It is well known that surgery provokes an inflammatory response. However, the induced inflammatory response to laparoscopic compared with open surgery under combined anesthesia has never been compared following colorectal cancer surgery. We hypothesize that laparoscopic technique under general anesthesia results in a decreased proinflammatory state. We compared cytokines plasma secretion after laparoscopic technique under general anesthesia (LG), open surgery under combined anesthesia (thoracic epidural and general anesthesia) (OGE), and open surgery under general anesthesia as the control group (OG)...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a preferred method of long-term enteral nutritional support. Despite its ease of placement, it has a 4% major complication rate, requiring surgical intervention or hospitalization. Early PEG tube dislodgment can cause peritonitis, requiring emergent laparotomy at significant morbidity and cost. T-fasteners have been used as an adjunct gastropexy, but nearly one third migrate into the abdominal wall within the first 2 weeks. We describe a low-cost, minimally invasive technique using widely available surgical instruments to appose the gastric and abdominal walls...

A 59-year-old asymptomatic man underwent ultrasonography, which revealed gallstones and thickened gallbladder wall. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed a slightly swollen bilocular gallbladder and a soft tissue mass in the fundus site. Segmental adenomyomatosis (ADM) was suspected because numerous fundic cystic lesions were seen on magnetic resonance imaging. Endoscopic ultrasonography revealed numerous Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses (RAS) and a papillary soft tissue shadow surrounded with irregular and remarkably thickened fundic gallbladder wall...

Although high-ligated pedicle of the inferior mesenteric artery is usually kept in the resected specimens, the value of preserving high-ligated pedicle of the inferior mesenteric vein within the resected specimens of the sphincter saving rectal resections for cancer is not well defined. In the current study, patients undergoing open, laparoscopic, and robotic sphincter saving rectal resection for cancer were prospectively included. Lymph node invasion and presence of lymph nodes along the IMV pedicles were analyzed...

We present our experience in managing mesh infection after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. We analyzed 19 patients with extensive mesh infection treated between 2012 and 2017 via laparoscopic mesh excision after preoperative workup. After mesh removal and insertion of a drain into the preperitoneal space, the peritoneal flap was closed with 3/0 absorbable consecutive suture. The operative course in all patients was uneventful. Sigmoidectomy for a fistula was required in 1 patient. Two patients required a second laparoscopic surgery for infection on the contralateral side and residual mesh around the pubic bone...

Radiation exposure during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is known, however, data in relation to radiation usage is unclear. We evaluate radiation exposure using fluoroscopy dose (FD) and time (FT). A prospective analysis of 197 patients undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography was completed. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to determine characteristics associated with higher FD and FT. The mean FT was 307 seconds; the mean FD was 16.5 centigray. On univariate and multivariate analysis, indication of common bile duct stricture and pancreatic stricture, interventions including dilation and the use of plastic stents placement, procedures that were moderately or very difficult, and procedures that used magnification and high-resolution images were associated with higher FD± and longer FT...
