Robotic colostomy take-down in a patient with extensive ventral hernias and adhesive disease
ConclusionRobotic-assisted colostomy take-down and anastomosis of descending colon to rectum were successfully performed. While there is a paucity of literature examining this technique within gynecologic surgery, general surgery literature has supported laparoscopic Hartmann's reversal and have demonstrated improved rates of postoperative complications and incisional hernia, while lowering the length of hospitalization (1). Minimally invasive technique is a feasible alternative to laparotomy for gynecologic oncology patients with colostomy, as long as they are recurrence-free.

CONCLUSIONS LDPPHRt is a time-saving procedure with short-term outcomes comparable to those of LPD for the management of benign or low-grade malignancies of the pancreatic head. PMID: 32935663 [PubMed - in process]

Background: High tibial osteotomy (HTO) aims to realign the knee joint and is a useful surgical option for medial tibiofemoral osteoarthritis in younger, more active patients. The procedure is technically challenging as accurate correction in multiple planes is essential for optimal effectiveness. This cadaveric study evaluated the accuracy of a novel system (TOKA ®) for open wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO), which uses CT scan data to create 3D printed patient specific cutting jigs and titanium fixation plate.
