Clinical outcomes of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) have not been established in terms of HCC recurrence and MM deterioration after LDLT. A 51-year-old man with chronic hepatitis B was diagnosed with HCC and MM. Since the patient also had decompensated liver cirrhosis (LC), he underwent LDLT prior to autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) to prevent fulminant hepatitis due to HBV reactivation. The patient received Epstein-Barr virus prophylaxis and a triple immunosuppressive regimen of tacrolimus, everolimus, and steroid after LDLT...

Kyung Ha Lee, Jin Soo Kim, Ji Yeon Kim
Purpose: There is no standard consensus for the ligation level of the inferior mesenteric artery during radical resection of sigmoid colon cancer. Especially, there is little research about low ligation combined with D3 dissection. The study was performed to compare feasibility and oncologic safety between low ligation with D3 dissection to high ligation in intermediately advanced sigmoid colon cancer. Methods: From January 2008 to December 2013, 134 patients who underwent radical surgery for cT3N0M0 sigmoid colon cancer were evaluated retrospectively...

Dawon Park, Se-Jin Baek, Jung-Myun Kwak, Jin Kim, Seon-Hahn Kim
Purpose: An oxaliplatin-based regimen is the most common adjuvant chemotherapy for patients with stage II/III colorectal cancer, but many patients experience dose reduction or early termination of chemotherapy due to side effects. We conducted this study to verify the range of reduction with oncologic safety. Methods: Patients with stage II/III colorectal cancer who received adjuvant FOLFOX chemotherapy were enrolled in this study. The total amount of oxaliplatin administered per patient was calculated as a percentile based on 12 cycles of full-dose FOLFOX as a standard dose...

Hongeun Lee, Wooil Kwon, Youngmin Han, Jae Ri Kim, Sun-Whe Kim, Jin-Young Jang
Purpose: Increasing surgical expertise in minimally invasive surgery has allowed laparoscopic surgery to be performed in many abdominal surgeries. Laparoscopic choledochal cyst excision and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy are challenging and sophisticated surgeries because of the difficult anastomosis. Recent advances in robotic surgery have enabled more delicate and precise movements, and Endowrist instruments allow for securing sutures during anastomosis. This study aimed to compare surgical outcomes of laparoscopic and robotic hepaticojejunostomy in choledochal cyst excision...

Caroli disease is a rare congenital disorder characterized by nonobstructive dilatation of intrahepatic ducts. In cases with symptomatic intrahepatic manifestations, treatment should correspond to the type with hepatic resection for localized disease and transplantation for diffuse forms. If possible, complete resection of the cysts can cure the symptoms and avoid the risk of malignancy. A 66-year-old woman presented to Wuxi Xishan People's Hospital with recurrent intermittent upper quadrant abdominal pain...

A 58-year-old man underwent laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) with Billroth I gastroduodenostomy due to early gastric cancer. During surgery, the perigastric vessels were ligated with Hem-o-Lok clips. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) 6 months later showed a fungating mass at the anastomosis site. Repeat EGD 1 year after LADG showed a Hem-o-Lok clip at the fungating mass lesion. Because the patient was asymptomatic, with no major abnormalities on clinical examination, and endoscopic removal of the clip would have been difficult due to the presence of adhesions and inflammation, no attempt was made to remove the clip...
