Article
Background and aims An opioid-sparing postoperative analgesic regimen following laparoscopic hemicolectomy is optimal to promote minimal postoperative pain, early mobilization, and improved quality of recovery. Various regional anesthesia techniques have been tested to improve postoperative pain management after laparoscopic hemicolectomy. In this...
Article
Full-text available
Background: In colorectal cancer, surgical resection is fundamental for curative treatment. Epidural analgesia mitigates the perioperative physiologic stress response caused by surgery, and reduction in perioperative stress may reduce postoperative complications. Nevertheless, epidural analgesia also causes hypotension and lower limb motor weaknes...
Article
Background Sevoflurane and propofol are commonly used drugs in general anaesthesia. However, their effects on perioperative immune function are incompletely understood. We hypothesised that sevoflurane and propofol differentially affect immune function in healthy individuals. Therefore, we investigated the effect of sevoflurane and propofol on neut...
Article
Background: Postoperative complications are common after colorectal surgery, and possibly related to the type of anaesthesia. We aimed to determine associations between the type of anaesthesia and complications after colorectal cancer surgery using Danish registries. Methods: Patients undergoing colorectal cancer surgery (2004-18) were identifie...
Article
Background: Surgery is the main curative treatment for colorectal cancer. Yet the immunologic and humoral response to surgery may facilitate progression of micro-metastases. It has been suggested that epidural analgesia preserves immune competency and prevents metastasis formation. Hence, the authors tested the hypothesis that epidural analgesia w...
Article
Full-text available
Background The immune system recognizes and destroys cancer cells. However, cancer cells develop mechanisms to avoid detection by expressing cell surface proteins. Specific tumour cell surface proteins (e.g. HLA-G, PD-L1, CDX2) either alone or in combination with the relative presence of immune cells (CD3 and CD8 positive T-cells) in the tumour tis...
Article
Background During colorectal cancer surgery, the immune-modulating effects of inhalation anaesthesia may create a favourable environment for metastasis formation, leading to increased risk of recurrence. Our aim was to assess the association between inhalation vs intravenous anaesthesia and cancer recurrence in patients undergoing colorectal cancer...
Article
Background Emergency laparotomy is associated with high risk of postoperative complications and mortality. Preoperative identification of patients at high risk of adverse outcome is important. The immune response to conditions requiring emergency laparotomy is not understood in detail. The present study describes preoperative blood‐based immune pro...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction: Previous studies have suggested that choice of anaesthesia can affect long-term outcome. In this study, the association between type of anaesthesia and outcomes in terms of survival, recurrence, post-operative complications and recovery after surgery for colorectal cancer was investigated in an Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS)...
Article
Full-text available
The surgical stress response can accelerate clinical metastasis formation. Perioperative glucocorticoids might modulate this response and the metastatic process. We aimed to describe associations between perioperative glucocorticoids and long-term outcomes after cancer surgery. We searched four databases for eligible trials and performed meta-analy...
Article
Aims: Lifestyle risk factors are thought to increase the risk of infection after acute orthopaedic surgery but the evidence is scarce. We aimed to investigate whether smoking, obesity and alcohol overuse are risk factors for the development of infections after surgery for a fracture of the ankle. Patients and methods: We retrospectively reviewed...
Article
Background: Perforated gastroduodenal ulcer carries a high mortality rate. Need for reintervention after surgical repair is associated with worse outcome, but knowledge on risk factors for reintervention is limited. The aim was to identify prognostic risk factors for reintervention after perforated gastroduodenal ulcer in a nationwide cohort. Met...
Article
Risk stratification of patients prior to surgery is important for reduction of postoperative morbidity and mortality. The frailty concept has been put forward as a good predictor of surgical outcomes. Sarcopenia (depletion of muscle mass) can be used to measure frailty. We aimed to systematically review the literature where core muscle size measure...
