OBJECTIVE The endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) and the transcranial approach (TCA) are good options for the treatment of tuberculum sellae (TS) meningiomas. The objective of this study was to identify the key anatomical features in TS meningiomas and compare the two surgical approaches. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed clinical data in 178 patients with TS meningiomas treated at 3 institutions between January 2010 and July 2016. Patients with tumors encasing the internal carotid artery or anterior cerebral artery or involving the anterior clinoid process or cavernous sinus were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic evacuation of hematoma (EEH) has recently been applied to treat patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH). Intraoperative active bleeding (IAB), which is occasionally observed in EEH, might lead to greater blood loss, further brain damage, and more postoperative recurrent hemorrhage. However, no definite predictor of IAB has been established. Because the spot sign is associated with other hemorrhagic complications, we aimed to evaluate whether it predicts IAB...

PURPOSE: We used propensity score matching to compare the complication rates after laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) with esophagojejunostomy (EJS) performed using a circular or a linear stapler. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled all patients who underwent curative LTG between November 2004 and March 2016. Patients were categorized into the circular and linear groups according to the stapler type used for the subsequent EJS. Patients in the groups were matched using the following propensity score covariates: age, sex, body mass index, American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status, extent of lymph node dissection, and Japanese Classification of Gastric Carcinoma stage...

Background/Aims: Resection of the diseased segment and suture of the victim segment is recommended for enteroenteric fistula in Crohn's disease (CD). The main difficulty in this procedure remains reliable diagnosis of the victim segment, especially for fistulas found intraoperatively and inaccessible on endoscopic examination. We aimed to explore whether intraoperative inspection alone is reliable. Methods: Patients undergoing conservative surgery between 2011 and 2016 for enteroenteric fistulas complicating CD were identified from a prospectively maintained database...

As per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is not followed by any anti-reflux procedure, a common concern is the risk of postoperative gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Electrical stimulation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES-EST) could be an option for post-POEM GERD. A 68-year old male obese patient underwent successful POEM but developed GERD not responsive to proton pump inhibitors. Consecutively, the patient had implanted an electrical LES stimulation device, consisting of bipolar LES-electrodes connected to a subcutaneous pulse generator...

Background  We determined time frames for dilatation of anastomotic strictures (ASs) occurring during the first 2 years after esophageal atresia (EA) repair. Methods  A retrospective study was conducted on children with EA (Gross type C) who underwent direct repair between January 2008 and March 2015 at a single tertiary center of pediatric surgery. Endoscopic signs of stricture were indications for dilatation because the endoscopy provides more reliable information than X-ray imagining methods. Results  Among our cohort of 49 children with EA, 19 (39%) required at least one esophageal dilatation...

OBJECTIVE: Besides mechanical and anatomical changes of the left atrium, epicardial closure of the left atrial appendage has also possible homeostatic effects. The aim of this study was to assess whether epicardial clipping of the left atrial appendage has different biochemical effects compared with complete removal of the left atrial appendage. METHODS: Eighty-two patients were included and underwent a totally thoracoscopic AF ablation procedure. As part of the procedure, the left atrial appendage was excluded with an epicardial clip (n = 57) or the left atrial appendage was fully amputated with an endoscopic vascular stapler (n = 25)...
