Kelly Landeen, Kristin Wempe, Robert Miller
Although endometriosis is a common condition in women of reproductive age, the incidence of endometrioma in prior surgical incision sites is rare.We present a case of an abdominal wall mass in a female patient with a history of obstetrical surgery. The mass was visualized with ultrasound and computerized tomography, removed by wide excision, and identified via frozen section. This case demonstrates the importance of a thorough surgical and obstetrical history in any woman who presents with an abdominal wall mass...

AIM: This meta-analysis aims to compare hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) with conventional laparoscopic surgery (LAS) for colorectal cancer (CRC) in terms of intraoperative, postoperative, and survival outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A systematic literature search with no limits was performed in PubMed, Embase, and Medline. The last search was performed on March 31, 2017. The outcomes of interests included intraoperative outcomes (operative time, blood loss, length of incision, transfusion, conversion, and lymph nodes harvested), postoperative outcomes (length of hospital stay, time to first flatus, time to first bowel movement, postoperative complications, mortality, reoperation, ileus, anastomotic leakage, postoperative bleeding, wound infection, intra-abdominal abscess, urinary complication, cardiopulmonary complication, and readmission), and 5-year survival outcomes...

Microsurgery is a technically demanding field with long learning curves. Robotic-assisted microsurgery has the ability to decrease these learning curves. We, therefore, sought to assess the feasibility of robotic-assisted microvascular surgery in a rat model, and whether this could be translated into a worthwhile skills acquisition exercise for residents. Twenty-eight rats underwent microvascular anastomosis. Procedures were performed by a trained microvascular surgeon with no robotic experience (n = 14), or a trained robotic surgeon with no microvascular experience (n = 14)...

In the delivery room, wrapping a low-birth-weight neonate (defined as ≤2.499 g) in a polyethylene bag reduces the risk of hypothermia. However, extended use of the bag (e.g., during neonatal surgery) might conceivably increase the risk of thermal stress and thus body overheating. Here, we assessed the efficacy of a polyethylene bag in infants assigned to wrap (W) or nonwrap (NW, control) groups during placement of a percutaneous vena cava catheter by applying a new mathematical model that calculates heat exchanges for covered and uncovered body segments...

The present study investigated the incidence, causes, treatment and prevention of limb graft occlusion following endovascular aortic repair (EVAR). A total of 66 cases of abdominal aortic aneurysm receiving EVAR at our department from January 2005 to December 2013 were enrolled. After EVAR, patients received routine antiplatelet therapy of 75 mg PLAVIX for 6 months and then 100 mg Aspirin for another 6 months by oral administration. According to previous clinical experiences, antiplatelet therapy is able to effectively reduce the incidence of iliac occlusion after EVAR...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic hernioplasty has been gaining its popularity in the past decade for its rapid recovery. Single-incision surgery, as its possible advancement, has also received more attention. Traditional laparoscopic surgery with carbon dioxide insufflation precluded patients with underlying cardiovascular or pulmonary disease from minimal invasive surgery. We report our early experience with gasless single-incision laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair via totally extraperitoneal (TEP) approach...

Primary splenic angiosarcoma is rare. A 44-year-old man presented with abdominal distension and malaise for 7 months. Laboratory tests showed anemia. Abdominal ultrasound showed enlargement of the spleen with multiple hypoechoic nodules. These nodules showed progressive enhancement on dynamic enhanced CT. Lymphoma was suspected. FDG PET/CT showed increased nonuniform FDG uptake with SUVmax of 11.6 of the entire spleen. Laparoscopic splenectomy was performed. The pathologic findings were consisted with angiosarcoma with replacement of the spleen...

Minjae Kim, Melanie M Wall, Guohua Li
BACKGROUND: Preoperative risk stratification is a critical element in assessing the risks and benefits of surgery. Prior work has demonstrated that intra-abdominal general surgery patients can be classified based on their comorbidities and risk factors using latent class analysis (LCA), a model-based clustering technique designed to find groups of patients that are similar with respect to characteristics entered into the model. Moreover, the latent risk classes were predictive of 30-day mortality...

OBJECTIVE: Surgery for uterine cervical fibroids is difficult because of restricted surgical access and risks such as intraoperative bleeding or injury to other organs. The internal iliac artery balloon occlusion catheter (IIABOC) provides effective hemostasis for placenta previa and atonic hemorrhage, and is increasingly used in surgery for uterine fibroids for controlling intraoperative hemorrhage. We investigated the efficacy and safety of the IIABOC for controlling intraoperative bleeding in total abdominal hysterectomies (TAH) and abdominal myomectomies (AM) for large cervical fibroids...

Malignant feminizing adrenocortical tumors are exceedingly rare. Their main presentation is gynecomastia. In these estrogen secreting tumors (with or without other adrenocortical hormones) lack of gynecomastia is exceptional as in our case. A 44-year-old man presented with abdominal pain. Radiological assessment revealed a tumor measuring 120 × 95 mm in the retroperitoneal area with numerous metastases. Pathological examination pleaded for an adrenal origin with a Weiss's score of 5. Six months later, the tumor relapsed, and he had a second surgery and was sent for hormone assessment...

Emergency repair of complicated abdominal wall hernias may be associated with worsen outcome and a significant rate of postoperative complications. There is no consensus on management of complicated abdominal hernias. The main matter of debate is about the use of mesh in case of intestinal resection and the type of mesh to be used. Wound infection is the most common complication encountered and represents an immense burden especially in the presence of a mesh. The recurrence rate is an important topic that influences the final outcome...
