AIM Laparoscopic surgery, especially laparoscopic rectal surgery, for colorectal cancer has been developed considerably. However, due to relatively complicated anatomy and high requirements for surgery techniques, laparoscopic right colectomy develops relatively slowly. This study was designed to compare the outcomes of laparoscopic right hemicolectomy(More)
This study was designed to investigate the feasibility and technical strategies of laparoscopic complete mesocolic excision (CME) for right-hemi colon cancer. The clinical and pathological findings of 64 patients with right-hemi colon cancer who underwent laparoscopic CME between March 2010 and September 2011 were collected retrospectively. Among them, 35(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Elderly patients have a high incidence of colorectal cancer, which may be associated with increased morbidity and mortality due to complex comorbidity and diminished cardiopulmonary reserves. The aims of this study were to compare the outcomes of laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery with those observed in traditional open surgery in(More)
BACKGROUND Minimal access techniques have gained wide acceptance in surgical practice, but the role of laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy is still controversial. Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy has seldom been described. In this report, we assessed the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy for ductal adenocarcinoma of the(More)
To explore the feasibilities between operational approaches for laparoscopic complete mesocolic excision (CME) to right hemicolon cancer. This prospective randomized controlled trial included patients admitted to a Shanghai minimally invasive surgical center to receive laparoscopic CME from September 2011 to January 2013 randomized into two groups: hybrid(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the inflammatory response and acid-base equilibrium index, as well as other clinical facts of the endoscopic thyroidectomy via the anterior chest wall approach. METHODS Thirty-nine patients who received thyroidectomy in our surgical center during September 2007 and January 2008 were included in this study.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate laparoscopic gastric resection for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). METHODS From June, 2003 to October, 2009, 56 patients with gastric GIST who underwent laparoscopic gastric resection were retrospectively reviewed, and their surgical procedure, perioperative outcomes, pathology, and follow-up outcomes were analyzed. RESULTS(More)
This study aimed to assess the feasibility and long-term outcome of laparoscopic total mesorectal excision for middle and lower rectal cancer. Retrospective assessment was performed on 612 patients with middle and low rectal cancer in the surgery department of our hospital. Three-hundred and three patients underwent laparoscopic total mesorectal excision(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the cause of hemorrhage from the gallbladder bed during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHODS Color Doppler ultrasound was used to examine the cause of venous hemorrhage from the gallbladder bed during laparoscopic cholecystectomy in 1 patient postoperatively and to examine the anatomic relationship between the gallbladder bed and(More)
Metastasis remains to be one of the most prevalent causes leading to poor long-term survival of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. The clinical significances of tumor metastatic suppressor, N-myc downregulated gene 1 (NDRG1), have been inconsistently reported in a variety of cancerous diseases. In this study with 240 CRC clinical specimens, we showed that(More)
