BACKGROUND: Although distal pancreatectomy (DP) using a reinforced stapler is expected to reduce PF, no multicenter RCT has been performed. To investigate whether reinforced staplers reduce the incidence of clinically relevant pancreatic fistula (PF) after DP compared with staplers without reinforcement. METHODS: Between July 2016 and December 2017, patients scheduled for DP were enrolled in a multicenter, randomized, controlled trial (RCT) at nine hospitals in Hiroshima Japan...

BACKGROUND: Malignant/borderline phyllodes tumors (PTs) are rare, and little is known about their long-term prognosis. This study sought to evaluate recurrence rates and identify factors associated with local and distant failure. METHODS: From 1957 to 2017, we identified 124 patients with 125 PTs (86 malignant and 39 borderline). Recurrence rates and survival were assessed using the Kaplan-Meier method, and correlated with clinicopathologic factors using the log-rank test...

BACKGROUND: Optimal nutrition after esophagectomy is challenging due to alterations in eating, both from the tumor and during surgical recovery. Enteral nutrition via feeding tube is commonly used. The impact of feeding tubes on post-esophagectomy outcomes was examined in a large national data set. METHODS: Patients with esophageal cancer (1998-2013) undergoing esophagectomy were extracted from the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results-Medicare database. Chi-square and t tests were used to compare categorical and continuous variables...

BACKGROUND: The authors previously showed the significant efficacy of S-1 plus cisplatin for gastric cancer with limited peritoneal metastasis. They conducted a phase 2 study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of induction chemotherapy using a docetaxel, cisplatin, and S-1 (DCS) triplet regimen to treat gastric cancer with peritoneal metastasis. METHODS: The key eligibility criteria were gastric cancer with peritoneal metastasis or positive peritoneal cytology but no other distant metastases and capability of oral administration...

BACKGROUND: Vascular invasion is a major determinant of survival outcomes after curative resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. This study was designed to investigate the efficacy of postoperative adjuvant transarterial chemoembolization (PA-TACE) in patients with HCC with hepatic vein tumor thrombus (HVTT). METHODS: Data from patients who underwent LR for HCC with HVTT at the Eastern Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital were retrospectively analyzed. The survival outcomes for patients who underwent PA-TACE after LR were compared with those who underwent LR alone...

BACKGROUND: According to 8th AJCC/UICC TNM criteria, stage IIB includes pT1N3M0, pT2N2M0, pT3N1M0, and pT4aN0M0, which includes not only early gastric cancer but also locally advanced cancer. There are currently no data about whether there is any additional impact of serosal exposed cancer without nodal metastasis (pT4aN0) on patients' survival outcomes compared with other subgroups in IIB. METHODS: Patients who underwent radical gastrectomy for gastric cancer patients were enrolled, including 427 patients in stage IIB; 20 (4...

BACKGROUND: Despite burgeoning interest in Complex General Surgical Oncology (CGSO) fellowship training, little is reported about postgraduate employment. The goal of this study was to characterize CGSO graduates' first employment and to identify factors that influenced this decision. METHODS: The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Society of Surgical Oncology developed and distributed an electronic survey to CGSO fellows who graduated from 2005 to 2016. RESULTS: The survey response rate was 47% (237/509)...

BACKGROUND: Current treatment guidelines for male breast cancer are predominantly guided by female-only clinical trials. With scarce research, it is unclear whether breast-conserving therapy (BCT) is equivalent to mastectomy in men. We sought to compare overall survival (OS) among male breast cancer patients who underwent BCT versus mastectomy. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 8445 stage I-II (T1-2 N0-1 M0) male breast cancer patients from the National Cancer Database (2004-2014)...

BACKGROUND: Little data exist about the impact of dissection methods on bladder function during nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy (NSRH). This randomized controlled trial compared the urodynamic and survival outcomes of different methods dissecting the inferior hypogastric plexus (IHP) during laparoscopic NSRH. METHODS: Eligible patients presenting with stage IB cervical cancer from 9 May 2013 to 27 October 2015 were randomized at a ratio of 1:1 and subjected to waterjet (study group) or traditional blunt (control group) dissection of the IHP for laparoscopic type C radical hysterectomy...

BACKGROUND: Few reports have examined the prognosis of or possible remedial treatments for patients with noncompliant D2 lymphadenectomy. We investigated the effect of noncompliance in lymph node (LN) dissection on long-term survival in gastric cancer (GC) patients after radical gastrectomy and explored intervention measures. METHODS: Clinicopathological data were retrospectively analyzed in 2401 patients who underwent radical gastrectomy for GC. Noncompliance was defined as patients with more than one empty LN station, as described in the protocol of the Japanese GC Association...

BACKGROUND: Despite benefits in quality of life, patient satisfaction, overall healthcare costs, and number of surgeries, historically fewer than 30% of patients undergo immediate breast reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer. A paucity of qualified oncologic and plastic surgeons coupled with inefficient use of operating room (OR) resources presents challenges in offering immediate breast reconstruction in a timely manner. To address these challenges, an immediate reconstruction swing room (IRSW) program was developed...

BACKGROUND: Aiming to minimize overtreatment of high-risk breast lesions (HRLs), including atypical ductal hyperplasia, and small breast cancers, including ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), we investigated a minimally invasive (MI) approach to definitive diagnosis and management of these conditions. METHODS: In the prospective Intact Percutaneous Excision registry study, women aged 31-86 years had removal of small invasive cancers, DCIS, or HRLs using image-guided 12-20 mm radiofrequency basket capture (MI excision)...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to examine the correlation between intraoperative and pathological findings for patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC) and to determine their prognostic significance. METHODS: Pathological reports of all colorectal cancer (CRC) patients undergoing CRS/HIPEC between 2009 and 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Pathological specimens lacking tumor cells were defined as negative pathological specimens (NPS)...

BACKGROUND: Despite data from randomized trials supporting omission of radiation therapy (RT) for women ≥ 70 years of age with T1, estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) tumors undergoing breast-conserving therapy (BCT), RT usage remains high. We reviewed our institutional experience to determine if risk factors for local recurrence or comorbidities influenced use. METHODS: Women ≥ 70 years of age with T1, ER+, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) tumors undergoing BCT in 2010-2012 were identified from a prospectively maintained database...
