Quality of life (QoL) after deceased donor liver transplantation is increasingly recognized as a major outcome parameter. We reviewed recent publications in this rapidly evolving field in order to summarize recent achievements in the field and to define opportunities and perspectives for research and improvement of patient care. QoL does improve after liver(More)
Adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (A2ALDLT) is an accepted mode of treatment for end-stage liver disease. Right-lobe grafts have usually been preferred in view of the higher graft volume, which lowers the risk of a small-for-size syndrome. However, donor left hepatectomy is associated with less morbidity than when it is compared to right(More)
OBJECTIVE Recently, pancreaticogastrostomy (PG) has attracted renewed interest as a reconstruction technique after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD), as it may imply a lower risk of clinical pancreatic fistula than reconstruction by pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ). We hypothesise that pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI) is more common during clinical follow-up(More)
Evaluate the results of surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in early and late period after laparoscopic fundoplication. Materials and methods: The study based on the results of examination and surgical treatment of 93 patients with GERD, which was performed laparoscopic fundoplication. The average disease duration was 45,4 ± 11,4(More)
To evaluate the efficacy of negative pressure therapy for superficial and deep mesh infections after ventral and incisional hernia repair by a prospective monocentric observational study. During a 6-year period, 724 consecutive open ventral and incisional hernia repairs were performed. Pre- and intraoperative data as well as postoperative complications were(More)
Introduction: A new class of hernia repair devices has been created through the combination of optimally processed extracellular matrices (ECM) and select monofilament polymers. The resulting Reinforced BioScaffolds (RBS) are designed to exceed physiological forces and remodel in response to these forces, with the goal of providing a load sharing construct(More)
To prospectively evaluate the use of a continuous Nitinol containing memory frame patch during a TIPP-technique in the open repair of inguinal and femoral hernias. Over a 3-year period all consecutive adult patients that needed treatment for an inguinal or femoral hernia were treated by the TIPP repair using the Rebound Shield mesh. Intra-operatively the(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Although laparoscopic cholecystectomy is advocated for acute cholecystitis, debate still exists about its optimal timing. This retrospective study compares the outcome of laparoscopic cholecystectomy within versus later than 5 days of onset of symptoms in patients with acute cholecystitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred thirty(More)
AIM We retrospectively analyzed incisional hernia (IH) outcomes of liver transplant (LT) vs. hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) cases sharing the same incision. METHODS IH repair patients with a history of LT were compared with those with HPB surgical history sharing the same type of incision and using the European Hernia Society classification and(More)
