Foi feito um estudo de revisão sobre a mortalidade na fratura do fêmur proximal em idosos com base nas publicações mais relevantes do período de 1998 a 2002. Foram incluídos 25 artigos relacionados ao assunto, selecionados com base nos bancos de dados Medline e Cochrane, totalizando 24.062 pacientes com mais de 60 anos de idade, que tiveram fratura do fêmur proximal. Quatorze estudos foram prospectivos, oito retrospectivos e três revisões sistemáticas. As taxas médias de mortalidade foram de 5,5% durante a internação hospitalar, 4,7% ao fim de um mês de seguimento, 11,9% com três meses, 10,8% com seis meses, 19,2% com um ano e 24,9% com dois anos. Foram identificados quatro fatores intimamente relacionados com uma maior mortalidade nestes pacientes: idade avançada, grande número de doenças associadas, sexo masculino e presença de deficiências cognitivas. Outros fatores mostraram uma fraca correlação com a mortalidade como capacidade deambulatória prévia, índice de risco anestésico da Sociedade Americana de Anestesia (ASA), anemia, hipoalbuminemia, linfopenia e existência de AVC prévio. Os fatores como tempo prévio à cirurgia, tipo de anestesia utilizada e tipo de osteossíntese empregada não mostraram ter interferência.
Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) has been progressively developed along the past two decades. Despite initial skepticism, improved operative results made laparoscopic approach incorporated to surgical practice and operations increased in frequency and complexity. Evidence supporting LLR comes from case-series, comparative studies and meta-analysis. Despite lack of level 1 evidence, the body of literature is stronger and existing data confirms the safety, feasibility and benefits of laparoscopic approach when compared to open resection. Indications for LLR do not differ from those for open surgery. They include benign and malignant (both primary and metastatic) tumors and living donor liver harvesting. Currently, resection of lesions located on anterolateral segments and left lateral sectionectomy are performed systematically by laparoscopy in hepatobiliary specialized centers. Resection of lesions located on posterosuperior segments (1, 4a, 7, 8) and major liver resections were shown to be feasible but remain technically demanding procedures, which should be reserved to experienced surgeons. Hand-assisted and laparoscopy-assisted procedures appeared to increase the indications of minimally invasive liver surgery and are useful strategies applied to difficult and major resections. LLR proved to be safe for malignant lesions and offers some short-term advantages over open resection. Oncological results including resection margin status and long-term survival were not inferior to open resection. At present, surgical community expects high quality studies to base the already perceived better outcomes achieved by laparoscopy in major centers' practice. Continuous surgical training, as well as new technologies should augment the application of laparoscopic liver surgery. Future applicability of new technologies such as robot assistance and image-guided surgery is still under investigation.
Preoperative strategies to increase liver volume are effective in achieving resectability of HCC. TACE + PVE is as safe as PVL/PVE providing higher OS. ALPPS is associated with a higher risk of PHLF, major complications, and mortality. RE despite the small experience seems to present similar resection rate and OS as TACE + PVE with higher rate of major complications.
Hepatocellular adenoma should be regarded as an excellent indication for pure LLR. Pure LLR is safe and feasible and should be considered the standard of care for the treatment of HA when performed by surgeons with experience in liver and laparoscopic surgery.
Intrahepatic lymphatic invasion is a significant prognostic factor. Other mechanisms of invasion, although frequently observed, are not related to recurrence or survival, suggesting that the lymphatic system is the main route for dissemination of CRCLM. Furthermore, immunohistochemical detection of intrahepatic lymphatic invasion might be of value in clinical practice.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
