Introduction: The study was conducted to analyze whether the anastomotic urinary leakage (AUL) rate in robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) can be considered as a marker of surgical skill. Material and methods: Post-operative cystograms taken after RARP, performed between 2006 and 2016 at a third-level university urology center, were prospectively collected. Cystograms were scheduled for all patients on post-operative day 6, but were performed over a range from days 4 to 10 (median 6)...

The incidence of parastomal hernias after a permanent stoma is between 50% and 80% depending on the type of stoma, the definition of the hernia (clinical or radiological), and the length of the follow-up. Surgical therapy is complex and involves several techniques with different recurrence rates. We present three cases where we have closed the hernia gap with continuous, non-resorbable, self-retaining sutures with subsequent use of the sandwich technique ('Sandwich-plus-technique'). There were pronounced parastomal hernias in three female patients (mean age was 72 years and the range was 63-78 years) with permanent colostomata...

BACKGROUND: A totally laparoscopic right colectomy could be perceived as a more challenging procedure over a laparoscopic-assisted right colectomy owing to the difficulty of intracorporeal anastomosis and the closure of the enterotomy. The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the barbed auto-locking absorbable suture for the closure of an anastomotic stapler-access enterotomy during a totally laparoscopic right colectomy. METHODS: From January 2010 to April 2016, data from patients who had undergone a laparoscopic right colectomy in 2 different departments of 2 institutions (the Department of General and Minimally Invasive Surgery, San Camillo Hospital in Trento and the Department of Surgical Specialties and Nephrology, University Federico II in Naples) were retrospectively analyzed...

The mechanism of OSA is usually multifactorial and the obstruction in the upper airway is very likely to be multilevel, especially in moderate to severe OSA patients. Therefore, the success of surgery for treatment of OSA depends on the accurate diagnosis of the sites of obstruction and the appropriate selection of procedures to address these sites.

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is now a popular bariatric procedure worldwide with rising prevalence over the last decade. Staple line leak and bleeding are the most dangerous complications of LSG. Staple line reinforcement (SLR) by oversewing the staple line was suggested to reduce the incidence of leak and bleeding. We designed a randomized controlled prospective study to investigate the value of SLR by invaginating the whole staple line using unidirectional absorbable 3/0 V-Loc 180 sutures (Covidien, Mansfield, MA, USA) to no SLR in LSG...

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is recognized as one of the most successful surgical procedures performed today. One of the most common and dreaded complications of TKA is postoperative infection. To prevent infections, it is critical to identify patients at high risk through analyzing their risk factors, and help in addressing them prior to surgery. The effort to prevent infection must be carried through every step of the surgical process, from preoperative counseling to intraoperative measures and postoperative protocols...

Midurethral mesh sling is the most performed incontinence procedure. This hypotheses propose knotless barbed suture could be positioned as a tension-free trans-vaginal sling under the mid-urethra without vaginal incision. Knotless suture sling support and stabilize mid-urethra when intraabdominal pressure increase. This procedure is designed to replace midurethral mesh sling operation, aiming at reducing complications. It is completed in a similar way with retropubic mesh sling procedure, and less invasive...
