Stapled Mesh Stoma Reinforcement Technique – Prof. Norman Williams
SMART is an acronym for Stapled Mesh stomA Reinforcement Technique. Developed by Prof. Norman Williams in conjunction with Frankenman International it is a means of creating and simultaneously reinforcing a stoma trephine to prevent parastomal herniation and can be performed whether the stoma is constructed by open or laparoscopic surgery.
Lower Anterior Resection – Dr. Matthias Hoffman
A lower anterior resection, formally known as anterior resection of the rectum and anterior excision of the rectum or simply anterior resection (less precise), is a common surgery for rectal cancer and occasionally is performed to remove a diseased or ruptured portion of the intestine in cases of diverticulitis. It is commonly abbreviated as LAR. LARs are for cancer in the proximal (upper) two-thirds of the rectum which lends itself well to resection while leaving the rectal sphincter intact.
Anterior Perineal Plane for Ultra Low Anterior Resection – Prof. Norman Williams
The APPEAR (Anterior Perineal Plane for Ultra Low Anterior Resection) technique. This novel technique is relevant to patients who suffer cancer very low in the rectum. These patients, as well as those suffering other diseases such as Ulcerative Colitis, need to have the very lowest part of the rectum removed. The APPEAR technique uses a crescenteric (crescent shaped) incision between the scrotum or back wall of the vagina and the anal canal to reach the very low rectum, allowing the surgeon to retain as much of the sphincter muscle as possible.
