Spleen preserving laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy is considered as first choice operation for symptomatic benign or small malignant lesions located at the body or tail of the pancreas. The two main surgical techniques that have been proposed and widely adopted for spleen preserving laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy are the Warshaw and Kimura techniques. A novel modified approach for laparoscopic spleen preserving distal pancreatectomy is presented. The technique was initially performed in a 57-year-old female patient with mucinous cystadenoma...

INTRODUCTION: Morgagni Larray hernia (MLH) is a very rare disease, which accounts for less than 5% of all congenital diaphragmatic hernias. Laparoscopic repair has been widely used and accepted as a treatment option for patients with this disease. The purpose of our study is to analyze the outcomes of patients with MLH who underwent laparoscopic repair, and to evaluate their postoperative course for outcome, morbidity, and mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed of patients who were diagnosed with MLH and treated laparoscopically by 10 board-certified pediatric surgeons...

Background and study aims  Duplication cysts of the ileum are rare and present with non-specific clinical manifestations such as abdominal pain, vomiting, melena, and intussusception. Therefore, preoperative diagnosis is difficult. Here, we report a case of duplication cyst of the small intestine that was diagnosed preoperatively using double-balloon enteroscopy. A 19-year-old man presented with severe iron deficiency anemia, abdominal pain, and exertional dyspnea. Gastroscopy and colonoscopy revealed no remarkable findings...

Background: Although widely regarded as rare epithelial tumors with a low grade of malignancy, endolymphatic sac tumors (ELST) often lead to disabling petrous bone destruction and significantly impairing symptoms at the time of primary diagnosis and/or recurrence. ELST is not uncommon in von Hippel Lindau (VHL) patients. Although open surgery is regarded as the best treatment option, recurrence remains a challenge, particularly when gross tumor resection (GTR) is deemed unachievable due to topographic conditions...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar epidural lipomatosis (LEL) is characterized by abnormal accumulation of unencapsulated adipose tissue in the spinal epidural space. Such accumulation compresses the dural sac and nerve roots, and results in various neurological findings. However, the pathophysiology of LEL remains unclear. This study examined the associations between imaging and clinical findings in detail, and investigated the mechanisms underlying symptom onset by measuring intraoperative epidural pressures in LEL...

Internal hernia related to paracecal hernia is a rare disease and is difficult to confirm by preoperative diagnosis. We recently encountered a case of an 83-year-old woman who had lower abdominal pain in her right quadrant. Based on physical findings and CT findings she was diagnosed as having small bowel obstruction by internal hernia around the cecum. She underwent emergency operation with laparoscopic surgery and was diagnosed with a paracecal hernia and treated laparoscopically. After we dissected the ventral wall of the hernia sac and enlarged the hernia orifice, we reduced the trapped small intestine into the abdominal space...

OBJECTIVE Optimal diagnosis and management strategies for intradural spinal arachnoid cysts (SACs) are still unresolved given the rare nature of this entity, with few large case series and virtually no statistical analyses of patient characteristics in the literature. Here, the authors studied a large patient cohort with these lesions to determine whether pre- or postoperative attributes could be used to aid in either diagnosis or prognosis. METHODS A chart review was completed at a single institution for the period from 2002 to 2016 to determine the preoperative characteristics and postoperative outcomes of 21 patients with exclusively intradural SACs...

An 81-year-old patient with significant cardiac comorbidities, a history of sigmoid resection 6 years ago, and iliac bypass surgery 19 years ago presented with mild hematochezia for the previous 3 days. While hemodynamically stable at first, he developed massive bleeding during preparation for colonoscopy and underwent a short course of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Colonoscopy revealed no active bleeding but a protuberance of the colonic wall and a coagulation clot. In ultrasonography immediately after endoscopy, a large aneurysm was diagnosed and diagnosis of an iliaco-colonic fistula was assumed...

We present a rare case of Amyand's hernia that was surgically managed using an open repair of hernia combined with laparoscopic appendicectomy. A 68-year-old man presented with an irreducible recurrent right-sided inguinal hernia and abdominal pain. This gentleman had undergone three previous inguinal hernia repairs on the right, and one on the left using the open mesh technique. Ultrasound suggested the possibility of the appendix within the hernial sac and clinical correlation was advised. An open groin approach was taken to repair the incarcerated hernia...

Benign multicystic peritoneal mesothelioma (BMPM) is rare and difficult to diagnose before surgery. We report a case of BMPM incidentally discovered during laparoendoscopic single site surgery (LESS) for treatment of a pelvic mass. A 47-year-old Korean menopaused woman presented to our outpatient clinic with a pelvic mass. She had a history of right ovary cystectomy with adhesiolysis at a local hospital in 2010. Imaging study of the pelvis revealed a multilocular cystic mass. LESS was performed and multiple grapelike clusters of cysts were seen in the uterus, cul-de-sac, both adnexa, pelvic wall, and omentum...

Volar ganglion cyst of the wrist is a common hand problem faced by orthopaedic surgeons. Excision is indicated if it is painful. Arthroscopic ganglionectomy of the wrist ganglion has been reported with the advantage of minimally invasive surgery. Most of them involve elimination of the valvular mechanism and internal drainage of the ganglion fluid to the wrist joint. The access of the ganglion sac is limited especially for a multiloculated cyst. The purpose of this Technical Note is to report the technique of endoscopic resection of the volar radial wrist ganglion...

A 24-year-old female secretary bird ( Sagittarius serpentarius) was presented with acute, mild dyspnea occurring only during feeding times. Despite initial conservative therapy consisting of antibiotics and antifungal, antiparasitic, and anti-inflammatory drugs, the dyspnea worsened progressively, resulting in severe respiratory distress. Radiographs of the trachea suggested stenosis in the caudal one-third of the trachea. Tracheal endoscopy revealed an obstruction of approximately 90% of the tracheal lumen, in addition to mild suspected aspergillosis of the air sacs...

OBJECTIVES: In advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (AOC), lesser sac (LS) metastasis particularly to the supragastric LS (SGLS) may be overlooked, resulting in unrecognized residual disease. We aimed to identify the frequency, distribution, and predictors of LS metastasis using laparoscopic evaluation at laparotomy and perioperative surgical complications associated with evaluation and resection/ablation. METHODS: Prospective observational study in consecutive patients with AOC undergoing laparotomy for primary or interval cytoreductive surgery in 2 centers between November 2013 and December 2016...
