Using a Functional Lumen Imaging Probe to Assess the Effect of Variable Myotomy Length During Poem and Heller

Ezra N Teitelbaum, MD, Nathaniel J Soper, MD, Eric S Hungness, MD. Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. This video demonstrates the use of a functional lumen imaging probe (FLIP) to evaluate esophagogastric junction (EGJ) distensibility in real-time during operations for achalasia. FLIP is additionally used to test the physiologic effect of variable myotomy length […]

Management of severe stricture after sleeve gastrectomy: conversion to bypass

Raquel Gonzalez-Heredia, MD, PhD, Mario Masrur, MD, Enrique Elli, MD, FACS. University of Illinois at Chicago. Failure of the sleeve gastrectomy is frequently due to weight recidivism, intractable reflux, strictures, fistulas and malnutrition. One of the challenging situation is presented when sleeve is asociated to stenosis resulting to intractable reflux. Robotic technology way offer technical […]

Robotic Assisted Total Pancreatectomy and Autologous Islet Cell Transplantation: Potential Benefits of a Novel Technique

Amer H Zureikat, MD, Trang Nguyen, MD, David Bartlett, MD, Martin Wijkstrom, MD, Herbert Zeh, III, MD, Abhinav Humar, MD. University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Reducing warm ischemic time can optimize islet cell yield in pancreatic islet cell autotransplantation following total pancreatectomy. Performing a total pancreatectomy without division of the pancreatic neck may also potentially […]
