INTRODUCTION: Pancreatic head ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and inflammatory head masses (IHM) related to chronic pancreatitis are often difficult to differentiate. PDAC produces significant inflammatory response with resultant lymphopenia and thrombocytosis. The prognostic role of platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) as a tumor marker has been defined. We aimed to find the role of PLR as a diagnostic marker for PDAC in differentiating benign head mass comparing with carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9)...

BACKGROUND: Malnutrition is an important risk factor for adverse outcomes in patients awaiting liver transplant. Living donor liver transplant, being an elective procedure, allows nutritional rehabilitation and optimization of these patients before transplant. AIM: This paper aimed to evaluate the outcome of end-stage liver disease (ESLD) patients with various degrees of malnutrition waiting for living donor liver transplant. METHODS: Nutritional status was assessed using subjective global assessment (SGA) in patients who were evaluated for a liver transplant at our center from January 2015 to September 2015...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is safe and efficacious for the management of achalasia cardia (AC). POEM is usually performed under general anesthesia in an endoscopy suite or operating theatre. The current study was conducted with the aim to analyse anesthetic management of patients with AC who underwent POEM at our institution. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed the data of patients with AC who underwent POEM at our institution from January 2013 to September 2016...

BACKGROUND: An interventional procedure like celiac plexus neurolysis (CPN) has a significant role in relieving intractable pain in patients with locally advanced abdominal malignancies. Ultrasound (USG) guidance enables performance of bedside CPN by real-time visualization of the needle trajectory. The objective of the study was to perform percutaneous USG-guided CPN and to verify technical outcomes of the procedure using a post-procedure CT scan. METHODS: Eleven eligible patients of advanced upper abdominal malignancies having a pain score of >3/10 on visual analog scale (VAS) were recruited to undergo CPN...

Werner syndrome is a rare progeroid syndrome caused by the WRN gene mutation. It is characterized by a general appearance of premature aging, diabetes mellitus, and atherosclerosis, and an increased risk of malignancies. We report a patient who presented with hematemesis due to cirrhosis of liver and was subsequently diagnosed with Werner syndrome. Further genetic analysis showed a novel mutation in the WRN gene which has not previously been reported. Werner syndrome should be considered for the cases of liver cirrhosis when accompanied by the features of accelerated aging...

BACKGROUND: Prognosis of gallbladder cancer (GBC) is grim even after curative surgery. Lymph node metastasis is the most important prognostic factor, but distant relapses occurring in their absence point towards additional factor. Lymph node micrometastasis could be one. The present study aimed to evaluate the incidence and clinical significance of lymph node micrometastasis. METHODS: This is a prospective study of patients undergoing curative surgery for GBC from 1 March 2013 to 30 April 2015, at our institute...

AIM: We aimed to investigate the changes in adiposity and other cardiometabolic risk factors in the year following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in patients of Chinese ethnicity. METHODS: The study recruited 209 patients who met the indications for bariatric surgery. Adiposity and cardiometabolic risk factors were assessed at baseline and over the 12 months following surgery in all participants. SPSS® software was used for statistical analysis. RESULTS: The mean body mass index (BMI) was 29...

Trials on cap-assisted colonoscopy have shown a reduction in pain, faster intubation time and a higher success rate attributed to the use of the cap. No similar studies have been published on sigmoidoscopy even though it is a common procedure associated with significant pain. Our objective was to investigate whether the use of a transparent cap for sigmoidoscopy has an impact on pain, time or success rate. To mimic the tendencies of daily clinical practice, the trainee endoscopist performed the procedures, and no analgesics or sedatives were used...

Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is influenced by the disease state, associated complications and their management. In patients with liver cirrhosis co-morbidity, severity of liver disease and their complications are likely to affect the QOL. The aim of the study was to determine the factors that are likely to influence the domains of HRQOL using SF-36 in patients with liver cirrhosis. For the study, 149 patients with liver cirrhosis were compared with age-gender matched healthy controls for physical and mental components of SF-36 score and the effects of age, co-morbidity severity of liver disease and complications of liver cirrhosis on HRQOL were assessed using the same questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION: The common causes of morbidity after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) are infective complications. Till date, no specific preoperative markers have been identified to determine the probability of developing infective complications. We have studied the factors predicting the occurrence of the infective complication/s in the present study. METHODS: The present prospective observational study included 133 consecutive patients who underwent PD from January 2011 to June 2016 at a specialized hepatopancreaticobiliary surgical oncology unit...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: In living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), biliary complications continue to be the most frequent cause of morbidity and may contribute to mortality of recipients although there are advances in surgical techniques. This study will evaluate retrospectively the short-term and long-term management of biliary complications. METHODS: During the period from May 1999, to May 2004, 505 patients underwent 518 LDLT in the Department of Liver Transplantation and Immunology, Kyoto University Hospital, Japan...

BACKGROUNDS: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is vulnerable to many various mutations. Those within epitopes recognized by sensitized T cells may influence the re-emergence of the virus. This study was designed to investigate the mutation in immune epitope regions of HBV pre-core/core among chronic HBV patients of Golestan province, Northeast Iran. METHODS: In 120 chronic HBV carriers, HBV DNA was extracted from blood plasma samples and PCR was done using specific primers...

AIMS: Treatment options for benign refractory esophageal stricture are limited. We retrospectively analyzed data of 11 patients who underwent fully covered self-expanding metallic stent (FC-SEMS) placement for refractory benign esophageal stricture at our institute. METHODS: Refractory benign esophageal stricture was defined as inability to dilate a stricture to a diameter of 14 mm after a minimum of five sessions at 2-week intervals or inability to maintain diameter of 14 mm for at least 4 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Direct-acting antiviral drugs (DAAs) are favored for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. However, the experience with the DAAs currently available in India in the treatment of genotype-3 HCV is limited. We therefore reviewed our experience with these drugs in treating patients with chronic genotype-3 HCV infection, including those with cirrhosis. METHODS: We prospectively followed adult patients with genotype-3 HCV infection who had received treatment regimens containing sofosbuvir with/without daclatasvir...
