Validation of 3 Dimensional Laparoscopic System in Disral Pancreatectomy and Splenectomy

2016-05-02 22:08:21 | BioPortfolio


Traditionally, laparoscopy has been based on 2-dimensional (2D) imaging, which has represented a considerable challenge for those approaching this technique. Thus, 3-dimensional (3D) visualization technology for laparoscopy has been proposed, since the early 1990s, as a way to facilitate laparoscopic performance. However, early 3D laparoscopic technology was limited in terms of image quality, so that its use had not been implemented. More recently, industry has developed novel 3D systems where the imaging is similar to stereoscopic vision, in which the depth perception is achieved by different unique images received by each eye. Thus, more recent studies have suggested a possible advantage provided by these new 3D systems during laparoscopic performance. However, comparative assessments of new generation 3D vs 2D laparoscopy remain limited, especially in the hepatobiliary and pancreatic field.

To assess the benefits and harms of use of three dimensional systems versus two dimensional systems during laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy.



1. the investigators will take the patient consent for this clinical trial.

2. The participants will be divided with two groups with block randomized method

3. Skillful pancreatic surgeon will perform 2D or 3D laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy.

4. The participants will be monitor the intraoperative and postoperative course.

Data collection

1. operation video : operation time, number of errors (missed grasp, loss of material)

1. Segmental operation time according to procedure

2. Numbers of errors during operation

2. clinical parameters:

1. Blood examination : complete blood count (hemoglobin, white blood cell count), amylase, lipase, etc.

2. Radiological examination: X-ray, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), etc

3. Medical records : hospital stay after operation, the time to eating, pathologic examination

3. Subjective scoring in the view of operator, 1st assist.

1. Scoring for imaging quality

2. Scoring for harms of 3D/2D laparoscopic system

3. Scoring for overall demand

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.

A cartilage-capped benign tumor that often appears as a stalk on the surface of bone. It is probably a developmental malformation rather than a true neoplasm and is usually found in the metaphysis of the distal femur, proximal tibia, or proximal humerus. Osteochondroma is the most common of benign bone tumors.
