BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment of achalasia fails in 10%-20% of patients. The most frequent responsible cause is the performance of an incomplete myotomy at primary surgery. The treatment when the failure happens is not well defined. In this study, we review and evaluate the possible treatments to be carried out when surgical myotomy fails. We define its benefits and results, with the purpose of defining a therapeutic algorithm. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The systematic review was performed following the guidelines established by the Meta-analysis of Observational Studies in Epidemiology statement...

Achalasia cardia is an oesophageal motility disorder characterised by aperistalsis and failure of relaxation of the lower oesophageal sphincter. The management is predominantly palliative with focus on addressing the sphincter that involves either pneumatic dilatation or Heller myotomy which relieves dysphagia in the majority of the cases. End-stage achalasia (ESA) is characterised by failed myotomy, massively dilated and tortuous oesophagus with nutritional deterioration due to progressive dysphagia and vomiting...

The development of bowel-sparing techniques (strictureplasties) for extended stricturing Crohn's disease (CD) and the increased use of minimally invasive surgery (wound sparing) represent the two most important improvements in inflammatory bowel disease surgery from the origin. Nevertheless, the minimally invasive approach for extended stricturing forms is usually avoided primarily because of difficulties in performing complex intracorporeal sutures. We describe a totally intracorporeal robotic ileocecal resection with a yet described modified side-to-side isoperistaltic strictureplasty for an extended ileocecal CD...

A 46-year-old man was referred to our department due to chronic chest pain. A computed tomography showed an exophytic image arising from 5th rib that was projected on the middle lobule. The patient underwent an exploratory videothoracoscopic because we couldn't discard lung compromise. A corneal-like lesion emerging from the inner side of the 5th rib was revealed. Complete video-assited resection was done. Histopathology examination revealed a desmoplastic fibroblastoma. To our knowledge this is the first case of desmoplastic fibroblastoma arising from a rib and the second case published in all literature of chest wall involvement...

Desmoid tumours are locally aggressive tumours occurring either spontaneously or in familial conditions. History of trauma is invariably present with surgical trauma being a common cause. Port site desmoid tumours are extremely rare conditions. Inadequate treatment results in high recurrence rate and substantial morbidity. Reconstruction, if required, by the appropriate technique is vital to avoid an incisional hernia. Adjuvant therapy may be useful in large locally advanced or recurrent tumours. We describe a young female with large port site desmoid tumour following laparoscopic cholecystectomy managed with wide local excision and mesh placement...

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a generally accepted method for treatment of patients with the end-stage renal disease. A larger proportion of PD patients transfer to haemodialysis every year than the converse. Many of the underlying causes of transfer to haemodialysis are preventable. Infectious complications still remain the most common reason for transfer of PD patients to haemodialysis, catheter-related problems are the second most common cause. For PD to be effective it is very important to provide a quality peritoneal access with the insertion of PD catheter with minimum complications...

INTRODUCTION: The fear of pleural adhesions and densely stuck lymph nodes in India, a country where tuberculosis is endemic, is one major factor keeping our surgeons away from video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy. In this paper, we aim to report our experience with performing VATS lobectomy in 102 cases using a standardised three-port anterior approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between March 2012 and September 2016, we performed 102 VATS lobectomies...

BACKGROUND: Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) emerged as a new alternative method in minimally invasive techniques. Although a very small number of studies have compared the physiologic response in NOTES to laparoscopy, the results remain controversial. AIM: This experimental animal study aims to evaluate the intraoperative cardiovascular and respiratory effects of pure transluminal natural orifice surgery and conventional laparoscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty female pigs (Sus scrofa domesticus) equally divided into two study groups were assigned to either pure natural orifice transluminal endoscopic techniques (Group 1) or conventional laparoscopic surgery (Group 2) and monitored intraoperatively in terms of heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP) and O2saturation (SpO2) for 1 h...

Curative endoscopic resection of non-ampullary duodenal lesions, although possible, is challenging. In recent years, although a novel surgical technique named laparoscopic-endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS), which combines laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques, has made the resection of nonampullary duodenal lesions relatively easier, closure of the defect is still controversial. We report two cases of the duodenal lesion which were closed using a novel technique for primary closure utilising the free wall of the duodenum...

Laparoscopic and robotic hernia surgery offers advantages over open herniorrhaphy including faster recover and lower wound infection but is associated with rare but serious complications such as visceral injury and intestinal obstruction. We describe two cases of small bowel obstruction with strangulation that occurred shortly after routine robotic hernia surgery. We define this rare type of strangulating internal hernia as a peritoneal pocket hernia and call attention to its diagnosis and management.

An 82-year-old woman was diagnosed with cholecystitis with a right-sided round ligament. We planned a single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Based on the findings of fluorescent cholangiography, the running course of the common bile duct was confirmed before dissection of Calot's triangle, and the confluence between the cystic duct and the common bile duct was exposed after the dissection of Calot's triangle. The planned surgery was successful. The operative time and intraoperative blood loss were 157 min and 2 mL, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a risk factor for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and venous thromboembolism (VTE). VTE is the most common cause of mortality in patients undergoing bariatric surgery. There is considerable variation in practice regarding methods, dosages and duration of prophylaxis in this patient population. Most of the literature is based on Western patients and specific guidelines for Asians do not exist. METHODS: We conducted a web-based survey amongst 11 surgeons from high-volume centres in Asia regarding their DVT prophylaxis measures in patients undergoing bariatric surgery...

Bariatric surgery can be safely combined with laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) repair. In case of large ventral hernias, laparoendoscopic component separation can also be combined to achieve tension-free closure of the defect. Concomitant bariatric surgery and hernia repair also offer the additional benefit of reduction in recurrence of hernias as obesity, one of the risk factors, is treated in the process. We present a case of 60-year-old man with a body mass index of 45.3 kg/m2 with a large recurrent ventral hernia...

BACKGROUND: Although the number of reports on laparoscopic hepatic resection (LHR) has increased, studies of long-term outcomes regarding tumor recurrence and patient survival compared to the conventional open approach are limited. We evaluated the long-term survival and feasibility of LHR in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on the clinical data of patients who underwent hepatic resection for primary HCC between August 2000 and December 2013...

INTRODUCTION: Mesh fixation in laparoscopic ventral hernia is accomplished using tacks or tacks with transfascial sutures. This is a painful operation and the pain is believed to be more due to transfascial sutures. We describe a method of transfascial suturing which fixes the mesh securely and probably causes less pain. METHOD: Up to six ports may be necessary, three on each side. A suitable-sized mesh is used and fixed with tacks all around. A 20G spinal needle is passed from the skin through one corner of the mesh...

A 63-year-old man with a history of a conventional cholecystectomy was referred to our department for an incisional subcostal hernia and chronic back pain. Physical examination also showed an umbilical hernia and diastasis recti measuring 6 cm that was confirmed with a computed tomography scan. Subcutaneous video-endoscopic repair was done repairing all defects simultaneously.
