The laparoscopic approach has gained acceptance in the field of hepatopancreaticobiliary surgery. It offers several advantages including reduced blood loss, reduced postoperative pain, and shorter length of stay. However, long operating times can be associated with surgeon and assistant fatigue and image tremor. Robotic camera holders have been designed to overcome these drawbacks but may come with significant costs. The aim of this study was to economically evaluate their use compared with standard assistants using a single surgeon consecutive series of laparoscopic liver resections from January 2014 to May 2015...

Moyamoya is an idiopathic and progressive disease that leads to occlusion of intracranial arteries. When other methods of revascularization fail, omentum can be used as an indirect bypass to improve cerebral perfusion. Laparoscopic mobilization of a pedicled omental flap with subcutaneous tunneling to the brain has been described in small case series in children. We report our techniques and outcomes in 2 adults with Moyamoya to undergo such a procedure. An omental flap based on the right gastroepiploic artery was created and intraoperative fluorescence imaging using indocyanine green was used to assess the viability of the flap and to guide lengthening of the pedicle...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous electrical neurostimulation of dermatome T6 (PENS T6), associated with a low-caloric diet, has previously demonstrated to achieve a reduction in the appetite perception, inducing a better compliance of the prescribed diet and finally leading to a greater weight loss. Ghrelin has been hypothesized to be implicated in the effect of PENS T6. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of PENS T6 with hypocaloric diet on appetite, weight loss and dietary compliance, and its association with plasma ghrelin levels, in comparison with PENS T6 associated with normocaloric diet, transcutaneous electrical neurostimulation of T11-T12 (placebo) with hypocaloric diet, and only hypocaloric diet...
