Transmediastinal approach for esophageal cancer: A new trend toward radical surgery.

Asian J Endosc Surg 2019 Jan;12(1):30-36

Department of Surgery, Division of Digestive Surgery, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), the most common histology of esophageal cancer in Japan and Asia, shows extensive mediastinal spread from an early stage. Therefore, transthoracic esophagectomy with extensive mediastinal lymphadenectomy, including in the upper mediastinum along the recurrent laryngeal nerves, is the gold standard of radical surgery for ESCC. Minimally invasive thoracoscopic esophagectomy has now become a standard option for ESCC. Read More

Recent advances in thoracoscopic esophagectomy for esophageal cancer.

Asian J Endosc Surg 2019 Jan 27;12(1):19-29. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Surgery, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Technical advances and developments in endoscopic equipment and thoracoscopic surgery have increased the popularity of minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE). However, there is currently no established scientific evidence supporting the use of MIE as an alternative to open esophagectomy (OE). To date, a number of single-institution studies and several meta-analyses have demonstrated acceptable short-term outcomes of thoracoscopic esophagectomy for esophageal cancer, and we recently reported one of the largest propensity score-matched comparison studies between MIE and OE for esophageal cancer, based on a nationwide Japanese database.

Safe and easy technique for the laparoscopic application of Seprafilm® in gynecologic surgery.

Asian J Endosc Surg 2019 Apr 13;12(2):242-245. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, School of Medicine, Keio University, Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery, and the rate of postoperative adhesions is low. Although Seprafilm® helps to reduce adhesions, its application in the abdominal cavity during laparoscopic surgery is difficult because of its material. Therefore, we propose an easy method for applying this adhesion barrier. Read More

Factors affecting non-operative management of uncomplicated appendicitis in children: Should laparoscopic appendectomy be immediate, interval, or emergency?

Asian J Endosc Surg 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Pediatric General and Urogenital Surgery, Juntendo University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: We conducted a prospective non-randomized comparison of children with uncomplicated appendicitis treated either by primary laparoscopic appendectomy (PLA) or by non-operative management (NOM) followed by interval laparoscopic appendectomy (ILA) if NOM was successful or emergency laparoscopic appendectomy (ELA) if NOM was unsuccessful.

Methods: Before 2015, all patients with uncomplicated appendicitis underwent PLA using a standard three-port technique. Postoperatively, piperacillin/tazobactam was administered until the white blood cell count was less than 10 000/μL and patients were afebrile. Read More

Is transperitoneal laparoscopic radical nephrectomy suitable for patients with a history of abdominal surgery?

Asian J Endosc Surg 2018 Dec 2. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Urology, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy is the gold standard for treatment of renal cell carcinoma. However, previous abdominal surgery is generally regarded as a contraindication to the laparoscopic approach because it causes intraperitoneal adhesions, which are thought to interfere with subsequent laparoscopic procedures inside the abdominal cavity. Few studies have examined the influence of prior surgery on laparoscopic nephrectomy. Read More

Is postponed laparoscopic appendectomy justified for patients with acute appendicitis?

Asian J Endosc Surg 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Division of Surgery, Fujinomiya City General Hospital, Fujinomiya, Japan.

Introduction: Recent meta-analyses revealed that laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) is a feasible procedure even for patients with complicated appendicitis. More than a few patients with acute appendicitis arrive at the hospital during night shifts and have their operation postponed for various reasons. However, the feasibility and disadvantages of this so-called "postponed laparoscopic appendectomy" (PLA) remain controversial. Read More
