This study compared robotic (RR) and laparoscopic resection (LR) for primary gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) of the stomach >5 cm. Twelve consecutive patients who underwent RR from 2012 to 2015 were matched for tumor size and location with 24 patients who underwent LR from 2000 to 2012. The median tumor size was 7.1 cm (range, 5.5 to 11.5). GISTs were resected by wedge resection (91.7%) or distal gastrectomy. The median RR operative time was longer than that of LR (162.5 vs. 130 min, respectively; P=0...

BACKGROUND: Over 90% of women report to be very dissatisfied with the aspect of their breast after bariatric surgery. Breast reconstructive surgeries are often not funded by the National Health Service or private health insurances in many countries and the patient must pay a high economic amount to undergo it. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective randomized clinical trial of patients undergoing bariatric surgery was performed. Patients were randomly assigned into 3 groups: patients undergoing percutaneous electrostimulation of the pectoral muscle combined with specific training (group 1), patients doing the specific training alone (group 2), and patients without any specific treatment (group 3)...

This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of minimal endoscope-assisted thyroidectomy (MEAT) through a retroauricular (RA) approach. Most of the thyroidectomy operative time was accounted for by direct visualization through the RA window, minimizing interference between surgical instruments. Endoscope use was minimized and limited to critical surgical aspects, including preservation of the recurrent laryngeal nerve and parathyroid glands. The recurrent laryngeal nerve was neuromonitored throughout the procedure...

High-resolution manometry (HRM) is the gold-standard diagnostic tool for achalasia of the esophagus. Laparoscopic Heller-Dor technique is the preferred surgical approach with success rate estimated 90%. The use of intraoperative HRM provides real-time estimation of intraluminal esophageal pressures and identifies the exact points of esophageal luminal pressure during laparoscopy. Ten patients with achalasia underwent surgery. All patients preoperatively completed 1 manometric study and Quality of Life questionnaires (EORTC QLQ-C30 version 3...
