Correlation between Processus vaginalis Patency and Metachronous Inguinal Hernia in Children

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.595
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
The incidence of asymptomatic patent processus vaginalis (PPV) does not significantly decrease with age. However, age and gender play an important role in the development of MCIH from PPV.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: In the present study, we report the incidence of CPPV with unilateral inguinal hernia and future MCIH, with the aim of assisting treatment of this disease.

Methods: A total of 20 636 cases of unilateral inguinal hernia that were surgically treated between January 2002 and December 2009 were retrospectively evaluated. Statistics were performed using Pearson test or χ2 as appropriate, and p < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.

Laparoscopic Pancreaticoduodenectomy - Experiences of 40 Cases

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.119
Synopsis: 
Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) was still one of the most challenging endoscopic surgeries by far and there were still some technical problems to be resolved. In this study, we try to investigate the difficulties and countermeasures of the LPD using a retrospective analysis for the surgical techniques of the LPD carried out for 40 patients in our hospital from December 2009 to Jul 2015 and the clinical data such as operative time, intra-operative blood loss, numbers of scavenged lymph node and postoperative complications were collected. The result showed that application of appropriate surgical approach, improvement of the resection of UP and modification of the pancreaticojejunostomy(PJ) could make the LPD easier and safer.

ABSTRACT

Background: Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) was still one of the most challenging endoscopic surgeries by far and there were still some technical problems to be resolved. In this study, we try to investigate the difficulties and countermeasures of the LPD.

Is Laparoscopy for Non-palpable Testes a Well-known Entity?

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.195
Synopsis: 
We report our laparoscopy results in non-palpable testes cases and emphasized the utility of laparoscopy in unilateral non-palpable testes cases in contrary to a previously published paper. We also discussed the different aspects of laparoscopic approach for non-palpable testis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Laparoscopy has been accepted as best diagnostic tool and suggested as the treatment of choice for non-palpable testes cases. However, its use in unilateral non-palpable testis case has previously been debated.

Methods: The clinical records of the non-palpable testes cases that were managed with laparoscopy between January 2011 and December 2013 were retrospectively reviewed.

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.
