INTRODUCTION: The role of routine lymphadenectomy for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is still controversial. The AJCC eighth edition recommends a minimum of six harvested lymph nodes (HLNs) for adequate nodal staging. We sought to define outcome and risk of death among patients who were staged with ≥6 HLNs versus <6 HLNs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients undergoing hepatectomy for ICC between 1990 and 2015 at 1 of the 14 major hepatobiliary centers were identified...

A 33-year-old male has been found with a giant liver hemangioma of initial size 29 cm for 5 years. He received arterial embolization twice in order to shrink the tumor; however, no effect was obtained. The tumor had rapidly grown to 50 cm and caused abnormalities in the hematological and coagulative systems. Preoperative computed tomography revealed that the right hepatic vein, right hepatic artery, and right portal vein were not involved by the hemangioma. Resection of the giant liver hemangioma was successfully performed after intraoperative intentional bloodletting with concurrent blood salvage...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome (ACNES) is a neuropathic abdominal wall pain syndrome typically characterized by locally altered skin sensations. On the other hand, visceral disease may also be associated with similar painful and altered skin sensations ("Head zones"). Aim of the study was to determine if patients with acute appendicitis demonstrated somatosensory disturbances in the corresponding right lower quadrant Head zone. METHODS: The presence of somatosensory disturbances such as hyperalgesia, hypoesthesia, altered cool perception, or positive pinch test was determined in 100 patients before and after an appendectomy...

Shenghua Hao, Shaofei Chen, Caixue Tu, Taotao Huang
BACKGROUND: It is supposed that the improvement of prognosis in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patient by anterior approach for liver resection was related to the decreasing hematogenic dissemination of circulating cancer cells. METHODS: The EpCAM(+) circulating tumor cells (CTCs) were detected in HCC patients having liver resection with either anterior approach (AA) or conventional approach (CA). The relation of CTCs to the 2-year recurrence and survival after surgery was investigated...

BACKGROUND: In the portal vein resection of long distance, an interposition by autologous vein is mandatory. External iliac vein (EIV) has been used, but harvesting the EIV is associated with severe venous congestion of the affected lower extremity. We have reconstructed the EIV using a ringed expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) graft. METHODS: Thirteen patients underwent this surgery. The right EIV was used for reconstructing the portal vein, and the retrieved portion of EIV was interposed by the ePTFE graft...

BACKGROUND: Around 10-15% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease will develop Barrett's esophagus (BE). The development of novel endoscopic modalities has changed the management of BE in the last decade. AIM: The aim of this study was to review the current evidence for the treatment of BE with and without dysplasia. RESULTS: In patients with BE without dysplasia, antireflux surgery should not be suggested as a modality to prevent the malignant transformation of BE, but its indications should be the same as for other patients with gastroesophageal reflux...
