CONCLUSION: Outside endemic areas and in the absence of hepatic involvement pulmonary alveolar echinococcosis can be difficult to diagnose. This case report focuses on the diagnostic criteria and treatment. PMID: 29395568 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionPatients treated by LT for unresectable CLM have a good prognosis following resection of pulmonary metastases. Doubling time did not appear to be worse with the immunosuppression used after LT.

We present the first case of TFE3‐rearranged hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma in a 39‐year‐old Taiwanese woman. Computed tomography scan revealed multifocal, ill‐defined nodules involving both hepatic lobes. She then underwent deceased donor liver transplantation. Histologically, the tumors in the liver explant showed a biphasic growth pattern. One component was composed of dilated and well‐formed blood vessels lined by epithelioid cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm, mimicking an alveolar pattern, whereas the other component was composed of cords and single cells, featuring intracytoplasmic vacuol...

In this study, researchers analysed data of millions of British patients between 1995 and 2015 to see if this claim held true. They tracked people who were obese at the start of the study, defined as people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more, who had no evidence of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes at this point. They found these people who were obese but "metabolically healthy" were at higher risk of developing heart disease, strokes and heart failure than people of normal weight. No such thing as 'fat but fit', major study finds Several studies in the pas...

CONCLUSION: There is an association between the presence of extensive B-lines to the point of confluence and "dirty shadowing" on ultrasound examinations of the chest and associated findings on chest radiographs and CT scans of diffuse parenchymal lung disease. Conversely, isolated B-lines do not always correlate with abnormalities on chest X-ray or and in fact appear sometimes to be a normal variant. PMID: 28522112 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Patients (pts) awaiting mechanical circulatory support (MCS) implantation who have known liver disease from congestive hepatopathy (CH) are at increased risk for morbidity and mortality post-implant. The evaluation of the liver in these pts is difficult as liver imaging and liver biopsy (Bx) may not represent true pathology. Fibrosis on liver biopsy has been acceptable to proceed with MCS however there is contention. Therefore, we assessed our pts being evaluated for MCS with known CH necessitating liver evaluation by either ultrasound (US) or computerized tomography (CT) scans and liver Bx.

Conclusions Hepatothorax is a rare condition and its repair may represent an anesthetic challenge. After liver replacement in the abdominal cavity during corrective surgery under general anesthesia complications may occur, particularly associated with pulmonary re-expansion. Effective teamwork and careful planning of surgery, between the surgical and anesthetic teams, are the key to success.

by Yingming Amy Chen, Vikramaditya Prabhudesai, Helene Castel, Samir Gupta Background Hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) is defined by liver dysfunction, intrapulmonary vascular dilatations, and impaired oxygenation. The gold standard for detection of intrapulmonary vascular dilatations in HPS is contrast echocardiography. However, two small studies have suggested that patients with HPS have larger segmental pulmonary arterial diameters than both normal subjects and normoxemic subjects with cirrhosis, when measured by CT. We sought to compare CT imaging-based pulmonary vasodilatation in patients with HPS, patients with liver d...

Abstract: Positron emission tomography (PET) visualizes increased cellular [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose ([18F]FDG) uptake. Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is conceived of a proliferative disease of the lung vessels. Increased glucose uptake can be quantified as pulmonary [18F]FDG uptake via PET imaging. Because the angioproliferative mechanisms in PH are still in need of further description, the aim of the present study was to investigate whether [18F]FDG PET/CT imaging can elucidate these pathophysiologic mechanisms in different etiologies of PH. Patients (n = 109) with end-stage pulmonary disease being evaluated for lung tra...
