These included 3 biliary strictures (1 surgically revised and 2 successfully managed with percutaneous stents), 1 symptomatic portal venous anastomotic
stenosis managed by percutaneous dilatation and subsequent stenting, 1 adhesive bowel obstruction, 1 phrenic nerve palsy requiring thoracoscopic plication, 1 intrahepatic arteriovenous fistula post percutaneous liver biopsy (also successfully managed by embolisation of the arterial component) and 1 HAT.
stricture--The surgically created gastrojejunostomy stoma usually has a diameter of approximately 1 to 2 cm, yet stenosis can occur.
For strictures measuring 2 to 4 cm, we used an excisional augmented anastomotic
1: Algorithm for the management vesicourethral anastomotic
1: 1: Excision and primary anastomosis; 2: Buccal mucosal graft urethroplasty; 3: Augmented anastomotic
urethroplasty; 4: Flap; 5: Flaps +/− Grafts.
Intraoperative adverse events (shearing of urethra or bladder neck, need for revision of VUA tension or placement of additional sutures) and postoperative complications (development of postoperative retention following catheter removal on postoperative day 4 to 5, urinoma formation and anastomotic
strictures) were recorded.
Six patients developed hydronephrosis, most commonly due to uretero-intestinal anastomotic
However, superobese males--those with a BMI of 50 or more--and those with an anastomotic
leak had the greatest incidence of PE (4% in each group).
include statistically significant data showing GORE SEAMGUARD([R]) Bioabsorbable Staple Line Reinforcement, now configured for circular staplers, reduces anastomotic
stricture rate, as well as trends toward anastomotic
bleeding and leak rates, in bariatric surgery.
designs and manufactures automated anastomotic
devices used by surgeons to perform coronary artery bypass (CABG) surgery for both on- and off- pump CABG procedures.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to study Sylys Surgical Sealant as an adjunct to standard closure techniques for the reinforcement and protection of anastomotic
junctions in gastrointestinal surgical procedures.
The researchers identified 44 anastomotic
leaks during the 2-year study, said Dr.
