BACKGROUND Adhesion formation after peritoneal surgery is the main cause of postoperative bowel obstruction, infertility, and chronic pelvic pain. In this study, we evaluated the effect of oral ellagic acid on intra-abdominal adhesions caused by gallstones in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-one Wistar-albino rats were used. Gallstones were dropped to the right lower quadrant of the abdomen to create adhesions. They were divided into 4 groups; sham-operated, intraperitoneal gallstone, oral ella...
Introduction null Anastomotic leak (AL) after right hemicolectomy remains a significant clinical challenge with an incidence of 4.2% to 8.2% in European series. Near infrared imaging with indocyanine green (NIR-ICG) allows real-time assessment of bowel perfusion. However, there is a lack of published data assessing the clinical utility of this new technology in right sided colonic resection. null Materials and methods null Data from electronic records were retrospectively analyzed for consecutiv...

BACKGROUND Meta-analysis has shown the effectiveness of various training methods for the acquisition of laparoscopic skills in surgical training. However, there is very limited literature focusing on the translation of skill acquisition on training models into improved operating room (OR) performance. This study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the Tuebingen trainer with integrated Porcine tissue in improving OR the performance of surgical trainees using standard assessment tools. ...

Background null The use of nonradiation endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (NR-ERCP) for choledocholithiasis is still limited. Hereby, we introduced our experience of digital cholangioscopy (DCS)-assisted NR-ERCP for retrieval of common bile duct stones. null Methods null Altogether, data of 132 patients who underwent DCS-assisted NR-ERCP for choledocholithiasis were collected. Procedure details, complications, and short-term follow-up were reviewed and analyzed and were compared wit...

BACKGROUND For minimally invasive colorectal surgery, preoperative localization is a typical procedure. We here aimed to analyze compared 2 different localization methods in terms of short-term outcomes, like the operative outcome and postoperative complication rates based on real-world data. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective analysis study conducted at a medical center. We enrolled patients who were presented with colonic tumor between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2019, and th...
Background null There are many laparoscopic techniques for pediatric congenital inguinal hernia repair. Needlescopic surgery was introduced recently in pediatric patients aiming at getting excellent cosmetic outcomes. null Purpose null The aim of this study was to describe a novel technique for needlescopic inguinal hernia repair in children. null Patients and methods null Needlescopic division of the hernial sac was carried out on 369 children in 6 pediatric tertiary centers during the period f...

BACKGROUND: Minimal invasive laparoscopic resection of liver tumors is less traumatic compared with open surgical resection and may be a better option for many patients. However, localization of intrahepatic tumors remains a challenge. Availability of hybrid operating rooms, equipped for high performance radiologic imaging, allows for new methods of surgical navigation. METHODS: Twelve patients planned for laparoscopic resection of liver tumors were included. Before resection started, tumors wer...
