A phase II study of intraoperative radiotherapy using a low-energy x-ray source for resectable pancreatic cancer: a study protocol.

BMC Surg 2019 Mar 7;19(1):31. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Gangnam Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 211 Eonju-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06273, Republic of Korea.

Background: The current standard treatment for resectable pancreatic cancer is surgical resection followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. Local recurrence rates are high even after curative resection; thus, the long-term outcome of locally advanced pancreatic cancer remains poor. Intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) uses a low-energy x-ray source to deliver a single fraction of high-dose radiation to the tumor bed during a surgical procedure, while effectively sparing the surrounding normal tissues.

A three-dimensional printed porous implant combined with bone grafting following curettage of a subchondral giant cell tumour of the proximal tibia: a case report.

BMC Surg 2019 Feb 28;19(1):29. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Orthopedics, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, No. 37 Guoxue Street, Chengdu, 610041, People's Republic of China.

Background: Subchondral bone is commonly affected in cases of giant cell tumour (GCT) of the proximal tibia. Numerous studies have stated that retaining a sufficient subchondral bone layer could decrease the possibilities of postoperative degenerative changes and mechanical failure of the knee joint. However, the most commonly used methods of cement packing only or cement packing combined bone grafting have some limitations regarding the protection of subchondral bone after surgery. Read More

Therapeutic effect of a temporary transpyloric stent in refractory post-surgical gastroparesis: a case report.

BMC Surg 2019 Feb 27;19(1):27. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Department of General Surgery, the First Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University, Dalian, 116011, Liaoning Province, China.

Background: Gastroparesis is a syndrome characterized by delayed gastric emptying with associated symptoms. It was reported that the symptoms of diabetic gastroparesis had been greatly improved by transpyloric stent placement. However, the use of stents in benign conditions is considered to be contraindicated because of the increasing risk of complications, such as stent migration, reflux, perforation, bleeding, and, most importantly, new strictures caused by stent-induced tissue hyperplasia.

BMC Surg 2019 Feb 4;19(1):18. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

1st Department of Surgery, Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Laikon General Hospital, Agiou Thoma 17str, 115-27, Athens, GR, Greece.

Background: Although the effect of the recent Greek economic crisis and austerity on the population's health and the health system effectiveness have been discussed a lot recently, data on common surgical conditions affecting large part of the population are missing.

Department of Neurosurgery, Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, Changhua Christian Hospital, 135 Nanhsiao Street, Changhua, 500, Taiwan, Republic of China.

Background: Spinal arachnoid cysts are rare and have varied clinical manifestations depending on the affected spinal region and nerve roots. A complete cyst excision with fistula closure is the first choice of treatment. However, it might be difficult to localize the specific position of the fistula because previous images have no enhancements or the fistula is too tiny to be detected. Read More

Cervical spine alignment following surgery for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS): a pre-to-post analysis of 81 patients.

BMC Surg 2019 Jan 15;19(1). Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Clinic for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, Center for Orthopaedics, Trauma Surgery and Spinal Cord Injury, Heidelberg University Hospital, Schlierbacher Landstr.200a, 69118, Heidelberg, Germany.

Background: Several studies have emphasized the importance of restoring thoracic kyphosis (TK) in the setting of AIS, but very few have discussed changes in cervical spine alignment following surgery. Aim of this study was to evaluate reciprocal cervical alignment change after modification of global and regional thoracolumbar alignment with surgery in the setting of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).

Methods: Baseline and 2-yrs follow-up radiographs of AIS patients (n = 81) were analysed measuring cervical parameters (upper cervical: C2-C0, McGregor Slope; lower cervical: C2-C7, C2-C7 sagittal vertical axis (SVA), C2-T3, C2-T3SVA, C2-T1Harrison (C2-T1Ha), T1 Slope (T1S)), thoracic, lumbar, pelvic and global alignment parameters.

BMC Surg 2019 Jan 14;19(1). Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Seirei Hamamatsu General Hospital, Shizuoka, Japan.

Background: Laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure (LPEC) has become a common procedure for repairing inguinal hernia. As a laparoscopic approach, pediatric surgical trainees require more training to learn LPEC than a traditional open approach.

Optimising the antibiotic treatment of uncomplicated acute appendicitis: a protocol for a multicentre randomised clinical trial (APPAC II trial).

BMC Surg 2018 Dec 17;18(1):117. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Division of Digestive Surgery and Urology, Turku University Hospital, Kiinanmyllynkatu 4-8, 20520, Turku, Finland.

Background: Based on epidemiological and clinical data acute appendicitis can present either as uncomplicated (70-80%) or complicated (20-30%) disease. Recent studies have shown that antibiotic therapy is both safe and cost-effective for a CT-scan confirmed uncomplicated acute appendicitis. However, based on the study protocols to ensure patient safety, these randomised studies used mainly broad-spectrum intravenous antibiotics requiring additional hospital resources and prolonged hospital stay.

Synovial cysts of the hip joint: a single-center experience.

BMC Surg 2018 Dec 5;18(1):113. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Peking Union Medical College and Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China.

Background: Synovial cyst of the hip joint is a rare clinical condition in need of evidence-based guidelines for its diagnosis and management. Normally, synovial cyst of the hip joint requires no treatment, but when it intrudes into surrounding structures, various clinical symptoms appear. Because of its rarity, a symptomatic synovial cyst is often confounded with a tumor as a space-occupying lesion or with other diseases, depending on its various clinical presentations. Read More

Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, No.1 Youyi Road, Chongqing, 400016, China.

Background: Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) is regarded as a second-line treatment for medically refractory idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), but the predictive factors for the long-term postoperative responses to ITP are still a matter of debate. We aimed to investigate the factors that can predict the long-term response after LS for Chinese patients with medically refractory ITP.

Methods: From January 2011 to September 2016, 78 Chinese patients with ITP who underwent LS were retrospectively analyzed. Read More
