AbstractOmental flap was introduced for breast reconstruction after mastectomy either alone or as an adjunct to prosthetic reconstruction. Laparoscopically harvested omental flap was used successfully for this issue. Most of reports had described its use after partial mastectomy, skin or nipple areola sparing mastectomies. In this case, we used the thoracodorsal artery perforator (Tdap) flap as a cover for the omental flap in a patient who underwent modified radical mastectomy. Modified radical mastectomy was done in the usual fashion. The descending branch of the thoracodorsal vessel was traced till its main perforator in...

We report a unique case of a 60-year-old woman developing endometrial cancer in a uterine deposit 18 years after she had undergone laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy with morcellation for benign pathology. She had used unopposed estrogen as menopausal hormone therapy. She presented with a pelvic mass that was causing pressure symptoms. On imaging, the mass had an enhancing vascular nodular component and appeared to abut normal ovaries and the residual cervix. She proceeded to laparotomy, where a 12 cm pelvic mass was found morbidly adherent to the bladder anteriorly and to the cervical stump. The pelvic mass was excise...

AbstractSingle-site hysterectomy (SSH) laparoscopic or robotic presented distinct advantages with regards to postoperative cosmetic outcome, wound-related complications and morbidity. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility of robotic and laparoscopic SSH in patients with benign or early-stage malignant gynecological conditions and to compare the two approaches. A systematic search of four electronic databases for articles published up to September 2019 was performed. Studies reporting outcomes for women who underwent robotic or laparoscopic SSH were considered eligible. A total of 6 studies with 412 patients were included. A...

We report a case of a 15-year-old girl who presented acute severe pain, a tenderness and a palpable mass in the left upper abdominal quadrant in a context of known ovarian cyst. An ultrasound described an ovarian cyst with uncertain vascularization. An urgent laparoscopy showed us a normal left ovary and revealed a very unusual combination of isolated fallopian tube torsion, with a big fallopian cyst and an elongated tube folded over the mesosigmoid. We performed a cystectomy without salpingectomy. This case reminds that paraadnexal and adnexal cysts can be found outside the pelvic area especially in children.

Authors: Borgna V, Vidal I, Castillo OA Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare peri-operative and mid-term oncological outcomes between Open radical cystectomy (ORC) and Laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC). METHODS: A retrospective cohort was assembled, in which 182 patients had been subjected consecutively to Radical Cystectomy (RC) for treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) between 2000 and 2010 in a single center. Two cohorts were included: ORC (n=83) and LRC (n=99). All the RCs were performed by the same surgeon. Perioperatory complications were registered according to Clavien-Dindo classification. We...
