Thoracic duct injury is an uncommon complication of esophagectomy. Experience in managing these cases is limited to large centers performing esophagectomies in good numbers. We analyzed the prospectively maintained esophageal diseases database of patients presenting to a surgical unit between 1982 and 2002. Among 552 esophagectomies during this period we(More)
BACKGROUND Endometriosis is a distressing gynecological disorder. Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is specific for recognition of the molecular pattern of gram-negative bacteria. TLR4 is present on the surface of endometrial cells. Their role in the molecular pathogenesis of endometriosis is postulated through a novel explanation. OBJECTIVE To study the TLR4(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) are part of a heterogeneous and complex metabolic group of disorders that share common pathophysiological circumstances, including β-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance. The protein Calpain 10 (CAPN10) plays a role in glucose metabolism, pancreatic β-cell insulin(More)
A significant number of patients awaiting liver transplantation have associated renal failure and renal dysfunction is associated with increased morbidity and mortality after LT. There has been a recent increase in the number of CLKT in adults. The common indications for CLKT in children are different from those of adults and include metabolic diseases(More)
Renal dysfunction is common in patients awaiting liver transplantation (LT) and affects outcome following LT. Combined liver and kidney transplantation (CLKT) has been proposed as effective treatment for patients with chronic diseases of both organs, some with hepatorenal syndrome and for liver-based metabolic diseases affecting kidney. This study is(More)
BACKGROUND Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a recommended first line therapy for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Serious complications such as neutropenic sepsis and hepatic decompensation are well known, but rupture of HCC following TACE is a rare and potentially fatal complication. The aim of this study was to identify the(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the expression of tumor suppressor genes p53, fragile histidine triad gene (FHIT), and an oncogene insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) as prognostic markers in the etiology of esophageal cancer. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) was performed in 39 archival tissue samples of different esophageal pathologies for the three genes.(More)
AIM Aurora-A is a serine/threonine protein kinase that functions in centrosome maturation and spindle assembly and is involved in regulating chromosome segregation. It is amplified and overexpressed in several human cancers. The aim of the present study was to assess the role of T91A Aurora-A gene polymorphism associated with aneuploidy in human tumors. (More)
Autophagy is an intracellular lysosomal degradation process performed by the cells to maintain energy balance. The autophagy response plays an important role in the progression of liver disease due to hepatitis virus infection, alcoholic liver disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, liver cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). An increased(More)
Breast cancer (BC) is the commonest cancer in women worldwide with a widely variable incidence between countries and regions. BC is either familial or sporadic. Mutations in tumor suppressor gene, PTEN has been associated with syndromic BC and in a subset of sporadic BCs. The present study was carried out in archival formalin fixed paraffin embedded(More)
