Reply to: “The role of NAFLD in extrahepatic malignancies: The importance of ruling out the effect of obesity”

We thank Bo Zheng et al. for their interest in our study and for providing a valuable comment.1 Our study investigated the little understood relationship between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and extrahepatic cancers,2 and found that NAFLD was highly associated with the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), colorectal cancer in males, and breast cancer in females. This association suggests that NAFLD can serve as a risk factor of extrahepatic malignancies.

Conclusion: The system delivered stable electric current, which was proved by built-in impedance and current level measurements. Intra-anal sEMG confirmed the ability to target the branches of the autonomous nervous system originating from the sacral nerve roots. Significance: Stimulation outside of t- e operative field during rectal cancer surgery is feasible and may improve the practicality of pelvic intraoperative neuromonitoring.
