The diagnostic findings of hepatocellular adenoma and focal nodular hyperplasia became more frequent in the last years in our as in western experience. The improvement in diagnostic technique, a correct pathological identification and the diffusion of oral contraceptives explain this increase of incidence. In our series were present 11 hepatocellular(More)
Sixteen patients underwent repeated hepatic resections over a 16 year period. The cases were divided into two groups: group A, non-planned repeated resections (14 cases), and group B, planned repeated resections (two cases). Group A is composed of patients requiring re-resection as a result of the hepatic re-recurrence of the neoplasia (three hepatocellular(More)
Hepatoblastoma in adults is a rare malignancy that presents in the epithelial or mixed epithelial-mesenchymal variants. We report two cases, the former representing the epithelial and the latter the mixed type. A 21 year-old woman with epigastric pain had abdominal ultrasound and CT scans showing a large hepatic mass. A right trisegmentectomy was performed.(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate feasibility, survival rate, complications and length of hospital stay in 47 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated by radiofrequency thermal ablation (RFTA). Though the treatment of choice for HCC is surgical resection, the strong association of this disease with cirrhosis often rules(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Liver metastases are a very common event. Multiple choices of therapies can be used. The aim of this paper is to analyze results and methods of a single institution series of 228 consecutive patients with colorectal liver metastases. METHODOLOGY 228 consecutive patients underwent hepatic resection for colorectal liver metastases. From(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The treatment of choice for hepatocellular carcinoma is surgical resection. Recurrence occurs in most patients. Aggressive treatment of liver recurrence increases patients' survival, but most frequently, these patients are not suitable for surgery. The aim of this study was to analyze the indications for and results of radiofrequency(More)
The Authors compare two groups of patients suffering from obstructive jaundice due to neoplasia of the head of the pancreas or the terminal bile duct who undergo bile drainage by means of cholecystostomy via the percutaneous transhepatic route, in order to reduce icterus, and subsequently undergo a duodenocephalopancreatectomy. The two groups are then(More)
The authors consider 88 cases of mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction mainly performed using the skin expander plus prosthesis method or latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flaps. At the same time, 53 patients underwent contralateral mastopexy for symmetry. The mean follow-up was 21 months (range 2-102). Progressive disease was observed in nine cases:(More)
To evaluate the prognostic value of serum copper (S-Cu) and ceruloplasmin and their pathophysiologic significance in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), we studied 49 patients with HCC (20 of which were submitted to partial hepatectomy) compared with 110 patients with liver cirrhosis. In HCC both S-Cu and ceruloplasmin were higher than in cirrhosis;(More)
