UNLABELLED A 58-year-old woman presented with a solitary myofibroma that arose in the sigmoid colon. Computed tomography revealed a highly enhanced intramural mass (1.3-cm maximum diameter) in the proximal sigmoid colon. Histologically, the tumor exhibited a biphasic growth pattern, which comprised haphazardly arranged, interwoven fascicles of plump,(More)
Sessile serrated adenoma/polyps (SSA/Ps) usually appear flat to sessile with a smooth-appearing surface. However, macroscopic appearances of SSA/P can vary from flat-elevated to nodular and can even show a pedunculated configuration as we previously reported. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the clinicopathologic features of another(More)
BACKGROUND Ectopic crypts, defined as abnormally positioned crypts that have lost their orientation toward the muscularis mucosae, have been suggested to be the best defining histologic feature of traditional serrated adenoma (TSA). However, the significance of ectopic crypt formation (ECF) in the distinction between TSA and conventional adenoma (CA) has(More)
cision is closely associated with postoperative wound pain [9]. The single umbilical incisions reported in other studies typically reached lengths of 15 to 20 mm. Although postoperative pain has not been a major concern since the introduction of the routine laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), supporters of a single-incision LC (SILC) advocate the hypothesis(More)
