Endoscopic Transesophageal Mediastinal and Thoracic Lymph Node Dissection with En Bloc Resection

This video demonstrates a novel, transesophageal endoscopic technique for mediastinal and thoracic lymph node dissection and en bloc lymphadenectomy using a Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES®) technique. Using a swine model, a double-channel gastroscope equipped with an endoscopic cap band mucosectomy device is used to create a small esophageal mucosal defect. Next, a short… Continue Reading »

Identification of Risk Factors for Post-operative Dysphagia After Laparoscopic Primary Anti-reflux Surgery

The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors for persistent post-operative dysphagia at one year after surgery. Methods: All patients undergoing anti-reflux surgery are entered… Continue Reading »

Clinical Outcomes of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (without Energised Dissection) Performed By a Basic Surgical Trainee or a Consultant-double Blind Randomized Control Study

Objective of StudyAvascular anatomical planes guided surgery is an important prerequisite for expeditious & safe procedure. These so called “holy planes” are of help in performing Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). We have earlier reported technique of LC without any energised dissection (ED) and its replication by a higher surgical trainee (HST). The HST had an earlier… Continue Reading »
