OBJECTIVE Compare oncologic results of laparoscopic versus open hepatectomy for resection of colorectal metastases to the liver. SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND DATA Open hepatectomy (OH) is the current standard of care for the management of colorectal liver metastases. Although the feasibility of laparoscopic hepatectomy (LH) has been established, only select(More)
BACKGROUND Resection and liver transplantation (LT) are the only curative options for hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhotic patients (HCC-cirr). OBJECTIVE We tried to define the best primary intention-to-treat strategy in patients undergoing either resection or LT for early single HCC-cirr (≤5 cm). METHODS From 1990 to 2010, 198 patients with early(More)
SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Chronic portal obstruction can lead to formation of portal cavernoma (PC). Half of all patients with PC will develop cholestasis, termed portal biliopathy, and some will progress to symptomatic biliary obstruction. Because of the high hemorrhage risk associated with biliary surgery in patients with PC, the optimal therapeutic(More)
Liver transplantation (LT) for cirrhotic/Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is associated with reduced survival in patients with poor histological features. Preoperative levels of alphafetoprotein (AFP) could predict negative biological features. AFP progression could be more relevant than static AFP levels in predicting LT outcomes. A total of 252(More)
UNLABELLED After liver transplantation (LT), postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC) occur in approximately 35% to 50% of the recipients. Among these PPC, pneumonia is the most frequently encountered. Pulmonary dysfunction has also been widely reported among patients awaiting LT. The links between this dysfunction and PPC have not been clearly(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal surgical strategy for patients with synchronous colorectal liver metastases (CLMs) is still unclear. The aim of this study was to compare simultaneous colorectal and hepatic resection with a delayed strategy in patients who had a limited hepatectomy (fewer than three segments). METHODS All patients with synchronous CLMs who(More)
Imaging detection of liver cancers and identification of the bile ducts during surgery, based on the fluorescence properties of indocyanine green, has recently been developed in liver surgery. The principle of this imaging technique relies on the intravenous administration of indocyanine green before surgery and the illumination of the surface of the liver(More)
Groove pancreatitis is a rare form of segmental chronic pancreatitis that involves the anatomic space between the head of the pancreas, the duodenum, and the common bile duct. We report 2 cases of groove pancreatitis with pancreatic heterotopia in the minor papilla. Patients were a 44-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man. Both had a past history of alcohol(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of the location of extrahepatic disease (EHD) on survival and to determine patient outcome in a consecutive series of patients with both intrahepatic and extrahepatic colorectal metastases treated by an oncosurgical approach, combining repeat surgery and chemotherapy. BACKGROUND Although recognized as poor prognostic(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the predictive value of portal vein pressure (PVP) after major liver resection for posthepatectomy liver failure (PLF) and 90-day mortality in patients without cirrhosis. BACKGROUND As elevated PVP is associated with liver failure after living donor liver transplantation, we hypothesized that the outcome after major hepatectomy may(More)
