Evolution of Laparoscopic Pancreatic Resections for Pancreatic and Periampullary Diseases: Perioperative Outcomes of 605 Patients at a High-Volume Center
Journal of Laparoendoscopic&Advanced Surgical Techniques, Ahead of Print.
CONCLUSIONWe report a case of laparoscopic hepatectomy for liver metastasis of lung LCNEC. It is suggested that surgical resection for solitary distant metastasis of LCNEC may improve prognosis.

Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-1024-5879 Background Symptomatic epiphrenic diverticula are mostly treated with laparoscopic diverticulectomy. Our study aimed to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of submucosal tunneling endoscopic septum division (STESD) for treatment of symptomatic epiphrenic diverticula. Methods Data from patients with epiphrenic diverticula who had undergone STESD were retrospectively reviewed. The parameters analyzed were the modified Eckardt score, total procedure time, length of hospital stay (LOS), number of clips used, adverse events, and patient satisfaction. Results A total of ...
The LACC trial keeps stirring emotions and discussions[2-6]. The LACC trial can be criticised because the surgical proficiency and the adequacy of the laparoscopic radical hysterectomy was not evaluated adequately, because radicality was not assessed properly and since the poorly defined inclusion of type II and type III surgery. However, our impression is that the main reason for this ongoing debate is because the LACC trial was a randomised controlled trial and because many of us do not like or are not ready to accept the results.
This study examined learning on a laparoscopic surgery simulator using a set of procedural or perceptual-motor tasks with some declarative elements. The study used distributed, massed, and 2 hybrid-training schedules that are neither distributed nor massed. To evaluate the training schedules, 23 participants with no previous laparoscopic experience were recruited and randomly assigned to 1 of the 4 training schedules. They performed 3 laparoscopic training tasks in eight 30-minute learning sessions. We compared how task time decreased with each schedule in a between-participants design. We found participants in all groups ...
ConclusionsLaparoscopic left colonic resection for acute diverticulitis is best performed beyond the third month after the last acute episode.
ConclusionBand migration should be suspected in patients with a history of gastric band placement presenting with bowel or biliary obstruction. Its management depends on the location of the band as well as the expertise of the surgical team.
This study examined dispositional emotion-, personality/temperament-, and reward-related variables in relation to post-surgery eating pathology and weight-change among 107 adults who underwent Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). As part of a prospective cohort study, annual post-surgical assessments were conducted to evaluate eating pathology, using the Eating Disorder Examination-Bariatric Surgery Version, and percent weight change from pre-surgery. Dispositional measures were administered at the 6- or 7-year assessment and included the Affect Intensity Measure, Difficulties ...
Conclusion: A combination of laparoscopic reduction and nonsutured PEG gastropexy is a safe and effective alternative treatment for high-risk patients (with significant morbidity and mortality) with symptomatic PHs. Most patients (80%) returned to normal oral intake postprocedure and were discharged home within 3 d. PMID: 31624456 [PubMed - in process]
