Fistula surgery is surgery to remove the path of a channel or abnormal connection between an organ, vessel, or intestine and another structure. Fistul Fistula surgery is surgery to remove the path of a channel or abnormal connection between an organ, vessel, or intestine and another structure. Fistula can occur in many parts of the body and usually the result of injury or surgery. There are different types of fistulas (blind, complete, incomplete, horseshoe) according to their type and require one kind or another intervention. Fistula operation can be approached with different techniques (cold, electrical or laser scalpel) and may include both fistulotomy (incision in the path of the fistula to the tissues heal from the inside out) as a fistulectomy (removal of the fistula tract) or marsupialization (close the channel forming a bag). In certain cases, you choose to seal the fistula with biological glues or plugs. Furthermore, the placement of special drains (seton) may be necessary, as in the case of an operation of perianal fistula, abscess associated. On occasion the only existing solution to a fistula may be the ultimate placement of a seton (drainage). Most fistulas respond well to surgical treatment but in some cases perianal fistula surgery can leave sequels such as incontinence. ...

That is why this is a very favorable area for the development of a cancer, since accumulated waste substances. Also, its causes are also determined by genetics, sedentary lifestyle and previous illnesses, such as polyps, ulcerative colitis and other cancers. The most obvious symptoms of the disease begin to make visible when the disease is advanced: alternating between diarrhea and constipation, blood in the stool, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, weight loss and fatigue.

Hemorrhoid surgery (piles) is surgery that is done to treat the veins that have been swollen or expanded around the anus. Hemorrhoid surgery is indicated when the patient has itching in the anus, anal bleeding, pain or gore. Piles operation can be carried out using different techniques, the most common is the hemorrhoidectomy, which involves removing hemorrhoids and leave the area sterile gauze to slow the bleeding. Another method is stapled hemorrhoidopexy (also called PTT or Longo method) which involves inserting a mechanical seaming anal rectal excising the excess tissue and, simultaneously, the mucosa with metallic suture points and hemorrhoids are repositioned in his natural position. There is also a surgical procedure to cure hemorrhoids that does not involve the removal of tissue: dearterialization guided transanal hemorrhoidal doppler (THD method), a minimally invasive and virtually painless technique that involves locating, with a Doppler probe and suture the hemorrhoidal artery that carries blood to hemorrhoids. In the same operation, mucosal prolapse has been placed on your site. ...
Hemorrhoids, also known commonly as piles, are the dilation of a vein in the rectum or anus. This is a very common and painful condition that is usually caused by constipation, genetic predisposition, being too long standing, or associated with pregnancy. There are two variations of this pathology:external and internal hemorrhoids. The first generate protrusions on the ring on the outside of the anus, so they are easier to diagnose and cause pain when sitting, as well as traces of blood in stool. Treatment consists in applying creams and warm water in the affected area and in cases of severe pain, taking painkillers. On the other hand, internal hemorrhoids occur inside the anus, causing bleeding in the stool and itching in the anal region. If they grow, a surgical intervention may be necessary to remove. ...
A hernia is the outward displacement of an organ or tissue of the cavity is normally housed. The patient notices a lump on the part of the body where it develops. The causes can be diverse, being congenital, acquired (obesity, constipation, physical exertion) or traumatic (for any impact or blow). The type of hernia depends on its location: femoral (upper thigh), more common in women; hiatal (upper part of the stomach); surgical or hernia (a poorly closed scar); umbilical (around the navel), which usually occurs when not heal well after birth; and inguinal (groin), more common in men. ...
Hiatal hernia is a condition that occurs when a portion of the stomach rises into the chest, through an opening located in the diaphragm, the wall that separates the chest from the abdomen. When the stomach moves into the chest, said gap loses its function and gastroesophageal reflux occurs, ie, the stomach contents back into the esophagus and irritate. The symptoms caused by this condition may be burning in the chest or throat, hoarseness, hoarseness, asthma or respiratory problems. The symptoms worsen after eating, during sleep or flex the trunk. Treatment for hiatal hernia depends on its severity, and sometimes does not require any type of therapy. In mild cases, the purpose is to control symptoms that improve with dietary measures and postural changes such as raising the head of the bed. In severe cases you can opt for the operation of a hiatal hernia, which is usually performed with the technique of fundoplication (minimally invasive laparoscopy). ...
An inguinal hernia occurs when a portion of an abdominal organ (typically the intestine) goes through a hole in a weak zone that contains the wall and form a bulge under the skin at the groin area. The inguinal hernia can be direct, manifested in the anterior abdominal wall, with oval appearance reducible, or indirectly, often reach the scrotum. The most obvious symptom is a swelling in the groin, which can cause pain, increasing with the effort, but it can also happen that the patient does not present any bulk and only discomfort in the area walking or make efforts. The danger of inguinal hernia occurs when the intestine is strangled by the hole and blood circulation (strangulated hernia) is cut, which can cause a tear in the body and cause peritonitis (inflammation of the membrane lining the wall abdomen and abdominal organs). The prescribed treatment is an inguinal hernia operation, which involves the reintroduction into the abdomen and externalized part in reinforcing the wall that contains it with their own fabrics, mesh or prosthesis. Surgery may be open in the groin or minimally invasive in the abdomen by laparoscopy. ...
Liver cancer is a disease in which the liver cells become abnormal and grow out of control form a cancerous tumor. This type of tumor is called primary liver cancer (malignant hepatoma or hepatocellular carcicoma). In contrast, metastatic liver cancer begins elsewhere and spreads to the liver. The liver is the largest organ in the body. Filters out harmful substances from the blood, digests fats from food and stores the sugar that the body needs for energy. The main risk factors for developing this primary liver cancer are hepatitis and cirrhosis or liver scarring. Treatment options include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or a liver transplant. ...
Obesity is a disease characterized by the presence of an excess of fat mass (fat) in the body and for weight gain, usually due to a disproportionate food intake. This condition is easily diagnosed by assessing the body mass index and overall constitution of the person. The sum of factors that cause this disease, typical of the XXI century, include a sedentary lifestyle, a poor dietary patterns, and genetic and environmental factors. On the other hand, obesity is often aggravated by a number of other associated diseases, such as diabetes, cholesterol, triglycerides and hypertension, in addition to incur certain social rejection and lead to psychological problems. Also among the population suffering from this disease, there is increased risk of cardiovascular events, particularly in patients with abdominal obesity (an indicator of insulin resistance). The treatment of obesity through the monitoring of the recommendations of endocrine and nutritionists, based on a good individualized dietary plan, and changes in daily routines, especially when it comes to exercise. It is also important to establish these guidelines from childhood to avoid the appearance of so-called childhood obesity. ...
Obesity surgery, known as bariatric surgery, is the set of techniques to reduce the intake or food absorption capacity. Surgery is indicated for morbidly obese patients having a body mass index greater than 40kg / m2 or to those affected by severe obesity and associated diseases. Moreover, stomach surgery is performed through restrictive, malabsorptive or mixed media. The restrictive adjustable gastric banding (one ring placed around the entrance of the stomach which limits intake) gastrectomy (stomach reduction operation to remove 80 percent of its volume) and plicated tubular gastroplasty (included stomach operation that reduces the intake capacity by inward folding of the wall of the stomach itself). Malabsorptive techniques are duodenal (removal of much of the stomach joins the small intestine up to the duodenum to take half of it) and biliopancreatic diversion (halving junction of the stomach and small intestine). The combined procedure is the gastric bypass (leaving a small stomach and connected to the small intestine, using 60 percent of it). All these methods can be performed by open or laparoscopic surgery. ...
Pancreatic cancer is a disease that causes the formation of malignant cells in the tissues of the body that would produce juices that help digest food and hormones to control the amount of sugar in the blood. It is a very aggressive type of stomach cancer, overtaking at dangerous only colon cancer, lung cancer and breast cancer. Among risk factors include smoking, diabetes, chronic pancreatitis and some hereditary conditions. It is a disease whose early symptoms are quite subtle, so often diagnosed when it is in an advanced stage. Still, the loss of weight and appetite, fatigue, pain in the abdomen and back and jaundice may be warnings of this ailment. Treatment depends on the degree of involvement of the disease and if that affected only the pancreas, removal of malignant cells by surgery is possible, although it is very common to return to play. If the cancer is in an advanced stage, it can resort to chemotherapy or chemoradiation. Finally, if it has also spread to other parts of the body (eg causing stomach cancer or other organs) is well advanced and palliative treatments exist to slow the rate of disease progression. ...
An umbilical hernia is caused when part of a (usually intestines) abdominal organ comes out hole of a weak area of the cavity in which it is housed, forming a lump or deformity under the skin around the navel. This problem can be caused by pregnancy, overweight, overexertion or weakness of the muscles of the abdomen and sometimes painful. An umbilical hernia presents complications when the organ has been externalized can not return to your site. In the case of intestines, this can cause an intestinal blockage or pain. Moreover, if the blood circulation hole short bowel perforation can cause this and produce a peritonitis (inflammation of the membrane lining the abdominal wall and abdominal organs). The treatment consists of umbilical hernia operation, which can be open or minimally invasive by laparoscopy. It involves the reintroduction into the abdomen and externalized part in reinforcing the wall that contains it with their own fabrics, mesh or prosthesis. ...
