  • Geographical variance in reporting of elective surgery for chronic pancreatitis. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019; 31(3):303-311Baltatzis M, Jegatheeswaran S, Siriwardena AK
  • The selection of optimum surgical procedure from the range of reported operations for chronic pancreatitis (CP) can be difficult. The aim of this study is to explore geographical variation in reporting of elective surgery for CP. A systematic search of the literature was performed using the Scopus database for reports of five selected procedures for CP: duodenum-preserving pancreatic head resecti…
  • Bilateral Thoracoscopic Splanchnotomy to Alleviate Pain in Chronic Pancreatic Disease. [Journal Article]
    Ann Thorac Surg 2016; 101(3):e91-3Bosanquet DC, Wilcox CR, Rasheed A
  • Chronic intractable pain is a common problem in severe pancreatic disease. Bilateral thoracoscopic splanchnotomy, a thoracoscopic neurotomy of the splanchnic nerves, is rarely performed but may provide significant pain relief in these patients. We present a safe strategy that uses prone positioning and two thoracoscopic ports for either hemithorax, permitting easy exposure and simple dissection o…
  • Minimally invasive pancreatic surgery: the new frontier? [Review]
    Curr Gastroenterol Rep 2006; 8(2):132-42Ammori BJ, Baghdadi S
  • Recent advances in minimally invasive pancreatic surgery encompass laparoscopic, retroperitoneoscopic, endoscopic, thoracoscopic, and percutaneous approaches. Applications of endoscopic pancreatic surgery include laparoscopic resection, necrosectomy, drainage of pseudocysts, gastric and biliary bypass, and thoracoscopic splanchnotomy. This review provides an update on laparoscopic pancreatic rese…
  • Localization of intra-abdominal thermoreceptors in the ewe. [Journal Article]
    J Physiol 1972; 222(3):665-7Rawson RO, Quick KP
  • 1. In neutral environmental temperatures, shivering was induced in sheep by intra-ruminal cooling. Shivering was then depressed for a period by intra-abdominal heating. Intra-abdominal heating without ruminal cooling induced panting and a reduction of caval temperatures. Posterior caval temperatures were found to be inappropriate to the responses observed.2. Intra-abdominal heating of sheep in co…
