Should Delayed Cholecystectomy Following Acute Calculous Cholecystitis Be Discouraged in a Resource-restricted Setting?

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.006
Pages: 
388–92
Synopsis: 
Even in a resource-restricted setting, delayed cholecystectomy following acute calculous cholecystitis results in delays in definitive management with ensuing complications during the waiting period. Early cholecystectomy should be encouraged.

ABSTRACT

Background: Early cholecystectomy for acute calculous cholecystitis (ACC) reduces hospital stay and complications during the waiting period. The purpose of this study is to establish the patterns of management of ACC at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) and to evaluate the advantages of early versus delayed cholecystectomy.

Colorectal Anastomotic Leakage at the University Hospital of the West Indies – An Analysis of Risk Factors

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.014
Synopsis: 
This analysis of colorectal anastomoses at a tertiary institution in Jamaica demonstrates acceptable leak and mortality rates. No modifiable risk factors were identified as contributing to anastomotic leaks.
ABSTRACT
 
Background: Anastomotic leakage remains a concern in general surgical practice. The significance lies in the resultant abdominal sepsis, related morbidity and mortality, risk of anastomotic loss, permanent stoma creation and the effect on local recurrence and overall patient survival in colorectal cancer cases.
