INTRODUCTION: Anastomotic margin tissue perfusion is recognized as critical to successful colorectal anastomosis creation. Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging with indocyanine green (ICG) is the most common modality used by surgeons as an adjunct to clinical assessment in confirming the adequacy of tissue perfusion. Tissue oxygenation as a surrogate for tissue perfusion has been described in a variety of surgical specialties but its use in colorectal surgery has been limited. Here, we report our experience using a handheld tissue-oxygen meter, IntraOx, for the evaluation of colorectal tissue bed oxygen saturation (StO2) and compared its utility with NIR-ICG in identifying the viability of colonic tissue before anastomosis in a range of colorectal procedures...

BACKGROUND: Cystic tumors in the presacral space represent a rare pathology. In case of symptoms, but particularly due to the danger of malignant degeneration, surgical removal is indicated. Due to the complex position in the pelvis with its proximity to important anatomic structures, the choice of the surgical approach is decisive. METHODS: To present an overview of the recent knowledge of presacral tumors, a PubMed-based literature review was performed. Subsequently, we present 5 cases where different surgical strategies were evaluated including a video of a laparoscopic removal...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is associated with an increased risk of ventral hernia development and recurrence rates after ventral hernia repair (VHR). The metabolic derangements caused by obesity can also lead to many postoperative complications. Therefore, it is a common practice to attempt weight loss before VHR. However, there is still no consensus on optimal preoperative management for obese patients with a ventral hernia. This study aims to perform a meta-analysis to evaluate the effect of preoperative weight optimization on VHR outcomes...

Valvuloplastic esophagogastrostomy by the double flap technique (VPEG-DFT) after proximal gastrectomy for early proximal gastric cancer or esophagogastric junctional cancer (EGJC) is a promising procedure to prevent reflux. However, the transhiatal procedure alone for alimentary reconstruction is sometimes too complex because of the short esophageal remnant. Therefore, additional transthoracic procedures are needed in some patients with EGJC. Although additional thoracoscopic surgery has been reported, no reports to date have described robotic transthoracic VPEG-DFT after excision of EGJC...
