KuoAbstractBackgroundRobotics offers improved ergonomics, enhanced visualization, and increased dexterity. Disadvantages include startup, maintenance and instrument costs. Surgeon education notwithstanding, we hypothesized that robotic inguinal hernia repair carries minimal advantages over the open or laparoscopic approach in the inpatient setting.MethodsThe HCUP-SID and AHA datasets were queried for inguinal hernia repair cod...

ConclusionPortal and mesenteric venous thrombosis after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is an unusual complication but it has life threatening consequences if it is not diagnosed early and treated adequately. The patients with porto-mesenteric venous thrombosis (PMVT) usually present themselves with vague abdominal symptoms. As so, the physicians should have high index of suspicion to recommend computed tomography (CT) abdomen to confirm diagnosis and start adequate treatment.

ConclusionsPeritoneal carcinomatosis of unknown primary site may be caused by an occult appendiceal adenocarcinoma. This error in diagnosis may lead to suboptimal treatment. Surgical exploration to visualize a normal appendix should occur prior to making a definitive diagnosis of peritoneal carcinomatosis of unknown primary site.

KalchevAbstractBladder leiomyosarcoma is a rare malignancy, it's nonurothelial tumors and account less than 5% of all bladder malignancies. Because of the very low incidence less than 200 cases reported in the literature, etiology is still little know, also there is lack of consensus regarding definitive treatment for this rare tumors. The most common clinical presentation is gross hematuria, which is reported in 81% of cases, followed by pollakiuria (28%) and dysuria (19%), respectively. Herein, we present the case...

ConclusionDespite the current lack of evidence supporting the use of CRS and HIPEC in the curation of PC of pancreatic origin, this case report highlights the importance of patient selection in determining suitability for CRS. In the presence of positive prognostic factors and favorable tumor histology, CRS and HIPEC is a potential curative procedure that could be offered to highly selected patients presenting with PC from a primary pancreatic malignancy.

Endometriosis is a common cause of chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea and infertility. Although 6 –10% of women of child bearing age are affected by the disease, and even more in the group of patients with fertility problems, diagnosis is often delayed and treatment can be challenging. Depending on the complaints, extent of disease and the goals of treatment (fertility treatment, pain reducti on, …), both medical and surgical options are available for the management of this pathology and often a  multidisciplinary approach will be necessary. Although diagnostic laparoscopy with histologic confirmation...

Healthcare systems are often compared with the aviation industry. Progress in both is highly desired but must always be achieved with safety in mind. Everyone wants to get from point A to point B faster and more comfortably, but how much risk of uncertainty is one ready to accept to achieve that extra speed? Both industries also share the aspect of competition for customers. In the field of localized prostate cancer, patients have an ever-increasing choice of options: radical surgery (open vs laparoscopic vs robot-assisted), external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) (with photons or protons), brachytherapy (low-dose rate or h...

Conclusions Uterus-preserving LLSM (abdominocervicopexy) was found to be effective for the correction of apical and anterior prolapse with high levels of patient satisfaction. Significant improvements in urge symptoms and frequency of nocturia were observed. Pelvic floor ultrasound outcomes may be useful when comparing this procedure with other surgical techniques.
