Data about prognostic value of postoperative fever in gastric cancer was lacking. Thus, the present study aims to investigate the prognostic value of postoperative fever in gastric cancer. From September 2008 to March 2015, 2938 gastric cancer patients were enrolled in the present study. Clinicopathological features were recoded. The association between postoperative fever and prognosis of gastric cancer were analyzed. There were 2294 male (78.1%) and 644 female (21.9%). Seven hundred and fifty-six patients suffered from fever...

Preoperative pulmonary function assessment is used to select surgical candidates and predict the occurrence of postoperative complications. The present study enrolled 1210 gastric cancer patients (949 males and 261 females). Forced vital capacity (FVC) and maximal voluntary ventilation (MVV) were measured as a percent of predicted values. We then analyzed associations between patient pulmonary function and both prognosis and postoperative complications. Patient 1-, 3- and 5-year overall survival rates were 88...

BACKGROUND: Although there are many postoperative febrile causes, surgical site infection has always been considered as one of the major causes, but it should be excluded; we encountered many patients who showed delayed postoperative fever that was not related to wound infection after spinal surgery. We aimed to determine the incidence of delayed postoperative fever and its characteristics after spinal surgery, and to analyze the causal factors. METHODS: A total of 250 patients who underwent any type of spinal surgery were analyzed...

Postoperative fever after cardiac surgery is a common occurrence. Most fevers are benign and self-limiting resulting from inflammation caused by surgical trauma and blood contact with cardiopulmonary bypass circuit resulting in the release of cytokines. Only a small percentage of time is postoperative fever due to an infection complicating surgery. The presence of fever frequently triggers a battery of diagnostic tests that are costly, could expose the patient to unnecessary risks, and can produce misleading or inconclusive results...

Typhoid fever is a public health challenge mostly concentrated in impoverished, overcrowded areas of the developing world, with lack of safe drinking and sanitation. The most serious complication is typhoid intestinal perforation (TIP), observed in 0.8% to 39%, with a striking rate difference between high-income and low-middle-income countries. Although the mortality rate consequent to TIP in resource-poor countries is improved in the last decades, it is still fluctuating from 5% to 80%, due to surgical- and not surgical-related constraints...

Postoperative fever after orthopaedic surgery is a controversial clinical problem in daily practice because damaged tissue due to surgical intervention can induce the production of proinflammatory cytokines responsible of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome. No current diagnostic marker can differentiate with sufficient accuracy infectious from non-infectious fever in patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery, but early diagnosis of postoperative orthopaedic infections is important in order to rapidly initiate adequate antimicrobial therapy...

A 5-year-old boy with acute abdominal pain in the right lower quadrant and fever underwent open appendectomy following clinical observation and serial equivocal ultrasound. During exploration we encountered a normal-looking appendix but multiple enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes, suggestive of mesenteric lymphadenitis. The boy had an uneventful postoperative course and recovered completely.

RATIONALE: Bacterial meningitis (BM) has been recognized as a rare complication of spinal surgery. However, there are few reports on the management of postoperative BM in patients who have undergone spinal surgery. The initial approach to the treatment of patients suspected with acute BM depends on the stage at which the syndrome is recognized, the speed of the diagnostic evaluation, and the need for antimicrobial and adjunctive therapy. PATIENT CONCERNS: Here, we report the case of a patient with lumbar spinal stenosis and underwent a transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion at L4-L5...

PURPOSE: Over recent years, 5-aminoluvolinic acid (5ALA) has been increasingly used for resection guidance in adult high-grade gliomas. However, amongst pediatric patients, publication of intraoperative fluorescence has been limited, with inconsistent outcomes. We describe our experience and intraoperative finding amongst children with various brain tumors that were given 5ALA prior to tumor resection. METHODS: Since October 2014, data regarding intraoperative findings amongst children that received 5ALA prior to tumor resection were prospectively collected...

BACKGROUND: Undifferentiated high-grade pleomorphic sarcoma in gastrointestinal tract is extremely rare, and its prognosis is poor. CASE PRESENTATION: An 82-year-old man visited a previous hospital complaining of fever, general fatigue, and shaking chill, for which he received antibiotics therapy. As the fever continued, he was referred to our hospital, where computed tomography and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a 6-cm gastric tumor. A preoperative biopsy was consistent with a malignant mesenchymal tumor, but could not provide a definitive pathological diagnosis nor prove a cause-and-effect relationship between the chief complaint and the gastric tumor...
