Surgical volunteerism or voluntourism - Are we doing more harm than good?

The significant rise in the number of international health electives undertaken by medical students and doctors in the US, Canada and UK reflects acknowledgement of the inter-connected nature of these challenges to health systems and the drive to help solve them. However, the next generation of international volunteers often operate under a conflicting duality: whilst many of their role models have devoted their lives to global health following a similar volunteering experience, there are pervasive ethical ...

Feasibility and safety of foam sclerotherapy followed by a multiple subcutaneously interrupt ligation under local anaesthesia for outpatients with varicose veins.

Registry of implants for the reconstruction of pelvic floor in males and females: a feasibility case series.

Most aspects of implant-assisted reconstruction of pelvic floor in males and females are under debate and the research is not standardized. Registries are supposed to shed light to the indications, surgical techniques and material properties and to establish a standardized evaluation.

Total hip arthroplasty for patients with Crowe type IV developmental dysplasia of the hip: ten years results.

The aim of this study was to determine the rate of union, functional results and complications in patients with Crowe IV developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) who underwent cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA) with S-ROM prostheses and subtrochanteric transverse shortening osteotomy.

Surgical Safety Checklist. Procedure for the safety of procedures.

The role of tissue adhesives in esophageal surgery, a systematic review of literature.

Anastomotic leakage following esophageal surgery is a major contributor to mortality. According to the national database leakage occurs in 20% of esophagectomies carried out in the Netherlands. Therefore anastomotic leakage has been the topic of many studies. However, studies discussing application of tissue adhesives for either prevention or management of anastomotic leakage are limited. This article systematically reviewed all available literature on the potential use of tissue adhesives in esophageal sur...

Conversion-to-open in laparoscopic appendectomy: A cohort analysis of risk factors and outcomes.

Identifying risk factors for conversion from laparoscopic to open appendectomy could select patients who may benefit from primary open appendectomy. We aimed to develop a predictive scoring model for conversion from laparoscopic to open based on pre-operative patient characteristics.

Letter to the editor on the article "Adductor canal block versus continuous femoral nerve block in primary total knee arthroplasty: A meta-analysis".

Location is everything: The role of splenic flexure mobilization during colon resection for diverticulitis.

Routine splenic flexure mobilization (SFM) has been previously recommended to ensure an adequate length for a tension free anastomosis during resection for diverticulitis. We sought to evaluate the role of selective SFM for diverticulitis, and its impact on outcomes.

Transanal opening of intersphincteric space(TROPIS)-new procedure to treat high complex anal fistula.

The sepsis in intersphincteric space has important role in pathogenesis of most complex fistula-in-ano. This sepsis is like a small abscess in a closed space. This closed space needs to be drained adequately and then kept open for the fistula-in-ano to heal properly. The aim was to lay open and drain the intersphincteric space through internal opening via transanal approach. This has been tried in submucosal and intersphincteric rectal abscesses but has never been tried in complex fistula-in-ano.

Prognostic and clinical significance of claudin-1 in colorectal cancer: a systemic review and meta-analysis.

The current reports on the association of claudin-1 expression with colorectal cancer (CRC) result were controversial. Thus, we conducted a meta-analysis to assess the correlation between claudin-1 expression and the clinical parameters and assess the prognostic value of claudin-1 in CRC.

Feasibility and safety of minimally invasive radioguided parathyroidectomy using very low intraoperative dose of Tc-99m MIBI.

Surgical resection of the abnormal parathyroid glands is the only curative treatment for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Radioguided parathyroidectomy with technetium-99m (TC-99m) sestamibi has been successfully used in patients with PHPT. This study was designed to evaluate the results of a series of patients with PHPT who underwent minimally invasive radioguided parathyroidectomy (MIRP) using very low dose (1 mCi) of TC-99m sestamibi (MIBI) without application of intraoperative parathyroid hormone (PT...

NHS litigation in bariatric surgery over a ten year period.

Negligence claims in the UK NHS has increased over the last 30 years. The aim of this present study was determine the number of claims and the cost of litigation in Bariatric Surgery and compare it to similar other specialties. Data was received from NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) in response to Freedom of Information data request. There was a total of 7 claims, of which 4 were successful. The total pay out sum was £210,000 in 10 years. This is a very low amount compared to other surgical specialties. Th...

Comparison of peri-articular liposomal bupivacaine and standard bupivacaine for postsurgical analgesia in total knee arthroplasty: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

This meta-analysis aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of intraoperative peri-articular liposomal bupivacaine and standard bupivacaine in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty.

Transvaginal PVDF-mesh for cystocele repair: A cohort Study.

Optimized biocompatibility of new materials is a major requirement for transvaginal meshes for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair. Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) presented good characteristics in prior animal experiments and clinical use in humans.

Preoperative chlorhexidine reduces the incidence of surgical site infections in total knee and hip arthroplasty: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

This meta-analysis aims to assess the incidences of surgical site infection of patients who applied preadmission chlorhexidine skin preparation, versus those who applied the traditional skin preparation before undergoing total knee and hip arthroplasty.

From hysteria to hope: The rise of head transplantation.

A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF PREHABILITATION PROGRAMS IN ABDOMINAL CANCER SURGERY.

Prehabilitation programs aim to optimise patients in order to enhance post-operative recovery. This study aims to review the composition of prehabilitation programs for patients undergoing major abdominal cancer surgery and define the outcome measures that are used to evaluate this intervention.

An Innovative Solution to Raise Public Awareness Using a Mobile Colorectal Clinic - The 'Bowel Bus'.

Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the United Kingdom; however, figures show that the uptake for bowel cancer screening lags behind other cancer screening programmes.

The Charlson age comorbidity index predicts prognosis in patients with resected pancreatic cancer.

The Charlson age comorbidity index (CACI) is a useful measure of comorbidity to standardize the evaluation of surgical patients and has been reported to predict postoperative mortality in various cancers.

Postoperative hypomagnesaemia is not associated with hypocalcemia in thyroid cancer patients undergoing total thyroidectomy plus central compartment neck dissection.

The literature remains scarce and controversial regarding the association of hypomagnesaemia and hypocalcemia after total thyroidectomy. This study aims to assess this association in thyroid cancer patients underwent total thyroidectomy (TT) plus central compartment neck dissection (CCND).

Systematic review with meta-analysis of intraoperative neuromonitoring during thyroidectomy.

Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) has been a commonly used technology during thyroid surgery aimed at reducing the incidence of recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy (RLNP), which is a severe complication and leads to significant impacts on a patient's life. In order to give a comprehensive assessment for potential benefits and disadvantage of IONM, this meta-analysis and systematic review discusses RLNP rate, predictive power, continuous intraoperative neuromonitoring (CIONM), and emphasises application duri...
