Vaginal Closure Before Colpotomy with an Endo-Stapler to Prevent Tumor Spillage in Laparoscopic Surgery for Gynecological Malignancy
CONCLUSION: Use of the endo-staplers to close the vagina before colpotomy according to the technique described is safe and feasible, with prevention of gross spillage of any malignant cells in the peritoneal cavity or vagina, which will further have a favorable oncologic outcome.PMID:33981135 | PMC:PMC8088333 | DOI:10.4293/JSLS.2020.00094 (Source: JSLS : Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons)

Laparo-Endoscopic Repair of Ventral Hernia and Rectus Diastasis
JSLS. 2021 Apr-Jun;25(2):e2020.00103. doi: 10.4293/JSLS.2020.00103.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Both umbilical and epigastric hernias may be associated with rectus muscle divarication. In such cases, isolated repair of combined hernia defects can have high recurrence rates and poorer cosmetic outcomes, thus the repair of both pathologies ought to be favored. The goal of the study below is to provide detailed technical aspects of the endoscopic retro-rectus mesh repair.METHODS: We chose a group of 16 patients who underwent the repair of ventral hernias associated with both primary and incisional rectus diastasis, using the extended-...

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy for Gallbladder Dysfunction and Polyps: Incidence and Follow up
This study aims to evaluate the incidence, indications, management, and long term follow up of cholecystectomy in patients with no gallstones, other than acalculous acute cholecystitis.METHODS: Prospectively collected data of 5675 patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) over 28 years was extracted and analyzed. Patients with biliary symptoms, no stones on ultrasound scans and abnormal hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid scans, and those with confirmed gallbladder polyps (GBP) were included.RESULTS: Two percent of cholecystectomies were performed in patients with acalculous pathology [1.3% functional gallbladder ...

JSLS. 2021 Apr-Jun;25(2):e2020.00103. doi: 10.4293/JSLS.2020.00103.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Both umbilical and epigastric hernias may be associated with rectus muscle divarication. In such cases, isolated repair of combined hernia defects can have high recurrence rates and poorer cosmetic outcomes, thus the repair of both pathologies ought to be favored. The goal of the study below is to provide detailed technical aspects of the endoscopic retro-rectus mesh repair.METHODS: We chose a group of 16 patients who underwent the repair of ventral hernias associated with both primary and incisional rectus diastasis, using the extended-...

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy for Gallbladder Dysfunction and Polyps: Incidence and Follow up
This study aims to evaluate the incidence, indications, management, and long term follow up of cholecystectomy in patients with no gallstones, other than acalculous acute cholecystitis.METHODS: Prospectively collected data of 5675 patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) over 28 years was extracted and analyzed. Patients with biliary symptoms, no stones on ultrasound scans and abnormal hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid scans, and those with confirmed gallbladder polyps (GBP) were included.RESULTS: Two percent of cholecystectomies were performed in patients with acalculous pathology [1.3% functional gallbladder ...

Vaginal Closure Before Colpotomy with an Endo-Stapler to Prevent Tumor Spillage in Laparoscopic Surgery for Gynecological Malignancy
CONCLUSION: Use of the endo-staplers to close the vagina before colpotomy according to the technique described is safe and feasible, with prevention of gross spillage of any malignant cells in the peritoneal cavity or vagina, which will further have a favorable oncologic outcome.PMID:33981135 | PMC:PMC8088333 | DOI:10.4293/JSLS.2020.00094 (Source: JSLS : Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons)
