  • In the filed of Dentistry, minimally invasive treatment modalities are new trend for conservation of natural teeth. Of them, laminate veneer and resin bonded fixed partial denture belong to restoration procedures. In this review, survival rates of each modalities and cause of unserviceability are analyzed, and criteria for success are presented. To get successful results of minimally invasive restoration, plenty of enamel layer, thin and strong materials, and high bonding strength are essential under cyclically loaded wet oral condition. Newly tried design of minimally invasive technique nowadays have to be evaluated only on the basis of requirement for long-term success.

  • Aim: To investigate the efficacy and safety of lobaplatin-transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) combined with radioactive $^{125}I$ seed implantation in treatment of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Methods: 75 patients with primary HCC were enrolled in the study, among them 43 receiving lobaplatin-TACE (TACE group) and 32 lobaplatin-TACE combined with $^{125}I$ seed implantation (TACE+$^{125}I$ group). After treatment, the local remission rates and postoperative complications of two groups were compared using the Pearson Chi-square test. Overall survival in the two groups was calculated using Kaplan-Meier survival curves and the differences were tested using Log-rank test. Results: There were 7 cases of complete response (CR), 13 of partial response (PR), 6 of stable disease (SD) and 17 of progressive disease (PD) in the TACE group, with 13 cases of CR, 9 of PR, 5 of SD and 5 of PD in the TACE+$^{125}I$ group. The disease control rates of TACE and TACE+$^{125}I$ group were 60.5% (26/43) and 84.4% (27/32), respectively, with a significant difference between them (P < 0.05). The survival rates at 6, 12 and 18 months in the TACE group were 100.0%, 81.8% and 50.0%, respectively, and those in TACE+$^{125}I$ group were 100.0%, 93.8% and 65.6%. The mean survival times in the TACE and TACE+$^{125}I$ groups were 19.5 and 22.9 months, respectively. There was a significant difference in the overall survival rate between two groups (P < 0.05). No serious complications were encountered in either group. Conclusion: Lobaplatin-TACE combined with $^{125}I$ seed implantation is favorable and safe for treatment of primary HCC.

  • Purpose: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of the minimally invasive posterior approach for the surgical treatment of intraarticular fracture of calcaneus. Materials and Methods: From March 2006 to October 2008, we studied retrospectively 45 patients, 56 cases who were treated with minimally invasive reduction and pin fixation treatment for displaced intraarticular calcaneal fracture and were followed up for more than 1 year. The clinical results were evaluated with Creighton-Nebraska score and AOFAS score, circle draw test after 1 year. We checked simple AP, lateral, axial and Broden's view preoperatively and 1 year after surgery, and compared Bohler angle and Gissane angle. Results: By Creighton-Nebraska score, Sanders type 1 was 81, type 2 was 75, type 3 was 69, type 4 was 61. By AOFAS score, Sanders type 1 was 88, type 2 was 82, type 3 was 78, type 4 was 63. And by circle draw test, type 1 was 8.8 cm, type 2 was 8.5 cm, type 3 was 8 cm, type 4 was 6.6 cm. Preoperative Bohler angle and Gissane angle were $7.2^{\circ}$, $98^{\circ}$, and it increased to $21.2^{\circ}$, $116^{\circ}$ after postoperative 1 year. Conclusion: Minimally invasive reduction and pin fixation treatment for displaced intraarticular calcaneal fracture was considered to be an effective treatment modality.

  • Percutaneous coronary intervention including intracoronary stenting is currently an accepted treatment modality in the treatment of coronary artery disease and is widely performed to treat the patient with multivessel disease with decreased morbidities and less cost compared with conventional coronary rtery bypass grafting(CABG), Repeated interventions due to restenosis even after successful angioplasty are the major disadvantage of the angioplsty especially when the lesion is located inthe left anterior descending artery(LAD) Recently CABG through left anterior small thoracotomy using the left internal thoracic artery to revascularize the LAD territory without cardiopulmonary bypass so called Minimally Invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass(MIDCAB) was intrduced and performed with comparable early outcomes. In this regard the integrated approach with percutaneous coronary intervention and minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass surgery so called 'Hybrid CABG' was suggested to be an effective treatment in suitable patients with multivessel coronary artery disease. We report three cases of Hybrid CABG.

  • Objective : Lumbar foraminal stenosis is an important etiology of lumbar radicular symptomatology and frequent causes of remained symptoms after decompressive surgery. This study was conducted to determine the precise clinical and radiologic diagnosis of lumbar foraminal stenosis, and to demonstrate thorough treatment by decompressive surgery using a minimally invasive technique. Methods : Seven patients with established unilateral lumbar foraminal stenosis according to clinical and radiologic diagnosis were retrospectively studied. All patients underwent combined interlaminar and paraisthmic procedure with partial facetectomy. The outcome of surgery was evaluated and classified into excellent, good, fair and poor. Results : The results were excellent in four patients, good in two, and fair in one during the follow-up. There were no surgery-related complications. Conclusion : Minimally invasive combined interlaminar and paraisthmic approach provides good outcome in carefully selected patients with symptomatic lumbar foraminal stenosis.

  • Background: We used an Abramson technique for minimally invasive repair of pectus carinatum in patients who preferred surgery to brace therapy, had been unsuccessfully treated via brace therapy, or were unsuitable for brace therapy because of a rigid chest wall. Methods: Between July 2011 and May 2015, 16 patients with pectus carinatum underwent minimally invasive surgery. Results: The mean age of the patients was $24.35{\pm}13.20years$ (range, 14-57 years), and all patients were male. The percentage of excellent aesthetic results, as rated by the patients, was 37.5%, and the percentage of good results was 56.25%. The preoperative and postoperative Haller Index values were $2.01{\pm}0.19$ (range, 1.60-2.31), and $2.22{\pm}0.19$ (range, 1.87-2.50), respectively (p-value=0.01), and the median hospital stay was $7.09{\pm}2.91days$ (range, 5-15 days). Only one patient experienced postoperative complications. Conclusion: Minimally invasive repair is effective for the treatment of pectus carinatum, even in adult patients.

  • Acute Achilles tendon rupture is a frequent injury during sports and recreational activities. Treatments for Achilles tendon rupture have been controversial in recent decades. Traditionally the surgical treatment had benefit over nonsurgical treatment in terms of low rerupture rate and early functional restoration. Recently, nonsurgical treatment was found to show no statistically significant inferiority in re-rupture rate, functional outcome, and calf strength. Whereas, surgical treatment had some complications including adhesion, nerve injury, and infection. Nonsurgical treatment has been increasing due to functional rehabilitation with early weight bearing and restricted early motion. It focuses more attention on the course of caring for patients with deep discussion. There are open repair and minimally invasive repair in terms of surgical treatment. There are various techniques for minimally invasive repair of Achilles tendon, which has some advantages over the open repair. However, the optimal technique for minimally invasive repair has not been established. The number of suture strands is important regardless of suture technique.

  • Various operative techniques are available for the treatment of craniosynostosis. The patient's age at presentation is one of the most important factors in the determination of the surgical modality. Minimally invasive suturectomy and postoperative helmet therapy may be performed for relatively young infants, whose age is younger than 6 months. It relies upon the potential for rapid brain growth in this age group. Its minimal invasiveness is also advantageous. In this article, we review the advantages and limitations of minimally invasive suturectomy followed by helmet therapy for the treatment of craniosynostosis.

  • Objective : To report a minimally invasive treatment option using percutaneous pedicle screw fixation with adjuvant treatment for metastatic thoraco-lumbar and lumbar spinal tumors. Methods : This is a retrospective study of charts of patients with spinal metastases. All were older than 18 years of age and were considered to have more than 3 months of life expectancy. The patients had single or two level lesions, and compression fracture or impending fracture. Exclusion criterion was metastasis showing severe epidural compression with definite neurological symptoms. Usually spinal segments from one level above to below pathology were stabilized. Visual analog scale (VAS) score for pain assessment and Frankel scale for neurological deficit were used, while pre- and post-operative performance status was evaluated using the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG). Results : Twelve patients (nine men, three women; median age 54.29 years) underwent surgery. All patients presented with back pain with/without radicular pain. There were no early complications and perioperative mortalities. Following surgery, a significant difference between average pre- and post-operative VAS scores was found (p=0.003). Overall, 91.8% of patients (11/12) experienced improvement in their ECOG score post-operatively. The mean ambulation time was 196.9 days [95% confidence interval (CI), 86.2-307.6 days; median, 97 days]. During follow-up, nine patients died and the mean overall survival time in enrolled twelve patients was 249.9 days (95% CI, 145.3-354.4 days; median, 176 days). Conclusion : Minimally invasive treatment using percutaneous pedicle screw fixation with adjuvant treatment is a good alternative treatment option for potential instability of the thoraco-lumbar and lumbar spinal metastasis.
