We have examined the anatomy of the pelvic (inferior hypogastric) plexus in six male cadavers, paying particular attention to gross anatomical landmarks that might aid in locating it and have used immunohistochemistry to study the small branches of the plexus that supply the prostate gland. The pelvic plexus was found two finger breadths lateral to the(More)
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has become a mainstream procedure in the management of obesity. Staple line leak is a challenging complication. We report a unique case of successfully treated leak after sleeve gastrectomy, presented ex novo 4 years later as a gastro-cutaneous fistula (GCF). Nothing similar was found in the literature. A 31-year-old(More)
Esophageal cancer has a poor prognosis, with little improvement in outcomes in recent years. Surgery maintains its pivotal role in cure, but this involves two or three compartment dissection with associated high risks. Chiefly, pulmonary complications following surgery are most common, and can be life-threatening. As a consequence, minimally invasive and(More)
BACKGROUND Bariatric gastric bypass surgery is being increasingly performed, but endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in these patients poses a unique challenge because of a lack of per-oral access to the stomach. Small series suggest a higher technical success rate using laparoscopy-assisted ERCP (LA-ERCP) than with an enteroscopic(More)
A 51 year old woman presented with a two day history of odynophagia, followed by two days of vomiting after eating solids and subsequently also after drinking liquids. These symptoms were not accompanied by dysphagia, reflux symptoms, or change in bowel habit. A laparoscopic gastric band insertion eight years earlier had resulted in 10 kg weight loss.(More)
Common day case laparoscopic procedures are usually safe, with low rates of bleeding complications. At our trust, most patients undergo pre-operative group and save (G&S) for these procedures, at a cost of £18.39 per sample excluding laboratory staffing costs. Our aim was to assess if routine G&S is indicated. We performed a retrospective review of all(More)
BACKGROUND Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) are the most common bariatric procedures undertaken globally but there are no evidenced-based criteria that inform the selection of one operation over the other. The purpose of this study was thus to compare weight loss outcomes between RYGBP and SG, and to define patient factors(More)
BACKGROUND Despite advances in imaging techniques, peritoneal and/or metastatic disease have been identified by staging laparoscopy in up to 50 % of patients with a negative preoperative imaging. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been recently shown as a prognostic factor in gastric and esophageal cancers. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the(More)
