Background Shanghai fever is a rare community-acquired enteric illness with sepsis caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa . Cases of Shanghai fever in pediatric patients have been reported; however, to the best of our knowledge, there are no reports of adult cases. Case presentation A 65-year-old man visited the emergency department with sudden onset of...

Background: Experimental studies suggest that self-expanding metal stents (SEMSs) enhance the aggressive behavior of obstructive colorectal cancer. The influence of SEMS placement on pathological alterations remains to be elucidated. Aim: To determine whether SEMS placement is associated with molecular or pathological features of colorectal carc...

Background Seroma/hematoma formation is the most common postoperative complication after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. The occurrence of seroma/hematoma remains unclear. The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors for seroma/hematoma formation after transabdominal preperitoneal patch plasty (TAPP).Methods The study enrolled 359 g...

Background Visceral artery aneurysms are rare, but they may cause heavy bleeding and high mortality. In addition, aneurysms originating from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) account for only 1% of visceral artery aneurysms. We report the rare case of a ruptured transverse pancreatic artery aneurysm originating from the SMA that required urgent...

Endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) is a rare mesenchymal tumor of the uterus that accounts for 7–25% of uterine sarcomas and < 1% of uterine tumors. Previously reported sites include the ovary, bowel wall, abdomen, peritoneum, pelvis, and vagina; however, ESS in the extrauterine area is rare. We report a rare case of endometrial stromal sarcoma that...
Article
Background With aging of the population, the number of colorectal cancer patients with impairment of activities of daily living (ADLs) has increased. The Barthel index is a validated tool for assessing functional levels of ADLs. In this retrospective study, we aimed to examine associations of Barthel index scores with recurrence and mortality after...
Article
Background/aim: Emergency surgery for colorectal cancer (CRC) is a high-risk procedure with high morbidity and mortality rates, especially for older patients. The relationship between patient age status and long-term outcomes is unclear. We hypothesize that patient age might be associated with long-term outcomes in patients with CRC who undergo em...
Article
Background The number of frail patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) has increased. Despite evidence-based treatment guidelines, a large proportion of patients with resected CRC do not receive adjuvant chemotherapy in daily practice. This retrospective study aimed to examine the effect of adjuvant chemotherapy for CRC according to frailty.Methods W...

Introduction Liposarcomas comprise around 10%-16% of soft tissue sarcomas. The two major sites of liposarcoma are the extremities and retroperitoneum. However, retroperitoneal liposarcomas mimicking inguinal hernia are rare. We present a case of retroperitoneal liposarcoma mimicking inguinal hernia, which was diagnosed after laparoscopic surgery an...

Aim With population aging, the number of frail patients with colorectal cancer has increased. The Clinical Frailty Scale (CFS) is a validated tool for assessing frailty, and higher scores indicate worse clinical outcomes following cardiovascular procedures. This retrospective study aimed to examine preoperative frailty in relation to recurrence and...
Article
Background/aim: The number of older patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) is increasing. Stage II CRC is a heterogeneous group of cancers with different prognoses. We aimed to examine older patients in relation to clinical outcome following curative resection in stage II CRC. Patients and methods: We analyzed data for 329 consecutive patients wi...
Article
Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of interval laparoscopic appendectomy after antibiotic therapy in elderly patients with appendiceal abscess. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed data for 50 patients with appendiceal abscess aged ≥18 years who had initially planned to undergo interval laparoscopic appen...

Background The gastrointestinal tract can occasionally be perforated or penetrated by an ingested foreign body, such as a fish bone. However, there are very few reported cases in which an ingested fish bone penetrated the gastrointestinal tract and was embedded in the pancreas. Case presentation An 80-year-old male presented with epigastric pain....

... The lifetime risk of Inguinal hernia in men is 27% [8] and more than 20 million patients undergo groin hernia repair annually worldwide [1] Laparoscopic hernia repair can be performed either by a Transabdominal PrePeritoneal approach (TAPP) or Total ExtraPeritoneal (TEP) approach [2]. In terms of recurrence, postoperative pain and complications, both techniques show similar results [9]. ...
... Although most recurrences occur within the pelvis, distant metastases can occur. According to previous reports, the main extrauterine sites of ESS include the ovaries, bowel wall, peritoneum, sigmoid colon, pelvis, urinary bladder and vagina (8,(10)(11)(12). After initial appearance it can recur or metastasize many years later and the risk of recurrence is 10-20% (1). ...
... Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in both men and women worldwide [1]. Despite remarkable advances in conventional multidisciplinary therapies for colorectal cancer, including surgery [2], radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy, improvements in clinical outcomes have been limited. Further developments of innovative treatment strategies are aggressively being sought, especially for colorectal cancer with complications, such as obstruction, perforation, and hemorrhage [3]. ...
... Recently, retrospective studies have confirmed the survival advantages of AC in elderly CRC patients. 13,14 However, the reason for not introducing AC is unclear, and there is insufficient information on the differences in prognosis between patients with completed and incomplete AC. ...
... Os lipossarcomas retroperitoneais, que se estendem até o canal inguinal, por vezes atingindo o saco escrotal, podem se apresentar como uma hérnia inguinal indireta. Sendo assim, as hérnias estão entre os principais diagnósticos diferenciais, e muitas vezes, essas neoplasias são descobertas acidentalmente durante cirurgias de herniorrafia (MATSUMOTO et al., 2020). ...
... This study had several limitations. Many factors, including complications after surgery [18], physical status [19], and inflammatory and nutritional status [20], were previously reported to be associated with survival after surgery. However, this database was not incorporated in these data. ...
... The worse survival outcomes of older patients with stage II-III CRC are believed to be correlated with their higher levels of comorbidity, pre-existing conditions, and less frequent administration of adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy [26,[46][47][48]. To further explore the distinct biological behaviors correlated with the aging process, we compared clinicopathological features between younger and older patients with stage II-III CRC. ...
... The incidence of interval appendectomy may be increased due to the increase in cases of complicated appendicitis resulting from delayed time from symptom onset to ER visit. According to previous studies, interval appendectomy was not inferior to the initial surgical approach in terms of reducing postoperative morbidity (16,32). Although the initial surgical approach was still preferred in South Korea, interval appendectomy increased as the proportion of complicated appendicitis cases increased during the pandemic. ...
... Foreign bodies reaching the pancreas can cause abscess, pseudoaneurysm, pancreatitis, and high-mortality-risk complications (3)(4)(5)(6). It is important to diagnose gastrointestinal foreign bodies promptly and intervene early to prevent morbidity and mortality (10,11). It is often difficult to diagnose these patients since they cannot remember swallowing foreign bodies accidentally. ...
