Abdominal wall transplantation in organ transplantation: Our experience.

Cir Esp 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Abdominal wall transplantation has been consolidated as an alternative to primary abdominal wall closure in intestinal and multiple organ transplant recipients. Given that it is feasible to obtain the visceral graft and the abdominal wall graft from the same donor, abdominal wall transplantation could offer satisfactory outcomes and be easily coordinated. Non-vascularized fascia is one of the alternatives for abdominal wall closure in transplantation. Read More

Pelvic fractures with associated retroperitoneal hematoma: time until angioembolization and results.

Cir Esp 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Cirugía General y del Aparato Digestivo, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Madrid, España.

Introduction: Two areas of controversy in the management of bleeding pelvic fractures are the need to perform angioembolization (AE) in patients with a retroperitoneal hematoma (RPH) but no contrast extravasation (CE) on Computerized Tomography (CT) and/or angiography, and the delay to AE. Our main objective was to assess whether there had been differences in the percentage and delay to AE between patients admitted on weekdays versus off-hours (weekends and admission after 3pm) at our hospital. Our hypothesis was that angiography and AE would be more frequent on weekdays, and the time delay would be longer during off-hours, with a higher mortality in this latter group for a similar overall severity.

Introduction: There is no standard procedure for the detection of the sentinel node (SN) in thyroid disease. However, the recent detection of the SN using a paramagnetic tracer is proving to be useful in breast cancer and melanoma. The objective was to assess the utility of super paramagnetic iron oxide tracer for the intraoperative detection of the SN in patients with papillary thyroid cancer without nodal involvement in the preoperative study.

Quality control techniques in surgery: Application of cumulative sum (CUSUM) charts.

Cir Esp 2019 Feb 24;97(2):65-70. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Servicio de Cirugía General y Digestiva, Hospital General de Castellón, Castellón, España.

Cumulative sum graphs are quality control charts that are possibly the most frequently used for monitoring clinical-care processes. One of their main advantages is the use in rare cases and in events with low incidence, where it would be necessary to obtain a large sample and a long follow-up time with conventional statistical methods, which is impossible in certain cases. This is also why they are useful for studying learning curves, the introduction of new technologies and, in general, for assessing the quality of care outcomes themselves, because their profile is sensitive to very subtle changes in trends (positive or negative), which would not be observed with other methods.
