Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and modified duodenal jejunal bypass (MDJB) were compared as procedures for glucose control. We aim to form the initial conclusions with respect to the possibility of (1) whether gastric fundus exclusion is essential for the control of diabetes and (2) application as a low morbidity procedure. SG and MDJB were performed on 10- to(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is known to be a preoperative risk factor for gastric cancer surgery. This study aimed to investigate the influence of obesity on the surgical outcomes of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) for gastric cancer. METHODS The clinical data of 131 patients with gastric cancer from January 2010-December 2013 were analyzed(More)
As a new surgical technique, extralevator abdominoperineal excision (eLAPE) is recommended for the treatment of low rectal cancer. The patient's position is changed to a prone jackknife position before extralevator excision is performed via the perineal approach. Whether the extralevator excision can be completed through a transabdominal route under(More)
BACKGROUND Several epidemiological surveys of allergic rhinitis (AR) have been conducted in China. However, the clinical features of AR are still not clear enough. The aim of the current study was to perform a multicenter investigation to evaluate the clinical features of AR in China. METHODS A multicenter investigation was performed in 13 allergy centers(More)
BACKGROUND The prognosis of early gastric cancer (EGC) with signet ring cell histology is more favorable than other undifferentiated gastric adenocarcinomas. An accurate assessment of potential lymph node metastasis is important for the appropriate treatment of EGC with signet ring cell histology. Therefore, this study analyzed the predictive factors(More)
BACKGROUND Standardized allergen-specific immunotherapy (SIT) has been used in China for years. However, there is no extensive study of the safety of standardized SIT in Chinese patients until now. The aim of the current study is to perform a prospective and multicenter study to evaluate the systemic reactions (SRs) of standardized SIT in Chinese patients.(More)
BACKGROUND Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangements define a subgroup of lung cancer which is eligible to targeted kinase inhibition. The aim of this study is to observe the incidence rate of ALK fusion in a large cohort of Chinese digestive tract cancer patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Tissue microarray (TMA) was constructed from 808 digestive tract(More)
BACKGROUND Bladder cancer (BC) is the fifth most common malignancy worldwide. The expression levels of microRNAs (miRNAs) in urine samples of BC patients have been demonstrated to be different from healthy people. Several studies focusing on the diagnostic value of urinary miRNAs for BC detection have been reported. The aim of this meta-analysis was to(More)
Ureteral injury is one of the major complications for rectal surgery. However, few studies focused on ureteral injuries from laparoscopic rectal surgery have been reported. Characteristics of this kind of ureteral injuries and the related reasons are unclear. This study was designed to illustrate the characteristics of ureteral injuries during the procedure(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to investigate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of triplet regimen of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced resectable colon cancer. METHODS Patients with clinical stage IIIb colon cancer received a perioperative triple chemotherapy regimen (oxaliplatin 85 mg/m2 and irinotecan 150 mg/m2, combined with(More)
