Authors: Albisinni S, Veccia A, Aoun F, Diamand R, Esperto F, Porpiglia F, Roumeguère T, De Nunzio C Abstract INTRODUCTION: Robotic assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) is gaining popularity worldwide, although its enthusiastic implementation is supported mainly by retrospective studies. Aim of this review is to compare the outcomes of RARC and open radical cystectomy (ORC) in the setting of randomized controlled trials (RCTs). EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: Three search engines (PubMed, Embase®, and Web of Science) were queried up to January 1, 2019. Studies selections followed The Preferred Reporting Items fo...
ConclusionRACRS is safe in the treatment of patients with stage I –III colorectal cancer. Oncological outcome did not differ between RACRS and LCRS groups. RACRS had lower conversion and intra-operative complication rates.
ConclusionThe fusion fascia of Fredet is useful to achieve CME and D3-L in right colon cancers with reduced risk of intraoperative complications. This structure is particularly suitable for minimally invasive surgery; therefore, we encourage awareness of the fascia of Fredet by colorectal surgeons.

However, it can have complications. Trocar site hernia (TSH), also known as port site hernia (PSH), is an uncommon complication, but in the case of bowel incarceration or strangulation it can cause significant morbidity. The lateral trocar sites usually do...
Authors: Dave BR, Degulmadi D, Krishnan A, Mayi S Abstract We aim to present the current evidence on various risk factors and surgical treatment modalities for recurrent lumbar disc herniation (rLDH). Using PubMed, a literature search was performed using the Mesh terms "recurrent disc prolapse," "herniated lumbar disc," "risk factors," and "treatment." Articles that were published between January 2010 and May 2017 were selected for further screening. A search conducted through PubMed identified 213 articles that met the initial screening criteria. Detailed analyses showed tha...
Surgical videos allow students to observe and study the elements of a case prior to initial exposure, improving the intraoperative learning experience for both the student and the educator. Minimally invasive surgery is especially suited to this modality of teaching, as students typically are able to observe the procedure clearly, but surgeon-educators do not always have the luxury of teaching in the moment. In response to both of these challenges, we created an interactive video series that allows students to obtain a better understanding of a laparoscopic myomectomy prior to encountering this procedure in the operating room.

Same Day Discharge (SDD) after minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) is an evidence-based safe alternative to inpatient hospital admission for appropriately selected patients. Many institutions have implemented SDD protocols after minimally invasive surgery with excellent outcomes. However, as there is clear disparity in access to minimally invasive surgery in safety net hospitals, we hypothesize a similar disparity in SDD. Our goals were 1) to implement a SDD pathway for patients undergoing MIGS at an urban, safety-net hospital and 2) to track outcomes following pathway implementation.
