Introduction null Selecting the hub genes associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to construct a COX regression model for predicting prognosis in HCC patients. null Methods null Using HCC patient data from the ICGC and TCGA databases, screened for 40 core genes highly correlated with histological grade of HCC. Univariate and multivariate COX regression analysis were performed on the genes highly associated with HCC prognosis and the model was established. The expression of those genes was...

INTRODUCTION Pancreatic duct stents are widely used to reduce the incidence of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD); however, small stents may cause adverse effects, such as occlusion. Recently, we have tried placing a 7.5-Fr pancreatic duct stent to achieve more effective exocrine output from the pancreas; however, the association between pancreatic duct stent size and POPF remains unknown. METHODS Sixty-five patients with soft pancreatic texture who underw...
Major hepatectomy in patients with insufficient future liver remnant (FLR) volume and impaired liver functional reserve has considerable risks for posthepatectomy liver failure (PHLF). The patient was a male in his 70 with an intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) in left hemiliver, involving the middle hepatic vein (MHV). Although FLR volume after left hemihepatectomy was estimated to be 64.4% of the total liver volume, an indocyanine green retention rate at 15 min (ICG-R15) value was 24.2%, thu...

INTRODUCTION Given that doubling time is an indicator of tumor growth, we assessed the usefulness of carcinoembryonic antigen doubling time (CEA-DT) in prognosis prediction after curative resection for locally recurrent rectal cancer. METHODS During January 1986 to December 2016, 33 patients with locally recurrent rectal cancer who underwent curative resection at our hospital were retrospectively reviewed. The primary endpoint was the 3-year recurrence-free survival (RFS) rate. The Kaplan-Meier ...

INTRODUCTION The impact of acute inflammation on cancer progression is still not well elucidated. Pancreatic head cancer is occasionally associated with acute cholangitis. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a biomarker that indicates presence of acute inflammation. METHODS We reviewed the patients' data with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy between 2004 and 2018. RESULTS Two hundred ninety-one patients were included. Median preoperative CRP was 0.45 mg/dL (0...

INTRODUCTION Endoscopic pneumatic pyloric balloon dilation is a treatment option for early postoperative delayed gastric tube emptying following esophageal resection. This study aimed to determine the safety and effectiveness of endoscopic balloon dilation. METHODS Between 2015 and 2018, patients with delayed gastric emptying 8-10 days after esophageal resection with gastric tube reconstruction due to esophageal carcinoma were considered for inclusion. Inclusion criteria were ≥1 of the following...

INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to identify preoperative risk factors for poor survival in patients with resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) treated with upfront surgery. METHODS Medical records of 268 patients with resectable PDAC defined by resectability status who underwent upfront surgery were reviewed retrospectively. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify preoperative risk factors for recurrence-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS). Moreover, a bina...

INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to determine if the common bile duct (CBD) diameter increases physiologically with age and investigate whether gallstones lead to changes in CBD diameter. METHOD Our study is composed of 721 patients in 2 groups: 517 asymptomatic patients and 204 gallstones patients who underwent MRCP. Their CBD diameter was measured at its widest visible portion on MRCP. Simple linear regression of the average of these measurements was used to investigate the relationship b...

Introduction null Patients with very early-stage gastric signet ring cell carcinoma (SRC) are eligible for minimally invasive treatment, like endoscopic submucosal dissection. However, population-based data on regional lymph node metastasis (LNM) and distant metastasis of gastric SRC are lacking. This study aimed to identify the prevalence of LNM and distant metastasis in mucosal cancer (T1a) of gastric SRC. null Methods null The Collaborative Stage Data Survey was performed by the Korean Center...

INTRODUCTION With growing interest in the watch-and-wait strategy, the benefits of avoiding surgery and its complications must be weighed against possible recurrence and need for salvage surgery. However, the relationship between pathologic complete response (pCR) and postoperative complications has not been well established. METHODS This is a retrospective study using the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Proctectomy and Colectomy Procedure-Targeted databases from 2016 to 2018. The ...
