PURPOSE OF REVIEW: As pediatric oncology has become more complex, designing and maintaining pediatric surgical protocols require greater expertise. The primary purpose of this review is to summarize the changes in protocols and new study findings, which have changed surgical practice for children with solid tumors. RECENT FINDINGS: The most common solid tumors treated by surgery are reviewed. There are new methods of surgical techniques such as the use of sentinel lymph node techniques for the assessment of lymph nodes in pediatric sarcoma...

The Cancer Stem Cells (CSC) hypothesis is based on three fundamental ideas: 1) the similarities in the mechanisms that regulate self-renewal of normal stem cells and cancer cells; 2) the possibility that tumour cells might arise from normal stem cells; 3) the notion that tumours might contain 'cancer stem cells' - rare cells with indefinite proliferative potential that drive the formation and growth of tumours. The roles for cancer stem cells have been demonstrated for some cancers, such as cancers of the hematopoietic system, breast, brain, prostate, pancreas and liver...

Transection methods and hemostasis achievement have an impact on blood loss, and consequently on outcome and survival. However, no consensus exists on parenchymal transection or hemostasis techniques in laparoscopic liver resection (LLR). The aim of this review is to clarify the role of energy devices (ED) in LLR. ED is a generator of mechanic or electric energy transfer to an operating tool, used for transection, sealing or both. Searches were performed in PubMed, PubMed Central, Cochrane, Embase, Google Scholar in human or animal experimental models...

Image-guided ablation has evolved rapidly in the past decade into a competitive technique for treating focal solid malignancies. However, as they rely mainly on thermal energy, such as radiofrequency or microwave, many tumors close to sensitive organs, such as ducts, bowel, and nerves, still remain nonablatable owing to the risk of thermal injury. Irreversible electroporation is a novel ablation modality that relies largely on a nonthermal mechanism to induce cell death, and therefore may overcome many of the shortcomings of thermal ablation...

Living donor transplantation is an accepted clinical practice in select transplant centers in Western countries to increase the availability of organs, while is standard practice in East Asian transplant programs. Living-donor right hepatic lobe resection is a particularly risky operation, with two mandatory outcomes: no serious complications for the donor, and an optimal graft-recipient body weight ratio. The use of robotic surgery has increased worldwide thanks to its minimally invasive approach, and is now becoming suitable for living donor procurement...

K P De Jong
Partial liver resection is a well established treatment for patients with liver tumors. It is associated with significant morbidity and some mortality, even in high volume centers. Less invasive modalities are currently available and deserve a place in the armamentarium of liver surgeons. This review discusses the role of thermoablation as a treatment modality for liver tumors. The minimal invasive possibility of percutaneous ablation is a great advantage. The limitation of ablation is the high incidence of ablation site recurrences...

Cancer biology has proven to be far more complex than imagined twenty years ago. While current treatment strategies (i.e., surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation) are successful in many cancers, they all have limitations. In some types of solid tumors some survival progress has been recorded, such in the case of breast and colorectal cancer, but these improvements are probably mainly due to screening programmes and earlier detection than to more-effective treatment. In other tumor types the mortality certainly increased: the death rate from lung cancer rose from 43 to 53 per 100,000 people from 1975 to 2005, the death rate from melanoma has risen nearly 30 percent, and death rate from liver and bile-duct cancer almost doubled, from 2...

This is the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Society for Gastrointestinal Intervention, a multi-disciplinary group of practitioners committed to a minimally invasive approach to both the diagnosis and treatment of digestive disorders. The key concepts are minimally invasive and multi-disciplinary which can be construed as practicing in parallel with occasional lines of procedural and clinical interaction or inter-disciplinary in which patients are acutely cared for by a team, with treatments tailored to the patient and not the discipline that touches the patient first...

Combining surgery and chemotherapy in the treatment of patients with colorectal hepatic metastases is increasingly becoming the standard of care. However, controversy remains regarding the juxtapositioning of chemotherapy and surgery, the duration of chemotherapy, and particularly, the use of preoperative chemotherapy in the treatment of patients with initially resectable metastases. The arguments for and against the different approaches presented are based on the data published in the medical literature and on the data presented at the most recent major oncology meetings, coupled with the personal experience of the authors...

The increasing incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has led several countries to standardize and update its management. This review aims at summarizing these evolutions through six questions focusing on diagnosis and treatment. The radiological diagnosis of this tumor has been refined. Besides being hypervascular at the arterial phase, the "washout" in particular at the late phase of injection has become a prominent feature. Although routine ultrasound remains the corner stone of screening, contrast ultrasound has become a very reliable characterization tool as it allows continuous monitoring of the vascular kinetics...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is recognized as the most common type of chronic liver disease in Western countries and the leading cause of cryptogenic cirrhosis. Insulin resistance (IR) is a key factor in the pathogenesis of NAFLD, the latter being considered as the hepatic component of IR or metabolic syndrome (MetS). Although the pathogenesis of NAFLD is not fully elucidated, a complex interaction between adipokines and cytokines produced by adipocytes and/or inflammatory cells infiltrating adipose tissue appears to play a crucial role in MetS and NAFLD...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Recent introduction of multi-detector CT (MDCT) and high-speed magnetic resonance (MR) imaging have dramatically advanced visualization and imaging technology in diagnostic and therapeutic strategy in hepatobiliary pancreatic disease. However, image diagnostics have progressed with a background of the essence of anatomy, pathology, and physiology. It is important to object the reflection of the patient's condition and pathology of each disease and remove pattern recognition in what they were depicted as an image...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The trend to extubate patients as soon as possible following large and complex surgery is supported by a large body of evidence showing early extubation is safe and saves money. However, the use of early extubation in liver transplant recipients is still debated. This review will explore the reasons why there is still resistance to the use of early extubation in liver transplantation. RECENT FINDINGS: Studies show the majority of liver transplant recipients can be extubated immediately after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Subclinical hepatic dysfunction after laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has been described in the literature. However, this alteration is not encountered in all patients. In order to address this situation, a prospective study was conducted to investigate the effect of abdominal perfusion pressure (APP) on liver function tests after LC performed under constant intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Of 78 patients who underwent LC between May 2007 and October 2007, 40 patients were eligible for the study...

BACKGROUND: Reduced resident work hours over the last several years have led to inadequate exposure to hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) and complex upper gastrointestinal (UGI) surgical procedures. Therefore, residents are seeking additional training in this field. The purpose of this study is to determine the role of a new fellowship model in the training of general surgery residents in complex HPB/UGI diseases. METHODS: We propose a surgical training model in benign as well as malignant diseases of the UGI tract...
