REVIEW
Sang Woo Cha
Intrahepatic duct (IHD) stone is the presence of calculi within the intrahepatic bile duct specifically located proximal to the confluence of the left and right hepatic ducts. This stone is characterized by its intractable nature and frequent recurrence, requiring multiple therapeutic interventions. Without proper treatment, biliary strictures and retained stones can lead to repeated episodes of cholangitis, liver abscesses, secondary biliary cirrhosis, portal hypertension, and death from sepsis or hepatic failure...

BACKGROUND: Infection is a leading cause of death after liver transplantation (LT). Therefore, prevention of infection is crucial for improving outcomes after LT. We examined the impact of early enteral nutrition with an immunomodulating diet (IMD) enriched with hydrolyzed whey peptide (HWP) formulation on infection after living donor LT (LDLT), focusing on sarcopenia. METHODS: This study enrolled 279 consecutive patients who underwent primary LDLT at our institute between January 2008 and April 2015...

PURPOSE: Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a lethal disease; however, the frequency of recurrence can be reduced if curative surgery following adjuvant chemotherapy is applied. At present, adjuvant chemotherapy is uniformly performed in all patients, as it is unclear which tumor types are controlled best or worst. We investigated patients with recurrence to establish the optimum treatment strategy. METHODS: Of 138 patients who underwent curative surgery for PDAC, 85 developed recurrence...

BACKGROUND: The major issue after liver resection for colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) is the high incidence of recurrence. Unlike open liver resection (OLR), recurrence following laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) is not well documented. The aim of this study was to analyze recurrence patterns and treatment following LLR for CRLM. STUDY DESIGN: All patients who underwent LLR for CRLM from 2000 to 2016 were reviewed. Patients who presented with recurrence were compared to those who did not...

REVIEW

Male breast cancer (MBC) is a rare disease but, as a result of epidemiological collaborations, there is now greater clarity concerning endocrine risk factors. The significant rise in global age-standardised mean BMI in men is likely to lead to increases in incidence of maturity-onset diabetes and MBC. The metabolic changes accompanying obesity decrease androgens and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), thereby increasing available oestrogens. The higher rates of MBC in North and Equatorial Africa are largely due to liver damage from endemic bilharziasis and hepatitis B causing elevated oestradiol (E2 ) levels from hepatic conversion of androgen...

Metastases to the liver from colorectal cancer (CRC) are common, and only a minority of patients are candidates for upfront surgery at the initial diagnosis. Carefully selected patients can achieve long-term survival from surgery with curative intent. Unfortunately, the risk of recurrence remains substantial after liver resection. In order to reduce the risk of relapse and improve the outcomes, the role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy has been assessed for resectable colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) with an improvement in progression-free survival (PFS)...

Background: Colorectal surgery in cirrhotic patients has had limited indications, but as the study aims to show, careful evaluation of risk factors can extend boundaries. Methods: From January 2011 to January 2016, using a case match cohort, 68 patients with colorectal malignancy and cirrhosis were compared against 136 persons with no liver disease. Significant risk criteria, morbidity and mortality were evaluated. Results: When analyzing specific risk factors age, etiology and severity of liver disease (MELD, Child-Pugh score, ascites and hypoalbuminemia) were found to be significant to surgical outcome...

BACKGROUND: Although patients undergoing liver transplantation (LT) are frequently exposed to predisposing factors of atrial fibrillation (AF) such as autonomic imbalance, surgical stress, and elevated catecholamine levels, the occurrence of intraoperative AF (IOAF) has not been fully examined in LT candidates. METHODS: Data from 1059 patients who underwent adult LT from 2006 to 2010 were analyzed. Among patients with preoperative normal sinus rhythm, the incidence, prognosis, and detailed characteristics of newly developed IOAF were assessed...

BACKGROUND: Living liver donors represent a special group of patients. They are healthy individuals who are exposed to a major surgery, in which the dominant liver proportion is extracted as a graft. Of all potential donor-related morbidities, posthepatectomy liver dysfunction (PHLD) is the most significant as it may be directly related to donor mortality. We aimed to review our data of adult living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) utilizing the right hemiliver grafts to determine the incidence and potential predictors for the development of PHLD, defined according to the International Study Group of Liver Surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Although the revised cardiac risk index (RCRI) is a useful tool for estimating the risk of postoperative cardiac events, whether it improves the prediction of cardiac events in patients undergoing liver transplantation (LT) has not been sufficiently demonstrated. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 1429 patients who underwent LT. Cardiac events were defined as myocardial infarction, death, or combined events within 30 days after surgery. The RCRI was defined as the number of independent predictors including high-risk surgery, ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure, cerebrovascular disease, insulin treatment, and creatinine level >2 mg/dL...

Liver transplantation is currently a standard therapy for patients with end-stage liver diseases and hepatocellular carcinoma. Given that liver transplantation has undergone a thriving development in these decades, the survival rates after liver transplantation have markedly improved as a result of the critical advancement in surgical techniques, immunosuppressive therapies, and postoperative care. However, infection remains a fatal complication after liver transplantation surgery. In particular, enterogenic infection represents a major complication in liver transplant recipients...

AIM: To analyze whether fluid overload is an independent risk factor of adverse outcomes after liver transplantation (LT). METHODS: One hundred and twenty-one patients submitted to LT were retrospectively evaluated. Data regarding perioperative and postoperative variables previously associated with adverse outcomes after LT were reviewed. Cumulative fluid balance (FB) in the first 12 h and 4 d after surgery were compared with major adverse outcomes after LT. RESULTS: Most of the patients were submitted to a liberal approach of fluid administration with a mean cumulative FB over 5 L and 10 L, respectively, in the first 12 h and 4 d after LT...

BACKGROUND:  Isolated tricuspid valve (TV) surgery is considered a high risk-procedure. The optimal surgical approach is controversial. We analyzed our experience with isolated TV redo surgery performed either minimally invasively (redo-MITS) or through sternotomy. METHODS:  We retrospectively analyzed all patients with previous cardiac surgery who underwent redo-MITS ( n  = 26) and compared them to redo-Sternotomy ( n  = 17). A group of primary-MITS ( n  = 61) served as control...
