Recent work demonstrated the presence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in the bile and gallbladder of more than 75 % of patients with gallbladder cancer and more than 50 % of patients with chronic cholecystitis. The aim of the work was to determine the prevalence of H. pylori in the gallbladder of patients operated on for chronic cholecystitis and(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation (LRFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) under guidance of intra-operative laparoscopic ultrasound (IOLUS) aiming of obtaining additional information for liver situation, better tumor staging and effective treatment of hepatic focal lesion (HFL) in patients with a difficult percutaneous approach. METHODS(More)
Evidences supporting the association between H. pylori infection and chronic cholecystitis could be found by using direct culture or staining of H. pylori in gallbladder tissues as well as indirect techniques. Stool antigen test has been widely used due to its noninvasive nature. Various stool antigen tests were developed to detect H. pylori using an enzyme(More)
The major histocompatibility complex class I-related gene A (MICA) is an antigen induced by stress and performs an integral role in immune responses as an anti-infectious and antitumor agent. This work was designed to investigate whether (SNP) rs2596542C/T in MICA promoter region is predictive of liver cirrhosis (LC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or(More)
Laparoscopic assisted percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (LAPRFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) under guidance of intra-operative laparoscopic ultrasound (IOLUS) is a new modality for obtaining additional assessment of the liver situation, better tumor staging and effective treatment for the hepatic focal lesion (HFL), in patients with a difficult(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Major surgery performed as a day surgery procedure is not uncommon. The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of day surgery procedures in laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 210 patients scheduled for elective LC between 2006 and 2008 were included in our study. The mean age was 40.63 years (range,(More)
