Historically, invasion of the inferior vena cava (IVC) represented advanced and often unresectable hepatic disease. With surgical and anesthetic innovations, IVC resection and reconstruction have become feasible in selected patients. This review assesses technical variations in reconstructive techniques and post-operative management. A comprehensive literature search was performed according to PRISMA. Inclusion criteria were (i) peer-reviewed articles in English; (ii) at least three cases; (iii)...

BACKGROUND Acute calculous cholecystitis (AC) is a syndrome of right upper quadrant pain, fever, and leukocytosis associated with gallbladder inflammation. In the preoperative planning, the severity of AC should be considered as well as time of onset of symptoms and patient comorbidities. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of an early PCT assessment in the emergency department in predicting the outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for AC. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective, mono-centri...
The clinical impact of the preoperative nutritional status has not fully been understood in an aggressive surgical approach for stage IV colorectal cancer (CRC). The clinical records of 399 patients with stage IV CRC who underwent surgery for the primary tumor were reviewed. The predictive powers of reported nutritional/inflammatory indices of postoperative morbidity were compared, and their correlations with both the short- and long-term outcomes were investigated. Among the 10 tested nutrition...

PURPOSE To describe our personal experience during aclassic complete thyroidectomy adopting both intraoperative neural monitoringand near-infrared autofluorescence. METHODS In October 2021, 20 patients underwent totalthyroidectomy for benign and malignant conditions: 13 patients were affected bymultinodular goiter, 2 by Graves' disease, and 5 by indeterminate lesions (3Tir-3B and 2 Tir-3A). For each patient, intraoperative neural monitoring of therecurrent laryngeal nerve and near-infrared autof...
BACKGROUND In literature, a variety of caval reconstruction techniques for liver transplantation have been reported. The piggyback technique preserves the recipient's caval vein which is directly anastomosed to donor's inferior vena cava (IVC) allowing for the reduction of hemodynamic compromise during liver transplantation. METHODS Herein, we present our standardized step-by-step technique for the realization of a caval one-shot side-to-side anastomosis (OSSSA) using a linear stapler. A Satinsk...

Purpose null Modern non-operative management of diverticulitis consists of a complex therapeutic regimen and is successful in most cases even of complicated diverticulitis. Still, a certain proportion of patients requires urgent surgery due to failure of the conservative approach. This study aims to identify predictors for failure of conservative treatment of complicated diverticulitis with the need for subsequent urgent resection during the acute episode. null Methods null A single-centre retro...

Total pancreatectomy for severe pain in end-stage chronic pancreatitis may be the only option, but with vascular involvement, this is usually too high risk and/or technically not feasible. The purpose of the study was to present the clinical outcomes of a novel procedure in severe chronic pancreatitis complicated by uncontrollable pain and vascular involvement. We describe an in situ near-total pancreatectomy that avoids peripancreatic vascular dissection (Livocado procedure) and report on surgi...

The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate a revised classification system for predicting the difficulty of laparoscopic partial liver resection. Patients who had undergone initial laparoscopic partial liver resection for a solitary lesion from January 2012 to February 2021were classified into two groups according to the type of procedure performed, “scooping-out” versus “cutting.” The participants were then further divided into “small” and “large” subgroups according to the tumor’s dep...

Systemic inflammatory responses play a key role in cancer progression, and detecting the predictive inflammatory response markers is needed. The present study explored inflammatory response markers capable of predicting survival in patients with gastric cancer. We enrolled 264 patients, who underwent curative gastrectomy for clinical stage (cStage) I–III gastric cancer between 2012 and 2015. The cut-off point of eight preoperative inflammatory response markers was determined by receiver operatin...
