Depressed colorectal neoplasm exhibits high malignant potential and shows rapid invasiveness. We investigated the genomic profile of depressed neoplasms and clarified the survival outcome and treatment response of the cancers arising from them. We examined 20 depressed and 13 polypoid neoplasms by genome-wide copy number analysis. Subsequently, we validated the identified copy number alterations (CNAs) in an independent cohort of 37 depressed and 42 polypoid neoplasms. Finally, the CNAs were tes...

Lateral pelvic lymph node dissection for treatment of advanced low rectal cancer has been predominantly performed in Japan, because of technical difficulties and higher incidence of surgical morbidities. In our institution, for patients with advanced low rectal cancer and synchronous clinically positive pelvic lateral nodes, treatment has included preoperative concurrent chemoradiation therapy (CCRT) followed by total mesorectal excision (TME). However, for patients with persistent enlargement o...

Summary Background Despite emerging evidences on the feasibility and efficacy of single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy (SILA) for managing simple appendicitis, advancing its use for treating complicated appendicitis remains unwarranted. This study aimed to evaluate the surgical outcome of SILA compared with that of standard multiport laparoscopic appendectomy (MPLA) in the management of complicated appendicitis. Methods Between July 2013 and September 2017, 40 patients who underwent SILA and...

Abstract Objective To evaluate the effects of the modified Hospital Elder Life Program (mHELP) comprising 3 nurse-administered protocols in older patients undergoing gastrointestinal (GI) surgery. Design Cluster randomized trial. Setting Two 36-bed GI wards at a university-affiliated medical center in Taiwan. Participants Older patients (≥65 years, N = 377) were recruited if they were scheduled for elective GI surgery with an expected length of hospital stay >6 days. After transferring to the GI...

Summary Background Robotic hepatectomy has been accepted as an alternative for patients needing surgery. However, few reports addressed the patient-reported outcomes and long-term quality of life (QoL) of patients having undergone robotic liver surgery. Methods This study presented the QoL and cost-effectiveness associated with robotic and open hepatectomy by performing a comparative survey using two standardized questionnaires (Short Form-36 and Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index). Results ...

BACKGROUND: Evidence has suggested that robotic system helps perform more major liver resections. However, the required table-side surgeon has remained a concern because of the uncertain performance and the incomplete control of console surgeon. METHODS: Data were reviewed for consecutive 333 robotic liver resections, of which 56 patients underwent left liver resection with the usual setting, and 35 with no table-side surgeon. RESULTS: No conversion was required in the setting with no table-side...

Despite the popularity of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for hepatectomy, limitations in the approach of the right posterior section of the liver remain. Although skills and approach techniques have been developed for hepatectomy of lesions in the posterior segments of the liver, most are performed laparoscopically and are limited to few experienced hands using rigid laparoscopic instruments. In this study, we tried a different approach area via the aid of a flexible robotic system. Since 2012...
