Conclusion: Although left-sided gallbladder is a very rare disease, it is possible to diagnose it preoperatively and perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy safely by adjusting port position. The common important features of left-sided gallbladder include distribution of the left portal vein crossing over to the right side of the liver and increased size of the left portal vein. These variations may have important clinical implications in the management of hepatic resection including donor hepatectomy. PMID: 31824885 [PubMed]

Authors: Lin D, Yu Z, Chen X, Chen W, Zou Y, Hu J Abstract INTRODUCTION: the evidence with regard to the benefit of laparoscopic surgery for pancreatoduodenectomy is conflicting. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the short-term outcomes in patients undergoing laparoscopic or open pancreatoduodenectomy via randomized controlled trial studies. METHODS: PubMed, Embase and Cochrane Library databases were searched for studies addressing laparoscopic versus open pancreatoduodenectomy up to February 2019. Only randomized controlled trial studies were included. RESULTS: three randomized controlled trial ...

This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of transvaginal ultrasound- and laparoscopy-guided PMWA for the treatment of adenomyosis.Materials and methods: From May 2015 to October 2017, a total of 70 patients with symptomatic adenomyosis who underwent transvaginal ultrasound- and laparoscopy-guided PMWA were included in this study. The technical efficacy and complications of PMWA were assessed. Meanwhile, the uterine volume, lesion volume, symptom severity score (SSS) and visual analog scale (VAS) score before PMWA and at 1, 6 and 12 months after PMWA were recorded.Results: PMWA was successful...

CONCLUSION: The approach used to reach the superior mesenteric vessels for laparoscopic right hemicolectomy with D3 lymph node dissection does not affect the short-term outcome of the operation. The present three-plane model gives surgeons additional insight to perform this operation. PMID: 31821523 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
