Although several studies have shown that laparoscopic resection is safe and feasible in bowel endometriosis, limited data are available on the specific treatment for endometriosis of the rectum. The aim of this study is to describe operative and postoperative outcomes after laparoscopic resection of the mid/low rectum for endometriosis. Between 2002 and(More)
Laparoscopic total mesorectal excision for low rectal cancer is not considered a gold standard treatment due to the high conversion rate and the long operation time. A retrospective review examined a surgical series of 174 laparoscopic low rectal resections involving total mesorectal excision (1995–2006), with particular reference to technical points as(More)
Traditional laparoscopic cholecystectomy (TLC) is performed widely; however, single-incision cholecystectomy (SILC) has been proposed as a better and less traumatic procedure. In this prospective, double-blinded, randomized study, patients were randomized to undergo either elective SILC or TLC. The primary endpoint was the level of pain after surgery and(More)
Many surgeons have attempted to reduce the number and the size of ports in laparoscopic cholecystectomy to decrease parietal trauma and pain, and to improve cosmetic results. We report a series of laparoscopic cholecystectomies using a single-port technique (SILS) through an umbilical incision in a pilot group of 21 cases. Our goal was to validate and(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic bowel resections for endometriosis are safe and effective but only short-term follow-up has been evaluated. In the present study long-term outcome in terms of intestinal and urinary function, fertility, chronic pain, and recurrence was assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2002 to December 2010 nine hundred patients(More)
Out of a series of 50 infants suffering from oesophageal atresia, muscular-skeletal anomalies were found in 17 of them (34%), and in 15 of these the vertebral column was abnormal (30%). 5 (10%) were affected by V.A.T.E.R. syndrome. The most frequent vertebral anomaly was characterised by isolated thoracic hypersegmentation, which was found to be regularly(More)
Bowel obstruction is a rare complication of intestinal endometriosis. The aim of this work was to evaluate outcomes after colorectal resection for bowel obstruction due to endometriosis. Of 720 patients who underwent colorectal resection for bowel endometriosis, 12 (1.7 %) presented with bowel obstruction. Preoperative work-up, management, perioperative and(More)
