Uterine leiomyomata are the most frequent leiomyomata. However, this benign tumor can also arise in unusual locations (e.g. ovaries, urethra, bladder and vulva). The diagnostic process of ovarian leiomyomata can be difficult, and it is mostly incidental: the lesions are usually small and the clinical presentation is mainly asymptomatic. Since the first case described in 1862, less than 100 cases have been described. Some of these lesions have been treated laparoscopically. To our knowledge, this...

BACKGROUND: TEM was introduced to combine the curativeness of full thickness excision with minimum morbidity, while traditional rectal surgery is burdened by high morbidity and mortality rates. However, while it is still a matter of considerable debate whether local excision is an adequate approach for curative resection of rectal cancer, new minimally invasive operative techniques have been introduced. The purpose of this paper was to show the indications, the tips and long term results of this...
