BACKGROUND: The prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysms is higher in population with other vascular comorbidities, especially among men. Utility of screening among patients with cerebrovascular disease is unclear. OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysm in male patients with diagnosed cerebrovascular disease manifested by transient ischemic attack or stroke. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between May 2013 and May 2014, all consecutive male patients undergoing carotid ultrasou...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal rectus diastasis can lead to functional disability. There is no consensus regarding treatment. This was a prospective study on patients randomized to surgery using either Quill self-retaining sutures or retromuscular mesh for abdominal rectus diastasis repair. The primary aim of the study was to compare long-term recurrence after surgery. Secondary aims were abdominal muscle strength, pain, and quality of life. METHODS: A total of 57 patients were eligible and 52 were inves...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Pancreatic and periampullary cancers are sometimes found to have a too advanced disease during surgery to allow resection. The aim was to describe characteristics, treatment, outcome, and time trends for patients that were planned for pancreatic surgery but found unresectable during surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Data from the Swedish National Pancreatic and Periampullary Cancer Registry were used. All patients registered between January 2010 and August 2018 were included. T...

INTRODUCTION: Hypoparathyroidism is the most common complication following thyroidectomy, and various algorithms for early detection have been suggested. The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of measuring the parathyroid hormone level 2 h after thyroidectomy and whether determination of the perioperative decline in parathyroid hormone added diagnostic value. METHODS: Patients subjected to thyroidectomy for benign thyroid disorders were analyzed in (1) a retrospective registe...

PURPOSE: To assess overall survival and to determine factors predicting outcome after thoracic endovascular aortic repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A Retrospective analysis was performed on a cohort of 212 consecutive patients (165 men and 47 women; mean age 64 years) who underwent thoracic endovascular aortic repair in a tertiary referral center for aortic disease. Main indications were true thoracic aortic aneurysm (n = 58; 27.6%), traumatic aortic rupture (n = 33; 15.7%), anastomotic pseudoaneu...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Lateral-only Kirschner-wire pinning of supracondylar humerus fracture is superior in avoiding surgery-related ulnar nerve injury. Their disadvantageous effects on stability may be a consequence of inappropriate surgical techniques. We analyzed whether the surgeon's preference for lateral-only fixation is associated with his or her orthopedic competence. We also analyzed the surgical technique-related risk factors of redisplacement. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All children, aged 5...

Chronic pancreatitis is a long-term illness leading to hospital admissions and readmission. This disease is often caused by heavy alcohol consumption and smoking. Patients with chronic pancreatitis suffer from acute or chronic pain episodes, recurrent pancreatitis, and complications, such as pseudocysts, biliary duct strictures, and pancreatic duct fistulas. Pancreatic duct strictures and stones may increase intraductal pressure and cause pain. Endoscopic therapy is aiming at decompressing the p...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: A positive resection margin is considered to be a factor associated with poor prognosis after pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma resection. However, analysis of the resection margin is dependent on the pathological slicing technique. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to study the impact of resection margin on the survival of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients whose specimens were analyzed using the axial slicing technique. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A s...
