Authors: Huh YJ, Lee JH Abstract Laparoscopic gastrectomy is evolving. With the increasing expertise and experience of oncologic surgeons in the minimally invasive surgery for gastric cancer, the indication for laparoscopic gastrectomy is expanding to advanced cases. Many studies have demonstrated the benefits of minimally invasive surgery, including reduced risk of surgery-related injury, reduced blood loss, less pain, and earlier recovery. In order to establish concrete evidence for the suitability of minimal invasive surgery for gastric cancer, many multicenter RCTs, comparing the short- and long-term outcomes o...

Conclusions: Dexmedetomidine in combination with fentanyl-based IV-PCA significantly improved postoperative analgesia in patients undergoing open gastrectomy without hemodynamic instability, which was comparable to thoracic E-PCA. Furthermore, this approach could be clinically more meaningful owing to its noninvasive nature. PMID: 28924366 [PubMed - in process]

This study evaluated whether smokers require higher doses of opioid to reduce pain when they undergo surgery. Methods: A retrospective review of 236 patients who had intravenous patient-controlled analgesia after distal gastrectomy with gastroduodenostomy between October 2013 and September 2014 was performed to analyze the difference in postoperative opioid requirements between smokers and nonsmokers. Total opioid consumption was observed from the day of operation to postoperative day 2. Patients were grouped into smokers (N=117) and nonsmokers (N=119) for comparison. Simple and multiple regression analyses were performed...

Question: A 67-year-old man with a past medical history of well-controlled diabetes mellitus type 2, a recent episode of acute kidney injury owing to bilateral distal ureteral strictures of unknown etiology treated with bilateral ureteral stenting and percutaneous nephrostomy tube placement, and a remote history of adenocarcinoma of the gastric cardia, presented with a 27-pound weight loss, worsening lower abdominal pain, and change in stool for 2 weeks. Two years before the current presentation, he had been diagnosed with invasive adenocarcinoma (Figure A) of the gastric cardia (Seifert type 3) arising in a background of ...

We present the case of a 60-year-old man with SIT, who was diagnosed with moderately and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma at the gastroesophageal junction. We further describe the advantage of using robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery in patients with this anomaly. Patient concerns: A 60-year-old man complained of pain in his upper abdomen for 3 months. Physical examination revealed an apex beat in the right fifth intercostal space, and vascular anomalies were noted on abdominal angiographic computed tomography. Diagnoses: Moderately and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma at the gastroesophageal junction with SIT...

Conclusion: Percutaneous transhepatic papilla balloon dilatation, combined with a percutaneous transcystic approach, provided an effective alternative treatment for removing concurrent stones in the common bile duct and gallbladder in a patient with a previous Billroth II gastrectomy and presenting with an acute cholecystitis.

Conclusions: Dexmedetomidine as an adjuvant to ropivacaine for wound infiltration promoted the analgesic efficacy of ropivacaine, reduced sufentanil consumption, and had no effect on wound healing; it could be as an ideal adjuvant which could potentiate the analgesic efficacy of local anesthetics.
