PURPOSE: Recently, single-incision thoracoscopic surgery (SITS) has been recognized as a favorable treatment choice for primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) compared with conventional three-port video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). However, conventional SITS bullectomy often results in collisions with surgical devices. Therefore, we devised a method of SITS using a chest wall pulley for lung excision (PulLE) and modified PulLE (mPulLE) system, which substitutes threads to eliminate such collisions...

INTRODUCTION: Theoretically, reducing the number of ports required in minimally invasive surgery for gastric cancer would further minimize trauma associated therewith. Advances in single-site surgery have afforded surgeons the ability to perform reduced-port distal gastrectomy via a robotic approach using the Single-Site™ system, eliminating restrictions on the movement of surgical instruments. METHODS: This phase I/II study was designed as a single-arm prospective trial of reduced-port robotic distal gastrectomy (RRDG) by a single surgeon (NCT02347956)...

Epiphrenic esophageal diverticulum is uncommon disease, which is defined as the herniation of the mucosa and submucosa through the muscle layers of the esophageal wall in distal third of the esophagus. Traditionally, thoracotomy has been the preferred surgical approach. Recently, many surgeons have attempted minimally invasive surgeries for epiphrenic esophageal diverticula. They reported that minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for epiphrenic esophageal diverticula was a safe and feasible approach which had many advantages...

Valery S Shchesnovich
For N indistinguishable bosons or fermions impinged on a M-port Haar-random unitary network the average probability to count n 1, … n r particles in a small number r ≪ N of binned-together output ports takes a Gaussian form as N ≫ 1. The discovered Gaussian asymptotic law is the well-known asymptotic law for distinguishable particles, governed by a multinomial distribution, modified by the quantum statistics with stronger effect for greater particle density N/M. Furthermore, it is shown that the same Gaussian law is the asymptotic form of the probability to count particles at the output bins of a fixed multiport with the averaging performed over all possible configurations of the particles in the input ports...

Zheng Gong, Zhen Liu, Guangjun Zhang
Many vision measurement systems, especially in outdoor engineering, usually utilize glass ports to protect sensors against environmental influences. The refraction caused by glass ports lead to measurement errors in traditional single viewpoint model. Most existing methods only deal with the refraction that happens once, and the glass ports are required to be perpendicular to cameras or the orientations of glass ports are obtained by auxiliary equipment. This paper proposes a corrected 3D reconstruction model based on refraction geometry, which can be used for any number of glass ports with any orientations...

We present the theoretical background and analytical equations for calculating spectral reflectance and transmittance factors for plant leaves from data collected by a field spectroradiometer attached to a double-integrating sphere. The sphere constants required for the calculations are derived from measurements of an empty sample port and a diffuse reflectance panel. The new method is applied in measuring the spectra of leaves belonging to 13 tree species. The greatest advantages of a double-sphere system compared with the conventional single-sphere substitution method is the speed of measurements, ease of operation, and increased portability and field-ruggedness...

There has been little enthusiasm for performing robotic colectomy for colon cancer in recent years due to multiple factors, one being that the previous robotic systems such as the da Vinci Si(®) (dVSi) were poorly designed for multi-quadrant surgery. The new da Vinci Xi(®) (dVXi) system enables colectomy with central mesocolic excision to be performed easily in a single docking procedure. We developed a universal port placement strategy to allow right and left hemicolectomies to be performed via a suprapubic approach and a Pfannensteil extraction site...
