INTRODUCTION: To describe a detailed step-by-step approach of our technique to robot-assisted intracorporeal "W" orthotopic ileal neobladder (ICNB).

METHODS: Five patients underwent robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC), extended pelvic lymph node dissection (ePLND) and ICNB. ICNB was divided into 6 key steps to facilitate and enable a detailed analysis and auditing of the technique. No conversion to open surgery was required. Timing for each step was noted. All patients had at least 3 months of follow up.

RESULTS: Mean age was 57 years. Mean overall console and diversion times were 357 and 193 minutes, respectively. None of the patients had any evidence of residual disease following RARC. Four of five patients experienced complications; 3 developed fevers due to urinary tract infection (one required readmission), and 1 patient developed myocardial infarction and required coronary angiography and stenting. Looking at the timing for the individual steps, bowel detubularization and construction of posterior plate were consistently the longest among the key steps (average 46 minutes, 13% of the overall operative time), followed by uretero-ileal anastomosis (37 minutes, 10%), neobladder-urethral anastomosis (23 minutes, 6%) and identification and fixation of the bowel (26 minutes, 7%).

CONCLUSION: We described our step-by-step technique and initial perioperative outcomes of our first five intracorporeal neobladders with "W" configuration This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Causes for end stage renal disease (ESRD) in children can be categorized into urological causes or non-urological causes. We sought to compare the outcomes of urological and non-urological causes of ESRD in children.

METHODS: Patients were divided into two groups: urological causes of ESRD versus non-urological causes of ESRD. All patients and donors had at least 6 months of follow-up. The main outcomes included the effect on complications and renal function. Comparisons were carried out using the chi-square test or the Student t-test. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to define the effect of different variables on the outcome of renal transplantation (Table).

RESULTS: Our study included 123 patients, 91 males. The mean age was 9 years and mean follow up was 46 months. Two-thirds of the patients had non-urological causes of ESRD. Overall survival was 100%, and only one patient needed a graft nephrectomy 3 months after the transplant. The mean estimated glomerular filtration rate was 117 mL/min, and did not differ significantly between the two groups (p = 0.13). Multivariable regression showed that female gender (OR 8.7, 95% CI 2.9-26, p = 0 0.0001) was associated with better renal function, while having a urological cause of ESRD (OR 0.28, CI 0.08-0.98, p = 0 0.05) was associated with worse renal function. Non-urological causes of ESRD were significantly less likely to develop complications following renal transplantation (OR 0.28, CI 0.09-0.89, p = 0 0.03).

CONCLUSION: Female patients with non-urological causes of ESRD are more likely to have better long-term renal functions, and less liable to develop complications following renal transplant.

Hussein, H., and R. Brown, "Hydroxychloroquine and the treatment of Sjogren syndrome, chronic ulcerative stomatitis, and oral lichen planus in the age of COVID-19.", Oral surgery, oral medicine, oral pathology and oral radiology, vol. 131, issue 1, pp. e9-e13, 2021. Abstractarticle_in_journal.pdf

The Food and Drug Administration has recently approved the off-label use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for the treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infections. However, a recent study not only failed to demonstrate HCQ efficacy but also documented a serious side effect of COVID-19 therapy with HCQ: QT prolongation and secondary arrhythmia. HCQ has been used as an off-label drug and deemed safe and effective for the treatment of oral lesions, such as Sjogren syndrome (SS), chronic ulcerative stomatitis (CUS), and oral lichen planus (OLP). Because HCQ may be appropriately used for the off-label treatment of SS, CUS, and OLP, relevant safety concerns regarding HCQ therapy with regard to dosage, drug-to-drug interactions, and QT prolongation and secondary arrhythmia are discussed here. Because of the possibility of decreased pharmacy supplies of HCQ, replacement drugs with respect to patients with SS, CUS, and OLP being successfully treated with HCQ are also discussed.

Overcrowding in emergency departments (EDs) is a serious problem that can harm patients and lead to negative operational and financial performances for hospitals. This paper integrates the Six Sigma methodology with discrete event simulation (DES) to guide improvement decisions, in which we target the reduction of overcrowding in EDs with a special attention on the medical equipment utilization and the influence of changing the medical equipment technology on patients’ waiting time and consequently their satisfaction. The Six Sigma methodology, based on the “Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC)” format, is used to analyze the EDs overcrowding problem, diagnose its causes, and control the performance improvement plans. The DES is used within the “Improve” phase in order to provide a prognosis for the expected performance under the proposed improvement scenarios and to evaluate their effects on the ED performance measures. This research investigates the benefits of the application of the quality improvement methods in the Egyptian healthcare system which has different characteristics compared to developed countries. A case study in a private tertiary hospital is used in the current investigation. We propose process-based modifications that can help reduce the overcrowding problem, increase patient throughput, and reduce patient length of stay. The case study demonstrates the effectiveness of using the integrated Six Sigma-DES approach on reducing the ED crowdedness. The use of DES in the “Improve” phase provides inexpensive assessments of the improvement alternatives and eliminates the troubles associated with real system modifications.
