Pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma is rare. There is no consensus on a treatment strategy for metastatic lesions to the liver. We report of a 68-year-old man who received total pancreatectomy for pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma. One year after surgery, abdominal enhanced CT showed a small liver tumor in segment 8. We diagnosed this tumor as hepatic metastasis of pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma, and we resected it via partial liver resection. Pathological studies indicated a metastasis from pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma...

Patients with borderline resectable pancreatic cancer have a poorer prognosis than patients with resectable pancreatic cancer, but some cases treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy and radical surgery (R0 surgery) show long-term survival. A 72-year-old woman presented with a history of back pain and weight loss. Computed tomography revealed a cancer of the pancreatic body encasing the celiac trunk, common hepatic artery, and portal vein. After neoadjuvant chemotherapy ( S-1) and carbon-ion radiotherapy, the tumor was considered to be resectable...

The quality of life of patients with recurrence of biliary cancer is remarkably diminished by the occurrence of refractory ascites caused by peritoneal dissemination or portal vein obstruction. In this study, we examined the effectiveness of peritoneovenous shunting (PVS) in patients with refractory ascites after recurrence of biliary cancer. PVS was performed 7 times in 5 patients, with 6 shunts (85.7%) placed from the left-side abdomen to the left subclavian vein. During the median observation period of 136 days, the ascites and symptoms of abdominal distension disappeared in 4 patients...

The anti-inflammatory activity of auraptene (AUR), a citrus coumarin, in peripheral tissues is well-known, and we previously demonstrated that AUR exerts anti-inflammatory effects in the ischemic brain; the treatment of mice with AUR for eight days immediately after ischemic surgery suppressed demise and neuronal cell death in the hippocampus, possibly through its anti-inflammatory effects in the brain. We suggested that these effects were at least partly mediated by the suppression of inflammatory mediators derived from astrocytes...

Sclerosing stromal tumor (SST) is an extremely rare benign tumor of the ovary that is derived from the sex cord stroma [1,2] and occurs in young women [3-11]. Preoperative diagnosis of the tumor is difficult as it often mimics a malignant tumor. Oophorectomy is usually performed in many cases of young women [3], and diagnosis of SST is made based on post-operative pathological examination. Laparoscopic surgery is seldom performed in SST cases. Here, we report a case of SST of the ovary in an 18-year-old girl who was diagnosed by preoperative imaging and underwent laparoscopic cystectomy...

This case report describes an 83-year-old man with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma who was referred by a local hospital. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed a large tumor in hepatic segments 4, 5, and 8 involving the right hepatic vein and inferior vena cava, which is normally indicative of an unresectable locally advanced tumor. After systemic chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin, the observed decrease in the level of tumor marker suggested that the cancer was responding to treatment, while radiological findings showed the main tumor shrunk without the presence of distant metastases...

BACKGROUND: To characterize clinical advantages in robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) for targeting renal hilar tumors, and compare them with those of open PN (OPN). METHODS: This study included 31 consecutive patients with renal hilar tumors, consisting of 15 and 16 who received OPN and RAPN, respectively, between January 2012 and May 2014. The perioperative and oncological outcomes of the two approaches were compared. In this series, a hilar tumor was defined as a renal cortical tumor located in the renal hilum that was shown, by preoperative imaging, to be in direct physical contact with the renal artery and/or vein...

BACKGROUND: Noncardiac surgery after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been reported to be carrying high risk for both ischemic and bleeding complications. However, there has been no report comparing the incidence and outcomes of surgical procedures after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with those after PCI. METHODS AND RESULTS: Among 14 383 patients undergoing first coronary revascularization (PCI, n=12 207; CABG, n=2176) enrolled in the Coronary Revascularization Demonstrating Outcome Study in Kyoto (CREDO-Kyoto) PCI/CABG Registry Cohort-2, surgical procedures were performed more frequently after CABG (n=560) than after PCI (n=2398; cumulative 3-year incidence: 27% versus 22%; unadjusted P<0...

BACKGROUND: Although the outcomes of pancreatic cancer have been improved by gemcitabine, the changes in its characteristics and long-term outcomes within the gemcitabine era remain unclear. This study was conducted to identify clinical characteristics of pancreatic cancer patients within the gemcitabine era. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed at 10 centers for 1,248 consecutive patients who were ever considered to have a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer between 2001 and 2010...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced secretion of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) has been suggested as a possible mechanism underlying the improvement in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). However, the reason for enhanced GLP-1 secretion during glucose challenge after LSG remains unclear because LSG does not include intestinal bypass. In this study, we focused on the effects of LSG on GLP-1 secretion and intestinal motility during the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) using cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before and 3 months after LSG...

Several previous publications have consistently reported that surgical procedures performed early after coronary stenting were associated with significantly higher risk for ischemic events than those performed late. In the current post hoc analysis of the Coronary REvascularization Demonstrating Outcome Study in Kyoto PCI/coronary artery bypass grafting Registry Cohort-2, we compared the outcomes of early (within 42 days) versus late surgery (beyond 42 days) after coronary stenting stratified by the initial clinical presentations [acute myocardial infarction (AMI) [early N = 153, and late N = 586] and non-AMI (early N = 202, and late N = 1457)]...

Paraovarian tumor of borderline malignancy is rare. Only 13 cases in Japan, including the present cases, and 40 cases overseas have been reported. We report two cases of paraovarian tumor of borderline malignancy. Case 1: A 38-year-old woman was found to have a right ovarian cyst. Transvaginal ultrasonography showed a unilocular cystic tumor and a solid part of 8 mm in diameter within the tumor. Malignancy could not be ruled out, therefore the laparotomy was performed. The tumor was paraovarian tumor. Intraoperative rapid histological diagnosis was made and the patient was diagnosed with a serous borderline tumor...

OBJECTIVE: Many patients with aortic stenosis (AS) have coexisting aortic regurgitation (AR). However, few data exist regarding its clinical significance and prognostic value. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of concomitant significant AR on clinical outcomes in patients with non-surgically treated severe AS. DESIGN: A single centre, retrospective cohort study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 306 consecutive patients (age, 72±11 years) with severe AS in whom non-surgical management was primarily planned at our institution between January 1999 and December 2011...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC), also known as transient left ventricular (LV) apical ballooning syndrome, is characterized by transient LV dysfunction. We present the case of a 72-year-old man who was diagnosed as having TTC after surgery for two lung tumors. The patient was treated with induction chemoradiotherapy (CRT) followed by pulmonary resections for double primary non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC): cT4N1M0 disease in the right lung and cT2N0M0 in the left lung. Induction CRT was performed. A right upper lobectomy was initially performed, and a left upper divisionectomy was subsequently performed...
