BACKGROUND: The prognosis of metastatic recurrent non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is poor, and chemotherapy improves survival by only a few months. The concept of oligo-recurrence, defined as a small number of new lesions at a distant site theoretically curable by local therapy, has recently been proposed for several cancers. To evaluate the possible benefits of surgical resection for oligo-recurrence, we report the outcomes of seven patients who underwent hepatic resection for oligo-recurrence of NSCLC in the liver...

BACKGROUND: Infra-hepatic vena cava clamping (IIVCC) may reduce blood losses during liver resection. However, available literature is limited to reports from single institutions with a small sample size. To overcome those limitations, we performed a meta-analysis to examine the association between IIVCC and surgical outcomes. METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted to identify RCTs reporting on quantitative data on IIVCC. Random effects logistic regression calculated the pooled odds ratio (OR) for each surgical outcome...

BACKGROUND: Most liver resections are currently performed using an open approach. Robotic hepatectomy has been suggested as a safe and effective approach for hepatocellular carcinoma; however, studies regarding oncological and surgical outcomes are still limited. Accordingly, we performed this study to compare the surgical and oncological outcomes between robotic and open approaches. METHODS: Between June, 2013 and July, 2016, a total of 63 HCC patients undergoing robotic hepatectomy, and 177 patients undergoing open hepatectomy were included in this study to assess the surgical and oncological outcomes after hepatectomy...

We report a case of biliary cyst type II which, independently of its a priori benign nature, caused numerous complications such as recurrent cholangitis and pancreatitis, as well as subsequent hepatic fibrosis and the potential danger of choledochocele perforation. Although they are benign, biliary/choledochal cysts can cause numerous disorders such as cholestasis, leading to cholangitis and pancreatitis and biliary sepsis, and due to chronic inflammation of the biliary system even cholangiocarcinogenesis. Our findings showed that sometimes this type of biliary cyst (according to the available literature the rarest and most benign type), as well as type I cyst, should undergo timely radical excision...

BACKGROUND: Both two-stage hepatectomy (TSH) and one-stage hepatectomy (OSH) represent feasible strategies for resection of advanced bilobar colorectal liver metastases (CLM). However, the influence of the surgical approach on postoperative outcomes and overall survival (OS) is unknown. To define the optimal surgical approach for advanced bilobar CLM requiring right hemihepatectomy, we compared short-term and long-term outcomes following TSH and OSH with contralateral resection or radiofrequency ablation (RFA)...
