The value of force and torque measurements in transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME)

ConclusionsForces and torque measured at the entrance port, and the tissue interaction force signatures provide detailed insight into instrument handling, instrument loading, and tissue handling during purse-string suturing in a TaTME training setup. This newly developed training setup for single-port laparoscopy that enables objective feedback has the potential to enhance surgical training in TaTME.

Authors: Martínez-Acitores D, Hernández Ainsa M, Cortés García L, Bengochea Martínez ML, Palacios Fanlo MJ Abstract Ectopic hepatocellular carcinoma is a rare entity.

In this clinical case report, we review the literature in order to decipher the case of a 68-year-old female with an ectopic hepatocellular carcinoma that arose from the peritoneum.

Authors: Beita AKV, Whayne TF Abstract This review is directed at increasing awareness of two diverse rare upper gastrointestinal problems that occur at opposite ends of the age spectrum and are difficult to diagnose and treat. The superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) likely involves a young patient, especially female, and is especially associated with rapid weight loss, resulting in relative strangulation of the duodenum by a narrowing of the angle between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the aorta. On the other hand, atherosclerosis of the SMA is associated most likely with postprandial upper intest...
