Plasmacytoma as a cause of small bowel obstruction in a virgin abdomen in a patient with multiple myeloma: a case report

ConclusionsMultiple myeloma has myriad presentations. Gastrointestinal involvement, although rare, can manifest as small bowel obstruction for which early recognition and appropriate surgical management are key to improving outcome. Intussusception is the most common mechanism of obstruction from extramedullary plasmacytoma causing small bowel obstruction and this has been seen in five of six case reports, including this case. It is important to recognize and consider the risks of immunosuppression, venous thromboembolism, and malnutrition in the surgical management of gastrointestinal complications of multiple myeloma.

There has been a growing interest among both patients and surgeons in preserving the uterus during the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. In this video we are demonstrating a novel surgical approach towards the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. This surgical procedure simplifies the laparoscopic sacrohysteropexy procedure by significantly reducing endoscopic suturing and knot tying, without the need for a combined laparoscopic and vaginal surgical approach.

To demonstrate techniques to regulate and improve the safety and completeness of laparoscopic and robotic radical hysterectomy/radical trachelectomy (L-RH/RT+R-RH/RT=MI-RH/RT) for early invasive cervical cancer. We will present our techniques and skills as well as data on our long-term outcomes for MI-RH/RT patients.

Uterine leiomyosarcoma (uLMS) is aggressive mesenchymal neoplasm and is associated with a high risk of recurrence and poor prognosis. The 5year overall survival rate is about 60% even in FIGO stage I disease. There is no firm evidence of chemotherapy, so surgical resection should be considered to control the disease in case of localized recurrence. We will report a case underwent total laparoscopic complete resection for recurrent mass involved sigmoid colon and right ureter.
