The current is a retrospective study about the experience of a group(More)
Splenectomy in childhood is nearly always related to hematologic disorders such as hereditary spherocytosis, immune thrombocytopenic purpura, sickle cell anemia and others. In recent years, laparoscopic splenectomy evolved into a safe and effective procedure that requires less hospital stay, and benefits the patient with a best postoperative period and(More)
The treatment of the intestinal malrotation with or without midgut volvulus with the Ladd procedure for laparoscopic way has been proposed by several authors since 1995. We carry out this treatment in a patient of 15 days old with intestinal malrotation and midgut volvulus. After clinical and radiologic diagnosis, the procedure consisted in the careful(More)
OBJECTIVES The use of magnets in transumbilical cholecystectomy (TUC) improves triangulation and achieves an optimal critical view. Nonetheless, the tendency of the magnets to collide hinders the process. In order to simplify the surgical technique, we developed a hybrid model with a single magnet and a curved grasper. PATIENTS AND METHODS All TUCs(More)
OBJECTIVES The use of magnets in transumbilical cholecystectomy improves triangulation and achieves optimal critical view. However, the attraction between magnets can cause collisions and their management complicates the procedure, and this will become more important in children. In order to simplify the technique, we have developed a hybrid model with a(More)
