Short-term Outcomes of Non-robotic Single-incision Laparoscopic Sacrocolpopexy: A Surgical Technique

This study will consist of a retrospective analysis of 49 consecutive cases.SettingThis study is set at the Third Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University from October 2016 to November 2017.PatientsThe population for this study will consist of women with stage II-IV POP, who met eligibility criteria for laparoscopic surgery.InterventionsS-LSC included the use of V-locTM barbed suture and retroperitoneal tunneling, in addition to standard single-incision laparoscopic surgery techniques. All 49 cases were successfully completed. All cases included concomitant procedures; 42 (85.7%) had removal of uterus and adnexa. The main measured outcomes include patient characteristics, perioperative outcomes, and change in pelvic floor support (POP-Q) and quality of life (PFIQ-7).Measurements and Main ResultsAll patients were parous and 42.9% had a history of previous abdominal surgery. Mean operative duration from skin to skin was 201.20±46.53 minutes. Mean estimated blood loss was 27.0 ± 16.6 mL. Mean pre- and post-operative POP-Q scores were 2.2 ± 1.1 cm versus -2.6 ± 0.5 cm for the Aa point and 3.2 ± 2.8 cm versus -4.6 ± 0.8 cm for the C point (p

We report on a 31-year-old male patient with non-invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma, low grade of the renal pelvis disguised as xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. The only symptom of the patient was lower back pain. The initial renal-enhanced computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography showed that the right kidney had a benign lesion and this inflammatory lesion might be xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. A percutaneous renal biopsy was performed and histopathologic examination revealed a xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. Initially, we diagnosed it as xanthogranulomatous p...

Authors: Rahimzadeh P, Mahmoudi K, Khodaverdi M, Faiz SHR Abstract Introduction: Laparoscopic gynecologic surgery is one of the most well-known procedures. Pneumoperitoneum with carbon dioxide insufflation can cause unfavorable hemodynamic effects due to catecholamine and vasopressin release. Aim: To examine the effects of stellate ganglion block on hemodynamic response and postoperative pain. Material and methods: In a prospective double blinded randomized parallel study we included 40 patients with ASA physical status I and II, aged between 18 and 50 years with a gynecologic problem candidate for laparosc...

ConclusionsOur study of published trials indicates that using low, as opposed to standard, IAP during laparoscopic cholecystectomy may reduce patients ’ post-operative pain, including shoulder pain, and length of hospital stay. Heterogeneity in the pooled estimates and high risk of bias of the included trials suggest the need for high-quality, adequately powered RCTs to confirm these findings.

ConclusionBased on our results, we believe that laparoscopic surgery requires more prolonged periods of static neck posture when compared with open surgery. This difference may assist in understanding the contributing factors for musculoskeletal (in particular cervical) pain encountered in minimally invasive surgeons. Further investigation of static posture in the operating surgeon is warranted.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate and compare peri-operative outcomes through 30  days, including pain and quality of life (QOL) through 3 months across three cohorts of inguinal hernia repair (IHR) patients (robotic-assisted, laparoscopic, and open IHR).MethodsThe Prospective Hernia Study is an ongoing, multicenter, comparative, open-label analysis of clinical and patient-reported outcomes from robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) versus open and RAS versus laparoscopic IHR procedures. Patient responses to the Carolinas Comfort Scale (CCS) questionnaire provided QOL outcomes.Results504 enrolled patients underwent unilateral ...

ConclusionCompared to MPLS, RPLS provides several advantages for the treatment of URC among elderly individuals, including a shorter length of surgical incision, reduced postoperative pain, shorter time to first flatus after surgery, earlier mobilization, and better cosmetic outcomes. These advantages are achieved with no difference in the length of surgery, nor in the 3 ‐year disease‐free and overall survival rate, compared to MPLS.

Optimal postoperative pain therapy for patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery remains controversial. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the efficacy and safety of the novel laparoscopic-guided transversus abdominis plane block (L-TAP) to other analgesic alternatives in adults undergoing minimally invasive surgery.
