All 72 resections for colorectal liver secondaries during the period 1971-1984 were analysed retrospectively. Liver tumours were single in 35 (49 per cent), unilateral in 55 (76 per cent) and associated with extrahepatic disease in 12 (18 per cent) patients. Operative mortality was 5.6 per cent. With respect to the disease in the liver, the presence or(More)
The pattern of relapse and factors influencing the site of recurrent disease were studied in 68 patients subjected to liver resection of colorectal metastases. Fifty-three (78%) patients had recurrence. Liver, lungs, and peritoneal cavity were most frequently involved, and all patients with relapse had recurrence in one or more of these sites.(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess and compare the accuracy of imaging methods (ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), angiography, arterially enhanced CT with computed tomographic arterial portography (CTA)), biochemical analyses, and surgical assessment during the operation, in detecting the presence of absence of hepatic metastases in patients with colorectal(More)
We report a case of congenital absence of the portal vein (CAPV) in an adult male who underwent resection for hepatocellular carcinoma. CAPV is a rare anomaly; only 29 cases, mostly in children, have been presented to date. An association between CAPV and cardiac abnormalities, polysplenia syndrome, skeletal abnormalities and liver tumors has been seen in(More)
PURPOSE To describe the radiologic findings in patients with spinal tuberculosis (TB). MATERIAL AND METHODS Out of a total of 503 patients with TB, 63 (13%) had involvement of the spine. RESULTS In 40 patients, the spine was the only location; 20 patients had concomitant chest TB. Conventional radiographs gave a good overview, CT visualized the(More)
BACKGROUND In most patients with pancreatic cancer, the tumor is unresectable. Nonoperative methods for palliation of jaundice, duodenal obstruction, and pain currently are being developed. Preoperative assessment of resectability of the tumor is becoming more and more important to avoid unnecessary operations. The aim of this study was to compare computed(More)
Percutaneous fine-needle aspiration biopsy is a commonly used diagnostic procedure with a high accuracy and a low complication rate. However, tumor seeding in the biopsy tracts has been recorded with a frequency of one in 20,000-40,000 biopsies. We report 5 cases of percutaneous tumor seeding recorded after 5,000 fine-needle biopsies of abdominal(More)
PURPOSE To describe the radiological findings of tuberculosis (TB) of the abdomen as reflected at our hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS The radiological files of 503 patients (referred to our institution mainly because of a clinical suspicion of malignancy, and found to have culture- or biopsy-proven TB) were reviewed in order to analyze the spectrum of the(More)
Twenty cases of cystic pancreatic neoplasms were examined over a 10-year period by the Department of Radiology, University Hospital, Lund, Sweden. Four patients had serous cystadenoma, seven had mucinous cystadenoma, and seven had mucinous cystadenocarcinoma. One patient had a mucin-producing ductal carcinoma, and one patient had a benign mucus cyst. The(More)
PURPOSE To give an overview of 503 patients with tuberculosis (TB) and to describe the radiologic findings of chest TB. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 503 patients with proven TB were reviewed; 266 had chest involvement. RESULTS Lung lesions were demonstrated in 214 patients. Infiltrates in the basal parts of the lungs or pleural effusion were often(More)
