Endo-laparoscopic reconstruction of the abdominal wall midline with linear stapler, the THT technique. Early results of the first case series.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2019 Feb 12;38:1-7. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

General Surgery Division, Cavalese Hospital, Cavalese, Italy.

Diagnostic laparoscopy to investigate unexplained lactic acidosis in critically ill patients - A descriptive single centre cohort study.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Dec 13;36:231-234. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Surgery, University Hospital Hairmyres, NHS Lanarkshire, East Kilbride, G75 8RG, Scotland, UK.

Introduction: Unexplained lactic acidosis (LA) in a critically ill patient often prompts investigations to rule out any reversible intra-abdominal cause. Equivocal results can lead to an emergency laparotomy (EL) with subsequent high morbidity and mortality rates. Our objective was to determine the clinical impact of urgent diagnostic laparoscopy (UDL) in such patients. Read More

Autologous fat grafting: Harvesting techniques.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Dec 13;36:212-218. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Departamento de Biomedicina - Unidade de Bioquímica, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade do Porto, Porto, Portugal.

Autologous fat grafting is widely used for soft-tissue augmentation and replacement in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery providing a biocompatible, natural and inexpensive method. Multiple approaches have been developed in the past years, varying in the location of adipose tissue donor-sites, use of wetting solutions, harvesting, processing and placing techniques. Despite many advances in this subject, the lack of standardization in the protocols and the unpredictability of the resorption of the grafted tissue pose a significant limitation for graft retention and subsequent filling.

Success of intraoperative imaging and management of suspected choledocholithiasis without pre-operative bile duct imaging - A case series.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Dec 5;36:173-177. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Consultant Upper GI Surgeon, South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, United Kingdom.

Background: Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) is gaining popularity over endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for the management of common bile duct stones. However, its application has been almost exclusively following preoperative stone confirmation via magnetic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) or ERCP. We present our series of LCBDE following detection of common bile duct stones with intraoperative imaging (IOI) alone, in consecutive elective and emergency patients with suspected choledocholithiasis.

Is abdominal drainage after open emergency appendectomy for complicated appendicitis beneficial or waste of money? A single centre retrospective cohort study.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Dec 9;36:168-172. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

UCL Medical School, UCL, Research Department of Medical Education, Room GF/664, Royal Free Campus, Hampstead, London, NW3 2PR, UK.

Background: Appendicitis is a medical condition that causes painful inflammation of the appendix. For acute appendicitis, appendectomy is immediately required as any delay may lead to serious complications such as gangrenous or perforated appendicitis with or without localized abscess formation. Patients who had appendectomy for complicated appendicitis are more prone to develop post-operative complications such as peritoneal abscess or wound infection. Read More
