BACKGROUND/AIMS Restorative proctocolectomy is the "golden standard" in surgical treatment of ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis. The two alternative techniques of ileal-pouch-anal anastomosis include hand-made suture and double line stapled suture. The aim of the study was the analysis of postoperative complications and functional(More)
One of the most important complications during thyroid surgery is injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) which leads to dysfunction and palsy of the vocal folds. Adequate knowledge about the location of the RLN supported by neuromonitoring can help the operating surgeon to prevent this complication. Visualisation of the nerve alone seems to not be(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The aim of the study was to evaluate histological liver lesions and to compare these with the results of biochemical parametres. METHODOLOGY An experimental model of chronic ulcerative colitis in rats was utilized. RESULTS Histological studies of the biliary tree showed progressive fibrotic inflammation which fulfilled the criteria of(More)
Ulcerative colitis in Buffalo rats was induced by acetic acid introduced into sigmoid colon. In specimens of the colon and head of the pancreas obtained via laparotomy after seven-day colitis ulcerosa and simultaneously the pancreatic islet cell hyperplasia were histologically observed. Further investigations, especially immunological studies, of these(More)
Ninety cases of knee joint cysts were treated surgically. This included 50 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, 22 patients with degenerative-deforming changes, ten children with true cysts, and eight ones with post-traumatic cysts. Double-contrast X-ray examination with Lipiodol Ultra-fluid and air is of the best diagnostic value. All cases of knee joint(More)
27 patients operated for bile duct injuries as a complication of cholecystectomy were analyzed. The methods of surgical management in "fresh" bile duct injuries and delayed complications such as stenosis of bile ducts or anastomosis and recurrent cholangitis were discussed. Mucosa to mucosa, Roux-en-Y anastomosis, without splinting drains seems to be the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Relation between cancer of the exocrine part of the pancreas and chronic pancreatitis has not been clearly defined and the problem of carcinogens based on long-lasting chronic pancreatitis is still a matter of discussion. METHODOLOGY The aim of the study was analysis of postoperative material of patients who in the years 1999-2003(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the healing of single-layer end-to-end colonic anastomoses in rats in which the inferior mesenteric artery had been ligated. DESIGN Controlled experiment. SETTING Medical school, Poland. ANIMALS 20, 2-month-old inbred Buffalo rats (n = 10 in each group). INTERVENTIONS Laparotomy with ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery(More)
Different methods of pancreatic stump management are possible to perform after pancreaticoduodenectomy. The group of 24 patients after pancreaticoduodenectomy with pancreaticojejunostomy, pancreaticogastrostomy and occlusion of the pancreatic duct by Neopren or Ethiblock were analysed. According to the literature and own results pancreatogastrostomy or(More)
The results of surgical management (restorative proctocolectomy) in 15 patients operated on for familial polyposis and ulcerative colitis were presented. The comparison of ileo-anal, hand-sewn anastomosis with endorectal mucosectomy and double-stapled ileo-rectal anastomosis indicates both methods equally useful in surgical practice. In all patients J-pouch(More)
