The Glissonian approach, due to its simplicity of procedure, is a technical procedure widely used in open hepatectomy. However, it is not easily applicable in the setting of the total laparoscopic approach because of movement restriction. We herein propose a new and simple method of performing hemihepatectomy by Glissonian approach called temporary inflow control of the Glissonian pedicle (TICGL) technique. Dissection of the Glisson pedicle from the liver parenchyma is done until the posterior margin of the pedicle is visualized, and is clamped with bulldog clamps...

When performing laparoscopic gastrectomy, suturing the intestinal anastomosis presents one of the greatest challenges. The V-Loc unidirectional barbed suture has been introduced to eliminate the need to tie knots during closure. This device offers a fast, secure, and effective alternative to conventional suture repair during laparoscopic surgery. However, there have been reported cases of surgical complications associated with the use of barbed suture devices. We describe here a case of small bowel obstruction resulting from improper use of barbed suture during total laparoscopic distal gastrectomy performed for gastric cancer...

Sentinel lymph node biopsy has been developed as the standard of treatment in breast cancer. Status of axillary sentinel lymph node is known to be a significant prognostic factor. Nevertheless, involvement of an intramammary lymph node with metastasis in breast cancer is a rare radiological and clinical presentation, and with extracapsular extravasation even more uncommon. Historically, reported series of patients with intramammary lymph node diagnosed by final histological examination are small in number and clinical significance of metastasis is still unclear...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to evaluate the situations and problems of the current health insurance fees for trauma surgeries. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records and billing data from trauma surgeries performed in the hospital from August 2012 to July 2014. The name and number of surgeries were investigated and the code and number of operations prescribed by surgeons were compared with the number of cases actually billed to insurance. In addition, the results returned by the Health Insurance Review & Assessment Services (HIRA) after deduction were investigated and compared to verify the insurance review findings...

PURPOSE: Iliac vein compression is a known culprit of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). In contrast, the compression may prevent the pulmonary embolism (PE). The aim of this study was to evaluate the anatomic and clinical risk factors of PE in patients with lower extremity DVT. METHODS: PE was evaluated using chest computed tomography in patients with lower extremity DVT. The patients were classified into group I (DVT without PE) and group II (DVT with PE) and analyzed to clarify the anatomic and clinical risk factors associated with PE in patients with DVT...

PURPOSE: Routine evaluation of kidney donors occasionally reveals an incidental renal mass with an otherwise satisfactory kidney function. The use of such a kidney with an enhancing mass for transplantation is a matter of debate owing to a possible risk of transmission of donor malignancies. We report our experience of kidney transplants from donors with renal cell carcinoma, after ex vivo resection of the renal mass. METHODS: Two women aged 44 and 56 years were diagnosed with enhancing renal masses measuring 0...

PURPOSE: Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has some limitations such as poor sonic window and injury to adjacent organs. The laparoscopic approach has been suggested as an alternative option. The aim of this study was to show the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic RFA for single, small (≤3 cm), and primary or recurrent HCC that is not suitable for percutaneous RFA or surgical resection. METHODS: We reviewed the cases of 37 patients (32 men and 5 women, mean age 61 ± 8...

Jinsoo Rhu, Jin Seok Heo, Seong Ho Choi, Dong Wook Choi, Jong Man Kim, Jae-Won Joh, Choon Hyuck David Kwon
PURPOSE: It is believed that blood from the superior mesenteric vein and splenic vein mixes incompletely in the portal vein and maintains a streamline flow influencing its anatomic distribution. Although several experimental studies have demonstrated the existence of streamlining, clinical studies have shown conflicting results. We investigated whether streamlining of portal vein affects the lobar distribution of colorectal liver metastases and estimated its impact on survival. METHODS: Data of patients who underwent hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases were retrospectively collected...

PURPOSE: Patients with stage IIIC breast cancer are classified as having pathologic nodal stage 3 (pN3) according to the 7th American Joint Committee on Cancer Tumor Node Metastasis (AJCC TNM) staging system. However, the prognosis of patients with this stage is still highly variable. This study was carried out to investigate the validity of metastatic axillary lymph node ratio (mALNR) as a predictor of long-term prognosis in stage IIIC breast cancer. METHODS: Medical records of 297 patients who underwent surgery with more than level II axillary dissection for breast cancer and who were diagnosed with pN3 by pathology between 1990 and 2010, were reviewed...

PURPOSE: We evaluated the clinical role of rapid next-generation sequencing (NGS) for identifying BRCA1/2 mutations compared to traditional Sanger sequencing. METHODS: Twenty-four paired samples from 12 patients were analyzed in this prospective study to compare the performance of NGS to the Sanger method. Both NGS and Sanger sequencing were performed in 2 different laboratories using blood samples from patients with breast cancer. We then analyzed the accuracy of NGS in terms of variant calling and determining concordance rates of BRCA1/2 mutation detection...

Spontaneous dissections of visceral arteries without aortic involvement are very rare. The etiologies of these entities are unclear and their clinical managements remain controversial. We report a case of spontaneous multiple dissections affecting 4 visceral arteries including the superior mesenteric artery, the celiac artery and the bilateral renal arteries. The patient was managed conservatively and endovascularly. The clinical manifestation markedly improved and laboratory tests returned to normal limits within 1 week...

Jeong-Ik Park, Young-Kil Choi, Bo-Hyun Jung
Bile duct injury is one of the most serious complications of both laparoscopic and open cholecystectomy. Isolated bile duct injury can occur from the misidentification of aberrant right hepatic ducts, and it is troublesome because the early diagnosis is easy to miss and the definite treatment is controversial. We report a case of an isolated right posterior sectoral duct injury following cholecystectomy managed successfully with acetic acid sclerotherapy combined with coil embolization for a fistula tract.

PURPOSE: Liver volumetry is a vital component in living donor liver transplantation to determine an adequate graft volume that meets the metabolic demands of the recipient and at the same time ensures donor safety. Most institutions use preoperative contrast-enhanced CT image-based software programs to estimate graft volume. The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of 2 liver volumetry programs (Rapidia vs. Dr. Liver) in preoperative right liver graft estimation compared with real graft weight...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) is routinely performed under general, not regional anesthesia. This study assessed the feasibility, efficacy, and side effects of combined spinal-epidural anesthesia (CSEA) in LA. METHODS: Thirty-three American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) physical status classification grade I patients underwent LA under CSEA. CSEA was performed using the needle-through-needle technique at the L3-L4 interspace. Preoperative and postoperative adverse events related to CSEA, patient satisfaction, and postoperative pain levels were recorded...
