From 1969 through 1984, 304 case of early gastric cancer (EGC) were resected. Nodal status was studied in 272 cases in which lymph node dissection was performed. The lymph nodes were negative for metastasis in 90% of the cases. In 7%, metastasis was noted in the Group 1 lymph nodes alone and in 3%, as far as the Group 2 nodes. But in no case were the Group(More)
Three hundred and seventy-four cases of early gastric cancer in which invasion was limited to within the submucosa have been resected in our hospital during the past 15 years. The incidence of early gastric cancer was 31% among the total of 1,214 cases of gastric cancer operated on. There were 37 cases with multiple lesions and 5 cases with insufficient(More)
Between 1972 and 1984, a total of 848 patients underwent gastrectomies for gastric cancer. One hundred and thirty-nine patients (16%) were aged 70 and over (elderly group), the remaining 709 being under 70 (control group). The operative morbidity and mortality rates were 29.5% and 4.3% in the elderly group, as compared with 23.0% and 1.8% in the controls.(More)
From January 1979 through December 1986, 239 patients underwent total gastrectomy for gastric cancer. In 94 patients esophagojejunostomy was performed with the EEA stapler and in 145 patients hand sutures were employed. Operating time (mean +/- SD) was 288 +/- 60 minutes in the stapled group and 306 +/- 75 minutes in the sutured group (p less than 0.05).(More)
Of 1,211 gastric cancer patients who underwent operations, 196 (16%) had cancers extending to the adjacent organs. Palliative procedures were performed in 66 (34%), and gastrectomies in 130 (66%). Operative mortality for the former was 6% (4/66), but was 0% for the latter. Among 130 gastrectomized patients 91 (70%) underwent combined resections of the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Either straight Roux-en-Y anastomosis or jejunal interposition used to be adopted following total gastrectomy. However, dissatisfaction with regard to postoperative quality of life has prompted the development of new techniques. The purpose of this study is to describe and assess the authors' technical devices in jejunal pouch (J-pouch)(More)
A questionnaire on health and daily life was mailed to patients who had undergone gastrectomy between 1976 and 1985. Replies came from 66 patients aged 70 and over at the time of operation (the elderly group), and 189 who were under 70 at the time of the questionnaire (the controls). Fifty-two percent of the elderly group were under medical treatment,(More)
A retrospective study was made on 51 patients with recurrent gastric cancer following partial or subtotal gastrectomies during the past 17 years. Thirteen patients (25.5%) underwent resection of recurrent lesions, of which 12 were total resection of gastric remnant with combined removal of the distal pancreas, spleen, transverse colon and/or a part of the(More)
Among 675 patients who had undergone curative resection of gastric cancer during last 13 years, 113 died of cancer recurrence. One hundred and forty-five patients who had survived longer than 5 years were used as controls. In the recurrence group, the primary lesion was larger and the lymph node metastasis more common as compared with the surviving(More)
A 42-year-old man with cardiac lipoma of the anterior tricuspid leaflet is reported. He had a chief complaint of epigastric discomfort, and a pansystolic murmur was heard at the left sternal border in the 4th intercostal space. Two-dimensional echocardiography disclosed a mobile high density stalkless mass having several areas of low density.(More)
