Changing Results to Change Results: Nudging Antimicrobial Prescribing for .

Open Forum Infect Dis 2021 Jun 16;8(6):ofaa605. Epub 2020 Dec 16.

University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine, Toronto, Ontario, Cananda.

Background: Patients who test positive for by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), with a negative toxin enzyme immunoassay (EIA), are commonly colonized and do not require treatment. However, clinicians often treat based on a positive PCR result regardless of the toxin EIA result. We evaluated the clinical impact of a microbiology reporting nudge, changing from a report that included both assay results along with treatment recommendations to one that suggested clinicians consider colonization or early infection.

A critical view of safety in left colectomy surgery: A case of renal artery injury.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 May 27;83:106035. Epub 2021 May 27.

Department of General and Emergency Surgery, Policlinico G. Martino, University of Messina, Italy.

Introduction: The standardization of the laparoscopic approach in left hemicolectomy was facilitated by the vascular anatomy of the left colon, which has few anatomical variants. The current technique for left hemicolectomy consists in approaching the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA), after identification of the inferior mesenteric vein (IMV), from above (craniocaudal) or from below (caudocranial). The type of approach is decided on the basis of the vascular window between the IMV and IMA. Read More

Complete Mesocolic Excision and D3 Lymphadenectomy versus Conventional Colectomy for Colon Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Ann Surg Oncol 2021 Jun 4. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Division of General Surgery, Department of Colorectal Surgery, Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias (HUCA), Avenida de Roma s/n, 33011, Oviedo, Spain.

Northwell North Shore/Long Island Jewish, Department of Surgery, Queens, NY 11040, USA.

Complications after pancreatoduodenectomy are common, and range widely in timing of presentation, relation to pancreatobiliary pathology, and necessity of operative intervention. We present a case of a 74-year-old male with history of pancreatoduodenectomy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma who presented 11 months after index operation with cecal volvulus and required emergent right hemicolectomy. Prior history of pancreatoduodenectomy with mobilization of the right colon likely predisposed him to development of this surgical emergency. Read More
