Bariatric and metabolic surgery is increasingly being utilized in Germany and also worldwide. Due to the increased perioperative risk compared to non-obese patients, a detailed and accurate preoperative assessment of the patient is pivotal to improve postoperative and long-term outcomes. The indications for bariatric surgery have shifted in recent years from a certain body mass index (BMI) to comorbidity-based indications. In 2018 the German S3 guidelines for metabolic surgery defined the indica...

The implementation of technological innovations in surgery, such as robotic-assisted procedures, novel implants, navigation or modern visualization techniques, pose an economic challenge for institutions, as they are rarely cost-covering per se. In the German diagnosis-related groups (DRG) system, the costs of numerous novel technologies and innovations in surgery are not or not sufficiently covered in the short term and even less in the middle and long term. This review article describes the ec...

Transanal resection procedures are special surgical methods for the minimally invasive treatment of rectal tumors. Apart from benign tumors, this operative procedure is suitable for the excision of so-called low-risk T1 rectal carcinomas, if these can be completely removed up to healthy tissue (R0 resection) due to the size and localization. With stringent patient selection very good oncological results are achieved. Various international trials are currently evaluating whether local resection p...

Current developments in the field of extended reality (XR) could prove useful in the optimization of surgical workflows, time effectiveness and postoperative outcome. Although still primarily a subject of research, the state of XR technologies is rapidly improving and approaching feasibility for a broad clinical application. Surgical fields of application of XR technologies are currently primarily training, preoperative planning and intraoperative assistance. For all three areas, products alread...

BACKGROUND: The Federal Joint Committee (GBA) is currently discussing the introduction of new minimum volume regulations (MVR) in Germany. The present study examined the current opinions of active thoracic surgeons regarding minimum volumes (MV) for the surgical treatment of lung cancer. METHODS: The participating centers for the online survey were identified on the basis of the thoracic surgery departments in the 2017 hospital directory (Federal Statistical Office), lung cancer centers (German ...
More than 45% of polytraumatized patients in Germany suffer from severe thoracic trauma. Due to the urgent time factor (e.g. respiratory insufficiency and severe bleeding), a structured procedure in the diagnostics and treatment according to the advanced trauma life support (ATLS) criteria is necessary both prehospital and in the emergency room in order to provide the patient with adequate care. If a patient is stable or can be stabilized there is the option of using extended diagnostics, such a...
