Evaluation of diagnostic laparoscopy for penetrating abdominal injuries: About 131 anterior abdominal stab wound.

Surg Endosc 2021 Jun 2. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Department of Gastrointestinal, Metabolic and Surgical Oncology, University Hospital Nancy Brabois, Rue du Morvan, 54511, Vandoeuvre-Les-Nancy, France.

A Novel Technique Using a Thulium Fiber Laser for Simultaneous Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy and Transpelvic Endopyelotomy for High-Insertion Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction.

J Endourol Case Rep 2020 29;6(4):297-301. Epub 2020 Dec 29.

Department of Urology, Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, New York, USA.

Endopyelotomy is a minimally invasive option for treatment of ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction. Although largely supplanted by laparoscopic or robot-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty, it retains efficacy and utility in the absence of a crossing vessel in patients not fit for laparoscopy, patients with secondary obstructions or strictures, or those with stones requiring simultaneous treatment. Antegrade endopyelotomy is most commonly performed with scissors, cold knife, or more recently, using a Holmium laser. Read More

Rev Med Suisse 2021 Jan;17(720-1):90-94

Service d'urologie, Département de chirurgie, HUG, 1211 Genève 14.

Over the last year, urologic progress remains driven by the quick technologic evolution, with a focus on Laser and robotics. The latter appears to potentially contribute to the drift towards ambulatory surgery, in particular for distinct sub-populations harbouring kidney or prostate cancer. The Da Vinci robot appears also to increase the drive towards minimally invasiveness with respect to female incontinence and the laparoscopic placement of an artificial urethral sphincter. Read More

Hospital variation in responses to safety warnings about power morcellation in hysterectomy.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2021 Jun 24;224(6):589.e1-589.e13. Epub 2020 Dec 24.

Internal Medicine, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT; Cancer Outcomes Public Policy and Effectiveness Research Center, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

Background: Safety warnings about power morcellation in 2014 considerably changed hysterectomy practice, especially for laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy that typically requires morcellation to remove the corpus uteri while preserving the cervix. Hospitals might vary in how they respond to safety warnings and altered hysterectomy procedures to avoid use of power morcellation. However, there has been little data on how hospitals differ in their practice changes. Read More
