Interruption of sedation due to a poor response to modified neuroleptanalgesia (m-NLA) with midazolam often occurs during endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) because most patients have a history of heavy alcohol intake. Recently, propofol has been used feasibly and safely during endoscopic procedures. The aim(More)
Objectives:Although endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is an efficient treatment for superficial esophageal cancer, it is associated with stricture formation after wide-circumference resection that leads to a low quality of life. Although locoregional steroid injections prevent stricture formation, a randomized comparative study did not report any(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Esophageal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) to resect widespread lesions has increased the incidence of strictures, and some patients develop strictures despite receiving prophylactic locoregional triamcinolone injections. The present study evaluated the predictive factors for esophageal stricture formation in patients given(More)

Diagnostic and staging laparotomy showed mucinous carcinoma of the right ovary. At one month after surgery, bone metastasis was detected via scintigraphy. On(More)
