BACKGROUND We report our experience at The Ottawa Hospital with outpatient laparoscopic adrenalectomy. METHODS We report a single surgeon experience. Seventeen consecutive outpatient laparoscopic adrenalectomy were performed between 1994 and 2006. Specific selection criteria were applied. Postoperatively patients were monitored and assessed before(More)
Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer with approximately half of the patients developing liver metastases during the course of their disease. Modern multimodal therapies have improved the overall survival. Liver resection remains the most important modality in the treatment of colorectal liver metastases. The evolution of the(More)
BACKGROUND Mucinous cystic neoplasms of the liver (hepatobiliary cystadenomas) are rare neoplastic lesions. Such cysts are often incorrectly diagnosed and managed, and carry a risk of malignancy. The objective of this study was to review the surgical experience with these lesions over 15 years. METHODS A retrospective chart review identified consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND The resectability of colorectal liver metastases is in part largely based on the surgeon's assessment of cross-sectional imaging. This process, while guided by principles, is subjective. The objective of the present study was to assess agreement between hepatic surgeons regarding the resectability of colorectal liver metastases. METHODS(More)
Intranuclear rodlets (INRs) are rod-shaped intranuclear bodies of unknown function present in the nuclei of pancreatic beta cells. Previous studies have demonstrated a significant depletion of INRs from beta cells in mouse models of type II diabetes, suggesting that they may have pathological significance. The objective of the present study was to determine(More)
INTRODUCTION Boerhaave's syndrome is defined as the spontaneous perforation of the esophagus. Although it has been reported in association with different gastrointestinal pathologies, there are no previous reports in association with an incarcerated inguinal hernia containing ischemic small bowel. PRESENTATION OF CASE We present an unusual case of a(More)
Laparoscopic greater curvature plication (LGCP) is relatively a new procedure. We report a novel complication of obstructive jaundice in a 24-year-old patient post LGCP. This was secondary to gastric mucosa prolapse with obstruction of the ampulla of Vater. A literature review revealed no previous reports of similar complication.
Dynamic Optical Arbitrary Waveform Generation (O-AWG) in a Continuous Fiber 2008 We present a low-loss dynamic waveform shaping technique for high-repetition-rate signals by independent phase and amplitude control of spectral lines in a continuous fiber. Our system employs uniform FBGs to separate the spectral lines of a modulated CW signal, and provides(More)
