[Mankind has suffered from the agony of gallstones for thousands of years. Until the second half of the last century, there was practically no cure, the only relief being spontaneous internal and external fistulas in the midst of great pain.]

Lege Artis Medicinae

[Laparoscopic surgery]

ANTAL András, BÁTFAI László, EZER Péter

[In the recent years abdominal surgery has developed quickly. Laparoscopic operating procedures have spread worldwide. These techniques have reached Hungary as well, though there are only few articles in this topic. Since last December - date of the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy – more than 200 operations have been done, among them the first appendectomy. These procedures are less troublesome for the patients with better cosmetic results, and the shorter period of hospitalisation and unability for work make economical advantages. First, the technical instruments and their usage, then personal coditions and the preparation programme are described. In the second part the usage of the new technique is summarized in cholecystectomy as well as in appendectomy. ]

[Renal cell carcinoma in a horseshoe kidney treated with radical nephrectomy]

SZENTGYÖRGYI Ervin, KONDÁS József, KONDÉR Gyula

[A horseshoe kidney is diagnosed usually after the onset of its complication or the symptoms caused by an arising tumor from it. A tumour was diagnosed in the right half of the horseshoe kidney in a 68 year old female patient by excretory urography, ultrasound examination and renovasography. The tumour was removed by radical nephrectomy. The kidney was exposed through a horizontal abdominal approach. Special attention was given to the separate renal arteries supplying the right half of the horseshoe kidney and to the resection of the isthmus and also regional lymphadenectomy. In the diagnosis of a horseshoe kidney excretion urography had exclusively been used earlier but nowadays ultrasound is playing an increasingly important role. Reno vasography is usually needed only before resection or nephrectomy. The appropriate treatment of a horseshoe kidney tumour - in case of a well functioning contralateral kidney - is radical ablastic tumour nephrectomy including regional lymphadenectomy. ]

[The present and future of external fixation]

CIFFER Endre

[The author details the main indications of external fixstion, as well as the professional and socioeconomic causes of recent trends. He also describes the management of extremity injuries in wartime. There is an emphasis of attainment and maintenance of transportability of the injured. For the first fixation procedure external fixation, plaster or their combination should be applied. The author's new method combines the use disposable and the sophisticated dynamic axial fixation device that can be attached onto the same common pin system. The cheap disposable device is applied for the time of the transportation and is replaced later with the definitive device later if needed. The new Manuflex Maxi single use fixators are cost effective and can be used with good results even in peace time surgery. It has shown excellent biomechanical characteristics compared to Orthofix.]

[Unfortunately, the question asked in September last year whether the planned health care reform could be implemented within the current framework of the Health Care System (2) has not received many positive answers in the past. I would like to contribute to the dialogue proposed by the Minister with the ideas presented here.]
