  • Gastropyeloplasty: An Alternative Procedure in Reconstruction of the Renal Pelvis
    The Journal of urology, 1995
    Co-Authors: Damiano Turini, Gabriele Barbanti, Patrizia Beneforti, Massimo Lazzeri
    Abstract:

    ABSTRACTWe report our first experience with the use of a small gastric patch for reconstruction of the renal pelvis. We performed left gastropyeloplasty based on the right gastroepiploic artery in 1 patient suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections and renal stones, and moderate renal failure. The use of a gastric patch for reconstruction of the renal pelvis prevented the recurrence of calculi and bacterial infections, and produced an improvement in renal function. We confirm the feasibility of the use of a small gastric patch in reconstruction of the renal pelvis and we argue that there are several possible ways to use stomach in upper urinary tract reconstruction.

  • Wedge Resection as an Alternative Procedure for Primary Pulmonary Carcinoma in Poor-risk Patients
    Kyobu geka. The Japanese journal of thoracic surgery, 2019
    Co-Authors: Mitsuhiro Kamiyoshihara, Hitoshi Igai, Ryohei Yoshikawa, Fumi Ohsawa, Tomohiro Yazawa, Kimihiro Shimizu, Akira Mogi, Ken Shirabe
    Abstract:

    We present wedge reseresection as an Alternative Procedure for primary pulmonary carcinoma in poor-risk patients. We examined the overall survival of 94 patients who underwent wedge reseresection for pN0M0 primary pulmonary carcinoma over the last 20 years because of their intolerance of lobectomy. In the wedge reseresection group, the postoperative 5-year survival in all causes of death was 59.6%, indicating significantly better prognoses in patients with adenocarcinoma aged less than 75 years old. The 5-year survival in the lobectomy group was 77.5%, while the 5-year survival in terms of primary causes of death in the wedge reseresection and lobectomy groups was 89.3% and 88.0%, respectively. There was a significant difference between wedge reseresection and lobectomy in all causes of death, but not between groups in primary causes of death. Because there were many non-primary deaths in the wedge reseresection group, care should be taken to follow comorbidities that cause limited lung resection. Survival in the wedge reseresection group was not inferior to that in the lobectomy group in analyses of the primary causes of death. We suggest that wedge reseresection should be a favorable Procedure for primary pulmonary carcinoma in poor-risk patients to obtain a large enough sample volume of tumor cells.

  • Evaluation of Two Palate Repair Techniques for the Surgical Management of Velopharyngeal Insufficiency
    Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 2014
    Co-Authors: Albert S. Woo, Gary B. Skolnick, Neil S. Sachanandani, Lynn Marty Grames
    Abstract:

    Background:The Furlow palatoplasty is commonly used for the correction of velopharyngeal insufficiency in cleft patients. An Alternative Procedure is introduced involving a single Z-plasty with overlapping intravelar veloplasty (Woo palatoplasty). This study compared the results of both techniques i
