    A novel technique is described herein to perform a laparoscopic varicocelectomy using the high-ligation modified Palomo technique. The variation in this case is the preservation of lymphatic drainage by intraoperative identification of the lymphatics using intratesticular injection of methylene...

    A retrospective analysis comparing intraoperative physiological variables during laparoscopic and open pyloromyotomies was undertaken during an 18-month period at our institution. Fifty cases were examined (22 laparocopic and 28 open). Operative time, temperature change, end-tidal CO2, heart...
