BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Benign duodenal neoplasm is a rare occurrence. Minimally invasive tumor resection and anastomosis formation with an OrVil catheter is a novel approach to treating this disease. In this article, we present a new technique for duodenojejunal anastomosis. This technique was applied in 4 patients with benign distal duodenal tumors who were treated with minimally invasive surgery with robotic assistance. METHODS: In 4 patients, after the removal of distal duodenal masses with a robotic technique, an orifice in the duodenum was opened to allow for the passage of a guidewire...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: A temporary deterioration in renal function during pneumoperitoneum has been reported, but the extent is not known. A new marker for the early detection of renal injury, neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), has been shown to increase in various conditions that affect renal function. This study was conducted to explore detrimental effects of pneumoperitoneum in laparoscopic surgery on renal function by studying levels of urinary NGAL (uNGAL). METHODS: Thirty-two women scheduled to undergo laparoscopic surgery in a gynecology clinic were recruited...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Gastrointestinal cancers are the most frequently occurring cancers worldwide. Diagnosis and removal of polyps during screening endoscopy decreases the prevalence of colon cancer and cancer-related mortality, and it is considered to be the gold standard in gastrointestinal system cancer prevention. Technological innovations in endoscopy have led to revolutionary developments in many areas. Flexible spectral imaging color enhancement (FICE) and narrow-band imaging (NBI) are forms of digital chromoendoscopy and enhance the endoscopic images without the need for a dye...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The mobile cecum is an embryologic abnormality and has been associated with functional colon disease (chronic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome). However, unlike functional disease, the primary treatment is operative, using laparoscopic cecopexy. We compare the epidemiology and pathophysiology of mobile cecum syndrome and functional colon disease and propose diagnostic and treatment guidelines. METHOD: This study was a case-control series of 15 patients who underwent laparoscopic cecopexy...
