Pancreatic cancer is extremely malignant, with a low sensibility to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and a poor prognosis. Surgical treatment is very important for pancreatic cancer. Laparos...
The purpose of this study is to clarify whether resecting pylorus-ring decreases delayed gastric emptying after pancreaticoduodenectomy and improves postoperative quality of life (QOL).
This study is performed to confirm whether resection of the nerve plexus on the right half of celiac and SMA associated with extended pancreatoduodenectomy could improve survival and relie...
The aim of this study is to determine whether the performance of extended lymphadenectomy in association with pancreatoduodenectomy improves the long-term survival in patients with pancrea...
This study was designed to test the hypothesis that more extensive nodal and soft-tissue clearance in patients with adenocarcinoma of the head of the pancreas would improve survival withou...
To maintain the blood circulation of the gastric tube in pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy (PPPD) for periampullary cancer after esophagectomy for esophageal cancer, it is necessary to preserve...
Blood flow of the remnant stomach is supplied via the right gastric and right gastroepiploic vessels after proximal gastrectomy (PG). Whether the remnant stomach can be safely preserved in patients wh...
Laparoscopic pancreatoduodenectomy may improve postoperative recovery compared with open pancreatoduodenectomy. However, there are concerns that the extensive learning curve of this complex procedure ...
Pancreatic fistula is one of the most serious complications after pancreatoduodenectomy for treating any lesions at the pancreatic head. For years, surgeons have tried various methods to reduce its in...
Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.
Lining of the STOMACH, consisting of an inner EPITHELIUM, a middle LAMINA PROPRIA, and an outer MUSCULARIS MUCOSAE. The surface cells produce MUCUS that protects the stomach from attack by digestive acid and enzymes. When the epithelium invaginates into the LAMINA PROPRIA at various region of the stomach (CARDIA; GASTRIC FUNDUS; and PYLORUS), different tubular gastric glands are formed. These glands consist of cells that secrete mucus, enzymes, HYDROCHLORIC ACID, or hormones.
Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
A distinct vascular lesion in the PYLORIC ANTRUM that is characterized by tortuous dilated blood vessels (ectasia) radiating outward from the PYLORUS. The vessel pattern resembles the stripes on the surface of a watermelon. This lesion causes both acute and chronic GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE.
Chronic delayed gastric emptying. Gastroparesis may be caused by motor dysfunction or paralysis of STOMACH muscles or may be associated with other systemic diseases such as DIABETES MELLITUS.
