    Glove perforation frequently occurs during the course of surgical procedures, introducing risks for both surgeons and patients. The aim of this study was to compare the use of blunt tapered and "sharp" needles during abdominal wall closure with respect to the incidence of glove perforation and...

    The decision to perform a relaparotomy in patients with secondary peritonitis is based on “clinical judgment” with inherent variability among surgeons. Our objective was to review the literature on prognostic variables for ongoing abdominal infection. Predictive variables for...

    It is often not feasible to conduct large trials in orthopaedic surgery. Therefore, surgeons must identify strategies to optimize the statistical power of their smaller studies. The aim of this study was to compare study power in randomized trials with continuous versus dichotomous outcome...

    Abstract: Background: Recent reports describing surgical experiences with childhood IE are sparse. We sought to determine patient-specific characteristics and their impact on outcome for children with infective endocarditis (IE) undergoing surgical intervention. We therefore reviewed all cases...

    Background Administration of supplemental oxygen in the perioperative period is controversial, as it may increase long-term mortality. Our aim was to assess the association between 80% oxygen and occurrence of subsequent cancer in patients undergoing abdominal surgery in a post hoc analysis of...

    Among 450 patients who underwent lung transplantation (LuT) between April 1994 and April 2009 at a single academic hospital, 75 received surgical consultation, and 52 underwent 65 abdominal operations. Operations included colectomy (17), cholecystectomy (14), exploratory laparotomy (10), ulcer...

    Background Tension, ischemia, and technical error are factors leading to anastomotic complications such as leak, stricture, and ulceration with bleeding. Currently, surgeons evaluate tissue ischemia without any simple routine measurement technique. A new tissue surface probe, T-Stat 303,...
