For McKeown esophagectomy, gastric tube is widely used for constructing esophagogastrotomy. Traditionally, the gastric fundus is preserved for gastric tube formation in order to provide adequate length of the gastric conduit for neck anastomosis. However, gastric stump necrosis, anastomotic leakage, and postoperative gastric tube dilatation are the common postoperative complications for McKeown esophagectomy using traditional gastric tube. Here, we reported a novel coniform gastric tube shaping technique to maximally avoid conduit dilatation after the McKeown esophagectomy without nasogastric tube placement, while simultaneously maintain a tension-free and well-perfused anastomosis.

Previous evaluations of the oncologic efficacy of minimally invasive approaches to total gastrectomy in gastric adenocarcinoma have been limited by sample size and duration of follow-up.
We aim to review the available literature on morbidly obese patients treated with one anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) or Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in order to compare the clinical outcomes of ...
Although the data on minimally invasive right hemicolectomy in an elective setting have progressively been increasing, minimally invasive approaches are seldom preferred in a non-elective setting (1)....
There is a growing interest in minimally invasive endoscopic gallbladder drainage therapies. Unlike stenting, a technology based on magnetic compression could theoretically produce a durable drainage ...
The purpose of this study is to test the utility of the nasogastric tube, which is used to decompress and as "guardian" of gastro-jejunal anastomosis, in patients undergoing distal subtota...
Right-sided colonic cancer is treated with right-sided colectomy, predominantly performed as minimally invasive surgery with extracorporeal anastomosis (ECA). In recent years a new techniq...
The primary objective of the preSponge randomized controlled trial (RCT) will be to assess the potential protective effects of preemptive endoscopic negative pressure therapy (ENP) on post...
Of the esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma (AEG) is a 5 cm region of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and stomach. Due to the special anatomical location, the biological behavior of eso...
Adult patients who are regularly scheduled to undergo a right hemicolectomy via a minimally invasive approach (robotic or laparoscopic) with the creation of an anastomosis.
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.
Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.
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.
Minimally invasive procedures, diagnostic or therapeutic, performed within the BLOOD VESSELS. They may be perfomed via ANGIOSCOPY; INTERVENTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; INTERVENTIONAL RADIOGRAPHY; or INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
