Conclusions: Choosing the type of approach is related to surgeon experience, although 79-94% of the surgeons prefer the transabdominal lateral approach. We believe that with an experienced surgical team, there is no difficulty in performing adrenalectomy by transabdominal approach, with no significantly prolonged operating time, even though the patient has previously had abdominal surgery.

Conclusion: This study suggested that oversewing the staple line during LSG has a significant clinical value: it decreased the incidence of postoperative bleeding, postoperative leakage; moreover, it also significantly prolonged the operative time and but did not change hospital stay. More high-quality and large sample RCTs are expected to get more accurate results. PMID: 31805796 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 6 December 2019Source: Orthopaedics &Traumatology: Surgery &ResearchAuthor(s): Jérôme Allain, Thierry DufourAbstractAn anterior approach to the lumbar spine is increasingly used in performing fusion. Depending on the level to be treated, several approaches have been developed to deal with the anatomic obstacles encountered: pure anterior, oblique anterior or lateral, and trans- or pre-psoas. Conventional techniques incur risk of muscle lesion and severe bleeding, and have been replaced by minimally invasive approaches, often with video assistance after rapid closure o...

Publication date: Available online 7 December 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Gordon Narayansingh, Jennifer HohAbstractAbdominal pain following in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the presence of enlarged ovaries commonly leads to the diagnosis of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Progressively worsening pain with a rise in inflammatory markers with normal hematological indices implies a diagnosis of ovarian torsion of the hyperstimulated ovary. Early recourse to laparoscopic assessment and derotation of the affected ovary even after 72 h following the onset of symptoms can allow a return to viab...

Authors: Bratu OG, Diaconu CC, Mischianu DLD, Constantin T, Stanescu AMA, Bungau SG, Ionita-Radu F, Marcu RD Abstract Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer in men in Europe. The primary treatment of this type of cancer is radical prostatectomy, which has shown good oncological results. Radical prostatectomy (open, laparoscopic or robotic) has high success and low morbidity rates in patients with localized prostate cancer. The life expectancy is>10 years after radical prostatectomy. Studies have shown that ~20%-30% of the patients who have undergone radical prostatectomy can develop biochemical...

Authors: Yang H, Wang Y, Gao J, Wang P, Jiang X, Tian D, Hu H Abstract A 67-year-old male patient had a history of repeated urinary tract infections for numerous years. X-ray examination revealed a large calcific density in the pelvic cavity, with a diameter of 10.4 cm and a CT value of ~792.9 HU. On MRI of the pelvis, the lesion displayed with extremely low signals. The inside of the stone had a concentric ring shape with a slightly higher signal and the patient was diagnosed with a large left seminal vesicle calculus. Laparoscopic surgery was selected to treat the stone. The patient recovered rapidly and the symp...
