BACKGROUND: The blood supply of the native pancreas by three arterial lines from the celiac trunk system (splenic artery and common hepatic artery) and the superior mesenteric artery forces surgeons to perform vascular reconstruction to provide sufficient intra-organ blood flow into the graft. The purpose of our study was to assess the possibility of pancreas transplantation with an isolated splenic artery blood supply. METHODS: From January 2012 to July 2018, simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPKT) was performed in 21 patients...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: The comprehensive complication index (CCI) was developed following the Clavien-Dindo classification (CDC) to more properly reflect various complications that occur in one patient. In this study, we performed a prospective observational study to validate the usefulness of CCI in a small-volume hospital. METHODS: From March 2017 to February 2018, among the patients who had scheduled surgery with general anesthesia in the Department of Surgery in St...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the possibility and efficiency of a modified margin strategy in laparoscopic partial nephrectomy with selective renal artery clamping. METHODS: Seventy-six cases of laparoscopic partial nephrectomy with segmental renal artery clamping in Shanghai Changhai Hospital between July 2014 and September 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. Relevant clinical data were recorded including baseline patient and tumor characteristics, and surgical outcomes (segmental artery mobilization time, operating time, warm ischemic time, estimated blood loss, complications, and so on)...

BACKGROUND: Management of antiplatelet agents and other chronic anticoagulation medications in patients scheduled for surgery can reduce intraoperative bleeding complications. However, few studies on the association of antithrombotics, relative to their duration of action, with intraoperative transfusion have been conducted. We aimed to determine the association of recent use of antithrombotics, relative to their duration of action, with intraoperative transfusion in elderly people undergoing cancer surgery...

BACKGROUND: Three instrument arms are used in the current form of reduced-port robotic gastrectomy (RPRG) for gastric cancer. Based on our experience in performing reduced-port laparoscopic gastrectomy (RPLG), we have recently performed RPRG using two instrument arms. METHODS: From February 2018 to January 2019, we performed RPRG using two instrument arms for gastric cancer. One endoscope arm and two instrument arms of da Vinci® Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA, USA) were applied in robotic lymphadenectomy...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is a standard treatment for locally advanced breast cancer, especially for HER2-positive or triple negative breast cancer which shows good response to chemotherapy. However, because a result of biomarkers is, occasionally, changed after NAC, the treatment strategy should be differently applied for patients with locally advanced breast cancer. We compared the results of biomarkers before and after NAC to evaluate the association with disease prognosis and oncologic results...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative differentiation of follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) from follicular adenoma (FA) remains an unsolved puzzle. Patients sometimes undergo unnecessary lobectomy for histology confirmation inevitably. OBJECTIVE: In this retrospective study, we propose new gray-scale ultrasonographic (US) features that may help to differentiate FTC from FA. METHOD: Medical charts and US images of follicular thyroid neoplasms were collected prospectively...
