Sonographic Measurement of the Patellar Tendon Should Predict Autograft Bone Patellar Tendon Bone (BPTB) Size: Comparison of Anatomical and Clinical Findings.

J Invest Surg 2019 Feb 7:1-6. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

a Artroscopia GC. Fundación García Cugat , Barcelona , Spain.

The use of BPTB autograft is frequently used in ACL reconstruction, however, the risk of potential failure in patients with an anatomically unfavorable patellar tendon may predispose to reconstruction failure. Anatomical study of the extensor apparatus of the knee can provide knowledge about the best option obtain the graft and perform a better preoperative planning. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a simple, reproducible, affordable technique that could be valid for patellar tendon evaluation. Read More

The use of marginal liver grafts has become an inevitable option because of the continuous increase in the number of patients awaiting liver transplantation and the severe shortage of suitable donors. Recently, several approaches have been adapted to expand the donor pool and improve the outcome of marginal grafts in both deceased and living donor liver transplantation. Accordingly, this review discusses the various types of marginal grafts in both deceased and living donor liver transplantation, their outcome and the up-to-date innovations or strategies to extend the donor pool and improve the patient and graft survival post-transplant.

Frailty is characterized by a state of vulnerability to poor resolution of homoeostasis after a stressor event and is a consequence of age-related decline in many physiological systems during a lifetime. To access the association between frailty and delayed recovery of gastrointestinal function in patients undergoing elective colorectal cancer resections, 241 patients who had undergone elective colorectal cancer resections from July 2015 to August 2017 were investigated. The association of frailty with delayed recovery of gastrointestinal function, length of stay (LOS), and whether or not to transfer into intensive care unit (ICU) were analyzed. Read More

The Efficacy of Recombinant Platelet-Derived Growth Factor on Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate to Regenerate Femoral Critical Sized Segmental Defects: Longitudinal In Vivo Micro-CT Study in a Rat Model.

J Invest Surg 2018 Nov 15:1-13. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

c American Board of Endodontics , Chicago , IL , USA.

Background And Objectives: Beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) has been used for bone regeneration. The objective of this study was to assess longitudinally, the regeneration of critical sized segmental defects (CSSD) in rat femur using beta-TCP with or without recombinant platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) through in vivo micro-computed tomography (micro-CT).

Materials And Methods: Following ethical approval unilateral femoral CSSD measuring 5 mm was surgically created, under general anesthesia, in 30 male Wistar-Albino rats (aged 12-18 months; weighing 450-500 g). Read More

J Invest Surg 2018 Nov 5:1-6. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

c "Lefkos Stavros" Hospital , Athens , Greece.

Aim Of Study: We aimed to investigate whether the difference in pleural pressures (ΔP) is wider among patients who develop a residual pneumothorax after chest tube removal following lung resection surgery.

Materials And Methods: Ninety-eight patients who underwent lung resection were included in the study over a period of 12 months. The ΔP prior to chest tube removal in patients who developed a residual pneumothorax after chest tube removal was compared with that of patients who did not develop this complication. Read More

Intra-Aortic Balloon Occlusion Decreases Blood Loss During Open Reduction and Internal Fixation for Delayed Acetabular Fractures: A Retrospective Study of 43 Patients.

J Invest Surg 2018 Nov 5:1-6. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

a Department of Orthopedics , Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People's Hospital , Shanghai 200233 , China.

Aim: It is difficult to treat delayed acetabular fractures due to massive blood loss during operation. Temporary balloon occlusion of the abdominal aorta was introduced into sacral tumor surgery to reduce intraoperative hemorrhage. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of this method on reduction of intraoperative blood loss and analyze the complications of this technique in the treatment of delayed acetabular fracture.

Retardation of Preputial Wound Healing in Rats with Hypospadias Induced by Flutamide.

J Invest Surg 2018 Oct 31:1-8. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

a Department of Pediatric Urology Surgery , Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University , Chongqing , China.

Objective: The aim of this study was to identify a theoretical support for the prevention of urethral fistula following hypospadias repair, by comparing the preputial wound healing process in Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats with and without hypospadias induced by flutamide.

Methods: Fifteen pregnant SD rats were randomly divided into three groups. These rats in one group received the androgen receptor antagonist flutamide (25 mg/kg/day) from gestation days 11-17, to establish a rat model of hypospadias for further study of the molecular mechanisms of the hypospadias etiology.
