Abstract Background Foreign body ingestion is a commonly encountered presentation. The majority of foreign bodies pass in stool spontaneously within one week or are managed endoscopically within the first 24–48 hours. No guidelines are available for management of chronically retained foreign bodies at present. Case report A unique case is presented of two chronically retained teaspoons in the stomach that failed endoscopic retrieval and required laparoscopic surgery. Post operatively, the patien...

Abstract Objective To compare the efficacy of drug-eluting balloons for de novo and in-stent restenosis (ISR) for lesions of the femoropopliteal arteries during 12-month follow-ups. Materials and methods A retrospective analysis of 66 patients was performed, who had lower extremity atherosclerosis obliterans and were treated with drug-eluting balloons from June 2016 to June 2017. All the lesions were femoropopliteal, including 47 de novo lesions and 19 ISR lesions. Clinical results were followed...

Abstract For helping millions of patients to live longer and possess higher quality life, the innovation of novel surgical procedures is very necessary and urgent. This paper introduces a series of innovations of Dr. Xiujun Cai, such as Laparoscopic Peng's multifunctional operative dissector, curettage and aspiration procedure, Cai's associating liver partition with portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy, sutureless anastomosisetc in minimally invasive field. The paper advocates the pace of...

Abstract Introduction Bariatric surgery has been shown to be an effective method of treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with long-term benefits, however, the mechanisms of action and the optimum operative procedure remains unclear. The aim of this systemic review was to compare the efficacy of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in resolving OSA. Methods A comprehensive search of MEDLINE, Pubmed, Embase, and OVID was performed. Studies that reported ...

Abstract Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has gained interest, as the potential alternative to portal vein embolisation for inducing future liver remnant hypertrophy in patients at risk of post-hepatectomy liver failure but is associated with high morbidity and mortality. As a result, several variant ALPPS have been reported to reduce ALPPS related morbidity and mortality. ALPPS is able to induce more extensive hypertrophy in a shorter time-peri...

Abstract Chronic cornual pregnancy is rare. A 37-year-old woman, G1P0, presented with cornual mass, mild vaginal bleeding, and low serum human chorionic gonadotropin. Cornuostomy and cornual repair were performed by laparoscopy. With its atypical symptoms, it's a challenge for the gynecologists to make accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Abstract Objective To present our classification for peripheral nerve schwannomas as well as explore the surgical strategies and operative management of peripheral nerve schwannomas based on the intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (INM) technique and to decrease the risk of postoperative neurological deficits in the management of these schwannomas. Materials and methods A retrospective study was conducted on 92 cases of peripheral nerve microsurgery performed, using the INM technique. W...

Abstract Objective To compare the therapeutic effects of two types of tympanostomy tubes, in terms of extrusion time and recurrence rate, after endoscopic ventilation tube placement in adults with otitis media with effusion. Materials and methods The clinical data for 125 ears from 91 patients who underwent endoscopic ventilation tube placement was retrospectively reviewed. The ears included in the study were divided into Groups A and B. The Shepard tube was used in all ears from Group A. The T-...

Abstract Objective The authors present outcomes of robotic liver resections in comparison with open technique questioning the need to have experience of laparoscopy for such procedures before transition to robotic assisted. Materials and methods Retrospective review of liver resections done robotically from February 2015 to June 2017 compared to matched control cohort of open cases from January 2012 to December 2016. Results Twenty-one patients in the study group were compared with matched contr...
