Color Doppler US and tri-phasic CT in differentiating benign from malignant portal vein thrombosis (PVT)

Conclusion: Distinguishing benign from malignant PVT in patients with HCC is required to determine the management plan. The color Doppler study of PVT should be an essential step in evaluation of patients with HCC. The combination of Color Doppler US and tri-phasic CT is common and essential for more accurate evaluation and differentiation of benign from malignant PVT.

A small number of patients with liver cysts present with symptoms. Percutaneous needle aspiration with injection of a sclerosing agent can be an effective non ‚Äźsurgical treatment for patients with symptomatic cysts, and to our knowledge, this is the first case to show improvement of restrictive ventilatory impairment. Most patients with liver cysts are asymptomatic and require no treatment. In this patient with symptoms and restrictive ventilatory impairment, percutaneous needle aspiration with injection of minocycline hydrochloride was effective.

ConclusionsNeedle aspiration of the ganglion was performed, and swelling of the lower extremity promptly decreased. At 7.5 years after aspiration, there was no recurrence of swelling of the leg. Although the recurrence rate for ganglions after needle aspiration is high, it is worthwhile trying aspiration first.

ConclusionsDuplex ultrasound should be selected as the first choice for screening of synovial cyst of the hip joint with femoral vein compression. Moreover, it can be used as the first choice for follow-up of these patients. MRI or CT can provide more anatomic information for surgical treatment. Surgical excision of the cyst is the preferred treatment method, with a lower rate of cyst recurrence compared with needle aspiration.

ConclusionRecent data suggest a minimum node count of six to seven for inguinal dissection. Of our four dissections, two were above this threshold and there were minimal postoperative complications. Given our limited sample size, future focus should be on increasing the data on this approach to optimize surgical outcomes and oncologic results.
