Considerable morbidity (10-14%) and even mortality (4-30%) have been reported after reversal of intestinal continuity following Hartmann's procedure. Feasibility of and advantages in reducing peri- and postoperative morbidity by utilizing single-port techniques through the colostomy site have been suggested before in small case series. The purpose of the present prospective observational study is to evaluate the outcomes of reversal of intestinal continuity using single-port access in a relatively large consecutive cohort.

Name: Surgical endoscopy
To compare chest port (port)-related complication rates between right- and left-sided ports placed in adult oncologic patients with a history of right-sided port removal.
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of three-port laparoscopic right colectomy (3-LRC) for right-sided colon cancer compared with conventional five-port laparoscopic ...
Ventral hernias are common after Hartmann's procedure and add complexity to Hartmann's reversal. Colostomy reversal and abdominal wall reconstruction may be performed in a staged or concurrent fashion...
The Hartmann procedure (end colostomy) remains a common operation for diverticulitis requiring surgery. However, the timing of subsequent colostomy reversal remains widely varied, and the optimal timi...
An 82-year-old male patient presented with a left-sided spontaneous chylothorax. A computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed a cystic tumor in the right upper anterior mediastinum and nodules in...
During laparoscopy pneumoperitoneum creates the necessary space in which to perform the operation. Growing evidence in general surgery has shown that reduction of intra-abdominal pressure ...
This prospective clinical study will compare a powered circular stapler to commercial mechanical staplers for performance issues in patients scheduled to undergo colectomy with left-sided ...
Minimally invasive surgery has become the standard treatment for many gynecologic disease processes. In the last decade, numerous studies have demonstrated that laparoscopic approaches to ...
The aim of this study is to determine the effects of AV port reversal (AVPR) on recirculation, clearance, post-filter ionized calcium and subsequently citrate dosing.
Open versus Laparoscopic Left-sided Hepatectomy (OLLEH) trial Multi-institutional, prospective and randomized trial in patients undergoing left sided hepatectomy through laparoscopic versu...
A congenital defect in which the heart is located on the right side of the THORAX instead of on the left side (levocardia, the normal position). When dextrocardia is accompanied with inverted HEART ATRIA, a right-sided STOMACH, and a left-sided LIVER, the combination is called dextrocardia with SITUS INVERSUS. Dextrocardia may adversely affect other thoracic organs.
A procedure in which a laparoscope (LAPAROSCOPES) is inserted through a small incision near the navel to examine the abdominal and pelvic organs in the PERITONEAL CAVITY. If appropriate, biopsy or surgery can be performed during laparoscopy.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
A vascular malformation of developmental origin characterized pathologically by ectasia of superficial dermal capillaries, and clinically by persistent macular erythema. In the past, port wine stains have frequently been termed capillary hemangiomas, which they are not; unfortunately this confusing practice persists: HEMANGIOMA, CAPILLARY is neoplastic, a port-wine stain is non-neoplastic. Port-wine stains vary in color from fairly pale pink to deep red or purple and in size from a few millimeters to many centimeters in diameter. The face is the most frequently affected site and they are most often unilateral. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 5th ed, p483)
A condition characterized by the dilated tortuous veins of the SPERMATIC CORD with a marked left-sided predominance. Adverse effect on male fertility occurs when varicocele leads to an increased scrotal (and testicular) temperature and reduced testicular volume.
