The overall survival of children with solid tumors has shown a substantial increase in the past decades due to progress in all of the disciplines involved in the treatment. The poor prognosis for advanced stages of disease and the morbidity related to therapeutic procedures are still a challenge. Innovations in the surgical treatment of solid tumors can contribute to increase the survival rate of affected children and to decrease the treatment-related morbidity. Considering these aspects, the successful implementation of innovations is described based on four examples...

PURPOSE: Localized vaginal rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is associated with a favorable prognosis, but strategies for local control remain controversial. The use of radiotherapy (RT) can have important long-term sequelae, while traditional resection involves major reconstructive surgery. We describe a new surgical approach employing a minimally-invasive resection and immediate reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Records from 4 consecutive patients with localized vaginal RMS managed in 4 major pediatric referral centers were reviewed...

It is important for practitioners to recognize that there are special considerations when performing gynecologic surgery in a pediatric or adolescent patient. A provider must be familiar with differences in anatomy, physiology, surgical technique, and psychosocial concerns. This can be challenging for a provider who does not routinely operate on patients in this population. A minimally invasive surgical approach is preferred in the pediatric and adolescent patient whenever possible. While a good command of laparoscopy in the adult patient is certainly a useful skill when operating on pediatric and adolescent patients, there are technical adaptations and challenges to consider...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative anxiety is common in pediatric patients. When dexmedetomidine is used alone for sedation as premedication, children tend to awaken when separated from their parents, and body movements occur during invasive procedures. We tested the hypothesis that the combination of dexmedetomidine and ketamine may be a useful premedication to alleviate preoperative anxiety and improve cooperation during intravenous cannulation in pediatric patients, while producing minimal adverse events...

Despite increasing popularity of minimal-invasive techniques in the pediatric population, their use in diagnosis and management of pediatric malignancy is still debated. Moreover, there is limited evidence to clarify this controversy due to low incidence of each individual type of pediatric tumor, huge diversity of the disease entity, heterogeneity of surgical technique, and lack of well-designed studies on pediatric oncologic minimal-invasive surgery. However, a rapid development of medical instruments and technologies accelerated the current trend toward less invasive surgery, including oncologic endosurgery...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgeons must acquire complex technical skills while minimizing patient risk, a challenge that is magnified in pediatric surgery. Trainees need realistic practice with frequent detailed feedback, but human grading is tedious and subjective. We aim to validate a novel motion-tracking system and algorithms that automatically evaluate trainee performance of a pediatric laparoscopic suturing task. METHODS: Subjects (n = 32) ranging from medical students to fellows performed two trials of intracorporeal suturing in a custom pediatric laparoscopic box trainer after watching a video of ideal performance...

Percutaneous techniques and robot-assisted surgical systems have enabled minimally invasive procedures that offer reduced scarring, recovery time, and complications compared to traditional open surgeries. Despite these improvements, access to diseased sites using the standard, straight needle-based percutaneous techniques is still limited for certain procedures due to intervening tissues. These limitations can be further exacerbated in specific patient groups, particularly pediatric patients, whose anatomy does not fit the traditional tools and systems...

During the last 10 years, there have been major technological achievements in pediatric interventional cardiology. In addition, there have been several advances in cardiac imaging, especially in 3-dimensional imaging of echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and cineangiography. Therefore, more types of congenital heart diseases can be treated in the cardiac catheter laboratory today than ever before. Furthermore, lesions previously considered resistant to interventional therapies can now be managed with high success rates...

Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt placement is among the most common surgical procedures undertaken by neurosurgeons. Complications arising from the thoracic portion of the shunt are relatively rare in comparison with those of the intraventricular and peritoneal portions. Disruption of primary breast development following VP shunt placement has not previously been reported. The authors describe the case of a 15-year-old girl referred to the plastic surgery department with a significant right breast deformity and associated asymmetry following VP shunt placement performed during the neonatal period...
