Traction procedures are useful to preserve the child's own esophagus in long-gap forms of esophageal atresia. To date, it remains unclear what suture size or position of the traction sutures is optimal to account for differences in anatomy and to reduce the risk of traction sutures being torn out of the esophageal tissue.

Anastomotic tension has repeatedly been associated to anastomotic leakages following esophagectomy for cancer or esophageal atresia repair. We therefore aimed to determine which anastomotic technique ...
Functional and technical operability has to be evaluated and defined prior to thoracic surgical procedures. Sometimes patients assigned to thoracic surgery procedures have to be declared inoperable du...
Femoral lengthening is performed by distraction osteogenesis via lengthening over a nail (LON) or by using a magnetic lengthening nail (MLN). MLN avoids the complications of external fixation while pr...
Esophageal stent was used to treat the esophageal diseases, such as leaks, fistula, malignant strictures . The stent migration rate is as high as 26.9% . Several techniques have been used to fix sten...
Although colonoscopy was originally a diagnostic imaging procedure, it has now expanded to include an increasing range of therapeutic interventions. These procedures require precise maneuvers of instr...
To determine patient outcomes (survival, additional endoscopic or surgical procedures) with an endoscopic suturing technique at predetermined intervals compared to historical controls when...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, technical feasibility, and initial effectiveness (i.e., weight loss primarily measured as percent excess weight loss) of TGVR performed...
To compare the performance of surgical suturing using Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System and conventional Laparoscopic surgical suturing among novice
The objective of this feasibility trial is to evaluate the Ethicon Endo-Surgery Endoscopic Suturing System (ESS) for tissue apposition and reduction of the size of a dilated GJ anastomosis...
To date, optimal strategies for the management of patients with Cervical Radiculopathy (CR) remain elusive. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of manual therapy, exercise...
The pull on a limb or a part thereof. Skin traction (indirect traction) is applied by using a bandage to pull on the skin and fascia where light traction is required. Skeletal traction (direct traction), however, uses pins or wires inserted through bone and is attached to weights, pulleys, and ropes.

Extraoral devices for applying force to the dentition in order to avoid some of the problems in anchorage control met with in intermaxillary traction and to apply force in directions not otherwise possible.
The maintenance of certain aspects of the environment within a defined space to facilitate the function of that space; aspects controlled include air temperature and motion, radiant heat level, moisture, and concentration of pollutants such as dust, microorganisms, and gases.

Removal of the fetus from the uterus or vagina at or near the end of pregnancy with a metal traction cup that is attached to the fetus' head. Negative pressure is applied and traction is made on a chain passed through the suction tube. (From Stedman, 26th ed & Dorland, 28th ed)
Increase in the longest dimension of a bone to correct anatomical deficiencies, congenital, traumatic, or as a result of disease. The lengthening is not restricted to long bones. The usual surgical methods are internal fixation and distraction.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the tissue lining the esophagus—the muscular tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth to the stomach—is replaced by tissue that is similar to the intestinal lining. This process is ca...
