The European Association for Endoscopic Surgery clinical practice guideline on the pneumoperitoneum for laparoscopic surgery
TLDR
It is recommended to use the lowest intraabdominal pressure allowing adequate exposure of the operative field, rather than using a routine pressure, and abdominal wall lifting combined with low-pressure pneumoperitoneum might be an alternative. Expand
Inflammatory response after laparoscopic and conventional colorectal resections – results of a prospective randomized trial
TLDR
The less intense inflammatory response may be an indicator of the milder surgical trauma inflicted by laparoscopic than conventional colorectal resection. Expand
Cellular and humoral inflammatory response after laparoscopic and conventional colorectal resections
TLDR
Postoperative cell-mediated immunity was better preserved after laparoscopic than after conventional colorectal resection, especially in patients with malignant disease. Expand
Adjuvant postoperative radiation therapy after curative resection of squamous cell carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus: A prospective randomized study
TLDR
It is believed that postoperative radiation therapy alone cannot be advocated as a adjuvant therapy following curative resection of squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. Expand
Pneumoperitoneum with carbon dioxide stimulates growth of malignant colonic cells.
TLDR
The insufflation of carbon dioxide promotes tumor growth compared with helium and control in a rat model, and alternative gases should be recommended in laparoscopic surgery for malignant diseases. Expand
Quality of life following resection of oesophageal carcinoma
TLDR
Quality of life following resection of oesophageal carcinoma was assessed by patients using the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire and by a psychologist using the Spitzer Index, and quality of life was assessed as being higher by the external observer. Expand
[Gastrointestinal quality of life after duodenopancreatectomy in pancreatic carcinoma. Preliminary results of a prospective randomized study: pancreatoduodenectomy or pylorus-preserving
TLDR
Patients with cancer of the head of the pancreas and the periampullary region undergoing the pylorus-preserving duodenopancreatectomy seem to be associated with a better postoperative gastrointestinal quality of life than PD. Expand
The influence of laparotomy and laparoscopy on tumor growth in a rat model
TLDR
Insufflation of air and CO2 promote tumor growth in vitro and in vivo, intraperitoneal tumor growth seems to be promoted primarily by intra peritoneal air and subcutaneous tumor growth by CO2. Expand
Surgical Treatment of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Upside-down Stomach Using the Da Vinci® Robotic System. A Prospective Study
TLDR
The Da Vinci® Intuitive Surgical robotic system for antireflux surgery is safe and it seems to be superior to traditional laparoscopy during dissection in the esophageal hiatus region, which compensates long setup- and operating times. Expand
Laparoscopic resection of colon Cancer: Consensus of the European Association of Endoscopic Surgery (EAES)
TLDR
Laparoscopic resection of colon cancer is a safe and feasible procedure that improves short-term outcome and results regarding the long-term survival of patients enrolled in large multicenter trials will determine its role in general surgery. Expand
