BACKGROUND Impairment of liver function is the most serious complication that occurs after liver resection or in cirrhotic liver. Postoperative hepatic failure, which is mainly preceded by insufficient remnant liver function and/or postoperative septic complications, is the major cause of hospital mortality. This study was undertaken to evaluate hepatic(More)
Our previous salivary study had demonstrated an apparent T helper 2 (Th2)-predominance in saliva of oral lichen planus (OLP) patients and suggested a potential of salivary interleukin-4 (IL-4) as a biomarker for monitoring disease severity. To further determine the consistency of Th1/Th2 bias of OLP, this study investigated the expression profile of(More)
BACKGROUND Thalidomide was originally marked as a sedative and anti-emetic, but was withdrawn after severe teratogenic effects had been discovered. More recently it has been claimed to alleviate a wide range of inflammatory disorders and malignancies. Studies showed that thalidomide might play a role in the management of some oral premalignant conditions(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to explore the preoperative diagnosis and surgical modality of patients with hepatic tuberculous pseudotumor. METHODS Of 682 patients who had undergone liver resection from January 1988 to December 2004, 8 were confirmed pathologically as having hepatic tuberculous pseudotumor after operation. Their clinical features,(More)
BACKGROUND Many small veins are called accessory, short hepatic veins in addition to the right, middle and left hepatic veins. The size of these veins varied from a pinhole to 1 cm; the size of inferior right hepatic veins (IRHVs) is thicker than that of short hepatic veins or more than 1 cm occasionally. Adults have a higher incidence rate of the IRHV. (More)
BACKGROUND This study was to clarify the high risk factors for subphrenic infection (SI) after liver resection for patients with hepatic malignancy. METHODS Three hundred and sixty-eight patients who had undergone hepatectomy from January 1985 through June 2002 were randomly divided into 2 groups according to resection of liver parenchyma, hepatic(More)
BACKGROUND In the isolated liver perfusion (ILP) technique, the liver is temporarily isolated from the systemic circulation in order to infuse large doses of chemotherapeutic agents through the hepatic inflow. The hepatic tissue can show a drug concentration higher than that after systemic chemotherapy, and a general toxic reaction from chemotherapeutic(More)
