PURPOSE: Although obesity is associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development, its impact on the surgical outcomes of patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-and hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related HCC remains unclear. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 714 patients with HCC who underwent curative hepatectomy. Among them, the HBV-related HCC group (n = 125) and HCV-related HCC group (n = 426) were subdivided according to the presence of body mass index (BMI) ≥ 25 kg/m(2)...

PURPOSE: Although associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has been advocated for treating advanced liver tumors, increased morbidity and mortality remain serious problems. Many modified procedures have been devised to improve patient safety, but some confusion persists as to benefits and risks. METHODS: Modifications to ALPPS as originally reported were reviewed to clarify their contributions to safety and their clinical relevance...

BACKGROUND: Proximal early gastric cancer is a good indication for totally laparoscopic proximal gastrectomy (TLPG) with double-tract reconstruction (DTR). However, when most of the dietary intake passes through the escape route of the jejunum, the functional benefits of proximal gastrectomy might be similar to those after total gastrectomy. Our DTR procedure was improved for easy passage through the remnant stomach. The purposes of this study were to present a novel technique for intracorporeal DTR using linear staplers after TLPG and to investigate surgical outcomes...

PURPOSE: The relationship between the body mass index (BMI) of kidney transplant recipients and outcomes after kidney transplantation (KT) is not fully understood and remains controversial. We studied the influence of BMI on clinically relevant outcomes in kidney transplant recipients. METHODS: In this retrospective single-centre study, all patients who underwent kidney transplantation at our institution between January 2007 and December 2012 were included. Demographic data and BMI were correlated with the clinical course of the disease, rejection rates, delayed graft function rates, and graft and patient survival...

PURPOSE: Recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) injury is one of the most common and detrimental complications following thyroidectomy. Intermittent intraoperative nerve monitoring (I-IONM) has been proposed to reduce prevalence of RLN injury following thyroidectomy and has gained increasing acceptance in recent years. METHODS: A comprehensive database search was performed, and data from eligible meta-analyses meeting the inclusion criteria were extracted. Transient, permanent, and overall RLN injuries were the primary outcome measures...

PURPOSE: Chronic asthenia (CA) is complained by some patients that have undergone thyroid surgery. We evaluate its impact in patients undergoing unilateral or bilateral thyroidectomy, the trend during a 1-year follow-up, and the possible risk factors. METHODS: A prospective, cohort study was carried out on 263 patients scheduled for thyroidectomy from 2012 and 2014. Exclusion criteria were as follows: Graves' disease, malignancies requiring radioiodine therapy, post-surgical hypoparathyroidism, laryngeal nerve palsy, abnormal pre- and post-operative thyroid hormone levels, and BMI outside the normal range...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of hypercortisolism for patients with bilateral adrenal disease (BAD) is controversial. Bilateral total adrenalectomy results in permanent hypocortisolaemia requiring lifelong steroid replacement. A more conservative surgical approach, with less than bilateral total adrenalectomy (leaving functional adrenal tissue either unilaterally or bilaterally), represents an alternative option; however, long-term outcome or recurrence data are limited. We report our experience with the surgical management of hypercortisolism caused by BAD...

BACKGROUND: Irreversible electroporation (IRE), a nonthermal injury ablation technique, has been shown to be effective and safe in various organs, such as in the kidney, liver, prostate, or in pancreas. In contrast to radiofrequency or microwave ablation, IRE is also effective in the neighborhood of major vessels. Many human cancers reveal lymphatic spread. The present study aimed to evaluate technical feasibility and safety of IRE in lymphatic tissue. To our knowledge, this is the first report showing successful IRE of lymph nodes in a standardized porcine survival model...

PURPOSE: Arterial involvement in advanced pancreatic cancer generally defines local unresectability. This study was aimed to evaluate the clinical outcomes of combined common hepatic arterial resection with pancreaticoduodenectomy or total pancreatectomy in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer involving the hepatic artery. METHODS: Of 348 patients with pancreatic head cancers who underwent surgical resection between June 1999 and September 2015, 21 underwent combined common hepatic arterial resection with pancreaticoduodenectomy (17) or total pancreatectomy (4)...

PURPOSE: Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) is a common functional disorder after esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction. Little is known about risk factors that can predict this debilitating complication. METHODS: Patients who underwent elective esophagectomy from 2008 to 2016 in a single center were retrospectively reviewed. Diagnosis of DGE was based on clinical, radiological, and endoscopic findings. Uni- and multivariate analyses were performed to identify patient-, tumor-, and procedure-related factors that increase the risk of DGE...

REVIEW
Shunichiro Komatsu, Yukihiro Yokoyama, Masato Nagino
PURPOSE: It is conceivable that manipulation of the gut microbiota could reduce the incidence or magnitude of surgical complications in digestive surgery. However, the evidence remains inconclusive, although much effort has been devoted to randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and meta-analyses on probiotics. Furthermore, the mechanism behind the protective effects of probiotics appears elusive, our understanding of probiotic actions being fragmentary. The objective of this review is to assess the clinical relevance of the perioperative use of probiotics in major digestive surgery, based on a comprehensive view of the gut microbiota, bacterial translocation (BT), and host defense system...

PURPOSE: Introduction of three-dimensional (3D) display might remove technical obstacles of laparoscopic surgery and improve laparoscopic skills. We analyzed the effect of 3D technology on operative performance during laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) for gastric cancer and assessed its advantages over two-dimensional (2D) laparoscopy. METHODS: This study included 30 consecutive surgeries of LTG with esophagojejunostomy by the overlap method performed (3D group, n = 15, 2D group, n = 15)...

PURPOSE: Inconsistent data exists regarding esophagectomy outcomes in octogenarians undergoing transhiatal esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed for esophagectomy cancer patients between 2000 and 2012 at our tertiary referral center. Outcome data for octogenarians was compared to younger patients aged 20 to 79 years. A case-matched group of patients younger than 80 years old (n = 33) was included based on the Charlson comorbidity index with the octogenarian group (n = 33)...

PURPOSE: Blood analytes are easily used in routine clinical practice. Tumor markers (TMs) are useful in diagnosing, treating, and predicting prognosis of gastric cancer (GC). The prognostic nutritional index (PNI) was also recently found to be useful in predicting GC prognosis. METHODS: The PNI and serum levels of CEA and CA19-9 of 453 patients with GC were measured to examine correlations between those levels and patients' prognoses. RESULTS: Of the 453 patients, 84 (18...
