Tian-Ming Wu, Zhong-Kui Jin, Qiang He, Xin Zhao, Jian-Tao Kou, Hua Fan
This paper discusses variations of laparoscopic transgastric cystogastrostomy in management of retrogastric pancreatic pseudocysts for 8 patients with symptom or pseudocysts (larger than 6 cm) companied with clinical manifestations. Using a Harmonic scalpel, two 3-5-cm incisions were made in the anterior and posterior gastric wall respectively. In the last step, the anterior gastrotomy was closed with an Endo-GIA stapler. All cases were successfully treated without large blood loss and without conversion to open surgery...

BACKGROUND: We prospectively assessed changes in the lower urinary system functions of women with morbid obesity following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and the factors affecting these changes. METHODS: Data from 40 females who had undergone laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy due to morbid obesity (body mass index, BMI ≥ 40 kg/m(2)) between January 2014-2016 at S.B.U. Bursa Yuksek Ihtisas Training and Research Hospital were prospectively evaluated. The presence of comorbidities, onset of obesity, smoking, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) score, pre and 12-month postoperative weights and BMIs, fasting blood glucose (FBG), blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, insulin, homeostatic model assessment-insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) test results, overactive bladder survey (OAB-Q) scores, volume of urination, and Qmax values obtained from uroflowmetry studies were recorded and assessed...

BACKGROUND: The most commonly performed bariatric procedures are laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). There are major differences between LSG and LRYGB during postoperative period. Optimization of the postoperative care may be achieved by using enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol, which allows earlier functional recovery. PURPOSE: The aim was to assess differences in the course of postoperative care conducted in accordance with ERAS protocol among patients after LSG and LRYGB...

BACKGROUND: We present the correlation between excised specimen size in laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and patient demographics, comorbidities, and postoperative weight loss. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to address whether the size of gastric specimen excised during laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy has any correlation with patient demographics, comorbidities, and postoperative percent of excess body weight lost. SETTING: Study was performed at a community teaching hospital in Michigan...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic surgery for patients with portal hypertension is considered to be contraindicated because of the high risk of massive intraoperative hemorrhaging. However, recent reports have shown hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery for devascularization and splenectomy to be a safe and effective method of treating esophagogastric varices with portal hypertension. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of hand-assisted laparoscopic devascularization and splenectomy (HALS Hassab's procedure) for the treatment of esophagogastric varices with portal hypertension...

Minimally invasive hysterectomy is a standard procedure. Different approaches, as laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy, vaginal hysterectomy, and subtotal and total laparoscopic hysterectomy, have been described and evaluated by various investigations as safe and cost-effective methods. In particular, in comparison to abdominal hysterectomy, the minimally invasive methods have undoubted advantages for the patients. The main reason for a primary abdominal hysterectomy or conversion to abdominal hysterectomy during a minimal invasive approach is the uterine size...

OBJECTIVES: To enhance the management of inguinal obstruction, and to present the procedures and results of our surgical strategy for vas deferens obstruction following childhood herniorrhaphy. METHODS: We treated a total of 56 patients diagnosed with obstructive azoospermia following bilateral inguinal herniorrhaphy. First, conventional inguinal open surgery was performed. If the abdominal vas was not identified in the inguinal region, laparoscopy was used to retrieve the deeper abdominal vas deferens, which was obstructed above the internal inguinal ring...

Many different techniques are used to perform laparoscopic appendectomy in terms of locations of trocars and closure of the appendiceal stump. They include mechanical endostaplers, endoligature, metal clips, bipolar endocoagulation, polymeric clips and intracorporeal sutures. The method of choice for appendiceal stump closure should be inexpensive and easy to perform. Non-absorbable polymer clips is an acceptable option for this purpose. Polymeric clips provide considerable cost savings as compared with endoscopic staplers, and are easy to apply in comparison to suture ligature techniques...

INTRODUCTION: Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare congenital anomaly in which the left and right aspects of the thoracic and intra-abdominal organs are inverted, like a mirror image. Surgical procedures in a patients with SIT is difficult as their anatomy is abnormal. In particular, laparoscopic procedures are considered more difficult in patients with SIT because of the mirror-image anatomy.

We present a case that highlights the issues surrounding the delivery of a safe general anaesthetic to a patient with Huntington's disease (HD) and bulbar dysfunction. In the case of a 46-year-old patient undergoing laparoscopic percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube insertion, we discuss the rationale behind our chosen method and anaesthetic agents as well as airway issues specific to HD. In a patient whose condition would not allow for an awake fibreoptic intubation, we opted for a modified rapid sequence induction...

BACKGROUND: Solid pseudo papillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas which predominantly affects young women is a relatively indolent entity with favorable prognosis. Resection through minimal access approach helps to achieve better short term benefits. The aim of this study is to describe our experience in laparoscopic management of this disease. METHODS: A retrospective review of our prospectively maintained database revealed that 17 patients with SPN were managed with surgical resection between March 2009 and October 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecologic cancer. Disease prevention may be the only method to reduce the incidence of ovarian cancer. The Society of Gynecologic Oncology advised that salpingectomies may be an appropriate and feasible strategy for ovarian cancer risk reduction. This study conducted an economic evaluation from a societal perspective of bilateral salpingectomies versus conventional sterilization techniques in the prevention of ovarian cancer. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a micro-cost analysis comparing laparoscopic tubal coagulation, tubal clips and bilateral salpingectomies at the Michael Garron Hospital, formerly the Toronto East General Hospital, from 2015 to 2016...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Obesity surgery induces beneficial effects in metabolic and cardiovascular parameters. Adiponectin increase might be associated with some of these changes. However, direct comparison between different surgical techniques has not been extensively performed. METHODS: We studied 20 obese women submitted to laparoscopic Roux en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and 20 to sleeve gastrectomy (SG). Twenty control women matched for age and baseline metabolic profiles were also included...

OBJECTIVE: The minimally invasive approach to colorectal surgery is still underused. Only 50% to 60% of colectomies and 10% to 20% of rectal resections for cancer are performed laparoscopically. The increasing adoption of the robotic platform for colorectal surgery warrants re-evaluation of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) training techniques. Although considering lessons learned from past laparoscopic training, a standardized national robotic training program for colon and rectal surgery residents was developed and implemented in 2011...

AIM: The aim was to compare the effectiveness of chewing sugar-free gum after bowel resection on bowel function and length of stay. METHOD: Randomised controlled trial of patients undergoing elective open or laparoscopic bowel surgery, allocated into two groups, a chewing gum group (CG) or a non-chewing gum group (NG). Primary outcomes were time to discharge (LOS), time to first flatus (TFF) and time to first bowel motion (TBM). Secondary outcomes were complication rates, pain and total morphine equivalent (TMEq) medication for seven days after the procedure...
