A new laparoscopic surgical system enables surgeons to use two instruments at once via a single port in the abdomen. The FMX314 surgical system is designed to provide accurate three-dimensional (3D) triangulation of laparoscopic surgical instruments inserted through a multiple-use introducer placed in the abdomen with the aid of a trocar. The controls of each instrument are used separately outside of the body so as to closely mimic traditional laparoscopic equipment; surgeons actually feel as if they are manipulating two different tools, each within their own trocar.   Read more...

Liver transplantation from a living donor is considered to be one of the most complicated and difficult surgical procedures, given that the surgery has to guarantee the full functioning of the transplanted liver in both the recipient and donor. Mixing the two together makes the job all the more complex, even seemingly impossible. The operating procedure of laparoscopic liver transplantation (LLT) does not include the conventional opening of the upper abdomen. Instead, four or five incisions are made to allow access for surgical tools used to split the liver. The portion destined for the recipient is then removed from an incision (approximately 10cm) in the lower abdomen.   Read more...

Patients with coronary artery disease are at 3 times higher risk for thromboembolic complications if off Aspirin1. Distinct guidelines for use of antiplatelet agents don’t exist for all major urological procedures. Significant blood loss during laparoscopic procedures requiring transfusion or conversion to open occur at 4% to 6%2. Continuation of antiplatelet therapy may disrupt homeostasis and compromise oncological outcomes. The purpose of this study was to determine outcomes associated with continued aspirin use during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN).   Read more...

Being a doctor is a well-paid profession, but the highest earning medical professionals are surgeons. Everybody who has had surgery knows just how much trepidation you feel when entering that room and realizing that someone is going to cut you open, root around a bit, and then sew you back up. Now if a robotic surgeon were to conduct the same operation, would you feel any better about it? What if robotic surgery gave you a 10X better success rate? Which would you choose it then?   Read more...

Drexel University researchers, led by MinJun Kim, PhD, a professor in the College of Engineering, have successfully pulled off a feat that both sci-fi fans and Michael Phelps could appreciate. Using a rotating magnetic field they show how multiple chains of microscopic magnetic bead-based robots can link up to reach impressive speeds swimming through in a microfluidic environment. Their finding is the latest step toward using the so-called "microswimmers" to deliver medicine and perform surgery inside the body.

In a paper recently published in Nature Scientific Reports, the mechanical engineers describe their process for magnetically linking and unlinking the beads while they're swimming, and individually controlling the smaller decoupled robots in a magnetic field. This data helps further the concept of using microrobots for targeted, intravenous drug delivery, surgery and cancer treatment.   Read more...

A 59-year-old man presenting with fecal occult blood visited our hospital. He was diagnosed with advanced lower rectal cancer, which was contiguous with the prostate and the left seminal vesicle. There were no metastatic lesions with lymph nodes or other organs. We performed laparoscopic total pelvic exenteration (LTPE) using transanal minimal invasive surgery technique with bilateral en bloc lateral lymph node dissection for advanced primary rectal cancer after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy. The total operative time was 760 min, and the estimated blood loss was 200 ml. LTPE is not well established technically, but it has many advantages including good visibility of the surgical field, less blood loss, and smaller wounds. A laparoscopic approach may be an appropriate choice for treating locally advanced lower rectal cancer, which requires TPE.   Read more...

Robotic surgery is increasingly used in the field of rectal cancer surgery. Since miles introduced the technique in 1908, abdominoperineal resection (APR) has been the gold standard treatment option for distal rectal cancer. However, improved surgical techniques, better instrumentation, and increased understanding that a tumour- free margin of 1-2 cm is ontologically safe, together with advances in preoperative chemo radiation therapy, have led to a shift in the treatment of rectal cancer to sphincter –preserving surusinga double-stapling technique after ultralow (ISR) has been adopted as an alternative to abdominoperineal excision for very low rectal tumours.   Read more...

A man who suffered horrendous abdominal and pelvic complications following failures in surgery to treat bowel cancer has received compensation. Mr Shortall, was represented by specialist medical negligence lawyer, Dr James Piers. Mr Shortall was diagnosed with bowel cancer in the summer of 2008. He underwent laparoscopic surgery (keyhole surgery) to remove the cancerous section of bowel and to re-join the bowel ends. The process of re-joining the bowel ends was not performed correctly (which can happen) and the join leaked.

Mr Shortall became profoundly unwell because of this leak, and eight days later had to undergo further extensive surgery to wash out his abdomen and perform a colostomy.

Dr. Sullivan was also the first physician in the United States to place a transpyloric shuttle device in a human patient. The shuttle consists of a large spherical bulb connected by a flexible tether to a smaller cylindrical bulb. Once placed endoscopically, the bulbs create an intermittent seal intended to reduce the rate of gastric outflow, resulting in decreased caloric intake and increased weight loss. An open-label, nonrandomized study of 20 patients treated with the transpyloric shuttle was reported at a meeting of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons in 2013 (abstract AB ET013). After six months, patients achieved a mean excess weight loss of 50%±26.4% and a mean weight loss of 15.6±5.7 kg. Two patients required device removal because of persistent gastric ulceration. Experts said it could be approved in the latter half of 2017.   Read more...

A negative appendectomy occurs when a normal appendix is removed following a medical workup for acute abdominal pain that indicates surgical intervention, and is more common in people diagnosed with various lower abdominal pain.

Approximately 30% of patients admitted to the hospital for acute lower abdominal pain are discharged without fully diagnosed the cause of the pain, as lab tests are often of limited value in case of acute appendicitis. Advanced imaging studies like multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) are very helpful in diagnosis of acute abdominal pain of unknown etiology, however they are not 100 percent promising and as cost as well as a patient's cumulative dose of ionizing radiation need to be taken into account, it doesn't always make sense to order these studies.   Read more...

In January 2001, NICE has stated that open mesh (that is, Lichtenstein) repair should be the “preferred” procedure for repair for repair of primary inguinal hernias, and the laparoscopic repair should be “considered” only for recurrent or bilateral hernias. But in spite of this guideline the number of laparoscopic hernia repair has doubled. All the clinical and statistical evidence shows that laparoscopic hernia repair achieves good result and will continue to flourish as increasingly well informed patients seek out hospitals in which their hernias can be repaired with little pain and early return to full activity. After all, there are few takers for open cholecystectomy anymore.   Read more...

TUBAL sterilisation through Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) has been used abroad for more than 10 years, but is still a relatively new technique in Thailand.

The method involves inserting a tiny camera and surgical instrument through the vagina, which is the body's natural opening, so as to view the area that cannot normally be seen. This means there is no need to make any abdominal incisions. This technique is not only used for sterilisation of women, but can also be applied to other treatments, such as removing the fallopian tubes due to an ectopic pregnancy, removing an ovarian cyst, as well as performing a hysterectomy, with no postoperative scarring.   Read more...

Hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) or handoscopic surgery was described in the 1990s as a means of overcoming obstacles presented by laparoscopic procedures. surgeons first introduced the gloved hand into the abdomen vie a mini laparotomy to improve depth perception, regain tactile sensation, aid in tissue extraction, and reduce operative time. This method relied upon tight apposition of the abdominal wall tissues against the surgeon’s forearm to maintain pneumperitoneum. difficulty with air leak and the inability to advance or withdraw the hand with sudden loss of pneumoperitoneum led necessarily to the development of hand-assist devices.

Medical error is not included on death certificates or in rankings of cause of death. Martin Makary and Michael Daniel assess its contribution to mortality and call for better reporting. The annual list of the most common causes of death in the United States, compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), informs public awareness and national research priorities each year. The list is created using death certificates filled out by physicians, funeral directors, medical examiners, and coroners. However, a major limitation of the death certificate is that it relies on assigning an International Classification of Disease (ICD) code to the cause of death.1 As a result, causes of death not associated with an ICD code, such as human and system factors, are not captured. The science of safety has matured to describe how communication breakdowns, diagnostic errors, poor judgment, and inadequate skill can directly result in patient harm and death. We analyzed the scientific literature on medical error to identify its contribution to US deaths in relation to causes listed by the CDC

Medicolegal cases are pertaining to legal aspects of the practice of medicine as malpractice or patient consent for operations or patient information. Medico legal field is one such field that has never been centre stage in field of medicine, due to the lack of expertise in this field. Until few years, not many would have thought that we doctors would have to face medico legal problems. Even the so called developing countries are also influenced by Westernization. With this changing scenario, doctors have to adapt to the situation and may have to face such legal tangles, which is intangible and disturbing sometimes.   Read more...
