Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on outcomes of cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis: a national cohort study

  •  1 March 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

We found that the surgical management of acute cholecystitis through cholecystectomy had minimal disruptions over pre-pandemic, pandemic, and late-pandemic phases, but identify key differences in rates of comorbidity and disease severity. We also report novel sub-analyses exploring the impact of ethnicity.

How to do a laparoscopic‐assisted endoscopic ‘clean sweep’ for small bowel polyp clearance in Peutz Jeghers syndrome

  •  1 March 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

We demonstrate the technical details of laparoscopic-assisted endoscopic ‘clean sweep’ for small bowel polyp clearance in Peutz Jeghers Syndrome. A ‘clean sweep’ reduces the risk for future recurrences but was previously performed with an open technique. A minimally invasive approach is safe, reduces bowel trauma and has good postoperative outcomes.

Value of the surgical pancreatic duct anatomy and associated outcomes in pancreatic cancer

  •  1 March 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Topographical diversity of pancreatic duct location impacts outcomes in cancer patients. Intraoperative review of pancreatic duct location could help define areas of risk or safety and deliver a personalized surgical approach for patients with beneficial or deleterious anatomical profiles. We think this study provides valuable information to improve surgical management by identifying high-risk patients and delivering a personalized surgical approach with prognosis stratification.
