Preservation of superior rectal artery in laparoscopically assisted subtotal colectomy with ileorectal anastomosis for slow transit constipation.

World J Gastroenterol 2021 Jun;27(22):3121-3129

Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery, Department of Surgery, Tri-Service General Hospital, National Defense Medical Center, Taipei 11490, Taiwan.

Background: Slow transit constipation (STC) has traditionally been considered as a functional disorder. However, evidence is accumulating that suggests that most of the motility alterations in STC might be of a neuropathic etiology. If the patient does not meet the diagnosis of pelvic outlet obstruction and poorly response to conservative treatment, surgical intervention with subtotal colectomy may be effective. Read More

Neonatal Renal Failure in the Setting of Anorectal Malformation: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Cureus 2021 May 12;13(5):e14984. Epub 2021 May 12.

Pediatric Surgery, University of Missouri Kansas City School of Medicine, Kansas City, USA.

Anorectal malformations (ARMs) can occur in isolation or in association with other anomalies, most commonly those of the genitourinary systems. Morbidity and mortality are highest among patients who develop end-stage renal disease (ESRD) either from severe congenital anomalies (dysplastic kidneys) or from repeated infections in those who have vesicoureteral reflux or persistent recto-urinary fistulas. We describe our management strategy for a patient born with an ARM and bilateral dysplastic kidneys to highlight the nuances and complex decision-making considerations required in taking care of this complex patient population.

Intra-Operative Vascular Injury and Control During Laparoscopic and Robotic Mesh Explantation for Chronic Post Herniorrhaphy Inguinal Pain (CPIP).

Surg Technol Int 2021 May;38:206-211

Department of Surgery, David Geffen School of Medicine, Lichtenstein Amid Hernia Institute at UCLA Santa Monica, CA, USA.

Introduction: Chronic postherniorrhaphy inguinal pain (CPIP) is common following inguinal hernia repair. As even primary minimally-invasive inguinal hernia repairs carry a risk of significant intra-operative bleeding, it is unsurprising that reoperative groin exploration and mesh explantation for chronic post-inguinal herniorrhaphy pain confers an even higher risk of arteriotomy or venotomy due to a distorted anatomy and the presence of adhesions. In this report, we present a single institution's experience with the management of intra-operative vascular injury encountered during minimally invasive groin exploration and mesh explantation for CPIP.

Laparoscopic histological mapping for the determination of the length of aganglionic segment in children with Hirschsprung disease.

Adv Clin Exp Med 2021 Mar;30(3):233-237

Department of Pediatric Surgery, University Children's Hospital, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Kraków, Poland.

Background: Modern approach to the surgical treatment of Hirschsprung's disease (HD) consists in the earliest possible repair and reduction of the number of surgical interventions. Primary one-stage transanal endorectal pull-through (TEPT) technique requires preoperative determination of the length of aganglionic segment. The efficacy of the standard method - contrast enema - is questionable in patients with a poorly defined transitional zone. Read More

A novel combined enteroscopy and laparoscopy approach to prevent urethral complications in management of rectourethral fistula.

Surg Endosc 2021 04 1;35(4):1921-1926. Epub 2021 Feb 1.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Monash Children's, Monash Medical Center, Southern Health, Clayton, Australia.

Background: For the last 20 years, laparoscopy management of anorectal malformations (ARM) has been challenged due to the development of postoperative urethral diverticulum or injury caused by the imprecise transection of rectourethral fistulae, particularly rectobulbar fistulae situated deep in the pelvis. We have developed a combined approach of enteroscopy and laparoscopy for intraluminal incision of a rectourethral fistula.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 47 ARM patients who underwent surgical corrections using the combined approach between January 2019 and June 2020. Read More
