Liver resection and hemangioma

Youlong Wang, Wenbin Ji, Xi Zhang, Jingwang Tan
BACKGROUND: Liver resection or enucleation has been the basic treatment for liver hemangioma. However, there were few reports about laparoscopic surgery (LS) of hemangioma. The intention of this study is to explore the indication and efficacy of LS for laparoscopic hepatectomy (LH) and develop an opinion of these modern developments. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Forty-four patients with LH underwent LS, with hemihepatic vascular occlusion (HVO group n = 24) or modified vascular occlusion (MVO group n = 20), and were retrospectively reviewed, including patients' demography, surgical technique, tumor size and location, blood loss, operation time, complications, modes of hepatic vascular occlusion and changes in postoperative liver function, and the difference in patients demography and operative outcome between HVO and MVO groups were compared as well...

AIM: To analyze retrospectively a 5-year experience of human hepatocyte isolation from resected liver tissues with benign disease. METHODS: We established a method of modified four-step retrograde perfusion to isolate primary human hepatocytes. Samples were collected from the resected livers of patients with intrahepatic duct calculi (n = 7) and liver hemangioma (n = 17). Only the samples weighing ≥ 15 g were considered suitable for hepatocyte isolation. By using the standard trypan blue exclusion technique, hepatocyte viability and yield were immediately determined after isolation...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Effective treatments are urgently needed for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which is usually diagnosed at advanced stages. Signaling via the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) pathway is aberrantly activated in HCC by IGF2 overexpression. We aimed to elucidate the mechanism of IGF2 overexpression and its oncogenic activities and evaluate the anti-tumor effects of reducing IGF2 signaling. METHODS: We obtained 228 HCC samples from patients who underwent liver resection, 168 paired non-tumor adjacent cirrhotic liver samples, and 10 non-tumor liver tissues from patients undergoing resection for hepatic hemangioma...

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is an uncommon and aggressive cancer occurring more frequently in women; local or distant recurrences occur in 80% of cases, typically within 1 year after curative resection. Liver is the preferred metastatic site. Herein, we report the case of a unique liver metastasis from ACC occurring 23 years after the curative prior tumor surgery. A 45-year-old woman was operated in 1991 for adrenocortical stage II without microvascular involvement or capsular infiltration. At that time, no adjuvant treatment was indicated...

Hemangiomas are benign vascular tumors. They are the prerogative of the liver and skin. And genitourinary localizations are rare and have only been rarely reported in the prostat, bladder, ureter or the perineum. In the light of published cases, urethral hemangiomas are mostly found in males. Few cases of hemangioma in the female urethra were reported. We report a cavernous hemangioma of the urethra in a 61 years old patient who presented bleeding from the urethra and micturition disorders. Physical examination revealed a tumor 3 cm x 2 polyploid arising from the terminal urethra (urethral hemangioma)...

Characteristic but rare vascular neoplasms in the adult liver composed of small vessels with an infiltrative border were collected from an international group of collaborators over a 5-year period (N=17). These tumors were termed hepatic small vessel neoplasm (HSVN), and the histologic differential diagnosis was angiosarcoma (AS). The average age of patients was 54years (range, 24-83years). HSVN was more common in men. The average size was 2.1cm (range, 0.2-5.5cm). Diagnosis was aided by immunohistochemical stains for vascular lineage (CD31, CD34, FLI-1), which were uniformly positive in HSVN...

BACKGROUND: Although being classically located inside the liver parenchyma, hemangiomas may occasionally develop outside the extra-hepatic capsule, thus appearing as a pedunculated mass. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 66-year-old anal cancer female patient presenting with an asymptomatic sub-hepatic mass. Incidental diagnosis of a pedunculated hepatic hemangioma was strongly suggested by the typical imaging features on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) examinations, and was confirmed by histopathological examination...

BACKGROUND: Four different sizes (4, 5, 8 and 10 cm in diameter) can be found in the literature to categorize a liver hemangioma as giant. The present review aims to clarify the appropriateness of the size category "giant" for liver hemangioma. DATA SOURCES: We reviewed the reports on the categorization of hemangioma published between 1970 and 2014. The number of hemangiomas, size criteria, mean and range of hemangioma sizes, and number of asymptomatic and symptomatic patients were investigated in patients aged over 18 years...

The bipolar radiofrequency device (Habib®) has been recently introduced in order to reduce intraoperative bleeding for a safe hepatic resection as an alternative to the conventional tools. However, indications, perioperative findings, and outcome of the device for hepatic resections remain and deserve to be analyzed. The current study aims to analyze the feasibility of the bipolar radiofrequency device (Habib®) for hepatic resections. Information of the patients that underwent hepatic resection using with the Habib® device between 2007 and 2011 was abstracted...

Adrenal hemangioma is an extremely rare benign and non-functioning neoplasm of the adrenal gland. We report a case of a 71-year-old woman admitted for intermittent abdominal pain and abdominal distension associated with vomiting and chronic constipation for 5 years. Physical examination revealed a large abdominal mass. Both computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging suggested hemangioma in the right lobe of the liver. Laboratory examinations and tumour markers were within normal limits, except for hypochromic microcytic anemia...

Splenic artery aneurysms (SAAs) are the third most frequent intra-abdominal aneurysm, following abdominal aorta and iliac artery aneurysms. SAAs are classified according to their involvement of arterial wall layers: true aneurysms involve all 3 layers (intima, media, and adventitia), and pseudoaneurysms involve only one or two. Herein we present a new case of giant pseudo SAA. A 65-year-old female patient with a pancreatic mass and iron deficiency was referred to our clinic for further investigation. Abdominal ultrasonography, contrast-enhanced CT and magnetic resonance imaging showed a lesion resembling a subcapsular hemangioma in the spleen, and aneurysmatic dilation of the splenic artery with a diameter of >5 cm...

INTRODUCTION: Hepatic hemangioma is one of the most common benign liver tumors. There are few published reports regarding liver transplantation using liver allografts with hemangioma. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 45-year-old man was evaluated as a living donor for 19-year-old son with cirrhosis due to hepatic fibrosis. Preoperative investigations revealed 20 and 7mm hemangiomas, at segment 2 (S2) and 4 (S4) respectively. Considering the anatomical relation of S2 hemangioma and Glisson 2, liver graft was designed as left lobe excluded S2 hemangioma by partial resection...

BACKGROUND: Angiomyolipoma is a unique mesenchymal neoplasm composed of blood vessels as well as smooth muscle and adipose cells. The liver is a less common site of origin, and hepatic angiomyolipoma is often an incidental finding on diagnostic imaging or is identified on evaluation of nonspecific symptoms. CASE PRESENTATION: We experienced four patients who were diagnosed histologically with hepatic angiomyolipoma. The preoperative diagnoses were angiomyolipoma in two patients, hepatocellular carcinoma in one, and cavernous hemangioma in one...
