BACKGROUND: The use of laparoscopy in managing haemodynamically stable patients with penetrating thoracoabdominal injuries in developed countries is wildly practiced, but in Africa, the use of laparoscopy is still in its infancy stage. We reviewed a single centre experience in using laparoscopy in Africa for management of patients with both isolated diaphragmatic injuries as well as diaphragmatic injuries associated with intra-abdominal injuries requiring intervention. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data of patients presenting with penetrating thoracoabdominal injuries was done...

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...

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...

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in the management of blunt and penetrating pediatric trauma has evolved in the past 30 years. Laparoscopy and thoracoscopy possess high levels of diagnostic accuracy with low associated missed injury rates. Currently available data advocate limiting the use of MIS to blunt or penetrating injuries in the hemodynamically stable child. In the pediatric trauma population, MIS offers both diagnostic and therapeutic potential, as well as reduced postoperative pain, a decreased rate of postoperative complications, shortened hospital stay, and potentially reduced cost...

INTRODUCTION: Bochdalek hernia is a congenital diaphragmatic defect that results from improper fusion of the septum transversum and the pleuroperitoneal folds. It rarely persists asymptomatic until adulthood. The reported incidence is as low as 0.17%. Surgical repair of the defect can be performed through the abdomen or through the chest, and in both cases open or through laparoscopy/thoracoscopy. CASE REPORT: We present 2 cases of fully laparoscopic repair of giant Bochdalek hernia in adults...

Lymphangioma is a rare benign proliferation of lymph vessels in the head and neck, axilla, and rarely the mediastinum. We report on the minimally invasive management of a complex recurrence of lymphangioma involving bilateral chest, mediastinum, and abdomen. Given the complexity, the patient underwent debulking of the lymphangioma, ligation of the cisterna chyli, and repeated percutaneous drainage and sclerosing procedures. This report suggests that the use of combined minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, percutaneous drainage, and sclerosis may be the optimal strategy to manage these complex situations...

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair has recently been gaining popularity and is the first choice in most departments. Loss of space in an undeveloped abdomen may cause serious problems such as difficult visceral reduction and need for conversion or postoperative complications such as abdominal compartment syndrome. A 4-month-old boy with delayed diagnosis of CDH underwent MIS repair via thoracoscopy, but the abdominal space was not large enough to accept the herniated viscera so a wide transverse fasciotomy was performed via laparoscopy and an iatrogenic ventral hernia induced...

The widespread popularity of new surgical technologies such as laparoscopy, thoracoscopy and robotics has led many surgeons to treat esophageal diseases with these methods. The expected benefits of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) mainly include reductions of postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and pain and better cosmetic results. All of these benefits could potentially be of great interest when dealing with the esophagus due to the potentially severe complications that can occur after conventional surgery...
