Background: Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) is a life-threatening complication of end-stage liver diseases. It has been reported that traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) may improve liver function, delay disease progression, alleviate symptoms, and improve quality of life in HRS patients. The study aims to systematically review the efficacy of TCM for the treatment of HRS. Methods: Publications were searched electronically from China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Wanfang, VIP, PubMed, and EMBASE databases...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are exceedingly rare tumors in the pediatric population, as a result many clinicians either may never see this diagnosis or will encounter it only a few times throughout their careers. It is imperative in the pediatric population to follow appropriate steps to ensure a swift diagnosis and referral to specialized centers that are equipped with the multidisciplinary teams accustomed to treating rare diseases. This review aims to discuss the most recent data available on the diagnostic modalities utilized in cases of suspected Pediatric GIST...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are exceedingly rare tumors in the pediatric population. As a result, many clinicians either may never see this diagnosis or will encounter it only a few times throughout their careers. Additionally, the more we discover about this disease, it becomes evident that it represents a distinct clinical entity from adult GIST. Many of the treatments and strategies used to combat the adult tumor are either ineffective or may be harmful to the pediatric population with this disease...

REVIEW

The last 25 years have seen an increasing number of publications attesting the benefits of pharmaconutrition in the management of patients undergoing elective oncological gastrointestinal surgery. A number of randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses suggest the use of pharmaconutrition in this group of patients produces superior outcomes to standard nutritional formulations in terms of postoperative infective complications, anastomotic breakdown and length of hospital stay. The use of pharmaconutrition products, therefore, has gained increasing acceptance for use in elective gastrointestinal oncological surgical populations and been incorporated into practice guidelines...

Patients with a Fontan circulation face the long term risk of cardiac cirrhosis and the subsequent development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A hepatectomy operation imposes significant risk on such patients as the Fontan circulation can be severely compromised. Here we present a 24-year-old woman post-Fontan operation who successfully underwent a left hepatectomy, and discuss the anaesthetic and surgical management.

Distal pancreatectomy is well suited to the laparoscopic approach. Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP) provides the same postoperative recovery advantages reputed to minimal access surgery. However, there have been fears as to the safety of LDP in terms of life-threatening intra-operative events and post-operative complications, adequate carcinological outcomes as compared to traditional (open) distal pancreatectomy (ODP) when performed for cancer, as well as to whether the laparoscopic approach is well adapted to the variety of diseases that may affect the pancreas (ranging from trauma to benign or malignant disease) and whether the minimal access approach is well adapted to perform pancreatic surgery safely in the obese, the elderly or the frail...

REVIEW
Min Yao, Miao Fang, Wenjie Zheng, Zhizhen Dong, Dengfu Yao
Secretory clusterin (sCLU) is a small stress-induced cytoprotective chaperone protein. Its biological functions are similar to those of a heat-shock protein. The sCLU plays a crucial role in cell proliferation, multiple drug resistance, metastasis, and tumor progression. Abnormal sCLU expression in tumor tissues or sera of patients with primary hepatic cancer has been considered a useful biomarker for diagnosis and surveillance. However, the exact relationship between sCLU overexpression and malignant transformation of hepatocytes is still unknown...

#11
REVIEW
Kazuto Tajiri, Yukihiro Shimizu
Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are involved in various bioprocess such as protein metabolism, gene expression, insulin resistance and proliferation of hepatocytes. BCAAs have also been reported to suppress the growth of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells in vitro and to be required for immune cells to perform the function. In advanced cirrhotic patients, it has been clarified that serum concentrations of BCAA are decreased, whereas those of aromatic amino acids (AAAs) are increased. These alterations are thought to be the causes of hepatic encephalopathy (HE), sarcopenia and hepatocarcinogenesis and may be associated with the poor prognosis of patients with these conditions...

The incidence of laparoscopic liver resection (LHx) has been increased in the past decade. There have been some reports about some advantages of LHx, in both short and long-term outcomes after operation. The use of a minor LHx was regarded as a standard surgical practice, and some peri-operative complications hindered worldwide increase of LHx in the Second International Consensus Conference on LHx at Morioka. However, no suggestions were described in terms with how to provide the best teaching and training necessary to shorten the learning curve for inexperienced surgeons using a new surgical technique while continuing to maintain a low rate of morbidity from the very beginning...

Background: Background: Perioperative nutrition support has been shown to impact on outcomes for patients with gastrointestinal cancer. Postoperative benefits of feeding tubes must be weighed against morbidity related to placement and use. A simplified jejunostomy tube technique was evaluated for outcomes. Methods: A 16-Fr rubber tube is secured at the jejunal entry site without Witzel tunnel, followed by a continuous, circumferential and alternating suture between jejunal wall and parietal peritoneum...

Background: Surgical therapy of mid-stage gastric cancer (GC) and other neoplastic conditions requiring gastric resection remains at the center of curative outcomes, while epidemiologic changes and multimodality treatment options have evolved rapidly. Putative quality metrics for gastrectomy such as R0 rate, total lymph node (LN) count or postoperative morbidity may depend partly on changing disease and treatment patterns, and deserve evaluation under various practice conditions. Methods: Data within a U...

EDITORIAL
C Randall Cooper, Brendan F Scully, Steven Lee-Kong
Primary colorectal sarcomas have been defined as a rare and diverse group of mesenchymal cancers distinct from gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). Primary colorectal sarcomas have been recognized as a distinct entity from GISTs due to the dramatically worse prognosis these sarcomas carry. Also, primary colorectal sarcomas when compared to the more common colorectal adenocarcinoma, demonstrate more aggressive biology, present at a younger age and carry worse outcomes. At this time, surgery remains the mainstay of treatment and adjuvant chemotherapy has an unclear role in treatment of primary colorectal sarcoma...

REVIEW
Zenichi Morise
Liver resection (LR), liver transplantation (LT), transarterial chemoembolization, and local ablation therapy are the treatment options for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Although LR, LT and local ablation therapy (only for small tumor) provide the best hope for cure, most patients with HCC have also chronic liver disease (CLD) backgrounds, including HCV-liver cirrhosis. Therefore, they are at high risk for development of postoperative complications-sometimes fatal-and metachronous multicentric recurrent tumors occurring from the preneoplastic CLD background...

Cholangiocarcinoma is one of the epithelial cancers with the poorest prognosis and the narrowest therapeutic choice in humans. Compared with other cancer types, cholangiocarcinoma has been often neglected by oncology and liver research studies, thereby leaving many issues unsolved. Apart from the early and marked aggressiveness, one of the main reasons of the still unsatisfying clinical management of cholangiocarcinoma is its wide tumor heterogeneity needing more than other diseases a 'precision medicine' approach...

REVIEW
Pietro Di Fazio, Sami Matrood
Autophagy is a catabolic cellular process conserved in animals. It is characterized by the main role of recycling all the non-functional products of the cells. Once, autophagy players detect non-functioning sub-cellular organelles and proteins, they start the so-called nucleation process. The organelles will be surrounded by a double membrane vesicle mainly constituted by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane and autophagy proteins, e.g., MAP1LC3B, Beclin-1, VPS34, Unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase (ULK1) and ubiquitination-related proteins...
