The use of remote optical feedback systems represents a promising approach for minimally invasive, nerve-sparing laser surgery. Autofluorescence properties can be exploited for a fast, robust identification of nervous tissue. With regard to the crucial step towards clinical application, the impact of laser ablation on optical properties in the vicinity of structures of the head and neck has not been investigated up to now. We acquired 24,298 autofluorescence spectra from 135 tissue samples (nine ex vivo tissue types from 15 bisected pig heads) both before and after ER:YAG laser ablation...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Detection of circulating tumor cells in the perioperative period predicts poor prognosis in patients with colorectal cancer. There is only one Food and Drug Administration-approved method for such detection, CellSearch, for which results have been inconsistent. A new immunological method, CytoTrack, has shown promising results in patients with breast cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate detection of circulating tumor cells in the peripheral blood of patients with non-metastatic colorectal cancer with CytoTrack, and investigate if there is a correlation between presence of circulating tumor cells and Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) stage and if surgery itself results in the release of circulating tumor cells...

The incidence of cervical insufficiency is 0.1-1% of all pregnancies and 8% of second trimester losses. After failed vaginal cerclages or in patients with amputated or congenitally abnormal cervices, transabdominal cerclages may be performed. Recent advances allow for use of the da Vinci robot to perform transabdominal cerclages. This case series presents three cases of robotically placed cerclages, performed prior to pregnancy. All patients had experienced prior second trimester losses. Two of the three had previously failed vaginal cerclage placement...

Transmyocardial laser revascularization is an established therapy for refractory coronary artery disease. However, utilization of the technology is not as widespread as expected. This is despite the fact that the efficacy of the technology has been established in multiple prospective randomized trials. Furthermore, only about 5% of transmyocardial laser revascularization cases annually are performed in a minimally invasive fashion. We report a case of a female patient treated in a minimally invasive thoracoscopic fashion...

OBJECTIVE: Although the benefits of minimally invasive valvular surgery are well established, the applicability of extending these techniques to reoperative aortic valve surgery is unknown. We evaluated our experience with a minimally invasive approach to this patient population. METHODS: From January 2010 to September 2015, 21 patients underwent reoperative isolated aortic valve replacement via a minimally invasive approach by a single surgeon. All patients had preoperative evaluation with computerized tomography and coronary catheterization...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review current knowledge regarding diagnosis of nonthyroid orbital disorders with extraocular muscle enlargement. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent publications have focused on immunoglobulin G4-related disease as a possible cause of enlarged extraocular muscles, on patterns of strabismus that raise a clinical suspicion of intramuscular lymphoma, and on surgical techniques to access the muscles for tissue biopsy. SUMMARY: With enlarged extraocular muscles, features to distinguish between competing diagnostic possibilities are based on imaging in the context of history and clinical signs...

BACKGROUND: An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) (pathological enlargement of the aorta) is a condition that can occur as a person ages. It is most commonly seen in men older than 65 years of age. Progressive aneurysm enlargement can lead to rupture and massive internal bleeding, which is fatal unless timely repair can be achieved. Despite improvements in perioperative care, mortality remains high (approximately 50%) after conventional open surgical repair. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), a minimally invasive technique, has been shown to reduce early morbidity and mortality as compared to conventional open surgery for planned AAA repair...

The ARTemis Trial tested standard neoadjuvant chemotherapy±bevacizumab in the treatment of HER2-negative early breast cancer. We compare data from central pathology review with report review and also the reporting behavior of the two central pathologists. Eight hundred women with HER2-negative early invasive breast cancer were recruited. Response to chemotherapy was assessed from local pathology reports for pathological complete response in breast and axillary lymph nodes. Sections from the original core biopsy and surgical excision were centrally reviewed by one of two trial pathologists blinded to the local pathology reports...

We treated a 64-year-old man for rectal cancer with direct invasion to the seminal vesicles and no distant metastases by complete resection with laparoscopy and transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS). We inserted the TAMIS device into the anal canal to above the anorectal ring and dissected to prostate level. High ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery and vein was performed by standard medial laparoscopy. The sigmoid and descending colon were mobilized, and in the postrectal space, we dissected to the space made by TAMIS...

INTRODUCTION: Trocar dislodgment can occur frequently during minimally invasive surgery. Closing the entry port at the fascial layer after the end of a long laparoscopic surgery is time-consuming. Here, I introduce Tehran's Tie, a simple trick to overcome these problems. MATERIALS AND SURGICAL TECHNIQUE: After the first trocar site has been created with the open technique and before the first port is inserted, the fascial wound is grasped with a loop of nylon thread, similar to a transverse matrix suture...

Neck dissection leaves behind an aesthetically unacceptable scar over front of the neck. Various techniques, both endoscopic and robotic, have been tried to avoid this scar. Though comparatively more cases of robotic surgery are reported than endoscopic neck dissection, the cost and availability of robot precludes many patients from getting the benefit of minimally invasive neck dissection (MIND). We performed minimally invasive neck dissection for two carefully selected patients with early oral cancer and cN0...

Better visualisation, accurate resection and avoidance of ventriculotomy associated with use of endoscopic devices during intracardiac surgery has led to increasing interest in their use. The possibility of combining a cardio-endoscopic technique with either minimally invasive or totally endoscopic cardiac surgery provides an incentive for its further development. Several devices have been used, however their uptake has been limited due to uncertainty around their impact on patient outcomes. A systematic review of the literature identified 34 studies, incorporating 54 subjects undergoing treatment of left ventricular tumours, thrombus or hypertrophic myocardium using a cardio-endoscopic technique...

Malignant brain tumor, including the most common type glioblastoma, are histologically heterogeneous and invasive tumors known as the most devastating neoplasms with high morbidity and mortality. Despite multimodal treatment including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy, the disease inevitably recurs and is fatal. This lack of curative options has motivated researchers to explore new treatment strategies and to develop new drug delivery systems (DDSs); however, the unique anatomical, physiological, and pathological features of brain tumors greatly limit the effectiveness of conventional chemotherapy...
