Number of Lymph Node Metastases Is a Significant Prognostic Factor in Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma
Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IHCC) is a rare primary hepatic tumor. Outcomes after resection and the use of lymph node dissection have not been well described. From a prospective database, weExpand

Intratumoral artery on contrast-enhanced computed tomography imaging: differentiating intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma from poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma
AimDifferentiating intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) from poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma (p-HCC) is often difficult, but it is important for providing appropriate treatments. TheExpand

Perioperative management of hepatic resection toward zero mortality and morbidity: analysis of 793 consecutive cases in a single institution.
BACKGROUND The mortality rates associated with hepatectomy are still not zero. Our aim was to define the risk factors for complications and to evaluate our perioperative management. STUDY DESIGNExpand

Long-term results of hepatectomy for patients with alveolar echinococcosis: a single-center experience.
BACKGROUND Hepatectomy is the first-line treatment for alveolar echinococcosis (AE) if complete resection is feasible. However, a strategy for the treatment of patients with AE in whom the tumorExpand

Preoperative Evaluation of Hepatic Vasculature by Three-Dimensional Computed Tomographyin Patients Undergoing Hepatectomy
BackgroundHepatectomy is particularly difficult when the tumor is large, close to the inferior vena cava or the main trunk of the hepatic or portal vein, or in the caudate lobe, as well as when theExpand
