Laparoscopic versus open appendectomy for complicated appendicitis.

Medwave 2018 Dec 11;18(8):e7370. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Proyecto Epistemonikos, Santiago, Chile; Centro Evidencia UC, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Santiago, Chile; Departamento de Medicina Interna, Facultad de Medicina, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Santiago, Chile. Email: Address: Centro Evidencia UC, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Diagonal Paraguay 476, Santiago, Chile.

Introduction: The treatment of acute appendicitis using laparoscopy reduces the risk of wound infection, hospitalization time and return to normal activity. However, it increases the risk of intra-abdominal abscess, which is one the main complications of complicated appendicitis.

Methods: We searched in Epistemonikos, the largest database of systematic reviews in health, which is maintained by screening multiple information sources, including MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane, among others. Read More

Prospective, randomized comparative study of ultrasound-guided blocking of the lateral cutaneous branches of the intercostal nerves versus conventional analgesia in non-reconstructive breast surgery.

Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Servicio de Anestesia y Reanimación, Hospital Universitario Basurto, Bilbao, Vizcaya, España.

Objective: The objective of this study is to determine whether the accomplishment of an interfascial blockade, the blocking of the cutaneous branches of the intercostal nerves in the axillary line (BRILMA) associated with a multimodal analgesic regimen improves post-operative analgesia and allows saving opioids after non-reconstructive surgery of breast.

Material And Methods: A prospective, randomised and simple blind study was conducted on patients that underwent non-reconstructive breast surgery. The patients were randomly assigned to the blocking group, or to the standard post-operative analgesia group (paracetamol and dexketoprofen). Read More

Rationale and design of the PHYSICALFAV trial: a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effect of preoperative isometric exercise on vascular calibre and maturation of autologous arteriovenous fistulas.

Clin Kidney J 2018 Dec 22;11(6):841-845. Epub 2018 Jun 22.

Servicio de Nefrología, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Madrid, Spain.

Background: A good vascular access (VA) is vital for haemodialysis (HD) patients. HD with an autologous arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is associated with higher survival, lower health care costs and fewer complications. Although a distal forearm AVF is the best option, not all patients are good candidates for this approach and the primary failure rate ranges from 20% to 50%. Read More

Lumbar erector spinae plane block: Successful control of acute pain after lumbar spine surgery - A clinical report.

Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Departamento de Anestesiología y Terapia del Dolor, Centro Hospitalar de Trás-Os-Montes e Alto Douro, EPE, Vila Real, Portugal.

We report the successful clinical case of a patient scheduled for lumbar spine surgery in which we performed a bilateral single-shot erector spinae plane block as part of a multimodal analgesic strategy for pain control. Performing the block preoperatively dismissed the need for extra intraoperative opioids other than those for intubation, and enabled the use of paracetamol for analgesia only. Further, there was no need for hypotensive techniques, as the block provided satisfactory sympathetic blockade and regional vasodilation with a clear surgical field. Read More

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFDL) includes fatty liver or simple steatosis, characterized by lipid deposits in hepatocytes and more advanced stages such as steatohepatitis (NASH) and non-alcoholic cirrhosis. Physical inactivity, hypercaloric and unbalanced diet together with aging play a key role in the pathogenesis of NAFLD and are strongly associated with metabolic and physical activity continue to be major components in prevention and first-line treatment to attenuate or reverse NAFLD. Dietary patterns, their composition and weight reduction would be the most relevant nutritional aspects in NAFDL treatment. Read More

Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Unidad de Medicina y Cirugía Experimental (Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Gregorio Marañón), Madrid, Spain.

Background: Dose calculations in intraoperative electron radiation therapy (IOERT) rely on the conventional assumption of water-equivalent tissues at the applicator end, which defines a flat irradiation surface. However, the shape of the irradiation surface modifies the dose distribution. Our study explores, for the first time, the use of surface scanning methods for three-dimensional dose calculation of IOERT. Read More

Acta Ortop Mex 2018 May-Jun;32(3):157-162

Servicio de Cirugía Articular, Hospital Juárez de México, Ciudad de México.

Background: Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) aims to restore the original anatomy. The clinical outcome could be imperfect when graft placement is not in an anatomical position; moreover, the conventional transtibial reconstruction of the ACL often locates the graft away from the anatomical site, leading to abnormal biomechanical behavior and kinematics of the knee. The objective of this work was to assess the importance of the angular reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament during arthroscopic replacement and to compare the postoperative functional results.
