Asian J Surg 2019 Apr 13. Epub 2019 Apr 13.

Department of Pathology, The Affiliated People's Hospital of Inner Mongolia Medical University, Huhhot, 010010, PR China. Electronic address:

In our clinical work, we found that there is a certain angle in the extrahepatic biliary system, that is to say, there is an angle between the extension line of the lower common bile duct and the upper duodenal segment of bile duct system In Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), the angle of a patient with bile duct injury(BDI) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) was measured and compared with that of a patient without BDI during LC We suspect that the bigger angle may be related to the occurrence of BDI in LC We named the angle in the coronal and sagittal positions as "proximity angle" and "exposure angle" respectively. Our experience is that preoperative assessment of relevant angles may be helpful to avoid the occurrence of BDI. Read More

Mechanical effect of different implant CCD angles on the fracture surface after fixation of an unstable intertrochanteric fracture: A finite element analysis.

Asian J Surg 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Ajou University School of Medicine, Ajou Medical Center, Suwon, South Korea. Electronic address:

Background/objective: The choice of implant is one of the most easily controllable factors affecting the outcome of intertrochanteric fractures. While most of the caput-collum-diaphysis (CCD) angles of the femur are within the range of 125° and 130°, there is a shortage of data on whether 125° or 130° implants are preferable. Thus, the present finite element analysis (FEA) aimed to compare the biomechanical effects on the fracture surface when using implants with different CCD angles where the anatomical CCD angle of the femur was between 125° and 130°.

Histologic severity of liver cirrhosis: A key factor affecting surgical outcomes of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with portal hypertension.

Asian J Surg 2019 Feb 16. Epub 2019 Feb 16.

Hepatic Surgery Center, Tongji Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China. Electronic address:

Background: Portal hypertension (PH), which is closely associated with the severity of liver cirrhosis, has been suggested as a contraindication of liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We aimed to explore the role of a potential player, histologic severity of liver cirrhosis, in affecting surgical outcomes of the patients with both HCC and PH.

Methods: A total of 374 HCC patients with PH underwent resection for HCC were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

The efficacy of absorbable versus non-absorbable fixation in laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (tep) repair of large inguinal hernias.

Asian J Surg 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Centre, University Surgical Cluster, National University Hospital, Singapore.

Background/objective: Our study aims to compare clinical outcomes of laparoscopic Totally Extra-peritoneal (TEP) repair with mesh fixation in large inguinal hernias using titanium versus absorbable tacks.

Methods: This is a case control study of patients who underwent laparoscopic TEP repair with mesh fixation of large inguinal hernias in our institution from 2010 to 2015. In all patients a standard 10 × 15 cm large-pore polypropylene mesh was used and a standardized fixation technique was followed. Read More

One stage fistulectomy for high anal fistula with reconstruction of anal sphincter without fecal diversion.

Asian J Surg 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

General surgery department, Cairo University, Egypt.

Perianal sepsis and fistula is a troublesome disease in the field of colorectal surgery in term of recurrence and fecal incontinence. The aim of our study is to evaluate the role of 'one stage complex anal fistula excision with reconstruction of anal sphincter without stool diversion' regarding fecal incontinence and recurrence. This was prospective cohort study on 175 patients of complex high peri-anal fistulae, the patients were subjected to fistulectomy and reconstruction (primary suture repair) of anal sphincter without stool diversion, the patients were followed up 1 year postoperatively after complete healing of the wound regarding their continence to stool and gases using Wexner score and recurrence of the fistula which is examined clinically and radio-logically using MRI.

Asian J Surg 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, National Taiwan University Hospital, College of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Background: Atypical lipomatous tumor (ALT) is a low-grade malignancy that frequently occurs at a subfascial anatomical location. While marginal excision is adequate for lipomas, excision with a surgical margin is suggested for ALTs. However, ALTs and lipomas are difficult to differentiate preoperatively, even with the help of imaging studies. Read More
