PURPOSE PRKCDBP is a putative tumor suppressor in which alteration has been observed in several human cancers. We investigated expression and function of PRKCDBP in colorectal cells and tissues to explore its candidacy as a suppressor in colorectal tumorigenesis. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Expression and methylation status of PRKCDBP and its effect on tumor(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to develop an effective system for surgical site infection (SSI) surveillance and examine the current domestic state of SSIs for common abdominal surgeries in Korea. METHODS The Korean Surgical Site Infection Surveillance (KOSSIS) program was developed as an SSI surveillance system. A prospective multicenter study in nine(More)
Dear Sirs, A 53-year-old male underwent conventional transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) (using a combination of doxorubicin, lipiodol, and gelfoam) twice for treatment of multiple hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) at our institution. Several tumors were located in the right lobe of the liver. His past medical history was significant and included lung and(More)
AIM To study the clinical outcomes of medical therapy in patients with right colonic diverticulitis. METHODS The records of 189 patients with right colonic diverticulitis which was finally diagnosed by computed tomography, ultrasonography, or operative findings were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS Of the 189 patients hospitalized for right colonic(More)
We report the first case of single port laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for advanced colon cancer. An abdominal 3 cm length incision was made via the umbilicus. A small wound retractor and a surgical glove were used as a single port. All soft tissue anterior to the superior mesenteric vein was completely removed and D3 lymph node dissection was achieved.(More)
BACKGROUND We describe a technique of intracorporeal rectal transection using an endo-Satinsky clamp during laparoscopic total mesorectal excision. METHODS We use an abdominal approach through 5 trocars. The rectum and mesorectum are mobilized completely. A flexible trocar is placed at the site of a 12-mm right lower abdominal port after the trocar(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to identify the risk factors for surgical site infections (SSIs) in patients undergoing colorectal cancer surgery and to determine whether significantly different SSI rates existed between the short prophylactic antibiotic use group (within 24 hours) and the long prophylactic antibiotic use group (beyond 24 hours). METHODS The(More)
Single-port laparoscopic surgery has attracted attention in the field of minimally invasive colorectal surgery. We hypothesized that an experienced laparoscopic surgeon could perform single-port surgery for colon cancer eligible for conventional laparoscopic anterior resection. Our aim was to analyze our initial experience and immediate surgical outcomes of(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) fistulas are frequently very serious complications that are associated with high morbidity and mortality. GI fistulas can cause a wide array of pathophysiological effects by allowing abnormal diversion of the GI contents, including digestive fluid, water, electrolytes, and nutrients, from either one intestine to another or from the(More)
Granulocytic sarcoma (GS) is defined as a localized tumor mass composed of myeloid blasts and/or immature myeloid cells in an extramedullary site. Usually, GS occurs concomitantly with or after acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), myeloproliferative disorder, or myelodysplastic syndrome. In rare cases, it occurs as a “preleukemic” condition and may precede the(More)
