BACKGROUND Rectosigmoidectomy (RR) with primary anastomosis or pelvic peritonectomy (PP) are often part of an optimal en bloc tumor resection in advanced ovarian cancer (AOC) patients with contiguous extension to or encasement of the reproductive organs, peritoneum of the cul-de-sac and sigmoid colon. We report our experience with two different surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the feasibility of ovarian cyst enucleation by using a laparoendoscopic single-site trocar through a transumbilical access. DESIGN Case reports. SETTING Teaching and research hospital. PATIENT(S) Three patients affected by large ovarian cysts. INTERVENTION(S) Enucleation of three large ovarian cysts by using a laparoendoscopic(More)
This study was designed to compare perioperative outcomes and postoperative pain of standard laparoscopic (S-LPS), minilaparoscopic (M-LPS), and laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) hysterectomy. A single-institutional, matched, retrospective, cohort study was performed. Between May 2010 and March 2011, 85 consecutive women were submitted to a total(More)
We performed laparoscopic myomectomy for treatment of a large, twisted, subserous myoma at 25 weeks of pregnancy in a woman with acute abdominal pain that did not respond to analgesic therapy. There are few reports in literature about laparoscopic management of uterine leiomyoma during the first half of pregnancy that demonstrate its feasibility in selected(More)
OBJECTIVE This prospective randomized pilot study compared the use of the Ligaclip (Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Cincinnati, OH) with bipolar coagulation in preventing lymphoceles after laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy for gynecologic cancer. STUDY DESIGN Thirty patients with gynecologic malignancy, who had laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy were randomly(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the best diagnostic and staging strategy for recurrent ovarian cancer. METHODS The negative predictive value, specificity, positive predictive value, sensitivity, and accuracy rates of the fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positive emission tomography computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) and staging laparoscopy in identifying surgically(More)
Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the second most common genital malignancy in women and is the most lethal gynecological malignancy, with an estimated five-year survival rate of 39%. Despite efforts to develop an effective ovarian cancer screening method, 60% of patients still present with advanced disease. Comprehensive management using surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to evaluate the potential advantages of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) approach with respect to conventional laparoscopy. METHODS Thirty LESS patients were matched 2:1 with a previous cohort of 58 patients undergoing conventional laparoscopy for the same type of surgery (controls). RESULTS Median operative time(More)
To evaluate the safety and feasibility of the new robotic TELELAP ALF-X platform in a heterogeneous series of gynecological procedures. Between September 2013 and May 2014, 146 patients were enrolled in this Phase II study trial. Patients with presumed benign or borderline adnexal disease, and benign and early stage malignant uterine disease were(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate risk factors for the occurrence of postoperative abscesses in a large single-institution series of gynecologic cancer patients undergoing major surgery.
