A diaphragmatic hernia (DH) is a protrusion of abdominal contents into the thoracic cavity as a result of a defect within diaphragm. It is most common as a congenital phenomenon; however, there have also been cases where it can be acquired. DH can be life-threatening, resulting in incarceration and strangulation.
Several damage-control procedures have been described in the literature in case of severe Calot’s triangle
inflammation and fibrosis. In this report, we describe patients who underwent laparoscopic partial cholecystectomy
using an endoscopic linear stapler.
Comparison of single incision and multi incision diagnostic laparoscopy on evaluation of diaphragmatic status after left thoracoabdominal penetrating stab wounds
Single incision diagnostic laparoscopy (SIDL) may be an alternative procedure to multi-incision diagnostic laparoscopy (MDL) for penetrating thoracoabdominal stab wounds. The purpose of this study is sharing our experience and comparing two techniques for diaphragmatic status.
The effects of pneumoperitoneum pressure on blood gases, respiratory and venous systems during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: A prospective randomized trial
Increased abdominal pressure during pneumoperitoneum may distress respiratory functions
and venous systems. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of low and high pneumoperitoneum
pressure during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
