PURPOSE: To compare sonohysterosalpingography (sono-HSG) with foam instillation (HyFoSy) versus saline solution (HyCoSy) in the evaluation of tubal patency. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 37 infertile women, scheduled for laparoscopy. The women were randomized into two groups: HyFoSy (group I) and HyCoSy (group II). The patients of both groups underwent laparoscopy with dye test. We assessed the diagnostic performance (sensitivity, specificity, and overall accuracy) of HyFoSy and HyCoSy, compared with laparoscopy and dye test, in the assessment of tubal patency...

BACKGROUND: Electromechanical power morcellation is an important tool of modern laparoscopy. Recent reports on the spread of previously undetected malignancy by power morcellation indicate the need for additional protective devices to reduce this risk. We conducted a study to obtain the first data concerning the safety of an endobag with three closable ports during morcellation and subsequent bag extraction under in vitro conditions, mimicking the settings in our operating theater. The second purpose of the study was to establish a minimal width of the skin incision necessary to safely extract the sealed bag after morcellation...

BACKGROUND: Sentinel Lymph Node (SLN) sampling may significantly reduce surgical morbidity by avoiding needless radical lymphadenectomy. In gynaecological cancers, the current practice in the UK is testing the accuracy of SLN detection using radioactive isotopes within the context of clinical trials. However, radioactive tracers pose significant logistic problems. We, therefore, conducted a pilot, observational study to assess the feasibility of a novel optical imaging device for SLN detection in gynaecological cancers using near infrared (NIR) fluorescence...

Tuberculosis is endemic in many developing countries of the world including Bangladesh. Genital tuberculosis is a significant cause of infertility in the women of these countries. The diagnosis of genital tuberculosis in infertile women is difficult as most of the cases are usually asymptomatic. A high index of clinical suspicion is required. Genital tuberculosis always affects the fallopian tubes. It affects the endometrium in half of the cases. In addition to tuberculin skin tests and interferon gamma release assays, procedures like hysterosalpingography, laparoscopy-dye test, endometrial curettage and laparoscopy with multiple sampling for smear microscopy and culture for mycobacterium tuberculosis can detect the cases...

OBJECTIVE: To study if neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are present in the peritoneal fluid of endometriosis patients. NETs play a crucial role in fighting against microorganisms. However, exaggerated NET production may lead to tissue damage in their vicinity in pathological conditions. Our study evaluates the presence of NETs in endometriosis peritoneal fluid. STUDY DESIGN: Peritoneal fluid (PF) was collected in a case-control study from 52 women, who underwent either diagnostic or operative laparoscopy...

INTRODUCTION: The accurate evaluation of tubal patency as well of the morphologic characteristics of the uterine cavity is a fundamental step in the diagnostic work-up for infertility. Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy and dye have long been regarded as the reference methods to assess uterine morphology and tubal patency, respectively. However, their technical and clinical limitations have supported the introduction of an emerging technique: hysterosalpingo contrast sonography (HyCoSy), which has recently been improved with the use of modern contrast agents and three-dimensional resolution...

INTRODUCTION: The use of the endoscope for the calibration of the gastric sleeve, instead of the standard use of the bougie, is a safe procedure and gives the surgeon a higher sense of security. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of the use of endoscopic guidance on postoperative complications and mid-term results of the bariatric procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective, nonrandomized study was performed at the General University Hospital of Elche (Alicante, Spain) between 2010 and 2013...

Generally, laparoscopic artificial insemination (LAI) provides a higher success rate than of cervical insemination in goats. However, the sperm distribution after LAI in goats remains unknown, particularly when frozen-thawed semen is used. This study evaluated the distribution of frozen-thawed goat spermatozoa after LAI and compared the effects of sperm numbers and deposition sites (unilateral and bilateral sites) on pregnancy rate. In experiment 1, the frozen-thawed spermatozoa were stained either with CellTracker Green CMFDA (CT-Green) or CellTracker Red CMPTX (CT-Red), and in vitro evaluations of viability and motility were performed...

PURPOSE: The lymphatic preservation to prevent hydrocele formation after laparoscopic varicocelectomy is essential. Lymphatic sparing procedures using scrotal injection give a rate of mapping failures of 20%-30%. The aim of the present study is to standardize the technique of injection to perform a lymphatic sparing procedure in case of laparoscopic varicocelectomy. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 50 patients who underwent laparoscopic varicocelectomy from July 2010 to July 2013...

BACKGROUND: In gastrointestinal cancer surgery, particularly in early cancer, accurate tumor localization is important in order to determine the extent of resection. In laparoscopic surgery, because of the inability to palpate the lesion, the most prevalent method of localization is endoscopic tattooing. However, complicated maneuvering makes it difficult to control local dye spreading and dye leakage into the intraperitoneal cavity. A simpler, safe method is needed. In this study, we developed a novel method for applying fluorescence-coated endoscopic clips to visualize locations inside the colon during laparoscopic surgery...

The main causes of infertility are female factor (anovulation, tubal damage, endometriosis and ovarian failure), male factor (low or absent numbers of motile sperm in the ejaculate, and erectile dysfunction), or unexplained infertility. More than 80% of couples will conceive within one year if the woman is aged under 40 and they have regular sexual intercourse. Of those who fail to conceive in the first year, around half will do so in the second year, giving a cumulative pregnancy rate > 90%. A woman of reproductive age who has not conceived after a year of regular sexual intercourse, and has no known cause of infertility, should be offered referral for further clinical assessment and investigation with her partner...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: We seek for the accurate and simple method for detecting sentinel nodes of gastric cancer which can be popularized in community hospitals. The indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence-guided method is reported to be sensitive. However, the ordinal fluorescence cameras have gray scale imaging and require a dark room. We have developed a new device, Hyper Eye Medical System (HEMS) which can simultaneously detect color and near-infrared rays and can be used under room light...
