BACKGROUND: Prosthetic-related infection and erosion occurring after a laparoscopic ventral rectopexy (LVR) are rare complications, and their importance is often underestimated. The aim of this study was to compare the incidence rate and surgical management of these complications in LVR patients with polyester (PE) or polypropylene (PP) prostheses. METHODS: From January 2004 to June 2012, 149 patients underwent LVR with PE and 176 underwent LVR with PP. Surgical management and rate of infectious and erosive prosthesis-related complications, depending on the type of prosthesis, were described and compared...

The results of the Hubble trial, a randomised controlled trial comparing haemorrhoidal artery ligation with rubber band ligation for early-grade prolapsing haemorrhoids, are discussed. The difficulties in defining treatment success are debated along with the trial design highlighting the pitfalls of previous research. A finding that haemorrhoidal artery ligation is not necessarily superior to cheap alternatives has implications for current practice and future commissioning of surgeons.

PURPOSE: Transanal total mesorectal excision (taTME) requires specific technical expertise, as it is often difficult to ascertain the correct dissection plane. Consequently, one can easily enter an incorrect plane, potentially resulting in bleeding (sidewall or presacral vessels), autonomic nerve injury and urethral injury. We aim to demonstrate specific visual features, which may be encountered during surgery and can guide the surgeon to perform the dissection in the correct plane. METHOD: Specific features of dissection in the correct and incorrect planes are demonstrated in the accompanying video...

BACKGROUND: One hundred consecutive applications of a new clipping device, the OTSC(®) Proctology (Ovesco Endoscopy AG), were analyzed to assess its efficacy for the treatment of complex anorectal fistulas. METHODS: In patients with anorectal fistulas, minimally invasive surgery with the OTSC(®) Proctology system was performed according to a standardized technique: the fistula tract was debrided using a special fistula brush, and the clip was applied on the internal fistula opening...

BACKGROUND: Fistula-in-ano (FIA) in infants differs, in several ways, from FIA in adults. The current review aims to assess FIA in infants less than 2 years old and to illustrate the outcome of different treatment modalities described in the literature. METHODS: An organized search of the English literature over the past 25 years was conducted according to the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses guidelines. Electronic databases and Google Scholar were searched for articles focusing on management of FIA in infants...

Bladder exstrophy is a rare malformation. Ureteral diversion, such as ureterosigmoidostomy or a neorectal bladder, has been described. When the patients reach adulthood, cancer may arise in these reconstructions. Our aim was to perform a systematic review (all languages) of the published literature on neoplasia after urinary diversion and suggested management in cases of cancer. PubMed and Cochrane library were searched for relevant articles published within the last 20 years. All identified articles were reviewed for inclusion...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study was to compare the feasibility, safety and efficacy of the through-the-scope (TTS) stent technique to that of the standard metallic stent technique for the management of malignant colorectal obstruction. METHODS: Fifty-two patients scheduled to receive stent insertion for the management of acute obstructive colorectal cancer were enrolled in our study and divided into a TTS stent group (n = 24) and a standard stent group (n = 28)...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ventral rectopexy has been used to treat male patients with external rectal prolapse, but evidence to support this approach is scarce. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of this new abdominal rectopexy surgical technique in men. METHODS: This was a retrospective multicenter study. Adult male patients who were operated on for external rectal prolapse using ventral rectopexy in five tertiary hospitals in Finland between 2006 and 2014 were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: There are no published data concerning management of patients with exteriorized colonic prolapse (CP) after intersphincteric rectal resection (ISR) and side-to-end coloanal manual anastomosis (CAA) for very low rectal cancer. The aim of the present study was to report our experience in 12 consecutive cases of CP following ISR with CAA. METHODS: From 2006 to 2014, all patients with very low rectal cancer who developed CP after ISR and CAA were reviewed...

For the surgical treatment of Hirschsprung's disease, several surgical techniques are used to resect the distal aganglionic colon. Two frequently used techniques are the Duhamel procedure and the transanal endorectal pull-through procedure. During the '8th Pediatric Colorectal Course' in Nijmegen, November 2015, a workshop was organized to share experiences of both techniques by several experts in the field and to discuss (long term) outcomes. Specifically, the objective of the meeting was to discuss the main controversies in relation to the technical execution of both procedures in order to make an initial assessment of the limitations of available evidence for clinical decision-making and to formulate a set of preliminary recommendations for current clinical care and future research...

Iatrogenic colonic perforations are relatively uncommon but serious complications of diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopies. Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) is an useful approach to the rectum and may be used for repair of a rectal perforation during colonoscopy. A 56-year-old male had an iatrogenic perforation of the rectum during a routine follow-up colonoscopy repaired by TEM with an uneventful and rapid recovery.

Anastomotic leaks are a feared complication of colorectal resections and novel techniques that have the potential to decrease them are still sought. This study aimed to compare the anastomotic leak rates in patients undergoing compression anastomoses versus hand-sewn or stapled anastomoses. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing outcomes of compression versus conventional (hand-sewn and stapled) colorectal anastomosis were collected from MEDLINE, Embase and the Cochrane Library. The quality of the RCTs and the potential risk of bias were assessed...
