Reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileoanal pouches. (1/6161)

OBJECTIVE: A retrospective review was performed to determine the results after surgical reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileal pouch-anal procedures for ulcerative colitis and familial colonic polyposis at a university medical center. METHODS: During the 20-year period from 1978 to 1998, 601 patients underwent colectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis, familial colonic polyposis, or Hirschsprung's disease. A J pouch was used for 351 patients, a lateral pouch for 221, an S pouch for 6, and a straight pull-through for 23. Acute complications after pouch construction have been detailed in previous publications and are not included in this study. Chronic pouch stasis with diarrhea, frequency, urgency, and soiling gradually became more severe in 164 patients (27.3%), associated with pouch enlargement, an elongated efferent limb, and obstruction to pouch outflow, largely related to the pouch configuration used during the authors' early clinical experience. These patients were sufficiently symptomatic to be considered for reconstruction (mean 68 months after IPAA). Transanal resection of an elongated IPAA spout was performed on 58 patients; abdominoperineal mobilization of the pouch with resection and tapering of the lower end (AP reconstruction) and ileoanal anastomosis on 83; pouch removal and new pouch construction on 7; and conversion of a straight pull-through to a pouch on 16. RESULTS: Good long-term results (mean 7.7 years) with improvement in symptoms occurred in 98% of transanal resections, 91.5% of AP reconstructions, 86% of new pouch constructions, and 100% of conversions of a straight pull-through to a pouch. The average number of bowel movements per 24 hours at 6 months was 4.8. Complications occurred in 11.6% of reconstructed patients. Five of the 164 patients (3.1%) required eventual pouch removal and permanent ileostomy. The high rate of pouch revision in this series of patients undergoing IPAA is due to a policy of aggressive correction when patients do not experience an optimal functional result, or have a progressive worsening of their status. CONCLUSIONS: Although occasionally a major undertaking, reconstruction of ileoanal pouches with progressive dysfunction due to large size or a long efferent limb has resulted in marked improvement in intestinal function in >93% of patients and has reduced the need for late pouch removal.  (+info)

A prospective, randomized trial of tacrolimus/prednisone versus tacrolimus/prednisone/mycophenolate mofetil in renal transplant recipients. (2/6161)

BACKGROUND: Between September 20, 1995 and September 20, 1997, 208 adult patients undergoing renal transplantation were randomized to receive tacrolimus/prednisone (n=106) or tacrolimus/prednisone/mycophenolate mofetil (n=102), with the goal of reducing the incidence of rejection. METHODS: The mean recipient age was 50.7+/-13.7 years. Sixty-three (30.3%) patients were 60 years of age or older at the time of transplantation. The mean donor age was 34.5+/-21.7 years. The mean cold ischemia time was 30.5+/-9.2 hr. The mean follow-up is 15+/-7 months. RESULTS: The overall 1-year actuarial patient survival was 94%; the overall 1-year actuarial graft survival was 87%. When the patient and graft survival data were stratified to recipients under the age of 60 who did not have delayed graft function, the overall 1-year actuarial patient survival was 97%, and the corresponding 1-year actuarial graft survival was 93%. There were no differences between the two groups. The overall incidence of rejection was 36%; in the double-therapy group, it was 44%, whereas in the triple therapy group, it was 27% (P=0.014). The mean serum creatinine was 1.6+/-0.8 mg/dl. A total of 36% of the successfully transplanted patients were taken off prednisone; 32% of the patients were taken off antihypertensive medications. The incidence of delayed graft function was 21%, the incidence of cytomegalovirus was 12.5%, and the initial and final incidences of posttransplant insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus were 7.0% and 2.9%; again, there was no difference between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: This trial suggests that the combination of tacrolimus, steroids, and mycophenolate mofetil is associated with excellent patient and graft survival and a lower incidence of rejection than the combination of tacrolimus and steroids.  (+info)

Is revision as good as primary hip replacement? A comparison of quality of life. (3/6161)

Primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most effective ways of improving quality of life (QoL). We have compared the improvement in QoL in 62 patients who had a cemented revision of a THA with that of 62 primary replacements. One year after operation the median QoL score had been significantly improved in both groups; from 0.870 to 0.990 in the primary group (p < 0.0001) and from 0.870 to 0.980 in the revised group (p < 0.0001). There was no significant difference in the improvement in scores between the groups (p = 0.29). When reviewed after four years there was no difference in the pain score for either group (p = 0.89), but that for function had deteriorated significantly. This was associated with revision surgery (p = 0.018) and a low preoperative QoL score (p = 0.004). We conclude that both primary and revision operations give a significant improvement in the QoL but function after revision may be less durable than after a primary arthroplasty.  (+info)

Analysis of 118 second-generation metal-on-metal retrieved hip implants. (4/6161)

Osteolysis is due to particulate wear debris and is responsible for the long-term failure of total hip replacements. It has stimulated the development of alternative joint surfaces such as metal-on-metal or ceramic-on-ceramic implants. Since 1988 the second-generation metal-on-metal implant Metasul has been used in over 60 000 hips. Analysis of 118 retrieved specimens of the head or cup showed rates of wear of approximately 25 microm for the whole articulation per year in the first year, decreasing to about 5 microm per year after the third. Metal surfaces have a 'self-polishing' capacity. Scratches are worn out by further joint movement. Volumetric wear was decreased some 60-fold compared with that of metal-on-polyethylene implants, suggesting that second-generation metal-on-metal prostheses may considerably reduce osteolysis.  (+info)

Subsidence of a non-polished stem in revisions of the hip using impaction allograft. Evaluation with radiostereometry and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. (5/6161)

We revised 24 consecutive hips with loosening of the femoral stem using impaction allograft and a cemented stem with an unpolished proximal surface. Repeated radiostereometric examinations for up to two years showed a slow rate of subsidence with a mean of 0.32 mm (-2.0 to +0.31). Fifteen cases followed for a further year showed the same mean subsidence after three years, indicating stabilisation. A tendency to retroversion of the stems was noted between the operation and the last follow-up. Retroversion was also recorded when displacement of the stem was studied in ten of the patients after two years. Repeated determination of bone mineral density showed an initial loss after six months, followed by recovery to the postoperative level at two years. Defects in the cement mantle and malalignment of the stem were often noted on postoperative radiographs, but did not correlate with the degrees of migration or displacement. After one year, increasing frequency of trabecular remodelling or resorption of the graft was observed in the greater trochanter and distal to the tip of the stem. Cortical repair was noted distally and medially (Gruen regions 3, 5 and 6). Migration of the stems was the lowest reported to date, which we attribute to the improved grafting technique and to the hardness of the graft.  (+info)

The elevated serum alkaline phosphatase--the chase that led to two endocrinopathies and one possible unifying diagnosis. (6/6161)

A 39-year-old Chinese man with hypertension being evaluated for elevated serum alkaline phosphatase (SAP) levels was found to have an incidental right adrenal mass. The radiological features were characteristic of a large adrenal myelolipoma. This mass was resected and the diagnosis confirmed pathologically. His blood pressure normalised after removal of the myelolipoma, suggesting that the frequently observed association between myelolipomas and hypertension may not be entirely coincidental. Persistent elevation of the SAP levels and the discovery of hypercalcaemia after surgery led to further investigations which confirmed primary hyperparathyroidism due to a parathyroid adenoma. The patient's serum biochemistry normalised after removal of the adenoma. The association of adrenal myelolipoma with primary hyperparathyroidism has been reported in the literature only once previously. Although unconfirmed by genetic studies this association may possibly represent an unusual variation of the multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 syndrome.  (+info)

Infrarenal endoluminal bifurcated stent graft infected with Listeria monocytogenes. (7/6161)

Prosthetic graft infection as a result of Listeria monocytogenes is an extremely rare event that recently occurred in a 77-year-old man who underwent endoluminal stent grafting for infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. The infected aortic endoluminal prosthesis was removed by means of en bloc resection of the aneurysm and contained endograft with in situ aortoiliac reconstruction. At the 10-month follow-up examination, the patient was well and had no signs of infection.  (+info)

Endovascular stent graft repair of aortopulmonary fistula. (8/6161)

Two patients who had aortopulmonary fistula of postoperative origin with hemoptysis underwent successful repair by means of an endovascular stent graft procedure. One patient had undergone repeated thoracotomies two times, and the other one time to repair anastomotic aneurysms of the descending aorta after surgery for Takayasu's arteritis. A self-expanding stainless steel stent covered with a Dacron graft was inserted into the lesion through the external iliac or femoral artery. The patients recovered well, with no signs of infection or recurrent hemoptysis 8 months after the procedure. Endovascular stent grafting may be a therapeutic option for treating patients with aortopulmonary fistula.  (+info)

AIMS: To determine the outcomes following revision surgery of metal-on-metal hip arthroplasties (MoMHA) performed for adverse reactions to metal debris (ARMD), and to identify factors predictive of re-revision. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective observational study using National Joint Registry (NJR) data on 2535 MoMHAs undergoing revision surgery for ARMD between 2008 and 2014. The outcomes studied following revision were intra-operative complications, mortality and re-revision surgery. Predictors of re-revision were identified using competing-risk regression modelling. RESULTS: Intra-operative complications occurred in 40 revisions (1.6%). The cumulative five-year patient survival rate was 95.9% (95% confidence intervals (CI) 92.3 to 97.8). Re-revision surgery was performed in 192 hips (7.6%). The cumulative five-year implant survival rate was 89.5% (95% CI 87.3 to 91.3). Predictors of re-revision were high body mass index at revision (subhazard ratio (SHR) 1.06 per kg/m2 increase, 95%
TY - JOUR. T1 - Gram stain detection of infection during revision arthroplasty. AU - Chimento, George F.. AU - Finger, Simon. AU - Barrack, Robert L.. PY - 1996/10/11. Y1 - 1996/10/11. N2 - We reviewed 194 revision arthroplasties of the hip and knee performed over a ten-year period. The results of intraoperative Gram staining were available in 169 (87%). Thirty-two were found to be infected (11 hips and 21 knees) and 137 had no evidence of infection. Intraoperative Gram staining was negative in all 169 cases. The method therefore had a sensitivity of 0% for detecting infection. We conclude that the absence of organisms on intraoperative Gram staining during revision arthroplasty does not confirm the absence of infection..

On the other hand, Kim et al. [1] reported that reoperation should be considered when (1) decreasing CRP level increases again, (2) a 7- to 10-day plateau in the decrease of the CRP level, or (3) failure of postoperative wound drainage output volume to decrease. The authors [1] also suggested that persistent elevation of CRP should be an indication for reoperation. Although some authors proposed persistent pain with local warmth and limitation of motion or persistent infection on postoperative MRI as indications of reoperation, I do not think these measures are objective. Furthermore, it is difficult to differentiate resolution of infection from persistent infection on postoperative MRI. Even after the infection resolves and CRP returns to normal, soft tissue or synovium can be enhanced on gadolinium-enhanced MRI and this finding is non-specific [5,8]. Thus, CRP level can be an important and objective indicator for reoperation. Another objective indicator for reoperation can be wound drainage ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cardiac reoperation in the intensive care unit. AU - Fiser, Steven M.. AU - Tribble, Curtis G.. AU - Kern, John A.. AU - Long, Stewart M.. AU - Kaza, Aditya K.. AU - Kron, Irving L.. PY - 2001/7/3. Y1 - 2001/7/3. N2 - Background. At our institution, cardiac reoperations are routinely performed in the cardiac intensive care unit, as opposed to taking these patients back to the operating room. Our hypothesis was that reoperation in a cardiac intensive care unit does not increase sternal infection rate. Methods. A retrospective analysis was performed on 6,908 adult patients undergoing cardiac operation over a 9-year period. Excluding those in cardiac arrest, 340 (4.9%) patients underwent reoperation in the cardiac intensive care unit, of which 289 survived (85%). Results. Of the 289 patients who survived reoperation in the intensive care unit, 6 developed wound infections that required operative debridement (2.1%), which was not significantly different from those patients not ...
Abstract: It is estimated that as many as 7% of patients who have an aorta-coronary bypass operation will require a second bypass procedure within 10 to 12 years. Using information from the Milwaukee Cardiovascular Data Registry, we matched 166 men who underwent two coronary bypass operations at least 6 months apart, between 1968 and 1981, with 428 patients who had a single procedure. Patients were matched according to date of operation and left ventricular wall motility function for analysis of risk factors for repeat operation. Elevated triglyceride levels were found to be the strongest risk factors associated with reoperation. In addition, both younger age and less complete revascularization during the first operation were significant predictive factors of repeat operation. The results suggest that efforts to reduce plasma triglyceride levels and ensure adequate revascularization may significantly reduce the need for repeat coronary bypass.. Risk factors among patients undergoing repeat ...

With a mean age at diagnosis of 8.7 years, 50% of the patients were female and approximately 39% underwent GTR at some point, which was already achieved in approximately 46% of them in the first surgery. The median OS was 17 months, and PFS was 10 months. In terms of median OS, the authors found no significant difference between those with reoperation for GTR and patients without GTR during treatment. Significant differences were observed in the OS in terms of the extent of resection in the first surgery, age, sex, Ki-67 expression, adjuvant treatment, and treatment initiation from 2010 onward. Furthermore, the PFS values significantly differed between those with GTR in the first surgery and Ki-67 expression ≥ 50%. ...

A requirement for dialysis has been shown to predict postoperative complications in this patient population, but the impact of less severe, but clinically significant, renal impairment has not been addressed. Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted using the American College of Surgeons National Quality Improvement Program Database. All patients who underwent revision TKA between 2007 and 2014 were identified and the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was calculated for each patient. The incidence and ...
The indications and contraindications for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) are controversial. The aim of the study was to determine the risk factors for re-operation in our practice. A series of 113 medial UKAs with mean follow-up of 63 months were reviewed retrospectively. Pre-operatively all knees had radiographic or arthroscopic evidence of severe cartilage damage. The re-operation rate was not related to age, gender, arthroscopic finding or body mass index. It was related to the joint space on pre-operative standing weight bearing radiographs taken in extension. The re-operation rate was 6 (95% CI 2.1-17, P|0.001) times higher when the thickness of the pre-operative medial joint space was |2 mm rather than ≤2 mm. It was 8 (95% CI 2.8-22.5, P|0.001) times higher when the thickness of the pre-operative medial space was |40% of the thickness of the lateral space. The ratio of pre-operative joint spaces has a greater influence on revision rate than the absolute measurement and is independent

We report this to highlight that femoral perforation can occur at the pedestal while reaming the femoral canal during revision arthroplasty. Distal pedestal, the thick endosteal bone bridge at the tip of the previous stem is often difficult to ream during revision and forcible reaming may perforate the femur. Adequate two view plain radiographs should be taken intra-operatively and the use of guide wires with flexible reamers is advised to avoid perforation..

The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was utilised to identify hip fracture patients who underwent THA from 2008 to 2015. Propensity scores were calculated for the likelihood of having a preoperative albumin measurement. Hip fracture patients who underwent THA and had preoperative hypoalbuminemia (,3.5 g/dL) (n = 569) were compared to those who had normal albumin levels (⩾3.5 g/dL) (n = 1098) in terms of demographics and perioperative data. Regression models were adjusted for age, sex, modified Charlson/Deyo scores, and propensity scores to evaluate complication and re-operation rates.. READ MORE ...

The subject of cardiac reoperation in general has been infrequently discussed in the medical literature and has not yet appeared in the nursing literature. Yet reoperation presents a real challenge, accentuating some problems that are also associated with primary cases and posing some considerations that are unique to the reoperative situation. The objectives of this article are to discuss the reasons prompting reoperation for coronary revascularization, identify technical problems associated with reoperative coronary artery surgery, explore potential avenues for decreasing the need for reoperation, and discuss potential patient care problems in the immediate postoperative critical care setting. ...
Advances in the field of joint replacement along with newer implant designs have encouraged surgeons to expand TKA to a younger age group, said senior author James Keeney, MD, associate professor of orthopaedic surgery. Most of our younger patients who have had knee replacement surgery are doing very well, but this patient group has a higher likelihood of needing an additional surgery during their lifetime. A small percentage of these patients may undergo a revision surgery during the first five years after their knee replacement. We wanted to know more about the potential causes of poor outcomes.. Keeneys team completed its own detailed medical record review of 147 patients age 55 and younger and compared them to 276 patients between 60 and 75 years old at the time of surgery. They documented reoperation rates, the timing of reoperation, complications, patient demographics and chronic conditions. They found younger patients were twice as likely to undergo revision surgery within two years ...

AIM Whether reoperation in the postoperative period adversely affects oncologic outcomes for colorectal cancer patients undergoing resection has not been well characterized. The aim of this study was to determine whether long-term oncological outcomes are affected for patients who undergo repeat surgery in the early postoperative period. METHOD From a prospective colorectal cancer database, patients who underwent resection for colorectal cancer between 1982 and 2008 and were reoperated within 30 days after surgery (group A) were matched for age (±5 years), gender, year of surgery (±2 years), American Society of Anesthesiology score, tumor site (colon or rectum), cancer stage and differentiation with patients who did not undergo reoperation (group B). The two groups were compared for overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS) and local recurrence (LR). RESULTS In total, 89 reoperated patients (45 rectal, 44 colon cancer) were matched to an equal number of non-reoperated patients. Anterior
OBJECTIVES:Several studies have investigated, with conflicting results, the risk factors for reoperation in Crohns disease (CD) patients. CARD15 gene variants have been identified as a major genetic risk factor for CD patients and associated with ileal disease, stenosis, and risk of surgery. However, data regarding the association between these variants and the need for reoperation are very few and conflicting. This study evaluated the risk factors of reoperation, including CARD15 gene variants.METHODS:A total of 253 consecutive CD patients, recruited in four Italian tertiary-care inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) referral centers, who had submitted to surgery for CD, were included in the study. Clinical characteristics of CD patients, time and main indications for surgery, type of operation, postoperative therapy, and time to second surgery were recorded. CARD15 gene variants were determined by DNA sequencing analysis in each center. Factors related to surgical recurrence, including CARD15 ...

PY - 2012/1/1. Y1 - 2012/1/1. N2 - Background Revision of failed two-stage revision TKA for infection is challenging, and amputation often is the only alternative. Questions/purposes We asked whether reinfection after two-stage revision for infection could be controlled with an aggressive revision protocol and intraarticular antibiotic infusion. Methods We retrospectively reviewed 18 patients (12 women, six men) who underwent revision for failed reimplantation between January 1999 and January 2008. Mean time from revision for infection to rerevision for reinfection was 5 months (range, 1-18 months).

Beyond the grammatical slip, punctuation error, or misspelled word, revision is a fundamental skill that resides at the very heart of the writing and thinking process. This thesis project highlights concerns over students and teachers similar disdain for the revision process in composition. It suggests the overarching importance of this benchmark skill in all disciplines as a means to deepen consideration of issues and ideas. The concept of revision as more than correction--as a re-seeing and re-thinking--can enable students to be better prepared for further academic pursuits and extends from the classroom to life and vocation. The comprehensive literature review section examines teaching revision and writing concepts to a range of different students. It discusses the idea of revision as an accepted part of the writing process which then becomes a necessary step instead of perceived busy work. Key revision techniques suggested throughout the literature are reviewed and discussed for possible ...

This macabre teaching aid vividly demonstrates the various injuries that a person may receive through war, accident, or disease. It also hammers home the the incontrovertible fact that-no matter how regal, battle-hardened, or beautiful we may fancy ourselves to be-the human body is essentially a meat sack full of goo that is perpetually on the verge of crapping out on us.. That corporeal fragility and the lengths to which intrepid (and otherwise) surgeons throughout human history have gone to address it via novel, absurd, and often downright terrifying surgical interventions is the subject of Dutch surgeon Arnold van der Laars new book, Under the Knife: A History of Surgery in 28 Remarkable Operations. The Wound Man appears therein, alongside a colourful cast of characters hovering on and around the operating table. We see superstar surgeon Robert Liston at work, and learn about the medical troubles of Queen Victoria, Harry Houdini, Vladimir Lenin, a smattering of popes, and the Sun King ...
From what they found during the procedure, he is probably going to need a 2-stage surgery. One of the collaterals that is supplying his lungs with oxygenated blood is shaped in a big twisty S, so its a bit difficult for the blood to flow freely through that path and thats why his levels have been gradually declining over the past few weeks. The first surgery will create a pathway that makes it much easier for blood to get around in his heart/body. The second surgery would be to fix the hole in his heart. Dr. Gremmels is going to try to consult with the surgeons here at Childrens today to see if they feel confident doing the surgery themselves. He is also going to consult with the surgeon at Stanford to see what he thinks. Dr. G believes that the surgeons here will be able to do the surgery themselves, but we will hopefully hear from him later today to know for sure. It looks like Surgery #1 will take place within the next few weeks. Not sure when Surgery #2 will take place. The collaterals ...

At this point, I knew I could no longer hold my job and take care of my son, so I had to leave my employment. About 10 days later, Owen had his first surgery to put a port in to receive his chemo. Since the port being placed, there have been many chemo treatments and many hospital stays. Owen had his first surgery on May 30, 2017 on his right kidney. The procedure was 9 hours long. The tumors were tested, and results came back that Owen had the more aggressive Wilms. Owens chemotherapy treatments were severely altered. More aggressive cancer means more aggressive chemo. Now instead of chemo once a week, it changed to five days a week, full-day treatments. This was particularly hard on Owen. The aggressive treatments were taking the toll on his small body ...
It was just after Christmas of 2002 that we discovered my niece was very ill. Her parents thought it was just a stomach bug that kept her couched for a week. But when Ashley appeared gray and limp and refusing to eat her chocolate treats that Santa left her, we knew something was wrong. After taking her to the emergency room my brother and his wife were told Ashley has Leukemia. She was immediately taken to a medical center for treatment.. Ashley was only three years old, but she lived several months of her life in the hospital. She endured three surgeries and still wears the scars along her abdomen. The first surgery, which nearly every kid with cancer endures, implanted a Picc IV line that administers chemotherapy directly to her heart. We thought that would be the worst. The second surgery was to remove her appendix as it became inflamed from the amount of chemicals coursing through her body. The third and last was the most invasive and the most difficult to watch her heal from. She was ...
