Background: pH monitoring has been established as the “gold standard” in the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux. Evaluation of experimental antireflux therapy should therefore also include this technique, but a suitable technique in an experimental model did not exist so far. The aim of our...
Background: The vasoactive peptide octreotide has an established role in controlling variceal hemorrhage. The mechanism of action is believed to be a reduction in splanchnic blood flow. A decrease in splanchnic blood flow should be mirrored by a decrease in gastric mucosal blood flow (GMBF)....
Ectopic mediastinal parathyroid adenomas are rare lesions that typically necessitate either median sternotomy or thoracotomy. More recently, video-assisted thoracoscopy has been used to excise mediastinal parathyroid adenomas. Herein we describe a novel technique in which we used a minimally...
Background: In patients with small papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC), we evaluated the operative feasibility and safety of video-assisted thyroidectomy (VAT) and the completeness of the surgical resection. Methods: Video-assisted thyroidectomy was attempted in 24 patients with thyroid...
Background: This study aimed to evaluate clinically and manometrically the anorectal function of patients with imperforate anus after repair with laparoscopically assisted anorectoplasty (LAR), as compared with the function of patients after undergoing the conventional method, posterior sagittal...
Background: Two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been reported to be safe and feasible. However, whether it offers any additional advantages remains controversial. This study reports a randomized trial that compared the clinical outcomes of two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy versus...
Infected pancreatic necrosis carries a high morbidity and mortality from sepsis and multisystem organ failure. Following confirmation of the infection by CT-guided fine needle aspiration, treatment consists of broad spectrum antibiotics (imipenim-cilastin) followed by emergency open (laparotomy)...
Gunshot wounds, and in particular chest gunshot wounds, are becoming a growing problem in daily practice at many hospitals. Many authors propose a conservative attitude in certain cases. We present a patient with a chest gunshot wound successfully solved under conservative means and...
Background: Heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) affects approximately 25–50% of morbidly obese patients. Although objective physiologic testing has been reported extensively in patients following Nissen fundoplication, there are no previous reports of such testing in morbidly...
Background: Initially, treatment for anastomotic strictures was surgical. Currently. however, endoscopic techniques are preferred. This study aimed to investigate the efficiency and safety of endoscopic treatment using argon plasma coagulation in combination with diathermy. Methods: From 1995 to...
