Preoperative Prognostic Nutritional Index Predicts Long-Term Surgical Outcomes in Patients with Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

, Shimane University , 89-1 Enya-cho, Izumo, Shimane 693-8501 , Japan 1 & Noriyuki Hirahara Background The purpose of the present study is to investigate the utility of prognostic nutritional index (PNI) as

A Novel Prognostic Scoring System Using Inflammatory Response Biomarkers for Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

, 89-1 Enya-cho, Izumo, Shimane 693-8501 , Japan 1 & Noriyuki Hirahara Background We describe a novel scoring system, namely the inflammatory response biomarker (IRB) score. The aim of this study is to ... .

Prognostic value of preoperative inflammatory response biomarkers in patients with esophageal cancer who undergo a curative thoracoscopic esophagectomy

Background Several inflammatory response biomarkers, including lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) have been reported to predict survival in various cancers. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical value of these biomarkers in patients undergoing curative resection for esophageal cancer. Methods ...

Prognostic value of hematological parameters in patients undergoing esophagectomy for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma

Background It is now widely recognized that outcomes in cancer patients are not determined by their tumor characteristics alone. In this study, we retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of esophageal cancer patients to evaluate the impact of red blood cell distribution width (RDW), platelet distribution width (PDW), and mean platelet volume (MPV) on cancer-specific survival ...

Significance of prophylactic intra-abdominal drain placement after laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer

Background Unnecessary intra-abdominal drain insertion must be avoided, but little is known about the value of prophylactic drainage following laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG). In this study, we investigated the significance of prophylactic drain placement after LDG for gastric cancer. Methods Seventy-eight consecutive patients with gastric cancer who underwent LDG in our ...

Secure hemostasis in transhiatal esophagectomy for esophageal cancer with gauze packing

Background Transhiatal esophagectomy for esophageal cancer implies blind manipulation of the intrathoracic esophagus. We report a secure hemostatic method with gauze packing in transhiatal esophagectomy. Methods The gauze-packing technique is utilized for hemostasis just after removal of the thoracic esophagus during transhiatal esophagectomy. After confirming cancer-free margins, ...

Reconstruction of the esophagojejunostomy by double stapling method using EEA™ OrVil™ in laparoscopic total gastrectomy and proximal gastrectomy

Here we report the method of anastomosis based on double stapling technique (hereinafter, DST) using a trans-oral anvil delivery system (EEATM OrVilTM) for reconstructing the esophagus and lifted jejunum following laparoscopic total gastrectomy or proximal gastric resection. As a basic technique, laparoscopic total gastrectomy employed Roux-en-Y reconstruction, laparoscopic ...
