Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) developing in the colon are rare, accounting for <5 % of all GISTs. There are few data on the clinical efficacy of tyrosine kinase inhibitors in colonic GISTs. We report here on an 80-year-old male patient with advanced GIST of the transverse colon. The patient underwent palliative resection of the primary tumor(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional techniques for laparoscopic-assisted colectomy (LAC) require abdominal minilaparotomy for extraction of the specimen. Abdominal wound complications often increase the invasiveness of LAC. To decrease the incidence of wound complications, natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE) has been reported. However, only a few devices that(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to examine the safety and antitumor effects of a combination of S-1 and paclitaxel in patients with unresectable or recurrent gastric cancer in a phase I/II setting. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study was designed as a phase I/II clinical trial. In phase I portion, the dose of paclitaxel was escalated to estimate the maximum-tolerated dose(More)
Spontaneous perforation of the extrahepatic bile duct is rare. We herein report the case of an 80-year-old woman who underwent emergency laparotomy for bile peritonitis due to a spontaneous perforation of the common bile duct. A 2-mm perforation was found in the posterior wall of the choledochus, and its wall was paper-thin. Three stones, 2 mm in diameter,(More)
BACKGROUND Natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE) has been developed as a means of decreasing the incidence of surgical wound complications. However, NOSE performed using a conventional multiport technique has been reported previously. The current authors performed totally laparoscopic anterior resection with transvaginal specimen extraction (TVSE)(More)
A case of early gastric cancer, limited to submucosal layer, which was manifested as cerebral metastasis is presented herein. A 47-year-old man was admitted to Nagaoka Chuo General Hospital with convulsions and a disturbance in consciousness, where a computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a cerebral tumor in the left temporal lobe. The resected tumor was(More)
We have experienced successful treatment of a multiple hepatic metastasis of rectal cancer with combination chemotherapy. The patient is a 57-year-old male with bowel obstruction accompanied by rectal cancer (SE, N3, P1, H3, M (-) stage IV) who underwent a Hartmann operation with D3 lymph node dissection on July 6, 2000. The histopathological findings(More)
We report a case of hyperammonemic encephalopathy related to 5-FU in an aged patient with recurrent colon cancer treated with FOLFIRI therapy. An 80-year-old man underwent right hemicolectomy for cecal cancer. After 10 months, surgical resection was performed for its local recurrence. He was then treated with FOLFIRI therapy, and during the fifth course, he(More)
The patient was a 62-year-old man with bowel obstruction in a locally advanced rectal cancer. Computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen showed tumor enlargement(11.4 × 9.0 cm)that invaded the urinary bladder, but no distant metastasis. XELOX therapy was planned in order to shrink or eliminate the tumor after a sigmoid colostomy. Four courses of XELOX(More)
