The field of laparoscopic surgery has continued to grow exponentially over the years, prompting new innovative technologies. Despite substantial advancements, standard laparoscopic tools have undergone little design changes and fail to optimize mobility in limited spaces. Advancements in robotics have attempted to address this, allowing for increasing degrees of freedom and articulation of instruments. Even so, this system has proven to be cumbersome with questionable cost-effectiveness. In this study, we present the first use of a solely mechanical intuitively controlled articulating laparoscopic needle driver...

BACKGROUND: The most common causes of pain following lumbar spinal fusions are residual herniation, or foraminal fibrosis and foraminal stenosis that is ignored, untreated, or undertreated. The original surgeon may advise his patient that nothing more can be done in his opinion that the nerve was visually decompressed by the original surgery. Post-operative imaging or electrophysiological assessment may be inadequate to explain all the reasons for residual or recurrent symptoms. Treatment of failed lumbar spinal fusions by repeat traditional open revision surgery usually incorporates more extensive decompression causing increased instability and back pain...

Spontaneous reossification of the sellar floor after transsphenoidal surgery has been rarely reported. Strontium ranelate, a divalent strontium salt, has been shown to increase bone formation, increasing osteoblast activity. We describe an unusual case of a young patient with Cushing's disease who was treated with strontium ranelate for low bone mass who experienced spontaneous sellar reossification after transsphenoidal surgery. A 21-year-old male presented with Cushing's features. His past medical history included delayed puberty diagnosed at 16 years, treated with testosterone for 3 years without further work-up...

OBJECTIVE: Prior studies have suggested a relationship between operative (Op) time and outcome after major vascular procedures. This study analyzed factors associated with Op time and outcome after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in the Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) registry. METHODS: Elective, primary CEAs without high anatomic risk or concomitant procedures from 2012 to 2015 in the VQI were analyzed (N = 26,327, performed by 1188 surgeons from 249 centers). Multivariable analysis was used to identify patient, procedure, and surgeon factors associated with Op time and major adverse events (MAEs), categorized as either technical (ipsilateral stroke, cranial nerve injury, reoperation) or cardiac (myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, dysrhythmia requiring treatment, surgical site infection, and death)...

Technical selection for surgical repair of complete atrioventricular septal defect (CAVSD) still remains controversial. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the modified single-patch (MP) technique with the two-patch (TP) technique for patients with CAVSD. Relevant studies comparing the MP technique with the TP technique were identified through a literature search using MEDLINE, EMBASE, Google Scholar, Cochrane Library, and the China National Knowledge Infrastructure databases. The variables were ventricular septal defect (VSD) size, cardiopulmonary bypass (CBP) time, aortic cross-clamp (ACC) time, intensive care unit stay, hospital stay, and other outcomes involving mortality, left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, atrioventricular valve regurgitation, residual septal shunt, atrioventricular block, and reoperation...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Single-stage surgery is usually applied to improving the symptoms of coexisting cervical and lumbar stenosis. In most cases, patients' willingness, surgery affordability, surgical trauma, surgical complications and patients' tolerance to surgery all limit the application of single-stage surgery. For patients who cannot receive single-stage surgery, we hope that we can find out by weighing up merits and flaws of the two surgical sites in order to make decision of prioritize one of the two surgery, so as to bring more benefits to the patients...
