INTRODUCTION: Achalasia is a rare disorder in children who are commonly treated by laparoscopic Heller's myotomy (LHM). However, there are no large studies evaluating the results of LHM in the pediatric population, and the need of a concomitant fundoplication remains unclear. The aim of the study is to appraise the results of LHM based on a systematic literature review. MATERIALS AND METHODS: MEDLINE search of the English literature was performed for "achalasia," "children," "laparoscopy," "Heller," "myotomy," and "cardiomyotomy...

High-resolution manometry (HRM) is the gold-standard diagnostic tool for achalasia of the esophagus. Laparoscopic Heller-Dor technique is the preferred surgical approach with success rate estimated 90%. The use of intraoperative HRM provides real-time estimation of intraluminal esophageal pressures and identifies the exact points of esophageal luminal pressure during laparoscopy. Ten patients with achalasia underwent surgery. All patients preoperatively completed 1 manometric study and Quality of Life questionnaires (EORTC QLQ-C30 version 3...

BACHGROUND: Since the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy report in situs inversus totalis in 1991, the safety of this procedure has still been questionable. A few surgeons were preferred to perform an open cholecystectomy due to technical difficulties as well as various anatomical varieties that can be faced during surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case report of a 50 years old patient came with epigastric pain that radiated to her left shoulder, intermittent nausea, vomiting and bloating after some meals...

PURPOSE: Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) has been demonstrated to be a feasible alternative to multiport laparoscopy, but concerns over port-site incisional hernias have not been well addressed. A retrospective study was performed to determine the rate of port-site hernias as well as influencing risk factors for developing this complication. METHODS: A review of all consecutive patients who underwent SILS over 4 years was conducted using electronic medical records in a multi-specialty integrated healthcare system...

BACKGROUND: Every abdominal incision can lead to early (e. g. abdominal infection) and late complications (e. g. hernia). The correct incision is often important to have optimal access to the surgical area and to keep complications low. OBJECTIVE: An analysis of the recent literature was carried out to clarify which access routes have advantages over other types of incision. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A literature search was carried out in the following databases: Cochrane database of systematic reviews (CDSR), Cochrane library, Medline and PubMed...

Laparoscopic surgery is applied today worldwide to most digestive procedures. In some of them, such as cholecystectomy, Nissen's fundoplication or obesity surgery, laparoscopy has become the standard in practice. In others, such as colon or gastric resection, the laparoscopic approach is frequently used and its usefulness is unquestionable. More complex procedures, such as esophageal, liver or pancreatic resections are, however, more infrequently performed, due to the high grade of skill necessary. As a result, there is less clinical evidence to support its implementation...

Laparoendoscopic single site (LESS) surgery is a more recent advance in the progression of minimally invasive surgery. This study was undertaken to assess lessons learned after our first 250 LESS fundoplications for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). All patients undergoing LESS fundoplications were prospectively followed from 2008 to 2014. Patients scored the frequency/severity of their symptoms before/after LESS fundoplication using a Likert scale (0 = never/not bothersome to 10 = always/very bothersome)...

Gastroesophageal reflux is very common in children and often leads to reflux-esophagitis, peptic esophageal strictures, Barrett's esophagus. If the conservative treatment fails a patient needs surgical treatment as well as those who suffer from complications and hiatal hernia. The most popular operation is laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication with the efficiency of more than 80%. However, the main challenge is redo fundoplications. Hiatal hernia and operation technique are considered to be the most probable risk-factors...

Up to 77% of Down syndrome (DS) patients have associated structural or functional gastrointestinal abnormalities. Functional disturbances, such as processes affecting the enteric nervous system, can often affect the outcome of corrective surgical procedures. Recently, an association between DS and achalasia has been reported. In this report we present a 28-year-old male patient with a history of Down syndrome and achalasia, who presented with recurrent dysphagia, gastroesophageal reflux, and recurrent aspirations...

Although anti-reflux surgery has been used liberally over the past decades for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), few studies report follow-up after 10 years. This study was undertaken to report follow-up on 100 consecutive GERD patients up to 22 years after utilizing a laparoscopic fundoplication. Hundred consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic fundoplication for GERD were prospectively followed beginning in 1992. The frequency and severity of symptoms before and after laparoscopic fundoplication were scored on a Likert scale (1 = never/none to 10 = always/very bothersome)...

Three types of congenital diaphragmatic hernias( Bochdalek hernia, Morgagni hernia, and esophageal hiatus hernia) are described with case presentation. In the Bochdalek hernia, the most common type of congenital diaphragmatic hernia, abdominal contents pass into the thorac bia diaphragmatic defect, limiting the space available for the developing lungs. Resulting lung hypoplasia, many infants experience severe respiratory distress within minutes of birth and may require resuscitation and stabilization of cardio-pulmonary function prior to surgery...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic repair of paraesophageal hernia (PEH) with fundoplication is currently the preferred elective strategy, but emergent cases are often done open without an anti-reflux (AR) procedure. This study examined PEH repair in elective and urgent/emergent settings and investigated patient characteristic influence on the use of adjunctive techniques, such as AR procedures or gastrostomy tube (GT) placement. METHODS: Utilizing the University HealthSystem Consortium Clinical Database Resource Manager, selected discharge data were retrieved using International Classification of Disease 9 diagnosis codes for PEH and procedure specific codes...

PURPOSE: A surgical gastrostomy is mandatory in cases where a PEG is not feasible. Various minimally invasive techniques have been described, but many involve unusable materials in small children and/or have risk of disunion. We describe a technique for true Stamm gastrostomy performed by laparoscopy (LSG) with a purse string suture and four points of attachment onto the wall. METHOD: We reviewed 20 children who underwent an LSG from 2010 to 2013. After incision of the skin at the location planned for the gastrostomy, using three 3-5mm ports the stomach is fixed to the wall by three suspension stitches, which are entered and then emerged subcutaneously...

INTRODUCTION: While the penetrance of robotic surgery into field of urology and gynecology has been significant, general surgeons have been slower adopters. We sought to compare laparoscopy and RAS among five different general surgical procedures with various penetrance of MIS. METHODS: Following IRB approval, the New York Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System administrative data were used to identify five common laparoscopic general surgery procedures: cholecystectomy, colectomy, esophageal fundoplication (EF), Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) between 2008 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: The efficacy and safety of magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) with the LINX device (Torax Medical) has been reported in several short-and long-term studies, rivaling historic results of laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF), but with fewer side effects. However, there have been no studies comparing patients with similar disease to validate these results. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 1-year outcomes of patients undergoing MSA and LNF from June 2010 to June 2013...

In the presence of long-standing and severe gastroesophageal reflux disease, patients can develop various complications, including a shortened esophagus. Standard preoperative testing in these patients should include endoscopy, esophagography, and manometry, whereas the objective diagnosis of a short esophagus must be made intraoperatively following adequate mediastinal mobilization. If left untreated, it is a contributing factor to the high recurrence rate following fundoplications or repair of large hiatal hernias...

REVIEW
Brandon T Grover, Shanu N Kothari
Patient satisfaction with primary antireflux surgery is high, but a small percentage of patients experience recurrent reflux and dysphagia, requiring reoperation. The major anatomic causes of failed fundoplication are slipped fundoplication, failure to identify a short esophagus, and problems with the wrap. Minimally invasive surgery has become more common for these procedures. Options for surgery include redo fundoplication with hiatal hernia repair if needed, conversion to Roux-en-Y anatomy, or, as a last resort, esophagectomy...
