Pancreatic Leak After a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy.

Obes Surg 2022 Jun 10. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Department of Surgery, Mayo Clinic, 200 1st St SW, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA.

Introduction: Severe adhesions in patients with previous abdominal operations may lead to a more challenging subsequent bariatric surgery [1, 2]. In this context, sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is the preferred weight loss surgery since it solely involves stomach resection (without bowel involvement) in one abdominal compartment. Additionally, SG has lower complication rates and a shorter operative time than other bariatric procedures [3, 4]. Read More

Three-Port Laparoscopic Spleen-Preserving Distal Pancreatectomy with Splenic Vessel Preservation.

JSLS 2022 Apr-Jun;26(2)

Ascension Providence Southfield, Southfield, MI.

Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy is now accepted treatment for benign and certain malignant pancreatic body and/or tail processes and is generally performed using four to six ports. Splenic preservation avoids inherent risks associated with the post-splenectomy state, but adds surgical complexity. In this case series, we describe our single surgeon's experience with a novel technique for safe, successful three-port laparoscopic spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy with splenic vessel preservation.

A Prognostic Impact of Splenectomy in Laparoscopic Distal Pancreatectomy on Benign/Borderline Pancreatic Tumors: A Change of the Era.

Yonsei Med J 2022 Jun;63(6):564-569

Division of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: In the past, spleen preservation during distal pancreatectomy (DP) was preferred; however, more recent studies reported comparable results between splenectomy and spleen preserving. We retrospectively reviewed patients in a single center who underwent laparoscopic DP with/without splenectomy, and evaluated the chronologic changes of surgical outcomes of the two procedures.

Materials And Methods: Patients who underwent laparoscopic DP with or without splenectomy due to benign/borderline tumor from 2005 to 2019 were included in this study. Read More

Impact of Underlying Disease and Preoperative Factors on Postoperative Outcomes After Laparoscopic Splenectomy: A Bicentric Retrospective Analysis.

Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech 2022 May 9. Epub 2022 May 9.

Department of Public Health, School of Medicine and Surgery.

Background: Although the laparoscopic approach is considered the gold standard for elective splenectomy, it is still debated whether the underlying disease affects postoperative outcomes. Given the importance of good patient selection in the early stages of the learning curve for laparoscopic splenectomy (LS), this study aimed to compare the postoperative outcomes following LS for malignant diseases and benign diseases (MDs and BDs).

Materials And Methods: A retrospective review of patients who underwent LS was performed at 2 different institutions between January 2013 and September 2020. Read More

Int J Surg 2022 Jul 13;103:106676. Epub 2022 May 13.

Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, the First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China. Electronic address:

Background: Laparoscopic radical antegrade modular pancreatosplenectomy (l-RAMPS) provides a new surgical approach for patients with pancreatic cancers of the body and tail. However, whether it can achieve comparable outcomes to the open RAMPS (o-RAMPS) remains an issue.

Methods: To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of l-RAMPS, the studies in the databases of Medline, Embase, and the Cochrane Library published before September 13, 2021 were searched and a meta-analysis was performed using the 2020 Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) guideline.

Department of Gastric Cancer, National Clinical Research Center for Cancer, Tianjin Key Laboratory of Cancer Prevention and Treatment, Cancer Hospital, Tianjin Medical University, Tianjin 300060, China.

The standard lymphadenectomy (D2) is the most important quality control index for the surgical treatment of locally advanced gastric cancer (LAGC). It is debatable whether there is a survival benefit of extended lymphadenectomy beyond D2 dissection. Para-aortic lymph nodes are not included in the range of D2 lymph node dissection. Read More
