Abstract Background To determine the incidence of concomitant intra-articular glenohumeral injuries in patients undergoing surgical management from distal clavicle fractures (DCF) with shoulder arthroscopy and their impact on outcome. Methods This systematic review was conducted following the PRISMA guidelines. PubMed, EMBASE, and Virtual Health Library databases were accessed in October 2021. All the clinical studies evaluating the surgical management of DCF and using concomitant intra-operatory shoulder arthroscopy were included. Studies that did not specify the concomitant injury type were not eligible. Data from the incidence of intra-articular glenohumeral injuries, injury type, length of the follow-up, and clinical outcomes were retrieved. The quantitative content assessment was performed using the STROBE statement checklist. Evaluation of the publication bias of the included studies was performed using the risk of bias assessment tool for systematic reviews. Results Data from five retrospective and five prospective cohort studies were analyzed. Eight of the included studies were conducted on patient cohorts with Neer type II injuries. Data pooling revealed a mean of 17.70% of concomitant glenohumeral injuries, whereas 84.21% of them required additional surgical management (Table 1). Rotator cuff injuries, labral tears, and biceps pulley lesions were the most common concomitant injuries. Conclusion Preoperative MRI or diagnostic arthroscopy to evaluate glenohumeral associated injuries to DCF should be recommended.

Background: Aim: To assess efficacy of functional endoscopic sinus surgery in surgical management of ethmoid polyps.Methods:One hundred twelve adult patients age ranged 18- 38 years of either gender with ethmoid polyps underwent FESS under general anesthesia. The extent of surgery was decided based on the findings in pre-operative CT scan of paranasal sinuses. Anterior ethmoidectomy, posterior ethmoidectomy, middle meatus antrostomy and clearance of frontal recess were performed in all the patients. Five functional criteria were evaluated as nasalobstruction , anosmia, rhinorrhea, post nasal drip, head ache and facial pain.Results:Pre- operative nasal obstruction percentage was 3.42 and post- operative ercentage was 2.10, Anosmia percentage was 2.14 and 1.15, Rhinorrhea percentage was 3.56 and 2.08 and ocular problem in 1 and synechia in 4 cases.Conclusions:Functional endoscopic sinus surgery found to be effective in management of ethmoid polyps and hence can be the treatment of choice.

The surgical management of aortic valve endocarditis can be challenging. Infection with abscess formation can destroy the root and annulus, making it difficult to anchor a valve conduit. In this article, we present a novel and efficient strategy for proximal aortic reconstruction. We used a Dacron tube graft and anchored it proximally with a running suture line deep in the left ventricular outflow tract. The coronary buttons were attached, and a Perceval valve was then deployed inside the neo-root to create a bio-Bentall.

Abstract Background Progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis (PFIC) is a heterogeneous group of genetic autosomal recessive diseases that cause severe cholestasis, which progresses to cirrhosis and liver failure, in infancy or early childhood. We herein report the clinical outcomes of surgical management in patients with four types of PFIC. Case presentation Six patients diagnosed with PFIC who underwent surgical treatment between 1998 and 2020 at our institution were retrospectively assessed. Living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) was performed in 5 patients with PFIC. The median age at LDLT was 4.8 (range: 1.9–11.4) years. One patient each with familial intrahepatic cholestasis 1 (FIC1) deficiency and bile salt export pump (BSEP) deficiency died after LDLT, and the four remaining patients, one each with deficiency of FIC1, BSEP, multidrug resistance protein 3 (MDR3), and tight junction protein 2 (TJP2), survived. One FIC1 deficiency recipient underwent LDLT secondary to deterioration of liver function, following infectious enteritis. Although he underwent LDLT accompanied by total external biliary diversion, the patient died because of PFIC-related complications. The other patient with FIC1 deficiency had intractable pruritus and underwent partial internal biliary diversion (PIBD) at 9.8 years of age, pruritus largely resolved after PIBD. One BSEP deficiency recipient, who had severe graft damage, experienced recurrence of cholestasis due to the development of antibodies against BSEP after LDLT, and eventually died due to graft failure. The other patient with BSEP deficiency recovered well after LDLT and there was no evidence of posttransplant recurrence of cholestasis. In contrast, recipients with MDR3 or TJP2 deficiency showed good courses and outcomes after LDLT. Conclusions Although LDLT was considered an effective treatment for PFIC, the clinical courses and outcomes after LDLT were still inadequate in patients with FIC1 and BSEP deficiency. LDLT accompanied by total biliary diversion may not be as effective for patients with FIC1 deficiency.

Introduction/Background: The purpose of this systematic review is to assess the literature regarding complications associated with intraoperative blood salvage (IOBS) in the setting of surgical management of craniosynostosis. Methods: A systematic review was performed using PubMed/MEDLINE by 2 independent reviewers which included any primary literature investigating the use of IOBS in the surgical management of craniosynostosis. Results: The literature search resulted in 354 initial articles. After removing duplicates and articles not written in English, 330 articles underwent title review, resulting in 25 papers for abstract review. A total of 24 manuscripts were reviewed and 9 were deemed appropriate for inclusion of this systematic review. Two of the nine articles mentioned complications as a secondary objective. Conclusion: There is a paucity of current literature measuring the complications of IOBS in craniosynostosis patients undergoing cranial vault reconstruction.
