Factors associated with viral breakthrough in lamivudine monoprophylaxis of hepatitis B virus recurrence after liver transplantation
Patients transplanted for fulminant hepatitis B and cirrhotic patients in whom HBV DNA could be rendered PCR negative before liver transplantation are unlikely to develop YMDD mutation on lamivudine monoprophylaxis. Expand
Intrahepatic stones - an etiological quagmire.
Mutation of p53 in recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma and its association with the expression of ZBP-89.
The results showed that mutations in the p53 gene were frequently detected in recurrent HCC and the interval between surgical resection and the recurrence of HCC was significantly longer in patients with the wild-type p 53 gene than those with mutations, strongly suggesting a pathological role for the mutant p53 genes in HCC recurrence.

Induction of Fas and Fas ligand expression on malignant glioma cells by Kupffer cells, a potential pathway of antiliver metastases.
A novel pathway of Kupffer cells against liver metastases is supported, in which tumor cells were apoptotic via the Fas-Fas ligand system induced by TNFalpha released from K upffer cells. Expand
The longest survivor and first potential cure of an advanced cholangiocarcinoma by ex vivo resection and autotransplantation: a case report and review of the literature.
Ex vivo liver resection and Atx can be a viable option for cure among highly selected patients with CC, and a patient who has survived for 17 months without any sign of tumor recurrence is reported, probably the world's first cure using this technique. Expand
Familial occurrence of acinic cell carcinoma of the parotid gland.
The case of a 35-year-old man who underwent excision of a left parotid gland acinic cell carcinoma and his daughter presented at the age of 16 years with a nontender parotide gland mass that was excised and found also to be aciniccell carcinoma, the first such report of which is aware. Expand
Does patient position during liver surgery influence the risk of venous air embolism?
The effect on venous pressures caused by the change in patient positioning alone during liver surgery does not affect the risk of venous air embolism. Expand
Critical graft size and functional recovery in living donor liver transplantation.
Graft function in LDLT recovers more slowly than in cadaveric liver transplant, and small-for-size graft syndrome can be avoided if GRWR > 1%, but often occurs when GRWR < 0.8%. Expand
