Reoperation After Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery. Does the Laparoscopic Approach Have Any Advantages?
Conclusions A laparoscopic approach in re-intervention for complications after laparoscopic colorectal surgery associates a faster recovery reflected in a shorter hospital stay, earlier start of oral tolerance and a lower abdominal wall complication rate in patients with low severity index.
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.
ConclusionLPL is related to a higher reoperation rate, more frequent postoperative ongoing sepsis, and higher recurrence rates. Therefore, laparoscopic lavage for perforated diverticulitis carries a high risk of failure in daily practice.
ConclusionManagement strategies of colon perforations depend upon the etiology, size, severity, location, available expertise, and general health status. Usually, peritonitis, sepsis, or hemodynamic compromise requires immediate surgical management. Endoscopic techniques are under continuous evolution. Newer developments have offered high success rate with least amount of post-procedure complications. However, there is a need for further studies to compare the newer endoscopic techniques in terms of success rate, cost, complications, and the affected part of colon.
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.
ConclusionSclerosing peritonitis is a rare benign diagnosis which can manifest as complete bowel obstruction and a high index of suspicion is required to diagnose it. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen is a useful radiological tool to aid in preoperative diagnosis. Diagnostic laparoscopy is usually confirmatory.Peritoneal sac excision and adhesiolysis is the treatment and a short course of steroids in relapsing symptoms.
To demonstrate a novel technique in removing large adnexal masses in a contained fashion. To reduce the risk of ovarian cyst spillage and or chemical peritonitis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Compared with traditional open surgery, laparoscopic surgery is preferred due to the advantages of less trauma, less pain, and faster recovery. Nevertheless, many patients still suffer from postoperative pain resulting from the surgical incision and associated tissue injury. Many researchers have reported methods to improve postoperative pain control, but there is not a simple and effective method that can be clinically adopted in a widespread manner. We designed this study to prove the hypothesis that application of ropivacaine in the port site and operative site in patients is an effective a...
This report describes the operative technique including omentectomy, placement of a percutaneous stitch between the catheter cuffs, and fibrin glue injection around the catheter. The patient had no catheter-related infections. Laparoscopic-assisted PD catheter placement with chest wall exit site is a safe alternative in patients with any type of abdominal stoma.

This study aimed to investigate the factors affecting the postoperative mortality rate in patients undergoing surgery for perforated diverticulitis. Further, we compared the recovery courses of patients between open and laparoscopic surgeries. Methods: We analyzed the medical records of adult patients with peritonitis caused by perforated diverticulitis from six hospitals of Hallym University Medical Center from January 2006 to December 2016. Results: A total of 166 patients were identified. In the univariate analysis, the statistically significant factors associated with postoperative mortality were age ≥ 60 ye...
CONCLUSIONS: LALA, as a bridge treatment, before EE and resection, in patients presenting a perforated diverticulitis with purulent peritonitis, associated with an uncomplicated AAA, may be an effective treatment option.
