The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
The feasibility and potential advantages of elective surgery after manual reduction of incarcerated hernia (IH) have not been investigated in detail. Therefore, the aim of this retrospective study was to compare perioperative outcomes of emergency surgery to those of elective surgery after reduction of IH.
A superior lumbar hernia is a posterior ventral hernia that is rarely encountered in the clinical setting. However, no standard operative strategy exists for superior lumbar hernia repair at present.
Diverticula of the appendix (DA) are infrequent and their clinical implications are often overlooked. Several studies have found a significantly increased prevalence of neoplasms in appendiceal specimens with diverticula. Despite the potential clinical implications, there is a paucity of literature. A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the prevalence of DA and its association with neoplasia.
In the late 1990s, concerns regarding the introduction of new surgical procedures arose following the rapid uptake of some minimally invasive procedures. At that time, the evidence was not clear on the safety and effectiveness of these new procedures, and it was recommended that data be collected to look at both short- and long-term outcomes. Based on a UK group, 'the Safety and Efficacy Register of New Interventional Procedures (SERNIP)', the Australian SERNIP was born under the auspices of the Royal Austr...
Pancreatitis secondary to hypertriglyceridaemia is rare, accounting for less than 5% of pancreatitis presentations. We reviewed our institutional experience with triglyceridaemia induced acute pancreatitis to report the clinical presentation, patient demographics and clinical management.
This study aimed to identify the most common potentially avoidable factors in urology deaths, focusing on the lessons that can be learnt.
The advantages of simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (sim-BTKA) remain controversial. This study investigated the effects of two-surgeon sim-BTKA compared to separate admission staged BTKA regarding intraoperative and post-operative outcomes and health service costs.
The year 1969 marked a revolution in the diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC). It is when Dr Wolff developed the colonoscope and quickly realized its potential in both diagnosis and treatment of colonic neoplasms. Over the past 50 years there has been exponential increase in utilization of colonoscopy with over 1 million colonoscopies performed annually throughout Australasia. Endoscopic removal of pre-malignant lesions has been proven to reduce the incidence and mortality of colorectal. Although timing a...
Within the last decade, advances and availability in radiological imaging have led to an increase in the detection of incidental liver lesions (ILLs) in the asymptomatic patient population. This poses a diagnostic conundrum. This study was undertaken to review the outcome of liver lesions labelled as 'indeterminate' in asymptomatic patients without a biopsy-proven concomitant primary tumour. The secondary aim was to assess the impact on healthcare resources and cost-effectiveness with regards to the frequen...
