Does site of specimen extraction affect incisional hernia rate after robot assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy?

Robot assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) spread in the last decade as a minimally invasive alternative to open radical prostatectomy for men with localized prostate cancer. It is associated with excellent surgical, functional and oncological results with less postoperative pain and shorter convalescence. Anyway, the development of an incisional hernia (IH), may negate known benefits as it can lead not only to bothersome symptoms but also to severe complications, such as bowel obstruction, st...

Predictors of female genital organ involvement in radical cystectomy for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder: A single-center retrospective analysis of 112 female patients.

To evaluate predictors of organ involvement and oncological outcomes after radical cystectomy with anterior exenteration in female patients.

Endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy in children: Our experience.

Epiphora affects approximately 20% neonates, but most resolve spontaneously. Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is indicated only when conservative management fails.

A nomogram predicting the need for abdominal and pelvic computed tomography in blunt trauma patients: A retrospective cohort study.

Abdominal and pelvic computed tomography (APCT) has become the preferred means for the initial evaluation of blunt trauma patients. However, computed tomography examination has some disadvantages, such as radiation exposure, the requirement for intravenous iodinated contrast medium, high cost, and time. We aimed to develop a nomogram to predict the need for APCT scanning after the primary survey of blunt trauma patients.

The value of laparoscopy in the management of chronic groin pain.

Chronic groin pain problem represents a diagnostic and management challenge. This study is reporting all patients who underwent laparoscopic exploration of the groin and pelvis for undiagnosed chronic groin pain.

Ureteric-urethral engraftment as a new surgical technique for management of incontinence in bladder exstrophy complex: A retrospective cohort.

To report the results of a novel surgical technique for achieving urinary continence in patients with bladder exstrophy complex (BEC) by ureteric-urethral engraftment (UUE) technique.

Liposomal bupivacaine versus interscalene nerve block for pain control after total shoulder arthroplasty: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

To illustrate the efficacy liposomal bupivacaine versus interscalene nerve block for pain management after total shoulder arthroplasty.

Laparoscopic redo anti-reflux surgery: Case-series of different presentations, varied management and their outcomes.

A minority of patients undergoing surgery for refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) will require revision antireflux surgery ("redo-ARS") for persistent symptoms or complications. Although a repeat minimally invasive procedure for revision may be technically challenging due to post-operative changes, studies are beginning to show favourable data for the laparoscopic approach.

Variability in elective day-surgery rates between Belgian hospitals - Analyses of administrative data explained by surgical experts.

In the last decades, day surgery has steadily and significantly grown in many countries, yet the increase has been uneven. There are large variations in day-surgery activity between countries, but also within countries between hospitals and surgeons. This paper explores the variability in day-care activity for elective surgical procedures between Belgian hospitals.

Prioritized cervical or lumbar surgery for coexisting cervical and lumbar stenosis: Prognostic analysis of 222 case.

Single-stage surgery is usually applied to improving the symptoms of coexisting cervical and lumbar stenosis. In most cases, patients' willingness, surgery affordability, surgical trauma, surgical complications and patients' tolerance to surgery all limit the application of single-stage surgery. For patients who cannot receive single-stage surgery, we hope that we can find out by weighing up merits and flaws of the two surgical sites in order to make decision of prioritize one of the two surgery, so as to b...

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.
