Hartman's reversal remains challenging and is associated with a widely variable success rate. In a previous study, we reported that laparoscopy may lower the mortality and morbidity rates of the procedure. The aim of the current study was to assess the operative results of single-port laparoscopic Hartmann's reversal (SP-HR) as compared to the more standard, multi-port laparoscopic variant (MP-HR).

Laparoscopic techniques may be preferable to open surgery for reversal of Hartmann's procedures(1). Recently, transanal laparoscopy has been used for revisional colorectal surgery and also for Hartman...
Hartmann's procedure is the surgical treatment of choice for perforated acute diverticulitis. Hartmann's reversal (HR) that is performed at a later stage may be challenging. The optimal timing for HR ...
Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) and single-incision plus one-port laparoscopic surgery (SILS+1) for colorectal cancer are considered to require long operative times, experienced surgeons, ...
As laparoscopic techniques and equipments improve, laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has been gaining popularity. The objective of the study was to summarize 9 years of experience using a single-po...
This study aimed to assess outcomes of Hartmann's reversal (HR) after failure of previous colorectal (CRA) or coloanal anastomosis (CAA).
The objectives of this trial are: 1. to assess the feasibility and safety of performing SILS™ Port Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy 2. monitor and compare the outcomes of SI...
Despite growing popularity, practical advantages of single-port laparoscopic appendectomy (SLA) over conventional three-port laparoscopic appendectomy (CLA) have yet to be established well...
This is a prospective trial of single incision versus standard 3-port laparoscopic appendectomy. The hypothesis is that there may a difference in wound infection rates, operative time, ...
The aim of this study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of single port laparoscopic appendectomy compared with conventional laparoscopic appendectomy in adults with acute appendici...
This project aims to investigate the safety and effectiveness of gasless single-port laparoscopic-assisted radical resection (GSLR) in the treatment of rectal carcinoma.
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)
Procedures to reverse the effect of REPRODUCTIVE STERILIZATION and to regain fertility. Reversal procedures include those used to restore the flow in the FALLOPIAN TUBE or the VAS DEFERENS.
Complete or partial change from one sex to another with regard to gonadal development. Gonadal sex reversal may occur naturally or be induced by factors such as steroids, temperature, and autosomal abnormalities during the critical period of gonadal differentiation (SEX DIFFERENTIATION) in some species.
The joining of RNA from two different genes. One type of trans-splicing is the "spliced leader" type (primarily found in protozoans such as trypanosomes and in lower invertebrates such as nematodes) which results in the addition of a capped, noncoding, spliced leader sequence to the 5' end of mRNAs. Another type of trans-splicing is the "discontinuous group II introns" type (found in plant/algal chloroplasts and plant mitochondria) which results in the joining of two independently transcribed coding sequences. Both are mechanistically similar to conventional nuclear pre-mRNA cis-splicing. Mammalian cells are also capable of trans-splicing.
The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.
