INTRODUCTION The aim of the work was to evaluate the implementation of Clavien - Dindo classification of surgical complications into a routine clinical praxis and to evaluate the results achieved at the university department of surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS Prospectively collected data of patients hospitalized at the Clinic of Surgery of the University(More)
BACKGROUND AND METHODS Intraoperative enteroscopy is an invasive technique for small bowel investigation. It enables us to investigate the entire small intestine and to treat pathological findings by endoscopic or surgical means at the same time. The investigation is invasive and that is why the proper indication is mandatory. RESULTS Forty-one(More)
Retrospective evaluation of 12-year experience with endovascular management of acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) due to embolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). From 2003 to 2014, we analysed the in-hospital mortality of 37 patients with acute mesenteric embolism who underwent primary endovascular therapy with subsequent on-demand(More)
The quality of a total mesorectal excision (TME) is one of the most important prognostic factors for local recurrence of rectal carcinoma. The aim of this study was to clarify the manner in which lesser pelvis dimensions affect the quality of TME via the transabdominal approach, while simultaneously defining the criteria for selecting patients most likely(More)
A 28-year-old female patient was operated on account of symptomatic hepatocellular adenomas of the liver. Tumours with a diameter of 10 x 11 cm in the left lobe and 9 x 7 cm in the right lober were extirpated. In the adenomas non-ferric pigment resembling the pigment in Dubin-Johnson's syndrome was detected. The patient did not use contraceptives and was(More)
BACKGROUND Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) may arise in any part of the gastrointestinal tract; extra-gastrointestinal locations are extremely rare. Only a few cases of extragastrointestinal stromal tumor arising from the pancreas were reported. None of the reports described a long-term follow-up of the patients. METHOD This report describes an(More)
Three cases of intraperitoneal bleeding from extrahepatic portal vein laceration were observed in a series of 104 patients with TIPS. In one patient, bleeding continued after Wallstent placement and the patient died during an emergency laparotomy. Bleeding was stopped in the other two patients by using a stent graft rather than a regular stent. One shunt(More)
AIM The aim of the present study was to evaluate a single-center experience in hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) of patients with biliary tract carcinomas. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of 60 patients treated between 1997 and 2011 was performed. RESULTS Most patients were treated with HAI of a combination of 5-fluorouracil, folinic acid(More)
Aortic dissection is primarily localized in the thoracic aorta. Dissection of the abdominal aorta is exceedingly rare, especially in the absence of a blunt abdominal trauma. Two cases of a primarily infrarenal aortic dissection were diagnosed by US, CT and angiography. The patients were treated by stent graft placement. The stent grafts were introduced via(More)
Our aim is to present midterm results after endovascular repair of acute and chronic blunt aortic injury. Between December 1999 and December 2005, 13 patients were endovascularly treated for blunt aortic injury. Ten patients, 8 men and 2 women, mean age 38.7 years, were treated for acute traumatic injury in the isthmus region of thoracic aorta.(More)
