In conclusion, we described the US semeiotics of various lung disorders assessed during VATS by reporting the preliminary data of the first s tudy which applies the methodology systematically to all patients undergoing the surgery procedure. Final results from the study will further elucidate how the technique could be of use during the VATS procedure.

This report aims to review recent evidence regarding the utilization of transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block in minimally invasive urologic surgery.Recent FindingsTAP block has been shown to improve early and late pain at rest, and to reduce opioid consumption after minimally invasive surgery. These benefits have indirectly reduced the incidence of postoperative delirium, pneumonia, urinary retention, and falls. Compared to epidural analgesia, TAP block provides similar pain control, has a lower incidence of hypotension, and is associated with a shorter length of stay.SummaryFew studies focus specifically on the outcome...

Conclusion: Although the bedside assistant's experience in RARP does not ap pear to influence the robotic surgeon's oncological outcomes during the learning curve, it may reduce the potential complications by shortening the total operation time.

Non-opioid medications as a part of multimodal analgesia have been increasingly suggested in the management of acute post-surgical pain. Multimodal protocols have been gaining attention worldwide and have shown to reduce the length of postoperative hospital stay without adversely affecting morbidity. By combining preoperative medications in a multimodal fashion  we believe that we can maintain postoperative physiological function and accelerate recovery in patients undergoing routine surgeries such as the laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The present study was planned to compare the opioid consumptions between two gr...

CONCLUSION: The case volume only appeared to have a direct but limited influence on incision to suture times in laparoscopic and arthroscopic procedures. Overall, the hospital performance volume appeared to be of subordinate importance in terms of OR-economics. PMID: 30895350 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study examined patient-related outcome measures (PROMs) after repair of ventral primary or incisional hernias using Symbotex ™ composite mesh (SCM), a novel three-dimensional collagen-coated monofilament polyester textile.MethodsPre-operative, peri-operative, and post-operative data were obtained from the French “Club Hernie” registry with 12- and 24-month follow-up.ResultsOne-hundred consecutive patients (mean age 62.0  ± 13.7; 51% female) underwent repair of 105 hernias: primary (39/105, 37.1%, defect area 5.2 ± 5.6 cm2) and incisional (66/105, 62.9%, 31.9 ...

We present a case report involving two sequential, surgically uneventful, laparoscopic cholecystectomies using the same anesthesia machine (Drager Apollo ©) for which the level of inspired carbon dioxide was noted to be elevated following various diagnostic interventions including replacing the sodalime, increasing fresh gas flows, and a full inspection of equipment for malfunction. Eventually it was discovered that a rubber ring seal connecting the Dragersorb CLIC system© to the sodalime canister was inadvertently removed during the initial canister exchange resulting in an apparent bypassing of the absorbent an...

pal S Abstract Background: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of ultrasound-guided (USG) subcostal transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block and quadratus lumborum (QL) block as preventive analgesia methods after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Methods: A total of 120 patients, 18-75 years of age, were separated into 2 groups preoperatively. Patients in group TAP (n = 60) received 0.3 ml/kg bupivacaine with USG bilateral subcostal TAP block; patients in group QL (n = 60) received 0.3 ml/kg bupivacaine with USG bilateral QL block. Patients were a...
