    Background: Postoperative adhesions are a major cause of morbidity, accounting for approximately 5% of the readmissions of surgical patients. Bowel obstruction is attributed to adhesions in more than half of the cases, many of which are following colon and rectal surgery. Laparoscopic surgery...

C.; Hon, Sophie S. F.; Leung, Wing Wa; Ka Lau Leung // Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques;Aug2009, Vol. 19 Issue 4, p479 

    Background: Emergency open colectomy is generally agreed, by most surgeons, to be the treatment of choice for complicated cecal diverticulitis. However, the literature on the use of laparoscopy in treating this surgical emergency is scanty. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety...

    Aim: Single-incision laparoscopic colectomy (SILC) often requires steeper Trendelenburg positioning to displace or keep the small intestine away from the operative site. We have developed hybrid SILC in which we make a transumbilical incision to extract the specimen first and utilize a multiflap...

    Introduction. Large volume paracentesis is considered a safe procedure carrying minimal risk of complications and rarely causing morbidity or mortality. The most common complications of the procedure are ascitic fluid leakage, hemorrhage, infection, and perforation. The purpose of this study was...

    Short and medium term outcomes from laparoscopic antireflux surgery are generally excellent. A small number of patients suffer recurrent reflux or intolerable side-effects and may require reoperation. In this paper we describe our experience of 35 laparoscopic reoperations from a single center....

    Incarcerated femoral hernia is a common surgical emergency condition. Diagnosis is always obvious and straightforward by clinical examination, and open surgical repair is the mainstay of treatment. In the era of minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic repair of femoral hernia has been shown to...
