With technical advances in endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), several variations of endoscopic procedure derived from ESD and fusion procedures of endoscopy and laparoscopy for upper gastrointestinal submucosal tumor and cancer have recently been developed. The former includes endoscopic muscularis dissection (EMD), submucosal endoscopic tumor(More)
A 54-year-old man had a 65-mm infrapapillary, circular, and laterally spreading tubular adenoma in the distal second and proximal third parts of the duodenum. The papilla was 15 mm from the proximal margin of the tumor. Because the patient requested organ-preserving laparoscopic surgery, we conducted laparoscopy-assisted pancreas-sparing duodenectomy(More)
INTRODUCTION Transduodenal excision (transduodenal submucosal dissection) is an alternative to pancreaticoduodenectomy for the treatment of benign and low-grade malignant tumors of the duodenum. However, laparoscopic transduodenal excision or laparoscopy-assisted transduodenal excision (LATDE) of such tumors has been rarely reported. In this paper, we(More)
BACKGROUND Which graft material is the optimal graft material for the treatment of infected aortic aneurysms and aortic graft infections is still a matter of controversy. Orthotopic aortic reconstruction with intraoperatively prepared xenopericardial roll grafts without omentopexy was performed as the "initial" operation to treat aortic infection or as a(More)
INTRODUCTION Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) with ulceration may potentially disseminate into the peritoneal cavity after laparoscopic local wedge resection (full-thickness resection) when the intestinal wall is opened under the aeroperitoneum. To prevent this intraoperative tumor seeding, we developed laparoscopy-assisted full-thickness resection(More)
UNLABELLED Paraesophageal hiatal hernia (PHH), accounting for only 5% of all hiatal hernias, may result in potentially life threatening complications such as obstruction, acute dilatation, perforation, or bleeding of the gastric mucosa. It is traditionally believed that PHH is an indication for surgery. The repair of paraesophageal hernia is technically(More)
The purpose of this study was to establish a pathological quantitative method for determining the undifferentiated components ratio (UCR) in patients with differentiated/undifferentiated mixed-type (Mixed-type) early gastric cancer (EGC) and to examine the clinical significance. The subjects were 410 patients who underwent surgical resection for EGC with(More)
