AbstractPurpose of ReviewLiver transplantation (LT) has been utilized in the last two decades for the treatment of selected patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Currently, in most jurisdictions worldwide, only tumor size and number determine transplant candidacy, which may not sufficiently predict tumor behavior. Both tumor downstaging and expanding transplant criteria play an important role in expanding access to LT for HCC patients.Recent FindingsNew downstaging protocols are emerging that incorporate response to locoregional therapies (LRT) among those that initially present beyond the accepted Milan criteria. ...

We present the case of a patient withBRAF-negative stage IVC anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) treated with the anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody, pembrolizumab, following radiographic progression on chemoradiation. Blood samples were collected prior to and at four time points during treatment with pembrolizumab. Mass cytometry was used to determine expression of relevant biomarkers by peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Faecal samples were collected at baseline and 4  weeks following treatment initiation; taxonomic profiling using 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequencing was performed. Following treatment, a marked ex...

Objective: To compare the rate of malreduction after high fibular fractures associated with syndesmosis injury treated with open reduction and internal fixation, with either 2 screws or 1 knotless TightRope device. Design: Prospective randomized controlled multicenter trial. Setting: Eleven academic and community hospitals including Level 1 and Level 2 trauma centers across Canada. Patients/Participants: One hundred three patients with OTA/AO 44-C injuries with demonstrated radiographic syndesmosis diastasis or instability after malleolar bony fixation were followed for 12 months after treatment. Methods: Ope...

Objective: To retrospectively review a large population of long cephalomedullary nails with special attention to distal implant position in the sagittal plane and assess the ability to avoid anterior cortical contact (ACC) by bending the distal tip of the nail intraoperatively. Design: Retrospective review of single surgeon experience. Setting: Single Level 1 trauma center. Outcomes: Radiographic position of the cephalomedullary nail with respect to the anterior femoral cortex and the effects of intraoperative bending of the distal tip of the nail. Patients: A total of 215 patients who underwent long cephalom...

Authors: Basourakos SP, Dean L, Van Gurp J, Reuter V, Russo P Abstract Adrenal-renal fusion is an anomaly misclassified as a renal tumor due to the absence of pathognomonic radiographic features. Herein, we report a case of a 61-year-old male who underwent a right radical nephrectomy for a presumed renal malignancy. Pathologic evaluation demonstrated a pheochromocytoma in the context of adrenal-renal fusion. Neoplastic transformation of fused adrenal tissue is rare but not unheard of and is typically adrenal cortical in origin. To our knowledge, this is the first description of a pheochromocytoma originating from a...

The cannulation of aortic side branches in endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) can be a challenging task. Normally, the branch identification can be performed only by using radiography and contrast dye, with documented safety risks to the patient. The TrackCath system (Medyria AG, Winterthur, Switzerland) aims to support the identification and cannulation of aortic side branches with a guiding catheter or a guidewire. It uses the low-energy hot-wire anemometry principle to detect changes in blood flow velocity and direction.
