Laparoscopic liver resection is gaining increased application in the treatment of colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). The aim of this study is to compare safety and feasibility of minor laparoscopic liver resection vs. open liver resection in patients with CRLM. One hundred and twenty-eight patients who underwent minor resection of CRLM were retrospectively reviewed. Sixty-four consecutive cases of laparoscopic liver resections (LLR) were compared to a matched control group of 64 open liver resections (OLR).

Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) in children with cardiac arrest refractory to conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been reported with encouraging results. We reviewed outcomes of neonates with functional single ventricle (FSV) surviving post-cardiotomy ECPR after hospital discharge.

We would like to present this case to emphasize on the importance of rapid and accurate diagnosis leading to lifesaving emergent surgical approach. A 30 year-old male patient was taken to the emergency department after suffering from a gunshot wound. He had right subclavian artery injury. Right subclavian artery was ligated through an infraclavicular incision. The subclavian artery angiography, which was performed postoperatively, demonstrated the right axillary artery to be supplied by the collateral vasculature.

Recent case reports have described variants in the classification of biliary atresia and choledochal cyst requiring the expansion of the classical system for describing these anomalies. This in effect, further obscures the line between these two previously separate entities while highlighting the difficulties of intraoperative differentiation of biliary atresia, cystic biliary atresia, choledochal cyst, and Caroli's disease. In our case report, we describe a 34-week premature infant who developed a direct hyperbilirubinemia and was found to have an atypical presentation of choledochal cyst and biliary atresia.

Transcatheter Embolization of a Large Coronary Artery Fistula in a Child

Gorbatykh A, Krestjaninov O, Soynov I, Voitov A and Nichay N

Corresponding author: Alexey Voitov, MD, Division of Congenital Heart Surgery, State Research Institute of Circulation Pathology, 15 Rechkunovskaya street, 630055 Novosibirsk, Russian Federation

Coronary artery fistula is a rare congenital disease of a coronary circulation. The progress is usually favorable, but in case of a large right atrial coronary fistula a volume overload with a progressing heart failure may occur. Conventional treatment involves fistula's closure using cardiopulmonary bypass. We present a case of endovascular closure of a large coronary artery-to-right atrium fistula.
