AIM To evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) using a reverse-"V" approach with four ports. METHODS This is a retrospective study of selected patients who underwent LPD at our center between April 2011 and April 2012. The following data were collected and reviewed: patient characteristics, tumor(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatic angiomyolipoma is a rare mesenchyme-derived neoplasm often misdiagnosed as hepatocellular carcinoma, and the treatment for it remains controversial. AIMS To develop the optimal preoperative diagnoses means and treatment modalities of hepatic angiomyolipoma. METHODS Retrospective analysis of the clinical features, treatment, and(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of replication-incompetent adenovirus vector expressing MDA-7/IL-24 on tumor growth and apoptosis in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell line HepG2 and normal liver cell line L02. METHODS We constructed the recombinant replication-incompetent Ad.mda-7 virus vector and infected it into the human HCC cell line HepG2 and(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to report our experience with the treatment of remnant intrapancreatic choledochal cysts (CCs) in adults. METHODS We reviewed retrospectively the records of patients with intrapancreatic remnant CCs who underwent reoperation by our surgical team from January 2000 to December 2012. Postoperative complications,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignancies, and liver metastasis is one of the major causes of death of CRC. This study aimed to compare the genetic difference between metachronous lesions (MC) and synchronous lesions (SC) and explore the molecular pathology of CRC metastasis. METHODOLOGY Microarray expression profile(More)
To determine the causes underlying the formation of adult choledochal cyst.Anomalous pancreaticobiliary junction is the most widely accepted theory regarding the etiology of choledochal cyst. However, choledochal cysts have been found in patients in the absence of this anomaly. Because the number of adult patients with choledochal cyst is increasing, it is(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Our purpose was to evaluate the reasons for reoperations and outcomes in patients with choledochal cysts (CCs). METHODS The records of patients with CCs who underwent reoperations from 1995 to 2012 were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS Of 165 patients with a mean age of 42.54 ± 14.05 years, 62 had Todani type I (37.6 %), 84 type IV-A(More)
BACKGROUND Extrahepatic cyst excision and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy is not satisfactory in many patients with complex Todani type IV-A choledochal cysts. AIMS To report the results of combined extrahepatic cyst excision, partial hepatectomy, and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy for type IV-A choledochal cysts. METHODS The records of patients who(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to compare laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and simultaneous laparoscopic transcystic common bile duct exploration (LTCBDE) using an ultrathin choledochoscope with LC followed by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERC) and endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) when indicated. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of(More)
Background. Our purpose was to investigate the association between the surgical approach for Todani type IV cysts and subsequent malignancy rate. Methods. The records of patients who received cyst excision from 1994 to 2013 were analyzed retrospectively for the following data: demographics, presenting symptoms, postoperative outcomes, malignant(More)
