Summary of "What to do when the air test is positive during laparoscopic rectal cancer excision - video vignette."

Anastomotic leak is one of the common and serious complications after laparoscopic rectal cancer excision. Anastomotic leak not only causes abdominal infection and endangers life, but also promotes local recurrence of tumour. So, prevention of anastomotic leak is very important. Most surgeons like to perform an air test when the anastomosis is completed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

Positive test results in subjects who do not possess the attribute for which the test is conducted. The labeling of healthy persons as diseased when screening in the detection of disease. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)

Tumors or cancer of the RECTUM.

A virulent form of dengue characterized by THROMBOCYTOPENIA and an increase in vascular permeability (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive pain test (e.g., TOURNIQUET PAIN TEST). When accompanied by SHOCK (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome.

A projective test used to evaluate a broad range of personality variables including pathology of thought and perception. The subject's responses to inkblot prints are scored along with subjective interpretation by the test administrator.
