BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) has been increasing since it was first reported in 1991. Two international expert consensus conferences on LLR surgery were held in Louisville, KY, USA, in 2008 and in Morioka, Japan, in 2014, respectively. While most initial minimally invasive liver resections were typically done for benign lesions in anterior or left lateral segments, LLR is currently being applied for major anatomic resections, malignancy, cirrhosis, and live donor hepatectomy...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic resection of gastric subepithelial lesions (SELs) located on the posterior wall of the gastric fundus is technically difficult and time-consuming. To facilitate access, we propose performing the laparoscopic procedure with patients in a right lateral decubitus position, rather than the standard supine position. The aim of our study was to compare operative and clinical outcomes for laparoscopic SEL resection performed in either the right lateral decubitus or the traditional supine position...

BACKGROUND: Omega loop gastric bypass is a successful bariatric surgery with numerous favorable circumstances as being basic, effective on weight reduction and treatment of obesity associated metabolic disorder, the short expectation to learn and adapt, and the simplicity of correction and inversion. However, there are arguments about the possibility of biliary reflux and/or the potential danger of gastroesophageal malignancy after the procedure. METHODS: Fifty patients experiencing morbid obesity with body mass index >40 or >35 kg/m(2) with two related comorbidities, for example, diabetes type II, hypertension, or dyslipidemia, underwent omega loop gastric bypass with a follow-up period up to 18 months, investigating for any symptom of reflux infection by upper gastrointestinal tract endoscopy and pH metry...

The medical profession continues to learn about the ways in which simulations can help to improve education and training. In addition, simulation is constantly evaluated regarding the many ways it can help to improve the abilities of surgeons throughout their course of training and practice. The goal of this study is to review the importance of reflection on clinical practice in situating surgeons as lifelong learners and explore the role that simulation can play in that process. As surgical trainees work to acquire basic necessary skills, simulations are often used to help new learners with such things as knowledge of procedural steps and development of psychomotor techniques...

BACKGROUND: Around 70% of children with neurodisability (ND) present pharyngeal neuromuscular incoordination and severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD). METHODS: This is a pilot study with the Robotic-assisted minimally invasive total esophagogastric dissociation (TOGD). RESULTS: We included 4 patients, 2 males and 2 females, with ND and severe GORD refractory to medical treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Pharmacological management of GORD is often unsuccessful and antireflux surgery is common, but it has a high failure rate with symptom recurrence, requiring re-do surgery...

The current healthcare environment demands optimization of patient outcomes in addition to maximal cost efficiency. Restrictions on resident work hours have placed limitations on the amount of time that trainee physicians can spend on patient care. For the surgery resident, the consequence is less time spent in the operating room under the supervision of a senior surgeon, the cornerstone of Halsted's approach to resident surgeon education. The use of simulation in graduate medical education has gained significant traction as a way to provide trainees with exposure to various techniques and procedures before use on the general patient population...
