We report a case of leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava, which was successfully treated by surgical en bloc resection and reconstruction of the inferior vena cava, followed by adjuvant radiation therapy. A 39-year-old man presented with nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, and weight loss. Radiologic examinations showed a mass originating from the(More)
Living donor liver transplantation is now a common practice in countries in which the availability of cadaveric organs is limited. The preoperative preparation, intraoperative surgical technique, and postoperative care of donors and recipients have evolved in recent years. We retrospectively compared 67 donors with a remnant liver volume equal to or more(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common fatal cancer and an important healthcare problem worldwide. There are many studies describing the prognostic and predictive effects of epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (c-erb-B2) and epidermal growth factor receptor 1 (EGFR), transmembrane tyrosine kinases that influence cell growth and(More)
Biliary complications appear to be the leading cause of postoperative complications after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The aim of this study is to analyze the complications, treatment modalities, and outcomes of biliary anastomoses in a series of 50 consecutive right-lobe LDLTs. Median patient age was 45 years, and median right-lobe graft(More)
BACKGROUND Right lobe donations are known to expose the donors to more surgical risks than left lobe donations. In the present study, the effects of remnant volume on donor outcomes after right lobe living donor hepatectomies were investigated. METHODS The data on 262 consecutive living liver donors who had undergone a right hepatectomy from January 2004(More)
UNLABELLED Liver allografts from donors previously exposed to hepatitis B virus (HBV) carry the risk of transmission of HBV infection to immunosuppressed recipients. However, exclusion of donor candidates with the serologic evidence of resolved hepatitis B-HBV surface antigen (HbsAg) negative and HBV core antibody (anti-HBc) positive-is not feasible in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the spectrum of liver transplantation-related vascular complications that occurred in a single center over the past 14 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS Vascular complications and their clinical outcomes were reviewed among 744 liver transplant recipients. All patients underwent Doppler ultrasound with findings correlated with conventional(More)
A total of 112 living donor hepatectomies (LDHs) performed from October 1999 to April 2003 at Ege University Hospital Organ Transplantation Center were reviewed and perioperative anesthetic courses and complications were determined. There was no perioperative mortality. Mean duration of operations was 333 +/- 77 minutes (range, 160 to 540 minutes) for right(More)
Anatomical variations in the venous system of liver are not a rarity. A prospective helical computerized tomography (CT) study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of surgically significant hepatic venous anatomic variations among 100 consecutive living liver donors. The studies evaluated the ramification pattern of hepatic veins, the presence of(More)
BACKGROUND In liver transplantation or resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), patient selection depends on morphological features. In patients with HCC, we performed a clinicopathological analysis of risk factors that affected survival after liver transplantation. METHODS In 389 liver transplantations performed from 2004 to 2010, 102 were for HCC(More)
