    The role of splenic flexure mobilization in laparoscopic rectal surgery for rectal cancer

    Tao-Wei Ke, Christian Ross Geniales, William Tzu-Liang Chen

    Laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of colorectal cancer has gained an enormous advantage as compared to the traditional approach in terms of patient benefits. Although it has gained popularity among surgeons, there are still some contentious issues especially in laparoscopic rectal surgery.... Read more

    Minimally invasive contact X-ray brachytherapy as an alternative option in patients with rectal cancer not suitable for bespoke surgical resection

    Arthur Sun Myint, Jean Pierre Gerard

    Surgery remains the gold standard treatment for rectal cancer. All published guidelines and most protocols recommend surgery as the standard of care. However, non-surgical management of rectal cancer is increasingly gaining acceptance as it avoids extirpative surgery and a stoma. In patients who... Read more

    Laparoscopic hepatectomy for benign hepatic lesions: short and long-term outcomes including quality-of-life evaluation

    Sergio Renato Pais-Costa, Olímpia Alves Teixeira Lima, Guilherme Crispim Costa, Sandro José Martins

    Aim: Even though laparoscopic hepatectomy (LH) has proved to be both safe and effective in specialized centers; the restricted indications for resection in the case of benign liver lesions has resulted in poorly reported outcomes. Our aim was to describe the short and long-term results of LH to... Read more

    Enhanced recovery after rectal surgery: what we have learned so far

    Giovanni D. Tebala, Ayeshah Gordon-Dixon, Mohammad Imtiaz, Ashish Shrestha, Mohamed Toeima

    Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols are gradually becoming the gold standard in the perioperative management of rectal patients. It is a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach that has the great merit to involve and empower the patient and bring him or her back to the centre of... Read more

    Reduced-port surgery for rectal cancer

    Takashi Ishida, Kohei Shigeta, Koji Okabayashi, Masashi Tsuruta, Hirotoshi Hasegawa, Yuko Kitagawa

    Laparoscopic surgery for rectal cancer has short-term and long-term oncological outcomes similar to those of open surgery. Conventional multiport laparoscopic surgery (CMLS) for rectal cancer requires four or five abdominal incisions for trocars, each of which could lead to complications and/or... Read more

    Current state of transanal minimally invasive surgery in the management of rectal cancer

    Arman Erkan, Justin J. Kelly, John R. T. Monson

    Rectal cancer surgery has undergone a rapid change over the last few decades. We have come a long way from abdominoperineal resection to minimally invasive sphincter preserving techniques. Colorectal cancer screening programs made it possible to diagnose patients at earlier stages and this has... Read more

    Open or laparoscopic resection: does approach matter?

    Ebru Esen, Cihangir Akyol

    In colon cancer surgery, laparoscopic resection is a safer and more feasible method than open resection; however, despite its increasing popularity in recent years, laparoscopic approaches for the treatment of rectal cancer have not become a standard therapy option, due to the technical...

    Effect of mental training on short-term psychomotor skill acquisition in laparoscopic surgery - a pilot study

    Mohammad K Riaz, Abdul Muiz Shariffuddin, Benjie Tang, Afshin Alijani

    Aim: The mental demands of laparoscopic surgery create a steep learning curve for surgical trainees. Experienced surgeons informally conduct mental training prior to starting a complex laparoscopic procedure. Reconstructing haptic feedback to mentally observe surgeon-instrument-tissue interaction...

    Clinical feasibility of sphincter-preserving resection with transanal rectal dissection for low-lying rectal cancer in Japanese patients: a single-center cohort study

    Kimihiko Funahashi, Junichi Koike, Hiroyuki Shiokawa, Mitsunori Ushigome, Tomoaki Kaneko, Satoru Kagami, Takamaru Koda, Tatsuo Teramoto

    Aim: Recently, the transanal down-to-up rectal dissection, a new approach to improve the difficult total mesorectal excision (TME) for low-lying rectal cancer, has been popularized. This study assessed the long-term oncologic and functional outcomes after sphincter-preserving resection combined... Read more

    Repeat thermal ablation for local progression of lung tumours: how safe and efficacious is it?

    Henry Zhao, Satomi Okano, Anita Pelecanos, Karin Steinke

    Aim: To retrospectively evaluate the safety and efficacy of repeat thermal ablation for local progression of lung tumours after prior ablation(s). Methods: From December 2009 to March 2017, 13 patients underwent repeat ablation [11 repeat microwave ablations and 2 repeat radiofrequency ablations]... Read more
