Laparoscopy-assisted proximal gastrectomy (LAPG) with esophagogastrostomy using the double-flap technique has been reported to rarely cause gastroesophageal reflux. However, quantitative evaluation of the reflux has hardly been performed. The aim of this study was to clarify the superiority of the double-flap technique of LAPG with esophagogastrostomy compared with the OrVil technique in terms of preventing gastroesophageal reflux.

One-stage reconstruction by dual-innervated double muscle flap transplantation with the neural interconnection between the ipsilateral masseter and contralateral facial nerve for reanimating established facial paralysis: A report of 2 cases.
The authors developed a one-stage double-muscle reconstruction technique for facial paralysis using a latissimus dorsi (LD) flap and a serratus anterior (SA) flap, which were dually reinnervated by th...
This study analyzes postoperative course of different immediate breast reconstruction techniques: deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP), gracilis, latissimus dorsi flap, expander implants an...
Stenosis after esophagojejunostomy with the hemi-double-stapling technique using the transorally inserted anvil (OrVil™) in Roux-en-Y reconstruction with its efferent loop located on the patient's left side following laparoscopic total gastrectomy.
The drawback of intracorporeal esophagojejunostomy with the double-stapling technique (DST) using a transorally inserted anvil (OrVil™, Covidien, Mansfield, MA, USA) following laparoscopic total gas...
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) has been previously used for postoperative flap thinning. Although it had been reported that UAL causes less damage to the vessels, the simultaneous use of UAL wi...
Analgesic efficacy and pharmacokinetics of epidural oxycodone in pain management after gynaecologic laparoscopy - a randomised, double blind, active control, double-dummy clinical comparison with intravenous administration.
Early pain after laparoscopy is often severe. Oxycodone is a feasible analgesic option after laparoscopy, but there are sparse data on epidural administration. The aim was to evaluate the analgesic ef...
The purpose of this study is to examine the different outcomes of breast reconstruction in women who are treated for breast cancer with mastectomy and subsequently have delayed breast reco...
The purpose of this study is to compare the short- and long-term results between the laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy and the open gastrectomy.
This study is to compare the short-term and long-term outcomes of traditional laparoscopy-assisted surgery and total laparoscopic surgery with no incision (natural orifice transluminal end...
Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) is a reliable method to augment insufficient bone volume for implant placement. Membrane exposure is a major complication which is avoided by tension free pr...
The purpose of this research study is to collect data on the technical aspects of Lasparoscopy-assisted ERCP and patient outcomes to help guide future medical care of patients with Roux-en...
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
Methods pertaining to the generation of new individuals, including techniques used in selective BREEDING, cloning (CLONING, ORGANISM), and assisted reproduction (REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, ASSISTED).
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.
