Laparoscopy-assisted resection of an undiagnosed liver tumor and ascending colon cancer via mini median laparotomy: Report of a case.
Summary of "Laparoscopy-assisted resection of an undiagnosed liver tumor and ascending colon cancer via mini median laparotomy: Report of a case."
We describe how we resected a hepatic angiomyolipoma and ascending colon cancer synchronously via laparoscopic left lateral segmentectomy and laparoscopic right colectomy, respectively. The patient was a 72-year-old man, admitted to our hospital after a liver tumor and ascending colon cancer were detected during a general health check. Computed tomography (CT) showed a hypervascular liver tumor mimicking hepatocellular carcinoma, 2 cm in diameter, in segment 3 of the liver. The ascending colon cancer was diagnosed as T2N0M0, Stage I. The left lateral liver and right colon were mobilized laparoscopically and hepatic transaction, followed by resection and anastomosis of the colon, were performed extracorporeally through the same 7-cm upper median incision. This type of laparoscopyassisted combined resection is useful to obtain a pathological diagnosis of the liver tumor and to remove the entire tumor in a minimally invasive and cosmetic manner.

The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the RECTUM. It includes the ASCENDING COLON; the TRANSVERSE COLON; the DESCENDING COLON; and the SIGMOID COLON.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the TRANSVERSE COLON. It passes cephalad from the cecum to the caudal surface of the right lobe of the LIVER where it bends sharply to the left, forming the right colic flexure.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between ASCENDING COLON and DESCENDING COLON. It passes from the RIGHT COLIC FLEXURE across the ABDOMEN, then turns sharply at the left colonic flexure into the descending colon.
Placement of one of the surgeon's gloved hands into the ABDOMINAL CAVITY to perform manual manipulations that facilitate the laparoscopic procedures.
A procedure in which a laparoscope (LAPAROSCOPES) is inserted through a small incision near the navel to examine the abdominal and pelvic organs in the PERITONEAL CAVITY. If appropriate, biopsy or surgery can be performed during laparoscopy.

BACKGROUND: Although the utility of laparoscopic liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been recognized in recent years, the impact of the laparoscopic liver resection for HCC with com...
INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopy is an accepted treatment for colorectal cancer and liver metastases, but there is no consensus for its use in the management of synchronous liver metastases (SCRLM). The purp...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the oncological feasibility of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy with D2 lymph node dissection for advanced gastric cancer.
The main goal of this study is to clarify if laparoscopy (LPS) could become the standard approach in patients undergoing left colonic resection. 268 patient candidates to left colonic res...
Rationale: For the treatment of early gastric cancer (EGC) in the distal portion of the stomach, subtotal gastrectomy and lymph node dissection has been a standard operation. With the incr...
The purpose of this study is to compare the short- and long-term results between the laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy and the open gastrectomy.
