REVIEW
Yaoping Shi, Bo Zhai
BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common cancer worldwide and the third most common cause of cancer-related deaths. Hepatic resection and liver transplantation are considered to be the preferred treatment for HCC. However, as novel therapeutic options such as image-guided locoregional therapies have emerged and been refined, the manner in which HCC is treated has changed dramatically compared with what it was considered just 2 decades earlier. SUMMARY: This study reviews the current results of various image-guided locoregional therapies for treating HCC, especially focusing on thermal ablative and transarterial techniques...

A 33-year-old male with abdominal distention after meals was admitted to the hospital. He had a history of surgery for hydatid liver cyst. The cyst was located at the liver hilum and there were portal venous thrombosis and cavernous transformation. It had been treated with partial cystectomy, omentoplasty and albendazole. Two years later at the admission to our center, his laboratory tests were in normal ranges. Abdominal imaging methods revealed splenomegaly, portal vein thrombosis, cavernous transformation and the previously operated hydatid liver cyst...

Patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) showing portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) have an extremely poor prognosis. According to treatment guidelines, the only option for HCC patients with PVTT is sorafenib chemotherapy. However, in Asia, various treatments have been attempted and possible prolongation of overall survival has been repeatedly reported. We herein report the first case of a patient with an initially unresectable advanced HCC with PVTT who underwent curative hepatectomy after sorafenib and transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) showing complete histological response...

Treatment option for liver cancer patients with large tumor >5 cm and/or portal vein tumor thrombosis is very limited. New treatment strategy is badly needed. Our study is to determine the safety and treatment efficacy of a new minimally invasive treatment strategy-liver segment thermal ablation.Late-stage hepatocellular carcinoma patients were included and treated with percutaneous ablation to destroy the entire tumor-containing liver segment to reduce reoccurrence and prolong survival. Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization was used before ablation to label tumor margin...

Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a rare complication of liver transplantation which can lead to graft failure and patient death. Treatment can be difficult, especially in cases of PVT from the intrahepatic portal vein to the proximal jejunal veins. A 55-year-old woman had undergone living-donor liver transplantation with splenectomy for end-stage liver cirrhosis due to hepatitis C with hepatocellular carcinoma. Ten months after transplantation, massive ascites and slight abdominal pain developed, and computed tomography revealed a PVT between the intrahepatic portal vein and the superior mesenteric vein...

Cirrhosis can occur with the development of portal vein thrombosis (PVT). PVT may aggravate portal hypertension, and it can lead to hepatic decompensation. The international guideline recommends for anticoagulation treatment to be maintained for at least 3 months in all patients with acute PVT. Low-molecular-weight-heparin and changing to warfarin is the usual anticoagulation treatment. However, warfarin therapy is problematic due to a narrow therapeutic window and the requirement for frequent dose adjustment, which has prompted the development of novel oral anticoagulants for overcoming these problems...

Splanchnic vein thrombosis (SVT) is one of the vascular complications of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN). We designed a phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate safety and efficacy of ruxolitinib in reducing splenomegaly and improving disease-related symptoms in patients with MPN-associated SVT. Patients, diagnosed with myelofibrosis in 12 cases, polycythemia vera in 5 and essential thrombocythemia in 4, received ruxolitinib for 24 weeks in the core study period. Spleen volume was assessed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and splanchnic vein circulation by echo-Doppler analysis...

INSTRUCTION: Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis can be a life-threatening complication after liver transplantation (LT). Although this complication is usually related to technical problems associated with vascular anastomosis, we report a case of IVC thrombosis which developed from a ligated large mesenteric-caval shunt. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 35-year-old man underwent LT from a brain-dead donor for primary sclerosing cholangitis. Enhanced computed tomography (CT) before LT showed a huge collateral vessel of the inferior mesenteric vein (IMV) draining into the infra-renal IVC directly...

Umbilical venous catheterization has become a widely accepted intravenous route for premature babies. These catheters allow administration of parenteral nutrition and medication and facilitate blood sampling. Besides these benefits, they also have significant potential complications like portal vein thrombosis, infection, vascular or hepatic injury, arrhythmia and sepsis. One of the rare but important complication is extravasation of the fluids due to misplacement of the catheter. The typical symptoms of this condition are sudden deterioration, hepatic enlargement, hematocrit drop, hypotension and abdominal distension...

INTRODUCTION: Today, pancreatic surgery can be performed with low mortality and tolerable morbidity in specialized centers. Nevertheless, due to its anatomical localization and proximity to important vascular structures, surgical resection of the pancreas remains challenging in many cases. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Here, we present the case of a young woman who presented in our department with abdominal pain and a tumor mass located at the pancreatic head. She had undergone explorative laparotomy elsewhere before, in which the pancreatic tumor mass was reported to be unresectable due to infiltration of the mesenteric root...

Portal hypertension commonly arises in the setting of advanced liver cirrhosis and is the consequence of increased resistance within the portal vasculature. Less commonly, left-sided noncirrhotic portal hypertension can develop in a patient secondary to isolated obstruction of the splenic vein. We present a rare case of left-sided portal hypertension and isolated gastric varices in a patient with large B-cell lymphoma, who was treated with splenic artery embolization. The patient is a 73-year-old male with no previous history of liver disease, who presented with coffee ground emesis and melena...

BACKGROUND: The mechanism for hypercoagulability in malignancy is not entirely understood. Although several studies report contrasting finding about the link between elevated plasma levels of the lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] and the possible recurrence of venous thromboembolism, we perform a study to evaluate the impact of the Lp(a) in the development of portal vein thromboembolism (PVT) in patients with HCC. METHODS: We compared 44 PVT patients with 50 healthy subjects and 50 HCC patients...
