Abstract Objective Minimally invasive surgery has become common in surgical resections of gastric subepithelial tumors. An endostapler technique is simple and easy to perform when cutting the stomach. Gastrotomy using a hand-sewn repair is a new approach for identifying and removing gastric subepithelial tumors, but few studies have evaluated its efficacy. In this study, we demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this novel technique using a robot-assisted approach. Materials and methods A ...

Abstract Introduction Robotic systems are designed to address the limitations of laparoscopic surgery, leading to a growing interest in robotic rectal surgery. However, certain technical limitations associated with the previous systems (da Vinci S & Si) have arguably slowed down its wholesale adoption. The latest robotic platform, the da Vinci Xi, addresses these limitations. This study aims to examine the short-term surgical outcomes of 240 single-docking fully-robotic rectal cancer resections ...
Abstract Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is characterised by poor oncological outcomes with curative treatment only possible for a minority. Symptoms are dependent on the stage of the disease and location within the pancreas with constitutional decline often prominent. Patients require biochemical investigations and accurate imaging with CT to determine stage of disease and local resectability. CT-PET and endoscopic ultrasound are increasingly used preoperatively. Surgery remains the cornerston...

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 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...

Abstract Objectives The Surgical Apgar Score (SAS) can predict the incidence of complications in different surgical fields. However, it is rarely studied in pancreatic cancer. The aim of the present study was to assess the predictive value of the SAS in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), and then propose a modified SAS which was more suitable for pancreatic cancer patients. Materials and methods A prospective cohort study of 160 PDAC patients was concluded. The primary endpoint was 30-day ...

Abstract Traumatic diaphragmatic hernia is one of the sequela of thoraco-abdominal injury, occurring in about 0.5%–5% of patients presenting post major trauma. Motor vehicle collision is the leading blunt trauma etiology. A high level of suspicion is essential to discover such injuries, as a majority of the patients can be asymptomatic. A case of a successful trans-abdominal laparoscopic reduction and repair of a large acute traumatic diaphragmatic hernia is presented as a video demonstration. W...
