Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) most commonly arises from chronic inflammation due to viral infection, as a result of genetic and epigenetic abnormalities. A global picture of epigenetic changes in HCC is lacking. We used methylated CpG island amplification microarrays (MCAMs) to study 6458 CpG islands in HCC and adjacent preneoplastic tissues [chronic(More)
A resected case of hepatocellular carcinoma which extended into the right atrium after treatment with hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC) is described. An 81-year-old man presented with right hypochondralgia. CT demonstrated a hypervascular tumor 11.5 cm in diameter extending into the right atrium through the right hepatic vein. The patient(More)
OBJECTIVE To retrospectively evaluate relative enhancement (RE) in the hepatobiliary phase of gadoxetic acid disodium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging as a preoperative estimation of future remnant liver (FRL) function in a patients who underwent portal vein embolization (PVE). MATERIALS AND METHODS In 53 patients, the correlation between the(More)
With advances in surgical procedures and perioperative management, hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgery, including hepatectomy and pancreaticoduodenectomy, has been employed for recurrent colon cancer. However, no report has described a case of major hepatectomy with the combined resection of hepaticojejunostomy following pancreaticoduodenectomy for(More)
The goal of this study was to determine which projection for percutaneous transhepatic portography best depicts the anatomy of the proximal portal vein. Portograms ( n = 47) obtained in the anteroposterior, right anterior oblique, and right anterior caudal oblique projections were analyzed retrospectively. Lengths of the right portal trunk, the transverse(More)
