Implantation of exfoliated malignant cells has been suggested as a possible mechanism of tumor recurrence in colorectal anastomoses that might be prevented by cytocidal washout. The aim of our study was to assess whether malignant cells are likely to be collected by a circular stapler introduced transanally to perform an anastomosis and to observe local(More)
The Banff Working Group on Liver Allograft Pathology reviewed and discussed literature evidence regarding antibody-mediated liver allograft rejection at the 11th (Paris, France, June 5-10, 2011), 12th (Comandatuba, Brazil, August 19-23, 2013), and 13th (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, October 5-10, 2015) meetings of the Banff Conference on Allograft(More)
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) induced c-Met activation is known as the main stimulus for hepatocyte proliferation and is essential for liver development and regeneration. Activation of HGF/c-Met signaling has been correlated with aggressive phenotype and poor prognosis in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MUC1 is a transmembrane mucin, whose over-expression(More)
Hepatoportal sclerosis (non-cirrhotic portal fibrosis) is characterised by portal hypertension, splenomegaly and variceal bleeding. It is rarely seen in childhood. We report on hepatoportal sclerosis in a patient with haematemesis as a presenting symptom. This 11-year-old male patient was admitted with upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGB). He was observed(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS There is increasing interest in noninvasive tests for the assessment of Helicobacter pylori infection, and urine-based tests have been widely used as noninvasive tests to detect Helicobacter pylori infection. The aim of this study was to evaluate the adaptation and usefulness of urine antibody enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and urine card(More)
Solitary fibrous tumors are unusual neoplasms that are rarely found in the liver parenchyma. They are usually described as hard, grayish white, well-defined lesions. Predominant cystic change in a solitary fibrous tumor is an unexpected finding, with only a few previous cases reported in the literature, two of which are localized in the head and neck(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (HRMRI) for preoperative local staging in patients with rectal cancer who did not receive preoperative radiochemotherapy. METHODS In this retrospective study, 30 patients with biopsy proved primary rectal cancer were evaluated by HRMRI. Two observers independently scored the(More)
Sir: A 14-day-old female patient was admitted to our hospital with the chief complaints of anorexia, high fever, erythematous rash, and maculopapular eruption. She was by spontaneous vaginal delivery born to a 33-year-old multigravida woman after 40 weeks gestation. Since her indirect bilirubin level was 25 mg/ dl on the 4th day of life, exchange(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to evaluate preoperative T and N staging and retroperitoneal surgical margin (RSM) involvement in colon cancer using multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). METHODS In this retrospective study, preoperative MDCTs of 141 patients with colon adenocarcinoma were evaluated in terms of T and N staging and retroperitoneal surgical margin(More)
OBJECTIVE Pathology education includes an important visual part supporting a wide range of theoretical knowledge. However, the use of traditional microscopes in pathology education has declined over the last decade and there is a lack of interest for microscopy. Virtual microscopy, which was first described in 1985 and has experienced a revolution since(More)
