INTRODUCTION: Acute gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding can be a life-threatening condition. This is usually diagnosed and managed by an upper GI tract endoscopy. When treating actively bleeding duodenal ulcers, surgical intervention, or arterial …

OBJECTIVES: To describe patient-specific characteristics associated with non-operative failure leading to surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of patients treated for spinal metastases from 2005 to 2017. We deemed…

Executive Summary: 1. Foot infections in patients with diabetes cause substantial morbidity and frequent visits to health care professionals and may lead to amputation of a lower extremity. 2. Diabetic foot infections require attention to local…

Technetium-99m-sestamibi (MIBI) is a new radionuclide for imaging parathyroid tissue; The purpose of this study was to evaluate parathyroid localization using single radiotracer, dual-phase MIBI scintigraphy and to compare the results to…

Mandibular hypoplasia, airway obstruction, and a typical wide U-shaped cleft palate comprise the Robin sequence, Although much has been written regarding the treatment of these patients in the neonatal period, the literature reveals little…

Background: Patients with acutely treated femoral shaft fractures with reamed intramedullary nailing are at risk for acute respiratory distress syndrome due to liberation of bone marrow fat particles that travel to the lung and cause damage to the…

This study examines the tissue engineering of a human ear model through use of bovine chondrocytes isolated from four different cartilaginous sites (nasoseptal, articular, costal, and auricular) and seeded onto biodegradable poly(l-lactic acid) and…

There is increasing evidence that the herpes simplex virus may account for some gastric ulcer disease. To examine this possibility, 62 tissue biopsies from 21 patients were obtained during esophagogastroduodenoscopy for gastroduodenal ulcer disease…

Although cholelithiasis is uncommon in children, its laparoscopic treatment has progressively become more popular among pediatric surgeons. This is due in part to the fact that compared with the open technique, laparoscopic treatment is less invasive…

Spigelian hernias are uncommon, and preoperative diagnosis is often difficult, The use of the laparoscope has simplified the diagnosis and subsequent repair of these rare hernias, We report a case diagnosed and repaired using laparoscopic techniques…

Over the last few years, general surgery has seen the use of more and more laparoscopic techniques in the management of common surgical problems. This expanded use is attributable not only to the excellent results seen with laparoscopic procedures…

Malignant melanoma involving the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is diagnosed premortem in only 4 per cent of patients with the disease, even though in autopsy series 60 per cent of patients who died of malignant melanoma have GI metastases. Usually,…

Background and Objectives: The degradation in robotic skills that occurs during periods of robotic surgical inactivity in newly trained surgeons was measured. The role of animate training in robotic skill was also assessed. Methods: Robotically naive…
