This systematic review aimed to investigate the available quality of evidence (QOE) of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) for liver transplantation (LT) on short-term outcomes, grade recommendations and identify relevant components for ERAS protocols. A systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted on short-term outcomes after LT when applying comprehensive ERAS protocols (>1 ERAS component) versus control groups (CRD42021210374), following the GRADE approach for grading quality of evid...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate whether neoadjuvant therapy (NAT) critically influenced microscopically complete resection (R0) rates and long-term outcomes for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) with portomesenteric vein resection (PVR) from a diverse, world-wide group of high-volume centers. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Limited size studies suggest that NAT improves R0 rates and overall survival compared to upfront surgery in R...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate peak serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and postoperative clinical outcomes after hypothermic oxygenated machine perfusion (HOPE) versus static cold storage (SCS) in extended criteria donation (ECD) liver transplantation (LT) from donation after brain death (DBD). BACKGROUND HOPE might improve outcomes in LT, particularly in high-risk settings such as ECD organs after DBD, but this hypothesis has not yet been tested in a randomized controlled cli...

OBJECTIVE Preemptive endoluminal vacuum therapy (pEVT) is a novel concept to reduce postoperative morbidity and has the potential to disrupt current treatment paradigms for patients undergoing esophagectomy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Endoluminal vacuum therapy is an accepted treatment for AL after esophagectomy. METHODS Retrospective analysis of patients undergoing minimally invasive Ivor Lewis esophagectomy with pEVT between 11/2017 and 10/2020. The sponge was removed endoscopically after 4-6 ...

OBJECTIVE To define "best possible" outcomes for secondary bariatric surgery (BS). BACKGROUND Management of poor response and of long-term complications after BS is complex and under-investigated. Indications and types of reoperations vary widely and postoperative complication rates are higher compared to primary BS. METHODS Out of 44,884 BS performed in 18 high-volume centers from 4 continents between 06/2013-05/2019, 5,349 (12%) secondary BS cases were identified. Twenty-one outcome benchmarks...

Defining sensitivity, specificity, diagnostic accuracy for detection of colorectal liver metastases in imaging compared to intraoperative assessment. Defining a cutoff, where accuracy of detection is impaired. Prospective single-institution clinical trial (clinicaltrials.gov: NCT01522209). Patients underwent CEUS, MDCT, and 3 Tesla EOB-MRI within 2 weeks preoperatively. Intraoperative palpation, IOUS, and CEIOUS were performed. A patient and lesion-based database was analyzed for accuracy of det...
