AbstractPurposeTo present our experience of laparoscopic and robotic ureteroplasty using onlay flap or graft for the management of long proximal or middle ureteral strictures and summarize our treatment strategies for these challenging scenarios.MethodsFrom March 2018 to January 2020, 53 patients with long proximal/middle ureteral strictures (2 –6 cm) who underwent laparoscopic or robotic onlay flap/graft ureteroplasty were retrospectively enrolled. Different reconstruction techniques were chosen based on our management strategy: pelvic flap (PF) was the first choice for proximal stricture if pelvic tissue was s...

Laparoscopic uterine-sparing surgery is being performed increasingly in women with severe symptoms or subfertility secondary to adenomyosis. Although the purpose of this surgery is to increase fertility and improve quality of life, this surgery has not become the standard treatment for adenomyosis as it is difficult to excise the affected adenomyotic tissue completely, and critical complications (e.g. placenta increta and uterine rupture) may develop [1,2]. The exact mechanism resulting in the effectiveness of this surgery remains unclear, and some of the advantages of removing an affected area are theoretical.

Conclusion: MRCP is valuable for identification of bile duct variation and CBD stones. Preoperative MRCP can be considered, particularly in patients with elevated γ-GT, for proper preoperative management and avoidance of complications. PMID: 33029481 [PubMed]

Conclusion: The present study showed that MIS is associated with quicker recovery without increasing complications. Therefore, MIS may be a safe alternative to open surgery for MD. An old age and preoperative ileus were associated with a risk of postoperative complications. PMID: 33029480 [PubMed]
