The aim of this study was to describe a surgical technique for the jejunostomy placement during laparoscopic staging
of two consecutive patients with advanced cancer of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
All patients were then submitted to laparoscopic staging
with both optic and ultrasound analyses in order to exclude unresectable conditions as peritoneal dissemination or liver metastases.
She underwent laparoscopic staging
in October 2015, which showed intra-abdominal carcinomatosis.
We further compared the laparoscopic staging
with histopathological diagnosis of endometriosis (Table 5), and found that there is no significant difference (p value=0.2251) in different stage of the disease in terms of frequency of presence or absence of histologically proven endometriosis.
-- Extraperitoneal para-aortic lymphadenectomy can result in more harvested nodes than standard laparoscopic or robot-assisted laparoscopic staging
of patients with endometrial cancer, according to Dr.
Surgeons from the US, UK, Chile, New Zealand, Asia, and Canada also present chapters on the history of surgery, preoperative and postoperative management, endoscopy and endoscopic intervention, laparoscopic surgery, and laparoscopic staging
and approaches to cancer.
The aim of laparoscopic staging
is to mimic staging at open exploration while minimizing morbidity, enhancing recovery, and thus allowing for quicker administration of adjuvant therapies if indicated [6-8].
Initial laparoscopic staging
was possible, with up to 29 lymph nodes per resected specimen identified and histologically examined, Dr.
The potential to prevent a non-therapeutic laparotomy by means of accurate and less invasive staging is the driving force behind laparoscopic staging
of GI malignancy.
In a series of cases in which we performed laparoscopic staging
for both cervical and endometrial cancer using the manipulator and compared it with conventional staging through laparotomy, we found no compromise in recurrence or in the survival rate (Int.
Kriplani and Kapur et al (4) who reported a diagnostic accuracy of 92% for laparoscopic staging
. In their series of 40 patients, Laparoscopy revealed metastases in five (13%) and locally advanced disease in 11 (28%) cases.
He and his associates performed a case-control study of 20 patients with apparent stage I adnexal cancers who underwent laparoscopic staging
between October 2000 and May 2003.
