Abstract

Transgastric and transvaginal approaches in natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) are the most commonly used, although the transcolonic approach may have some advantages. To develop a workable technique for transcolonic NOTES. A nonsurvival study followed by a survival study in a porcine model. Transcolonic peritoneoscopy was performed with the use of a novel intracolonic occlusion balloon. The colotomy was closed with endoclips. A necropsy and histologic evaluation were performed 2 weeks after surgery. Academic hospital, health science research center. Fifteen female Yorkshire pigs (5 nonsurvival, 10 survival). A balloon-tipped catheter was placed proximal to the colotomy site. The balloon was inflated to occlude the colonic lumen. An endoscope was inserted through the anus. Colonic incision was created with an endoscopic needle-knife at 15 to 20 cm from the anal verge. Peritoneoscopy was performed. The colotomy was closed with endoclips. Rates of complications, survival, healing, and adhesions. Two initial experiments were complicated by bowel distension and contamination of the incision area by colonic content. In the remaining 13 pigs, the experiments were performed with the use of the intracolonic occlusion balloon. No complications were documented. Necropsies were performed 2 weeks after surgery. Gross and histologic evaluations demonstrated near complete healing. Minimal adhesions were identified in 4 of 10 pigs. Imperfection of the prototype balloon. Excessive bowel distension and fecal contamination because of spillage from the proximal bowel may be barriers to performing transcolonic NOTES. Isolation of the operative area by splitting the bowel and sealing the colonic lumen with the balloon above the colonic incision may overcome these problems and optimize the technique.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 May 2015.
All research outputs
#3,489,727
of 12,194,908 outputs
Outputs from Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
#807
of 3,142 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#95,792
of 258,809 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
#33
of 81 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,194,908 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,142 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.7. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 258,809 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 81 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 59% of its contemporaries.
