Authors: Lee YR, Park SY, Tak WY Abstract Background/Aims: The treatment outcomes and prognostic markers of acute variceal bleeding (AVB) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients remain unclear. Therefore, we evaluated the clinical outcomes and prognostic factors of AVB in HCC patients. Methods: Cirrhotic patients with endoscopically confirmed AVB between 2007 and 2013 were enrolled in this prospective study. Prognostic factors were identified by multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression analysis. Results: Among the 329 enrolled patients, 125 patients (38.0%) were diagnosed with HCC. The 6-week mor...

Rationale: Despite vast improvements in technique, several complications still challenge surgeons and medical practitioners alike, including biliary and vascular complications, acute and chronic rejection, and disease recurrence. Patient concerns: A 59-year-old man was admitted to hospital on July, 2016. He had hepatitis B cirrhosis related recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma and underwent living donor liver transplantation in our hospital. Diagnosis: At the time of admission, the patient's spirit, diet, sleep, normal urine and stool, and weight did not change significantly. The test indicators are as follows: total...

Authors: Kifle E, Hussein M, Alemu J, Tigeneh W Abstract Background: Anemia is a common finding in cancer, which is caused by many factors. It is a major cause of morbidity in cancer patients, worsens disease status and impairs treatment outcome; however, little is known about the prevalence of anemia and associated factors among cancer patients during diagnosis in developing countries like Ethiopia. In response to this, we have conducted research with the aim of assessing the prevalence of anemia and associated factors among newly diagnosed patients with solid malignancy at Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital (TASH...

An 89-year-old man with a history of alcoholic cirrhosis underwent transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The 52  × 50 × 42-mm HCC was widely spread throughout the right lobe without any vascular invasion (Fig.1). Incidentally, hematuria developed after the insertion of a urinary catheter for standard perioperative management. However, the hematuria got progressively worse. Subsequently, cystoscopy w as performed that revealed a small bleeding polypoid lesion located on the anterior wall of the urinary bladder (Fig.

Conclusion and Relevance: In patients with end-stage cirrhosis, use of NSBBs did not affect 24-month mortality. More research is needed to determine when, and if, NSBBs should be discontinued in end-stage cirrhosis. PMID: 31701773 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Hepatopancreatobiliary surgery is a difficult intervention and is associated with serious morbidities. Synchronisation of hepatopancreatobiliary surgery with CRS/HIPEC may be challenging for the surgeon and clinician. Here we emphasise that this combination can be performed safely by an experienced team with a multidisciplinary approach and good patient preparation.

Abstract The role of liver biopsy in the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been challenged over time by the ability of imaging techniques to characterize liver lesions in patients with known cirrhosis. In fact, in the diagnostic algorithm for this tumor, histology is currently relegated to controversial cases. Furthermore, the risk of complications, such as tumor seeding and bleeding, as well as inadequate sampling have further limited the use of liver biopsy for HCC management. However, there is growing evidence of prognostic and therapeutic information available from microscopic and molecular analy...
