Taizo Hibi, Susumu Eguchi, Hiroto Egawa
In this editorial, we aimed to provide an outline of the world history of liver transplantation (LT), with a special focus on the innovation, development, and current controversies of living donor (LD) LT from East Asian and Western perspectives. In 1963, Starzl et al. (University of Colorado, U.S.) performed the world's first human LT for a 3-year-old child with biliary atresia (1). The donor was a 3-year-old patient who had suffered from brain death following neurosurgery. This article is protected by copyright...

BACKGROUNDS: Age-related events, such as cardiopulmonary complications, delirium, transfer to rehabilitation facility, and dependency are a major problem after hepatic resection in 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: Minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy (MIDP) has gained in popularity recently. However, the consensus whether to preserve the spleen or not remains inconsistent. 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...

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)...

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...

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...

BACKGROUND: The rate of preoperative biliary drainage for pancreaticoduodenectomy has been increasing despite most recent evidence that favors avoiding it. Only a few studies have focused on late surgical complications - biliary stricture after pancreaticoduodenectomy and have produced only inconclusive results. We evaluate the role of preoperative biliary drainage in the formation of biliary stricture after pancreaticoduodenectomy. METHODS: The Taiwan National Health Insurance Program is a mandatory health care plan that covers nearly the entire population of 23 million in this country...

BACKGROUND: Imaging study cannot identify patients with potential low-risk for lymph node (LN) metastasis in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). The purpose of this study was to identify a low-risk group for LN metastasis in ICC using preoperatively available factors. METHODS: Data from 127 consecutive patients, who underwent curative intent surgery for ICC at Kyoto University Hospital and Kitano Hospital between 2002 and 2016, were retrospectively analyzed. By using only preoperative data, multiple linear regression model for predicting LN metastasis was developed...

REVIEW
Seiki Tashiro, Hidenori Miyake, Kazuhito Rokutan
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are rapidly synthesized into cells in response to various types of physical or chemical insults and induce potent resistance to the stressors. A stress-inducible HSP70 is not expressed in normal conditions, but once HSP70 is excessively induced under various environmental stresses, HSP70-expressing cells can survive even under lethal conditions. In this review, we focused on the potential role of HSPs particularly HSP70 in liver surgery. A non-toxic HSP70 inducer, geranylgeranylacetone (GGA), has been introduced to exert a potent cytoprotective action against liver injury after ischemia/reperfusion, massive hepatectomy and liver transplantation in animal experiments...

REVIEW
Junji Furuse, Junji Shibahara, Masanori Sugiyama
While surgery currently remains the only potentially curative treatment available for pancreatic cancer, only 20% to 30% of patients have resectable disease at diagnosis. Recently, with the introduction of intensive chemotherapy regimens such as oxaliplatin, irinotecan, fluorouracil plus leucovorin (FOLFIRINOX) and gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel, for the treatment of unresectable pancreatic cancer, the antitumor activity and overall survival in patients with pancreatic cancer have dramatically improved. These advances in intensive chemotherapy have led to the possibility of conversion of unresectable disease to resectable disease, and it has been reported that more than 20% of pancreatic cancer patients with unresectable locally advanced disease at diagnosis undergo successful conversion surgery after FOLFIRINOX therapy...
