Objective assessment of robotic suturing skills with a new computerized system: A step forward in the training of robotic surgeons
This study compared the suturing skills of 13 surgically na ïve participants on an artificial intestinal anastomosis model that mimics real tissue. Each examinee sutured using da Vinci robot assistance under 2‐D and 3‐D visualization and with conventional laparoscopy (CL). Pressure‐measuring and image‐processing devices were employed to quantitative ly evaluate suturing skills. Five unique criteria were used to evaluate the skills of participants.ResultsSuturing under 3 ‐D visualization (P

Laparoscopic rectal tumor surgery after administration of a new sclerosing therapy (aluminum potassium sulfate and tannic acid injection) for internal hemorrhoids: A report of three cases
AbstractAluminum potassium sulfate and tannic acid (ALTA) injection is a new sclerosing therapy for internal hemorrhoids that has been gaining widespread use. However, there have been few reports about rectal cancer after ALTA injection. We performed laparoscopic surgery for three patients who had underwent ALTA therapy 6 months or 1 year earlier: (i) a 51 ‐year‐old man with neuroendocrine tumor; (ii) a 44‐year‐old woman with rectal cancer; and (iii) 77‐year‐old man with rectal cancer. All three patients had sclerosis of the resected rectal wall stump, making transection of the rectum difficult. Histological ex...

Mediastinoscopic salvage esophagectomy for recurrent esophageal squamous cell carcinoma after definitive chemoradiotherapy in a previously pneumonectomized patient
AbstractWe herein report a case of mediastinoscopic salvage esophagectomy for recurrent esophageal squamous cell carcinoma after definitive chemoradiotherapy in a previously pneumonectomized patient. A 66 ‐year‐old man with a medical history of left‐sided pneumonectomy for lung cancer was diagnosed with local recurrence of lower esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (cT3N0M0 cStage II) 9 years after definitive chemoradiotherapy. The mediastinoscopic cervical approach and laparoscopic transhiatal a pproach were combined, and the thoracic esophagus was safely mobilized to separate the esophagus from the stump of the left ...

Laparoscopic para ‐aortic lymphadenectomy for colorectal cancer with clinically suspected lymph node metastasis
ConclusionLaparoscopic para ‐aortic lymphadenectomy for advanced colorectal cancer with clinically suspected PALN is technically feasible and may be beneficial in selected patients. It is necessary to investigate the feasibility of this procedure in a future case series, and information regarding true oncologic outcome will require long‐term follow‐up.

Successful single ‐stage laparoscopic surgery using a preoperative self‐expanding metallic stent in patients with obstructive colorectal cancer
AbstractIntroductionAlthough a self ‐expanding metallic stent (SEMS) or a transnasal or transanal decompression tube is sometimes used as a bridge to surgery in patients with obstructive colorectal cancer, the optimal decompression procedure to achieve successful laparoscopic surgery remains unclear.MethodsForty ‐two patients with obstructive colorectal cancer who were preoperatively decompressed by using SEMS (the SEMS group,n = 20) or a decompression tube (the DT group,n = 22) between January 2010 and February 2017 were included in this retrospective study.ResultsIn the SEMS group, 20 patients (100%) were able to eat...

Simultaneous transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair and laparoscopic cholecystectomy: A report of 17 cases
ConclusionSimultaneous TAPP + LC is safe and can be regarded as a standard surgical procedure for patients with concomitant inguinal hernia and gallbladder stones. The TAPP + LC combination appears to help prevent the need for two hospitalizations and, thereby, reduces hospital stay and economic burden. (Source: Asian Journal of Endoscopic Surgery)

Laparoscopic distal gastrectomy in a patient with gastric cancer complicated by eventration of the diaphragm: A case report
AbstractDiaphragmatic eventration refers to an abnormal elevation of the diaphragm. Here, we report the case of a patient with gastric cancer who underwent successful laparoscopic distal gastrectomy despite the presence of diaphragmatic eventration. The patient was a 72 ‐year‐old man diagnosed with early gastric cancer in the antrum, as detected by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Preoperative imaging revealed an elevation of the left side of the diaphragm, which was diagnosed as diaphragmatic eventration. Laparoscopic surgery is beneficial for obtaining an op timal field of view. However, there are critical points th...
