The incidence of chronic postoperative abdominal pain (CPAP) after abdominal surgery is substantial and decreases overall quality of life. One in three patients report to have pain-related interference with mood, sleep and enjoyment of life and 12% visit the emergency department for pain related symptoms. Previous studies lack data on preoperative health and pain status, or are limited by small patient samples. The aim of this study is to assess risk factors for CPAP and gastrointestinal complaints six months after surgery...

OBJECTIVE: The current shortage of surgeons in rural and smaller communities is predicted to get worse. In this study, we solicited practicing rural surgeons' opinions about the skill set needed in a rural practice in order to inform curriculum development for general surgery residents who intend to embark on rural careers. DESIGN: We developed an online survey consisting of demographic questions and closed- and open-ended questions regarding current practice environment and scope of practice...

The safety and feasibility of 3-D laparoscopy-assisted bowel resection were demonstrated in the management of rectal cancer. However, this procedure's role in the management of patients with diffuse cavernous hemangioma of the rectum has not been evaluated. Here, two patients were diagnosed with diffuse cavernous hemangioma of the rectum by colonoscopy and abdominal imaging. One case underwent pull-through transection and coloanal anastomosis in 3-D laparoscopy-assisted surgery. In another patient, 3-D laparoscopy-assisted abdominoperineal resection was performed...

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA) is the second most common primary liver malignancy with poor survival rates. Surgical resection is the only curative treatment option, yet only a small portion of cases are resectable. In unresectable situations, suggested therapy consists of a systemic chemotherapy regimen with cisplatinum and gemcitabine. Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) has been proposed as an alternative treatment option and may lead to downstaging of unresectable iCCA to surgery. We present a case of a female patient diagnosed with an unresectable iCCA treated with SIRT in order to obtain downstaging...

Endometriosis is a benign complex gynecological condition with high morbidity that affects women of reproductive age. Pelvic adhesion formation represents a serious clinical challenge in the management of patients with endometriosis. Several interventions have been proposed over the last few years aiming to reduce post-operative ovarian adhesions formation. The aim of this study is to summarize the evidence of the efficacy of ovarian suspension in the prevention of post-operative ovarian adhesions formation in women undergoing laparoscopic surgery for stage III-IV endometriosis...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the ultrasound features of benign Brenner tumor in the background of complex clinical and histopathological pictures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients with histologically confirmed benign Brenner tumor of the ovary who were treated in our institution in 2003-2016, and for whom complete imaging, clinical, perioperative and histopathological data were available in the database. Ultrasound findings were drawn from images and reports using terms and definitions of the International Ovarian Tumor Analysis group and pattern recognition description was applied...

BACKGROUND: Securing the surgical margin is the most essential and important task in curative surgery. However, it is difficult to accurately identify the tumor location during laparoscopic surgery for gastric cancer, and existing methods, such as preoperative endoscopic marking with tattooing and clipping, have multiple disadvantages. AIMS: We investigated the feasibility and safety of indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence marking for determining the tumor location during laparoscopic gastrectomy...

BACKGROUND: Splenic flexure (SF) cancer is not a common condition and its treatment is still under discussion. Although laparoscopic surgery is well accepted for the treatment of colon cancer at any stage, complete mesocolon excision (CME) with selective vascular ligation using the laparoscopic approach for SF cancer remains technically demanding and represents a real challenge for surgeons. METHODS: We present a single-institution experience of laparoscopic CME for SF cancer...

OBJECTIVES: To provide a systematic overview of the literature assessing the value of haptic and force feedback in current simulators teaching laparoscopic surgical skills. DATA SOURCES: The databases of Pubmed, Cochrane, Embase, Web of Science, and Google Scholar were searched to retrieve relevant studies published until January 31st, 2017. The search included laparoscopic surgery, simulation, and haptic or force feedback and all relevant synonyms. METHODS: Duplicates were removed, and titles and abstracts screened...

OBJECTIVE: To identify preoperative characteristics to help in selecting laparoscopy or laparotomy in Crohn disease (CD). SUMMARY BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy in CD is associated with high rates of conversion. METHODS: All patients undergoing abdominal surgery for CD in 2004 to 2016 by the senior author. Patients operated by laparoscopy, laparotomy, and converted to open were compared. RESULTS: Four hundred fifty-eight procedures were performed in 427 patients [F:M 1:1; median age = 41 (12-95) yrs], through laparotomy (n = 157, 34%) or laparoscopy (n = 301, 66%)...

Background: Iatrogenic ureteric injury remains a risk in laparoscopic pelvic procedures. Near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging is a promising new technique for enhanced intraoperative visualization of anatomical structures that could improve the safety of laparoscopic surgery. A new dye, IRDye® 800-BK, has been developed for intraoperative visualization of the ureters using NIRF. The present study was a first evaluation of the performance of IRDye® 800-BK for ureteric imaging during NIRF laparoscopy...

The surgical repair of vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) over the last two decades has evolved from the transabdominal/transvaginal route to minimally invasive techniques of laparoscopy and robotic surgery. The indications for laparoscopic repair include supratrigonal fistulae, and stenotic/narrow vaginas that make vaginal access to the fistula site difficult. In the current published literature, comparable results have been reported with open surgery. The initial techniques were performed to simulate the open classic technique described by O'Conor, but with better imaging, exposure and magnification, the modified O'Conor (smaller cystotomy) and the extravesical approaches (no cystotomy) are being performed with comparable results...

PURPOSE: Endometriosis is a debilitating disease with high recurrence rates requiring long-term management. Progestins such as dienogest are used empirically when first symptoms occur and post-surgery to reduce recurrence. This retrospective, practice-based study assessed the efficacy and safety of dienogest in women with endometriosis treated for at least 60 months. METHODS: 37 women (age 39 ± 8 years) with laparoscopically diagnosed endometriosis received dienogest 2 mg orally once daily...

BACKGROUND: The 3D laparoscopy is currently under intensive discussion. At the moment the majority of newly acquired laparoscopy systems include the 3D technique. New 4K systems, which will be offered in combination with 3D, are complicating the decision-making when buying new laparoscopic systems. The aim of the article is to show the advantages and possible limitations of 3D laparoscopy. Furthermore, the position of 3D laparoscopy in the current video market is evaluated. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study was based on an up to date literature search in PubMed...

PURPOSE: Idiopathic intussusception is one of the most common causes of small bowel obstruction in children. To decrease subsequent recurrence and to detect a lead point, an early laparoscopy was performed for children with multiple recurrent ileocolic intussusception. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 2014 and July 2017, a total of 2561 consecutive children with intussusception were treated and followed. There were 110 patients with multiple recurrences, 61 were treated with ileocolic pexy and 49 were not and the results were compared...

OBJECTIVES: literature regarding experience with 3D laparoscopy in urology has remained scanty, and this might be also related to the parallel explosion of robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery. The study aim was to compare 3D versus 2D laparoscopic approaches for urological procedures in perioperative outcomes in a subgroups analysis of studies reporting procedures requiring intracorporeal suturing. MATERIALS AND METHODS: we searched EMBASE and Medline from database inception to September 22, 2017 for studies comparing patients undergoing 2D versus 3D laparoscopic approach for urological procedures...
