    Eduardo Turiani Hourneaux de Moura , Eduardo Guimarães Hourneaux de Moura
    Achalasia is a primary esophageal disorderth variable causes, with an incidence between 0.03 to 1/100,000 people, and prevalence of approximately 10/100,000, with no difference between gender. It is more frequent in South and Central America, where Chagas disease is endemic. There are several methods to treat achalasia including endoscopic and surgical procedures, however, all of these methods are palliative.

    Aim: To investigate the short-term outcomes of laparoscopic colorectal resection compared with open surgery in psychiatric patients with colorectal cancer. Methods: The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 31 consecutive patients who underwent open surgery (OS) or laparoscopic surgery (LS) for colorectal cancer between April 2013 and September 2015. All patients were involuntarily admitted to the hospital, because of anosodiaphoria. The clinicopathological characteristics, intraoperative outcomes, and postoperative data of the two groups were analyzed. Categorical data... Read more

    Eduardo Crema , Júverson Alves Terra Júnior , Guilherme Azevedo Terra , Celso Junior de Oliveira Teles , Alex Augusto da Silva
    Aim: The advent of minimally invasive abdominal and thoracic surgeries has led to a meaningful reduction in complication and mortality rates among patients undergoing esophagectomy, especially when used for the treatment of benign diseases such as megaesophagus. Methods: Two hundred thirty-one patients, 152 (65.8%) men and 79 (34.2%) women, with a mean age of 52.46 (19-80) years, were treated for advanced megaesophagus between September 1996 and October 2016. Two hundred ten patients (90.91%) had chagasic megaesophagus and 21 patients (9.09%) had idiopathic megaesophagus. Results: Immediate... Read more
