PURPOSE: Gallstones patients without preoperative history of jaundice, deranged liver function tests, or dilated bile ducts (BD) are unlikely to have BD stones. However, some of these patients in our series underwent endoscopic stone(s) removal after laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). We aim to find the incidence, possible intraoperative risk factors, and if the Surgeon can be blamed for this event. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied LC cases over 12-year period at our university hospital and identified patients who did not have preoperative risk factors for BD stones but developed postoperative jaundice and/or persistent abdominal pain...

RATIONALE: With the development of laparoscopic technique, the total laparoscopic living donor right hemihepatectomy (LLDRH) procurement surgery has been successfully performed in many liver transplant centers all over the world, and the number of cases is continuing to increase. We report our case of laparoscopic right graft resection with venous outflow reconstruction using cadaveric common iliac artery allograft in our center and review literatures about total LLDRH surgery. PATIENT CONCERNS AND DIAGNOSES: A 40-year-old male living donor for right hepatectomy was selected after pretransplant evaluation including laboratory tests, liver volume, anatomy of hepatic vein, artery, portal vein, and bile duct...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare adhesion formation after laparoscopic and open colorectal cancer resection. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: After colorectal surgery, most patients develop adhesions, with a high burden of complications. Laparoscopy seems to reduce adhesion formation, but evidence is poor. Trials comparing open- and laparoscopic colorectal surgery have never assessed adhesion formation. METHODS: Data on adhesions were gathered during resection of colorectal liver metastases...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) has been increasing since it was first reported in 1991. Two international expert consensus conferences on LLR surgery were held in Louisville, KY, USA, in 2008 and in Morioka, Japan, in 2014, respectively. While most initial minimally invasive liver resections were typically done for benign lesions in anterior or left lateral segments, LLR is currently being applied for major anatomic resections, malignancy, cirrhosis, and live donor hepatectomy...

BACKGROUND: In laparoscopic upper-gastrointestinal (GI) surgery, an adequate retraction of the liver is crucial. Especially in single-port surgery and obese patients, problems may occur during liver retraction. The current study seeks to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the LiVac trocar-free liver retractor in laparoscopic upper-GI surgery. METHODS: The present study is a nonrandomized dual-center clinical series describing our preliminary results using the LiVac system for liver retraction...

Echinococcosis causes a hydatid cyst, a worldwide disease. Human beings are intermediate hosts, but dogs complete the life cycle of the cestode. The most common presentation sites are the liver and lungs. We present an unusual case of a primary splenic hydatid cyst. Open splenectomy has traditionally been the treatment of choice for splenic hydatid cysts. In recent years, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery has been used in appropriate cases. A healthy 48-year-old woman was scheduled for laparoscopic splenectomy...

BACKGROUND: The benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy occurs with early initiation, but is commonly delayed due to postoperative complications. Minimally invasive surgery is proven to significantly reduce complications and hospital length of stay. This study compares open versus laparoscopic liver resection in patients requiring adjuvant chemotherapy. METHODS: 120 consecutive patients with metastatic colorectal liver cancer who underwent liver resection between 2007 through 2012 were reviewed from an IRB prospective database...

BACKGROUND: In a statement from the second International Consensus Conference for Laparoscopic Liver Resection, adult-to-adult laparoscopic donor surgery was the earliest phase of development. It was recommended that the procedure be performed under institutional ethical approval and a reporting registry. METHOD: At our institute, we started laparoscopy-assisted donor hepatectomy (LADH) in 2007 and changed to pure laparoscopic donor hepatectomy (PLDH) in 2012. This study included 40 living donors who underwent LADH and 14 live donors who underwent PLDH...

REVIEW
Atsushi Sugioka, Yutaro Kato, Yoshinao Tanahashi
Anatomical liver resection with the Glissonean pedicle isolation is widely approved as an essential procedure for safety and curability. Especially, the extrahepatic Glissonean pedicle isolation without parenchymal destruction should be an ideal procedure. However, the surgical technique has not been standardized due to a lack of anatomical understanding. Herein, we proposed a novel comprehensive surgical anatomy of the liver based on Laennec's capsule that would give a theoretical background to the extrahepatic Glissonean pedicle isolation...

PURPOSE: Three-dimensional (3D) printing for preoperative planning has been intensively developed in the recent years. However, the implementation of these solutions in hospitals is still difficult due to high costs, extremely expensive industrial-grade printers, and software that is difficult to obtain and learn along with a lack of a defined process. This paper presents a cost-effective technique of preparing 3D-printed liver models that preserves the shape and all of the structures, including the vessels and the tumor, which in the present case is colorectal liver metastasis...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic left lateral sectionectomy (LLLS) has been associated with shorter hospital stay and reduced overall morbidity compared with open left lateral sectionectomy (OLLS). Strong evidence has not, however, been provided. METHODS: In this multicentre double-blind RCT, patients (aged 18-80 years with a BMI of 18-35 kg/m(2) and ASA fitness grade of III or below) requiring left lateral sectionectomy (LLS) were assigned randomly to OLLS or LLLS within an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programme...

A 65-year-old man had undergone high anterior resection for rectal cancer. Seven years after the surgery, a liver metastasis was identified, and the metastasis was surgically resected. A year after the liver surgery, blood testing showed high carcinoembryonic antigen(CEA). A fluorodeoxyglucose(FDG) / -positron emission tomography(PET)/CT examination showed a high FDG accumulation at the rectal anastomosis site, and we diagnosed local recurrence of rectal cancer and prostate invasion. Because there were no distant metastases, he underwent laparoscopic lower anterior resection, radical prostatectomy, and ileostomy...

BACKGROUND: Lateral lymph node dissection(LLND)for locally advanced lower rectal cancer is the standard treatment procedure in Japan. We performed LLND with an extraperitoneal approach. Recently, we introduced laparoscopic surgery for locally advanced rectal cancer and laparoscopic LLND. We performed laparoscopic LLND in a patient havinglower rectal cancer with lateral lymph node metastasis that was detected via preoperative imaging. CASE PRESENTATION: The patient was a woman in her 50s who experienced melena and visited a physician...

Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive and has better cosmetic results. Laparoscopic liver resection(LLR)was covered by health insurance in April 2010, and has increasingly been performed in many hospitals, and also in cases of elderly patients. We report the results of laparoscopic liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC)in patients ≥80 years old. From June 2010 through March 2016, 237 cases of laparoscopic hepatectomy for HCC were performed in our hospital, and 35 of 237 cases were patients ≥80 years old(the elderly group)...

It has been suggested that port site recurrence is a potential complication after laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer, especially considering the increased number of laparoscopic surgeries being performed. We encountered a case of an 84-year-old man who was diagnosed with 2 port site recurrences at the navel and right hypochondrium after laparoscopic distal gastrectomy(D2). Pathological diagnosis for the original tumor was tub2, pT4a, pN1(1/38), M0, pStage III A, and HER2(0). As first-line chemotherapy with S-1 plus CDDP for the port site recurrence failed, second-line chemotherapy with ramucirumab plus paclitaxel(RAM plus PTX)was administered...

Liver retraction is a necessary operative procedure for enabling greater visualization and a wider surgical field during laparoscopic surgery of the stomach. We have developed a new liver retraction method for laparoscopic surgery that uses penrose drains, is very easy to perform and in minimally invasive. We call this method the "V-Shape+1 method". We performed laparoscopic surgery using this method on 16 patients within 8.3(5.3-13.7)min(median). We analyzed the postoperative changes in the serum levels of AST, ALT, and T-Bil, which are indicators of liver function...

Laparoscopic major hepatectomy is a common procedure that has been reported frequently; however, laparoscopic resection of centrally located tumors involving segments 4, 5, and 8 remains a technically difficult procedure because it requires 2 transection planes and dissection of numerous branches of the hepatic vein and glissonean capsule compared to hemi-hepatectomy. Here, we present 7 cases of totally laparoscopic right anterior sectionectomy (Lap-RAS) and 3 cases of totally laparoscopic central bisectionectomy (Lap-CBS)...

There is the need for well-trained advanced GI surgeons. The super specialization seen in academic and large community centers may not be applicable for surgeons practicing in other settings. The pendulum that has been swinging toward narrow specialization is swinging the other way, as many trained subspecialists are having a harder time finding positions after fellowship, and if they do find a position, the majority of their practice can actually be advanced GI surgery and not exclusively their area of focused expertise...

BACKGROUND: Anatomical liver resection has been reported to have oncologic benefit over nonanatomical resection in surgery for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Basic concept of anatomical resection is preventing tumor spread through the portal or venous flow. Few cases have been reported for laparoscopic anatomical segment 8 resection because of its technical difficulties. This video shows operative techniques for laparoscopic anatomical resection of segment 8, exposing middle and right hepatic vein and inferior vena cava using three-dimensional video...

BACKGROUND: Cirrhotic patients have been known to be more affected with gallstones than their non-cirrhotic counterparts; since laparoscopy was introduced, it has been generally approved as the standard approach for cholecystectomies with the exception of end-stage cirrhosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of clipless laparoscopic cholecystectomy using the harmonic scalpel in complicated cholelithiasis in cirrhotic patients. METHODS: This prospective study was conducted on 62 cirrhotic patients presenting to the Gastrointestinal Surgery Unit in Alexandria Main University Hospital with complicated gallstones between March 2013 and March 2016...
