INTRODUCTION: Previous reports of laparoscopic surgery in patients with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunts for intracranial hypertension described shunt-related complications. Thus, the shunts have been considered a contraindication for laparoscopic procedures. However, with the implementation of recent improvements in surgical techniques, perioperative management, and shunt technology, laparoscopic surgery may now be safe in cases with shunts. The aim of the present study was to examine the safety of such procedures based on our own experiences with laparoscopic surgery in patients with CSF shunts...

INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) with ulceration may potentially disseminate into the peritoneal cavity after laparoscopic local wedge resection (full-thickness resection) when the intestinal wall is opened under the aeroperitoneum. To prevent this intraoperative tumor seeding, we developed laparoscopy-assisted full-thickness resection (LAFTR) of the duodenum for GIST with ulceration. Here, we present the preliminary results of LAFTR. METHODS: Three patients with duodenal GIST with ulceration underwent LAFTR...

A 60-year old woman had been hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital for 40 years for schizophrenia. An X-ray was performed when she fell, which showed needles in the abdominal field. After additional examinations and questioning, the patient was diagnosed with needles in the abdominal cavity, which were assumed to have been ingested and to have perforated the GI tract 40 years ago. They were removed by laparoscopic surgery. The needles were found in the omentum and near the left ovary. There were no inflammatory reactions around them...

Both esophageal rupture and esophageal cancer are life-threatening diseases. We report a case of esophageal cancer that occurred after esophageal rupture was treated with thoracoscopic and laparoscopic surgery. A 76-year-old man presented with vomiting followed by epigastric pain and was diagnosed with spontaneous esophageal rupture. Laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery were performed. Primary closure was completed with a fundic patch, and thoracic lavage was performed. Ten months later, his condition was diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma of the abdominal esophagus...

A 43-year-old otherwise healthy woman was found to have a retroperitoneal mass during a routine medical examination and was referred for further evaluation. Abdominal CT scan showed a well-delineated, low-density area that exhibited heterogeneous contrast enhancement. The area measured about 20 mm in size and was to the left of the aorta at the level of the inferior mesenteric artery. MRI showed a mass with heterogeneous hypointensity on T1 -weighted images and heterogeneous hyperintensity on T2 -weighted images...

This report presents a case of a 46-year-old woman in whom contralateral pneumothorax occurred during retroperitoneal laparoscopic donor nephrectomy without any evidence of diaphragmatic injuries. After the start of carbon dioxide-induced pneumoperitoneum, the patient's end-tidal carbon dioxide pressure and heart rate suddenly increased. The surgery was then paused, and a chest X-ray revealed a right pneumothorax accompanied by pneumomediastinum. After a thoracostomy tube was inserted, these symptoms immediately improved...

Congenital esophageal stenosis (CES) is rare and usually manifests in infants as dysphagia, failure to thrive, and food impaction. Dilatation is considered to be the first-line therapy for CES, but the incidence of complications (perforation and mediastinitis) is relatively high. We report two cases of CES treated by thoracoscopic resection without prior dilatation. Both infants recovered without recurrent stenosis and were able to eat solid food soon after surgery. One had postoperative gastroesophageal reflux and eventually required fundoplication...

We report an adult who underwent laparoscopic orchidopexy and transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair. The patient was a 53-year-old man who was referred to our hospital for a bulge and pain in his left inguinal area. An abdominal CT scan revealed that the greater omentum was incarcerated in a left inguinal hernia. The patient underwent emergency laparoscopic surgery immediately. After reduction, he was diagnosed with bilateral cryptorchidism and inguinal hernia. After adequate mobilization, pneumoperitoneum was discontinued, and orchidopexy was performed with the Lichtenstein tension-free hernioplasty...

INTRODUCTION: Despite the availability of various anastomosis techniques, postoperative anastomotic complications such as anastomosis failure and bleeding develop in some patients. Automatic suturing devices have been widely used for gastrointestinal anastomosis. However, overly thick or thin tissue, displacement of tissue, and the creation of a staple-on-staple site may lead to incomplete staple formation. These factors are considered to be related to postoperative complications such as anastomosis failure...

A 30-year-old Japanese woman presented at our hospital with a pancreatic tumor. Contrast-enhanced CT revealed a tumor with a 12-cm diameter in the pancreatic body and tail. In the preoperative setting, endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration permitted a histopathological diagnosis of solid pseudopapillary neoplasm. Twhe patient underwent laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy. Our procedure involved three steps. Firstly, the splenic artery was occluded to block inflow of blood to the tumor...

Synchronous multiple malignant colorectal lesions are rare, and there have been very few studies about one-stage laparoscopic operations in these cases. Here, we evaluated the short-term outcomes of laparoscopy-assisted colectomy (LAC) for synchronous double colorectal cancers. Seven patients underwent one-stage LAC that required two resections and anastomoses in our hospital from 2010 to 2014. We retrospectively examined each patient's background and subsequent surgical outcomes. The median age of patients was 78 years, and the median BMI was 19...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery is a recently innovated urologic surgical procedure. Transumbilical laparoendoscopic single-site adrenalectomy (LESS-A) is technically safe and feasible in patients with benign adrenal tumors. To improve patient counseling and informed consent, we evaluated patient-reported postoperative pain, body image, and cosmetic satisfaction after transumbilical LESS-A. METHODS: We reviewed 24 patients who underwent transumbilical LESS-A and assessed their operative and esthetic outcomes and incisional pain...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy is one of the major treatments for early stage gastric cancer, particularly in the East Asia. In this method, extracorporeal anastomosis is performed via a small laparotomy wound, but excessive tissue traction may be encountered during the anastomotic procedure. Therefore, we developed an original procedure for extracorporeal Billroth-I reconstruction: end-to-end stapling gastroduodenostomy with complete double stapling technique. This procedure aims to reduce the problems related to maneuvers through a small laparotomy...
