Application of a 3D-printed "fistula stent" in plugging enteroatmospheric fistula with open abdomen: A case report.

World J Gastroenterol 2019 Apr;25(14):1775-1782

Research Institute of General Surgery, Jinling Hospital, Nanjing 210002, Jiangsu Province, China.

Background: Open abdomen (OA) has been generally accepted for its magnificent superiority and effectiveness in patients with severe trauma, severe intra-abdominal infection, and abdominal compartment syndrome. In the meantime, OA calls for a mass of nursing and the subsequent enteroatomospheric fistula (EAF), which is one of the most common complications of OA therapy, remains a thorny challenge.

Case Summary: Our team applied thermoplastic polyurethane as a befitting material for producing a 3D-printed "fistula stent" in the management of an EAF patient, who was initially admitted to local hospital because of abdominal pain and distension and diagnosed with bowel obstruction. Read More

Intraperitoneal alloplasty combined with the anterior separation technique in giant incisional hernias.

Pol Przegl Chir 2018 Dec;91(1):1-5

Ukrainian Hernia Society P.L. Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Department of Surgery and Proctology; Ukrainian Center for Surgical Treatment of Abdominal Hernia.

The use of the anterior technique for abdominal wall components separation combined with "onlay" alloplasty (ACST + onlay) in giant incisional hernias (IH) may pose a surgical challenge as it does not exclude increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and the occurrence of abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). There remains a high incidence of surgical site complications. In our view, the use of intra-abdominal alloplasty combined with anterior separation of the anterior abdominal wall components (ACST + IPOM) will contribute to the improvement of surgical outcomes in giant IH.

Fluid management as a risk factor for intra-abdominal compartment syndrome in burn patients: A Total Body Surface Area (TBSA) - independent multicenter trial Part I.

J Burn Care Res 2019 Mar 28. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Dpt. of Hand, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Microsurgery, Burn Center, BG Trauma Center Ludwigshafen, University of Heidelberg, Germany.

Fluid management is one of the anticipated risk factors for intra-abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Since fluid requirements depend on the burned total body surface area (TBSA), an independent analysis is necessary to adapt resuscitation protocols and prevent this life-threatening complication. A retrospective multicenter study with matched-pair analysis was conducted in four German burn centers including 38 burn patients with ACS who underwent decompressive laparotomy. Read More

Oxidative stress and biochemical markers in prenatally androgenized sheep after neonatal treatment with GnRH agonist.

J Inflamm Res 2019 6;12:65-71. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Laboratory of Biotechnology and Animal Reproduction - BioRep, Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM), Santa Maria, RS, Brazil,

Background: Disruption of the balance between the production of ROS and their removal through enzymatic and non-enzymatic (antioxidant) processes has been proposed as a new mechanism in the pathology of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Evidence from animal models of PCOS (prenatally androgenized sheep) has suggested that treatment with insulin sensitizers, but not antiandrogens, can reduce increases in ROS.

Materials And Methods: In the present study, we investigated the effects of neonatal treatment with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist (leuprolide acetate) on prenatally androgenized sheep with testosterone propionate to determine its impact on oxidative stress molecules (ferric reducing antioxidant power [FRAP], advanced oxidation protein product [AOPP], nitric oxide [NOx], albumin) at 8, 12, and 18 months of age.

School Nurses on the Front Lines of Medicine: Emergencies Associated With Sport and Physical Activities: Part 1.

NASN Sch Nurse 2019 May 9;34(3):155-161. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Professor, Departments of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, Penn State College of Medicine.

Illness and injury associated with sport and physical activities may occur in the school setting. Although most sport-related illness and injury in students are considered minor emergencies, life- and limb-threatening illnesses or injuries may occur, such as sudden cardiac arrest, heat stroke, status asthmaticus, catastrophic brain or cervical spine injuries, hypoglycemia, blunt chest/abdominal injuries, or extremity fractures requiring surgery. It is important for the school nurse to recognize potential life- and limb-threatening emergencies associated with sport and physical activity, to initiate stabilization of the student with life- and limb-threatening symptoms, and to triage these students to an appropriate level of care (back to the classroom, home with their guardian with follow up at their primary healthcare provider's office, or directly to the closest emergency department via emergency medical services).

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a complication of assisted reproductive treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). The pathophysiology of severe OHSS includes a humorally mediated capillary leak syndrome that is predominantly centered on the intra-abdominal space. Severe OHSS is frequently complicated by acute kidney injury (AKI), which can be due to any of a variety of mechanisms, each requiring a different management strategy. Read More

Systematic Review of Laparostomy/Open Abdomen to Prevent Acute Compartimental Syndrome (ACS).

Maedica (Buchar) 2018 Sep;13(3):179-182

Carlo Urbani Hospital, Jesi, Ancona, Italy.

Laparostomy is defined as a surgical technique in which the peritoneal cavity is opened and left open, called "open abdomen" (OA). An open abdomen presents numerous challenges for the clinician. Specific pathologies like severe intraabdominal sepsis, trauma requiring damage control, abdominal compartment syndrome, staged abdominal repair and other complex abdominal pathologies can be managed with laparostomy.

Functions of adipose-resident immune subsets and the impact on metabolic syndrome.

Authors:
Daniel M Altmann

Immunology 2018 12;155(4):405-406

Department of Medicine, Hammersmith Hospital, London, UK.

There is a growing appreciation of the role in the aetiology of metabolic syndrome that is played by the interplay of diet, microbiota and the interactions of immune cells and adipose cells in visceral adipose tissue. Recent studies have highlighted the programmes, properties and roles of the specialized, resident immune subsets that are abundant in adipose tissue, which may be considered a newly identified lymphoid compartment for immunology research. The findings indicate important roles for resident T effector and regulatory cells, innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells and macrophages, among others. Read More

Effects of obesity on burn resuscitation.

Burns 2018 12 31;44(8):1947-1953. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

The effects of obesity on resuscitation after severe burn are not well understood. Formulas to calculate 24-h resuscitation volumes incorporate body weight, which in obese patients often leads to excessive fluid administration and potential complications such as pulmonary edema, extremity or abdominal compartment syndrome, and longer mechanical ventilation. We evaluated the impact of obesity on 24-h fluid resuscitation after severe burn using a cohort of 145 adults admitted to the burn ICU from January 2014 to March 2017 with >20% total body surface area burns.

[Paracentesis as abdominal decompression therapy in neuroblastoma MS with massive hepatomegaly].

Cir Pediatr 2018 Oct 17;31(4):196-199. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Servicio Cirugía Pediátrica. Hospital de Cruces. Baracaldo (Vizcaya).

Neuroblastoma MS with massive hepatomegaly is a small percentage of cases of neuroblastoma. It is more common in infants less than 4-6 weeks of life, and involves, in contrast to the standard of the NB MS, poor prognosis given the complications that can have. In the case of abdominal compartment syndrome it is recommended a quick start of chemotherapy, associating or not radiation therapy, to try to reduce the size of the liver, and if necessary, decompressive laparotomy.

Minimally invasive techniques and indocyanine angiography in anterior abdominal wall reconstruction after multiple laparotomies.

Wideochir Inne Tech Maloinwazyjne 2018 Sep 25;13(3):412-416. Epub 2018 May 25.

Department of General Surgery, Puck Hospital, Puck, Poland.

Anterior abdominal wall reconstruction surgery in patients who have undergone multiple laparotomies is associated with a high risk of complications. For this reason, minimally invasive surgery techniques are used to avoid abdominal compartment syndrome, to enhance wound healing and to reduce postoperative pain and blood loss. This paper presents a case of a patient who was admitted to the Department of General Surgery in Puck Hospital as a result of extensive anterior abdominal wall deformation with an end descending colostomy.
