Here we report a case of pancreatic cancer(PC)with peritoneal dissemination, underwent conversion surgery following chemotherapy for 2 years. A5 5-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for treatment of PC. Abdominal CT scan revealed 3.0 cm of a pancreatic head tumor with abutment of the portal vein and the hepatic artery, classified as borderline resectable. Staging laparoscopy(SL)showed positive peritoneal cytology(CY). Gemcitabine(Gem)plus S-1 therapy(GS) was performed. Ten months after initial GS, SL revealed the disseminated nodule and positive CY...

Minimally-invasive techniques were adopted relatively late for pancreatic procedures due to their complexity. Today, minimally-invasive distal pancreatectomy is the procedure of choice for the treatment of benign or premalignant pancreatic lesions due to the advantages inherent to laparoscopy. Data on the efficacy of minimally-invasive distal pancreatectomy in oncologic surgery is still limited and larger prospective series are needed prior to its widespread use for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. This review addresses various aspects of distal pancreatectomy, with emphasis on recent developments and open controversies...

Robot-assisted surgery has been developed to overcome limitations of conventional laparoscopy aiming to further optimize minimally invasive surgery. Despite the fact that robotics already have been widely adopted in urology, gynecology, and several gastro-intestinal procedures, like colorectal surgery, pancreatic surgery lags behind. Due to the complex nature of the procedure, surgeons probably have been hesitant to apply minimally invasive techniques in pancreatic surgery. Nevertheless, the past few years pancreatic surgery has been catching up...

BACKGROUND: Safety and efficacy of laparoscopy surgery in locally Advanced Gastric Cancers (AGC) have not been proven by randomized control trials. Therefore, standard of care for AGC is still open surgery. Here, we are presenting a 64-year-old female with proximal gastric adenocarcinoma (close to cardio-oesophageal junction) adherent to tail of pancreas, who underwent D2 total gastrectomy en-mass distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. METHODS: Five ports are entered into the peritoneal cavity (Three 10-12 mm and two 5 mm ports)...

Laparoscopic radical gastrectomy(LRG) has been popularized with the development of laparoscopic surgical techniques. As a result of the requirement of surgical skill of LRG, the evidence is always highly demanded. The surgical safety and radical resection of tumor is one of the most important principles. Based on published studies and authors' own experience, this article discusses the following topics on laparoscopic gastrectomy: (1)Indications of surgery: Laparoscopic gastrectomy for early gastric cancer is accepted all over the world...

BACKGROUND: With the introduction of complete mesocolic excision (CME) and the application of laparoscopic technique, surgery for colon cancer has become more standardized and the curative effect has improved [1]. The key points in laparoscopic right hemicolectomy are high ligation of main vessels and root dissection of lymph nodes. The wide range of variations in vascular architecture and intraoperative bleeding are common causes of prolonged surgical time, wound hemorrhage, and even transfer to the opening operation...

INTRODUCTION: In a distal pancreatectomy combined with a distal gastrectomy, the splenic artery and vein must be conserved. However, it is not easy in pure laparoscopic surgery. We performed a hand-assisted laparoscopic spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy (HALS-SPDP) combined with a laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) for the treatment of a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (NET) with early gastric cancer. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 67-year-old male was hospitalized with no complaint...

Laparoscopic pancreatic surgery is one of the most sophisticated and advanced applications of laparoscopy in the current surgical practice. The adoption of laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) has been relatively slow due to the technical challenges. The aim of this study is to review and characterize our successful LPD experiences in patients with distal bile duct carcinoma, periampullary adenocarcinoma, pancreas head cancer, and duodenal cancer and evaluate the clinical outcomes of LPD for its potential in oncologic surgery applications...

BACKGROUND: D2 lymphadenectomy has been widely accepted as a standard procedure of surgical treatment for local advanced gastric cancer [1, 2]. However, neither the dissection boundary nor the extent of the excision for perigastric soft tissues has been described [3-7]. Our previous researches demonstrate the existence of disseminated cancer cells in the mesogastrium [8, 9] and present an understandable mesogastrium model for gastrectomy [10]. Hence, the D2 lymphadenectomy plus complete mesogastrium excision (D2 + CME) is firstly proposed in this study, aiming to assess the safety, feasibility and corresponding short-term surgical outcomes...

The goal of the present study was to determine whether insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) antibodies, conjugated with bright fluorophores, could enable visualization of pancreatic cancer in orthotopic nude mouse models. IGF-1R antibody (clone 24-31) was conjugated with 550 nm or 650 nm fluorophores. Western blotting confirmed the expression of IGF-1R in Panc-1, BxPC3, and MIAPaCa-2 human pancreatic cancer cell lines. Labeling with fluorophore-conjugated IGF-1R antibody demonstrated fluorescent foci on the membrane of the pancreatic cancer cells...

Generally, the gold standard of radical surgery for gastrointestinal (GI) tumors is en bloc resection of primary lesions and their related tissues. For gastric cancer, the ideal surgical treatment should be D2 radical gastrectomy plus complete mesogastrium excision. Complete mesogastrium excision is rarely done or mentioned since little is known about the mesogastrium and its presence is still with controversy. Topographically, the "mesogastrium" refers to a peri-gastric structure composed of "fascia propria", enveloping lymph nodes, blood vessels and adipose tissues, which by connecting to the stomach, suspends from the posterior abdominal wall...

BACKGROUND: Advanced laparoscopy for pancreatic cancer surgery should include laparoscopic ultrasound (LUS), in order to accurately evaluate resectability and rule out the presence of undetected metastases and/or vascular infiltration. LUS should be done as a preliminary step whenever pre-operative imaging casts doubts on resectability. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We hereby report our experience of 18 consecutive patients, aged 43-76, coming to our attention during a six months period (Jan-Jun 2013), with a diagnosis of pancreas head or body cancer...

We developed a novel approach to perform a perfect 11p lymph node dissection (LND), the so-called 'midpancreas mobilization' (MPM) method. Briefly, in pure single-incision laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (SIDG), after the completion of 7, 8a/12a, and 9 LND in the suprapancreatic portion, we started 11p LND after midpancreas mobilization. After mobilization of the entire midpancreas from the white line of Toldt, two gauzes were inserted behind the pancreas. This maneuver facilitated exposure of the splenic vein and complete detachment of soft tissue, including 11p lymph nodes, from the white line of Toldt, which was possible because of the tilting of the pancreas...

BACKGROUND: A detailed and correct pretherapeutic evaluation of stage and resectability is mandatory for an optimal treatment strategy and results in patients with cancer of the esophagus, stomach or pancreas (UGIC). Curative surgery should only be attempted in patients with limited extent of their disease, patients with locally advanced disease should be allocated for neo-adjuvant therapy, while the remaining patients should be referred for palliative measures following a quick, lenient and correct pretherapeutic evaluation...
