BACKGROUND A high incidence of anastomotic leakage (37.5%) is reported after low anterior rectal resection (LAR) and circular double-stapled anastomosis without protective ileostoma. Since the pathomechanism of anastomosis leakage is still unclear, a suitable animal model would be most desirable. METHODS The objective was to assess the incidence of(More)
Recent technical development has led to remarkable performances in video-guided surgical procedures. A video-endoscopic system (VES) is evaluated as an alternative magnifying solution for microsurgical procedures and compared to table-top microscopes in terms of technical and surgical aspects. Six surgical residents without microsurgical experience,(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulating evidence shows the potential of bone marrow-derived endothelial colony-forming cells (bmECFCs) as promising tools for vascular repair. However, knowledge about their in vitro expansion, characterization, and functional behavior is still controversial. We demonstrate the in vitro generation of rat bmECFCs and analyze their ability to(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to develop a method for standard laparoscopic access to the pudendal nerve in pigs to implant an electrode for chronic neuromodulation studies. METHODS Using routine laparoscopic surgical techniques, the pudendal nerve was located in 10 female pigs using standardized anatomical landmarks. A tined lead electrode was placed(More)
The aim of this study was to develop an experimental model of pancreas transplantation in rats as a standardized tool for research in transplant immunobiology. Brown Norway (donors) and Lewis (receptors) rats, males, with an average weight of 220 grams, were used. The diabetes was induced in recipients using streptozocin. The pancreas was harvested with a(More)
BACKGROUND Rodent studies suggest that luminal solutions alleviate the mucosal injury and prolong intestinal preservation but concerns exist that excessive volumes of luminal fluid may promote tissue edema. Differences in size, structure, and metabolism between rats and humans require studies in large animals before clinical use. METHODS Intestinal(More)
Colorectal cancer represents the third cause of cancer. Since its detection in due time is important resolution, appropriate monitoring is mandatory. The present study deals with the relationship between colorectal cancer and renal function, as well as other associated risk factors. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) represents a risk factor of cancer, both in(More)
Endoscopic internal mammary artery (IMA) approach represents a well-established procedure in coronary bypass surgery. However, such techniques require highly trained skills that need to be mastered in experimental models before taken into the clinic. To attain such skills, our aim was to develop a training model of thoracoscopic approach for harvesting of(More)
PURPOSE The reported rate of clinically apparent anastomotic leakage (AL) in a low anterior resection of the rectum (LAR) (≤7 cm from the anal verge) using a circular double-stapled anastomosis (CDSA) without defunctioning stoma is up to 37.5 %. Since AL may result in life-threatening peritonitis, sepsis, and multiple organ failure, LAR and CDSA are(More)
