The aim of the study is to obtain information on FLT used in a PET-scan as a marker for the proliferation of colorectal liver metastases, so that the risk of recurrence can be identified i...
Patients are invited to participate in a research study of liver perfusion (how blood flows to the liver over time). Researchers hope to learn whether perfusion characteristics of liver me...
The COLT trial is an investigator-driven, multicenter, non-randomized, open-label, controlled, prospective, parallel trial, aimed at assessing the efficacy (in terms of overall survival: O...
An increasing aggressiveness in the surgical approach of colorectal liver metastases is observed. This seems only justified when, besides prolongation of survival, also the health status o...
Hypothesis of the study: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy with Bevacizumab impairs postoperative outcome after resection of colorectal liver metastases.
A relatively high signal for choline-containing compounds (total choline, tCho) is commonly found in H MR spectra of malignant tumors, but it is unclear if this also occurs in tumors in the liver. We...
To investigate the ultrasonographic features of synchronous and heterochronic liver metastasis in patients with stromal tumors, and to elucidate the value of ultrasonic examination in follow-up surger...
Understanding the genetic background of a tumor is important to better stratify patient prognosis and select optimal treatment. For colorectal liver metastases (CLM), however, clinically available bio...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of systematic MRI with DWI for the detection of liver metastases (LM) in patients with potentially resectable pancreatic ductal carcinoma and ...
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) with cystic liver metastases is so rarely observed that there are only three cases reported in the published literature.
Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
An antineoplastic antimetabolite that is metabolized to fluorouracil when administered by rapid injection; when administered by slow, continuous, intra-arterial infusion, it is converted to floxuridine monophosphate. It has been used to treat hepatic metastases of gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas and for palliation in malignant neoplasms of the liver and gastrointestinal tract.
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.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
