Laparoscopy And Surgery

Linda R Duska
With the modernization of laparoscopy and subsequent rapid uptake of the robotic platform, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) became the widely accepted standard of care for gynecologic cancer. Virtually all data supporting improved patient outcomes and oncologic safety for MIS in gynecologic cancer derive from retrospective studies. Nevertheless, the advantages of MIS rapidly became accepted, not only due to perceived benefits to patients. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AIM: To report on the feasibility and the safety of a novel strategy in patients with colorectal cancer and synchronous liver metastases (SLM) requiring major or complex procedures for both the primary and liver deposits. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The strategy consisted in performing the two major procedures (liver first and colorectal) by laparoscopy within a short interval in order to keep both oncological advantages and short-terms outcome benefits. RESULTS: Two patients were treated with this strategy: one with a laparoscopic resection of segment VIII extended to the segment IVb followed by the laparosopic rectal resection; the second with a laparoscopic left hepatectomy with a microwave ablation of the lesion located in the segment VII followed by the laparoscopic resection of the sigmoid colon...

BACKGROUND: Over the last three decades, laparoscopic appendicectomy (LA) has become the routine treatment for uncomplicated acute appendicitis. The role of laparoscopic surgery for complicated appendicitis (gangrenous and/or perforated) remains controversial due to concerns of an increased incidence of post-operative intra-abdominal abscesses (IAA) in LA compared to open appendicectomy (OA). The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of LA versus OA for complicated appendicitis...

Introduction: Hydatidosis is a zoonotic infection and treatment is mandatory to avoid complications. Surgery remains the first choice in the treatment especially for CE2-CE3b cysts. Open or laparoscopic approaches are available. However, comparative studies are limited. Materials and Methods: Data of patients who underwent cystotomy/partial cystectomy for liver hydatidosis between January 2012 and September 2016 (n=77) were evaluated retrospectively. Recurrent cases and the patients with previous hepatobiliary surgery were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is growing in popularity. The increased diameter of the umbilical incision might raise questions about the possibility of a greater risk of postoperative incisional hernia in comparison to conventional laparoscopy. This study aims to disclose the frequency of incisional hernia after SILS in long-term follow-up as well as to reveal the factors predisposing patients to this feared complication. METHODS: The patient collective consists of cholecystectomy and appendectomy patients, who were operated on using SILS technique...

Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) is a complicated procedure. To reduce the difficulty of the operation and standardize the surgical procedure, we explored a new operation mode, which we termed modularized LADG (MLADG). To further extend the new operation mode, we conducted this study to evaluate the short-term outcomes of MLADG for advanced gastric cancer, and determine the learning curve.Data from 100 consecutive patients who received LADG between October 2016 and October 2017 were retrospectively analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Robotic systems recently have been introduced to overcome technical limitations of conventional laparoscopic gastrectomy, especially for complex procedures [1]. We developed a set of procedural operation steps for robotic spleen-preserving splenic hilar lymphadenectomy, which is difficult and recommended in D2 lymph node (LN) dissection during total gastrectomy [2-4]. METHODS: The robotic operative procedures of splenic hilar lymphadenectomy using the da Vinci® Si system were demonstrated in a step-by-step manner, with technical tips for each step, in the video clip...

Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is an evolving strategy in the locoregional management of peritoneal surface malignancies, and the role of laparoscopy is expanding. Staging laparoscopy is routinely used to obtain tissue for diagnosis and assess extent of tumor burden. Laparoscopic CRS and HIPEC with curative intent is safe and effective in patients with a low disease burden. In patients with refractory malignant ascites, complete resolution of ascites and improvement in quality of life have been demonstrated with palliative laparoscopic HIPEC...

OBJECTIVE: Clinically suspected appendicitis is the most common nonobstetric surgical problem encountered in pregnancy. The diagnosis of appendicitis is hampered by equivocal symptoms during pregnancy. Ultrasonography (US) remains, as a rule, the imaging test of choice for the diagnosis of clinically suspected appendicitis during pregnancy and other imaging tools such as computed tomography (CT) or MRI are usually avoided. We evaluated the accuracy of US in the diagnosis of appendicitis during pregnancy...

Surgical resection is the only potentially curative treatment for patients with cholangiocarcinoma. For both perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (pCCA) and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA), 5-year overall survival of about 30% has been reported in large series. This review addresses several challenges in surgical management of cholangiocarcinoma. The first challenge is diagnosis: a biopsy is typically avoided because of the risk of seeding metastases and the low yield of a brush of the bile duct. However, about 15% of patients with suspected pCCA are found to have a benign diagnosis after resection...
