PURPOSE To describe the computer-tomographic (CT) aspects of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) in correlation to their histology. MATERIAL AND METHODS The medical records of all patients at our hospital with a histologic diagnosis of GIST between January 2002 and June 2006, and investigated before surgery by CT, were reviewed. Two radiologists with(More)
The intercostal hernia of the lung is a very rare extraordinary disease that requires operation because of the complaints and potential complications. The authors review cases of their operations and analyze the subsequence and treatment. Three patients have been treated for intercostal lung hernia in our treatment. The causes of this disease were a(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS This paper reports a series of 24 isolated caudate lobe resections (ICLR), performed for 13 benign tumors (10 hemangiomas, 2 focal nodular hyperplasias, 1 adenoma) and 11 malignant tumors (3 hepatocarcinomas, 1 peripheral cholangiocarcinoma and 7 metastatic - 5 colorectal carcinomas, 1 breast carcinoma, 1 adrenal carcinoma).

BACKGROUND/AIMS Because only 25% of colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) are initially resectable, we used several therapeutic strategies to convert to resectability some of the initially unresectable CRLM. Our results are presented herein. METHODOLOGY The therapeutical strategies were: (A) Liver resection after portal vein ligation--10 patients; (B) Staged(More)
Adrenal metastases (AM) from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are rarely seen in clinical practice. The treatment is not standardized, the indications and efficacy of different therapeutic approaches being still controversial. Between January 1995 and December 2005, 174 patients underwent liver resection for HCC in our center. AM were detected in four(More)
INTRODUCTION Initially considered experimental, liver transplantation (LT) has become the treatment of choice for the patients with end-stage liver diseases. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between April 2000 and October 2009, 200 LTs (10 reLTs) were performed in 190 patients, this study being retrospective. There were transplanted 110 men and 80 women, 159 adults(More)
We analyze a 123-cases experience over a 5-year period in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Liver resection, transplantation and hyperthermic ablation of the tumor were used according to the indication and patient selection. Systemic chemotherapy followed resection in 18 cases and hyperthermic ablation in 5 cases. Chemo-embolisation was(More)
Hepatic resection remains the only potential curative treatment for either primary or secondary liver tumors. In order to increase the resectability of initially unresectable tumors and to decrease the posthepatectomy morbidity and mortality, ligation and section of a portal branch with consecutive hepatic resection is recommended. Between September 1st(More)
In the year 2000, at the Department for General Surgery and Liver Transplantation from The Fundeni Clinical Institute Bucharest, seven OLTs and one living-related transplantation were performed in 6 adults and 2 children. Postoperative complications were: bile leakage, hemoperitoneum, lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage, parietoabdominal hematoma. There was(More)
Background: The objective of this study is to assess the outcome of the patients treated for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in a General Surgery and Liver Transplantation Center. Methods: This retrospective study includes 844 patients diagnosed with HCC and surgically treated with curative intent methods. Curative intent treatment is mainly based on(More)
