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.
Serious blunt chest trauma usually induces hemothorax, pneumothorax, and rib fracture. Early video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) to evacuate retained hemothorax is one commonly used treatment. In this study, a new strategy was implemented to combine VATS with fractured rib fixation simultaneously.
Increasing studies have shown that the use of laryngeal mask airways (LMAs) improved the perioperative respiratory adverse events (PRAEs) in children. However, the results of some of these studies still remained controversial as their sample sizes were small. A systematic review and meta-analysis was designed to evaluate the impact of LMAs in decreasing PRAEs in children.
Robotic resection of benign nonadrenal retroperitoneal tumors (BNRTs) is considered safety and feasibility. However, whether robotic BNRT resection (RBR) is superior to open BNRT resection (OBR) has not been reported. The comparative study was designed to analyze the short outcomes of RBR versus OBR on patients with BNRTs.
Portal vein system thrombosis (PVST) is a common, potentially life-threatening complication after splenectomy. The optimal recognized anticoagulation drugs for preventing PVST in cirrhotic patients after splenectomy remain unclear. The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of warfarin in preventing PVST after laparoscopic splenectomy and azygoportal disconnection (LSD).
To determine whether clinical evaluation reporting using the IDEAL (Idea, Development, Exploration, Assessment and Long-term study) framework improves a novel double-balloon endoscopic stabilization technology.
Letter to the Editor on the article "Is opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy superior to closing-wedge high tibial osteotomy in treatment of unicompartmental osteoarthritis? A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials".
The primary aim of this study was to investigate whether a preoperative elevation in serum CEA is an independent prognostic factor for both 5-year overall and disease-free survival within an Australian patient cohort.
The clinical value of thymus preservation during thyroid carcinoma surgery remains unclear. The aim of this study is to explore the role of bilateral thymus preservation in parathyroid glands (PGs) function and surgical completeness in total thyroidectomy (TT) with bilateral central lymph node dissection (CLND).
Comments on the article "Pathologic complete response implies a fewer number of lymph nodes in specimen of rectal cancer patients treated by neoadjuvant therapy and total mesorectal excision" by Bustamante-Lopez LA, et al., Int. J. Surg. 2018;56:283-7.
Hyperglycemia following elective or emergency surgery is generally associated with an increased risk of complications. The impact of hyperglycemia following surgery for peritoneal surface malignancy remains unclear.
There is controversy regarding the use of laparoscopy for rectal cancer, especially after the ACOSOG Z6051 Randomized Clinical Trial determined that laparoscopy failed to meet non-inferiority compared with open surgery. With these new recommendations, the current practices for the treatment of rectal cancer across the country are unknown.
This prospective double-blind randomized study aimed at evaluating the short- and long-term postoperative analgesic efficacy of the ultrasound-guided tranversus abdominis plane (TAP) block in inguinal hernia repair under general anesthesia.
In cases with clinically suspected appendicitis, there is controversy regarding the decision to remove a macroscopically normal appearing appendix during laparoscopy when no other intra-abdominal pathology is found. The aim of this study was to examine the rate of appendicitis, along with readmission and reoperation rates following diagnostic laparoscopy of clinically suspected appendicitis in patients where the appendix was not removed.
This monocentric study aimed to explore whether key non-technical attributes can be reliably measured in a mixed population of candidates applying for surgical training, surgical trainees and staff and to identify any differences between these groups.
