BACKGROUND: With the introduction of complete mesocolic excision (CME) and the application of laparoscopic technique, surgery for colon cancer has become more standardized and the curative effect has improved [1]. The key points in laparoscopic right hemicolectomy are high ligation of main vessels and root dissection of lymph nodes. The wide range of variations in vascular architecture and intraoperative bleeding are common causes of prolonged surgical time, wound hemorrhage, and even transfer to the opening operation...

A 64-year-old white woman presented with cholestatic jaundice, weight loss and a solid lesion in the pancreas head. At multislice computed tomography, a superior mesenteric vein (SMV) and one of it tributaries showed signs of tumor infiltration. At surgery, a venous occlusion test applied to the infiltrated tributary of the SMV showed immediate venous congestion in two-thirds of the distal small intestine. No reconstruction attempt was made due to the small size of the vessel. A biliodigestive anastomosis and lymph node biopsy was performed...

AIM: Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for locally advanced rectal cancer aims to downstage prior to definitive management. Repeat imaging assessment of the tumour post-therapy has implications for treatment. Our aim is to assess if the Inferior Mesenteric Vein (IMV) diameter measured on CT can be used as a surrogate marker for evaluation of tumour response to neoadjuvant treatment. METHOD: IMV diameter was assessed in patients with and without locally advanced rectal cancer, pre- and post-radiotherapy to ascertain if IMV diameter is a surrogate marker of tumour response...

AIM: Extrahepatic portal vein obstruction (EHPVO) is characterized by features of recent thrombosis or portal hypertension with portal cavernoma as a sequel of portal vein obstruction. Imaging of spleno-portal axis is the mainstay for the diagnosis of EHPVO. The aim of this study is to analyze the role of imaging in the preoperative assessment of the portal venous system in children with EHPVO. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A hospital-based cross-sectional study was conducted on twenty children with EHPVO aged between 1 and 18 years over a period of 1 year...

Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) is a severe pathological condition characterized by signs and symptoms of bowel obstruction, intestinal necrosis resulting from acute and/or chronic inadequate blood perfusion, in the absence of an organic vascular obstruction detectable by imaging techniques. A 64 years old man case with a history of Parkinson's disease in high-functioning levodopa treatment is presented. Clinical and radiological signs of intestinal obstruction were observed. He underwent surgical operation with total colectomy and terminal ileostomy for generalized secondary peritonitis due to perforation of sigmoid colon...

BACKGROUND: Mesenteric cyst is a rare clinical entity especially in pregnancy; therefore, few cases have been reported in the literature. The standard method of their treatment is surgical excision either with laparotomy or laparoscopy. In addition, mesenteric vein thrombosis is a rare and life-threatening condition in pregnancy and needs immediate treatment because it can lead to intestinal necrotic ischemia. This is the first report of the coexistence of mesenteric cysts and mesenteric vein thrombosis during gestation...

There is an increased interest in extending surgical criteria for pancreatic cancer by performing pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) combined with portal vein (PV) or superior mesenteric vein (SMV) resection and reconstruction for borderline resectable patients. However, whether this procedure suitable for elderly patients remains unclear. Here, we studied cases of pancreatic cancer treatment in our medical center to evaluate feasibility and safety of this procedure in the elderly.Eighty-three patients 65 years of age or older who underwent PD from January 2009 to March 2014 were divided into 2 groups: PD only (Group A, 52 cases), and PD combined with PV/SMV resection and reconstruction (Group B, 31 cases)...

The role of nodal station No. 14v (along the superior mesenteric vein) in lymphadenectomy for distal gastric cancer remains elusive. A 73-year-old woman underwent endoscopic submucosal dissection for gastric cancer, and was referred to our division for additional surgery because of pathologically non-curative resection. A laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with D1+ dissection was performed, with a final diagnosis of pT1bN1M0, Stage IB (2 nodal metastases to No. 6). Four months post-surgery, abdominal computed tomography revealed a 14-mm solitary nodule along the superior mesenteric vein...

Splanchnic vein thrombosis (SVT) and cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT) are uncommon manifestation of venous thromboembolism (VTE), occurring less frequently than deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities and pulmonary embolism. SVT encompasses portal vein thrombosis, mesenteric vein thrombosis, splenic vein thrombosis and the Budd-Chiari syndrome. It is therefore a heterogeneous disease, with differences in clinical manifestations according to the site of thrombosis. CVT includes thrombosis of the cortical or deep cerebral veins and thrombosis of the major dural venous sinuses...

Paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare, acquired, life-threatening haematological disorder. It is characterised by complement induced haemolytic anaemia, thrombosis and impaired bone marrow function. Thrombosis most commonly occurs in the hepatic, portal, superior mesenteric and cerebral veins. A22-year female, previously diagnosed with severe aplastic anaemia treated with anti-lymphocyte globulin (ALG) and cyclosporine, had become transfusion independent for more than 10 years. She presented with abdominal pain and vomiting, initially diagnosed with portal and superior mesenteric vein thrombosis...

OBJECTIVE: Phosphatidylserine exposure mediates platelet procoagulant function and regulates platelet life span. Apoptotic, necrotic, and integrin-mediated mechanisms have been implicated as intracellular determinants of platelet phosphatidylserine exposure. Here, we investigate (1) the role of mitochondrial events in platelet phosphatidylserine exposure initiated by these distinct stimuli and (2) the cellular interactions of the procoagulant platelet in vitro and in vivo. APPROACH AND RESULTS: Key mitochondrial events were examined, including cytochrome c release and inner mitochondrial membrane (IMM) disruption...

BACKGROUND: Although ectopic pancreatic tissue is common in the upper gastrointestinal tract, the incidence of ectopic pancreatic tissue in the jejunum is low, and malignant transformation in ectopic pancreatic tissue is rare. Furthermore, pancreatic-type acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) developing in the jejunum and ACC accompanied by tumor thrombus are extremely rare. CASE PRESENTATION: A 78-year-old-woman presented with melena. Abdominal computed tomography images and endoscopic examination revealed a submucosal jejunal mass with tumor thrombus extending into a jejunal vein...

BACKGROUND: The guidelines for the classification of the resectability of pancreatic cancer established by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network can be difficult to utilize in clinical practice. We evaluated novel criteria proposed by the Japan Pancreas Society. METHODS: We analyzed 382 patients with pancreatic cancer between 2001 and 2015 for survival differences among subgroups classified according to the Japan Pancreas Society classification. Overall survival and disease-free survival were expressed as median values and compared with data based on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network classification, and differences in initial patterns of recurrence were analyzed...

The advancement of laparoscopic surgery serves as a trigger for better understanding of the vascular structure at the inferior border of the pancreas, especially Henle trunk. Henle trunk was first found as convergence to superior mesenteric vein (SMV) conjoined by sub-right colon vein (SRCV) and right gastroepiploic vein (RGEV), but decades later, anterior superior pancreatic duodenal vein (ASPDV) was described as another conjoint vein of Henle trunk. These tributaries are the basic elements of Henle trunk in early years' study...

RATIONALE: Portal vein thrombosis is a complication after liver transplantation and cavernous transformation of the portal vein (CTPV) is a result of portal vein thrombosis, with symptoms of portal hypertension revealed by an enhanced CT scan. Meso-Rex bypass is an artificial shunt connecting the left portal vein to the superior mesenteric vein and is mainly used for idiopathic cavernomas. This technique is also used for post-transplant portal vein thrombosis in pediatric patients thereby bypassing obstructed sites of the extrahepatic portal vein...

BACKGROUND: Sepsis is a severe inflammatory response to infection. Excessive compensation to inflammation leads to dysregulated immune response that ultimately results in organ damage and lethality of sepsis. This study administered glutamine (GLN) in the early or late phase of sepsis to investigate its effects on regulating leukocyte programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) and its ligand (programmed cell death ligand 1 [PD-L1]) expression, macrophage function, inflammation, and acute kidney injury in sepsis...

BACKGROUND: Superior mesenteric vein-portal vein confluence resection combined with pancreatoduodenectomy (SMPVrPD) is occasionally required for resection of pancreatic head tumors. It remains unclear whether such situations require splenic vein (SV) reconstruction for decompression of left-sided portal hypertension (LSPH). METHODS: The data from 93 of 104 patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) for pancreatic head malignancies were reviewed. Surgical outcomes in three groups-standard PD (control group), PD combined with vascular resection and SV preservation (SVp group), and SMPVrPD with SV resection (SVr group)-were compared...
