Web-video-mining-supported workflow modeling for laparoscopic surgeries
Conclusion With the webSWM method, abundant web videos were selected and a reliable SWM was modeled in a short time with low labor cost. Satisfied performances in mining web videos and learning surgery-related knowledge show that the webSWM method is promising in scaling knowledge for intelligent surgical systems.

The back pain and odd growth seemed to indicate cancer. But one doctor had a different idea entirely.
This study examines quality of life in symptomatic geriatric patients after elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy.MethodsPatients> 65 years of age who underwent elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy at a tertiary care center were administered the 12-Item Short Form Survey (SF-12) and a gastrointestinal survey pre-operatively and post-operatively (within 6 and 18 months of surgery). Quality of life characteristics were compared amongst visit type in univariate and multivariate settings, with a mixed-model regression.ResultsOur sample included 30 patients. Pain frequency (p = 0.004) and pain severity (p = 0.013) scores im...
AbstractIntra-thoracic migration of a gallstone spilled during laparoscopic cholecystectomy is an extremely rare complication. This is a video documenting the successful thoracoscopic management of a patient who presented with this entity.
We report a case of ascites development in a young female immediately after Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, for which a cause cannot be found. On review of medical literature, there are few similar case reports, based on them; it can be ascertained to acute allergic reaction to the material used during the procedure may be the CO2 or the electrocautery.

Conclusions: Surgical training is possible in a singlesession biliary emergency service without significantly impacting theatre utilization times or early patient outcomes. Further dedicated studies will allow individual learning curves to be determined. PMID: 31488943 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: SPLC has shown relevant procedure and postoperative outcomes when compared to traditional 4PLC. The technique has proved to be promising even in cases of acute cholecystitis considered to date a relative contraindication. Further studies are needed to confirm its safety and feasibility in this setting. In contrast with the current evidence of increased costs for the single-port technique, a reduction of material and hospitalization costs was experienced in our study.
