OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the quality of life (QOL) after laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) compared with open distal gastrectomy (ODG) in patients with early gastric cancer. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA LADG has been beneficial in terms of pain, recovery, and morbidity when compared with open surgery with equal oncologic(More)
OBJECTIVE An accurate assessment of a potential lymph node metastasis is an important issue for the appropriate treatment of early gastric cancer. Minimizing the amount of invasive procedures used in cancer treatment is critical for improving the patient's quality of life. Therefore, this study analyzed the predictive risk factors for a lymph node(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) compared to open distal gastrectomy (ODG) in the treatment of early gastric cancer with respect to survival, surgical outcomes, complications, and quality of life (QOL). One hundred sixty-four patients with cT1N0M0 and cT1N1M0 distal gastric cancer were randomly(More)
This study was conducted to determine the effects of lactic acid bacteria (LAB, Lactobacillus salivarius) inoculation on the microbial, physical and chemical properties of food waste mixture (FWM) stored at ambient temperature (25 degrees C) for 10 and 30 days. A complete pig diet including restaurant food waste, bakery by-product, barley and wheat bran,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognosis of gastric cardia cancers in comparison with other gastric cancers. METHODS The medical records of 251 patients with gastric cardia cancers and 6568 patients with other gastric cancers who underwent R0 resection were reviewed. Clinicopathologic characteristics and survival were analyzed. (More)
Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) has been known to produce inflammatory modulators such as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) or nitric oxide (NO). In this study, we examined the effects of nicotine on LPS enhanced NO synthesis and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression in macrophages. LPS-induced NO synthesis and iNOS expression were significantly(More)
PURPOSE Cyclin G2 and cyclin E are important cell-cycle regulators in various cancer tissues. However, little is known about cyclin G2 expression in human gastric cancer tissues, and the role of cyclin E is quite controversial. This study evaluated their clinical significance in gastric cancer tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS Immunohistochemical staining(More)
Although laparoscopic surgery in children has expanded in recent years. Laparoscopic hernia repair in children is still debatable. We aimed to summarize and describe our results of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair and techniques among children. Between March 2011 and April 2013, 98 children (67 male, 31 female) underwent laparoscopic inguinal hernia(More)
BACKGROUNDS/AIMS Major hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery is usually performed via an open method rather than a laparoscopic method. Postoperative ileus (POI) is a classic complication after open surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine whether polylactic film is useful in the prevention of POI. METHODS A total of 179 patients who underwent(More)
has been described in both genders of all ages, and in almost any location (1, 2). It is characterized histologically by the presence of acute and chronic inflammatory cells with a variable fibrous response (2). Its pathogenesis is uncertain, but the lesion is generally regarded as reactive or postinfectious, and it originates from an inflammatory process(More)
