INTRODUCTION: Intussusception represents an uncommon cause of intestinal obstruction after Rouxen-Y gastric bypass. Symptoms are not specific and clinical presentation may vary from acute intestinal obstruction with or without bowel necrosis to intermittent or chronic pain. CT scan is the diagnostic test of choice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 38-year-old woman who had undergone RYGBP 5 months prior was admitted to our Emergency Department with acute abdominal pain, alimentary and bilious vomiting, and fever...

Management of abdominal pain in a pregnant patient with a history of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass presents unique challenges. A misdiagnosis or delay in management can result in lethal maternal-fetal outcomes. We present a 30-year-old woman at 21 weeks of pregnancy presented with abdominal pain. She had a history of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass performed 3 years earlier. The clinical examination was remarkable for epigastric pain and tenderness. The vital signs and laboratory examinations were unremarkable...

Acute abdominal pain is a common surgical presentation, and most often, the first line of consideration is to rule out acute appendicitis; this is more so when the patient is an adolescent or within younger age group. In most cases, other differentials are considered before omental torsion. Omental torsion is a cause of acute abdominal pain and sometimes mimics acute appendicitis in its presentation. We present a case of a 14-yr-old boy who presented with acute abdomen with symptoms mimicking acute appendicitis...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery programs (ERP) improve post-operative outcomes in proportion to how fully they are implemented. Maintaining an optimal level of application of all the ER components is thus essential. Our aim was to assess the sustainability of ER surgical components 2 years after their first implementation. METHOD: Patients undergoing elective colorectal resections were included in a prospective database. To retrospectively analyze compliance with ERP over a period of 24 months, the following components were considered: colonic preparation, surgical approach, nasogastric tube omission and absence of abdominal drainage...

A 93-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of respiratorydiscomfort. A chest CT scan indicated aspiration pneumonitis and, simultaneously, intussusception was observed in the splenic flexure region. Abdominal enhance CT scan revealed a tumor in the advanced region of intussusception. Laparoscopy-assisted ileocecal resection was performed. Since the intussusception was difficult to reduce laparoscopically, the ileocecum was mobilized and the intussusception was reduced manually. In the resected specimen, a type 1 tumor was observed in the cecum and histopathologic ally diagnosed as cercal cancer...

A 69-year-old man with right upper quadrant abdominal pain and fever was referred to our hospital. He had a history of asbestosis exposure. Computed tomography(CT)revealed a mass at the right subhepatic space, and an antibiotic was administered after a diagnosis of an abdominal abscess. However, the patient did not respond to the treatment, and finally, exploratory laparoscopy was performed. A sheet of combined white nodules surrounding the right lobe of the liver was found, and the mass was continuous with the covering particles...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgical procedures have revolutionized the world of surgery in the past decades. While laparoscopy, the first minimally invasive surgical technique to be developed, is widely used and has been addressed by several guidelines and recommendations, the implementation of robotic-assisted surgery is still hindered by the lack of consensus documents that support healthcare professionals in the management of this novel surgical procedure. Here we summarize the available evidence and provide expert opinion aimed at improving the implementation and resolution of issues derived from robotic abdominal surgery procedures...

Extra-adrenal myelolipomas (EAMLs) are extremely rare soft tissue tumours that constitute <15% of all myelolipomas. We present a 70-year-old patient with a midline swelling of the anterior abdominal wall. It was clinically diagnosed as an incisional hernia, though the computerized scan indicated an internal hernia. During laparoscopy a soft tissue tumour of the abdominal wall was identified and excised. Pathology confirmed an extra-adrenal myelolipoma of the anterior abdominal wall through the presence of adipocytes and trilineage haematopoetic cell lines...

Intestinal duplication is rare congenital pathology generally diagnosed in infancy or early childhood. Presentation in adults is extremely rare. We present a case of a 36-year-old otherwise healthy female patient without any past medical history. She presented with a month of lower abdominal pain, clinical examination revealed pain and a palpable mass in the lower abdomen. CT scan confirmed a cystic mass dependent of the cecum wall and colonoscopy showed an extrinsic compression of the lateral wall of the ascending colon...

Purpose: Increasing surgical expertise in minimally invasive surgery has allowed laparoscopic surgery to be performed in many abdominal surgeries. Laparoscopic choledochal cyst excision and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy are challenging and sophisticated surgeries because of the difficult anastomosis. Recent advances in robotic surgery have enabled more delicate and precise movements, and Endowrist instruments allow for securing sutures during anastomosis. This study aimed to compare surgical outcomes of laparoscopic and robotic hepaticojejunostomy in choledochal cyst excision...

Vascular laparoscopic injuries are rare (0.2/1000), however, they are associated with 6-13% morbidity and mortality. Commonest sites for catastrophic haemorrhage are the right iliac vessels, inferior vena cava and less commonly the abdominal aorta. The injuries commonly occur at entry using a Veress needle or insertion of trocars. These risks are inherent to all laparoscopic surgery. A systematic approach for managing these includes prompt recognition, communication within the operative team, immediate resuscitation and specific operative strategies for the control of vascular haemorrhage based on the location and severity of the injury...

INTRODUCTION: Recently, magnetic solutions have been proposed to minimize surgical invasiveness. These are comprised of deployable instruments containing magnets which are inserted into the abdominal cavity through a single access point. The manipulation of the internal elements occurs via magnets held on the external surface of the abdominal wall. This technology relies on the magnetic force between the magnets, which is inversely related to the abdominal wall thickness (AWT). The aim of this study was to establish the expected change in AWT from before and after initiation of pneumoperitoneum...
