Advanced Techniques in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Colorectal Surgery Book Excerpt:

​The first edition laid out the foundation with laparoscopic and robotic surgery utilizing the Da Vinci SI platform. Since then, many new advances in equipment and surgical techniques are becoming more popular. This second edition expands upon laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques and robotic surgery with the use of the new Da Vinci XI platform. This book bridges the gap between the practicing community of surgeons and the surgical innovators and provides a foundation for all classic and new techniques in minimally invasive colorectal surgery. By enhancing the surgical toolbox, the surgeon is able to progress from the novice to the master. Rather than describing the entire operative procedure by an individual author, this book compares operative steps of various technical difficulties throughout different chapters, thereby allowing the surgeon to tailor surgery to patient and surgeon`s own comfort level and experience. Chapters are written by a myriad of renowned experts in the field and discuss the major advances in advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic, robotic, and transanal minimally invasive surgical techniques. Great emphasis is placed on transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME), which is dramatically changing the surgical approach to rectal resections. The second edition of Advanced Techniques in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Colorectal Surgery serves as a valuable resource to general surgeons, colon and rectal surgeons, minimally invasive surgeons, as well as residents and fellows.

Intracorporeal Anastomosis Book Excerpt:

​Laparoscopic and robotic approaches to colon, rectum and the small intestine have undergone radical change since the introduction of minimally invasive surgical techniques. At the beginning of this revolution, the most common anastomotic techniques have been extracorporeal. As a few surgeons became more familiar with minimally invasive suturing techniques, intracorporeal anastomosis became possible. However, the change from an extracorporeal approach has been slow to realization for the vast majority of surgeons. While there are multiple reasons for this slow adoption, the most common are perceived difficulty with suturing in a closed space, the feeling of lack of control, and the worry of increased infection in the abdomen. This book details the latest information in addressing and dispelling these fears. It provides a useful guide to techniques required to perform intracorporeal anastomoses both in laparoscopic and robotic surgery, and it shows the huge advantages to the patient, surgeon and to our health care system. Written by experts in the field, chapters serve as a definitive guide to the performance of intracorporeal techniques to all general and colon and rectal surgeons performing bowel resection both for benign and malignant disease. The chapters contain ample color photographs and videos describing each technique. Intracorporeal Anastomosis primarily focuses on laparoscopic and robotic techniques and contains the latest published data describing the advantages of using these minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery TAMIS and Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision taTME Book Excerpt:

​This book captures cornerstone developments in a new body of knowledge and provides an expert resource on a “hot topic” in rectal surgery. Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) was designed for local excision of select rectal neoplasms, however soon it became realized that the TAMIS technique could be used for applications beyond local excision, most notably for transanal total mesorectal excision (taTME). This new operative technique has revolutionized our approach to the distal rectum by allowing for improved access, especially in obese male patients with an android pelvis, and by minimizing abdominal wall access trauma. The endpoints of improved oncologic resection, as defined by mesorectal envelope completeness, negative circumferential resection margins, and negative distal margin, are assessed. This book details controversies, pitfalls, and future directions of taTME and TAMIS. Chapters are authored by those on the forefront of innovation with TAMIS and taTME, and each is considered an authority on the topic. Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) and Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (taTME) is a must-have reference for surgeons who are performing this operation and fellows in training who want to completely understand the various nuances of TAMIS and taTME.

Laparoscopic Colon Surgery Book Excerpt:

This book is the structured, comprehensive work of experienced surgeons and constitutes the condensed and succinct epitome of knowledge and guidance for those interested in Laparoscopic Colon Surgery (LCS), focusing only on colon laparoscopy. The milestones in LCS are presented offering valuable background information about the evolution of LCS throughout the years and presenting how it still has a limited application, no matter the need for minimal invasive, fast-track, surgical procedures that can offer better quality to patients and less cost for any healthcare system. The book aims to highlight the preferred diagnostic procedures, the right methods for the efficient and rational selection of patients, the choice of the best surgical techniques and treatments, and the best management of post-operative complications for an early discharge. It provides adequate information to the surgeons or the surgical residents interested in LCS about how to select, what to avoid, what instruments to use, what techniques to follow, how the evaluation of patient’s anatomy can lead to better surgical planning, and the add-on of robotic colon surgery in the quality of patients’ life. Moreover, the book provides information about the most efficient anaesthesia adequate for LCS; information that most books of its kind do not include. Finally, the book provides excellent information about the best education and practices to be followed in LCS; something of special importance after considering the level of difficulty associated with LCS and the high conversion rate compared to other laparoscopic procedures. Although the primary focus of this book are surgeons (LCS, GI, General) and surgical residents, the content still can offer valuable information to these healthcare leaders who are interested in understanding the milestones and benefits of the right model of education, and the best practices related to LCS.

Current Aspects of Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery Book Excerpt:

This publication of the papers presented at the Workshop on Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery that took place on 27-29 November 1995 in the European Surgical Institute in Norderstedt, Germany, is effectively a snapshot of the current state of knowledge in both the theory and the practice of minimally invasive colon surgery. This snapshot is a mosaic made up of the varied ex periences of individual surgeons. After a long period in which nothing much seemed to be happening, the recent growth in the use of minimally invasive surgery or video-controlled operative procedures in surgery of the abdominal and chest cavities has been unparalleled. More difficult operations have become increasingly possible as more and more new techniques have become available. Cholecystectomy should be regarded as the pacesetter for video-controlled procedures. Under defined conditions, it has now become the standard operation. Other operative procedures such as appendicectomy, hernior rhaphy, overs ewing of a perforated gastric or duodenal ulcer, vagotomy and fundoplication, operations on the spleen or adrenal, staging operations., and thoracic surgical procedures are becoming increasingly widely performed. Minimally invasive operations on the small and large bowel are currently still at the stage of individual reports.
