The aim of this study was to identify and to classify anatomical hepatic artery (HA) variations concerning 932 HA dissections in liver transplantation (LT). Normal HA distribution was found in 68.1%. Variations of HA were detected in 31.9% and were divided into three groups describing 48 common hepatic artery (CHA) anomalies, 236 left or right hepatic(More)
BACKGROUND Use of some antiviral drugs for influenza infection is limited by potential rapid emergence of resistance. We studied the efficacy and safety of oseltamivir, the oral prodrug of the neuraminidase inhibitor GS4071, in adults with naturally acquired laboratory-confirmed influenza. METHODS We did a randomised controlled trial of 726 previously(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to evaluate the detection and characterization of nodules > or = 8 mm and small hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) in liver cirrhosis. METHOD Pathologic examination and results of US, helical CT, and dynamic MRI with gadolinium were compared after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) of 43 cirrhotic patients. Nodules(More)

The aim of diagnosis imaging is to detect hepatocellular carcinoma at an early stage, when a curative treatment is available. Biopsy is no longer required prior to treatment, and diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma is heavily dependent of imaging characteristics. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to describe the typical features of small (<20mm)(More)
OBJECTIVES The goals of this study were to assess the diagnostic accuracy of shear wave elastography (SWE) using the results of histopathological analysis as a standard of reference and compare the results of SWE and those of transient elastography (TE) to the degree of fibrosis as evaluated by histomorphometry. PATIENTS AND METHODS Adult patients who(More)
The recent introduction of high-end ultrasound equipment combined with recent contrast agents provides marked improvements in the characterization of focal liver lesions as previously reported by monocentric studies. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasonography (CEUS) using SonoVue as well as(More)
Arterial allograft represents a material of choice for primary arterial revascularization in liver transplantation (LT) when interposition of a vascular conduit is required. In case of non-availability of such graft, the use of cryopreserved vessels should be an interesting option. Three patients were grafted using a cryopreserved iliac artery allograft(More)
Chylothorax is a rare but severe complication of thoracic and esophageal surgery. The anatomical relations of the thoracic duct and its highly variable anatomy may explain the occurrence of thoracic duct injury during dissection of the posterior mediastinum. At an early stage, chylothorax can lead to severe cardiorespiratory and volemic complications. In(More)
PURPOSE To characterize and compare hepatocellular carcinoma and liver metastases of colorectal metastatic cancer (CMC) by means of quantitative liver perfusion MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS Liver perfusion was assessed in 26 HCC and CMC patients (50 nodules) by means of contrast-enhanced MRI. Six perfusion parameters-hepatic perfusion index (HPI), mean(More)
