The role of liver resection in the management of intermediate and advanced stage hepatocellular carcinoma. A systematic review.
Background: The ideal management for patients with intermediate and advanced stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is controversial. The main purpose of this systematic review is to examine the role of liver resection...
Interaction of margin status and tumour burden determines survival after resection of colorectal liver metastases: A retrospective cohort study.
Purpose: We sought to determine the impact of surgical margin status on overall survival (OS) and recurrence pattern stratified by tumor burden.
Background: Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1) is re-expressed at the invasion front of colorectal cancer. CEACAM1 expression at metastatic sites remains to be investigated.
Background: The definition of parenchymal sparing surgery (PSS) for colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) diverges requiring a clarification of the concept.
Long-term outcome and quality of life after initial and repeat resection of colorectal liver metastasis: A retrospective analysis.
Background: Repeat hepatectomy is a widely accepted treatment for patients with recurrent colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM). The aim of this study was to compare initial and repeat hepatic resection concerning overall survival...
Downstaging therapy followed by liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma beyond Milan criteria.
Background: Orthotopic liver transplantation is a curative treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma within Milan criteria, but these criteria preclude many patients from transplant candidacy.
Liver transplantation in patients with liver metastases from neuroendocrine tumors: A systematic review.
Background: Liver transplantation to treat neuroendocrine tumors, especially in the setting of diffuse liver involvement not amenable to operative resection remains controversial. We sought to perform a systematic review...
Nomograms for prediction of long-term survival in elderly patients after partial hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma.
Background: Partial hepatectomy is an important treatment for elderly patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. However, prediction of long-term outcomes of an individual elderly patient after partial hepatectomy still is lacking.
Background: Later weekday of surgery seems to affect the prognosis adversely in oesophageal cancer, whereas any such influence on other cancer sites is unknown. This study aimed to test whether weekday of surgery influenced...
Background and aims: Thermo-ablation by radiofrequency is recognized as a curative treatment for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma. However, local recurrence may...
