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.

Transvaginal hybrid procedures are of interest as an available NOTES procedure for the clinical routine. The gynaecologists` experiences and the available studies report on low morbidity r...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy (by assessing the clinical success of treatment) of intravenous antibiotic therapy with ertapenem in patients with acute attacks of sig...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether laparoscopic lavage changes the rate of severe complications in patients with acute perforated diverticulitis who traditionally are treate...
We propose a phase I study of laparoscopic assisted, transvaginal peritoneoscopy by using flexible endoscopy in female patients with pelvic pain. It is designed as a hybrid procedure with ...
Laparoscopic peritoneal lavage is an alternative to sigmoid resection in Hinchey III diverticulitis (generalized purulent peritonitis). The main limitation of laparoscopic peritoneal lavage is the hig...
A 70-year-old woman presented to our emergency department with recurrent episodes of left lower quadrant pain. She subsequently underwent high anterior resection with working diagnosis of acute divert...
This study aimed to identify the risk factors for postoperative complications after laparoscopic low anterior resection for the treatment of advanced rectal cancers. A prospectively maintained databas...
Patients with perforated diverticulitis suffer high morbidity and mortality. For decades, sigmoid colectomy with colostomy (Hartman's procedure) has been considered the standard surgical management. O...
Double and triple stapling techniques to close the rectal stump in laparoscopic anterior resection are fraught with technical drawbacks that could possibly be avoided with the use of the single stapli...
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.
