Effects of perioperative oral care on prevention of postoperative pneumonia after lung resection: Multicenter retrospective study with propensity score matching analysis.

Surgery 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Japan.

Background: Postoperative pneumonia can be a fatal complication that may occur after lung resection in cancer patients. Some reports have shown that the incidence of postoperative pneumonia is decreased after esophageal surgery by perioperative oral care; however, there exist no data to suggest that a lack of perioperative oral care can be a risk factor for postoperative pneumonia after lung resection. To investigate the association between the preventive effect of oral care and postoperative pneumonia, we conducted a multicenter, retrospective study of lung cancer patients who underwent lung resection.

Cervical spine alignment following surgery for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS): a pre-to-post analysis of 81 patients.

BMC Surg 2019 Jan 15;19(1). Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Clinic for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, Center for Orthopaedics, Trauma Surgery and Spinal Cord Injury, Heidelberg University Hospital, Schlierbacher Landstr.200a, 69118, Heidelberg, Germany.

Background: Several studies have emphasized the importance of restoring thoracic kyphosis (TK) in the setting of AIS, but very few have discussed changes in cervical spine alignment following surgery. Aim of this study was to evaluate reciprocal cervical alignment change after modification of global and regional thoracolumbar alignment with surgery in the setting of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).

Methods: Baseline and 2-yrs follow-up radiographs of AIS patients (n = 81) were analysed measuring cervical parameters (upper cervical: C2-C0, McGregor Slope; lower cervical: C2-C7, C2-C7 sagittal vertical axis (SVA), C2-T3, C2-T3SVA, C2-T1Harrison (C2-T1Ha), T1 Slope (T1S)), thoracic, lumbar, pelvic and global alignment parameters.

Care fragmentation is associated with increased short-term mortality during postoperative readmissions: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Surgery 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Cardiovascular Outcomes Research Laboratories, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles; Department of Surgery, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles. Electronic address:

Background: Recent trends toward regionalization of complex surgical procedures may increase the risk for care fragmentation during readmissions. Conflicting conclusions have been reported regarding risk factors and consequences of nonindex readmissions (ie, readmission to a separate hospital than the one where surgery was originally performed). We seek to perform a comprehensive review of existing literature. Read More

Does retrieval bag use during laparoscopic appendectomy reduce postoperative infection?

Surgery 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA; Center for Surgery and Public Health, Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. Electronic address:

Background: Appendectomy is the most commonly performed emergency operation in the United States, with approximately 370,000 patients undergoing the procedure every year. Although laparoscopic appendectomy is associated with decreased complications when compared with open appendectomy, the risk for infectious complications, including surgical site infection, intra-abdominal abscess, and sepsis, remains a significant source of postoperative morbidity and health care cost. The goal of this study is to determine whether the appendix retrieval technique during laparoscopic appendectomy affects risk of infectious complications. Read More
