BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) as a single-stage procedure for the treatment of morbid obesity is becoming increasingly popular. In undeveloped countries, the linear staples required to create the sleeve are not always available because of their high cost. As an alternative to the staples, the bipolar vessel sealer device could be used in bariatric surgery to divide and temporarily seal the stomach. SETTINGS: Universidad Central de Venezuela, Caracas, Venezuela...

AIM: Newer generation devices have attempted to accommodate a wider range of aortoiliac anatomies offering endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) to more patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). We aim to examine the anatomic suitability for the ultra-low profile Ovation endograft in our AAA patients and to compare them with other contemporary devices. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: 158 consecutive AAA patients treated with EVAR or open surgical repair (OSR) were tested for EVAR eligibility according to the most commonly used endografts' instructions for use...

Introduction: In the treatment of complex aneurysms, debranching is an extra-anatomical revascularization of visceral arteries followed by endograft coverage of the thoracoabdominal aorta. It eliminates the need for a thoracotomy and aortic clamping, but requires the performance of several technically demanding visceral anastomosis. In 2008, Lachat described visceral revascularization with the use of a sutureless distal anastomosis, performed by the telescoping of an endograft in the visceral branch, named VORTEC (Viabahn Open Revascularization TEChnique)...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic hepatectomy is difficult because surgeons must perform the transection using many (four and more) energy devices and without direct manual maneuvers. Here we introduce hepatic transection by the classical method with a few (two or three) energy devices. MATERIALS AND SURGICAL TECHNIQUE: We performed laparoscopic hepatectomy for 40 patients with hepatic tumor and liver dysfunction. For parenchymal transection, we used bipolar radiofrequency coagulation forceps connected to a voltage-controlled electrosurgical generator and ultrasonic dissector...

Transumbilical laparoscopic assisted appendectomy combines laparoscopic single port dissection with open appendectomy after exteriorization of the appendix through the port site. Compared to the conventional three-port approach, this technique provides an alternative with excellent cosmetic outcome. We developed a safe and effective technique to perform an intracorporeal single port appendectomy, using the same laparoscope employed in the extracorporeal procedure. Retrospective review of 71 consecutively performed intracorporeal single port appendectomies and 30 conventional three-port appendectomies in children 6 to 17 years of age...

OBJECTIVE: The natural history of type II endoleak (T2EL) after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) remains elusive; as such, treatment guidelines are ill defined. The purpose of this study was to better delineate the natural history of T2EL after EVAR for rAAA in an effort to determine the need for reintervention and optimal surveillance. METHODS: A retrospective record review was conducted of all patients undergoing EVAR for rAAA in two large tertiary care academic vascular centers...

INTRODUCTION: Endoleaks are a well-known complication after endovascular aortic repair. Type I endoleak-like phenomenon (also defined as a proximal pseudoaneurysm) post-open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is described as an anastomotic leak causing recurrent pressurization of the original aneurysm sac. It is rare but may result in aneurysmal sac rupture into the peritoneal cavity. REPORT: A 78-year-old man presented with a progressively enlarged aneurysmal sac due to proximal anastomotic degeneration of the proximal suture line associated with an outflow through a patent large lumbar vessel following a previous emergency open AAA repair...

Subintimal angioplasty of lower limb arterial occlusion carries a relatively higher risk of vessel perforation compared to transluminal angioplasty. Vessel perforation is a potentially life threatening complication which requires prompt recognition and management. They are usually managed by endovascular techniques such as low-pressure balloon tamponade, covered stents, and coil embolization of the ruptured artery. We describe a technique of treating vessel perforation following balloon angioplasty. Patient developed a large perforation of the proximal superficial femoral artery (SFA) after balloon inflation during subintimal angioplasty of complete SFA occlusion...

Introduction Splenectomy in children is nowadays widely performed by laparoscopy, the major risk being operative hemorrhage. We hereby compare the results of two different techniques of vascular control. Materials and Methods We retrospectively reviewed all patients undergoing a laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) for hematologic disease at a single institution from 2004 to 2013. LS was performed by a lateral approach. The 10-mm optic port was placed in the umbilicus and two 5-mm working ports were placed in the left lower quadrant and in the right upper quadrant near the midline...

The inhibition effects of ultrafine water mists on 6.5%, 8%, 9.5%, 11%, and 13.5% methane explosions were experimentally studied in a sealed visual vessel. The mist (10μm) produced by a mist generation system in the vessel was measured by a phase doppler particle analyzer. A high-speed camera was used to record the explosion flame affected by spraying concentration and a high frequency pressure sensor was used to acquire the explosion pressure. Meanwhile, the relationship between flame propagation and pressure rising with time was analyzed...

REVIEW
Zachary W Kostun, Edward Y Woo
Endovascular aneurysm repair has enabled a broad population of patients with infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm to be treated by a less-invasive technique. However, endovascular aneurysm repair has therapeutic limitations, including the need for lifelong surveillance and a higher rate of secondary interventions than open repair. These outcomes can promote patient dissatisfaction and result in increased health care costs and associated morbidity and mortality. The primary reason for secondary interventions is continued abdominal aortic aneurysm sac enlargement due to endoleaks...

A 68-years-old male with diabetes mellitius (HbA1c 6.5%) was referred for coronary artery bypass grafting(CABG). Preoperative coronary angiography (CAG) signed 3-vessels coronary disease[#2 75 %,#4 posterior descending (PD) 75%,#6 90%,#14 90%]. Minimally invasive coronary artery grafting (MICS CABG) was selected because of faster postoperative recovery than off-pump CABG via a 10 cm left 5th thoracotomy approach. In situ bilateral internal thoracic artery(BITA) and saphenous vein (SVG) was harvested by special manner using long type Harmonic...
