A 73-year-old man with lower abdominal pain was diagnosed at our hospital with sigmoid colon cancer. He had previously undergone radical cystectomy with Indiana pouch construction and gastrectomy to treat bladder cancer and gastric cancer, respectively. We performed a laparoscopic Hartmann's operation with Japanese D3 lymph node dissection. We observed severe adhesion in the abdominal cavity; adhesions between the urostomy and sigmoid colon were particularly severe. The tumor had invaded to the distal rectum, which had adhered to the pubic bone and the previously reconstructed urinary pouch...

Hem-o-lok clips have been widely used in laparoscopic or robot-assisted surgery. We report a case of an incidentally discovered Hem-o-lok migration into the bladder after laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. The patient was a 75-year-old man with localized prostate cancer who underwent laparoscopic radical prostatectomy in July 2009. At 3 postoperative years, follow-up ultrasonography revealed a small round mass in the bladder. No lower urinary tract symptoms were reported, and urinalysis results had never indicated hematuria or pyuria...

A 39 year-old woman with malignant foot melanoma underwent wide excision of the primary tumor with a safety margin and sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for the right inguinal lymph node. SLNB was positive and a computed tomography (CT) scan revealed right iliac lymph node swelling. Positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET-CT) scan of the lymph nodes revealed abnormal uptake of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). We performed a laparoscopic pelvic lymph node obturator, iliac lymph node) dissection. During the operation, several black lymph nodes were observed in the iliac lymph node...

The incidence of small bowel lymphoma (SBL) is increasing worldwide. In contrast to resectable SBL, the treatment of unresectable SBL is still contentious. Here, we report a case of unresectable SBL that was treated by laparoscopic exclusion of the affected intestine before systemic chemotherapy was administered. An 84-year-old man was diagnosed with primary SBL involving extranodal dissemination. The patient received prophylactic surgery, namely exclusion of the affected intestine. This therapy diminishes well-known and life-threatening complications, such as perforation, bleeding, and obstruction, which may still occur after chemotherapy, and it makes the administration of chemotherapy safer...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors of the duodenum are rare. For benign tumors, premalignant lesions, or malignant potential tumors located in the second portion of the duodenum close to the papilla of Vater, pancreaticoduodenectomy is sometimes performed. A case of laparoscopic segmental duodenectomy for a gastrointestinal stromal tumor at the second portion of the duodenum is reported. The surgical procedure was performed as follows: first, the second portion of the duodenum was separated from the pancreatic head; second, the duodenum was cut off with the linear stapler after having confirmed preservation of the papilla by intraoperative endoscopy; and third, reconstruction was carried out by a side-to-side duodenojejunostomy...

Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors are rare, accounting for less than 3% of all pancreatic tumors. Although laparoscopic pancreas-preserving surgery for managing sporadic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors has been described in the literature, laparoscopic total pancreatectomy has rarely been reported. We present a 30-year-old man who was incidentally diagnosed with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 syndrome with parathyroid hyperplasia and a non-functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. He underwent laparoscopic total pancreatectomy with splenectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is a serious complication after gastrectomy for gastric cancer. It is vitally important to detect signs of POPF in the early postoperative period and perform adequate management to avoid patient death. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive indicators of POPF after laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. METHODS: The current study included 197 patients who were pathologically diagnosed with adenocarcinoma and underwent laparoscopic gastrectomy between January 2010 and December 2014 in our hospital...

We report herein our experience with bilateral inguinal hernia surgery for a patient who had previously undergone a Y-shaped vascular graft for an abdominal aortic aneurysm and then right axillary-bilateral femoral artery bypass surgery. Preoperative physical examination and imaging revealed a subcutaneous vascular graft passing from the right axilla through the right flank region and branching at the lower abdomen to reach the femoral areas on both sides. As repair surgery by inguinal incision was considered difficult, we performed laparoscopic surgery...

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...

Hernia repair techniques vary greatly depending upon the setting, surgeons, insurance reimbursement systems, resources, and logistical capabilities. Open mesh repair is the most frequently used technique. Choosing the best technique for inguinal hernia repair is a challenge. There is no single technique to manage every type of hernia. Today, laparoscopy and robotics are at the forefront of advanced surgical tools and offer a range of options for general surgeons who are critically evaluating new procedures...

We treated a 64-year-old man for rectal cancer with direct invasion to the seminal vesicles and no distant metastases by complete resection with laparoscopy and transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS). We inserted the TAMIS device into the anal canal to above the anorectal ring and dissected to prostate level. High ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery and vein was performed by standard medial laparoscopy. The sigmoid and descending colon were mobilized, and in the postrectal space, we dissected to the space made by TAMIS...

REVIEW
George Pei Cheung Yang
Laparoscopic repair for ventral and incisional hernias was first reported in the early 1990s. It uses intraperitoneal only mesh placement to achieve a tension-free repair of the hernia. However, in recent years, there has been greater concern about long-term complication involving intraperitoneal mesh placement. Many case reports and case series have found evidence of mesh adhesion, mesh fistulation, and mesh migration into hollow organs including the esophagus, small bowel, and large bowel, resulting in various major acute abdominal events...

Retrorectal tumors (RT) are uncommon and usually managed by open surgical excision. Laparoscopic excision for RT has been reported in only a small number of papers. We aimed to assess the laparoscopic approach for RT and to discuss the factors that made this procedure difficult. We performed laparoscopic excision using a five-trocar technique for neurogenic RT in three patients. Tumors were successfully excised laparoscopically in two patients. However, the third patient required open conversion because the tumor was strongly adhered to the sacrum and could not be mobilized by dissection, resulting in poor visualization of the dissected site...
