BACKGROUND: Pectus excavatum and carinatum are two of the most commonly observed chest wall deformities in pediatrics. The standard diagnostic evaluation for these conditions includes either chest radiograph (CXR) or computed tomography (CT). Our research aims to develop a novel and reliable way of quantifying chest wall deformities in the clinic setting without radiation exposure. METHODS: Using a handheld structured light scanner, we created three-dimensional (3D) models of patients with chest wall deformities through an IRB-approved protocol...

INTRODUCTION: Intraoperative imaging, such as ultrasound, provides subsurface anatomical information not seen by standard laparoscopy. Currently, information from the two modalities may only be integrated in the surgeon's mind, an often distracting and inefficient task. The desire to improve intraoperative efficiency has guided the development of a novel, augmented reality (AR) laparoscopic system that integrates, in real time, laparoscopic ultrasound (LUS) images with the laparoscopic video...

BACKGROUND: The standard procedure of lymph node (LN) dissection for rectal or sigmoid colon cancer remains controversial. Many laparoscopic surgeons cut the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) at the root; however, this may cause bowel ischemia around the site of anastomosis. We performed D3 or D2 LN dissection with the preservation of the IMA. The aim of this study was to evaluate the oncologic outcomes of IMA-preserving LN dissection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 142 consecutive patients with upper-rectal or sigmoid colon cancer who underwent laparoscopic LN dissection with the preservation of the IMA...

BACKGROUND: Over the last few decades, robotic surgery with the da Vinci system has become increasingly prevalent. Endocrine surgeons are witnessing a rapid growth in enthusiasm for robotic approaches for treating thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal disease. For carefully selected patients, the robotic system may be the preferred technique, although its use remains controversial and indications are in evolution. The goal of this article is to review current robotic procedures for thyroidectomy, parathyroidectomy, and adrenalectomy, and scrutinize the existing literature for application of these approaches...

BACKGROUND: Intracorporeal anastomosis (IA) in right colectomies shows many advantages over extracorporeal anastomosis (EA). Many difficulties encountered in laparoscopic IA can be overcome with hybrid robot-assisted IA or recently with totally robotic procedures. In the literature, few works have been published comparing laparoscopic, hybrid, and totally robotic right colectomies. The aim of this study is to retrospectively analyze the improvements brought on by the evolution of robotic surgery at our specialized center...

Sung Ryul Lee, Pyoung Jae Park
PURPOSE: In some patients with recurrent inguinal hernias who have undergone previous laparoscopic herniorrhaphy, dissecting the entire posterior wall is difficult due to mesh adhesion. We applied a novel transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) hernioplasty technique that involves closing of the hernia defect and implantation of a newly added mesh while preserving the pre-existing mesh for inguinal hernia recurrence after laparoscopic herniorrhaphy. This study was performed to evaluate this novel technique for treatment of recurrent inguinal hernias...
