Laparoscopic training--the guarantee of a future in pediatric surgery


, : Laparoscopic training--the guarantee of a future in pediatric surgery. Chirurgia 104(3): 255-258

Laparoscopy is considered today the highlight of modern surgery, the forerunner of the fascinating world of video and robotic surgery, both of them derived from the sophisticated areas of aeronautic industry. Remarkably, Romanian specialists keep up with the pace of worldwide technological developments, assimilating one by one each and every video endoscopic procedure. In the early 90s, the Romanian laparos-copic school was founded with the contribution of many important personalities; their activities and achievements have been an inspiration for the following generation of laparoscopic surgeons. In this last decade, the newest branch of laparoscopic surgery in our country, pediatric laparoscopy, managed to evolve from its "shy" beginnings to become an important method of improving the quality of surgical procedures, to the benefit of our "small patients". The purpose of this article is to encourage and promote minimally invasive video endoscopic surgery training, emphasizing its crucial role in the education and professional development of the next generation of pediatric surgeons, and not only. The modem concept of laparoscopic training includes experimental scientific practices, as well as the newest technical acquisitions such as virtual reality video-electronic simulation.

Focusing of the serine protease urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) to the cell surface via interaction with its specific receptor (uPAR, CD87) is an important step for tumor cell invasion and metastasis. The ability of a synthetic peptide...

Rapid increases in atractyloside-insensitive binding of purine nucleotides (ADP or GDP) and in a polypeptide of 32 000 occur in brown adipose tissue mitochondria of the rat during acclimation to cold. The increased binding is apparent within 1 h a...

Folding of cofactor-binding proteins involves ligand binding in addition to polypeptide folding. We here assess the kinetic folding/ binding landscape for Desulfovibrio desulfuricans flavodoxin that coordinates an FMN cofactor. The apo-form folds...
