BACKGROUND: Spigelian hernia (SH) is a rare entity, but its surgical treatment is essential because of its high complication risk. Laparoscopic approaches have become the option in elective surgery because it has less morbidity and requires a shorter stay. Several laparoscopic techniques have been employed, but there is no gold standard technique for this kind of hernia. We report, in this study, our experience with intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients underwent elective surgery for SH between 2008 and 2015 in a Short-Stay Surgical Unit...

INTRODUCTION: Incisional hernia is one of the main topics in the general surgery since there is not a unanimous consensus concerning to the best surgical methodology to adopt. It seems that prosthetic surgery is the best technique, even if responsible for the development of periprosthetic seroma. The aim of this study is to assess whether the preoperative abnormalities of the bio-humoral parameters may be considered as risk factors for seroma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From July 2016 to July 2017 at the "Policlinico Paolo Giaccone", Palermo, Department of Emergency Surgery, 56 patients included in this study, underwent laparotomic mesh repair...

BACKGROUND: Smaller surgical incisions have recently been introduced in living donor liver procurement. This study used national data from Japan to clarify the present status of surgical incisions in living donor liver procurement. METHODS: A nationwide, questionnaire-based survey related to 3121 donors and recipients was used. Donors were divided into two groups: left lateral segment graft (LLSG) procurement (n=690) and other types (n=2431). Incisions were classified into six types: type I, upper midline and bilateral subcostal; type II, upper midline and right subcostal; type III: upper midline and right subcostal to the right lateral margin of the abdominal rectus muscle; type IV, upper midline without laparoscopy; type V, upper midline with laparoscopy; and type VI, lower abdominal using the full laparoscopic technique...

Gastroschisis is the commonest developmental defect of the anterior abdominal wall in both developed and developing countries. The past 30 years have seen transformational improvements in outcome due to advances in neonatal intensive care and enhanced integration between the disciplines of maternal fetal medicine, neonatology and pediatric surgery. A review of gastroschisis, which emphasizes its epidemiology, multidisciplinary care strategies and contemporary outcomes is timely. Areas covered: This review discusses the current state of knowledge related to prevalence and causation, and postulated embryopathologic mechanisms contributing to the development of gastroschisis...

BACKGROUND: Double gallbladder is a rare biliary anomaly. Perinatal diagnosis of the disorder has been reported in only 6 cases, and in 5 of them the diagnosis was based on ultrasound imaging only. However, the ultrasound technique alone does not provide a sufficiently precise description of cystic ducts and biliary anatomy, an information that is crucial for a correct classification and for a possible future surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: At 21 weeks of gestational age of an uneventful pregnancy in a 38 year old primipara mother, a routine ultrasound screening detected a biliary anomaly in the fetus suggestive of a double gallbladder...

A fast and accurate fusion of intra-operative images with a pre-operative data is a key component of computer-aided interventions which aim at improving the outcomes of the intervention while reducing the patient's discomfort. In this paper, we focus on the problematic of the intra-operative navigation during abdominal surgery, which requires an accurate registration of tissues undergoing large deformations. Such a scenario occurs in the case of partial hepatectomy: to facilitate the access to the pathology, e...

INTRODUCTION: Perioperative mortality rate (POMR) is a suggested indicator for surgical quality worldwide. Currently, POMR is often sampled by convenience; a data-driven approach for calculating sample size has not previously been attempted. We proposed a novel application of a bootstrapping sampling technique to estimate how much data are needed to be collected to reasonably estimate POMR in low-resource countries where 100% data capture is not possible. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Six common procedures in low- and middle-income countries were analysed by using population database in New York and California...

BACKGROUND: Transvaginal surgery is the most minimally invasive surgery for a gynecologic procedure, but it has the limitation of lack of exposure and limited surgical space when utilizing traditional vaginal surgical instrumentation, such as in a hysterectomy for a uterus without descent or for a myomectomy. Transvaginal Nature Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) offers the similar benefits of traditional vaginal surgery, but also expands the horizon of transvaginal surgery by allowing the surgeon to perform procedures that are typically limited to an abdominal approach...

BACKGROUND: The transverse myocutaneous gracilis (TMG) flap is a widely used alternative to abdominal flaps in autologous breast reconstruction. However, secondary procedures for aesthetic refinement are frequently necessary. Herein, we present our experience with an optimized approach in TMG breast reconstruction to enhance aesthetic outcome and to reduce the need for secondary refinements. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 37 immediate or delayed reconstructions with TMG flaps in 34 women, performed between 2009 and 2015...
