AJCC 7th edition of TNM staging accurately discriminates outcomes of patients with resectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma
This year, the 7th edition of the AJCC staging manual has for the first time attributed a unique pTNM staging to intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IHCC) that is intended to replace the 2 Western andExpand
Benefit of initial resection of hepatocellular carcinoma followed by transplantation in case of recurrence: An intention‐to‐treat analysis
The high risk of failure of ST after initial LR for HCC within MC suggests the use of tissue analysis as a selection criterion and the salvage LT strategy should be restricted to patients with favorable oncological factors. Expand
Results of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy: a prospective study in 135 patients with morbid obesity.
LSG is a reproducible and seems to be an effective treatment to achieve significant weight loss after 12 months follow-up and can be used as a standalone operation to obtain weight reduction. Expand
Multicentre European study of preoperative biliary drainage for hilar cholangiocarcinoma
The aim of this study was to investigate current European practice regarding biliary drainage before hepatectomy for Klatskin tumours. Expand
Influence of Surgical Margins on Outcome in Patients With Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma: A Multicenter Study by the AFC-IHCC-2009 Study Group
In pN0 patients, R1 resection is the strongest independent predictor of poor outcome and a margin of at least 5 mm should be created, while in patients undergoing surgery for IHCC, the survival benefits of resection in pN+ patients and R1 surgery in general are very low. Expand
Incidental Gallbladder Cancer by the AFC-GBC-2009 Study Group
This study validates the concept of re-resection in T2 and T3 GBC, with minor liver resection and no common bile duct resection, and increases postoperative morbidity but does not improve survival. Expand
Life-threatening postoperative pancreatic fistula (grade C) after pancreaticoduodenectomy: incidence, prognosis, and risk factors.
Evaluating the incidence of postoperative grade C PF after pancreatoduodenectomy in patients in the northwest region of France showed that peroperative soft pancreatic parenchyma, peroperative blood transfusion, and postoperative bleeding were significant risk factors forgrade C PF, with P values of .011, .003, and .001.

Difficulty of Laparoscopic Liver Resection: Proposal for a New Classification
This objective and practical classification system allows the stratification of LLR comprising the low (group I), the intermediate (group II), and the high (group III) grades. Expand
Is port-site resection necessary in the surgical management of gallbladder cancer?
In patients with IGBC, PSE was not associated with improved survival and should not be considered mandatory during definitive surgical treatment. Expand
Learning curve for laparoscopic major hepatectomy
Evaluation of the learning curve for Laparoscopic major hepatectomy at a single centre finds no significant differences in the number of patients treated and the quality of the patients treated. Expand
