The da Vinci Xi surgical system was released with several upgrades and modifications compared to the previous robotic generations to facilitate minimal invasive surgery. Herein, we present our preliminary experience of robotic laparoendoscopic single-site gynecologic surgery performed for benign indications with the da Vinci Xi robotic system in a single center. Thirty-five female patients underwent robotic single-site surgery between June 2016 and January 2017. The median console time for hysterectomy with or without salpingo-oophorectomy was 41 min...

BACKGROUND: The technique of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair has been evolving since it was first described over 20 years ago. We report a new technique where polyester mesh was back loaded through a 5-mm port site, coming into contact with the skin. This avoids the need for any 10-12-mm ports. METHODS: A prospective database of laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs was examined. A single surgeon performed 344 laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs using this technique over 60 months...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Evidence is increasing that single-port or single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a safe and feasible alternative for cholecystectomy in children. In this study, we sought to compare the single-port hybrid technique, which we originally reported in 2012, with the conventional 4-port approach, in regards of complications, outcome, operative time and cost. METHODS: A retrospective, single-center comparison of hybrid single-port versus conventional 4-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed in 98 consecutive pediatric patients between January 2010 and October 2014...

Gangil Byun, Hosung Choo
One of the most challenging problems in recent antenna engineering fields is to achieve highly reliable beamforming capabilities in an extremely restricted space of small handheld devices. In this paper, we introduce a new perspective on single-radiator multiple-port (SRMP) antenna to alter the traditional approach of multiple-antenna arrays for improving beamforming performances with reduced aperture sizes. The major contribution of this paper is to demonstrate the beamforming capability of the SRMP antenna for use as an extremely miniaturized front-end component in more sophisticated beamforming applications...

We introduce an information rich analytical approach called parallel comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (2GC×2GC). This parallel chromatography approach splits injected samples into two independent two-dimensional column ensembles and provides two GC×GC separations by using contra-directional thermal modulation. The first-dimension ((1)D) and second-dimension ((2)D) columns are connected using planar three-port microchannel devices, which are supplied with supplementary flow via two pressure controller modules...

OBJECTIVE: Sacrocolpopexy is considered the gold standard for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). This procedure was the first technique used to treat POP with robotic assistance and has gone a long way since the open procedure was introduced. Originally, 5 trocars were inserted and there remained issues in terms of scarring, morcellation, and possibly an increased risk of infection. The objective of this video was to demonstrate a surgical technique and a few tips and tricks for a robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy performed via a single port in the umbilicus...

PURPOSE: The relationship between health-related quality of life (HRQoL), physical activity (PA), and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) among disadvantaged communities in low- and middle-income countries is poorly understood. In South Africa, children from socioeconomically deprived households are at an elevated risk of sedentary lifestyles and poor HRQoL. We examined whether higher self-reported PA and higher CRF levels are associated with better HRQoL in South African schoolchildren from disadvantaged neighbourhoods...

The broad categories of surgical fetal therapy can be separated into either open surgical techniques or minimally invasive endoscopic/ultrasound-guided techniques that require only puncture of the uterus with single or multiple small ports. Benefits of fetoscopic or ultrasound-guided fetal intervention include decreased uterine irritability, decreased incidence of preterm labor, and avoidance of risks associated with hysterotomy and commitment to cesarean delivery for future pregnancies. Fetal abnormalities potentially amenable to ultrasound-guided drainage techniques include thoracic fluid-filled lesions and lower urinary tract obstruction...

With the advancement of laparoscopic devices and surgical technology, the era of minimal invasive surgery has progressed to reduced-port surgery, and finally to single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS). Several reports show successful application of SILS to various types of bariatric surgery. Oftentimes, this requires a skilled and experienced scopist to perform the procedure. To overcome the technical difficulties of single-incision Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, a manual scope holder was used instead of an assistant scopist, greatly stabilizing the field of view...

REVIEW
Takashi Suda
In recent years, the subxiphoid approach has been used to avoid intercostal nerve damage in the field of thoracic surgery. A subxiphoid single-port thymectomy does not require sternotomy; it is associated with lesser pain because there is no intercostal nerve damage; and it provides excellent cosmetic outcomes. Furthermore, in 2014, the author and colleagues reported synchronous resection of bilateral pulmonary metastases by bilateral lung-wedge resection for bilateral metastatic lung tumors with a single 3-cm subxiphoid incision...

Since it was first performed in 2010, lobectomy via a single port-uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)-has become increasingly popular among surgeons. However, this most minimally invasive surgical approach requires a different skill set compared with even conventional multiportal VATS. For those beginning to learn uniportal VATS, the technical challenges can seem considerable. This article shares some tips and tricks from experienced uniportal VATS practitioners that will help those wishing to learn the approach, and covers the principles of operative setup and instrumentation as well as specific pointers on surgery for each lung lobe...
