UOC di Ginecologia Oncologica, Department of Women's and Children's Health, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A Gemelli IRCCS, Roma, Italia.

This video article demonstrates an inguino-abdominal combined approach for laterally extended pelvic resection, a major surgical procedure for locally advanced primary or recurrent gynecological cancer infiltrating the pelvic sidewall, for which palliative therapy is the only alternative.1 After local institutional review board approval (protocol No CICOG 02/03/62), we made a step by step surgical video of an inguino-abdominal combined approach for laterally extended pelvic resection , defined as an en bloc resection of a pelvic tumor with pelvic sidewall structures, including the iliopsoas and/or obturator internus muscles.2 3 The patient, a 48-year-old woman, diagnosed with single pelvic platinum resistant recurrence after five lines of chemotherapy for serous ovarian cancer G3, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage IIIC, BRCA wild type.

High ligation of the anal fistula tract by lateral approach: A prospective cohort study on a modification of the ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) technique.

Int J Surg 2018 Dec 19;60:9-14. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Department of Coloproctology, Yang Hospital, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) is a sphincter-preserving operation for anal fistulas. Although it has advantages in preserving continence after surgery, it is difficult to perform owing to the narrow field of view. We performed a modified surgical procedure based on the LIFT to overcome these drawbacks. Read More

Colon and Rectal Surgery Division, Humanitas Clinical and Research Center, Via Alessandro Manzoni, 56, 20089, Rozzano, Milan, Italy.

Background: Laparoscopic sigmoidectomy is the gold standard for elective surgical treatment of diverticulitis. A periumbilical single-port technique reduces the size of the access wound, usually to 3-4 cm. However, in the presence of large phlegmon or fistulae, the risk of conversion is higher and the extraction site might be enlarged. Read More

Long-term outcomes and complications after laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty vs. posterior sagittal anorectoplasty for high- and intermediate-type anorectal malformation.

Pediatr Surg Int 2018 Oct 17;34(10):1111-1115. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Saitama Children's Medical Center, Saitama, Japan.

Purpose: Laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty (LAARP) is a minimally invasive procedure in which the levator ani muscle is left to potentially improve postoperative fecal continence. This study aimed to retrospectively evaluate postoperative complications and long-term outcomes of fecal continence after LAARP and compare them to those after posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP).

Methods: Forty-five male patients with high and intermediate anorectal malformation (aged ≥ 4 years) who underwent LAARP or PSARP (LAARP 29, PSARP 16) from 1999 to 2013 were included. Read More

A curious case of cololithiasis.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2018 Sep 16;100(7):e188-e190. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of General Surgery, Royal Derby Hospital , Derby , UK.

Gallstone ileus is an uncommon cause of bowel obstruction that involves cholecystoenteric fistulation and resultant passage of gallstones into the bowel. In the vast majority of cases, the fistula forms between the gallbladder and duodenum leading to small bowel obstruction. We report a case of cholecystocolic fistulation and subsequent large-bowel obstruction in a 75-year-old woman who presented acutely after taking a bowel preparation for an outpatient colonoscopy during the course of an investigation of anaemia and nonspecific abdominal pain.

The surgical treatment of acute and severe diversion colitis mimicking ulcerative colitis: a case report.

Surg Case Rep 2018 Aug 2;4(1):86. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

Department of Surgery, Saitama Medical Center, Jichi Medical University, 1-847, Amanuma-cho, Omiya, Saitama-shi, Saitama, 330-8503, Japan.

Background: Diversion colitis (DC) is characterized by nonspecific inflammation in the remaining colon or rectum, and loss of the fecal stream plays a major role in the disease's development. Although the majority of patients are asymptomatic, medical and/or surgical treatment is required for those who are symptomatic. There is a particular interest on how to manage patients with acute and severe clinical presentations, but the pathogenesis is not fully understood. Read More

Robotic versus laparoscopic gastrectomy with lymph node dissection for gastric cancer: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial.

Trials 2018 Jul 31;19(1):409. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Second Department of Surgery, School of Medicine, Wakayama Medical University, 811-1, Kimiidera, Wakayama, 641-8510, Japan.

Background: Laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) has several benefits as a treatment of gastric cancer (GC), including reduced pain, early recovery of intestinal function, and shorter hospital stay. LG still has several drawbacks, however, including limited range of movement, amplification of hand tremors, and inconvenient surgical positioning. Around the peripancreatic area, laparoscopic lymph node dissection, therefore, remains challenging; postoperative pancreatic fistula occurs in around 4-7% of patients undergoing LG. Read More

Malignant colo-duodenal fistula: management based on proposed classification.

Updates Surg 2018 Dec 27;70(4):449-458. Epub 2018 Jul 27.

Department of Gastroenterology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Duodenal involvement in colonic malignancy is a rare event and poses challenge to surgeons as it may entail major resection in a malnourished patient. Nine patients with malignant colo-duodenal fistula were reviewed retrospectively. Depending on the pattern of duodenal involvement, it was classified as-type I involving lateral duodenal wall less than half circumference; type II involving more than half circumference away from papilla; type III involving more than half circumference close to papilla.

Mesh-augmented versus direct abdominal closure in patients undergoing open abdomen treatment.

Hernia 2018 Oct 19;22(5):785-792. Epub 2018 Jul 19.

Department of Visceral Surgery and Medicine, University Hospital, Bern, Switzerland.

Background: Open abdomen (OA) may be required in patients with abdominal trauma, sepsis or compartment syndrome. Vacuum-assisted wound closure and mesh-mediated fascial traction (VAWCM) is a widely used approach for temporary abdominal closure to close the abdominal wall. However, this method is associated with a high incidence of re-operations in short term and late sequelae such as incisional hernia. Read More

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Southampton General Hospital, University Hospitals Southampton NHS Trust, Southampton, UK.

Background: Botulinum toxin injected into the internal anal sphincter is used in the treatment of chronic anal fissure but there is no standardised technique for its administration. This randomised single centre trial compares bilateral (either side of fissure) to unilateral injection.

Methods: Participants were randomised to receive bilateral (50 + 50 units) or unilateral (100 units) Dysport injections into the internal anal sphincter in an outpatient setting. Read More

Background & Aims: Despite significant advances in the treatment of Crohn's disease (CD), most patients still develop stricturing or penetrating complications that require surgical resections. We performed a systematic review of mechanisms and potential treatments for tissue damage lesions in CD patients.

Methods: We searched the PubMed, MBASE, and Cochrane databases from September 2016 through July 2017 for full-length articles on CD, fibrosis, damage lesions, mesenchymal stem cells, and/or treatment. Read More
