Conclusion: To our knowledge, only 6 cases of cranial CCC have been reported, and only 2 reported mixed cranial/spinal involvement. We report a rare case of CCC metastasis to the spine and cranium that was treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. CCC should be considered an exceedingly rare etiology with treatment options aimed solely at palliation. This case supplements the existing literature to inform medical and surgical decision-making.

Authors: Herrero JI, Ampuero J, Fernández Rodríguez CM Abstract Hepatitis C is a major cause of liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, as well as the primary indication for liver transplant in Europe. The highly effective direct-acting antivirals currently available make it possible to achieve the hepatitis C elimination targets set by the World Health Organization. For this, population screening and one-step diagnosis are fundamental strategies. PMID: 32611193 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Our work represents the initial experience in the liver transplantation technique for thrombectomy in distinct and well-selected patients with atrial tumor thrombi. The effectiveness of this approach needs further study. The video presentation of our research took place in March 2019 at the 34th Annual EAU Congress in Barcelona. PMID: 32612649 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Thus incorporating albumin and bilirubin in a mathematical equation (for ALBI) or combining it with creatinine and grade of hepatic encephalopathy (for LaFAS) would help in prognosticate the patients with ACLF on admission in a resource limited setting thus enabling them to be transferred to a transplant center.

Conclusion: Post-transplantation treatment of chronic HCV is preferred in KTRs. The sofosbuvir/daclatasvir regimen as an interferon-free therapy is a safe, effective option for HCV infection in pediatric KTRs, who can tolerate sofosbuvir/daclatasvir well and respond favorably without significant adverse events.
