Laparoscopic complete mesocolic excision is gradually becoming the standard surgical approach in colon cancer therapy, the core element of which is central vascular ligation. However, this increases the difficulty for surgeons, particularly in the context of right colectomy, which encounters complex vascular anatomy. This study aimed to examine vascular variations that occur during laparoscopic right hemicolectomy through a review of the medical literature. We demonstrated that the ICA and MCA are evident in the majority of patients...

OBJECTIVES: To identify the associated factors determining prostate cancer detection using transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsy, within a multi-ethnic Malaysian population with prostate specific antigen (PSA) between 4.0 and 10.0 ng/ml. METHODS: Study subjects included men with initial PSA between 4.0 and 10.0 ng/ml that have undergone 12-core TRUS-guided prostate biopsy between 2009 and 2016. The prostate cancer detection rate was calculated, while potential factors associated with detection were investigated via univariable and multivariable analysis...

BACKGROUND: Among rectal cancer patients, some of good responders after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) are considered for non-operative treatments to avoid postoperative morbidities and permanent stoma. However, oncologic feasibility of non-operative treatment has not been fully understood. METHODS: From 2008 to 2017, we retrospectively reviewed patient's records who had lower or mid rectal cancer and diagnosed to clinical complete response by magnetic resonance imaging after nCRT...

BACKGROUND: Ischemia reperfusion injury is unavoidable in the setting of transplantation and may lead to primary dysfunction of the transplanted organ. Similarly, intestinal ischemia reperfusion injury may have deleterious effects causing intestinal failure. Montelukast is a selective reversible cysteinyl-leukotriene type 1 receptor antagonist used in clinical practice for its anti-inflammatory effects. In this study, we investigated the effects of Montelukast on colon anastomosis performed after intestinal ischemia reperfusion injury...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Axillary lymph node staging (ALNS) is an important step in the treatment of breast cancer and sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a standard procedure for ALNS. Recently, the use of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for whole body staging in patients with breast cancer has been increasing. The negative predictive value (NPV) of the specific diagnostic modality is the crucial value for excluding axillary lymph node metastasis (ALNM) and guiding the decision not to proceed with axillary lymph node dissection...

To provide a meta-analysis of studies evaluating long-term all-cause mortality, aneurysm-related mortality and re-intervention after open or endovascular repair for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Electronic bibliographic sources were interrogated using a combination of free text and controlled vocabulary searches to identify studies comparing the long-term outcomes of open and endovascular repair for abdominal aortic aneurysm. The review was conducted according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement standards...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate oncological outcomes after repeat metastasectomies in patients having undergone previous resections for colorectal cancer metastases. METHODS: We examined 248 patients who underwent metastasectomies for lung and/or liver metastases at our center during a 7-year period, from January 2005 to December 2011. Recurrence-free survival 1 (RFS1) after the metastasectomy for the initial recurrence, recurrence-free survival 2 (RFS2) after the second, and recurrence-free survival 3 (RFS3) after the third repeated resections for recurrence were assessed...

Etiology of ascites of unknown origin varies with geographic area and ethnic origin. Tuberculous peritonitis and peritoneal carcinomatosis constitute a considerable proportion of patients. Differentiation between both is a major challenge. The role of omental thickness (OT) by ultrasonography to predict risk of malignancy in unexplained ascites. This prospective study was done at Kasr Alainy School of Medicine, Cairo University and included 100 adults with unexplained ascites and thickened omentum (>15 mm) on ultrasonography...

BACKGROUND: Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy is an essential procedure for lymph node staging in patients with breast carcinoma. Technetium-99m-labelled nanocolloid (99m Tc) is the most accurate and widely used lymphatic mapping agent; however, there are concerns pertaining to the associated exposure to radiation. Studies focusing on new agents are required. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of SLN detection using fluorescein and blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in breast carcinoma patients...

BACKGROUND: Robotic thyroidectomy is increasingly used for patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). We compared the differences between robotic and endoscopic transaxillary thyroidectomy with regard to surgical procedures. METHODS: This retrospective study enrolled 40 patients with PTC who underwent robotic hemithyroidectomy (robot group) using the Da Vinci S system and 37 patients (endoscopic group) who underwent endoscopic hemithyroidectomy. Video files of surgery for all patients were analyzed to compare the operation procedures: (flap creation, docking [only for robot group], dissection of the superior pole, dissection of the inferior pole, identification of parathyroid glands [PTGs] and the recurrent laryngeal nerve [RLN], dissection of the thyroid along the trachea, bleeding control, application of a drain, and wound closure)...

BACKGROUND: An appropriate treatment of older lung cancer patients has become an important issue. The aim of this study is to evaluate the short and long-term surgical outcomes in lung cancer patients using 70 years as a cut-point, and to identify prognostic factors of cancer-specific mortality in patients older than 70 years. METHODS: Medical records of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients who underwent pulmonary resection at Chiang Mai University Hospital from January 2002 through December 2016 were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to assess how much renal malperfusion increases the risk of early and late mortality in patients with acute type A aortic dissection (ATAAD) undergoing surgical repair. METHODS: This study included 218 patients with ATAAD undergoing surgical repair using the total arch replacement and frozen elephant trunk technique. Mean age was 47.8 ± 10.7 years and 170 were male (78.0%). Based on clinical symptoms and computed tomographic angiography (CTA) findings, 48 patients were diagnosed with preoperative renal malperfusion (22...

BACKGROUND: In 2012, the Japanese Society for Surgical Metabolism and Nutrition introduced the Essential Strategy for Early Normalization after Surgery with Patient's Excellent Satisfaction (ESSENSE) program to improve the perioperative management of gastrointestinal surgery. The ESSENSE program aimed to minimize ineffective perioperative management practices, and achieve adequate analgesia to expedite the return to work and activities of daily living. METHODS: After educating relevant facilities about the ESSENSE program in 2012, we conducted questionnaire-based surveys in selected institutions in 2013 and 2016...
