BACKGROUND: Left-sided gallbladder without situs viscerum inversus (LSG-woSVI) is a rare congenital anomaly. Clinical features and routine presurgical imaging could miss the anomalous position, thereby producing complications during surgery. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be performed safely, but the risk of bile duct injury (BDI) is greater than in cholecystectomy of the orthotopic gallbladder. We present a retrospective review of all scientific literature for diagnosed cases of LSG-woSVI undergoing cholecystectomy from 1996 to 2014...

Following the introduction of the first laparoscopic liver resection, after ∼25 years, a critical reappraisal seems to be warranted. Liver resection represents the first choice for curing early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) allowing a curative chance also in selected patients with intermediate stage tumors. The criteria for liver resectability by laparoscopy remains the same for open surgery, which is oncological criteria (absence of extrahepatic tumor location; completely resectable R0 resection), anatomic (resectability of involved segment with its own blood surely and biliary drainage; absence of vascular invasion of portal or hepatic veins) and technical (possibility to leave in place a residual volume ≥40%)...

Vascularized lymph node transfers have multiple donor sites with risk of iatrogenic lymphedema. We sought to describe in detail a surgical technique that is safe, reproducible, and efficient in harvesting gastroepiploic vascularized lymph nodes using real-time indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescent imaging. Photographs and video were acquired from a case to depict a step-by-step approach. ICG was endoscopically injected into the submucosa of the greater curvature of the stomach at the outset of the procedure. A laparoscopic harvest of the gastroepiploic vascular pedicle and lymph nodes ensued with the assistance of fluorescent imaging...

This article aims to describe step-by-step technique performed with the aid of a video. We report the performance of an endoscopic approach to the biliary tract on 2 patients who had previously undergone duodenal switch (DS). It was successfully performed a laparoscopic-assisted transenteric endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in both the patients. Although successful experiences with ERCP after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass have been found, few cases of ERCP after DS have been reported. Nevertheless, this is the first study to include a multimedia video with description of details and all technical steps of the transenteric ERCP performed on 2 patients who had previously undergone DS...
