Giant splenic artery aneurysm is a rare condition that represents an eminent life threatening for the patient, requiring, therefore, urgent surgical correction. A 61-year-old woman, former smoker, hypertensive, hypercholesterolemic and multipara sought our service because of a large tumor in the mesogastrium, which was an abdominal ultrasound finding. Despite the size of the tumor, the patient was asymptomatic. The angiotomography and the magnetic resonance image of the abdomen were suggestive of giant splenic artery aneurysm with more than 10cm in diameter that was confirmed by an angiography...

We describe the preliminary national experience and the early results of the use of robotic surgery to perform the posterior separation of abdominal wall components by the Transversus Abdominis Release (TAR) technique for the correction of complex defects of the abdominal wall. We performed the procedures between 04/2/2015 and 06/15/2015 and the follow-up time was up to six months, with a minimum of two months. The mean surgical time was five hours and 40 minutes. Two patients required laparoscopic re-intervention, since one developed hernia by peritoneal migration of the mesh and one had mesh extrusion...

Introduction: The use of robots in surgery has been increasingly common today, allowing the emergence of numerous bioethical issues in this area. Objective: To present review of the ethical aspects of robot use in surgery. Method: Search in Pubmed, SciELO and Lilacs crossing the headings "bioethics", "surgery", "ethics", "laparoscopy" and "robotic". Results: Of the citations obtained, were selected 17 articles, which were used for the preparation of the article...

Background: Single anastomosis duodeno-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (SADI-S) was introduced into bariatric surgery by Sanchez-Pernaute et al. as an advancement of the biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch. Aim: To evaluate the SADI-S procedure with regard to weight loss, comorbidity resolution, and complication rate in the super obese population. Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed on initial 72 patients who underwent laparoscopic or robot-assisted laparoscopic SADI-S between December 17th, 2013 and July 29th, 2015...

Background: Intestinal malrotation is a rare congenital anomaly. In adults is very difficult to recognize due to the lack of symptoms. Diagnosis is usually incidental during surgical procedures or at autopsy. Aim: To review the occurrence and recognition of uneventful intestinal malrotation discovered during regular cases of bariatric surgeries. Methods: Were retrospectively reviewed the medical registry of 20,000 cases undergoing bariatric surgery, from January 2002 to January 2016, looking for the occurrence of intestinal malrotation and consequences in the intraoperative technique and immediate evolution of the patients...

INTRODUCTION: Minimally invasive surgery widely used to treat benign disorders of the digestive system, has become the focus of intense study in recent years in the field of surgical oncology. Since then, the experience with this kind of approach has grown, aiming to provide the same oncological outcomes and survival to conventional surgery. Regarding gastric cancer, surgery is still considered the only curative treatment, considering the extent of resection and lymphadenectomy performed...

Negli ultimi anni sono state introdotte in urologia nuove tecniche chirurgiche alcune già applicabili nella pratica clinica, altre ancora in corso di sperimentazione. Quella che ha trovato attualmente applicazione è la LESS (Laparo Endoscopic Single-site Surgery); essa riguarda tutte le metodiche che utilizzano una sola porta (multiaccesso) per eseguire interventi laparoscopici. I vantaggi apparenti di questa metodica rispetto alla laparoscopia tradizionale sono soltanto un dimostrato miglior risultato estetico...

Laparoscopic technique in elective cholecystectomy is the last step in an evolutive time to minimize the abdominal access. From 1st January 2004 to 31th December 2006 we analyzed 5515 cholecystectomy procedures: 4877 laparoscopic cholecystectomy, 635 open cholecystectomy. Complications and supplementary diagnosis have been identified in SDO Lombardia's country database. Morbidity occurred in 82 patients (12.9%) with open technique and 109 patients (2.23%) with laparoscopic technique; mortality occurred in 11 patients (1...

Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is currently the subject of intense debate, even though it provides a series of advantages over open surgery and is feasible and safe. Various studies have shown this technique to be as effective as open repair with a lower recurrence rate. Despite the excellent results of laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias, there are numerous controversies associated with this procedure. These controversies concern the indications and contraindications of the procedure, and technical aspects such as how to create the pneumoperitoneum, perform adhesiolysis, manage the hernia sac, and insert and fix the mesh to the anterior abdominal wall...

INTRODUCTION: Between the external genital exploration and the internal genital direct vision, through laparoscopia, there is a black point which is the pelvic floor; we have to know whether there is a vagina or not, what it is like and where it arrives at. The reason for this research is to present our experience with the transrectal ecography, which allows us a very good exploration of the pelvic floor. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We present 6 patients, the youngest is 16 months old and the oldest is 19 years old, who have a diagnostic of 3 congenital adrenal hyperplasia (HSC), 2 gonadal dysgenesis and 1 vaginal agenesis (S...
