Early superficial non-ampullary duodenal tumors are particularly rare, the clinical manifestations, including typical endoscopic or imaging features, and treatment methods are not well-characterized. The present case report describes a case of an asymptomatic 74-year-old male who presented to the Taizhou People's Hospital (Taizhou, China) for a regular health screening, where a primary superficial non-ampullary duodenal tumor was identified. Upper endoscopy revealed ~1.2 cm lesion in the second portion of the duodenum...

Objective: To investigate the occurrence of lymph node micrometastasis in pancreatic head carcinoma and analyze its effect on the prognosis of patients. Methods: The lymph nodes in 40 patients who received pancreatoduodenectomy with regional lymphadenectomy were dissected by surgical magnification microscopy. The expression of cytokeration(AE1/E3) were detected by immunohistochemical staining in the pathologically negative lymph nodes. The frequency of lymph nodes metastases and micrometastases, as well as the relationship between metastasis and prognosis were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Lateral lymph node dissection (LLND) is performed for advanced rectal cancers in Japan; however, it can cause sexual and urinary dysfunction. The incidence of lateral LN metastasis is estimated at 7-13.9%; therefore, excessive rectal surgery with LLND should be avoided, especially for prophylactic purposes. To identify the patients who require LLND, we examined metastases in perirectal LNs by using a one-step nucleic acid amplification (OSNA) assay to predict lateral LN metastases...

BACKGROUND: Extended-field chemoradiation therapy is usually performed in patients with locally advanced cervical cancer (LACC) and paraaortic (PA) node metastases. Considering the very low rate of skip metastases above inferior mesenteric artery, ilio-inframesenteric paraaortic lymph node dissection (IM-PALND) seems to be an adequate pattern of PALND. Our objective was to assess the accuracy of this management to determine PA nodal status in comparison with infrarenal paraaortic lymphadenectomy (IR-PALND) in case of squamous or glandular cervical cancer...

INTRODUCTION: In the recent past, both clinically node-positive and node-negative but sentinel node-positive patients underwent axillary lymph node dissection (ALND), although the two groups seem to have substantially different degree of nodal involvement. METHODS: Data on consecutive primary breast cancer patients with documented axillary ultrasound (AXUS) results who underwent ALND between January 2003 and December 2015 either because of AXUS-guided fine needle aspiration (A-FNAC) results or because of a positive sentinel lymph node were retrospectively analysed...

A 66-year-old man underwent a right upper lobectomy and lymph node dissection for lung cancer. We confirmed a milky white pleural effusion after diet initiation on the first postoperative day, and a chylothorax was diagnosed. The patient began a f at-restricted diet; however, the pleural effusion did not decrease. Therefore, we performed VATS(video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery)1 week after surgery with good results. Early VATS for a postoperative chylothorax was useful.

OBJECTIVE: Previous studies did not focus on the differences in the extent of cervical lymph node (LN) dissection according to coexistent Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and its clinical impact. We aimed to determine whether extensive cervical LN dissection is responsible for favorable clinical outcomes in PTC patients with HT and whether coexistence of HT itself has an independent protective effect regardless of LN status. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study PATIENTS: 1,369 patients with PTC who underwent total thyroidectomy with central compartment neck dissection...

In Germany high-resolution sonography using the color duplex mode in addition to computed tomography (CT) is a well-established and proven method in the context of restaging after primary therapy of head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC). There are no international evidence-based restaging guidelines. Decisions concerning neck dissection (ND) after primary radiochemotherapy (RCT) are often individually derived in the respective tumor conferences and are therefore subject to variance. Compared to the UK or USA, in Germany there is a high level of expertise in the use of ultrasound in combination with CT for the routine restaging of HNSCC after RCT...

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a relatively rare condition where the abdominal and/or thoracic organ is positioned as a "mirror image" of the normal position. We are presenting a video of robotic distal gastrectomy performed in a 52-year-old female known to have SIT. Preoperative investigations revealed the patient has an early gastric cancer at the antrum. Ports were placed as mirror image to our usual port placement and upon exploration, the liver is visualized on the left side of the abdomen and the spleen is on the right...
