Conclusion Robotic-assisted excision of a vesicourachal diverticulum with concomitant use of cystoscopy is a safe, effective, and efficient technique for successful, minimally invasive, management of symptomatic urachal diverticula.
In this study, we compared the usefulness and efficacy of LESS versus conventional laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of urachal remnants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 20 consecutive patients who underwent either conventional laparoscopic surgery or LESS from January 2007 to February 2015 at Kansai Medical University Hospital. Ten patients underwent surgery using the standard laparoscopic 3-port technique, and 10 patients underwent LESS. The patients included 12 males and 8 females (mean age, 24.5 years; range, 10-68 years). The patients' characteristics, surgical data, ...
ConclusionsThis novel umbilical approach is useful for patients with symptomatic urachal remnants, with the reduction in port-site scarring resulting in good postoperative cosmesis.
We report a patient who underwent laparoscopic surgery and developed postoperative severe port-site infection following the primary closed approach at the umbilicus due to the presence of an asymptomatic urachal remnant.
CONCLUSION: Total mesenteric peritonectomy can be safely performed with the reported technique irrespective of how widespread PM is along the mesentery as long as few small bowel serous membranes are involved. PMID: 28986751 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractVery few cases of villous adenomas of the bladder or urinary tract have been described. To our knowledge this is the first account of resection of an urachal villous adenoma via robotic laparoscopy, which is a safe and efficacious surgical approach. At this time, there is not enough evidence to suggest that progression of disease to carcinoma is the typical course. Nonetheless, follow-up cystoscopy is recommended after complete removal of the adenoma to monitor for recurrence. This case report reviews the current literature and describes a novel approach to treatment of this exceedingly rare entity.
Rationale: Pseudomyxoma peritonei is an unusual clinical condition, and the appendix and ovaries are reported as the primary sites. Patient concerns: A 44-year-old man who was reported a 3-month history of lower abdominal pain and distention, along with increased abdominal girth, was admitted with a palpable tender mass in the central lower abdomen. Diagnosis: Ultrasonography showed a large well-circumscribed cystic-solid mass with lobulated margin, extending from the anterosuperior dome of the urinary bladder to the anterior abdominal wall. A computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a midline heterogeneous, hypodense, irr...
