ConclusionPatients with initial cCR and local regrowth may be safely managed by deferred surgery. Short-term outcomes suggest equivalent results to patients with incomplete clinical response and immediate radical surgery. Delayed MIS appears to have no negative impact on oncological outcomes.

ConclusionLESS hysterectomy is a reliable and safe option in gynecologic surgery. Compared to conventional laparoscopic hysterectomy, LESS surgery demonstrated comparable surgical properties in regard to blood loss, duration of surgery, and intra-/postoperative complications. Notably, patients undergoing LESS hysterectomy experienced some less pain postoperatively.

Publication date: Available online 14 August 2019Source: The Annals of Thoracic SurgeryAuthor(s): Chang Hyun KangAbstractThe anterolateral approach in robotic lung cancer surgery was developed for the purpose of more efficient port placement by removing the posterior port, decreasing the total number of ports, securing enough distance between the robotic arms. Using this approach, four ports are made in the anterolateral area of the patient and the robot can be docked from an anterolateral direction. By using this port placement, the assistant surgeon’s role can be minimized and solo surgery is possible using the rob...

Abstract Untethered microgrippers that can navigate in hard-to-reach and unpredictable environments are significantly important for biomedical applications such as targeted drug delivery, micromanipulation, minimally invasive surgery and in vivo biopsy. Compared with the traditional tethered microgrippers, the wireless microgrippers, due to the exceptional characteristics such as miniaturized size, untethered actuation, dexterous and autonomous motion, are projected to be promising microtools in various future applications. In this review, we categorize the untethered microgrippers into five major classes, i.e. mi...

Jiao, Derek Manas, Mohammed Abu Hilal, Steven A. WhiteAbstractBackgroundRobotic pancreaticoduodenectomy (RPD) offers theoretical advantages to conventional laparoscopic surgery including improved instrument dexterity, 3D visualization and better ergonomics. This review aimed to determine if these theoretical advantages translate into improved patient outcomes comparing patients having either robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy or laparoscopic (LPD) equivalent.Me...

Unilateral or bilateral approach for nephrectomy in horseshoe kidney by minimally invasive surgery has been described. A total binephrectomy by a unilateral retroperitoneoscopic approach was performed for congenital nephrotic syndrome.A unilateral retroperitoneoscopic approach was planned in a 3-year-old boy (13 kg) with a congenital nephrotic syndrome resistant to steroids with massive protein loss.Operative time was 160 minutes. Postoperative course was uneventful with continued hemodialysis until renal transplant 18 months later.
