PURPOSE To define the role of robotic gastrectomy for the treatment of gastric cancer, the present systematic review with meta-analysis was performed. MATERIALS AND METHODS A comprehensive search up to July 2012 was conducted on PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library. All eligible studies comparing robotic gastrectomy versus laparoscopic gastrectomy or(More)
We studied periventricular/intraventricular type intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) by cranial ultrasonography in 82 low-birth-weight (LBW) newborn infants with admission hypothermia against the gestational-age-matched 82 normothermic neonates. The incidence of ICH was higher in the hypothermic infants during the 1st week of life (34/82 vs 20/82, P less than(More)
PURPOSE Minimally invasive gastrectomy (MIG), including laparoscopic distal subtotal gastrectomy (LDG) and robotic distal subtotal gastrectomy (RDG), is performed for gastric cancer, and requires a learning period. However, there are few reports regarding MIG by a beginner surgeon trained in MIG for gastric cancer during surgical residency and fellowship.(More)
PURPOSE Roux-en-Y reconstruction (RY) in laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer is a more complicated procedure than Billroth-I (BI) or Billroth-II. Here, we offer a totally laparoscopic simple RY using linear staplers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Each 50 consecutive patients with totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with RY and BI were enrolled(More)
