PURPOSE The contrast in dose distribution between proton radiotherapy (RT) and intensity-modulated RT (IMRT) is unclear, particularly in regard to critical structures such as the rectum and bladder. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between August and November 2006, the first 10 consecutive patients treated in our Phase II low-risk prostate proton protocol(More)
This is a case study of a 29-year-old nulliparous woman with a bicornuate uterus who had a poor obstetric history in whom we performed a laparoscopic metroplasty. She was advised to use barrier contraception for 3 months. A repeat hystero-laparoscopy performed 3 months later revealed a single large uniform uterine cavity without any adhesions. The patient(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess whether it is possible for an experienced laparoscopic surgeon to perform efficient laparoscopic myomectomy regardless of the size, number, and location of the myomas. DESIGN Prospective observational study (Canadian Task Force classification II-1). SETTING Tertiary endoscopy center. PATIENTS A total of 505 healthy(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility, blood loss, length of surgery, mean hospital stay, and complications of enucleation of a myoma by morcellation while it is still attached to the uterus and to compare the technique with the standard technique of laparoscopic myomectomy. DESIGN Randomized study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). (More)
We compared the feasibility, blood loss, duration of surgery, and complications between patients in whom both uterine arteries were sutured at the beginning of total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) and patients in whom suturing was done after cornual pedicles. Using a prospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2) at a dedicated high-volume(More)
AIM In this review, we assessed the feasibility of total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) in cases of very large uteri weighing more than 500 grams. We have analyzed whether it is possible for an experienced laparoscopic surgeon to perform efficient total laparoscopic hysterectomy for large myomatous uteri regardless of the size, number and location of the(More)
A 27-year-old nulliparous woman presented with pain in the lower abdomen for six months. She was diagnosed to have bilateral dermoid cysts. Ovarian dermoid tumors can be bilateral in up to 15% of cases. After laparoscopy, we found that she had 7 dermoid cysts on the left side and 2 dermoid cysts on the right side, which is a rare occurrence. All the dermoid(More)
Vault dehiscence and evisceration of peritoneal contents is a rare complication following total hysterectomy. A 43-yearold lady presented with history of something soft coming out per vaginum. She underwent total laparoscopic hysterectomy 2 months back for 16-week fibroid uterus. The surgery was uneventful, vaginal vault was sutured laparoscopically with no(More)
We report on 2 cases of multiple leiomyomas arising in the pelvis after laparoscopic hysterectomy. One patient underwent laparoscopic myomectomy at 41 years of age and subsequently had a total laparoscopic hysterectomy for myomas 4 years later. Three years post-hysterectomy, she presented with pelvic masses that were removed laparoscopically and were(More)
