This is the first report of the successful management of HP caused by pancreatic adenocarcinoma by chemoradiotherapy, which is a treatment option for cases with a high surgical risk that are not suitable for interventional radiology. In the present case, bloody pancreatic juice was detected in the main pancreatic duct, and anemia worsened without repeated blood transfusions. The patient ...

Rationale: It is very difficult to treat patients with aplastic anemia accompanied by chronic kidney disease. The nephrotoxicity of cyclosporine limits its use in these patients. Most of these patients also lack suitable sibling donors. Sirolimus, as a new type of immunosuppressive agent, has good therapeutic effect, lower toxicity, especially lower nephrotoxicity, thus attracting the attention of hematologists. Patient concerns: This 55-year-old Chinese male patient suffered from pancytopenia and renal insufficiency and has a poor quality of life. Diagnosis: The patient was diagnosed as severe aplastic anemia with...

ConclusionReceipt of a PBT was an independent predictor of RFS and CSS in patients with surgically treated RCC, specifically locally advanced disease. Regarding the prognostic impact of timing or dose of PBT on survival, intraoperative BT and  ≥ 3 pRBC units were associated with adverse oncological outcomes.

AbstractInfra-ampullary duodenal lesions are rare and surgical management is controversial. Reconstruction after resection is usually performed by end-to-end or end-to-side duodenojejunostomy. The goal was to analyze our experience, perioperative management, and results after side-to-side duodenojejunostomy. Therefore, we retrospectively evaluated short- and long-term results of surgical resections of third and fourth duodenal portions for several kinds of lesions and reconstruction through duodenojejunostomy performed in our facilities between January 2012 and December 2018. In total, 12 patients were selected for our stu...
