Laparoscopic approach has been increasingly used in the treatment of pancreatic benign diseases. This report evaluates our experience with laparoscopic surgery for pancreatic insulinomas. Between July 2000 and December 2007, laparoscopic pancreatectomy was attempted in 29 consecutive patients with insulinomas. The localization of tumors, operating(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide. However, there is no general consensus as to which staging system is the most reliable for predicting the survival of patients with HCC. The aims of this study were to compare commonly-used staging systems in a cohort of Chinese HCC patients undergoing curative(More)
Anandamide amidase (EC 3.5.1.4) is responsible for the hydrolysis of arachidonoyl ethanolamide (anandamide). Relatively selective and potent enzyme reversible inhibitors effective in the low micromolar range, such as arachidonyl trifluoromethyl ketone (Arach-CF3), have been described (Koutek et al., J Biol Chem 269: 22937-22940, 1994). In the current study,(More)

An efficient and sensitive method for simultaneous determination of 102 pesticide residues in teas has been established and validated. The multi-residue analysis of the pesticides in teas involved extraction with acetone-ethyl acetate-hexane, clean-up using gel permeation chromatography (GPC) and solid-phase extraction (SPE), and subsequent identification(More)
BACKGROUND Post-pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) hemorrhage (PPH) is an uncommon but serious complication. This retrospective study analyzed the risk factors, managements and outcomes of the patients with PPH. METHODS A total of 840 patients with PD between 2000 and 2010 were retrospectively analyzed. Among them, 73 patients had PPH: 19 patients had early PPH(More)

METHODS Of seven cases of intra- and extrahepatic biliary damage resulting from hepatic artery embolization reported since 1987, 6 patients suffered from hepatic haemangioma, the other case was due to injection of TH compound into the(More)
AIM To analyze the operative and perioperative factors associated with hepatectomy of benign hepatic lesions. METHODS A total of 827 consecutive cases of benign hepatic lesion undergoing hepatectomy from January 1986 to December 2005 in the Chinese PLA General Hospital were investigated retrospectively according to their medical documentation. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND With the development of the associated technology, interventional treatment has become an important method for the treatment of hepatic artery occlusion in some countries. This study was undertaken to evaluate the role of interventional methods in the diagnosis and treatment of acute hepatic artery occlusion after liver transplantation. METHODS(More)
