Gall bladder cancer (GBC) is the most common and aggressive malignancy of the biliary tract with extremely poor prognosis. Radical resection remains the only potential curative treatment for operable lesions. Although laparoscopic approach is now considered as standard of care for many gastrointestinal malignancies, surgical community is still reluctant to(More)
With technological innovations especially newer parenchymal transection devices, improved understanding of hepatic anatomy facilitated by better imaging, and reconstructions along with experiences gained from advanced minimal invasive procedures, laparoscopic liver surgery is gaining momentum with more than 5300 reported cases worldwide. Most of the(More)
In the current era of technological advancement, the feasibility of laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy has been established. However, major venous resection and reconstruction along with laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy is still considered a complex procedure. A 47-year-old woman presented with obstructive jaundice secondary to carcinoma in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Surgery has the potential to remove the entire hydatid cyst and can lead to complete cure. Presence of hydatid cysts in multiple abdominal organs imposes special challenges for laparoscopic management. The patient position and port placement for one organ may not be adequate for other and proper exposure in hydatid cyst is of paramount(More)
Median arcuate ligament (MAL) syndrome is an uncommon condition caused by the external compression of the celiac trunk by the median arcuate ligament. In the current era of technological advancement, this syndrome may be corrected through the laparoscopic approach. We report two patients who were diagnosed as MAL syndrome and underwent laparoscopic division(More)
Epiphrenic divericula are uncommon disorders of the lower oesophagus, which are symptomatic in only 15-20% of cases. The optimum treatment modality for such cases remains an oesophageal diverticulectomy with long myotomy with or without an antireflux operation. Recently, this is increasingly being done through the laparoscopic approach. Here we describe the(More)
INTRODUCTION As our experience with laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) surgeries increased, we considered how it might be employed if two or more surgeries were to be combined. LESS surgeries' cosmetic advantages, decreased parietal trauma and better patient satisfaction relative to standard multiport laparoscopy have been previously reported, but its(More)
Although minimally invasive surgery has evolved in every field of surgery, its use in vascular surgery is limited to major vessel diseases only. A 23-year-old female presented with a cystic lesion in the distal body and the tail of the pancreas. Triphasic computed tomography (CT) abdomen revealed a 4.5 cm × 3.2 cm-sized mass with calcifications. A diagnosis(More)
Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy stricture is a substantial problem that develops in 10%-30% of patients and requires frequent intervention. Although endoscopic/percutaneous approaches are preferred, especially for refractory stricture, open surgical reconstruction remains the gold standard. However, such an operation may be highly challenging. The recently(More)
The concept of complete mesocolic excision (CME) with central vascular ligation (CVL) for treatment of right colon cancer evolved over last one decade. It decreases local recurrences and improves the survival rates. We describe our novel technique which involves first posterior sharp dissection between planes of parietal and visceral fascia of mesocolon(More)
