BACKGROUND: Complete mesocolic excision (CME) with central vascular ligation (CVL) should be employed for the treatment of colon cancer patients because of its superior oncological outcomes. However, this technique is technically challenging in laparoscopic right hemicolectomy because of the anatomical complexity of the transverse mesocolon. METHODS: We focused on the embryology and anatomy of the transverse mesocolon to overcome the difficulty of this surgery. The validity and efficacy of a cranial approach in achieving CME with CVL in laparoscopic right hemicolectomy was elucidated from the embryological point of view...

The single port laparoscopic method was first used in 1999 by Bresadola for cholecystectomy. Nearly a decade later, in 2008, the first single port right hemicolectomy was reported by Bucher and others in a case involving an ascending colon polyp (1,2). The continuous technological evolutional lows the first single port right hemicolectomy 17 years after the first laparoscopic hemicolectomy (1991) which was initially met with reluctance and after has gained a well-established place in the range of colorectal surgery (2)...

With the development in past 20 years, the utilization of the laparoscopic surgery, which is the main trend in minimally invasive surgery for colorectal cancer, has tremendously changed. Minimally invasive surgery for colorectal cancer is now at a high level platform after going through the exploration at the very beginning and rapid development in the period of standardizing and promoting the regulations. Nowadays, the unique advantage that the laparoscopy owns is high definition and enlargement of the image, along with the establishment of the key note in series of laparoscopic complete mesocolic excision and the improvement of surgical instruments and methods make the operation skills accurate and normative in exploration of correct plane, high ligation of vessels and protection of nerve during the lymph node dissection of colorectal surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Complete mesocolic excision is currently recognized as a standard procedure for colon cancer. Gastroepiploic, infrapyloric, and superficial pancreatic head lymph node metastases in the gastrocolic ligament have been reported for colon cancer close to the hepatic flexure. We sought to investigate metastases in the gastrocolic ligament in colon cancer close to the hepatic flexure. METHODS: This was a single-center retrospective study. All patients with T2 or deeper invasive colon cancer in the relevant tumor location who underwent laparoscopic right hemicolectomy or extended right hemicolectomy at our institution between 1 April 2011 and 31 March 2015 were included...

INTRODUCTION Hemicolectomies are not tailored in right-sided colon cancer resections, despite significant variation in the incidence and origin of the right colic artery (RCA). Early evidence suggests that removal of the relevant lymphovascular package and associated cancer as part of complete mesocolic excision (CME), rather than the entire right colon, may produce better outcomes. Advancing laparoscopic techniques are making this possible, and so it is increasingly important to more precisely define the anatomy of the RCA...

An appendiceal mucocele (AM) is an uncommon differential in the patient being evaluated for acute appendicitis. Although often asymptomatic, AMs can clinically mimic acute appendicitis, and preoperative distinction between these processes facilitates optimal management. We report the case of a 60-year-old male with an AM presenting with nausea and periumbilical pain radiating to the right lower quadrant. Literature relevant to the diagnosis and treatment of AMs is reviewed, with emphasis on diagnosis through radiographic imaging and surgical management...

INTRODUCTION: Intussusception refers to the telescoping of a segment of bowel into the lumen of an adjacent segment. While pediatric intussusception is common and generally idiopathic, adult intussusception is exceedingly rare and is usually attributable to a pathologic lead point. PRESENTATION OF CASE: 37-year-old man who presented with abdominal pain, and was preoperatively diagnosed with a colo-colonic intussusception. Intraoperatively, the lead point was found to be congenital bands, and there was no evidence of underlying malignancy...

A 75-year-old man tested positive for occult blood in the stool. A subsequent examination indicated concurrent locally advanced cancer (cT3) at the hepatic flexure and lower rectum cancer in the external anal sphincter. Because of the locally advanced rectal cancer (cT4), preoperative chemoradiotherapy was administered. First, laparoscopic right hemicolectomy and colostomy were performed at the sigmoid colon. Chemoradiotherapy for rectal cancer was initiated on day 18 after the surgeries. Seven weeks after chemoradiotherapy had been completed, laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection and right lateral pelvic lymph node dissection were performed...

We analyzed the clinicopathological characteristics, preoperative diagnosis, surgical operations, chemotherapy regimens, and prognoses of 6 patients with primary small intestinal carcinomas that were resected at our hospital between January 2004 and December 2014. The patients(3 men and 3 women)were 65 to 77 years old(mean: 70 years old). We were able to diagnose 3 patients pathologically before surgery via double balloon endoscopy and endoscopy of the large intestine. We performed partial resection of the jejunum in 3 patients, partial resection of the ileum in 1 patient, laparoscopic ileocecal resection in 1 patient, and right hemicolectomy in 1 patient...

PURPOSE: The present study evaluated the safety and feasibility of this caudal-to-cranial laparoscopic dissection approach for the curative resection of right-sided colon cancer. To the best of our knowledge, no study has reported the caudal-to-cranial approach in the laparoscopic right colectomy with curative intent for colon cancer. METHOD: The key procedure of the caudal-to-cranial approach is the commencement of the dissection at the mesentery root, thus entering into the Toldt's space before the mesenteric vessels are accessed...
