BACKGROUND: Although various metabolic hormones have been implicated in bariatric-related weight loss, their use as predictors of weight loss is unknown. Our study evaluates changes in metabolic hormones after bariatric surgery, and their role as predictors of weight loss. METHODS: This nonrandomized study included 51 patients, 21 underwent laporascopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), 15 laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and 15 Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB)...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the correlation between signs of living body in abdominal and pelvic cavities and syndrome typing of Chinese medicine (CM) in colorectal cancer patients. METHODS: Totally 112 colorectal cancer patients undergoing open abdominal surgery or laporoscopic surgery were syndrome typed as five types, i.e., inner-accumulation of damp and heat, blockage of stasis and toxin, Pi-Shen yang deficiency, blood-qi deficiency, Gan-Shen yin deficiency. Signs of living body in abdominal and pelvic cavities were collected...

OBJECTIVE: Gastric cancer is a worldwide aggressive tumor with a bad prognosis. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively investigate operative findings of 53 patients aged over 70 with gastric cancer who underwent laporoscopic operations in our clinic. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients who underwent laporoscopic surgery for pathologically confirmed gastric cancer at our clinic between March 2008 and October 2010 was conducted. D1 resection (Level1 lymphadenectomy) was compared with D2 resection (Levels 1 and 2 lymphadenectomy)...

BACKGROUND: Controversy exists over whether or not single-needle liver biopsies are sufficient to compare histological parameters in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. AIMS: To identify sampling variability, we biopsied four liver specimens per patient, based on biopsy size (needle vs wedge) and location (left vs right lobe), immediately prior to bariatric Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. METHODS: Ten prospectively enrolled, morbidly obese patients underwent 40 laparoscopy-guided biopsies; two needle and two wedge from each of 16 left and 16 right liver lobes...

BACKGROUND: The etiology and incidence of port-site metastases after laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer remain unknown. The purpose of this experimental study was to detect and quantify the amount of contamination at the port-site by means of a method utilizing radiolabelled colloid particles following extra- or intracorporeal laporoscopic resection of cecum. METHODS: Prior to experimental surgery, we obtained a high concentration of luminal colonic radiotracer activity by per anum application of sulphur colloid molecules labelled with Tc-99m pertechnetate...

The management of traumatic biliary fistulas is controversial. New ideas in nonsurgical treatment have recently evolved, in part because of the rapid advancement of laporoscopic surgery. Three major concepts are important in managing biliary fistulas: diagnosis, drainage, and decompression. These concepts were applied to a trauma patient, then reviewed in detail.

Between February 1991 and July 1991, 74 laparoscopic cholecystectomies were performed. The number of all cholecystectomies during this period was 168. Two surgeons performed the operations. Stone in the common bile duct, old age, acute cholecystitis, severe obesity and heart rhythm disorders were regarded as contraindications. The duration of the operation was 45-210 min. (mean 127 min). The intervention was diverted to open cholecystectomy in 2 instances (2.7%). Early postoperative complications were observed in 2 cases (2...
