We treated a 64-year-old man for rectal cancer with direct invasion to the seminal vesicles and no distant metastases by complete resection with laparoscopy and transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS). We inserted the TAMIS device into the anal canal to above the anorectal ring and dissected to prostate level. High ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery and vein was performed by standard medial laparoscopy. The sigmoid and descending colon were mobilized, and in the postrectal space, we dissected to the space made by TAMIS...

INTRODUCTION: In Japan, hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype (GT) 2 accounts for approximately 32% of HCV infections. Limited treatment options exist in Japan for HCV GT2-infected patients. GIFT-II was a phase 3, randomized, open-label study evaluating the efficacy and safety of 16- and 12-week regimens of co-formulated ombitasvir (OBV)/paritaprevir (PTV)/ritonavir (r) plus ribavirin (RBV) in Japanese adults with HCV GT2 infection. METHODS: Patients were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to once-daily, co-formulated OBV/PTV/r (25/150/100 mg) with weight-based RBV for 16 or 12 weeks...

The let-7/lin28 axis is associated with the regulation of key cellular regulatory genes known as microRNAs (miRNAs) in different human disorders and cancer development. This study evaluated the role of the let-7/lin28 axis in regulating a mesenchymal phenotype of hepatic stellate cells in alcoholic liver injury. We identified that ethanol feeding significantly downregulated several members of the let-7 family in mouse liver, including let-7a and let-7b. Similarly, the treatment of human hepatic stellate cells (hHSCs) with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and TGF-β significantly decreased the expressions of let-7a and let-7b...

Despite the fact that human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and HPV-related cancers are on the rise in men, male HPV vaccine series completion is less than 10% in many areas. This study examined parental knowledge of the HPV vaccine and intent to vaccinate their sons. A cross-sectional study of 341 parents of boys was conducted in school settings in rural southeastern Georgia. Mothers were 2.07 times more likely than fathers to vaccinate their sons. Future research directions should include strategies to increase HPV vaccination in both genders and focus on parents' perceived severity and vulnerability of their sons to HPV infection...

Klotho was first discovered as an aging-suppressor gene. Mice that do not express klotho die prematurely with multiple symptoms of aging, several of which are also characteristic of decreased GH/IGF-1 axis activity. Klotho is highly expressed in the brain, the kidney, and parathyroid and pituitary glands, but can also serve as a circulating hormone by its shedding, forming soluble klotho (sKlotho) that can be detected in blood, cerebrospinal fluid and urine. Several lines of evidence suggest an association between klotho levels and activity of the GH/IHG-1 axis: The GH-secreting cells in the anterior pituitary of klotho-deficient mice are hypotrophic; klotho levels are altered in subjects with pathologies of the GH/IGF-1 axis; and accumulating data indicate that klotho is a direct regulator of GH secretion...

Background and Aims: Patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who are dialysis-dependent form a unique group, in which safety, tolerability and efficacy of sofosbuvir (SOF)-based direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) need further evaluation. Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of 14 patients with CHC and ESRD on dialysis who received 15 courses of SOF-based therapy. We evaluated dose escalation to standard-dose SOF in this proof-of-principle experience. Results: Sustained virological response (defined as undetectable viral load at 12 weeks, SVR-12) was achieved in 13 out of the 15 (86...

PURPOSE: Although the standard treatment for patients with locally advanced rectal cancer managed by preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) is a radical resection, local excisions are used in highly-selective cases. Recently, transanal minimally-invasive surgery (TAMIS) has emerged as a feasible technique for local excision of midrectal lesions. We assess the feasibility of using TAMIS to treat patients with locally advanced rectal cancer who showed good response to CRT. METHODS: From October 2010 to June 2013, 35 consecutive patients with rectal cancer managed by using preoperative CRT underwent TAMIS...

BACKGROUND: Early rectal tumor is usually managed by local excision. A novel method-colonoscopy-assisted transanal minimally invasive surgery via glove port (CA-TAMIS-GP)-for resecting early rectal tumor was developed and compared with endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed CA-TAMIS-GP surgery on 26 patients from January 2014 to February 2016. For better analysis, we retrospectively collected data from 31 patients who underwent ESD between October 2012 and December 2013; overall, 57 patients diagnosed with early rectal tumor were included in this study...

REVIEW
Daniel Owen Young, Anjali S Kumar
Local excision (LE) of early-stage rectal cancer avoids the morbidity associated with radical surgery but has historically been associated with inferior oncologic outcomes. Newer techniques, including transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) and transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS), have been developed to improve the quality of LE and extend the benefits of LE to tumors in the more proximal rectum. This article provides an overview of conventional LE, TEM, and TAMIS techniques, including indications for their use and pertinent literature on their associated outcomes for rectal cancer...

Among patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), the risk of stroke risk is a significant concern. CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc ≤2 scoring have been used to stratify patients into categories of risk. Without randomized, prospective data, the need and type of long-term antithrombotic medications for thromboembolism prevention in lower risk AF patients remains controversial. We sought to define the long-term impact of anticoagulant and antiplatelet therapy use in AF patients at low risk of stroke. A total of 56,764 patients diagnosed with AF and a CHADS2 score of 0 or 1, or CHA2DS2-VASc score of 0, 1, or 2 were studied...

Patients with relapsed or refractory (R/R) non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) have a poor prognosis and limited treatment options. We evaluated selinexor, an orally bioavailable, first-in-class inhibitor of the nuclear export protein XPO1, in this phase 1 trial to assess safety and determine a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D). Seventy-nine patients with various NHL histologies, including diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), Richter's transformation, mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), follicular lymphoma (FL) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) were enrolled...

TAMIS or transanal minimally invasive surgery for rectal cancer is becoming more popular. Besides its use in sentinel node mapping, indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence has remained of interest to evaluate the adequacy of perfusion of the anastomosis. This video presents the use of peritumoral ICG injection during transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME) to demonstrate another advantage - that of enhancing visualisation of the plane of dissection and the relationship to the surrounding structures.
