Background Although conventional open haemorrhoidectomy and stapled haemorrhoidectomy are effective procedures, they can lead to significant post-operative pain with risks to continence. Current evidence favours transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialisation (THD) and targeted mucopexy to be an efficacious alternative to conventional modalities. Our aim...

Schwannomas are peripheral nerve sheath tumours that can present as a rare tumour of GI tract, and even more uncommonly within the colon. We present a case of colonic schwannoma in an asymptomatic patient identified on surveillance colonoscopy. The tumour is of mesenchymal origin and is often challenging to diagnose prior to surgical resection. End...

Article
A temporary loop ileostomy is often created to minimize the impact of peritoneal sepsis if anastomotic dehiscence occurs following low colorectal anastomosis. Although it has been suggested that a loop ileostomy should be reversed within 12 weeks of formation, this is often not the case. We set out to analyse the use of loop ileostomy following ele...

However, with the passage of time reports of complications related to this new approach are being published. We report an unusual complication of gas embolism in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A high index of suspicion along with vigilant intraoperative mon...

Fifteen patients had adenomas, two had carcinomas and 2 had glands that were hyperplastic. In adenomatous patients, of a total of 57 expected glands, 15...
