We report herein three cases of major hepatectomy with IVC invasion and discuss several surgical tips.Patients and MethodsFrom March 2011 to February 2014, we retrospectively reviewed three cases of adrenal malignancy with liver and IVC invasion. Based on the severity of the malignant tumor, each case illustrates a different method to address surgical complications and maintain oncologic safety. Case 1: A 34-year-old woman was diagnosed with adrenocortical tumor during medical examination. Tumor invaded the right lobe of the liver and very close to the IVC. Fortunately, there was little thrombosis inside the IVC; we perfor...

Physicians may soon use artificial intelligence (AI) and medical images to study tumors without a biopsy. The techniques developed to study tumors in this new way are described in the September 1 issue of The Lancet Oncology. Along with helping physicians learn more about tumors without surgery, the new approach should help identify which cancer patients will respond best to cutting-edge immunotherapy treatments. The AI techniques could be useful for “predicting clinical outcomes of patients treated with immunotherapy when validated by further prospective randomized trials,” the authors wrote. Immunotherapy tre...

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]

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.
