[헬스코리아뉴스 / 박원진] The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital, has been recognized for its excellence in the most difficult surgery and patient management before and after surgery.

Prof. Cheol-Seung Lee (corresponding author Yoon-Seok Lee) of the Department of Colorectal and Anal Surgery said at the International Asian Surgical Ultrasound Society (ASUS) held at the end of last year,’The clinical effect of ultrasound-guided laparoscopic TAP block in minimally invasive colorectal cancer surgery (Ultrasound guided intraoperative laparoscopic TAP block). Following colorectal minimal invasive surgery), a poster was presented to present the clinical effect of the laparoscopic TAP block (Transversus abdominis plane block) during surgery to effectively reduce postoperative pain in colorectal cancer patients. Won the Best Poster Award.

In this study, the ERAS (Enhanced Recovery after Surgery) program and the pain control program were combined to speed up the recovery of cancer patients after surgery, and it was recognized as the best poster for improving patient satisfaction by reducing pain without complications.

The ERAS program is a program that helps patients who need colon cancer surgery to recover quickly by minimizing pre- and post-operative stress and preventing complications by maintaining physical improvement. It was designed by surgeons, anesthesia and pain medicine doctors, nurses, nutritionists, pharmacists, and exercise therapists.

The biggest feature of the program is that the patient does not need to fast. Two hours before colon cancer surgery, patients take a carbohydrate supplement. Nutritional beverages containing protein, minerals, and omega 3 promote the normalization of the composition of bacteria in the intestines that are out of balance after cleaning (enema). In general, fasting before colon cancer surgery is known as a must go through, but it reduces the patient’s discomfort by shortening the fasting time as much as possible and helps quick recovery after surgery.

Last year, the Asian Society of Venous and Enteral Nutrition (PENSA) announced that the ERAS program affects not only the clinical results of early discharge and complications, but also the reduction of inflammatory response after surgery and the increase of immunity.

Professor Bae Bae (corresponding author In-Gyu Lee) said at the 2021 International Conference of the Korean Society of Surgical Ambassadorial Nutrition in March,’Implementation and Improvement of the ERAS Program After Colorectal Cancer Surgery: How to do ERAS, a key factor in improving clinical outcomes. Implementation and improvement of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) in colorectal cancer patients: ERAS compliance is the key of improvement of clinical outcomes).

This introduces the matters to be prepared before implementing ERAS for the first time, and spreads the know-how unique to the colon and anus surgeon at Seoul St. Its significance can be found in that it has been proved.

Prof. In-Gyu Lee is the best in rectal cancer surgery through a multimedia paper titled’Robotic Lateral Pelvic Lymph Node Dissection: Description of A Technique-IK Lee et al, 2021′ in the journal’Journal of Minimally Invasive Surgery’ published by the Korean Society of Endoscopic Laparoscopy. It has been recognized for its excellence in terms of the robotic surgical method of lateral lymphectomy, which corresponds to the difficulty level. Thanks to that, it was selected as the best journal at the 2021 International Society of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgery held on April 22 this year and won the Best Paper Award.

Professor Lee In-gyu, head of the Department of Colorectal and Anus Surgery, said, “The Department of Colorectal and Anus Surgery at Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital is leading the way as the best direct colorectal cancer treatment hospital through many fruits such as direct colorectal cancer surgery through various methods, patient pain control, and improved patient compliance with the ERAS program.” He said, “As a leading institution in the domestic ERAS program, we expect to continue to play a leadership role in the academic field as well as improving clinical results.”
