To compare the clinical outcomes of ex vivo liver resection and autotransplantation (ERAT) with allotransplantation in end-stage hepatic alveolar echinococcosis (HAE) patients.
This article was published in the following journal.
Radical resection is the best treatment for advanced hepatic alveolar echinococcosis (AE) patients. Liver transplantation is considered for selected advanced cases; however, shortage of organ donor an...
Few studies have analyzed the impact of liver cirrhosis on different hepatic inflow occlusion methods in laparoscopic liver resection (LLR). Intermittent Pringle (IP) was compared to continuous hemihe...
The aim of this study was to estimate probabilities of achieving the statistical cure from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with hepatic resection (HR) and liver transplantation (LT).
Despite refinements in surgical techniques for liver resection, evaluation of hepatic reserve disparity remains one of the most common problems in liver surgery, especially for hepatic malignancies su...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the sixth most common cancer in the world. For patients with intermediate HCC (BCLC stage B), transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) has been recommended ...
The goal of the study is to determine whether intravenous glucose administration before liver resection preserves hepatic glycogen resulting in improved hepatic metabolic function after th...

Up to 25% of newly diagnosed patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) have liver metastases (LM). Simultaneous colorectal and hepatic resection has been proven to be a safe and effective appr...
This single-center, prospective, randomized clinical trial is designed to compare the clinical characteristics and outcomes of hepatic resection and microwave ablation (MWA) to determine t...
A form of rapid-onset LIVER FAILURE, also known as fulminant hepatic failure, caused by severe liver injury or massive loss of HEPATOCYTES. It is characterized by sudden development of liver dysfunction and JAUNDICE. Acute liver failure may progress to exhibit cerebral dysfunction even HEPATIC COMA depending on the etiology that includes hepatic ISCHEMIA, drug toxicity, malignant infiltration, and viral hepatitis such as post-transfusion HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS C.
Conditions in which the LIVER functions fall below the normal ranges. Severe hepatic insufficiency may cause LIVER FAILURE or DEATH. Treatment may include LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
Passages within the liver for the conveyance of bile. Includes right and left hepatic ducts even though these may join outside the liver to form the common hepatic duct.
Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
