BACKGROUND Wound complications following abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) in a contaminated setting are common and significantly increase the risk of hernia recurrence. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of short-term negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) followed by operative delayed primary closure (DPC) of the skin and subcutaneous tissue after AWR in a contaminated setting. METHODS A prospective institutional hernia database was queried for patients who underwent NPWT-as...

Background The lesion detection rate of esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) varies depending on the degree of experience of the endoscopist and anatomical blind spots. This study aimed to identify gaze patterns and blind spots by analyzing the endoscopist's gaze during real-time EGD. Methods Five endoscopists were enrolled in this study. The endoscopist's eye gaze tracked by an eye tracker was selected from the esophagogastric junction to the second portion of the duodenum without the esophagus dur...
BACKGROUND Gastroduodenal perforation is potentially life threatening and requires early diagnosis and treatment. Urgent endoscopy facilitates detecting bleeding sites and achieving hemostasis. However, there is no consensus on urgent endoscopy for gastroduodenal perforation in Japan. METHODS We evaluated the effectiveness and safety of urgent endoscopy for gastroduodenal perforation. We compared clinical characteristics between 140 patients who underwent urgent endoscopy (urgent endoscopy group...

BACKGROUND Owing to an increased number of colonoscopy screenings, the incidence of diagnosed rectal neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has also increased. Tumor size is one of the most frequently regarded factors when selecting treatment; however, it may not be the determinant prognostic variable. We aimed to evaluate oncological outcomes according to the treatment modality based on the size of rectal NETs. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed on patients who were treated for rectal NETs be...

BACKGROUND Percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) is an important procedure for initial treatment of severe acute cholecystitis (AC) that is contraindicated for early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). We presented our primary experience on a new approach of cholangiography via PTGBD (PTGBD-C) for preoperative delineation of biliary anatomy. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted on 93 patients who received PTGBD followed by LC for AC, with allocation into 2 groups that w...

BACKGROUND Fundoplication and medical management are current mainstays for management of Barrett's esophagus (BE), however our understanding of differences in outcomes between these two treatments is limited. The aim of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy of these interventions on BE disease regression and progression. METHODS AND PROCEDURES A comprehensive search in MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library databases was p...

BACKGROUND Sphincter-saving operation is the treatment of choice in patients with lower rectal cancer, although abdominoperineal resection (APR) is necessary in some cases for adequate oncological outcomes. This study compared the oncologic outcomes of patients with low rectal cancer undergoing APR and intersphincteric resection (ISR) after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT). METHODS We compared 104 patients who underwent ISR for lower rectal cancer between 2008 and 2014 with 79 patients who u...

BACKGROUND Open and laparoscopic modalities are employed for treatment of sportsman's hernia with totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) and trans-abdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) laparoscopic approaches both currently being utilised. At present, neither subtype has demonstrated a beneficial superiority for sportsman's hernia repair, as concluded in the most recent systematic review comparing the outcomes of each technique. The aim of this review was to evaluate current evidence to ascertain whether ther...

BACKGROUND Despite reports of the short-term benefits of end-to-side versus side-to-side anastomosis, we are aware of no prospective studies in which these methods were compared. We hypothesized the superiority of end-to-side over side-to-side anastomosis in terms of recovery after laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for colon cancer under an enhanced recovery program. METHODS From September 2016 to August 2019, 130 patients were randomly allocated to receive end-to-side or side-to-side anastomosis...

INTRODUCTION Endoscopic bariatric therapies (EBT) are emerging as effective therapies in the management of overweight patient with or without metabolic syndrome. Unfortunately most procedures only restrict the gastric volume without altering the underlying metabolism which is seen in surgical patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility and limitations of a natural orifice trans-luminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) one anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB). METHODS NOTES OAGB was...
