Ascending Colon Cancer with Pathologically Confirmed Tumor Thrombosis of Superior Mesenteric Vein: A Case Report
Sung Eun Kim, Sang Jin Lee, Jun Young Cha, Sang Won Yi, Tae Sun Kim, Il Leon Cho, Jae Young Kwak, Kwang Hoon Oh
Clin Endosc 2019;52(5):506-509.   Published online April 17, 2019
AbstractAbstract PDFPubReaderePub
Colon cancer is very rarely accompanied by tumor thrombosis of the superior mesenteric vein (SMV). A 46-year-old patient had been diagnosed with SMV tumor thrombosis related to colon cancer without hepatic metastasis and underwent right hemicolectomy with SMV tumor thrombectomy. Tumor thrombosis was pathologically confirmed as metastatic colon cancer. There has been no recurrence for 12 months with 12 cycles of adjuvant-chemotherapy.

Mucosal Incision and Forceps Biopsy for Reliable Tissue Sampling of Gastric Subepithelial Tumors
Sa Young Shin, Sang Jin Lee, Jae Hyuck Jun, Jong Kyu Park, Hyun Il Seo, Koon Hee Han, Young Don Kim, Woo Jin Jeong, Gab Jin Cheon
Clin Endosc 2017;50(1):64-68.   Published online March 4, 2016
AbstractAbstract PDFPubReaderePub
/Aims: The diagnostic efficacy of current tissue sampling techniques for gastric subepithelial tumors (SETs) is limited. Better tissue sampling techniques are needed to improve pathological diagnosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a new technique, mucosal incision and forceps biopsy, for reliable tissue sampling of gastric SETs.
This study enrolled 12 consecutive patients who underwent mucosal incision and forceps biopsy of gastric SETs between November 2011 and September 2014 at Gangneung Asan Hospital. The medical records of patients were reviewed retrospectively. The safety and diagnostic yield of this method were evaluated.
By performing mucosal incision and forceps biopsy, we were able to provide a definitive histological diagnosis for 11 out of 12 cases. The pathological diagnoses were leiomyoma (3/11), gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST; 2/11), lipoma (2/11), schwannoma (1/11), and ectopic pancreas (3/11). In cases of leiomyoma (n=3) and GIST (n=2), tissue samples were of sufficient size to allow immunohistochemical staining. In addition, the mitotic index was evaluated in two cases of GIST. There were no procedure-related complications.
Mucosal incision and forceps biopsy can be used as one of several methods to obtain adequate tissue samples from gastric SETs.

Liver Metastasis of Early Gastric Cancer with Mixed Histology after Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection
Yang Hee Han, Jong Kyu Park, Jun Sung Kwon, Young Don Kim, Woo Jin Jeong, Sang Jin Lee, Koon Hee Han, Gab Jin Cheon
Clin Endosc 2015;48(3):247-250.   Published online May 29, 2015
AbstractAbstract PDFPubReaderePub

The Japanese Classification of Gastric Carcinoma histologically classifies endoscopically resected gastric cancer into differentiated and undifferentiated types according to the presence or absence of tubular structures on histology. The former includes papillary adenocarcinoma and tubular types, and the latter includes poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, signet ring cell carcinoma and mucinous adenocarcinoma. However, gastric cancer sometimes contains a mixture of differentiated and undifferentiated components, and the clinical outcomes of the histological mixture are unknown, especially following endoscopic resection of early gastric cancer (EGC). This case was within the guideline indications for endoscopic submucosal resection (ESD), although it contained a partly signet ring cell carcinoma component; it recurred after 19 months with multiple lymph node and liver metastases. This case shows that additional surgical resection after ESD should be performed for patients with any mixed signet ring cell component, even in mild or moderately differentiated EGC.

A Case of Gastric Inverted Hyperplastic Polyp Found with Gastritis Cystica Profunda and Early Gastric Cancer
Sang Jin Lee, Jong Kyu Park, Hyun Il Seo, Koon Hee Han, Young Don Kim, Woo Jin Jeong, Gab Jin Cheon, Dae-Woon Eom
Clin Endosc 2013;46(5):568-571.   Published online September 30, 2013
AbstractAbstract PDFPubReaderePub

A gastric inverted hyperplastic polyp is a rare type of gastric polyp and is characterized by downward growth of a variety of mucosal components into the submucosa. The polyp consists of columnar cells resembling foveolar epithelium and pyloric gland epithelium and can coexist with gastritis cystica profunda. Frequently, adenocarcinoma can coexist, but the relation is not clear. A 77-year-old male underwent endoscopic submucosal dissection due to early gastric cancer. A gastric inverted hyperplastic polyp was found in the removed specimen and gastric cystica profunda was also found. We report a case of gastric inverted hyperplastic polyp coexisting with gastric cystica profunda and gastric adenocarcinoma.

Short-term Clinical Outcomes Based on Risk Factors of Recurrence after Removing Common Bile Duct Stones with Endoscopic Papillary Large Balloon Dilatation
Jung Ho Kim, Yeon Suk Kim, Dong Kyu Kim, Min Su Ha, Young Jun Lee, Jong Joon Lee, Sang Jin Lee, In Sik Won, Yang Suh Ku, Yun Soo Kim, Ju Hyun Kim
Clin Endosc 2011;44(2):123-128.   Published online December 31, 2011
AbstractAbstract PDFPubReaderePub

Recurrence is an important late complication of endotherapy of bile duct stones. Endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation (EPLBD) can be used as an alternative method of removing difficult bile duct stones. The aim of this study was to evaluate short term clinical outcomes after removing common bile duct (CBD) stones using EPLBD.


A retrospective review was performed based on the medical records of 141 patients who received EPLBD, with or without endoscopic sphincterotomy, between September 2008 and February 2010. Of these, 50 patients, were enrolled in the study. Clinical and endoscopic parameters were analyzed to identify risk factors for CBD stones recurrence.


Male:Female ratio was 22:28 (mean age, 67.4±14.4 years). Recurrence rate was 24.0% (12/50). Mean follow-up period was 10.8±4.5 months. Nineteen (38.0%) had a history of surgery and 20 (40.0%) were comorbid with periampullary diverticula. Mean diameters of the stones and CBD were 13.8±4.3 mm and 20.1±7.2 mm, respectively. In univariate analysis, large CBD stones (≥12 mm) and angulated CBD (angle ≤145°) were identified as the significant predictors of recurrence. In multivariate analysis, angulated CBD (angle ≤145°) was the significant independent risk factor for recurrence.


Close follow-up seems necessary in patients with angulated CBD (angle ≤145°).
