Laparo-endoscopic transgastric resection of gastric submucosal tumors.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 03-03-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Laparoscopic and endoluminal surgical techniques have evolved and allowed improvements in the methods for treating benign and malignant gastrointestinal diseases. To date, only case reports have been reported on the application of a laparo-endoscopic approach for resecting gastric submucosal tumors (SMT). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and oncologic outcomes of a laparo-endoscopic transgastric approach to resect tumors that would traditionally require either a laparoscopic or open surgical approach. Herein, we present the largest single institution series utilizing this technique for the resection of gastric SMT in North America.

Outcomes of robotic-assisted transhiatal esophagectomy for esophageal cancer after neoadjuvant chemoradiation.

Hide Abstract
We previously reported our experience performing robotic-assisted transhiatal esophagectomy (RATE) in patients with early-stage esophageal cancer who had had no preoperative treatment. The purpose of this report was to determine if RATE could be performed safely with good outcomes for esophageal cancer in a more recent series of patients, the majority of whom were treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiation.

Transanal minimally invasive surgery for benign and malignant rectal neoplasia.

Hide Abstract
Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS), an alternative technique to transanal endoscopic microsurgery, was developed in 2009. Herein, we describe our initial experience using TAMIS for benign and malignant rectal neoplasia.

Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery procedures have evolved over the past few years. A transvaginal approach is a promising alternative for intraperitoneal procedures. Our objective was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of transvaginal organ extraction.

TAMIS-assisted laparoscopic low anterior resection with total mesorectal excision in a cadaveric series.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 02-11-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
To demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative technique for the surgical management of rectal cancer, we performed transanal minimally invasive surgery assisted low anterior resection with total mesorectal excision (TAMIS-assisted LAR with TME) in a cadaver model. Transanal LAR via natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery has been reported in cadaveric series using rigid transanal platforms. This procedure has not been described using a combination of a single incision laparoscopy and TAMIS transanal endoscopic platform. We describe the first cadaveric series of TAMIS-assisted LAR with TME.

Initial experience with an innovative endoscopic clipping system.
Surg Technol Int
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
There are few options for the treatment of fistulas, leaks, and perforations endoscopically. Here we describe our experience with an endoscopic clipping system. A retrospective review of all cases using the Over-The-Scope-Clip system (Ovesco Endoscopy AG, Tuebingen, Germany) was performed. The system was utilized in ten patients with gastrointestinal surgical complications. Four patients had gastric leaks following sleeve gastrectomy, one had a post-operative colonic leak, two had gastro-gastric fistulas following gastric bypass, and three had esophageal perforations. Two leak patients had complete resolution, one had a contained leak following clip placement that was clinically insignificant, and the fourth patient had a persistent leak despite two clipping procedures. Two patients had gastro-gastric fistulas following roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery and, while they both had initial success, the fistulas recurred. One patient presented with anastomotic leak following colon resection but the system was unable to reach the treatment site. Three patients were successfully treated for esophageal perforation. There were no complications. This over-the-scope endoscopic clip system is simple to use, safe, and successful in approximating tissue to treat traditionally difficult surgical complications. Further experience and longer follow-up are needed to assess its indications as related to defect size and location.

eTAMIS: endoscopic visualization for transanal minimally invasive surgery.
Surg Endosc
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Transanal endoscopic microsurgical (TEM) resection is associated with improved outcomes compared to transanal excision of rectal lesions. However, TEM equipment requires additional operative setup time, and tumor location dictates patient positioning. In 2010, Drs. Attallah, Albert, and Larach developed an alternative technique, transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS). Herein, we describe our novel experience using endoscopic visualization to perform TAMIS (eTAMIS) to remove a large rectal polyp.

Transgastric large-organ extraction: the initial human experience.
Surg Endosc
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
In laparoscopy, it often is the case that port sites are enlarged for specimen extraction. This leads to higher risk of trocar site complications, such as infection or incisional hernia. Natural orifice surgery (NOTES) is beneficial for minimizing these complications, and this is emphasized when the extracted specimen is of large volume. We have been using transgastric technique for appendectomy, cholecystectomy, and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Of these transgastric operations, we focus on the one with relatively large-organ extraction: LSG with transoral remnant extraction (TORE). We describe the details and feasibility of this procedure and compare the outcomes to conventional LSG.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
