Analysis of Tissue Damage Caused By Ultrasonically Activated Device for Laparoscopic Surgeries

Introduction: It has been known that ultrasonically activated devices (USAD) cause tissue planes to separate ahead of the blade tip and described as “distal drilling” phenomenon of the device seen during surgeries. “Cavitational bubbles” generated under transient fluctuation of pressure within tissues have been thought to account for this phenomenon. Meanwhile, collapse of cavitation bubbles… Continue Reading »

Totally Laparoscopic Isolated Caudate Hepatectomy with Selective Inflow Control – Case Report

Introduction: Laparoscopic hepatectomy is the latest development of minimally invasive surgery. Traditional indications for laparoscopic hepatectomy include lesions in the anterior-inferior and left lateral aspect of the liver. For lesions in the caudate lobe, the left lateral section of liver frequently interferes the surgical exposure and mandates lateral sectionectomy occasionally in traditional open hepatectomy. In… Continue Reading »

Overcoming Barriers to Development of a Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy Program

Background: Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) is a technically demanding procedure that requires expertise in advanced laparoscopy and esophageal surgery. Widespread implementation has been hindered by high complication rates and the inability to rapidly demonstrate improved outcomes. We hypothesized that safe and effective development of such a program could be performed without the need for additional… Continue Reading »
