The surgical treatment of the intermediate-risk DTC (1-4 cm) remains still controversial. We analyzed the current practice in Italy regarding the surgical management of intermediate-risk unilateral DTC to evaluate risk factors for recurrence and to identify a group of patients to whom propose a total thyroidectomy (TT) vs. hemithyroidectomy (HT). Among 1896 patients operated for thyroid cancer between January 2017 and December 2019, we evaluated 564 (29.7%) patients with unilateral intermediate-...

Aim of doing this review was to give a uniform consensus on prognostic impact of tumor location (hepatic vs peritoneal), liver resection and adjuvant chemotherapy in gall bladder cancer and, to compare them with previous well-studied factors of survival. We systematically review PubMed, Scopus and Cochrane for relevant articles with no date restrictions, language was restricted to English. Those articles were included that had provided Hazard ratio (HR) of survival for T2 gall bladder cancer. We...

Background null Coaching is maturing as a strategy for surgeons' continuous professional development in different types of surgery. Laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (LAP TME) is one of the recognized difficult procedures in colorectal surgery. Aim of this trial is to introduce the surgical coaching as a tool for a continuous technical education of LAP TME for cancer in a consultant surgeon carrier. null Methods null Twelve Italian colorectal surgeons were enrolled as trainees in the AIMS A...

Pilonidal sinus (PS) disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the sacrococcygeal region. Although various methods have been described for surgical treatment, there is no consensus on the best surgical technique. The aim of this study was to present the results of a new advancement flap technique named the "Keystone flap (KSF)" and compared with the Limberg flap (LF) technique in pilonidal sinus surgery. A retrospective review was made of 124 consecutive patients surgically treated for PS dis...

The presence of hepatic vascular anomalies may add challenges to an already difficult surgery such as pancreatoduodenectomy, particularly when performed laparoscopically. Thus, our aim was to assess the impact of an aberrant right hepatic artery (aRHA) on postoperative outcomes during laparoscopic pancreatoduodenectomy (LPD) . Data of patients who underwent LPD were prospectively gathered and retrospectively analyzed. Patients with types III, IV, VI, VII, VIII, and IX anomalies according to Mich...

To validate a previously reported alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) model (including three variables: preoperative image-diagnosed tumor number and size and AFP level) for the prediction of recurrence in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients who have undergone liver resection (LR). This retrospective study enrolled patients who underwent curative LR for newly diagnosed HCC in our institution between 2011 and 2018. The probabilities of overall survival (OS) and recurrence were compared according to the a...

Whether natural orifice specimen extraction surgery (NOSES) could provide beneficial effects in treating elderly patients is still under debate. The aim of the study was to compare the clinical outcomes of transanal NOSES with conventional laparoscopic-assisted resection (LA) in elderly colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. A retrospective analysis from the Second Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University between 2013 and 2017 was performed. Outcomes related to surgery, body image, quality of...

The technical complexity of robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy (RPD) and lack of technical surgical standardization have slowed its widespread application. RPD is only routinely performed in a few highly specialized centers. This study describes in detail the standard steps and core techniques of an experienced robotic center in China. We took advantage of our single experience to provide a step-by-step technique and surgical video of our RPD standardized procedure. We divided RPD into 18 key steps...

Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) still represents the major driver of surgical morbidity after pancreaticoduodenectomy. The purpose of this narrative review was to critically analyze current evidence supporting the use of total pancreatectomy (TP) to prevent the development of POPF in patients with high-risk pancreas, and to explore the role of completion total pancreatectomy (CP) in the management of severe POPF. Considering the encouraging perioperative outcomes, TP may represent a prom...
