Three-port minilaparoscopic cholecystectomy in children: a single center experience

Abstract Background: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the treatment of choice in symptomatic pediatric cholelithiasis. This study attempts to determine whether further reductions in the number of ports and port size can improve postoperative pain and traumatism without compromising the efficacy of the surgery. Methods: From 2011 to 2016, 32 patients underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Twelve out of […]

Laparoscopic surgery in children: abdominal wall complications

Abstract Minimal invasive surgery has become the standard of care for operations involving the thoracic and abdominal cavities for all ages. Laparoscopic complications can occur as well as more invasive surgical procedures and we can classify them into non-specific and specific. Our goal is to analyze the most influential available scientific literature and to expose […]

 A: Abdominal CT demonstrates a large (8 x 5 x 4 cm) retroperitoneal cystic mass (white arrows) extending from the lower left kidney pole to the ureter intersection with iliac vessels, tightly adhered to the left ureter. B: Relationship between the lymphangioma (asterisk) and spermatic vessels (arrow). C: T2-weighted MRI showing the close relationship between the mass (asterisk) and the left ureter (arrow).

Laparoscopic Management of retroperitoneal cystic lymphangiomas in children: a systematic review and an additional case report

Abstract AIM: Retroperitoneal cystic lymphangiomas (RCLs) are rare vascular malformations which account for approximately 1% of all lymphangiomas in infancy. Surgical treatment of RCLs may be particularly challenging, due to their possible connection with vital structures. Laparoscopic excision has been recently described for RCLs also in pediatric patients, with only 14 published cases. METHODS: Authors […]

Primary laparoscopic excision of benign mature retroperitoneal teratoma

ABSTRACT Introduction: Retroperitoneum is the third most common extragonadal site for occurrence of teratoma in children, after sacrococcygeal region and gonadal sites. Although many authors have previously reported laparoscopic removal of benign retroperitoneal teratoma in adults, the experience in pediatric setting is extremely limited. Material and methods: We report our experience with laparoscopic excision of a […]

Role of Laparoscopy in the Management of Isolated Fallopian Tube Torsion in Adolescents

  ABSTRACT Background/Purpose Isolated Fallopian tube torsion (IFTT) is a rare cause of acute abdominal pain in female. The preoperative diagnosis is difficult because of a lack of specific clinical and radiological signs. Surgery is often performed when is no longer possible to preserve the integrity of the tube. We report our experience in the […]

Laparo-Assisted Treatment of Intestinal Atresia: a single center experience

Introduction The Jejuno – ileal atresia is the most usual cause of congenital intestinal occlusion in newborns and the duodenal atresia is the most usual cause of high bowel obstruction in the neonatal period (1). In most cases, prenatal diagnosis is possible thanks to ultrasound monitoring of the pregnancies. Early diagnosis together with the neonatal […]

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 […]
