BACKGROUND: A high level of psychomotor skills is required to perform minimally invasive surgery (MIS) safely. To be able to measure these skills is important in the assessment of surgeons, as it enables constructive feedback during training. The aim of this study was to test the validity of an objective and automatic assessment method using motion analysis during a laparoscopic procedure on an animal organ. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Experienced surgeons in laparoscopy (experts) and medical students (novices) performed a cholecystectomy on a porcine liver box model...

BACKGROUND: The success of newly introduced surgical techniques is generally primarily assessed by surgical outcome measures. However, data on medical liability should concomitantly be used to evaluate provided care as they give a unique insight into substandard care from patient's point of view. The aim of this study was to analyze the number and type of medical claims after laparoscopic gynecologic procedures since the introduction of advanced laparoscopy two decades ago. Secondly, our objective was to identify trends and/or risk factors associated with these claims...

Endometriomas are a rare cause of abdominal wall pain. We report a case of a port site endometrioma presenting with an umbilical swelling. The patient underwent a laparoscopy for pelvic endometriosis 6 months previously and presented with a swelling around her umbilical port site scar associated with cyclical pain during menses. Ultrasound scan reported a well-defined lesion in the umbilicus and MRI scanning excluded other pathology. As she was symptomatic, she underwent an exploration of the scar and excision of the endometrioma with resolution of her symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Therapeutic laparoscopy (TL) for penetrating abdominal trauma (PAT) is controversial because the management of multiple bowel injuries is challenging and the conversion rate is high. However, the laparoscopic-assisted approach (LAA) allows easy management of multiple bowel injuries but not investigated in a trauma setting. The aim of this study was to investigate its role in management of multiple bowel injuries and to compare LAA with therapeutic laparoscopy performed fully laparoscopically (FTL)...

Recommendations for the clinical practice of Nice-Saint-Paul de Vence The treatment of advanced epithelial ovarian cancer is multidisciplinary involving surgical teams and surgery and medical oncology, experienced in the management of this disease, following published quality criteria. The strategy must be validated in multidisciplinary consultation meeting (RCP) before any treatment. The pre-therapeutic assessment includes the histological diagnosis, evaluation of the tumor extension (biological assessment, markers, imaging, laparoscopy), assessment of the general state (operability), in order to answer the question of feasibility of an initial optimal surgery...

Despite higher costs for robotic assisted laparoscopy (RAL) than standard laparoscopy (SL), RAL treatment of endometriosis is performed without established indications. PubMed/MEDLINE was searched for 'robotic surgery' and 'endometriosis' or 'gynaecological benign disease' from January 2000 to December 2016. Full-length studies in English reporting original data were considered. Among 178 articles retrieved, 17 were eligible: 11 non-comparative (RAL only) and six comparative (RAL versus SL). Non-comparative studies included 445 patients...

BACKGROUND: There is significant variation surrounding the indications, surgical approaches, and outcomes for children undergoing antireflux procedures (ARPs) resulting in geographic variation of care. Our purpose was to quantify this geographic variation in the utilization of ARPs in children. METHODS: A cross-sectional analysis of the 2009 Kid's Inpatient Database was performed to identify patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease or associated diagnoses. Regional surgical utilization rates were determined, and a mixed effects model was used to identify factors associated with the use of ARPs...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) for gastric cancer may prevent the loss of body weight and lean body mass resulting from reduced surgical stress in comparison to open distal gastrectomy (ODG). A multicenter phase III trial conducted by the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG0912 trial) was performed to confirm the non-inferiority of LADG to ODG for stage I gastric cancer in terms of relapse-free survival. METHODS: This study was performed as a single-institution exploratory analysis using the data of the patients from our hospital who were enrolled in the JCOG0912 phase III trial...

The Hartmann procedure - primarily - was introduced for the treatment of cancerous diseases of sigmoid colon and rectum. In the last few years it was performed in cases with complicated inflammation of the left colon, colon cancers with bowel obstruction or perforation, or in the case of insufficiency of the anastomoses, or in urgent operations after traumatics bowel injuries, when making the anastomosis is at very high risk. Later on the restoration of the continuity of the GI tract can be done traditionally (by laparotomy) or laparoscopically...

Laparoscopic surgery is proven equal technique to open rectal surgery. Despite advantages, some problems in case of low rectal surgery are existing: visualization of the pelvis, securing safe distal resection margin, preparing single stapled rectal stump with safe conjunction to the colorectal anastomosis. Approximately 500 procedures have been performed worldwide until today by applying Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (TaTME) technique, which evolved from a combination of laparoscopy and transanal approach...
