RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The short- and long-term outcomes of esophagectomy for esophageal cancer were fully evaluated in patients older than 75 years of age. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The present study selected patients who received esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. Patients were divided into non-elderly patients [age <75 years (non-elderly group)] and elderly patients [age ≥75 years (elderly group)]. The postoperative surgical morbidity, postoperative 30-days mortality, recurrence-free survival (RFS), and overall survival (OS) rates were evaluated between the non-elderly group and elderly group. RESULTS: One hundred twenty-two patients were evaluated in this study. Ninety-eight patients and 24 patients were classified into the non-elderly group and elderly group, respectively. The postoperative surgical complication rates in the non-elderly and elderly groups were 71.4% and 75.0%. There was not a statistically significant difference between the two groups (p=0.710). Mortality was observed in 1 patient in the elderly group (4.2%) due to cardiovascular disease. Significant differences were observed in the five-year OS and RFS rates of the elderly and non-elderly groups (55.4% vs. 29.7%, p=0.0017 and 42.2% vs. 21.2%, p=0.0334, respectively). CONCLUSION: Although the rate of postoperative surgical complications after esophagectomy for esophageal cancer was almost equal in the elderly and the non-elderly patients, significant differences were observed in the mortality and long-term outcomes of the two groups. Thus, the surgical strategy and perioperative care must be carefully planned for esophageal cancer patients older than 75 years of age.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: To evaluate the outcomes of curative resection for Borrmann type IV gastric cancer through an analysis of the clinical, surgical and pathological data and through identifying which of these prognostic factors are associated with survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 2798 patients who had undergone excision of the primary lesion and 122 patients with type IV gastric cancer undergoing curative resection (R0 or 1) at Yokohama City University Hospital and Kanagawa Cancer Center between November 1995 and May 2016. RESULTS: Borrmann type IV gastric cancer had more advanced and unfavorable clinicopathological factors compared to other types. The 5-year overall survival rate was 28%, and the median survival was 21.8 months. The overall survival rate was influenced by the depth of invasion, lymph node metastasis, peritoneal lavage cytology (CY), stage and intraoperative blood loss. Of these, independent prognostic factors were intraoperative blood loss (<400 vs. ≥400 ml, risk ratio 1.64; p=0.045) and CY (0 vs. 1, risk ratio 2.25; p=0.004). CONCLUSION: The control of intraoperative bleeding had a positive impact on the survival of patients receiving curative resection for Borrmann type IV gastric cancer.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: We investigated the clinical influence of anastomotic leak (AL) on esophageal cancer survival and recurrence after curative surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 122 patients who underwent curative surgery for esophageal cancer between 2008 and 2018. The patients were classified into those with AL and those without. The risk factors for overall (OS) and recurrence-free (RFS) survival were identified. RESULTS: AL was found in 44 out of the 122 patients (36.1%). The respective OS rates at 3 and 5 years after surgery were 43.9% and 40.2% in the AL group and 63.9% and 53.2% in the non-AL group, which were significantly different (p=0.0049). In contrast, the respective RFS rates at 3 and 5 years after surgery were 44.8% and 29.8%, and 44.9% and 42.4%, which were not significantly different (p=0.2306). A multivariate analysis showed that AL was a significant independent risk factor for both poorer OS and RFS in patients who underwent curative surgery for esophageal cancer. CONCLUSION: To improve survival of patients with esophageal cancer, the surgical procedure, perioperative care and surgical strategy must be carefully planned in order to prevent AL.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The C-reactive protein (CRP)-to-serum albumin ratio is associated with a poor prognosis in patients with several cancers. The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between the preoperative CRP/Alb ratio and overall survival of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) in patients who received radical surgery and S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 117 patients who underwent radical surgery with S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy. We constructed receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC curve) of the CRP/Alb ratio to determine the cut-off value. We analyzed the relationship among the CRP/Alb ratio, clinicopathological status, and survival. RESULTS: The optimal cut-off value of the CRP/Alb ratio was 0.036. All patients were divided into a high-ratio group (CRP/Alb ratio ≥0.036) and low-ratio group (CRP/Alb ratio <0.036). The 5-year overall survival (OS) rates in the high- and low-ratio groups were 22.5% and 36.4%, respectively (p=0.0089). The 5-year disease-free survival (DFS) rates in the high- and low-ratio groups were 12.5% and 22.1%, respectively (p=0.0097). The univariate and multivariate analyses of the OS showed that the pathological N factor and CRP/Alb ratio were independent factors of the survival. The univariate and multivariate analyses of the RFS showed that the pathological N factor, resection margin, and CRP/Alb ratio were independent factors of the survival. CONCLUSION: The preoperative CRP/Alb ratio is a strong prognostic factor for PDAC patients with undergo curative resection with S-1 adjuvant chemotherapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Endothelial cell-specific molecule-1 (ESM-1) is a soluble proteoglycan which has important role in various biological events. We investigated the impact of the ESM-1 expression in cancer tissues on outcomes in stage II/III gastric cancer patients who received adjuvant S-1 chemotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The ESM-1 mRNA expression in cancerous tissues and adjacent normal mucosa from 253 patients was measured. The associations between the ESM-1 gene expression and the survival and clinicopathological features were investigated. RESULTS: A significant association was observed between high ESM-1 expression and undifferentiated adenocarcinoma. The overall survival curve was significantly lower in patients with high ESM-1 expression than in those with low expression (p=0.005). High ESM-1 expression was a significant independent prognosticator (HR=2.291, p=0.007). CONCLUSION: ESM-1 gene expression in cancerous tissues is an important prognosticator in stage II/III gastric cancer patients who received adjuvant S-1 chemotherapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: The KIAA1199 gene has been associated with cancer-cell proliferation, but its functions remain poorly studied. Here, we examined the clinical significance of the KIAA1199 mRNA levels in locally advanced gastric cancer (GC). Materials and Methods/Results: Using samples from 254 patients with stage II/III GC, we found significantly higher KIAA1199 levels in cancerous tissues compared to adjacent normal mucosa (ANM). There was no significant relationship between KIAA1199 expression and clinical features. Although overall survival rates (OSR) of patients, who underwent surgery did not correlate with KIAA1199 expression, patients who underwent adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 and had high KIAA1199 levels displayed significantly lower OSR. KIAA1199 knock down (KIAA1199-KD) suppressed proliferation, invasiveness, and sensitivity of GC cells to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). CONCLUSION: KIAA1199 expression appears to be a promising prognostic marker in patients with locally advanced GC, who underwent postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1. KIAA1199 may represent a novel target for GC pharmacotherapy.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: We retrospectively evaluated the blood coagulation activity using the D-dimer level in the early period after gastrectomy and investigated whether postoperative hypercoagulation affects tumor recurrence and long-term survival in gastric cancer patients. METHODS: The study involved 650 patients who underwent curative resection for gastric cancer at Kanagawa Cancer Center between July 2009 and July 2013. They were divided into a low-D-dimer group (LD group) and high-D-dimer group (HD group) according to the median D-dimer level on postoperative day (POD) 7. The risk factors for overall survival (OS) and relapse-free survival (RFS) were identified. RESULTS: Of the 448 enrolled patients, 218 were classified into the LD group and 230 into the HD group. The 5-year OS rates after surgery were 90.8% and 81.3% in the LD and HD groups, respectively (p < 0.001). The 5-year RFS rates after surgery were 89.9% and 76.1% in the LD and HD groups, respectively (p < 0.001). A high D-dimer level on POD 7 (≥ 4.9 µg/ml) was identified as an independent predictive factor for both the OS (hazard ratio [HR] 1.955, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.158-3.303, p = 0.012) and RFS (HR 2.182, 95% CI 1.327-3.589, p = 0.002). Furthermore, hematological recurrence was significantly more frequent in the HD group than in the LD group (p = 0.014). CONCLUSION: A high D-dimer level on POD 7 may predict tumor recurrence and the long-term survival in patients who undergo gastrectomy for locally advanced gastric cancer. Patients with an elevated postoperative D-dimer level need careful observation and diagnostic imaging to timely detect tumor recurrence.

RESUMO

Background: The aim of this study was to determine whether or not the short- and long-term outcomes were affected by the age-adjusted Charlson comorbidity index (ACCI) in patients who underwent curative resection for gastric cancer. Methods: The patients were retrospectively selected from among the medical records of consecutive patients who underwent curative gastrectomy with nodal dissection for gastric cancer at Yokohama City University and Kanagawa Cancer Center from January 2000 to August 2015. Results: A total of 2254 patients were eligible for inclusion in the present study. One thousand six hundred fifty-six patients had an ACCI of <6 points (ACCI low group), while 598 had a score of ≥6 points (ACCI high group). The median age (p<0.001) and American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status (ASA-PS) score (p<0.001) of the ACCI high group were higher in comparison to the ACCI low group. The incidence of surgical complications in the ACCI high group was significantly higher than that in the ACCI low group (12.0% vs. 7.2%, p<0.001). Univariate and multivariate analyses demonstrated that an ACCI high classification was a significant risk factor for postoperative complications. In addition, the 5-year OS rates of the ACCI low and ACCI high groups were 85.4% and 74.1%, respectively. The difference was statistically significant (p<0.001). The univariate and multivariate analyses demonstrated that an ACCI high classification was a significant prognostic factor for OS. Conclusions: Our results support that a high ACCI value is an independent risk factor for the short- and long-term outcomes of patients with gastric cancer. To improve the survival of patients with gastric cancer, it is necessary to carefully plan the perioperative care and the surgical strategy according to the ACCI.

RESUMO

This is a case of a 76-year-old man who had no significant past medical or family history. In the current medical history, in November 2017, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a semicircular protruding lesion in the posterior wall of the gastric antrum, and gastric cancer was diagnosed following biopsy. Endoscopic submucosal dissection(ESD)was performed in the same year for the treatment of gastric cancer(cT1aN0M0). Pathological findings after ESD treatment showed invasion into the submucosa requiring non-curative resection. For this reason, laparoscopic pylorus side gastrectomy(D1 dissection)and Billroth Ⅰ reconstruction were performed as additional procedures in March 2018. The patient was discharged on the 10th postoperative day and was followed-up on an outpatient basis. On the postoperative day 14, he was re-admitted with complaints of upper abdominal pain and exacerbation of inflammation. Medical treatment, such as antibiotic administration was followed, however, a high degree of inflammatory response, renal dysfunction, and occult blood in urine were observed. Because of suspicion of vasculitis-related nephritis, the case was diagnosed as anti-GBM antibody type rapid progressive nephritis. We came across a case of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis after laparoscopic pylorus side gastrectomy performed for early gastric cancer, and hence, We will review the related literature.

RESUMO

We report a case of altered consciousness related to hyperammonemia due to FOLFIRI plus bevacizumab therapy in a patient with recurrent colorectal cancer and renal dysfunction.A 76-year-old man received third-line chemotherapy for left mediastinal lymph node metastasis.He complained of diarrhea on the evening of the same day, and mental confusion on day 3 of the first FOLFIRI therapy.He had a JCS of Ⅲ(200).The laboratory results revealed a marked hyperammonemia.5 - fluorouracil(5-FU)-induced hyperammonemia was diagnosed and the patient was ventilated and managed with branchedchain amino acid solutions, lactulose, and hemodialysis in the ICU.After hemodialysis, the blood ammonia level reduced to the normal limits, and the symptoms of encephalopathy resolved on the following day.He was discharged home on the 19th day of hospitalization.5 -FU-containing therapy should be carefully administered in patients with renal dysfunction.Herein, we report a case of 5-FU-induced hyperammonemia with literature considerations.

RESUMO

Appendiceal mucinous neoplasm has a risk for pseudomyxoma peritonei caused by appendiceal perforation.It has been reported that laparoscopic surgery is more risky than open surgery.We investigated 4 patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery for appendiceal mucinous neoplasm.The median age was 69.5(49-85).There were 3 males and 1 female.Three cases of partial laparoscopic resection of the cecum and 1 case of ileocecal resection with lymph node dissection were performed. The pathology was low-grade mucinous neoplasm in all cases.The median hospital stay was 6 days, and there were no postoperative complications(CD Grade 3 or higher)or hospital death.As for long-term results, peritoneal pseudomyxoma developed in 1 case, which had already ruptured at the time of surgery.There were no recurrences in other cases.This result suggests that laparoscopic surgery for appendiceal mucinous neoplasm is safe with optimal selection of the procedure and a protective technique.

RESUMO

A 77-year-old woman was taking anticoagulant medication for pulmonary hypertension. Black stools were noted in August 2018. Close abdominal ultrasonography revealed a broad-based tumor at the base of the gallbladder. Lower endoscopy showed no obvious digestive tract hemorrhage but hemorrhage from a gallbladder tumor was suspected. The resected procedure was suspected for gallbladder cancer(cT2N0M0, cStageⅡ), but dizziness 5 days before operation. The patient complained of severe anemia, and underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy for hemorrhage control. In the macroscopic examination of the specimens, tumorous lesions and blood clots were found adhered to the bottom of the gallbladder. The histopathological diagnosis was papillary adenocarcinoma.

RESUMO

A 52-year-old man whose fecal occult blood test was positive was found to have type 2 sigmoid colon cancer by colonoscopy. On enhanced barium enema study, the cecum was in the pelvis, and the ascending colon was running medially in the abdomen. Enhanced CT scan of the abdomen revealed rotation of the superior mesenteric vein(SMV). We diagnosed the case as sigmoid colon cancer(cT3N0M0, StageⅡA)with non rotation-type intestinal malrotation, and performed laparoscopic surgery. We confirmed the small intestine to be located on the right side of the abdomen, the cecum to be located in the pelvis, and the ascending colon to be running medially in the abdomen. The ascending mesocolon was adherent to the right of the sigmoid mesocolon. Following dissections of the ascending mesocolon from the sigmoid mesocolon, we performed surgery via the inside approach as usual. We dissected the root of the inferior mesenteric artery(IMA), and the operation was completed. In laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer with intestinal malrotation, there are some reports that it could be performed safely if attention is paid to adhesion of the mesenteries and vascular variation in the course of preoperative imaging diagnosis. We report a case of laparoscopic surgery that could be safely performed for sigmoid colon cancer with non rotation-type intestinal malrotation.

RESUMO

This case involved a 42-year-old woman who had no remarkable findings in terms of case history and family history. Upper gastrointestinal series performed during a medical examination revealed ulcerative lesions in the anterior wall of the stomach body. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was performed, and a submucosal tumor with a maximum diameter of 50mm accompanied by an ulcerative lesion was found in the anterior wall of the lower part of the stomach. She was diagnosed with a schwannoma based on endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine needle aspiration, and we received consultation for surgical purpose. Surgery was performed with laparoscopic partial resection of the stomach and lymph nodes in the lesser curvature of the stomach. She was discharged on the 7th day after the surgery. The postoperative pathologic findings showed no nuclear fissure or atypia with a diagnosis of a schwannoma and no lymph node metastasis. Gastric schwannoma is a rare disease that arises from Schwann cells of the Auerbach's plexus of the gastric wall muscularis and comprises 0.1-0.2% of all stomach tumors. Preoperative diagnosis is often extremely difficult, and there are reports of malignancy. Treatments and surgical methods should be carefully considered. Herein, we encountered a case of a resected giant gastric schwannoma by laparoscopic surgery, which is reported with a literature review.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: A retrospective study was performed to evaluate the predictive factors for performing curative-intent surgery and prognostic factors for long-term survival of patients undergoing surgery for stage IV gastric cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2001 and 2017, 271 patients with stage IV gastric cancer with distant metastasis who underwent systemic chemotherapy were enrolled. Logistic regression analysis was performed to evaluate predictive factors for curative-intent surgery. Cox proportional hazards regression model was applied for patients who were subsequently treated with curative-intent surgery to identify prognostic factors for long-term survival. RESULTS: Curative-intent surgery was performed in 48 patients (17.7%). Median survival time was significantly longer in the surgery group than in the nonsurgery group (53 vs. 11 months, p < 0.0001). R0 resection was performed in 35 patients (72.9%). The three-year overall survival (OS) rates of the R0, R1, and R2 surgery groups were 75.4%, 33.3%, and 25.0%, respectively (p = 0.0002). Logistic regression analysis revealed that lymphogenous distant metastasis alone (odds ratio = 3.276, p = 0.004), positive lavage cytology alone (6.394, 0.014), doublet or triplet chemotherapy (4.064, 0.034), and high Glasgow prognostic score (0.276, 0.001) were independent predictive factors for performing curative-intent surgery. Among patients undergoing surgery, the Cox proportional hazards regression model for OS showed that R0 surgery was an independent prognostic factor for favorable OS (hazard ratio 0.188, p = 0.022). CONCLUSIONS: Patients with lymphogenous distant metastasis alone, P0CY1 alone, good immunonutritional status, and doublet/triplet chemotherapy are candidates for performing effective curative-intent surgery. R0 surgery is crucial for improving long-term survival after surgery.

RESUMO

Aims: We previously demonstrated that a loss of lean body mass loss at one month after gastrectomy was an independent risk factor for the continuation of adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1. However, it is unclear whether or not lean body mass loss after gastrectomy leads to a poor survival through poor compliance to adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1. Methods: The recurrence free survival (RFS) overall survival (OS) and were examined in 115 patients who underwent curative gastrectomy and were pathologically diagnosed with stage II or III gastric cancer and who received postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 between May 2011 and September 2016. Results: The median follow-up period was 40.6 months. The RFS rates at 5 years after surgery were 57.8% in the lean body mass loss ≥5% group and 73.5% in the lean body mass loss <5% group. The univariate and multivariate analyses for the disease free survival (RFS) demonstrated that a lean body mass loss >5% was a significant risk factor. The OS rates at 5 years after surgery were 72.0% in the lean body mass loss ≥5% group and 77.3% in the lean body mass loss <5% group. The OS was slightly worse in the lean body mass loss ≥5% group than in the lean body mass loss <5% group (p=0.2062). Conclusions: The lean body mass loss at one month, which is closely associated with poor S-1 compliance, was an important risk factor for the RFS. A prospective cohort study is necessary to confirm whether or not the lean body mass loss affects the gastric cancer survival.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: The purpose of this study was to reveal the safety and efficacy of additional surgical resection (ASR) for high-risk T1 colorectal cancer (CRC) after endoscopic resection (ER). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 191 patients with high-risk T1 CRC after ER. RESULTS: The ASR was performed in 176 (92.1%) patients and 15 (7.9%) rejected ASR. All patients that underwent ASR experienced R0 resection; laparoscopic surgery was performed in 159 (90.3%) patients. Clavien-Dindo complications ≥grade II occurred in 33 patients (18.8%). Anastomotic leakage (8.5%) and ileus (5.7%) were the most frequent complications. The anus function was preserved in all patients. Metastatic lymph node was detected in 21 (11.9%) patients. There were no deaths or relapses in patients with ASR. One patient without ASR (6.7%) had a lymph node recurrence. CONCLUSION: ASR was safe and effective and is recommended for high-risk T1 CRC patients after ER. A satisfactory long-term outcome can be achieved.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: We investigated the impact of Beppu's nomogram on colorectal liver metastasis in patients receiving perioperative chemotherapy and/or targeted therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 43 patients who underwent primary hepatic resection for colorectal liver metastasis at the Kanagawa Cancer Center from June 2006 to March 2011. The patients were classified as having a Beppu's nomogram score ≤9 (low-risk group) or ≥10 (high-risk group). The risk factors for the disease-free survival (DFS) were identified. RESULTS: The respective DFS rates at 1, 2, and 3 years after surgery were 72.0%, 43.3%, and 17.3% in the low-risk group and 27.8%, 16.7%, and 8.3% in the high-risk group, the difference being significant (p=0.009). The multivariate analysis showed that Beppu's nomogram score ≥10 was a significant independent risk factor for the DFS. CONCLUSION: Beppu's nomogram score was an independent prognostic factor for colorectal liver metastasis in patients receiving perioperative chemotherapy and/or targeted therapy. Thus, Beppu's nomogram might be a useful tool for predicting the risk of recurrence after hepatectomy, even in the era of newly-developed chemotherapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Postoperative pneumonia after esophageal cancer can lead to additional pain, prolonged hospital stay, and respiratory failure. These adverse events might lead to early recurrence and/or death. We investigated the influence of postoperative pneumonia on the esophageal cancer survival and recurrence after curative surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 122 patients who underwent curative surgery for esophageal cancer between 2008 and 2018. The patients were classified into: i) those with postoperative pneumonia (pneumonia group) and ii) those without postoperative pneumonia (non-pneumonia group). The risk factors for the overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) were identified. The rate of postoperative pneumonia was measured by the revised Uniform Pneumonia Score. RESULTS: Postoperative complications were found in 34 of the 122 patients (27.9%). The OS rate at 5 years following surgery was 28.2% in the pneumonia group and 55.1% in the non-pneumonia group (p=0.006). The RFS rate at 5 years after surgery was 18.9% in the pneumonia group and 49.2% in the non-pneumonia group (p=0.061). A multivariate analysis showed that postoperative pneumonia was a significant independent risk factor for OS. CONCLUSION: The development of postoperative pneumonia was a risk factor for a decreased overall survival in patients who underwent curative surgery for esophageal cancer. The surgical procedure, perioperative care and surgical strategy should be carefully planned in order to avoid postoperative pneumonia.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The tumor, node, metastasis classification system for staging esophageal cancer does not include tumor volume although it may be an important prognostic factor. We evaluated the prognostic value of tumor volume in esophageal cancer. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study in patients with histologically confirmed primary esophageal cancer who underwent curative esophagectomy at our facility between April 1992 and December 2013. The Tumor Depth Parameter (TDP) was defined as mucosa = 1, submucosa = 2, muscularis propria = 3, adventitia = 4, and invasion into adjacent organs = 5. The pathological Tumor Volume Index (TVI) was defined as the major axis × the minor axis × TDP. The appropriate tumor diameter and TVI cutoff values were determined by the Youden index obtained from the receiver operating characteristic curve. Prognostic factors for overall survival were evaluated by univariate analysis and Cox proportional hazards regression models. RESULTS: We enrolled 302 patients. In the univariate analysis, patient age and sex, thoracoscopic surgery, tumor depth of invasion and diameter, lymph node metastasis, and the TVI were significantly associated with overall survival. In our multivariate analysis, patient age and sex, thoracoscopic surgery, lymph node metastasis, and the TVI were independently associated with overall survival. CONCLUSIONS: The pathological TVI was an independent prognostic factor in patients with esophageal carcinoma and could be included in the staging system of esophageal cancer.
