BACKGROUND: Even with standardization and increasing experience, laparoscopic cholecystectomy still entails the risk of injury to the bile ducts. The incidence of iatrogenic bile-duct injury is currently estimated at 0.3–0.9%. In spite of the downward trend compared to the historical course, the incidence of iatrogenic bile duct injuries is still higher and(More)
Background: Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is now a standard method for providing long-term enteral nutrition in patients who are unable to swallow. The aim of our study was to document clinical data that would allow prediction of a possible complicated clinical course. Methods: The study was carried out retrospectively. Clinical data of(More)
Focal lesions of the liver represent a significant diagnostic problem for various imaging modalities. The aim of this study was to assess the value of power Doppler sonography versus conventional color Doppler imaging in the depiction of hypervascular focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) of the liver and to investigate the resistive index (RI) in the lesions'(More)
Laparoscopic appendectomy is widely used for the treatment of complicated appendicitis. Its use in patients with high operative risk is still on debate. The aim of the presented study was to investigate the benefits of laparoscopic appendectomy in patients with high peri- and postoperative risk factors. We performed a retrospective analysis of all patients(More)
Background: Intraabdominal organ injuries are sustained by 40 to 50% of polytraumatized patients. The spleen is most commonly affected. While 95% of pediatric cases will not require surgery, this is the case with only 5 to 10% of adults. Methods: Organ preservation is desirable, even in emergency cases with splenic rupture. Of the techniques available for(More)
GRUNDLAGEN: Zur palliativen Therapie einer malignen Magenausgangsstenose wird bis heute meistens eine Gastroenterostomie angelegt. Dieser Eingriff hat aber eine signifikante Morbiditäts- und Mortalitätsrate und ist häufig mit einer Magenentleerungstörung assoziiert. Die endoskopische Stentimplantation zur symptomatischen Therapie einer malignen(More)
Because bronchogenic cysts may be found in or near any organ derived from the embryonic foregut, they sometimes pose considerable diagnostic difficulties. We describe the plain chest X-ray, computed tomographic, and angiographic findings in a patient with elevated CA 19-9 and upper quadrant abdominal pain due to a cystic tumor appearing as a hepatic mass.(More)
Enteroenteric intussusceptions in adults are rare events caused by tumors in most cases. A case of duodenojejunal intussusception is presented which became manifest because of marked biliary obstruction and extensive pancreatic atrophy. As lead point, a large duodenal polypous hamartoma could be identified. The role of ultrasound and CT as diagnostic(More)
BACKGROUND: The preoperative planning of liver resections is commonly based on two-dimensional imaging techniques such as sonography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging. The operability of liver tumors depends on the three-dimensional relation of the parenchyma to be resected to the intrahepatic vascular structures which define the(More)
Due to ameliorated surgery as well as better immunosuppression, the recipient age after liver transplantation has been extended over the past years. This study aimed to investigate the health related quality of life after liver transplantation in recipients beyond 60 years of age. The SF-36 was used to evaluate the recipients’ health-related quality of life(More)
