Heterodyne interferometry and phase contrast imaging (PCI) are robust, mature techniques for measuring low-k and high-k electron density fluctuations, respectively. This work describes the first-ever implementation of a combined PCI-interferometer. The combined system uses a single 10.6 μm probe beam, two interference schemes, and two detectors to measure electron density fluctuations at large spatiotemporal bandwidth (10 kHz <f < 5 MHz and 0 cm(-1) ≤k ≤ 20 cm(-1)), allowing simultaneous measurement of ion- and electron-scale instabilities...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopy is become a widely accepted approach for the resection of anterior mediastinal masses, including thymoma. The current trend is to reduce the number of ports and minimize the length of incisions to further decrease postoperative pain, chest wall paresthesia, and length of hospitalization. Herein, we reported an extended resection of thymoma in a patient with myasthenia gravis through an uniportal bilateral thoracoscopic approach. CASE PRESENTATION: A 74 years old woman with myasthenia gravis was referred to our attention for management of a 3...

Morgagni hernia is a relatively rare form of diaphragmatic hernia in the pediatric age group and it is conventionally treated with open surgical repair. Minimal access surgery is currently being adapted for many procedures in children. However, to date just a few techniques have been described relevant to minimal access surgical repair of Morgagni hernia in children. Herein, we report two cases of Morgagni hernia repaired by a new single-port laparoscopic technique assisted by an optical forceps. Two infants, a one-year-old boy and an eight-months-old girl, were operated with this technique in just 26 and 35 minutes and were discharged with oral analgesic prescription by postoperative hour 5 and 8, respectively...

The birth of a child with a disorder of sex development (DSD) prompts a long-term management strategy that involves a myriad of professionals working with the family. There has been progress in diagnosis, surgical techniques and in understanding psychosocial issues related to this condition. However, since these kinds of disorders are rare and have many anatomical variations, individual care is necessary, especially regarding surgical management. Gonadectomy is indicated in a number of intersex disorders with a Y chromosome to reduce the associated risk of cancer...

BACKGROUND: Conventional laparoscopy (CL) using 3-5 mm ports has become the goldstandard for pediatric nephrectomy (N), heminephrectomy (HN) and heminephrecto-ureterectomy (HNU) for many years now. Recently the spectrum of minimal invasive surgery (MIS) has been extended by variants like laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) or robot-assisted surgery (RAS). However such technical developments tend to drive surgical euphoria and feasibility studies, but may miss adequate academic research about function and proven patients' benefits...
