Laparoscopy in Combination with Fast Track Multimodal Management is the Best Perioperative Strategy in Patients Undergoing Colonic Surgery: A Randomized Clinical Trial (LAFA-study)
Optimal perioperative treatment for patients requiring segmental colectomy for colon cancer is laparoscopic resection embedded in a FT program, and if open surgery is applied, it is preferentially done in FT care. Expand
Diagnostic accuracy of noninvasive tests to evaluate bladder outlet obstruction in men: detrusor wall thickness, uroflowmetry, postvoid residual urine, and prostate volume.
Measurements of DWT can detect BOO better than free uroflowmetry, postvoid residual urine, or prostate volume, and in clinical routine, DWT measurements can be used to judge BOO noninvasively. Expand
Systematic review of enhanced recovery programmes in colonic surgery
The aim of this review was to assess FT programmes for elective segmental colonic resections to accelerate recovery, reduce morbidity and shorten hospital stay. Expand
Prevention of nosocomial infection in cardiac surgery by decontamination of the nasopharynx and oropharynx with chlorhexidine gluconate: a randomized controlled trial.
Decontamination of the nasopharynx and oropharynx with chlorhexidine gluconate appears to be an effective method to reduce nosocomial infection after cardiac surgery. Expand
Acute appendicitis: meta-analysis of diagnostic performance of CT and graded compression US related to prevalence of disease.
PURPOSE This study was a head-to-head comparison of graded compression ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) in helping diagnose acute appendicitis with an emphasis on diagnostic value atExpand
Bipolar versus monopolar transurethral resection of the prostate: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
No clinically relevant differences in short-term efficacy exist between the two techniques, but B-TURP is preferable due to a more favorable safety profile and shorter irrigation and catheterization duration and PlasmaKinetic TURP showed an improved safety profile. Expand
Meta analysis on mortality of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms.
This meta-analysis suggests that mortality of patients with RAAA treated by open surgery has not changed over the past 15 years and could be explained by increased age of patients undergoing RAAA repair. Expand
Framework of policy recommendations for implementation of evidence-based practice: a systematic scoping review
More than 20 years after its introduction, the EBP paradigm has been embraced by healthcare professionals as an important means to improve quality of patient care, but its implementation is still deficient. Expand
Evidence-based practice: a survey among pediatric nurses and pediatricians.
This survey compared the attitude, awareness, and knowledge of pediatric nurses and pediatricians regarding evidence-based practice (EBP) and recommended remedies include multilevel training and continuous exchange of information. Expand
Spinal cord stimulation for non-reconstructable chronic critical leg ischaemia.
There is evidence to favour SCS over standard conservative treatment to improve limb salvage and clinical situation in patients with NR-CCLI. Expand
