Facility type and surgical specialty are associated with suboptimal surgical antimicrobial prophylaxis practice patterns: a multi-center, retrospective cohort study.

Antimicrob Resist Infect Control 2019 6;8:49. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

2Center for Healthcare Organization and Implementation Research (CHOIR), VA Boston, Healthcare System, 150 South Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02130 USA.

Background: Guidelines recommend discontinuation of antimicrobial prophylaxis within 24 h after incision closure in uninfected patients. However, how facility and surgical specialty factors affect the implementation of these evidence-based surgical prophylaxis guidelines in outpatient surgery is unknown. Thus, we sought to measure how facility complexity, including ambulatory surgical center (ASC) status and availability of ancillary services, impact adherence to guidelines for timely discontinuation of antimicrobial prophylaxis after outpatient surgery.

Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Biliary Drainage for Benign Biliary Diseases.

Clin Endosc 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Gastroenterology, Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

Although endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the first-line treatment for benign biliary diseases, this procedure is technically difficult in some conditions such as a surgically altered anatomy and gastric outlet obstruction. After a failed ERCP, a surgical or a percutaneous approach is selected as a rescue procedure; however, various endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided interventions are increasingly utilized in pancreatobiliary diseases, including EUS-guided rendezvous for failed biliary cannulation, EUS-guided antegrade treatment for stone management, and EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy for anastomotic strictures in patients with a surgically altered anatomy. There are some technical hurdles in EUS-guided interventions for benign biliary diseases owing to the difficulty in puncturing a relatively small bile duct and in subsequent guidewire manipulation, as well as the lack of dedicated devices.

Total Surface Area Influences Stone Free Outcomes in Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy for Distal Ureteral Calculi.

J Endourol 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

University of British Columbia, Urologic Sciences , Level 6 , 2775 Laurel st. , Level 6 - 2775 Laurel St , Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada , V5Z 1M9.

Introduction: Current American Urological Association guidelines recommend ureteroscopy as primary management of distal ureteral stones and shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) as a secondary option. Utilization of SWL in the management of nephrolithiasis in North America has decreased. We hypothesized that SWL continues to be an effective option in the management of distal ureteral calculi and studied data from our center in patients who received SWL for distal ureteral stones.

U.O.C. Nefrologia, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Via G. Moscati 31, 00168, Roma, Italy.

Currently an evidence-based approach to nephrolithiasis is hampered by a lack of randomized controlled trials. Thus, there is a need for common platforms for data sharing and recruitment of patients to interventional studies. A first step in achieving this objective would be to share practice methods and protocols for subsequent standardization in what is still a heterogeneous clinical field. Read More

Endoscopic Management of Complex Biliary Stone Disease.

Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am 2019 Apr 2;29(2):257-275. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Methodist Dallas Medical Center, 221 West Colorado Boulevard, Pavillion II, Suite 630, Dallas, TX 75208, USA.

Choledocholithiasis is a common disorder that is managed universally by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). For difficult or complex stones, ERCP with conventional techniques may fail to achieve biliary clearance in 10% to 15% of cases. This review summarizes the literature regarding the current available endoscopic techniques for complex stone disease, including mechanical lithotripsy, endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation, cholangioscopy-guided lithotripsy, and endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary access.

Advances in Endoscopic Imaging of the Biliary Tree.

Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am 2019 Apr;29(2):187-204

David H. Koch Medical Center, Department of Gastroenterology, Joan & Sanford I. Weill Medical, College of Cornell University, New York Presbyterian Hospital, 1278 York Avenue, 9th Floor, New York, NY 10065, USA.

Direct endoscopic imaging of the biliary tree is increasingly performed by endoscopists since the introduction of digital single-operator cholangioscopy. In parallel, there have been several advances to overcome the challenges associated with direct peroral cholangioscopy with development of multibending cholangioscopes and new devices to enable direct placement of an endoscope into the biliary tree without a supporting duodenoscope. The indications for cholangioscopy are also evolving with newer indications, such as intraductal lithotripsy, foreign body (mostly stent) removal, guide wire cannulation of specific ducts, photodynamic therapy for cholangiocarcinoma, and performance of fluoroscopy-free cholangiography.

Technical Aspects of Bile Duct Evaluation and Exploration: An Update.

Surg Clin North Am 2019 Apr 10;99(2):259-282. Epub 2019 Feb 10.

Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School, 185 South Orange Avenue, MSB G586, Newark, NJ 07103, USA. Electronic address:

Consensus guidelines recommend patients with symptomatic cholelithiasis and suspected choledocholithiasis have common bile duct exploration (CBDE) at the time of cholecystectomy to prevent downstream problems. Despite superiority of single-stage cholecystectomy with CBDE, 2-stage precholecystectomy/postcholecystectomy with endoscopic clearance of the duct is commonly practiced. This is related to inadequate training in minimally invasive techniques, lack of technical support for efficient and safe CBDE, and surgeons' inexperience with complex biliary pathologic condition.

The epidemiology of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) has changed considerably in the last several decades. Previously a chronic disease characterized by frequent recurrences with a high rate of surgical interventions, it is now largely a self-limited disease that is medically managed. The role of acid suppression was widely recognized as being important in the pathogenesis of PUD in the 19th century, while it was not until the 1980s and 1990s that the importance of infection was identified.

Assessment of lower calyceal single-access percutaneous nephrolithotomy for staghorn stones: A single-surgeon and a single-center experience at KAMC, Riyadh.

Urol Ann 2019 Jan-Mar;11(1):62-65

Department of Surgery, College of Medicine, King Saud Bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Introduction: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is still the mainstay and the treatment of choice for most complex renal stones. The success of PCNL is defined by achieving a stone-free rate (SFR). Lower calyceal access PCNL is established to be the safest percutaneous access to the renal system, but controversy is present when it comes to SFR in comparison to upper calyceal and middle calyceal accesses.

Safety and feasibility of coronary lithotripsy supported by guide extension catheter for the treatment of calcified lesion in angulated vessel.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Interventional Cardiology, Hospital Clínico San Carlos, Madrid, Spain.

We report a case of successful coronary intervention with coronary lithotripsy facilitated by guide extension catheter for the treatment of severely calcified and bent vessel. Even though lithotripsy balloon currently available is relatively bulky, the contemporary rapid exchange guide extension catheter accommodated it with ease and helped smooth delivery of it. The present case showed the usefulness of this device combination for patients with complex coronary anatomies. Read More

Digital cholangioscopy-guided laser versus mechanical lithotripsy for large bile duct stone removal after failed papillary large-balloon dilation: a randomized study.

Endoscopy 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University and King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Thai Red Cross Society, Bangkok, Thailand.

Background:  Endoscopic papillary large-balloon dilation (EPLBD) allows for the complete removal of large common bile duct (CBD) stones without fragmentation; however, a significant proportion of very large stones and stones floating above a tapering CBD require lithotripsy. Mechanical lithotripsy and cholangioscopy-guided laser lithotripsy are both effective for stone fragmentation. This study aimed to directly compare, for the first time, the efficacy of these two techniques in terms of stone clearance rate, procedure duration, patient radiation exposure, and safety. Read More
