BACKGROUND The laparoscopic approach has been proposed for treating hepatic cystic echinococcosis (HCE) and has already been used in clinical practice, mostly for non-radical operations. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the feasibility of total cystectomy of HCE under laparoscopy (LS). RESULTS A retrospective review of the medical records obtained from(More)
A new surgical approach (subadventitial cystectomy) has been developed for liver hydatid disease. We retrospectively compared clinical outcomes and immune status 24 months after a subadventitial cystectomy with traditional surgical approaches. Patients with liver hydatid cysts were treated with a subadventitial cystectomy (N = 11), pericystectomy (N = 16),(More)
Echinococcus granulosus infection causes cystic echinococcosis (CE); the generation of liver fibrosis around the parasitic larval cyst (metacestode) may play a major role in the spontaneous limitation of the parasitic growth; however, fibrogenesis has received little attention in CE. It has been reported that miR-19b plays a role in various diseases,(More)
Human cystic echinococcosis is a zoonosis caused by the larval cestode Echinococcus granulosus. Hepatocellular carcinoma is one of the most common types of cancer in the whole world including China. A few reports about cystic echinococcosis concurrent with hepatocellular carcinoma were noted until now. In addition, the association between these two diseases(More)
In this study, we aimed to compare the clinical efficacy of liposomal albendazole (L-ABZ) and tablet-albendazole (T-ABZ) for the treatment of human hepatic cystic echinococcosis (CE). Sixty patients with single cyst (CE1) or daughter cyst (CE2) were included in this study and were nonrandomly divided into the L-ABZ group (n1⁄4 30, 10 mg/kg per day, p.o.,(More)
OBJECTIVE To understand the performance of echinococcosis chemotherapy in echinococcosis endemic areas in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region (Xinjiang). METHODS A questionnaire survey was conducted in the First Affiliated Hospital of Xinjiang Medical University, Hoboksar Mongolia autonomous county, Ermin and Yumin counties from April to June in 2013.

Alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is a life-threatening human disease caused by Echinococcus multilocularis transmitted between rodents and dogs/foxes in the Northern Hemisphere. The study aims to identify the genetic variation of the parasite in AE patients from China. E. multilocularis isolates were collected from wild small mammals (n = 6) and AE patients (n(More)
The nanosecond pulsed electric field (nsPEF) is investigated as an alternative plan for benign hepatic hydatid cyst. Altogether 72 C57B6 mice were included. Normal group (n = 12) had no parasite injection and the other 60 mice were used to induce hydatid cyst in liver by injecting protoscolices in portal vein. The liver hydatid cysts were exposed to nsPEF(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical efficiency of chemotherapy for the treatment of human alveolar echinococcosis (AE). Twenty-four patients who suffered from late-stage AE were enrolled in this study. The classification of the disease stages was performed according to the PNM (parasite lesion, neighboring organ invasion, metastases)(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated two surgical procedures, total splenectomy and spleen-preserving surgery, for the treatment of spleen cystic echinococcosis (CE). METHODS A total of 21 patients who underwent surgery for removal of spleen CE were evaluated retrospectively. Patients were divided into two groups, those who received a total splenectomy (n=7)(More)
