INTRODUCTION: Although laparoscopic surgery uses relatively small incisions, incisional hernia after surgery is not uncommon. However, the incidence of incisional hernia and its risk factors are not well known. The purpose of our study was to investigate risk factors for incisional hernia after laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery. METHODS: The study group consisted of 212 patients who underwent laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery at Hiroshima Prefectural Hospital between November 2008 and October 2013...

Background: Germline mutations in succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) are associated with multifocal cancers: pituitary gland tumors, pheochromocytomas, paragangliomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, and renal-cell carcinomas (RCCs). SDH-deficient renal-cell carcinoma (SDH-RCC) was first identified in 2004 as an inherited kidney cancer with mutations in the SDH gene. SDH consists of A, B, C, and D units. Mutation in the SDHB gene is the most common mutation in SDH-deficient RCCs. Case Presentation: We report a case of a 51-year-old healthy man diagnosed with SDHB germline mutation and RCCs...

We evaluated the effect of continuous perfusion of esmolol on cardiovascular risk during curative laparoscopic surgery for gastrointestinal cancer in elderly patients. Sixty patients with gastrointestinal cancer, aged from 60 to 80 years, were divided into an esmolol group (ES, n = 30) and a control group (NS, n = 30). ES patients were treated with esmolol at a dose of 0.3 mg/kg 3 min before tracheal intubation, and received continuous perfusion of esmolol at a dose of 50 μg/kg/min during operation. In NS, esmolol was replaced by saline...

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...

REVIEW
Christina L Cheng, Craig Rezac
Studies of laparoscopic approaches in colorectal surgery support the use of such methods. Compared with the open approach, laparoscopy reduces rates of postoperative complications and decreases length of stay, while providing equivalent oncologic outcomes. Nevertheless, much of colorectal surgery is still being performed by the open approach. This may be partly due to the technical challenges in performing laparoscopy, particularly when working in narrow spaces such as the pelvis. Moreover, some of the current literature has questioned the oncologic outcomes after laparoscopic surgery for rectal cancer...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic surgery for gastric cancer requires traction or compression of the pancreas, with the extent depending on the anatomical position of the pancreas. This study investigated the impact of the position of the pancreas on postoperative complications and drain amylase concentrations after laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG). METHODS: Gastric cancer patients who underwent LDG were assessed retrospectively. The following anatomical parameters were measured retrospectively in preoperative computed tomography sagittal projections: the length of the vertical line between the pancreas and the aorta (P-A length), representing the height of the slope looking down the celiac artery from the top of the pancreas, and the angle between a line drawn from the upper border of the pancreas to the root of the celiac artery and the aorta (UP-CA angle), representing the steepness of the slope...

BACKGROUND: Accurate preoperative tumor staging of gastric cancer is indispensable with expansion of indications for laparoscopic surgery and endoscopic resection. It is important to distinguish mucosal cancer (T1a) in smaller lesion and differentiate early gastric cancer (EGC) in larger lesion considering endoscopic resection indication and laparoscopic surgery indication. We evaluated the clinical outcomes of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) for the decision of treatment strategy of gastric cancer compared with pathological staging...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Laser-based photodynamic endoscopic diagnosis (LPDED) is a type of endoscopic diagnosis that uses the fluorescence caused by the photochemical reaction that occurs when a fluorescent substance is irradiated by a light of a specific wavelength. Although 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) can detect early gastric cancer (EGC) during LPDED, there is an unresolved issue of the differences in fluorescence intensity among histopathological types of gastric cancer. Thus, the aim of the present study was to assess whether protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPOX), involved in the activation of protoporphyrin IX, can affect the fluorescence intensity in EGC...

Laparoscopy has gradually expanded its use in gynecologic surgery over the last three decades. In this report, a new laparoscopic setup is presented using a mobile smartphone that allows for a low-cost, portable laparoscopic viewing system. The setup was created with the coupling of a rigid 0 degrees, 10-mm diameter laparoscope via a commercially available adaptor with a smartphone. The light source used was also a portable and rechargeable light-emitting diode (LED) cold light source. We completed 17 diagnostic laparoscopies for different pathologies such as ectopic pregnancy, ovarian torsion, luteal hemorrhagic cyst, and disseminated ovarian cancer...

BACKGROUND: The proportion of elderly patients who undergo surgery has rapidly increased. However, clinical indicators that predict outcomes are limited. Frailty is thought to estimate physiological reserves, although its use has not been evaluated in laparoscopic surgical patients. This study aimed to evaluate the significance of preoperative modified frailty index (PMFI) in octogenarians undergoing a laparoscopic gastrectomy. METHODS: We reviewed prospectively collected data from 119 patients with gastric cancer (GC) aged 80 years or older who underwent a radical laparoscopic gastrectomy (RLG) between January 2007 and December 2012...
