Factors influencing the length of the incision and the operating time for total thyroidectomy.

BMC Surg 2012 Jul 31;12:15. Epub 2012 Jul 31.

Department of Surgical Sciences, University Sapienza of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Background: The incision used for thyroid surgery has become shorter over time, from the classical 10 cm long Kocher incision to the shortest 15 mm access achieved with Minimally Invasive Video-Assisted Thyroidectomy. This rather large interval encompasses many different possible technical choices, even if we just consider open surgery.The aim of the study was to assess the correlation between incision length and operation duration with a set of biometric and clinical factors and establish a rationale for the decision on the length of incision in open surgery.

Late phase TNF-alpha depression in natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) peritoneoscopy.

Surgery 2008 Mar 21;143(3):318-28. Epub 2007 Dec 21.

Case Advanced Surgical Endoscopy Team (CASE-T) Laboratory, Departments of Surgery and Gastroenterology, Case Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio 44106, USA.

Background: Natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) allows access to the peritoneal cavity without skin incisions. Contamination of the peritoneal cavity by enteric contents may render NOTES more physiologically and immunologically invasive than previously thought. Measurement of interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) is a validated method to quantify surgical stress. Read More

A cost-effective approach to establishing a surgical skills laboratory.

Surgery 2007 Nov;142(5):712-21

Department of Surgery, and Institute for Clinical Simulation and Patient Safety, Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19140, USA.

Background: Recent studies comparing inexpensive low-fidelity box trainers to expensive computer-based virtual reality systems demonstrate similar acquisition of surgical skills and transferability to the clinical setting. With new mandates emerging that all surgical residency programs have access to a surgical skills laboratory, we describe our cost-effective approach to teaching basic and advanced open and laparoscopic skills utilizing inexpensive bench models, box trainers, and animate models.

Methods: Open models (basic skills, bowel anastomosis, vascular anastomosis, trauma skills) and laparoscopic models (basic skills, cholecystectomy, Nissen fundoplication, suturing and knot tying, advanced in vivo skills) are constructed using a combination of materials found in our surgical research laboratories, retail stores, or donated by industry.

Laparoscopic colorectal surgery is safe in the high-risk patient: a NSQIP risk-adjusted analysis.

Surgery 2007 Oct;142(4):594-7; discussion 597.e1-2

Department of Surgery, VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA.

Background: Laparoscopic colectomy was considered initially to be contraindicated in patients at high risk for operative morbidity and mortality. We hypothesized that this procedure is safe to perform in high-risk patients, stratifying this risk using National VA Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) algorithms.

Methods: A case-matched, comparative study was performed for high-risk veteran patients who underwent colectomy during the period October 2002-September 2004. Read More

Posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy--results of 560 procedures in 520 patients.

Surgery 2006 Dec;140(6):943-8; discussion 948-50

Klinik für Chirurgie und Zentrum für Minimal Invasive Chirurgie, Kliniken Essen-Mitte, Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus der Universität Essen, Germany.

Background: The posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy is less popular than the laparoscopic transabdominal method. Due to the direct approach to the adrenal glands, however, the posterior retroperitoneal access is easy to use and may offer advantages not available with other endoscopic procedures for adrenalectomy.

Methods: Between July 1994 and March 2006, we performed 560 adrenalectomies (right side: n = 258; left side: n = 302) by the posterior retroperitoneoscopic approach in 520 patients (200 male, 320 female; age, 10 to 83 years). Read More

Immunologic effects of hand-assisted surgery on peritoneal macrophages: comparison to open and standard laparoscopic approaches.

Surgery 2006 Jan;139(1):39-45

Department of Surgery, University of Massachusetts Medical School, 55 Lake Avenue North, Ste. H1-760, Worcester, MA 01655, USA.

Background: Exaggerated activation of peritoneal immunity after major abdominal surgery activates peritoneal macrophages (PMs), which may lead to a relative local immunosuppression. Although laparoscopy (L) is known to elicit a smaller attenuation of peritoneal host defenses, compared with open (O) surgery, effects of the hand-assisted (HA) approach have not been investigated to date.

Methods: Eighteen pigs underwent a transabdominal nephrectomy via O, HA, or L approach. Read More
