Dynamic Changes in Normal Liver Parenchymal Volume During Chemotherapy for Colorectal Cancer: Liver Atrophy as an Alternate Marker of Chemotherapy-Associated Liver Injury
The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence, origin, and clinical significance of liver atrophy during chemotherapy for colorectal cancer. This study included 103 patients whoExpand
Portal vein territory identification using indocyanine green fluorescence imaging: Technical details and short‐term outcomes
Portal vein (PV) territory identification during liver resection may be performed using indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence imaging technique. However, the technical details of the fluorescenceExpand
Esophageal motion characteristics in thoracic esophageal cancer: Impact of clinical stage T4 versus stages T1-T3
Purpose The main purpose was to investigate the differences of the esophageal motion (EM) and the internal target volume (ITV) margins for the esophagus between clinical T1-T3 (cT1-T3) and cT4 cases,Expand
Effects of alcohol consumption on multiple hepatocarcinogenesis in patients with fatty liver disease
The number of patients with fatty liver disease (FLD) is increasing globally. Ethanol consumption in FLD is known to be associated with an increased risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but theExpand
18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Uptake in Hepatocellular Carcinoma as a Useful Predictor of an Extremely Rapid Response to Lenvatinib
Background and Aims: This study aimed to identify the utility of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) as a predictor of the response ofExpand
Feasibility of Intraoperative Navigation for Liver Resection Using Real-time Virtual Sonography With Novel Automatic Registration System
BackgroundThe clinical feasibility and usability of intraoperative ultrasonography (IOUS) tracked by computed tomography (CT) images have been proposed; however, it requires technically demandingExpand
Time-to-Interventional Failure as a New Surrogate Measure for Survival Outcomes after Resection of Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Purpose This study sought to investigate the clinical impact of repeated interventions for recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and to establish a new surrogate measure for survival: theExpand
Expanded Makuuchi's criteria using estimated indocyanine green clearance rate of future liver remnant as a safety limit for maximum extent of liver resection.
BACKGROUND Recent advances in liver surgery have dramatically improved the safety of hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The aim of this study was to compare outcomes for patientsExpand
No‐touch ablation in hepatocellular carcinoma has the potential to prevent intrasubsegmental recurrence to the same degree as surgical resection
The aim of this study was to clarify the utility of a no‐touch pincer ablation procedure that uses bipolar electrodes to prevent intrasubsegmental tumor recurrence after radiofrequency ablation (RFA)Expand
Platelet-Albumin Score as a Sensitive Measure for Surgical Risk Prediction and Survival Outcomes of Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma
BackgroundGiven that patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) usually suffer from dual diseases (i.e., HCC and underlying liver disease), a complete survival estimation model is difficult toExpand
