This paper describes and discusses the surgical steps needed to perform a laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy. The current lack of standardization of the operative technique can account for the limited diffusion of this procedure. The issue of spleen preservation, which cannot be overemphasized,...
Esophagus resection is the adequate treatment for some benign esophageal diseases, especially caustic and peptic stenosis and end-stage motility dysfunction. However, the most frequent indications for esophageal resection are the high-grade dysplasia of Barrett esophagus and nonmetasta-sized...
Traditional monopolar and bipolar electrosurgery remain very useful in laparoscopic surgery. The need for meticulous hemostasis and the tedium of vessel ligation in advanced cases has propelled the development of new energy source devices that have proved to be remarkably helpful in both...
With the challenges that the health sector now faces in accordance with readjustments and demands for increased efficiency, resource utilization, and innovation, we have initiated a project to develop the future operating room for advanced laparoscopic surgery. New hospitals are being built that...
The success of laparoscopic fundoplication has extended the use of the laparoscopic approach to treating more difficult situations such as paraesophageal hernias (PEHs) or type IlIl (mixed) hiatal hernia. The results have shown that laparoscopic repair is feasible and safe. However, several...
Laparoscopic splenectomy in cases of splenomegaly has been shown to be feasible in experienced hands, even though the size of the spleen increases the operative time and difficulty. Laparoscopic splenectomy for splenomegaly offers the same advantages as for patients with smaller spleens: a...
Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair, a topic of great debate today, has evolved to be a feasible and safe procedure. It has been shown to be as effective as open repair, with a lower recurrence rate. Despite the excellent results of the laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias, numerous...
Many techniques for creating the gastrojejunal anastomosis while performing laparoscopic gastric bypass in obese patients have been described. The stapled anastomoses comprise the circular stapler technique, using either a 21 or a 25-mm anvil, and the linear stapler technique. The handsewn...
