BACKGROUND: Gastric neuroendocrine carcinomas (G-NECs) are rare. This study aimed to explore the feasibility and clinical efficacy of laparoscopic surgery in patients with advanced G-NECs. METHODS: The clinicopathological data of 175 G-NECs patients who underwent radical gastrectomy in a high-volume centre were collected. One hundred fifty-one cases with advanced G-NECs (laparoscopic gastrectomy [LG] = 30, open gastrectomy [OG] = 121) were finally selected for comparison of the short-term outcomes and oncologic efficacy...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Colonoscopy-induced colonic perforation often requires surgical management. The aim of this study was to analyze the outcomes after surgery for colonoscopic perforations (CPs). METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review study of 48 patients who underwent surgery for CPs between January 2002 and May 2017. The patients were divided into two groups: Group I (n = 25) had diagnostic CPs, and Group II (n = 23) had therapeutic CPs. RESULTS: The most common perforation sites in Group I were the sigmoid colon (n = 19; 76...

BACKGROUND: Many immunosuppressive drugs are prescribed as twice-daily dosing. A simplified once-daily dosing of immunosuppressive drug regimen may improve medication adherence. We investigated medication adherence of simplified once-daily immunosuppressive regimen consisting of extended-release tacrolimus, sirolimus, and corticosteroids along with the efficacy and safety of this regimen. METHODS: This study was a prospective, multicenter, controlled and cohort trial...

OBJECTIVE: To report our experience in treating endophytic renal tumor by robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RPN) with a standard laparoscopic ultrasound probe and our original approach for separating renal mass. METHODS: All patients with endophytic renal tumor who underwent RPN in our department from January 2015 to December 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. All surgeries were performed by transperitoneally by a single, experienced surgeon. Baseline characteristics, tumor characteristics, operative profile and follow-up data were collected...

Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) is considered as the gold standard in the surgical management of non-traumatic diseases of spleen (NDOS), and robotic splenectomy (RS) is a promising alternative treatment. This study aimed to compare the effectiveness and safety of RS versus LS for NDOS. Several databases were systematically searched for the literature that compared RS with LS for NDOS. Primary outcomes included operative time, blood loss, conversion to open, hospital stay, cost, postoperative complication, and postoperative morbidity...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: The present study investigated the potent therapeutic effects of Ruscogenin, main steroid sapogenin of traditional Chinese plant called 'Ophiopogon japonicas', on chronic ulcer model established with acetic acid in rats. METHODS: 24 rats were attenuated to the sham (2 ml/kg/day isotonic solution), control (untreated ulcer) and treatment (3 ml/kg/day ruscogenin) groups. After treatment for 2 weeks, gastric tissues were collected and prepared for light microscopic (H&E), immunohistochemical (Collagen I, III and IV) and biochemical analysis [Epidermal growth factor (EGF), Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF-α), Interleukin 6 and 8 (IL-6 and IL-8), Lipid Peroxidase (LPO), Myeloperoxidase (MPO), Glutathione (GSH) and Glutathione Peroxidase (GSH-Px)] and transmission electron microscopy (TEM)...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Although many studies have demonstrated similar perioperative outcomes for single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) and conventional laparoscopic surgery (CLS) for colon cancer, few have directly compared the costs of them. We aimed to compare costs between SILS and CLS for colon cancer. METHODS: We analyzed the clinical outcomes and overall hospital costs of patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery for colon cancer from July 2009 to September 2014 at our institution; 288 were used for analysis after propensity score matching...

BACKGROUND: Robotic surgery is the most advanced minimally invasive technique for the treatment of complicated solid pseudopapillary tumors (SPT). The aim of this study is to evaluate feasibility of robotic surgery for the treatment of SPTs in the pancreatic head. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the clinical data of 83 SPTs in pancreatic head was conducted. Clinical characteristics were extracted and propensity score matching (PSM) was used to compare and evaluate mid-term outcomes of the two techniques...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: To investigate the oncological and functional outcomes after partial nephrectomy for clinical stage T1 (cT1) renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and assess the association between excisional volume loss (EVL) and postoperative renal function. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 150 patients with cT1 RCC undergoing partial nephrectomy from 2002 to 2016. End-point evaluation was assessed by recurrence free survival (RFS), overall survival (OS), stage III and stage IV chronic kidney disease (CKD)...

Laparoscopic biliary tract exploration is a minimally invasive surgery for biliary calculi. Most of the stones could be removed by conventional surgical methods including lithotomy forceps and choledochoscopy, but for the incarceration stones of the bile duct, it is technically challenging to crush the stones directly by the lithotomy forceps. We retrospective clinical data describing the long-term experience of incarcerated choledocholithiasis with holmium laser in laparoscopic bile duct exploration (LCBDE)...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to analyze the effect of surgical methods on mortality and the relative risk of patients who underwent internal fixation (IF) or hemiarthroplasty (HA) after being diagnosed as a pertrochanteric fracture over 65 years old in a Korean nationwide cohort with a single insurance medical system. METHODS: The Korean National Health Insurance Service-Senior cohort (NHIS-Senior, NHIS-2018-2-111) was used in this study. The eligibility criteria for incident hip fracture patients were the following: (1) first-time admission to acute care hospitals (index admission) with pertrochanteric fracture (ICD-10 S721), (2) three years of hip fracture-free period, (3) recipients of typical surgeries including IF, HA, (4) age between 65 and 99...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy-assisted robotic transanal total mesorectal excision is a novel surgical technique for rectal cancer resection. Compared to prior DaVinci Si system case series, this case series is the first to report robotic taTME assisted by laparoscopy (r-taTME) in which the "transanal team" operates via the DaVinci Xi system. As a result, we aim to delineate and discuss preliminary findings from our robotic taTME experiences. METHODS: A total of twenty patients (twelve males) who underwent robotic taTME assisted by laparoscopy (r-taTME) between January 2016 and November 2016 at a single institution were documented...
