BACKGROUND: Ectopic parathyroid glands may complicate the surgical approach to primary hyperparathyroidism. We describe a rare ectopic parathyroid location, the pyriform sinus. METHODS: Three patients, 2 after prior unsuccessful parathyroid exploration, were found to have ectopic parathyroid adenomas in the pyriform sinus. Two cases were identified by 4D-CT of the neck. The other was localized by a technetium 99m sestamibi single photon emission CT (SPECT). In each case, office endoscopy confirmed the lesions...

Minimally invasive surgical interventions in the gastrointestinal tract, such as Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD), are very difficult for surgeons when performed with standard flexible endoscopes. Robotic flexible systems have been identified as a solution to improve manipulation. However, only a few such systems have been brought to preclinical trials as of now. As a result, novel robotic tools are required.

AIM: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are quite rare tumors, but yet they are the most common mesenchymal lesions of gastrointestinal tract. Their outmost frequent origin site is stomach and presently surgical resection is the mainstay in the treatment of gastric non metastatic GIST. Their peculiar characteristic of growth and poor metastatic tendency make this tumors particularly prone to be managed by minimally invasive technique. Presenting our experience we want show the feasibility and safeness of laparoscopic approach for gastric GIST and its benefits versus traditional open surgery and pointing out short term and long terms outcomes...

Rhinoscopy became a formal field of study in the mid-nineteenth century as improvements in nasal specula were made and the potent vasoconstrictive effects of cocaine on the intranasal tissues were discovered. Since then, a multitude of advances in visualization and illumination have been made. The advent of the Storz-Hopkins endoscope in the mid-twentieth century represents a culmination of efforts spanning nearly 2 centuries, and illumination has evolved concomitantly. The future of endoscopic sinus surgery may integrate developing technologies, such as 3-dimensional endoscopy, augmented reality navigation systems, and robotic endoscope holders...

BACKGROUND: Flexible bendable instruments are key tools for performing surgical endoscopy. Being able to measure the 3D position of such instruments can be useful for various tasks, such as controlling automatically robotized instruments and analyzing motions. METHODS: An automatic method is proposed to infer the 3D pose of a single bending section instrument, using only the images provided by a monocular camera embedded at the tip of the endoscope. The proposed method relies on colored markers attached onto the bending section...

Implantable sensor systems are effective tools for biomedical diagnosis, visualization and treatment of various health conditions, attracting the interest of researchers, as well as healthcare practitioners. These systems efficiently and conveniently provide essential data of the body part being diagnosed, such as gastrointestinal (temperature, pH, pressure) parameter values, blood glucose and pressure levels and electrocardiogram data. Such data are first transmitted from the implantable sensor units to an external receiver node or network and then to a central monitoring and control (computer) unit for analysis, diagnosis and/or treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Conventional colonoscopy (CC) is the gold standard to diagnostic and therapeutic approach to colon. However, in few cases, cecal intubation could fail due to colon anatomy, patient compliance and physician expertise. Endotics robotic colonoscopy is a novel, safe, mini-invasive modality to explore the entire colon. Our aim was to assess, in a retrospective study, Endotics ability of cecal intubation in all cases in which CC failed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between January 2008 and December 2012, 276 Endotics robotic colonscopy examinations were performed at the Gastroenterology and Metabolic Diseases Unit of Pisa University Hospital, Pisa, Italy, in a series of consecutive patients who had undergone CC and failed cecal intubation...

This paper describes a new method to control the motion of swallowable wireless capsule endoscopy devices. A dynamic magnetic field produced by a set of external magnetic coils is used to manage the locomotion of the capsule. A permanent magnet is embedded into the capsule in order to manipulate the capsule by changing the external magnetic field strength for each specific position. The dynamic magnetic field is externally controlled to reach and maintain the equilibrium state for holding the capsule in a specific location...

Zenker's diverticulum is a common pathology in the transition zone of the posterior hypopharynx and esophagus. Surgical treatment is routinely performed by ENT and general surgeons. Besides the traditional open transcervical diverticulectomy, the introduction of transoral rigid treatment led to a paradigm change and is now the preferred treatment option for patients who are fit for general anesthesia. The implementation of interventional flexible endoscopy has opened another new micro-invasive approach for patients with high morbidity...
