INTRODUCTION This study is aimed at identifying important risk factors associated with conversion of laparoscopic colorectal surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is usually associated with less operative trauma, more favourable post-operative course and lower morbidity than open surgery. However, conversion is connected with some risks according to some authors.(More)
INTRODUCTION Hand-assisted laparoscopic liver surgery, a newly developed technique based on an innovative concept, has proved useful and safe for a variety of less invasive hepatectomies. Radiofrequency-assisted hepatic resection has been reported to be safe, associated with minimal morbidity and mortality and decreased intraoperative blood loss and(More)
INTRODUCTION The liver is the most common site of colorectal metastases (colorectal liver metastases - CLM). Surgical treatment in combination with oncological therapy is the only potentially curative method. Unfortunately, only 10-25% of patients are suitable for surgery. Traditionally, open liver resection (OLR) is usually performed. However, laparoscopic(More)
Laparoscopic surgery has become a frequently used modality for rectal tumour surgery. A fistula between the rectum and lower urinary tract is one of the possible complications, with rectovesical fistulas occurring most frequently. This case report presents a 66-year-old man who underwent a laparoscopic low-anterior resection of the rectum due to the(More)
Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome (SRUS) is an uncommon chronic disorder with a wide range of endoscopic findings, clinical presentations and characteristic histopathological features. There is no clear consensus regarding SRUS management, because of its poorly understood pathogenesis and frequent association with various pelvic floor disorders. Laparoscopic(More)
Carcinoids are a heterogeneous group of neuroendocrine tumours. Duodenal localization is associated with relatively benign behaviour of the tumour, slow progression, low metastatic potential, and absence of endocrine activity. Type and extent of surgery depend on size and staging of the tumour. In this article, we present a case study of a 27-year-old(More)
This study proceeds from the database of two patient groups. Patients in first group underwent intraabdominal anastomotic operation technique and they come from a selected hospital in USA. Patients in second group underwent extraabdominal anastomotic operation technique and they come from the Clinic of Surgery at the University Hospital Ostrava (Czech(More)
INTRODUCTION Long-term results after laparoscopic surgery with conversion to open surgery for colorectal cancer are seldom published. AIM The study analysed the impact of conversion of laparoscopic surgery to open resection for colorectal cancer on short- and long-term results. MATERIAL AND METHODS The prospectively collected data of 469 patients with(More)
