Sugammadex is changing the paradigm in neuromuscular blockade in patients with myotonic dystrophy.

J Perioper Pract 2019 Mar 19:1750458919838412. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Centro Hospitalar de Setúbal, Setúbal, Portugal.

Myotonic dystrophy type 1 is a rare neuromuscular disease that represents a challenge to anaesthetic management. Most of the literature does not recommend the usage of neuromuscular blocking agents, if general anaesthesia is needed in these patients. Depolarising neuromuscular blocking agents like suxamethonium are contraindicated, and there might be an increased sensitivity to non-depolarising agents like rocuronium with greater risk of postoperative residual neuromuscular blockade and consequent respiratory failure.

Clinical and Survival Outcomes Using Percutaneous Cholecystostomy Tube Alone or Subsequent Interval Cholecystectomy to Treat Acute Cholecystitis.

J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Department of General Surgery, St. Vincent's University Hospital, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Background: Percutaneous cholecystostomy (PCT) is a safe method of gallbladder drainage in the setting of severe or complicated acute cholecystitis (AC), particularly in patients who are high-risk surgical candidates. Small case series suggest that PCT aids resolution of acute cholecystitis in up to 90% of patients. However, reluctance is observed in utilising PCT more frequently, due to concerns that we are committing comorbid patients to an interval surgical procedure for which they may not be suitable.

Iatrogenic bile duct injury: impact and management challenges.

Clin Exp Gastroenterol 2019 6;12:121-128. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Department of Medical, Surgical Sciences and Advanced Technologies "G.F. Ingrassia", University of Catania, Catania, Italy,

Iatrogenic bile duct injuries (BDIs) after laparoscopic cholecystectomy, being one of the most common performed surgical procedures, remain a substantial problem in gastrointestinal surgery with a significant impact on patient's quality of life. The primary aim of this review was to discuss the classification of BDIs, the proposed methods to prevent biliary lesions, the associated risk factors, and the management challenges depending on the timing of recognition of the injury, its extension, the patient's clinical condition, and the availability of experienced hepatobiliary surgeons. Early recognition of BDI is of paramount importance and limiting the diagnosis delay is crucial for an optimal postoperative outcome. Read More

World J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Feb;11(2):62-84

Transplant and HPB Surgery, the Iowa Clinic-Iowa Methodist Hospital, Des Moines, IA 50309, United States.

The incidence of biliary injury after laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has shown a declining trend though it may still be twice that as with open cholecystectomy. Major biliary or vasculobiliary injury is associated with significant morbidity. As prevention is the best strategy, the concept of a culture of safe cholecystectomy has been recently introduced to educate surgeons and apprise them of basic tenets of safe performance of LC.

Laparoscopic Repair of Small Ventral Hernias Using the "Ventralex™ Hernia Patch".

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2019 Jan-Feb;114(1):95-102

Laparoscopy of abdominal wall defects becomes more and more actual, considering the well-known advantages of minimally invasive surgery, and the reduced incidence of post-operative ventral infections and recurrence rates compared to the the open repair with or without mesh. We hereby present the technique of the laparoscopic repair of small ventral hernias (defect 2 centimetres), using the Ventralex mesh, which is bi-faceted, polypropylene and PTFE, circular preformed, it has 8 centimeters in diameter, fixated with 4 transparietal sutures. The mesh is created for open surgery but it is placed in the intraperitoneal cavity. Read More

Open conversion for laparoscopically difficult cholecystectomy is still a valid solution with unsolved aspects.

World J Emerg Surg 2019 18;14. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

1Department of Surgical Sciences and Advanced Technologies "GF Ingrassia", Cannizzaro Hospital, University of Catania, Via Messina, 829, 95126 Catania, Italy.

The difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy remains a surgical challenge for surgeons who must decide between laparoscopic continuation and open conversion. The balance between the lack of open surgery training of young surgeons and the risk of maintaining the laparoscopic approach in difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy is still an unresolved problem. Furthermore, the time that must be spent in an attempt to complete laparoscopic surgery before conversion is still controversial. Read More

Cholecystectomy for Biliary Hyperkinesia.

Am Surg 2019 Feb;85(2):219-222

Patients with classic biliary colic symptoms and documented gallbladder ejection fractions on the higher end of the spectrum on hepatobiliary iminoacetic acid scans with cholecystokinin stimulation are presently understudied and the benefits of cholecystectomy are unclear. To determine whether patients with biliary-type pain and biliary hyperkinesia (defined as a gallbladder ejection fractions of 80% or greater) benefit from laparoscopic cholecystectomy, a retrospective chart review encompassing five community hospitals was performed. Patients 16 years and older with diagnosed biliary hyperkinesia who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy between January 1, 2010 and May 31, 2015 were included. Read More
