Endoscopic Harvesting of the Gracilis Muscle – Experimental Study in a Swine Model

Aim: The gracilis muscle is one of the most frequent used free flaps in reconstructive surgery. In reconstructive surgery, endoscopic muscle flap harvesting allows a minimal invasive approach of the donor sites, leading to lesser immediate and late post-operative complications, reduced local morbidity and faster healing. The present study aims in establishing the experimental model… Continue Reading »

Lower Levels of Occasional Blood Glucose in Patients with Billroth I Reconstruction After Not Vagus Nerve-spared Laparoscoy-Assisted Distal Gastrectomy.

(1) objective of this studyPrevious reports have suggested that patients with early gastric cancer have a favorable prognosis after laparoscopic surgery. Vagus nerve-sparing laroscopically assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) is a good indication for early gastric cancer concerning function preserved surgery as well as dissecting proper lymph node levels. However, the functional outcome remains unclear. We… Continue Reading »

Surgeon Impressions and Technical Difficulty Associated with Laparo-endoscopic Single-site Surgery (less): A Sages Learning Center Study

Introduction: Interest in Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site Surgery (LESS) is rapidly growing amongst surgeons. The purpose of this study was to characterize current surgeon impressions about LESS and to determine the relative difficulty of performing a simulated LESS task.Methods: This study was conducted at the 2009 SAGES Learning Center. Participants (n=56) were asked to complete pre-test and… Continue Reading »
