reminder of the initial breast cancer diagnosis. Psychological difficulties can be compounded by clinicians' failure to acknowledge the impact. Assessing and managing breast oedema requires a sensitive, skilled approach to ensure all the relevant issues are identified and addressed in a comprehensive care plan; taking time to listen to patients and acknowledging the impact can be very therapeutic...

L Havlůj, V Džupa, R Gürlich
Current polytrauma management is multidisciplinary, with Damage Control Surgery (DCS), Damage Control Orthopaedics (DCO) and Damage Control Resuscitation (DCR) being applied in the first few hours after injury. The most severe group of polytrauma patients are those with circulatory instability and massive blood loss as a consequence of unstable pelvic fractures. In treating these patients, of crucial importance is the speed and quality of stabilisation of pelvic fracture fragments. The authors present two case reports of polytrauma patients with unstable pelvic fractures, in whom open reduction and internal fixation was performed on the anterior fracture segment through extended laparotomy in order to stop bleeding into the abdominopelvic cavity as part of the DCS approach...

In moderately or morbidly obese patients, bariatric surgery has been proven to be an effective therapeutic approach to control body weight and comorbidities. Surgery-mediated modulation of brain function via modified postoperative secretion of gut peptides and vagal nerve stimulation was identified as an underlying mechanism in weight loss and improvement of weight-related diseases. Increased basal and postprandial plasma levels of gastrointestinal hormones like glucagon-like peptide 1 and peptide YY that act on specific areas of the hypothalamus to reduce food intake, either directly or mediated by the vagus nerve, are observed after surgery while suppression of meal-induced ghrelin release is increased...

The kidney is the third most common abdominal organ to be injured in trauma, following the spleen and liver, respectively. The most commonly used classification scheme is the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) classification of blunt renal injuries, which grades renal injury according to the size of laceration and its proximity to the renal hilum. Arteriovenous fistula and pseudoaneurysm are the most common iatrogenic biopsy-related or surgery-related vascular injuries in native kidneys. The approach to renal artery injuries has changed over time from more aggressive intervention to more conservative observational or endovascular management, including selective transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) and the placement of stents/stent grafts...

The best surgical approach for coarctation of the aorta (COA) combined with other cardiac diseases is uncertain. The simultaneous intracardiac repair of complex pathologies is desirable because multistage procedures may lead to a higher rate of mortality. We describe a case involving a 61-year-old woman who was suffering from COA with a concomitant arch aneurysm and coronary artery disease. We managed her case via single-stage surgery that included a median sternotomy.

We report a case of anterior bronchogenic mediastinal cyst (ABMC) in old age patient underwent Robotic Thoracic Surgery (da Vinci Surgical System). Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) represents the routine approach in posterior bronchogenic mediastinal cyst, but some limitation for resection of mediastinal mass located in the anterior mediastinum has been reported. The introduction of da Vinci surgical system has overcome the surgical limits of VATS as two dimensional vision (2D) and the use of long rigid instruments with poor maneuverability in case of fine dissection...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer is increasingly a disease of the elderly and frail population with a median age of 70 years at diagnosis. Therefore, consideration of the impact of interventions on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and not only absolute survival is especially important. For non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been gaining popularity over the last few decades, replacing traditional open lobectomies. For high-risk patients who are not deemed suitable for surgery, stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) provides a potentially curative alternative...

More than half of primary lung cancers are not resectable at diagnosis and 40% of deaths may be secondary to loco-regional disease. Many of these patients suffer from symptoms related to airways obstruction. Indications for therapeutic endoscopic treatment are palliation of dyspnea and other obstructive symptoms in advanced cancerous lesions and cure of early lung cancer. Bronchoscopic management is also indicated for all those patients suffering from benign or minimally invasive neoplasm who are not suitable for surgery due to their clinical conditions...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) emerged as a minimally invasive surgery for diseases in the field of thoracic surgery. We herein reviewed our experience on thoracoscopic lobectomy for early lung cancer and evaluated Health System use. METHODS: A cost-effectiveness study was performed comparing VATS vs. open thoracic surgery (OPEN) for lung cancer patients. Demographic data, tumor localization, dynamic pulmonary function tests [forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), diffusion capacity (DLCO) and maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max)], surgical approach, postoperative details, and complications were recorded and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the added clinical value of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scans to chest CT imaging in predicting the conversion to thoracotomy during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy in patients with lung cancer. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 235 consecutive patients who underwent planned VATS lobectomy for primary lung cancer between 2011 and 2015. CT images were interpreted in terms of the presence and the attenuation of peribronchial lymph nodes (PLN) and peribronchial cuffs of soft (PCS) tissue, pleural calcification, and parenchymal calcified nodule...

BACKGROUND: Predicted postoperative FEV1 (ppoFEV1) must be estimated preoperatively prior to surgery for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We evaluated a lung volumetry approach based on chest computed tomography (CT). METHODS: A prospective study was conducted over a period of one year in eligible lung cancer patients to evaluate the difference between ppoFEV1 and the 3-month postoperative FEV1 (poFEV1). Patients in whom CT was performed in another hospital and those with factors influencing poFEV1, such as atelectasis, pleural effusion, pneumothorax, or pneumonia, were excluded...
