BACKGROUND AND AIMS Thermo-ablation by radiofrequency is recognized as a curative treatment for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma. However, local recurrence may occur because of incomplete peripheral tumor destruction. Multipolar radiofrequency has been developed to increase the size of the maximal ablation zone. We aimed to compare the efficacy of(More)
INTRODUCTION Guidelines concerning the management of psychiatric disorders and addictive behaviors in patients with chronic hepatitis C and the conditions of collaboration between hepatogastroenterologists, infectiologists, psychiatrists and psychologists have not been published. This has a negative influence on optimal therapeutic management of chronic(More)
More than 90% of cases of hepatocellular carcinoma occur on the background of chronic liver disease. Its diagnosis should therefore be based on six-month ultrasound screening, which should be started in these patients. The positive diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma is based on its vascularization examined on dynamic CT or MRI images after contrast(More)
To evaluate prognostic factors associated with local control and disease-free-survival (DFS) of oligometastatic breast cancer patients treated by percutaneous thermal ablation (PTA). Seventy-nine consecutive patients (54.5 ± 11.2 years old) with 114 breast cancer metastases (28.9 ± 16.1 mm in diameter), involving the lungs, the liver, and/or the bone, were(More)
UNLABELLED Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has become a major public health issue. The goal of this study was to assess the clinical use of liver stiffness measurement (LSM) evaluated by supersonic shear imaging (SSI), FibroScan, and acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) in a cohort of NAFLD patients who underwent liver biopsy. A total of 291(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS The primary aim of this study was to compare the rate of global radiofrequency ablation (RFA) failure between monopolar RFA (MonoRFA) vs. no-touch multi-bipolar RFA (NTmbpRFA) for small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) ⩽5cm in cirrhotic patients. METHODS A total of 362 cirrhotic patients were included retrospectively across four French(More)
Interventional radiology is involved practically at each stage in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma, as recommended in the EASL-EORTC guidelines. It is even becoming more important as technological advances progress and as its long-term efficacy is assessed. Used curatively, thermoablation can obtain five-year survival rates of 40 to 70%, with a(More)
BACKGROUND Liver resection is the curative treatment for patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLMs), with five-year survival rates of 30-50%. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a local and useful alternative for patients with non-resectable CRLMs to obtain complete tumor clearance. The aim of this study was to analyze survival rates with this local(More)
Postoperative complications following prosthetic mesh repair are relatively rare and depend on the type and location of prosthetic mesh. They include abscess, hematoma, seroma, fistula, bowel obstruction, mesh retraction, granuloma and recurrent hernia. Computed tomography (CT) is the imaging examination of choice for the diagnosis of such complications.(More)
Improvement in survival of patients with HCC depends on detecting small lesions. This is possible by screening all patients with cirrhosis for HCC. However, these small lesions are difficult to characterise as only 50 to 80% of lesions less than 3cm have a typical HCC appearance, depending on the imaging technique used. MRI, with its various possibilities(More)
