Segmental resection of the duodenum including the papilla of Vater for focal cancer in adenoma

M RyuM H Cho


Adenoma of the papilla of Vater is a premalignant lesion frequently associated with focal cancer. This adenoma has been treated by a variety of methods, and a consensus for its standard treatment has not been reached. A method of resection which is safe and reliable is desired. The distal part of duodenum and pancreas were separated. The pancreatic and bile ducts were exposed outside the pancreas and duodenum, respectively, and transected. Segmental resection of the distal part of the duodenum including the papilla of Vater was performed. The jejunum was elevated and anastomosed with the duodenum, bile duct, and pancreatic duct. The resection was safely performed on two patients with focal cancer in adenoma. Delayed gastric emptying which continued for 2 to 3 weeks, occurred in both patients. Postoperatively, the patients resumed a normal life and weigh the same as before surgery. Segmental resection of the duodenum including the papilla of Vater is a safe and effective treatment method for adenoma of the papilla of Vater, a premalignant neoplasm that is frequently associated with cancer.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
