Laparoscopic repair of duodenal atresia has been reported. Reports to date have indicated use of standard laparoscopic suturing and knot tying. Unfortunately, there has been a high leak rate associated with the technique. We report our technique of using U-clips for the duodenoduodenostomy, thus limiting trauma to the duodenum during the anastomosis and less risk for postoperative leakage.

    Lymphangioma of the pancreas is a rare benign tumor of lymphatic origin. Retrope - ritoneal lymphangiomas account for 1% of all lymphangiomas. Herein, we report a case of cystic pancreatic lymphangioma diagnosed in 34 year-old female patient who was hospitalized for a slight pain in the...

    Mental workload is a finite resource and is increased while learning new tasks and performing complex tasks. Measurement of a surgeon’s mental workload may therefore be an indication of expertise. We hypothesized that surgeons who were expert at laparoscopic suturing would have more spare...

    Background: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) may be very time consuming, and depending on the anesthesia, the contents of the stomach may reflux to the esophagus and cause the patient to aspirate. To prevent these situations, many practitioners suggest using an overtube, but no study has...
