Hepatobiliar cancer

Paula Quesada-Soto, Denis Landaverde, Allan Ramos-Esquivel
BACKGROUND: Resection of liver-isolated metastases of colorectal cancer (CRC) offers the greatest likelihood of cure. Nevertheless, recurrence rates after this procedure are high, and chemotherapy is a reasonable choice with inconclusive evidence. We aimed to determine if there is a survival difference between patients receiving systemic therapy with surgery versus surgery alone for resection of liver metastases. METHODS: From a source population of 170 patients treated in our National Centre (Centro Nacional de Cirugía Hepatobiliar, San José, Costa Rica), with liver metastases from various primary sites, we selected 51 patients with CRC who underwent hepatic resection with curative intent...

Common complications involved in treating pediatric patients with cancer are bacterial, viral and fungal infections of the gastrointestinal tract including esophagitis, gastritis, duodenitis, colitis and hepatobiliar infections. In many cases there are multiple factors that predispose these patients to gastrointestinal infections, such as granulocytopenia, T-cell dysfunction, and mucosal damage. In addition, newer therapies have changed the spectrum of infection that is seen in these patients. The profound T-cell suppression associated with therapies such as stem cell transplantation has led to the emergence of previously rare infections including cytomegalovirus and adenovirus...

The diagnostic values of CA 19-9 and CEA were evaluated in 187 cases (including 31 gastric, 41 colorectal, 12 pancreatic, 7 hepatobiliar and 5 hepatocellular carcinomas). These tumor markers were compared to the other laboratory parameters [hemoglobin, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, serum bilirubin, ASAT (aspartate amino transferase), ALAT (alanine amino transferase) GGT (gamma glutamil transpeptidase), ALP (alkaline phosphatase)]. The specificity of CA 19-9 was 89.5%, while the sensitivity of this tumor markers was 91...
