Authors: Iglesias Jorquera E, Tomás Pujante P, Ruiz García G, Vargas Acosta ÁM, Pons Miñano JA Abstract Type III glycogen storage disease (GSD-III) is an autosomal recessive disorder due to the deficiency of the glycogen debrancher enzyme. 80% of the patients have hepatic and muscular involvement (IIIa), compared to 15% with only liver involvement (IIIb). As the life expectancy improves in these patients, the possible liver complications are better understood. PMID: 30318896 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo review the recent consensus on the nomenclature, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of combined hepatocellular carcinoma-cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-CCA).Recent FindingscHCC-CCA is a primary liver carcinoma with varying degrees of hepatocytic and cholangiocytic cytology and architecture within the same tumor. The diagnosis of cHCC-CCA can only be established based on histologic examination. Surgical resection should be considered in patients with resectable tumors who do not have underlying liver disease or clinically significant portal hypertension. While treatment by liver transplantatio...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis paper presents an overview of the current developments in the perioperative biliary atresia (BA) treatment.Recent FindingsBiliary atresia is a rare cholangiopathy and the most common indication for pediatric liver transplantation. Kasai portoenterostomy is the primary therapy, leading to sufficient biliary drainage in 20 –30% of patients with native liver. Multiple strategies in preoperative, operative, and postoperative care were tested to improve survival with native liver (SNL). Screening methods, centralization of care to specialized centers, laparoscopic Kasai procedure, and adjuvan...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2018Source: The American Journal of SurgeryAuthor(s): Benjamin W. Johnson, G. Paul WrightAbstractThe practice of hepatic surgery has become increasingly complex as additional therapeutic options emerge to treat both primary and metastatic tumors of the liver. Liver-directed therapy options include selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy, chemoembolization, bland embolization, hepatic artery infusion chemotherapy (HAIC), and ablative techniques such as microwave or radiofrequency ablation. Hepatocellular carcinoma has been treated with ma...

Publication date: Available online 21 September 2018Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical HaematologyAuthor(s): Daniel WeisdorfAbstractAllotransplantation in the absence of an HLA-matched sibling donor can offer numerous donor options including unrelated donor and umbilical cord blood grafting. Recently, haploidentical transplantation has exploded in popularity and worldwide use following the application of post-transplant cyclophosphamide (PTCy) for GVHD prophylaxis. Various approaches, disease states, conditioning intensities and supportive care advances have improved all these choices without demonstrable superio...

Goals: To evaluate the predictive value of hypoalbuminemia on liver transplant (LT) waitlist survival and probability of receiving LT among adults with end-stage liver disease (ESLD). Background: Growing evidence reports on the negative prognostic value of hypoalbuminemia among ESLD patients awaiting LT. Methods: Using 2003 to 2015 United Network for Organ Sharing data, we retrospectively evaluated the impact of mild-moderate (2.5 to 3.4 g/dL) and severe hypoalbuminemia (
