MEDICAL ACTIVITY REPORT 2015

INTRODUCTION Starting her life on January 7, 2013, Liv Hospital Ulus is honored to be first in issuing clinical activity report in 2015, similar to 2013 and 2014. While 374.091 patients are admitted in three years, hundreds of specific/complicated cases are treated with mortality and morbidity rates below figures reported in the literature thanks to team play. Liv Hospital is accredited in fields of Colorectal Surgery, Robotic Surgery and Obesity for the first time outside the American continent. Physician staff of Liv issued 120 papers, including 72 papers in 2014 and 48 papers in 2015 – all published in journals indexed by SCI, and 386 international lectures, presentations and conference speeches are held, including 192 in 2014 and 194 in 2015. All these activities not only reinforced prestige of Liv Hospital Ulus in the country, they also made us have a voice at international arena. We are proud and glad that all those knowledge and achievements will be transferred to School of Medicine in 2016.

Best regards, Prof. Oktar AsoÄ&#x;lu, M.D.

MRI, Arterial Spin Labeling Perfusion

RADIOLOGY

ASL perfusion technique is equipped in very scarce MRI devices in our country, but this modality is frequently used at our department, and cutting-edge 3 Tesla MRI device is used for this modality. It is routinely used in differentiating radionecrosis from recurrent tumor, staging tumors and evaluating patients with early stage stroke. No contrast agent is required and sometimes, more successful outcomes can be obtained in comparison with contrast-enhanced perfusion sequences.

CLINICAL ACTIVITIES

Multiparametric MRI scan of Prostate Seventy two years old patient, who has anamnesis of Miles operation due to rectal tumor, had multiparametric prostate MRI scan to investigate underlying cause of high PSA. Multiparametric prostate MRI scan showed two lesions, which are suspicious for tumor, anterior to the gland at right and left sides. Since anal canal of the patient is occluded, anterior percutaneous approach is used to biopsy the gland, and prostate cancer is reported for the biopsy specimen. Accordingly, radical prostatectomy is carried out with robotic surgery method.

Five Ultrasound- and CT-guided biopsies taken with suprapubic approach DIAGNOSIS: PROSTATE; NEEDLE BIOPSY: PROSTATIC ADENOCARCINOMA, GLEASON SCORE: 7 (3+4) LENGTH OF TUMOR / SPECIMEN: 2mm / 66mm (3%) PERINEURAL INVASION IS PRESENT. ICD-O: M8140/3-C61

The device in Radiology Department of Liv Hospital runs imaging studies at sensitivity of 86-100% and diagnostic accuracy of 90-95%. Cutting-edge vessel analysis software is used to evaluate stenosis in coronary arteries. In addition, ventricular function and myocardium can be assessed. Current conditions of stents in coronary arteries are safely evaluated on high-resolution images. Radiation dose can be reduced up to 80 percent in comparison with other devices, if imaging study is performed using this device. All those images are run with cutting-edge 256-slice CT device.

CLINICAL ACTIVITIES

Contrast-enhanced Spectral Mammography (CESM) • Contrast-enhanced

spectral mammography (CESM) device is used in our department, although it is found in limited healthcare facilities in Turkey. Combining digital mammography with contrast enhancement, CESM helps patient and physician with highly accurate results, since imaging quality of this modality is close to that of MRI.

• CESM

is an advantageous technique, since it can be scanned in shorter time relative to MRI, appointment problem is not

faced and it can be used in patients, who cannot have MRI scan due to claustrophobia, pacemaker or orthopedic prosthesis. • CESM

is successfully used in all conditions that require contrast-enhanced MRI scan of breast.

CT Arthrography of Knee The patient with a pacemaker, who is not eligible for MRI scan, had MD CT scan, after intra-articular contrast agent is administered, and next, raw images are reconstructed. A root tear is found on posterior horn of medial meniscus.

In another example image, contrast-enhanced spectral mammography showed no specific finding, although suspicious asymmetrical areas are is observed in dense breast parenchyma on mammography of the patient. Patient is recommended annual follow-up examination and discharged to home, without requirement to control mammography or MRI scan of breast.

Irreversible Electroporation (NANOKNIFE)

CLINICAL ACTIVITIES

Radiofrequency Ablation of Lung

• This method enables ablation of tumor in patients with pancreatic cancer and involvement of mesenteric artery (inoperable). • Operating Principle: High-voltage direct current is delivered to tissue in pulses using bipolar probes and thus, irreversible

micropores are created on membranes of all cells within the ablation area. Cell death is induced. • This method can be applied in limited number of facilities in our country. • First intraoperative procedure is carried out jointly with General Surgery team.

Intra-arterial Yttrium-90 • It is the most important palliative treatment option and offers survival advantage in inoperable primary liver tumors. • It is an important therapeutic method for local management of metastatic diseases in liver, in combination with chemotherapy. • It is successfully used jointly with Nuclear Medicine Department.

Comparing Short-Term Outcomes of Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgeries in Treatment of Rectal Cancer: Robotic Surgery Has Better Oncologic Outcomes MATERIALS AND METHOD: Prospective data of 92 patients, who were undergone curative resection due to primary rectal cancer from January 2013 to February 2016 and gave informed consent, are analyzed. RESULTS: Of study participants, 34 were female and 58 were male. Median age was 57 years (range: 27 to 88 years) and median body mass index (BMI) was 25 (range: 19 to 33). Forty two patients (45.6%) with locally advanced tumor were given neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, while 19 patients (20.6%) received short-term neoadjuvant radiotherapy. Tumor was located in distal rectum in 48 patients (52.1%), mid rectum in 19 patients (19.5%) and proximal rectum in 25 patients (27.1%). Age, gender, BMI, disease stage, neoadjuvant therapy ratio and ASA classification were similar in laparos22

copic and robotic surgery groups (p>0.05). Number of distal tumors in robotic surgery group (42.3%, n = 39) was significantly higher in comparison with laparoscopic surgery group (9.7%, n = 9; p<0.001). Abdominoperineal resection was carried out in 2 patients in each group, and sphincter-preserving surgery ratios were similar in laparoscopic surgery (91.1%) and robotic surgery (96.5%) groups (p>0.05). Transition to open surgery was required in 1 patient in each group (p>0.05). Mean duration of operation was 154.9 ±69.3 minutes in laparoscopic surgery group and minutes in robotic surgery group (p = 0.002). Mean number of lymph nodes excised and involved was 29.4 ±13.3 and 1.9±3.8, respectively, in laparoscopic surgery and 27.4±11.7 and 1.8±4.3, respectively, in robotic surgery groups (p>0.05). Distal margin was negative in all patients. Radial margin was positive in one patient (2.9%) of laparoscopic surgery group, while no radial margin positivity was observed in robotic surgery group. Mesorectal integrity was compromised in one patient (2.9%) of laparoscopic surgery group, but it was intact in all patients of robotic surgery group. Severe perioperative complication rate was 14.7% and 8.6% in laparoscopic and robotic surgery groups, respectively (p>0.05). Anastomosis leakage was identified in 4 patients (11.7%) of laparoscopic surgery group and in 2 patients (3.4%) of robotic surgery group (p>0.05). Mean stay in hospital is 5.5±2.1 and 5.6±3.2 in laparoscopic and robotic surgery groups, respectively (p>0.05).

Total Pelvic Exenteration (TPE), Intraoperative Radiotherapy (IORT) and Composite Bone Resection in 9 Patients with Locally Recurrent Rectal Cancer. METHOD: Nine patients (7 male, 2 female) were undergone TPE with diagnosis of recurrent rectal cancer from 2013 to 2016. IORT (mean 12.5 Gy) is applied to four cases, while hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is given to 2 cases. Composite bone resection is required in five cases due to negative surgical margin. S3 is resected in one case, while S5 is resected in another case and right inferior pubic ramus is resected in one case. RESULTS: Five patients developed complication (ileus in one case, wound infection in three cases and pleural effusion in one case). Hospital mortality is found in none of patients. Median follow-up period is 15 months (range: 2 to 25 months). Two patients died (one in Month 6 and one in Month 10). Seven patients are living, and two patients are given chemotherapy, one due to local recurrence (Month 25) and one due to lung metastases (Month 15). Five patients (Month 2, Month 12, Month 15, and Month 25) are still living in disease-free status. 23

MATERIALS AND METHOD: Prospective data of sequential 22 patients, who are treated with SRS and HIPEC due to PC originating from colorectal cancer (CRC) in our center from January 2013 to January 2015, are reviewed. RESULTS: Twenty patients (8 female and 14 male) are included in analysis. Etiology was colon cancer in 13 patients, rectal cancer in 4 patients and mucinous tumor of appendix vermiformis in 5 patients. Fourteen of peritoneal metastases (63.6%) were synchronous, while 8 (36.4%) were metachronous. Twelve patients (54.5%) received neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Laparoscopic SRS was performed in seven patients (31.8%, while open SRS was carried out in 15 patients (68.2%). For laparoscopic surgery group, etiology was appendix in 4 patients, colon in 2 patients and rectum in one patient. Mean duration of operation was 432Âą191 minutes. Median PCI was 7 (range: 2-27). Complete cytoreduction (CC-0) was achieved in all patients. Perioperative morbidity is observed in six patients (26%): Ileus (n= 3), pleural effusion (n=1), anastomotic leak (n=1) and pelvic abscess (n=1). All complications could be managed with conservative methods, excluding the patient who developed anastomotic leak. No toxicity or perioperative mortality secondary to intraperitoneal chemotherapy is observed. Mean hospital stay is 10.5Âą3.2 days. Recurrent disease is found in 8 patients (34.7%). Four patients died. Three patients are given chemotherapy and one patient is followed up in disease-free status in postoperative period of pelvic exenteration. Median follow-up period is 11 months (range: 1-30) and general and disease-free survival rates are 81.8% and 60.8%, respectively. 24

Robotic Pyeloplasty: Pyeloplasty is preferred for strictures located at junction of kidney and ureter. This procedure can be performed with open, laparoscopic or robotic methods. We use robotic pyeloplasty method in this group of patients due to ease of placing suture, imaging quality and delicacy of surgical instruments. Mean hospitalization is 2 days, mean surgical duration is 60 minutes and surgical success rate is 100% with this method.

Mini Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (MiniPerc): Sometimes, stones measuring 1 cm in size at localization of inferior or middle pole cannot be reached with flexible ureterorenoscope due to abnormal renal anatomy. In this group of patients, a small incision (0.5 cm) is made on back of the patient and stone is removed. In those cases, rate of stone-free status is 100%, mean hospitalization is 2 days and mean surgical duration is 40 minutes.

38

Robotic Radical Prostatectomy: Robotic radical prostatectomy is commonly used worldwide in patients, who are diagnosed with prostate cancer, for radical prostate surgeries. Prostate gland is located at deepest level of pelvic cavity and the gland is surrounded by a large neurovascular plexus. We obtain successful outcomes thanks to imaging quality and delicate moves of devices. Robotic prostate surgeries are performed using DaVinci robot since the foundation of this hospital.

Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery

Correct Assessment in Valve Surgeries Valve surgeries are performed alone or in combination with coronary by-pass surgeries. Native valve tissue is conserved in repair procedures in 30% of our patients. Approximately 50% of prosthetic valves we use are biological valves those do not require use of blood thinner. Robotic surgery methods are successfully used in isolated repairs of mitral valve.

We successfully perform by-pass surgeries in our clinic. Breast artery (internal mammary artery) is prepared and blood supply is bypassed between ribs through an approximately 3-4 cm incision with robotic method. Hybrid approaches are preferred in selected patients.

Little Hearts Congenital heart conditions are successfully treated in our clinic. While anesthesia induction and heart surgery is not possible for children <10 kg in many clinics, these operations can be successfully performed in Cardiovascular Surgery Clinic of Liv Hospital.

New Approaches in Treatment of Keratoconus; Recently, topo-guided laser is started to be used for visual rehabilitation following crosslinking therapy that became popular nowadays in treatment of keratoconus. With topo guided laser therapy, the difference between intact corneal surface and irregularities secondary to corneal disease or trauma is calculated by computer and only these parts are corrected. After corneal surface is smoothened, visual accuracy is increased (R 2). We successfully perform these therapies in our clinic since 2013.

TWe use novel technology from diagnosis to treatment; the devices we use at outpatient clinic and during surgical interventions are products of the latest technology. Here are some examples of our surgical interventions in which complication rates are decreased as advantages of technical equipment and surgical knowledge are combined. Femtosecond Cataract Surgery, Multifocal and Toric Intraocular Lens Implantation; Femtosecond cataract surgery is a technique that is developed recently and increases visual outcomes especially in premium-group lenses (multifocal and multifocal toric*). With this technique, some parts of surgery are performed with femtosecond laser and therefore, placement of lens and the targeted correction become more accurate (R 1). Lenses implanted after cataract surgery eliminate myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Verion device ensures perfect positioning of toric lenses. *Multifocal lenses provide clear near, distant and middle vision without using eyeglasses.

The most important complication of pacemaker implantation is infection. Infections that develop within postoperative Year 1 is related with the operation. Infection rate increased compared to the past. The reason is arising out of more complicated operations, since more complex pacemakers with more cables are started to be used, more run-down batteries are replaced and more worn pacemaker cables are renewed. Mean infection risk in first one year is reported as 1.5%. However, risk of infection increases 5-7 times in three-cable pacemakers and 3-4 times in battery changes. As it can be seen on the table above, a critical number of three-cable pacemakers is implanted and battery changes are made in our hospital. Nevertheless, no pacemaker device infection is seen in our three-year follow-up. Success rate of three-cable pacemaker implantation with transvenous approach is 90% in cardiac resynchronization therapy. Most important cause of failure is inability to place the third cable, which is positioned in left ventricle, due to anatomic difficulties. Three-cable pacemaker implantations are 100% successful in our hospital. 68

INTERNAL MEDICINE

We admitted thousands of both inpatients and outpatients, who have medical conditions ranging from minor diseases to most complex disorders, worldwide to the Department of Internal Medicine of Liv Hospital within past 3 years. For example, we treated lots of patients from many countries such as Germany, France, U.K. United States of America, Romania, Albania, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Syria and Iraq. Usually, patients with more than one medical condition or complex-chronic diseases present to our hospital. Number of patients with chronic diseases increases as the society is getting older. These patients are very susceptible and it is not usually possible to predict which condition will emerge. You may face a problem, while you are making efforts to treat another one, easily resulting with a vicious cycle. A holistic approach is required for patients with chronic diseases. We have lots of colleagues who are specialized and experienced in fields of Gastroenterology, Endocrinology, Nephrology, Cardiology, Pulmonary Medicine, Oncology, Hematology, Rheumatology and Infectious Diseases. Multiple departments work in coordination for patients with systemic disorder.
