Oncoplastic breast surgery versus conventional breast-conserving surgery: a comparative retrospective study.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Gynaecology and Gynaecological Oncology, Charité University Medicine Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Background: In addition to conventional breast-conserving surgery (BCS), oncoplastic breast surgery (OBS) is an operation technique that strives simultaneously to increase oncological safety and patient's satisfaction. It is the combination of the best-proven techniques in plastic surgery with surgery for breast cancer. In a growing number of indications, OBS overcomes the limit of conventional BCS by allowing larger resection volumes while avoiding deformities. Read More

Neck lump clinic: a new initiative at North Shore Hospital.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Otorhinolaryngology, Waitemata District Health Board, Auckland, New Zealand.

Background: Neck lumps can cause significant patient anxiety and benefit from a multidisciplinary diagnostic approach, with an ultrasound scan and fine needle aspirate. Internationally, 'one-stop' clinics are used for the evaluation of neck lumps, to date no such clinic has been established in the New Zealand public hospital system. The objective of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of a one-stop diagnostic neck lump clinic (NLC), aiming for improved patient experience and efficiency. Read More

Fast-track surgery for acute appendicitis in children: a systematic review of protocol-based care.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Women's and Children's Hospital, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Background: 'Fast-track' surgery protocols aim to standardize and rationalize post-operative care, with evidence of safety and efficacy in both uncomplicated and complicated childhood appendicitis. Generalization for broader adoption has been limited by variation in protocol design, including specific antibiotic choice, discharge criteria, post-operative monitoring and patient selection.

Methods: A systematic review of the literature was performed to evaluate the current evidence underpinning fast-track protocols for childhood appendicitis and identify areas of consensus and controversy. Read More

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

School of Health and Related Research, The University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK.

Background: Oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery (OBCS) has gained increasing attention as a treatment option for early breast cancer patients, aiming to achieve the best possible breast symmetry with concomitant oncological safety. This paper aims to systematically review the current literature on patient quality of life (QoL) after OBCS compared with QoL after breast-conserving surgery (BCS) alone.

Addressing the ethical grey zone in surgery: a framework for identification and safe introduction of novel surgical techniques and procedures.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Institute of Academic Surgery, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

While the introduction of new surgical techniques can radically improve patient care, they may equally expose patients to unforeseen harms associated with untested procedures. The enthusiastic uptake of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the early 1990s saw a dramatic increase in the rate of common bile duct injuries, and was described by Alfred Cuschieri as 'the biggest unaudited free-for-all in the history of surgery' due to 'a lack of effective centralised control'. Whether a new surgical intervention is considered an acceptable 'minor' variation of an established procedure, or is sufficiently 'novel' to constitute experimentation on human subjects is often unclear.

Impact of body mass index on utilization of selected hospital resources for four common surgical procedures.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Centre for Health Research Illawarra Shoalhaven Population, Australian Health Services Research Institute, University of Wollongong, Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Evidence about the impact of obesity on surgical resource consumption in the Australian setting is equivocal. Our objectives were to quantify the prevalence of obesity in four frequently performed surgical procedures and explore the association between body mass index (BMI) and hospital resource utilization including procedural duration, length of stay (LOS) and costs.

Methods: A retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing four surgical procedures at a tertiary referral centre in New South Wales, between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2016, was conducted. Read More

Number of nodal metastases and prognosis in metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Liverpool Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Existing prognostic systems for metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (cSCCHN) do not discriminate between the number of involved nodes beyond single versus multiple. This study aimed to determine if the number of metastatic lymph nodes is an independent prognostic factor in metastatic cSCCHN and whether it provides additional prognostic information to the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging.

Methods: We retrospectively analysed 101 patients undergoing curative intent treatment for metastatic cSCCHN to parotid and/or neck nodes by surgery +/- radiotherapy at Liverpool Hospital, Sydney, Australia. Read More

Are breast conservation treatment rates optimized for Asian women with symptomatic malignancies?

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Clinical Medicine, Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, Singapore.

Background: Published data indicate that 20-40% of patients undergo breast conservation treatment (BCT) in Asia, which is below an indicative benchmark of 50%. With an increasing body of evidence suggesting that BCT might be associated with improved survival outcomes, it is exigent to increase BCT utilization. This study was therefore undertaken to evaluate BCT rates for women presenting with symptomatic breast cancer and potential for de-escalation of surgical treatment. Read More

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Musculoskeletal Medicine, Christchurch Public Hospital, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Background: Surgical management options for bilateral knee osteoarthritis comprise staged or single-anaesthetic bilateral total knee replacements (SABTKRs). We examined the New Zealand Joint Registry hypothesizing there would be no difference between these practices compared to unilateral total knee replacement (TKR) examining 30-day mortality, all-cause revision rate and function.

Methods: For this study, 84 946 primary TKRs were identified. Read More

Epithelial tissue cut-out following needle insertion into a joint: a potential complication during arthroscopy.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Bendigo Health, Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.

Background: Knee arthroscopy is a common orthopaedic procedure and often involves insertion of a needle through skin into a joint. This needle insertion can create epithelial tissue cut-outs possibly containing commensal bacteria that can be flushed into the joint, and potentially lead to post-arthroscopy septic arthritis. This study aims to assess the frequency of epithelial tissue cut-out creation on insertion of different needle sizes at different angles to the skin. Read More

Adverse impact of malnutrition markers on major abdominopelvic cancer surgery.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Department of Urology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Background: Malnutrition has been associated with adverse postoperative outcomes in a range of procedures but none have evaluated the interaction between clinical indicators of malnutrition. We aimed to comparatively evaluate how combinations of nutritional parameters impact postoperative outcomes amongst patients undergoing major cancer operations.

Methods: Major abdominopelvic cancer surgery cases (colectomy, cystectomy, esophagectomy, gastrectomy, hysterectomy, nephrectomy, pancreatectomy, pneumonectomy and prostatectomy) were identified in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2007-2016.
