Introduction: To the modern surgeon in training, the acquisition of laparoscopic skills is essential. Laparoscopic simulators are effective but in the often resource poor setting of the Caribbean, the cost of these simulators is often prohibitive. We describe the construction of a simulator which is cheap, easy to assemble and effective. It is also relatively easy to mass produce for use in training programmes across the region. Materials and methods: The simulator is constructed using a semi-transparent plastic box...

Phase III evidence in the shape of a series of randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses has shown that laparoscopic gastrectomy is safe and gives better short-term results with respect to the traditional open technique for early-stage gastric cancer. In fact, in the East laparoscopic gastrectomy has become routine for early-stage gastric cancer. In contrast, the treatment of advanced gastric cancer through a minimally invasive way is still a debated issue, mostly due to worries about its oncological efficacy and the difficulty of carrying out an extended lymphadenectomy and intestinal reconstruction after total gastrectomy laparoscopically...

Wei Yu, Huisheng Yuan, Shi Cheng, Ying Xing, Wenmao Yan
A double gallbladder is a rare congenital malformation. The present study describes a case of double gallbladder with secondary common bile duct stones. By way of laparoscopic choledochoscopy, the exploration and removal of a common bile duct stone was performed through the cystic duct. The process involved a primary suture of the cystic duct and was performed without using a T-tube, and completed a surgical removal of the gallbladder. The present case was successfully treated by laparoscopic surgery. From a review of previous studies published in the English language, this study, to the best of our knowledge, is the first report of such a case...
