Article
3D printing is a novel manufacturing technique that allows surgeons to turn their ideas into reality within the healthcare environment. While surgeons are accustomed to assuming a position of leadership where frontier technologies intersect with patient care, barriers to the uptake of 3D printing include lack of expertise among surgeons, and the pe...

(a) Introduction Airway management is a critical element in anaesthesia, and one of the emergencies feared by all airway specialists is the "cannot intubate, cannot oxygenate" (CICO) scenario. Albeit uncommon, this is life-threatening and can lead to brain damage or death if not managed appropriately. Thus, there is a great demand for simulation tr...

We aimed to evaluate perioperative outcomes in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy with or without a cardiac output goal directed therapy (GDT) algorithm. We conducted a multicentre randomised controlled trial in four high volume hepatobiliary-pancreatic surgery centres. We evaluated whether the additional impact of a intraoperative fluid o...
Article
In this retrospective observational study performed in a high-volume hepatobiliary-pancreatic unit, we evaluated the effect of a surgery-specific goal-directed therapy (GDT) physiologic algorithm on complications and length of hospital stay. We compared patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy with either a standardised Enhanced Recovery Afte...
Article
Practice is required for acquiring procedural proficiency and this can be obtained from clinical practice, or more sensibly, having novices first practice the skill on an inanimate phantom or trainer. Commercially produced phantoms are expensive and 3D printing is becoming more cost effective. In our example, we have used a 3D-printed thoracic spin...
Article
Three-dimensional printing has rapidly become an easily accessible, innovative and versatile technology, with a vast range of applications across a wide range of industries. There has been a recent emergence in the scientific literature relating to its potential application across a multitude of fields within medicine and surgery; however, its use...
Article
Rapid elimination of nitrous oxide from the lungs at the end of inhalational anesthesia dilutes alveolar oxygen, producing "diffusion hypoxia." A similar dilutional effect on accompanying volatile anesthetic agent has not been evaluated and may impact the speed of emergence. Twenty patients undergoing surgery were randomly assigned to receive an an...
Article
In the genitourinary tract, masses in the seminal vesicles, particularly primary tumors, are an unusual event. One must consider all diagnoses including Ewing's sarcoma or its variant, peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PPNET). In this case report we describe a case of PPNET arising from the seminal vesicle. The prognosis of such tumors is...
