PURPOSE According to current guidelines, perioperative chemotherapy is an integral part of the treatment strategy for advanced gastric cancer. Randomized controlled studies have been conducted in order to determine whether perioperative chemotherapy leads to improved R0 resection rates, fewer recurrences, and prolonged survival. The aim of our project was(More)
According to the recommendations of the German S3 guideline, perioperative chemotherapy is an integral part of the treatment concept for advanced gastric cancer. The leading trial which examined the effects of perioperative chemotherapy is the MAGIC study. An examination of the validity of this study with a standardized method revealed shortcomings in the(More)
Objective. Ultrasound (US)-guided pain procedures become increasingly important due to their numerous advantages. Solid proficiency is necessary, however, to minimize complications and guarantee adequate performance. To enable beginners to learn the relevant skills in the technique of US-guided stellate ganglion (SGB) and intercostal nerve block (ICB), a(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine if international guidelines differ in their recommendations concerning additive therapy for advanced, but potentially curable, gastric cancer. A systematic search of the English and German literature was conducted in the databases Medline, Cochrane Database, Embase, and PubMed. The search terms used were(More)

Aufgrund der steigenden Kosten im Gesundheitssystem ist es heutzutage wichtig, Prozessabläufe durch Standardisierung und Prozessverdichtung zu optimieren. Dabei kann es in der HNO durch zu geringe Prozessdichte im OP-Funktionsbereich oder durch zu lange Verweildauern der Patienten im Krankenhaus zu erhöhten Kosten kommen. Ziel dieser Studie war es zu(More)
Der verzögerte morgendliche Beginn der produktiven Tätigkeiten im OP führt zu einer unzureichenden Personalnutzung und Ressourcenausschöpfung dieses kostenintensiven Funktionsbereichs. Der Klinik für Anästhesiologie kommt bezüglich der rechtzeitigen Freigabe des Patienten für den chirurgischen Eingriff eine besondere Bedeutung zu. Hierbei muss stets(More)
BACKGROUND Induction areas (IA) can lead to more efficient operating sessions through shortening the changeover time between patients. To date IAs have always required additional staff members, whose cost was only partly covered by improvements in productivity. The objective of this project was to demonstrate that a reduction in non-operative time through a(More)
We report a case of recurrent gastritis with pyloric stenosis and cholangitis due to a rare variation in bile duct anatomy. A 72-year-old female patient showed recurrent gastral ulcers and biliary colic with cholangitis caused by gallstones in the main bile duct with an ectopic orifice in the prepyloric region and concurrent inflammatory pyloric stenosis.(More)
Eine zentrale Einleitung (ZE, „induction area“) kann durch Verkürzung der Wechselzeiten zu einer verbesserten Saalauslastung führen. Dies wurde bisher mit zusätzlichem Personal durchgeführt; die höheren Personalkosten waren nur teilweise durch höhere Produktivität gedeckt. Ziel dieser Untersuchung war die personalneutrale Umsetzung der Wechselzeiten in der(More)
