Low Grade Appendiceal Mucinous Neoplasm Diagnosed During Exploratory Laparoscopy for a Presumed Pelvic Mass
ConclusionAppendiceal masses should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a presumed pelvic mass. For low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasms that are diagnosed intra-operatively, laparoscopic resection without spillage or rupture is a feasible and appropriate approach for treatment (1,2,3).

Simplified Laparoscopic Sacrohysteropexy
ConclusionLaparoscopic sacrohysteropexy is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to hysterectomy to treat uterine prolapse in women. We present a novel approach of performing laparoscopic sacrohysteropexy that differs from previously described methods 1, 2; it is shorter, simpler, and reduces possible complications. Key differences include the mesh type, site of attachment, and dissection of the peritoneum while creating the possibility of future vaginal delivery after pregnancy. Our simplified technique uses a polyvinylidene fluoride mesh woven with a square weave secured to the posterior aspect of the cervix under...

Retroperitoneal Laparoscopic Para-Aortic Lymphadenectomy in Para-Aortic Staging of Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer
ConclusionThe real novelty of this video is how the para-aortic area nodes are seen when green indocyanine is injected into the cervix. This video shows a simplified technique of retroperitoneal para-aortic lymphadenectomy using an advanced bipolar sealant. Some tips and tricks to facilitate the procedure are emphasized, especially in cases of accidental peritoneal tears. To decrease the incidence of lymphoceles before completing the surgery, the peritoneal window should be opened. This surgical technique is especially useful in endometrial cancer for staging the para-aortic area in obese patients and in advanced cervical ...
