Laparoscopic CBD exploration (LCBDE) is an accepted treatment modality for single stage management of CBD stones in fit patients. A transcholedochal approach is preferred in patients with a dilated CBD and large impacted stones in whom ductal clearance remains problematic. There are very few studies comparing intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) with(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Patients with a dilated common bile duct (CBD) and multiple, primary, or recurrent stones are candidates for choledochoduodenostomy. This article reviews our technique and results of laparoscopic choledochoduodenostomy (LCDD) in patients with CBD stones. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Prospectively maintained data of patients with a dilated CBD(More)
The open technique for the placement of the first trocar in laparoscopic surgery has become the preferred method due to the reduced number of complications associated with it. In 2002 we reported our technique, which has been widely accepted at many centers, including all the units of our hospital. We now report on a series of 6,000 cases in which this(More)
A questionnaire-study was undertaken among 50 women to take note of their views on awareness, information, choices and expectations on various aspects of hysterectomy performed on them. Most women (92%) did not know the type of hysterectomy and none of them was offered the alternative treatment, various types of hysterectomy done, type of anaesthesia used(More)
Common bile duct stones (CBDS) that are seen in the Asian population are very different from those seen in the west. It is not infrequent to see multiple, large, and impacted stones and a hugely dilated CBD. Many of these patients have been managed by open CBD exploration (OCBDE), even after the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), because these(More)
PURPOSE To compare the use of a biliary stent with T-tube for biliary decompression after laparoscopic common bile duct (CBD) exploration. METHODS Between September 2004 and March 2008, 60 patients undergoing laparoscopic CBD exploration for CBD stones were randomized to choledochotomy closure over either a biliary stent or a T-tube after CBD clearance.(More)
BACKGROUND Giant duodenal ulcer (GDU) perforation remains an extremely uncommon but a rather challenging condition to manage wherein routine surgical procedures are fraught with an extremely high incidence of failure and mortality. It therefore follows that this condition must be identified and managed differently at laparotomy than are most duodenal(More)
Since the first retroperitoneal laparoscopic pyelolithotomy (RPPL) was reported by Gaur and associates in 1994, its technique has improved considerably. The applicability and indications of the procedure are expanding with advances in technology, expertise, and experience. To date, there has been no prospective study in the literature about the role of(More)
Various methods for the fixing of prosthetic mesh in open inguinal hernia repair are in vogue. We describe a novel way of fixing the mesh in Lichtenstein’s method of hernia repair using tissue glue [gelatin–resorcin–formalin (GRF) glue] and compare it with the traditional method of fixing the mesh using non-absorbable sutures. Eighty patients with(More)
