INTRODUCTION The feasibility, safety and oncological outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for transverse and descending colon cancers in a community hospital setting were evaluated. METHODS Twenty-six patients with transverse or descending colon cancers who underwent laparoscopic surgery at our hospital were included in this retrospective analysis (group A).(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Similar oncological outcomes of laparoscopic and open surgery for advanced colon cancer have been reported by several large-scale studies. Whether those results are applicable to community hospitals is questionable. METHODOLOGY From January 2007 to December 2010, 95 patients with colon cancer underwent laparoscopic surgery at Seirei(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the incidence rate and clinical features of second primary pancreatic ductal carcinoma (SPPDC) in the remnant pancreas after pancreatectomy for pancreatic ductal carcinoma (PDC). METHODS Data of patients undergoing R0 resection for PDC at a single high-volume center were reviewed. SPPDC was defined as a(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) often infiltrates to the adjacent major vasculatures; however, direct invasion of PDAC to the inferior vena cava (IVC) is uncommon. CASE PRESENTATION We report our experience with three cases of PDAC directly invading the IVC wall. All three patients underwent pancreatoduodenectomy along with wedge(More)
A 66-year-old woman presented to the Department of Gynecology in our institution in 2005 with peritoneal recurrence of ovarian fibrosarcoma. Originally, combined modality therapy including repeated surgical resection and somatic chemotherapy was performed. A peritoneal recurrence was found near the pancreatic head. She was referred to our department in(More)
BACKGROUND Iso- or hypo-attenuating areas in the arterial phase on contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CE-CT) have been reported to be negative prognostic features in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Given that the optimal indication for lymph node dissection in patients with PNET remains unclear, we sought to utilize enhancement characteristics(More)
A 44-year-old woman underwent surgical resection and received preoperative and postoperative chemotherapy for conventional osteosarcoma in the right fibular head. Three years later, follow-up PET-CT revealed accumulation ofFDG in the tail ofthe pancreas. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed a 13mm well-circumscribed hypovascular tumor. EUS showed a(More)
BACKGROUND Elevations in blood lactate levels have been associated with poor postoperative outcome. The aim of the present study was to determine if preoperative supplementation with branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) decreases postoperative blood lactate levels in patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy. METHODS The cases of 223 consecutive patients who(More)
We report a case of an internal hernia through a transverse mesocolon defect after laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy. The patient was a 58-year-old man with an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of the pancreatic body who underwent laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy. During surgery, an approximately 5-cm defect in the transverse mesocolon was(More)
We report a case of breast cancer with severe respiratory dysfunction due to multiple lung metastases, which was recovered by treatment with weekly trastuzumab administration. A 47-year-old woman with breast cancer had received a folk remedy from a general practitioner for 4 years. However, she was delivered to a hospital because of severe dyspnea, and(More)
