Laparoscopic Nephrectomy for Wilms Tumor

Purpose Wilms tumor is the most frequent primary renal malignancy in children. The surgical resection is traditionally performed through laparotomy. The advent of laparoscopic surgery for benign renal lesions has conducted the surgeon to apply a minimal invasive approach for the nephroblastoma[1]. As described in the literature, there are different benefits in the use of […]

Bronchogenic Cyst in a Child: the use of a 5 mm stapler for thoracoscopic resection

Introduction Over the past two decades minimally invasive techniques have been widely used in children thanks to instrumental and technological development. The advantages of minimally invasive surgery are well known and they are even more important in pediatric age. Unfortunately the widespread adoption of these techniques is limited by small spaces in which the surgeon […]

A New Robotic Platform for Endoscopic Skill Training

Introduction Nowadays, basic training in laparoscopy is executed in three ways: Trainings Based on real Animals (TBA), Laparoscopic Trainer Box (LTB) (Fig.1a), and Virtual Reality Simulators (VRS) (Fig.1b). The training on living animals represents the best solution in terms of force feedback and realism, but on the other hand it is very expensive and involves […]

Single port laparoscopic assisted pyloromyotomy: our experience

Background Ramstedt pyloromyotomy is the procedure of choice for infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis; however, the best way to approach the pylorus is debated. Recent literature reports many comparisons between various open and laparoscopic approaches. The purpose of this experience is to show a new approach to infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis: single-port, laparoscopic-assisted pyloromyotomy.
