BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Several reports have demonstrated the safety of pure natural-orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (P-NOTES) using transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) and embryonic NOTES (E-NOTES; laparoscopic surgery through the umbilicus). This study was performed to compare the safety and applicability of NOTES rectosigmoidectomy between E-NOTES and P-NOTES in a swine model. PATIENTS AND METHODS: E-NOTES was conducted through a single port using laparoscopic instruments (n = 11)...

With the advances of videolaparoscopic surgery, this approach had become the treatment of choice for cholelithiasis. However, about 5% to 10% may present common bile duct lithiasis. Most surgeons have still difficulties to deal with this situation and do prefer resolve with open surgery or with further endoscopic approach. We present a case of a 60-year-old man, with 18 months history of right upper quadrant pain, weight loss and jaundice. He was referred with diagnostic of pancreatic cancer. Laboratory investigation showed increased bilirubin (10 mg/dL), alkaline phosphatase and GGT...

INTRODUCTION: Gallstones are a common condition in bariatric patients after a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). The management of ductal stones is challenging due to the altered gastrointestinal anatomy. Various techniques have been reported to manage bile duct stones. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present the successful percutaneous trans hepatic management of common bile duct stones after LRYGB. One year after a LRYGB for morbid obesity, a 59-year-old female presented with acute cholecystitis...

BACKGROUND: An increasing number of minimally invasive oesophagogastrectomies (MIOG) are being performed. However, the complexity of the surgical skills required and the steep learning curve have thus far confined the minimally invasive approach to selected tertiary centres. The oesophagogastric and the oesophagojejunal anastomosis can be challenging and often time-consuming. The recently developed transorally inserted anvil (OrVil(™)) is a technique aimed to simplify the anastomotic procedure...

BACKGROUND: Complicated hepatobiliary dilatation is characterized by congenital cystic dilatation of the biliary tree extending to involve the intrahepatic biliary channels. Some studies have reported on laparoscopic excision for common choledochal cyst, yet there are little reports on laparoscopic surgery for congenital choledochal cyst with intrahepatic bile duct dilatation. In this paper, we present our experiences in laparoscopic extrahepatic bile duct excision combined with ductoplasty and hepaticojejunostomy for complicated hepatobiliary dilatation...

We present the case of a 63-year-old man that was admitted for melena and severe anemia. Upper GI endoscopy and colonoscopy failed to identify the lesion responsible for bleeding, and enteroCT scan was also non-contributive to the diagnosis. Capsule endoscopy indicated possible jejunal bleeding but could not indicate the source of bleeding, recommending anterograde enteroscopy. Single balloon enteroscopy identified a 2 cm submucosal tumour in the distal part of the jejunum, with a macroscopic appearance suggesting a gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST)...

PURPOSE: The aim of the current study is to report the long-term outcomes after laparoscopic-assisted surgery compared with conventional open surgery within the context of the UK MRC CLASICC trial. Results from randomized trials have indicated that laparoscopic surgery for colon cancer is as effective as open surgery in the short term. Few data are available on rectal cancer, and long-term data on survival and recurrence are now required. METHODS: The United Kingdom Medical Research Council Conventional versus Laparoscopic-Assisted Surgery in Colorectal Cancer (UK MRC CLASICC; clinical trials number ISRCTN 74883561) trial study comparing conventional versus laparoscopic-assisted surgery in patients with cancer of the colon and rectum...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic-assisted surgery for colorectal cancer has been widely adopted without data from large-scale randomised trials to support its use. We compared short-term endpoints of conventional versus laparoscopic-assisted surgery in patients with colorectal cancer to predict long-term outcomes. METHODS: Between July, 1996, and July, 2002, we undertook a multicentre, randomised clinical trial in 794 patients with colorectal cancer from 27 UK centres. Patients were allocated to receive laparoscopic-assisted (n=526) or open surgery (n=268)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Laparoscopic-assisted surgery (LAC) is an alternative to open surgery for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). Endoscopic full-thickness resection (EFTR), a recently developed procedure, is increasingly used to resect GISTs originated from the muscularis propria. In this retrospective study, we aimed to compare EFTR with LAC as minimally invasive treatments for GISTs, especially those with a diameter <2 cm, originating from the muscularis propria. Moreover, we evaluated the clinical efficacy, safety, and feasibility of EFTR for GISTs...

AIM: To investigate our clinical experience with combined laparo-endoscopic Rendezvous (RV) for the treatment of patients affected by gallstones and common bile duct (CBD) stones and especially to study the never evaluated opinion of the endoscopist concerning the difficulty of the intraoperative endoscopic procedure during the RV in comparison with standard endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP). METHODS: Eighty consecutive patients affected by cholecystolithiasis and diagnosed or suspected CBD stones were treated with a standardized "tailored" RV...

BACKGROUND: Performing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in patients with prior Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery is challenging. Despite advancements in endoscopic technology, reaching the duodenum and entering the bile duct is still difficult. Laparoscopic assisted ERCP (LAERCP) allows the duodenum to be accessed through the excluded stomach. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study is to evaluate the success rates and complications in patients with prior RYGB anatomy who underwent LAERCP in a tertiary care center...

BACKGROUND: Patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) develop pancreatobiliary issues after surgery. Endoscopic management via the conventional route with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is quite limited due to the altered anatomy. Laparoscopic-assisted ERCP (LA-ERCP) via the excluded stomach has been highly successful. Reported use of laparoscopic-assisted EUS (LA-EUS) is extremely rare. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted at two tertiary referral centers for cases that involved laparoscopic-assisted ERCP and EUS...

Thanks to recent advances of therapeutic devices, the less invasive surgical explorations such as endoscopic submucosal resection( ESD) and laparoscopic surgery have widely gained an acceptance and become more common. During laparoscopic partial gastrectomy for submucosal tumor such as gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) of the stomach, it is important to avoid an excessive surgical resection of the gastric wall, which causes a deformity of the stomach and has a potential risk to decrease oral intake. We report here a successfully treated case without any deformity of the stomach and complications using laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) for intraluminal type of GIST...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic wedge resections are increasingly utilized to treat gastric submucosal tumors (SMTs). However, laparoscopic wedge resection is not applicable for tumors located near the gastric inlet or outlet and requires resection of relatively large sections of healthy stomach, particularly if laparoscopic linear staplers are used. METHODS: Twenty consecutive patients underwent laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) for resection of gastric SMTs...

Endoscopic full-thickness resection for subepithelial tumors is one of the more attractive proposed methods for less-invasive transluminal surgery but remains challenging in terms of safety and feasibility. Currently, laparoscopic endoscopic cooperative surgery is thought to be a more clinically acceptable approach. In targeting cancers, however, more advanced nonexposure techniques are required to avoid the risk of iatrogenic tumor seeding. By combining these techniques with possible regional lymphadenectomy using sentinel node navigation surgery, an ideal minimally invasive, function-preserving gastric resection can be achieved even in possible node-positive cancers...

Laparoscopic wedge resection is a useful procedure for treating patients with submucosal tumor (SMT) including gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) of the stomach. However, resection of intragastric-type SMTs can be problematic due to the difficulty in accurately judging the location of endoluminal tumor growth, and often excessive amounts of healthy mucosa are removed; thus, full-thickness local excision using laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) is a promising procedure for these cases...

AIM: To assess the feasibility, safety, and advantages of minimally invasive laparoscopic-endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS) for gastric submucosal tumors (SMT). METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 101 consecutive patients, who had undergone partial, proximal, or distal gastrectomy using LECS for gastric SMT at Peking Union Medical College Hospital from June 2006 to April 2013. All patients were followed up by visit or telephone. Clinical data, surgical approach, pathological features such as the size, location, and pathological type of each tumor; and follow-up results were analyzed...
