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...

INTRODUCTION: Jejunogastric intussusception is a rare complication after gastric operation. Intussusception after gastric operation occurs mostly at the gastrojejunal anastomosis site and Braun anastomosis site of Billroth II reconstruction, and at the Y anastomosis site of Roux-en-Y reconstruction. However, jejunogastric intussusception after distal gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction is very rare. We report a surgical case of jejunogastric intussusception after distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer treatment...

BACKGROUND: The conventional Billroth I anastomosis (cBIA) after laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) is performed through circular staple extracorporeally. Now, delta-shaped anastomosis (DA), which is performed using a linear stapler intracorporeally, becomes popular. We conducted a meta-analysis to compare the effectiveness and safety between the 2 techniques. METHODS: A systematic literature search was performed using PubMed, Ovid, and the Cochrane Library Central...

BACKGROUND: Situs inversus is a rare congenital condition that is currently classified into two types: complete situs inversus (situs inversus totalis, SIT) and partial situs inversus (situs inversus partialis, SIP). In SIP patients, some organs are inverted and others are in their expected position, and individual patient variation in organ position increases surgical difficulty. Several surgeons have performed laparoscopic or robotic surgeries in situs inversus patients, but almost all were SIT patients...

We herein report a case of neuroendocrine carcinoma of the gastric stump found 47 years after Billroth II gastric resection for a benign gastric ulcer. A 74-year-old man was referred to another hospital with melena. Endoscopic examination revealed a localized ulcerative lesion at the gastrojejunal anastomosis. The diagnosis by endoscopic biopsy was neuroendocrine carcinoma. A total gastrectomy of the remnant stomach with D2 lymphadenectomy was performed at our hospital. The lesion invaded the subserosa, and metastasis was found in two of nine the lymph nodes retrieved...

A 77-year-old female case who underwent laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with D2 dissection, Billroth I reconstruction for gastric cancer. Since the stage was III A, she received an adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 after surgery. However, about 2 years after surgery, she was referred to our hospital for anorexia and vomiting. As a result of the examination, we diagnosed stenosis due to peritoneal recurrence near the anastomotic site. We performed laparoscopic remnant gastrojejunal bypass (Billroth II method, with Braun anastomosis)...

A jejunal tumor was found with computed tomography in a 79-year-old man with a history of gastrectomy reconstructed with Billroth II method for gastric ulcers. The tumor with contrast effect extended into the afferent loop and invaded the retroperitoneum in the dorsal side. The tumor occupied the jejunal lumen in endoscopic examination. Malignant spindle cells were found in the biopsy specimen. An increase of MDM2 and CDK4 signals were observed in fluorescence in situ hybridization( FISH). Given the preoperative diagnosis of jejunal liposarcoma, we performed a resection of the tumor with partial jejunectomy and partial gastrectomy...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic surgery for gastric tumor is considered a demanding procedure because of lymph node dissection and reconstruction. Billroth-I (B-I) reconstruction after laparoscopic distal gastrectomy is commonly performed extracorporeally because of the complexity of an intracorporeal procedure. Robotic surgery overcomes some limitations of laparoscopy, allowing to reproduce the basic maneuvers of open surgery. We describe a new technique to perform robotic B-I anastomosis. METHODS: Between January 2012 and February 2015, 5 patients underwent distal gastrectomy with intracorporeal B-I-stapled anastomosis...

Over many centuries, wounds of the heart were thought to be fatal. With the introduction of first anaesthesia and then antiseptic surgery in the second half of the 19th century, there was an explosion in surgery; the abdominal cavity, the chest, the skull were explored and operated upon and yet the heart was considered to be a 'no go' region of the body. One of the greatest and most innovative surgeons of that time, Theodor Billroth of Vienna, who must be considered one of the fathers of modern surgery, with pioneering work on many parts of the body, wrote: 'The surgeon who attempts to suture a wound of the heart should lose the respect of his colleagues'...

Gastritis cystica polyposa is a polypoid lesion that arises from the gastric mucosa at the gastrojejunal anastomotic site and is characterized by cystic dilation of the gastric glands. A 78-year-old man who underwent distal gastrectomy for a gastric ulcer with Billroth II reconstruction approximately 40 years previously, exhibited a gastritis cystica polyposa at the anastomotic site. Ulceration was observed on an annual endoscopic examination. Endoscopic ultrasonography revealed a submucosal hypoechoic mass with multiple cystic lesions...
