BACKGROUND: The indications for laparoscopic gastrectomy for early stomach cancer have spread worldwide, and the short-term outcomes have been favorable. Intraabdominal delta-shaped gastroduodenostomy using endoscopic linear staplers, a technique which was developed by Kanaya et al. is one of the feasible reconstructive procedures. Pure laparoscopic surgery is reported to be associated with several intraoperative and postoperative advantages in comparison with laparoscopy-assisted surgery...

UNLABELLED: The most serious complication after pancreatic surgical procedures is still a postoperative pancreatic fistula. In clinical practice there are various methods to prevent the formation of pancreatic fistula, but none of them is fully efficient. Recently, the role of grafting the round ligament of the liver on the pancreas is emphasized as a promising procedure which reduces the severity and shortens the healing time of postoperative pancreatic fistula. The aim of the study was to assess the impact of grafting a round ligament patch on the pancreatic stump or the area of the pancreatic anastomosis on the severity and healing of pancreatic fistula after surgical treatment of the pancreas (alternatively on prevention of pancreatic fistula formation)...

Hepaticojejunostomy is an important part of many surgical procedures including pancreaticoduodenectomy. Biliary leakage from hepaticojejunostomy may be associated with intraabdominal abscess formation, biliary peritonitis, and even mortality. A 72-year-old female patient was admitted to our hospital with obstructive jaundice. After initial evaluation, she was diagnosed with distal common bile duct obstruction without accurate diagnosis. Before planned pancreaticoduodenectomy, biliary drainage with a T-tube was performed due to the presence of cholangitis...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic appendectomy is now the treatment of choice in uncomplicated appendicitis. To date its importance in the treatment of complicated appendicitis is not clearly defined. METHODS: From January 2005 to June 2013 a total of 1762 patients underwent appendectomy for the suspected diagnosis of appendicitis at our institution. Of these patients 1516 suffered from complicated appendicitis and were enrolled. In total 926 (61 %) underwent open appendectomy (OA) and 590 (39 %) underwent laparoscopic appendectomy (LA)...

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided intervention has been established as a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure for various diseases in adults, but there have been limited reports in pediatric patients. Herein, we report our experience with successful EUS-guided drainage of an intraabdominal abscess in a 1-year-old infant concomitant with disseminated intravascular coagulation. The abscess was punctured via the stomach using a standard, convex-type echoendoscope, and the patient's condition improved after naso-cystic catheter placement...

This review focuses on the laparoscopic approach to gastrointestinal emergencies and its more recent indications. Laparoscopic surgery has a specific place in elective procedures, but that does not apply in emergency situations. In specific emergencies, there is a huge range of indications and different techniques to apply, and not all of them are equally settle. We consider that the most controversial points in minimally invasive procedures are indications in emergency situations due to technical difficulties...

BACKGROUND: The use of laparoscopy for right hemicolectomy has gained popularity allowing the option of a totally laparoscopic intracorporeal anastomosis (IA) for intestinal reconstruction. This technique may alleviate some of the technical limitations that a surgeon faces with a laparoscopic-assisted extracorporeal anastomosis (EA). METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 195 consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic right hemicolectomy by four colorectal surgeons at three institutions from March 2005 to June 2014 was performed...
