Orthotopic liver transplantation with preservation of the inferior vena cava.
The piggyback method of liver insertion compared favorably with the standard operation in terms of patient survival, blood loss, incidence of vascular and biliary complications, and rate of retransplantation. Expand
The Incidence, Timing, and Management of Biliary Tract Complications After Orthotopic Liver Transplantation
Progress has been made on improving the result of biliary reconstruction after OLTx, and if significant additional improvement in patient and graft survival are to be obtained, the technical performance of OLTx must continue to improve. Expand
Experience in hepatic resection for metastatic colorectal cancer: analysis of clinical and pathologic risk factors.
The proposed mTNM staging system appears to be useful in predicting the outcomes after hepatic resection of metastatic colorectal tumors. Expand
The spectrum of portal vein thrombosis in liver transplantation.
It is concluded that a vast majority of the patients with thrombosis of the portal system can be technically transplanted and that their survival rate is comparable to that of patients with patent portal vein. Expand
Alveolar echinococcosis: MR findings in the liver.
The MR findings of alveolar echinococcosis in the liver are multiple small round cysts with a weakly enhanced solid component, and the cystic component can be a large and/or irregular lesion, and such lesions are depicted clearly at T2-weighted MR imaging. Expand
She4p/Dim1p interacts with the motor domain of unconventional myosins in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
She4p/Dim1p is involved in endocytosis and actin polarization through interactions with the type I myosins Myo3p and Myo5p, and was required for proper localization of Myo4p, which regulates polarization of ASH1 mRNA. Expand
Hepatic resection versus transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma.
During the 10-year period (1980 to 1989), 76 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were treated by subtotal hepatic resection (HX) and 105 patients by orthotopic liver transplantation (TX) under cyclosporine-steroid therapy, and the survival rates correlated well with pTNM stages and were similar in each stage between the two groups.

Treatment of fibrolamellar hepatoma with subtotal hepatectomy or transplantation
Fibrolamellar hepatoma (FL‐HCC) is an uncommon variant of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), distinguished by histopathological features suggesting greater differentiation than conventional HCC.Expand
A Human Anti‐CD40 Monoclonal Antibody, 4D11, for Kidney Transplantation in Cynomolgus Monkeys: Induction and Maintenance Therapy
The results indicate that the 4D11 appears to be a promising candidate for immunosuppression in clinical organ transplantation. Expand
Complications of Venous Reconstruction in Human Orthotopic Liver Transplantation
In 313 consecutive recipients of 393 orthotopic liver grafts, there were 51 (16.3%) and nine (2.9%) patients who had pre-existing portal vein and inferior vena cava abnormalities, respectively. TheseExpand
