CD24, a mucin like cell surface adhesion molecule and a ligand for P-selectin, has been reported as a prognostic factor in a variety of human cancers. However, the role of CD24 in gastric adenocarcinoma remains largely unknown. The expression pattern of CD24 in 103 gastric adenocarcinomas (31 diffuse type, 60 intestinal type, and 12 mixed type) was analyzed(More)
Appropriate management of cystic lesions of the pancreas is controversial. Major pancreatectomies (pancreaticoduodenectomy or distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy) are the commonly used procedures, even though most cystic lesions are noninvasive neoplasms. We tested the adequacy of limited pancreatectomies in the treatment of pancreatic cystic lesions.(More)
Spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy with excision of splenic vessels (SPDP-ESV) has been widely adopted because of its simplicity. However, this simplified technique may lead to gastric varices and bleeding. For better understanding of the hemodynamic changes and risk of gastric variceal bleeding, we instituted a prospective study to perform serial(More)
Robotic hepatectomy has been suggested to be a safe and effective approach for liver disease; however, studies comparing robotic hepatectomy with the conventional open approach regarding oncologic outcomes for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are limited. Accordingly, we performed a matched comparison of surgical and oncological outcomes between robotic and(More)
To determine the prognostic factors that predict recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) exceeding the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) criteria after primary resection. HCC patients who underwent curative liver resections between 2001 and 2007 and who were within the UCSF criteria (n = 716) were examined. Independent prognostic factors(More)
Carcinoid tumors are a group of heterogeneous tumors with neuroendocrine differentiation and are mainly located in the gastrointestinal tract. A high frequency of cytoplasmic accumulation and/or nuclear translocation of β-catenin with frequent mutations of exon 3 of β-catenin gene in gastrointestinal carcinoid tumor has been previously described, but the(More)
We compared the long-term outcomes of resection and transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) while satisfying the University of California at San Francisco criteria. HCC patients who underwent liver resection (n = 746) and transplantation (n = 54) between 2001 and 2007 were reviewed. Overall and disease-free survival rates were evaluated using the(More)
