Step-by-step demonstration of laparoscopic laterally extended endopelvic resection for a recurrent endometrial cancerous tumor at a sciatic foramen, with a detailed explanation of the pelvic sidewall anatomy.

CONCLUSIONS: Total laparoscopic LEER and reconstructive surgery for a recurrent endometrial carcinoma located at the right sciatic foramen is technically feasible in experienced hands. PMID: 31785862 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionCongenital piriform sinus fistula is an important cause of deep neck abscess in children. The presence of purulent gas-liquid equilibrium or air shadow in cervical-enhanced computed tomography or ultrasound suggests a high possibility of the presence of an internal fistula, and endoscopic low temperature ablation can be done at the same time as the diagnostic endoscopy.ResumoIntroduçãoA fístula congênita do seio piriforme é uma doença relativamente rara na prática clínica; a maioria se manifesta na infância; entretanto, os médicos geralmente t&ec...

Publication date: March–April 2020Source: Reports of Practical Oncology &Radiotherapy, Volume 25, Issue 2Author(s): Ramaiah Vinay Kumar, Suman BhaskerAbstractObesity has become epidemic both in developed and developing countries. Socio-economic (SE) development has resulted in increased prevalence of obesity across all social groups in developing countries that is contrary to the effects of rising SE status on prevalence of obesity in the developed world. Obesity is not only associated with metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, diabetes but is also a risk factor for cancer and is responsible for increased c...

Rationale: Primary carcinosarcoma of the upper urinary tract is rare. Ureteral duplication is one of the most common urinary tract malformations. Additionally, the association between ureteral duplication and malignancy is unknown. To the best of our knowledge, no cases of malignant tumors diagnosed as carcinosarcoma with ureteral duplication have been reported. We herein report the case of a patient with carcinosarcoma of the ureteropelvic junction associated with incomplete ureteral duplication. Patient concerns: A 60-year-old Japanese woman presented with painless gross hematuria. She had a history of total hystere...

ConclusionsTraditionally, patients with vesicovaginal fistula after pelvic radiation therapy and multiple abdominal surgeries are managed by laparotomy. This video demonstrates a feasible robotic approach to vesicovaginal fistula repair, with superior imaging affording a three-dimensional vision and stabilization of instruments allowing wrist-like movements.

A 56 year-old female presented to an outside institution for several days of abnormal uterine bleeding. At that time, she underwent a dilation and curettage and was discharged. Five days post-operatively, she presented to the emergency room with abdominal cramping, vaginal bleeding, hematuria, and left flank pain. Cross-sectional imaging was obtained which revealed left moderate hydronephrosis and a soft tissue mid-ureteral mass (figure 1&2). The endometrial biopsy performed by gynecology resulted in only endometrial hyperplasia.

Laparoscopic Para-aortic lymph node dissection was performed for 10 patients with FIGO stage 1-2A endometrial carcinoma since Dec 2016 and analysed prospectively. After completing type B2 radical hysterectomy for Carcinoma Endometrium, peritoneal cut on right side extended proximally to expose bifurcation of aorta and IVC. Right ureter lateralised and cut edge of peritoneum is hung in a tent shape using 2.0 nylon. Fibro-fatty tissue anterior to aorta and IVC is dissected using suction cannula, harmonicTM/ ligasureTM shears upto crossing of left renal vein seen as cranial limit.

Lynch syndrome (hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by a significant risk of colorectal and endometrial cancers. A variety of other epithelial cancers may be associated with this syndrome, including ovarian, gastric, small bowel, hepatobiliary, renal, ureteral, skin, breast, prostate, and pancreatic cancers. Brain tumors are infrequent, but have been reported in series [1]. Individuals who have biallelic Lynch syndrome mutations in MLH1, MSH-2, MSH-6, or PMS-2 have a childhood-onset disorder now referred to as constitutional mismatch repair deficiency syndrome, in whic...

Abstract A "cancer predisposing syndrome" later labeled as Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) or Lynch syndrome, was firstly described by Warthin, about one century ago. An increased predisposition to the development of multiple familial tumors is described as characteristic of this syndrome where visceral and cutaneous malignancies may appear at an early age namely endometrial, gastric, small bowel, ureteral and renal pelvis, ovarian, hepatobiliary tract, pancreatic, brain (Turcot Syndrome) and sebaceous glands (Muir-Torre Syndrome). The latter, a variant of Lynch Syndrome, is characteri...
