Organ ‐preserving procedures as an option for treatment of patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours
ConclusionAs the “wait‐and‐see” policy can be not useful due to uncontrolled disease progression, choice of organ‐preserving treatment first can become the first line of decision taking in small benign pNETs. Our experience shows that organ‐preserving treatment is more comfortable for the surgeon and for the patient. However, it is not the universal position. The long‐term survival data still has to be estimated. (Source: Surgical Practice)

Triplication of small bowel with perforated pepticulcer: Report of a rarity with literature review
AbstractTriplication of small bowel is an extremely rare variant of enteric duplication with only one previously reported case in a neonate. Most enteric duplications are presented in neonates as intestinal obstruction. Herein we present a case of 3 ‐year‐old girl with acute abdomen due to perforation of triplicated ileum aiming to highlight the characteristic presenting features, the diagnostic difficulties and challenges of surgical intervention for this condition.

We report a case series of diffuse peritonitis caused by ile‐ocolic anastomotic failure after totally laparoscopic right hemicolectomy that were successfully managed by laparoscopic re‐interventions. In all the cases the anast omosis was resected and extracted, then peritoneal lavage with saline solution was performed and terminal ileostomy was fashioned in the right iliac fossa. Peritoneal lavage was repeated every 24 hours until the peritonitis was completely resolved. All the patients were successfully discharged aft er a median hospital stay of 13 days.
