INTRODUCTION: The present case reports demonstrated the accompanying surgical support from hepato-biliary-pancreas (HBP) surgeons for urological surgery to secure operative safety because HBP surgeons are well experienced in dissecting techniques for mobilization of the liver or pancreas. We experienced 9 consecutive patients who underwent nephrectomy, adrenectomy or resection of retroperitoneal tumors by urological surgeons. Cardiovascular intervention was also required in cases of long tumor thrombus into the vena cava...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical resection is the only curative treatment for perihilar cholangiocarcinoma. However, Hepatopancreatoduodenectomy (HPD) procedure remains controversial in regard to the balance between the survival benefit and high risk of mortality and morbidity. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 72-year-old man who was revealed the dilation of intrahepatic hepatic duct by computed tomography after laparoscopic total gastrectomy was referred to our hospital. The patient had undergone laparoscopic total gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y esophageal-jejunostomy reconstruction 1year previously...

Bile acids (BAs) regulate the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, cholesterol and lipids but have also a key role as singalling molecules and in the modulation of epithelial cell proliferation, gene expression and metabolism. These homeostatic pathways, when disrupted, are able to promote local inflammation, systemic metabolic disorders and, ultimately, cancer. The effect of hydrophobic BAs, in particular, can be linked with cancer in several digestive (mainly oesophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, biliary tract, colon) and extra-digestive organs (i...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatic reconstruction following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is still debatable even for pancreatic surgeons. Ideally, pancreatic reconstruction after PD should reduce the risk of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) and its severity if developed with preservation of both exocrine and endocrine pancreatic functions. It must be tailored to control the morbidity linked to the type of reconstruction. This study was to show the best type of pancreatic reconstruction according to the characters of pancreatic stump...

Desmoid type fibromatosis (DTF) is a rare, locally invasive, non-metastasizing soft tissue tumor. We report an interesting case of DTF involving the pancreatic head of a 54-year-old woman. She presented with intermittent dysphagia and significant weight loss within a 3-mo period. Laboratory findings showed mild elevation of transaminases, significant elevation of alkaline phosphatase and direct hyperbilirubinemia, indicating obstructive jaundice. Computerized tomography of the abdomen revealed a mass in the head of the pancreas, dilated common bile duct, and dilated pancreatic duct...

CMV infection plays an important role in the postoperative course following solid organ transplantation. We present the case of an 11-year-old male patient who underwent LDLT due to severe hepatopulmonary syndrome and biliary cirrhosis. Four weeks after LDLT, he developed persistent GI bleeding and was subjected to repeated endoscopic treatment and radiological arterial embolization to stop the bleeding from duodenal ulcers. Diagnostic workup was negative for CMV disease. Because the bleeding persisted, surgical treatment was indicated, and a pancreas-preserving duodenectomy was performed...

SLC39A14 (also known as ZIP14), a member of the SLC39A transmembrane metal transporter family, has been reported to mediate the cellular uptake of iron and zinc. Recently, however, mutations in the SLC39A14 gene have been linked to manganese (Mn) accumulation in the brain and childhood-onset parkinsonism dystonia. It has therefore been suggested that SLC39A14 deficiency impairs hepatic Mn uptake and biliary excretion, resulting in the accumulation of Mn in the circulation and brain. To test this hypothesis, we generated and characterized global Slc39a14-knockout (Slc39a14(-/-) ) mice and hepatocyte-specific Slc39a14-knockout (Slc39a14(fl/fl);Alb-Cre(+) ) mice...

BACKGROUND: Poor-quality transitions of care from hospital to home contribute to high rates of readmission after complex abdominal surgery. The Coordinated Transitional Care (C-TraC) program improved readmission rates in medical patients, but evidence-based surgical transitional care protocols are lacking. This pilot study evaluated the feasibility and preliminary effectiveness of an adapted surgical C-TraC protocol. STUDY DESIGN: The intervention includes in-person enrollment of patients...

Hemobilia is a rare cause of upper digestive bleeding, and it should be suspected when there are traumas of the liver area or surgical or exploratory interventions of the liver-bile-pancreas area in the patient's history. Iatrogenic bleeding occurs, most often, after transcutaneous bile punctures, laparoscopic cholecystectomies, cateterisms of the biliary ways. After such interventions, hemobilia may appear earlier, but also up to a few months later. We present a case of massive hemobilia occurring 22 months after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy...

INTRODUCTION: The most common reason of chronic pancreatitis is liver and bile ducts disease: functional disorders, chronic cholecystitis, cholelithiasis and cholecystectomy in medical history. All these changes are associated with the colloidal structure of bile, increased lithogenicity, gallstones formation, Oddi's sphincter dysfunction, dysmotility and inflammation in the bile ducts. THE AIM: to study the effectiveness of using medicine Liveria IC (metadoxine) in standard therapy as well as effect on spectrum of blood serum lipids and structural condition of liver (stiffness) and pancreas in patients with chronic biliary pancreatitis combined with obesity...

We report varicella-zoster virus (VZV) gastritis in a 70-year-old woman postchemotherapy for lymphoma, presenting with abdominal pain, vomiting, and delirium without rash. A gastric biopsy demonstrated viral inclusions but posed a diagnostic challenge as immunohistochemistry for cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex virus were negative, and VZV immunohistochemistry was not available. The patient developed a vesicular rash 7 days after her symptoms began. Molecular testing of the gastric biopsy and a skin swab both confirmed VZV infection...

We reviewed available evidence on coffee drinking and the risk of all cancers and selected cancers updated to May 2016. Coffee consumption is not associated with overall cancer risk. A meta-analysis reported a pooled relative risk (RR) for an increment of 1 cup of coffee/day of 1.00 [95% confidence interval (CI): 0.99-1.01] for all cancers. Coffee drinking is associated with a reduced risk of liver cancer. A meta-analysis of cohort studies found an RR for an increment of consumption of 1 cup/day of 0.85 (95% CI: 0...

CLINICAL ISSUE: The increased use of highly developed imaging procedures, such as multidetector-row computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging has led to a substantial increase of asymptomatic and unexpected findings. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Abdominal CT investigations are particularly affected with a large number of incidental findings. This valuable diagnostic procedure also entails the risk of complex and cost-intensive subsequent investigations with partly invasive procedures...

A 64-year-old woman diagnosed with duodenal adenocarcinoma with duodenal stenosis and obstructive jaundice was referred to our hospital. Computed tomography revealed a tumor measuring 9×6 cm in the second portion of the duodenum that had invaded the liver(S6)and head of the pancreas. After percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage for obstructive jaundice, the patient underwent subtotal stomach-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy, partial resection of the liver(S6), and partial resection of the colon. Histologic examination showed the primary tumor to be moderately and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with hepatic and pancreatic invasion; lymph node metastasis was not found...
