In the last three decades, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has been widely used in pediatric surgery. Meta-analyses (MAs) showed that studies comparing minimally invasive with the corresponding op...
To find the incidence of tethered cord (TC) in patients with anorectal malformations (ARM) and to determine the relationship between bowel/urinary control and TC in a subset of patients with rectoblad...
To evaluate the spinal cord injury range in the patients with tethered cord syndrome who have urinary incontinence.
With an increase in the average life expectancy of the population, some histological types of symptomatic IEMT are more common in elderly and senile patients. Of the 45 patients included in the study,...
Tethered cord syndrome (TCS), a neurological disorder characterized by the lower settlement of the conus medullaris, is a congenital spinal disease which is caused by split cord syndrome, meningomyelo...
For twenty years, as for other surgical disciplines, new minimally invasive techniques have been developed with the main goal the reduction of muscle trauma associated with the surrounding...
This pilot clinical trial studies how well tethered capsule endoscope works in screening patients with Barret's esophagus (BE), a condition where the lining of the esophagus has changed or...
RATIONALE: A tethered capsule endoscope may be as effective as standard sedated endoscopy of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum in screening for Barrett esophagus. PURPOSE: This phase I...
This investigation aims to assess the clinical and radiographic outcomes of intrabony defects treated with minimally-invasive non-surgical therapy.
The goal of this research is to follow Barrett's Esophagus patients for 3 years using the tethered capsule endomicroscopy device with distal scanning and a compact imaging system in a mult...
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.

A common congenital midline defect of fusion of the vertebral arch without protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges. The lesion is also covered by skin. L5 and S1 are the most common vertebrae involved. The condition may be associated with an overlying area of hyperpigmented skin, a dermal sinus, or an abnormal patch of hair. The majority of individuals with this malformation are asymptomatic although there is an increased incidence of tethered cord syndrome and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS.

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
Minimally invasive procedures guided with the aid of magnetic resonance imaging to visualize tissue structures.
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 ...
