Evaluation of the “50-50 criteria” of post-hepatectomy liver failure as mortality predictor after resection of liver tumors
BACKGROUND: Post-hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) represents a serious complication of liver resection. A standardized definition of PHLF based on serum total bilirubin (TB) level and prothrombin time (PT) reduction at the fifth postoperative day (POD-5) gained wide popularity. METHODS: Medical records of consecutive adult patients who underwent elective liver resection for hepatic neoplasms from May 2015 to April 2018 were ... Read more

Safety and efficacy of laparoscopic versus open surgery in management of common bile duct stones. Experience at the Sohag university hospital
BACKGROUND : Management of common bile duct (CBD) stones includes removal of the gallbladder and clearance of the ductal system which can be achieved through different approaches; endoscopic, laparoscopic or surgical. OBJECTIVE: To assess the safety, efficacy, technical feasibility and surgical outcomes of laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) versus open surgery in the treatment of patients with cholidocholithiasis. PATIENTS ... Read more

Laparoscopic versus open restoration of the gut continuity after Hartmann’s procedure
Background: In 1921, Hartmann, a French surgeon described his operation for the resection of left-sided colonic carcinoma. The technique described a sigmoid colectomy without anastomosis; a left lower quadrant end colostomy and the rectal stump closure was performed. The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of the laparoscopic and open restoration of the gut continuity after Hartmann ... Read more

Desarda versus lichtenstein repair for inguinal hernia - a randomized, multi-center controlled trial with promising results
Background: The techniques for treatment of an inguinal hernia range from the tissue-repairs to the tension-free hernioplasty. The use of a mesh for repair not free of complications and had higher costs. The Desarda technique for inguinal hernia repair is a new tissue-based method application of the external oblique muscle aponeurosis in the form of an undetached strip has been ... Read more

Closure of Appendicular Stump Using Absorbable Polydioxnon Endoclips in Laproscopoic Appendictomy
Background: Since 1983 when the 1st laparoscopic appendectomy was described by Semms, different methods for closure of the appendicular stump during laparoscopic appendectomy such as linear stapler (Endo GIA), endoloop ligature, intracorporeal suture and metal endoclips were used. The use of non-absorbable plastic clips was described in several studies which reported the low cost and easy application of these clips. ... Read more

The Role of Laparoscopy in Diagnosis of Ascites of Obscure Etiology
Background: The role of diagnostic laparoscopy was markedly decreased with the advent of major developments in noninvasive imaging modalities such as ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. However, many reports suggest that imaging has a limited role in the diagnosis of exudative ascites. The aim of the present study was to answer the question if there still a place ... Read more

Sutureless versus conventional thyroidectomy
Background: The thyroid gland is a highly-vascularized organ, prompt and effective hemostasis is a crucial part of the procedure. Nowadays with the major advent of energy devices such as ultrasonic coagulation (Harmonic Scalpel, Ethicon) and bipolar energy (LigaSure, Valleylab) for cutting and hemostasis introducing new methods of vessel ligation and division without increasing the risk of postoperative complications. The aim ... Read more

Sutureless, bloodless, safe new circumcision technique
Background: Several techniques of circumcision are available such as conventional surgical technique, the device (Gomco, Plastibell), mono and bipolar diathermy and sutureless methods such as fibrin glue. Our knowledge, the first report of using harmonic scalpel in circumcision was published by Peng et al, in the Asian journal of andrology but the study was done on dogs, this one of ... Read more

Ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract for complex anorectal fistulas with initial promising results
Background The aim of anal fistula treatment is to cure the disease without any risk for fecal incontinence. Surgery for treating anal fistulas can be divided into two types: sphincter-sacrificing and sphincter-saving methods. There are many sphinctersaving operations such as ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract, application of fibrin glue, endorectal advancement flap, and video-assisted fistula surgery. Objective The aim ... Read more

Morbidity and mortality after total thyroidectomy for nonmalignant thyroid disorder: 10 years’ experience
Background In the last two decades of the 20th century, surgery for nonmalignant thyroid disease had changed from function-preserving surgery towards ablative surger. This was due to higher recurrence rates of goitre (9–43%) and an increased risk for postoperative complications in reoperations after subtotal resection Patients and methods. This retrospective study included patients with nonmalignant thyroid disease who were referred ... Read more
