Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) with extended lymph node dissection has not yet been widely adopted for the treatment of gastric cancers because of the perceived complexity of the procedure. Suprapancreatic lymph node dissection is one of the most important and demanding procedures in this approach. The techniques of duodenal transection(More)
BACKGROUND Some patients undergoing endoscopic resection for early gastric cancer need further surgical treatment to achieve cure. However, the influence of endoscopic resection on subsequent laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) remains unclear. METHODS A total of 711 patients who underwent LAG were analysed retrospectively; 111 patients had undergone(More)
Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) has not yet been widely adopted for the treatment of gastric cancers because of the perceived complexity of the procedure. In addition to the proficiency of the operator, other factors could potentially be optimized to improve postoperative outcomes. The aim of this study was to evaluate a standardized(More)
Checking bowel viability is difficult but important during surgery for ischemic bowel disease or jejunal autotransplantation. We investigated the effectiveness of two-wavelength near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to quantify tissue oxygen saturation (StO2), which can affect bowel viability during reconstruction of the cervical esophagus using a free jejunal(More)
BACKGROUND It has not previously been reported that WBC-reduced RBC preparations can cause transfusion-associated GVHD, even in an immunocompetent individual. CASE REPORT A 74-year-old man suffered a hemorrhage from the mesentery of the transverse colon after a traffic accident. During surgery, he received 10 units of RBCs from 10 donors in a solution(More)
Recent advances in chemotherapy and chemoradiation therapy for colorectal cancer have made neoadjuvant treatment an eligible therapeutic option for selected cases of marginally resectable colorectal cancer. However, marginally resectable colorectal cancer is not well defined. The authors suggest that a primary lesion is marginally resectable if extended(More)
