Assessing the Adequacy of Absorbable Braided Suture for Laparoscopic High Ligation in Rabbits

We present a case of a baby born at 29 weeks gestation, who after stooling normally for several weeks, developed a large bowel obstruction on day of life (DOL) 34. The patient underwent surgical resection of an abnormal span of sigmoid colon and creation of a colostomy. The patient did well post-operatively, had early ostomy function on post operative day (POD) 2, and was discharged home. He returned for a laparoscopic-assisted completion proctectomy and Soave endorectal pull-through. He was discharged home on POD4. He continues to do well.
ConclusionMesenteric cysts represent a rare cause of intra-abdominal mass. Owing to low prevalence, literature is limited as is guidance on management. Careful pre-operative planning is essential so as to avoid operative complications. Imaging such as USS is of great importance; however Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be of more benefit, owing to the complex anatomical relations within which mesenteric cysts can present. Surgical excision is widely reported as the surgical treatment of choice for symptomatic cysts
ConclusionA neuroendocrine neoplasm of the gallbladder may closely resemble a benign paraganglion. If a NET is suspected, the clinician should be aware of the histopathologic mimicry of a paraganglion prior to initiating additional treatments.
ConclusionAlthough Meckel’s diverticulitis is a rare entity, it can appear as an acute abdomen. An early diagnosis and treatment to prevent subsequent complications is essential to ensure an optimal recovery.

CONCLUSION: SIL is a laparoscopic technique that can safely be offered to patients presenting abdominal diseases. The main advantages include enhanced cosmetic results and reduced abdominal trauma. The main disadvantages are patient selection, a longer operative time for some procedures, and a need to expose the operative field for some other procedures. PMID: 31710087 [PubMed - in process]
(Vanderbilt University Medical Center) Even a minor surgery such as a laparoscopic gallbladder removal can prove to be a high-risk and even fatal procedure for frail patients, according to new research published in JAMA Surgery.
