Open versus Laparoscopic Left-sided Hepatectomy (OLLEH) trial Multi-institutional, prospective and randomized trial in patients undergoing left sided hepatectomy through laparoscopic versu...
Objective: Whether temporary endoscopic decompression by Self-expanding metal stents (SEMS) could allow these patients to undergo successful laparoscopic resection (endo-laparoscopic appro...
Two metaanalyses of studies on the prognostic significance of circulating cancer cells in colorectal cancer indicated, that the presence of CTC in the peripheral blood is the negative prog...
The main goal of this study is to clarify if laparoscopy (LPS) could become the standard approach in patients undergoing left colonic resection. 268 patient candidates to left colonic res...
The main goal of this study is to clarify if Robotic-assisted surgery could become the standard approach in patients undergoing left colonic resection. Patient candidates to left colonic ...
A laparoscopic approach can be attempted for pathologic T4 (pT4) colon cancer. Our aim was to evaluate the clinico-oncologic outcomes following laparoscopic versus open surgery for right and left-side...
Laparoscopic surgery has been increasingly utilized for the treatment of colon cancer following several randomized trials which have demonstrated that this approach results in less pain, quicker recov...
We evaluated whether distal pancreatectomy (DP) with AOR affected perioperative outcomes and survival in patients with left-sided PDAC.
Numerous recent studies have reported comparable oncologic outcomes of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy for pancreatic cancer compared with open surgery [1,2]. Most of these laparoscopic procedures,...
An 82-year-old male patient presented with a left-sided spontaneous chylothorax. A computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed a cystic tumor in the right upper anterior mediastinum and nodules in...
A congenital defect in which the heart is located on the right side of the THORAX instead of on the left side (levocardia, the normal position). When dextrocardia is accompanied with inverted HEART ATRIA, a right-sided STOMACH, and a left-sided LIVER, the combination is called dextrocardia with SITUS INVERSUS. Dextrocardia may adversely affect other thoracic organs.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between ASCENDING COLON and DESCENDING COLON. It passes from the RIGHT COLIC FLEXURE across the ABDOMEN, then turns sharply at the left colonic flexure into the descending colon.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the RECTUM. It includes the ASCENDING COLON; the TRANSVERSE COLON; the DESCENDING COLON; and the SIGMOID COLON.
The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the TRANSVERSE COLON. It passes cephalad from the cecum to the caudal surface of the right lobe of the LIVER where it bends sharply to the left, forming the right colic flexure.
