Laparoscopic surgery for T4 colon cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Background In colon cancer, T4 stage is still assumed to be a relative contraindication for laparoscopic surgery considering the oncological safety. The aim of this systematic review with meta-analysis was to evaluate short- and long-term oncological outcomes after laparoscopic surgery for T4 colon cancer, and to compare these with open surgery. Methods Using systematic review of...

Low Hartmann’s procedure or intersphincteric proctectomy for distal rectal cancer: a retrospective comparative cohort study

PurposeTwo non-restorative options for low rectal cancer not invading the sphincter are the low Hartmann’s procedure (LH) or intersphincteric proctectomy (IP). The aim of this study was to compare postoperative morbidity with emphasis on pelvic abscesses after LH and IP.MethodsAll patients that had LH or IP for low rectal cancer were included in three centres between 2008 and...

Single-Port Surgery in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Review of Current Evidence

Center , PO Box 22660, 1100 DD Amsterdam , The Netherlands 1 & Willem A. Bemelman The majority of patients with Crohn's disease and up to 35 % of patients with ulcerative colitis will ultimately require

Acute laparoscopic and open sigmoidectomy for perforated diverticulitis: a propensity score-matched cohort

Background Hartmann’s procedure for perforated diverticulitis can be characterised by high morbidity and mortality rates. While the scientific community focuses on laparoscopic lavage as an alternative for laparotomy, the option of laparoscopic sigmoidectomy seems overlooked. We compared morbidity and hospital stay following acute laparoscopic sigmoidectomy (LS) and open...

Morbidity related to defunctioning ileostomy closure after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis and low colonic anastomosis

Purpose Defunctioning ileostomies are widely performed in order to prevent or treat anastomotic leakage after colorectal surgery. The aim of the present study was to determine morbidity related to stoma closure and to identify predictive factors of a complicated postoperative course. Methods A consecutive series of 138 patients were retrospectively analyzed after stoma reversal...

Risks of minimally invasive surgery underestimated: a report of the Dutch Health Care Inspectorate

Endoscopic surgery is known for its different eye–hand coordination and its learning curves. It encompasses complex and sensitive equipment that requires different maintenance and quality control. Despite the development of dedicated training programs and extensive research justifying the endoscopic revolution, the Dutch Health Care Inspectorate (DHI) [1] recently surprised...

Alternative specimen extraction techniques after laparoscopic emergency colectomy in inflammatory bowel disease

Background Omitting the extraction site incision potentially further decreases the abdominal wall trauma in laparoscopic surgery. The purpose of this study was to report the results of alternative specimen extraction techniques after laparoscopic emergency colectomy in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Methods Ten consecutive patients with IBD underwent (sub)acute...

Less adhesiolysis and hernia repair during completion proctocolectomy after laparoscopic emergency colectomy for ulcerative colitis

Background The aim of this study was to determine whether the need for adhesiolysis during completion proctectomy (CP) with ileopouch anal anastomosis (IPAA) is influenced by the surgical approach of the initial emergency colectomy for ulcerative colitis and the hospital setting. Methods One hundred consecutive patients who underwent CP with IPAA in our center between January...

Fibrin glue and transanal rectal advancement flap for high transsphincteric perianal fistulas; is there any advantage?

Backgrounds and aim In recent decades, fibrin glue has appeared as an alternative treatment for high perianal fistulas. Early results seemed promising, with high success rates being reported. However, with increasing follow-up, the enthusiasm was tempered because of disappointing results. The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the additional value of fibrin glue in...

A multidisciplinary evidence-based guideline for minimally invasive surgery.
