Anatomic Indications for Using Actuator-driven Pulsed Water Jet for Hepatectomy
Conclusions: Using ADPJ, we could perform R0 hepatectomy in all cases, which preoperatively were considered to have a high chance of being margin positive. We consider the best indication for using ADPJ is when the tumor and vessels to be preserved are attached or very close over a long distance.

Peroral Endoscopic Diverticulotomy (POED) for Zenker Diverticulum Using Submucosal Injection to Perform a Complete Myotomy
We describe our first 5 consecutive cases treated by a new variant of the technique that allows a deeper and longer myotomy than the standard one. Technical success was achieved in all the cases. All patients showed a significant improvement and relevant disappearance of preoperative dysphagia. Tips for the technique are described in the paper. This variant of peroral endoscopic diverticulotomy for Zenker diverticulum is feasible, effective, and guarantees a complete myotomy in selected patients.

Cost-Effective Filtrating Suction to Evacuate Surgical Smoke in Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The wide and fast spread of COVID-19 around the world has led to a dramatic increase in the need for protection products both for carers and for populations. Surgical team protection includes a systematic screening of patients, wearing protection devices by all the operating staff, and adequate management of aerosols. The risk of aerosol dispersal is particularly high during laparoscopic and robotic surgeries due to the interaction between circulating CO2 and surgical smoke that may contain small viral particles. To decrease the risk of virus transmission, many recommendations have been implemented including the use of int...

Defining the Term “Elderly” in the Field of Surgery: A Retrospective Study Regarding the Changes in the Immunoinflammatory Indices During the Immediate Perioperative Period of the Elective Uncomplicated Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Conclusions: The increased age causes the unfavorable changes in early postoperative immunoinflammatory indices after the uncomplicated laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Thus, the term “elderly” can be rephrased by the term “vulnerable to various surgical stresses.” The thresholds for “elderly” defined herein seem impractical. Namely, the increased vulnerability caused by the aging seems modified by the individual surgical procedures. (Source: Surgical Laparoscopy, Endoscopy and Percutaneous Techniques)
