Evaluation of the result of single-incision laparoscopic surgery for gastrointestinal stromal tumors in the stomach

BackgroundSingle-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) has recently been used for the management of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). Here, the feasibility and effectiveness of SILS for GIST and indications for SILS according to tumor location were investigated.Case presentationFrom July 2009 to May to 2013, a total of 14 patients underwent SILS for GIST. In 14 patients, 5...

Vital-SCOPE: Design and Evaluation of a Smart Vital Sign Monitor for Simultaneous Measurement of Pulse Rate, Respiratory Rate, and Body Temperature for Patient Monitoring

Consistent vital sign monitoring is critically important for early detection of clinical deterioration of patients in hospital settings. Mostly, nurses routinely measure and document the primary vital signs of all patients 2‐3 times daily to assess their condition. To reduce nurse workload and thereby improve quality of patient care, a smart vital sign monitor named “Vital‐SCOPE...

Radical Lymph Node Dissection Along the Proximal Splenic Artery During Laparoscopic Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer Using the Left Lateral Approach

BackgroundRecent technical improvements allow safe laparoscopic lymph node dissection (LND) in gastric cancer.1 , 2 In suprapancreatic LND, careful LND around the celiac artery (CA) is essential. From a patient’s right side, deep LND is performed around the right side of the CA after dissecting around the common hepatic artery (CHA). For LND around the left side of the CA on the...

Temperature during conidiation affects stress tolerance, pigmentation, and trypacidin accumulation in the conidia of the airborne pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus

Asexual spores (conidia) are reproductive structures that play a crucial role in fungal distribution and survival. As fungal conidia are, in most cases, etiological agents of plant diseases and fungal lung disease, their stress resistance and interaction with their hosts have drawn increasing attention. In the present study, we investigated whether environmental temperature...

Tooth Size Variation in Pinniped Dentitions

It is contentious whether size variation among mammalian teeth is heterogeneous or homogeneous, whether the coefficient of variation is reliable, and whether the standard deviation of log-transformed data and the residual of standard deviation on mean variable size are useful replacements for the coefficient of variation. Most studies of tooth size variation have been on mammals...

Successful resection of giant esophageal liposarcoma by endoscopic submucosal dissection combined with surgical retrieval: a case report and literature review

Liposarcoma of the esophagus is very rare. We experienced a huge (27.5 × 11.6 cm) liposarcoma of the esophagus. A 73-year-old man presented with severe dyspnea requiring emergency tracheal intubation. Computed tomography and esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a large submucosal tumor arising from the esophageal entrance and extending intraluminally to the lower esophagus. We...

The learning effect of using stereoscopic vision in the early phase of laparoscopic surgical training for novices

Background Recently to improve depth perception, the performance of three-dimensional (3D) laparoscopic surgeries has increased. However, the effects of laparoscopic training using 3D are still unclear. This study aimed to clarify the effects of using a 3D monitor among novices in the early phase of training. Methods Participants were 40 novices who had never performed...

Pulmonary Arterial Capacitance Predicts Cardiac Events in Pulmonary Hypertension Due to Left Heart Disease

Background Although pulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease (LHD-PH) accounts for the largest proportion of pulmonary hypertension, few reports on the epidemiological analysis of LHD-PH exist. Recently, pulmonary arterial capacitance (PAC) has attracted attention as a possible factor of right ventricular afterload along with pulmonary vascular resistance. We therefore...

Ultrasonic shears assistance can shorten the console time in robotic gastrectomy for early gastric cancer

Background Robotic gastric surgery has been introduced and is being performed in many Japanese facilities. There are some limitations of devices capable to be used in the robotic arms in the da Vinci Surgical System. We have reviewed our first ten cases with early gastric cancer who underwent robot-assisted gastrectomy and have compared the operative time between cases who...

A pilot feasibility, safety and biological efficacy multicentre trial of therapeutic hypercapnia after cardiac arrest: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Background Cardiac arrest causes ischaemic brain injury. Arterial carbon dioxide tension (PaCO2) is a major determinant of cerebral blood flow. Thus, mild hypercapnia in the 24 h following cardiac arrest may increase cerebral blood flow and attenuate such injury. We describe the Carbon Control and Cardiac Arrest (CCC) trial. Methods/Design The CCC trial is a pilot multicentre...

Study on grouser mechanism to directly detect sinkage of wheel during traversing loose soil for lunar exploration rovers

The rovers, which some researchers and agencies are developing, have many functions to sense a lot of information from peculiar environments like the lunar surface for localization, path planning and so on. On rough terrain, without artificial ground maintenance, like the lunar surface, the rovers avoid obstacles by using sensors, which they have. However, if the rovers traverse...
