An aortoesophageal fistula (AEF) is a rare, potentially fatal condition, and esophagectomy is usually performed simultaneously with aortic surgery. However, esophageal reconstruction method has not been established. This case report describes a two-stage operation for AEF after replacement of thoracic aorta for Stanford Type B dissecting aortic aneurysm. A 61-year-old man who had underwent total arch replacement with frozen elephant trunk for Stanford Type B dissecting aortic aneurysm 3 years ag...

PURPOSE Recently, several studies have suggested that near-infrared (NIR) imaging using indocyanine green (ICG) may contribute to the reduction of anastomotic leakage (AL) after colorectal cancer (CRC) surgery. However, few reports have focused on the usefulness of NIR imaging for AL after stapled functional end-to-end anastomosis (stapled FEEA). The purpose of this study was to clarify the frequency of fluorescence abnormalities on NIR imaging, in cases reconstructed with stapled FEEA. METHODS ...

BACKGROUND The prevalent location and incidence of intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) and invasive carcinoma associated with them have varied markedly among studies due to differences in diagnostic criteria and tumor location. METHODS IPNBs were classified into two types: Type 1 IPNB, being histologically similar to intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm of the pancreas, and Type 2 IPNB, having a more complex histological architecture with irregular papillary branching or fo...

INTRODUCTION Patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) generally have a poor prognosis, yet there can be heterogeneity in the patterns of presentation and associated outcomes. We sought to identify clusters of ICC patients based on preoperative characteristics that may have distinct outcomes based on differing patterns of presentation. METHODS Patients undergoing curative-intent resection of ICC between 2000 and 2017 were identified using a multi-institutional database. A cluster analy...

PURPOSE Considering the initial treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the best prognostic index for Child-Pugh classes B and C (CP-BC) patients has not been yet established. This study aimed to elucidate the risk factors for disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) in multicenter patients with a poor liver functional reserve after curative treatment. METHODS Between April 2000 and April 2014, 212 CP-BC patients who received treatment in five high-volume centers in Japan were ...

BACKGROUND In gallbladder cancer, stage T2 is subdivided by tumour location into lesions on the peritoneal side (T2a) or hepatic side (T2b). For tumours on the peritoneal side (T2a), it has been suggested that liver resection may be omitted without compromising the prognosis. However, data to validate this argument are lacking. This study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of tumour location in T2 gallbladder cancer, and to clarify the adequate extent of surgical resection. METHODS Clinic...

Although endoscopic interventions for chronic pancreatitis are highly developed, surgery for severe complicated cases such as the coexistence of bile duct, duodenum, and portal vein stenosis is a challenging issue for surgeons. In such instances, pancreaticoduodenectomy could lead to massive intraoperative bleeding due to severe collateral veins. A surgical drainage procedure, instead of pancreatic resection, may be a reasonable and safer option in such cases, but the literature on a surgical dr...
