veress needle

L F A Wong, B Anglim, N A Wahab, N Gleeson
Laparoscopic entry techniques vary amongst surgeons and gynaecologists, with gynaecologists favouring Veress needle entry. Recent RCOG/BSGE recommendations have recommended retrieval of ovarian masses via the umbilical port with resultant less postoperative pain and a faster retrieval time than with retrieval through lateral ports of the same size. This is a prospective observational study reviewing the Hasson entry technique and the introduction of retrieval of specimens via the umbilicus in patients scheduled for a laparoscopy procedure at our day surgery unit...

BACKGROUND: Tension pneumothorax (tPTX) remains a significant cause of potentially preventable death in military and civilian settings. The current pre-hospital standard of care for tPTX is immediate decompression with a 14 gauge 8cm angiocatheter (14G AC); however, failure rates may be as high as 17-60%. Alternative devices, such as 10G AC, modified Veress needle (mVN) and laparoscopic trocar (LT), have shown to be potentially more effective in animal models; however, little is known about the relative insertional safety or mechanical stability during casualty movement...

Laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure of inguinal hernia with variable devices as an effective technique in minimal-access surgery for pediatric inguinal hernias in children was investigated in the present study. A Veress needle was inserted into the abdomen. Trocars, laparoscope and needle holder were placed through the umbilical incision. Under laparoscopic monitoring, a round needle was introduced into the peritoneal cavity through the anterior abdominal wall. The end of the suture inside the peritoneal cavity was left outside the peritoneal cavity in favor of ligation...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic access for robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) is often initiated in the periumbilical location. Palmer's point, located in the left upper quadrant, has been reported as an alternative access site for pelvic laparoscopy to reduce morbidity, but not widely reported among urologists. To better understand surgeons' preferences for access and its associated morbidity during RARP, we surveyed surgeons from two urologic organizations. METHODS: An anonymous online questionnaire (SurveyMonkey) consisting of 17 questions that assessed training, experience, and preferences for RARP was emailed in December 2014 and collected until February 2015 to members performing RARP of the Endourology Society (ES) and the Michigan Urological Society Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC)...

BACKGROUND: Surgical safety checklists reduce perioperative complications and mortality. Given that minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is dependent on technology and vulnerable to equipment failure, SAGES and AORN partnered to create a MIS checklist to optimize case flow and minimize errors. The aim of this project was to evaluate the effectiveness of the SAGES/AORN checklist in preventing disruptions and determine its ease of use. METHODS: The checklist was implemented across four institutions and completed by the operating team...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to report long-term outcomes for patients undergoing per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) after our initial 15-case learning curve. BACKGROUND: POEM has become an established, natural-orifice surgical approach for treating esophageal motility disorders. To date, published outcomes and comparative-effectiveness studies have included patients from the early POEM experience. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing POEM after our initial 15 cases, with a minimum of 1-year postoperative follow-up, were included...

INTRODUCTION: Port insertion is a high-risk period during laparoscopy. The French Gynecologist and Obstetricians College (CNGOF) published recommendations in 2010 to minimize those risks. The aim of our analysis was to establish the accidents' circumstances and consequences and to determine if those incidents could have been depending on whether recommendations had been respected or not. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Gynerisq is an approved organism by the Haute Autorité de santé (HAS)...

BACKGROUND: Although, the vast majority of bariatric procedures worldwide are performed laparoscopically, there is no consensus on the best technique to enter the first trocar, a potentially dangerous maneuver. Three principally different techniques exist: initial pneumoperitoneum by Verres needle, open Hasson technique, and direct placement of an optical trocar. In this nationwide survey, we have studied the presently used technique to place the first trocar and identified any intraabdominal injuries in 2012-2014...

Laparoscopic surgery has become more widespread in the last years. Creating the pneumoperitoneum is the first surgical procedure but it is still responsible for many of the adverse events described in this field. Until now, liver puncture producing a delayed biloma has not been described. We present a case where a biloma was developed after liver puncture by the Veress needle, during a laparoscopic procedure, and detected on the 3rd day. It was detected by CT scan and treated by laparoscopy. Biloma due to Veress needle is a new entity in the context of adverse events related to Veress needle insertion, which needs a high suspicious index...

The debate about the safety of penetrating technique in laparoscopy, persist for more than four decades and still does not approach the scientifically valid decision about what method to use: closed with a Veress needle laparoscopic surgery; open laparoscopy; direct placement of troakar without prior to insufflation, visual entry methods. We're meant to look at the advantages and disadvantages of the laparoscopic approach, which we use in the Clinic of Gynaecology of the Military Medical Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria, having conducted a search in the literature and Medline from the year in which it was introduced (1971) to present...

The open technique was first described by Hasson in 1970. This technique consists of creating a small umbilical incision under direct visualization to enter the abdominal cavity followed by the introduction of a blunt trocar. Pneumoperitoneum is then rapidly created. Hasson proposed its potential benefits to be the avoidance of blind insertion of the Veress needle and bladed trocar, prevention of visceral and vascular injuries, preperitoneal insufflation and gas embolism, guaranteed pneumoperitoneum, and a more anatomical repair of the abdominal wall...
