Comparative analysis of the intervertebral disc signal and annulus changes between immediate and 1-year postoperative MRI after transforaminal endoscopic lumbar discectomy and annuloplasty.

Neuroradiology 2019 Apr 8;61(4):411-419. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Spine Center, Department of Neurosurgery, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, South Korea.

Purpose: Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after microdiscectomy for lumbar disc herniation frequently shows spinal canal compression by the remaining annulus, which gradually decreases over time. Transforaminal endoscopic lumbar discectomy (TELD) can remove the herniation with minimal trauma to surrounding soft tissue. We aim to identify this remodeling of annulus fibrosus and the change of disc signal after TELD. Read More

The role of intraperitoneal ropivacaine in laparoscopic appendicectomy: a prospective, double-blinded randomized control Australian study.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Jan 24;89(1-2):101-105. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of General Surgery, Armadale-Kelmscott Memorial Hospital, Armadale, Western Australia, Australia.

Background: Currently, intraoperative use of local anaesthetic is not routinely given in all laparoscopic appendicectomies. Although its use has been widely studied in laparoscopic hernia repairs, gynaecological laparoscopy and laparoscopic cholecystectomies, there are no published trials of the use of intraperitoneal local anaesthetic during laparoscopic appendicectomy in the Australasian setting. The aim of this study was to determine whether the use of intraperitoneal ropivacaine during laparoscopic appendicectomy will reduce the amount of post-operative opiate analgesia used, abdominal pain, post-operative nausea or vomiting, shoulder tip pain and length of hospital stay.

Closed loop small bowel obstruction due to paracaecal internal herniation: a lesson in rarity.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Dec 19;11(1). Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of General Surgery, Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College and General Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

A 40-year-old man presented to the emergency department of our tertiary hospital with acute abdominal pain since 1 day, which responded to conservative measures initially. On further investigation and abdominal CT, he was diagnosed with closed loop small bowel obstruction with an encapsulated lesion with small bowel loops within, in the right iliac fossa, which was initially missed. On exploration, the patient had a sac in the right iliac fossa (paracaecal incarcerated internal hernia) with distended bowel loops within, the sac was excised after reduction of the contents.

J Surg Case Rep 2018 Nov 23;2018(11):rjy318. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Division of Surgery, Fujinomiya City General Hospital, Fujinomiya, Japan.

Transmesenteric hernia is a rare cause of small bowel strangulation in adults and, to our knowledge, no one has reported the existence of two mesenteric defects in an adult. Our patient was a 73-year-old Japanese woman who presented to our emergency department complaining of abdominal pain and nausea. Computed tomography with contrast enhancement revealed a closed loop obstruction in the pelvis, suggesting small bowel strangulation due to an internal hernia. Read More

A Multimodality Navigation System for Endoscopic Fetal Surgery: A Phantom Case Study for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

Surg Innov 2019 Feb 28;26(1):27-36. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

2 King's College Hospital, Fetal Medicine Research Institute, London, UK.

This article presents a multi-modality tracking and navigation system achieved by merging optical tracking and ultrasound imaging into a novel navigation software to help in surgical pre-planning and real-time target setting and guidance. Fetal surgeries require extensive experience in coordination of hand-eye-ultrasound-surgical equipment, knowledge, and precise assessment of relative anatomy. While there are navigation systems available for similar constrained working spaces in arthroscopic and cardiovascular procedures, fetal minimally invasive surgery does not yet have a dedicated navigation platform capable of supporting robotic instruments that can be adapted to the set of unique procedures.

In vivo evaluation of post-operative pain reduction on rat model after implantation of intraperitoneal PET meshes functionalised with cyclodextrins and loaded with ropivacaine.

Biomaterials 2019 Feb 23;192:260-270. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Univ. Lille, Inserm, CHU Lille, U1008 - Controlled Drug Delivery Systems and Biomaterials, F-59000 Lille, France. Electronic address:

The avoidance of post-herniorrhaphy pain can be challenging for hernia repair and has the greatest impact on patient's quality of life, health care utilisation and cost to society. Visceral meshes, functionalised with an efficient drug carrier system - hydroxypropyl beta-cyclodextrin polymer (polyHPβCD) coating, were developed to give a prolonged intraperitoneal analgesic drug release. We attempted to evaluate the in vivo pain-relief efficacy of ropivacaine loaded polyHPβCD functionalised polyester meshes in a rat model of visceral pain induced by colorectal distension (CRD).
