Background Mixed-reality technology, a new digital holographic image technology, is used to present 3-dimensional (3D) images in the surgical space using a wearable mixed-reality device. This study aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic cholecystectomy using a holography-guided navigation system as an intraoperative support image.I...
Chapter
In an operative room, medical images serve as intraoperative navigation or support for surgeons to ensure safe surgery. However, conventional two-dimensional images from drip infusion cholangiography with CT (DIC-CT) or magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) are difficult to understand the anatomy intuitively. Then, we have developed a...

Introduction Although bariatric surgery is increasing in Japan, revision surgery is uncommon. To clarify indications for the various revision surgeries available, we retrospectively assessed perioperative/postoperative outcomes of revisional weight loss surgeries performed at our medical center between July 2006 and July 2017. Methods The study gr...

Background Reduced-port laparoscopic surgery remains controversial due to technical challenges that can lead to suboptimal outcomes, and data pertaining to operative and clinical outcomes of reduced-port sleeve gastrectomy (RPSG) vs. conventional laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (CLSG) are lacking. Aims This retrospective case-matched study aimed t...

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has become the dominant bariatric procedure because of its reliable weight loss and low complication rate. Portomesenteric vein thrombosis (PMVT) after LSG is an infrequent complication that can lead to serious consequences. Here, we report a patient who presented with abdominal pain 11 days after LSG for the t...

... The authors pointed out that although the safety and accuracy were assessed, the reduction of surgical time and radiation exposure were not, and the workload was not mentioned. Since this technology can also be expected to significantly reduce the workload, the workload itself should be evaluated using a questionnaire methods that have been widely validated (i.e., System Usability score, Surgical Task Load Index, and NASA-Task load index) 3,4 . However, such workload questionnaires have not been widely shared for cases of spine surgery. ...
... Conversion procedures, such as sleeve gastrectomy (cSG) or Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (cRYGB), after removing the LAGB are the most common surgical revision procedures which lead to significant weight loss with acceptable rates of morbidity and mortality [6,7]. Some studies, however, have shown higher complication rates and longer lengths of hospital stay compared with primary bariatric surgery procedures [8,9]. To date, few studies have considered one anastomosis gastric bypass (cOAGB) following LAGB [4,10,11]. ...
... Single-port sleeve gastrectomy (SPSG) and reduced port sleeve gastrectomy (RPSG) that utilizes one additional port have been increasingly reported in the literature 8,9 . However, there is still an ongoing debate on whether the technical difficulties of the single-port approach might lead to an increased risk of postoperative morbidity and suboptimal sleeve construction 7 . ...
... All but one study [17] reported outcomes separately for each DOAC. Sixteen studies reported clinical outcomes only (n=3,145 patients) [16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30][31], three reported pharmacokinetic outcomes only (n=3 patients) [32][33][34] and nine reported both clinical and pharmacokinetic outcomes (n=81 patients) [15,[35][36][37][38][39][40][41][42]. Only one study [17] compared DOACs with warfarin in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation after bariatric surgery and did not show a statistically significant difference in the rate of stroke or systemic embolism, or major bleeding between the two interventions (Appendix Table 2). ...
