PURPOSE: To evaluate the risk of pneumothorax in the percutaneous image-guided thermal ablation (IGTA) treatment of colorectal lung metastases (CRLM). METHODS: Data regarding patients with CRLM treated with IGTA from five medical institutions in China from 2016 to 2023 were reviewed retrospectively. Pneumothorax and non-pneumothorax were compared using the Student's t test、Chi-square test and Fisher's exact test. Univariate logistic regression analysis was conducted to identify potential risk factors, followed by multivariate logistic regression (MLR) analysis to evaluate the predictors of pneumothorax...

BACKGROUND: The pineal region tumors are challenging for neurosurgeons and can lead to secondary hydrocephalus. The advent of the exoscope has provided clinical interventions with high image quality and an ergonomic system for pineal region tumor operations. In this study, we describe the exoscopic approach used to facilitate the surgical resection of pineal region tumors and relieve hydrocephalus. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, we consecutively reviewed clinical and radiological data of 25 patients with pineal region lesions who underwent three-dimensional exoscopic tumor resection at a single center...

BACKGROUND: Lymph node (LN) dissection is a common procedure for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to ascertain disease severity and treatment options. However, murine studies have indicated that excising tumor-draining LNs diminished immunotherapy effectiveness, though its applicability to clinical patients remains uncertain. Hence, we aim to illustrate the immunological implications of LN dissection by analyzing the impact of dissected LN (DLN) count on immunotherapy efficacy, and to propose a novel "immunotherapy-driven" LN dissection strategy...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic low back pain (CLBP) can seriously impair the quality of life of patients and has a remarkable comorbidity with psychological symptoms, which, in turn, can further exacerbate the symptoms of CLBP. Psychological treatments are critical and nonnegligent for the management of CLBP, and thus, should attract sufficient attention. However, current evidence does not suggest the superiority and effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions in reducing psychological symptoms among patients with CLBP...

BACKGROUND: When a disorder causes absence of a healthy, full-size vagina, various neovaginal creation methods are available. Sometimes dilation or stretching of the vaginal cavity is sufficient, but intestinal or dermal flap tissue is generally required. However, different inherent tissue properties cause complications. Therefore, a lost body part should be replaced with a similar material. The use of organ-specific acellular vaginal tissue carries great potential, as its similar architecture and matrix composition make it suitable for vaginal regeneration...

BACKGROUND: Current clinical guidelines recommend the removal of at least 12 lymph nodes (LNs) in resectable colorectal cancer (CRC). With advancements in lymphadenectomy technologies, the number of retrieved lymph nodes (rLNs) has markedly increased. This study aimed to investigate the lowest number of rLNs in node-negative patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 1103 N0 and 208 N1a stage patients were enrolled in our cohort, while 8503 N0 and 1276 N1a patients from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results CRC database were included...

OBJECTIVE: To compare robot-assisted thyroidectomy (RT) and open thyroidectomy (OT) through a prospective cohort study focusing on the rate of postoperative hypoparathyroidism, efficacy, and quality of life (QoL). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Hypoparathyroidism is a frequent complication after thyroidectomy. Reducing the risk of hypoparathyroidism after total thyroidectomy is a crucial and difficult task for thyroid surgeons. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 306 patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma(PTC) into an RT group and OT group...

BACKGROUND: The eighth edition of nodal classification is defined only by anatomical location of metastatic lymph nodes and has limited prognostic discrimination power. We aimed to evaluate the prognostic significance and discriminatory capability of the number of metastatic lymph nodes (nN) in resected non-small cell lung cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with stage IA to IIIB resected non-small cell lung cancer between January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2013 were analyzed as Chinese cohort...

Identified risk factors for procedural complications are often limited to medical comorbidities. This study assesses the impact of functional status on resource utilization and organ system complications following bariatric surgery.

BACKGROUND: Notwithstanding that significant medical progress has been achieved in recent years, the optimal nutritional support method following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) remains uncertain. This study compared the safety and feasibility of early oral feeding (EOF) with nasojejunal early enteral nutrition (NJEEN) after PD. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted on 428 consecutive patients who underwent PD between August 2018 and December 2020. During the first study phase, the routine postoperative feeding strategy was NJEEN, later replaced by EOF during the second study phase...

BACKGROUND: Currently, there is no consensus on the most appropriate anastomotic site, anastomotic line, and direction for Billroth-II reconstruction with Braun anastomosis (B-II-B anastomosis) during totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (TLDG). Herein, we presented a novel anastomotic technique called R anastomosis for B-II-B anastomosis and compared it with the conventional B-II-B anastomosis technique to assess its feasibility, safety, and effectiveness. METHODS: Between March 2019 and September 2022 in our center, R anastomosis was performed on 123 patients undergoing TLDG for distal gastric cancer...

BACKGROUND: Radical prostatectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection for the treatment of high-risk localized prostate cancer (PCa) results in long-term benefits in selected patients. But insufficient sensitivity of conventional examinations which are pelvic MRI and bone scan, limits the diagnosis of bone and lymph node metastasis of PCa. This affects the surgical management strategy of a large number of patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether 18F-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography (PET)-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could improve the clinical detection of PCa metastases compared with the conventional pelvic MRI plus bone scan...

INTRODUCTION: Lymph-nodal involvement (N+) represents an adverse prognostic factor after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) for pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Preoperative diagnostic and staging modalities lack sensitivity for identifying N+. This study aimed to investigate preoperative CA19.9 in predicting the N+ stage in resectable-PDAC (R-PDAC). METHODS: Patients included in a multi-institutional retrospective database of PDs performed for R-PDAC from January 2000 to June 2021 were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Testis-sparing surgery (TSS) is a safe treatment for patients with benign testicular tumors. Presently, assessments for evaluating the suitability of TSS are poorly standardized, partially because testicular anatomical elements cannot be quantitatively described. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We developed a scoring method known as SAVE testis-sparing score based on four critical and accessible anatomical features of testicular tumor. The SAVE score ranges from 0 to 8 and is divided into four risk classes (low, medium, high, and extremely high) to evaluate the feasibility of TSS, wherein low risk indicates high feasibility and vice versa...
