Balloon sinuplasty in one-day surgery
CONCLUSIONS: BSD only allows widening of the ostia of the maxillary, frontal and sphenoid sinuses. BSD offers shorter post-surgical recovery, and a more rapid return to work because of its less invasive and less traumatic nature.PMID:34136041 | PMC:PMC8193750 | DOI:10.5114/wiitm.2021.103962 (Source: Videosurgery and Other Miniinvasive Techniques)

The importance of the Moskowitz artery as a lesser-known collateral pathway in the medial laparoscopic approach to splenic flexure mobilisation and its evaluation with preoperative computed tomography
Wideochir Inne Tech Maloinwazyjne. 2021 Jun;16(2):305-311. doi: 10.5114/wiitm.2020.100826. Epub 2020 Nov 15.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: The collateral pathways between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) play an important role in colonic surgery. The most well-known are the Drummond marginal artery and Riolan's arch. The Moskowitz artery, also known as the meandering mesenteric artery, is a lesser-known collateral pathway and represents another link between SMA and IMA. The Moskowitz artery runs along the colonic mesentery floor and represents the link between the proximal segment of the mid...
