BACKGROUND: The methodology of Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) has been validated in both human and animal models. Herein is a discussion of our experience gained from the init...
BACKGROUND: Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery peritoneoscopy may be able to replace laparoscopic peritoneoscopy (LAP) for staging of GI malignancies if it is proven to be equally accurat...
Abdominal adhesions are associated with increased postoperative complications, cost and workload. We performed a systematic review with statistical pooling to estimate the formation rate, distribution...
BACKGROUND: Recently, natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery has emerged with new ideas of a transgastric access. The authors have evaluated the possibility of transgastric bowel resection wi...
Adhesions occur with a high incidence after intra-abdominal surgery but can also develop due to infections, radiation or for idiopathic reasons. The formation of adhesions is initiated by tissue damag...
