BACKGROUND Incorporation of advanced laparoscopic procedures in the practice of institutions without respective experience is a significant impediment in the dissemination of minimally invasive techniques. On-site mentoring programs carry several cost-related and practical constraints. Telementoring has emerged as a practical and cost-effective alternative(More)
INTRODUCTION Laparoscopic techniques have induced a tremendous revolution in the field of general surgery. Recent multicenter trials have demonstrated similar patient-oriented and oncologic outcomes for laparoscopic colon and rectal resections compared with their open counterparts. Meanwhile, robotic technology has gradually entered the field of general(More)
—Refinements of the voltage control algorithm for the DG DemoNet concept have been developed extensively over the last years. Consequently the next step will be field tests prior to the deployment. This paper describes the (redesign n of the existing prototype algorithm, offline and online simulation environments and testing of the implementation to prepare(More)
Eine optimale Funktion der gastroösophagealen Antirefluxbarriere ist von einer anatomischen Überlappung des unteren Ösophagussphinkters und der Zwerchfellschenkel abhängig. Die Wiederherstellung dieser Bedingung ist aktuell nur durch Kombination von Antirefluxeingriffen mit einer Hiatoplastik möglich und erfordert ein laparoskopisches Vorgehen. Neuere(More)
