Authors: Liang H, Guo H, Zhang C, Zhu F, Wu Y, Zhang K, Li H, Han J Abstract Objectives: To assess the feasibility and outcome of primary laparoscopic cytoreductive surgery on advanced epithelial ovarian cancer in comparison with conventional open surgery. Materials and Methods: Patients undergoing primary laparoscopic cytoreductive surgery (LCS) from March 2007 to December 2016 were matched to controls treated with laparotomic cytoreduction during the same period. Procedural data and outcomes were analyzed. Results: The LCS group (n = 64) and laparotomic group (n = 68) had similar age, BMI, stages, histolo...

A full-thickness biopsy of the bowel wall is required to evaluate the enteric nervous system. A patient with aggravating gastrointestinal symptoms underwent a laparoscopic full-thickness biopsy of the ileum and, 1 year later, an endoscopic full-thickness biopsy of the sigmoid colon. Both samples showed enteric neuropathy characterized by vacuolated and enlarged neurons. The length of the myenteric plexus was greater in the endoscopic (23 mm) compared to the laparoscopic (11 mm) biopsy, with fewer tissue artefacts in the laparoscopic approach. Clinical deterioration was paralleled by enteric neuropathy with an increase in t...

Appendectomy is a well-established surgical procedure in pediatric surgery used in the management of acute appendicitis. With the continuous advancement in the field of minimal invasive surgery, the recent focus is on single incision laparoscopic (SIL) surgery. SILA also goes further in order to decrease pain, improve recovery and enhance patient satisfaction. However, this approach is still not a well-established technique and not widely practiced, especially in pediatric surgery.

Conclusions In experienced hands, rendezvous was a safe procedure, with a long-term success rate of 55 %. When endoscopic or transhepatic interventions fail to restore bile duct continuity in patients with BDI, rendezvous should be considered, either as definitive treatment or as a bridge to elective surgery.

We read with great interest the article ”Single-incision laparoscopy versus standard laparoscopy for colorectal surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis” by Hoyela et al. In an era with increased focus on minimal invasive procedures, this paper deals with an important subject on potential benefits of single-incision laparoscopic surgery.
