Abstract: Partial splenectomy has emerged as a surgical option for children with hereditary spherocytosis. The goal of reducing anemia and hypersplenism while preserving splenic immunologic function to avoid potential Overwhelming Post-Splenectomy Infection (OPSI) is logical. This report evaluates the feasibility and safety of a novel technique that utilizes the advantages of laparoscopy to mobilize the spleen and division of short gastric arteries and veins followed by evisceration of the spleen to utilize the advantages of open surgical technique and ease of hemostasis during subtotal resection of the spleen.

Abstract: We describe the first 1000 cases of minimally invasive radical prostatectomy performed by a single surgeon in a developing country. Aspects related to the learning curve, technical modifications over time and the transition LRP-RARP were also included.
RESEARCH ARTICLE Pages 40-43
Abstract: Lumbar hernia after lumbotomy is rare especially nowadays due to routinely application of minimally invasive treatments for kidney and adrenal diseases. We present our results with laparoscopic mesh repair analyzing objective parameters and patient satisfaction in at least 1 year of follow-up.
RESEARCH ARTICLE Pages 34-39
Abstract: Video Endoscopic Inguinal Lymphadenectomy (VEIL) is feasible and safe in selected patient with groin metastases. Simultaneous bilateral performance seems to improve morbidity, however it still requires standardization. This article aims to describe a standardized and planned training model for VEIL.
CASE REPORT Pages 29-33
Abstract: Adenomyosis was classically defined by Bird, et al. as "Benign invasion of endometrium in the myometrium producing a diffusely enlarged uterus which microscopically exhibits ectopic nonneoplastic endometrial glands and stroma surrounded by hypertrophic and hyperplastic myometrium"
REVIEW ARTICLE Pages 25-28
Abstract: There has been an important increase in the prevalence of GERD in the United States in the last two decades and obesity seems to play an important role. GERD and its symptoms occur as result of anatomic and physiologic abnormalities.
Case Report Pages 21-24
Abstract: Endometriosis consists on the presence of functionally active ectopic endometrial tissue. The thorax is the most frequent extrapelvic location. The causes of endometriosis are not well known yet and involve both genetic and environmental factors.
Case Report Pages 17-20
Abstract: Torsion of the greater omentum is a highly uncommon cause of acute abdomen in adults and is extremely difficult to diagnose preoperatively. Usually it mimics other surgical emergencies such as acute cholecystitis, acute appendicitis, perforated peptic ulcers and acute diverticulitis and can be easily misdiagnosed leading to deterioration of the patient.
Research Article Pages 11-16
Abstract: The aim of this study was to compare results of treatment of non-functioning kidneys in neonates and infants using Single-Incision Laparoscopic Nephrectomy (SIL-N) and multi-ports laparoscopy.
Research Article Pages 5-10
Abstract: No studies in Australia have explored risk factors for Laparoscopic (LA) to Open Appendectomy (OA) conversion. Differences in outcome following a Midline (ML) or Right Iliac Fossa (RIF) approach for conversion have not been documented.
Case Report Pages 1-4
Abstract: During laparoscopic surgery, the production of smoke by energized dissecting devices is a problem because it can obstruct the view of the operative field. The products of combustion may also contain hazardous chemicals, such as benzene, toluene, viable cancer cells or viruses.
