  1. Comparison of modified limberg flap and karydakis flap operations in pilonidal sinus surgery: prospective randomized study.

    International surgery 100(5):870 (2015) PMID 26011208 PMCID PMC4452976

    The best surgical technique for pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) is still disputed. The objective of this prospective randomized study is to compare the short and long-term results of modified Limberg flap and Karydakis flap surgeries that have been widely used in recent years. Ninety one patients ...
  2. Transcriptomic profiles differentiate normal rectal epithelium and adenocarcinoma.

    International surgery 100(5):818 (2015) PMID 26011201 PMCID PMC4452969

    Adenocarcinoma is a histologic diagnosis based on subjective findings. Transcriptional profiles have been used to differentiate normal tissue from disease and could provide a means of identifying malignancy. The goal of this study was to generate and test transcriptomic profiles that differentia...
  3. Screening of nutritional risk and nutritional support in general surgery patients: a survey from shanghai, china.

    International surgery 100(5):841 (2015) PMID 26011204 PMCID PMC4452972

    To determine the prevalence of nutritional risk in surgical departments and to evaluate the impact of nutritional support on clinical outcomes. The nutritional risk in different surgical diseases and the different way of nutritional support on clinical outcomes in patients at nutritional risk re...
  4. Laparoscopic management of complicated foreign body ingestion: a case series.

    International surgery 100(5):849 (2015) PMID 26011205 PMCID PMC4452973

    This study aims to demonstrate the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic management of complicated foreign body (FB) ingestion in a series of 5 patients. We present the merits of a minimally-invasive approach in this clinical setting from our series as well as published case reports. FB ingesti...
  5. Recurrence-free survival of a hepatocellular carcinoma patient with tumor thrombosis of the inferior vena cava after treatment with sorafenib and hepatic resection.

    International surgery 100(5):908 (2015) PMID 26011214 PMCID PMC4452982

    Sorafenib (Nexabar, Bayer, Berlin, Germany), one of multikinase inhibitors, can infrequently downstage advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). There are some reports that sorafenib in combination with other modalities, such as transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) or radiation therapy...
  6. Asymptomatic Mesenchymal Hamartoma of the Chest Wall in Child With Fluorodeoxyglucose Uptake on PET/CT-Report of a Case.

    International surgery 100(5):915 (2015) PMID 26011215 PMCID PMC4452983

    We had experience with a case of mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall (MHCW) with fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake on positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT). We reported the first case of asymptomatic MHCW in a child with preoperative PET/CT. Mesenchymal hamartoma of the che...
  7. Clear cell "sugar" tumor of the lung: benign or malignant?

    International surgery 100(5):924 (2015) PMID 26011217 PMCID PMC4452985

    Clear cell "sugar" tumors of the lung are rare pulmonary tumors. This case study illustrates a patient who was found to have a persistent nodule in the left-upper lobe of the lung. Positron emission tomographic scanning showed mild-moderate 18-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake. Based on these findings, ...
  8. Mean platelet volume: is it a predictive parameter in diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischemia?

    International surgery 100(5):962 (2015) PMID 26011224 PMCID PMC4452993

    Our objective for this study was to discuss the usability of mean platelet volume, which is associated with numerous vascular pathologies, in the early diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischemia. Acute mesenteric ischemia is an uncommon, life-threatening clinical condition mostly seen in the elderly...
  9. Perioperative Allogeneic Blood Transfusion Is Associated With Surgical Site Infection After Abdominoperineal Resection-a Space for the Implementation of Patient Blood Management Strategies.

    International surgery 100(5):797 (2015) PMID 26011197 PMCID PMC4452965

    Allogeneic blood transfusion (ABT) has been reported as a major risk factor for surgical site infection (SSI) in patients undergoing colorectal surgery. However, the association of ABT with SSI in patients undergoing abdominoperineal resection (APR) and total pelvic exenteration (TPE) still rema...
  10. The rebirth of international surgery.

    International surgery 100(5):773 (2015) PMID 26011194 PMCID PMC4452961
