Esophageal surgery has been recognized as very challenging for surgeons and risky for patients. Thoracoscopic approach have proved its benefit in esophageal surgery but has some drawbacks as tremor and limited degrees of freedom, contra-intuitive movements and fulcrum effect of the surgical tools. Robotic technology has been developed with the intent to overcome these limitations of the standard laparoscopy or thoracoscopy. These benefits of robotic procedure are most advantageous when operating in remote areas difficult to reach as in esophageal surgery...

The patient was a 57-year-old woman. Preclinical examination of malignant lymphoma revealed 0-I sp type of early rectal cancer in the upper rectum, 20 cm from the anal margin. Endoscopic mucosal resection was performed and positive deep margins were pathologically diagnosed. Additional intestinal resection with lymph node dissection was deemed necessary, but ABVD therapy was initiated because the clinical stage of the malignant lymphoma was Stage III b or higher. Two months after detecting elevated CEA, S8 liver metastasis was pointed out, and examination of weakness of the right upper limb revealed nodular, multifocal brain metastasis...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leaks after oesophagectomy with tabularised stomach replacement are a significant factor in post-operative mortality and morbidity. Early detection and treatment of this complication allow for improving operative and oncological results. When assessing laboratory values - elevation of inflammatory parameters - complicated interpretation is an issue (systemic inflammatory response syndrome, surgical versus non-surgical complication). Results studying the relationship between C-reactive protein (CRP) and complications following oesophagectomies are inconsistent...

RATIONALE: Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) have been increasingly used and are regarded as suitable alternatives to open esophagectomy. However, few previous reports described minimally invasive esophagectomy using a left-sided approach. PATIENT CONCERNS AND DIAGNOSES: A 71-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of progressive dysphagia. Synchronous double primary thoracic esophageal and left lung cancers were considered before the operation. INTERVENTIONS AND OUTCOMES: A lobectomy and MIE, via a left video-assisted thoracoscopic approach, was performed...

BACKGROUND: The use of laparoscopic and robotic procedures has increased in general surgery. Minimally invasive robotic surgery has made tremendous progress in a relatively short period of time, realizing improvements for both the patient and surgeon. This has led to an increase in the use and development of robotic devices and platforms for general surgery. The purpose of this review is to explore current and emerging surgical robotic technologies in a growing and dynamic environment of research and development...

BACKGROUND: Esophagectomy in situs inversus is challenging. With long-segment supercharged reconstruction, it becomes more perplexing and multidisciplinary surgical skills are needed. Challenges met and the surgical technique used is presented in this case report. METHODS: The case of a 49-year old patient with situs inversus abdominus and a locally advanced distal esophageal adenocarcinoma extending to the stomach is presented. RESULTS: Following neoadjuvant chemotherapy and due to inability to use the stomach as a conduit, a thoracoscopic total esophagogastrectomy with long-segment reconstruction was performed...

AIMS: The existence of malignant mesothelioma in situ (MIS) is often postulated, but there are no accepted morphological criteria for making such a diagnosis. METHODS AND RESULTS: Here we report two cases that appear to be true MIS on the basis of in-situ genomic analysis. In one case the patient had repeated unexplained pleural unilateral effusions. Two thoracoscopies 9 months apart revealed only visually normal pleura. Biopsies from both thoracoscopies showed only a single layer of mildly reactive mesothelial cells...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) is increasingly performed worldwide. Unplanned events during thoracoscopy or laparoscopy can jeopardize the procedure, sometimes necessitating conversion to open surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of unplanned events on early postoperative outcomes after MIE. METHOD: A consecutive group of 303 patients who underwent MIE between January 2011 and December 2015 were reviewed. The patients were allocated to two groups comprising those with (G-UPE, 85 patients) and without unplanned events (G-Regular, 218 patients)...

BACKGROUND: With a mortality estimated at 25% when missed, diaphragmatic injuries due to penetrating thoracoabdominal trauma present a diagnostic challenge for both the radiologist and the surgeon. In the current literature, chest x-ray has a sensitivity of 27-60% for left-sided injuries and only 17% for right-sided injuries while, CT scan has a sensitivity of 14-61% and a specificity of 76-99%. Thoracoscopy using a single lung ventilation is one of the modalities of choice for the diagnosis of these injuries with a specificity of 100% and a sensitivity of 87...

Esophageal cancer is one of the most common malignancies in the world today and the sixth-leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Accurate preoperative staging of esophageal cancer is imperative to the selection of appropriate treatments. Patients with esophageal carcinomas typically undergo a multimodality staging process including noninvasive imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET), as well as endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), which is slightly more invasive...

INTRODUCTION: Minimally invasive esophagectomy is becoming a standard procedure in the treatment of esophageal cancer. We would like to present our experience with Ivor Lewis esophagectomy completed by minimally invasive technique. METHODS: The primary aim of the study was to analyse potential technical difficulties and intraoperative complications of thoracolaparoscopic Ivor Lewis esophagectomy with intrathoracic anastomosis. A secondary aim of the study was to evaluate postoperative complications according to the Clavien-Dindo classification...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to identify patient and treatment characteristics associated with early (in hospital) hernia recurrence after congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair. METHODS: Data from the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group registry were queried from 2007 to 2015. Recurrence of the diaphragmatic hernia after initial repair and prior to death or discharge was determined at the time of reoperation. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) approaches included laparoscopy or thoracoscopy, and open approaches consisted of laparotomy or thoracotomy...

BACKGROUND: The minimally invasive surgery (MIS) approach for congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair remains controversial. Our objective was to compare outcomes and complications of the MIS and open approaches, with risk-stratification of patients based on defect size and key patient characteristics. STUDY DESIGN: The multinational CDH Study Group (CDHSG) registry was queried for the period from 2007 to 2015. Patient demographics and operative details, including the CDHSG Staging System defect size (A to D), were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Oesophageal diverticula are rare outpouchings of the oesophagus which may be classified anatomically as pharyngeal (Zenker's), mid-oesophageal and epiphrenic. While surgery is indicated for symptomatic patients, no consensus exists regarding the optimum technique for non-Zenker's oesophageal diverticula. The aim of this study was to determine the outcome of surgery in patients with non-Zenker's oesophageal diverticula. METHODS: PubMed, MEDLINE and the Cochrane Library (January 1990 to January 2016) were searched for studies which reported outcomes of surgery in patients with non-Zenker's oesophageal diverticula...
