BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Detailed endoscopic findings of the bile duct mucosa have not been fully established. This fundamental ex vivo study assesses the relationship between magnified endoscopic findings and pathological findings of the bile duct mucosa. METHODS: Forty-one surgically resected common bile duct mucosae were investigated. We cut each common bile duct open longitudinally for ex vivo endoscopic observation. We used a magnifying endoscope commonly used for the gastrointestinal tract, using both white light imaging and narrow band imaging...

BACKGROUND: Several factors affect the level of difficulty of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP). The purpose of this study was to develop a difficulty scoring (DS) system to quantify the degree of difficulty in LDP. METHODS: We collected clinical data for 80 patients who underwent LDP. A 10-level difficulty index was developed and subcategorized into a three-level difficulty index; 1-3 as low, 4-6 as intermediate, and 7-10 as high index. The automatic linear modeling (LINEAR) statistical tool was used to identify factors that significantly increase level of difficulty in LDP...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to compare the 7th and 8th editions of the AJCC staging system for pancreas head cancer and to validate the 8th edition using three multinational tertiary center data. METHODS: Data of 2,864 patients with pancreas head cancer were collected from Korea (571), Japan (824), and the USA (1,469). Survival analysis was performed to compare the 7th and 8th editions. Validation was performed by log-rank tests and test for trend repeated 1,000 times with random sets...

BACKGROUND: The association between chronic pancreatitis and herpes zoster has not been fully investigated. The objective of the study was to investigate whether there is an association between chronic pancreatitis and herpes zoster in Taiwan. METHODS: Using the claim data of the Taiwan National Health Insurance Program, we identified 1,545 participants aged 20-84 years with a new diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis from 2000 to 2012 as the chronic pancreatitis group...

BACKGROUND: The prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with tumor thrombus in the major portal vein (PV) is extremely poor. The purpose of this study was to clarify the impact of hepatic resection for HCC with tumor thrombus in the major PV. PATIENTS: Four hundred patients undergoing macroscopic curative resection for HCC involving the first branch or trunk of the PV between 2001 and 2010 at the 22 institutions were enrolled. We examined the effect of adjuvant hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC) on prognosis and validated the prognostic index consisting of ascites, prothrombin activity, and maximal tumor diameter...

BACKGROUND: Recently proposed by the International Consensus Conference on Laparoscopic Liver Resection, the Iwate criteria (IC) can be used by surgeons to predict the operative difficulty of laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) and were validated in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common indication for LLR. METHODS: The IC comprise six preoperative factors that allow the grading of operative difficulty as low, intermediate, advanced, or expert...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy (MIDP) has gained in popularity recently. However, there is no consensus on whether to preserve the spleen or not. In this study, we compared MIDP outcomes between spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy (SPDP) and distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy (DPS); as well as outcomes between splenic vessel preservation (SVP) and Warshaw's technique (WT). METHODS: A systematic search of PubMed (MEDLINE) and Cochrane Library was conducted and the reference lists of review articles were hand-searched...

REVIEW

Congenital portosystemic shunt (CPS) is classified into type I (congenital absence of the portal vein) and type II, depending on the presence or absence of the intrahepatic portal vein. Reports still exist on cases in which psychiatric diseases or mental retardation was diagnosed or cases in which diagnosis and treatment are not performed until severe pulmonary complications occur, indicating the need to recognize CPS. Herein, we reviewed epidemiology, etiology, classification, symptom, diagnosis, and treatment based on clinical view points of CPS...

BACKGROUND: Liver natural killer (NK) cells are the first cells to respond to infections and malignancies, such as intraoperative tumor spill. Liver NK cells express tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), a marker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the influence of TRAIL single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on hepatectomy patients with HCC remains unclear. METHODS: Here, we investigated TRAIL SNPs (rs1131568, rs1131579, and rs1131580) located at positions 1525, 1588, and 1595 of exon 5 of the TNFSF10 gene...

BACKGROUND: Age-related events, such as cardiopulmonary complications, delirium, transfer to a rehabilitation facility, and dependency are a major problem after hepatic resection in the elderly. This prospective multicenter study aimed to preoperatively evaluate frailty in the elderly according to a phenotypic frail index, named the "Kihon Checklist (KCL)," to predict "age-related events" after hepatic resection. METHODS: Between May 2016 and September 2017, 217 independently living patients who consented among all patients aged ≥65 years who planned to undergo hepatic resection were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Conversion surgery (CS) is expected as a new therapeutic strategy for patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer (UR-PC). We analyzed outcomes of CS for patients with UR-PC and evaluated the survival benefit of CS. METHODS: Thirty-four patients diagnosed with UR-PC according to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guideline underwent CS in our hospital. Resectability was considered by multimodal images in patients who underwent nonsurgical treatment (NST) for more than 6 months...

BACKGROUND: In our process of standardizing laparoscopic right hemihepatectomy (Lap-RH), we found several advantages of the laparoscopic caudate lobe first approach by using a unique laparoscopic caudodorsal view. METHODS: Between April 2012 and October 2017, 21 patients underwent pure Lap-RH at our hospital. The mean patient age was 62 years (range 36-75 years), and there were more male than female patients (66.7%). Of 21 patients, 11 had hepatocellular carcinoma, eight had metastatic tumor, and the other two had focal nodular hyperplasia and refractory liver abscess...

BACKGROUND: Early ligation of the inferior pancreatoduodenal artery has been advocated to reduce blood loss during pancreatoduodenectomy. However, the impact of early ligation of the dorsal pancreatic artery (DPA) remains unclear. This study was performed to investigate the clinical implications of early ligation of the DPA. METHODS: From October 2014 to April 2017, 34 consecutive patients underwent pancreatoduodenectomy using a mesenteric approach. The patients were divided into the early DPA ligation group (n = 15) and late DPA ligation group (n = 19)...

REVIEW
Katharina Joechle, Claudius Conrad
While clinical outcomes of minimally invasive pancreatic resection (MIPR) compared to open surgery are well examined, only few studies focus on its associated cost. The aim of this study is to evaluate cost analyses comparing MIPR to open pancreatic resection (OPR). A systematic review of the literature using PubMed of all published studies between 2000 and 2017 was performed. Studies reporting on cost of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP) and laparoscopic pancreatoduodenectomy (LPD) compared to open surgery were identified...
