BACKGROUND We performed a prospective, multicenter, randomized controlled study to investigate the clinical outcomes, including postoperative pancreatic fistulas (POPF), after using the TachoSil® patch in distal pancreatectomy (NCT01550406). METHODS Between June 2012 and September 2014, 101 patients at five centers were randomized into Control (n = 53)(More)
Despite aggressive surgical resection, prognosis of patients with hilar cholangiocarcinoma is still unsatisfactory. There were limited data about actual long-term survival outcome. This study was designed to explore actual long-term survival outcome of hilar cholangiocarcinoma after surgical treatment, and to investigate the characteristics of patients with(More)
Laparoscopic hepatectomy for intrahepatic duct (IHD) stones is limited by technical difficulties caused by adhesion to adjacent tissue or distorted anatomy resulting from recurrent inflammation. This study compared perioperative and clinical outcomes in patients undergoing laparoscopic and open hepatectomy for left IHD stones. From January 2002 to December(More)
BACKGROUND Current guidelines for gallbladder cancer (GBC) contain controversies and some reported no survival improvement in GBC during 20 years. This study was designed to explore the chronologic change of survival outcomes in GBC and prognostic factors. METHODS Clinicopathologic features and survival outcomes were analyzed in 692 consecutive GBC(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Extended cholecystectomy is generally recommended for patients with T2 gallbladder cancer. However, few studies have assessed the extent of resection relative to T2 gallbladder tumor location. This study analyzed the effects of surgical methods and tumor location on survival outcomes and tumor recurrence in patients with T2 gallbladder(More)
BACKGROUND It is considered natural that glucose tolerance worsens after pancreatectomy. However, diabetes mellitus (DM) resolves after metabolic bypass surgery and anatomic changes after PD resemble those after metabolic surgery. This study assessed the incidence of DM resolution after pancreatectomy and differences in metabolic parameters following(More)
Anomalous biliopancreatic junction (ABPJ) is a risk factor for gallbladder cancer (GBC). This study investigated the significance of ABPJ in patients with GBC. Of the 453 patients with GBC underwent surgery at Seoul National University Hospital between 2000 and 2014, the 401 patients who can be assessed for the presence of ABPJ with radiologic image were(More)
Stapling is a popular method for stump closure in distal pancreatectomy (DP). However, research on which cartridges are suitable for different pancreatic thickness is lacking. To identify the optimal stapler cartridge choice in DP according to pancreatic thickness.From November 2011 to April 2015, data were prospectively collected from 217 consecutive(More)
Focal nesidioblastosis is a rare cause of endogenous hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia in adults. Because it is difficult to localize and detect with current imaging modalities, nesidioblastosis is challenging for biliary-pancreatic surgeons.
