We have investigated the incidence of throat complaints 6-24 h after tracheal intubation in 1325 patients. Variables such as anaesthetic drug, intubation time, number of intubation attempts, gastric tube, sex and age were recorded. The incidence of sore throat was considerably lower (14.4%) compared with other reports in the literature and was significantly(More)
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is the preferred surgical treatment for symptomatic gallstones. The laparoscopic procedure is superior to the open approach in many aspects. Intraperitoneal spillage of bile and gallstones is one of the most common accidental occurrences of LC. We present a case of a 53-year-old woman who developed two abscesses--one(More)
BACKGROUND Restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) is the preferred surgical treatment for ulcerative colitis (UC). Little is known of how the operation affects bone metabolism and fracture risk. The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to investigate fracture risk and serum markers of bone metabolism following IPAA in a(More)
We present four cases of life-threatening methotrexate intoxications of patients with rheumatological disease. In two of the cases, the direct cause of intoxication was accidentally daily administration of the drug instead of weekly. The patients presented with uncharacteristic symptoms, including nausea, mucositis and fever. All of them had pancytopenia,(More)
Single-insicion laparoscopic surgery (SILS) and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) represent the latest development in minimally invasive surgery and are used in a wide variety of operations, e.g. cholecystectomies. The proposed benefits are less surgical trauma, reduced post-operative pain, smaller risk of infection and hence a(More)
OBJECTIVES The prone position is used for intubated patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and acute lung injury (ALI). The physiological changes associated with the prone position in nonintubated patients may be even more favorable than in intubated patients. We examined the effect of the prone position on arterial blood gases and patient(More)
In ‘‘NOTES cholecystectomy: matched-pair analysis comparing the transvaginal hybrid and conventional laparoscopic techniques in a series of 216 patients’’, Zornig et al. [1] analyze the postoperative outcome retrospectively in 200 females, who have nonrandomly been allocated to either a NOTES cholecystectomy (TVC) or a conventional laparoscopic(More)
In your meta-analysis, you concluded that single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) is a safe procedure compared to conventional multiport laparoscopic cholecystectomy (CMLC). You have included 12 randomized studies in your analysis, all of which investigate specific primary and secondary endpoints. Of the 12 studies, only Phillips et al. have(More)
