Laparoscopic sclerotherapy of large endometriomas: is it a reasonable approach?
De Cicco Nardone et al reported their experience in 53 women presenting with large endometriomas, which were exclusively managed by sclerotherapy using a laparoscopic route. . Recurrences and fertility outcomes were encouraging, suggesting that laparoscopic sclerotherapy could be a safe and reproducible alternative to cystectomy in large endometrioma.
We present a case of a 55-year old male patient who underwent TAPP procedure with proposed iatrogenic testicular artery injury resulting in a bilateral retroperitoneal hematoma. The treatment was conservative, and the patient was discharged in good general condition after 13 days. Six months postoperatively, no signs of hernia recurrence were observed. According to available literature, this is the first conservatively treated occult testicular artery injury during TAPP inguinal hernioplasty. PMID: 32644861 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: A wide range of histopathological findings occur in specimens after LSG, requiring a relevant number of patients additional therapies or surveillance. Therefore, routine histopathological examination after LSG is recommendable. PMID: 32644013 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract Index of consciousness (IoC) consisting of IoC1 and IoC2, is a new analgesia monitoring indicator in anesthesia evaluation in the laparoscopic radical resection of colorectal cancer. Although the precise anesthetic dosage adjusted by IoC1 has been confirmed to enhance the recovery and reduce the complications of anesthesia, the most appropriate range of IoC2 during anesthesia remains unclear. To investigate the correlation between IoC2 and peri-operative indicators of patients during laparoscopic radical resection of colorectal cancer, the current randomized, controlled, and single-blinded clinical trial ...

ConclusionIAP with pneumoperitoneum may lead to renal hypoxia in children. Renal rSO2 returns to normal with desufflation. Renal NIRS monitorization might be needed in patients with renal parenchymal and vascular pathologies, solitary kidney, and multiorgan pathologies that may affect renal oxygenation.

no LK Abstract Purpose To analyze, in aged obese patients, the weight loss, comorbidity control, and safety postoperative complications of bariatric surgery by Roux-en-Y gastric bypass technique. Methods Twenty-seven patients who underwent laparoscopic weight-reducing gastroplasty with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass to treat obesity were included. All patients were ≥ 60 years old at the time of surgery. The Wilcoxon test was used for statistical analysis, and a p-value ≤0.05it was considered significant. Results Ten (90.9%) patients with dyslipidemia were cured (p
