trocar injury to pelvic nerves

Jacques Hernigou, Laure Picard, Alexandra Alves, Jonathan Silvera, Yasuhiro Homma, Philippe Hernigou
PURPOSE: Should the trocar suddenly lose contact with bone during bone marrow aspiration, it may result in visceral injury. The anatomy of the ilium and the structures adjacent to the iliac bone were studied to determine the danger of breach by a trocar introduced into the iliac crest. METHODS: The authors followed two series of patients, one series to do measurements of distance and angles of the structures at risk to the iliac bone and the other to evaluate the risk of a trocar being directed outside the iliac wing during bone marrow aspiration...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the route of minimal invasive sling procedures and evaluate their safety. METHODS: Tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), TVT-obturator (TVT-O) and posterior intravaginal sling (P-IVS) procedure were performed on five fresh pelvis. 4% formaldehyde was used to preserve the cadavers and colored latex was injected into the vessels. An anatomic study and measurements between the trocars and related vessels or organs were carried out. RESULTS: There was no complication during all injections...

BACKGROUND: Currently, pathologies from the presacral space are explored primarily by using transabdominal approaches. Major complications may occur, including bowel and rectal perforation, or bleeding. To avoid and reduce these potentially severe risks, a new surgical approach to the presacral space, which permits exploration through the perineum with minimal invasive techniques, had already been developed and is now further elaborated in a cadaver and clinical study. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective study was performed using four cadavers with no history of pelvic or perineal disease...

Laparoscopic surgery has many advantages but it is not without complications. The complexity of the surgery significantly influences the complication rate. Laparoscopic surgeons ought to be aware of the possible complications and how they could be prevented, recognized without delay, and managed safely and efficiently. Important complications include injuries to the vessels, bowel and urinary tract. Incisional hernia ought to be reduced by careful closure of the fascia whenever a trocar > or =10 mm is used at the extraumbilical site...

OBJECTIVES: Significant obesity is considered to be a relative contraindication to laparoscopic surgery. This study reviews the complications encountered in massively obese patients undergoing urologic laparoscopic surgery. METHODS: Body mass index (BMI) was used as an objective index to indicate massive obesity. Eleven institutions compiled retrospective data on 125 patients having a BMI greater than 30. Procedures performed included 76 pelvic lymph node dissections, 14 nephrectomies, 7 bladder neck suspensions, and 28 miscellaneous procedures...

Fifty-four patients underwent staging laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy under general anesthesia for prostatic carcinoma (49), bladder carcinoma (3), penile carcinoma (1), and lymphoma (1). Conversion to an open procedure occurred only once in the series, but three patients received secondary open operations (5.5%). Complications recognized intraoperatively included bladder perforation (2) and mesenteric hematoma (1). One bladder perforation was repaired laparoscopically. The other was treated with catheter drainage...
