BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy has been proposed for the management of recurrent hepatolithiasis, but no comparative study of its relative efficacy versus laparotomy has been performed, and the patient selection criteria for laparoscopy are not clear. This study aimed to investigate the therapeutic effect of laparoscopy versus laparotomy for repeated hepatolithiasis and to highlight how to select patients best suited for laparoscopy. METHODS: We performed a cohort study of 94 patients who underwent laparotomy or laparoscopy for recurrent hepatolithiasis between January 2010 and May 2014...

A 73-year-old man with lower abdominal pain was diagnosed at our hospital with sigmoid colon cancer. He had previously undergone radical cystectomy with Indiana pouch construction and gastrectomy to treat bladder cancer and gastric cancer, respectively. We performed a laparoscopic Hartmann's operation with Japanese D3 lymph node dissection. We observed severe adhesion in the abdominal cavity; adhesions between the urostomy and sigmoid colon were particularly severe. The tumor had invaded to the distal rectum, which had adhered to the pubic bone and the previously reconstructed urinary pouch...

The most dreaded complication of colorectal surgery is anastomotic leakage. Adipose tissue-derived stem cell sheets (ASC sheets) prepared from temperature-responsive culture surfaces can be easily transplanted onto tissues. These sheets are proposed to improve cell transplant efficiency and enhance wound healing. The aim of this study was to investigate whether application of ASC sheets could prevent leakage of sutured colorectal anastomoses. Insufficient suturing of colorectal anastomoses was performed in Wistar rats to create a colorectal anastomotic leakage model...

OBJECTIVES: Pleural invasion has been recognized as an important negative prognostic factor in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and therefore, accurate evaluation is required. However, when the visceral pleura adheres to the parietal pleura around a tumor and parietal pleural structures are destroyed and unrecognizable as a result of inflammation, it is often difficult to accurately evaluate pleural invasion, and classification of the T stage is unclear. To aid in categorization, we defined this status as pl1-3 and investigated the prognostic impact of the pl1-3 status on NSCLC...

BACKGROUND: A defect after partial mastectomy, sometimes, is hard to be filled with patient's own breast tissue. Two different types of oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC) for filling of partial defects in small-sized breasts were compared with respect to clinicopathologic factors and outcomes. METHODS: A total of 45 patients with breast cancer underwent conventional partial mastectomy with insertion of an ORC filling material. The two filling materials used were a hemostasis-purposed ORC and adhesion barrier-purposed ORC...

Despite decades of research, wound complications remain a major cause of postoperative mortality, especially in the face of multiple comorbidities. Addressing the issue of anastomotic leakages and impaired wound healing from a new angle is of great interest with the prospect of having direct impact on patient outcome. Recently, aqueous suspensions of silica and iron oxide nanoparticles have been employed to connect biological tissue by serving as an adhesive layer eventually leading to macroscopic gluing of tissue...

A 54-year-old woman diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) at the age of 19 years was scheduled to undergo temporomandibular joint mobilization. She was currently in a remission phase from her MS but with persistent sequelae, including impaired eyesight and muscle weakness of the limbs. In addition, the blood vessels in her upper limbs were compromised by the formation of internal shunts secondary to vascular prosthesis replacements for plasma exchange therapy in MS. After a previous joint mobilization surgery, her temporomandibular joint developed adhesions with resultant trismus...

Wound closure in primary knee arthroplasty is important both for surgical success, by minimizing the risk of wound complications and infection, and for patient satisfaction with wound care and cosmesis. This article reports the use of a topical self-adhering, pressure-sensitive polyester mesh combined with 2-octyl cyanoacrylate adhesive for final skin closure of primary knee arthroplasty without external staples or sutures. During a 2.5-year period, 360 consecutive primary knee arthroplasty procedures (321 total knee arthroplasty procedures and 39 partial knee arthroplasty procedures) performed by 1 surgeon at 1 institution were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Enterolithiasis of the small bowel is a rare phenomenon in humans although it has been frequently described in equines. Primary enteroliths have been described including those occurring secondary to conditions like Crohn's disease, small bowel diverticula, tuberculous or postoperative strictures, and blind loops but those occurring in an otherwise normal gut are exceedingly rare. Of even greater rarity is a recurrent small bowel enterolith presenting with obstruction. This may be the first report of such kind...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The negative impact of postoperative adhesions has long been recognized, but available options for prevention remain limited. Minimally invasive surgery is associated with decreased adhesion formation due to meticulous dissection with gentile tissue handling, improved hemostasis, and limiting exposure to reactive foreign material; however, there is conflicting evidence on the clinical significance of adhesion-related disease when compared to open surgery. Laparoscopic surgery does not guarantee the prevention of adhesions because longer operative times and high insufflation pressure can promote adhesion formation...
