BACKGROUND Smaller size grafts for living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) can enhance donor safety and expand donor availability. We previously reported that modulation of portal venous pressure (PVP) was key for successful LDLT with small grafts, and that it actively lowered graft-to-recipient weight ratio (GRWR) for adult-to-adult LDLT. This(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The timing of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) for acute cholecystitis (AC) remains controversial. Traditionally, LC for AC is performed within 3 days. We designed this study so that the cut-off time of LC for AC was within 7 days of admission, based on severity. METHODOLOGY A total of 103 patients were divided into 2 groups: patients(More)
INTRODUCTION Because splenic cysts are rare, a definitive treatment regime for these cysts remains unclear. We report a case of a large multilocular splenic cyst with elevated carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) levels, which was successfully treated with laparoscopic splenectomy. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 22-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with(More)
Prophylactic abdominal drainage is performed routinely after liver resection in many centers. The aim of this study was to examine the safety and validity of liver resection without abdominal drainage and to clarify whether routine abdominal drainage after liver resection is necessary. Patients who underwent elective liver resection without bilio-enteric(More)
A 65-year-old male with type 5 gastric cancer and two lesions of liver metastases was initially treated with S-1/CDDP. After completion of the second course, however, the progression of liver metastases and appearance of massive ascites were detected with CT scan, and dysphagia appeared. Total gastrectomy was performed to improve the symptoms. Later,(More)
We report on a large, retroperitoneal, malignant, solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) with high proliferation activity. A 43-year-old man was admitted to our department complaining of a palpable mass. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a large retroperitoneal tumor occupying the entire abdominal cavity. A laparotomy was(More)
A 72-year-old woman was diagnosed as Stage IV ascending colon cancer, with metastasis of lung and para-aortic lymph node. She received laparoscopic assisted right hemicolectomy for the local control. After the operation, we performed chemotherapy. We report a case of metastatic ascending colon cancer showing complete response(CR)to 3 courses of S-1/(More)
