INTRODUCTION: Appendicitis is a significant economic and healthcare burden in low-, middle-, and high-income countries. We aimed to determine whether urban and rural patient status would affect outcomes in appendicitis in a combined population regardless of country of economic status. We hypothesize that patients from rural areas and both high- and low-middle-income countries would have disproportionate outcomes and duration of symptoms compared to their urban counterparts. METHODS: Adults (≥18 years) with appendicitis during 2010-2016 in South Africa and USA were reviewed using multi-institutional data...

We studied the effect of acetylsalicylic acid on ROS generation by platelets in patients after surgical interventions and in patients with bronchial asthma was studied. Platelets stimulated with platelet-activating factor are characterized by weak luminol-enhanced chemiluminescence in healthy people and patients after operations with laparoscopic incisions. Addition of platelet activation factor to platelet samples from patients after open abdominal surgery caused intensive chemiluminescence that was suppressed after platelet incubation with acetylsalicylic acid...

Endometriosis is a common chronic disease characterized by growth of the endometrial gland and stroma outside the uterus. Symptoms affect physical, mental and social well-being. Extrapelvic location of endometriosis is very rare. Abdominal wall endometriosis occurs in 0.03%-2% of women with a previous cesarean section or other abdominopelvic operation. The leading symptoms are abdominal nodular mass, pain and cyclic symptomatology. The number of cesarean sections is increasing and so is the incidence of abdominal wall endometriosis as a potential complication of the procedure...

A 52-year-old woman with a history of two parturitions presented with lower abdominal pain. Multi-detector CT of the abdomen showed discontinuity of the sigmoid colon near the broad ligament on the left side. We assigned a provisional diagnosis of an internal hernia progressing through a defect in the broad ligament. SILS revealed a total broad ligament defect on the left side but no signs of ischemic, necrotic bowel. We successfully repaired the broad ligament defect with suturing. At the 2-month follow-up, the patient remained well with no signs of recurrence...

BACKGROUND: Surgeons who perform laparotomy have a number of decisions to make regarding abdominal closure. Material and size of potential suture types varies widely. In addition, surgeons can choose to close the incision in anatomic layers or mass ('en masse'), as well as using either a continuous or interrupted suturing technique, of which there are different styles of each. There is ongoing debate as to which suturing techniques and suture materials are best for achieving definitive wound closure while minimising the risk of short- and long-term complications...

AIM: Hemophilic pseudotumors result from repeated episodes of bleeding into bone, subperiosteum, and soft tissue. Since clotting factors became available, uncontrolled perioperative bleeding is a less significant problem for surgeons in developed countries. However, they are more difficult to come by in China. Additionally, patients often have to undergo surgery for giant masses and suffer complications. We wanted to present our experience in the surgical management of hemophilic pseudotumors over a 40-year period...

The major objective of this study was to describe the use of morcellation for standing laparoscopic cryptorchidectomy in 30 client-owned horses. A second objective was to describe a laparoscopic-assisted standing scrotal technique for removal of a descended testis in unilateral cryptorchids. Morcellation for extraction of abdominal testes is effective, efficient, and well-tolerated. Morcellation enabled safe and straightforward extraction of testes from the abdomen through an approximately 13- to 20-mm incision using a 2-portal technique...

REVIEW
Agnese Giaccone, Piergiorgio Solli, Luca Bertolaccini
The magnetic anchoring guidance system (MAGS) is one of the most promising technological innovations in minimally invasive surgery and consists in two magnetic elements matched through the abdominal or thoracic wall. The internal magnet can be inserted into the abdominal or chest cavity through a small single incision and then moved into position by manipulating the external component. In addition to a video camera system, the inner magnetic platform can house remotely controlled surgical tools thus reducing instruments fencing, a serious inconvenience of the uniportal access...
