BACKGROUND Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) is a common complication following left-sided hepatectomy. The goal of this study was to clarify the clinical implications of an omental flap wrapping procedure that includes fixation to the cut surface of the liver to reduce the incidence of DGE after left-sided hepatectomy. METHODS The study included 50(More)
OBJECTIVES The effect of adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) in extrahepatic bile duct (EHBD) cancer patients with microscopic-positive resection margins (R1 resection) is still controversial. METHODS Between January 2000 and March 2010, 52 patients with EHBD cancer underwent surgery at our institution, of whom 36 were subjected to a retrospective analysis.(More)
A 62 year-old man was admitted with the chief complaint of a epigastric pain and difficulty of swallowing.

At laparotomy, a localized tumor was detected beneath the serosa of the stomach. The excised tumor was 4 x(More)
AIM In cases of ampullary carcinoma, lymph node involvement affects the selection of treatment strategies. This study aimed to identify clinicopathologic features of ampullary carcinoma with lymph node metastases. METHODS The records of 74 consecutive patients with ampullary adenocarcinoma who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) with regional lymph(More)
A 35-year-old woman tuffering from gastric cancer associated with disseminated carcinomatosis of the bone marrow is reported. Total gastrectomy combined with splenectomy and distal pancreatectomy was performed. The patient was treated with mitomycin C, FT-207, OK-432, and PSK. But serum ALP (alkaline phosphatase) and CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen) values(More)
The efficacy of combined hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy and hyperthermia for unresectable hepatic tumors of colorectal cancer was retrospectively compared with hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy alone. Nine cases were treated with combination therapy and eight cases were treated with hepatic arterial infusion alone. The response rate in the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Similar oncological outcomes of laparoscopic and open surgery for advanced colon cancer have been reported by several large-scale studies. Whether those results are applicable to community hospitals is questionable. METHODOLOGY From January 2007 to December 2010, 95 patients with colon cancer underwent laparoscopic surgery at Seirei(More)
The typical treatment of choice for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) is surgical resection. Here we report a case of three GIST lesions resected safely by laparoscopic-endoscopic cooperative surgery (LECS). A 78-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for further treatment of an enlarging gastric submucosal tumor. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy and(More)
