OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of obesity and other comorbidities as well as route of surgery with postoperative outcomes, as well as 30- and 90-day inpatient cost of care after hysterectomy for endometrial cancer. METHODS: From the 2013 National Readmission Database release, patients who underwent hysterectomy for endometrial cancer were included. Obesity was classified as non-obese (body mass index [BMI] < 35 kg/m2 ); class I/II obesity (BMI ≥ 35 but <40 kg/m2 and without obesity related medical condition qualifying it as morbid obesity), class III obesity (BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2 OR BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2 with an obesity-related medical condition)...

BACKGROUND: Reduced-port laparoscopic gastrectomy further minimizes the invasiveness of laparoscopic gastrectomy, thereby improving patient quality of life. However, suboptimal ergonomics and visualization are challenges to performing reduced-port laparoscopy. As the application of a robotic surgical system may help overcome these challenges, the present study was performed to evaluate the short-term outcomes of reduced-port totally robotic distal subtotal gastrectomy. METHOD: An initial 40 consecutive gastric cancer patients treated with reduced-port totally robotic distal subtotal gastrectomy with lymph node dissection from February 2016 to February 2017 were retrospectively reviewed...

For centuries, surgeons have relied on their sense of touch to identify vital structures such as blood vessels in traditional open surgery. Over the past two decades, surgeons have shifted to minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approaches, including laparoscopic surgery, which include benefits such as less scarring, less risk for infection, and quicker recovery times. In fact, some surgeries such as cholecystectomies have seen more than an 80% adoption of this technique because of those benefits. However, due to the fundamental challenges associated with using laparoscopic surgery, there has been a lower adoption in more complex specialties, such as colorectal and thoracic surgery, where the field of surgery has bleeding, fat, scar tissue, and adhesions...

PURPOSE: Anastomotic leak (AL) is a major complication of rectal cancer surgery. Despite advances in surgical practice, rates of AL have remained static at around 10-15%. The aetiology of AL is multifactorial, but one of the most crucial risk factors, which is mostly under the control of the surgeon, is blood supply to the anastomosis. The MRC/NIHR IntAct study will determine whether assessment of anastomotic perfusion using a fluorescent dye (Indocyanine Green) and near-infrared laparoscopy can minimise the rate of anastomotic leak as compared to conventional white light laparoscopy...

Esophageal surgery has been recognized as very challenging for surgeons and risky for patients. Thoracoscopic approach have proved its benefit in esophageal surgery but has some drawbacks as tremor and limited degrees of freedom, contra-intuitive movements and fulcrum effect of the surgical tools. Robotic technology has been developed with the intent to overcome these limitations of the standard laparoscopy or thoracoscopy. These benefits of robotic procedure are most advantageous when operating in remote areas difficult to reach as in esophageal surgery...

Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PNENs) are extremely rare neoplasms of the pancreas. They originate from pancreatic islet cells, and from the very beginning, cancer cells may or may not show hormone hypersecretion. Currently, surgical treatment is the only therapeutic method that significantly prolongs life expectancy, and in such cases it is a method of choice. In the paper, a review of literature based on the Medline database and including mainly the period of 2013 to 2017 was performed. In each case an operating surgeon is responsible for selection of a method used for surgical treatment...
