Stereotactic Navigation for Rectal Surgery: Comparison of 3-Dimensional C-Arm−Based Registration to Paired-Point Registration

This study was based on a prospective case series. SETTING: The study was conducted in a single university hospital. PATIENTS: Four patients who underwent laparoscopic rectal surgery were included. INTERVENTIONS: Paired-point registration was performed for 2 cases, whereas 3-dimensional C-arm−based registration was performed for the other 2 cases. In addition, 3-dimensional C-arm−based registration was performed twice during the operation. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Navigation accuracy was evaluated by measuring target registration error at 8 anatomical landmarks. RESULTS: Target registration error of the 3-dimensional C-arm−based registration group was significantly smaller than that of the paired-point registration group (median, 19.5 mm vs 54.1 mm; p

Authors: Luzzi S, Lucifero AG, Pacilli M, Tartaglia N, Ambrosi A Abstract BACKGROUND: The causative role played by intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) in the syringogenesis of the Chiari 1 malformation syringomyelia has been still not adequately studied. The aim of this study is to validate the transmedullary theory about the hindbrain-related syrinx, also discussing the implications for safety of these patients related to the use of high-pressure CO2 pneumoperitoneum during laparoscopic and robotic surgery. METHODS: Fourteen patients with a hindbrain-related syrinx were candidate for a posterior fossa decompression...

Authors: Della Corte A, Ratti F, Monfardini L, Marra P, Gusmini S, Salvioni M, Venturini M, Cipriani F, Aldrighetti L, Cobelli F Abstract Background: Based on patient and tumor characteristics, some authors favor laparoscopic microwave ablation (LMWA) over the percutaneous approach (PMWA) for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We compared the two techniques in terms of technique efficacy, local tumor progression (LTP) and complication rates.Study design: A retrospective comparative analysis was performed on 91 consecutive patients (102 HCC tumors) who underwent PMWA or LMWA between October 2014 and May 20...

ConclusionsWe demonstrated the feasibility and safety of LECS for SMTs even on the EGJ. Fundoplication after LECS may be an approach for the prevention of postoperative reflux esophagitis. Future research is warranted to validate the efficacy of the addition of fundoplication.

Conclusion: There was no significant difference between the groups in terms of tube changes and side effects. So that we can start with the largest possible uncuffed tube to decrease ETT leak, both laparotomy and laparoscopic operations in children can be achieved with safe mechanical ventilation and target tidal volume.
