BACKGROUND Splenic vein thrombosis leading to sinistral portal hypertension and variceal bleeding is a complication of chronic pancreatitis. The management of these patients without variceal bleeding remains controversial. METHODS A total of 157 patients with chronic pancreatitis were managed consecutively in our center between January 1996 and December(More)
BACKGROUND Portal biliopathy (PBP) denotes intra- and extrahepatic biliary duct abnormalities that occur as a result of portal hypertension and is commonly seen in extrahepatic portal vein obstruction (EHPVO). The management of symptomatic PBP is still controversial. METHODS Prospectively collected data for surgically managed PBP patients from 1996 to(More)
Classifying Web services and labeling them based on their functional features have played a major role in several fundamental service management tasks, such as service discovery, selection, ranking, and recommendation. Existing approaches leverage text mining techniques and follow a supervised learning process, which involves building a classifier from a(More)
Increasing significance of tumor–stromal interaction in development and progression of cancer implies that signaling molecules in the tumor microenvironment (TME) might be the effective therapeutic targets for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Here, the role of microRNA miR-199a-3p in the regulation of TME and development of HCC has been investigated by(More)
The authors report the case of a patient who presented with small bowel obstruction while awaiting liver transplant for Child-Pugh class C cirrhosis. He underwent emergency liver transplant with resection of the small bowel after the obstruction did not improve with conservative management. The authors believe this is the first case of successful emergency(More)
We report a patient who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy for a cystic lesion in the region of the pancreatic head and duodenum. Preoperatively, we had suspected a malignant lesion; however, it turned out to be ectopic pancreatic tissue in the duodenal wall, with the changes of chronic pancreatitis and pseudocyst formation. With this report we seek to(More)
Postcholecystectomy bile duct injuries are a cause of significant morbidity and occasional mortality. Intraoperative recognition and repair of complete biliary transection with hepaticojejunostomy is the recommended treatment; however, it is possible only in few patients as either the injury is not recognized intraoperatively or the center is not geared up(More)
Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) in obese patients raises concerns with regards to obtaining grafts of "adequate" graft-to-recipient weight ratio (GRWR) and the impact of obesity on the outcomes of LDLT. LDLT outcomes in patients weighing ≥100 kg were compared with those weighing <100 kg. Patients weighing ≥100 kg were divided into 3 categories(More)
BACKGROUND Portal hypertension (PHT) is seen in 15% to 20% of patients with postcholecystectomy benign biliary stricture (BBS). Preliminary portosystemic shunt (PSS) has been recommended to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with direct stricture repair. Single-center experience of primary repair without preceding PSS in patients of BBS with PHT(More)
