Advanced age is a risk factor of major abdominal surgery due to diminished functional reserve and increased comorbidity. Laparoscopy-assisted colectomy is a well-established procedure in colon cancer surgery. The aim of this study was to compare early outcome of elective laparoscopy surgery and open colectomy in colon cancer patients according to age. A(More)
AIM To investigate the efficacy (survival) and safety of treatments for recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in liver transplantation (LT) patients. METHODS Literature search was performed on available online databases without a time limit until January 2015. Clinical studies describing survival after HCC recurrence in LT patients were retrieved for a(More)
AIM Although the oncological adequacy of laparoscopic rectal resection (LR) appears equivalent to open resection (OR), its benefit is controversial in the elderly. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of LR on morbidity and mortality in octogenarians. METHOD This was a retrospective analysis of all patients who underwent rectal surgery(More)
CONTEXT The management of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after liver transplantation (LT) is challenging, especially if it is not treatable by surgery or embolization. OBJECTIVES The present study aims to compare the survival rates of liver transplanted patients receiving sorafenib or best supportive care (BSC) for HCC recurrence not amenable(More)
During liver transplantation (LT), the recipient hepatic artery (RHA) cannot always be used, and alternatives include aortohepatic conduits and the splenic artery (SA). We report our experience with arterial reconstruction on the recipient celiac trunk (RCT), which has rarely been described. Since January 2013, we have been using the RCT when the RHA could(More)
AIMS Due to the increasing number of solid organs transplantations, emergency abdominal surgery in transplanted patients is becoming a relevant challenge for the general surgeon. The aim of this systematic review of the literature is to analyze morbidity and mortality of emergency abdominal surgery performed in transplanted patients for graft-unrelated(More)
BACKGROUND Solitary splenic metastases are a rare occurrence, and the nasopharyngeal carcinoma represents one of the most uncommon primary sources. The present study aimed to describe a rare case of a solitary single splenic metastasis from nasopharyngeal carcinoma and to assess the number of cases of isolated nasopharyngeal carcinoma metastases to the(More)
The use of laparoscopy for advanced-stage rectal cancer remains controversial. This study aimed to compare the operative and oncologic outcomes of laparoscopic (LAR) versus open anterior rectal resection (OAR) for patients with pT4 rectal cancer. This is a multicenter propensity score matching (PSM) study of patients undergoing elective curative-intent LAR(More)
