Fluorescence imaging is a promising innovative modality for image-guided surgery in surgical oncology. In this video we describe the technical procedure for detection of the sentinel lymph node using fluorescence imaging as showcased in gynecologic oncologicy. A multispectral fluorescence camera system, together with the fluorescent agent indocyanine green, is applied.

We present a neonate with a large saccular aneurysm of the thoracoabdominal aorta, extending from the intrathoracic aorta to the left common iliac artery. No underlying cause could be identified. Despite an early diagnosis, the aneurysm was deemed inoperable because of the lengthy involvement and the frail aspect of all visceral arteries. A review of the literature on congenital abdominal aortic aneurysm in infants was conducted. Eleven cases of live-born infants with a congenital abdominal aortic aneurysm have previously been published. None of them involved as large a part of the thoracic and abdominal aorta as the case presented here.
Location in the Right Hemi-colon is an Independent Risk Factor for Delayed Post-polypectomy Hemorrhage: a Multi-center Case-control Study
The American Journal of Gastroenterology. Jun, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 21266961
Delayed hemorrhage is an infrequent, but serious complication of colonoscopic polypectomy. Large size is the only polyp-related factor that has been unequivocally proven to increase the risk of delayed bleeding. It has been suggested that location in the right hemi-colon is also a risk factor. The objective of this study was to determine whether polyp location is an independent risk factor for delayed post-polypectomy hemorrhage.
The Critical View of Safety and Routine Intraoperative Cholangiography Complement Each Other As Safety Measures During Cholecystectomy

Lower Rate of Major Bile Duct Injury and Increased Intraoperative Management of Common Bile Duct Stones After Implementation of Routine Intraoperative Cholangiography
Journal of the American College of Surgeons. Aug, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 21459631
Our university medical center is the only center in The Netherlands that has adopted a policy of routine intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) during cholecystectomy. This study aimed to describe the rate of bile duct injury (BDI) and management of common bile duct (CBD) stones before and after implementation of a routine IOC policy.
Intraoperative Assessment of Biliary Anatomy for Prevention of Bile Duct Injury: a Review of Current and Future Patient Safety Interventions
Surgical Endoscopy. Aug, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 21487883
Bile duct injury (BDI) is a dreaded complication of cholecystectomy, often caused by misinterpretation of biliary anatomy. To prevent BDI, techniques have been developed for intraoperative assessment of bile duct anatomy. This article reviews the evidence for the different techniques and discusses their strengths and weaknesses in terms of efficacy, ease, and cost-effectiveness.
Constipation and Non-Specific Abdominal Pain Are The Main Causes of Acute Abdominal Pain in Teenage Girls Referred for Emergency Surgical Consultation
Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition. Oct, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 22008956
OBJECTIVE:: To describe the discharge diagnoses of children receiving surgical consultation for acute abdominal pain according to age and gender . METHODS:: Retrospective chart review. RESULTS:: 941 children were included. Appendicitis was confirmed in 31% of young boys (<12 years), 42% of teenage boys (≥12 years), 38% of young girls and only 18% of teenage girls. The low percentage of teenage girls with appendicitis was caused by a large number of teenage girls that were diagnosed with constipation and non-specific abdominal pain (NSAP). Gynecological diagnoses were relatively rare (9% of teenage girls).Teenage girls often required multiple visits to the emergency department. In addition, they frequently received consultation from other medical specialists: 30%, versus 20% of young girls and 12% of boys. Teenage girls had the highest rate of (retrospectively) unnecessary surgery: 36% versus 10% of young girls (p < 0.01) and 11% of boys (p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS:: Most children receiving surgical consultation for acute abdominal pain do not have diseases requiring surgery. In teenage girls, especially, the proportion with appendicitis is low. Constipation and non-specific abdominal pain are the main discharge diagnoses in this group. Physicians should have a high index of suspicion of constipation when examining teenage girls with acute abdominal pain.
