BACKGROUND: In our process of standardizing laparoscopic right hemihepatectomy (Lap-RH), we found several advantages of the laparoscopic caudate lobe first approach by utilizing a unique laparoscopic caudodorsal view. METHODS: Between April 2012 and October 2017, 21 patients underwent pure Lap-RH at our hospital. The mean patient age was 62 years (range, 36-75 years), and there were more male than female patients (66.7%). Of 21 patients, 11 had hepatocellular carcinoma, 8 had metastatic tumor, and the other 2 had focal nodular hyperplasia and refractory liver abscess...

The clinical course of hepatic eosinophilic abscess (HEA) induced by malignant tumors is not well-known; however, it is considered to be a benign hepatic lesion. HEA is difficult to diagnose by imaging alone and a pathological examination is generally needed, particularly in patients with malignant tumors, because the radiological findings can be similar to those of metastasis. We report a case of multiple HEAs with eosinophilia and sigmoid colon cancer that was difficult to diagnose without a pathological examination...

Bacillus cereus is a Gram-positive rod that is now recognized as a rare cause of frank disease in the neutropenic hematologic malignancy patient. Because this pathogen is rarely isolated in clinical specimens, no large studies exist to guide the management of these acutely ill patients. Individual case reports and case series exist in the literature describing various clinical manifestations of B. cereus in the neutropenic patient including bacteremia/septicemia, pneumonia, meningitis/encephalitis, hepatic abscesses, and gastritis...

Liver and biliary track diseases are common extraintestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), reported both in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and may occur at any time during the natural course of the disease. Their etiology is mainly related to pathophysiological changes induced by IBD, and secondary, due to drugs used in IBD. Fatty liver is considered as the most frequent hepatobiliary manifestation in IBD, while primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is the most correlated hepatobiliary disorder and is more prevalent in patients with ulcerative colitis...

The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is growing rapidly in the United States. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis are being increasingly recognized as known risk factors for the development of HCC. However, this risk seems to be associated with their progression to cirrhosis. This case demonstrates an unusual initial presentation of HCC masquerading as liver abscesses in a previously healthy woman with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease without cirrhosis. Our patient's clinical presentation was suspicious for an infectious etiology due to her ongoing fever in the setting of possible zoonotic transmission, because she had just acquired two unvaccinated kittens...

INTRODUCTION: Amoebiasis is a cosmopolitan disease and the third most deadly of parasitic diseases. Entamoeba histolytica is the only one to be pathogenic. Its transmission is not only related to the faecal peril but also sexual, with cases described among men who have sex with men. A case of unusual sexual transmission is described in this article, aiming to discuss the impact of these ways of transmitting amoebiasis on patient management. CASE REPORT: We describe the case of an amebic liver abscess in a 27-years-old man who did not travel in endemic areas...

OBJECTIVES: Cryopreserved arterial allografts are vascular substitutes used for arterial reconstructions in a septic field. Their use remains however limited by the shortage of donors. One of the possibilities to address this lack of grafts is to multiply the sources of retrieval. The objective of this preliminary study was the evaluation of the early clinical results and the microbiological safety of arterial grafts retrieved after death. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In addition to the standard conditions of arterial sampling the criteria of inclusion for postmortem retrieval comprised the refrigeration of the body of the donor within four hours following the death, a 24-hour time limit from the death, and the availability of an adapted place for retrieval (surgical unit or death chamber respecting the required aseptic conditions)...

PURPOSE: The left gastric artery (LGA) is commonly severed when the gastric tube is made for esophageal reconstruction. Sacrifice of the LGA can cause liver ischemic necrosis in patients with an aberrant left hepatic artery (ALHA) arising from the LGA. We experienced a case of life-threatening hepatic abscess after severing the ALHA. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate clinical outcomes of severing the ALHA. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 176 consecutive patients who underwent esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: The endoscopic duodenal-jejunal bypass liner (DJBL) represents a novel temporary endoscopic approach for treatment of obesity-associated type 2 diabetes. Recent results from the German DJBL registry confirmed substantial positive metabolic effects of the DJBL in type 2 diabetes. However, the last Food and Drug Administration trial was stopped due to a high occurrence of hepatic abscesses (3.5%). OBJECTIVES: Here, we analyzed time courses of development of co-morbidities, nutritive changes, and occurrence of adverse events during the 1-year treatment phase with the DJBL in the German DJBL registry...

We report the first case of a healthy 23-year-old female who underwent an interventional radiology-guided embolization of a hepatic adenoma, which resulted in a gas forming hepatic liver abscess and septicemia by Clostridium paraputrificum . A retrospective review of Clostridial liver abscesses was performed using a PubMed literature search, and we found 57 clostridial hepatic abscess cases. The two most commonly reported clostridial species are C. perfringens and C. septicum (64.9% and 17.5% respectively)...

OBJECTIVE: Liver cysts are divided into congenital and acquired. Congenital cystic lesions include polycystic liver disease, simple cysts, duct related and ciliated hepatic foregut cysts. Acquired cystic lesions are divided into infectious and non-infectious. The infectious cysts are the hydatid cyst, the amoebic abscess, and the pyogenic abscess, whereas the non-infectious cysts are neoplastic cysts and false cysts. While modern medicine provides a lot of minimally invasive therapeutic modalities, there has emerged a pressing need for understanding the various types of liver cysts, the possible minimal therapeutic options along with their indications and complications...

Bronchobiliary fistula (BBF) is a rare condition, defined as an abnormal communication between the bronchial system and the biliary tree. Patients with this condition usually present with massive biliptysis, and the mortality rate is high. BBF has been reported to occur in patients with congenital conditions, complications of trauma, hepatic abscesses and biliary tract obstruction (surgical as well as non-surgical). However, to the best of our knowledge, BBF as a complication of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has not been reported to date...
