Correction to: Does the preoperative platelet-tolymphocyte ratio and neutrophil-tolymphocyte ratio predict morbidity after gastrectomy for gastric cancer?

In the original publication of this article [1] there are two garbled codes in the second sentence, the fourth paragraph of the Background section. The correct sentence should be: Tumor growth leads to the increased production of inflammatory cytokines and growth factors (mainly IL-1, IL-3, IL-6, IL-11, IL-23, and TNF-), and this perpetual process ensures immortality. These promoting factors are also important for angiogenesis and hematopoiesis, which explains the increase in blood cell types in cancerous diseases. The original publication has been corrected.

The lack of widespread use of endoscopic resection (ER) for treatment of early gastric cancer (EGC) meeting the Japanese Gastric Cancer Association (JGCA) absolute and expanded criteria in the U.S., has resulted in unnecessary surgical gastrectomy. We aim to evaluate the inappropriate rates of surgical resection of EGC meeting JGCA absolute and expanded criteria.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a curative method for some cases of early gastric cancer (EGC). However, there are still some patients who underwent additive gastrectomy after ESD because of lymph node metastasis (LNM) risk. If an accurate predicting for the risk of LNM before ESD is possible, appropriate treatment strategy could be established at the timing of decision for ESD. We aimed to investigate pre-procedural features for predicting the risk of LNM in EGC.

Abstract In recent times, the diagnosis and treatment of superficial laryngopharyngeal cancers has been receiving a lot of attention. Here, we present a case of superficial hypopharyngeal cancer and superficial esophageal cancer for which endoscopic laryngo-pharyngeal surgery (ELPS) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) were performed simultaneously. The patient was a 67-year-old male. During his follow-up for distal gastrectomy performed earlier for stomach cancer, an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed three primary cancers: superficial hypopharyngeal cancer, superficial esophageal cancer, and esophag...

Application of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for treating undifferentiated-type early gastric cancers (EGCs) remains controversial. Therefore, we aimed to compare long-term outcomes of ESD with those of surgery for patients with undifferentiated-type EGCs by a retrospective study. We retrospectively reviewed data of patients who underwent curative ESD or gastrectomy for undifferentiated-type EGCs between 2010 and 2017. Gastric cancers were undifferentiated-type adenocarcinoma without ulceration confined to the mucosal layer and 2 cm or smaller in size. Demographics, complications, recurrence cancer rates, and s...

ConclusionCombined preoperative T-mab-based chemotherapy and surgery appears to be safe and effective for stage IV HER2-positive gastric or gastroesophageal junction cancer, with a clinically meaningful impact on RFS and OS.

Abstract This paper reports a case of a twisted small bowel obstruction in a 74-year-old man that occurred after a double tract reconstruction (DTR) in a laparoscopic proximal gastrectomy (PG) for early gastric cancer. The patient had inadequate oral intake and reflux symptoms for 10 days after discharge. Imaging analysis revealed a narrowed small bowel with twists between the esophagojejunostomy and gastrojejunostomy sites. A fully covered stent was placed in the narrowed small bowel for 2 weeks. The patient was then discharged after stent removal without any dietary problems. The authors' experience shows that t...

AbstractPurposeAging societies comprise an increasing number of elderly gastric cancer (GC) patients. We herein attempted to determine whether D2 lymphadenectomy is beneficial for older GC patients.MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed a multi-institutional dataset including 3484 patients who received surgical resection for GC. For the analysis, we selected patients aged  ≥ 80 years who were clinically diagnosed with T1N + or T2-4 GC. To balance the essential variables including the type of gastrectomy and the stage of progression, propensity score matching was conducted, and we compared th...
