An index for estimating the probability of lymph node metastasis in rectal cancers. Lymph node metastasis and the histopathology of actively invasive regions of cancer
TLDR
The degree of budding, which was abundant in the actively in asive region, showed a strong correlation with the degree of ly and the existence of n in the resected specimens, implying that the level of budding in theactively invasive region can be a great help in predicting the presence of n. Expand
Induction of cellular immune responses to tumor cells and peptides in colorectal cancer patients by vaccination with SART3 peptides.
TLDR
Significant levels of increased cellular immune responses to both HLA-A24+ colon cancer cells and the vaccinated peptide were observed in the postvaccination peripheral blood mononuclear cells in 7 of 11 and 7 of 10 patients tested, respectively, and the higher responses were seen in those patients vaccinated with the highest dose (3 mg/injection) of the peptides.

Distal spread of rectal cancer and optimal distal margin of resection for sphincter‐preserving surgery
TLDR
This study was designed to examine distal rectal spread of rectal carcinoma and to determine the optimal distal margin of resection for sphincter‐preserving surgery. Expand
Surgical treatment for patients with pulmonary metastases after resection of primary colorectal carcinoma
TLDR
The optimum treatment for patients with pulmonary metastases from colorectal carcinoma is still controversial and further research is needed to determine the best treatment strategy. Expand
A prospective clinicopathologic study of venous invasion in colorectal cancer.
TLDR
It appears that the degree and location of venous invasion influence not only hepatic metastasis, local recurrence, and survival rates but also have prognostic value. Expand
The usefulness of restorative laparoscopic-assisted total colectomy for ulcerative colitis.
TLDR
It is indicated that laparoscopic-assisted total colectomy improved cosmetic results and to be a safe and effective treatment for the elective surgery of ulcerative colitis. Expand
Evaluation of endorectal ultrasound for the assessment of wall invasion of rectal cancer
TLDR
This study indicated that a cause of the overestimation was inflammatory cell infiltration around cancer, and that one possible cause of underestimation was microscopically minimal invasion of cancer. Expand
Total pelvic exenteration for locally advanced colorectal carcinoma
TLDR
Total pelvic exenteration is warranted for patients with stage II locally advanced colorectal carcinoma and is an option for those with recurrent carcinoma when performed with curvative intent. Expand
Phase II study of oral S‐1 for treatment of metastatic colorectal carcinoma
TLDR
The objective response rate and toxicity associated with the oral fluoropyrimidine S‐1 (a combination of tegafur, 5‐chloro‐2,4‐dihydroxypyridine, and potassium oxonate) in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal carcinoma was evaluated. Expand
Clinical aspects of total colectomy--laparoscopic versus open technique for familial adenomatous polyposis and ulcerative colitis.
TLDR
Laroscopy combined total colectomy may prove to have one-stage restorative total coLECTomy without a temporary ileostomy due to early solidification of watery stool and more benefits than conventional open surgery. Expand
