Robotic total mesorectal excision, a practical solution in an obese female patient
This video describes a practical solution to total mesorectal excision using robotics. The patient is a 55-year-old female with a BMI of 32 and low rectal cancer localized 3cm above the anorectal ring. She also has large uterine fibroids.
The patient received preoperative chemoradiation and subsequently underwent a surgical procedure in form of ultra low anterior resection with colonic J pouch creation and protective ileostomy.
The concept of the procedure utilizes several surgical techniques which seem to be best suited for an obese patient with locally advanced low rectal cancer. The main emphasis during this presentation is placed on robotic total mesorectal excision. On the other hand, we would like to present a fairly universal approach to any low rectal cancer.
Several important issues in regards to the current robotic technology are discussed. These include the obvious advantage in the deep pelvis, hybrid concept, and the answer to the question “Why isn’t the entire procedure performed robotically?”

Laparoscopic partial cystectomy for deep endometriosis
Patients with bladder endometriosis may present with variable painful symptoms, hematuria, repeated urinary infection and/or infertility. The main treatment is a complete resection of the lesion. We report the case of a 30-year-old patient with no previous pregnancies presenting with pelvic endometriosis recurrence located at the level of the bladder dome. Her medical history shows a cystoscopic coagulation of an endometriotic nodule of the bladder. Preoperative MRI showed a 3cm single nodule protruding of the bladder. The procedure started by the dissection of the vesicouterine space followed by partial cystectomy using a monopolar hook. A running suture in two layers was carried out to close the cystotomy, and its integrity and bilateral ureteral patency was confirmed. Six weeks later at postoperative follow-up the patient was pain-free and without any urinary symptoms.
This video was awarded first place at the AAGL 5th International Congress on Minimally Invasive Gynecology held in conjunction with the Turkish Society of Gynecological Endoscopy (TSGE) 4th Annual Scientific Meeting.
