Nerve injuries during gynecologic endoscopy are an infrequent but distressing complication. In benign gynecologic surgery, most of these injuries are associated with patient positioning, although some are related to port placement. Most are potentially preventable with attention to patient placement on the operating room bed and knowledge of the relative anatomy of the nerves. The highest risk group vulnerable to these injuries includes women who have extreme body mass index and those with longer surgical times in the Trendelenburg position...

BACKGROUND: Ureteral wounds are rare with an incidence of 0.5 to 1% of pelvic surgeries. Their supports and their prognosis remain dependant of the period of support and the level of ureteral lesion. The importance of early treatment reduces morbidity and improves patient prognosis. METHODS: A retrospective study from October 2003 to June 2014 was performed in a university hospital using a systematic chart review of patients' urology, digestive surgery, vascular surgery and gynecology...

The aim of this study is to determine how complications can be avoided in gynecological minimally invasive surgery in Europe. The Norwegian Gynecological Endoscopic Registry (NGER) facilitates medical research over a long duration. Can experiences from the Norwegian registry be used to develop a European registry to avoid complications? To answer this question, we used the NGER data from February 2013 until March 2015 to analyze the complications of gynecological endoscopy. The registry includes sociodemographic factors, related comorbidity, previous surgery, present procedure, and intraoperative complications...

Endometriosis is a multifocal gynecological disorder affecting approximately 6%-10% of women during their reproductive years (Giudice and Kao in: Lancet 364:1789-1799, 2004). Presenting symptomatology often relates to the anatomical structures involved. Given the complexity of both the management and pain control of patients with complex endometriosis, the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy has issued guidelines on the establishment of a multidisciplinary team approach to these cases (http://www.bsge...

Deep gluteal syndrome (DGS) is an underdiagnosed entity characterized by pain and/or dysesthesias in the buttock area, hip or posterior thigh and/or radicular pain due to a non-discogenic sciatic nerve entrapment in the subgluteal space. Multiple pathologies have been incorporated in this all-included "piriformis syndrome," a term that has nothing to do with the presence of fibrous bands, obturator internus/gemellus syndrome, quadratus femoris/ischiofemoral pathology, hamstring conditions, gluteal disorders and orthopedic causes...

A new European telesurgical system, the Telelap Alf-x, is introduced. Its main features are individual arms, which enable free access to the patient throughout surgery, a large range of reusable surgical instruments, an open console with eye-tracking system, where the camera follows the eye and head movements of the surgeon, and the existing force feedback enables for the first time to feel the consistency of the tissues and avoid tearing of the stitches while suturing. The system combines the benefits of open surgery and endoscopy...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Laparoscopic techniques for pelvic organ prolapse surgery using mesh are gaining interest. A standard approach or published guideline for the laparoscopic sacrohysteropexy (LSH) or laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC) is lacking. The purpose of this study is to assess the variation between Dutch gynecologists in executing LSH and LSC. METHODS: A questionnaire was developed to evaluate the technique of LSH and LSC. All members of the Dutch Society for Gynecological Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Surgery and the Dutch Society for Urogynecology were invited by email to participate in a web-based survey...

Specimen retrieval bags have long been used in laparoscopic gynecologic surgery for contained removal of adnexal cysts and masses. More recently, the concerns regarding spread of malignant cells during mechanical morcellation of myoma have led to an additional use of specimen retrieval bags for contained "in-bag" morcellation. This review will discuss the indications for use retrieval bags in gynecologic endoscopy, and describe the different specimen bags available to date.

Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a rare, autosomal dominant disease linked to a mutation of the STK 11 gene and is characterized by the development of benign hamartomatous polyps in the gastrointestinal tract in association with a hyperpigmentation on the lips and oral mucosa. Patients affected by PJS have an increased risk of developing gastrointestinal and extra-digestive cancer. Malignancy most commonly occurs in the small-bowel. Extra-intestinal malignancies are mostly breast cancer and gynecological tumors or, to a lesser extent, pancreatic cancer...
