Colorenal fistula as a result of percutaneous cryoablation has not been extensively reported. We report a gentleman who presented with urosepsis after percutaneous biopsy of a renal mass complicated by colorenal fistula. After failed attempts at conservative management, he underwent laparoscopic resection of his fistula with renal salvage and omentoplasty highlighting that nephrectomy is not always indicated.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the current study was to assess symptomatic outcome and need for surgical reintervention for patients identified with pathological esophageal acid exposure by routine postoperative 24-hour pH-monitoring. BACKGROUND: Although laparoscopic fundoplication is associated with excellent short- and midterm results, recurrent symptoms pose an important challenge. Postoperative pH-monitoring is considered the "gold standard" for diagnosing recurrent GERD and frequently used for routine postoperative follow up...

BACKGROUND: When hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was located in segment 2 (S2), segment-oriented hepatectomy was more beneficial than left lateral sectionectomy as this type of anatomical resection preserved the volume of the nontumor-bearing segment. Herein, we presented 2 cases (1 with video) of laparoscopic anatomical S2 segmentectomy by the Glissonian approach. METHODS: The first patient was a 69-year-old woman, who had an incidentally detected liver nodule on abdominal ultrasound for systemic surveillance for her breast cancer...

Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney (MESTK) is a rare renal tumor composed of epithelial and stromal cells. In this study, we report a rare case of MESTK, which was pathologically benign but complicated with renal vein and inferior vena cava tumor thrombus. The 50-year-old female patient was admitted to hospital for a mass on the left kidney. Computed tomography showed a 32 mm×18 mm mass with slight delayed enhancement in the left renal sinus, and neoplastic thrombus was detected in left renal vein and inferior vena cava...

A 65-year-old female presented to clinic requesting follow up for a history of right robotic partial nephrectomy done at an outside institution 2 years prior. Initial pathology demonstrated a grade 2/4 3.4 cm clear cell renal cell carcinoma with negative margins. There was no tumor necrosis, sarcomatoid differentiation, or lymphovascular invasion. High quality follow up imaging initially revealed a pseudoaneurysm in the central portion of the right kidney. The patient was sent to interventional radiology for angioembolization...

INTRODUCTION: Although infrequent, when encountered vesicovaginal fistulas (VVF) are a difficult condition for both patients and physicians alike. After the first robotic repair was described in 2005, this has been an increasingly common treatment modality. At our institution between 2009 and 2014, eleven of these patients were evaluated and treated with robotic repair. However, fibrin sealant was used in place of the traditional tissue flap. Included are six patients who had previously undergone operative repair...

Objective This study was designed to compare the effectiveness of granisetron plus dexamethasone for preventing postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. Methods We searched the literature in the Cochrane Library, PubMed, EMBASE, and CNKI. Results In total, 11 randomized controlled trials were enrolled in this analysis. The meta-analysis showed that granisetron in combination with dexamethasone was significantly more effective than granisetron alone in preventing PONV in patients undergoing laparoscopy surgery...

We report herein our experience with bilateral inguinal hernia surgery for a patient who had previously undergone a Y-shaped vascular graft for an abdominal aortic aneurysm and then right axillary-bilateral femoral artery bypass surgery. Preoperative physical examination and imaging revealed a subcutaneous vascular graft passing from the right axilla through the right flank region and branching at the lower abdomen to reach the femoral areas on both sides. As repair surgery by inguinal incision was considered difficult, we performed laparoscopic surgery...

Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) is a safe and effective treatment option for benign prostatic hyperplasia. However, in some cases, it can lead to life-threatening complications. In particular, morcellation of the resected adenoma may be a very dangerous procedure when performed without clear visualization. We describe the first reported case of a vesicosigmoid fistula secondary to a morcellation injury during HoLEP.

Well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma of the peritoneum (WDPMP) is a rare subtype of epithelioid mesothelioma, which is usually seen in young women without a history of asbestos exposure, and generally, has an indolent course. The relative rarity of this neoplasm in males prompted us to report this case of a well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma of the peritoneum in a 36-year-old man. The patient, who had no history of asbestos exposure, presented with abdominal pain and ascites of unknown etiology...

Primary gallbladder lymphoma is an extremely rare disease. We report a case of a 63 year-old woman who has been admitted with gradual onset abdominal pain in the upper right quadrant and in the suprapubic region, nausea and malaise. According to the computed tomography scan of the abdomen, which was suggestive of chronic cholecystitis, she was treated conservatively. A laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed 5 months later and the histological examination of the gallbladder showed a low grade small lymphocytic lymphoma...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Injection of vasopressin into the uterus , significantly reduces the vascularity of the cornual ectopic, thereby resulting in bloodless surgery. DESIGN: A step by step demonstration of the surgical procedure. Canadian task force classification III SETTING: while all ectopics are associated with risk of hemorrhage, cornual pregnancies are feared for catastrophic hemorrhage and uncontrollable bleeding. The maternal mortality rate can be as high as 2...

STUDY OBJECT: To study the application of a fast-track care protocol in colorectal surgery for deep infiltrating endometriosis. Bowel endometriosis is an infrequent but not rare condition that often needs intestinal surgery and imposes a high economic burden on society. DESIGN: Prospective randomized trial (Canadian Task Force I). SETTING: Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS: We randomly assigned 227 patients with preoperative evidence of bowel endometriosis to a fast-track (no preoperative bowel preparation, early restoration of diet, no postoperative antibiotics, and early post-operative mobilization) or conventional care for laparoscopic intestinal surgery...

BACKGROUND: Outpatient laparoscopic appendectomy is being used increasingly as a treatment option for acute, uncomplicated appendicitis. This was a prospective validation study in a large, urban, public safety-net hospital. STUDY DESIGN: From 2014 to 2016, all patients undergoing laparoscopic appendectomy for acute, uncomplicated appendicitis were enrolled in a prospective observational trial. Standard baseline perioperative practice (control group) was documented for 1 year...

INTRODUCTION: After laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic fundoplication has become another gold standard of minimal invasive surgery. The level of satisfaction of patients undergoing endoscopic surgery is almost 90%. Laparoscopic fundoplication, like other surgery methods, can also be burdened with grave complications, which could result in a fatal outcome even if the surgery is performed by a skilled surgeon. Even the authors themselves encounter complications despite their rich experience (more than 3,500 laparoscopic operations in the diaphragmatic hiatus area in more than 20 years)...

INTRODUCTION: Low anterior resection (LAR) with total mesorectal excision (TME) represents the gold standard for patients with low rectal carcinoma. Protective ileostomy (PI) is commonly performed during LAR in an effort to protect low rectal anastomosis. The aim of this study is to analyse outcomes in our own patient population, focusing on morbidity associated with PI. METHOD: A retrospective clinical study of patients operated on between 2013 and 2015 was conducted in University Hospital Ostrava...

Anal metastasis of colorectal cancer is very rare and is usually associated with a history of anal disease, including anal fistula, fissure, hemorrhoidectomy, and anastomotic injury. We report a case of rectal cancer with a synchronous anal metastasis consisting of adenocarcinoma of squamous cells without a history of anal disease. A 60-year-old woman had a chief complaint of melena. She had a 1.5-cm anal tumor on the perianal skin, and a Bollman type 2 rectal tumor on the Ra portion was found on colonoscopy...
