BACKGROUND: Several important changes were made to the 8th edition of American Joint Commission on Cancer (AJCC) tumor staging system for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). We assessed the prognostic impact of this new tumor staging system compared to the 7th edition. METHODS: A retrospective single-institution study was performed with 626 patients who underwent R0 resection for ICC over 20-year period. RESULTS: Anatomical resection and concurrent bile duct resection were performed in 571 (91...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols are beneficial for pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). Our aim was to evaluate risk factors associated with ERAS protocol failure after PD. METHODS: Clinical variables of 187 patients managed using ERAS protocols between April 2011 and April 2017, including non-early recovery (non-ER) patients, with complications or requiring a hospital stay ≥15 days, and early recovery (ER) patients, were compared. A physical aging (PA) score was devised to predict postoperative risks...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect and potential mechanism of chlorogenic acid (CA) on liver injury induced by cholestasis in a rat model of bile duct ligation (BDL). METHODS: Rats received vehicle or CA (20, 50, or 100 mg/kg/d) orally for 3 days. On the 4th day, the rats underwent sham or BDL surgery, and were orally administrated vehicle or CA for 3 or 7 days. mRNA and protein expression levels were evaluated by qRT-PCR and western blot. RESULTS: After BDL, plasma levels of ALT, AST, total bilirubin (TBIL), and total bile acids (TBA) were increased and typical pathological changes were observed in liver morphology...

The diagnosis and management of many gastrointestinal conditions has been augmented by the development of endoscopic ultrasound. Its role in the diagnosis and management of liver disease has been somewhat limited, but with the rapid development of therapeutic advancements it has quickly emerged as a useful tool in the management of complex hepatic conditions. This includes its use in the management of complications of portal hypertension as well as its use in liver lesions and cancer. In this paper, we review case studies, case series and trials for hepatic applications of endoscopic ultrasound to provide an overview of its utilization in this field and demonstrating its more novel applications for future use...

Surgical resection that leaves no residual carcinoma offers the only chance of long-term survival for patients with perihilar cholangiocarcinoma. Numerous attempts have been made to improve and expand the use of surgical procedures for this disease, and surgical outcomes are now improving. Here, we describe the contributions of Eastern and Western surgeons to advances in surgical resection for perihilar cholangiocarcinoma by reviewing the landmark achievements of those who pioneered these surgical procedures...

Intraductal papillary neoplasm of bile duct (IPNB) was described as a preinvasive neoplastic lesion of the biliary tract in the 2010 World Health Organization (WHO) classification. Although a number of studies have since been conducted on IPNBs, controversy remains, particularly regarding the standardization of its definition. Meetings by Japanese and Korean expert pathologists were held twice to resolve the pathological diagnostic aspects of IPNB. Through round-table discussions and histological reviews, we reached the common understanding that IPNBs diagnosed according to the criteria of WHO 2010 are characterized by intraductal predominant papillary or villous biliary neoplasms covering delicate fibrovascular stalks and are classified into two types pathologically...

BACKGROUND: Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of cytology specimens has been used to diagnose biliary strictures. However, the usefulness of FISH for differentiating between cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) and IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) has not been evaluated in forceps biopsy specimens. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 74 specimens obtained by transpapillary forceps biopsy between 2008 and 2015 from 49 consecutive patients with CCA and 25 with IgG4-SC...

To collect big data for further research to improve treatment outcomes in patients with colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM), the Joint Committee for Nationwide Survey on CRLM was established by the Japanese Society for Cancer of the Colon and Rectum and the Japanese Society of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery. The joint committee initiated data collection since 2014. The data of 4,237 patients newly diagnosed with CRLM between 2005 and 2007 were registered from 134 departments of 127 institutions (64%) among 209 departments (from 201 institutions) that agreed to participate in this study...

Right hepatectomy is a standard anatomical procedure used worldwide, and consists of two important steps: access to the portal pedicle at the hepatic hilus and approach through the right hepatic vein. With interest in the early work in the field of right hepatectomy, we searched for official documents, published not only in English but also non-English languages for insights on the history of the great work conducted by pioneer liver surgeons in the East and West. To discuss anatomical right hepatectomy, it is important to consider several issues, including liver anatomy, other anatomical liver resection procedures, control of vascular in-flow and out-flow, operative procedures or approaches, preoperative management and other related issues...

BACKGROUND: The use of preoperative biliary drainage (PBD) for managing patients with periampullary cancer awaiting surgery remains controversial. The impact of PBD status and type on surgical outcomes has not been established, leading to a lack of consensus. We aimed to evaluate the impact of PBD on short-term surgical outcomes in curatively resected periampullary cancer. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed data from patients undergoing curative periampullary cancer resection...

Systematic resection of the tumor-bearing portal territory is reportedly correlated with an improved survival of patients with liver tumors, especially in hepatocellular carcinoma. Despite advances in surgical management, however, anatomic resection of deeply/centrally located tumors remains a challenging procedure not only with technical difficulty but also because of decreased hepatic functional reserve frequently observed due to underlying liver disease. In this report, we have reported a novel technique that allows a promising approach for deeply/centrally located tumors with maximizing both the surgical and oncological safety...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatic fistula (PF) is a major complication following pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). Pancreatic texture is a risk factor for PF, but its evaluation depends on the subjective judgment. The aim of this study was to investigate whether preoperative endoscopic ultrasonography-elastography (EUS-EG), which objectively assesses tissue elasticity, predict the development of PF following PD. METHODS: Fifty-nine patients who underwent EUS-EG before PD and had pancreas parenchyma histologically evaluated were included...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study was to microscopically assess the tissue-sparing potential of contemporary radiofrequency-assisted liver resection (RF-LR) techniques. METHODS: Twenty-four pigs were subjected to either (1) partial hepatectomy (PH) using the sequential-coagulate-cut (SCC) technique (group SCC, n = 6) using a monopolar electrode, the technique using the bipolar electrode Habib-4X (group H, n = 6) or the "crush-clamp" technique (group CC, n = 6); or (2) sham operation (group Sham, n = 6)...
