#1
REVIEW
Minki Baek, Chester J Koh
The da Vinci robotic system has improved surgeon dexterity, ergonomics, and visualization to allow for a minimally invasive option for complex reconstructive procedures in children. Over the past decade, robot-assisted laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation (RALUR) has become a viable minimally invasive surgical option for pediatric vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). However, higher-than-expected complication rates and suboptimal reflux resolution rates at some centers have also been reported. The heterogeneity of surgical outcomes may arise from the inherent and underestimated complexity of the RALUR procedure that may justify its reclassification as a complex reconstructive procedure and especially for robotic surgeons early in their learning curve...

PURPOSE: Besides antibiotic prophylaxis, antiseptic skin preparation is an important measure to prevent surgical site infection (SSI). No reports have detailed the relationship between SSI and umbilical microflora following laparoscopic colorectal cancer with a transumbilical longitudinal incision. METHODS: Risk factors and the rate of SSI were investigated in 453 patients who underwent laparoscopic colorectal resection over a 3-year period. Microbiological samples were collected from the umbilicus and SSI areas...

Surgical removal with radical prostatectomy has been a cornerstone for the treatment of prostate cancer and is associated with level one evidence for survival advantage compared to watchful waiting. Since the first structured robotic program was launched in 2000, robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) has had a rapid diffusion and surpassed its open (ORP) and laparoscopic (LRP) counterparts in the United States and is progressively expanding in other countries. Interestingly, this common acceptance of RARP was initially driven in the paucity of robust clinical evidence...

Since the first laparoscopic procedure, there has been an steady increase in advanced minimally invasive surgery. These procedures include oncological colorectal, hepatobiliary and upper gastrointestinal surgery. Implementation of these procedures requires different and new skills for the surgeons who wish to perform these procedures. To accomplish this surgical teaching program, a mentorship seems the most ideal method to teach the apprentice surgeon these specific skills. At the VU medical center a teaching program for a minimally-invasive esophagectomy for esophageal cancer started in 2009...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic surgery has been performed less frequently in the era of pancreatic cancer due to technical difficulties and concerns about oncological safety. Radical antegrade modular pancreatosplenectomy (RAMPS) is expected to be helpful to obtain a negative margin during radical lymph node dissection. We hypothesized that it would also be favorable as a laparoscopic application due to unique features. METHODS: Fifteen laparoscopic RAMPS for well-selected patients with left-sided pancreatic cancer were performed from July 2011 to April 2016...

INTRODUCTION: Single-port laparoscopic surgery (SPLS) has gained popularity due to its cosmetic benefit, and therefore, has been applied to several kinds of benign operations, such as appendectomy and cholecystectomy. The safety and suitability of SPLS for colon cancer has not been widely proved. We aimed at validating the safety, efficacy, and short-term quality of life (QOL) of SPLS compared with conventional laparoscopic surgery (CLS) in patients with colon cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between June 2010 and April 2011, a total of 62 patients with pathology-proven colon cancer were randomly allocated to two groups: SPLS and CLS...

AIM: To assess the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic and endoscopic co-operative surgery (LECS) for early non-ampullary duodenal tumors. METHODS: Twelve patients with a non-ampullary duodenal tumor underwent LECS at our hospital. One patient had two mucosal lesions in the duodenum. The indication for this procedure was the presence of duodenal tumors with a low risk for lymph node metastasis. In particular, the tumors included small (less than 10 mm) submucosal tumors (SMT) and epithelial mucosal tumors, such as mucosal cancers or large mucosal adenomas with malignant suspicion...

Laparoscopic surgery of rectal cancer has experienced more than 20 years of technical development and clinical research. Based on the published high-level clinical trials such as COREAN, COLOR Ⅱ, ACOSOG Z6051 and ALacaRT, laparoscopic surgery is recommended as method to treat rectal cancer by the NCCN Clinical Practice Guideline on Rectal Cancer (version 1.2016) with class 2A evidence. But it is also suggested that the surgeons should have experiences of performing minimally invasive proctectomy with total mesorectal excision...

We examined the feasibility of umbilical diverting ileostomy for overweight and obese patients with rectal cancer undergoing laparoscopic surgery. Four patients who were overweight or obese (BMI > 27 kg/m(2) ) were initially scheduled for the creation of a conventional loop ileostomy. Intraoperatively, however, this was considered too complicated because of thick subcutaneous fat, bulky mesentery, or both. Instead, patients received a diverting ileostomy with the placement of an umbilical stoma. All patients had protruding umbilical ileostomies...
