Laparoscopic versus hybrid approach for treatment of incisional ventral hernia: a prospective randomised multicentre study, 1-year results.

Surg Endosc 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Surgery, Oulu University Hospital, Oulu, Finland.

Purpose: Laparoscopic incisional ventral hernia repair (LIVHR) is often followed by seroma formation, bulging and failure to restore abdominal wall function. These outcomes are risk factors for hernia recurrence, chronic pain and poor quality of life (QoL). We aimed to evaluate whether LIVHR combined with defect closure (hybrid) follows as a diminished seroma formation and thereby has a lower rate of hernia recurrence and chronic pain compared to standard LIVHR.

Proposal of high-risk adenoma detection rate as an impactful, complementary quality indicator of colonoscopy.

Surg Endosc 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Cleveland Clinic Florida, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Background And Aims: Adenoma detection rate (ADR), a validated quality indicator (QI) of colonoscopy, does not take into account risk stratification of adenomas. Low-risk adenomas are not associated with a significantly increased risk of future colorectal cancer (CRC). On the other hand, high-risk adenomas (HRA) are associated with up to six fold higher risk of future CRC. Read More

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Kangbuk Samsung Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University College of Medicine, 29 Saemunan-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03181, Republic of Korea.

Background: Although thoracoscopic surgery is commonly performed in patients with a pneumothorax and persistent air leak, it is still difficult to identify a definite air leak site during thoracoscopic surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine the safety, efficacy, and feasibility of intraoperative air leak site detection in spontaneous pneumothorax through low-pressure carbon dioxide (CO) insufflation during thoracoscopic surgery.

Methods: Of 54 patients who underwent thoracoscopic pneumothorax operations between March 2017 and March 2018, 22 pneumothorax patients underwent surgery for a persistent air leak. Read More

Dynamic liver test patterns do not predict bile duct stones.

Surg Endosc 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Department of Medicine, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, D & T Building Room B4H100, 1983 Marengo St, Los Angeles, CA, 90033-1370, USA.

Background: Numerous models have been developed to predict choledocholithiasis. Recent work has shown that these algorithms perform suboptimally. Identification of clinical predictors with high positive and negative predictive value would minimize adverse events associated with unnecessary diagnostic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) while limiting the use of expensive tests including magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) for indeterminate cases.

Cost analysis in a randomized trial of early closure of a temporary ileostomy after rectal resection for cancer (EASY trial).

Surg Endosc 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Department of Surgery, Centre for Perioperative Optimization, Herlev and Gentofte Hospital, University of Copenhagen, Herlev, Denmark.

Background: Hospital costs associated with the treatment of rectal cancer are considerable and the formation of a temporary stoma accounts for additional costs. Results from the EASY trial showed that early closure of a temporary ileostomy was associated with significantly fewer postoperative complications but no difference in health-related quality of life up to 12 months after rectal resection. The aim of the present study was to perform a cost analysis within the framework of the EASY trial. Read More
