Expectant management of gallbladder stones after endoscopic removal of common bile duct stones.

Wait-and-see policy after endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) for common bile duct (CBD) stones in patients with concomitant gallbladder stones may lead to recurrent biliary complications. The aim of this study was to assess the short and long-term results of wait-and-see policy in patients with intact gallbladder after endoscopic clearance of CBD stones.

An updated comparison of high- and low-viscosity cement vertebroplasty in the treatment of osteoporotic thoracolumbar vertebral compression fractures: A retrospective cohort study.

This study mainly aimed to evaluate complications of cement leakage for osteoporotic thoracolumbar vertebral compression fractures by PVP using HVC, and access the clinical efficacy.

Lasagna plots to visualize results in surgical studies.

A lasagna plot is a graphical tool that can display multiple longitudinal outcomes. To our knowledge, lasagna plots have not been used in publications of surgical studies before. The objective of this study was to demonstrate the results of surgical randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with lasagna plots in order to assess whether this can lead to new observations of the data presented in the original studies.

A novel surgical strategy for secondary hyperparathyroidism: Purge parathyroidectomy.

This study was intended to demonstrate the feasibility and efficacy of purge parathyroidectomy (PPTX) for patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT).

Assault in children admitted to trauma centers: Injury patterns and outcomes from a 5-year review of the national trauma data bank.

While assault is commonly reported or suspected in children with traumatic wounds, a recent overview of these injuries, especially those requiring trauma surgery consultation is lacking in the literature.

Is intramedullary fixation of displaced midshaft clavicle fracture superior to plate fixation? Evidence from a systematic review of discordant meta-analyses.

An increasing number of meta-analyses comparing intramedullary fixation (IF) with plate fixation (PF) for displaced midshaft clavicle fracture have been reported, but the inconsistent results obtained might confuse decision-making. We systematically reviewed discordant meta-analyses for assisting the decision-maker in interpreting and selecting amongst discordant meta-analyses and providing surgical recommendations for displaced midshaft clavicle fracture according to currently best available evidence.

Intramedullary nails versus sliding hip screws for AO/OTA 31-A2 trochanteric fractures in adults: A meta-analysis.

The optimum treatment with intramedullary nails (IMN) or sliding hip screws (SHS) for type 31-A2 trochanteric fractures remains controversial. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to compare IMN with SHS in AO/OTA 31-A2 trochanteric fractures.

Religious barriers to head transplantation: An Islamic viewpoint.

Patients criteria determining difficulty of the laparoscopic lateral transperitoneal adrenalectomy. A retrospective cohort study.

Identification of patients in whom adrenalectomy may be more difficult, can help in decision making in borderline and doubtful cases. The aim of the study was to determine patients criteria influencing difficulty of laparoscopic lateral transperitoneal adrenalectomy (LTA).

Prognostic factors in patients treated with surgery for brain metastases: A single-center retrospective analysis of 125 patients.

Brain metastases are the most common malignant intracranial tumors,however, the prognosis of patients is still poor despite multiple treatment have been applicated.The aim of this study was to analyse parameters influence overall survival from patient, tumor and treatment. Summarized characteristics of long-time(>2 years) survivors furtherly.

Risk-adjusted adverse outcomes in complex abdominal wall hernia repair with biologic mesh: A case series of 140 patients.

Biologic mesh is preferred for repair of complex abdominal wall hernias (CAWHs) in patients at high risk of wound infection. We aimed to identify predictors of adverse outcomes after complex abdominal wall hernia repair (CAWR) using biologic mesh with different placement techniques and under different surgical settings.

Application of a narrow-surface cage in full endoscopic minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion.

Spinal endoscopy has been widely applied in lumbar discectomy and decompression. However, endoscopic lumbar interbody fusion still remains a technical challenge due to the limited space within the working trocar for cage implantation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of using a narrow-surface fusion cage in full endoscopic minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) for the treatment of lumbar degenerative disease.

Who requires emergency surgery for colorectal cancer and can national screening programmes reduce this need?

Patients undergoing emergency colorectal cancer (CRC) surgery are at higher risk of poor outcome than those managed electively. The aim of this national study is to identify groups at high risk of undergoing unplanned CRC surgery and assess short and long-term outcome in this cohort subsequent morbidity and mortality as well as quantify their long-term survival.

A laparoscopic approach is associated with a decreased incidence of SSI in patients undergoing palliative surgery for malignant bowel obstruction.

Several authors have reported on the utility of a laparoscopic approach for the palliation of malignant bowel obstruction (MBO); however, the advantages of laparoscopic surgery for MBO have not yet been confirmed.

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 ...
