Laparoscopic pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPPPD) is less invasive than open pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy. However, LPPPD has a long operation time with pneumoperitoneum, which may affect the postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs). We retrospectively evaluated the incidence of PPCs and their risk factors in LPPPD. In 191 patients who underwent LPPPD, the incidence of PPCs was 28.8% (n=55). Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that the risk factors for PPCs were male sex [odds ratio (OR), 2...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the use of laparoscopic surgeries (LS) and the association between its performance and hospitals' preference for LS over open surgeries. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: LS is increasingly used in many abdominal surgeries, albeit both with and without solid guideline recommendations. To date, the hospitals' preference (LS vs. open surgeries) and its association with in-hospital outcomes has not been evaluated. METHODS: We enrolled patients undergoing 8 types of gastrointestinal surgeries in 2011-2013 in the Japanese National Clinical Database...

BACKGROUND: A considerable number of patients undergoing incisional hernia repair are on anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy or have existing coagulopathy which may put them at higher risk for postoperative bleeding complications. Data about the optimal treatment of these patients are sparse. This analysis attempts to determine the rate of postoperative bleeding complications following incisional hernia repair and the consecutive rate of reoperation among patients with coagulopathy or receiving antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy (higher risk group) compared to patients who do not have a higher risk (normal risk group)...

INTRODUCTION: Left lateral sectionectomy for donor hepatectomy is a well-established alternative to deceased donor pediatric liver transplantation. However, very little is available on the laparoscopic approach (L-LLS). With the aim to assess safety, reproducibility under proctorship and outcomes following LDLT in children, a comparative single center series using the propensity score matching (PSM) to evaluate open (O-LLS) vs. L-LLS was carried out in a relatively short time period in a high volume pediatric transplant center...

BACKGROUND: Although the artery-first approach is widely used in open pancreaticoduodenectomy, it is difficult to laparoscopically expose the origin of the inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery (IPDA) from the left side of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). By contrast, damaging the inferior pancreaticoduodenal veins (IPDVs) is possible when approaching the IPDA from the right side of the SMA. To facilitate the artery-first approach in laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD), we focused on the proximal-dorsal jejunal vein (PDJV) that branched from the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) dorsal side and drained the IPDVs...
