INTRODUCTION: In the last decades, the use of minimally invasive surgery has dramatically increased for the treatment of rectal cancer. However, no clear evidence exists on the role of laparoscopy for locally advanced rectal cancer, especially for cT4 tumors, after neoadjuvant therapy. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A literature search was performed on Embase, Medline, and Cochrane databases to identify relevant studies published up to November 2017 analyzing the outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for locally advanced rectal cancer...

Ville Sallinen, Panu Mentula
Laparoscopic appendectomy has practically replaced open surgery. Appendectomy, i.e. surgical excision of the appendix, is one of the most common procedures of a specializing surgeon, and serves to help learn the basics of laparoscopy - first by following and later independently performing the operation. Properative preparation, precise diagnosis, correct surgical technique and follow-up treatment are the cornerstones of successful care. The anatomy of the patient must be considered in the placement of trocars...

Infertility occurs in up to 54% of men with bilateral undescended testes. Orchiectomy is considered the best therapeutic approach, especially when cryptorchidism is diagnosed in adulthood, due to a high risk of malignancy. A 33-year-old man was referred with a clinical presentation of empty scrotum and an ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging evaluation of intra-abdominal bilateral cryptorchidism. Follicle-stimulating hormone was 23.20 IU/L, luteinising hormone was 14.10 IU/L, total testosterone was 12...

BACKGROUND: In order to improve the surgical treatment of rectal cancer, robot-assisted laparoscopy has been introduced. The robot has gained widespread use; however, the scientific basis for treatment of rectal cancer is still unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether robot-assisted laparoscopic rectal resection cause less perioperative pain than standard laparoscopic resection measured by the numerical rating scale (NRS score) as well as morphine consumption. METHODS: Fifty-one patients were randomized to either laparoscopic or robot-assisted rectal resection at the Department of Surgery at Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark...

It is important for practitioners to recognize that there are special considerations when performing gynecologic surgery in a pediatric or adolescent patient. A provider must be familiar with differences in anatomy, physiology, surgical technique, and psychosocial concerns. This can be challenging for a provider who does not routinely operate on patients in this population. A minimally invasive surgical approach is preferred in the pediatric and adolescent patient whenever possible. While a good command of laparoscopy in the adult patient is certainly a useful skill when operating on pediatric and adolescent patients, there are technical adaptations and challenges to consider...

While the 'best pancreatic anastomosis technique' debate is going during Whipple procedure, the laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy lately began to appear more and more often in the medical literature. All the popular anastomosis techniques used in open pancreas surgery are being experienced in laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy. However, when they were adapted to laparoscopy, their implementation was not technically easy, and assistance of robotic surgery was sometimes required at the pancreatic anastomosis stage of the procedure...

Background: Increased awareness of leiomyosarcoma (LMS) risk during myomectomy or hysterectomy is essential. Objective and correct reasoning should prevail on any decision regarding the extent and type of surgery to employ. The anticipated risk of a sarcoma after myoma or uterus morcellation is low, and the frequency of leiomyosarcoma especially in women below the age of 40 is very rare. The prevalence data has a wide range and is therefore not reliable. The European Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) initiated a survey among its members looking into the frequency of morcellated leiomyosarcoma after endoscopic surgery...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare life-threatening forms of cancer that may arise anywhere in the GI tract. Herein, we aimed to review the literature to describe the incidence, management, and outcomes of GISTs. We conducted a traditional narrative review using PubMed and EMBASE, searching for English-language publications for GISTs between January 2001 and January 2016 using keywords "gastrointestinal" "stromal tumors." Among 4582 retrieved articles, 50 articles were relevant over the last 15 years...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative leaks develop in a low percentage of patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), representing a rare yet devastating postoperative complication increasing morbidity and hospital stay. Leaks can become collections and may be very difficult to manage. Several therapeutic options with variable results, including surgical and nonsurgical methods have been described. Endoscopic abscess septotomy is an alternative method recently performed by a few centers reporting efficacy and safety outcomes...
