ANZ J Surg 2020 Jun 28. Epub 2020 Jun 28.

Colorectal Unit, Department of General Surgery, St John of God Subiaco Hospital, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Background: Recent evidence supports the safety of early reversal of a temporary stoma, within 14 days of construction. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the post-operative morbidity and overall feasibility of early stoma reversal.

Methods: Medline and Cochrane databases were searched for studies up to June 2019 that investigated the outcomes of early stoma reversal (EC, defined as closure ≤14 days from the index operation) versus late stoma reversal (LC, ≥8 weeks from the index operation). Read More

Strategies for 'bloodless' surgery: the experience of cytoreductive surgery for peritoneal carcinomatosis in Jehovah's Witnesses.

ANZ J Surg 2020 Jun 28. Epub 2020 Jun 28.

St George Clinical School, The University of New South Wales, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) for the management of peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) can involve significant blood loss which necessitates the transfusion of blood products. This poses a particular challenge in the Jehovah's Witnesses population whose beliefs do not permit the transfusion of blood products or blood-related derivatives. This report describes the experience of one institution performing CRS with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) for PC in Jehovah's Witnesses and perioperative management strategies employed to avoid blood transfusion.

Department of Pancreatic Surgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Background: Owing to the limited prevalence and heterogeneity, it is difficult to predict long-term survival of non-functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NF-PNETs).This study aimed to evaluate the factors predicting disease-specific survival (DSS) for well-differentiated NF-PNETs.

Methods: Data were collected retrospectively from 256 patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours who underwent surgical resection between January 2009 and December at our institution. Read More

Scoping review of head and neck neoplasms presenting with obstructive sleep apnoea: the importance of flexible nasendoscopy.

ANZ J Surg 2020 Jun 24. Epub 2020 Jun 24.

Division of Cancer Surgery, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Background: Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) can be caused by neoplasms involving the upper aerodigestive tract. Currently, many of these patients have this diagnosis missed, as most adults diagnosed with OSA do not undergo adequate head and neck examination including flexible nasendoscopy. We performed a review of the literature to shed light on this phenomenon and outline the pathologies and issues surrounding this sub-population of patients diagnosed with OSA. Read More

ANZ J Surg 2020 Jun 24. Epub 2020 Jun 24.

Department of Surgery, South Auckland Clinical School, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, The University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.

Background: Emergency laparotomy (EL) is a common procedure with high mortality leading to several efforts to record and reduce mortality. Risk scores currently used by quality improvement programmes either require intraoperative data or are not specific to EL. To be of utility to clinicians/patients, estimation of preoperative risk of mortality is important. Read More

Prospective evaluation of the impact of human papilloma virus status and small node size on the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography for primary head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

ANZ J Surg 2020 Jun 21. Epub 2020 Jun 21.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) is well validated in the staging of pre-treatment head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), although the impact of human papilloma virus (HPV) status and node size on accuracy remains unclear. The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of PET/CT based on HPV status and node size and determine the effects of maximum standardized uptake value thresholds on sensitivity, specificity and positive predictive value.

Methods: A total of 38 patients with primary HNSCC were recruited. Read More

Background: Potential live renal donors undergo both renal computed tomography angiogram (CTA) and nuclear imaging dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scans. Each kidney's renal function and vascular anatomy influences the choice of donor side. Although DMSA measures differential blood flow, it is a surrogate for renal function and nephron mass.
