Background: Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) is a cost-effective, efficient, and minimally invasive method of treating choledocholithiasis. We reviewed the long-term results and efficacy of LCBDE for the common bile duct (CBD) stones in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Methods: Medical charts were reviewed for all(More)
BACKGROUND Activation of NF-kappa B-dependent antiapoptotic genes may factor in the chemoresistance of pancreatic cancer. It is not known whether NF-kappa B subunit composition changes during oncogenesis and regulates overall NF-kappa B activation. We compared the relative expression of NF-kappa B subunits with nuclear activation of p65 between variably(More)
BACKGROUND Interhospital transfer is common among patients undergoing colorectal surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine surgical outcomes after transfer vs direct admission in patients undergoing colorectal surgery. METHODS The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2010 to 2012 was used.(More)
PURPOSE Concerns persist regarding respiratory complications from combination deep intravenous sedation and local anesthesia for prone position anorectal surgery. We examined the safety and efficacy of this approach by using a propofol-based and ketamine-based technique. METHODS A retrospective review was conducted on all patients undergoing anorectal(More)
This report describes a case of amnesia during a cold-water experiment. The volunteer was exposed three times in 1 day (120 min duration each time) to 20 degrees C water. During the third immersion, from min 95 to min 115, the subject experienced transient global amnesia for 20 min. The rectal temperature during this time was 35.6 degrees C. This single(More)
Despite advancements in the field of surgical oncology, the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer still carries a grave and dismal prognosis. Surgery alone for adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head or uncinate process has a median survival time of 12 months. These grim statistics have led many to study the effects of combined multimodality therapy in the fight(More)
Laparoscopic resection of diverticular disease is typically offered to selected patients. We present the outcomes of laparoscopic colectomy in consecutive patients suffering from either simple diverticulitis (SD) or complicated diverticulitis (CD). To examine the outcomes of laparoscopic sigmoid colectomy for complicated diverticulitis. Between December(More)
A paucity of data exists on the impact of transfer status on outcomes for patients undergoing non-emergency (urgent) colorectal surgery. This study characterized transferred patients undergoing urgent colorectal surgery and determined which patient comorbidities significantly contributed to poor outcomes. The American College of Surgeons National Surgical(More)
This study sought to evaluate the incidence of ostomy site incisional hernias after stoma reversal at a single institution. This is a retrospective analysis from 2001 to 2011 evaluating the following demographics: age, gender, indication for stoma, urgent versus elective operation, time to closure, total follow-up time, the incidence of and reoperation for(More)
