Hide Abstract
In October 2008, a 66-year-old male patient underwent resection of the right half of the colon for ascending colon cancer. Histopathological examination revealed a tumor classification of tub2, pSE, ly1, v0, PM0, DM0, RM0, pN1(2/23), H0 , P0 , Stage III a. The patient was treated with uracil/tegafur plus Leucovorin(UFT/LV)chemotherapy after surgery. However, he developed Grade 2 liver dysfunction after completion of 1 course, so UFT/LV was discontinued. In June 2009, a rise in the carcinoembryonic antigen(CEA)level was observed, and computed tomography(CT)and positron emission tomography with 2-[fluorine-18]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose(FDG-PET)showed a single enlarged lymph node, 2 cm in diameter, located around the aorta. We informed the patient of the therapeutic effect of anticancer drug treatment and surgery, risk of adverse events, and other management methods, and UFT/LV chemotherapy was selected as treatment. After 3 courses, the lymph node had completely disappeared, and UFT/LV was discontinued in April 2011, as there was no sign of recurrence. The patient remains alive and well. We report a case of para-aortic lymph node metastasis after surgery, treated with UFT/LV, which led to a complete response without major adverse events.

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery using colon-lifting technique for colorectal cancer: a matched case-control comparison with standard multiport laparoscopic surgery in terms of short-term results and access instrument cost.

Hide Abstract
Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) has been used for colorectal cancer as a minimally invasive procedure. However, there are still difficulties concerning effective triangulation and countertraction. The studys purpose was to clarify the usefulness of the colon-lifting technique (CLT) in SILS for colorectal cancer.

Hide Abstract
Intravenous chemotherapy with a combination of several drugs is commonly used to treat metastatic colorectal cancer. However, the associated adverse events can be severe. Here we report a rare case of metastatic rectal cancer in an elderly patient who got complete response for metastatic rectal cancer with oral uracil-tegafur plus leucovorin therapy.

A multicenter randomized study is high quality, but it is also true that there are differences between institutions. The quality of treatment is consistent in a single center so comparisons in a retrospective study can be matched for many variables.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumor with two genetic abnormalities on different alleles: report of a case.

Hide Abstract
We report a case of a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) with strong and faint KIT protein staining, respectively, at two different sites. A single point mutation (c1727 T>C) was detected in DNA extracted from both sites, and a further deletion mutation (c1678_1680 del GTT) was detected in DNA from the site with strong KIT protein staining. Cloning analysis indicated that the point mutation and the deletion were present on different alleles.

Hide Abstract
This study examines the efficacy of a bioresorbable sodium hyaluronate-carboxy-methylcellulose-based membrane (HA/CMC membrane) in reducing postoperative abdominal adhesion and ileus after intestinal resection. Also, this study attempts to identify the possible factors that influence effectiveness through qualitative analysis of an individual patient case.

Allergic reactions to oxaliplatin in a single institute in Japan.
Jpn. J. Clin. Oncol.
PUBLISHED: 06-25-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Allergic reactions to oxaliplatin can be severe and are an important cause of discontinuation of treatment. A retrospective review was performed for 105 patients who received FOLFOX regimens between May 2005 and June 2007. Twenty-five cases (23.8%) of allergic reactions were identified, including 9 late onset reactions (8.6%) and 16 immediate reactions (15.2%). Severe allergy (Grades 3 and 4) occurred in seven patients (6.7%). Re-introduction of FOLFOX was attempted for seven immediate onset patients with a severity grade of 1 or 2, and three of these patients (42.9%) showed relapse of allergy. In approximately 10% of the patients, FOLFOX had to be discontinued due to allergy before the disease became refractory to the regimen. Our experience indicates that allergy to oxaliplatin may be a significant concern and that methods are required for suppression of this allergy.

Many studies have focused on laparoscopic techniques for the treatment of colon cancer, but such work is more limited for the treatment of rectal cancer, largely because of concerns for safety issues. This report presents an effective method of anal lavage and excision in laparoscopic low anterior resection.

Laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery by a colon lifting-up technique that decreases the number of access ports: comparison by propensity scoring of short-term and long-term outcomes with standard multiport laparoscopic surgery.
Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Laparoscopic colectomy for colorectal cancer has become established as a minimally invasive surgical approach. However, many disposable instruments are required, and there is an associated disadvantage of cost. We have developed a new technique, which uses a suture string to lift up the colon. This method is expected to reduce the number of access ports required without compromising the radical cure. OPERATIVE PROCEDURE: A suture string piercing the abdominal wall is passed through the mesocolon. The colon is retracted anteriorly and is fixed at the abdominal wall. The main mesenteric vessels are under tension, and lymph node dissection is performed easily by a medial approach. The working space is more stable because the colon is fixed to the abdominal wall.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
