Computed Tomography with Intravenous Contrast Is Not Associated with Development of Acute Kidney Injury in Severely Injured Pediatric Patients.

Am Surg 2019 Jan;85(1):e1-e5

Data for the incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) related to intravenous contrast administration in the pediatric trauma population are limited. Obtaining a creatinine value before elective CT scans is a relatively accepted standard of care. We sought to determine whether there was any significant difference in the incidence of AKI between severely injured patients who received IV contrast and those who did not. Read More

Single-Institution Early Experience and Learning Curve with Robotic Liver Resections.

Am Surg 2019 Jan;85(1):115-119

Robotic liver resection is being introduced with its potential to overcome limitations of conventional laparoscopy. This study was undertaken to document early experience and learning curve of robotic liver resection in our institution. All patients undergoing liver resection between 2013 and 2017 were prospectively followed. Read More

Barriers to Colonoscopy in an Uninsured Patient Population-A Quality Improvement Project.

Am Surg 2019 Jan;85(1):111-114

Colorectal cancer remains common, with the "80 per cent by 2018" initiative proposed by the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable. This study was designed to examine obstacles for patients who did not receive their scheduled colonoscopy, focusing on the impact of insurance status. Retrospective chart review was carried out on patients who did not complete their colonoscopy as scheduled from January 2013 to June 2017. Read More

Irreversible Electroporation as a Bridge to Liver Transplantation.

Am Surg 2019 Jan;85(1):103-110

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in proximity to major hepatic vasculature poses a risk for invasion, which would contraindicate liver transplantation, yet, is difficult to treat with thermal ablation. This study was undertaken to evaluate the feasibility of irreversible electroporation (IRE) as a bridge to transplantation for high-risk tumors. All patients with HCC in proximity to major hepatic vasculature treated with laparoscopic IRE as bridge to transplantation were studied. Read More

Review of Operative Treatment of Delayed Presentation of Acute Cholecystitis.

Am Surg 2019 Jan;85(1):98-102

Treatment of patients with delayed acute cholecystitis (AC) includes antibiotics and interval cholecystectomy based on proposed change at 72 hours from symptom onset to a chronic fibrotic phase with concern for increased complication rates. The purpose of our study was to compare the outcomes of patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) for AC before and after this golden 72-hour window. After institutional review board approval, a retrospective study was performed of patients presenting over two years with AC, who underwent LC during the index admission. Read More
