Cir Esp 2018 May 24. Epub 2018 May 24.

Servicio de Cirugía General y Digestivo, Institut de Malalties Digestives i Metabòliques (IMDiM), Hospital Clínic, CIBERehd, IDIBAPS, Universidad de Barcelona, Barcelona, España.

Introduction: Cortical-sparing adrenalectomy is a suitable treatment for hereditary and sporadic bilateral pheochromocytoma, in cases of low risk of malignancy, to reduce the possibility of adrenal insufficiency assuming the chance of local recurrence. The aim of the study is to analyze the functional results of partial adrenalectomy by retroperitoneal endoscopic approach in single-adrenal patients or patients requiring bilateral adrenalectomy.

Methods: Prospective study between January 2015 and February 2016 including pheochromocytoma patients diagnosed with low risk of malignant mutations. Read More

Unidad de Cirugía Hepatobiliar y Pancreática, Servicio de Cirugía General y del Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario de Valme, Sevilla, España.

Introduction: In spite of the acquired experience with laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) for choledocholithiasis management, there is still a risk of biliary leakage of 5% to 15% following choledochotomy closure. We evaluate the usefulness of fibrin-collagen sealants to reduce the incidence of biliary fistula after laparoscopic choledochorrhaphy.

Methods: We report a retrospective analysis of 96 patients undergoing LCBDE from March 2009 to March 2017, whose closure of the bile duct was completed by antegrade stenting and choledochorraphy or by performing a primary suture. Read More

Current use of molecular profiling for indeterminate thyroid nodules.

Cir Esp 2018 May 17. Epub 2018 May 17.

Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal, Madrid, España.

Even though cytology remains the gold standard to assess the nature of thyroid nodules, up to 30% of the results are indeterminate (BethesdaIII and IV). In these cases, current guidelines recommend performing diagnostic surgery, which proves malignancy in only 15-30% of cases. A more precise method is needed to avoid unnecessary surgeries, surgical complications and costs in the process of diagnosing indeterminate nodules. Read More

Cir Esp 2018 Jun - Jul;96(6):317-325

Servicio de Cirugía General, Hospital General de Granollers , Granollers, España.

The role of oral antibiotic prophylaxis and mechanical bowel preparation in colorectal surgery remains controversial. The lack of efficacy of mechanical preparation to improve infection rates, its adverse effects, and multimodal rehabilitation programs have led to a decline in its use. This review aims to evaluate current evidence on antegrade colonic cleansing combined with oral antibiotics for the prevention of surgical site infections. Read More

Robotic resection of the liver caudate lobe: technical description and initial consideration.

Cir Esp 2018 Mar 21;96(3):162-168. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

Departamento de Cirugía General y Emergencia, Complejo Hospitalario Villa Sofia-Cervello, Palermo, Italia.

Introduction: Firstly described in 2002, the robotic liver surgery has not spread widely due to its high cost and the lack of a standardized training program. Still being considered as a 'development in progress' technique, it has however a potential to overcome the traditional limitations of the laparoscopic approach in liver interventions.

Methods: We analyzed the postoperative outcomes of 10 patients who had undergone robotic partial resection of the caudate lobe (Spiegel lobe) from March 2014 to May 2016 in order to evaluate the advantages of robotic technique in hands of a young surgeon. Read More
