Abdominal wall hematoma is an uncommon cause of acute abdominal pain. We report a case of internal oblique hematoma caused by rupture of the subcostal artery in a 57-year-old woman. Ultrasonography (US) showed a hypoechoic mass in the right lateral abdominal wall. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) showed a large soft tissue mass with extravasation(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to evaluate the impact of body mass index (BMI) on the short- and long-term outcomes of hepatic resection in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS We performed 371 hepatic resections in HCC patients whom we categorized into two groups based on BMI: BMI ≥ 25 (n = 77) and BMI <25 (n = 294). We compared surgical outcomes(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine an effective treatment strategy for patients with Stage IV gastric cancer. We analyzed the significant prognostic factors in 74 patients who underwent surgery between 1989 and 2005, and were finally determined to have Stage IV gastric cancer. These patients were classified as curability A (n = 0), B (n = 29) and C(More)
To assess the role of femorofemoral or iliofemoral crossover bypass grafting, the early and late results of crossover bypasses were reviewed and compared with those of anatomic bypasses. The clinical records of 164 patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans who underwent 99 crossover bypasses and 65 anatomic ones from 1982 to 2002 were retrospectively(More)
Long-term dialysis often causes physiological and metabolic problems that may affect the outcomes of surgery. The aim of this study was to elucidate whether emergency surgery for acute abdomen yields similar outcomes in dialysis patients versus non-dialysis patients. The subjects were 126 patients who underwent emergency surgery for acute abdomen between(More)
There seemed to be characteristic risk factors in cirrhotic patients for posthepatectomy complications because these patients have less hepatic reserve as compared with noncirrhotic patients. The aim of the current study was to identify these characteristic risk factors in cirrhotic patients. We performed 419 primary hepatectomies for hepatocellular(More)
A-89-year-old male patient who complained dry cough was detected lung mass of 3 cm size in diameter at the right upper lobe by CT. FDG-PET seemed to show hilar and mediastinum lymph nodes metastasis. After three weeks, the mass showed rapid growth with 5 cm diameter in size at CT. Therefore the original tumor was supposed to be undifferentiated carcinoma,(More)
UNLABELLED Abstract. BACKGROUND A significant proportion of autogenous vein grafts fail in the long term. Currently, there is no treatment to improve graft patency. OBJECTIVE This study was designed to assess the effectiveness of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) to prevent late failure of an autogenous vein graft and other perioperative risk factors(More)
OBJECTIVE We clarified the characteristics of the high energy trauma patients that entered the general surgery ward of Fukuoka city hospital (FCH), a 200 bed secondary emergency hospital in Japan. PATIENTS AND METHODS Of the 7,826 total ambulance cases treated from April 2008 to March 2012 in our emergency room, 831 trauma patients who entered our(More)
INTRODUCTION Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disease characterized by a low platelet count and normal bone marrow. Patients with ITP undergoing surgery are thought to have increased risk for postoperative complications because of their thrombocytopenia. PRESENTATION OF CASE we report the case of a 66-year-old woman with ITP who(More)
