The practice of surgical techniques is constantly improving and evolving. In the last two decades, minimally invasive surgery has gained widespread acceptance. Virtually all procedures can now be performed laparoscopically. This trend not only provides better cosmesis, but offers decreased recovery times as well. The initial trend from open to laparoscopic(More)
We have seen substantial changes in minimally invasive surgery since its development in the early 1900s. Over the past 10 years, the addition of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery and robotics has turned our attention to improved cosmesis and advancements in instrumentation. We have developed a new technique-single port access (SPA) surgery-and(More)
Single-port surgery has seen almost as rapid an application as multiport laparoscopy during the early 1990s. Hopefully, we will learn from our predecessors to apply the dictums of safety and science as we move forward with this new technique to ensure adequate adoption and successful outcomes with limited errors and concerns along the way.
OBJECTIVE To describe the Single port access (SPA) laparoscopic entry technique for canine ovariectomy (OVE), report complications, and outcomes. STUDY DESIGN Pilot study. ANIMALS Intact female dogs (n = 6). METHODS With owner consent, 6 intact female dogs had SPA laparoscopic OVE. Data, including signalment, surgical time (from incision to completion(More)
Ten patients are presented in whom a continent ileostomy (internal ileal reservoir or Kock Pouch) was constructed. The series is unique in that it includes the first such ileostomy successfully constructed in this country. The other 9 patients, for a variety of reasons, sought conversion from a standard ileostomy with an external appliance, to a continent(More)
