Laparoscopic retrieval of unusual intra-abdominal foreign bodies in children

We present here three cases where two needles and a belt buckle were removed by laparoscopy thus avoiding a laparotomy. These cases prove that laparoscopy should be the first choice for such kind of retrieval. These cases had a successful outcome with full recovery.

ConclusionPortal and mesenteric venous thrombosis after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is an unusual complication but it has life threatening consequences if it is not diagnosed early and treated adequately. The patients with porto-mesenteric venous thrombosis (PMVT) usually present themselves with vague abdominal symptoms. As so, the physicians should have high index of suspicion to recommend computed tomography (CT) abdomen to confirm diagnosis and start adequate treatment.

ConclusionsPeritoneal carcinomatosis of unknown primary site may be caused by an occult appendiceal adenocarcinoma. This error in diagnosis may lead to suboptimal treatment. Surgical exploration to visualize a normal appendix should occur prior to making a definitive diagnosis of peritoneal carcinomatosis of unknown primary site.

Abstract Approximately 5% of intestinal obstruction cases are caused by internal herniation. Caecal herniation through the foramen of Winslow is considered a rare event. The management of caecal herniation remains challenging due to the lack of literature highlighting this pathology. A 66-year-old woman was admitted with a 24-hour history of epigastric pain radiating to the back. The pain was associated with nausea and vomiting of gastric contents. On examination, the abdomen was soft with mild tenderness but no signs of peritonism or distension. The abdominal x-ray and a computed tomography were in keeping with c...

Publication date: Available online 12 September 2019Source: Surgery (Oxford)Author(s): Rishabh Singh, Andrea ScalaAbstractUse of minimally invasive approaches to acute abdominal surgical emergencies has increased in recent decades. Uptake has been slower than for elective surgery, however, with concerns regarding inadvertent injury and operative time being most frequently cited. Laparoscopy for abdominal pain has shown to be safe and is a useful diagnostic procedure in the context of unexplained abdominal pain. Minimally invasive surgery has also been shown to be the approach of choice in appendicitis and cholecystitis. La...

Abstract Small gauze is used in laparoscopy; therefore, retention of gauze can occur. We experienced a case of retention of a radiopaque thread that ruptured from a piece of gauze and moved into the peritoneum during a scheduled laparoscopy. The patient was a 65-year-old woman who underwent laparoscopic-assisted transverse colon resection for transverse colon cancer. A commercial gauze commonly used for laparoscopy was used during the surgery. To more easily identify the gauze during surgery, radiopaque threads extending up to 3.0 cm from the two diagonal corners of the gauze body were attached. After wound...

Current management of Morgagni type diaphragmatic hernias involves surgical intervention, which is traditionally done by open laparotomy, laparoscopy or thoracoscopic approach. Here we present the case of a two year old female with a Morgagni type congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) found during wo...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe number of minimal invasive gynecological oncological operations performed especially for endometrial cancer is increasing rapidly parallel with the increase in robotic systems in hospitals. This paper focuses on evaluating the studies comparing robotic surgery with laparoscopic and open surgery in patients with endometrial cancer in light of current literature.Recent FindingsWhen the current literature is examined, it is seen that the results of robotic surgery have similar results to laparoscopy such as length of hospital stay, postoperative pain, recovery in a short time, and less blood vesse...
