J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 Jan 18;26(1):9-42. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Surgery, School of Medicine, International University of Health and Welfare, Ichikawa, Japan.

IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) is a distinct type of cholangitis frequently associated with autoimmune pancreatitis and currently recognized as a biliary manifestation of IgG4-related disease. Although clinical diagnostic criteria of IgG4-SC were established in 2012, differential diagnosis from primary sclerosing cholangitis and cholangiocarcinoma is sometimes difficult. Furthermore, no practical guidelines for IgG4-SC are available. Read More

Authors:
Itaru Endo

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 Jan;26(1):1-8

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, Yokohama City University, 3-9 Fukuura, Kanazawa-ku, Yokohama, 236-0004, Japan.

The 30th meeting of the JSHBPS is the first domestic meeting of our society to have been organized completely in English. In that sense, we have established the theme of the 30th meeting of the JSHBPS as "The Second Opening of Japan on the Way to a Bright Future". Last 30 years, several strategies have been undertaken to battle hepatobiliary (HPB) malignancies, such as aggressive operative procedures, operative planning using state-of-the-art technologies, neoadjuvant therapy, conversion surgery for initially unresectable diseases, and immunomodulation.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Aug 23;25(8):377-387. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Department of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery, Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka, Japan.

Background: Age-related events, such as cardiopulmonary complications, delirium, transfer to a rehabilitation facility, and dependency are a major problem after hepatic resection in the elderly. This prospective multicenter study aimed to preoperatively evaluate frailty in the elderly according to a phenotypic frail index, named the "Kihon Checklist (KCL)," to predict "age-related events" after hepatic resection.

Methods: Between May 2016 and September 2017, 217 independently living patients who consented among all patients aged ≥65 years who planned to undergo hepatic resection were included in the study. Read More

Minimally invasive preservation versus splenectomy during distal pancreatectomy: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Nov 16;25(11):476-488. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Surgery and Oncology, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan.

Background: Minimally invasive distal pancreatectomy (MIDP) has gained in popularity recently. However, there is no consensus on whether to preserve the spleen or not. In this study, we compared MIDP outcomes between spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy (SPDP) and distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy (DPS); as well as outcomes between splenic vessel preservation (SVP) and Warshaw's technique (WT).

Cost-effectiveness of minimally invasive pancreatic resection.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Jun;25(6):291-298

Department of Surgical Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1400 Pressler, Unit 1484, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

While clinical outcomes of minimally invasive pancreatic resection (MIPR) compared to open surgery are well examined, only few studies focus on its associated cost. The aim of this study is to evaluate cost analyses comparing MIPR to open pancreatic resection (OPR). A systematic review of the literature using PubMed of all published studies between 2000 and 2017 was performed. Read More

Survival benefit of conversion surgery for patients with initially unresectable pancreatic cancer who responded favorably to nonsurgical treatment.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Jul 28;25(7):342-350. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery II, Hokkaido University, Faculty of Medicine, West-7, North-15, Kita-ku, Sapporo, 060-8638, Hokkaido, Japan.

Background: Conversion surgery (CS) is expected as a new therapeutic strategy for patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer (UR-PC). We analyzed outcomes of CS for patients with UR-PC and evaluated the survival benefit of CS.

Methods: Thirty-four patients diagnosed with UR-PC according to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guideline underwent CS in our hospital. Read More

Pure laparoscopic right hemihepatectomy using the caudodorsal side approach (with videos).

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Jul 15;25(7):335-341. Epub 2018 Jun 15.

Department of Surgery, Tokyo Metropolitan Cancer and Infectious Diseases Center Komagome Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: In our process of standardizing laparoscopic right hemihepatectomy (Lap-RH), we found several advantages of the laparoscopic caudate lobe first approach by using a unique laparoscopic caudodorsal view.

Methods: Between April 2012 and October 2017, 21 patients underwent pure Lap-RH at our hospital. The mean patient age was 62 years (range 36-75 years), and there were more male than female patients (66. Read More

Early ligation of the dorsal pancreatic artery with a mesenteric approach reduces intraoperative blood loss during pancreatoduodenectomy.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Jul 15;25(7):329-334. Epub 2018 Jun 15.

Department of Surgery, Nagoya Central Hospital, 3-7-7 Taiko, Nakamura-ku, Nagoya, 453-0801, Japan.

Background: Early ligation of the inferior pancreatoduodenal artery has been advocated to reduce blood loss during pancreatoduodenectomy. However, the impact of early ligation of the dorsal pancreatic artery (DPA) remains unclear. This study was performed to investigate the clinical implications of early ligation of the DPA. Read More

Preoperative biliary drainage associated with biliary stricture after pancreaticoduodenectomy: a population-based study.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Jun 24;25(6):308-318. Epub 2018 May 24.

Division of General Surgery, Department of Surgery, National Taiwan University Hospital, National Taiwan University College of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: The rate of preoperative biliary drainage for pancreaticoduodenectomy has been increasing despite most recent evidence that favors avoiding it. Only a few studies have focused on late surgical complications - biliary stricture after pancreaticoduodenectomy and have produced only inconclusive results. We evaluate the role of preoperative biliary drainage in the formation of biliary stricture after pancreaticoduodenectomy. Read More

Role of geranylgeranylacetone as non-toxic HSP70 inducer in liver surgery: clinical application.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 May 15;25(5):269-274. Epub 2018 Apr 15.

Department of Pathophysiology, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Tokushima University Graduate School, Tokushima, Japan.

Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are rapidly synthesized into cells in response to various types of physical or chemical insults and induce potent resistance to the stressors. A stress-inducible HSP70 is not expressed in normal conditions, but once HSP70 is excessively induced under various environmental stresses, HSP70-expressing cells can survive even under lethal conditions. In this review, we focused on the potential role of HSPs particularly HSP70 in liver surgery. Read More
