Penile Carcinoma in Northern Trinidad and Tobago

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.303
Pages: 
571–4
Synopsis: 
The incidence of penile carcinoma in Trinidad and Tobago is low and has halved in the past two decades. It stands at 0.6 cases per 100 000 males; the peak age group is 41–50 years and 95% of cases occur between 41 and 80 years. The decreasing incidence may be attributed to better hygiene, a higher rate of circumcision and low human papillomavirus rates in this population.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the current incidence as well as general and ethnic trends of penile carcinoma in northern Trinidad and Tobago.

Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted on all cases of penile carcinoma presenting in north and east Trinidad, as well as Tobago over an eight-year period.

Laparoscopic Heller’s Myotomy for Treatment of Achalasia in the Caribbean

The History of Laparoscopic General Surgery in the Caribbean

Issue: 
Pages: 
467–71
Synopsis: 
This article serves to trace the history of laparoscopic surgery in the West Indies and to uncover the advances in this field in the Caribbean.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The first world witnessed a laparoscopic revolution in the 1990s. At the start, laparoscopic surgery was heavily criticized and ridiculed. Despite this, the specialty has blossomed where almost any procedure can be done laparoscopically with the now obvious tremendous benefit to the patients. The objective of this paper is to examine where the Caribbean is placed relative to the rest of the world in terms of laparoscopic surgery and to understand why we are here.
