PURPOSE: An animal model of laparoscopic hepatectomy showed that bleeding from the hepatic vein is influenced by airway pressure. However, there are little research reports on how airway pressure leads to risks in clinical practice. The main objective of this study was to investigate the impact of preoperative forced expiratory volume % in 1 s (FEV1.0%) on intraoperative blood loss in laparoscopic hepatectomy. METHODS: All patients who underwent pure laparoscopic or open hepatectomy from April 2011 to July 2020 were classified into two groups by preoperative spirometry: those with obstructive ventilatory impairment (obstructive group; FEV1...

PURPOSE: Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is a standard procedure for various pancreatic head lesions. Recently, minimally invasive surgery (MIS), including laparoscopic PD (LPD) or robotic PD (RPD), has been widely performed. The hepaticojejunostomy (HJ) technique in MIS is more difficult than that in open procedures, and the placement of an external drainage tube (EDT) is not common in MIS owing to its complicated procedure. Here, we demonstrate the "Tube Submarine Technique" (TST) to facilitate EDT placement without hampering the anastomotic maneuver in MIS...

PURPOSE: Despite the benefits of bariatric surgery for many patients, there are a proportion of patients who do not achieve adequate weight loss. We evaluate the role of liraglutide as adjuvant pharmacotherapy in those who respond poorly to weight loss surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A non-controlled, prospective, open-label cohort study in which participants are prescribed liraglutide following inadequate response to weight loss surgery. The efficacy and tolerability of liraglutide was measured through measurement of BMI and monitoring of side effect profile...

PURPOSE: Real-time intraoperative perfusion assessment may reduce anastomotic leaks. Laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI) provides dye-free visualization of perfusion by capturing coherent laser light scatter from red blood cells and displays perfusion as a colormap. Herein, we report a novel method to precisely quantify intestinal perfusion using LSCI. METHODS: ActivSight™ is an FDA-cleared multi-modal visualization system that can detect and display perfusion via both indocyanine green imaging (ICG) and LSCI in minimally invasive surgery...

PURPOSE: The Naples prognostic score (NPS) is a prognostic index based on the nutritional and inflammatory status. However, its utility in predicting postoperative complications (POCs) has not been examined in rectal cancer (RC). We evaluated the predictive value of the preoperative NPS for POCs in RC. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 235 patients who underwent surgery for RC. The NPS was calculated based on serum albumin, serum total cholesterol, the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR)...

INTRODUCTION: Appendiceal neoplasms have a propensity for peritoneal dissemination. The standard of care for select individuals is CRS/HIPEC. In the current 8th AJCC Staging system, a finding of only intraperitoneal acellular mucin (M1a) is classified as Stage IVa. There is concern that the current AJCC system may over-stage patients. METHODS: This was a single-institution retrospective review of 164 cases of mucinous appendiceal neoplasm. Patients undergoing CRS/HIPEC with M1a disease were compared to patients with peritoneal deposits containing tumor cells (well-differentiated adenocarcinoma; low-grade mucinous carcinoma peritonei-M1b,G1)...
