BACKGROUND: Dedicated stents for treatment of cervical anastomotic leakage are currently unavailable. In this study, we aimed to assess the feasibility and efficacy of using custom-designed stents for treatment of cervical anastomotic leakage after esophagectomy. METHODS: The stents were designed according to the location and size of the leakage and the residual esophageal length as determined by esophagography in each case. It had a cup-shaped upper end and a globular lower end and a total height of 60-85 mm...

BACKGROUND: In colon cancer, T4 stage is still assumed to be a relative contraindication for laparoscopic surgery considering the oncological safety. The aim of this systematic review with meta-analysis was to evaluate short- and long-term oncological outcomes after laparoscopic surgery for T4 colon cancer, and to compare these with open surgery. METHODS: Using systematic review of literature, studies reporting on radicality of resection, disease-free survival (DFS), and/or overall survival (OS) after laparoscopic surgery for T4 colon cancer were identified, with or without a control group of open surgery...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic resection (ER) is a widely accepted treatment for patients with early gastric cancer (EGC) with no lymph node metastasis. Occasionally, however, additional surgery is needed due to an incomplete resection. The purpose of this study was to detect clinical factors which might identify patients at greater risk of additional surgery after ER and to suggest an alternative treatment strategy for these patients. METHODS: This study retrospectively analyzed 350 patients with gastric cancer who underwent radical gastrectomy and lymphadenectomy after ER in a single institution between July 2004 and July 2014...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of unresectable malignant hilar biliary stricture (UMHBS) is challenging, especially after failure of repeated transpapillary endoscopic stenting. Endoscopic ultrasonography-guided intrahepatic biliary drainage (EUS-IBD) is a recent technique for intrahepatic biliary decompression, but indications for its use for complex hilar strictures have not been well studied. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and safety of EUS-IBD for UMHBS after failed transpapillary re-intervention...

OBJECTIVE: Although the endoscopic treatment of gastric stromal tumors is a recently accepted therapy, the long-term outcomes of this approach remain unknown. The aims of this study were to assess the long-term effectiveness and safety of endoscopic resection for gastric GISTs. METHODS: A total of 60 consecutive patients undergoing endoscopic resection of gastric GISTs were enrolled in a retrospective single-center study. Clinical data, perioperative complications, histopathologic characteristics of the tumors, and long-term outcomes were recorded...

BACKGROUND: The studies comparing laparoscopic and open central pancreatectomy with pancreaticojejunostomy are limited. This study aimed to compare clinical outcomes and quality of life of patients undergoing laparoscopic and open central pancreatectomy with pancreaticojejunostomy. METHODS: Between December 1997 and December 2015, patients who underwent central pancreatectomy with pancreaticojejunostomy were reviewed. Patients were divided into 2 groups as laparoscopic central pancreatectomy (LCP) and open central pancreatectomy (OCP)...

INTRODUCTION: Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is widely used in the treatment of open abdomen (OA). The use of dynamic fascial sutures (DFS) increases the rate of successful delayed closure by reducing fascial lateralization. We recently published a prospective controlled trial including 87 patients undergoing abdominal surgery for secondary peritonitis between 2007 and 2012. Patients were treated with NPWT and DFS for approximation of fascial edges. The present study represents a follow-up assessment of these patients 5-9 years after OA treatment with NPWT and DFS...

INTRODUCTION: The European Association of Endoscopic Surgeons (EAES) conducted this study aiming to identify the top research questions which are relevant to surgeons in Minimal Access Surgery (MAS). This is in order to promote and link research questions to the current clinical practice in MAS in Europe. METHODS: Using a systematic methodology, (modified Delphi), the EAES members and leadership teams were surveyed to obtain consensus on the top research priorities in MAS...

BACKGROUND: Despite increases in the performance of pure laparoscopic living donor hepatectomy, variations in the bile duct or portal vein have been regarded as relative contraindications to this technique [1-3]. This report describes a donor with separate right posterior and right anterior hepatic ducts and portal veins who underwent pure laparoscopic living donor right hemihepatectomy, integrated with 3D laparoscopy and indocyanine green (ICG) near-infrared fluorescence cholangiography [1, 4, 5]...

BACKGROUND: This study retrospectively compared the safety and efficacy of two endoscopic techniques for treating newly diagnosed achalasia, pneumatic dilation (PD), and peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM). METHODS: Demographics, clinical and manometric data, and outcomes were collected from the medical records of patients who received POEM or PD as the primary therapy for achalasia at our hospital from January 2012 to August 2015. RESULTS: Of 72 patients, 32 and 40 received POEM and PD, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Robotic-assisted surgery is used with increasing frequency in general surgery for a variety of applications. In spite of this increase in usage, the learning curve is not yet defined. This study reviews the literature on the learning curve in robotic general surgery to inform adopters of the technology. METHODS: PubMed and EMBASE searches yielded 3690 abstracts published between July 1986 and March 2016. The abstracts were evaluated based on the following inclusion criteria: written in English, reporting original work, focus on general surgery operations, and with explicit statistical methods...

BACKGROUND: Step-up approach consisting of multiple minimally invasive techniques has gradually become the mainstream for managing infected pancreatic necrosis (IPN). In the present study, we aimed to compare the safety and efficacy of a novel four-step approach and the conventional approach in managing IPN. METHODS: According to the treatment strategy, consecutive patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria were put into two time intervals to conduct a before-and-after comparison: the conventional group (2010-2011) and the novel four-step group (2012-2013)...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the safety and feasibility of totally laparoscopic uncut Roux-en-Y anastomosis in the distal gastrectomy with D2 dissection for gastric cancer. We also summarized the preliminary experience of totally laparoscopic uncut Roux-en-Y anastomosis.

BACKGROUND: The issue of mesh fixation in endoscopic inguinal hernia repair is frequently debated and still no conclusive data exist on differences between methods regarding long-term outcome and postoperative complications. The quantity of trials and the simultaneous lack of high-quality evidence raise the question how future trials should be planned. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library were searched, using the filters "randomised clinical trials" and "humans"...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic training with visual force feedback can lead to immediate improvements in force moderation. However, the long-term retention of this kind of learning and its potential decay are yet unclear. METHODS: A laparoscopic resection task and force sensing apparatus were designed to assess the benefits of visual force feedback training. Twenty-two male university students with no previous experience in laparoscopy underwent relevant FLS proficiency training...

BACKGROUND: Valid and reliable methods for measurement of lesion sizes during endoscopy have not been established. METHODS: We developed a novel software program (ENDOVER; Poinbionics, Seoul, Republic of Korea) to measure lesions sizes and assessed its validity and reliability. To validate the program, we measured standard coin sizes and estimated measurement errors. To assess program reliability, 32 pictures of endoscopically resected specimens were used to measure tissue sizes six times in a 24-h interval by two examiners...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of bowel length is an essential surgical skill for laparoscopic and open gastrointestinal surgery in order to achieve favorable outcomes and avoid long-term complications. Variations in accuracy between the two surgical approaches may exist. However, only few studies have tried to assess these differences. Our aim was to assess reliability and inter-rater variability of small bowel length assessment during laparoscopy in an in vivo porcine model. METHODS: This is a single-institution, double-blinded, technical assessment study in a porcine in vivo model...
