INTRODUCTION Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) appendectomy seeks to further minimise the trauma of parietal access of laparoscopic appendectomy. METHODS We present our initial experience of 17 cases of SILS appendectomy which were completed using conventional laparoscopic instruments. We utiliesd a single-incision multi-port laparoscopic(More)
BACKGROUND Intraperitoneal onlay mesh repair is an established modality to treat large ventral hernias. Various techniques of laying the mesh are utilized. We present the Double Rolling and Center Hitch technique to lay a large intraperitoneal onlay mesh. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study is to devise and adopt a method to reduce the difficulty in(More)
Spigelian hernias, also known as spontaneous lateral ventral hernias, are rare primary ventral hernias arising in the Spigelian, or semilunar, line located at the lateral border of recti. Because of its varied presentation, clinical examination is often inconclusive. Traditional repair of such hernias use the open approach. Herein we report on three cases(More)
PURPOSE The gold standard technique for the repair of groin hernias has always been a controversial issue.

During the course of(More)
With the rise in a number of bariatric procedures, surgeons are facing more complex and technically demanding surgical situations. Robotic digital platforms potentially provide a solution to better address these challenges. This review examines the published literature on the outcomes and complications of bariatric surgery using a robotic platform. Use of(More)
INTRODUCTION There are few case reports of retroperitoneal tumor excision using the robotic technique. We describe a case of a 13 × 9 × 7- cm retroperitoneal schwannoma that was excised using robot-assisted surgery to provide a minimally invasive benefit to the patient. CASE REPORT A 45-year-old woman presented with a right paracaval retroperitoneal lump(More)
A laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be technically challenging with co-existing portal hypertension, as commonly seen with cirrhosis of the liver. Extra hepatic portal vein obstruction (EHPVO) although less common, is a significant cause of portal hypertension in India. EHPVO has a unique clinical profile, which differentiates it from portal hypertension(More)
