BACKGROUND Single-incision laparoscopy (SIL) has been developed to reduce surgical trauma, whereas technical difficulties in bleeding control limit the broad acceptance for hepatectomy. A novel minimized invasive strategy combining inline radiofrequency pre-coagulation and transumbilical SIL is presented herein. METHODS A cohort of 21 selected patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the wound complication rate in patients undergoing transumbilical single-incision laparoscopic (SIL) surgery. BACKGROUND SIL surgery claims to be less invasive than conventional laparoscopy. Small SIL series have raised concerns toward a higher wound complication rate related to the transumbilical incision. METHODS In a 44-month(More)
Single incision laparoscopy (SIL) has become an emerging technology aiming at a further reduction of abdominal wall trauma in minimally invasive surgery. Available data is encouraging for the safe application of standardized SIL in a wide range of procedures in gastroenterology and hepatology. Compared to technically simple SIL procedures, the merit of SIL(More)
Unter der Annahme, dass moderne Kunststoffnetze in der Hernienchirurgie nach ihrer Implantation um bis zu 40% ihrer Ausgangsgröße schrumpfen, werden heutzutage überdimensionierte Netze mit einem zirkulären Sicherheitsabstand von ca. 5 cm um den eigentlichen Fasziendefekt implantiert. Bei kritischer Prüfung der bislang publizierten Daten gibt es für dieses(More)
