Sigmoid diverticulitis with perforation and generalized peritonitis is a grave complication of diverticular disease. To compare accurately the results of two operative approaches--proximal colostomy with drainage and proximal colostomy with resection or exteriorization--the authors assessed the clinical and pathologic features of 121 consecutive patients(More)
The authors reviewed 23 cases of focal nodular hyperplasia and 13 cases of hepatic adenoma, all of which were confirmed pathologically. All solitary masses that exhibited normal or increased uptake of technetium 99m-sulfur colloid were shown to be hyperplasia; while previous criteria such as a central blood supply on angiograms or a central scar on computed(More)
The Registry of Hepatic Metastases has collected data on consecutive patients from 24 institutions who have undergone hepatic resection for colorectal carcinoma metastases. Patterns of recurrence were examined in a subgroup of 607 patients who had undergone curative resection of isolated hepatic metastases. Forty-three percent of these patient have had(More)
Follow-up data covering periods of two to 23 years have been collected on 60 patients who had resection of hepatic metastases for colorectal cancer. Multiple lesions were removed from 20 patients, and solitary lesions were excised from the other 40 patients. Only one patient died during hospital convalescence. No patient who had multiple lesions excised(More)
The records of 111 patients with gallbladder carcinoma operatively treated between 1972 and 1984 were retrospectively reviewed. Fifty-seven percent of patients had distant metastases; another 16% had nodal metastases without distant disease. Median survival was 0.5 years, and 5-year survival was 13%. Clinical jaundice, tumor stage, and tumor grade were all(More)
In this review of a collected series of patients undergoing hepatic resection for colorectal metastases, 100 patients were found to have survived greater than five years from the time of resection. Of these 100 long-term survivors, 71 remain disease-free through the last follow-up, 19 recurred prior to five years, and ten recurred after five years. Patient(More)
The records of all patients who underwent pylorus-preserving pancreatic resection (29 subtotal and 4 total pancreatectomies) during a 10-year period at the Mayo Clinic were reviewed. Thirty-day operative mortality was 6%. Early postoperative morbidity occurred in 45% of patients and necessitated reoperation in four patients. One patient had a hemorrhage(More)
In 1973, our study of patients with resectable hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer compared survival of 60 patients who had metastases removed with survival of 60 patients with similar lesions that had been biopsied only. We concluded that excision of small, apparently solitary metastatic lesions could be justified on the basis of the low operative(More)
Based on strict predefined histologic criteria, we identified 23 patients with hepatic adenoma and 41 patients with focal nodular hyperplasia seen at this institution between 1961 and 1980. Patients with hepatic adenoma were young and 91% were female. When a reliable history was available, 89% had used oral contraceptives; 53% presented acutely or with(More)
The surgical management of 29 adults with choledochal cysts is reviewed with emphasis on clinicopathologic features, long-term postoperative results (mean 9.1 years), and factors affecting outcome. Clinical symptoms were characterized by abdominal pain, jaundice, and cholangitis. Coexistent hepatobiliary pathologic findings were more complex and frequent(More)
