We aimed to assess the value of early laparoscopic therapy in management of tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) or pelvic abscess.
More than 10,000 appendectomies are performed every year in Switzerland. The aim of this study was to investigate the treatment strategy for appendicitis among Swiss surgeons with particular interest ...
The spleen is the most common abdominal site for systemic septic emboli that often complicate infective endocarditis. Management of an embolic splenic abscess usually involves surgical splenectomy or ...
Primary appendiceal cancer with fistula formation is extremely rare. We report a case of a patient with appendiceal cancer invading the ileum who underwent successful laparoscopic ileocecal resection.
The PeriAPPAC trial is a prospective randomised study comparing interval laparoscopic appendectomy with follow-up MRI in patients with initially successfully treated periappendicular absce...
The treatment of the acute phase of the complicated abscess tubo-ovarian relies on antibiotics more or less associated with surgical management in case of visible abscess, poor clinical to...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the disease control rate of subjects with metastatic appendiceal cancer for whom initial fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy has failed. Based on p...
The purpose of this study on adolescents between 13 and 18 years of age with morbid obesity is to determine whether surgical treatment gives more health benefits than standard conservative...
The investigators propose a study to compare two methods of closing the stump of the appendix during an emergency excision of the appendix using a keyhole approach. One similarly designed ...
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
Work consisting of written or printed communication between individuals or between persons and representatives of corporate bodies. The correspondence may be personal or professional.

Therapeutic approaches that are limited, gradual, or well-established as opposed to radical methods.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
