Influence of screw to joint distance on articular subsidence in tibial-plateau fractures.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Medical School, Australian National University, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia.

Background: Tibial-plateau fractures with depressed osteochondral fragments have a high incidence of articular subsidence post reduction. Locking plates aim to prevent this via 'raft' screws below the subchondral bone. However, differences in plate design and patient anatomy result in variability of screw position in relation to the fragments they are designed to support. Read More

Significance of drain fluid amylase check on day 3 after pancreatectomy.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Surgery, Kangbuk Samsung Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: The occurrence of pancreatic fistulae (PF) after pancreatectomy is the main cause of prolonged hospital stay, delayed chemotherapy, poor quality of life and post-operative death. The surgical drainage after pancreatectomy can induce ascending infection, early removal is recommended if the possibility of PF is low. The present study analysed the risk factors and predictors of PF, and confirmed the significance of drain fluid amylase concentration (DFA, U/L) among various factors identified. Read More

Changes in body weight, skeletal muscle and adipose tissue after gastrectomy: a comparison between proximal gastrectomy and total gastrectomy.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Jan 31;89(1-2):79-83. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Division of Gastric Surgery, Shizuoka Cancer Center, Shizuoka, Japan.

Background: Proximal gastrectomy (PG) offers a well-preserved digestive function after surgery, which may result in a better nutritional outcome in comparison to total gastrectomy (TG). The aim of this study was to clarify the advantage of PG over TG by evaluating the longitudinal changes in body weight (BW) and body composition after surgery.

Methods: A total of 112 patients undergoing PG with a reconstruction preserving food passage through the duodenum (n = 39) or TG with a reconstruction bypassing the duodenum (n = 73) for clinical stage IA gastric cancer were included. Read More
