A man in his 30s visited our hospital after a local doctor diagnosed him with a rectal submucosal tumor. Colonoscopy and fine needle biopsy revealed a lower rectal gastrointestinal tumor (GIST). Pelvic MRI examination revealed apparent tumor invasion of the left levator ani muscle. Curative abdominoperineal resection( APR) of the tumor was required. Our(More)
With regard to laparoscopic and robotic abdominoperineal resection (APR) for primary rectal malignancies, limited data have been published in the literature. Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SLS) has been successfully introduced for treating colorectal cancer. Here we describe our experience of APR with SLS plus one port (SLS + 1) for treating advanced(More)
We prove the safety and feasibility of single-incision plus 1 port (SILS+1) laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME) + lateral pelvic lymph node dissection (LPLD) via a medial umbilical approach for rectal cancer. Only a few reports have been published about single-incision multiport laparoscopic low anterior resection with LPLD. Recently, minimally(More)
Our patient was a 67-year-old man, with a chief complaint of brown urine. He subsequently underwent medical examination in June. Because the results of his blood examination revealed liver dysfunction, he was admitted to our hospital for further careful examination. An abdominal computed tomography(CT) scan showed the presence of a pancreas tumor, with a(More)
We report a case of undifferentiated carcinoma of the duodenum. A 40-year-old man was referred to our hospital as he experienced upper abdominal pain that had persisted for half a year. Gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a semicircular tumor in the duodenum. Enhanced computed tomography( CT) revealed that the tumor had not invaded the adjacent tissues, and(More)
BACKGROUND Graft thrombosis is the main cause of early graft loss after transplantation. In Japan, pancreases available for transplantation are frequently from marginal donors due to diverse backgrounds in the population. However, marginal tissues increase the risk of early thrombosis in the graft. CASE REPORT Here, we describe a 41-year-old woman with type(More)
Surgeons are increasingly being faced with the challenge of treating elderly patients with colon cancer. The present study therefore aimed to compare the short-term outcomes of single-port laparoscopic surgery (SILS) for elderly patients with colon cancer (≥70 years) with those in younger patients (41-69 years; control group). Among 100 patients with(More)
A 75-year-old man with a complaint of right hypochondrial pain consulted our hospital, and was diagnosed as having acute cholecystitis. We performed percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD), and the cholecystitis resolved. However, obstructive jaundice occurred 2 weeks later. Thus, we performed an in-depth investigation and detected duodenal(More)
