Asian J Endosc Surg 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Surgery, Hyogo Prefectural Kakogawa Medical Center, Kakogawa, Japan.

Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair with intraperitoneal onlay mesh reinforcement is often performed in clinical practice. We herein describe a patient who developed a Spigelian hernia at the edge of the mesh due to rupture of the muscular layer in the abdominal wall. A 69-year-old woman developed a left-sided abdominal bulge 15 months after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. CT showed a 33-mm defect in the abdominal wall at the lateral edge of the left abdominal rectus muscle with an intestinal prolapse through the defect. She was diagnosed with a Spigelian hernia and underwent operation. The hernia orifice was located at the aponeurosis of the transverse abdominal muscle where the thread had been used to fix the mesh through all layers of the abdominal wall. This report details a case of a Spigelian hernia after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair.

[Brain Metastasis and Leptomeningeal Carcinomatosis after Surgery for Esophageal Cancer-A Case Report].

Gan To Kagaku Ryoho 2020 Nov;47(11):1593-1595

Dept. of Surgery, Hyogo Prefectural Kakogawa Medical Center.

A 70-year-old man had undergone thoracoscopic esophagectomy following neoadjuvant chemotherapy for thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma 3 years before presentation. He was undergoing whole-brain irradiation following surgery for a solitary brain metastatic tumor. The chief complaint was left leg pain during irradiation. FDG-PET/CT and MRI revealed metastases in bilateral cauda equina S1 nerve roots. Cerebrospinal fluid examination also revealed malignant cells. He received chemotherapy with 2 courses of 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin following 30 Gy of spinal irradiation. To control neurological symptoms, 4 courses of intrathecal chemotherapy with methotrexate, cytarabine, and betamethasone were performed. However, he gradually weakened and died 8 months after brain metastasis and 7 months after leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. The multidisciplinary treatment using irradiation and systemic and intrathecal chemotherapies could improve the survival of patients with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

[Effect of Proteinuria in Patients Receiving Anti-VEGF Therapy for Advanced Colorectal Cancer].

Gan To Kagaku Ryoho 2019 Aug;46(8):1334-1336

Dept. of Surgery, Hyogo Prefectural Kakogawa Medical Center.

Grade 2 or 3 proteinuria was observed in 54 patients out of 158 metastatic colorectal cancer patients receiving anti-VEGF therapy. Patients with diabetes and hypertension were risk for severe proteinuria. ARBs were more frequently used in patients with severe proteinuria. However, they could not reduce proteinuria. The examination of protein/creatinine ratio was useful for continuing anti-VEGF therapy.
