OBJECTIVE The objective was to assess the diagnostic performance of 64-multidetector computed tomography (CT) for blunt small bowel perforation (BSBP). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 106 CT examinations of surgically proven blunt bowel and mesentery injuries (78 of BSBP and 28 of non-BSBP). CT diagnosis was based on detection of bowel wall(More)
Multiple jejunalgastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) were found in a 52-year-old woman with a history of neurofibromatosis type 1. These tumors were composed of interlacing fascicles of uniform spindle cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for CD117, CD34 and negative for S-100, smooth muscle actin.(More)
PURPOSE The performance of 2-deoxy-2-[(18)F]fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) has been not established for the evaluation of recurrent colorectal cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of FDG PET/CT in postoperative colorectal cancer patients with normal carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to observe the clinical features of a bezoar-induced small bowel obstruction and to investigate the role of abdominal computed tomography (CT) in establishing the diagnosis. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 20 cases of bezoar-induced small bowel obstruction in our hospital from 1996 to 2010. RESULTS Thirteen patients(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and spectrum of malignant tumors in Korean neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) patients. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 125 patients who were diagnosed with NF1 at a single institution from 1995 to 2010. The incidence, location, histologic type, and radiologic findings of malignant tumors as(More)
PURPOSE Surgical site infection (SSI) is one of the most common complications that can occur after stoma closure. Reports have described differences in the incidence of wound infection depending on the skin closure technique, but there is no consensus on the ideal closure technique for a stoma wound. The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of SSI(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine 2-year follow-up results of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC) for peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) of colorectal cancer. METHODS We performed 54 cases of CRS and IPC in 53 patients with PC of colorectal cancer from December 2011 to December 2013. We collected data(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy combining 5-flurouracil/folinic acid with irinotecan (FOLFIRI) in colorectal multiple liver metastases regardless of resectability. METHODS Forty-four patients with multiple (at least two) colorectal liver metastases were enrolled at seven tertiary referral hospitals between May 2007(More)
PURPOSE Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) have a negative impact on patients' quality of life and frequently pointed to as a major factor for treatment abandonment. Serotonin (5-HT3) receptor antagonist is considered as key treatment for CINV. Ramosetron and palonosetron are recently developed 5-HT3 receptor antagonists and known as more(More)
