BACKGROUND We performed a prospective pilot study of robotic-assisted laparoscopic transanal proctectomy with total mesorectal excision for the surgical treatment of rectal cancer. This study was to assess the feasibility and safety of robotic-assisted laparoscopic transanal total mesorectal excision. TECHNIQUE All patients underwent robotic-assisted(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to help in the diagnosis of a teratoma in the gluteus maximus region. As far as we know no case of this kind of tumour has been investigated with MRI examination. L'imagerie par résonance magnétique (IRM) a été utilisée pour aider au diagnostic d'une tuméfaction palpable au niveau du muscle grand fessier. La biopsie(More)
Anterior resection with total mesorectal excision is the standard method of rectal cancer resection. However, this procedure remains technically difficult in mid and low rectal cancer. A robotic transanal proctectomy with total mesorectal excision and laparoscopic assistance is reported in a 57 year old male with BMI 32 kg/m2 and rectal adenocarcinoma(More)
BACKGROUND There is scanty experience concerning robot-assisted Ivor-Lewis oesophagectomy, so every new experience is helpful. METHODS We describe the techniques and short-term results of Ivor-Lewis oesophagectomy using a laparoscopic approach and robot-assisted thoracoscopy, and an observational study of prospective surveillance of the first 14 patients(More)

A robotic transanal proctectomy with total mesorectal excision and laparoscopic assistance is reported in a 57 year old male with BMI 32 kg/m and rectal adenocarcinoma T2N1M0(More)
We reviewed the records of patients with genitourinary tumors that had been diagnosed and treated at the Section of Pediatric Surgery of Marqués de Valdecilla Hospital from 1974 to 1990. There were 14 such tumors. Of these, 12 (85.7%) were Wilm's tumor. This tumor type is the subject of the present study. Regarding its clinical features, 33.3% of the cases(More)
OBJECTIVES An uncommon case of prostatic carcinoma presenting as rectal hemorrhage is described. The diagnostic and therapeutic aspects are discussed and the importance of distinguishing this condition from rectal carcinoma is underscored. METHODS/RESULTS The clinical features of a patient with invasive prostatic carcinoma presenting as rectal hemorrhage(More)
