Indications for minimal invasive surgery are increasingly numerous. The treatment of oesophageal cancer presents a significant example. New multidisciplinary modalities allow, from now on, to push back the limits and to improve the results of hepatobiliary surgery. Several studies show a decrease in the significance of age but underline the importance of comorbodities among elderly patients, and therefore significantly increase indications to pancreatic, hepatic or colorectal surgery in this age group. Elective laparoscopy is now accepted without age limit. Sacral nerve stimulation is an important alternative to classical treatment of fecal incontinence. Peripheral transcutaneous neuromodulation for this condition is effective on both continence and quality of life.
