Surgical treatment of metachronous rectal liver and lung metastases: A combined videolaparoscopic and videothoracoscopic...
TACE is a more cost-effective strategy than TACE-sorafenib for the treatment of unresectable HCC.
Neither the administration of terlipressin nor splenectomy improved liver regeneration after 70% partial hepatectomy in rats. Further studies assessing the regulation of portal venous pressure as well as extended hepatectomy animal models and liver function tests will help to further investigate mechanisms of liver regeneration.
Early experience with the CWPJ is encouraging, and this anastomosis may be a safe and effective way to lower POPF rates.
Selection of proper pancreatic reconstruction according to the risk factors of patients may reduce POPF and postoperative complications and mortality. PG is superior to PJ as regards short-term outcomes in high-risk group but PJ provides better pancreatic function in all groups and therefore, PJ is superior in low- and moderate-risk groups.
The risk of PPFH was found to be increased with high potential malignancy and high grade of POPF. Angiography-embolization is one of the major and effective therapies for PPFH. Extraluminal-intraluminal PPFH is more serious and needs more aggressive treatments.
In this interferon-free era, PegIFN-based regimens remain a safe and effective option for selected HCV patients.
H. pylori and 17β-estradiol, separately or in combination, promoted cell proliferation and suppressed apoptosis of HIBECs in vitro. The above phenomena might be related to oxidative stress and its subsequent DNA damage with H. pylori and 17β-estradiol.
