Background The association between compliance to an enhanced recovery protocol (ERAS) and outcome after surgery for gastric cancer has been poorly investigated, particularly in Western patients. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether the rate of adherence to the ERAS program was correlated with outcome and time of discharge.

Abstract Background To assess whether gadolinium-ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine penta-acetic acid-enhanced MRI study is useful to estimate liver function in comparison to the presence or absence of cirrhosis, Child Pugh (CP), Model for End-stage Liver Disease (MELD), ALBI scores and biochemical test. Methods We retrospectively reviewed all consecutive Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced-MRI studies performed between 2010 and 2016 in patients with focal liver lesions undergoing clinical evaluation. Patients we...
Background Biliary stenting leads to antimicrobial-resistant (AMR) microorganism retrievement in bile cultures. However, the impact of intraoperative bile colonizations on post-pancreaticoduodenectomy complications remains unclear. Aims of our study were to characterize the bile flora of stented patients in comparison with postoperative cultures and to analyze whether patterns of drug resistance affected postoperative outcomes.

Precise risk factors for bleeding after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) need to be further explored. We aimed to identify which variables were associated with the risk of post-pancreatectomy hemorrhage (PPH) and benchmark the PPH rate and related outcome in our intermediate-volume center with the current literature. We retrospectively analyzed 183 PD records. We investigated the association between PPH and a number of pre-surgical (age, body mass index, bilirubin plasma level, gender, American Societ...

Summary Background & aims In retrospective studies an indisputable causal relationship between hyperglycemia and postoperative infections cannot be entirely disclaimed. We aimed investigate whether the time trends of blood glucose levels in the perioperative period could be a determinant of surgery-related infections. Methods Adult patients without diabetes who were candidates for elective major abdominal operation were prospectively enrolled in a longitudinal, observational multicenter study. T...
