The aim of this paper is to assess the usefulness of sentinel lymph node navigation for laparoscopic gastrectomy. The standard lymph node dissection for gastric cancer is a D2 dissection. D2 dissection and sentinel lymph node biopsy can be performed with laparoscopic gastrectomy as well as with open surgery. Sentinel lymph node navigation surgery for(More)
Bone marrow transplant (BMT) recipients have risk factors for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) including venous stasis caused by immobilization in the sterile unit, vessel wall damage caused by preparative regimen or indwelling catheters, and hypercoagulability caused by decreased natural anticoagulants. We successfully treated a patient who developed massive DVT(More)
Previous studies from Western countries have shown similar survival outcomes after both open and laparoscopic resections. In Japan, radical D3 dissections performed by open resection have been routinely performed for ≥T2- or ≥N1-stage cancers, and relatively favorable survival outcomes were obtained. This study compared the survival in patients with Stage(More)
We report a rare case of a solitary metachronous metastasis of renal clear cell carcinoma (RCC) presenting as a thyroid tumor 19 years after a nephrectomy. Our search of the English-language literature found only sporadic reports of late RCC metastases to the thyroid. Fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the thyroid tumor was not accompanied with thyroglobulin(More)
It is well known that squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus can be associated with carcinoma of other organs. We report herein the rare case of a 60-year-old man who developed sychronous bilateral lung cancers after undergoing esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. Staged bilateral lobectomy was successfully performed to minimize respiratory complications(More)
We report the successful management of multiple small-bowel perforations caused by cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in a 60-year-old man, 1 day after CHOP (cyclophosphamide/doxorubicin/vincristine/prednisone) therapy induction for malignant lymphoma. Emergency laparotomy was performed for perforative peritonitis, but we did not resect the lesions at this(More)
INTRODUCTION Chylorrhea is a form of lymphorrhea involving digested lipid products absorbed in the small intestine. Here we report a rare case of chylorrhea after laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) with D1+ dissection that resolved following administration of a low-fat diet. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 35-year-old woman with early gastric cancer(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS We investigated whether sentinel lymph node biopsy using dye technique alone is useful or not in decision-making for less invasive surgery in patients with gastric cancer. METHODOLOGY The subjects were 43 patients who had undergone laparotomy for gastric cancer and consented to undergo sentinel lymph node biopsy using patent blue dye. The(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS We previously investigated the effects of amoxicillin/omeprazole combined therapy on patients who were Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) positive after gastrectomy for the treatment of gastric cancer, and we determined the difference in amoxicillin dosage between the therapeutic successes and failures. In the present study, assuming that(More)
