Abstract Objective To investigate the perioperative use of Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (Ω3-FA) to reduce post-operative complications after liver surgery. Summary Background Data In a variety of animal models, Ω3-FA disclosed strong protective effects in alleviating hepatic ischemia/reperfusion injury and steatosis with enhancement of regeneration after major tissue loss. Given these benefits along with its safety profile, we hypothesized that perioperative administration of Ω3-FA in pat...

Abstract Objective Visceral artery pseudoaneurysms (VAPA) are associated with a high morbidity and mortality, but sometimes are missed in initial computed tomography (CT) examinations. The aims of this study were to determine the frequency and causes of misdiagnoses of VAPA with CT. Materials and Methods We retrospectively identified 77 patients with VAPA in our database who underwent contrast-enhanced CT. The frequency of delayed diagnosis was determined and the reasons were noted. We identifie...

Abstract Background Post hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) after ALPPS has been related to the discrepancy between liver volume and function. Pre-operative hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) can predict post-operative liver function and guide when it is safe to proceed with major hepatectomy. Aim of this study was to evaluate the role of HBS in predicting PHLF after ALPPS, defining a safe cut-off. Methods A multicenter retrospective study was approved by the ALPPS Registry. All patients selected fo...

Abstract Background Postoperative pancreatic fistula remains an unsolved challenge after pancreatoduodenectomy. Important in this regard is the presence of a soft pancreatic texture which is a major risk factor. Advances in machine learning and texture analysis of medical images allow identification of features of parenchyma that are invisible to the human eye. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of machine learning to predict postoperative pancreatic fistula based on preopera...

OBJECTIVE To investigate whether exercise improves outcomes of surgery on fatty liver, and whether pharmacological approaches can substitute exercising programs. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Steatosis is the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome, and decreases the liver's ability to handle inflammatory stress or to regenerate after tissue loss. Exercise activates adenosine monophosphate-activated kinase (AMPK) and mitigates steatosis; however, its impact on ischemia-reperfusion injury an...

Background ALPPS is found to increase the resectability of primary and secondary liver malignancy at the advanced stage. The aim of the study was to verify the surgical and oncological outcome of ALPPS for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC).

OBJECTIVE: The aims of the present study were to identify independent risk factors for conduit occlusion, compare outcomes of different AC placement sites, and investigate whether postoperative platelet antiaggregation is protective. BACKGROUND: Arterial conduits (AC) in liver transplantation (LT) offer an effective rescue option when regular arterial graft revascularization is not feasible. However, the role of the conduit placement site and postoperative antiaggregation is insufficiently answe...
