Robot-assisted and laparoscopic pyeloplasty.
CONCLUSIONS: In view of published literature, minimally invasive surgery has been postulated as the standard treatment in UPJ stenosis, with superimposable results to open surgery. The high cost of robotic approach limits its use in this type of pathology. PMID: 28530625 [PubMed - in process]
Publication date: Available online 22 September 2017 Source:Case Reports in Women's Health Author(s): Josette C. Dawkins, Gregory K. Lewis, Benjamin Christensen, Morris Wortman Urinary tract injuries are unfortunate complications of pelvic surgery. With the increasing popularity of minimally invasive surgery, a thorough understanding of electrosurgical instrumentation and their thermal spread is important to reduce patient injuries. The index patient was a 50year old woman who underwent a supracervical hysterectomy 5years prior to her presentation with pelvic pain and dysuria. When her symptoms failed to improve despite a...
Robotics medical company TransEnterix filed its response to the Food and Drug Administration’s additional information request on its Senhance Surgical Robotic System 510(k) submission. The Senhance robotic-assisted surgery system is designed to improve minimally invasive surgery, namely in laparoscopy operations, through haptic feedback and eye sensing camera control. Get the full story at our sister site, The Robot Report. The post TransEnterix responds to FDA more info request appeared first on MassDevice.
CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic subtotal cholecystectomy is a safe and effective procedure. It should be considered as an option in complex cases. PMID: 28918963 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsR-duet totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy is a reliable form of reduced-port surgery when used to treat gastric cancer; no special instruments are required.
ConclusionSurgical ovarian ablation is more cost-effective than GnRH administration in the adjuvant treatment of hormone-sensitive breast cancer patients aged 40 –49 years, and the advantage of preventing ovarian cancer through laparoscopic BSO should be considered.
CONCLUSION We report a huge liver cyst treated by hybrid NOTES. This approach is safe, less invasive, and may be the first choice for a huge liver cyst.
(Abstracted from Female Pelvic Med Reconstr Surg 2017;23:95–100) The preferred surgical route for optimal recovery of women with pelvic organ prolapse is minimally invasive surgery. Reconstruction of the apex following a minimally invasive hysterectomy may be performed with a vaginal suspension or a laparoscopic/robotic sacrocolpopexy.
Laparoscopic appendectomy is the predominant method of treatment of acute appendicitis. There is insufficient evidence on the most effective management of the appendix stump. The aim of this study was to investigate the relative effectiveness and provide a treatment ranking of different options for securing the appendix stump.
Conclusion Uterovaginal anastomosis for isolated cervical agenesis is possible by a minimally invasive approach. It can be offered as a first-line management for such cases over hysterectomy and cervical canalization, which have high complication rates. The surgery should only be performed by a specialized team with required expertise in minimally invasive surgery.
CONCLUSION: Minimally invasive surgery for PCL has the potential to reduce the operative trauma to the patients, while at the same time causing comparable or less morbidity. This requires an increasing specialization of complex minimally invasive resections. The clinical use of robotic systems will grow for the latter cases. A prospective registry of the results should be mandatory for quality management. PMID: 28842736 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
