BOSTON (CBS) — According to a new study published in the journal Cancer, even light to moderate alcohol intake has been linked to a higher risk of cancer. Researchers at the University of Tokyo and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health looked at data on over 60,000 cancer patients in Japan. They found drinking as little as one drink a day for 10 years or two drinks a year for five years, was associated would increase overall cancer risk by five percent, such as cancers of the colon, stomach, breast, prostate, and esophagus. Cancer risk was lowest with no alcohol consumption.

Associations between drinking and cancer were particularly strong for cancers of the mouth, throat, stomach and colon.

ConclusionThe utilization of robotic-assisted resections of GI cancers is rapidly increasing with more frequent use in younger and healthier patients. This study demonstrates that with the rising utilization of robotic-assisted resections, perioperative outcomes and oncologic safety have not been compromised.
ConclusionOur simple, novel technique, the “curtain method,” for prevention of laparoscopic FJ-associated bowel obstruction after esophagectomy is a safe additional surgery.
ConclusionsAbout 10% of patients showed histologic discrepancy between biopsy and final resection with ER or gastrectomy. Histologic discrepancy can affect treatment outcomes, such as non-curative resection in ER or missing the opportunity for ER in gastrectomy.
ConclusionsDuring our 15 years of experience, we have successfully performed 1483 cases of AGC with laparoscopy. Our results showed short-term and long-term oncologic outcomes that were comparable with other studies. LG is safe and feasible in general practice for advanced gastric cancer when performed by experienced surg eons.
ConclusionThe use of linear stapled reconstruction is safer than the use of circular stapled reconstruction for intracorporeal EJS in TLTG because of its lower risks of stenosis.
