Fluorescent angiography in colorectal surgery, the influence of augmented reality in the operating room on the anastomotic leakage after low rectal resection.

Rozhl Chir 2021 ;100(11):543-551

Introduction: Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence angiography (FA) is an augmented reality (AR) technique. When used in the operating room, it allows colorectal surgeons to visualize and evaluate intestinal blood flow in real time, identify lymph nodes, ureters, or peritoneal metastases.

RGB-D-Based Method for Measuring the Angular Range of Hip and Knee Joints during Home Care Rehabilitation.

Sensors (Basel) 2021 Dec 28;22(1). Epub 2021 Dec 28.

Dipartimento Ingegneria Industriale, Università di Firenze, Via Santa Marta 3, 50100 Firenze, Italy.

Home-based rehabilitation is becoming a gold standard for patient who have undergone knee arthroplasty or full knee replacement, as it helps healthcare costs to be minimized. Nevertheless, there is a chance of increasing adverse health effects in case of home care, primarily due to the patients' lack of motivation and the doctors' difficulty in carrying out rigorous supervision. The development of devices to assess the efficient recovery of the operated joint is highly valued both for the patient, who feels encouraged to perform the proper number of activities, and for the doctor, who can track him/her remotely.

Vertical sleeve gastrectomy increases duodenal Lactobacillus spp. richness associated with the activation of intestinal HIF2α signaling and metabolic benefits.

Mol Metab 2022 Jan 6:101432. Epub 2022 Jan 6.

Department of Surgery, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Electronic address:

Objective: Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) is one of the most efficacious treatments for obesity and its comorbidities. Although a range of evidence suggests that alterations of the microbiota in the distal gut following VSG are pivotal to these metabolic improvements, the effect of surgery to alter the microbiota of the proximal intestine and its effect on host physiology remain largely unknown. As the main bacteria in the upper small intestine, Lactobacillus subspecies have been appreciated as important regulators of gut function. Read More

Relation of the Sural Nerve and Medial Neurovascular Bundle With the Achilles Tendon in Children With Cerebral Palsy Treated by Percutaneous Achilles Tendon Lengthening.

J Pediatr Orthop 2022 Feb;42(2):e201-e205

Ortopediatri Istanbul, Academy of Pediatric Orthopaedics.

Background: One of the most common treatment options for a short Achilles tendon (AT) in cerebral palsy is percutaneous AT lengthening using 3 hemisections. Because of proximity of neurovascular structures around the tendon, iatrogenic injury to them have been a concern about this technique. The sural nerve (SN) is under risk of injury at the site of the lateral incomplete cut, especially if it is done proximally. Read More

Biomechanical feasibility of semi-rigid stabilization and semi-rigid lumbar interbody fusion: a finite element study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Jan 3;23(1):10. Epub 2022 Jan 3.

Department of Orthopedics, National Cheng Kung University Hospital, College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan.

Background: Semi-rigid lumbar fusion offers a compromise between pedicle screw-based rigid fixation and non-instrumented lumbar fusion. However, the use of semi-rigid interspinous stabilization (SIS) with interspinous spacer and ligamentoplasty and semi-rigid posterior instrumentation (SPI) to assist interbody cage as fusion constructs remained controversial. The purpose of this study is to investigate the biomechanical properties of semi-rigidly stabilized lumbar fusion using SIS or SPI and their effect on adjacent levels using finite element (FE) method.
