We report an unusual case of a large solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) in the retroperitoneum. A 53-year-old man was referred to our hospital for surgical treatment of a swelling in the right flank with dull pain. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) and echograms showed a large encapsulated tumor compressing the right kidney and liver. At laparotomy, the tumor(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the most effective means of treating liver metastases from gastric cancer. We retrospectively examined 43 patients with liver metastases, but without peritoneal dissemination, who had received different forms of treatment. The crude 5-year survival rates of patients who underwent gastrectomy with complete(More)
A 75-year old man was detected with a pediculate tumor in the upper esophagus. A biopsy determined that it was an adenocarcinoma. A subtotal esophagectomy with dissection of three-fields of lymph nodes was selected. The pathological study revealed it to be an esophageal adenocarcinoma arising from ectopic gastric mucosa of the fundus of the stomach. His(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical significance of lymph node involvement along the recurrent laryngeal nerves in cancer of the thoracic esophagus is still controversial. Although these lymph nodes are anatomically located in a well-defined compartment (proximal mesoesophagus), appropriate procedures for dissecting them are not well established. STUDY DESIGN We(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES In carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus, most surgeons consider that esophagectomy is contraindicated in patients with clinical evidence of major extraesophageal involvement in the lower neck or peritracheal regions. However, metastases to these regions are commonly found even in early phases of carcinoma invasion. With recent(More)
Due to advanced gastric cancer with abdominal para-aortic lymph node metastases, we performed a curative operation in three cases in which S-1/CDDP combination therapy proved effective. In case 1, after only one course of this chemotherapy, the reduction of the primary lesion was slight, but para-aortic metastatic lymph nodes were remarkably reduced. We(More)
S-1 plus cisplatin is a standard regimen for advanced gastric cancer (AGC) in Asia. The ToGA trial established a fluoropyrimidine plus cisplatin and trastuzumab as a standard treatment for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive AGC. In the HERBIS-1 trial, trastuzumab combined with S-1 plus cisplatin showed promising antitumor activity in(More)
KEY CLINICAL MESSAGE The present case involved a 62-year-old male with a large left-sided inguinoscrotal hernia. A CT scan and a clinical examination led to a diagnosis of a giant left-sided Amyand's hernia. The hernia was repaired using the ULTRAPRO Hernia System (UHS), and the patient exhibited an uneventful postoperative course.
BACKGROUND Carcinoma and adenoma of the duodenum, including the papilla of Vater, are problematic diseases in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). CASE PRESENTATION A 36-year-old man underwent a periodic medical examination for early colon cancer originating from FAP for which laparoscopic-assisted subtotal colectomy with a J-shaped ileal(More)
We report the case of a 60-year-old woman with multiple lymph node metastases after ascending colon cancer who received radiation therapy and then chemotherapy with S-1. She was diagnosed with lymph node metastasis of the para aorta and left upper clavicle 10 months after surgery. We performed radiation therapy for the left upper clavicle (64 Gy)and para(More)
