OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare adhesion formation after laparoscopic and open colorectal cancer resection. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: After colorectal surgery, most patients develop adhesions, with a high burden of complications. Laparoscopy seems to reduce adhesion formation, but evidence is poor. Trials comparing open- and laparoscopic colorectal surgery have never assessed adhesion formation. METHODS: Data on adhesions were gathered during resection of colorectal liver metastases...

Robotic-assisted surgery is a technological advancement derived from conventional laparoscopy, which facilitates the application of minimally invasive techniques for complex operations in the field of gynecological oncology. However, its introduction in gynecological cancer has been scarce in most hospitals worldwide. Most publications on robotic surgery are still retrospective or descriptive in nature. Some studies compare robotic-assisted laparoscopy with open procedures, which is a questionable analysis, because the advantages of minimally invasive surgery have been already well established...

BACKGROUND: The benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy occurs with early initiation, but is commonly delayed due to postoperative complications. Minimally invasive surgery is proven to significantly reduce complications and hospital length of stay. This study compares open versus laparoscopic liver resection in patients requiring adjuvant chemotherapy. METHODS: 120 consecutive patients with metastatic colorectal liver cancer who underwent liver resection between 2007 through 2012 were reviewed from an IRB prospective database...

OBJECTIVE: Extended-field chemoradiation is typically used for the management of patients with locally advanced cervical cancer. Given the low rate of skipped metastases above the inferior mesenteric artery, ilioinframesenteric dissection seems to be an acceptable pattern of paraaortic lymph node dissection (LND). Our objective is to compare the surgical morbidity of inframesenteric LND (IM-LND) with infrarenal LND (IR-LND). METHODS: In our center, all of the patients with locally advanced cervical cancer and negative magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography-computed tomography imaging at the paraaortic level were offered laparoscopic staging including a diagnostic laparoscopy followed, if negative, by an extraperitoneal paraaortic lymphadenectomy...

A 67-year old woman underwent laparoscopy-assisted high anterior resection for sigmoid colon cancer. A histopathological examination revealed no lymph node metastasis, but extramural cancer deposits were present. Four years later, enhanced computed tomography revealed recurrence in the retroperitoneum and metastasis to the left kidney. A left nephrectomy and left hemicolectomy were performed. A year after the second operation, computed tomography revealed metastasis to the lung. Histopathological reexamination for extra-lymph nodal spread after the first operation revealed venous involvement...

A 37-year-old woman was diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer. Pancreatic invasion of the tumor and positive cytology from peritoneal washing was found on staging laparoscopy. The patient received chemotherapy consisting of S-1 and CDDP, but the tumor size increased after 5 courses. The patient then received 2 courses of second line chemotherapy consisting of biweekly CPT-11; however, the tumor progressed and caused stenosis of the stomach. After gastrojejunostomy for the stenosis, negative cytology of intraperitoneal lavage was found...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy is one of the major treatments for early stage gastric cancer, particularly in the East Asia. In this method, extracorporeal anastomosis is performed via a small laparotomy wound, but excessive tissue traction may be encountered during the anastomotic procedure. Therefore, we developed an original procedure for extracorporeal Billroth-I reconstruction: end-to-end stapling gastroduodenostomy with complete double stapling technique. This procedure aims to reduce the problems related to maneuvers through a small laparotomy...

Simultaneous laparoscopy-assisted resection for synchronous stomach and colon cancers has been reported frequently; however, robot-assisted gastrectomy and colectomy for these conditions are rarely reported. We report the successful use of robotic surgery for synchronous cancers of the stomach and colon. A 71-year-old woman with no specific medical history was diagnosed with early gastric cancer at the gastric angle and right colon cancer after undergoing esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonofiberoscopy. Abdomino-pelvic computed tomography revealed that the stomach and colon lesions were limited to the mucosa without any lymph nodes or distant metastasis, which suggested the clinical stage for both cancers as T1N0M0...

Combination chemotherapy consisting of systemic and intraperitoneal agents against peritoneal metastases from several types of cancer has shown promising results. We herein report a case in which combination therapy with intravenous and intraperitoneal paclitaxel with S-1 converted an unresectable pancreatic cancer with peritoneal metastases into a resectable one. The patient was a 65-year old woman with recurrent pancreatitis for 5 months. Endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration revealed minute epithelial masses composed of cells with irregular nuclei in the pancreatic body...

BACKGROUND: The prognosis for pancreatic cancer remains dismal because many patients are diagnosed with unresectable cancer at the initial diagnosis. Recently, conversion surgery was reported as an effective treatment for initially unresectable pancreatic cancer with a favorable response to non-surgical treatment lasting over 240 days. Here, we describe a case of locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) successfully resected after treatment with S-1 and radiation followed by gemcitabine/nab-paclitaxel therapy...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Laparoscopic resection is a well-established approach for colorectal cancer surgery. In patients with rectal cancer treated by neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, it may be difficult to identify a clear safety margin for endostapling and subsequent anastomosis. We designed an innovative technical approach to assist colorectal anastomosis in these patients. TECHNIQUE: A four-trocar laparoscopic approach is used. After exploration of the abdominal cavity, the left colic flexure is completely mobilized...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic-assisted radical resection of rectal cancer was reported as advantageous compared to laparotomy resection. However, this finding remains controversial, especially given the two recent randomized controlled trials published on The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). OBJECTIVE: To perform a meta-analysis that compares the short-term and long-term outcomes of laparoscopic and open surgery for rectal cancer. DATA SOURCE: To identify clinical trials comparing laparoscopic and open surgery for rectal cancer published by August 2016, we searched the PubMed, Cochrane Library, Springer Link and Clinicaltrials...

INTRODUCTION: Rectal cancer patients frequently present with locally advanced disease for which the standard of care includes neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy followed by total mesorectal excision. Positive lymph nodes are one of the most powerful risk factors for recurrence and survival in colorectal cancer. In the absence of specific rectal guidelines, the literature recommends to the pathologist to optimize the number of rectal lymph nodes (LN) retrieved. We made a literature review in order to identify factors that could potentially affect the number of LN retrieved in specimens of patients with rectal cancer treated by chemoradiotherapy (CRT) followed by total mesorectal excision (TME)...
