AbstractSurgical techniques have evolved over the past few decades, and minimally invasive surgery has been rapidly adapted to become a preferred operative approach for treating colorectal diseases. However, many of the procedures remain a technical challenge for surgeons to perform laparoscopically, which has prompted the development of robotic platforms. Robotic surgery has been introduced as the latest advance in minimally invasive surgery. The present article provides an overview of robotic rectal surgery and describes many advances that have been made in the field over the past two decades. More specifically, the intr...

Conclusions: Minimally invasive surgery seems to be more effective than conservative treatment in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage in reducing both morbidity and mortality. Repeating a clinical trial with similar devices, design, and outcomes is unlikely to change the current evidence.

AbstractIntroductionTo determine the incidence and classification of parastomal hernia (PH) following ileal conduit urinary diversion and to identify risk factors for PH development.MethodsWe performed a retrospective review of our cystectomy database which includes benign and malignant cases from 2011 –2016. Patients with an abdominal CT at 24 ± 2 months post-operation were included. PH were classified according to the European Hernia Society (EHS) system. Regression analyses were performed on variables associated with parastomal hernia.ResultsA total of 96 patients were included in the stu...

AbstractBackgroundIn minimally invasive surgery, complete mesocolic excision (CME) for transverse colon cancer is challenging; thus, non-CME resections are commonly preferred when laparoscopy is used. Robotic technology has been developed to reduce the limitations of laparoscopy. The aim of our study was to evaluate whether robotic CME for transverse colon cancer can be performed with short-term outcomes similar to those of laparoscopic conventional colectomy (CC).MethodsA retrospective review of 118 consecutive patients having robotic CME or laparoscopic CC for transverse colon cancer in two specialized centers between Ma...

We reported favorable results in terms of foot appearance, function and radiology. We believe that a less invasive procedure like naviculectomy/midtarsal resection is an encouraging technique to investigate in children with intractable congenital vertical talus.

Optimal postoperative pain therapy for patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery remains controversial. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the efficacy and safety of the novel laparoscopic-guided transversus abdominis plane block (L-TAP) to other analgesic alternatives in adults undergoing minimally invasive surgery.

Conclusions Robotic Single-Port kidney transplantation using the SP® surgical platf orm is feasible in a pre-clinical model. The platform could be particularly interesting for multi-quadrant surgery such as auto-transplantation, potentially reducing the time for redocking. Further clinical studies in humans and comparison with standard surgical techniques are warranted.
