Abstract Background Portal vein embolization (PVE) is used before major hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to increase future liver remnant (FLR) volume. However, this may increase tumour growth rate, leading to more extensive resections. This study aimed to determine the effect of tumour growth, following PVE, on treatment plan. Method Retrospective cohort study conducted on patients treated from 2008 to 2015 with PVE before major hepatectomy for HCC. Liver and tumour volumetry was ...

Abstract Background /Objective. To determine the outcomes of a non-operative management approach for sporadic, small, non-functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours. Methods A retrospective chart review of patients with non-functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours initially managed non-operatively at a single institution was performed. Patients were identified through a search of radiologic reports, and individuals with ≥2 cross-sectional imaging studies performed >6 months apart from Jan....

TPS724Background: CO.28 is a phase II study which aims to determine if patients with stage I/II rectal cancer can be treated with induction chemotherapy (FOLFOX/CAPOX) and organ-preserving transanal microsurgery. Prior studies have explored the use of pelvic chemoradiation followed by transanal microsurgery as a means to increase organ preservation. However, pre-operative radiation may have acute and prolonged impacts such as wound complications and adverse on sphincter, sexual and urinary funct...

Abstract Background The left renal vein (LRV) may be used for venous reconstruction during hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery, although concerns exist about compromising renal function. This study aimed to determine renal outcomes following LRV harvest during HPB resections. Methods Circumferential PV/SMV resections from 2008 to 2014 were included within two groups (LRV harvest, Control). Absolute and change in Creatinine (Cr) and estimated GFR (eGFR), and rates of acute kidney injury (AKI) ...

Abstract Background Stage 3 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is defined by arterial involvement. This study objective was to evaluate outcomes for patients with stage 3 PDAC with potentially reconstructable arterial involvement, considered for neoadjuvant therapy (NAT) and pancreatic resection, and to compare outcomes following arterial (AR) and non-arterial resection (NAR). Methods This study included patients from 2009 to 2016 with biopsy-proven stage 3 PDAC who were offered NAT before ...

Initially described in the colorectal literature, enhanced recovery after surgery (ERaS) is a concept that emphasizes minimization of the physiologic disturbances produced by surgery – and focuses on interventions that minimize surgical stress – and promotes rapid recovery to presurgical levels of function. The introduction of ERaS protocols also provides a prime opportunity to additionally improve perioperative quality of care by systemizing the processes of care for patients according to the b...

Resection of colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) improves survival compared with systemic therapy alone. Technical resectability requires preservation of adequate functional liver remnant with biliary drainage, vascular inflow and outflow. Assessment for resectability should be predicated on high-quality cross-sectional imaging. Systemic therapy is an essential part of treating CRLM; sequence of treatment should be discussed in a multidisciplinary setting, particularly in the setting of synchrono...
