Hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) represents a major cause of graft loss and mortality after liver transplantation. It occurs in up to 9% of adult recipients. The early diagnosis of HAT decreases septic complications, multiorgan failure, and graft loss, and there are better outcomes after treatment. In this study, we reviewed 102 episodes of HAT, which were(More)
Liver transplantation (LT) is the best treatment for end-stage hepatic failure, with an excellent survival rates over the last decade. Biliary complications after LT pose a major challenge especially with the increasing number of procured organs after circulatory death. Ischaemic cholangiopathy (IC) is a set of disorders characterized by multiple diffuse(More)
OBJECTIVES Orthotopic liver transplant is the treatment of choice for hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhotic patients with satisfactory oncologic and survival outcomes. Incidental hepatocellular carcinoma is frequently a reported finding in the explant pathology after orthotopic liver transplant. MATERIAL AND METHODS The present study retrospectively(More)
This report describes transplantation of liver allograft from a circulatory death donor who was supported by veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for 14 days and presented with severely altered liver functions. Successful liver transplant was done in a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the background of primary sclerosing(More)
Incidentally found focal liver lesions are a common finding and a reason for referral to hepatobiliary service. They are often discovered in patients with history of liver cirrhosis, colorectal cancer, incidentally during work up for abdominal pain or in a trauma setting. Specific points should considered during history taking such as risk factors of liver(More)
Hypothyroidism is a common comorbidity that on acute presentation is often overlooked. It can be an easily managed condition; however non-compliance can have severe consequences. In the presented case it was requirement for emergency surgery that resulted in stoma formation. This case is a first example of the need to include patient's decision making(More)
INTRODUCTION Hernias through the foramen of Winslow are extremely rare, accounting for 0.1% of all abdominal hernias. Delayed diagnosis is often observed, resulting in bowel strangulation and high mortality. METHOD We present a case of a patient with strangulated ileum herniated through the foramen of Winslow. Recent literature review was undertaken on(More)
Oesophageal cancer affects more than 450000 people worldwide and despite continued medical advancements the incidence of oesophageal cancer is increasing. Oesophageal cancer has a 5 year survival of 15%-25% and now globally attempts are made to more aggressively diagnose and treat Barrett's oesophagus the known precursor to invasive disease. Currently(More)
Primary hepatic tuberculosis (TB) is very rare in the UK, but the incidence may be rising. Three cases of primary hepatic TB in immunocompetent patients without evidence of pulmonary involvement are reported. The diagnosis was challenging as two patients had liver space-occupying lesions, and the third patient presented with liver abscess. All of them(More)
Hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) is the most serious vascular complication after liver transplantation. Multiple risk factors have been identified to impact its development. Changes in haemostasis associated with end stage liver disease and the disturbance of the coagulation and anticoagulation cascades play an important role in development of this lethal(More)
