It was a difficult operation due to extensive adhesions. Her abdominal drain is straw-coloured fluid and is 500 mL on day 2. She is clinically stable. Her haemoglobin (HB) is 9 gm% and serum creatinine is 75. Drain fluid creatinine is reported as 90.
Which of the following is not a sign or symptom of urinary tract injury in her case?CorrectIncorrect
2. A 31-year-old para 1 undergoes radical vaginal trachelectomy and laparoscopic bilateral lymph node dissection for early cervical cancer. She presents with paraesthesia over the mons pubis, labia majora and the femoral triangle.
Her symptoms are most likely caused by injury to which of the following?CorrectIncorrect
3. The Smead–Jones closure is a mass closure technique of the anterior abdominal wall using a far–far, near–near approach. The closure is performed using a delayed absorbable suture to include all the abdominal wall structures on the far–far portion and only the anterior fascia on the near–near portion. T is allows good healing without intervening fat or muscle.
Which of the following best describes the rate of fascial dehiscence with running mass closure of the abdomen?CorrectIncorrect
4. Suture materials have different physical properties. Which of the following is the property by which a suture is capable of supporting acute angulation without breaking or opposing excessive resistance?CorrectIncorrect
5. Polydioxanone (PDS) is synthetic, absorbable mono lament surgical suture material. It is particularly useful when a combination of an absorbable suture and extended wound support is desirable.
Which of the following best describes the breaking strength retention (tensile strength) of 3-0 PDS at 6 weeks?CorrectIncorrect
6. A 36-year-old primigravida has an emergency caesarean section for failure to progress following a long period of augmentation and delivers a 4.8 kg baby. Despite various uterotonics, the uterus remains hypotonic and there is bleeding. The haemorrhage stops temporarily with compression. A decision to perform a B-Lynch suture is performed. A suture on a large needle is requested.
Which would be the best suture material to use?CorrectIncorrect
