AIM To describe the radiological findings of a macro-regenerative nodule (MRN) in the liver of pre-transplantation biliary atresia (BA) patients and to correlate it with histological findings. METHODS Between August 1990 and November 2007, 144 BA patients underwent liver transplantation (LT) at our institution. The pre-transplantation computer tomograghy(More)
BACKGROUND Gallbladder carcinoma is uncommon and may manifest as acute cholecystitis. An accurate diagnosis is helpful for operative planning and this study attempted to explore the distinctive clinical and computed tomographic (CT) features for differentiating acute cholecystitis alone from that with contemporaneous gallbladder carcinoma. METHODS This(More)
BACKGROUND There is growing evidence of clinical data recently for successful outcomes of non-operative management (NOM) for blunt hepatic and spleen injuries (BHSI). However, the effectiveness of NOM for high-grade BHSI remains undefined. The aim of the present study was to review our experience with NOM in high-grade BHSI and compare results with the(More)
AIM To compare clinical presentation and ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT) sensitivity between intraluminal and infiltrating gallbladder carcinoma (GBCA). METHODS This retrospective study evaluated 65 cases of GBCA that were categorized morphologically into the intraluminal-GBCA (n = 37) and infiltrating-GBCA (n = 28) groups. The clinical and(More)
OBJECTIVES Combined chemoradiotherapy with or without surgery is frequently performed as a curative treatment in patients with T3-4 locally advanced oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Computed tomography (CT) is frequently performed before and after chemoradiotherapy. The aim of this study is to evaluate the utility of the oesophageal wall thickness on CT(More)
BACKGROUND Many studies have shown that focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a positive regulator of tumor progression and invasion. However, there is still very limited information about the role of FAK in breast cancer. Tissue microarrays (TMA) can analyze thousands of tissue samples in a parallel fashion with minimal damage to the origin block. This study was(More)
PURPOSE Hand transplantations have been initiated and have been encouraged by promising results for more than 1 decade. The aim of this study was to present the first case of hand transplantation performed in Taiwan. MATERIALS AND METHODS On September 3, 2014, we transplanted the left distal forearm and hand of a brain-dead managed 37 years to a man aged(More)
BACKGROUND Fatty acid-CoA ligase 4 (FACL4) has been detected in various types of tumors. However, there is still very limited information about the role of FACL4 in breast cancer. Tissue microarray (TMA) technique analyzes thousands of specimens in a parallel fashion with minimal damage to the original blocks. This study was designed with the application of(More)
