Laparoscopic versus open wedge resection for gastrointestinal stromal tumors of the stomach: a meta-analysis.
Authors: Yang Z, Li P, Hu Y Abstract Introduction: With the rapid development of minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic (LAP) wedge resection has become the first-choice treatment for primary gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) of the stomach. Aim: To investigate the safety and feasibility of LAP wedge resection and the choice of surgical treatment for GISTs of the stomach through a meta-analysis and systematic review. Material and methods: The literature was widely searched for comparative studies on open (OPEN) and LAP wedge resection for GISTs published before April 2017. The articles were selected...

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy: lateral transperitoneal versus posterior retroperitoneal approach - prospective randomized trial.
Conclusions: To our knowledge this is the largest prospective randomized study comparing LTA to PRA. We demonstrated safety, efficacy and very low morbidity of both techniques. The PRA proved superior to LTA in terms of lower intensity of postoperative pain and shorter hospital stay. PMID: 31118978 [PubMed] (Source: Videosurgery and Other Miniinvasive Techniques)

Emergency surgery in older patients.
Conclusions: Decisions about suitable therapy in the acute care setting should be made after consideration of the overall health of a patient. This study shows that age itself has a huge impact on postoperative results. The older the patient is, the higher the risk of perioperative death. We recommend patient evaluation using the POSSUM scale to better predict this risk. PMID: 31118981 [PubMed] (Source: Videosurgery and Other Miniinvasive Techniques)

A minimally invasive modified technique for female stress urinary incontinence: transobturator tape without paraurethral dissection.
Authors: Onuk Ö Abstract Introduction: Mid-urethral slings, including transobturator tape (TOT), tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), tension-free vaginal tape-obturator (TVT-O), and a single incision sling, are the most popular procedures for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Although the classical TOT procedure is a minimally invasive technique, we believe that this technique can be further improved.

Contemporary imaging methods for the follow-up after endovascular abdominal aneurysm repair: a review.
Authors: Kazimierczak W, Serafin Z, Kazimierczak N, Ratajczak P, Leszczyński W, Bryl Ł, Lemanowicz A Abstract Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is defined as a localized enlargement of the aortic cross-section where the diameter is greater than 3 cm or more than 50% larger than the diameter in a normal segment. The most important complication of AAA is rupture, which, if untreated, results in mortality rates of up to 90%. Conventional open surgical repair is associated with significant 30-day mortality. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a significantly less invasive procedure; it is related to a lower early mo...

The evolution of the anterior capsulotomy.

The reasons for the opening of the capsule have changed from a roughly made tear to allow access to the nucleus for its extraction, to the creation of more regular openings to allow support for intraocular lenses. With the development of continuous circular tears it was possible to be certain to contain the intraocular lens (IOL) i...
