Objective Concomitant occurrence of alcoholic chronic pancreatitis (ACP) and alcoholic liver cirrhosis (ALC) is rare with few reported cases. The present study aimed to identify the potential risk factors of chronic pancreatitis (CP) and liver cirrhosis (LC) in ALC patients and ACP patients, respectively. Methods A retrospective analysis was performed on 536 patients with CP and 647 ALC patients without CP (Group A). Among the 536 CP patients, 213 ACP cases were divided into two groups: ACP with LC (Group B, n = 52) and ACP without LC (Group C, n = 161). A comparison between Group A and B was carried out to identify t...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) has historically been the most common cause of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the United States. With improved HCV treatment, cirrhosis secondary to other etiologies is increasing. Given this changing epidemiology, our aim was to determine the impact of cirrhosis etiology on overall survival (OS) in patients with HCC. METHODS: All patients with cirrhosis and primary HCC from the US Safety Net Collaborative (2012-2014) database were included. Patients were grouped into "safety net" and "academic" based on where they received thei...
