BACKGROUND: A prospective IDEAL stage 2a pilot study was carried out at a tertiary care center to evaluate the reliability of a homemade laparoscopic endotrainer, following the MISTEL and IDEAL framework guidelines. METHODS: The validated modified (MISTELS) score was used to test the reliability of a low-cost laparoscopic trainer with commonly found components built by surgeons. Basic household materials including a cellular phone (camera source), wifi (linking source) and freely available webcam apps were used for construction...

REVIEW
Danny Trieu, Houchen Gong, Dominic Benoit, Peter F M Choong
Current guidelines recommend the use of radiotherapy in the management of intermediate and high-grade soft-tissue sarcoma of the extremity and trunk wall. Its use in low-grade sarcoma is less clear. To date there have been no pooled data analyses regarding its role in this context. Its use is not without complications and therefore must be justified. We aim to assess the oncological impact of radiotherapy versus limb-sparing surgery alone in this subset of sarcoma. Medline, EMBASE and Cochrane's databases were searched from 1982 to present...

BACKGROUND: Surgeon-performed ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (SUS-FNA) reduces the time to diagnosis and treatment of head and neck pathology. Although it has been validated in the investigation of thyroid pathology, there is a paucity of evidence to support its use in lateral neck masses. This study aims to determine the accuracy and adequacy of SUS-FNA in the investigation of lateral neck masses. METHODS: A retrospective cohort analysis was performed of patients who underwent a SUS-FNA for lateral neck mass between June 2018 and October 2022 at a single institution...

INTRODUCTION: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs have become increasingly popular in the management of patients undergoing colorectal resection. However, the validity of ERAS in rural hospital settings without intensive care facilities has not been primarily evaluated. This study aimed to assess an ERAS protocol in a rural surgical department based in Invercargill New Zealand. METHODS: Ten years of prospectively collected data were analysed retrospectively from an ERAS database of all patients undergoing open, converted, or laparoscopic colorectal resections...

BACKGROUND: Necrotising fasciitis is a rare and fulminant soft tissue infection. Prompt surgical debridement of the involved soft tissues and necrotic fascia is its definitive treatment, with any delay associated with increased mortality. The LRINEC score is a scoring system initially designed to aid in early diagnosis of necrotising fasciitis to facilitate early surgical intervention. This score utilizes common biochemical tests to produce a score of 0-13, stratifying patients into risk categories...

REVIEW
William Harrison, Kale Munien, Devang Desai
BACKGROUND: Globally, robotic surgery (RS) has witnessed remarkable growth, yet Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) lack dedicated RS training programs, creating a workforce gap. This narrative review synthesises international research to explore trends and challenges in robotic education. METHODS: We conducted a comprehensive literature review, searching PubMed, Google Scholar, and MEDLINE using keywords like 'robotic surgery', 'surgical education', 'robotic surgery training', and 'robotic surgery curriculum'...

BACKGROUND: Double barrelled uro-colostomy (DBUC) is an alternative to traditional ileal conduit (IC) and separate colostomy in patients requiring simultaneous urinary and faecal diversion for reconstruction in pelvic exenteration surgery (PES). METHODS: This cohort study evaluated short- and long-term morbidity and mortality associated with DBUC formation in 20 consecutive adult patients undergoing PES in an Australian Complex Pelvic Surgical Unit. Data were obtained from a prospective database...

BACKGROUND: Caudate lobectomy (CLB) remains the most effective treatment for caudate lobe hepatocellular carcinoma (CL-HCC). However, there is controversy regarding the survival after CLB. This meta-analysis aims to investigate the survival outcomes following CLB for the treatment of CL-HCC. METHODS: In line with PRISMA and MOOSE guidelines, a search for all eligible studies was performed. The pooled estimates of survival rates and hazard ratios (HRs) with their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated using fixed- or random-effects models...

BACKGROUND: Published research suggests Indigenous peoples are less likely to receive analgesia in acute pain settings however there is limited data on the indigenous New Zealand Māori population. The aim of this exploratory pilot study was to compare management between Māori and non-Māori for acute fracture pain in a regional trauma centre. METHODS: A retrospective review was undertaken for 120 patients with isolated tibial shaft fractures presenting at a tertiary level trauma center between 2015 and 2020...

BACKGROUNDS: In the repair of plantar foot defects, it is important that the reconstructed area is compatible with surrounding tissue while weight-bearing ability continues. In our study, we present long-term results of plantar foot reconstruction with super-thin ALT flaps in patients that required reconstruction with free tissue transfer. METHODS: We evaluated 11 patients with plantar foot defects that underwent reconstruction with a super-thin ALT flap. Patients were evaluated for postoperative ulceration, ability to wear normal shoes, time to return to work/school, LEFS score and satisfaction with aesthetic results...

BACKGROUND: Crohn's disease patients may require multiple surgeries during their lifetime. Because operative reports are not standardized, information relevant to future management may not be documented. Synoptic reports used in other fields such as histopathology have proven to be effective and allow consistent documentation of results. The aim of this study was to retrospectively review the completeness of the operative reports for ileocolic Crohn's resections (ICR) and to propose a synoptic report...

BACKGROUND: Surgical training programs within Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand have become more competitive. Applicants are required to build a strong application over curriculum vitae (CV), references and interview. The building of the CV often comes at significant financial and time cost with challenges.

BACKGROUND: Surgeons vary in their approach to preventing pain post rubber band ligation (RBL) of haemorrhoids, with pudendal nerve blocks (PNB) being one analgesic strategy. No data exists on how commonly PNBs are used in RBL in Australia, and whether use varies by year and patient and hospital characteristics. METHODS: Aggregate data from the National Hospital Morbidity Database was obtained for all admissions for RBL in Australia from 2012 to 2021, with and without a PNB, overall and in relation to sex, age group, hospital remoteness, hospital sector, and year of procedure...

BACKGROUND: While endoscopic step-up approach with delayed drainage (more than 28 days from diagnosis) was shown to produce the best outcomes in the treatment of pancreatic walled-off necrosis (WON), we assessed our single centre experience of early versus delayed endoscopic drainage of pancreatic necrotic collections. METHODS: Patients who underwent endoscopic drainage of pancreatic necrotic collections between 2011 and 2022 under Monash Health were identified...

BACKGROUND: Somatic Symptom Disorder is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes the experience of physical symptoms and associated distress, that is disproportionate to recognized organic pathology. Somatic symptom severity (SSS) may be associated with some surgical diagnoses; particularly the complex pain associated with pancreatitis, or the diagnostic ambiguity of undifferentiated abdominal pain (UAP). We aimed to estimate the prevalence of SSS in different diagnostic groups in surgical inpatients with abdominal pain; and to estimate the magnitude and direction of any association of SSS, anxiety and depression...
