Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a therapeutic option, valid for patients who are not candidates for curative treatments, which has demonstrate to improve survival. Complications of TACE are very frequent and often severe. Postembolization syndrome is extremely frequent. Liver abscess, acute pancreatitis, acute cholecistitis, biloma, intestinal ischemia, gastroduodenal ulcerations and liver failure, are less frequent complications...

Portal biliopathy is a rare condition that is usually not diagnosed. It is associated with presence of varix around bile duct with concomitant ischemic damage and structural alterations of bile duct wall; this produces obstructive phenomena. There are scarce reports on the literature this entity. In the present paper, we report two cases in which obstruction of extrahepatic bile duct was associated with cholecystitis with well-documented extrahepatic portal hypertension. Both cases were managed with cholecystectomy and endoscopic placement of endoprothesis...

Development of surgery of cholelithiasis is regarded. Classic surgical interventions on the gall bladder and bile ducts in complicated disease (acute cholecistitis, jaundice, cholangitis), postcholecistectomy syndrome, surgical trauma of the bile ducts are substantiated. To 1980s modern views on pathogenesis of the disease have been formed. However, unresolved problems of surgical policy, traumatism of open surgeries in complicated forms of the disease (postoperative lethality in acute cholecistitis was 37% and over) made results of treatment unsatisfactory...

Referring to the difficult laparoscopic cholecistectomies, the author underlines the actuality of theme and the value of the dialogue between surgeons. The author discusses the anatomo-pathological formes, generating of intraoperative difficulties and emphasises that such historical interventions for difficult cholecistectomies, may be reactualised, with good results in practice. Punctually, he refers to some variants of cholecistectomy: cholecistendesis for sclero-atrophic cholecist and Pribram mucoclasic for cirrhotic patient...

From 2505 cases operated between 1994-2000, the authors selected a lot of 889 cases of difficult cholecystectomy, which after classical criteria would have been classified as contraindications of laparoscopic procedure. This study analyzed of intraoperative incidents, the conversion rate and particularities of operative tactics and techniques. The lot of patients includes 889 cases of difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The patients were selected according to classical contraindications of laparoscopic cholecystectomy: obesity, liver cirrhosis, previous operated abdomen, severe cardio-pulmonary diseases, ages over 70 years, acute cholecistitis...

BACKGROUND: Systemic chemotherapy does not satisfactorily improve the poor prognosis of pancreas and biliary tract cancer unresectable or metastatic to the liver. Intra-arterial infusion of antineoplastic agents can give higher concentrations to the tumor and slighter concentrations to the whole body, with a potential of efficacy and lower toxicity, due to the hepatic clearance. METHODS: Based on a safe and ambulatorial technique of transcutaneous arterial port implantation, this study was designed to evaluate feasibility and toxicity of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) intra-arterial continuous infusion combined with systemic gemcitabine with dose escalation...

Experience of performance of concurrent operations in 124 patients with chronic and acute calculous cholecistitis (CC) in presence of concurrent surgical diseases was summarized. Application of oblique minilaparotomic access in right subcostal region without m. rectus abdomini intersection had permitted after the cholecystectomy performance to broaden the indications for the concordant operative interventions performance using other surgical accesses. Inexpediency of doing of surgical interventions on stomach, n...

Conservative therapy of spleen injuries (non-operative treatment, partial splenectomy, autotransplantation, etc.) makes it possible to avoid the risk related to post-splenectomy hyposplenism. The videolaparoscopic approach makes the performance of such treatment possible achieving a clear reduction in surgical stress. The authors report two multiple injured patients showing spleen lesions, treated conservatively through videocoelioscopic procedure. Both patients (a 42-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man) presented hemorrhagic shock in hemodynamic compensation and hemoperitoneum...
