Laparoscopic fundoplication

, : Laparoscopic fundoplication. Seminars in Pediatric Surgery 2(3): 178-181

For many years Nissen fundoplication has been the standard for surgical correction of gastroesophageal reflux. Fundoplication now can be performed laparoscopically as well. Advantages to the laparoscopic approach may include decreased complications, such as adhesive bowel obstruction, wound complications, and postoperative pulmonary complications. Moreover, there appears to be a shorter hospitalization time and an earlier return to enteral alimentation and unrestricted activities.

We present a newborn with glutathione synthetase deficiency and intracranial haemorrhages. Because the latter are rare in term newborns a possible relationship with glutathione synthetase deficiency will be discussed.

We recently characterized an anti-tumor protein termed angiocidin. Here, we report that angiocidin may inhibit angiogenesis by binding collagen and its receptors. Angiocidin bound purified type I collagen and alpha2beta1 with high affinity. K562 c...
