PURPOSE Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is usually performed under the general anesthesia (GA). Aim of the study is to investigate the availability, safety and side effects of combined spinal/epidural anesthesia (CSEA) and comparison it with GA for LC. METHODS Forty-nine patients who have a LC plan were included into the study. The patients were(More)
PURPOSE The 2-port laparoscopic appendectomy technique (TLA) is between the conventional 3-port and single-port laparoscopic appendectomy surgeries. We compared postoperative pain and cosmetic results after TLA with conventional laparoscopic appendectomy (CLA) by a 3-port device. METHODS Patients undergoing TLA were matched with patients undergoing CLA(More)
INTRODUCTION During single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC), the gallbladder is suspended with stitches, resulting in perforation risk and difficulty in exploration. AIM We used the needle grasper in SILC to hang and manipulate the gallbladder. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty-five patients (43 female, 22 male) who underwent SILC between December(More)
INTRODUCTION The two-port laparoscopic appendectomy technique (TPLA) lays between the conventional three-port trocar procedure and single-port laparoscopic appendectomy surgery. During TPLA, the appendix is suspended with stitches, resulting in perforation risk and difficulty in exploration. AIM We used a needle grasper in TPLA to hang and manipulate the(More)
PURPOSE Laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) is routinely performed under general, not regional anesthesia. This study assessed the feasibility, efficacy, and side effects of combined spinal-epidural anesthesia (CSEA) in LA. METHODS Thirty-three American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) physical status classification grade I patients underwent LA under CSEA.(More)
INTRODUCTION There is increasing interest in sedation for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGE). Prospective randomized studies comparing sedation properties and complications of propofol and midazolam/meperidine in upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGE) are few. AIM To compare propofol and midazolam/meperidine sedation for UGE in terms of(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic cholecystectomies (LC) are generally performed in a 12 mmHg-pressured pneumoperitoneum in a slight sitting position. Considerable thromboembolism risk arises in this operation due to pneumoperitoneum, operation position and risk factors of patients. We aim to investigate the effect of pneumoperitoneum pressure on coagulation and(More)
