Intensive investigation in management of Hodgkin's disease. (1/974)

Ninety-eight patients with clinically localised Hodgkin's disease underwent laparotomy and splenectomy to determine the extent of microscopic spread. In 68 patients the procedure was carried out for untreated disease apparently confined above the diaphragm. Abdominal disease cannot be confidently excluded on the basis of non-invasive investigation at presentation. Clinical assessment of splenic disease was unreliable unless gross splenomegaly was present. Pedal lymphography was accurate in assessing para-aortic and iliac disease but of no value in assessing other intra-abdominal lymph node involvement, including that of the mesenteric lymph node. Trephine bone marrow biopsy findings were normal in all patients before surgery, and only one patient was found to have diseased bone marrow by Stryker-saw biopsy at operation. Liver disease was identified at operation in nine patients, some of whom were asymptomatic with clinically undetectable splenic and nodal disease. Detailed clinical staging failed to detect disease in one-third of patients who underwent laparotomy. These studies show that if radiotherapy is to remain the treatment of choice for disease truly localised to lymph nodes a detailed staging procedure, including laparotomy and splenectomy, remains essential. The value of this potentially curative treatment is considerably diminished in the patient who has been inadequately staged.  (+info)

Serum sErbB1 and epidermal growth factor levels as tumor biomarkers in women with stage III or IV epithelial ovarian cancer. (2/974)

Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) has a high mortality rate, which is due primarily to the fact that early clinical symptoms are vague and nonspecific; hence, this disease often goes undetected and untreated until in its advanced stages. Sensitive and reliable methods for detecting earlier stages of EOC are, therefore, urgently needed. Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is a ligand for EGF receptor (ErbB1); this receptor is the product of the c-erbB1 proto-oncogene. ErbB1 overexpression is common in human ovarian carcinoma-derived cell lines and tumors, in which overexpression is thought to play a critical role in tumor etiology and progression. Furthermore, ErbB1 overexpression is associated with disease recurrence and decreased patient survival. Recently, we have developed an acridinium-linked immunosorbent assay that detects a approximately 110-kDa soluble analogue of ErbB1, ie., sErbB1, in serum samples from healthy men and women (A. T. Baron, et al., J. Immunol. Methods, 219: 23-43, 1998). Here, we demonstrate that serum p110 sErbB1 levels are significantly lower in EOC patients with stage III or IV disease prior to (P < 0.0001) and shortly after (P < 0.0001) cytoreductive staging laparotomy than in healthy women of similar ages, whereas EGF levels are significantly higher than those of age-matched healthy women only in serum samples collected shortly after tumor debulking surgery (P < 0.0001). We observe that the preoperative serum sErbB1 concentration range of advanced stage EOC patients barely overlaps with the serum sErbB1 concentration range of healthy women. In addition, we show that serum sErbB1 and EGF levels changed temporally for some EOC patients who were surgically debulked of tumor and who provided a second serum sample during the course of combination chemotherapy. Finally, we observe a significant positive association between sErbB1 and EGF levels only in serum samples of EOC patients collected prior to cytoreductive surgery (correlation coefficient = 0.61968; P = 0.0027). These data suggest that epithelial ovarian tumors concomitantly affect serum sErbB1 and EGF levels. In conclusion, these data indicate that serum sErbB1 and EGF (postoperative only) levels are significantly different between EOC patients and healthy women and that altered and/or changing serum sErbB1 and EGF levels may provide important diagnostic and/or prognostic information useful for the management of patients with EOC.  (+info)

Management and outcome of patients undergoing surgery after acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage. Steering Group for the National Audit of Acute Upper Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage. (3/974)

Most patients with acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage are managed conservatively or with endoscopic intervention but some ultimately require surgery to arrest the haemorrhage. We have conducted a population-based multicentre prospective observational study of management and outcomes. This paper concerns the subgroup of 307 patients who had an operation because of continued or recurrent haemorrhage or high risk of further bleeding. The principal diagnostic group was those with peptic ulcer. Of 2071 patients with peptic ulcer presenting with acute haemorrhage, 251 (12%) had an operative intervention with a mortality of 24%. In the non-operative group mortality was 10%. The operative intervention rate increased with risk score, ranging from 0% in the lowest risk categories to 38% in the highest. Much of the discrepancy between operative and non-operative mortality was explainable by case mix; however, for high-risk cases mortality was significantly higher in the operated group. In 78% of patients who underwent an operation for bleeding peptic ulcer there had been no previous attempt at endoscopic haemostasis. For patients admitted to surgical units, the operative intervention rate was about four times higher than for those admitted under medical teams. In patients with acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage operative intervention is infrequent and largely confined to the highest-risk patients. The continuing high mortality in surgically treated patients is therefore to be expected. The reasons for the low use of endoscopic treatment before surgery are not revealed by this study, but wider use of such treatments might further reduce the operative intervention rate. Physicians and surgeons have not yet reached consensus on who needs surgery and when.  (+info)

Endogenous nitric oxide in the maintenance of rat microvascular integrity against widespread plasma leakage following abdominal laparotomy. (4/974)

1. The role of nitric oxide (NO) in the maintenance of microvascular integrity during minor surgical manipulation has been evaluated in the rat. 2. The NO synthase inhibitors, NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME, 5 mg kg(-1), s.c.) and N(G)-monomethyl-L-arginine (L-NMMA, 50 mg kg(-1), s.c.) had no effect on microvascular leakage of radiolabelled albumin over 1 h in the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, colon, lung and kidney in the un-operated conscious or pentobarbitone-anaesthetized rat. 3. In contrast, in anaesthetized rats with a midline abdominal laparotomy (5 cm), L-NAME (1-5 mg kg(-1), s.c.) or L-NMMA (12.5-50 mg kg(-1), s.c.) dose-dependently increased gastrointestinal, renal and pulmonary vascular leakage, effects reversed by L-arginine pretreatment (300 mg kg(-1), s.c., 15 min). These actions were not observed in anaesthetized rats that had only received a midline abdominal skin incision (5 cm). 4. Pretreatment with a rabbit anti-rat neutrophil serum (0.4 ml kg(-1), i.p.), 4 h before laparotomy, abolished the plasma leakage induced by L-NAME in all the organs investigated. 5. These results indicate that the following abdominal laparotomy, inhibition of constitutive NO synthase provokes vascular leakage in the general microcirculation, by a process that may involve neutrophils. Such effects could thus confound studies on the microvascular actions of NO synthase inhibitors using acute surgically prepared in vivo models. The findings thus suggest that constitutively-formed NO has a crucial role in the maintenance of acute microvascular integrity following abdominal surgical intervention.  (+info)

The forgotten child--a case of heterotopic, intra-abdominal and intrauterine pregnancy carried to term. (5/974)

Heterotopic pregnancies are estimated to be less frequent than one in 30,000 if no assisted reproduction technologies are performed. Here we report a case which occurred in Tanzania. An abdominal pregnancy at term was first misdiagnosed as an ovarian tumour and diagnosed on the first post-partum day of the intrauterine fetus, which was delivered spontaneously. The abdominal pregnancy was then treated by laparotomy and removal of the placenta. The fetus was alive and healthy. The follow-up of the twins was normal.  (+info)

Serum concentrations of tramadol enantiomers during patient-controlled analgesia. (7/974)

AIMS: Tramadol, a centrally acting analgesic, is used as a racemate containing 50% of a (+)- and 50% of a (-)-enantiomer. This paper presents the pharmacokinetic results of postoperative patient-controlled analgesia using (+)-tramadol, (-)-tramadol or the racemate. METHODS: Ninety-eight patients recovering from major gynaecological surgery were treated in a randomised, double-blind study with (+)-tramadol, (-)-tramadol or the racemate. Following an i.v. bolus up to a maximum of 200 mg, patient-controlled analgesia with demand doses of 20 mg was made available for 24 h. Prior to each demand, the serum concentrations of the enantiomers of tramadol and its metabolite M1 were measured in 92 patients. RESULTS: The mean concentrations of tramadol during the postsurgery phase were 470+/-323 ng ml-1, 590+/-410 ng ml-1 and 771+/-451 ng ml-1 in the (+)-, racemate- and (-)-group, respectively ((+) vs (-), P<0.05); the mean concentrations of the metabolite M1 were 57+/-18 ng ml-1, 84+/-34 ng ml-1 and 96+/-41 ng ml-1 in the (+)-, racemate- and (-)-group, respectively ((+) vs (-) and (+) vs racemate, P<0.05). The mean concentrations of (+)-tramadol and (+)-M1 were lower in the racemate- than in the (+)-group (P<0.05), those of (-)-tramadol and (-)-M1 were lower in the racemate than in the (-)-group (P<0.05). In the racemate group, the mean serum concentrations of (+)-tramadol were higher than those of (-)-tramadol (P<0.05), whereas the mean serum concentrations of (-)-M1 were higher than those of (+)-M1 (P<0. 05). CONCLUSIONS: The therapeutic serum concentration of tramadol and M1 showed a great variability. The lowest mean concentrations were measured in the (+)-group and the highest in (-)-group. This is in agreement with the clinical finding that (+)-tramadol is a more potent analgesic than (-)-tramadol.  (+info)

Resection-line involvement in gastric cancer patients undergoing curative resections: implications for clinical management. (8/974)

BACKGROUND: Resection-line involvement has been suggested as an important prognostic factor for gastric cancer. METHODS: The relationship between resection-line involvement and outcome was examined in patients undergoing potentially curative resection for gastric cancer. RESULTS: Tumor positive resection-lines were seen in 22 of the 259 evaluable patients (8.4%). Resection-line involvement was associated with tumor location (P = 0.01) and tumor differentiation (P = 0.02). Positive margins were associated with worse survival. However, if both groups of patients are stratified according to lymph node metastases, resection-line involvement determined a shorter survival only in patients with N0 stage disease. CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest, in the case of positive margins, that re-laparatomy should be considered only for patients with N0 stage disease, while patients with metastatic lymph nodes should be watched closely without the need for a more aggressive surgical approach.  (+info)

Influence of secondary cytoreduction at the time of second-look laparotomy on the survival of patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma Academic Article Article ...
A laparotomy is a surgical procedure involving a large incision through the abdominal wall to gain access into the abdominal cavity. It is also known as a celiotomy. The first successful laparotomy was performed without anesthesia by Ephraim McDowell in 1809 in Danville, Kentucky. The term arises from the Greek word lapara, meaning flank, and the suffix -tomy arising from the Greek word τομή meaning a (surgical) cut. In diagnostic laparotomy (most often referred to as an exploratory laparotomy and abbreviated ex-lap), the nature of the disease is unknown, and laparotomy is deemed the best way to identify the cause. In therapeutic laparotomy, a cause has been identified (e.g. colon cancer) and the operation is required for its therapy. Usually, only exploratory laparotomy is considered a stand-alone surgical operation. When a specific operation is already planned, laparotomy is considered merely the first step of the procedure. Depending on incision placement, laparotomy may give ...

Emergency laparotomy is the commonest emergency surgical procedure in most hospitals and includes over 400 diverse surgical procedures. Despite the evolution of medicine and surgical practices, the mortality in patients needing emergency laparotomy remains abnormally high. Although surgical risk assessment first started with the ASA Physical Status score in 1941, efforts to find an ideal scoring system that accurately estimates the risk of mortality, continues till today. While many scoring systems have been developed, no single scoring system has been validated across multiple centers and geographical locations. While some scoring systems can predict the risk merely based upon preoperative findings and parameters, some rely on intra-operative assessment and histopathology reports to accurately stratify the risk of mortality. Although most scoring systems can potentially be used to compare risk-adjusted mortality across hospitals and amongst surgeons, only those which are based on preoperative ...
A woman in her 20s reported cramping and rectal bleeding to her ObGyn. Pelvic and rectal examinations were normal. Her family physicians exam and a gastroenterologists rectal exam and colonoscopy were all normal. A radiologist (Dr. A) identified a 3-cm by 6-cm mass on transvaginal ultrasonography. A computed tomography (CT) scan read by another radiologist (Dr. B) confirmed the mass. After receiving the radiologists reports, the ObGyn told the patient that she had a small tumor that needed immediate removal. No mass was found during exploratory laparotomy. Three years postsurgery, after trying to conceive, the patient underwent exploratory laparoscopy to evaluate her fallopian tubes. A surgeon found significant pelvic adhesions occluding the left fallopian tube. He lysed the adhesions and resected the left fallopian tube. PATIENTS CLAIM: The patient sued the ObGyn and both radiologists, alleging that the unnecessary surgeries resulted in reduced fertility. Postoperatively, the ObGyn told the ...
Laparotomy or exploratory laparotomy is a diagnostic procedure used to assess diseases in the abdomen. Laparotomy is performed by Mr Michael Bickford in Melbourne.
This medical animation depicts an open laparotomy to remove purulent, infected material from the abdominal cavity with a follow up laparoscopy causing the spread of infection into the body tissues.
To the editor: The article by R. E. Johnson, Is Staging Laparotomy Routinely Indicated in Hodgkins Disease? (Ann Intern Med 75:459-462, 1971), deserves comment. I shall address myself only to the three conclusions of the article.. 1. The surgical findings have not yet been shown adequately reliable to determine the need for prophylactic abdominal irradiation. . . . This conclusion is not based on Johnsons experience with laparotomy, since his group has not used this procedure routinely. If the conclusion is based on the extension rate in his group of patients not receiving prophylactic irradiation, it reflects only on the ...
Abstract INTRODUCTION: Damage control surgery (DCS) is an established option for managing severely injured trauma patients. However, its role in the management of similar patients in the developing world is debatable. The purpose of this study is to describe characteristics and outcomes of patients undergoing DCS. METHODS: All trauma patients requiring laparotomies from 1996 to 2011 at a tertiary care hospital in South Asia were reviewed. DCS was defined in a patient who underwent a truncated laparotomy where the fascia was primarily left open, with the intention of physiological optimization in the Intensive Care Unit, followed by definitive surgery. The primary outcome was in-hospital mortality. Multivariate logistic regression was used to determine the independent predictors of mortality after adjustment for potential confounders. RESULTS: Of 258 patients, 47 underwent DCS. 40% patients were transferred from other hospitals. The time between injury and operation was 152 minutes (IQR: 90-330). Intra

If you have a laparotomy for trauma, you will likely be in the hospital for 3-7 days, or more, to recover, depending on the degree of injuries sustained, as well as other injuries that you will be recovering from. Your diet will be advanced slowly as your doctor feels that you can tolerate eating. You can expect to be about 80% recovered at about 8 weeks after surgery, but complete healing will take 6-12 months. Ask your doctor about your activity restrictions after surgery. You may have a lifting restriction for 6-8 weeks after open surgery.. ...

Diabetics undergoing surgery suffer an increased risk of peri-operative complications. Higher rate of infection, delayed wound healing, ischemic complications, autonomic neuropathy, difficulties in controlling glycemic levels and longer hospital stay burden the outcome of surgery. Yet a detailed study to look for the incidence of complications, its relation to glycemic levels and type of surgery was lacking especially in an Indian setup. In this study we have tried to access the effect of hyperglycaemia on post-operative complications of laparotomies in diabetic patients. A comparison with non-diabetic patients regarding the complications was drawn. Aims: To study the effect of hyperglycaemia on post-operative complications of laparotomies in diabetic patients, and correlate it with glycemic control. Methods and Material: All patients undergoing laparotomies were studied. A detailed history and laboratory data were obtained at presentation. Patients were followed through their hospital stay for ...
The case of a preterm infant weighing 1120 g who successfully received recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) without complication for control of a life-threatening bleeding event resulting from a ruptured umbilical artery is reported. After performing an exploratory laparotomy at 27 hours of age, hemorrhage from the surgical wound and various sites persisted. By 63 hours of age, the infant had received a total of 192 mL (171 mL/kg) of packed red blood cells, 115 mL (103 mL/kg) of fresh frozen plasma, 8 mL of cryoprecipitate, and 75 mL (67 mL/kg) of platelet concentrate without stabilization. Hemorrhage ceased after 2 doses of 40 μg/kg/dose recombinant activated factor VII given at 63 and 70 hours of age, with subsequent stabilization of the hematocrit and without need for additional transfusion therapy. ...

For PID, laparotomy is not done as often as laparoscopy, which requires special equipment and training. But laparotomy is done if a hospital is not equipped for laparoscopy. It may also be done if another problem is suspected, such as a ruptured appendix.. The hospital or surgery center may send you instructions on how to get ready for your surgery. Or a nurse may call you with instructions before your surgery.. Right after surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area. While you are there, nurses will care for and observe you. You most likely will stay in the recovery area for 1 to 4 hours. Then you will be moved to a hospital room. Your nurse will give you any special instructions from your doctor and will explain information to help you during your recovery.. ...
This is a paper read at The Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting of The Association of Surgeons and Physicians of Malta in Jan. 1973. The problems involved in the diagnosis of fever of uncertain or unknown origin are well known. In the majority of these patients, the diagnosis becomes established after a full investigation. There are, however, cases where the most careful investigation fails to discover the cause even though the fever may have lasted months. It is indeed some of these patients who may benefit by a laparotomy not only because a definite diagnosis may result but also because a definitive cure becomes possible. Two case studies that illustrate this fact are described, whereby they show that laparotomy may at the very least provide definite diagnosis of an intra-abdominal disorder allowing rational management of the patient and may also in the best of cases cure such disorder ...
Background The Physiological and Operative Severity Score for enUmeration of Morbidity and Mortality (POSSUM) and its Portsmouth modification (P-POSSUM) were developed for comparative audit in surgical patients. This study evaluated applicability of these systems in estimating mortality and morbidity risks in a cohort of patients undergoing laparotomy at the national referral hospital in Nairobi, Kenya. Methods Data of 166 patients undergoing laparotomy was subjected to POSSUM and P-POSSUM scoring systems and analyzed using linear and exponential methods. The discrimination power of POSSUM and P-POSSUM as predictors of surgical outcome was measured using the receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curve. Results The overall observed to expected (O:E) ratio using linear analysis was 0.29:1 (POSSUM) and 0.67:1 (P-POSSUM) while exponential analysis gave an O:E of 0.2:1 (POSSUM) and 0.4:1 (P-POSSUM). The predicted morbidity using POSSUM was 1.09:1 (linear analysis) and 1:1 (exponential analysis). ...
2902 Rationale: Therapeutic studies in small animal models are usually limited by the lack of clinical correlation with the human couterparts. The objective of this study was to better characterize the dog prostate cancer (DPC-1) cell line, originally derived from a spontaneous occuring dog prostatic adenocarcinoma. Methods: In vitro analyses consisted of culture of DPC-1 cells and assessment of proteins of interest including sex steroid receptors by immunofluorescence and Western blotting. Steroid receptors were also studied by ligand (tritiated) binding assay. Growth was monitored by MTT assays. In vivo, mice were injected subcutaneously (SC) with DPC-1 and PC3 cells, and formation of xenografts was followed over time. In large animals, six Mongrel male dogs weighting 25 to 35 kg were immunosupressed with oral cyclosporine. A baseline assessment with digital rectal examination and transabdominal ultrasound (TAUS) was done to exclude previous prostatic abnormalities. A mini-laparotomy was ...

We hypothesize that the natural af ter in acute wound healing prevents the establishment of adequate tensile strength within laparotomy wounds to off-set the loads placed across it by recovering surgical patients. 23 An elevated level of neutrophil membrane PR3 expression is associated with an increased risk for relapse.
Introduction: Dealing with patients with multiple laparotomies is always a difficult task due to the fear of injuring the bowel or internal organs. In this study we found out a new technique (Vikas technique) in order to minimise injuries during laparotomy using pneumo peritoneum in open method. This is one of the novel technique, where in we create pneumo peritoneum and proceed with laparotomy in order to prevent inadvertent injury to the internal organs while gaining access into the abdomen in patients with previous multiple laparotomies. Methods and materials: This study includes 15 patients to undergo re-relaparotomy for various reasons attending to surgical oncology department in Yashoda Hospitals Secunderabad, during a period of 9 months. Results: By this technique, there was no case with injury to the bowel or any other abdominal organ. Not even a single patient had complications related to creation of pneumo peritoneum. Conclusions: This is one of the novel technique were in many complications

Peritoneal encapsulation (PE) is a rare condition that has been described interchangeably with sclerosing encapsulated peritonitis as well as abdominal cocoon. We report an otherwise well 38-year-old man who presented with two episodes of intestinal obstruction about two months apart. Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen showed characteristic features of the PE syndrome. Exploratory laparotomy was performed and small bowel was freed of adhesions and the encapsulation. Post-operative recovery was uneventful. PE is an extremely rare congenital condition in which there is abnormal return of the midgut loop to the abdominal cavity in the early stages of development. The small intestine is thus covered by the original dorsal mesentery, forming the characteristic accessory peritoneal sac. Management of cases is difficult as CT findings may not be characteristic and may only be diagnosed at laparotomy.. Keywords: intestinal obstruction, peritoneal encapsulation syndrome, ...

Today a dilatation of the aorta in the stomach (aortic aneurysm) is treated by means of inserting a stent with a catheter from the groin (without an abdominal incision) or by means of open surgery (with an abdominal incision). Both procedures are carried out on a regular basis at the Gefäßzentrum Mannheim-Speyer. Constrictions or blockages in the leg arteries can be stretched under a local anaesthetic if the occurrence is uncomplicated. If this is not possible the blockages are treated via a bypass produced from the patients own vein or synthetic replacement material. In many cases the catheter treatment in the operating theatre is combined with a vascular surgical intervention (hybrid intervention). The Gefäßzentrum Mannheim-Speyer is the leading clinic in Germany with regard to this procedure.. Treatment of Problematic ...

Surgery - a laparotomy is performed. This will only be performed after a reasonable urine output has been attained. This will try to repair the perforation, and the contents of the peritoneal cavity will be washed out. The surgery often has two purposes in that it will sort out the underlying problem as well as treat the peritonitis. Some surgeons like to use an antibiotic wash, however there is no evidence to suggest this is more effective that just using saline solution ...

Civilian abdominal gunshot wounds in Lagos.: This prospective study of 78 patients who sustained abdominal gunshot wounds was performed to evaluate the pattern
Laparoscopic surgery has greatly improved surgical outcome in many areas of abdominal surgery. But many concerns of safety have limited its application in abdominal trauma. We hypothesized that laparoscopy could be safe and efficacious in treatment of patients with abdominal trauma, and reduce the laparotomy related complications (i.e. wound infection, pain, or long hospital stay) as avoiding unnecessary laparotomy. From January 2006 to August 2012, a total of 111 patients underwent emergent surgical exploration (laparoscopic, 41; open laparotomy, 70) in Andong General Hospital. Of the 41 patients subjected to laparoscopy, 30 patients had suffered blunt trauma, the remaining 11 patients had sustained penetrating trauma. 31 patients were treated exclusively by laparoscopy and 10 patients underwent laparoscopy-assisted surgery. The conversion rate was 18%. Major complication was none without postoperative mortality. Comparing laparoscopic surgery with open laparotomy, lesser wound infection, early gas
Most of treatments have been performed laparotomy, but the rapid advances in laparoscopic operative and laboratory techniques and instrument allowed to apply laparoscopic surgery to this disease. We have reviewed 342 cases of ectopic pregnancy from march 1994 to march 2001.The cornual pregnancies were 21 case (6.1%), and the laparoscopic management in 11 cases. The mean gestational age at the time of laparoscopic surgery was 9.1 1.2 (n=11) weeks, and laparotomy was 9.4 1.3 (n=10) weeks. There were no significant difference. The mean operation time of laparoscopic surgery was 72.8 25.5minutes, and laparotomy was 68.3 24.3minutes. The mean hospital days of laparoscopic surgery were 4.9 2.4days, and laparotomy were 6.6 2.3days. In conclusion, laparoscopic surgery can be used as effective and safe as laparotomy for cornual pregnancy ...

Background. In acute respiratory distress syndrome or pneumonia, a procoagulant shift is observed in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF). The effect of a primarily extrapulmonary infection on coagulation and fibrinolysis in the pulmonary compartment is unclear. Methods. In 35 patients, 87 bronchoalveolar lavages were performed on the day of operation for secondary peritonitis (day 0) and on days 2 and 3 after surgery. Two noninfectious control groups were included: subjects undergoing bronchoalveolar lavage after elective surgery (n = 8) and those undergoing long-term mechanical ventilation (n = 10). Results. In BALF from patients with peritonitis, a tissue factor (TF)/factor VIIaâ€mediated activation of coagulation was shown (high levels of thrombin-antithrombin complexes). Levels of fibrinolysis activators decreased rapidly after day 0, whereas levels of inhibitors increased. The net effect was reduced fibrinolysis (plasminogen activator activity). The sequential comparison of plasma ...

A collapsible disposable retainer device for insertion beneath an abdominal incision for temporarily retaining viscera inside the abdominal cavity of a patient during closure of an abdominal incision following surgery. The retractor is in the form of a flat oval-shaped piece of transparent flexible plastic or rubber material which has a peripheral tubular bladder inflatable with air or other gas from an inflation device to impart rigidity to the structure during use. Following use the bladder is emptied of gas and the retractor collapsed, permitting its ready withdrawal from a small opening left in the abdominal incision.

Local microbial tolerance was investigated in a murine model of peritonitis. Peritoneal bacterial burden and inflammatory cytokine concentrations were determined at different times, within 48h after infection. Peritoneal macrophages were harvested from naïve mice or from mice 48h after infection and underwent ex vivo stimulation with different concentrations of Klebsiella. Cytokine secretion was determined in the supernatants. Peritoneal bacteria concentrations, remained relatively steady between 24h (median: 5.04 log CFU) and 48h (median: 5.19 log CFU) after infection. Peritoneal cytokine concentrations peaked early but were already diminished at 48h after infection, despite persistent high bacteria levels. Macrophages, harvested from naïve mice responded vigorously to ex vivo stimulation with 10(5) CFU and 2 x 10(8) CFU Klebsiella. Cells harvested from animals 48h after infection, were unresponsive to an ex vivo stimulation with 10(5) CFU Klebsiella, but fully responded to 10(8) CFU. ...

Traumatic diaphragmatic injury (DI) is a unique clinical entity that is usually occult and can easily be missed. Their delayed presentation can be due to the delayed rupture of the diaphragm or delayed detection of diaphragmatic rupture, making the accurate diagnosis of DI challenging to the trauma surgeons. An emergency laparotomy and thorough exploration followed by the repair of the defect is the gold standard for the management of these cases. We report a case of blunt DI in an elderly gentleman and present a comprehensive overview for the management of traumatic injuries of the diaphragm.
