BACKGROUNDS/AIMS According to 7th AJCC TNM staging system, gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) with lymph node (LN) metastasis is classified as N1 or N2; thus making the stage IIIB (N1) or IVB (N2). Stage IIIB consists of N1 status with wide coverage of T1-3, but T3N1 group often showed poorer outcomes than T1-2N1 groups. This study intended to assess(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to describe our experience with pure laparoscopic right hepatectomy (LRH) and to compare its outcomes with those of open right hepatectomy (ORH) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with liver cirrhosis. BACKGROUND Laparoscopic liver resection has been reported as a safe and effective approach for the management of liver cancer;(More)
Combined hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-CC) is rare. This study investigated the clinicopathological features of cHCC-CC and compared the postresection survival outcomes of cHCC-CC, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IHC). Between January 2000 and September 2012, 53 patients with cHCC-CC underwent(More)
We present a rare case of functional stenosis of the jejunal loop following left hepatectomy and hepaticojejunostomy long after pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD), which was successfully managed by balloon dilation. A 70-year-old Korean man had undergone PPPD 6 years before due to 1.8 cm-sized distal bile duct cancer. Sudden onset of(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS With the introduction of rituximab prophylaxis, the survival of ABO-incompatible (ABOi) adult living donor liver transplant (ALDLT) has been strikingly improved due to the decreased incidence of antibody-mediated rejection. However, biliary stricture (BS) related to ABO incompatibility remains an unresolved concern. METHODS Excluding 105(More)
A small proportion of gallbladder carcinomas (GBC) are incidentally detected after laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). This study intended to analyze the effect of extended reoperation on the long-term outcome of patients with pT1b/T2 GBC who had initially undergone LC. A cohort of 203 patients who underwent R0 resection and whose pathology was pT1b or pT2(More)
BACKGROUND Only a limited number of centers have performed laparoscopic living donor hepatectomy to date. In particular, laparoscopic right hepatectomy is rarely performed because the procedure can only be performed by surgeons with significant experience in both laparoscopic liver surgery and liver transplantation with living donor liver grafts. METHODS(More)
The aim of the study was to report surgical outcomes (efficacy and safety) of laparoscopic major hepatectomy for various liver diseases.Although the number of laparoscopic liver resections has increased, expansion of laparoscopic major hepatic resection remains limited, mainly owing to the technical difficulties for the procedure as compared to open(More)
Endovascular stenting is accepted as an effective treatment for patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS). We herein present a case of successful endovascular treatment. A 46-year-old woman, who was followed up for 10 years after a diagnosis of BCS, showed progression progressive of liver cirrhosis and deterioration deteriorated of liver function. Three main(More)
BACKGROUNDS/AIMS There are few guidelines for tailored immunosuppressive regimens for liver transplantation (LT) recipients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). To establish long-term immunosuppressive regimens suitable for Korean adult LT recipients, we analyzed those that were currently in use at a single high-volume institution. METHODS This(More)
