BACKGROUND: Dehiscence of intestinal anastomosis results in high morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of locally administered adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stromal cells in a model of high-risk colonic anastomosis in rats. METHODS: Seven days after induction of colitis with 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid, Wistar rats were submitted to a transection of the descending colon followed by end-to-end anastomosis and were then treated with 2×106 adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (from the preperitoneal fat) or an acellular culture solution instilled onto the surface of the anastomosis...

BACKGROUND: The evaluation of the malignancy risk of thyroid nodules involves clinical factors, sonographic characteristics, cytopathology, and molecular profiling. Altogether, this algorithm can be costly and time consuming. We evaluated the stepwise contribution of each diagnostic step toward an accurate prediction of malignancy. METHODS: A retrospective study of dominant nodules of 137 patients who underwent surgical excision was performed. A baseline logistic regression model for predicting malignancy was regressed on clinical factors...

BACKGROUND: Multifocality in papillary thyroid carcinoma is common. The aim of this study is to determine whether patients with multifocal disease, treated with lobectomy alone, have an increased risk of contralateral lobe papillary thyroid carcinoma, regional recurrence, and poorer survival. METHODS: After institutional review board approval, papillary thyroid carcinoma patients managed from 1986 to 2015 with lobectomy alone were identified from an institutional database...

BACKGROUND: Geriatric patients require specialized perioperative care, yet the impact of geriatric surgery proportion (a measure of experience) and geriatric surgery volume, on clinical outcomes is unknown. This study analyzes the association between proportion and volume and clinical outcomes after high-risk geriatric surgery. METHODS: Using the 2014 National Inpatient Sample, hospital encounters for older adults (≥65 years) undergoing high-risk geriatric surgery were identified...

BACKGROUND: Symptomatic hypocalcemia is a common complication of total thyroidectomy. Management strategies include responsive treatment initiation for symptoms or prevention by routine or parathyroid hormone-directed calcium supplementation. The comparative cost-effectiveness of even the most often utilized strategies is unclear. METHODS: A Markov cohort model was created to compare routine supplementation with calcium alone (RS), postoperative parathyroid hormone-based selective supplementation with calcium and calcitriol (SS), and no supplementation (NS) in asymptomatic patients...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative follow-up of papillary thyroid cancer includes serial serum thyroglobulin levels. This study aimed to determine whether stimulated thyroglobulin levels measured in the early postoperative period can accurately quantify the risk of recurrence in papillary thyroid cancer. METHODS: We undertook a cohort study of patients who underwent total thyroidectomy for papillary thyroid cancer ≥10 mm in the period 2000 to 2016 with complete biochemical data...

BACKGROUND: The threshold to perform total pancreatectomy is rather high, predominantly because of concerns for long-term consequences of brittle diabetes on patients' quality of life. Contemporary data on postoperative outcomes, diabetes management, and long-term quality of life after total pancreatectomy from large nationwide series are, however, lacking. METHODS: We performed a nationwide, retrospective cohort study among adults who underwent total pancreatectomy in 17 Dutch centers (2006-2016)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with an open abdomen after trauma or emergency surgery may benefit from reduced sedation and chemical paralysis. We studied the effect of attending surgeon experience on sedation depth and paralytic use, as well as enteral nutrition and time between laparotomies. METHODS: We performed an institutional review board-approved survey (Sedation Level after Emergent ExLap without Primary Fascial Closure) of the senior and active Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma membership using Qualtrics (Qualtrics, Inc, Provo, UT)...

INTRODUCTION: Although frequently used as an adjunct to cytology in patients with differentiated thyroid cancers, interpretation of thyroglobulin washout remains unclear. We aim to compare the utility of different analytic tools to develop recommendations for use in post-total thyroidectomy follow-up. METHODS: This is an institutional review board-approved retrospective study of patients who underwent lymph node fine needle aspiration biopsy with thyroglobulin washout between 2012 and 2018, during the post-total thyroidectomy follow-up of differentiated thyroid cancer...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac surgery and cardiopulmonary bypass are associated with alterations in blood pressure in the perioperative period, which, if uncontrolled, can result in end organ damage or dysfunction. Microvessels, significant contributors to blood pressure, both in the myocardium and peripheral skeletal muscle, have diminished responsiveness to major mediators of vascular tone, including thromboxane and serotonin after cardiopulmonary bypass. Responsiveness of these vessels to β-adrenergic stimulation, a major mediator of vascular tone, has not yet been studied...

BACKGROUND: It is important to understand the sites and the frequency of metastasis to perform less invasive treatments for superficial esophageal cancer, such as minimized or focused lymphadenectomy, endoscopic resection, and chemoradiotherapy. The distribution pattern and frequency of metastases from superficial esophageal cancer, however, have not been well elucidated. METHODS: In 342 patients with superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma who underwent esophagectomy, the sites and frequency of any metastasis, including lymph node metastasis at the time of esophagectomy, lymph node recurrence, and hematologic metastases were investigated...

BACKGROUND: As robotic surgery becomes more ubiquitous, determining clinical benefit is necessary to justify the cost and time investment required to become proficient. We hypothesized that robotic cholecystectomy would be associated with improved clinical outcomes but also increased cost as compared with standard laparoscopic cholecystectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patients undergoing robotic or laparoscopic cholecystectomy at a single academic hospital between 2007 and 2017 were identified using an institutional clinical data repository...

BACKGROUND: Certain treatments increase lymphedema risk in breast cancer survivors. The purpose of this study was to determine whether quality of life improved with preoperative teaching by a lymphedema expert. METHODS: Preoperative breast cancer patients were prospectively randomized into intervention group 1 or control group 2. Group 1 had a discussion with the lymphedema expert and at 6 months, in addition to the preoperative surgical discussion and literature given to all...
