Paraduodenal hernia is by far the most common form of congenital internal hernia. Chylous ascites is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the peritoneal cavity. It develops when the lymphatic system is disrupted due to traumatic injury or obstruction. A 40-year-old, woman showed up to the Emergency Department with severe, colicky abdominal pain. Tenderness(More)
PURPOSE Among cell adhesion molecules, serum levels of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 and E-selectin are known to be correlated with the metastatic potential of gastric cancer. In the present study, the authors investigated the expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 and E-selectin in gastric cancer tissues and cultured gastric cancer cells, and(More)
PURPOSE Endoscopic resection is widely accepted as standard treatment for early gastric cancer (EGC) without lymph node metastasis. The procedure is minimally invasive, safe, and convenient. However, surgery is sometimes needed after endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR)/endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) due to perforation, bleeding, or incomplete(More)
PURPOSE Gastric cancer has a high incidence and mortality rate in Korea. Despite a growing older population and an increase in the number of older patients with gastric cancer, the older patients are not willing to undergo surgery due to their operative risks. Hence, to determine the clinical characteristics and outcomes of gastric cancer surgery for them,(More)
Identification of helper T-cell epitopes is important in many fields of medicine. We previously used an experimental approach to identify T-cell epitopes in PE38, a truncated bacterial toxin used in immunotoxins. Here, we evaluated the ability of antibodies to DR, DP, or DQ to block T-cell responses to PE38 epitopes in 36 PBMC samples. We predicted the(More)
PURPOSE Before expanding our indications for laparoscopic gastrectomy to advanced gastric cancer and adopting reduced port laparoscopic gastrectomy, we analyzed and audited the outcomes of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) for adenocarcinoma; this was done during the adoptive period at our institution through the comparative analysis of(More)
We report a case of primary gastric malignant melanoma that was diagnosed after curative resection but initially misdiagnosed as adenocarcinoma. A 68-year-old woman was referred to our department for surgery for gastric adenocarcinoma presenting as a polypoid lesion with central ulceration located in the upper body of the stomach. The preoperative diagnosis(More)
Gastric tuberculosis is rare even in the endemic areas of tuberculosis, and can mimic neoplasm by causing elevation of the mucosa with or without ulceration. Here, we report a case in which a 54-year-old female patient admitted for resection of early gastric cancer was found to have coexisting histopathologically and bacteriologically confirmed gastric(More)
