Background: Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease may occur at various localisations which can be both intra- and extrapancreatic as well as challenging to diagnose by medical imaging. Case Report: A positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging in a 40-year-old woman was performed to monitor a haemangioblastoma. Additionally, it showed findings which were considered to be a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour (pNET) and retroumbilical metastasis. The suspected metastasis was laparoscopically resected; however, pathological evaluation did not lead to a clear categorisation...

Endoscopes extend the eyes of the physician into the patient's body. They are widely used in gastrointestinal (GI) diagnostics and minimally invasive surgery. Endoscopes can be classified into 3 types: rigid, flexible, and capsule endoscopes. Rigid and flexible endoscopes are traditionally held and manipulated by the physician to visualize the region of interest, while capsule endoscopes move passively along with the GI peristalsis. With the advancement of technology, robotic endoscopy has been increasingly developed and accepted...

Until recently, robotic-assisted surgery has exclusively been connected to the name DaVinci®. In 2016, a second robotic system, the Senhance®, became available. To introduce the new robotic system into clinical routine, detailed team training and an integration program were useful. Within the first 6 months, 116 cases were performed with this system. The integration program intended to start with simple and well-standardized clinical cases. We chose inguinal hernia repair using the TAPP (transabdominal preperitoneal) technique as the starting procedure...

REVIEW
Philipp Stiegler, Peter Schemmer
Minimally invasive surgery is standard procedure for many operations. Further refinements include the introduction of robotic surgery which is still an emerging field especially in laparoscopic surgery. Since the successful introduction of the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, the robotic approach in organ transplantation has become of great interest in both the live donor organ retrieval and the recipient operation. Robotic surgery for kidney, liver, and pancreas transplantation is feasible. Over 700 donor nephrectomies and 100 kidney transplantations have been performed already, and robotic surgery is standard in a small number of pioneer centers; however, larger series and most importantly randomized controlled trials for the highest evidence are needed...

Introduction: For a long time, the comprehensive application of minimally invasive techniques in lower gastrointestinal (GI) surgery was substantially impaired by inherent anatomical and technical complexities. Recently, several new techniques such as robotic operating platforms and transanal total mesorectal excision (taTME) have revolutionized the minimally invasive approach. This review aims to depict the current state of the art and evaluates the advantages and drawbacks in regard to perioperative outcome and quality of oncological resection...

Background: The evolution of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) also extends to the field of esophageal surgery and has brought forth the development of several approaches of minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE). Hybrid and total minimally invasive operative techniques have proven beneficial compared to open surgery and are currently evaluated against robotic-assisted minimally invasive esophagectomy (RAMIE). We aim to review the current literature regarding the position of MIE versus RAMIE...

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are cystic neoplasms with the potential for progression to pancreatic cancer. Recognized by the global medical community just over two decades ago, IPMN have gained great epidemiological and clinical relevance thanks to the widespread use of cross-sectional abdominal imaging, which has led to a surge in the number of incidental pancreatic cysts being diagnosed. As our understanding of this disease has improved, we now know that some IPMN have a very elevated risk of cancer and require surgical resection, while others are low-risk lesions and can be followed...

Background: ALPPS (associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy) was introduced only 10 years ago and has gained wide acceptance as a variation of staged procedures in liver surgery. It has been criticized for its high morbidity and mortality, which all centers reported in their initial series. Methods: After a world expert meeting in Hamburg in 2015 where all experts in the field met to discuss this method, caveats were extracted and formulated...

Preoperative estimation of future remnant liver function is critical for major hepatic surgery to avoid postoperative morbidity and mortality. Among several liver function tests, the indocyanine green (ICG) clearance test is still the most popular dynamic method. The usefulness of ICG clearance test parameters, such as ICGR15, KICG, or PDRICG, has been reported by many investigators. The transcutaneous non-invasive pulse dye densitometry system has made the ICG clearance test more convenient and attractive, even in Western countries...

While imaging studies such as computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging allow the volumetric assessment of the liver segments, only indirect information is provided concerning the quality of the liver parenchyma and its actual functional capacity. Assessment of liver function is therefore crucial in the preoperative workup of patients who require extensive liver resection and in whom portal vein embolization is considered. This review deals with the modalities currently available for the measurement of liver function...

Background: Portal vein embolization (PVE) followed by resection and associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) are tools to enable liver resections in small-for-size settings. Methods: A systematic review of the literature and comparison of pitfalls between PVE and resection and after ALPPS stage 1 were performed. Results: Evidence levels were as low as 4 for both procedures. 20 publications were identified with reports on post-PVE or post-ALPPS stage 1 pitfalls...

REVIEW
Danby Kang, Erik Schadde
Background: ALPPS (associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy) was introduced with the promise to reduce posthepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) in extended hepatectomies but has higher morbidity and mortality rates compared to conventional methods of volume enhancement. There are few studies of the incidence of PHLF after ALPPS and little information on how to avoid PHLF by functional testing. It remains unclear what causes the compromise in liver function despite rapid volume gain and if any of the modifications proposed reduce the incidence of PHLF...

REVIEW
Steven Y Huang, Thomas A Aloia
Portal vein embolization (PVE) is associated with a high technical and clinical success rate for induction of future liver remnant hypertrophy prior to surgical resection. The degree of hypertrophy is variable and depends on multiple factors, including technical aspects of the procedure and underlying chronic liver disease. For patients with insufficient liver volume following PVE, adjunctive techniques, such as intra-portal administration of stem cells, dietary supplementation, transarterial embolization, and hepatic vein embolization, are available...

Portal vein embolization (PVE) was first adapted for patients undergoing major hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In these patients, PVE caused hypertrophy of the unaffected liver and increased the volumetric ratio of future liver remnant (FLR) to total liver volume.99m Technetium-galactosyl human serum albumin (99m Tc-GSA) scintigraphy revealed that PVE also induced a shift in hepatic function from the embolized part to the nonembolized part of the liver. Various hepatobiliary malignancies can be treated using PVE, and PVE is increasingly being used to expand the indication for major hepatectomy in patients with initially insufficient FLR volume or function...
