Laparoscopic Transvaginal Hybrid Anterior Resection: a Prospective Data Collection

2014-07-23 16:11:12 | BioPortfolio


Transvaginal hybrid procedures are of interest as an available NOTES-Procedure for the clinical routine. Few authors have demonstrated the feasibility and safety of such procedures (e.g. cholecystectomy) in selected patient collectives. In 2008 Lacy at al. published the experience with a transvaginal sigmoidectomy as a first in human report. The aim of this prospective data collection is to evaluate the feasibility and safety of the transvaginal hybrid anterior resection in the clinical routine.

Therefore all patients giving the informed consent to the transvaginal hybrid anterior resection will be included and assessed concerning feasibility to perform the transvaginal approach and complete the operation transvaginally.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the SIGMOID COLON.

Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.

Pathological processes in the SIGMOID COLON region of the large intestine (INTESTINE, LARGE).

Inflammation of a DIVERTICULUM or diverticula.

Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
