Faced to an undetermined ovarian mass on ultrasound, an MRI is recommended and the ROMA score (combining CA125 and HE4) can be proposed (grade A). In case of suspected early stage ovarian or fallopian tube cancer, omentectomy (at least infracolonic), appendectomy, multiple peritoneal biopsies, peritoneal cytology (grade C) and pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy are recommended (grade B) for all histological types, except for the expansive mucinous subtype where lymphadenectomy may be omitted (grade C). Minimally invasive surgery is recommended for early stage ovarian cancer, if there is no risk of tumor rupture (grade B). Read More

Opioid Prescribing Habits of General Versus Pediatric Surgeons After Uncomplicated Laparoscopic Appendectomy.

J Surg Res 2019 Mar 16;235:404-409. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Surgery, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Background: Adolescents who use prescription opioids have an increased risk for future drug abuse and overdose, making them a high-risk population. Appendectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures in this age group, often requires opioid analgesia, and is performed by both pediatric and general surgeons. Prescription patterns comparing these two provider groups have not yet been evaluated; we hypothesize that general surgery providers prescribe more opioids for adolescent and young adult patients than do pediatric surgery providers.

Pitfalls of Diagnosing Left Lower Quadrant Pain Causes: Making the Uncommon Common Again.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Jan 19;20:78-82. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Department of Surgery, Beirut General Hospital, Beirut, Lebanon.

BACKGROUND Left-sided acute appendicitis, although well described in the literature, is still an easily missed diagnosis. Midgut malrotation and situs inversus are 2 known leading conditions that contribute to misdiagnosis of appendicitis. CASE REPORT Here is the case of a 27-year-old male without any previous medical history, who presented with left lower quadrant tenderness and was misdiagnosed with gastroenteritis as an outpatient and sent home; the patient presented the next day to the emergency department where he was found to have acute appendicitis with situs inversus.

Post-appendectomy pelvic abscess with extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producing : A case report and review of literature.

World J Clin Cases 2018 Dec;6(16):1175-1181

Department of Surgery, St George Public Hospital, Kogarah NSW 2217, Australia.

Background: Appendicitis, the inflammation of the appendix, is the most common abdominal surgical emergency requiring expedient surgical intervention. Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) are bacterial enzymes that catalyse the degradation of the beta-lactam ring of penicillins and cephalosporins (but without carbapenemase activity), leading to resistance of these bacteria to beta-lactam antibiotics. Recent increases in incidence of ESBL-producing bacteria have caused alarm worldwide. Read More

Quantitative Evaluations of the Effects of Noise on Mental Workloads Based on Pupil Dilation during Laparoscopic Surgery.

Am Surg 2018 Dec;84(12):1951-1956

Noise can exert undeniable pressure on human minds, especially during tasks that require high precision and attention, such as those performed during surgery. To investigate whether auditory stimuli increases mental loads during laparoscopic surgery, we examined the effects of operating room (OR) noises and music by measuring mean changes in pupil sizes and subjectively assessing performances during surgery. We recruited 24 subjects with varying laparoscopic surgery experience levels to perform complete appendectomy using a laparoscopic simulator. Read More

Does retrieval bag use during laparoscopic appendectomy reduce postoperative infection?

Surgery 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA; Center for Surgery and Public Health, Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. Electronic address:

Background: Appendectomy is the most commonly performed emergency operation in the United States, with approximately 370,000 patients undergoing the procedure every year. Although laparoscopic appendectomy is associated with decreased complications when compared with open appendectomy, the risk for infectious complications, including surgical site infection, intra-abdominal abscess, and sepsis, remains a significant source of postoperative morbidity and health care cost. The goal of this study is to determine whether the appendix retrieval technique during laparoscopic appendectomy affects risk of infectious complications. Read More
