During surgery for rectal cancer, there is considerable controversy regarding the optimal level of ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA). Several studies have demonstrated the b...
14,000 new cases of rectal cancer are diagnosed each year, frail and elderly patients represent a rising proportion of these patients. Whilst the gold standard is often to remove the tumou...
Transanal endoscopic microsurgery is the main treatment option for rectal tumors such as large adenoma, early cancer because of lower complications and mortality rates and shorter hospital...
Total mesorectal excision (TME) is the gold standard procedure for treating rectal cancer. However, in patients with obesity, prostate hypertrophy, low located tumor or/and pelvic stenosis...
This is a research to study primarily the effect of rapidly infused high strong ion difference (SID) fluid vs Hartmann's solution in altering the pH and bicarbonate level of the patient, w...
Several studies have documented the feasibility of a laparoscopic Hartmann's procedure for complicated diverticulitis not amenable to an anastomosis with proximal diversion (1). Others have also shown...
Low Hartmann's procedure (LHP) and intersphincteric abdominoperineal resection (iAPR) are both surgical options in the treatment of distal rectal cancer when there is no intention to restore bowel con...
Endoscopic submucosal dissection is an effective procedure for treating non-invasive colorectal tumors. However, in cases of severe fibrosis, endoscopic submucosal dissection may be technically diffic...
Total mesorectal excision (TME) is the gold standard resectional strategy for rectal cancer to minimize loco-regional recurrence and optimize oncological outcomes. This plane is described by many as '...
Recently, in order to overcome the shortcomings of laparoscopic surgery in the treatment of low rectal cancer, a new kind of surgical procedure, transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME), has rapidl...
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Procedure involving the instillation of an anesthetic into the rectum.
Tumors or cancer of the RECTUM.
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
Aneurysm caused by a tear in the TUNICA INTIMA of a blood vessel leading to interstitial HEMORRHAGE, and splitting (dissecting) of the vessel wall, often involving the AORTA. Dissection between the intima and media causes luminal occlusion. Dissection at the media, or between the media and the outer adventitia causes aneurismal dilation.
