REVIEW
Kevin P Charpentier
OBJECTIVE: To explore irreversible electroporation (IRE) as a novel, nonthermal form of tissue ablation using high-voltage electrical current to induce pores in the lipid bilayer of cells, resulting in cell death. DATA SOURCES: PubMed searches were performed using the keywords electroporation, IRE, and ablation. The abstracts for the 2012 meetings of both the American Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association and the Society for Interventional Radiology were also searched...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether being uninsured is associated with higher in-hospital postoperative mortality when undergoing surgery in the United States for a brain tumor. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, January 1, 1999, through December 31, 2008. SETTING: The Nationwide Inpatient Sample contains all inpatient records from a stratified sample of 20% of hospitals in 37 states. PATIENTS: A total of 28,581 patients, aged 18 to 65 years, who underwent craniotomy for a brain tumor...

MULTICENTER STUDY

HYPOTHESIS: When assessing the effect of operative approach on outcomes, it may be less relevant whether a transhiatal or an Ivor Lewis esophagectomy was performed and may be more important to focus on patient selection and the quality of the hospital performing the operation. DESIGN: Observational study. SETTING: Hospitals participating in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program. PATIENTS: Individuals undergoing esophagectomy were identified from January 1, 2005, to December 31, 2010...

OBJECTIVE To examine the long-term outcome of patients with early breast cancer with hematoxylin-eosin-negative sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) who did not undergo completion axillary lymph node dissection. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS Patients with invasive breast cancer surgically treated between May 1, 1995, and December 31, 2002, with SLN biopsy alone without axillary lymph node dissection who had hematoxylin-eosin-negative SLNs were identified. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Patient and tumor characteristics, adjuvant treatment, disease recurrence, and survival were recorded...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between oxygenation and short-term outcomes in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). DESIGN Logistic regression analysis was used to determine whether average high (>200 mm Hg) or low (<100 mm Hg) PaO2 levels within the first 24 hours of hospital admission correlated with patient outcomes relative to patients with average PaO2 levels between 100 and 200 mm Hg. SETTING Level 1 trauma center. PATIENTS We retrospectively reviewed 1547 consecutive patients with severe TBI who survived past 12 hours after hospital admission...

HYPOTHESIS Patients with mild gallstone pancreatitis may undergo an early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) within 48 hours of hospital admission without awaiting the normalization of pancreatic and liver enzyme levels. This may decrease the hospital stay without increasing morbidity or mortality and may minimize the unnecessary use of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. DESIGN A retrospective review. SETTING Two university-affiliated urban medical centers. PATIENTS A total of 303 patients with mild gallstone pancreatitis, of whom 117 underwent an early LC and 186 underwent a delayed LC...

HYPOTHESIS Although the risks for operating room distractions and interruptions (ORDIs) are acknowledged, most research on this topic is unrealistic, inconclusive, or methodologically unsound. We hypothesized that realistic ORDIs induce errors in a simulated surgical procedure performed by novice surgeons. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Eighteen second-year, third-year, and research-year surgical residents completed a within-subjects experiment on a laparoscopic virtual reality simulator. Based on 9 months of operating room observations, 4 distractions and 2 interruptions were designed and timed to occur during critical stages in simulated laparoscopic cholecystectomy...

HYPOTHESIS African American patients exhibit different intraoperative parathyroid hormone (IOPTH) profiles than non-African American patients. DESIGN Retrospective review. SETTING University medical center. PATIENTS Nine hundred ten patients who underwent parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism between July 2005 and August 2010. INTERVENTIONS All patients underwent preoperative imaging with ultrasonography and sestamibi; operative exploration; and IOPTH measurement at 2 points preexcision and 5 and 10 minutes postexcision...
