Rationale: Gastric cancer is still one of the most common cancer in East Asia. More than 70% gastric cancer patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage in China. Moreover, about 10% cases are unresectable which usually suffer a poor prognosis with a median survival time of 5 to 12 months. In recent years, some clinical studies found that many unresectable gastric cancer cases could get opportunity for surgery after treatment that improve prognosis significantly Patient concerns: 64-year-old male patient was admitted with upper abdominal pain. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a large ulcerated tumor located from...

Conclusions: The newly developed radiomic signature was a powerful predictor of LN metastasis and the radiomics nomogram could facilitate the preoperative individualized prediction of LN status. Introduction Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most common malignant tumors and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide (1). Accurate evaluation of lymph node metastasis (LNM) status in GC patients is vital for prognosis and treatment decisions (2–4). Some histopathologic factors and biomarkers (e.g., lymphatic invasion, matrix metalloproteinase-2) are found to be able to predict LNM in GC, but mos...

We report the case of a 76-year-old man who presented with dyspnea, vomiting, and fever around 8 days after total gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction. Abdominal computed tomography revealed a hiatal hernia containing part of the small intestine in the left thoracic cavity. Emergent reduction and repair of the hiatal hernia were performed later. Operative findings revealed that the Roux limb was incarcerated in the left pleural cavity. Esophagojejunostomy leakage, perforation of the small intestine with transient ischemic change, and pyothorax were also found. Thus, feeding jejunostomy, thoracoscopic decortication, an...

This study aimed to analyze the clinical features and risk factors for internal hernia after gastrectomy for gastric cancer.MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed internal hernia after gastrectomy for gastric cancer in 6474 patients between January 2003 and December 2016 at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital. Multivariable logistic regression was performed to evaluate risk factors.ResultsInternal hernias identified by computed tomography or surgical exploration were 111/6474 (1.7%) and the median interval time was 450 days after gastrectomy. Fourteen (0.9%) of the 1510 patients who underwent open gastrectomy and 97 (2....

Conclusions: A median follow-up of 58 months showed that the overall incidence of IH in mini-laparotomy wounds was 2.8%. Multivariate analysis showed that female sex, higher BMI, and presence of comorbidity were significant risk factors of IH. Thus, surgeons should monitor the closure of mini-laparotomy wounds in patients with risk factors of IH undergoing laparoscopic distal gastrectomy. PMID: 30607302 [PubMed]

Authors: Yoshikawa T, Kadokawa Y, Ohana M, Fukuda A, Seno H Abstract Gastric cancers that fulfill the Japanese criteria for curative endoscopic resection show a low risk of lymph node (LN) metastasis. Here, we report a case of LN metastasis from early gastric cancer that fulfilled the curative criteria. A 74-year-old Japanese woman was referred to our hospital for treatment of early gastric cancer identified at the site of a hyperplastic polyp that had been diagnosed 10 years prior to presentation. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography did not show any lymphadenopathy and laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy was...

We report a case of intrahepatic bile duct adenoma (BDA) detected during laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer. A 70-year-old man was referred to our hospital for the treatment of gastric cancer. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed an irregular, nodular, and elevated lesion on the greater curvature side of the middle third of the stomach. Abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed wall thickening with homogeneous enhancement in the middle part of the stomach, and no lesions in the liver. The patient underwent laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with regional lymphadenectomy, and during the operation a ...

Authors: Seo HS, Jung YJ, Park CH, Song KY, Jung ES Abstract Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an immune-mediated fibro-inflammatory disorder characterized by specific pathological findings and elevated serum IgG4 level. IgG4-RD in the stomach is rare, and occasionally diagnosed as gastric subepithelial tumor (SET) by endoscopy or computed tomography scan. Two female patients in the age group of 40-50 years were diagnosed with 4 cm sized gastric SET. One underwent laparoscopic gastric wedge resection. Another one had a history of subtotal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer and idiopathic thrombocytop...

CONCLUSION Jejunogastric intussusceptions after distal gastrectomy is a rare complication; however, when it occurs, early diagnosis and appropriate management are necessary.
