Well differentiated carcinoma with a poor prognosis: a retrospective analysis of papillary gastric adenocarcinoma
ConclusionPapillary gastric adenocarcinoma (PGC) showed different clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis to other types of gastric cancer (GC), even if it was not the primary pathological type. The higher the proportion of papillary adenocarcinoma in gastric cancer samples, the shorter the postoperative survival time of patients. PGC needs further multicenter studies.

Radical antegrade modular pancreatosplenectomy (RAMPS) versus conventional distal pancreatectomy for left-sided pancreatic cancer: findings of a multicenter, retrospective, propensity score matching study
AbstractPurposeRadical antegrade modular pancreatosplenectomy (RAMPS) has been reported to achieve high rates of a negative margin and resected metastatic lymph nodes. However, many studies have used historical controls and the results remain controversial. We conducted this study to compare the surgical and long-term outcomes of RAMPS vs. conventional distal pancreatectomy (DP).MethodsThe subjects of this multicenter retrospective study were 106 patients who underwent curative resection for left-sided pancreatic cancer between 2012 and 2017. Overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) rates were compared usin...

Ampullary carcinoma of the duodenum: current clinical issues and genomic overview
AbstractAmpullary carcinomas of the duodenum are uncommon. Moreover, the diversity in the clinical outcomes of these patients makes it difficult to interpret previous studies and clinical trial results. The difficulty in proper staging of ampullary carcinomas, especially with regard to the T category of the tumor in the TNM system, reflects the anatomic complexity and non-uniform histopathologic subtypes. One major reason for this difficulty in interpretation is that the tumors may arise from any of the three epithelia (duodenal, biliary, or pancreatic) that converge at this location. Generally, ampullary carcinomas are cl...

AbstractThe purpose of this study was to assess the psychometric properties of the Simplified Inguinal Pain Questionnaire (sIPQ) and compare it to the regular Inguinal Pain Questionnaire (IPQ) for external validation. To do so, the IPQ and sIPQ were telephonically administered at 7 and 28  days postoperatively for a cohort of 25 patients who underwent Lichtenstein hernioplasty. A psychometric analysis of the scores was done using Cronbach’s alpha and test–retest assessments. The agreement rate of the mean-standardized values between scores was afterwards calculated.

A no-ligation technique to prevent intraoperative hepatic artery dissection in living-donor liver transplantation
AbstractIntrahepatic recipient hepatic artery dissection caused by hepatic artery thrombosis is a lethal complication of living-liver donor liver transplantation (LDLT). We herein report a new surgical technique that avoids the ligation of the recipient hepatic arteries in LDLT. Patients undergoing LDLT between 2009 and 2019 were evaluated. In the second half of this period, a technique involving no ligation of the recipient hepatic artery was initiated and its impact on the incidence of intrahepatic recipient hepatic artery dissection was determined. The middle and left hepatic arteries were ligated in 195 cases (53.4%), ...

Clinical importance of “occult-bacterial translocation” in patients undergoing highly invasive gastrointestinal surgery: A review
AbstractIn the clinical setting, mild bacteremia cannot be detected by conventional culture methods, only by a highly sensitive bacterial detection system. One of the major causes of mild bacteremia is bacterial translocation (BT) induced by a dysregulated intestinal microenvironment and increased intestinal epithelial permeability. This condition is called “occult-bacterial translocation (O-BT)”; however, the concept of O-BT is not yet fully recognized. In our previous studies, done using a highly sensitive bacterial detection system such as bacterium-specific ribosomal RNA-targeted reverse transcriptase quant...
