AIM: Surgical management of patients with deep endometriosis (DE) of the rectum is difficult. Inflammation and subsequent adhesions due to DE impede access to the lower pelvis and may lead to complications during laparoscopic low anterior resection (LAR). Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) is an alternative to an abdominal approach with potential advantages. The aim of this study was to provide a description of the TAMIS technique and to present the perioperative results of TAMIS and of conventional LAR in patients with DE...

Immediately after lung resection, air tends to collect in the retrosternal part of the chest wall (in supine position), and fluids in its lower part (costodiaphragmatic sinus). Several general thoracic surgery textbooks currently recommend the placement of 2 chest tubes after major pulmonary resections, one anteriorly, to remove air, and another into the posterior and basilar region, to drain fluids. Recently, several authors advocated the placement of a single chest tube. In terms of air and fluid drainage, this technique demonstrated to be as effective as the conventional one after wedge resection or uncomplicated lobectomy...

BACKGROUND: Conventional loop ileostomy (CLI) is a suitable procedure for transitory faecal diversion after colorectal anastomosis, but it causes relevant morbidities (dehydration, discomfort, peristomal infections) and requires a second operation to be closed. We already described an alternative technique of temporary percutaneous ileostomy (TPI), which can be removed without surgery. AIMS: We analyse the outcomes and the costs of the TPI in protecting low colorectal anastomosis in elderly, compared to the CLI...

A temporarily defunctioning stoma, while effective at reducing symptomatic anastomotic leakage after low anterior resection (LAR) of rectal cancer, and its subsequent closure, is associated with significant morbidity. Here, we devised a new tube ileostomy using a biofragmentable anastomosis ring (TIB) with no need for reversal.This is a retrospective cohort study. From June 2011 to March 2015, TIBs were performed on 31 consecutive patients with mid- or low-rectal cancer who underwent elective laparoscopic LARs...

PURPOSE: Pentagonal wedge resection is a technique used to address a wide variety of eyelid pathology. This procedure frequently results in excess skin at the apex of the wound, commonly known as a "dog ear." A variety of methods have been described to address the cutaneous redundancy, the most classic of which is the Burow's triangle repair. The authors present a technique to address the anterior lamellar excess that avoids placement of a vertical scar traversing the pretarsal and preseptal portion of the affected eyelid...

Introduction Functional constipation is a common problem in children. It usually can be managed with laxatives but a small subset of patients develop intolerable cramps and need to be temporarily treated with enemas. The senior author has previously reported: 1) open sigmoid resection as a surgical option, but this did not sufficiently reduce the laxative need, then 2) a transanal approach (with resection of rectosigmoid), but this led to a high rate of soiling due to extensive stretching of the anal canal and loss of the rectal reservoir...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Nephroureterectomy remains the gold standard treatment option for upper tract tumors. However, segmental ureterectomy may be another option in patients with single kidney, borderline renal function or high medical comorbidities. The aim of this video is to assess the feasibility of robotic surgery as a minimally invasive technique in treatment of a high comorbid patient with ureteric tumor. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty-year old male patient, with a medical history of chronic hypertensive and uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus, was referred to our department for treatment of ureteric tumor...

Superior hypogastric plexus (SHG) contains mainly sympathetic and most probably also postganglionic parasympathetic fibers. Thus, surgical damage of SHG may cause autonomic pelvic organ dysfunction (Kraima et al., 2015). As already shown for rectal cancer, preservation of the autonomic nerves is facilitated by robotic surgery and may avoid sexual dysfunctions and voiding disorders (Kim et al., 2015). In this educational video, we demonstrate left lower paraaortic lymph node dissection preserving the SHG using ICG fluorescence to label the lymphatic compartment...

BACKGROUND: The gold standard of rectal surgery is TME and DST anastomosis.1 (-) 6 The division of mesorectum in tumor-specific mesorectal and total mesorectal excisions is one of the most difficult procedures of anterior dissection. We have developed a laparoscopic-assisted anterior dissection technique using the simple Rectum Catcher device (RC) with an intraoperative colonoscopy (CF).7 (,) 8 METHODS: Surgical and oncological outcomes were compared between 99 patients undergoing a laparoscopic approach with the RC and a CF (RCF) and 104 patients undergoing the laparoscopic approach without the RC and without a CF (NRCF)...

BACKGROUND: The subcranial approach is a modification of traditional craniofacial resection. It provides similar broad access to the anterior skull base, but with lower mortality and morbidity. It has been the surgical technique of choice at our institution since 2006 for treating advanced stage sinonasal tumours (American Joint Committee on Cancer stage III or above). This paper reports our experience and outcomes. METHOD AND RESULTS: Eighteen patients underwent subcranial craniofacial resection over a seven-year period, this being combined with a second adjunctive procedure in 89 per cent of cases...

The umbilicus is our first scar. It is the last remain of our life in utero. Besides the umbilical hernia, a common pathology during the first three years of life that rarely requires surgery, there are some rare congenital abnormalities such as gastroschisis and omphalocele, which occur in about 1-5/10,000 births. Gastroschisis is a birth defect of the anterior abdominal wall, through which the fetal intestines freely protrude and are not covered by any membranes. During the 13th week prenatal ultrasound, the umbilical cord can be seen to be properly attached while the intestines float freely in the amniotic fluid...

BACKGROUND: The extralevator approach to abdominoperineal resection is associated with a decreased incidence of rectal perforation and circumferential resection margin positivity translating to lower recurrence rates. The abdominoperineal resection, as such, is an operation associated with poorer outcomes in comparison with low anterior resections, and any improvements in short-term outcomes are likely to be related to surgical technique. Robot assistance in extralevator abdominoperineal resection has shown improvement in these pathologic outcomes...
