Roheena Z Panni, Steven M Strasberg
BACKGROUND: Observational studies have identified risk factors for conversion from laparoscopic to open cholecystectomy in acute cholecystitis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the reliability of these predictors and to identify sources of heterogeneity in the studies. METHODS: OVID was searched for papers published from 1995 to 2016. Studies with more than 100 patients were included. Risk factors for conversion were abstracted and categorized by statistical significance...

PURPOSE: To assess recent trends in pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) and the role of institutional standardization on the development of post-operative complications in 3,378 patients who underwent PD in Japan. METHODS: Data were collected from 3,378 patients who underwent PD in 2006, 2010, and 2014 at 53 institutions. A standardized institution (SI) was defined as one that implements ≥7 of 13 quality initiatives according to departmental policy. There were 1,223 patients in the SI group and 2,155 in the non-SI group...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Recent several studies suggested that nonsteroidal anti-inflammation drugs (NSAIDs) could prevent the pancreatitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). However, the routes of administration, the dosages of NSAIDs and the potential efficacy in reducing the severity of pancreatitis remain controversial. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy of NSAIDs for post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) prophylaxis. METHODS: We systematically searched PubMed, Embase, EBSCO, elsevier and web of science databases up to October 1, 2016 for relevant studies...

BACKGROUND: Histological examination is useful for the diagnosis of acute severe (fulminant) autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), but it is sometimes difficult to perform liver biopsy due to the complicated coagulopathy and ascites. We have shown that heterogeneous hypoattenuation on unenhanced computed tomography (CT) is a characteristic imaging feature of acute severe (fulminant) AIH. In the present study, we examined the utility of the imaging feature by applying the score to diagnose acute severe (fulminant) AIH...

BACKGROUND: Only a few studies have reported the resection and reconstruction of major hepatic veins during hepatectomy. Here we present our strategy and techniques for venous reconstruction with cryopreserved homologous veins, and describe the surgical outcome. METHODS: Among 2387 hepatectomy patients, 39 patients who required hepatic venous reconstruction were reviewed retrospectively. Venous reconstruction was performed to secure a non-congested liver remnant volume of at least 40% of the total liver volume...

BACKGROUND: We built a multinational retrospective database of patients with ampulla of Vater cancer to develop a reliable new staging system. METHOD: This study included 841 patients with ampulla of Vater cancer after curative surgery at Seoul National University Hospital (n = 440) and Johns Hopkins University medical institutions (n = 401) between 1985 and 2013. RESULTS: The 5-year overall survival (OS) rates of patients staged according to the 7(th) American Joint Committee on Cancer staging system were 80...

BACKGROUND: In 2015, the Committee on Diagnostic Criteria of the Japanese Study Group on Pancreaticobiliary Maljunction (PBM) proposed a classification of PBM into four types: (A) stenotic type, (B) non-stenotic type, (C) dilated channel type, and (D) complex type. To validate this classification and clarify the clinical features of the four types of PBM, a retrospective multicenter study was conducted. METHODS: The study group of 317 children with PBM was divided into the four types of PBM...

BACKGROUND: Delayed gastric emptying (DGE), a common postoperative complication of pancreaticoduodenectomy, is not considered a life-threatening complication. In the present study, we analyzed the risk factors for DGE and its impact on long-term prognosis. METHODS: We analyzed 383 patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy between 2003 and 2010, dividing them into two groups according to DGE grade as defined by the International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery: 243 without DGE (non-DGE group) and 140 with DGE of any grade (DGE group)...

BACKGROUND: The clinical relevance of a high-grade dysplasia/carcinoma in situ (HD/CIS)-positive bile duct margin in perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC) is unclear. We evaluated the surgical outcomes of PHC patients with HD/CIS. METHODS: Clinicopathological data of 163 consecutive patients who underwent resection of PHC between 2004 and 2013 were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: Postoperative states included curative resection (R0) with free margins in 113 patients, non-curative resection with HD/CIS (R1-HD/CIS) in 22 patients, and non-curative resection with any invasive carcinoma margin in 28 patients...

BACKGROUND: The use of grafts from donors with hypertension (HTN) in liver transplantation has grown rapidly recently, but whether HTN donors affect post-liver transplantation survival is unclear. METHODS: We used data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients database (2004-2008), and evaluated differences in baseline characteristics and outcomes between recipients of grafts from HTN and non-HTN donors. Kaplan-Meier and multivariate Cox regression models were used in assessing patient survival...

BACKGROUND: Surgical indications for liver hemangioma remain unclear. METHODS: Of 510 patients undergoing surgical resection for liver hemangioma in 118 Japanese centers between 1998 and 2012, abdominal symptoms, diagnostic accuracy, and surgical outcomes were analyzed to propose size-based surgical indications. Patients were classified into four groups based on tumor size: Group A ≤5 cm (n = 122, 24%), Group B 5-10 cm (n = 164, 32%), Group C 10-15 cm (n = 124, 24%), and Group D >15 cm (n = 100, 20%)...

BACKGROUND: Our previous randomized controlled trial revealed no difference in 2-year overall survival (OS) between extended and standard resection for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The present study evaluated the 5-year OS and recurrence patterns according to the extent of pancreatectomy. METHODS: Between 2006 and 2009, 169 consecutive patients were prospectively enrolled and randomized to standard (n = 83) or extended resection (n = 86) groups to compare 5-year OS rate, long-term recurrence patterns and factors associated with long-term survival...

BACKGROUND: To identify differences in incidence and mortality of pancreatic cancer (PC) between intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) and non-neoplastic cyst. METHODS: Patients with pancreatic cyst (n = 526; 263 with IPMN and 263 with non-neoplastic cyst matched for age, sex, and diagnosis year) were periodically followed-up with imaging. Hazard ratio (HR), standardized incidence ratio (SIR), and standardized mortality ratio (SMR) for PC and PC-related mortality were estimated...

BACKGROUND: Aspirin is widely used for the secondary prevention of ischemic stroke and cardiovascular disease. Perioperative aspirin may decrease thrombotic morbidity, but may also increase hemorrhagic morbidity. In particular, liver resection carries risks of bleeding, leading to higher risks of hemorrhagic morbidity. Our institution has continued aspirin therapy perioperatively in patients undergoing liver resection. This study examined the safety and feasibility of liver resection while continuing aspirin...

BACKGROUND: The objective of the present study was to examine the impact of muscle mass depletion (MMD) as determined by data in bioimpedance analysis (BIA) in liver cirrhosis (LC) patients (n = 382, 204 in male and 178 in female) on survival and to validate the utility of cutoff values in BIA recommended from current recommendations. METHODS: Muscle mass depletion was defined as patients with skeletal muscle mass index (SMI) using BIA <7.0 cm(2) /m(2) for male and <5...
