RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: We aimed to investigate the prognosis of patients who received radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for liver metastases of unresectable colorectal cancer (CRC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively compared 147 patients treated for CRC liver metastases, who underwent RFA (n=26), resection (n=92), and chemotherapy (n=29) between 2001 and 2021. RESULTS: RFA and chemotherapy were performed for unresectable or non-operable cases, and resection was performed for suitable cases. The median overall survival (OS) was 44.9, 49.5, and 11.6 months for patients who underwent RFA, resection, and chemotherapy, respectively. RFA led to a significantly shorter OS compared to resection (p=0.027) but to a longer OS compared to chemotherapy (p=0.003). The 5-year survival rates were 34.6% and 42.4% for patients who underwent RFA and resection, respectively (p=0.508). CONCLUSION: RFA has the potential to achieve long-term survival or radical cure, even for unresectable or non-operable cases of CRC with liver metastasis.

RESUMO

AIM: Anastomotic leakage (AL) in left-sided colorectal cancer is a serious complication, with an incidence rate of 6-18%. We developed a novel predictive model for AL in colorectal surgery with double-stapling technique (DST) anastomosis using auto-artificial intelligence (AI). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 256 patients who underwent curative surgery for left-sided colorectal cancer between 2017 and 2021 were included. In addition to conventional clinicopathological factors, we included the type of circular stapler using DST, conventional double-row circular stapler (DCS) or EEA™ circular stapler with Tri-Staple™ technology, 28 mm Medium/Thick (Covidien, New Haven, CT, USA) which had triple-row circular stapler (TCS) as a covariate. Auto-AI software Prediction One (Sony Network Communications Inc.) was used to predict AL with 5-fold cross validation. Predictive accuracy was assessed using the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve. Prediction One also evaluated the 'importance of variables' (IOV) using a method based on permutation feature importance. RESULTS: The area under the curve of the AI model was 0.766. The type of circular stapler used was the most influential factor contributing to AL (IOV=0.551). CONCLUSION: This auto-AI predictive model demonstrated an improvement in accuracy compared to the conventional model. It was suggested that use of a TCS may contribute to a reduction in the AL rate.

RESUMO

Lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) has been reported as a biomarker for predicting the prognosis of colorectal cancer. However, the clinical usefulness of LMR requires detailed research, which can contribute to better therapeutic strategies. A cohort of 554 patients with resectable advanced colon cancer in our institution was analyzed retrospectively. An analysis of stages II and III resectable advanced colon cancer was performed. LMR was useful for predicting overall survival (OS) and relapse-free survival (RFS). The ROC curve revealed an LMR value of 2.77 as a cutoff for OS. A high LMR was an independent prognostic factor and was associated with a high hazard ratio (HR) in all cases for OS (HR = 0.530, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.334-0.842, p = 0.007). A high LMR was not an independent prognostic factor in stage II cases but was a predictor with the strongest association with prognosis in patients with stage III cases for OS (HR = 0.383, 95% CI = 0.160-0.915, p = 0.031). LMR is a strong predictor of prognosis in patients with stage III colon cancer and may be useful in postoperative treatment options.

RESUMO

AIM: This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in elderly patients with Stage I-III colon cancer for long-term oncologic outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 175 patients aged >75 years who underwent radical surgery for Stage I-III colon cancer between 2000 and 2015 at our institute. Overall survival (OS), cancer-specific survival (CSS), and relapse-free survival (RFS) were evaluated according to NLR values using propensity score analysis. Patients were allocated to the higher NLR (H-NLR) or the lower NLR (L-NLR) group with a cut-off value of 2.3, based on receiver operating characteristic curve. RESULTS: Before case matching, there were significant differences between the two groups for CSS (p=0.023) and RFS (p<0.001), but not for OS (p=0.069). Similar results were obtained after case matching, with significant differences observed for CSS (p=0.003) and RFS (p=0.027), but not for OS (p=0.145). CONCLUSION: NLR may be a prognostic factor in elderly patients with colon cancer.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: We aimed to develop a novel recurrence prediction model for stage II-III colon cancer using simple auto-artificial intelligence (AI) with improved accuracy compared to conventional statistical models. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 787 patients who had undergone curative surgery for stage II-III colon cancer between 2000 and 2018 were included. Binomial logistic regression analysis was used to calculate the effect of variables on recurrence. The auto-AI software 'Prediction One' (Sony Network Communications Inc.) was used to predict recurrence with the same dataset used for the conventional statical model. Predictive accuracy was assessed by the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC). RESULTS: The AUC of the multivariate model was 0.719 (95%CI=0.655-0.784), whereas that of the AI model was 0.815, showing a significant improvement. CONCLUSION: This auto-AI prediction model demonstrates improved accuracy compared to the conventional model. It could be constructed by clinical surgeons who are not familiar with AI.

RESUMO

This study aimed to examine the risk factors for surgical site infection (SSI) and the association of that with recurrence in JCOG0212. The results for secondary endpoints showed that compared with the mesorectal excision (ME) alone group, ME with lateral lymph node dissection (LLND) group showed significantly longer operative time and significantly higher blood loss. These results suggested that LLND was a risk factor for SSI. All 701 patients registered in JCOG0212 were analyzed in this study. Wound infection was defined as incisional/deep SSI, and pelvic abscess and anastomotic leakage were defined as organ/space SSI. The risk factors for the incidence of SSI and the effect of SSI on relapse-free survival (RFS) were investigated. Multivariable odds ratio of Grade 2 or higher all SSI was 0.58 [95% Confidence interval: 0.36-0.93] for female (vs. male) and that of Grade 2 or higher incisional/deep SSI was 2.24 [1.03-4.86] for blood infusion. For RFS, patients with Grade 3 or higher all SSI showed poor prognosis (multivariable hazard ratio: 1.66 [1.03-2.68]). LLND is not significant factor for the incidence of all SSI. Male sex might be a risk factor of Grade 2 or higher SSI, and blood transfusion is a possible risk factor of Grade 2 or higher incisional/deep SSI. Grade 3 or higher all SSI might be a significant worse prognostic factor for lower rectal cancer.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistulas (CR-POPF) occurring after distal pancreatectomy often cause intra-abdominal infections. We monitored the presence of bacterial contamination in the ascitic fluid after distal pancreatectomy to clarify the bacterial origin of intra-abdominal infections associated with CR-POPF. METHODS: In 176 patients who underwent distal pancreatectomy, ascitic fluid bacterial cultures were performed on postoperative days (POD) 1-4 and when the drainage fluid became turbid. The association between postoperative ascitic bacterial contamination and CR-POPF incidence was investigated. RESULTS: CR-POPF occurred in 18 cases (10.2%). Among the patients with CR-POPF, bacterial contamination was detected in 0% on POD 1, in 38.9% on POD 4, and in 72.2% on the day (median, day 9.5) when the drainage fluid became turbid. A univariate analysis revealed a significant difference in ascitic bacterial contamination on POD 4 (p < 0.001) and amylase level on POD 3-4 (p < 0.001). A multivariate analysis revealed the amylase level and ascitic bacterial contamination on POD 4 to be independent risk factors. CONCLUSIONS: In the CR-POPF group, ascitic bacterial contamination was not observed in the early postoperative stage, but the bacterial contamination rate increased after pancreatic juice leakage occurred. Therefore, CR-POPF-related infections in distal pancreatectomy may be caused by a retrograde infection of pancreatic juice.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: This study assessed the efficacy and safety of biweekly trifluridine and tipiracil hydrochloride (TAS-102) with bevacizumab combination therapy for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 19 patients with mCRC who received TAS-102 and bevacizumab combination therapy biweekly as third-line chemotherapy. The primary endpoint was progression-free survival. RESULTS: Patients had a median age of 73 years and most (73.4%) were men. The median progression-free and overall survival were 5.6 and 11.5 months, respectively. Five (26.3%) patients achieved a response and the disease control rate was 12/19 (63.1%). One patient (5.2%) experienced neutropenia grade 3 or more. The median time from baseline performance status 0/1 to worsening to 2 or more was 10.3 months. CONCLUSION: Biweekly TAS-102 plus bevacizumab facilitates tumor shrinkage by reducing the incidence of grade 3 or more neutropenia, improving survival, and maintaining performance status. This combination may represent a treatment option for patients with late-stage mCRC receiving third- or later-line therapy.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic hepatojejunostomy (HJ) with continuous sutures is commonly performed in laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD). This study aimed to investigate the long-term surgical outcomes of HJ in LPD. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 103 consecutive patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy via laparoscopic HJ with continuous suturing using multifilament (n = 48) or monofilament-absorbable sutures (n = 47). RESULTS: During follow-up, anastomotic stricture of HJ was identified in 8 (7.8%) patients via balloon enteroscopy-assisted cholangiography. The median time from surgery to confirmation of stricture formation was 7.6 months (range 3.6-19.4). The incidence of HJ stricture was significantly higher in patients with a thin bile duct (diameter < 6.0 mm) than in those with a thick bile duct (diameter ≥ 6.0 mm) [7/27 (25.9%) vs. 1/76 (1.3%), respectively, p < 0.01]. Similarly, it was significantly higher in the monofilament group than in the multifilament group [7/54 (13.0%) vs. 1/49 (2.0%), respectively, p = 0.04]. In the monofilament suture group, 37.5% of patients with thin bile ducts developed stricture after HJ. A multivariate analysis revealed that a thin bile duct was an independent risk factor for HJ stricture (hazard ratio: 25.3, p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Stricture after laparoscopic HJ using continuous sutures frequently occurs in patients with thin bile ducts, particularly when monofilament-absorbable suture is used.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Complete mesocolic excision (CME) has been demonstrated to be a useful surgical procedure for advanced colon cancer. We previously reported on laparoscopic (Lap) CME with true central vascular ligation (CVL) for advanced right-sided colon cancer. Lap CME with true CVL is highly plausible from the perspective of surgical oncology. However, true CVL of the middle colic artery (MCA) may require extensive resection of the transverse colon. The Japanese Classification of Colorectal Cancer defines D3 as main lymph node dissection around the superior mesenteric artery (SMA), and true CVL is not listed as a required condition. Our institution has been performing a Lap procedure (Lap D3/modified CME) that consists of the dissection of main lymph nodes around the root of the MCA (#223LNs) while preserving the left branch of the MCA. Two videos of a Lap D3/modified CME are presented, and the short-term outcome is reported. METHODS: Lap D3/modified CME was defined as Lap ligation surgery at the root of the right branch of the MCA that preserves the MCA with #223LNs on the resection side. The present study retrospectively examined 11 cases of Lap D3/modified CME performed at the Tokyo Medical University Hospital between 2015 and 2020. When the SMA is difficult to visualize in Type V/A cases, the SMV is pulled using some silicone string, and the surrounding lymph nodes are dissected while visualizing the SMA. RESULTS: The median operating time was 289 min, and the median blood loss was 57 ml. The median total number of dissected lymph nodes was 38, and the median number of dissected #223LNs was three. No metastasis was found in the dissected #223LNs. CONCLUSION: Although this surgery can be performed safely, we believe that this surgery needs to be performed for suitable cases by a highly experienced and skilled surgical team.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: No previous study has compared the risk of surgical site infection (SSI) between intracorporeal anastomosis (IA) and extracorporeal anastomosis (EA) related to intra-abdominal infection in laparoscopic right hemicolectomy. Therefore, this study aimed to compare the risk of SSI in IA and EA in this context. METHODS: From July 2014 to March 2018, 101 consecutive (median age, 73 years; male, 54) patients underwent laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for colon cancer. The IA and EA groups consisted of 51 and 50 cases, respectively. After either IA or EA, lavage was performed with 100 mL of saline in the area surrounding the anastomosis, and a sample was collected for bacterial culture. The product of the virulence score and dose of bacterial contamination score called the risk of SSI score was evaluated in both groups, and short-term outcomes in both groups were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: No significant difference was found in patient characteristics between the 2 groups. The frequency of organ/space SSI in the IA group was significantly higher than that in the EA group (7.8% vs 0%, P = .04). The risk of SSI score was significantly higher in the IA group than in the EA group (median, 9 vs 1, P < .01). CONCLUSIONS: Compared with EA, IA in laparoscopic right hemicolectomy increased organ/space SSI rates, signifying intra-abdominal infection. We strongly recommend prevention of intra-abdominal infection when performing an IA.

RESUMO

Background: Noninferiority of the laparoscopic approach compared with open surgery for colon cancer treatment has remained controversial. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the long-term outcomes of laparoscopic surgery (LS) versus open surgery (OPS). Methods: A total of 418 patients with Stage I-III colon cancer, who received radical surgery at the Tokyo Medical University Hospital from 2000 to 2014 were included. Propensity score analysis with overall survival (OS) and relapse-free survival (RFS) as the primary endpoints was performed retrospectively to reduce the effects of confounding factors between groups, including age, sex, body mass index, tumor size, clinical T stage, and clinical N stage. Results: After case matching, the 5-year OS rate was 87.8% in the OPS group (n = 97) and 90.1% in the LS group (n = 97; P = .59), indicating no significant difference. The 5-year RFS rate was 79.0% in the OPS group (n = 97) and 84.1% in the LS group (n = 97; P = .29), indicating no significant difference. Five-year cumulative local recurrence (LR) rates were 7.6% and 0% in the OPS group and the LS group, respectively, indicating a significant difference (P = .007). Five-year cumulative distant metastasis rates were 9.2% and 12.7% in the OPS group and the LS group, respectively (P = .49). Conclusion: Laparoscopic surgery appears to be a reasonable option with similar long-term outcomes and to have low LR rate to open surgery in colon cancer patients.

RESUMO

Colorectal cancer (CRC) has increasing global prevalence and poor prognostic outcomes, and the development of low- or less invasive screening tests is urgently required. Urine is an ideal biofluid that can be collected non-invasively and contains various metabolite biomarkers. To understand the metabolomic profiles of different stages of CRC, we conducted metabolomic profiling of urinary samples. Capillary electrophoresis-time-of-flight mass spectrometry was used to quantify hydrophilic metabolites in 247 subjects with stage 0 to IV CRC or polyps, and healthy controls. The 154 identified and quantified metabolites included metabolites of glycolysis, TCA cycle, amino acids, urea cycle, and polyamine pathways. The concentrations of these metabolites gradually increased with the stage, and samples of CRC stage IV especially showed a large difference compared to other stages. Polyps and CRC also showed different concentration patterns. We also assessed the differentiation ability of these metabolites. A multiple logistic regression model using three metabolites was developed with a randomly designated training dataset and validated using the remaining data to differentiate CRC and polys from healthy controls based on a panel of urinary metabolites. These data highlight the changes in metabolites from early to late stage of CRC and also the differences between CRC and polyps.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: A large number of patients suffer recurrence after curative resection, and mortality from colon cancer remains high. The role of systemic inflammatory response, as reflected by neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), in cancer recurrence and death has been increasingly recognized. This study aimed to analyze long-term oncologic outcomes of Stage II-III colon cancer to examine the prognostic value of NLR using a propensity score analysis. METHODS: A total of 375 patients with colon cancer underwent radical surgery between 2000 and 2014 at Tokyo Medical University Hospital. Long-term oncologic outcomes of these patients were evaluated according to NLR values. A cut-off NLR of 3.0 was used based on receiver operating characteristic curve analysis. Primary outcomes were overall survival (OS) and relapse-free survival (RFS). An analysis of outcomes according to tumor sidedness was also performed. RESULTS: Patients with lower NLR values ("lower NLR group") were more likely to have lymph node metastasis compared to those with higher NLR values ("higher NLR group") before case matching. After case matching, clinical outcomes were similar between the two groups. There were no significant differences in 5-year OS and 5-year RFS rates between the two groups before case matching based on propensity scores. After case matching, 5-year OS rates were 94.5% in the lower NLR group (n = 135) and 87.0% in the higher NLR group (n = 135), showing a significant difference (p = 0.042). Five-year RFS rates were 87.8% in the lower NLR group and 77.9% in the higher NLR group, also showing a significant difference (p = 0.032). Among patients with left-sided colon cancer in the matched cohort, 5-year OS and 5-year RFS rates were 95.2 and 87.3% in the lower NLR group (n = 88), respectively, and 86.4 and 79.2% in the higher NLR group (n = 71), respectively, showing significant differences (p = 0.014 and p = 0.047, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: The NLR is an important prognostic factor for advanced colon cancer, especially for left-sided colon cancer.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Complete mesocolic excision (CME) is known to be effective for colon cancer. However, in right-sided colon cancer, central vascular ligation (CVL) is not easy to perform. In particular, in patients in whom the superior mesenteric vein (SMV) runs on the ventral side of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) (Type V/A), laparoscopic ligation of the artery at its root is extremely difficult compared with this procedure in patients in whom the SMA runs on the ventral side of the SMV (Type A/V). METHODS: We started performing laparoscopic CME with true CVL for right-sided colon cancer using the SMA as a landmark in 2015, and by 2019, we had completed it for 60 patients. To start, the mesocolon is opened well to the caudal side of the ileocolic vessels. The mesentery is then fully detached from the retroperitoneal tissue, after which the ileocolic vessels are ligated at their roots. D3 lymph node dissection of the lymph nodes around the SMA and SMV on the resection side is also performed using the SMA as a landmark, and depending on the location of the tumor, the roots of the right and middle colic vessels are ligated and divided. This study was conducted with the approval of the Tokyo Medical University Ethics Committee. All patients provided informed consent. RESULTS: The tumor was located in the cecum in 21 cases, the ascending colon in 33, and the transverse colon in 6. The mean operating time was 229 min and the mean volume of hemorrhage was 67 ml. There was one Clavien-Dindo Grade 3 or worse postoperative complication (ileus). There were no surgery-related or in-hospital deaths. CONCLUSION: This procedure can be performed comparatively safely. However, since it requires some skill, we consider that it should only be performed in suitable cases by teams with sufficient experience.

RESUMO

In September 2015, a 90-year-old woman presented with abdominal pain and emesis as the chief complaints. Except for WBC counts of 10,420/mL, CRP levels of 5.69mg/dL, and ALP levels of 359 IU/L, no other abnormal values were noted, and CEA and CA19-9 tumor marker levels were normal at 3.9 ng/mL and 5.7 U/mL, respectively. Abdominal CT showed intussusception of the right colon and a solid tumor at the presenting portion. Surgery for suspected intussusception caused by colon cancer was performed. Surgical findings revealed a protruding lesion at the ascending colon that extended to the transverse colon, and the intussusception was intrusive up to the ascending colon at the end of the intestinal ileum. Thus, resection of the right half colon and dissection of lymph nodes were performed. Resected specimens revealed a type 1 tumor measuring 65×50×30mm in diameter at the ascending colon. Histopathologic findings revealed tub1>tub2, SS, ly0, v0, PM0, DM0, N0 (0/27)Stage Ⅱa tumor. The postoperative course was favorable, and the patient was discharged on postoperative day 12. We report about a rare case of intussusception caused by ascending colon cancer.

RESUMO

The patient was a 26-year-old female who had undergone conservative treatment for acute appendicitis at another clinic and was referred to our hospital for interval appendectomy. We performed a single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy, and the patient was diagnosed with goblet cell carcinoid(GCC)based on the postoperative pathological examination. Since GCC is considered a high-grade tumor, we performed a laparoscopic ileocolic resection with D3 lymphadenectomy. There was no residual disease or lymph node metastasis detected in the resected specimen. Patients with advanced GCC typically have poor prognosis, because GCC is characterized by peritoneal dissemination and lymph node metastasis. However, our findings suggested that an additional laparoscopic surgery could be one of the curative and safe treatment options for selected pa- tients with GCC.

RESUMO

The modified Blumgart method for pancreaticojejunostomy has been shown to reduce the rate of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) in open surgery. We describe a modified Blumgart method using LAPRA-TY suture clips to facilitate laparoscopic pancreaticojejunostomy.We prepared a double-armed 4-0 nonabsorbable monofilament, which was ligated using the LAPRA-TY clip at the tail end, 12-cm in length. Next, the U-suture was placed through the pancreatic stump and the seromuscular layer of the jejunum. We performed duct-to-mucosa suturing with a 5-0 absorbable monofilament. After completing the duct-to-mucosa suturing, as a final step we placed the sutures through the seromuscular layer of the jejunum on the ventral side and tightly secured the thread with the LAPRA-TY clips. We performed laparoscopic Blumgart pancreaticojejunostomy during pancreaticoduodenectomy in 39 patients. We compared the surgical outcomes of 19 patients who underwent Blumgart pancreaticojejunostomy using the LAPRA-TY clips (LAPRA-TY group) with 20 patients undergoing surgery not using the LAPRA-TY clips (conventional group).The rate of clinically relevant postoperative pancreatic fistula in the LAPRA-TY group was 21.1%, which did not differ significantly from the rate of the conventional group. However, the mean time of pancreaticojejunostomy in the LAPRA-TY group was 56.2 min (range, 39-79 min), which was significantly shorter than that of the conventional group (69.7 min; range, 53-105 min, P < .001).Although the modified Blumgart pancreaticojejunostomy using LAPRA-TY suture clips did not improve the pancreatic fistula rate, it allowed for shorter operative times. Thus, this procedure lends itself to positive surgical and patient outcomes.

RESUMO

The aplastic anemia(AA)syndrome is characterized by pancytopenia and bone marrow hypoplasia. Although anemia, bleeding tendency, and susceptibility to infection are issues of concern during surgery, few reports have been published on the perioperative management, and management methods have not been established. A 77-year-old woman visited our hospital with chief complaints of melena and fatigability. Marked pancytopenia was observed at the first visit. After a detailed examination, she was diagnosed with ascending colon cancer accompanied by AA and solitary liver metastasis. As AA responded poorly to treatment, without improvement in pancytopenia, we decided to perform colectomy. The perioperative management, including blood transfusion and administration of a G-CSF preparation, was performed in collaboration with a hematologist, followed by right hemicolectomy and hepatic lateral segmentectomy. She was transferred to the department of hematology on hospital day 8 without complications. In conclusion, a highly invasive surgery, as in the present case, can be performed safely with an appropriate perioperative management even in cases complicated by AA.
