Does Division of the Pulmonary Ligaments Affect the Outcomes after Thoracoscopic Lobectomy: A Retrospective Study of 72 Cases

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.592
Synopsis: 
This study aimed to compare the outcomes among patients in whom inferior pulmonary ligaments (IPLs) were preserved or not preserved during superior lobectomy, evaluate the influence of dissecting the IPLs in VATS superior lobectomy on bronchial distortion and the recovery of pulmonary function.

ABSTRACT

Background: Whether dissecting or not the inferior pulmonary ligaments (IPLs) during superior video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy for early stage lung cancer remains controversial.

Objective: To evaluate the influence of dissecting the IPLs in VATS superior lobectomy on bronchial distortion and recovery of pulmonary function.

Use of Axillary Fold, Parallel Double Incision, Minimally Invasive Surgery Combined with Ion Electrocautery for Axillary Bromhidrosis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.017
Synopsis: 
Axillary bromhidrosis is an autosomal dominant genetic disease characterized by unpleasant odor caused by interaction between apocrine gland discharge and bacteria. Many treatments have been developed for axillary bromhidrosis. Surgical resection of the apocrine glands is the most effective and is irreversible, but the risk of postoperative complications is very high. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and adverse effects of a new surgical procedure.

Cerebral Artery Stenosis as a Risk Factor for Post-operative Cognitive Dysfunction

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.539
Synopsis: 
This study estimated that amongst patients 60-80 years of age who underwent elective, non-cardiac surgery, the peri-operative risk factors for post-operative cognitive decline, which occurred in up to 55.6% of the patients, include cerebral artery stenosis, operative time, and time to awakening

ABSTRACT

Objective: The reasons for post-operative cognitive decline (POCD) remain largely unknown. Therefore, we determined the effect of cerebral artery stenosis on post-operative cognitive function in the elderly.

Value of the Serum Galectin 3 in Patients with Hepatocelluar Carcinoma: A Meta-analysis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.532
Synopsis: 
Serum Galectin 3 is a promising diagnostic indicator for some carcinomas. This study estimated the serum Gal-3 in patients with hepatocelluar carcinoma. And learn that the expression of serum Galectin 3 possibility tended to be a bigger biomarker for diagnosis of HCC.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the connection of galectin 3 with HCC risk.

Methods: Publications were searched using PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Chinese databases (including CNKI and WanFang) up to October 2015.

Use of Percutaneous Sonographically Guided Microwave Ablation Therapy to Treat Inoperable Malignant Liver Tumours

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.132
Pages: 
76–80
Synopsis: 
Microwave ablation (MWA) is a technique used to destroy tumours and soft tissues which are considered inoperable. It is also used to treat those patients who are ineligible for surgery. There is considerable efficacy of MWA guided by ultrasound in treating patients with inoperable tumours.

ABSTRACT

Aims:  Microwave ablation (MWA) is a technique which is used to destroy tumours and soft tissues by using microwave energy to create coagulation and localized tissue necrosis. It is used to treat the tumours which are considered to be inoperable and used to treat those patients who are ineligible for surgery due to some factors. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the use of MWA in the treatment of liver cancer.
