BACKGROUND: Retained foreign bodies (RFOs) have substantial clinical and financial consequences. In laparoscopic surgery, RFOs can be a cause of needing to convert a minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedure to an open operation. A coating for surgical models was developed to augment localization of needles using fluorescence appropriate for open and minimally invasive surgeries procedures. METHODS: An epoxy matrix containing both dansyl chloride and indocyanine green was coated as visible and near infrared labels, respectively...

Treatment options for simple renal cyst (SRC) include open surgery, laparoscopy with decortication, or percutaneous aspiration with or without sclerotherapy. Though laparoscopic unroofing achieves better results than percutaneous sclerotherapy, the reported recurrence rate is still up to 19%. Thus, it is necessary to find methods to reduce the recurrence rate.To investigate whether the perirenal pedicled fat tissue wadding technique during retroperitoneal laproscopic deroofing (RLD) of SRC affects the incidence of recurrence...

Study Objectives: Weight loss fails to resolve obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in most patients; however, it is unknown as to whether weight loss differentially affects OSA in the supine compared with nonsupine sleeping positions. We aimed to determine if weight loss in obese patients with OSA results in a greater reduction in the nonsupine apnea/hypopnea index (AHI) compared with the supine AHI, thus converting participants into supine-predominant OSA. Methods: Post hoc analysis of data from a randomized controlled trial assessing the effect of weight loss (bariatric surgery vs...

Leiomyosarcoma, a rare and aggressive retroperitoneal tumor, arises from the smooth muscle of the tunica media. Accurate preoperative diagnosis is rare as the origin is often unclear, and its involvement of the vessels makes biopsy prohibitively dangerous (Maturen et al, 2013(6)). Herein, we describe the laparoscopic dissection of a retroperitoneal renal vein tumor using a robotic approach.

The major aim of surgeons has always been a minimalist approach towards surgery, thereby reducing the complications associated with the surgery. The gold standard treatment for cholelithiasis with cholecystitis is currently the four port laparoscopic cholecystectomy (4 PLC). Recently, a newer technique has been introduced which uses a single port, rather than the four ports, for the removal of the gall bladder laparoscopically; it is known as Single Incision Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (SILC). This is a comparatively minimal approach towards surgery...
